Strufoli II

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2009
I tried to copy my Grandmother's recipe. This was close, but not quite right. I was told that I should have cooked the honey longer to give it a darker color. It was not sticky enough, so the presentation was a flop.... literally. Very messy, too much work, not worth it. For those who attempt this, here's the best tip: When you roll the dough into "ropes", simply cut the ropes into the sizes you want them to be. Once you fry them, they will plump up into ball shapes. I wasted so much time shaping the dough into balls before frying them... a step that was completely unnecessary unless you have so much time on your hands that you don't know what else to do with your day.

Horseradish Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
A very good sauce. I added about 1/4 cup of mayo to the recipe because I found the consistency to be rather gritty. I wanted a creamier sauce and the addition of the mayo was just what I needed. I received raves from my guests that ate this sauce along with roast beef... a perfect compliment! I also made this with an addition of a teaspoon or so of tabasco - a wonderful zing! Try it!

Grilled Romaine Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2008
Something delicious and new! Really - if you enjoy salad, try this! I didn't have olive oil, so I rubbed a little butter, salt and pepper on the halves. Sinful, but amazing! I served the grilled romaine with garden fresh tomatoes and mom's old dressing mixture of ketchup and mayo drizzled lightly over the top. Perfect side for a grilled dinner. Trust me... this is a keeper!

Cream Cheese Won Tons

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
A very good recipe. I had never worked with wontons before. You certainly do need to use one lightly beaten egg plus 2 tbsps water as a "seal" for the edges. I also used a fork to seal it in a pattern similar to ravioli. This is a good base recipe... once you try it, you'll add more and new ingredients to make your wontons unique.

English Trifle

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2010
Very good. I prefer to use berries only. I also add shaved white chocolate atop the cream layer. I prefer to make homemade whipped cream rather than to use store bought cool whip. It's a very rich and decadent dessert, so the more you control the sweetness and the richness of it, the better it will be.

Ginger Veggie Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2010
Excellent. I paired this recipe the the Sesame Noodles recipe on this website (by scoopnana). I had leftovers of both dishes, and the next day I mixed them together - it was better then eating them separately. I highly suggest pairing the two - make each as directed, and combine for a lovely flavor and a more filling meal that both you and your family.guests will love!

Joy's Prizewinning Trifle

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
Great recipe for a basic trifle - any combination of fruits will work. I served this at a summer cookout and it disappeared! Everyone gave 5star reviews; but my own children were more honest: they loved it, but all of them suggested that next time, I leave out the bananas. The flavor is too overpowering and almost ruined the freshness of the summer berries. I would suggest saving your bananas to use in making a banana trifle.

Sopapilla Cheesecake Dessert

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2011
I was so surprised at how amazing this dessert is! I was influenced by the reviews and high ratings given to this creation. I will definitely make it again, but I will make these improvements in the topping: 1/2c butter is too much. 1/4 will work well. 1/2c sugar, again, is overkill. The delicious dessert becomes too sweet, and the sugar masks all the wonderful flavors of the cheesecake. I used less than 1/4c of sugar, and the topping baked wonderfully. I still had a light, crispy, sweet crust. Wonderful, wonderful dessert! Rave reviews from your guests are guaranteed!

Yummy Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
My guests who ate this simple, easy-to-make appetizer thought I'd spent hours putting these flavors together. It was very delicious!

Slow Cooked Corned Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
I will agree that this is a tasty recipe. I followed the given recipe and everyone loved it. The reason I am rating this with only 3 stars is because of the taste of the leftovers. The garlic flavor was so much stronger that it was unappealing. The texture of the meat was not appetizing. I always make more than I expect to serve for dinner because the leftovers make such delicious sandwiches. Such is not the case with this particular recipe.

Iced Coffee Slush

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2010
This was excellent! I followed suggestions, and reduced the amount of sugar to 3/4 cup. I used 3 cups of vanilla creamer and 3 cups of 2%milk. To serve, I added some ice cubes and a shot of hot coffee to the slush in a blender. Top with your choice of cream and flavoring. Truly a hit at my party - one guest suggested that for her birthday, we skip the cake and just put a candle on this drink! Delicious!

Bourbon Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
Delicious! I used the suggestions of other raters and substituted orange liqueur for the liquid... perfect for fall spice or carrot cakes. A keeper.

Puffs

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2010
This was just 'okay'. I prefer the simpler, more basic recipe for the filling... cream cheese should be the only cheese; the jalapenos and garlic should be replaced with water chestnuts, and add your choice of seasons and spices. A bit too much for a 'basic' recipe. Less is better in this already rich appetizer.

Coffee Shop Fudge

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2010
Too soft. If you've made fudge before, you'll recognize just by reading the recipe that the mixture will be too liquidy. After reading reviews, I thought I might have been wrong, but as suspected, it was soft, mushy, and more like a frosting consistency than a piece of good fudge. The taste was lovely, but I will not make it as written again.

Baked Parmesan Perch

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2011
Good, easy recipe. Try brushing the fillets with olive oil instead of butter. If you do have leftovers, they taste excellent when the original fish was not brushed with butter. Simple and delicious.

Five Ingredient Ice Cream

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2009
The Best. The best. The best!!!!! I would give this 100 stars if this site had that many stars as an option! Please try this. It rivals the best restaurant or ice cream stand custards that you can find. Believe me; I'm from Rochester NY, the home of the famous Abbotts Ice Cream Custard. This is just as good. Easy. No heavy machinery needed. Economical. Delicious.

Olive Salad for Muffalettas

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2009
YUM! The original cookbook recipe I had called for an olive salad (black&green olives and celery... heavy on the vinegar) in the sandwich. This was a FAR better addition! Even though I didn't have artichokes on hand, it was wonderful; though I can't wait to try this the "right" way. Also, I used white wine vinegar instead, and it was good. A splendid salad fixing! Thanks!

Limoncello

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
So far, the receivers of the bottles I gave as Christmas gifts say that this was good! The limoncello I've had before was not as bright of a yellow color as mine turned out to be... unfortunately, I'm not in a state that grows lemons - perhaps fresh off-the-tree would have been best. Very fun to make!

Strawberry Tiramisu Trifle

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2008
Delicious! I opted for white chocolate instead, and the dish became even more smooth and creamy, with the perfect touch of sweetness.

Tangy Spare Ribs

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
Delicious! My family will go to lengths to pick out bits of celery and onion in any dish... I substituted these with chopped green & yellow peppers and a dash of onion powder, cooking the mix a little longer so that the peppers were well-cooked. The flavors were wonderful mixed with the recipe ingredients as shown. I'll certainly use this recipe again!
