Peppered Shrimp Alfredo

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2008
This was really good! I did make a few minor adjustments. The family demanded that I not add the cayenne pepper. I had medium shells instead of penne so I used them. The portobellos I sliced into medium thick strips and I had a jar of roasted red bell peppers that I used instead of fresh. Everyone loved this dish! One thing to note, I have yet to find alfredo sauce that isn't salty so don't add any salt until you've tasted it just before it's ready to plate. Mine didn't need any because the salt in the alfredo sauce was enough. This recipe is a keeper! Thanks to the original poster.

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
Outstanding! I made this exactly as the recipe stated. The only things that I'd like to mention is that this made 15 large pancakes and I made them on a round electric griddle set at 375 degrees. I also think it's important to let the milk, buttermilk, egg mixture come close to room temperature befor mixing with the dry ingredients. I think this enhances the rise in the pancakes. My entire family gave this 5 stars and I thank the original poster!

Indian Tandoori Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2008
This was yummy! I did make a few slight changes based on prior reviews. I used a 2 lb. whole chicken that I broke down into pieces. The onion I grated. Same with the ginger. In place of the garam masala I used 2 tsp. of Tandoori Seasoning from Penzeys. I omitted the cayenne pepper, which I won't do the next time. It needs the spice and puch. I think 1/2 tsp. would be fine for our tastes. I also didn't use the food coloring or the cilantro. I grilled this on the BBQ (It was 35 degrees outside.) and it came out fantastic!!!! Served with saffron rice and fresh steamed asparagus. Nothing was left at the end of the meal. Compliments to the original poster, as this is definately a keeper!

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake II

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2008
I made this recipe exactly as posted. I used a 9 inch round baking pan. Overall, a good recipe. The only thing that was missing was a moister cake. I didn't have any pineapple juice to add to the batter in place of some of the milk but I will make sure I have some on hand next time. The family really liked it and I will be making it again very soon.

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2008
Great recipe, very tasty! I made this pretty much by the original recipe, but with the following changes; Tomatoes aren't good this time of year so I used 2 cans of organic diced tomatoes. The shopper in our family brought back frozen meat tortellini instead of fresh, so we used those and they turned out great. The only other thing I did was after removing the casings from the sweet Italian sausage I cut them into bite size pieces and browned them in a saute pan. I then took them out piece by piece and put them into a paper towel lined bowl to absorb the excess fat. This worked really well and I didn't need to skim any fat off the soup because there wasn't any! I served this with sourdough rolls and the crowd went wild! Great recipe, and I thank the original poster.

Shrimply Delicious Shrimp Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
This was YUMMY! I used fresh shrimp and made sure to chop them up and dry them prior to putting them in the bowl. I also used 3 hard boiled eggs since we like those and used just a few organic green onions instead of the regular onions. We were out of regular mayo so I used Miracle Whip. After tasting it, I also thought it needed a bit of a kick. So I mixed in about 1/2 tsp. of half sharp paprika from Penzeys. That did the trick! Served on croissants. Everyone loved it and we will be making this every time shrimp goes on sale.

Spinach and Orzo Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2007
My entire family loved this! I read some of the previous reviews and used about 2/3 of a one pound box of orzo. I also had a small can of sliced black olives in the pantry so I added them. I think that really helped. As far as extra dressing is concerned, if this sits a few days I can see where it would be needed. But since I didn't use all of the orzo this came out perfect. Again, definately a keeper. This would be great at a pot luck or summer BBQ.

Potato Leek Soup III

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
Wow! Very tasty recipe. I used 1 cup 2% milk and 1 cup heavy cream. Next time I'll just use the heavy cream. It really does need it in my opinion. I only had two small leeks so I'll make sure I get bigger ones or use 3 of the small ones next time. Make sure to tast as you season so you don't use too much salt. I was surprised how much fresh ground white pepper this needs. The family loved it and it's a keeper for sure!

Easy Broccoli Quiche

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2007
This is a wonderful base recipe! I had a few spears of fresh asparagus around so I diced them and plut them in with a bit of cooked diced bacon. Just make sure that when you add extra ingredients to adjust the liquid amount to compensate. This is certainly a keeper.

Honey Glazed Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
I followed the advice of previous posters and doubled the marinade. I also made the following minor adjustments; 1 T. sesame oil and the rest olive oil, I added 1 tsp. fresh minced garlic and will add more next time, I will also add fresh grated ginger next time. The type and tempurature of your oven is important. I always use an instant read thermometer. I have an old electric oven and it took quite a while to get my desired internal temperature of 160 degrees before I removed and then tented the loins with foil. I served it over organic jasmine rice and it was fantastic! I will be making this again, and soon. Thanks go to the original contributor.

This was awesome! I made only slight changes such as; I used 1 green bell pepper and 1 red bell pepper, the onions I cut in half and then just sliced, I also added a can of baby corn. I marinated the meat in a few tablespoons of the stir-fry sauce prior to putting it into the wok. I served it over organic Jasmine rice. This was a quick and easy recipe that the entire family loved!

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
I used unsalted butter instead of margarine and increased the sugar content by adding Splenda to the recipe. Mine turned out nice and fluffy.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2006
To keep this moist I cut back the cooking time to 55 minutes. I also added about a cup of Craisins (dried cranberries). It didn't survive 24 hours in my house. Everyone loved it.

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2006
Absolutely fantastic! I used this on Halibut and Mahi Mahi and the crowd went wild. 60-90 minutes to marinate in an 8 x 8 glass pan, then onto the grill. This is definately a keeper.

Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2002
I used a 1.8 lb. loin and I cut down the cooking time to 1:15. I used slightly less rosemary, more gahlic and omitted the wine for health reasons. I happened to have a nice bottle of garlic infused extra virgin olive oil that I used also. Put it in a plastic bag and marinate for a few hours. This is a wonderful recipe! I thank the original poster.
