Mexican Shrimp Cocktail

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2006
Excellent Party appetizer. I wouldn't change a thing. I served this to my husband and some guests who were completely skeptical. They all came back begging for seconds. Looks great served in large Margarita glasses with fresh shrimp (not the marinated ones) hanging off the rim.

Wisconsin Native's Beer Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
I make a lot of soups, but this one was the best yet! A wonderful blend of Wisconsin favorites. Didn't have dry mustard, so used the mustard you put on hotdogs and it turned out delicious. Husband raved and craved!

Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2006
For a lighter version of this soup, I copied everything off this recipe except only added 1 Tablespoon of the Heavy Whipping Cream. Really I could have gone without the whipping cream all together. I modified this soup so it would be lighter in both fat and calories. I thought that the flavor and smooth texture was not compromised at all by reducing the whipping cream amount. My husband and I found this almost as good as the gourmet pumpkin soup that we at at Sandals in St.Lucia.

Candied Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
Ohhh my goodness! This was terrific. I made this once and found the butter and sugar were a little much. The second time I made it I followed the advice of another helpful reviewer and used only 1 stick of butter (1/2 cup) and 3/4 cups of brown sugar and it was awesome. Everyone raved and requested I make it for the next get together. Yummmm! Thank you for posting this recipe!

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2006
This was Amazing! I served this at a special dinner party and everyone was amazed at the unique idea of adding feta and artichokes to Lasagna. I also substiuted the feta for a Kraft Mediteranean (feta/mozzerela) blend and would do it again in a heart beat.

Grill Dough

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2006
Outstanding recipe, the pizza was eaten up in a flash. I actually doubled the recipe and grilled all 4 dough/crusts on one day. We ended up adding the toppings to 2 crusts and then saving the extra 2 crusts for the next day. Again, all we had to do was add the toppings the second day, it refrigerated nicely. We also doubled the sugar for flavor. My husban is still raving about this!

Pesto Tuna Salad with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2006
Terrific! I actaully made this with dry packed sun-dried tomatoes and just let them marinade over night. This worked out well. I also served it over brown rice which was also tastey. I will definetely make this again.

Patti's Mussels a la Mariniere

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2007
Get a good dipping bread b/c the flavor of the sauce is terrific. Still not sure about debearding a mussel, so be sure to ask your grocer about that. Tasted good anyways.

Chipotle Honey Roasted Peanuts

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2012
I made this for snacking at a party and everyone raved and proceeded to polish it off. So I decided to make it again, this time as a little take-home-treat for birthday party guests. I did this as a double batch two times and it worked out really well. The peanuts tasted excellent and a lot more unique than just canned peanuts. This recipe is worth it, and VERY easy!

Fresh Rhubarb Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2012
Made this for my husband and in-laws for dessert and this was a huge hit. It pairs nicely with vanilla bean ice-cream and/or whipped cream. Thanks for posting such a hit!

Tom Ka Gai (Coconut Chicken Soup)

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2006
My husband really like this but I didn't think it was nearly as good as the one we had at the restaurant. Reduce the amount of fish sauce by 1/2. Also, add more red pepper to spice it up. The tumeric does indeed turn the soup a neon yellow, but it also goes with the territory.

Mushroom and Leek Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2006
I thought that this soup was pretty good, although quite a bit bland. I spiced this up by adding pinto beans and I also added buttermilk ranch seasoning (not the actual dressing) and my husband loved it. Goes great with Baby Bella Mushrooms.

Spicy Orange Beef

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2006
This recipe was OK, but it was no where near as good as P.F.Changs. The soy sauce needs to be reduced a lot b/c the original recipe was too salty and the red pepper flakes could be doubled.

Chicken Curry I

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2006
This was a nice change of pace. However, the chicken came out a bit dry and the flavor overall needed something to give it more pop. We ended up adding sourcream to change it up and that helped a lot.
