New Potatoes with Caper Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2014
This is wonderful without so much butter! Can cut butter by more than 1/2 & even use some extra virgin olive oil w/ it. Even w/o vinegar it's great!

Easy Apple Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2014
I'm writing just to say what finally worked for me to keep this from sticking to pan & cracking. Let pan cool on a rack for ONLY 10-15 minutes. Then as precaution, I also went around edges & middle (Bundt pan). No cracks or sticking! Because I changed this, the rating doesn't accurately depict the original recipe. I used cream cheese instead of sour cream, cheesecake instant pudding instead of vanilla, used 4 c. of apple chunks & stirred them in & added 1 t. vanilla.

Cinnamon Orange Turkey Scaloppini

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2014
5* with suggestions of viewers doubling the juices & 5* because it's easy & tasty. I also pounded the cutlets thinner. Watch near end so it doesn't burn. I've made twice & both times used orange juice concentrate: 1/2 c. concentrate to 1/2 c. water = 1 c.& 2 T. lemon juice.

Simple Roasted Butternut Squash

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2014
Yes, it's simple & very good. I did think it needed a bit more garlic than my original sprinkling of garlic powder which I substituted for the fresh garlic. You might also want to check to see if it's done in 20 minutes.

Mexican Corn on the Cob (Elote)

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2013
Delicious. I cut the corn off the cob after grilling & mixed in the other ingredients. Didn't have cotija cheese so I substituted fresh parmesan. Good w/o the lime, which I didn't have on hand. Grilling until lightly charred added a delicious element to the corn! P.S I'm not an EXPERT as I accidently used in my profile. Must figure out how to change.

Fig and Arugula Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2013
Surprisingly very good for the few ingredients & ease of preparation. I made a dab more dressing because I like a little more dressing. Also works well with baby spinach & toasted pecans.

GA Peach Pound Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2013
1. Further comments after husband had eaten several slices,"Why is it grainy?" Well, it's the sugar-coating from the pan, which I don't think adds anything. Next time, I'll grease & flour as I do for all the other pound cakes. 2. Depending on sweetness of peaches, you may want to adjust the amount of sugar. My peaches weren't quite sweet enough, so I added maybe 3 T.

Olive Cheese Appetizers

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2013
This was great WITH additions, some which have been mentioned. I used Mexican 4-Cheese, a few hardy shakes of garlic & onion powder + some red pepper & then only 1/2 t. paprika. After mixing the dough, just taste it & adjust seasonings. I made some w/ stuffed green olives, well dried off & some I stuffed w/ pecan halves. I rolled the pecans into logs instead of balls. BTW, I've had a similar recipe for yrs. that calls for 1/2 c. chopped pecans in the dough & no stuffing. The dough is formed into 2 logs (1 1/2 in. diameter) & chilled until firm & then sliced to cook, 400 degrees for 10 minutes.

Cabbage Jambalaya

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2013
Very good, especially with some additions suggested from others plus my own: Less meat. Add green pepper, more garlic, dried basil, dried oregano, broth in place of water & Creole seasoning in place of garlic salt. My sausage was smoked sausage from So. LA.

O'Brian's Potato Casserole

Reviewed: May 12, 2012
Always good. Can use any shredded cheese. Can use crushed crackers, buttery or other for corn flakes which I never have. The diff in this recipe & another on-site is that there's no need to cover. I always use a TOTAL of 1/2 c. butter & it's just as good.

Holiday Ham Slices

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2011
Oh, so very easy & tasty! I followed the recipe but when I tasted the simmered sauce, I decided to increase all it's ingredients except the onion (mine were strong); just didn't seem like enough to cover the ham. At that point I added extra Dijon & a little white wine vinegar for extra kick & doubled the brown sugar for more flavor. This is one of those recipes that you can vary the ingredients to taste & still have the original ntent of the recipe.

Hawaiian Wedding Cake II

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
Ingredients: need clarifications. Directions: Not so great. I drained the STUFFING out of pineapple & that was a mistake! Better ingredients/directions, in my opinion: Only SLIGHTLY drain pineapple. Use ONLY 1 cup cold milk in pudding (or topping will lack flavor if use the 2 cups per pudding directions). Toasted pecans are much better. Cherries, are optional. REVISED DIRECTIONS: Prepare cake mix according to directions EXCEPT USE THAT DRAINED JUICE for part of water. Be sure to bake in right size pan, 10 x 15 (jellyroll), for around 20 minutes, but toothpick test in center at 15. Don't ovecook. Allow to cool. Poke holes in cake & spread pineapple & its remaining juice over cake. In bowl beat the SOFTENED cream cheese. Then add pudding mix & only 1 cup cold milk & beat till thickened a little. Top cake with this mixture. (No need to fold in Cool Whip.) Now top with Cool Whip. Sprinkle with coconut, chopped toasted nuts & if desired, drained cherries. I used some canned cherry pie filling instead. Refrigerate. Best next day.

Onion Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
A very good alternative to the sweet recipes for sweet potatoes. Thought the dry onion soup mix was a bit strong so may use a little less next time & substitute a little onion powder or other seasoning. Also added black pepper. Way I prepared to hasten timing: Precooked the potatoes in the Microwave on Hight for 5 minutes. Then mixed & cooked in oven only 20 minutes. This way should solve the complaints of some that the onions were too crisp or burned. Husband liked better than the sweet recipes.

Onion Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2010
I believe this is too much butter & I love butter! I've had this recipe by the title, "Golden Baked Onions," a few years but mine only calls for 1 stick butter (1/2 C.) plus some extra melted to dip the bread slices on one side. Follow the recipe and then arrange bread buttered side up with other half down in the onion mix so that slices overlap. Excellent with 12 oz. Swiss or Gruyere shredded with some reserved for the top. Add the reserved cheese the last 10 minutes of cooking.

Colorful Spinach and Prosciutto Side

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
As suggested by the author, I added cheese to the top - fresh grated Parmesan & as another suggested, I added feta (mine was reduced fat) in the dish. Since I happened to have a 14 oz can of artichoke hearts & no jar of marinated one, I drained those & used extra olive oil & some red wine vinegar to the skillet. Then I followed directions. After removing vegetables from the heat, I stirred in some crumbled feta & transferred all to a baking dish. Topped w/cheese & broiled on Low a few minutes.

Baked Shells in Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
Only after some changes & additions would I rate this 5* because I think it would be bland as written. I used the "calculate" button for 5 servings. What I changed, using some others suggestions & my own ways: Increased the amt. of pasta even a bit more. Used penne instead of shells which gave the dish more substance & chewines. Cooked al dente a must! Used good spaghetti sauce instead of tomato. Used portabello mushrooms since that's what I had. Increased amt. of tofu even a bit more. Sauted mushrooms & tofu in a little olive oil. Added drained artichokes, sliced & some roasted red pepper (from a jar), diced. Topped w/ more cheese - freshly grated Parmesan. Still was an easy, quick main dish & very yummy!

Zucchini Cornbread

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2010
This would probably be 5 stars without my tweaking, if just a bit less favorful. I used yellow summer squash (but don't think that mattered), adding approximately 1/8 c. more squash. I used half the salt & added a little Cajun seasoning. For half the onion I substituted crushed French onions from a can. Very tasty & moist!

Apple Crisp III

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2009
I've basically made this same recipe several times from directions a neighbor gave me which are more simple plus the topping stays crisp longer. Place apples & water in pan. Pour or pat butter over top. Mix dry ingredients & sprinkle on. DELICIOUS & EASIER!

Fresh Apple Cake II

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
The most "apple" taste of the apple cakes! I've been making this for years with great reviews. The only differences in my recipe: 1 tsp soda instead of 2, Granny Smith apples, FINELY chopped, 3 tsp cinnamon instead of 2 & I use pecans. For those who take issue with the sweetness, too much vanilla or soda-like taste, using my recipe will address those problems. Granny Smiths are very tart (especially the greenest ones). By the way, vanilla is known to impart an impression of sweetness. I sometimes bake it in a tube pan for 1 hr. 10 minutes. And I've never needed icing (& I love icing!) Great with vanilla caramel ice cream.
