Quick Yeast Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2010
Great flavor but don't do what I did and double the recipe! I ended up having to pour the batter into two (2) loaf pans and ended up with two fabulous loaves of bread!! I'm about to make a one-recipe loaf of bread now and remembered I hadn't reviewed it when I made them the first time for Christmas dinner! LOL

Potato Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
These are the easiest drop cookie around - no fussing with measuring dry ingredients - just a package of instant potatoes and an envelope of biscuit mix with a few standard cookie ingredients (butter, egg & sugar)...you won't be disappointed. I've been making these cookies for over 30 years!

Unbelievably Awesome Barbeque Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
I followed the recipe as written and found the marinara/bbq sauce was too runny. If I made it again, I'd cut back on the sauce. I used a pizza crust recipe and made my own instead of the pre-made. Prebaked in a 10" springform pan before topping the pizza and baking again made it much easier to remove.

Tiramisu II

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2009
OMG - this was absolutely fabulous!! The only alterations I made were from previous reviews: doubled the espresso to 1/2 cup and used 2 Tbsp. dark rum and 2 Tbsp. Kahlua painted on underside of lady fingers with a pastry brush. I also used a springform pan. Next time I'll be layering it in a loaf pan to make more layers and using just the Kahlua and no rum. Everything else is just right! My mothers had requested this for her birthday cake this year and she said it was just as she had imagined it would be! A must to use the mascarpone cheese and to allow flavors to mingle in the refrigerator for 2 days. Also, I didn't even use a full teaspoon of cocoa to sprinkle over the top - a full tablespoon would make it too thick IMHO. This one is definitely going in my recipe box to stay! You will NOT be disappointed - worth the time to make the homemade custard to end up with such an elegant and rich dessert will very little prep work!

Baked Penne with Italian Sausage

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
I haven't even put this together to put in the oven yet and the sauce tastes fabulous! I'll come back after dinner to update the review. BTW - I didn't have tomato sauce so I substituted a 14 oz. jar of pepperoni pizza sauce instead and add some fresh basil. I may just have to use this sauce recipe as my go-to meat sauce recipe! YUMMO!

Mexican-Style Goulash

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
Much tastier than regular old Hamburger Helper, for sure! I used Rotel tomatoes, added a bit of green pepper, taco seasoning and also added a can of pinto beans (as suggested in previous review) to stretch it out a bit. To add a bit more Mexican zip I used Mexican Velveeta for the cheese.

Hasty Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
This pudding recipe is absolutely AWESOME!! I don't think I could go back to boxed pudding again! I used Special Dark cocoa and made ultimate dark chocolate pudding that we loved! You can't ask for a faster dessert than 5 ingredients and 5 minutes in the microwave! Make sure you use a large enough bowl to avoid boil over in the microwave, though! You won't be sorry whipping this delicious dessert up! :-)

Potato Flake Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
These are super easy - I've not made this particular recipe but I make one just like it using an envelope of buttermilk biscuit mix (Martha White or White Lily) and an envelope of instant potato flakes. I add chopped pecans to my recipe and use vanilla extract. I'll have to give the coconut extract a try in my recipe! :-)

Whole Wheat Banana Nut Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
This banana bread recipe is NOT your typical "whole wheat dry as a bone" banana bread! It stayed moist until the last slice! Bananas too ripe in my house get popped in the freezer to make recipes such as this!

Lighter Fettuccini Alfredo

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
This was fabulous! I used regular cream cheese instead (didn't have the low-fat) and cut the butter to 1/4 cup and it turned out wonderful!! It'll be a keeper for sure and I can now enjoy alfredo without having to go grocery shopping for whipping cream! BTW - the sauce came together in less time than it took to cut the cream cheese into cubes! LOL

Microwave Bread and Butter Pickles

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2008
WOW!! Pickles that fast...and from a microwave, no less! I took the suggestion of a previous reviewer and placed jarred pickles while hot in the refrigerator and they sealed on their own! Cool! Very good and right on the money for a delicious bread & butter pickle!

Butter Pecan Ice Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2008
OMG!! This is the abosolute best butter pecan ice cream I've ever tasted! I'm even eating it before it's had a chance to freeze solid! LOL I took a few tips from other reviewers (a) cut the sugar in half (b) used 1 cup cream & 1 cup half & half (c) added more pecans and (d) added a teaspoon of butter extract along with the vanilla! My husband even complimented me (which hardly ever happens ;-) You won't be sorry if you give this ice cream recipe a try! YUMMO!!!

Stars and Stripes Grand Finale Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2007
I prepared this for a 4th of July cookout and it was FABULOUS! I even had sparklers (thanks to my niece) to light as "candles" before we sliced it!! YUMMO!! The only thing I'd suggest doing (for looks as well as taste) is cook the blueberries a little bit - the gelatin layer with the blueberries was a little stiffer than the strawberry layer. Cutting an uncooked blueberry is gold in the center and a little strange looking (to me anyway)! But everyone raved on how festive it looked and it tastes just like a strawberry/blueberry shortcake in an all-in-one pan!

Spaghetti Squash I

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2007
This is the first time I had prepared spaghetti squash and I must say that it turned out really good! :-) I didn't have fresh tomatoes so I used a can of drained diced tomatoes and fresh grated parmesan cheese instead of the feta. It's a keeper! Next time I'll try it with the feta! Simple, easy and delicious!

Cajun Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2006
Nothing to write home about - did exactly as recipe stated and pork chops ended up tough and not very seasoned. I had to sprinkle extra creole seasoning to get any flavor while eating dinner. Probably wouldn't waste the $$$ on the pork chops to do this recipe again.

Lemon-Pepper Salmon II

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2006
This was very tasty! Simple with just three ingredients, too! I used this brush/sprinkle on amber jack fillets and they turned out wonderful. I even sauteed some fresh mushrooms and accented them with more lemon pepper seasoning! YUMMO!! :-)

Grilled Salmon II

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2005
This was sooooo tasty! Having never broiled fish fillets before...what a keeper for my first try. The balance of flavors in the marinade really makes this salmon recipe a quick and delicious entree! Thanks Christine! :-)

Burgundy Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2004
To describe this recipe in one word....AWESOME!! Talk about a "fix it and forget it" meal and then just whisk in a packet of brown gravy mix when the tenderloin is resting before carving....GEEEEZZ -- can't get any simplier than this one! I baked homemade scalloped potatoes along with the roast and added at mealtime some sugar snap peas....Viola! An elegant dinner is served! Just a quick note: My tenderloin was 3.5 pounds and I roasted it approximately 20 minutes to the pound and it turned out perfect (i.e. plenty of gravy)!

Aunt Betty's Banana Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2004
This has to be the absolute BEST banana pudding recipe EVER!! You don't have to drag the double boiler out to make the custard and no mixers or beaters to make meringue! Two quick changes I made, however. I used a box of French Vanilla and a box of Banana Cream pudding (instead of 2 vanilla) and a whole 12 oz. box of mini vanilla wafers. Dessert at Easter Sunday dinner this year was a fantabulous hit! Even my picky sister (that loves banana pudding made the "other" way, was very pleased)! You can't go wrong with this one! It's the one I'll be making when requested to create a banana pudding again! :-D
