Grandma Bellows' Lemony Shrimp Macaroni Salad with Herbs

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2010
This has been my basic macaroni salad recipe for almost 40 years. I use more hard boiled eggs, frozen salad shrimp, omit the dill and use MiracleWhip in place of the mayo. It's the only time I ever use Miracle Whip! Make it a day ahead, except for the shrimp as the flavors meld and the macaroni tends to absorb the MW, you may need to add a bit more. Then gently fold the shrimp in before serving.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies II

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2009
These are very good. I made them in the mini muffin pan which makes them just the right size. I found the recipe made a lot more than stated. I ran out of mini pbutter cups so I started topping them with a mix of chocolate chips and pbuter chips. Not as great as the pbutter cups, but not a bad substitute. The cookies froze quite well too. I will make these again.

Elegant Fig Appetizers with Goat Cheese and Almonds

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2008
Heavenly. Our tree produces very big figs, so I needed more goat cheese. I had a Late Harvest Reisling Vinegar that I used in place of the Balsamic. So easy and just outstanding.

Spring Strawberry Salad with Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
Great salad. I just made it for a baby shower and everyone was raving about it. It was easy to make and did not require a lot of last minute preparation. I will certainly make this again.

Mexican Vegetable Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
My husband really liked this. I used chicken broth instead of vegetable and I used fresh sliced carrots (par-cooked) and frozen peas. It went very well with the Southwestern stuffed chicken brests and cornbread.

Never Bitter Lemonade

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
A nice starting point recipe. I like the idea of boiling the water with the sugar. It allows the sugar to dissolve so much better. I used much less sugar because I was using Myer lemons from my tree and, after reading the Ginger Lemonade recipe, I decided to make a second ginger infused syrup that could be added to the Lemonade if desired. So I did not want the Lemonade to be overly sweet. I also made a Pomegranate Syrup and served it an the Ginger syrup in little pitchers to be added to the lemonade. Worked great and was very popular.

Roquefort Grapes

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
I made these for a party and they were pretty well received. The general opinion was that the cheese mixture would be better on olives instead of the grapes. I did not have almonds so I did part of them with walnuts and part of them with pecans (both toasted) The recipe makes a large batch and they could be made at least a day ahead and kept refrigerated.

Andie's Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
Very good filling. I used Italian sausage in place of the ground beef. It made more filling than I could use in the mushrooms. I put it on sliced french bread and heated those in the oven- yum!

Creamy Coconut Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
This is coconut cream pie in a cake!! Very good, but best after at least a day in the fridge. We used lightly sweetened whip cream and toasted coconut. Perfect.

Ganache I

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
Very good, very easy. I used it on the Too Much Chocolate Cake from this site. Makes a pretty big batch, probably 1/3 batch would have been plenty for the Bundt style cake.

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2009
These are super. They are not too sweet, so I think they are a great addition to the holiday cookie assortment. The colors are very festive too. A little dip in white or dark chocolate is a nice addition. My Sicilian husband approved!

GA Peach Pound Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2012
I don't think I would give this such a high review if I made it just as written, but with some of the adjustments others made and a couple of my own, it really is outstanding. I added 1/2 tsp. each of cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom and almond extract. To boost the peach flavor, I tossed the peach chunks with a couple of teaspoons of Peach Snapps and I also added 1 Tbs. Peach Snapps to the cake batter. I also added a caramel glaze as another review mentioned. I did add some salt to the caramel. The cake has a very nice texture and I highly recommend you make it a day ahead as the favors develop as the cake sits. I will certainly add this cake to my favorites.

Banana Butterscotch Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
Very good, we really enjoyed the combination of butterscotch flavor with the banana. Nice moist loaves, I will make this again. As with most banana bread, better the second day.

Gooey Chip Bars

They are sweet and they are gooey, but I was underwhelmed. Don't think I will make these again, nothing special.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2010
OUTSTANDING!! The only change that I made was to use bacon (3 thick slices cut up) in place of the bacon bits. I cooked the bacon until crisp, then drained it and used the bacon fat to saute the onions, pepper, celery, etc. This stuff just got better each day. The reaction I got was OMG! from each person who tried it! This will be my go to recipe for chili from now on

Perfect Cherry Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2010
I follwed the proportions from this and the filling was way too thick. The flavor was great, but really wtch how much you thicken the filling. I think I would also add a little more almond extract.

Peach Salsa II

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2009
Very tasty, but with the pectin added it came out a little too thick, more like a salsa jam. I agree it is better as a meat condiment than a dipping salsa. Also great on cream cheese.
