Easiest Filet Marsala

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2013
This is a WONDERFUL recipe. If you cook the meat right, the sauce sends it over the top. I made it as written and everyone thought it was great. The next time I added a small clove of garlic and wow- it was amazing. The hubs asks me to make this all the time!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2013
I was never a fan of brussels sprouts till these. I take sure to v-cut into the stem, removing the extra. These things are fabulous and my kids are constantly bugging me to make them. These are now a monthly purchase so I can make them at least once a month!

Balsamic Baked Tilapia

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2013
This is wonderful! I had to change only a slight few things as I didn;t have everything on hand. I used zucchini instead of pepper and gorgonzola (Italian Blue Cheese). I also 'baked' it in our bbq on bricks. We all thought it was outstanding and I WILL DEFINITELY be using this recipe over and over again!

Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken Breasts with Herbed Goat Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2013
This recipe is EXCELLENT AS WRITTEN and is well worth the small amount of time it takes to make it! I also pair it with a 50/50 lettuce blend salad containing feta and cherub tomatoes dressed with EEOO, garlic, fresh cracked pepper and balsamic vinaigrette...doesn't get any better!

Classic Infused Creme Brulee

Reviewed: May 10, 2013
My husband makes creme brulee almost exactly like this, but uses sweetened condensed milk instead of whole milk, then uses a 50/50 blend of brown and white sugar to carmalized the top and finishes it with frozen mixed berries (from the grocery store freezer section) - c'est magnifique!!!

Creamy Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2011
I don't like peanut butter and thus, do not like peanut butter fudge. . .but, man, do I LOVE this stuff! Incredible! I took other folks' advice and stirred until it came to a rolling boil over medium heat after which I left it alone for 7 minutes to boil on its own. I took it off the fire and added the marsh. cream, then peanut butter and vanilla, NOT waiting for it to cool (as another reviewer stated)incorporating each before adding the next AND I used a hand mixer. Not too difficult and with great results; beautiful to look at, creamiest texture ever and incredible flavor. Thank you so much for this one!

Maple Walnut Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2011
I took JillP.'s advice regarding extra maple and she was right! This is the BEST MAPLE FUDGE I've EVER had. I gave up fudge about 4 years ago after screwing up 2 batches. Just figured I sucked at it and moved on to other things. This year, however, I decided to try my hand again and am so glad I did. This is not only FAR EASIER than the recipes I'd followed before, it tastes so incredible. . .like Candy Shoppe type fudge! Thanks so much for this great recipe and for your modifications, JillP.!!

Bierrocks III

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2011
First- I made my own pastry from scratch and it was fantastic and I will not use anything else now. The filling I thought was incredibly bland (I followed the recipe initially and tasted the filling before coming to this conclusion). I wound up adding extra salt, pepper, some garlic, and about 2-3TB of deli mustard. After these fixes, these were outstanding, wonderful pub food delights!

Fiesta Pinwheels

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2011
Great as written but. . .I have taken this recipe and added chopped jalapenos, removed the picante sauce, and added cheddar cheese and it is incredible!!! Tasty enough this way that you don't need to serve it with salsa! I do think the next time I make these I will serve with guacamole, though, I think guac would really compliment these well!. Thanks for a great recipe!

Creamy Oriental Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2011
This dressing is WAY TOO SWEET the way it is written. I have tried it as written and was not happy with it at all. I have taken the mayo, salt, soy, added xtra ginger, a bit of onion and garlic powders, a few drops of sesame oil, some white rice wine vinegar and a bit of ketchup for at tad of sweetness and color. My way, in my opinion anyway, made it much more authentically asian.

Grandma McAndrews' Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2011
I have made alot of Irish Soda Bread in my day. I usually use Katie Reilly's mix, but forgot to order it in time for our annual St. Patrick's Day meal so. . . this is why I tried this recipe. This is quite a good recipe. I do still prefer Katie Reilly's as I like my soda bread a bit sweeter than this one came out. But I must say that of ALL the from-scratch recipes I've baked, this one is the best by far!
