Chocolate Frosting I

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
very, very good! I used Ghiradelli sweet ground chocolate and was worried that it would be too sweet, but I ended up using the full amount of powdered sugar and it was fantastic...I imagine it might not be sweet enough if using unsweetened cocoa...

Best Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2008
Really quite good...with some critical adjustments. Save yourself time washing extra dishes and throw the frozen peas into the boiling water with the pasta after it has finished cooking. Stir it around a little to thaw them, then drain the whole thing and add it back to the pot, then add in the other ingredients and mix. No reason to dirty a mixing bowl. You absolutely have to add 1 1/2 to 2 cans of milk to loosen up the mixture before baking it (it is, after all, condensed soup that you're working with here and the pasta will soak up a lot of liquid). I added lots more seasoning...mostly garlic powder and fresh ground pepper...and topped with Italian bread crumbs mixed with melted butter. YUM!

Salmon Fillets with Creamy Dill

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2008
WOW! Yummy. I didn't have all of the listed seasonings so I did my own thing (Montreal steak seasoning & Italian seasoning) and it was still fantastic. I also reduced the mayo based on the advice of other reviewers (2/3 cup light mayo & 1/3 cup spicy brown mustard) BUT I almost wished I hadn't as the sauce was delicious and I like lots of sauce anyway. I also squeezed lemon juice over the fillet and cracked some black pepper over it prior to spreading on the sauce. It should be a good amount of sauce IMHO, like frosting a cake. All in all, it was amazingly tasty and a great deal easier than whipping up some Hollandaise sauce. Thanks for the awesome recipe!

Soda Cracker Chocolate Candy

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2007
SOOOO YUMMY! I had to try this recipe- my grandma used to make these and my dad failed miserably at his attempt to recreate them SO, after finding this recipe our problems are solved! A couple things to make your life easier: a 10 x 15 pan is just a regular sized cookie sheet (just make sure it has a rim of course). Also, you don't need to measure out the chocolate chips- 1 1/2 cups is equal to one 12 oz bag. For a more aesthetically pleasing candy, don't add the walnuts until after the chips have been melted and spread out. Sprinkle them on and press them in while they are still warm so that they will look like the picture, OR, go ahead and mix them in (which is what I did) and sprinkle toffee bits on top. Delicious!

After-Thanksgiving Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2007
This is SOOOOO good! So yummy and so unique. I changed it a little bit- I omitted the celery (because I personally hate it), reduced the onions to 2, substituted brown rice medley for the white rice (has barley grains & stuff- similar to a wild rice can get it at TJ's), reduced the salt and pepper a bit so I could add my favorite Montreal steak seasoning, also added a little garlic powder and thawed frozen peas and that's it! One other thing I would suggest...I waited until after everything had simmered and the rice was tender to add the half & half and peas, then I just heated it up (but didn't boil it). I'm not sure how much of a difference it makes, but I never boil the dairy in cream soups. TRY THIS RECIPE! You will not be disappointed. :-)
