Lemon Sauce for Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2008
This was gross. It tasted like flour with a hint of lemon. It was too thick, so I added a 1/4 cup more milk - still this didn't help. I should have heeded the 4 Tablespoons of flour as a warning, because I use 6 Tablespoons of flour when I make my cream of brocolli soup. Sorry for the bad rating, but this isn't a good recipe.

Strawberry/Rhubarb Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2007
I would have given it a five star for flavor alone! On my second attempt I omitted the egg and cut the sugar to 3/4 cup. I didn't have a runny pie on the second attempt. If you cut the butter for the crumb topping back to six (6) tablespoons you won't notice a difference in texture or taste, so save the fat and the calories and cut it back. Great recipe! Thanks for sharing!

Tiramisu Toffee Dessert

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2007
perhaps you didn't whip the whipping cream until it formed. Whipping cream needs to have air whipped into it and it will stiffen the rest of the ingredients. Try this again - I think you'll like it!

Banana Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2006
I took the advice of others and used unsweetened applesauce in lieu of the butter - outstanding results! This recipe has walnuts listed in the directions, but not on the ingredient list - I used 3/4 cup, chopped. I also just used PAM spray and omitted the use of the paper liners. I highly recommend this recipe, it has a lot of flavor and a light fluffy texture.

Spicy Orange Beef

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2004
This is an excellent and easy recipe. Instead of omitting the orange peel, just cut two 1/2 inch slices the length of the orange, you will be able to remove them later - I think they are necessary to get the full flavor of the orange, the marmalade isn't enough.

Best Zucchini Appetizer

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2004
We loved it! I used the reduce fat Bisquick baking mix. I cut the oil back to 1/3 cup. I also added two large garlic cloves, finely chopped. This is a great recipe to take as pot-luck dish. When I made this a second time I split the batter up and put bacon in half, and lighly sauted mushrooms in the other - but I baked it in the same dish (1/2 and 1/2). This is a no fail recipe. I tried to cut the oil back to 1/4 cup, but it turned out to be too dry - the 1/3 cup is best. I would also add a 1/2 tsp. of dried basil or oregano, for variation. This is a winner.

Tapenade

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2003
This is a great recipe, however, it was to puree'd by the time you get the oil added in. The second time I made this I used my food processor and added the garlic, olives, anchovies and capers and omitted the rest of the ingredients (thyme, rosemary, lemon juice and oil) and we liked it a lot more. It was more of the original italian tapenade without being overwhelmed with the herbs and lemon juice. Being able to omit the oil was a bonus! If you like it thin then Jim's recipe is ideal for mixing with hot pasta!

Mock Champagne

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2003
This was an ideal drink for my party of drinkers and non-drinkers. I put a strawberry in the bottom of the champagne flute. I love champagne, but I also loved this, so I drank this until my guest left and then I indulged in the real thing!

Date and Nut Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2003
Finally a date bar that is moist and holds together. I shared these bars with my neighbor and she loved them as much as my husband did! I did increase the cinnamon to 1/4 teaspoon. I didn't use the confectioners' sugar, once we tried them without we decided they were perfect the way they were. Great recipe!

Chili-Rubbed Chicken with Chipotle Pineapple Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2003
I've made this recipe a couple of times and have had great results with it. I've made it for a dinner party with my neighbors and got compliments from everyone about it. The combination of flavors is perfect. The second time of making the salsa I used the mid-sized can of crushed pineapple (drained), omitted the lime juice and added some of the pineapple juice, and I increased the cilantro to two heaping tablespoons of cilantro. I highly recommend setting the chicken up in the morning. I didn't use the 1/2 cup of olive oil, as recommended. I only used 1/4 cup for six large chicken breast (skinless/boneless) and it was plenty.

Never Fail Biscuits

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2003
These are nice and light biscuits. I used 1-cup of buttermilk in place of the 3/4-cup Milk and they were delicios! "Never Fail" stands up to its promise! I recommend using these for berry shortcakes or topped with a peach and some juice, with a dollop of whipped cream. This is a keeper!

Fabulously Sweet Pear Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2003
This is one of the best cakes I've ever made. I did modify it a little, though. I omitted the nuts, because I wanted to share this with my neighbor and she hates nuts. I cut the pears like I would my apples for apple pie, and I didn't puree them, which was ideal for this cake. You can cut back on the oil by 1/4 cup and it will remain moist. I will continue cutting back on the oil 1/4 cup at a time until I get to a point where I know I need to stop. I did this with my cousin's zucchini bread recipe and I was able to cut it from 1-cup to 1/3 cups. By reducing the oil you can reduce the fat content in this recipe. Also, use "ripe" pears, ones where the skin has started to go from green to yellow. If the pears aren't "ripe" you won't get the full flavor of this deliciously moist cake.

Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2003
We loved this moist gingerbread. I put it in a loaf pan, which worked out great. A creamcheese with orange peel frosting tops this well. Especially when you're sharing it with the office! They raved about it! I added 2 tsp. of ginger, but kept everything else as Charles submitted it. It has a lot of flavor and the texture was light and moist. Great with a rich cup of coffee!

Todd's Famous Blueberry Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2001
This is well worth the wait. I forgot to put in the melted butter and this recipe came out light and fluffy. I've made this recipe four times and it is consistent in every way. I've used fresh and frozen blueberries and there is no difference. Thanks, Todd!

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2001
I made this the first time for my husband and he loved it! The second time I made this for a church pot-luck and they raved about it. I used a 7 ounce can of the chopped green chiles and about 1 cup more cheese. This is a simple and quick dish, bursting with flavor! This is well worth keeping in your recipe box for quick meals ideals!
