Passover Chocolate Mandelbrot

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2007
This recipe was yummy! It was like a cross between a toasted quickbread and biscotti. I made one batch with chocolate chips and walnuts and another dried cherries and almond slices. All my Jewish friends loved it and couldn't believe it was kosher for Passover!

Honey Bun Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2006
This cake was all right, but I didn't find it 'fantabulous'. What it's got going for it is that it is incredibly easy to make, and you can enjoy an almost-homemade coffeecake with a little time and effort. I found the icing to be a bit much (enough to drown the cake) and halved it with plenty enough to drizzle.

Chocolate Pound Cake III

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2005
This cake is extremely fudgy. I made it into two 8" layers (to make two separate desserts). I served one immediately and wrapped the other (plastic wrap, foil, and ziploc bag) and froze it. Both were delicious served with just a light sprinkling of confectioners' sugar.

Blueberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2005
Very easy to make! Not too sweet, but next time, I'd add more vanilla or try adding cinnamon or nutmeg for more flavor. Great with mixed berries!

Best Ever Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2005
This recipe was extremely easy to make, but the flavor was 'flat'. It needs a teaspoon of vanilla to give it dimension. I found the recipe for Blueberry Cream Muffins submitted by Kim to be much more flavorful.

Crab Quiche I

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2004
Deelish! I wanted an easy recipe to demonstrate to my husband that fend-for-yourself-night (i.e., when I'm in class) doesn't always have to mean cold sandwiches or salads. I helped him make this last night, and not only was he was impressed by how easy it was, both of us thought the quiche looked and tasted great! Thanks.

Caramel Pound Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2003
This cake was very heavy, rich, and moist. I would consider this recipe for advanced, patient bakers. If using a tube pan with a removable bottom, wrap foil around the outside of it and place pan on a rimmed cookie sheet or it could leak all over the oven! After cooking the frosting, I transferred it to a pyrex bowl to speed up the cooling process, but it still took a good amount of stirring to get it to frosting consistency. I found it much too sugary sweet and next time would opt for drizzling each cake slice with a little caramel sauce and garnish with some fruit for color.

Tuscan Cream Cheese Spread

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2003
YUM. This recipe is a delicious change from spinach dip, and all of the vegetables look like bright confetti in the cream cheese--very festive looking! Use artichoke bottoms if you don't like the sometimes tough leaves from artichoke hearts, and use top quality black olives. Definitely make the night before to allow flavors to meld. An alternative to serving with crackers would be to use the spread with hothouse (English) cucumber slices for a light snack (great for those on a low carb diet or for those who can't tolerate gluten from the crackers).

Baked Whole Cauliflower

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2003
This recipe offers a nice alternative to your traditional steamed cauliflower, but I would cut the cauliflower into smaller pieces and prepare in a shallow dish so every bite has some topping on it.

Smoked Oyster Spread

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2003
This recipe makes a nice quantity if you have a taste for pate but don't want to get stuck with a lot leftover. Next time, I would not mash the oysters up too much since they continue to fall apart after the remaining ingredients are combined. Instead of the smooth consistency, you'd get small chunks of oysters in every bite!

Caramelized Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2003
The chicken was overcooked by the time the sauce started to carmelize. Next time, I would boil the sauce down in a pan on the stovetop and then use it like barbeque sauce once thickened.

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2003
Great recipe--especially the dressing. I lightly toasted the almond slices and added the dressing at the last minute to keep the spinach leaves from starting to wilt.

Mandarin Almond Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2003
This is a nice, bright salad. Easy to make and a welcome change from the typical garden salad. I added chicken to make into an entree salad. Yum!

Peanut Butter Bars I

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2003
Incredibly easy to make and yummy too! Depending on how goopy your peanut butter is, use between 2-3 cups of graham crackers, adding a little at a time after the first two cups until the mixture is easy to spread and not so sticky.

Creamy Caramel Flan

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2002
I had a difficult time making the sugar syrup stuff. I ended up using the sugar syrup for peanut brittle and turned this dessert into a variation of creme brulee. It was very rich and creamy. Even my sister-in-law, who doesn't like eggy or custardy foods, really liked it.

Maple Bacon Pancake

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2002
Yummy! I tried this recipe first with bacon and then with Lee Fogle's recipe for Breakfast Sausage. The bacon was good, but the sausage version was faboo! I grew up with Mrs. Butterworth's syrup, so I used that, and it was delicious.

Breakfast Sausage

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2002
This recipe can't be beat. It's so tasty and easy to make that I'll probably never buy store-bought sausage again--especially since you don't know what 'by-products' are in there. This recipe is the real thing! You won't be disappointed.
