Blueberry Breakfast Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2011
We really enjoyed this. I did add 1/4 tsp. salt with the dry ingredients. Very tasty for breakfast or a snack.

A Fragrant, Spicy Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2011
This was good, but needed just a little tweaking. I decreased the liquid in the rice, and increased it in the lentil mixture. I used parsley instead of cilantro since I had it on hand. If using as a side dish, I'd say this makes at least 8 servings. This is a bit labor-intensive, but the results are very tasty.

Caramelized Pork Slices

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2011
Delicious, quick, and simple. The pork was moist and tender, and the glaze was wonderful. I did season the pork with salt and pepper before browning in the oil. I mixed together the orange juice, molasses, brown sugar, salt, and pepper in a small bowl before adding to the pan. DH loved this, so I will definitely make it again!

Huckleberry Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2011
This was good, but it was a little wetter than I would have liked. I did used frozen peaches, but they were very well drained before putting the cobbler together. I used blueberries as suggested since huckleberries don't seem to be available in my area. This is a very tasty dessert served with vanilla ice cream.

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2011
I loved this. I followed the recipe exactly with excellent results. I did use parsley as I had it on hand. Thanks for a great recipe!

Cheese, Broccoli, and Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2011
This turned out to be more of a side dish than a soup. The instant rice continued to absorb so much of the liquid that it became very thick. I had to add more liquid before serving. The overall flavor was good, but I would only recommend using half the recommended rice in this recipe.

Lemon Pound Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2011
Tasty, but even after baking 60 minutes the center of this cake was almost too moist. It fell apart easily when cut, but tasted great with strawberries and whipped cream.

New York State Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2011
These tasted very good, but were very heavy and almost too wet. They didn't keep well as a result. I halved the recipe but had enough batter for twelve muffins.

South Shore Pork Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2011
This was very good - flavorful and moist. I did season the pork roast with salt and pepper before searing it. I deglazed the searing pan with the broth (adding a little extra) and then added that liquid to the roasting pan. The sauce/gravy was a delicious addition. Thanks for a tasty recipe.

European Muesli

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2011
Yes, this is granola. No, I will not rate it lower because the submitter calls it "muesli". It's a good, tasty, basic granola recipe. I'd suggest using at least two baking sheets. I made half a batch and had to divide it between two baking sheets to get it to bake evenly. If you want chunky granola, don't stir during the last 40 minutes or so. This is great served with yogurt and berries.

Orange Juice Muffins with Honey Spread

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2011
These are very quick and easy to put together. They are best served warm. The honey spread really seals the deal. They do dry out rather quickly, so they're not as good the next day. I used foil baking cups instead of greasing the pan. I also got 9 muffins rather than 12. They rose beautifully. Next time I might add some orange zest to the honey spread.

Spaghetti with Broccoli and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2011
This is a great combination of flavors. I did have to make some adjustments due to using fresh ingredients. I chopped fresh broccoli, mushrooms, and garlic and sauteed those in a combination of butter and olive oil. I added the cheese and other ingredients, but this still needed liquid to pull it together. I threw in some chicken broth, but white wine or vegetable broth would work (to keep it vegetarian - I was serving chicken with it.)

Lower Fat Chicken Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2011
This was delicious. I do think there's a problem with the recipe, though. I can't help wondering if it's supposed to read 1 qt of chicken broth rather than one cup. I used frozen green beans from my garden, so I added 1 extra cup to start with to make up for the missing liquid. There was still nowhere near enough liquid. I ended up using several extra cups and a little extra tomato juice, too. I thought the seasonings were spot-on, not overpowering at all. My cabbage cooked away to nothing by the time the soup was done. This would be a five star recipe if not for the amount of liquid. I would absolutely say start with 4 cups of broth. One cup is definitely not enough. Leftovers are great the next day.

Mardi Gras King Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2011
I've made this for several years now. The only things keeping this from being a 5 star recipe (in my opinion) are the baking time and the glaze. First, I checked my first cake when there were 14 minutes left on the timer. It already looked done, but I knew the filling wouldn't be. This is when I remembered having to watch it very closely the other times. I took it out after 23 minutes and it was actually a little darker than I wanted. My second cake was completely baked in 20 minutes. I do have an oven thermometer, so I know my temp is correct. Second, the glaze/frosting recipe is way off. You'll have to add way more than 1 TBSP of water to make this work, then there is only enough to cover one cake (unless you only want a tiny bit on each one.) I ended up almost doubling the frosting recipe in order tohave enough for both cakes. Filling is a matter of preference. I've used the included recipe with raisins and without. I've also used a cream cheese and cherry filling and a whipped chocolate filling. I generally do have to add a good bit of extra flour to make the dough "come together," but the dough is a dream to work with when it's finished.

Shrimp Creole III

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
I thought this was pretty good, but my husband didn't really care for it. I halved the recipe, but otherwise followed it, with one exception: cooking the rice. I followed the package directions to avoid ending up with gluey rice. I was surprised to see just how different my finished product looked from the photo that was showing at the time. I could have used a little more heat in this dish, but it was tasty as is.

Roasted Salmon with Orange-Ginger Glaze

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
Very tasty recipe. I used white balsamic vinegar since none was specified. This has a mild flavor which makes it easy to pair with many sides. I served it with rice and roasted asparagus.

Pepperoni Pizza Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
These are good and simple to put together. I left out the olives as none of my family likes them. These are best served warm. Thanks for a tasty recipe.

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011

Meghan and Jenn's Veggie, Chicken and Herb Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
I made this recipe as part of a soup and salad supper (served with Italian Bread from a Bread Machine). The soup itself is tasty, but (as pointed out by another reviewer) it's not that pretty. Although I did cook it for the recommended time, I didn't add the broccoli until the last half hour. I added a handful of frozen peas and carrots that needed using. If I make this again, I would cook the chicken separately (or just use leftover chicken) and throw it in near the end. Cooking the chicken from a raw state is part of what makes it "not so pretty" - the length of cooking time is the other. This soup could do with a much shorter cooking time. I did add additional boullion for a little more flavor. I also used frozen mixed peppers because I had them on hand.

Farmer's Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
This is a tasty salad and very quick to throw together. I chose this recipe as part of a soup and salad supper, mostly because I had all the ingredients on hand (I don't usually have iceberg lettuce around, but may buy it more often just to make this salad.) The dressing was a little sweet for my taste, but that may have been my vinegar, which was white wine vinegar. I added a little extra vinegar and some salt and pepper. I loved the crispy bacon with the sweetness of the dressing. I might add some matchstick carrots next time for some added crunch and color. Thanks for a very tasty recipe!
