Blondies II

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
Every Monday night I bring a cake or something sweet for Monday Night Football. I was in the mood for a brownie, but decided blondies would be a more unexpected treat. Found this recipe and gave it a shot - very easy to put together. When I served it, the entire batch was gone within minutes and people clamored for more. Three people asked for the recipe - and they NEVER bake....

Pineapple Cake III

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2010
Phenomenal cake! Every week I bring a cake to an outdoor concert and I ask for suggestions for the following week. Someone said they would love something pineapple...so I looked and found this one. Followed the directions exactly as written, but added some cherry extract and juice to the icing. Decorated it with halved cherries. Rave reviews all around!

Chicken Nut Puffs

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2006
In reading the other postings, I substituted 1 tablespoon of Mrs. Dash seasoning for all of the listed seasonings. (It has most of what was called for anyway.) I also used ground turkey rather than chicken (made it easy to chop after it was cooked - plus it was in my freezer) People raved about these - I had three people ask me for the recipe right away. This is a keeper - just change the spices a bit.

Rigatoni with Eggplant, Mushrooms and Goat Cheese

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2004
Great recipe - very quick, easy to make. I followed the recipe exactly - no problems and my guests raved about the sauce. I much prefer homemade sauce to anything that is bought, and this was definitely a keeper.

Blueberry Cream Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2004
I made this pie twice - the first time I did it while I was on vacation at a friend's house. He did not have a stand alone mixer, so I incorporated the eggs and sugar with a hand mixer and stopped after 6 minutes. Also, I was using a prepared pie shell, which made a big difference (I used a 9" shell). The pie was good, but I could see the potential!! When I came home I started all over again - this time with my stand alone mixer. I beat the yolks a full 15 minutes, and incorporated the sugar over 10 of those minutes. This step made the big difference. Also, I cut back to 1 pt of blueberries. Those two changes and the pie was superb!! Give it a chance - you won't regret.

Crab with Stilton Cheese

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2003
I left out the grapes since I forgot to put them on my shopping list....this was still a winner. My guests raved about it and I was asked by three people for the recipe already.

Baked Cheese Olives

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2003
I added more butter to the recipe - a full stick which caused the dough to spread slightly - but this was still a great recipe. I also used different olives for a change of pace. I rolled the jalapeno stuffed olives in poppy seeds to distinguish them from the others and warn potential tastees.

California Bean Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2003
I made this recipe for a pre-dinner appetizer for my guests as we lounged on the deck. I knew this was a great recipe when one of the guests kept sneaking into the container while it chilled in the refrigerator. I did not find it watery at all, but found that using a very thick Italian dressing helped the consistency greatly. I thought about adding some sour cream, but did not have any on hand. Maybe next time. I also halfed the recipe, which was more than enough for a gathering of 8 people.

French Toast Souffle

Reviewed: May 16, 2003
I served this as part of my Mother's Day brunch, and had nothing but rave reviews. The only change that I made was that I substituted a cinnamon raisin bread (and sometimes apple bread when I can find it) for the white bread. That made a big difference - for those who feel that it was not sweet enough. I served it with maple and regular syrup, but no one used it. I had four requests for the recipe after I served this - so it had to be good.

Puttanesca I

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2003
I made this recipe for a dinner party for 9 people. All of them raved about the sauce. I did not push the tomatoes through a sieve, but left them chopped coarse. Added a few chopped sundried tomatoes, which helped to thicken the sauce a bit. Made a nice addition, but the sauce would have been fine without them. I also scaled back the olive oil a bit. Overall, a keeper of a recipe. I can't wait to serve it again!

Key Lime Pie I

Reviewed: May 26, 2002
A recipe that has never failed to win raves whenever I serve it. A perfect dessert for a hot summer night - not too heavy.

Jesse and Steve's Fresh Strawberry Cake

Reviewed: May 26, 2002
What a great recipe! We made it for friends after a big dinner, and it was an immediate hit. Everyone wanted the recipe. We cut the sugar back to 1 cup (and could have cut it a little more). The one thing we found was that there was not enough icing. We doubled the recipe, and that made plenty.
