World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2010
This is very similar to the lasagna I have been making for years. However, I double the onions, garlic and ricotta cheese (16oz is just not enough) and add Marsala Wine to the tomato sauce.

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2010
I just love this cake. I have made it several times, but the last time I substitued ricotta cheese for the marscapone and I thought it was even better. You have to, however, use a very good quality ricotta cheese. I buy the 3lb container from Sams Club called Biazzo and use 16 oz for the cake and save the rest for lasagna.

Italian Biscotti

Reviewed: May 14, 2010
After taking the loaves out of the oven, let them cool down for at least 15 minutes before cutting and after the final baking, turn the oven off and leave the cookies in the oven to completely cool, with the oven door ajar. This will make them nice and crispy

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: May 14, 2010
I will not be making this cake again. Granted, this cake is very fast and easy to make but still tastes like a box cake. I would rather spend more time making a cake from scratch.

Almond Biscotti

Reviewed: May 15, 2010
I made these according to the recipe and they were delicious!! They tasted just like the Nonni brand I used to buy, but so much cheaper and easy to make. I used the anise flavoring. So glad I found this recipe; no need to change a thing. This is the BEST recipe for biscotti!!!

Cranberry Orange Loaf

Reviewed: May 16, 2010
Make the glaze with powdered sugar, orange juice, orange zest and GRAND MARNIER. Delicious!!! Use 1 cup powdered sugar, 1tsp. orange zest, 1 TBS orange juice and 2TBS Grand Marnier, or enough to make it a nice drizzling consistency.

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: May 18, 2010
Great recipe, but next time I will eliminate the chicken bouillon (makes sauce too salty for our taste) and no need to add corn starch to the whipping cream, as whipping cream will thicken quite quickly on its own.

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: May 23, 2010
I reduced the parmesan to 1/2 C and added red pepper flakes, 1 TBS sherry and grated fresh nutmeg. Very delicious, nutmeg is the secret ingredient!! You can also sautee 1/2 lb of sliced mushroons in butter, in a separate pan, and add to the finished sauce.

Homemade Vanilla Pudding

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2010
I cannot believe that so many people thought this to be one of the best pudding recipes. Usually I am not disappointed with so many rave reviews. However, this pudding tasted like extremely sweet, jelled milk. I wanted to give this recipe no stars, but the computer made me give it at least one, in order to enter my review.

Lemon Blueberry Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2010
I omitted the nuts and took the other reviewers advice and floured the blueberries, and made the glaze with confectionery sugar and the cake came out just perfect. Very delicious and easy to make. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. It is a "keeper" and I will be making it again and again.

Sounds delicious and very easy. I am looking forward to making this. Update: I made this cake today and was very disappointed. It is ordinary and VERY sweet. Will not be making it again.

Banana Cake II

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2010
I made this cake today and did not change a thing. It turned out just perfect, very moist and a wonderful banana flavor, very delicious even without the frosting. Please do not mess with this great and very easy recipe. Thanks for sharing.

Apple Bavarian Torte

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
Great recipe. I increased cream cheese to 12 oz and added 1 TBS of lemon juice to it and only used 3 Granny Smith apples. I also lined the springform pan bottom with parchment paper and brushed the cooled torte with Apple Jelly. This is a keeper.

Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
If you like hard cookies, as I do, bake them at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. Next time I will omit the green coloring, as my Poker Group thought they tasted great but looked disgusting. I did use 1tsp. mint extract as I love mint and they were perfect.

Traditional Osso Buco

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2011
Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe; the sauce was extraordinary. I did use chicken broth instead of beef broth. Think I will try it with chicken next time, as veal shanks are so expensive and, often, hard to find.

Strawberry Coffee Cake

Reviewed: May 8, 2011
I made this with 2 C of sliced fresh strawberries , omitted the nuts and added 1 tsp. vanilla and baked for 40 minutes and it turned out wonderful. Thanks for sharing this recipe. It is amazing how delicious this cake is, considering that there are only 6 TBS of butter in the entire recipe.

Mom's Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: May 29, 2011
This is a delicious and very forgiving recipe, as I have used chicken breasts (sliced in half lenghtwise)or chicken tenders. I have also used Marsala Wine or Red Vermouth and the recipe always turned out great. I only use olive oil and have never added mushrooms or green pepper but still wonderful. Before serving I mix 1/2 C fresh chopped parsley with 2 cloves of crushed garlic and 1 tsp. lemon zest and stir it into the sauce.

Lemon Lover's Pound Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
Great cake. You MUST cream the butter and sugar for at least 5 minutes, as the recipe suggests, and use a large TUBE pan or ANGEL FOOD pan and then the batter will not overflow. Also, the buter and eggs must be at room temperature. I added 1 extra egg, 1 tsp. vanilla extract and reduced sugar to 2-1/2 cups and souir cream to 1 cup. Baked for 1 hour 7 minutes.

German Apple Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2011
I have had the same recipe for over 20 years , except I add walnuts and omit the frosting. It is very delicious and, without the frosting, can be stored up to 2 days at room temperature and up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator. This cake gets better, more moist and flavorful, as it ages. I dust it with powdered sugar and garnish with apples wedges before serving.
