Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
I've been making this soup for several years, and it's one of my favorites. It is thick, creamy and savory.

Fondue Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
I have been making this bread for years, and I love it. It is a hit at pot lucks, too. 1) I think it should be credited, it is from the Good Housekeeping Cookbook, mine was published in 1980. 2) I use butter rather than margarine 3) Heat the milk and butter to 120-130 degrees. "Very warm" is not descriptive enough. An electronic temperature probe is excellent, it alarms when the temperature is reached so I don't have to stand there and watch it. 4) I too have tried 2 pounds of cheese and found it too much. I use 1 pound. 5) My recipe gives the oven temp as 375 degrees for one hour.

Pesto Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2011
This the best grilled cheese ever. I used real cheese: muenster, a little swiss and cheddar. The combination with the pesto was awesome. I served with Garden Fresh Tomato Soup from this site, and my husband said "I wonder what the poor people are eating tonight?" Contrast that with toasted American cheese on Wonder Bread, served with High Fructose Corn Soup, er, I mean Campbell's Tomato Soup...

Dry Ranch Style Seasoning for Dip or Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2011
Outstanding. I will never buy bottled dressing again. This has such a complex flavor. I used plain Greek yogurt instead of buttermilk, and mayonnaise to make dressing. I didn't think it was too thick. I also added some grated cucumber. I use an old spice jar to keep the mix, and add a teaspoon to 1/4 cup mayonnaise and 1/4 cup yogurt to make dressing for two.

Baked Beans III

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2011
Really good and really easy. The brown sugar carmelizes the bacon, which is a flavor that's hard to beat. I used the cast iron skillet method, which is even better because it only uses one pan. It baked for about 30 minutes, intil thick.

The Amazing Swedish Meatball

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2011
The meatballs were good. The sauce was BAD. It was weak and had no flavor. I thought it was a bad idea to add water to the sauce, but I did it anyway.... I threw it out and made a different sauce.

Best Buckwheat Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2010
These are excellent pancakes. I did substitute plain, non-fat yogurt for the buttermilk because I didn't have any on hand. It made the batter really thick, which was great, and it really foamed up which made them very fluffy. The bubbles in the batter are a reaction between the acid buttermilk (or yogurt) and the bicarbonate in the baking soda. If you leave out the baking soda (as one reviewer recommended) you will have flat, cardboard pancakes. Baking soda does need to be mixed thoroughly with dry ingredients before adding the wet, that may have been the problem with "tasting baking soda."

Marinated Green Beans with Olives, Tomatoes, and Feta

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
Easy and delicious. I'm not a big fan of feta, but the olives really complement the flavor of that cheese. I have a lot of green beans and cherry tomatoes from the garden and I can fix this in the morning and take for lunch.

Roquefort Pear Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
Excellent salad. Regarding carmelizing the pecans, I tried it both ways, with and without adding water to the sugar. If you add water, the sugar becomes dry and tasteless, but the pecans are separate and remain soft. If you carmelize the sugar first, meaning melting it over high heat until it becomes amber-colored, then add the pecans and immediately pour out onto waxed paper and separate the pecans, you get declicious, crunchy candies instead of dry, flakey mush.

Summer Salad with Cumin-Crusted Salmon

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
Excellent. The combination of black beans and cumin is outstanding. I didn't have an orange (my husband ate them all) but I did have some strawberries, and those worked great. Easy and delicious.

Southwestern Caesar Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2009
Excellent. My husband loved it. I definately included the anchovie (paste) because it adds a lot to the flavor (and it's not a fishy flavor for those who are afraid of it) and is an ingredient of traditional Caesar Salad. I halved the dressing for one head of romaine, and it was perfect. Just the right amount of spice with 1/2 chipotle. I also added corn and black beans.

Bananas Foster Chimichangas

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
Wow, this was great. I prepared the sauce with dinner and let it cool. I folded a tortilla in half with sauce inside, and fried them quick in a little oil. A little of the sauce leaked out, and I was worried, but there was plenty left inside, and the sugar helped crisp the tortilla.

Fruited Cranberry Relish

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
This is our classic family recipe. I used a 10 oz package of cranberries, one peeled apple, and peeled orange with the zest. And ONE CUP of sugar. It is too sour with less sugar. Last, and best: add the seeds of a whole pomegranate.

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
My husband loved this. I added peas and corn with the carrots as another reviewer suggested. It was great. I love that the broth and flour created a gravy. And it was easy to assemble.
