Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
Wow. I assembled this for Thanksgiving on Tuesday, traveled 7 hours Wednesday, baked and served it Thursday. It was fabulous. Having it prepared in advance helped me get the meal on the table all at once. And my father, who 'compliments the chef' but NEVER specifically points out a dish told me to give my mother the recipe!! My husband loved the pecans. Both said it was not too sweet as many sweet potato casseroles can be.

Very Chocolate Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2008
I agree with some others who had trouble getting this to freeze, except... I persisted and now I rate this a 5 star. On my first batch, I hurried. I didn't "temper" the eggs properly (that's where you take warm mix out, add to egg & return to the pan). And I threw in semi sweet chips that I presumed had melted sufficiently. Then I failed to chill well before putting in my machine. Worse yet, I used my Cuisinart freezer that allows a fairly thick build-up in the canister between the dasher & the edge, preventing the center from getting to the coldest area. The band-aid was to put the half-frozen mix into a shallow container in the freezer and stir every few hours until it was ice cream. Tasted good, but had "bits" (either choc chip or egg - not sure) The CURE is: follow the directions! Do not boil, properly temper the eggs, use as tiny chocolate bits as you can (shaved is best), chill completely before freezing, and use a maker whose dasher really scrapes the canister edge. (My Waring did great) If you don't hurry, you will be rewarded with a very rich, delicious ice cream. As another reviewer stated - not overly chocolate in flavor, but exceptionally rich in taste & texture.

Wasabi Mayonnaise Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2008
Do NOT use Miracle Whip in this recipe. I did and it is way too sweet. I added horseradish & dijon mustard to fix the problem, but next time I'll be sure I have real mayo in the house.

Whipped Cream Mousse Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2012
I don't like icing/frosting, but I can "stand" light, airy versions that aren't too sweet. Needing to frost cupcakes for guests, we made this recipe as directed, and again with chocolate pudding and a tad of Kahlua. Yum. This just became my go to frosting.

German Schwenkbraten

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2008
The flavor of this meat was fabulous. I picked the recipe hoping to match the pork we ate in Germany last summer. I served it to my German-immigrant in-laws. We all agree on 3 points... 1)the pork was great 2)I should've used sweet/vidalia onions and 3) this isn't German. Curry is absolutely not a spice used in Duetchland until relatively recently. I would absolutely make this again, especially for a summer cook-out.

Mock Champagne

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2005
I tried this New Year's 2004 after many years of using straight ginger ale for kids. After the first glass, all the kids opted to pour themselves just ginger ale and by-pass the pitcher of mock champagne.

Won Tons

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2006
I changed way too much in the "stuffing" for a fair rating, but my husband LOVED the dipping sauce, and I loved the basic instructions. Turned out great - the whole family liked them. (FYI, I used pork shreds from a different meal instead of crab, and skipped the chestnuts)

Cashew Raisin Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2014
LOVE this recipe for its color and texture. Definitely a good choice when planning a fancy meal. Raisins are not an option in our household, so we didn't add 'em. Otherwise an excellent dish. The only reason I reserved one star is that it's really tough to make this just right (texturally). First, one has to find wild rice separate from long grain, which I eventually did, but it's expensive that way. Easier to locate are myriads of rice mixtures which, of course, cook up part mushy & part crispy. This will stay in my go-to recipes for dressed up meals, but for a staple I'll use this simply as a way to pretty up singular rice cooked per package directions.

Lip-smacking Popcorn Concoction

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
Sounded great & the online reviews were glowing. I was sold with "never have leftovers". But... I had leftovers - practically the entire batch. Eleven teens barely touched this. Some girls ate it when I prompted late in the night. Anybody who said they liked it got a full bag to take home with 'em.

Marinated Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
My grocery only had bone-in, so the butcher de-boned & skinned a double breast for me. The string-tied breasts looked pretty thick to cook in the recommended 30 min. Webber cookbook says to sear 8 min per side over med. high then 45 min of indirect med. heat. Delicious.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies III

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2009
I followed this recipe exactly. Tasted GREAT. Some of mine were baked a couple minutes longer than others - family differed in which they liked better, crispy or soft. I used my regular cookie scoop, but dropped onto a plate & cut in half before rolling & putting on baking sheet. Nice size - more like the promised girl scout cookies. Um... I also had no cream on hand, so I used my hazelnut coffee creamer in the icing. I didn't taste 'the other nut', but it sure was good. Made more frosting than necessary as another reviewer stated. We still put a dent in the leftover icing by just snitching fingertipfulls.

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2006
I totally cheated. I bought frozen cooked shrimp, thawed it, marinated it and broiled it. Mmm. I love basil & this recipe was perfect.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2006
I made this exactly as directed. The taste was pretty good, but it didn't beat my grandma's toasted oatmeal cookies (uses sour milk & toasts the oatmeal first). I also prefer the oatmeal cookie recipe on the Quaker Oats box. If you want soft, add a slice of apple to the container when they start getting crisp. (Grandma's tip)

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
Multiplied this recipe by 9 and had NO leftovers! I used 4 butternut squash, intending to add carrots too. (voted out by the other church dinner cook) Followed the recipe x 9 for the rest, except much less oil -- added that by eye. Found beautiful small Yukons I could just halve. Completely forgot salt & pepper (hectic kitchen) Served 65 meals then the kitchen staff of 10-12 teenagers polished off the rest!! Wonderful recipe; great for cut ahead - cook when needed. Thanks, Saundra.

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2008
Had I never tried Lisa's Chicken Marsala, this recipe would've been a 5. (wish I could give a 4.9) It's great, my family loves it, but the marsala is just one notch better in our minds. This recipe is a tad closer to chicken piccata with the acidic ingredients whereas the marsala is more sweet. I'll make this again I'm sure.

Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
I made this twice within a month. First, for a football get together -- my guests LOVED it. Second, for Thanksgiving weekend. I made the soup Monday without spinach, refrigerated it for travel, and served it (heated w/o spinach) Saturday night with a great freshly baked crusty bread. The only reason I left out the spinach the second time was ease. The soup tastes great both ways.

Potato Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2005
Sorry, but a 5 star means make it for company and make it frequently for the family. This recipe was just sweet bread with sugar on top. Basic homemade buttermilk bread would be an equally good gift, and makes a great morning treat toasted with cinnamon suger. If you want sweet, make a coffee CAKE. If you want bread, make bread. This is good, but not a show stopper.

Kugel

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
Never made Kugel before. Made this recipe times 9. I attempted to follow it to the letter, but I think I messed up some numbers. (probably too little cottage cheese; maybe too much cream cheese) Stirring, esp. folding in 54 whipped egg whites was challenging - tranferred between bowls to thoroughly mix. Poured into 3 church baking pans & refrigerated overnight. Warmed to room temp & baked as directed. Turned out delicious. Thanks, Ann!

Martha's Vegetable Beef Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
Five star ease with a 3 star taste. Mostly 'cause the onion soup mix stayed too prominent. An excellent duo with Beef Noodle Shepherd's Pie -- they have similar ingredients, one with tomato, one with potato.

Baked Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
I found this recipe to be a nice option for a colorful side dish. Tasted great. Followed the recipe exactly. Quote from my sweet potato hater: If you have to have sweet potatoes, this isn't a bad way to have 'em.
