Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2007
I used 1 c butter, 1 c shortening to keep a solid consistancy w/o that gross shortening flavor. Firms up nicely; is forgiving and smoothable.

Lemon Snow Filling

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2007
FYI, 2 t lemon zest is that from one medium sized lemon. I thought this was light and delicious.

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
Other than omitting the olives, I kept this recipe "as is." Very good!

Banana Cream Pie I

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2007
Good but not fabulous. Making w/ a graham cracker crust helps! (there's an easy recipe for 1 on this site.)

Scottish Shortbread IV

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2007
Having made shortbread several times with white sugar, I was skeptical about the brown. I'm now a believer and a sugar convert...great, simple and SUCCULENT cookie!

Caribbean Grilled Chicken Breast with Pineapple Salsa

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2007
The only change I made to the salsa was using sweet vidalia onions rather than red, to suit my taste. Turned out great! Thanks, this is a simple and delicious topping for chicken.

Blueberry Lemon Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2007
I was able to save on fat/sugar by doubling all ingredients except for eggs, of which I used only 3 total and sugar, of which I used 1 1/2 cups total, and making 2 loaves. I also omitted the glaze. It turned out both moist and sweet even with the cutbacks. I'd recommend to those having trouble with sinking blueberries to beat a longer time after the addition of each egg - it fluffs up the batter more and hold the berries in place.

Upside Down Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2007
These taste good, like very cakey cinnamon rolls, but they aren't worth the effort --- too time-consuming for a result of only 12 cookies. I'd rather just make real cinnamon rolls.

Grandma's Gingersnap Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2007
Mine turned out like traditional ginger snaps - thin and crisp (not TOO crisp) rather than the big, soft results some other people got. The flavor is very deep, rich, lovely.

Magic Peanut Butter Middles

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2007
Very rich! A previous post said they had trouble they attributed to using natural peanut butter. I use natural p.b. and had absolutely no problem; I recommend refrigerating the p.b. before using to firm it up. Thanks for the recipe!

Fruit Pizza with White Chocolate

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2007
Nothing wrong w/ this recipe; my personal taste though thinks the white choc chips (couldn't find vanilla) overpowers the taste of the fruit and crust more than compliments it. I prefer the lighter cream cheese frostings for fruit pizza. NOTE: If you make this on a round pizza pan make sure to leave room for spreading - 1 inch at least.

Sweet And Sour Chicken Meatballs

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2007
Easy flavor that the whole family loved. I didn't have pineapple so I added honey for the sweetness but I don't think it really needed it. Will definitely make again w/ the p/a.

Sauteed Cherry Tomatoes with Garlic and Basil

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2007
Cook at last moment when preparing dinner so you can get them right to the table when they're ready; they cool quickly and when that happens the texture fails. Great dish, though!

Curried Chicken Turnovers

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2007
Happy accident occured for me w/ this recipe... By the time I'd prepared the pie crust I realized I didn't have any cooked chicken on hand afterall. In place of the missing meat I added diced cucumbers, dried cherries and yellow raisins. I'd recommend this vegetarian variation! It was filling and deLICious! My 1 1/2 yr old gobbled it up!

Andrea's Pasta Fagioli

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2007
I altered this by using shells instead of ditalini, feta cheese rather than parmesean, and added chicken. The flavor was really great!

Pumpkin Cheese Bread II

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2007
3 1/2 stars. Seems to lack an additional rising agent; like other posts these turn out quite short, or else the recipe only yields one large loaf. Good taste, cakey.

Real Italian Calzones

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2007
I'll echo other reviewers in esteeming this dough recipe - it cooks to perfection - & that you can fill to your liking. My filling consisted of 1 cooked/cubed chic breast, oregano, cheddar & mozz cheeses, salt, pepper, garlic powder and I went ahead & put sauce on the INSIDE - sorry! The recipe made what I consider 4 large, very stuffed calzones. I guess I overstuffed but they turned out delicious and didn't overflow. Thanks for this idea!
