Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2002
This bread is PHENOMENAL! I was a little nervous at its consistency as during the preparation phase, it doesn't resemble a typical bread loaf. It was more like very loose chocolate chip cookie dough, but that's ok -- that's the way it should be. This was delicious beyond words and is now a part of my permanent recipe collection.

Watermelon Fire and Ice Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2007
I could easily eat this every day! Fresh and light, it tricks everyone into thinking it is tomato salsa, but IT'S NOT! Great with chips, but delicious with quesadillas, fish, or chicken. A great recipe that you just have to try.

Delicious Pineapple Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2007
I followed Tunisianwife's suggestion and added pineapple to the batter along with nutmeg and vanilla. I also did not melt the butter for the topping but used room temperature butter. Baked the large muffins for 37 minutes, regular size for 30 minutes and they were all gone in minutes. Delicious! I am so glad that I added the extra pineapple to the batter as it was a light, sweet flavor. Thanks!

Insalata Caprese I

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2008
I had some extra fresh basil from another recipe this week and was trying to think of what I could make. I didn't want to slice tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil and lay them out in something time consuming and fancy for just us and so I found this recipe. I had some mozzarella in the fridge, but next time I will definitely use fresh mozzarella. i also used grape tomatoes as they were on sale and the dish was delicious. Never had it with balsamic before and it was great.

Easy Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2008
An incredibly easy to follow and came out so GOOD! I used chipotle seasoned kielbasa, a purple pepper (that's what I had on hand), salsa instead of the canned tomatoes, and cajun seasoning -- all recommendations from a previous poster and what a great result - see my picture! It took me no time to prepare and it was a hit. This is an easy dish that will have everyone thinking you worked far harder on it than you actually did. Thanks for a great recipe.

Spicy Sausage and Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2009
Simple, easy to make, and I was pleased with the results. I used a red pepper, spicy chicken sausage, and a 5 oz. package of yellow rice. I also added one can of black beans. It came out great and not dry -- exactly as I wanted it so I am glad I used a little less rice. I used to casserole dishes that I sprayed a little Pam in first before baking. Thanks!

Best Yet Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
Super good and super fast! Cooked the ground turkey with an onion (no pepper in the house) and then put the spices in before adding beans, corn, and tomatoes. I just got habanero chili powder, which smelled great and was nice to use. I used a smaller can of tomatoes and about 1/2 jar of salsa to make up for the liquid. I also added some sliced jalapenos and used about 1 1/2 tsp. of cumin and about 1 T. of the chili powder. Let it cook for about 2 hours and it was a big hit. Thanks for the great recipe!

White Chocolate Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2007
Great recipe! I love the orange flavor with the white chocolate and I think it is a sexy adult cookie. Kids may not like it, but c'mon -- they have enough cookies of their own! :) Included this in my Christmas cookie baskets and people loved them.

Ritz Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2009
Nice and easy cookie to make and took the suggestion of adding cinnamon. I had quite a few leftover eggs from making "coquito" (eggnog) and used this recipe to use the egg whites. I baked some on parchment paper and some on a Silpat and the ones on parchment turned out far superior. I baked them for about 8 minutes each, let them sit on the cookie sheet for about 1-2 minutes, and then transferred to a wire rack to cool. Thanks!

Barbecued Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2003
Great recipe! As a vegetarian, I don't mind making meat dishes for my husband, but often haven't a clue as to what he might like. This recipe had great reviews so I thought I would try it out. I used half of the required meat and kept everything else the same. My husband and our dogs were drooling while the meat cooked all day in the crockpot. When it was done, he said not to change a thing! Next time I might put it in a tortilla for him as a wrap. Thanks again for such a good recipe!

Coconut Curry Tofu

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2003
YUMMY! If you are afraid to stir fry or make Thai food, then this is the recipe for you! So super easy to make and it comes out tasting super delicious! My local corner market didn't have bok choy so I substituted equal amounts of fresh broccoli and green beans and it came out phenomenal! I will make this again and again! My husband is not a vegetarian and didn't mind the tofu, but I could see this being good with chicken or pork or tempeh instead. Thanks for the great recipe!

Orange Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2003
Wonderful! This is the first bundt cake I have made and I even went out and bought a special pan just to make this cake. Yes, everyone says it doesn't taste like an orange cake, but maybe you could call it a citrus flavored cake. I enjoyed it so much that I made two on Sunday to give away to friends. It's easy to make and a foolproof cake that tastes fantastic, but even better the second day. I cover a cake pan with foil and place my cooling rack on top with the cake to cool. When it is completely cool, I use an eyedropper to put the glaze on the cake. It gives me complete control as to where I want the glaze to go and I can pull up the little run off that collects on the foil with the eyedropper. Yummy!

Southern Praline Pecan Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2003
An unbelievably easy cake to make that my husband says is the best cake I have ever made. I will cut back on the oil next time, but other than that it is perfect as is. I did use the Butter Pecan cake mix and the required frosting. If you can't find them in your store, try Netgrocer.com or another online shopping site to get the right cake mix. This is a keeper.

Easy and Delicious Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2004
Love this recipe!!! Could not be any easier, even with the substitutions I made from using what I had in the house. I used frozen chicken breasts and added what was left of the Italian dressing bottle and 3/4 bottle of roasted red pepper dressing. When the kids came home from school, I swear they were drooling. Drained off almost all, but not all of the dressing and mixed in a can of cream of mushroom soup with roasted garlic, about 2 oz. cream cheese and 4 T. sour cream, 1 cup vegetable broth, and they loved it!!! Looked like a chicken strogranoff over noodles. Everyone devoured it and couldn't wait to tear into it the next day for leftovers, which usually never happens. Definitely a keeper!

Best Ever Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2005
This recipe has made me a star at my husband's place of employment! I have made loads of different kinds of food for him to take in, but this is what they consistently request. I usually make the cheddar cheese AND bacon muffins in the oversized muffin tins, which are a tremendous hit. Only modification, of course, is to bake them longer. Easy to make, they look spectacular, and are great food for on the go.

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2005
This is one of those recipes that when you first look at it, you wonder why someone would put these ingredients together. I was desperate to find something to make for dinner at 1:30 pm that I could quickly throw in the slow cooker. I used four skinless frozen chicken breasts and then mixed the other ingredients over the top and put it on low for a few hours. My son and his two cousins were my dinner guests and they devoured all of the chicken possibly faster than I have seen them eat anything and asked for more! Great recipe!

Easy Broccoli Quiche

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2010
Easy recipe to follow that makes a great quiche. I made two quiches by increasing the eggs and adding in some turkey bacon (4 slices crumbled) and some crab meat. Used swiss and shredded cheddar, too, and seasoned with Italian seasoning and red pepper flakes. My husband and son both loved it - what a surprise!

Magic Peanut Butter Middles

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2006
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this recipe! I have to say that this is one of the easier Christmas cookies I have ever made. I made the filling first and stuck it in the fridge while mixing up the cookie batter. Based on suggestions and opinions here, I added 2 T. sour cream to the batter and to make it more chocolatey, I added 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips. Once that was done, I then rolled the filling into balls and put them back in the fridge. I floured my hands and made small patties in the palm of my hand with a dent in the middle for the filling, put the filling in, and then rolled them like when you make meatballs. No filling seeped out, 30 cookies, and incredibly delicious. I am just trying to figure out how to hide them from the kids and me before handing out to friends and family.

London Broil I

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2006
Today was the very first time I have ever tried to make London Broil and what a great recipe this is! Easy to make and the marinade absolutely penetrated the meat. I had a 1.25 lb. piece of meat which I scored on both sides before marinating. I put all of the marinade ingredients directly into a Ziploc bag and then added the meat and marinated the meat all day. I followed the suggestion of adding the balsamic vinegar and added 1 T. Worcestershire sauce and 1 tsp. rosemary. I grilled the meat in my Cuisinart Griddler for 9 minutes total and let sit for 10 minutes before slicing. Rare in the middle, tender, and juicy. Everyone loved it and I will definitely make this again!
