This was excellent. Moist and buttery. It was finished by my family in no time. Everyone loved. Definitely a keeper.

Coconut Ambrosia Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2010
I've been making this for years. Also tastes great with a container of pina colada or pineapple yogurt in place of the milk. Adds a bit of tangy smoothie flavor.

Chicken and Broccoli Braid

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2006
My family loved this recipe. I followed it exactly, except for the dill and the dough directons. I reduced the amount to 1/2 tsp. I like dill, but not love it! And for the braid, I cut the strips AFTER I placed the chicen on the dough, not before, as directed in the recipe. See my photo with the recipe too!

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2001
Excellent! You really have gotta make these. Couldn't be easier. You could even add nut/raisins in the brown sugar filling. The icing is the best. I've never had a real "cinnabon" but I can't see how it could even compare!! Very easy, my kids helped rolling, cutting and eating.

Ramen Coleslaw

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2001
My kids did not care for it. I would try again using broccoli-slaw, but my supermarket didn't carry it this week. I think the noodles taste better if they sit overnight--more flavor and less crunch. I rated it high on taste and verrry easy to make, however.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
Great Bread! This would be great with chocolate chips. The reviews are correct; it gets better with age, although it won't stick around too long :)

Moussaka

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2008
This was great. Use lamb instead of beef for more authentic flavor. I doubled the spices, including the garlic, and baked, instead of fried, the eggplant, as other reviewers suggested. Makes a lot of bechamel sauce, OK with me.

Peppered Bacon and Tomato Linguine

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2002
Fantastic combination of flavors. If you don't have pepper bacon, regular would also work. Everyone in my family enjoyed this easy and delicious pasta recipe.

Chocolate Brittle Surprise

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2002
Had these for tea at a nearby bed and breakfast. Don't make the mistake I made, added one pound instead of one cup of butter. You only need two sticks. A little bit goes a long way.

White Chili I

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2003
Very good. Would probably add a bit more chicken broth next time, I like my chili more liquidy. Otherwise would make again, possibly adding fresh cilantro.

Irish Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2010
Used bone-in breasts and baby carrots as a substitute. Recipe doesn't state to peel the potatoes, I think I would prefer this. My son doesn't like peas, so left them out. Also, to save time I used store bought refrigerated biscuits with similar/same result.

Naan

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2007
Overall very good. I added the garlic to the melted butter and brushed on the bread. Everyone loved them, including the kids who asked for them again soon. They reminded me of Navajo frybread that I served with jelly. I would recommend making the golf ball sized dough balls a bit larger and then cutting the cooked bread with a pizza wheel into triangles, (Like they do at the Indian restaurant). Mine didn't get as puffy as the photo.

Margarita Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2006
Very good pie, similar to key lime but with a salty pretzel crust and fluffier filling due to the cool whip. I like the idea of freezing it like another reviewer suggested--Good Idea I will have to try this! Kids loved it without the tequila.

Irish Cream Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
My family polished this off in two days flat. I thought the Irish Cream flavor was weak, I prefer the Rum Cake recipe made with rum instead.

Enchiladas Suizas

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2007
This recipe was a good starting point. I added green peppers because I didn't have any chopped chile peppers. I also had leftover shrimp and scallops, so I made two batches, one with chicken and one with the seafood. I put them in two casseroles. I found they were a bit dry, and I like my enchiladas juicy, so I mixed one can of Campbell's mexican cooking soup with a cup of half and half and poured it over top, then sprinkled with cheese. They turned out great!!!

Cherry Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2002
These were very healthy and delicious. Butter lettuce would have worked better. I added extra garlic and cayenne pepper for more kick! Leftovers kept well in refrigerator.

Cream Cheese Penguins

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2006
Very high cute factor here! I made them for my son's school project. Half ate, half didn't. They were a bit time consuming, but perfect for his penguin themed book report.
