Pear and Blue Cheese Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
Excellent!!! I used candied pecans (because I cant find candied walnuts anymore at my store) and they were tasty. I also used Gorgonzola instead of Blue Cheese--same thing essentially, but Gorgonzola has a creamier, milder taste. Dont skip the walnut oil; it adds so much to this recipe. My husband LOVED it! A keeper!

Beer Brats

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
These are excellent! I used a bottle of Newcastle Brown Ale and a can of Bud Light (it's all I had on hand) and it turned out fantastic. I served these with sauerkraut and the carmelized onions and it was sooooo tasty. They grill up so beautifully and could easily be made ahead in the beer and then grilled later. Perfect for Super Bowl parties, casual get-togethers, Oktoberfests, etc. A keeper! Update: my husband sliced the left over brats and put them on a frozen pizza--Hello? Very tasty!

Easy Pie Crust

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
Very good! I made this in a pinch for a quiche when I realized I didnt have any store-bought pie crusts in the freezer. It was so simple to make and turned out fantastic! I baked it without any filling for about 10 minutes prior to putting the quiche filling in. It set up beautifully and was so tender and flaky. A keeper!

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2011
I make this on a semi-regular basis, but with a few alterations that make a very tasty French Dip. I use 1 cup soy sauce, 1 can of Campbells Beef Consumme' soup, 1 packet of Lipton Onion Soup mix and 6 cups of water. I also add 5 garlic cloves, 1 bay leaf and a sprig of fresh rosemary. So yummy!

Margarita Cole Slaw

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2011
The more fresh lime and orange juice, the better. I use usually 3-4 limes and the juice of one whole orange. Excellent!

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
Best. Carrot Cake. Ever. I made this exactly as written except for the coconut (didnt have any) and it was fantastic! So moist and flavorful. My husband loved it. I made it in two 9-inch round pans and baked them for about 50 minutes. I also used the Cream Cheese Frosting II recipe on this site and it was the perfect pairing. I cant imagine trying to ever improve on this recipe--it is perfect! Totally a keeper!

Cinnamon Rolls III

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
I made these for Easter brunch and they were very good! I halved the recipe since it is just the two of us and it still made about 14 rolls. I used my bread machine for the dough, assembled them the day before, refridgerated them overnight and took them out a few hours before baking; they turned out beautifully. The dough is so tender and fluffy. I skipped the cream cheese frosting part and instead served butter for the hot rolls. Yummy! A keeper!

Buffalo Chicken Burgers with Blue Cheese Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2011
Soooooo good! I added about 1/8 cup of bread crumbs to help keep them together and about a 1/4 lb. of ground turkey to make up for the lesser amount of chicken (only had 1 lb.) and it was very tasty. My husband and I loved it. The blue cheese mixture with the celery on top is so good. I am so glad I found this recipe because now I plan on making them more often. A keeper!

Alla Checca

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
This is excellent! I added a little bit of minced shallot to this (because I wanted to use one up) and it was yummy! So simple and fresh. My husband loved it. A keeper!

Italian Breaded Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
These were great! My husband loves Italian Pork Chops from a local italian restaurant here in Vegas and these were even better. Next time I am going to dip them in flour first, since that helps keep the breading from falling off, which it did just a tiny bit. These were moist and very flavorful. I served them with the Alla Checca recipe on this site and it was a wonderful meal. A keeper!

Lemony Garlic Shrimp with Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
I've been making a version of this for years. I got it from Ina Garten (Barefoot Contessa). I use 1/2 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice and a 'glug' of white wine, plus Italian parsley. Make sure you add the garlic only after you add the lemon juice/wine. Otherwise if you saute it with the shrimp, it will burn and there is nothing worse than burned garlic. For the pasta, I have made it with angel hair, regular spaghetti, and linguine and prefer linguine over all the others. It stays separated and doesnt turn into a big pasta glob. I also add several thin slices of lemon and fresh grated parmesan for presentation. It is absolutely one of my favorite dishes to make and only takes a few minutes to cook. It is excellent! Note: dont skip the step of soaking your shrimp in the salt water. It cleans them really well resulting in very fresh tasting shrimp.

Quick and Easy Green Chile Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2011
This is very good. My husband loves tortilla casserole, but I made a few changes that I may skip next time. I used 4 chicken breasts for just the two of us and it was 2 too many. It was yummy, but he thought it tasted too much like regular enchiladas. Next time I am going to cut back on the chicken a bit and add more torillas. All in all it was fantastic!

Zucchini e Pomodori Gratinati (Zucchini and Tomato Gratin)

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
This is fantastic! So easy to put together and so fresh tasting. I have a smaller casserole pan than a 9x13, so I used 3 ripe-on-the-vine tomatoes, 3 small zucchini and 8oz of mozzarella. I layered zucchini on the bottom, followed by the cheese, and then the tomatoes topped with dried basil and parmesan. I added the garlic only in the final minute of sauteeing the zucchini so it wouldnt burn. One tip: if you remove the seeds from the tomatoes, it will eliminate the extra juice. This is so, so good and totally a keeper. Very yummy!

Lemon Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
I used a lemon cake mix and made it according to the directions on the box except I added a box of instant lemon pudding mix and the juice one lemon. Then I used lemon pudding instead of vanilla with the Cool Whip for the topping. Excellent! My husband loves lemon desserts and thought this was very good. Not too sweet. Very fresh and light. Yummy!

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2011
This was amazing! I baked 4 chicken breasts w/ just a smidge of salt and pepper instead of canned chicken (which is yucky!) and chopped them up. I also used Blue Cheese dressing instead of ranch and used 4oz. of crumbled blue cheese instead of cheddar. I cooked it in a crockpot for a while and then transferred it to a warming dish for serving. It was excellent! My husband loved it. I am going to make it again on Super Bowl Sunday. A keeper.

Slow Cooker Lentil and Ham Soup

This was very good! I sauteed two slices of bacon with the ham and also added a can of diced tomatoes and skipped the water. It turned out great. Excellent!

Dip For The Stars

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
Excellent! I am eating it as I write (and my husband is wrapping presents in the garage!) I would do three things differently next time. 1) Pulverize the sun-dried tomotoes in the food processor into smaller pieces. 2) Drain and mop up as much oil from both the pesto and sun-dried tomatoes as possible. 3) Split it in two. You could easily make this is two smaller molds and freeze one for later. It is very good!
