Portuguese Chourico Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2010
My husband is from Fall River, MA (high Portuguese population) and we've been searching for soups and stews for him to take to work. He is a very picky eater and he LOVES this. "A keeper" he said. I am not fond of canned veggies, so I used fresh green beans added at the 20 minute mark, then cooked for another 20 minutes and it came out wonderful. Next time we might try adding some cabbage. :)

Pumpkin Ginger Cupcakes

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2010
These were awesome! I made mine with wheat flour and we cooked them in mini bundt pans. No icing or anything, we ate them as they were for about a week. Dad took them with lunch, I ate them as dessert. Wonderful, moist and full of flavor!

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
Brought this to a pot luck dinner...EVERYONE loved it. I had to omit the tortellini...too expensive for me, but I used rigatoni pasta, which went over quite well. I also accidentally grabbed a package of hald spicy, half sweet sausage....that went over well too! Hubby demands we make this one again for lunches!

Sesame Green Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2006
My fiance is NOT a vegetable person. He really only likes string beans and sugar snap peas. I was looking for something new, interesting and quick as a side dish (trying to stay away from bad carbs). This is an EXCELLENT dish!! I made it for just two, omitted the salt (didn't even need it) and my fiance LOVED it. He asked for it again the next night! This is a keeper!

Petra's Strawberry Shortcake

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
Oh My Goodness! This recipe is FANTASTIC! I will never look for another Strawberry Shortcake recipe again. My husband requested strawberry shortcake for his birthday, and the silly goose thought I would BUY one! I went looking and found this recipe, and even though it was my very first time making one, it came out amazing. :) (I am a much better cook than a baker, so I was very pleased this turned out so well.) Mom and Dad loved it (Dad's exclamations upon seeing his piece involved the word "Shazaam!", LOL) and my hubby was bragging on me at work the next day, even showing a photo. I followed the recipe exactly, changing nothing, and making good use of our Kitchen Aid mixer. I used a foil pan because I didn't have the right size pan. The cake came out sweet and firm, but wonderfully textured and Mom said she would have been happy to eat it plain! Beginning to end, this recipe was easy and tasty, even for the rare baker like me. We used too many strawberries the first night, so next time I might use three pounds. ;) I just can't wait to make it with in season berries! Finally, it tasted every bit as awesome the second day. :D Thank you for sharing, Petra, and for helping make my hubby's birthday a success!

Mexican Chicken Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
This was OUTSTANDING! I made this as something I could pop into a pint soup container (from chinese takeout) and take with me to work. I wanted to hold the pot to my face and drink the whole thing, it was that good! I did as someone suggested and boiled two bone in chicken breasts and pulled the meat off. I ended up with a quart of very tasty broth. I also used fat free evaporated milk in place of the half and half to cut fat. We regularly have fat free half and half in the house, so I will try that next time. I also upped the cumin to around 2 tbsp after a taste test...I like strong flavors. I also added some cubed red skin potatoes because I like potatoes in my chowder. I liked the shredded cheese melted on top, but my husband preferred it mixed in. :) Excellent. I'm off to buy more ingredient to make it again for this week! YUM!!

Brooklyn Girl's Penne Arrabiata

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2013
This is pretty fantastic! I made the recipe as close to stated as possible, with the exception of using a lot less oil (I eyeballed it, as we make chicken cutlets quite often), used only 1 egg (with 1 Tbsp of milk, because that's what my mom taught me) and I used Italian Style bread crumbs because that is what we always have, which just streamlined prep. I added red wine to the sauce as my own spin (again eyeballed it...maybe 1/8 of a cup?)...and had to cut some canned whole plum tomatoes because I didn't have diced. I prefer plum tomatoes for my sauces anyway. :) 1 Tbsp of dried basil because I don't have fresh and that was that. Hubby pronounced it fantastic also, but gave up after 3/4 of his plate was gone because it was a little too spicy for him. Next time I'll use half a tsp. 1 tsp was plenty for me and I'm sure my mom and dad would have LOVED it. Will definitely make again and this time let mom and dad have some. ;)

Mom's Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2012
I am not a fan of peanut brittle. My 83 year old boss is a fiend for it and once threw out a whole box because it didn't taste right. So, for Christmas this year, I decided to make this recipe for him. First time EVER making peanut brittle OR anything candy-like. I bought a candy thermometer and cooked it to 300° like the instructions on the package said. I shelled roasted peanuts (1 cup shelled) because I couldn't find Spanish peanuts. Everything else I did as instructed (though perhaps used too much butter when buttering my cookie sheet...). The brittle was perfect! Even I liked it! The cooking went smoothly, except when the thermometer fell into the pan, and my boss was very happy with his gift! :)

Snickerdoodles I

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2012
My sister's favorite cookie is a snickerdoodle. She was coming to visit last Friday from NH, for Christmas. I made these because I knew she liked them. First time ever making snickerdoodles, and since I harbor a severe dislike for shortening, I wasn't convinced these could possibly taste good. Boy, was I ever WRONG! These were fan--tastic! Easy to make, easy to bake, and easy to pop in your mouth! We had a 3 year old and a 6 year old in the house also, and they announced that the "cinnamon ones" were the best! After two days, we had just two or three cookies left. I followed the recipe as written...and this one is absolutely a keeper!! Fat, cracked, and puffy out of the oven, they cooled and flattened out, but remained chewy inside while the edges were slightly crispy. I cooked them 10 minutes. These changed me... I'm a converted snickerdoodle lover for life!

Pumpkin Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2012
These were pretty enjoyable. My only issue was that splitting the recipe into two equal batches was made difficult by my not having two same size bowls. I guessed, and didn't allow for the moistness of the pumpkin, so that batch was too moist, but the chocolate was very good. I also had to use a 9x9 pan, which probably didn't help matters. I'll try again with the proper pan and bowls that match. :)

Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
Very good! Very close to my mom's version (she's on vacation, so I had to find a different recipe). Dad and my hubby really liked it. I didn't bake mine, I steamed them. I also had to use a can of crushed tomatoes because that was all I had. :) We always have fresh garlic and onions on hand, so I used those instead of dried.

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2011
Quick and easy! My husband LOVED this. Definitely going in the regular rotation! I used fresh lemon juice since I didn't have lime, but it was great and I will try the lime next time.
