Apricot Nectar Cake I

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2008
I made 2 of these this weekend and received rave reviews! Both came together very easily and was great to use up the apricot nectar! I did one in a bundt pan (baking time was right on) with diced dried apricot bits (rehydrated: poured very hot water over them, let them sit for 5 minutes, drained) folded into the batter. The other was following the recipe but in a 9x13" (baking time ~40 minutes). Both were great, but the general consensus was the cake with apricot bits was better... Oh, and they were plenty sweet and moist without the glaze, so I just sprinkled a bit of powdered sugar over top.

Sunday Brunch Eggs

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2008
This was a good dish, but not what I was expecting. It came out as a hearty, filling breakfast. Next time I'll sprinkle some herbs over top for color. I used half and half to save a few calories and it tasted very creamy still! One Tip: tear each cheese piece into 3 pieces and form a triangle. Then crack the egg into the middle of the triangle. It helps nestle the egg in place and prevents shifting.

Almond-Topped Spiced Peaches

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2008
We followed this recipe exactly and it turned out great. I never would have guessed that the cream was sour cream! It just tasted like a fresh whipped cream and the curry flavoring was so subtle. Very good and we'll certainly make it again!

McCormick's Dilly Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2008
4.5 stars I really liked this for the variety and the different flavors it brings out. It's easy and quick to make (just have large bowl!) and kept pretty well for our outdoor activities. I'll make again. Everyone enjoyed something different.

Greek Penne and Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2008
3stars as is, 4 stars with changes. Very easy to put together and great flavor combinations. Alterations: Halve the pasta. Use 1 can of diced tomatoes or 3 tomatoes (not nearly enough). And bump up the seasoning (but then I tend to like things with some fun flavors). Oh! the lemon juice is essential! Will definitely make again, Thanks!

Triple Berry Crisp

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
We reduced the butter to 1c, I can't imagine adding all of it. I will increase the fruit next time (frozen worked well) to 7c. and might even decrease the crisp portion. Very good though! Very good. Thanks!

Chicken with Asparagus and Roasted Red Peppers

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
This was a good recipe for us. I sliced the chicken breasts and they cooked up much quicker than the recipe indicated. :) I couldn't find roasted red peppers, so I tried a few chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (with the sauce rinsed off). It made it quite spicy and my husband liked it. I will keep looking for roasted red peppers. The asparagus blended nicely with it, too. I might try serving this over rice or noodles next time, too... Thanks!

Raisin Buttermilk Coffee Cake

Reviewed: May 25, 2008
This recipe's great. I followed it exactly (doubled) and made 2 rather full 9x13's. It baked for ~50 minutes? and went very quickly at work. One taster suggested increasing the raisins, but it could go either way. I'll definitely be making it again. Thanks for the great recipe!

Mostaccioli with Spinach and Feta

Reviewed: May 24, 2008
I enjoyed this recipe and I think others did as well, but even following many of the suggestions to add flavor, it still needed more. The women seemed to enjoy it much more than our meat-craving men. My husband finished the dish but asked not to have it again. One thing worth noting is that this recipe feeds 5 people. We didn't trust it and doubled it to feed our 6 but it makes much more than we expected. :)

Overnight Coffee Cake

Reviewed: May 22, 2008
I've been making this one for over a year now and love how easy it is to make ahead of time! I can bake it when I get up and it's still piping hot by the time my coworkers get it. And they LOVE warm treats. :D Thanks so much for this great recipe!

Banana Pancakes I

Reviewed: May 12, 2008
This was great, followed it as written and it was great. Banana flavor was very evenly incorporated and the batter was a great consistency. Next time might add cinnamon+vanilla. The guys said it was like biting into banana bread. :) Thanks!

Bacon for the Family or a Crowd

Reviewed: May 12, 2008
Four stars for as written, 5 stars if you follow suggestions. I foil-lined a jelly roll pan, used a cooling rack for one, broiler pan for the other. Both work. Took ~25 minutes for medium-sliced bacon. The 3 men I served were very complimentary about the flavor but lack of grease. Great recipe!

Absolute Best Pancake Syrup

Reviewed: May 12, 2008
This was wonderful. I'd never made syrup before but it was much more flavorful than store-bought syrup and very fun to make. I used a 4.5Qt saucepan and it handled the foaming fine, and I'm glad I listened to that suggestion. Followed the recipe exactly. :D Thanks so much!

White Ranch Macaroni

Reviewed: May 7, 2008
I think this is a 4-star, my husband demands 5... He LOVED it. I enjoyed it. There's a lot of flavor in this recipe, even with the asiago cheese taken down to ~2 c. One reviewer suggested increasing the ranch (we used Kraft FF Ranch) but next time I will use less than a full cup. It was very saucy. Maybe I'll use more noodles (Whole wheat!) next time, but it'll need a larger casserole dish. Really liked the crunchy bread crumbs on top, too!

Honey Ginger Grilled Salmon

Reviewed: May 5, 2008
Very good, and easy. I tried this using the oven (~35 min uncovered, 350). I forgot to marinate it and it still tasted great. Probably from the basting. Thanks!

Puff Pastry Salmon

Reviewed: May 3, 2008
This was fun to assemble. We combined the two sheets and two lumps into one larger "log." It was tasty and got high marks from the 6 of us (my cooking club). Definitely cut down on the spinach and choose your pesto wisely. Most liked the sun-dried tomato pesto, but I'll use lemon pesto next time... Tossed in some feta and it was good! :) Will make again. Thanks!
