London Broil II

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2007
Delicious - - my family loved it. I added a LOT more garlic, doubled the amount of ketchup, and added 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. I also omitted the salt because of the soy sauce. I made two batches of marinade for 4 lbs of meat and grilled the meat over mesquite wood chips. It was delicious and I'll make it again, but perhaps with a more tender cut of beef.

No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2007
Wow! If you love peanut butter, this is a great recipe! I followed other posters' advice and used an oreo crumb crust. I also put a thin layer of fudge topping on the crust with 2 chopped up peanut butter cups. I drizzled more fudge topping on top of the pie and sprinkled it with one chopped peanut butter cup and a few chopped, unsalted peanuts. (To ease the guilt a little, I used light whipped topping and light cream cheese.) It looked impressive and tasted great!

Andrew's Herb Risotto

Reviewed: May 6, 2007
Omigosh, this was so good! Such a fresh herby flavor - - a welcomed change of pace for a starchy side dish. This was the first time I've made risotto. It was kind of a pain to gather all the ingredients and prepare, but very much worth the effort! The only thing I didn't have was the white wine, so I just added 1/2 cup more chix broth. I'm making this for company next week. Thanks for a great recipe, Lesley.

Bronco Burger

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2007
These burgers were delicious and a nice change from the typical burger. I followed the recipe exactly, except that I had trouble roasting the peppers (the wind kept blowing out the grill). I therefore used the peppers without fully roasting them. We like spicy food and therefore left the pepper seeds in). Grilled the burgers over mesquite wood and added our favorite condiments. Yum!

Easy Pepperoni Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2007
This recipe was really good and easy to make. I used my bread machine to make the dough (1 pound of italian bread dough). I sprinkled some crushed red pepper flakes on it along with the other spices. I baked it for exactly 35 minutes and then served it with pizza sauce for dipping. My son, who loves pepperoni rolls, thought it was great.

Creamy Dill Cucumber Toasties

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2006
My guests loved these! They disappeared so fast, I almost didn't get to try one myself. I lightly toasted the bread on both sides using the broiler. I assembled them a few minutes before my guests arrives so they wouldn't get soggy. Also, I sprinkles some fresh chives and fresh ground pepper on them - - yum!

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2006
Wow! This shrimp was GREAT and very easy to make! I followed the recipe exactly; marinated the shrimp for an hour) and was careful not to overcook it on the grill. My husband and I enjoyed the kick that the cayenne pepper added, but people who are very sensitive to spicey foods may want to take caution. I put this recipe on my "definitely make for company" list.

Blueberry Pound Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2006
Terrific! I made this recipe for a Father's Day brunch and it was eaten entirely (and quickly!). My guests loved it (especially my mom who is a true pound cake lover). I used frozen unsweetened blueberries (fresh ones are not quite in season). I measured 2 heaping cups frozen berries and let them thaw and drain in a colander overnight in the fridge. I dredged them with flour before adding to the cake batter, as it says to do in the recipe instructions. The batter was thick, but it was not difficult to work with - - I don't think it needs added milk. Also, I buttered and sugared the pan, as directed, and the cake came out very easily. I'll definitely make this again. It's easier than the blueberry muffin recipe that I use and just as good.

Easy Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2006
I followed this recipe exactly and used regular (unseasoned) breadcrumbs. The chicken lacked flavor. Next time I will use seasoned breadcrumbs or add more seasonings to the regular breadcrumbs.

Egg Noodles

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2006
The noodle dough recipe that I've made in the past is good, but is very difficult to use with my hand-cranked pasta maker. I was therefore looking for a new noodle recipe and decided to give this recipe a try, although I was somewhat leery about kneading the dough. (I was afraid kneading might toughen the dough.) This recipe worked great in my pasta maker and the noodles were not tough, although they weren't as light as noodles made from my original recipe. I will definitely use this recipe again - - perhaps to make pierogies. The ease of using this dough in my pasta maker is worth the trade-off of having a noodle that isn't quite as light as my other recipe.

Good, but I'm not sure if I'll make the beet greens again.

Bourbon Whiskey BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2006
I used this barbecue sauce on spare ribs. It was really, really good (although I'm still trying to decide if it's "thee sauce" I'm searching for). It is good when it's just cooked, but gets better and better the longer it sits in the frigde. I sent my 21-year old son to buy "good" bourbon. He came back with "Old Crow" ($7.99/bottle)! I used it and the sauce still tasted great! My family really liked it.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2005
Delicioius and easy to make. I used 1 tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice in place of the cinnamon, allspice and ginger. The batter was thick, which I like. After pouring the batter on the griddle, I sprinkled each pancake with pecans. The pancakes were light, fluffy and flavorful. I will make this recipe for company in the future.

Sweet Potato Pie II

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2005
I feel sort of bad giving this review to this recipe because clearly I'm in the minority of those who've submitted a review, but I didn't like this recipe at all! This was the first sweet potato pie that I 've made. I've read that oftentimes sweet potato pie is so much better than regular pumpkin pie, so I was anxious to try a sweet potato pie. I followed the recipe exactly, but my husband and I both didn't like it. Of course, I'm comparing it to pumpkin, and maybe that's wrong (like comparing apples to oranges). I therefore didn't rate this recipe. Unfortunately I ended up throwing the pie out and the recipe. I'll stick to pumpkin.

Acapulco Margarita Grouper

Reviewed: May 2, 2005
My whole family loved this recipe. It's unique and flavorful. I didn't have tequila on hand, so I used vodka. I also didn't have orange liqeur, so I used orange juice. I'll definitely make this recipe again- - maybe even for company.

Strawberry Cake II

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2005
Although I wouldn't put this cake in the "to die for" category, it was really quite good. I, too, made it in two 9" round cake pans and used the Cool Whip Frosting recipe from this site. My guests seemed to really like it and I will make it again.

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2005
This was the first carrot cake I ever made and it was absolutely declicious. The only change that I made to the cake recipe was to use walnuts instead of pecans. I found that a one-pound bag of carrots yielded the three cups of shredded carrots the recipe calls for. I baked the batter in two 9" round shiny metal cake pans in a convection oven at 325 degrees for 38 minutes. Instead of using the traditional cream cheese frosting included in this recipe, I followed the advice of a previous reviewer and used the Whipped Cream Cheese frosting recipe from this website. My guests raved!

Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2005
This frosting is absolutely delicious! It's a very nice substitute for the traditional cream cheese frosting because it's not as heavy nor as sweet. I followed the directions exactly and the frosting came out perfect. I used it to decorate a double-layer round carrot cake and it worked great. I did not find it to be at all "runny" (as did some other reviewers). Just be sure to beat the whipping cream adequately, and then fold it into the cream cheese mixture gently. My guests loved this frosting and I will definitely make it again.

Mostaccioli with Spinach and Feta

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2004
I modified this recipe slighlty so it would be similar to a dish I recently had at an Italian restaurant. I used chopped sundried tomatoes in place of the fresh tomatoes. I used fresh baby spinach that I added at the very end and cooked until the leaves wilted slightly. I also added pine nuts. I used regular feta instead of the flavored feta and I increased the amount of garlic. It was very easy and delicious!
