Danish Kringle

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2010
These were a hit with my family! We had a get together and I made three... one with almond filling, another with cream cheese and raspberry filling and the last with apple pie filling. They were devoured and I had many requests for the recipe! Will definately make this again!

Jim Kaczmarek's Chili

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2010
This is my favorite chili recipe! I use it all the time... the only change I make is to use dried beans, soaked overnight (not canned). I use cubed chuck roast for the meat... but it tastes great with ground chicken or turkey too! The flavors really pop out with the white meat.

Pasta Salad with Homemade Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2010
The dressing for this pasta salad is delicious! I would probably double it next time since a lot of it was absorbed into the pasta overnight.

Grandma's Polish Perogies

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
WOW... I made these back in april for easter dinner. My step-father is polish and he went wild for these. We served them fried in butter with sour cream and a cream horseradish on the side... they were amazing. I made them exactly as written, except I added crumbled bacon and garlic to the filling. We froze a bunch of them to eat later and they stored nicely. I used a tip from a previous reviewer and froze them flat on parchment and then bagged them in freezer bags. When I wanted to cook them, I brought a pan of water to a roiling boil and then added them frozen to the pot. They were done when they started to float. YUMMY!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
Very good... I have made this recipe several times over the past year. My family loves it. I definitely think it tastes better with fresh blueberries, vs frozen... so good!

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
My hubby said this was very good. I'm not a big fan of shrimp, but I tried a piece and liked it... I can't say I loved it, but the fact that I was able to eat it at all is saying something. Thanks!

Zucchini Bread VII

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
Finally... I found a zucchini bread I like! I was overloaded with zucchini this year, and have tried 3 other recipes before this one. The others were too dense (almost spongey) and way too cinnamon-y for my tastes. Although I did add about a 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and allspice to this recipe give it a hint of flavor... it was just right, not overpowering at all. The second time I made it I added a 1/2 cup of chopped apples... Delicious! I also drain my zucchini... I don't squeeze it out, I just let it drain in a colander while I prepare the recipe. It still comes out super moist and delicious!

Zucchini Alfredo

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2009
Very good! The first time I made it exactly as written and my family really liked it... the second time I took the advice of previous reviewers and tried to ramp up the flavor a bit. I added extra garlic (we love garlic) and I saute'd 1/2 of a sweet onion with it... my family LOVED it...Next time I think I'll add some mushrooms too! This is definately a keeper!

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2009
WOW... We have a ton of zucchini growing in our garden right now, so I've been searching for recipes to use it up. I thought I'd give this one a try, since I love chocolate, but was amazed at how good they came out. To be honest though, I wouldn't really call them a brownie... more like a really fudgy, moist cake. Don't get me wrong, they are chocolately and dense, but more like a cake. For those of you who are familiar with Whacky Cake, it's a very similar taste/texture. The best part is my two sons (6 and 11) had no idea they were eating zucchini. When I first mixed it up, I thought they'd be able to see it in the cake, but once it was done baking and the frosting was on it... you couldn't tell... it literally dissolved into the batter. It was even funnier when they still didn't believe me even after I told them... Gotta love it!

Crispy and Creamy Doughnuts

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
OMG... So GOOD! After reading many of the reviews, I had very high hopes that these would taste just like the ones at my local bakery... they were BETTER! My 10 yr old son said I should become a doughnut maker :) I followed the recipe exact and they were light and fluffy doughnuts with a tasty sweet glaze on the outside. We ate some when they were warm and they melted in your mouth. The only tip I would give is after you make your doughnut shape, place them on wax paper or parchment paper that's been dusted with flour... that way after they're done rising they'll just slide off the paper into the oil and they won't deflate! I'm definately going to keep this recipe in my file... but I'll have to be careful how often I make them! The recipe says it makes 18, but I used a 3 1/2 inch circle cutter and I got about 28... A day later, my family has eaten ALL of them:) Enjoy!

Coconut Shrimp I

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2007
I used this recipe with Chicken, since I'm not a fan of shrimp and it was FABULOUS...The best Coconut Chicken I have ever tasted! I didn't have beer in the house, so I used gingerale and it came out great! I did end up using more of the beer batter and flour mix than the recipe called for...just about double. But the good news is we had leftovers (unbelievably!)and I tried freezing them based on a previous review. I took them out last night (still frozen) and baked them for about 20 minutes at 350. They crisped right up and tasted as great as the first night! In fact, I think they tasted better, since there was no prep! They do take some work to make, so I've decided that the next time I make them (and there will definately be a next time), I'm going to make a huge batch and freeze the extras!

Chicken Piccata II

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2007
This was Terrific! I made a few changes based on other reviews: Pounded the chicken, then floured it lightly (with plain flour), dipped it in the egg mixture then dipped it into the flour mixture. I browned the chicken in butter and olive oil until done and placed them on a cookie sheet in the oven (250 degrees to keep warm) when they were done. While they were in the oven, I made the sauce. I doubled the recipe, brought it all to a boil (I added a little sugar, 1 tsp... helps cut the sour of the lemon), then added a little bit of cornstarch mixed with water to help thicken it. I added the chicken right before serving... just long enough to coat it. That way the breading didn't get soggy. Everyone raved... it tasted like the one I order at my favorite restaurant! Thank you Terry!
