Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
I used a 3 day old french baguette that I hadn't gotten to - it worked great and made for a very pretty finished product. I used extra bread and a deeper dish, so I upped the eggs to 6, and added an extra 1/2 cup of skim milk. It came out perfect. I wouldn't change a thing with this recipe. Don't be afraid to use stale/very dry bread - it turns out great!

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
I used blue cheese since I don't think ranch is appropriate with buffalo chicken. I also followed the advice of getting a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken and it was a fantastic time and money saver (deli cooked whole chicken was $3.99, same whole uncooked chicken was around $7.00). I shredded the chicken and combined all ingredients on the stovetop until well blended and bubbling. I transferred it into a 9X9 glass dish and baked for 30 minutes. It was perfect!

Lemonade Pie III

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2009
Always a summer favorite - no need to change a thing. This time I used mini graham pie shells... made for individual servings.

Italian Wedding Cookies III

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
These turned out ok. They tasted good, but were very delicate and kept crumbling in your hand if you picked them up too hard. I made them for a party and kept finding spots around my house that I could tell people were too rough with their little cookies... I've used better recipes for this type of cookie.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
Made this for a party as the main dish - everyone loved it and commented on it. I used zesty sauce to give it a little more flavor. Easy to make, and it makes a lot. A definite keeper.

Party Punch IX

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
Made enough for one huge bowl of virgin punch and one huge bowl of champagne punch. Everyone loves it and I am always asked for the recipe!

Mini Cheesecakes

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
Made these for a party... the vanilla wafer idea was awful and didn't work, so we switched to standard graham cracker crumbs. Cheesecakes came out good after that. The recipe should tell you that the only way to use Vanilla wafers is to crush them... they don't fit into a mini-muffin tin.

Barbie Doll Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2008
It came out OK, foolowed the directions with the 2 qt bowl and the skirt was not big enough for a real Barbie, so I had to use a fake 'cake-doll' with no legs. The cake was still a hit though. Next time I will use an actual doll cake pan.

Poke Cake III

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2008
I made this for our 4th of July cookout, and it received rave reviews. It was my first Poke Cake, and it was fantastic. great recipe, easy to do. I used maraschino cherries and bluberries to create a flag cake, sticking with the holiday theme. I also used cherry Jell-o to match the cherry pie filling. I think you could probably use any flavor Jell-o and fruit topping and it would be just as good! A nice change from a traditional cake with buttercream frosting - great summer recipe.

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
My Aunt in California made this soup for my father & I when we visited. You cannot go wrong with this recipe! It was fantastic as our Christmas Eve dinner. Use some sourdough bread for dipping and you have a meal to remember. I didn't (and wouldn't) change a thing. A definite keeper - and healthy too!

To Die For Fettuccine Alfredo

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2007
Everyone loved it, even though I forgot the garlic. It was a big hit and oh so easy to make. Even my 5 yr old picky eater loved it - that alone speaks volumes.

German Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2007
This was exactly what I had hoped for; a dense, moist apple cake. I followed the recipe almost exactly. Instead of Cinnamon, I used 'Pumpkin Pie Spice'. Next time I might do 3 tsps instead of just 2 because I couldn't taste the spices too much. It was still fantastic and it went very quickly in my house!

Tuna Noodle Casserole II

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2007
A simple, quick, fantastic recipe. I tweaked it to my family's taste; hubby loves peas (and I grew up with them in my tuna casserole) so I added a bag of frozen baby peas. I used egg noodles instead of shells simply because it's what I grew up on so I prefer it. We don't care for mushrooms, so I used 2 cans of cream of celery. I also didn't have the garlic, so I omitted it. I followed another reviewers advice and didn't use the extra pot, just added the stuff to the egg noodles and it was fine. It turned out great! My hubby had 2 big plates of it (so did I) and then my dad and brother took the leftovers home with them. My dad later told me that he loved it. We all thought the potato chips on top were a great touch. Thanks for a great recipe!!! I'll make it again and again!

October Apple Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2007
I have made a lot of apple pies, one that even took the top prize in a pie contest; this pie, however, beats even my best previous attempts. It was quickly gobbled up by my entire family (and I picked at it in the middle of the night!) My mom commented on how it was nice because it was sweeter than your average apple pie. I followed the recipe, only I don't measure things exactly, I guesstimated - and it was perfect. I used MacIntosh apples which produce a bit more juice than some others, but they have the best flavor. Also, instead of using separate spices I just used 2 tsps of Pumpkin Pie spice, and it was perfect. Great fall pie!
