Butter Crescents

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2007
While I loved the texture and denseness of these rolls, my hub and kids were disappointed with the lack of flavor...we're all used to eating Pan de Sal rolls or King's Hawaiian bread though so maybe I'll try again just adding some sugar to the mix. Like all homemade bread recipes, these are a bit of work, a real labor or love!!

Irish Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2005
i wanted to make something that made us all feel warm & fuzzy on new year's eve (it was our first rain here in san diego!) so this was it...i made the mistake of using a can of cream of mushroom along with the cream of chicken, it tasted totally off so i added 3 chicken bouillon cubes and it turned out perfect...the only other changes i made were adding some garlic salt, some butter to make the sauce a little more luxurious, a little lawry's seasoned salt and used a can of chicken broth in place of one of the cups of water. i used bisquick for the dumplings (the stew was so tasty the plain dumplings were perfect as they didn't compete with it and instead soaked it up as they were cooking). we all loved this and i will definitely make again, adding some mushrooms and leaving out the peas as my kids just picked them all out anyway. definitely 5 stars!!!!!

Basic Ham and Bean Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2003
I don't know what I did wrong but this was so, so bland...the seasonings were the right ones but i had to triple the amounts and then add some liquid smoke. the final result was really good, i will probably make again with same adjustments.

Chocolate Cavity Maker Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2003
oh. my. God. this was - by far - the BEST chocolate cake i have ever had in my life. i was a little wary of the kahlua (had a wicked bad 'white russian' experience in my youth) but it is imperative to the taste in this cake. i greased & "floured" using hershey's cocoa and dusted the finished product with a tiny bit of powdered sugar before serving and it didn't even need that though it looked really pretty. plus very easy to make...definitely a keeper & will make every xmas from now on. thank you SO much for sharing!!!!!

Linguine with Scampi

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2003
AWESOME! I made this last night to accompany broiled salmon and a simple salad for my date, we both positively loved it and he couldn't stop eating it! I love garlic, fresh parsley and lemon so added more than the recipe called for, used butter and extra virgin olive oil as the base and added about 1/4 cup of heavy cream at the end until just heated through. Excellent dish, will definitely add to the rotation. Thanks Shannon!!!

Ramen Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2003
This was easy and so tasty! Since I served alongside fried fish I used shrimp ramen instead of chicken, and toasted the almonds, sesame seeds and noodles just before adding. My husband loved it which makes it a keeper - thanks for sharing this!

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2003
MUY DELICIOSO!! I would have given this 10 stars if I could have, for ease of preparation and overall yumminess. I used the Rotel "Mexical Festival" tomatoes w/ chiles, and the only thing I did different was add 1 can cream of chicken soup in place of 1 of the cans of broth. I may add some enchilada sauce to the mix next time, just for kicks. Thank you SO much Terryn for sharing - definitely a keeper!!!

Broccoli Salad I

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2002
This HAS to be the recipe for the broccoli salad at Souplantation, it tastes identical! It's perfect for holidays, potlucks, and summertime. The ingredients are all perfect together and the measurements are spot on - this is seriously an awesome salad!!

Allspice Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2002
YUM!!! I used it to top an easy spice cookie recipe I've been using for years (1 box spice cake mix, 1/2 cup butter, 1/2 cup Crisco, 1 egg-bake at 350 for 11 minutes). Took the frosted cookies to a Christmas Sing at my son's pre-school and they were gone in minutes...people said they were the best cookies on the table! Will definitely use again and again - thanks V for sharing!!!

Hot Buttered Rum Batter

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2002
This is really, REALLY good! I had wanted to give as gifts and got my Ziploc baggies all ready with instructions and everything, then realized that this batter doesn't freeze like ice cream, it's more like a thick, sticky panckake batter (presumably hence the name "Hot Buttered Rum BATTER)...I ended up keeping it for myself - poor me! Thanks for sharing Shari - will make another batch for an upcoming after Christmas party!!!

Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2002
Ohhhhhh - this salad is EXCELLENT! The swiss cheese, the cashews, the fresh fruit...my mom claimed the dressing wasn't even needed, the salad was so good on it's own. I used cherry-flavored Craisins for the dried cranberries, just for a little extra flavor (like it really needed it!), and the dressing was SO easy to make in the 'ol food processor. Though my husband stated it "looked like a girly salad with all that fruit and cheese" everyone loved this, EVEN THE MEN! Thanks so much for sharing Nora - will make again and again (and again!)!! **UPDATE** This is even easier with a bottled dressing (Knott's Lemon Poppy Seed or Brianna's Homestyle Poppy seed dressing) as the secret isn't so much in the homemade dressing as it lies in the combination of ingredients. Fabulous salad, I will make every Easter and Thanksgiving!!!!!

Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2002
***UPDATE I make this every year but have always used yams, this time I splurged and bought actual sweet potatoes instead - what an absolutely yummy difference, I'll never use yams again!!!*** In a word - YUM!!! Sweet and tasty through and through and I don't even normally eat sweet potatoes. I had a bit too much wine and dumped every pecan in the house into my pecan pie, had none left for the topping and it was STILL good. After it was done cooking I topped with mini-marshmallows (for the traditionalists in the family) and tossed it back into the oven for 12 minutes...everyone kept going back for seconds, thirds, etc...was even good heated up the next day in the microwave! A keeper - thanks Heather!!!

No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2002
YUM! This pie is cool, creamy, peanut-buttery and absolutely decadent!!! I too used the Neufchatel cheese, low-fat cool whip and reduced fat peanut butter. I poured everything into a Keebler chocolate crust and topped it with chocolate chips. Sure glad it makes two pies! A definite keeper - thanks Megan!!!!!

Pastry Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2002
YUM!!!!! This almost didn't make it onto the cake after my husband discovered how tasty it was straight out of the bowl. I sliced a white cake in half and used this cream to fill it, placed the top of the cake back on and topped with this site's "Cool Whipped Topping." Oh, yeah. Definitely a keeper. Cheers to you Kevin!

Cool Whipped Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2002
This is the easiest to make, yummiest frosting recipe I have ever come across. I made it to top a birthday cake and everyone just RAVED and gobbled it all up. Will definitely use again (and again and again...) Thanks Shirley!!! **UPDATE** I used this to frost the "Strawberry Cake II" from this site (the BEST strawberry cake EVER!) substituting chocolate pudding for the vanilla for a work potluck...my co-workers couldn't get enough of cake or frosting and are still following me around and asking when I can bring in more...this frosting is just fantastic - fool-proof, versatile, not overly-sweet and positively yummy. You MUST try it!!!

Anytime Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2002
This is some seriously yummy stuff. I tripled the recipe for a pool party I threw over the weekend and everyone just LOVED it. I had to give it a low Kid Friendly Rating though because not even one of the 30 kids at the party would try it (though their parents were gobbling it up!) Next time I'm adding marshmallows and topping w/ toasted coconut. YUM!!!!!

Artichoke Bruschetta

Reviewed: May 17, 2002
This is truly amazing stuff...my husband couldn't even wait for me to top the baguette slices with the artichoke mixture and broil them, he just started dipping the bread right into the bowl (it was just as good!) Very easy and quick to make - will definitely use this recipe again and again!!
