Sausage Egg Squares

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2010
I made the full fat version of this to take to a brunch type function today and it was very well received. As stated, when it sits for a few minutes, it cuts into nice pieces. In San Antonio, we like spicy things, so I made it with the hot turkey Italian sausage, and it was just right for us! I liked this better than the breakfast casseroles that use bread cubes because you're not aware of the bread in the dish. It has a consistency similar to a quiche, but lighter, and with no crust. Thanks! I will make it again.

Turkey Wraps

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2011
These were very good. The combination of mustard with the cream cheese and chives was inspired! I used fresh spinach because I had it, and we thought the wraps were fabulous! As a matter of fact, I may have to make them again tomorrow! Served with corn and black bean salad. Yum! Thanks for the recipe, Rochelle!

Inca Red Quinoa Salad with Sweet Apple Chicken Sausage

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2012
Beet lovers take note: This is a refreshing salad that would make a lovely lunch. I made the recipe as stated, except for slicing the sausage before browning. I found myself adding more and more orange slices, because I found they added such a bright, sweet taste, and they complement the tasty sausage bites. It is an unusual color combination, and the salad dressing is light tasting, tangy and sweet. The orange slices stay pretty if they are left on the top.

Red Curry Flank Steak

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2012
Everyone loved the slightly spicy, complex flavor of this flank steak, and I loved that it didn't have to be marinated overnight! I also liked that there was no added oil in the marinade to add calories and cause flare ups. Six minutes on the first side was right on the money. I did slightly less when I turned it over, and ours was pink in the middle, just the way we like it. I placed the fresh basil on the steak as the recipe indicates, but the grill was so hot it dried out very quickly. We didn't get much of the basil flavor at all. Now that I have all the ingredients, I will make this again. Thanks, Chef!

Chili Rubbed Pork Tenderloin With Apricot Ginger Glaze

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2012
OK, if you haven't tried this, you need to. Seriously delicious. I roasted these little babies at 400 to an internal temp of 145, then tented. This glaze is amazing! I added more ginger and just enough heat to let you know there was some in there. I think this depends on the type of barbecue sauce you use. My sauce had no heat, so I added some. Definitely company worthy, and I can't wait to make it again!

Easy Grilled Zucchini

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2012
What a great idea for grilling! Slicing the zucchini this way keeps them from slipping between the grill racks. Very fast, very easy! I used Cavender's Greek Seasoning. Thanks for the idea!

Roast Beef Panini with Caramelized Shallots and Roquefort

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
Excellent combination of flavors. I used leftover "High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast", thinly sliced. Other than that, I made no changes to the recipe. Next time, I will try it with onions instead of shallots, and I will add a little more horseradish to the sauce. The sauce was tasty, but very mild. Thanks for the idea!

Bean Soup With Kale

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
Very good, satisfying soup! I added a pinch of red pepper flakes for a little extra zip! The tomatoes add a touch of sweetness, the kale was kind of crunchy, and the beans were soft and mellow. All the garlic gives an extra kick to the nutrition. I used the vegetable broth, and this was just right for a chilly Sunday evening. Very easy to put together. Thanks!

Tangy Potato, Green Bean and Bacon Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2012
Great combination of flavors. I would never have thought of using green beans in a potato salad. Loved the dressing, especially! Thanks for sharing this, Don!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2012
Just as promised, these are quick and easy, and it made a small amount. This recipe made 6 4-1/2" pancakes that were fluffy and delicious. I used about 1 Tbs. of oil instead of 1/4 c. melted shortening.

Eileen's Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2012
This was a very good meatloaf. I used panko and Italian seasoning, since I didn't have seasoned bread crumbs, and 2 lbs. of 90% lean ground beef. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. We did squeeze on some ketchup, once it was done, but I also think it would be yummy with brown gravy. If I make this with 2 lbs. of meat again, I will cook it at least 1 1/2 hrs. It has a very nice texture, and it slices well. Thanks for the recipe!

Fast Salmon with a Ginger Glaze

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2012
Made the glaze exactly as written, but I put the salmon in the oven. The spicy sweet flavor of the glaze is a fabulous accompaniment to the salmon. I did let the glaze reduce more than 2 minutes--more like 5 or 6. We loved this, and I will make again. Thanks for the idea!

Cinco De Mayo Salad

Reviewed: May 5, 2012
This colorful salad is a beautiful presentation, and it is a creative and tasty combination of ingredients. Served for a dinner party, I followed the recipe exactly except for one thing. I used 1 pound of salad greens, and this made 8 generous salads. I love it when folks ask for the recipe, in my book, that makes it a winner! Thanks, Saveur!

White Chip Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2012
Not your usual cookie! The hint of orange in these made them very special. They have a great texture, and were very well received! For me, though, they are a little too sweet. I followed the recipe exactly, except for zesting a whole orange, which yielded a tablespoon of zest. Cooking time is accurate, and I made 31 three-inch cookies.

Grilled Asian Asparagus

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2012
I really enjoyed this simple recipe for grilled asparagus, and I didn't change a thing. The hoisin sauce gives a slightly sweet flavor that balanced out any tendency toward bitterness. I will make this again!

Dark Chocolate Cherry Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2012
Ooooh, yummy! This fudge reminds me of cherry cordial candy, but without the mess and without the cordial. I followed the recipe exactly, going with a 4 minute boiling time. The fudge wanted to set up rather quickly, so I used a sheet of waxed paper to smooth out the top, once it was poured up. Dark chocolate chips is the right choice for this, because semi-sweet or milk chips would make it too sweet, IMO. In fact, if I were sure it wouldn't affect the candy, I would even cut the sugar back a bit. Great chocolate fix!

Easy Weeknight Bacon Mac 'n Cheese

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2012
Everyone enjoyed this, and I enjoyed the ease of preparation! I haven't made mac and cheese in a while, so DH and DS were quite happy, and they would be thrilled for me to make this again! The bacon and peppers really helped to make this dish tasty. The only change I made was to use whole wheat pasta.

Easy Apple Coleslaw

Reviewed: May 26, 2012
If you are looking for a different recipe for cole slaw, you have found it. This colorful salad is almost a cross between Waldorf salad and cole slaw. The dressing is sweet, so be sure to add enough lemon juice to balance to your tastes. I followed the recipe exactly, and my husband loved it. He has a sweet tooth, so it really appealed to him. For ease of combination, and for incorporating the onions, next time I will mix the dressing in the food processor and throw in the onions, so they will become part of the dressing. A pinch of salt would be nice, too.

Chicken and Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2012
This yummy soup tasted like it cooked all day. The 35 minute start to finish time makes this soup ideal for busy weeknights, but the flavor is nice enough for company. The smokiness of the bacon sent this over the top. I made two tweaks: I used chopped, pre-cooked chicken thighs, and I used a mixture of cheeses, since I was short on cheddar.

Jewel's Watermelon Margaritas

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2012
I think this will be amazing when the watermelons get ripe! I believe my melon was a little lacking, and I'm not going to make the submitter suffer for the sake of my watermelon! Once you have a really red, ripe, sweet melon, you may want to adjust the simple syrup to your liking, but for my under-ripe one, it needed the sugar. Novel idea, will make again!
