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.

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.

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.

Baba Ghanoush

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2011
Amazing! The key is broiling the eggplant in the oven 30-40 minutes, turning every 5 minutes, until cooked well and the skin is charred all over. Scoop out the eggplant, put in a bowl and let the water drain out. Dispose of water. I used 1 small-medium sized eggplant, 1 clove garlic, 1 1/2 tsp tehina and 1 1/2 tspn lemon, salt and pepper to taste. I'll be making this again soon!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
This is very good and easy to make. I don't have a crock pot so I cooked everything on my stove top in a pot. I used my favorite BBQ sauce(Sweet Baby Ray's) which is sweet, therefore I didn't add any brown sugar. My husband and 21 year old son really enjoyed this dish. I'll definitely make this again, for a fast meal.

Chicken Tortilla Soup V

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2011
Delicious, quick and easy to make. I didn't add any shortening and the dipping went fine without it. I microwaved the chips in a small deep bowl for 2 minutes, checking every 30 seconds to see if the chips were melting and give them a stir. I put the dipped strawberries on parchment paper to cool the chocolate before putting them in the refrigerator to harden. I made a batch with 6 oz of semi sweet choco chips and a 2 oz batch with 60% cacao choco chips, which my husband likes.

Vegan Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
This recipient was delicious. My husband and I really couldn't tell that these were vegan. I'm lactose intolerant and my husband wants me to cook more vegan, so I'll use this recipie again. I used 3/4 cup of almond milk with 1/2 cup of water, 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour with 1 cup unbleached white flour, 1 tsp of lemon juice, 1/4 tsp of cinnamon. Next time I will try vanilla too.
