Fresh Strawberry Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2014
This is a variation of the old Pillsbury Strawberry Shortcut Cake that has been around for over 30 years. The original was a made from scratch cake. It called for mixing two 10 oz. pkgs. frozen sliced strawberries with juice, thawed, with one 3-oz. pkg. jello in bowl. Let sit while you prepare cake. Then you put only 1 c. marshmallows (I used 2 c.) in bottom of well-greased 13x9 pan, mixed the cake, and poured it over the marshmallows. Finally, pour the strawberry mixture evenly over the cake batter. Bake about 40-50 minutes at 350°. It did not call for turning the cake out of the pan.

Boston Brown Bread III

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2014
Good, but definitely NOT traditional Boston Brown Bread. The traditional bread uses several grains and is steamed, not baked.

Noodles Alfredo

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2012
This is an excellent recipe, with the reduction of butter to 1/4 c. or less. I can tell from their comments that a lot of people probably used Kraft Parmesan in the can. You cannot use that junk in recipes! That's a topping only! You have to use the real stuff from the refrigerator section in any recipe that calls for Parmesan mixed in a sauce. Also, some people use "grated" when they really mean "shredded." Even though this recipe said grated cheese, they did not mean Kraft grated cheese in the can.

Candied Lemon Peel

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2012
If you have ever eaten commercial candied fruit peel, you will notice that they do not remove the pith! Do like several others suggested and blanch the peel in fresh water at least twice, for 10 minutes each time. This removes the bitterness and tenderizes the peel. When it's done enough, a toothpick should easily pierce the peel. Then make the the syrup with fresh water and boil for 5 minutes. Add peels and simmer 15 to 20 minutes or until translucent. Drain and let dry several hours before rolling in sugar to coat.

Peach Blossom Fuzz

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
"Instead, it tasted more like a banana-orange smoothie." Did you use fresh orange juice or concentrate? That can make a big difference. I have found that using reconstituted concentrate gives a much stronger flavor than bottled or fresh squeezed. In things like this, fresh is always better. The flavor of the peaches also has a lot to do with it. You might reducing the juice and adding water or more ice. I eliminated the banana, used 1/2 c. juice and 1 c. ice, and it tasted like a fuzzy navel. Delicious
