Grilled Asparagus

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2014
Can't go wrong with this recipe. Quick, simple and delicious. Using a grilling pan, put the trimmed and washed asparagus in it, sprayed with olive oil (I have one of those aerosol bottles where you put in your own oil, pump and spray), sprinkled some kosher salt and some coarse black pepper. Viola! Great side dish.

Grilled Peaches

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2014
This was an easy recipe to follow and impressed my dinner guests. I didn't realize how much vinegar was needed. I bought a 16 oz bottle and used most of it since I doubled the recipe; I made 4 whole peaches. I did cut the pepper down by half. After I cooked it, I put it through a sieve to catch the pepper. For some reason, the pepper I bought is big pieces and not really powdery. I ended up only using half the glaze. I'm saving the leftover to use it for another day. We skipped the blue cheese and I topped them off with vanilla frozen yogurt since that's all I had in my freezer. It had such interesting and complex flavor and kept me going for more. One guest dunked a Madeline cookie in it. My little back story: my husband grilled these the same time as the dinner so I had to think of a way keeping them warm. I put them in my toaster oven on warm for about an hour and these things kept on cooking, they were so soft and gooey delicious! Word of caution, keep the temperature low because some of the peaches began to burn. I just peeled some of the crusty burned parts off but it was still so delicious! My husband recommended tossing in some brandy next time but I thought it was perfect the way it was.

Spicy Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2014
This was just perfect. Followed recipe exactly and it did not disappoint! I wasn't sure at first if it was enough oil but it was. I used jumbo prawns which were de-veined only and let it marinate for about two hours. Used kosher salt and didn't have any salt issues as discussed in some of the reviews. I would not change a thing and will make these again. Made them for dinner guests and they were all impressed and enjoyed the shrimp. Served with bbq mushrooms and bbq asparagus. The only downside (not recipe related) was that the guests had to peel the shells off but they didn't mind the mess.

Garlic Mashed Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2011
First time using red potatoes and we loved it. It was easy to make and turned out delicious! Key word - EASY. I added more garlic cloves since we love garlic and used 2% milk because that's what I always have at home. I tasted it before adding the Parmesan cheese and it tasted wonderful too! I think the garlic is what gives it the best flavor so don't skip out on it.

Jenny's Grilled Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2010
This was a solid recipe which I will use again. I added lemon pepper seasoning, a few shakes of pepper flakes, and a dash of EVOO. It marinated for an hour before going on the grill. It had the perfect lemon flavoring and was moist. I served it with a side of jambalaya seasoned rice.

Whole Wheat Honey Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2010
WOW! This is great bread. I used butter instead of shortening and mixed the salt with the liquids; both suggested by other reviewers. I am so happy with it! It's got the right amount of balance to it, not dense and not too sweet. Also, I used the white bread setting and put it to light - I have an Oster machine.

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2010
After 4 hours in the crock pot, the pork got shredded and tossed in the dutch oven with bbq sauce from our favorite local restaurant. It was simple and delicious. My husband finished his sandwich as I was not even halfway done with mine. Needless to say, he loved it. We will definitely make this again and keep with the original recipe. No need to modify.

Slow Cooker Lemon Garlic Chicken II

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2010
This was great! I used chicken broth and white wine. Didn't really measure anything, just threw it all in there and left it on high for 3 hours. Cut up some fresh parsley from my yard for the last hour on warm and it was really delicious. I served with a side of risotto and used the juices from the crock pot to enhance the rice flavor.

Creamy Sage Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
Modifications: + Used Parmesan cheese and doubled the chicken broth as I didn't have heavy cream (as suggested in another review) + Used my spice and nut grinder to mince the sage leaves instead of chopping + Added a dash of flour to thicken the sauce. Review: I thought it was a good sage based sauce but a little on the buttery side for me. Will make again, but with less butter next time.

Beef Bourguignon II

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
Made this in the slow cooker and it was delicious! Used pearl onions, fresh mushrooms, and a bottle of pinot noir. Served with side of mashed potatoes and asparagus. It was very easy to make and resulted in a great rich flavor. This was something my husband has always wanted to make and was very pleased with it. It was a melt in your mouth experience. This dish was such a treat, we will definitely be making this again!

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
I made these for our Christmas Eve dinner and it was the first thing we ran out of. I used flavored cream cheese and used it sparingly. The prosciutto was thinly sliced too. This was the perfect side dish, even for non-asparagus eaters. I made them again for dinner guests this week and it was a big hit, again. This will be in my rotation of side dishes from now on. It's simple, yet elegant and delicious.

Cumin Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
I loved these. They were spicy, tender, and delicious. I would definitely make these again. Used the suggestion of putting them in the freezer for 30 minutes before grilling. YUM!

Slow Cooker Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
1. browned chops and de-glazed with beer. 2. seasoned with salt and pepper 3. added one medium sized onion (sliced) 4. added 8 oz sliced mushrooms 5. added remaining beer (used New Castle dark beer) review: my husband said it was the best pork recipe we have cooked to date. He was ready to eat it all! The pork came out very tender and juicy. As for me, I don't like sauerkraut nor the smell of it - it definitely smelled like it throughout the house. I did taste the pork and it was good. We will be making this again, for him.

Shrimp Scampi V

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2009
WOW! This turned out great with my additions. I used raw shrimp: let it sit in the wine and black pepper for 30 minutes. Used EVOO and a spoon of butter. Added a lot of red pepper flakes and about 2 Tbsp of lemon juice. Also used about 1/2 cup of the reserve water from the pasta to help thicken it up. It was delicious!

Marinated Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
This was a good recipe, the only downside was not having a thicker sauce. I cooked covered for 30, then 20 uncovered, and finished off with broiling for a very short time. Although I made 2 chops, I used the recipe for 6 chops to make the sauce. It turned out really tender and delicious. I will definitely make this again considering the ingredients are always readily available.
