Pasta Carcione

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2007
So easy, and it makes a really good summer pasta. Try selecting the freshest of ingredients for a dish like this, as it is guaranteed it will not taste as good using frozen/canned. I love goat cheese and bowties so this really hit it home for me, although in addition I also put in some feta cheese and fresh black olives -pitted- to compliment the dish. Very simple, as the only thing that needs to be cooked is the pasta! Makes for a delicious pasta salad too that can be served for lunch or dinner. Thanks for sharing.

Thai Chicken Bites With Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2007
Oh, yum! Very similar to chicken satay, and so I used another peanut sauce recipe from here that had more of an Indian flair, but nonetheless this was really good. Next time I will try using breaded chicken bites.

Garlic Bubble Ring

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2007
We made the bread dough in the bread machine ourselves instead of using frozen...yet it was still really yummy. Garlicky enough, and definitely not for the faint of heart, although, it is quite good with pasta.

Risotto with Tomato, Corn and Basil

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2007
I have mixed reviews of this one. This recipe was very time-consuming, but didn't taste too bad. Note, you might want to use all fresh vegetables for this dish. Risottos just aren't the same when the veggies are canned.

Vicki's Hush Puppies

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2007
The sugar is unnecessary here and as per yayforsprinkles' review, we left it out, and nothing was really changed. These little fried dough balls are yummy alongside boiled/fried shrimp, soft shell crab, etc. and seafood sauce. Best eaten in the summer.

Oma's Fabulous Matzo Ball Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2007
Tried matzo ball soup at a restaurant years ago, but it certainly wasn't as good as this recipe! This is the ultimate curing soup that I make for myself or my boyfriend when we are sick, and it always leaves us feeling better the next day. In addition, I usually add some chicken pieces - I make the broth myself-, as well as some shredded root vegetables like carrot and potato, I do assume celery would be good too. However, this is a total keeper.

Cucumber Dip II

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2007
Really yummy; we served this in a hollowed out red cabbage with pita triangles, and some wedges from the red cabbage itself. Ours seemed to have a bit of an issue with blending properly, but still tasted great anyways.

Mid-Summer Italian Bread Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2007
A little unusual to have stale bread in a salad, but this is quite good! Going to look for it in Italy this summer :) Very yummy - we added in feta cheese and some black olives which I suppose made the salad more Greek than Italian, but the flavours really improved. If not a salad, this could also make a good bruschetta recipe.

Pork Empanadas

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2007
This was really good, despite the amount of the lard in there, we ended up cutting that almost down to nothing to make it healthier and the taste didn't seem to be any different. Had a little difficulty finding the masa harina until I eventually went to a specialty foods store and picked this up, these probably aren't the same without it! Thanks for sharing, Michele.

Salsa Cube Steaks

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2007
Although there is a lot of sauce, you could serve this in a taco, which we did, and ate them as a sort of fajita. Note: if you're trying this, do not use soft tacos, as they get soggy and easily fall apart. Left out the green pepper because of my allergy. Overall not too bad, will probably just try over Spanish rice next time.

Hamburger Hash

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2007
Tastes the best with scrambled eggs. There's nothing I love more than hash, eggs and sausages on a Sunday morning, and I am not a breakfast food person either. In addition we add green onions, and occasionally substitute plain ground beef for corned beef, or melt some cheddar cheese in there. Try it and you will not be disappointed.

Spicy Salmon Melt

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2007
Didn't care for these...I'd give them no stars if I could. Turned out a little mushy on me, and I could understand wasabi with a salmon steak, just not canned. Gross.

Cabbage Rolls II

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2007
Just like my grandmother used to make for us at Christmas every year!! A true recipe that reminds me of home, and one I certainly never get tired of. I left out the brown sugar because I don't like my cabbage rolls sweet, but these still ended up tasting really yummy, especially served with some homemade bread :)

Pasta Siciliano

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2007
This reminds me of being in Italy again, it's so good! Used goat cheese as we prefer that to feta, and added in a jar of pickled artichoke hearts just for some variation. No farfalle either, so I improvised and used macaroni -pasta is pasta, after all- and it still turned out great.

Classic Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2007
Just like the stuff they used to make in our school cafeteria, very similar to the Amish recipe in my opinion...so good. :)

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2007
Oh. My. Goodness. This was delicious! I've heard of Chicken Cordon Bleu before but have never made/got to taste it, until last night. Time-consuming wrapping everything up, but well worth it! I added some basil in my sauce, and added a couple drops of sherry. Sooo good, thanks for sharing Behr. :D

Seafood Salad III

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2007
As there is way too much liquid for the amount of crabmeat, I halved the mayo mixture and doubled the amount of imitation crab...so good! We also left out the green pepper because I have a bell pepper allergy, and substituted some onion for that, just like we do when making salmon spread...this one's definitely a keeper.

Baked Stuffed Clams

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2007
I highly recommend adding the clams last so they don't get overcooked and rubbery. Otherwise, this really wasn't too bad, just the kind of thing I look for in seafood recipes. We threw in more spices and some homemade seafood seasoning for flavour, in addition to a couple drops of hot sauce. Very good.

Amish Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2007
This stuff is the best! Reminds me of the macaroni salad they served in our cafeteria in high school -which was very good, by the way!- I only left out the hard boiled egg in this case since I'm not fond of them, and it still tasted very yummy.
