Sour Cream Pound Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2005
This is excellent! This is what I did to make it come out that way. I added 1 tsp vanilla and 1 tsp almond extract to the batter. I baked it at 350 degrees for 75 minutes. The inside was moist and tender. The outside was crusty and rich. I topped it with whipped cream and sliced, sugared fresh strawberries. It was yummy!

Greek Pasta with Tomatoes and White Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2004
It's excellent but I made LOTS of changes based on other reviews. I chopped tomatoes from a 28-oz can of tomatoes. I used a 15 oz. can of lima butter beans instead of cannellini beans. I sauteed three diced garlic cloves in 2 Tbsp olive oil and began the sauce with that. I addded 1 tsp basil and 1 tsp oregano to the sauce. I doubled the amount of pasta (to 16 oz.) to serve all five people in my family. I crumbled 8 oz. of feta cheese and mixed it with the entire pasta/sauce mixture instead of just putting it on top. I think it's great now.

Easy Pesto

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2003
Wow! Do I like this recipe! It's quick and yummy. Just the thing to do with a handful of fresh basil straight from the farmer's market. I simply toasted slivered almonds on a hot, dry skillet until lightly toasted and fragrant. Forget the oven!

Cranberry Upside-Down Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2004
This cake looks very impressive!!! I give it five stars for its appearance and four stars for its taste. I say just forget about wrapping the springform pan in foil. My foil sprung a leak! It would be much better to slip a foil-lined cookie sheet under the pan itself. Much easier and more foolproof.

Roasted Cauliflower Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007
My husband and I found this recipe extremely good. I did what someone else suggested and cut the salt in half. I wouldn't make any other changes to it. It's perfect the way it is!

Summer Vegetable Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2007
This was great! What I did that was different from the recipe. As someone previously suggested, I cut the ingredients in the salad dressing in half. That amount was perferct for the amoutn of fresh veggies in the salad. I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil...which I usually do in all fresh salads which include tomatoes. I didn't have cherry tomatoes, so I cut up fresh tomatoes to equal once cup. I stirred that dressing really well to incorporate the garlic flavor before I added it to the mixed fresh vegetables. The results were super-yummy!

Corn Fritters

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2002
These are yummy! They're a bit time-consuming and messy to make, but worth the time and trouble, I think!

Sauteed Swiss Chard with Parmesan Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2008
This is a quite nice recipe. It's toothy and delicious. I cut the stems into matchstick size pieces and simmered them for 10 minutes instead of five minutes. I added a can of drained garbanzo beans (as was suggested by someone else) at the same time I added the leaves. This helped round out and make this into a very satifying and tasty dish. Thank you, DannyBoy.

Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2002
I didn't like this recipe at all. Maybe I'm just not a stew eater, but I thought the gravy was too thin and the seasonings weren't hearty enough to bring out the flavor of the meats and vegetables. Celery in stew doesn't thrill me either.

Gingerbread Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2002
Although I was excited by the enticing ingredients, the final results did not find favor with me. The abundance of baking powder caused a volcano-like effct of the batter. Six extra egg yolks remaining after making pancakes seemed like a waste. In addition, two of my three kids said they liked the flavor of other pancakes I make much better. Sorry!

Strawberry Rhubarb Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2008
This is an excellent recipe. Be aware that the batter is thick and sticky. Get enough of it on the bottom of the pan to cover. Then dollop the topp of the filling with the batter and don't worry too much if the top is not covered, but do cover the top very well with the topping - which turns sweet-crunchy! My only remark (and not complaint) is that the coffee cake is so good that it overwhelms the filling - even though I used a quart of freshly sliced strawberries to make the cake. This cake is sure to be a crowd pleaser!

Marzetti® Hawaiian Slaw

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
I used nappa cabbage, fresh pineapple, sliced almonds, and my own slaw dressing for this recipe. It was good but still seemed to be missing something. I'm not sure what. I think it was kind of bland. I'll keep the slaw for myself to eat, but I'm pretty sure my family will not be eating it with me.

Swiss Chard with Garbanzo Beans and Fresh Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2008
I was skeptical of this recipe, but I made it and found it to be very good. In lieu of the garlic clove, I used 1 garlic scape. Instead of the shallot and green onions, I used three spring onions. This dish is really very tasty!

Cornbread Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2009
Excellent recipe; thank you. These pancakes are easy to make and come out delicious. No changes to the recipe are needed. I served ours with maple syrup to my husband and daughter. Not a single pancake was left over!

Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
I loved this soup! I made it for my husband and daughter, and they both agreed that it was great. This is what I added to the soup, though: 1 clove garlic, finely minced (sauteed with the onion), 1 cup corn, 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes, 4 tsp salt, a few twists of freshly ground black pepper. Oh, and I used 12 oz. chopped Polish sausage because I had no Italian sausage. I just sauteed it in 2 Tbsp of olive oil. I did not use any garlic salt.

Fettuccini with Zucchini

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2004
This recipe is tasty, but it needs lots of help. It turns out very bland otherwise. Cook the veggies a bit longer to soften the red/green peppers. While cooking the veggies, add more salt, more cayenne, and some basil and oregano. Add a protein food to it. I added pieces of tuna from the can. When serving, grate fresh Parmesan cheese on top. Then (and only then), it's ready to eat!

Best Ever Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2005
I loved this tuna salad. I've been looking for quite a while for some tricks to make my tuna salad more like those that restaurants serve and less like me just opening a can and adding ingredients at random. This did the trick! I omitted the crab meat (because I don't eat crab) and used dill pickle juice (instead of the relish as I didn't have any). I used freshly grated pepper instead of lemon pepper. It was excellent. I scarfed it down immediately.

Spring Strawberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: May 24, 2010
Love this recipe. So did my hubby. My changes: I changed/cut the vegetable oil to 1/2 cup olive oil and cut the the sugar to 1/4 cup. I added four small strawberries to the dressing and used an immersion blender to blend the dressing. I added 1/2 cup toasted, sliced almonds and a small red onion, thinly sliced, to the salad. I topped it with cubed feta cheese. What can I say? It was perfect! Even hubby liked it, and he usually will not eat fruit that is in something other than a dessert.

Green Cabbage Caldo Verde

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
This is an excellent soup for the chilly days of autumn! Here's what I did a little differently from the original recipe. I used Polish beef sausage instead of chorizo (to make it kosher). I added 1 carrot, chopped into small pieces, plus its carrot greens, finely diced, for color. I used 4 tsp of salt instead of 2 tsp of salt because I like it more heavily seasoned. I used plain paprika instead of smoked paprika only because I didn't have the smoked kind. Thanks for a great recipe!!

Veronica's Apple Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2002
Wow! These were great. Very moist with just the right taste of apples. My kids loved them. I went to eat the leftovers next morning (I made a double batch right from the start), but someone got to them before I did. Must go make some more now...
