Creamy Lemon-Blueberry Dessert

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
Nine people loved this, including one who said she doesn't ordinarily like cheesecake. My only issue with it was that after baking for 50 minutes it looked like it was a little overdone. It didn't seem to affect the taste or consistency though. Instead of putting crushed blueberries on top, I made Blueberry Breakfast Sauce from this site and had people spoon some on top of their individual pieces. I really liked it that way, and would consider leaving off the Cool Whip and just serving it with the sauce. The lemon/blueberry combination is really delicious!

Tofu Parmigiana

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
It was my first time cooking tofu, and what a pleasant surprise it was! I only had a 15 oz. can of tomato sauce and I used that, proportionately increasing the amount of herbs. I probably used a little more cheese, too. I would definitely make this again, and because it was so successful and good, I'm not afraid to look for other tofu recipes too.

Emily's Famous Hash Browns

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
These turned out beautifully, with a nice crisp exterior. They can be prepared quickly and taste great. I'll be making them again.

Herbed Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
The addition of herbs makes this a really delicious potato soup. I added a little finely chopped celery and some shredded carrot, and I cooked the potatoes in chicken broth. Definitely a keeper.

Scotch Eggs

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
We tried this Scotch Eggs recipe because it doesn't require frying. The eggs tasted great, but the cooking directions required some modifications. At 20 minutes the sausage wasn't yet cooked, so we turned the oven up to 375, but after another 10 minutes they still weren't browning. We sprayed some non-stick cooking spray on them, baked them a while longer, and when the sausage tested as done, we put them under the broiler for a short while to brown them. They're not something you'd make all the time, but they do have a fun presentation, and these are probably a bit healthier than the traditional recipe since they're not fried.

Swedish Nuts II

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
Wow, are these sweet! I made the recipe as written, but I think they need some cinnamon or other spice, and maybe also some cayenne to temper the sweetness. They're easy enough to make and bake up nicely, although a lot of my coating fell off the nuts as I stirred them.

Pecan Sandies

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
I substituted butter for the margarine. While the texture of these was light and crispy, I didn't care for the taste as you could taste the undertone of oil. Not what I want for a Christmas cookie!

Cappuccino Flats

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2009
I'm hard pressed to know exactly what I felt about these cookies. First of all, they baked up very nicely, and that's a plus. But the flavor confused me, and to my mind the flavors conflicted. You have chocolate, coffee and cinnamon all vying with each other, and I wasn't sure exactly what the flavor was. Nevertheless, my husband and I have been eating them happily. I wanted to try these for a long time, I'm glad I did, but I don't think I'll be making them again.

Toad in the Hole III

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
I liked it, my husband didn't. I added some seasonings other reviewers suggested, but they were still subtle.

Pot Stickers Traditional

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
I was a little afraid to try these because I knew they were going to be labor intensive. They were, but on the other hand the recipe makes a lot. (I made some for dinner and froze the rest). I was delighted at how well they turned out and am looking forward to eating the ones I froze. I wasn't crazy about the dipping sauce and preferred some plum sauce. Overall, these are winners.

Frosted Cranberries

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
These make a beautiful garnish for a holiday dessert, or even to be eaten plain. Using the recipe directions they don't take any time at all to make, although they do require drying time. I found I couldn't resist grabbing a few every time I'd pass the counter where they were drying. They are delicious, with the sweet/tart combination and the crunch of the sugar coating.

Corn with a Kick

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
I'm always looking for different ways to make corn, and this one is a winner. I added enough cayenne pepper to be able to know it was there, but not enough that it was really hot. It was part of our Thanksgiving meal and everyone seemed to like it. I'd definitely make it again.

Apple Bacon Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2009
This is an unusual blend of flavors that combine to make a delicious soup. I made it as directed except that I sauteed the celery with the onion and I added a little more beef stock. A nice way to use fall apples.

Pro Ganache

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2009
This gets 5 stars for taste, but mine never set up and remained very runny. I had put it on top of brownies and was unable to cut them ahead of eating because the ganache would have run off. This was disappointing since I was planning to give them to a friend.

Sauteed Apples

Had these as a side dish with a ham slice. Perfect!

Herbed Dumplings

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
While these tasted good, there was something wrong with the consistency. They were almost too fluffy, and pretty much dissoved in your mouth. I will keep looking.

Creamy Butternut Squash With Cinnamon Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
I made this using leftover roasted butternut squash, so I had to modify the technique a bit. We liked the flavor, but all thought it was just too rich. I would recommend using milk rather than half and half. The apple slices as garnish add a nice touch.

Microwave Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2009
I've made this any number of times and love it. This time my husband got the bright idea to add chopped crisp bacon. While the bacon flavor isn't terribly strong, you can detect it, and it makes the candy a little different. Also , if you have a Silpat, definitely use it. Much easier! I'm always amazed at how easy this is and what great results it gives.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2009
Five stars for the consistency of these pancakes, which is outstanding--light, thick, fluffy, and much thicker than pictured. But to my mind the taste was merely okay, which would be 3 stars. I guess the bottom line is that I don't care for pumpkin in pancakes.
