Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2011
The perfect icing for cut out cookies! Thanks JBS! Beautiful finish and easy to work with. I like a thin dipping glaze, so increased the milk and corn syrup to about a TBS plus 1 tsp each. Substituted lemon extract for the almond and added 2 packets of Tru-Lemon crystals. HEAVEN over lemon cookies (any basic cut out cookie recipe) but add zest from 2 lemons, lemon extract instead of vanilla, and 4 packets of Tru-Lemon crystals to the dough. Left-over icing was great over a loaf of banana bread.

LJ's Easy Penne with Vodka Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2010
Mercy this is good! Wish we could rate with more than 5 stars!! Like a previous reviewer, add a bit of sugar. Tweak it a little everytime I make it (which is often - especially good on gnocchi!) Made a chunky version by adding 1/2 chopped green pepper and using petite diced tomatoes instead of crushed. Cooked the tomatoes and other veggies, then stirred in the vodka in the last 5 minutes, then stirring in fat free half and half at the last minute just til it's heated through. Cut the calories, but same taste and texture as the cream. Can't wait til summer to try it with fresh tomatoes! Thanks for a fabulous recipe!!

Old-Fashioned Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
First time I ever made fudge and it was perfect! Took about 16 minutes to reach 238 degrees. Used a hand mixer on low for the beating (about 4 minutes til it started thickening) and tossed in 1/2 cup toasted black walnuts right before turning out. Firm with a creamy texture. Fabulous recipe! Thanks!!

Grilled Greek-Style Zucchini

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
This is good stuff! Second time I made it, I substituted feta cheese for the parmagian cheese. Betty's recipe is a weekly favorite - Thanks!!

Irish Boxty

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
Crisp on the outside. Tender on the inside. MMMMM! To make these up faster for a brunch, I par-poiled the shredded potatoes for 3 minutes in a big pot of water, then drained well before mixing with the rest of the ingredients. This way, I could cook them for a shorter time at a higher temp, so they were even crispier. You have to dry this recipe for your next brunch!

Rico's Passionate Pink Honey Lemonade

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2008
Made a triple vat of this for a cook out -then had to make more! Had about a quart left, so I put it in the ice cream maker to make a sorbet. Served with a simple sugar cookie and it made a dessert my family raved over. Thanks, Rico!

Cashew Raisin Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
This is a wonderfully versatile recipe! Make it often enough that I've been playing with ingredients. Favorite modification so far: Left out the carrots. Added a chopped jalapeno and 3 garlic cloves. Also added 1/2 tsp tumeric and 1/2 tsp cumin - and a can of mandarin oranges at the end. Also, toasting the cashews (as recommended in another review) is great. Thanks for sharing this terrific recipe!

Roasted Garlic Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2008
Everyone loves this! Make it often and have experimented a bit. When I'm short on time, par-boil the potatoes for 8 minutes, drain, then follow the recipe. The baking time is cut to 30 minutes. Also have substituted sour cream for the heavy cream. It also travels well to pot-lucks with just a quick "nuke" before serving.

Cool Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2008
Luscious! Perfect side dish for when the temp hits the 90's! I served individual portions in narrow clear-glass cups with a dollop of sour cream and a dill sprig in each and everyone asked for the recipe.
