Savoiardi I

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
Pretty good recipe, but time consuming if you are thinking of making tiramisu. I'm buying store bought next time. I did lower the oven temperature to 350 F since 375 was just too high to bake the fluffy dough needed for savoiardi.

Chocolate-Candy Cane Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2007
This recipe lacked flavor. The result was a sluggish looking candy cane. I threw out the rest of the batter. I will not bake these cookies ever again. The cream cheese softened the dough too much.

Urban Legend Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2007
I heard of this recipe back when Gopher, Pine and listservs ruled the internet. In fact, I've been baking a similar recipe to this for years. The original recipe found on the snopes website is the one I received and follow to a tee. The one given here on allrecipes call for dropping the dough on a spoon. I love rolling it into balls and also grinding the oatmeal into a fine powder. I recently made this recipe and my boss ate 25 of the 36 cookies I made. Delicious!

Creamy Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2007
Excellent pie! The whole crowd at work devoured it and sang praises. I used fresh farm blueberries and made sure to cut out all stems. I also added a hint of Nissley vanilla to the sour cream mixture and some cinnamon in the topping mixture.

Baingan Bharta (Eggplant Curry)

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2007
I liked this recipe since it has a homemade taste as that cooked in my vegetarian Indian's friends home. It taste different and more healthy in that it is less greasy than versions in the restaurant. I did add some ground nutmeg to taste and a splash of lemon juice for the flavors to marinate. I also added a tsp of sugar for more flavor since the tomatoes I used were tart. In addition to the eggplant I also added a roasted pepper. I cooked it at a high temperature and served it over Basmati rice.

Pasta with Scallops, Zucchini, and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2007
This is a pretty good recipe. I have to hands down give my Venetian's friend's scallops a five compared to this one. I agree with reviewers that it needed more flavor. I added some fresh onion to the mix with the garlic and some white wine as suggested.

Fruited Curry Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2007
It needs more curry seasoning for better taste. Instead of 1/2 a tsp, I used 1 1/2 tsp to obtain a tangy taste.

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2007
I thought this dish was too greasy despite adding less olive oil and butter.

Never Fail Pie Crust I

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2007
Flaky, great taste and does not crumble. I used parchment paper with my rolling pin. Butter flavored Crisco gave it an added taste. Loved it.
