Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
Even though I read over and over that this was not a good recipe for cut-outs, I decided that I liked the recipe and would try it anyway. The result was the best sugar cookie I have ever made! I made the dough as written and then let it chill in the fridge for 5-6 hrs. I let it warm to room temp. and kneaded it for a while. Perfect consistency to make cut-outs. I only baked these for about 7 minutes. I love these because they stay chewy and don't get rock hard like the others. I am very excited about this recipe and will use it for all my holidays cookies. I used "Luscious Buttercream Frosting" from this site as suggested by another reviewer and it was fabulous.

Marinated Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2008
This is the best marinated mushroom recipe I have found. I prepare the recipe and let it marinate overnight. It really brings out the wonderful flavors. Will make again and again!

Ricotta Gnocchi

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2008
REAL authentic Italian taste. I did not find this too cheesy, as some other reviewers did. I found the mozzarella made it perfect. It is also sooo simple to make.

Gingered Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2008
Tastes like it came straight out of a real Chinese restaurant, only fresher. I added some yellow onions and red peppers, and it was outstanding. So easy to make, although I did have to cook my meat for much longer than the recipe suggested.

Spiced Pot Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2008
This was soooo good and so easy to make. My two year old gobbled it up and so did we! The meat was very very tender. I used apple pear chutney and followed the recipe to a T. Definitely going into the rotation.

Greek Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2008
This was pretty good. Definitely needed the feta cheese. I also don't think it was entirely necessary to blanch the tomatoes.

Pumpkin Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2008
Love this recipe. I was hesitant at first, but brought it to a family party. Everyone loved it, expecially my super picky brother. It is so unique! I kept everything exactly the same as written.

Amazing Italian Lemon Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2008
Ok, this is very good. However, I am giving it 4 stars because the prep and cooking time is WAY off. I'd like to know who can prepare this from start to finish in 30 minutes! Also, how do you cook the bacon? (I stuck mine in the microwave). The sauce takes a really long time, and I don't know if all that butter is needed. I was cursing myself for choosing this, but when I tasted it, I was quite impressed. My husband said this was the best pasta he's ever eaten. I would say that it's worth the effort. Just be weary of the cooking times!

Citrus-Basil Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2009
Awesome! Served with mixed greens, gorgonzola, blackberries, and walnuts. My 2 year old was dipping her lettuce in this before she ate it. Didn't change a thing!

Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2008
This was really good hearty soup! My husband is from the Ukraine and he had two servings. I did add more chicken broth to mine because my husband likes it thinner and I increased the spices to compensate. I let it sit for awhile after I put the mushrooms as suggested by another reviewer to get more mushroom flavor. I really don't think the half and half/ flour mixture is even needed to thicken this soup up. I will be making this recipe again!

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
This was so good and easy! I made the meatballs ahead of time an just threw them in when it was time. Be sure to buy very lean ground beef as it can make the sauce slightly greasy. Just think of all the grease on the pan when you bake meatballs and then think of it in the sauce. I am giving it 4 stars because it was delicious and simple to make if you subtract the time it took to strain a lot of fat off the top of the sauce.

Maple Dill Carrots

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
This was unbelievably good! So easy and I always have these ingredients on hand. My 3 and 1 year old loved it too. Who knew that these ingredients would come together to taste so good? Followed this exactly. Thank you so much!

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2009
Excellent...followed another reviewer's suggestion to make a foil pouch for the fish. It was wonderful although I did cook it longer than was suggested. The best part was that the skin just stuck to the foil after it was done!

Grilled Tilapia with Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2009

Puppy Chow

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
I can't get enough of this stuff! I made it for my daughter's Valentine's party at school. I added 1/4 cup butter to the peanut butter and chocolate recipe and melted it in the microwave. I coated the cereal with the mixture using gloved hands (easier than a spoon), then laid it on wax paper for about 30 minutes. I only used 1 cup of powdered sugar and that was more than enough to coat it! Will make this for many years to come.

Claire's Yummy Crepes

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
I don't know if I did something wrong, but my crepes can out way too rubbery. The only changes I made was to add 1 tsp. of vanilla. Will keep looking for crepe recipes.

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake

Penne with Pink Vodka Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2008
Delicious sauce! I must warn though that this is WAY too much sauce for a pound of penne pasta! I froze more than half of it. I also used 1/2 cup of vodka (Not by choice-my husband drank it all!) and it was still wonderful!
