Chinese Chicken Salad III

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2013
We included this salad in the food served at our backyard party, our goal being to prepare foods that could be served cold whenever everyone climbed out of the pool and wanted to eat. The dressing was a little too strong for our tastes, but having read the reviews, I also included the lime vinaigrette, with just a drizzle of the hoisin-peanut dressing, and it worked perfectly that way. We would definitely make this again.

Rich and Creamy Potatoes Au Gratin

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2013
Made this for Easter dinner, which meant there wouldn't be a lot of time to prepare it after the morning church service. I made the entire dish up to the point where it was ready to bake the night before, then covered and refrigerated it overnight. I was worried the potatoes would be mushy, so I sliced them a bit thicker than the recipe called for, but they were just fine. They baked while I roasted the asparagus and tossed the salad, and were perfect. I loved the Gruyere in this, and would definitely make it again. This reminded me of the individual baked portions of au gratin potatoes I've had at a local steakhouse - one of my favorite splurges there. Thanks for sharing Celeste!

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2013
My son had to prepare a recipe from any Latin American country to share with his World Studies class. He chose this because it would be easy to share (no utensils or slicing and serving needed). He used part chocolate milk drink mix, and relied on the tips so many reviewers have shared to prepare it. Since his class is nut-free, he rolled some in chocolate sprinkles, and some in silver sugar. They were simple to make, and turned out really well. I was worried they would be sickly sweet, but they were about the same as any other candy. The consistency of the finished product reminded me of a Tootsie Roll. Fun recipe to make, too. Thanks for sharing.

Cinnamon Swirl Bread for the Bread Machine

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2013
Excellent! I could tell from the recipe that there would not be enough filling without the walnuts, and since I planned to omit them, I, too, doubled the cinnamon/sugar mixture. When baked and thickly sliced, the texture of this bread is smooth and soft, the sticky, cinnamon-spicy sweetness oozes out and it creates the perfect ratio of bread to filling. The kids slathered their slices in homemade apple butter a friend gave us for Christmas, but even plain, this stuff is heavenly!

Spaghetti Carbonara II

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2012
Decent, easy version of pasta carbonara. This is one of those dishes that is heavily influenced by the quality of the ingredients used. I used pancetta (about double what the recipe called for) and Parmigiano-Reggiano, and added a little cream at the same time as the eggs and cheese. We usually eat light, healthy fare, so this was something different for us. All things in moderation...

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake VII

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
I had purchased a pineapple that wasn't quite sweet enough, and there was a stray cake mix in the pantry, so I helped my daughter make this cake. She'd never heard of pineapple upside-down cake, and was skeptical that she would like it! After it was cooled and sliced, she said, "Why haven't we ever made this before?" It doesn't get much easier, and it was the perfect ending to a family pool-side afternoon. And a perfect way to use up a rather bland pineapple, too!

Banana Cream Pie IV

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2012
This was easy to make, and very sweet (a little too sweet with the caramel topping), but just lacked flavor. It might be better with banana pudding, rather than vanilla or at least one of each. I've also decided I don't like instant pudding (has a weird "mouth feel"), so maybe the cook and serve kind would be a good sub. Actually, just making my own pudding and whipped cream would probably do the trick, but then it's not a quick, easy dessert anymore!
