Beef and Barley Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2003
This was a tasty and filling. I changed it by using the beef cubes for stew instead of dealing with the bones. That one change saved me a lot of time.

Broiled Scallops

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2003
These were very tasty and easy to make. I'd definitely recommend them to anyone who likes scallops but has been scared to cook them.

Lime Chicken Picante

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2003
This was so good it's now in my permanent collection! It was incredibly easy to make (1 lime equals one tablespoon of lime juice) and enjoyed by everyone at the dinner party. I made it with dark meat and white meat instead of all breasts. Also, there wasn't really enough marinade remaining to make the glaze. I served it with the yogurt and crushed pineapple -- my guests said that the pineapple gave it just the right amount of tartness. A real winner!

Navy Bean Soup II

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2003
This was a good recipe but nothing like the navy bean soup of my memories. I remember them as creamy and without tomatoes. Nonetheless, it was good once I changed my expectations.

Easy Mushroom Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2003
This was super-easy to make. Since our household love mushrooms I doubled the amount and it received rave reviews. My only complaint is that it's pretty fatty, so try to use good-for-you broth/boullion and cut the butter in half. Everyone asks for it now!

Creamy Bacon Cheddar Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2003
This was okay as a salad dressing but awesome as a dip for buffalo wings! Be warned, though, that it makes LOTS of salad dressing. I will definitely cut the recipe in half when I make it again.

Cream of Fresh Asparagus Soup II

Reviewed: May 5, 2003
This was so tasty we ran out and bought asparagus so we could make more! Remember that you can use the big asparagus that you wouldn't use otherwise because it's going to be pureed. Other than doubling the recipe the only thing I would change is that I would save the asparagus heads after sauteeing and use them as garnish instead of pureeing them. Excellent recipe!

Spinach Cheese Pie

Reviewed: May 5, 2003
This was good, but turned out pretty runny for me and didn't hold together. I'll make it again with shredded mozzarella and cook it longer (to get a crispy crust). The taste was excellent, though.

Cheesy Brat Stew for the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2003
This recipe was only average. It wasn't good enough to become a permanent part of our recipe box, but we finished it. It just needs some sort of kick.

Irish Brown Soda Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2004
This bread is incredibly dense. The crust was so hard I thought it was a goner, but when I opened it up and spread butter on it it was yummy. Not what I was looking for, but still pretty darn good. My partner ate a whole loaf before dinner.

Mushroom and Leek Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2004
Very good, quick soup. It turned out very salty for me, but that's probably because I ended up using boillon cubes instead of condensed broth (next time I'm going to try it with chicken broth). I also used rice instead of pasta and it turned out great. I did the recommended amount of white button mushrooms, but topped it off with some reconstituted dried porcini mushrooms (~2oz) I had laying around. They gave it a nice extra little flavor.

Strawberry Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2004
This was very yummy! It freezes well, too. I used the bundt pan, increased the strawberries by at least half, and used about half whole wheat flour.

Zesty Marinated Asparagus

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2004
It was allright. Nothing you can't do with packaged Italian dressing. Also, keep in mind that two pounds of asparagus is a LOT.

Blueberry Cornmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2004
These are really tasty! The cornmeal gives it a nice change from the too-sweet versions.

Navy Bean Soup I

Reviewed: May 27, 2006
The only bean soup we make anymore. Added a big ham bone (with some meat still on it) from an earlier meal. Yum!

Apple Sausage Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
We use this syrup recipe ALL the time. I double or triple it and put some in the freezer for those times I can't get fresh apple cider. Yummy on any pancake! I don't have pumpkin pie spice (and have always found they have too much cinnamon for us) so I use a combination of nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, allspice, and ginger.

Lemon Snow Filling

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
Really is very sweet. Next time I'll reduce the sugar. Also, it makes about 4 cups of filling - way more than we need for crepes. We think it'll be excellent for frosting cakes or as the filling for cookie sandwiches.

Fabulous Football Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
Really yummy. We did blend the tomatoes and peppers to get it past the kids, and served it with Fritos. Very popular!

Chicken and Mushroom Chowder

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2010
This was pretty good. I used barley instead of rice and added some green beans I had laying around. It didn't make us stand up and cheer but it was good and filling.

Shaved Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Almonds

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
I was a doubter but am now a convert! All the adults liked it, but the kids (5yo and 2yo) stayed skeptical. It was a new food and they don't like change. I'll server it nine more times and they'll be converts also.
