World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2012
This is a REALLY good lasagna, and my dinner party raved about it. However I made it with 2 lbs of ground beef and no sausage or fennel seeds, because that's what I had in the house. I also used oven-ready lasagna noodles. It's so much easier than par-cooking regular ones! Cooking the lasagna with tin foil for the first half of the cooking is a great idea, then you don't have any crispy noodle edges! I will DEFINITELY make this recipe again!

Rolled Flank Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
I enjoyed this recipe and will probably make it again, but next time I will use ham or Canadian bacon instead of regular bacon. The flavor was too much and I do not care for bacon this way. It was transparent and chewy.

Ladyfinger Cheesecake

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2010
This is a great cheesecake, however I use powdered (confectioner's) sugar instead of regular sugar. I think it sweetens things like cream cheese and whipping cream much better, without the gritty taste that you can get with granulated sugar. Also, I topped my cheesecake with crushed pineapple, draining it first of course!

Sweet and Sour Pork III

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2010
This is a really good recipe. I used cooked boneless pork loin that I had in the fridge, so I skipped the marinating/cooking part for the pork. I also added 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar instead of 1/3 cup just to give it more tang and less of a sweet taste. I will definitely make this recipe again!

Passover Chocolate Cheesecake

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
This is a very good cheesecake, however it was not done after 40 min. at a 375 degree oven. I cooked it for another 15 min. (55 min in total) and the cheesecake was done but the crust was a little dark. The next time (and there will be a next time) I will either lower the temp to 350 and cook for 55 min or cook it in a water bath at 375 and check at 40 min, and see if it needs more cooking. Another option might be to cook for 40 minutes and then turn the oven off and leave it in there for an hour. It really is too good to not try again.

Marie-Claude's Orange Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
This is not a good cake. First, DON'T put it in a 9 x 13 pan, there is not enough batter. There is barely enough batter for a 9 x 9 pan and it's a very flat cake when it finishes baking. Second, it is way too sweet and maybe (I say maybe) if you use Seville oranges, like you would use to make marmalade it might be more orangey tasting and better. I would not make it again.

French Toast Souffle

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
This tastes great! I made a few minor changes based on previous reviews. Nothing major, just what seemed to work for other people. I didn't make it overnight because I didn't have the time. I made it the morning of, and let the ingredients soak together for about 45 minutes before putting it in the oven. I used French bread. I added 1/2 stick of butter, because other reviews said it made a difference, plus I increased the vanilla to 1 tsp. and added 1 tsp. of cinnamon. Also, I didn't have maple syrup in the house, so I used honey. Again, this was a GREAT recipe and everyone in our house LOVED it! I will definitely make it again!

Mix-Easy Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2008
These cookies are so good and so easy! Thank you! I think I'm going to try a chocolate cake mix next and add chocolate chips

Barbequed Cabbage

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2008
This was very good and my family enjoyed it. However, I did use low sodium soy sauce and I did not add the extra salt, just a little pepper. I also added chopped onions to the cabbage. It was good!

Carrot Soup 'a la Louise'

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2007
This is a wonderful recipe! I used the ingredients that I had on hand, which means that I used reduced sodium chicken broth (and I would again) and half and half instead of whipping cream. I also didn't have any marjoram or dill weed, but didn't miss it at all. I also pureed the soup prior to adding the corn starch and half and half. I would definitely make this again!

Amish Slaw

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2006
Great cole slaw. I used a one lb. bag of cole slaw mix instead of chopping up the cabbage. I also used 3/4 cup of sugar instead of 1 cup, as suggested in another review. I made the recipe approx. 6 hours before I served it, instead of refrigerating overnight. The flavor was still great, but I think it did taste better the next day. Also, it was a little watery, so I probably could have used 1 1/2 bags of slaw. I just poured the excess liquid away.

Banana Cake II

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2006
This recipe is very good - BUT - the timing is all wrong for cooking it. If you're making the layer cake as I did, cook for 35-40 minutes, it is not done in 17-20 minutes. I assume the 9x13 cake will cook in 17-20 minutes.

Shredded Beef

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2005
What a great recipe! I made it for NY's day for a crowd, so I bought 6 lbs and meat and adjusted the ingredients accordingly. I also used Montreal Steak seasoning. There was a little too much liquid when it was done, but I just poured the extra away, no problem! I will definitely make this again.

Rosemary Braised Lamb Shanks

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2005
I actually used veal for this recipe, plus I used bottled herbs, not fresh and reduced the amount. My husband thought it was fantastic, but I'm glad I added the small can of tomato paste as recommended in other reviews. It was definitely needed.

Artichoke Rice Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2004
This recipe is really, really good! Okay, I did cheat a bit and I used Rice a Roni Rice Pilaf (2 boxes). Plus, I used 2 large cans of artichokes, in water, not oil. And, since I like the taste of curry, I used 2 teaspoons, instead of one. Finally, I made it at approx. 1 p.m. and served it for dinner at 7 p.m. It was GREAT

Green Bean Blue Cheese Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2004
I thought this recipes and the blended flavors were very good, however the next time I make it (and there will be lots of next times), I will not use the olive oil/balsamic vinegar for the dressing. The blue cheese tends to be strong to the point of overpowering depending on what brand you use, and I felt that the taste of the blue cheese and the balsamic vinegar were "fighting" for supremacy in this salad. I will use a light Italian, Greek or plain oil and vinegar next time.

Asian Turkey Barbecue on Sesame Scallion Toasts

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2003
Wow! This recipe is fantastic! Since we like Port of Subs & Subway sandwiches, the only change I made was that we used hoagie/submarine rolls instead of English muffins. I would definitely make this recipe again. Maybe next time, over rice with egg rolls on the side!
