Blue Cheese Crusted Filet Mignon with Port Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2010
This is an incredible meal. We will be having it as a special treat for Christmas dinner. I recommend serving it with mashed potatoes and sauteed mushrooms. I have even omitted the fresh herbs and it still works!

Thai Sweet Sticky Rice With Mango (Khao Neeo Mamuang)

Reviewed: May 14, 2010
I made as directed, but I only used about 3/4 of a cup of sugar. I can imagine with the full cup it would have been way too spicy. You definitely want a lot of mango as the rice is good without it, but AMAZING with it. It also makes it a healthier choice to have more mango and less rice! I did not make the sauce for the top and left out the sesame seeds. BTW, 1 1/2 cups of coconut milk is the same as one (almost 14 oz.) can. Just made it with medium grain rice too and it was "sticky" enough. Recommend!!!

Wilted Spinach

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
This was a decent recipe. It made way too much dressing and the dressing was way to tangy. I would cut the vinegar in half. To cut the tang, I added a couple pinches of sugar. I also added about a quarter cup of Gorgonzola cheese and a quarter cup of dried cranberries. I used pecans instead of pine nuts because that is what I had on had. It was a good basic recipe, but I am not sure I would have like it as much without my changes.

Easy Decadent Truffles

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2007
This title of this recipe really says it all! I made these today for a Super Bowl party tomorrow. They taste and look awesome. I did cut back the confectioner's sugar to 2 cups like other reviews said. I used a package of Baker's Semi-Sweet Chocolate that I had on hand and added about half a cup more of chocolate chips. I think this recipe is pretty forgiving which is great for me because I don't tend to measure things! Your cream cheese definitely needs to be very soft. I started with it still pretty cold and it didn't mix up well. I stuck it in the microwave for about 15 seconds at half power and it was perfect. I pulled out about a third of the recipe and added about two tablespoons of peanut butter for variety. I think the peanut version is a little creamier and smoother. I, along with my three year old daughter, rolled the balls in a variety of toppings including finely crushed graham crackers, red decorating sugar, cocoa powder, hot chocolate mix, and chocolate sprinkles. We laid them on wax paper lined cookie sheets when we were done and ultimately put them in the fridge in a sealed container in layers on the wax paper. Rolling them was a little messy, but they weren't too bad to deal with. We ended up with about 70 in all, including the ones we nibbled along the way!
