Whipped Cream

Reviewed: May 3, 2008
This was perfect!It was also very easy.I used an electric hand mixer(low setting) and it took a few minutes to get to the soft peaks stage.I had to add a 1/2 a tbls more confectioners sugar than the recipe called for because it was not sweet enough.I served it with strawberries.I will surely make this again!!!

Zucchini Souffle

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
Amazingly good! Reading the other reviews, blandness seemed to be a problem, so instead of just adding the onion and zucchini raw ,I sauteed it with garlic. I also added 8 oz. of shredded sharp cheddar cheese to the egg mixture. This tasted perfect. Not bland at all! I will definitely be making this quite often.

Balsamic Bruschetta

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2008
I made this exactly as written except I tripled it(needed to serve 22 people)and it was PERFECT! I served this on Panetini Toast(from Costco). I suggest squeezing most of the liquid out of each tomato before chopping.You don't want to have too much liquid diluting the ingredients and making the bread soggy.

French Toast Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2011
After reading every review I decided to take everyone's advice, so I tweaked this recipe ALOT...and even added my own twist! I cut the eggs down to 4 and the milk down to 2 cups. I added 1 tsp. cinnamon powder and 1/4 tsp. nutmeg. I also cut the vanilla extract down to 1 tsp. but added in 1/2 tsp. almond extract. I also added 1/4 cup of brown sugar. I let the casserole sit overnight in the fridge before baking it for 50 minutes. I also topped it with sauteed apples, with cinnamon and chopped walnuts, after it was baked! With all these changes, it was VERY good! I would definitely make this again!

Roasted Spicy Garbanzo Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
This is 5 stars if you let the beans bake til hard and crunchy! This will take over an hour. Check them every 20 minutes and shake the tray to let them dry evenly. I seasoned mine to suit my own taste. I coated the beans with the olive oil then sprinkled them with seasoned salt, garlic powder, onion powder, a pinch of cayenne pepper and about 1/2 tsp. of smoked paprika. With these seasonings and baking them til they were hard and crunchy, made this taste like you were eating crispy fried chicken skin! So good!

Wine Cookies (Original Italian)

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2008
This is a very good Italian cookie. I thought it wouldn't be sweet enough because there isn't much sugar in the recipe, but it did have a nice sweetness to it. I used a Chianti wine (very dry) and I rolled the cookies in turbinado (raw) sugar instead of granulated sugar. My cookies were slightly purple before cooking. Then they turned a nice golden brown while they were baking. The taste reminds me of a really good sweet bread. This is a very unique cookie and I'm glad I tried it!

Maryland Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2008
This was very good! Okay...I didn't have any Old Bay Seasoning, so I used seasoned salt instead. I loved it!!! Never thought to use anything but plain old salt. Now I'll have to try other pumpkin seed recipes. Maybe I'll use smoked paprika next time! Also...I didn't need to use any oil because I lined a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Worked great!

Easy Chili II

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
Instead of chili beans I used kidney beans. I had to add the following ingredients to give the chili more flavor. Salt, cumin, cilantro, chili powder, bay leaf, garlic and some dry red wine. This helped to make it a delicious mild type of chili. I served it over polenta with shredded sharp cheddar cheese.

Ground Beef Mexican Style

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2008
This was extremely good! I did make a lot of changes to suit my taste. I added 1 very large clove of garlic (minced), to the ground beef, when I browned it. I used 90% lean meat. I also added 1/2 tsp. salt, 1 Tbls. chili powder and 1/2 tsp. ground cumin. I also added 1 small can of mild chopped green chilies. I didn't drain the meat after browning and I omitted the water. I served it over egg noodles with sour cream and shredded muenster cheese. If you love beef stroganoff and if you love chili...you'll love this dish, because it tastes like chili stroganoff!

Michael's Foccacia Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2008
This would of been great if it wasn't ruined by too much salt in the topping! I did as the recipe states and added 1 tablespoon of salt sprinkled ontop, along with olive oil and parmesan cheese.This totally ruined the bread because it was way too salty! Other than that, it is a good recipe. Very easy. I omitted the onion and used garlic powder. I baked it on parchment paper instead of an oiled sheet, much easier clean up that way. I will try this again, but will use 1 teaspoon of salt ontop next time. UPDATE-- I made this again and used about 1 tsp of salt in the topping instead of 1 Tbls. Much better! I will be making this quite often!

Strufoli III

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2008
This is basically the same recipe thats been in our family for generations...except we add 2 tbls. shortening, 1 tsp. vanilla extract, 2 tsp. baking powder and 2 tsp. whiskey when making the dough. Instead of forming the dough into balls we roll out the dough and cut it into thin strips. You can fry this or even bake it. Both ways are just as good! We coat it with honey and sprinkle with non pareils. We always make these for Christmas!

Corn on the Grill

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
I made this tonight and it was PERFECT! It is tender, smokey, sweet and spicy...very much a Tex Mex flavor, which I love! I tweaked it similar to what Jill did by soaking the corn and grilling it with the husks! Instead of using the seasoned butter on the corn AFTER it was cooked, I peeled back the husks and brushed it on and then I relpaced the husks and grilled on low flame for 30 minutes...turning constantly! The husks will flame up while grilling, but thats what gives the corn that great smokey flavor! I didn't use the lime juice because I didn't have any. I will use this recipe for grilled corn from now on!

Aunt Anne's Sesame Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2008
These cookies were perfect!!! I made them exactly as written except I used half the butter. I agree with Marcelle2...this recipe only made 40 cookies. Also, you don't have to dip the dough in milk to get the sesame seeds to stick. I did it with and without. The only difference is that the dough gets more heavily coated when dipped in the milk first, but its so much more of a mess! The photo shown is without dipping them in milk. You can see they have plenty of sesame seeds on them. This is a great recipe that I will pass down to my daughters!

Tangy Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
This was extremely good! I used an English cucumber, so I skipped the step for salting it and letting it sit before rinsing. It didn't need that because it was not bitter. The only changes I made was to use roasted red peppers instead of tomatoes and I also added black olives.I made the dressing exactly as written and it was perfect! I love the slight sweetness of the dressing in combination with the cucumbers. I will be making this quite often!

Cucumber Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2008
This was extremely good! I used an English cucumber. I didn't have grapes, so I used cranraisins. Instead of a tart apple I used a Macintosh. This was a very fresh and tasty salad. I loved the contrast of the tart sour cream and sweetness of the cranraisins and apples. I also loved the freshness of the cucumbers and the parsley. All these different flavors just dance on your tongue! This is a very impressive salad!

Crab Stuffed Lobster Rayna

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
Delish stuffing! I didn't grill it, I baked it at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.I'll probably use this stuffing in other dishes like...stuffed shrimp, mushrooms and in puffed pastry as an appy.Sooo good!!!

I had to tweek it to make it healthier.Instead of canned fried onions,I used thin sliced fresh onions(1 large yellow).Instead of jarred processed cheese,I used shredded cheddar.Since I wasn't using all the processed ingredients,I added salt + pepper to taste. I also added parsley for color.I will definitely be making this again.

Daddy Charles's Spooley

Reviewed: May 7, 2009
This is very good! It tastes like a really good sangria! I made this by the glass using 2oz. Rum, 2oz. dry red wine, 4oz. red fruit punch, 3 oz. club soda, 1/2 tsp. fresh lime juice, 1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice...and I served it in a wine glass instead of a "red plastic cup"! After drinking a couple of these you will feel "loopey"...as we call it! It really does sneak up on you, so be careful!
