World's Best Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
This was not as big of a hit as expected. A much sweeter recipe than I prefer for potato salad. I added extra hard boiled eggs. There was too much dressing.

Old Fashioned Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
I made this without tuna as a traditional mac salad and it was a big picnic hit. Wouldn't change anything.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2009
Wonderful recipe. I used 8oz fat-free sour cream and 8oz lite sour cream, and it was very moist. Sprayed pans with Pam and then sprinkled 1/2 the sugar mixture on bottom and sides. Other 1/2 of sugar sprinkled on top of the loaf once poured into pans. Instead of mixing the walnuts in I put them on top of batter with the sugar mixture. They rose perfectly and tasted fabulous. Definitely a keeper!

Parmesan Corn Chowder

Reviewed: May 19, 2008
Great, easy recipe. Followed recipe, though I did add kale with the veggies, which was great. Next time I may add some ham or bacon. You could also add shrimp or scallops, etc. for a different twist. Will definitely make again!

Sugar Cookie Drops

Reviewed: May 7, 2008
Looking for a crispy, shortbready cookie this is it. Add 1/4 tsp salt and double vanilla. Not a soft sugar cookie.

Orange Lunch Box Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2008
Variation: used lemon vest instead of orange. Formed into "logs", after cool dipped bottom in white chocolate and 1/2 bath in milk chocolate disks. Chopped walnuts very fine in food processor and folded into dough. Great flavor, will definitely try again with orange zest. Great cookie!

Cranberry Nut Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2007
After 1 hour in the oven knife still came out wet, so I baked at 5 min. increments for another 20 min. till knife came out clean. Bad mistake! Bread was overcooked. As directions say, bake till bread springs back at touch. It still tastes good and I will make again with only 1 hour in oven! Changes I made: Craisins, not fresh, 1/2 cup of OJ and 1/4 cup Brandy (added a nice rich flavor), used walnuts instead of pecans. Will definitely make again.

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2007
Awesome recipe! Only thing I would do next time is double the sauce. Really an excellent recipe.

Holiday Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2007
Wonderful recipe. I substituted applesauce for the oil. Bread was incredibly moist and fragrant. Will definitely make again. Great as mini-loaves for friends!

Easy Broccoli Quiche

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2007
Wonderful! Used hand mixer to get eggs and milk really fluffy. Mixed spinach, asparagus, onion and cheese into egg and then poured into crust. Topped with sliced tomato. Beating the eggs made a huge difference in how fluffy the quiche turned out. Will definitely make again with many different veggie combos.

Oatmeal Soda Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2007
Very simple recipe to make. I used fat-free sour cream and added walnuts and raisins which were a great addition. Next time I think I would double the honey. Will definately make again!

Chocolate Espresso Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2007
Not sure about these; very strange batter for a cookie, making them turn out very flat. Taste is great, very rich and chocolately. When cooled I pressed a chocolate covered espresso bean in the middle. Definitely gets your heart pumping!

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2007
Definitely add mini chocolate chips! Too plain for my taste without the chips. Good soft cookie, icing came out well. Followed recipe exactly, wouldn't make any changes. Coworkers love them.

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2006
needed more spices; garlic, italian seasoning in bread crumbs. Use boneless thighs or breasts or drumsticks.

Honey Lime Tilapia

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2006
2 stars - edible. Would not make again. The asparagus held a very unusual sweet taste from the honey, and the cheese seemed out of place. Fish was fine but did not seem to go with the squash and marinade combo.

Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2006
Lots of potential. It was definitely too salty. I suggest using sodium free/low sod. beef broth in place of water & bouillon, and cutting the salt in rub in half. Chops were very tender and tasted wonderful. Used stock to make gravy. Will definitely make again with above mentioned modifications.
