Honey Wheat Bread I

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
Used olive oil instead of shortening. Did not add additional water. It was easy to make with a stand mixer. One question: when it says add "small pan of water"...how small and how much water? Anyone know?

Jenni's Turkey and Dressing Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
This was a hit at our post-Santa Bus potluck last night. After reading previous reviews I decided to tweak it a bit: 1) I added some poultry seasoning for more depth. 2) I used two packages of powdered turkey gravy blended with water (jarred gravy is e-x-p-e-n-s-i-v-e. It thickened up just fine. 3) I made and cooked the base the night before, reheated it on the stove while I made the stuffing. The base seemed a bit dry I added more water. 4) Since I used a cast iron Dutch oven, I put the whole shebang in the oven. ONE IMPORTANT NOTE: There's no way this recipe serves four unless they're starving athletes. It served eight people just fine. I plan on trying this recipe again with real Thanksgiving leftovers; especially the gravy. The stuffing mix with soup and cheese was amazing! Thanks, Jenni :o)

(not my) Grammy's Clam Fritters

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2011
These were delicious...where's the optional sixth star? The recipe says it serves 12 but I doubled the batch and four of us ate every last fritter. Please note: When it says "batter" it's more like a dough. I thought perhaps I'd misread the ingredients when I doubled the recipe. Then I wondered if the clams were supposed to be with their juice (canned). Regardless, I stirred in as much flour as I could and dumped the rest (next time I might use a bit less). My husband's a real clam snob (coming from the razor clam capital of "the world"). I used fresh, diced horse clams which are at the very bottom of the clam-eating world. He raved about the fritters. Who knew!? Hence a sixth star!

Tater Tot Casserole III

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
Probably fattening but it's great comfort food. My children loved it. Let's face it, I've had the recipe in my file for almost 10 years! I guess that makes it a keeper.

Quick Chili I

Muh. Easy but missing the depth of flavor associated with chili.

This recipe is made by my students every year. Lots of fun, and guaranteed to make the birdies sing.

Double Chocolate Pancakes

OMG...that about sums it up. These are worth the time and effort. Rich? Yup. Fattening? Yup. Delicious? Absolutely.

Puttanesca I

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2011
I haven't a clue why the "one inch of anchovy paste" turned out looking so weird. But that's what it's supposed to say. I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. It was perfect for a weeknight meal...even on a Monday night!

Rum-Spiked Horchata

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
I had good intentions to follow the directions to a tee. That didn't happen. I only had pearl rice; worked fine. After grinding it with an immersion blender, let it sit in the fridge all day. Had no sweetened condensed milk so I used evaporated milk and 3/4 cup vanilla bean sugar (one vanilla bean split into 5# sugar...had been sitting there since Christmas). Long story short; it was amazing.

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
I followed the directions exactly. The butter/mustard/honey sauce was okay. However the pecan/breadcrumb topping was crispy on top and soggy underneath. It was like eating bready mush. Not a palate-pleaser. I recommend one of the many other simple recipes that highlight salmon's delicate taste. This suffocated it.

Scalloped Corn

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
This stuff is addictive! I followed the suggestions of other reviewers...1. I drained the corn. 2. I did not add the sugar. 3. I added 1 cup shredded cheddar and 4. I added 2 cups chopped ham. The recipe says "serves 12". Fat chance of that! It barely served 4 :)

Crispy Rosemary Chicken and Fries

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2008
Thanks to previous readers' suggestions, this recipe turned out very good. Not crispy but still very tasty. First, I used boneless/skinless thighs. They weren't even totally thawed but that didn't seem to make a difference. I put the oil, rosemary (much more than called for), oregano and a big spoonful of chopped garlic in my Magic Bullet blender. I followed the rest of the recipe from there on out. It cooked in about 45 minutes.

Louisiana Shrimp Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2006
I read all the reviews (especially the negative ones). With that in mind, I made some adjustments: The rice was cooked with vegie broth. The shrimp were sauted with butter. I added a splash of dry sherry and some lemon juice too. I used cheddar cheese soup for the shrimp soup and mixed in about a cup of grated cheddar cheese AND topped it with more cheddar. It turned out great! Oh yes, and I used lots of large shrimp rather than the small ones.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2006
This is a delicious recipe that even my fish-hating teenager gobbled down. I baked rather than broiled. Came out wonderfully. Thank you for the great recipe! P.S. Love your name!

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2005
Truly delicious. I skipped the corn syrup, used a zippier mustard, and used precooked real bacon bits. It was a hit with the family and now we make it at least once a week.

Dump Cake V

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2003
I started out and realized I had no cherry pie filling so I substituted a jar of mincemeat. I reduced the butter to 3/4 c. and covered the cake with foil the first 40 minutes to help reduce the dry lump problems I'd read about. Then I uncovered it and finished the baking. It was a hit!

Mexican Baked Fish

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2003
I too am not a measurer. I spread salsa across the fish and sprinkled them heavily with cheese. I also used a spicy corn chip which added to the flavor. My fish-hating daughter loved it. One note: If you use frozen fish, make sure to press out the excess water otherwise you'll have a swimming pool of water in the dish.
