Cranberry Whip

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2003
Easy and delicious. I used Cool Whip and it was just fine. Add chopped roasted pecans to make it even better. But don't skimp on the sugar or you might pucker too much.

Pistachio Crusted Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2010
My daughter and her friend loved this. I didn't have any Dijon but had some Vivi's chipotle carnival mustard and it added just the right amount of heat and sweet with the honey. I mixed some more mustard and honey together for a spicy dipping sauce. Really great.

Buttermilk Pie IV

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2010
I needed items to sell at a youth bake sale and had buttermilk on hand. Since disposable pie tins are rather small, I chose 12 servings and it filled those smaller crusts perfectly. Topped one with coconut, one with cinnamon and another with nutmeg. Did use one stick of butter and 1/2 stick margarine, 2 cups sugar, five eggs, and the rest as portioned by the recipe for 12 servings. Now it is hard to take all three to the sale - smell divine.

Italian Sausage With Spaghetti

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2010
Very good. I didn't have ripe olives so I substituted a can of diced tomatoes and added a few dashes of hot sauce and garlic salt. Even my husband, who does not like mushrooms, enjoyed this meal.

BREAKSTONE'S Simply Citrus Cream Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
An alternative for presentation. Bake this as a bundt or tube cake and prepare the topping separately. Chop the mandarin oranges and stir into the topping ingredients and spoon over individual servings. Other fruits could be used such as pineapple or berries. Or use the topping over a good sour cream pound cake.

White Bean with Fennel Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2010
I modified this a little but it was very good. I sauteed the fennel, onion, added carrot, and garlic in butter until a little caramelized then added chicken broth, two cans of drained white beans, one can of diced tomatoes and let simmer. I cooked a roll of Italian sausage and added some extra fennel seeds and some red pepper flakes, draining and adding to the soup. Didn't add the spinach but will next time. This was very good - and I will probably add some cream at the end next time to make it a little more "Tuscan."

Cranberry Scones

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2010
Excellent. I mixed the dry ingredients in the food processor. Then added chunks of cold butter along with the frozen cranberries and pulsed until mixed. Then I poured half-and-half with vinegar and almond extract added through the feed tube until mixed. I spooned the soft batter directly into my Williams-Sonoma scone pan and baked for the recommended time. Tender and delicious. NOT crumbly. My husband loved them and the fact they are relatively low in sugar.

Cabbage Soup II

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
Sauteed the veggies and ham in some butter before adding the broth. Increased the barley to one cup and cooked only until the barley was done. Delicious and makes lots of servings. Very economical.

Creme Brulee

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
Don't even bother with the sugar on the top. Increase the sugar slightly in the custard and enjoy it alone. So velvety and delicious and almost irresistible. But make sure and follow the recommendations by the chef and increase the temperature in the oven to 375 degrees and use a water bath (adding hot water.)

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
I roasted the squash and then put the soft meat into the dutch oven with the onions and sauteed. This is so good. I added some Louisiana hot sauce instead of the cayenne pepper and was able to control the heat and could add more at the table. Surprisingly filling.

Pueblo Green Chile Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
I modified this some by adding a can of Hatch enchilada sauce. I cut up some pork shoulder, rolled the cubes in flour and browned them. Then added the onions with some garlic. This was so good and the leftovers were just as great.

Make-Ahead Turkey Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
I made this for Thanksgiving two years ago because we never had enough gravy for a crowd. I plan to make it again this year since we are having a fried turkey but still need gravy for the dressing and mashed potatoes. Really good.

Perfect Crab Cakes With Green Onions

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
Wonderful. I used the panko bread crumbs on the cakes after I let them chill in the freezer. I also used two packages of Chicken of the Sea ready-to-serve crab which I had drained. Very tasty and made four cakes. My husband and I were glad that our kids weren't eating with us so we could enjoy double portions.

Chocolate Chip Apricot Zucchini Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2009
Very good. I changed up the recipe. I pureed some drained canned apricots and substituted for all of the oil. I also used orange extract and did not have any chocolate chips in the house but used pecans. I made muffins with half the recipe and large ones were ready in 25 minutes. With the other half of the recipe, I used a square cake pan and sprinkled with coconut.

Corn and Crab Bisque

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
Excellent. I used three 6-oz cans of Chicken of the Sea fancy crab, two cans of creamed corn and 16-oz of heavy cream instead of milk. No cayenne, I substituted a few dashes of Louisiana hot sauce. So good that when my daughter turned up her nose at it, I didn't even make her eat it. More leftovers for me.

Buttermilk Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
Just the right flavor for my husband but I waited until after he finished a large serving before informing him about the buttermilk. I have used different combinations of gelatin flavors and fruit and think I like the orange gelatin and mandarin oranges best. This salad is the reason I now always keep buttermilk.

Microwave Lemon Curd

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2014
Fast and fabulous. I only ended up with 1/2 cup of juice from four small lemons, added two egg yolks as recommended and added an extra 1/4 cup of sugar. Only took 2.5 minutes stopping after each minute and then after the last 30 seconds and stirring.

Southwestern Turkey Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2008
Very tasty. I used a can of tomatoes and green chilis instead of the green chilis. Great use of leftover holiday turkey meat.
