Classic Spanish Sangria

Reviewed: May 10, 2003
A good use of homemade wine, I added a little more juice (1/4 c. apple juice) and a variety of cut up fruit in the mixture - strawbs, cut grapes, kiwis - once discovered at a huge family dinner...GONE.

Basic Ham and Bean Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2003
This was delicious and easy. To save even more time, I threw the veggies in whole and pureed them in a small food processor after the soup was done, then added the puree to the broth. It makes for a thicker broth and my kids, who seem to have an aversion to vegetables, don't even know. I also added a 1/2 cup diced tomatoes and a 1/4 cup cooked spinach to the puree for added flavor. Thanks for a great recipe!

Asparagus Cashew Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2003
I used seasoned vegetable bouillon cubes for the broth. It was a huge hit, served as a side dish to roast beef. I think I would use a bit less butter next time, just because I'm always concerned about fat content and would like to use this recipe often. It would also be great with a variety of veggies, depending on the season/availability. Thank you for a wonderful recipe.

Berry Trifle

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2003
I used sliced jellyroll poundcake and lined the glass dish to give the trifle a 'pinwheel' design, but I followed the recipe to the letter and it was delightful. Thank you!

Shrimp and Avocado Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2001
Everyone loved the salad and thought the presentation was beautiful. I halved the Worcestershir sauce and doubled the amount of shrimp, and was very pleased with the results!

Cabbage Rolls II

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2000
The first time I made this, I found it a little on the dry side. The second time, I added 3 times the amount of tomato sauce, and it was wonderful. I served it as a side dish at Christmas and it got rave reviews.

Incredible Punch

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2000
This punch was a huge hit at our neighborhood Christmas baking exchange party. I cheated and added 13 oz. of vodka, which didn't seem to alter the flavor. At first glance, it looked like a big bowl of pink fluff!
