Re:Horseradish Cream

Very easy to make with good taste. Not a super exciting recipe, but good to have in my repertoir.

Re:Baked Brie with Dried Cherries & Thyme

Super easy and very delicious. Cherries are hard to chop because they are so sticky, but otherwise really, really simple. Everyone raved - will definitely make this again.

Re:Spice-Rubbed Roast Beef Tenderloin with Red Wine Sauce Recipe

Great recipe. Easy to make and delicious. Quality of meat is critical to this dish - get the best you can possibly afford. I used Shiraz for the sauce, then added some Cabernet to increase the sauce recipe by half because I was afraid I wouldn't have enough (I would have, FYI). The mix still worked great. Definitely a keeper.

Re:Brown Butter Pumpkin Layer Cake

Super delicious! Easy to make and got huge raves all around. I increased recipe by half again to make a 3 layer cake (doubled the frosting) and left out the pepitas, but otherwise did recipe as written. Cake baked up even, moist and delicious. This is a keeper - will use again and again. Next up - cupcakes.

Re:Chicken Tostadas with Black Beans and Cilantro-Lime Cream

Delicious and easy to make. I reduced the chicken to 3 cups, and next time would probably drop to 2. Also, no need to dirty a second pan for the chicken - just mix it into the bean mixture until hot. Once you put it all on the tostada and cover it with lettuce, it's going to look the same anyway. Although the sour cream sauce was good, I think this dish would be just as good without it. I probably won't bother with that extra step next time.

Re:Hot Italian Sausage with Fresh-Corn Polenta

I cooked the polenta in half chicken stock, half water and would definitely do that again. I found that my polenta cooked a lot faster than indicated in this recipe. I used spicy Italian sausage as indicated in the recipe, but next time would use something even more flavorful, like Andouille. Also would add more corn - the bursts of sweet corn were with the spicy sausage were what really made this recipe work. Easy and pretty quick to make, definitely a keeper.

Re:Savory Shrimp Fajitas

Great recipe! I did these as tostadas instead of fajitas. Quick, easy and delicious.

Re:Oatmeal-Chocolate Chip Waffle Cookies

This was very easy and quick to put together. I followed the recipe exactly except that I used peanut butter chips instead of chocolate. While easy to make and a unique presentation, I didn't think they were anything all that great. Certainly fine, something sweet, but it was basically a little mini waffle with chips in it - not a cookie. My boyfriend liked them more than I did, but I won't be making these again.

Re:Honey-Nut Bars

These were very easy to make and a big hit. These were one of 3 recipes I made for a charity bake sale at the office and were the first to sell out. A great, wholesome, nutty treat that looks exactly like the picture, packs well and was loved by all. Would be great for gift giving and a nice departure from the same 'ol, same 'ol.

Re:Mixed-Berry Pie

This rating is for the filling only - I used a phyllo crust to save calories. Very easy to put together and quite tasty. Filling would also work well in a trifle or over ice cream. We found ours a little too sweet, so would reduce sugar next time. Probably just need to check the sweetness of your berries and adjust sugar accordingly. Overall, quick, easy and tasty. Only down side is remembering it needs hours to chill before it's ready to eat!
