Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2003
i have made this many times and think it is a fabulous recipe as written. today i made it with greek yogurt because i had a lot of it on hand, and it was every bit as good!

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
my daughter made this yesterday, and it was very good. my youngest, who rarely tries anything new, ate three helpings! she didn't whip the potatoes, but mashed them slightly, leaving large chunks which gave a nice textural interest.

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
excellent--even my extremely picky daughter chowed down on it. one reviewer said that it was good with pork instead of chicken; i would bet that it would also work well with beef. more thoughts at a later date: since sticky chicken is almost always made with chicken thighs in chinese restaurants, i made it that way, which means that the chicken doesn't dry out while the sauce thickens. added carrots, onion, and sliced red and green peppers - very tasty. agave syrup can be substituted for honey, and using sriracha hot sauce ensures the heat!

Haitian French Toast

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
this rocks! nice bright flavor for a cold winter morning. i made 1.5x the recipe because it didn't look like it would be enough for my 1-lb. pugliese loaf, but there was enough custard for that loaf plus a .5-lb. whole grain loaf with still some left over (i'm thinking it will turn into bread pudding!) i did add about a tbsp. of triple sec, but that was the only change i made.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: May 28, 2008
these rocked--added about 1/2 less sugar (didn't want to open a new bag), and about 2 tbsp. extra cocoa (didn't want to put that small amount back on the shelf), and they were easily the darkest, richest brownies i've ever made.

Stacey's Fabulous Purple Potato Gratin

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2013
extremely good. 8 potatoes is a sort of vague amount, so i weighed 8 average blue potatoes (which are fairly small) and came up with 1.25 lbs, which seems about right for 4 servings. i used feta, as the goat cheese i had on hand is $24/lb...not using that for peasant potatoes! a half an onion was a fine substitute for the unavailable leek, and i didn't attempt to cook the mixture together before baking - it seemed like a silly and slightly redundant idea. the end result was amazingly creamy and crispy at the same time. i will make this again with different potatoes and cheeses; i've got a block of smoked gouda that i think would be divine!

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2008
quite good...i simmered the cream with the garlic and then strained it out before adding the cheese. after the cheese melted the sauce was quite stringy, (that whole melted cheese thing) so i added about 1/4 cup of the pasta cooking water which made it fluid enough to coat the pasta. i left out the parsley, but i think next time i'll add chopped basil.

Naan

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2002
terrific! use it to make cheese bread or pizzas on the grill! i'm adding to my review...i had to reprint this recently, and while i was waiting for the printer i read some of the recent reviews. so, i added the 1/2 tsp. baking soda which did give the bread a nice bubbly texture. i used yogurt instead of the milk--gave it a nice tang. i also replaced 1 1/2 cups of the white flour with wheat (to get in some whole grain!) hard to believe that one of my favorite recipes could be improved on, but it was! thanks for the suggestions. also, i sometimes replace the water with beer-gives it a nice yeasty flavor...

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
these cookies are quite wonderful both iced and plain. for those who have remarked that they are a bit "plain" tasting, they are sugar cookies...they are meant to be plain.

Bread Machine Bagels

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
excellent bagels! unlike other posters, i did not make fewer bagels from this dough; i made more - eighteen to be exact. who needs a gigantic 300 calorie bagel? wanting to have some whole grain, i ground up 1/2 c. rolled oats to replace 1/2 c. flour. i also added a "glug" of molasses to the boiling water as suggested by other posters. didn't bother with the egg white (boiling the bagels in sugar water isn't to make them sweet, folks; it's to make them shiny!) about 20 minutes baking time was about right, even with the smaller size.

Whipped Shortbread Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2005
terrific recipe!! i heeded the advice of previous posters and reduced the temperature slightly (about 325). for a gilding the lily version, i pressed chopped pistachios into the top before baking and drizzled some melted semisweet chocolate over them as soon as they came out of the oven. seriously yummy!

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2008
i had to stop myself from from just sitting down with the casserole dish in my lap and eating the whole thing. i imagine that it would also be good with italian sausage. i think that i didn't use all the sour cream or provolone that the recipe called for, but it didn't seem to make a difference!

Raspberry Buttermilk Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2010
these are PERFECT as written! it makes me crazy when the top rated review of a recipe tells readers to do exactly the wrong thing, as is the case with this recipe. DO NOT add an extra egg, DO NOT add more sugar, and DO NOT add vanilla extract! this is a muffin recipe, not a cupcake recipe!! if you feel like your batter is too thick, add a bit more buttermilk, but the fresh raspberries add moisture, so extra buttermilk really shouldn't be necessary. and fyi - 1/2 cup sugar is 2 teaspoons per muffin...2nd day update: these are also excellent the second and third days.

Cinnamon Sour Cream Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
excellent! admittedly, i did make a number of changes, but none of them changed the essential proportions, which is the most important part of a biscuit recipe. i used butter (why anyone would every use margarine is beyond me), replaced 1/2 white flour with whole wheat, and because i was mysteriously out of raisins, i used craisins. i don't like frosted baked goods for breakfast, so i brushed the tops with butter and sprinkled the biscuits with cinnamon sugar before baking which gave them a nice crunch. i can't wait to make them again (maybe even with raisins!)

Spinach Noodles

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
i used this recipe more as a "jumping off" guide, using what i had on hand. 4 egg yolks took the place of two eggs, which meant that i only needed 1 1/2 cups flour. i mixed the dough right in the processor (no need to dirty another bowl!) and kneaded lightly. i rolled the dough very thin, and cut it into skinny ribbons. cooking the noodles only took about 3 minutes (15 minutes would have yielded mush.) my only regret is that i didn't make a better sauce for these wonderful noodles!

Chicken Bryan

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2011
omg...i love this dish at the restaurant, and the home version does not disappoint. i was tempted to say that there is too much lemon juice, but after tasting the sauce with the basil and tomato, on the chicken, i have to say that it is nigh on perfect! (though a more accurate measure, i.e., 3Tbsp, would be preferable to the non-specific "juice of two lemons!") i will be making this again! now, can we get them to post their recipe for chicken santa rosa? i should add that while the amount of chicken and cheese is for one serving, the sauce is enough for 6 servings!!

Hasty Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
i doubled it, and the cooking times needed to be altered; 3 times @ 3 minutes, then 3 times @ 1 minute, using a whip to stir well in between each time. i used amaretto instead of vanilla - yum!

Quiche Lorraine I

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2011
this was excellent, but i halved the bacon and doubled the cheese, eliminated the sugar (1/4 tsp. in a quiche? who would even know it was there?), and used white pepper instead of cayenne.
