Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2004
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! This is exactly the recipe my mother used to make when I was a kid. The entire extended family made her bring it for every gathering. But unfortunately, she lost the recipe. I showed her this one and it's the same! I am so thrilled. Not only is a piece of my youthful holiday memories restored, but I can now make this fabulous dessert. Thanks Matthew!

Greek Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2004
I had no idea what to expect from this cookie, but the reviews here convinced me to try it. Definitely a wonderful butter cookie with a delicate taste. The dough held its shape beautifully. I did shape it into "S" by using a small backin "ice cream scoop" usually used to make melon balls. But this allowed me to get a consistent amount of dough for each cookie. Then I simply rubbed the ball between my palms into about a 3" rope then shaped into an S on the cookie sheet. I didn't grease my cookie sheets, but I did use parchmant paper. A much easier clean up! I think at Christmas I'll put red or green food coloring into the dough. You know-- S for Santa! I think they'd look pretty with the powdered sugar sprinkled over them. A nice addition to the Christmas cookie tray.

American Lasagna

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2004
I have to add my 5 stars to the long list of others. By way of background, I was taught how to cook Italian by a former boyfriend's 1st generation Italian mother. If I was going to cook for her son, I'd better do it right! So I'm no stranger to really good lasagna. This, however, is a fabulous version that doesn't take as much time as my "authentic" method. An added bonus: I used no boil lasagna noodles and you can't tell that I did. The only adjustment I made was to use 3 cans of petite cut basil/garlic tomatoes so there would be enough liquid and I baked the lasagna for 50 minutes covered, then another 15 minutes without the foil. As far as meat, I used 1lb ground beef and about 1/2 lb of Italian sausage. Also, I ALWAYS use Lawry's seasoning salt instead of regular table salt in all my recipes with good success. You must try this lasagna. It's my husband's favorite (even over the authentic version!) and lasagna is his favorite food, so he's somewhat of an expert. Try this recipe-- you won't be disappointed!

Caramel Pie II

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2004
Incredibly rich! But I walked on the wild side by serving this at Thanksgiving without having tasted it first. What a hit! I used a chocolate grahame cracker shell and topped it with Cool Whip and sprinkled toffee brickle bits on top. No one could believe it when I told them how it was made. It was such a time saver to make with impressive results. You need to try this!

Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2003
I cannot praise these cookies enough! I went on a mission one month in search of the perfect chocolate chip cookie-- my husband swears he gained 10 lbs. that month! This is by far and away THE BEST-- and tried just about all the 5* recipes from this site. The first time I made them as the recipe is written and they were fabulous. Then I customized it for our own personal taste by altering the mix of chocolate chips. I use 1/2 cup semi-sweets, then I coarsely chop a chocolate bar with almonds to equal one cup, plus some. I can't even begin to describe how good these are. I have given these cookies to the most sophisticated choc. chip cookie connosieurs and they pass with flying colors! What an incredible cookie...

Easy Lima Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2003
I am NOT a green vegetable fan, but my father in law loves limas. So when he asked for them for his birthday dinner, I came right to this site. And as usual, it didn't let me down! This recipe was wonderful-- easy and very tasty. I think I ate more than my FIL! The only deviation I made was I sauteed the onion in bacon grease and added butter before serving. No wonder I liked them! Seriously, easy and good.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2003
I must add my voice to the hundreds before me. These cookies are a miracle! While I like to think I know my way around a kitchen, sugar cookies have always been disastrous for me. Not any more! The best advice I every received was from a review below-- I rolled them out on parchment paper then pulled away the scraps from around the cutout cookies. It eliminated damaging the cookies while transferring them to a cookie sheet. I used 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla as suggested. I made them for a wedding reception using the bride and grooms initials, frosted them with white icing and sprinkled them with irridescent edible glitter. They were beautiful and tasty. Thank you, Jill. I'm now thinking of reasons to bake sugar cookies...
