Blackberry Cobbler II

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2006
I am lucky enough to live in the Mountains where Blackberries grow in abundance. I loved the topping on this recipe and did mine with half fresh blackberries and half fresh peaches. I love that combination. I took suggestions on cutting the sugar in half...which was OK..but more would have been fine as well. However, I and my son both agree, that baking it in the iron skillet ( although very homey ) gave the entire dessert a metallic taste. I would certainly do this again,,,,using a glass baking dish to avoid the metal after-taste. Make it "home-spun" by decorating your table with wildflowers instead! A very nice dessert with afew modifications, and ice cream is a MUST.

Mint Tea Punch

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2006
I served this with Thai marinated grilled shrimp ( from this website which was GREAT!). the tea was Cool and refreshing...however, I felt the mint overpowered the tea/citrus flavors. Maybe I just used too much mint or the wrong kind ( I used Peppermint from my herb bed) I might try it again with alittle less mint. I switched to white wine after the first glass!

Thai Spiced Barbecue Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2006
Wonderful!!!! 5 stars and beyond! Tryed this paired with marinated grilled Chicken Breasts. Very nice together. I marinated the shrimp for atleast aday in a zip-loc bag. I wouldn't change a thing with the recipe! My guests LOVED it and the few that were leftover the next day, were delic cold as well. Zippy and a nice change from the ordinary.

Pasta Shells with Portobello Mushrooms and Asparagus in Boursin Sauce

Reviewed: May 6, 2006
Overall this recipe had very nice flavor. I agree with some of the other comments that the sauce was too thin. I was lucky enough to have found fresh wild Morel Mushroom where I live, so I added those along with Cremini Mushrooms ( baby Portobello's) to the dish. Also cut asparagus into smaller pieces. I made my own Boursin cheese ( MUCH CHEAPER and just as good) which consisted of 8 oz. cream cheese, 8 oz. cottage cheese, 2 Tbsp. butter, 1/2 tsp. Dillweed,Garlic Powder,onion powder, oregano,thyme and 1/4 tsp. salt and black pepper. I added afew fresh herbs form my garden and alittle fresh garlic for kick. Process in food processor til light and the consistancy of Ricotta. refrig. 8 hrs. for the flavors to blend. This Boursin recipe makes more than enough to try this recipe with plenty leftover. Worth trying again with afew minor adjustments.

Baked Pork Chops II

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2006
Very good chop recipe. Overall my family liked it alot. Meat was moist and had a good flavor. I played with the ingredients abit. Used only half of the brown sugar ( actually used a dark Molasses sugar ) added some worchestshire sauce to the tomato sauce, topping the chops with one sliced onion and afew minced garlic cloves to kick-up the flavor of the sauce some. Was very good served with mashed potatoes,green beans and fresh fruit. I will make this again.

Corned Beef and Cabbage II

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2006
I never would have tryed this recipe if it where not for all the rave reviews. One word...YUMMMMMMM! Very tender,moist and easy. I doubled the liquid and used beef broth rather than water. Didn't have enough pickling spice in the house, so I came up with my own concoction of Mustard Seed,Caraway Seed, Whole Coriander and Allspice Seeds, Hot pepper flakes, tumeric, a crumbled bayleaf and Afew Black Peppercorns. My entire family voted this tops and I will never boil Corned Beef again.

Creamy Potato Pork Chop Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2006
My Hubby and Son liked this better than I did. All commented that Cheddar cheese was too overpowering. I spent alot of time reviewing comments in order to "tweek" recipe. End result....SO-so. Not sure I would make it again
