Indian Stir-Fried Shrimp in Cream Sauce (Bhagari Jhinga)

Reviewed: May 24, 2007
I made this with chicken breasts instead of shrimp and served it over couscous. It was very tasty!

Amish Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2008
Best macaroni salad recipe I've found. I omitted the celery (I find it bleeds and makes salads watery) and I used sweet relish. I also cut the sugar down to 1/4 cup. I'd say start with 1/4 and taste for sweetness. You can always add more.

Apple, Carrot, Or Zucchini Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2008
Excellent recipe, and I like it has half the oil of most recipes. My favorite mix is half carrot, half zucchini. The only warning is you'd best paper the pan if you're wanting to unmold it. It stuck badly to my pans, when I rarely have that trouble with other recipes.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2008
Excellent idea and I like how easy it is to bring a change to my usual lasagna recipe. I used cottage cheese instead of sour cream and provolone. Cooked and sliced italian sweet sausage instead of beef. And I used penne because I didn't have any ziti on hand. Came out beautifully, and there is TONS of leftovers, so I'll be freezing some for another day when I can't be bothered to do more than use the microwave.

Delicious Barbeque Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
Excellent sauce. I did do a couple changes. I used honey instead of molasses, reduced the oil by half, and I cooked it down for several minutes so it thickened and the sugar dissolved. It was amazing on oven roasted chicken drumsticks.

Butterscotch Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
Very tasty and a nice change from the raisin bread pudding. Like other reviewers, I did reduce the sugar by half - it is plenty sweet with the butterscotch chips involved.

Cathy's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2009
Very moist, tender recipe. I use yogurt instead of sour cream, and cut the sugar to 1 cup. Tossing in a half cup of chopped walnuts was a very nice addition as well.

Tartar Sauce I

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
This is so easy to make and superior to the stuff bought at the store. Very glad to have found this recipe! I made a half batch the second time since it doesn't keep for long, and kept the relish at 1 level tablespoon. I usually make this in the morning, so it's nicely blended by the time dinner rolls around.

Homemade Refrigerator Pickles

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
Didn't change a thing and they turned out excellent! Crisp and sweet. I waited three days to eat any to ensure the pickling had a chance to do its thing. Just about to make another batch with more of the cucumbers coming out of the garden.

Asian Tuna Patties

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
I was skeptical, but my mother really wanted to try this recipe. Glad she did! It's excellent. Really tasty too if you substitute sesame seeds for the cornmeal at the end. Tastes very good with plum sauce.

Corn Dogs

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
Excellent recipe. Works perfectly! The only thing I'd do differently next time is make a double batch of the batter. I hate having to fight to coat the last dogs smoothly and any leftover batter can just be dropped by spoonfuls into the oil to make a kind of hush puppy. Also, it's excellent made with honey instead of sugar. My brother will not eat refined sugar so it works nicely.

Cottage Cheese Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2011
Not to my taste. Very eggy, almost like when you leave french toast soaking too long in the egg mixture and it barely holds together. I think if you're wanting something like an easy cheese blintz, this is your recipe. If you're wanting something more like a traditional pancake, you'll find it too wet and heavy. Depending on your tastes you may find this recipe worth more than 3 stars. Like other reviewers have suggested, I pureed the cheese so there wasn't any lumps. Regardless of your tastes, I think it's an important step.

Bacon and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
Really good soup, but doesn't need the cheese. That was overkill. Tastes excellent without. Instead of cayenne I used chipotle, which added an extra smokiness.

Chicken Marmalade

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2012
Very nice recipe! I did make small modifications. I made sure the onions were well caramelized. "Tender" just isn't enough for me, and caramelizing brings out the natural sweetness. I used some homemade meyer lemon marmalade instead of the orange, black pepper instead of lemon pepper and I used a tsp of roasted garlic instead of the powder. It was wonderful. I think this recipe would work well with any kind of sweet marmalade. I'm tempted to also try it with raspberry jam or black currant. It's one of those simple recipes you can play around with and still make something good.

Orange Marmalade Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2012
These are almost a cake cookie and it's key to keep them small so they cook fully. I started too big and at that high temperature the outsides would start to get too dark before the insides finished cooking. Very tasty. I used a lemon marmalade instead of the orange, and I added a tsp of culinary lemon oil to punch up the flavor. (You could use extract or zest to the same effect.) In my version I used lemon juice in the icing and it made a wonderful tangy-sweet icing.

Miniature Chocolate Eclairs

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2013
This recipe is excellent except for two things. One, it's worth making a pudding better than your average box mix and definitely NOT an instant mix - instant is too soft and will break. The second is that these are not "mini". They're huge. To make mini, I dropped teaspoon scoops of dough and reduced the two baking times to 30min/5min. They came out beautifully.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2013
The first time I tried it, I used butter, after looking at some of the reviews. I should've obeyed the recipe, because when I went back to shortening they were light, fluffy and excellent! While I prefer using butter, shortening is the way to go here. And kneading is more like folding the dough on the board.

Boston Baked Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2013
Excellent. I used some fresh end-of-season pole beans I had left over from the garden that had matured too much to eat in the pod. (No need for soaking fresh beans. I did increase the amount of fresh beans to account for moisture difference between fresh and dried beans.) Like another reviewer, I cooked these in my crockpot for convenience and they turned out excellent. I don't think I'll be buying canned baked beans any more.

Pumpkin Gingerbread

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2013
My neighbor gave me a loaf of excellent gingerbread and when I asked her for the recipe, she pointed me here. Such a tender loaf. I used to think gingerbread loaves were awful, but clearly I hadn't tried a good one until now.

Quick Gnocchi

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2013
Very quick and convenient recipe. I hold back about 1/4 cup of flour per batch for dusting my rolling surface. It keeps the gnocchi from getting too floury and dense. What's also great is I can cut up any uncooked leftovers, put them on a parchment paper covered tray spaced so they don't touch, and freeze them for cooking another time. It makes the next time all that much faster. Cooks up beautifully from frozen.
