Lemon Icing

Reviewed: May 17, 2007
I added the zest from 1/2 lemon, and 2 Tbsp. orange juice (In addition to the 2 Tbsp. lemon juice) to make it less tart. Very nice with Carol's White Cake with Lemon Filling on this website.

White Cake with Lemon Filling

Reviewed: May 17, 2007
This is good and looks pretty. Once assembled, cover and put in the fridge until serving time, for easier slicing. I substituted 2 eggs for the 4 egg whites and lemon extract for the vanilla. I used Carol's Lemon Icing recipe to frost the top of the cake and also between the 2 layers. Yummy! Thanks, Carol.

One Bowl Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2007
These are delicious. I baked them just shy of 35 minutes and they came out just the way our family likes brownies. These don't have baking powder, so are very fudgy! I added a pinch of salt and left out the nuts.

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2007
We enjoyed this as the main course for our candlelight Valentine's Day dinner. Used fresh Atlantic salmon. The marinade is good, but what makes it is the lemon pepper/garlic rub. I didn't add the water to the marinade--why dilute it?

Creamy Potato With Rosemary Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2007
A keeper, for sure. Changes I made for our tastes: used minced garlic (from a jar) instead of the whole cloves; used no cayenne; used 1% milk instead of cream. The fresh rosemary really makes this great.

Easy Arugula Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2007
This is fabulous! I couldn't find arugula so used other greens. Instead of tossing all ingredients together, I arranged the greens, tomatoes, pine nuts, parmesan and dried cranberries (rather than avocado) on individual plates. I combined the oil and vinegar, salt and pepper and drizzled this over the top. My husband raved. Will definitely make this one again.

Soft Breadsticks

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2007
I found this recipe to be fine without the additional flour that others recommended. Instead of the sesame seeds, I dipped them in the butter and herb topping found in the recipe for Cupid's Breadsticks on this website.

Cool Raspberry Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2007
I served this to my husband as part of the menu for our candlelight Valentine's dinner. It is wonderful! I only used a small dab of the sour cream for garnish. Try this--you will be glad you did.

Banana Pudding II

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2007
The ingredients are just right. For inexperienced cooks, a few suggestions: while the water in the double boiler is heating, don't place the top pan over the water yet. Mix the sugar, salt and cornstarch together in a bowl, add milk and eggs. Beat all together, pour into the room-temperature top part of double boiler. When water is boiling, lower to a simmer, and place top pan over water. This method prevents lumps, and keeps pudding from sticking to pan. We also like to top the pudding with a bit of whipped cream. Thanks for a great recipe, Sue.

Pumpkin Cranberry Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2006
This was great. I used pecans instead of walnuts. I used one cup of pumpkin puree. I added 1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut--a great addition that my family liked. One Tbsp. of pumpkin pie spice is equivalent to: 1-1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 3/4 tsp. ginger, 3/8 tsp. cloves and 3/8 tsp. nutmeg. Thank you, Linda!!

Jewish Apple Cake II

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2006
Good recipe, but needs tweaking, as other reviewers have stated. I substituted applesauce for all the oil, used 5 medium Granny Smith apples, used 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour in place of 1 cup all-purpose flour, cut back the sugar to 2 cups, added 1/2 cup each of raisins and chopped walnuts. Soaked the raisins in the egg/juice/vanilla mixture while I peeled and sliced the apples thinly, mixed the nuts with the dry ingredients, added the applesauce, then the other wet mixture to the dry, baked in 10" tube pan for 70 minutes.

Never-Ever-Fail Meringue

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2006
I guess meringue and I were never meant to be in the same kitchen. Even this recipe did not work for me. It seemed fine until I refrigerated the lemon pie I used it on, and as usual, the meringue pulled away from the sides and beaded up. From now on will use whipped cream on pies.

Chocolate Shell Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2006
Wow--so simple, but so good. Why make more work, when this is so easy and delicious? Thanks for sharing, Leah.

Bill Clinton's Lemon Chess Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2006
This one deserves 5 stars. Very rich, you only need a small piece. I substituted cream for the milk, and used 1/3 cup instead of 1 cup, for a 9-inch pie. Yummy! One of our favorites now.

Belle and Chron's Spinach and Mushroom Quiche

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2006
I liked this recipe, but can't give it 5 stars because of all the changes I made. I made it into a crustless quiche and baked it in a 13x9 glass dish. I used 6 slices of bacon, 8 eggs, 1-1/2 cups light cream, 1/2 tsp. nutmeg, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. pepper, 2 pgk. (10 oz.)fresh baby spinach, steamed, 2 cups chopped mushrooms, sauteed in 2 Tbsp. bacon grease along with 1 cup onions. I used 1/2 pound of swiss cheese, which amounts to 2-1/4 cups (no cheddar). I saved 1/4 cup of the cheese to sprinkle on top. Mixed all ingredients together, baked at 375 for 35 minutes. I spent 45 minutes on prep time, plus the quiche needs to sit for about 10 minutes when it comes out of the oven. I couldn't see how I could mix raw spinach and raw mushrooms with the liquid, so cooked them lightly, and it worked out great. Sorry for the long review, but making these changes is the only way I will use this recipe again.

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2005
I halved the recipe but stayed with the original amount of cheese. I asked my family if they would suggest putting some of the spices into the batter rather than with the butter and they said no. I like the suggestion to make the homemade Bisquick recipe on this site, instead of brand-name Bisquick--will give that a try next time I make these. We thought these were pretty close to RL biscuits!

Simple Salmon Chowder II

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2005
Very thick, tasty chowder. Didn't see green onions in the ingredient list, though it says to add them at the end. I used frozen corn rather than canned, and a full can of evaporated milk. Also, it would serve no more than 4 to 6, at least in our house. As one reviewer suggested, this is excellent with the Cheddar Bay biscuits found on this site. Also, I like to crunch up the dry scalloped potatoes when they are still in the plastic wrap--makes for smaller chunks of potato.

Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2005
Great salad. I only use about 1/4 of the dressing on the salad, and save the rest for another time. Also, I only use 1/3 cup oil, rather than 2/3 cup. I used fresh lemon, just a shake of salt, and dried onion flakes.

Pumpkin Cake III

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2005
Instead of making a sheet cake, I poured the batter into 3 layer pans, and made a layer cake (bake for 35 minutes). I followed the advice to use 3/4 cup oil and 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce. Also as suggested, I used JJ's cream cheese frosting II on this site, and had enough frosting left over to top the wonderful 90-minute cinnamon rolls, also on this site. I took the layer cake to a potluck and not even a crumb was left. Thank you, Sue!
