Tart Lemon Triangles

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2004
These were just OK. I used egg beaters to reduce the cholesterol, and the filling tasted just so-so. The crust was good though, although 3/8 c butter is an odd measurement, isn't it? (it's 6 Tbls for anyone that doesn't want to have to translate cups to tablespoons :-)

Marinated Potato-and-Artichoke Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2004
I made this for a picnic and it was awful. I assembled it yesterday and put it in the fridge thinking that the flavors would blend overnight. But today, it tasted absolutely bland and boring. I wouldn't make this again.

Hummus Club Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2004
These were so good! I used wheat dinner rolls from the bakery since these were for a Father's Day picnic. They made the perfect mini sandwich! I also used Athenos roasted red pepper hummus instead of making it from scratch, just b/c I had never made hummus before and I was a little nervous about it. I'm giving 4 stars only b/c I didn't make the hummus part, so I don't know if it was good or not. This is a healthy and easy summer lunch and I'll definitely make it again.

Flourless Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2004
This is super rich, but a nice once a year kind of treat! Made it for my friend's Seder and they all really liked it. It's kind of the consistency of chocolate mousse, but more dense. Although they thought it tasted like brownie batter. I used semi-sweet chocolate by mistake, but it tasted good anyways. Also used a 10" spring-form pan which helped in getting this tricky cake out of the pan!

Pork Chops and Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2004
Tasty recipe! I like cooking the potatos and chops together, although I'm sure part of the reason the potatoes taste so good is that all the pork fat melted into them while baking!! Good reason to try and rend off some of the fat when you brown the chops. Also, I used the slicing side of my box grater to thinly slice the potatoes and it worked GREAT! It was super fast too. Also, the chops were dry when done cooking, so the cooking time could probably use some tweaking. I'll make this again, with some adjustments.

Maple Glazed Ribs

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2004
This was a very tasty recipe. It's a nice change from the sticky, heavy BBQ sauce that you usually get on ribs. The glaze was nice, light and sweet. Will definitely make again!

Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2004
Boy, what a mistake! I was missing one key ingredient for my usual meatloaf, so I thought I'd try this one. I read about others having mushy meatloaf results, so I added an extra 1/2 cup of oatmeal, but it was still mushy. It fell appart when we tried to cut it and the soft consistency was not appealing. Maybe the fact that I used ground chuck contributed to the problem? Anyways, I'm going back to my tried and true "Ann's Sister's Meatloaf" also on this website. It's wonderful.

Asparagus with Parmesan Crust

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2004
Super easy and a delicious side dish. We loved everything about it - the balsamic vinegar and parmesan where perfect additions; don't use the parmesan in a can - it's important to use the real stuff! Thanks for the great recipe!

Champagne Shrimp and Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2004
YUM! This was a delicious Valentine's Day dinner. The only thing I would change is tossing the pasta with the remaining 1/4 c of cream; I didn't think that did anything for it. Also, I used bow tie pasta and it worked great. If you use a 750 ml bottle of champagne you will have enough left over for 2 glasses with dinner and maybe a Mimosa the next morning :-)

Beef Pot Pie III

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2004
Luckily I used the meat from a left over roast (which was already well seasoned) for this pot pie because otherwise I think it would have been really bland. Also, I cooked the veggies in the beef broth and then thickened it as directed, but it got very thick, very fast and really was hardly any gravy for the pot pie, just a small amout of gluey sauce, so the pot pie ended up rather dry.

Melting Moments I

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2004
This is a fragile cookie, but the cookie itself is tasteless. The indentation baked out, so I just tried to spread some of the cream cheese frosting on top. It is the only thing that may have saved the cookies, but I don't think I will make them again.

Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2004
WOW! Made these for New Years Eve and EVERYONE loved them! The garlic flavor comes thru really nicely and the cayenne pepper gives it just a little kick, which was great. I also sprinkled on some bread crumbs to make them feel "finished". Will definitely make this one again.

Green Bean Casserole I

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2004
Can't go wrong with this holiday standard! I don't add salt but 1 tsp of soy sauce which gives it a nice, subtle flavor. Also, skim milk works great too - can't tell the difference!

Double Chocolate Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2003
They should call these triple chocolate biscotti since there are two kinds of chips and the cocoa! The dough was very sticky, so I refrigerated it for about an hour and then floured my hands in order to press the dough into logs. My husband can't tolerate white chocolate so I substituted 4 oz of sliced almonds which went very nicely with the chocolate flavor. He LOVED them, but I thought they were just OK, so I'm giving these 4 stars.

Chicken, Garlic, and Sundried Tomato Pasta

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2003
An easy and tasty recipe, but it seems like it needs something else - maybe some mushrooms next time.

Caroling Wine

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2003
This is pretty good - we threw in some brandy too, and reduced the sugar - it was a little sweet. Also, one bottle of wine isn't 4 cups! 750 ml = 3 1/2 c. Not a big deal unless you are tripling the recipe ;-)

Beer Butt Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2003
Fun recipe and it is very moist - so moist I wasn't sure it was cooked all the way, but it was! I made sure to baste it a few times, but that's all. I baked it in the oven at 350 for 1 1/2 hours. Don't forget to line your pan w/ foil for easier clean up!

Spicy Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2003
This salad was FANTASTIC! I could have eaten the whole thing myself it was that good and guilt-free too. I did reduce the sugar to 1/3 c which seemed to be just right for sweetness. Also, I think my mustard and garlic powders may have been kind of old, since I didn't really notice the mustard flavor and I ended up adding an extra 1/2 tspn of the garlic powder. We will absolutely be making this one again!

Baked Potato Soup II

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2003
YUM! This was a GREAT soup, but I can't give it 5 stars because it did need some help (after which it was great!) but as others have said the basic soup is a good base to build on. I roasted 1 entire head of garlic (about 10 cloves or so) and added it to the milk/roux combo along with one of the baked potatoes. I blended it with my immersion blender until creamy then added the rest of the potatoes. A little shredded cheddar on top and it was sooo good. We didn't even miss the sour cream (skipped it since the soup was already very thick) and also reduced the butter to 1/4 c instead of 1/3 c. I also ended up having to add another cup of milk since it was way too thick with just the 4 cups. Without the sour cream and reduced amount of butter this is actually a relatively healthy recipe! Definitely a keeper.
