Crab Cakes III

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2004
Absolutely perfect! I used dried basil and it still came out well. I "pasteurized" the egg yolk for the sauce by briefly (about a minute) dipping it into "just boiled water (somewhere between 70-90F).

Banana Cranberry Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2003
My first batch did not come out very well, but after I altered the cranberry sauce component to include equal parts of jelly and whole cranberries (as opposed to the first batch where I purposely picked out the whole berries only), doubled the amount of cinammon and watched my baking time more closely (remember, the 50-60 minutes cooking time is for 9x5 loaves, and I was making smaller ones) it came out pretty good. I personally did not like it, but my husband and a lot of family liked it and even asked for the recipe.

Sweet Potato Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2003
Turned out perfect, despite all my cutbacks and substituitions: used only half the butter, skim instead of regular milk, and Splenda instead of (used 3/4 cup only too). I also shortened potato cooking time to 15 minutes by using a pressure cooker.

Grandma Ruth's Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2003
Pretty good, so far as "traditional" stuffing goes - aka a bit boring and likely not the kind of stuffing that will spark interesting conversation among your guests. It's probably as good as buying pre-made stuffing from a decent diner.

Aunt Blanche's Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2003
you did mention they were "cake-like," but i never realized by how much...i was looking for a "soft, melt-in-your mouth" muffin, but i think this was a bit too much on the cake side than i was expecting...

Fresh Rhubarb Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2003
...used frozen fruit instead of fresh; granular Splenda instead of sugar (adding 1/3 cup extra for more sweetness and using 2 tbsp. more of flour to compensate for the absence of the thickening effect of real sugar),mixed up the sweetener and flour with the fruit before putting into the crust, and used an extra tbsp. of butter... ...the pie came out PERFECT!!!...thank you, thank you, thank you!!! - from me (who's never had a rhubarb pie before) and my husband (who's been "belly-aching" for a rhubarb pie - not readily available from where we are - for quite sometime).

American Girl's Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2003
The initial appeal of this recipe was its simplicity and the fact that it called for low-fat margarine and skim milk. In addition, as my husband is a diabetic, I substitued granular Splenda for the sugar - just followed the online Splenda info source (www.splenda.com) to add 1/2 tsp. of extra baking powder for every cup of Splenda used instead of sugar, and checked for earlier cooking time. It turned out really well, except that the outcome was a little "paler' than it would have been with real sugar. I suppose I can always sprinkle some sugar on top to add some color. Also I added a tsp. of ground cinammon and vanilla as suggested by earlier reviewers. I will definitely make it again.

Eggless Tofu Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2002
For those who are looking to cut the fat even more than just getting the eggs out - I substituted the recipe to include skim milk, crumbled feta cheese (4 ounces) and grated parmigiano-reggiano cheese (6 tablesppons), and it turned out pretty well. I could'nt tell you the fat content difference, but the calorie content have been cut to less than half (136 calories per serving). I also drained the tofu between paper towels, afterwards let it sit on tap water for a few minutes then drain it again - it was virtually "tofu-taste"-free as a result.

Reviewed: May 23, 2002
A bit on the bland side - but probably good served with a strong-flavored dish.

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2001
Exceptionally good! Did not have honey and pecans in my pantry, so I ended up using white sugar and walnuts (respectively, using the same measurements). Can't wait to make it again.

Pesto Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2001
The proportion of ingredients were perfect! And its a relief to know that the more affordable walnut can be used instead of the rather expensive pine nut without casualty. Thanks.

Blueberry Bread I

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2001
Very "clean" taste - the blueberry flavor is very well emphasized, not too sweet. Great hot off the oven, but even better the following day.

Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2001
We live 40 minutes from Hammonton,NJ - World's Blueberry Capital. The beautiful berries we picked ourselves went into real good use with this pie recipe. We used extra conrstarch as well, as some of the reviews indicated.

Army SOS Creamed Ground Beef

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2001
Really easy to make. I put in some extra virgin olive oil while browning the beef, more or less doubled the amount of salt, pepper and Wostershire sauce and then added some garlic powder in the end. Was really great on top of mashed potatoes.
