Grilled Beef Tenderloin with Herb-Garlic-Pepper Coating

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2014
I grilled two whole filets for Easter dinner using this recipe. I marinated them with the mixture overnight. They were awesome! The guests couldn't get enough, and, of all the meat offerings, these were the first to go! I didn't do the tying with twine step. I just kept the small tips toward the parts of my grill I know are cool spots. It cooked perfectly! Thanks for the great recipe!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2013
Turned out perfectly! Don't mess with this recipe! Perfect as is! I used Granny Smith apples and left the peel on. Delightful awesomeness!

Ginger and Lime Salmon

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2013
Very tasty. I did not slice the ginger, but grated it very finely over the top of the fish. All the flavors work well together. Will definitely use this again!

Easy Cream Cheese Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2013
Easy and quick. I don't think a pie pan works very well for this, so I make it in an 8x8. I melt 3 TBSP of butter in my 8x8 and then add 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs and 3 TBSP of sugar for the crust. Turns out perfectly every time and lets those OCD people get over not having perfect pie slices. It is definitely more like a 9x13 layered dessert than a pie, but--oh boy!--is it delicious!

Potato and Ham Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
After experimenting, I use 1/2 tsp dried tarragon, 4 tsp chicken base in the water, and no cream of celery soup. Instead I melt 1/4 cup of butter and add 1/2 cup flour. Stir over low heat for a few minutes then add to soup with one can of evaporated milk. Skip the cream. Also, your veggies will taste better if you sweat them out in a tbsp of butter before you add the broth. Only about 5-7 minutes on med low heat.

Javi's Really Real Mexican Ceviche

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
ABSOLUTELY DELISH!!! Because of what I had read on the Food Network site, I did dunk my shrimp in boiling water for just a second and then immediately put them in ice water. I also added a diced avocado just before serving so that it wouldn't get too mushed up. Everything else I did be the recipe and it was the hit of the party. I have already been asked to bring this to our July 4th Bash---a double batch! Thanks for the great recipe!

Disappearing Marshmallow Brownies II

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
These are the bomb! I love the combination of flavors. I don't usually have marshmallows on hand, but always have marshmallow creme. I just use a 7oz tub and swirl it into the brownie batter when i add the chocolate chips. It works perfectly every time. I will say that these have to cook longer than 15-20 minutes even in my convection oven. Delicious!

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
I have made this a couple of times and have been disappointed in the results. The texture once baked is very slimy in the middle. It tastes like a glorified bean burrito from Taco Bell. The ground beef is just lost in all the goop. Not my cup of tea and my family defintely did not care for it.

Spiced Bacon Twists

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2009
After cooking this for several years, I have some advice to make it quicker and less messy: 1) Don't worry about twisting the bacon. Cut your packs of bacon in half, shake them in a bag of the brown sugar mixture, and then lay them very tightly packed onto an aluminum foil covered cookie sheet that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. They taste so delicious no one cares if they are twisted or not! 2) Immediately after removing from the oven, put each piece on cookie cooling racks that have been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Don't let them touch! I also put wax paper beneath the racks because that praline mess will drip. Let them cool and set. 3) Just add 1 tsp. of allspice in place of the cinnamon and nutmeg. The clove adds something extra, just like when you stud ham with whole cloves. 4) Use the cheapest bacon you can find and definitely not thick cut. Everyone in my community loves this recipe and it has become the dish that is asked for the most when I attend parties. A friend of mine's son had some serious medical problems lately and he said that Candied Bacon would make him feel better! This bacon cures everything!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2008
By far the best pumpkin bread this side of the pumpkin patch! I did what a few other cooks did. I replaced the 1 cup of oil with 1/2 cup melted butter, 1/4 cup oil, and 1/3 cup applesauce. The water was reduced to 1/2 cup and I used 1 cup brown sugar and 2 cups white sugar. I increased the ginger and cloves to 3/4 tsp each. There was enough batter for two loaves in 9 x 5 loaf pans. I had to cook it quite a bit longer than the directions said--even with a convection oven, but the thickness was perfect. Just keep checking it! This bread's crowning glory is the melted butter/cinnamon/sugar glaze. And there is absolutely no need to pierce holes into the bread!!!! When it came out of the oven, I drizzled and brushed the butter sauce over the top. It soaked in beautifully while the bread cooled about 20 minutes. I then let it finish cooling on racks. Top notch recipe that will be in my permanent file!

Tomato and Avocado Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
This was great with a few changes. I added a thinly sliced onion. I did not have dijon mustard, so I added 1/2 tsp of ground mustard and 2 TBSP of white wine. I let it sit for about 30 minutes. It is definitely a keeper!

Adrienne's Tom Ka Gai

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2006
Our local Thai restaurant serves this soup, and I absolutely love it. I used this recipe as a base because my grocery did not have lemon grass, so I substituted 1/2 juiced lemon and sliced shallots. I also could not find fish sauce, but oyster sauce worked just as well. I also added 1/2 tsp curry and 1/4 tsp ground red pepper (we like it spicy!). This is undoubtedly a better soup than I have been paying $5.75 for! Thanks for the great recipe!
