Peach Sorbet

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2010
We liked the fresh (non-sugary) flavor of this sorbet, but the texture after freezing was like an ice block. Followed the recipe to the letter, so I'm not sure what happened, but I'll not be making this again.

Peach-a-Berry Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2010
I made a crust from AR web site and brushed the crust with an egg wash before baking. Flavor is delicious, but fruit consistency is a little runny. Delicious in spite of that!

Best Ever Pie Crust

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2010
As others have stated, the dough was not easy to work with. I managed to get the top crust on the pie pretty well, so it looked O.K. (the bottom one was a mess). Seems like a lot of water for a pie crust to me, so next time, I'll use less and see what happens. On the positive side, it was very tender, flaky, and delicious for a fruit pie.

Microwave Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2010
Followed other reviewers' advice and cut off the silk on the end of the cob, peeled off some of the outer husk (so you're basically steaming the cob) and microwaved on high for six minutes for two ears of corn. Every bit as good as boiled corn, with no heating up the kitchen or a dirty pot to wash after dinner. Very good!

Apricot Carrots

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2010
A really nice change from candied carrots with honey and brown sugar. Fresh flavor that would go with so many entrees and easy to make. Used Polaner apricot preserves.

Muffin Frittatas

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2010
Great brunch item! They look good on the plate, they're tender and taste delicious. Never would you think there was zucchini in here. I can see adding crumbled bacon or chopped ham to the egg mixture making them even better. Next time, I'm going to try using Egg Beaters in an effort to get the cholesterol down. Definite keeper!

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2010
Have made this twice, the second time with cremini mushrooms (baby portobello mushrooms), reduced fat margarine and sour cream, fat free chicken broth (Kitchen Basics, the best), and skim milk. The lighter ingredients did not affect the richness of this soup. This recipe is as good as any mushroom soup I've ever had, including some served at fine restaurants. The dill and the lemon definitely dominate, and next time, I'm going to start by reducing both by half, then taste, and add back if necessary. REALLY good soup!

Lemony Cucumbers

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2010
Only change made was that I peeled and seeded the cukes (that's the way that we like them). Good recipe, but a little heavy in the celery seed. Will make again but with 1 tsp of the celery seed.

Slow Cooker Tapioca Pudding

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2010
Lightened it by using skim milk, Splenda, and Egg Beaters. Turned out pretty well, although the texture was a bit different than I'm used to, but the flavor was right on.

Fresh Tomato Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2010
This is good salsa. The peppers I had in the refrigerator were jalapenos and thai red chili peppers (which are very hot). I added one of each, and the heat was just about right. Good way to use tomatoes while they're at the peak of their season.

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2010
Nice side dish with a very mild taste. Next time I make this I'll just toss the cauliflower florets with the oil and the garlic. Putting all into the bag and shaking left quite a bit of the garlic sticking to inside of the oily bag which then left a mess to get out to put on the cauliflower.

Fiery Pork Skewers

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2010
How often do you find a fabulous entree that has only five ingredients other than the meat??? I very often put the pork cubes in the marinade in the morning for an easy evening meal. If you thread some chucks of onion and red bell pepper (and fresh pineapple if I have it) onto the skewer, you then have your side dish as well. Usually serve with rice and steamed pea pods. This is a Go-To recipe if ever there was one.

Flaky Food Processor Pie Crust

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2010
Wow, don't know what I did wrong, but this pie crust just fell apart and was a total disaster. I finally was able to fit the bottom crust in the pie pan, then filled it with the sliced peaches, then was able to put the top crust on (with many patches). I was so focused on trying to make the pie crust work that I realized afterwards that I forgot to add the dry ingredients to the peaches (flour, sugar, cinnamon, etc. sitting in a bowl). Well, I decided to bake it anyway. It was horrible. I think I just should have stayed out of the kitchen yesterday.

Microwaved Potatoes Lyonnaise

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2010
As suggested by reviewers, I increased the spices. These potatoes were easy and quite good, warmed up well the next day, and definitely will be included in future meals.

Lemon Sorbet

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2010
Using the diced peel of one lemon is too much...think about 1/4 would work fine. This sorbet was OK, but not spectacular. I don't know if it was the carbonated mineral water or substituting Splenda for the sugar, but the texture of this turned out strange, kind of like picking up a handful of very light snow, not at all compact. I doubt that I'll make this again, but if I did, I think I'd increase the sweetener.

Carrot Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
Interesting combination of flavors with carrots, ginger root, peanuts, and cayenne. Don't omit the peanuts, as they're really important to the flavor of this dish. I was little concerned that the sliced onions wouldn't work as well as chopped onions, but they incorporated well into the rice. Very good side dish; I wouldn't change a thing.

Scottish Bubbles and Squeak Patties

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2010
Unlike other reviewers, I didn't think there was anything really great about this. My potato patties held together just fine, but the flavor wasn't much better than just using leftover mashed potatoes and browning them. And that would be with a lot less effort than what was put into shredding cabbage and cheese, grating a carrot, and mincing an onion. Won't be making this again; sorry, it's just too ordinary in my opinion.

Cilantro-Lime Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2010
Creamy and mild-flavored rice; the lime and cilantro do not overpower the chicken taste from the bouillon . Served with border-style shrimp, black beans topped with chopped onions, spiced marinated tomatoes, and cherry jello with sliced fresh cherries. This is solid side dish to accompany a variety of entrees.

Blackened Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2010
Very tasty and very juicy. I don't own a cast iron skillet, so I used my Le Creuset skillet to brown and then transferred to the baking sheet for the oven. The level of spiciness always is a matter of taste, but next time, I'll cut back to 1/8 tsp of the cayenne. Nice chicken entree, really easy and quick to get on the table.

Easy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2010
Used dried apricots and blueberries and semi-sweet mini chocolate chips (the chocolate chips make this special). They taste like the Kellogg's dark chocolate-almond bars you buy at the grocery store. Watch the baking time, as you don't want these to overcook. Absolutely delicious and EASY.
