Lynn's Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2002
This cake is moist and delicious. One little change: I used 1 cup of oil and 1/2 cup orange juice instead of the 1 1/2 cup oil. Also used chocolate fudge icing. But it's good enough to serve w/o frosting. Everyone loved the cake and wanted recipe. Thanks!

Zucchini Apple Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2002
It was good, but I think I should have cooked the zucchini slices longer. Wasn't sure what "tender-crisp" meant. Makes me realize the flavor of apple pie must be in the spices more than the apples.

Squash and Tomatoes a la Old Bay®

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2002
A summer stand-by, but I had never thought to add the Old Bay. Yummy!

Basic Yummy Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2002
I needed to look in a couple of cookbooks to find out what to do with the oysters, since I had never used them before. Their advice: simmer about 5 minutes in saucepan, drain and chop. Also, I needed much more than 1/2 cup drippings. I used chicken broth (about a cup or more). Most people liked this at our pitch-in. I guess you need to like the flavor of oysters. I would also advise greasing the baking dish. Enjoy!

Chai Tea Mix

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2003
A tip to find cardamom for a lot less than $7-8 or more an ounce: look in the bulk section of health food stores. I found it for $20.49 per POUND at Nature's Market in Indianapolis.

Shemakes Instant Chai Tea

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2003
A tip to find some less expensive cardamom: look in the bulk section of health food stores. I found some for $20.49 per POUND, instead of $7 or $8 an ounce in the grocery.

Mandarin Chicken Skillet

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2003
We both enjoyed this dish, over rice as others suggested. It is very colorful and would be nice enough for a casual company meal. Easy to do some of the steps ahead (cook the chicken, broccoli, etc) so there is little to do at the last minute. Heed the advice of a previous reviewer: don't cook the mandarin oranges. :)

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2003
This is simply terrific. The only slight change I made was to NOT add the garlic salt (I thought the soy sauce was enough salt.) I baked it in foil as someone else recommended, so clean up was easy. Very tasty recipe--good enough to impress company.

Black Bean and Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2003
Followed recipe with one exception: I used "Melon Seed Pasta" instead of couscous. Very good, everyone liked it. Will make often. Thanks.

Mocha Ricotta Creme

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2003
This is a great dessert! HOWEVER, there are huge differences in textures and flavors of different brands of Ricotta Cheese. Also between low-fat and no-fat. Experiment to find the kind you like. Great with other flavorings also. You must be a canolli or cheesecake lover to appreciate this yummy treat.

Jewish Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2005
Nice texture and flavor. Personally, I think it needs no icing, especially as a cake to eat with coffee. I used margarine instead of butter. Did a little something different with the cinnamon filling: I used brown sugar and cinnamon and mixed the butter (margarine) in with the beaters I mixed the cake batter with. Added a large dollop of the cake batter to form a thick cinnamon batter. I used a bundt pan (greased) and put down a layer of the cake batter, made a little trough with my spatula and put in the cinnamon batter, then covered it with remaining cake batter. Baked for 45 minutes at 350 in the bundt pan.

Quinoa Side Dish

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2005
Very good, but I'm confused about the rinsing. I've looked at other recipes that involve toasting the quinoa first and they don't mention rinsing. I checked out a site that sells it and they say they pre-rinse so the consumer doesn't need to. Guess it depends on the kind you buy?

Chewy Chocolate Cookies III

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2005
These are great brownie-cookies. Followed recipe with one exception: one cup of chocolate chips is enough for me. To dress them up for a Christmas party, add a little pink peppermint frosting & crushed candy canes.

Apricot Rosemary Roasted Parsnips and Carrots

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2006
Easy to make; beautiful presentation. Delicious! I served with a spicy chicken dish and the sweetness of the vegetables was a good compliment. Used Smart Balance margarine instead of butter or margarine. No problem.

Honey Oat Beer Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2006
This bread was easy to put together and looked beautiful. Took about ten minutes longer to bake. No one cared for it because of the strong bitter taste from the beer.(Used Sam Adams).

Tasty Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2007
The smell while this dish bakes is almost enough reason to make it. Very tasty way to make chicken. I did not add the salt and used low-sodium soy sauce. Also used onions instead of shallots. Just before the covered baking period, I added potatoes and carrots to the pan. Very good dinner! Thanks for sharing recipe.

Vietnamese Fresh Spring Rolls

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2007
These are so good. And the suggestions from other cooks are excellent. My idea, to make life easier for the cook, is to have all ingredients available and have each person "roll their own". This is what we do with tacos and it works with spring rolls too. That way, they can be individualized and the guests have the fun of making their own spring roll.

Jan's Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2007
Made this cake for my dad's 85th birthday, with requested Coconut Pecan Frosting II (from this site). Since I had part of a can of evaporated milk from the frosting, I used it and filled the cup with skim for the cake. Added lemon juice to make "buttermilk". Can't understand the negative reviews for this cake. I too had to bake extra time to get the middle done. It was still a little gooey, but tasty!

Coconut Pecan Frosting II

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2007
This is what the canned frosting from the store is trying to taste like--but failing. After you make this, you'll never eat the canned stuff again! So good. Regarding the directions, I would add "mix & heat the milk, sugar, and butter, and then add by spoonfuls to the egg yolks in a separate bowl, mixing while adding. Add about three or four spoonfuls and then put that yolk mixture in the pan with the rest of the mixture". Also, I always remove the chalaza (the little white squiggly thing in the egg). Otherwise, you may find it cooked in your frosting--yuck.

Zucchini Crisp

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2007
We liked this even more the next day when it was cold from the refrigerator. I added a little flour to the sugar and spice mixture. Made a nice sauce for the "apples". Very tasty dessert.
