Lemon Curd

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
Wow! I also cooked it in the microwave. It was tart and sweet and creamy and oH MY. Served it in a meringue shell, topped with whipped cream. Next time I might just eat half of it warm right out of the container, and the other half chilled right out of the container ;)

Spiced Yogurt Pound Cake

Reviewed: May 16, 2004
This was very good. Moist, holds it's shape when sliced, and the yogurt adds a nice creamy note. I served it with strawberries and whipped cream, and it was a hit. I will definitely make this again!

Orzo and Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2003
I printed the recipe and handed it to my husband when he asked "What's for dinner?". Then I pushed him in the direction of the kitchen with a package of pork chops under his arm (and another recipe!). In place of a bouillion cube, he used Catelli chicken garlic herb (about a teaspoon). My daughter had second and third helpings, as did my husband! Five stars because they liked it so much, and because he didn't even ask me ONE question while making it. Well, other than "where do we keep the orzo?" ;)

Mama D's Italian Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2003
I halved the recipe (all but the sugar) and shaped two smaller loaves. The texture and crust reminded me of the artisan peasant breads I pay three dollars a loaf for at the bakery! I also baked each loaf for 20 minutes at that temp, and misted every two minutes or so. I made this to eat with spaghetti, and ended up dumping my spaghetti noodles back into the pot so I could eat just sauce and bread LOL! This spreads as it rises, so not a mile high loaf. This recipe is definitely a keeper.

Grandma's Rhubarb Torte

Reviewed: May 15, 2003
This was very good (I agree with the other reviewer about the order of mixing). I ground two tablespoons of flax seeds in my coffee grinder and added them to the crust mixture for a wonderful nutty flavour (and a bit of added fiber..sneaky nutrition). Other than that, I made no other tweaks. The custard was firm enough to slice but velvety soft in the mouth. The meringue was a nice touch and looked very pretty (make sure filling is hot when you spread on egg white mixture..helps avoid making custard wet). And the preparation in a 9x13 dish served a lot of people with little trouble. Best the day it is made (crust got a bit soggy overnight). I will definitely make again when I need a dessert for a crowd!

Carrot Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2003
I'm sorry, I did not like this. I love all the ingredients, nothing strange on the list. But the overall flavour was not pleasant to me. Maybe if my carrots were sweeter? I might try it again without the garlic.

Banana Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2003
These are heaven when they are warm, like your favorite banana bread only fluffier and with a nice "bite" from the oatmeal. They are also good cold, but the banana flavour is less pronounced. Very good and not too sweet.

Apple Carrot Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2003
Very good and moist, not too sweet. I used a mixture of carrot/tropical fruit juice cocktail and skim milk instead of the buttermilk. I had to buy raisin bran for this recipe because we don't normally have it - my money was not wasted! My 3yo ate 2, which is a feat. Definitely a keeper.

Berry Cornmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2003
WOW! I used unsweetened individually frozen mixed berries (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries) and cut them into smaller pieces - no need to defrost. I also used mixed berry yogurt to match. These were tender and just sweet enough! Our yogurt comes in slightly smaller than 1 cup containers, so I added enough milk to make 1 cup. The proportion of corn meal is just right. Warm from the oven, or even cold the next day, these are a winner!! Can't wait to try them again during strawberry season.

Baked Spinach

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2002
I made this as a Thanksgiving side dish. I wilted and drained the spinach first, and mixed the sauce ingredients instead of layering them and stirred it all together so I could get it ready to bake ahead of time (I was worried fresh spinach would get slimy). The only thing I might add is a touch of garlic and onion, or dill and lemon for a different twist. Will definitely make again!

Cranberry Sauce Extraordinaire

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2002
Very good. My pear was not quite ripe, and I used dried cranberries as fruit bits so I added a bit more sugar. Next time I will add a mix of dried diced apples, currants, cranberries, and blueberries - and make sure my pear is RIPE! I also left the pecans in halves in case the diner wanted to pick them out. Leftovers were spooned into pre-baked shortbread tart shells and eaten with ice cream!

Angel Food Cake II

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2002
Very sweet and good. Practice your folding first! Impressed with my first attempt at angel food cake - something that people say is difficult to make. Husband and daughter loved it. Will definitely make again, and I plan on trying the sprinkles in the batter!
