Real N'awlins Muffuletta

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2002
I am a New Orlean's Central Grocery Muffeletta fan. This recipe was great!! Almost as terrific as Central Grocery's version. Maybe better, because I made it fresh!! My husband and I savored every bite. My daughter liked it on a Hawaiin Bread Roll, with a sweetness to it. My son is not an olive fan. That's o.k., more for me to eat!! Will definitely make this again.

London Broil I

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2006
Very tasty, my family enjoyed it, and very easy to prepare and grill. I added about 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar to aide in tenderizing the meat and flavor. I found that I needed to grill the steak 10-14 minutes per side in order to have it done, still pink inside.

Shrimp Scampi III

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2006
This was a quick and easy recipe. I used 1/2 the butter and added olive oil in its place. I love garlic so I did not throw it out after sauteeing it in the butter/olive oil. I also added in some fresh cauliflower which was a very nice addition.

House Fried Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2006
This is a great recipe. My teenage son and his friend loved it, me too. I used brown rice for a higher fiber content than white rice. I used brocolli instead of bell pepper & green peas, since that was what I had at home. I didn't use chicken breast since there was plenty of protein between the shrimp and ham. This is an easy recipe and I will definitly make this again.

Shrimp and Crab Enchiladas

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2006
My husband, son and I liked this recipe very much. I will definitely use this recipe again. I added leftover Indian Style basmati rice to the inside of the rolled tortilla. I used only shrimp, since that was what I had in the house. I precooked the shrimp with onions, garlic & lemon juice. I cut up the shrimps in medium chunks to help in the rolling up of the tortilla. Being lactose intolerant I put mozzorella cheese on top of the tortillas, during the last 5 minutes of baking, so everyone knew which had the cheese and which didn't.

Paul's Pumpkin Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2007
My husband & I thought this recipe was delicious. The taste was wonderful even without the frosting. We liked the 'cake' texture of this recipe. I used fresh pumpkin pie filling, only 3 eggs, 1/4 cup of applesauce substituted for some of the oil, 1/2 cup whole wheat flour the rest unbleached white flour, 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice, & 1 tsp vanilla.

Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
These cookies turned out very good for my holiday cut out cookies. I used vanilla instead of almond flavoring. This is a very simple recipe.

Caesar Salad Supreme

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2008
I liked this recipe very much. I used half of the garlic as suggested. I love garlic and I thought this change still allowed for a wonderful garlic flavor to the salad. I made the croutons using day old grocery store garlic breadsticks. I heated them up in the toaster oven until they were crunchy,around 10 minutes. I didn't use oil to make these croutons and they turned out wonderful. I didn't use anchovies either. My teenage son who doesn't like mayonnaise didn't like this recipe unfortunately.

Poppy Seed Bread

Reviewed: May 14, 2009
My husband, son and I enjoyed this poppy seed bread very much. I used plain soy milk instead of regular milk to make the recipe lactose free. I cut down the sugar to 1 1/2 cups and used twice as much poppy seed, as recommended. Instead of butter flavor I used lemon extract. I'll definitely make this recipe again.

Wilted Spinach

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
My husband and I really liked this dish and will make it again. I used canola oil by mistake, but it still was delicious. I'll try it with olive oil next time. I didn't use nuts, and I didn't miss them. I also recommend making 1/2 the dressing or increasing the amount of spinach to a full bag of spinach, which is what I had on hand.

Ginger Veggie Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
This is great if you like vegetarian. I added tofu, mushrooms, sugar snap peas instead of green beans, extra garlic & soy sauce. Use what ever fresh veggies you have available. I didn't add salt since soy sauce has enough salt. I mixed the water, cornstarch, and soy sauce together after cooking the veggies, and then added it at the end of cooking. I served this dish over quinoa, but rice would work too.

Cream Cheese Penguins

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
These were a "hit" at our gathering of adults. They are very cute and fun to make. Allow yourself some time to make these. Making 1/2 of the recipe, I added 2 teaspoons of powdered Ranch Dressing to 4 ounces of cream cheese, which adds a nice flavor. I used a sturdy plastic zip lock bag for the cream cheese mixture. Cutting off a small corner allows you to easily squeeze the cream cheese mixture into the penguins body.

Easy Key Lime Pie I

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
This was a delicious key lime pie with a nice lime flavor, sweet and rich. I used fresh squeezed limes and followed the original recipe, rather than doubling it as other reviewers did. Therefore I used a smaller store bought graham cracker pie crust. I used the 5 egg whites to make a meringue topping, baking 10 minutes without the merinque(to cook the filling) and another 10 minutes with the meringue topping. The meringue topping made the pie look beautiful as well as taste great. I'll definitely make this pie again when I have a group to bake for.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
This is a very tasty and easy recipe. I cut back the oil to 1/2 cup oil adding in 1/2 cup applesauce. I also cut back the sugar to 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 cup of sugar.

Excellent and Healthy Cornbread

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
I used "rice drink" instead of milk since I am lactose intolerant. My husband and I thought it turned out very good. I definitely would make this recipe again.

Pecan Pie III

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
This pie was delicious, although a little dense to cut through on the day I made it. The day after the texture lightened and was great. I used a pre-made graham cracker crust so to keep this pie lactose free. I used 1 1/4 cups of chopped pecans. I may have over baked the pie by 15 minutes(in my convection oven) since I forgot to check the pie after 30 minutes as suggested. I will make this pie again.

Beet Salad with Goat Cheese

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2010
My husband, daughter and I liked this salad very much. It is a nice light tasting dressing, great for the summer time. I cut the beets in small chunks in order for them to cook quicker. I substituted fresh squeezed orange and sliced almonds since that was what I had in my kitchen.

Blackberry Cobbler II

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2010
This is an excellent fruit cobbler recipe. I've made it with blueberries once and fresh peaches another time. My family and guests enjoyed it very much both times. For a 9 x 13 pan I doubled the amount of fresh peaches, but not the sauce. I'll definitely will use this recipe again for fruit cobbler.

Bacon Turnip Mash

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2010
This was a delicious side dish, alternative to mashed potatoes. My husband also enjoyed this tasty dish. I used precooked bacon to avoid a mess in my kitchen and omitted the bacon fat. I drained the water out of the cooked turnips before adding the seasoning, I'll definitely make this again.

Butternut Squash Soup II

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
This soup was enjoyed by everyone during our Thanksgiving meal. It was easy and quick to make, once I had homemade chicken broth prepared. I didn't have time to blenderize the soup, so instead I just mashed it with a potato masher. Everyone liked the texture of the soup instead of a thick liquid from the blender. I added a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg, which added a nice fall flavor. I'll definitely make this recipe again.
