Oven-Fried Catfish

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
I loved this dish and this technique. The spices used in the breading were right on, and the fish turned out delicious. The only thing that I did (since I had 2.6 lbs of catfish filets) was add an egg to the skim milk and about 1/2 cup of bread crumbs to the breading. I will keep making this recipe again and again since my husband really loves seafood (and I hate frying fish). A few words of caution, though - after the fish is finished baking, serve it immediately. I let it sit for about 40 minutes in a warm oven (husband was late coming for dinner) and the bottoms became soggy when they were perfectly crisp after just being done. Secondly, my filets were huge (4 filets equaled 2.6 lbs) and I had tons of breading and eggwash left over. Afterwards I realized that cutting the fish into smaller strips/pieces would have solved that problem by creating more surface area for the eggwash and breading and would have made smaller, even crisper pieces of fish!

Sesame Parmesan Zucchini

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2011
Great side dish, although preparing only 1 zucchini is kind of ridiculous...

Soft Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2011
very very very nice recipe. I used margarine in mine (1/2 batch) and didn't chill the batter. Next time might only bake for about 8 minutes to get an even more brownie-like consistency :)

Chocolate Eclair Dessert

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2011
This took me literally 5 minutes to assemble, and the recipe was absolutely on point about how many graham crackers I would end up using (some complained that more were required). I also made the chocolate sauce provided by some of the reviewers, and that sauce deserves a 5 all on its own!!! Yummy!!!

Seafood Salad Supreme

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
I used this recipe as a base for an alternative shrimp pasta salad (I didn't have all the ingredients for my usual critically acclaimed :) salad, so was looking for a different recipe). I omitted the crab, mozzarella and almonds, didn't have Old Bay (subbed paprika, garlic and onion powders, celery seed, salt, pepper), and added 1 chopped cucumber. For the dressing, subbed more than half the mayonnaise with lowfat plain yogurt. Very very good. Although I do want to try with Old Bay sometime :) Thank you for the recipe!

Storybook Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: May 28, 2011
I made these with margarine instead of shortening, but forgot that margarine does not firm up in the fridge very well. Had to freeze the batter in order to be able to even roll it into balls (there was no way I was going to be able to roll it out - it would have needed at least 1/2 cup more flour than that). However, my mistake actually made these SOOOOO SOFT! Delicious flavor (doubled the cinnamon only) without being too spicy. YUMMY

Two Tier Strawberry Pie

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
I made a shortbread crust for this pie, then brushed it with white chocolate which I then cooled. For the filling I used 8 oz cream cheese and 1/4 cup regular sugar. For the sauce/topping, instead of grenadine, i used a red juice i had (happened to be raspberry), added 1 cup fresh strawberry puree, and 1 additional tablespoon cornstarch. This made it even more amazing. Next time I might even add a tsp of plain gelatin to get the sauce/topping to be a little more stable. EXCELLENT pie

Yummy recipe. I don't need the butter, and add less than the full amount of ranch.

Broccoli and Sausage Cavatelli

Reviewed: May 5, 2011
I love this pasta. I bake/grill the sausage ahead of time, then dice it, don't use any oil at all, and add lots more cheese than called for, although I keep to the stated amount of parmesan (I usually add an additional 1 cup something like pepperjack or provolone or cheddar) to make extra cheesy. Then I toss the blanched broccoli, diced sausage, garlic, cheese, and red pepper flakes with the hot pasta (just boiled) and mix thoroughly to melt the cheese (sometimes add a bit of the pasta cooking water to make the cheesy coating lighter). VERY GOOD

I tripled the cream cheese topping a la peanut butter cheesecake, and added 3 eggs. It was delicious!

Banana Oatmeal Cookie

Reviewed: May 5, 2011
I used 1/2 cup margarine and 3 bananas instead of 3/4 cups shortening and 2 bananas. Really good soft cookies with strong banana flavor (and since my bananas were REALLY overripe, I only put in about 1/2 cup sugar).

D's Famous Salsa

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2011
Used regular canned plum tomatoes, 1 fresh jalapeno, and happened to have some homemade marinated jalapenos as well. Everything else according to the recipe, except I didn't have cilantro, so I used parsley (I know it's a sacrilege). Overall very very good even at first taste. Can't wait to see how it is after sitting in the fridge for a while.

Strawberry Cheesecake

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2011
I used a home-made shortbread base for this cheesecake, as well as a pound of fresh strawberries for the swirl, but otherwise followed directions. Very good cheesecake, and beating the creamcheese with the condensed milk gives the mixture a surprising amount of volume...

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2011
Beautiful Recipe. I made mine with summer squash, and grated it finely - the batter didn't turn out dry at all. Don't know if that was due to the summer squash or the fact that more juices are released when grating finely. Other than that I made no changes, except that I frosted with a peanut butter glaze/frosting (3 heaping tbsp peanut butter, 6 tbsp water, 2/3 cup powdered sugar).

Really is the most moist - and of course you must mash the bananas

Blueberry Coffee Cake I

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2011
As I was mixing the batter, my husband and son stole my fresh blueberries. I didn't have the heart to take it back from them since fresh are better for you than cooked (and it's winter out), so I improvised and chopped up 2 granny smith apples and added a bit of cinnamon to the batter. VERY good cake, even without the crumble on top! UPDATE July4,2011 - I had made this cake several times before now, but had forgotten whether I followed the original directions the previous times, or whether I had increased the milk to 3/4 cup as suggested by most reviewers. I decided to wing it and increase the milk. Well, that made it clear to me that the previous times I followed the original directions, which provided a more dense and rich cake, which is what a crumb/coffee cake should be like (in my opinion). While the lighter/fluffier texture is still delicious, it is more like a cake. Delicious either way, but when making the crumb, I will make sure to use the 1/2 cup milk, and when omitting it, I will make sure to increase the milk for a lighter and more cakey consistency.

Best Brownies

Wonderful Recipe! I doubled the ingredients (except the egg and salt, as suggested by another reviewer), and baked for 5 minutes in a 9by13 pan. Excellent, dense, sweet, and chewy brownies!
