Cherry Berry Peach Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2013
Just loved the flavor combo of the different fruits. Was an excellent pie. Probably one of the best pies I've made. A keeper.

Tina's Shortbread Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2015
Great little shortbread cookie. I added some vanilla and chocolate candies instead of chocolate chips. I also used pecans. Everyone loved them.

Spinach Watermelon-Mint Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2014
I too used another type of greens instead of spinach and I opted for more watermelon and less mint. We found it to be both a luscious and visually appetizing salad. The Worcestershire sauce adds an additional flavor layer to the dressing that was quite appealing. I also sprinkled some sesame seeds and poppy seeds on top for eye appeal. Didn't use as much onion just some through-out. Didn't add the pecans and actually not sure if they're needed.

Fava Bean Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2014
Paired this with " Asian Orange Chicken" on this site. Lovely way to prepare fava beans. I used freshly cooked favas for this recipe.

Orange Cornish Hen for Two

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2014
A flavorful treat; the glaze gives a beautiful orange color to the final dish and an impressive presentation for a special dinner. I cooked at a lower temp as suggested by others.

Summer Anytime Crisp Corn Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2014
I like this because you can pick and choose veggies or stir-up the dressing according to your preferences. I used freshly cooked corn-on-cob and cut it off.

Fondant for Chocolate Cherries

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2014
The corn syrup really works nicely in the recipe and makes a great fondant. I thinned this some with more corn syrup and favorite flavorings to make a filling for chocolate eggs. Also, I colored some to use for the centers. I'll be using for my chocolate covered cherries. Thanks

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2014
Rich, creamy, decadent are all words that come to mind when describing this delicious cheesecake... absolutely a New York Cheesecake. I made cranberry glaze which was perfect for the holidays.

Orange-Almond Poppy Seed Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2013
I used two loaf pans as suggested by reviewers. Sorry didn't have any almond extract, but used another favorite of mine. I suggest some orange zest if you like and fresh squeezed O.J. or good quality juice otherwise. I made about half the glaze for pouring and made up a little heavier powdered sugar glaze for a drizzling pattern. Good tasting bread.

Pumpkin Parfait by Jo

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2013
I made this a little differently by not adding ice-cream in the pumpkin mixture because I wanted the deeper color. Nice dessert.

Waldorf Salad I

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2014
The watercress fit beautifully into this wonderful salad. I didn't have any apple juice on hand, so subbed some orange juice and added a touch sugar to balance. I also used one sweet apple and one tart only. The salad looked elegant on the plates and delicious. I think this should be called "Waldorf Watercress Salad" so people can see the special ingredient when just browsing. But anyway a lovely dish. Thank-you

Chocolate Orange Fondue

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2013
I used milk chocolate (that's what I had on hand.) Quite thin, but very tasty. Will make thicker next time.

Bill's Seasoned Ketchup

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2014
Wanted something different on the burgers of our "4th of July" celebration and this delivered. So easy to make it like you want it. A great way to top off those charbroiled burgers plus more.

Asian Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2014
I added a few extra veggies to shine along with rice and paired with fresh "Fava Bean Salad" on this site. Restaurant quality dish. Oh and I didn't marinate the chicken at all, I just made the sauce and cooked the chicken.

Quick Creamy Reuben Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2014
I'm rating 5 stars even though I put in less sauerkraut and swiss cheese to my liking. I also added a bit of red bell pepper. We loved it! If you do put in less ingredients, you will probably want to adjust liquids as you desire.

Cheesy Onion Focaccia

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2009
Wanted to make my own focaccia and this was the right recipe. The onions and garlic cooked in the seasoning makes a big difference. Also I like to brush my bread with good olive oil for flavor. Try the recipe for pizza crust as well, just let rise a few minutes then roll out thinner.
