Ground Cherry Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2008
I used this recipe for an entirely different berry, but wanted to share it so that others might adapt for thier own needs. I was making individual pineapple upside-down cakes and wanted a cherry sauce to drizzle over them. I used this recipe, substituting black cherries for the ground cherries. I also allowed it to reduced down to a beautiful thick sauce. The black cherries I used were run through the food processor to a nice small chunked size. It was a beautiful presentation and the spices in this recipe were the perfect compliment to the pineapple and sweetness of the cakes. Wonderful!Thank you for giving me a great start to a wonderful sauce.

Tropical Salad with Pineapple Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2008
I was hesitant to try this one, since I am somewhat of a salad traditionalist. We had guests from Hawaii however, so I thought "what the heck". I will never shy away from another unique salad again. Our guests raved as they discovered each taste in the salad. The coconut...the macadamia....mmmm! They even asked us for the recipe. Thank your for sharing this unique...and REALLY delicious salad!

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2008
I cringed when our guests said, "OH, cole slaw....we usually don't like that." Being the polite guests they were, however, they both took small portions and resigned themselves to trying it. It wasn't long before they were up to get more. This was an INCREDIBLY easy recipe that made me wonder if it could really be THAT easy and THAT good. This side will become a staple in my household. My husband ate some leftover slaw for dessert tonight....need I say more?

Savory Green Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2008
This was a great recipe. The pancetta bacon has got such a unique and delicious taste! In the future I think I will use a little broth to cook the beans in for a touch more flavor...but these were a huge hit!

Orange Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2008
Super delicious. Wouldn't change a thing...and that's rare for me. I like to tinker with recipes to make my own creations. This one needs no tinkering :)

Mini Pineapple Upside-Down Cakes

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2008
I just finished serving these, and with the advice of other cooks, made them an incredible sucess. I used the pineapple cake mix and followed the box instructions on it, using water instead of the pineapple juice in the original recipe. I am glad we did this, otherwise it would have been too sweet. I used a whole marischino cherry on the top of each...stem in to create height. I also made a delicious black cherry sauce and drizzled it over them. Absolutely will make these over and over. Too easy and absolutely delicious. I also used the muffin pans instead, making the pineapple slices fit perfectly. Thank you for sharing this! YUM!

Linda's Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2008
My husband stated in horror, "Lasagna with COTTAGE CHEESE...yuck!" I told him to try it and if he didn't like it, he never had to eat it again. One taste and he was hooked! I have made this for guests as well, and they all think I am quite the "gormet italian cook". Thank you so much for this recipe! I proudly tell them where to find it so they can pass it on as well.

Cornish Game Hens with Garlic and Rosemary

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2008
I had never prepared cornish game hens before and wanted to create a dish that had the "wow factor". I did double the sauce recipe as others suggested. This was a huge hit and has instantly become a family favorite. Simple, yet fantastic!
