California Roll Sushi

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2012
My kids and I enjoyed this but for some reason the flavoring of the rice bothered me a little. I think it's because I could taste the rice over everything else. Otherwise a good, simple and enjoyable treat.

Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2012
I didn't change a thing and it was perfect! I received requests to make it again before it was gone...that's how scrumptious this was.

Cream Puff Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2012
Fantastic! Though I would call it more of an "eclair cake". I cut the recipe in half and prepared it in a round 9 1/2" cake pan. I got SO many compliments and was even told by my sister in law that this is her favorite dessert I've made. Even tastes great the next day though the crust is soggy by then.

Szechuan Beef

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2012
This was so easy to prepare and delicious. I wish it were spicier but I guess it was fine since my kids ate it and asked for seconds! Oh, and I also added thinly sliced carrots for color.

Banana Blast II

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2012
Very good, creamy and nice taste! I made this for my son and his friend and wasn't sure what they'd think...they both liked it a lot.

Candied Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2012
Excellent taste but some cutlets came out too dry. I'm not sure where I went wrong but my husband loved them anyway!

Dog Biscuits I

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2011
So easy and my dog loved them. I didn't have wheat germ and used grape nuts cereal instead and it worked! My daughter and I made a batch of them for our family's dogs for Christmas.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2011
I browned the meat before placing it into my slow cooker but otherwise I changed nothing. This was excellent and full of flavor. You could even serve this over egg noodles to feed more.

Mushroom, Leek, Chicken Sausage and Tortellini Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2011
Go easy on the hot sauce! I gave this four stars only because 3 tablespoons of hot sauce may ruin this for some. I started with 1 tablespoon thinking I would add more as I went but one was enough! Excellent taste, my husband liked this one a lot. Also, as several people said, put the tortellini in only at the very end according to package directions or you'll end up with mush. Excellent warm weather treat!

Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2011
Excellent "go-to" cool weather soup. I used fat free half and half and celery instead of carrots (what I had) and it was excellent. Second time I'll use carrots just to see the difference in taste. It's gotta be great either way!

Chocolate Bar Fondue

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2011
Kids and adults loved it. The alcohol is not a factor as it only adds flavor to the chocolate.

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2011
Easy and delicious! I made this for Thanksgiving and it got rave reviews. I also made sugared limes to garnish the edge of the pie with the unused Key limes.

Unstuffing Side Dish

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
Excellent Thanksgiving side dish. I only gave it 4 stars because the ingredients of 2 1/2 cups of broth is misleading. It should say "approximately", then I would have paid attention to "add enough broth to moisten". It turned out a bit soggy. The taste was great though. This is the first time I've ever made a home made stuffing that wasn't all meat and potatoes. I put a little into a small casserole just so I could taste it. It is outstanding. My daughter tried it and said "OMG it's SO good! No, wait...it's BEYOND good, it's EXCELLENT!"...she finished the bowl.

Garlic and Leek Ditalini

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
So tasty and simple! I happened to have a "leftover" leek and looked up any recipe to use it and came across this one. I had everything but the cream so I used fat free half and half that I had on hand. Delicious! My kids gobbled it up and requested that I make it again as soon as possible.

Eggplant Croquettes

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2011
I couldn't even wait to finish frying these before sampling one...yum! I used Sargento's reduced fat four cheese Italian instead of the cheddar but otherwise I followed the recipe. I can't wait for my husband to try these...I will definitely make these again.

Five Hour Stew

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2011
This was so tasty! I made a few changes though...I used fresh ingredients, substituted celery for the water chestnuts, left out the tapioca and used Marsala wine instead of Burgundy. I browned the beef in a pan first and then put everything into my crockpot and cooked it on low for 5 hours. I served it over egg noodles and my family loved it and went in for seconds!

Pierogi (Polish Dumplings)

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2011
The dough tasted like I remember my Polish grandmother used to make, however the potato stuffing wasn't quite the way I remembered it though it was quite good. My daughter even said they tasted better than the store bought ones. Very time consuming. My grandmother used to make large ones, so after rolling out and cutting several 3 inch circles I decided to pull individual balls of dough and roll them out separately...this worked great. All in all it's a good recipe...it just needs some tweaking based on individual tastes.
