Caesar Salad Supreme

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
Don't mess with a good thing!! Made for a dinner party last night. My friend who is a self proclaimed caesar salad snob said this was best she'd ever had and better than any italian bistro. I followed the ingredients exactly as stated. I pureed dressing in food processor to avoid chunks of garlic or anchovies overpowering a bite. I was told that I WILL be bringing this to any future dinners I am invited to. It is rich, it is garlic-y, it is creamy, it is thick. It is AMAZING!!!! Time to stock up on anchovies in the pantry!!!

Buttery Spritz Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2011
Wow, what a disappointment. I followed this recipe exactly, and while I could give it 4 or 5 stars for taste (which I really really liked), I didn't have the luck with consistency that the other reviewers had. Maybe I needed to refrigerate after all? Half of what I pressed needed to be repressed and when they came out of the oven, the 4 shapes that I tried had mostly flattened into something unrecognizable, and this in turn made them very hard to remove from the cookie sheet without breaking. They just became far too delicate. If you asked the five 10 year olds I fed them to (after I concluded they were not going out with me tonight) what their rating was, they would have given them 5 stars!!! Might try again and chill dough??

Death by Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
Can I give this 10 stars? First try, and it was a HUGE hit at a party!!!!!!! If you give this less than 5 stars because you think it is chocolate overload or too rich, then you obviously didn't read the title! I made the filling just as instructed, using Ghiradelli. I wouldn't double the crust as others suggested. I added an extra 5 oreos and another tablespoon of butter. I only pressed it up the side of the pan about an inch and the thickness was perfect all around. This will be my new solution to the question "Can you bring a dessert?"

Bob's Stuffed Banana Peppers

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
FAB!!!! I sliced peppers in half and laid on sides - FAR easier than stuffing them whole, and meat stayed nicely mounded on top. I had enough meat left to also stuff some extra green peppers. I did have to make another batch of sauce for these though, since I used all the sauce on the 8 banana peppers/16 halves. I did not boil anything prior to stuffing and still turned out great. A definite keeper, and a nice change from the everyday rotation!!!!

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2009
OMG OMG OMG!!!!! There is a reason this is a 5 star recipe!!!!!! I used half oil and half applesauce only because I ran out of oil and was determined to make these at that very moment. Will be making double batches from now on and will be making these OFTEN!

Fresh Salsa

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2009
I followed this almost to a tee, right up until it was time to add the can of tomatos/chilis. I decided to omit to stay with a truly fresh salsa, and it was wonderful! The lemon/lime juice gave it a tangy flavor and the cumin added a nice zip. I chopped each of the veggies SEPARATELY in a food processor to obtain the desired consistency for each ingredient and added it all to a bowl. The end result was a very coarse salsa that did not have a whole lot of liquid and I was pleasantly surprised. This was my first time using/tasting jimaca and it added a nice crunch. I made this for the heck of it this afternoon, had several friends stop by unexpectedly and it was gone in a short time. I wasn't sure what to expect when I served, but they loved it and I will make this recipe again (minus the Rotel!) after my next jalopeno harvest from the garden! Give it a try!!!!

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
Unbelievable! I made a few changes myself based on previous reviews and have made this cake 3 times now to rave reviews!!! For oil, use 3/4 c. and add 1/2 c applesauce, instead of all white sugar, use 1c. white and 1c. brown sugar, use 3 t. vanilla, 3 t. cinnamon, add 1/4 t. nutmeg and 8 oz can of pineapple. Fo9r the frsting, I use 3 c. conf. sugar instead of 4, and if making this a layer cake, double the frsoting recipe so that there is lots since that is the way we like it! Can't go wrong with this recipe.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2008
I doubled this, as I do with most crockpot recipes. When doing this, I used 3 packages of salad dressing mix (saltiness was perfect!), added 1 c. white wine & 1 1/2 large pkgs sliced mushrooms as mentioned in other re3views, and used lite sour cream instead of cream of chicken. Delicious!!!!! Will make again and looking forward to leftovers tomorrow!!!!

The Best Bean and Ham Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2008
YUM YUM YUM!!!! I forgot the lemon juice, and for the broth, I just used a combined total of 8 c. chicken broth to cook the beans in. Cooked ham and beans in crockpot alone for the first 4 hours, then added the rest for the next 4 hours since we don't like our veggies real mushy. It was PERFECT!!!! We are huge soup eaters and I have some good and not so good bean soups, but this is probably the best! I was a bit worried about all the tomatos and veg. juice turning this into a spaghetti like recipe, but it made a hearty stock with just a hint of tomato. I think all the other seasonings added to it are the perfect mix. This is absolutely a keeper!!!!!!!!

Bacon Wrapped Hamburgers

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2008
Followed recipe exactly - DEE-LISH!!!!!! Great twist on the ole' burger and the family loved them!!!! Consistency was great and maybe the lo-fat bacon kept the flames down. Adding to the weekend line-up.

Special Irish Beef Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2008
I was a little worried about the bitterness as I started sampling, but after I added the sugar and italian spices that others have mentioned and then cooked the meat for 2+ hours, it turned out great!!!!! I added the carrots and potatoes after that because we don't like them mushy. Used only half the carrots mentioned. Next time will add more mushrooms? Great stew!!!!

Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2008
When your 3 & 5 yr. old boys ask for seconds of ASPARAGUS you know you have a keeper!!!!!! This is a family fave and I make it for company all the time. Only change is that I need to double the recipe just for my family of 5!!

Lamb and Winter Vegetable Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2007
Oh my! I feel the need to add my 2 cents since this was absolutely delicious! I've never cooked with butternut or parsnips so I was mildly skeptical but kept an open mind. Glad I did!!! Followed the recipe almost to a tee but when I doubled it, I was short on butternut so I used 2 c. butternut and 2 c. carrots. Good flavor. Also used dry thyme instead of fresh. Would make again in a heartbeat and next time might try the frozen beef stew meat in my freezer just because I have it already. This was fantastic!!!!!!

Irresistible Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2007
Followed another review and added 1 1/2 c. raisins. I am not a soda bread expert, but I think it was pretty good. Husband loves soda bread abnd thought this was great! My only mistake was cooking for 60 minutes and finding the middle still gooey.

Hash Brown Casserole II

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2007
Was a little disapointed with this recipe after reading the reviews. Husband would give it a 5 and loves it, so I gave it a 3 instead of a 2...I found it a little dryer than others I've had and not as much flavor as I'd hoped. Have made it twice now in the hopes I'd like it better the 2nd time, but no luck. Will look for another one that I like better...sorry! (I am usually with the majority as far as reviews go)

Corned Beef and Cabbage II

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2007
I am jumping on board with everyone else - EXCELLENT! Followed ingrediants as listed. I used a crockpot AND a foil bag in it - best cornbeef we've ever had!!!!! Orange added a nice taste but my husband couldn't place the taste when I asked him what the secret ingrediant was. I'm normally thankful that I only have to eat this once a year, but I'm 0making another next week while CB still on sale!!!! Only thing I might change is a bigger piece of meat so that this time wehave leftovers!!!!

Chicken Andouille Gumbo

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2007
With some very minor changes after reading reviews, I thought this was delicious, as did my familyl! Added extra 1/2 teaspoon of salt, used frozen okra, and held off on the cayenne till the end - andouille can really spice up a dish. Used less than 1/2 teasppon of cayenne and thought it had the perfect spice. Also added some extra smoked turkey sausage just because I had it. Doubled the batch and freezing the rest. I am not a gumbo expert, but I do make a lot of soups and I thought this was great!!!

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2006
I have to add my 2 cents!!! This soup was amazing!!!! Only change was that I doubled it and added 3 lb. chicken because we are a family of carnivours. Had a small kick to it but not enough that the kids thought it too hot. Will definitely add this recipe to the regulars, especially in the winter as it gets colder - a good rib sticker!!!!

Abby's Chicken Rollatini

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2006
Even my 3 & 5 yr. olds love this dish!!! HINT: since I'd read so many reviews about the keaking cheese, I rolled each piece of stuffed chicken in another piece of prosciutto (or 2) to cover the ends. Worked out great!

Rotisserie Chicken Chili With Hominy and Chiles

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2006
With some changes, this recipe is FABULOUS!!! I used 3 chickens instead of 2. I didn't bother to make my own broth and used just 6 cups of water and chicken boullion. I pureed 1 can of hominy and one can of beans for added thickenss, and when the whole beans were added, I used 1 can hominy and 1-2 cans of beans. This makes the chili much meatier and the added beans (both whole and pureed) add a lot more thickness and texture.
