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!

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.

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!

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!

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.

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!

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.

Best Zucchini Appetizer

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2003
I added a 1/2 tsp dry mustard, a 1/4 tsp curry powder, about 1/2 cup Italian seasoned tomatoes that were left over from another dinner, then added a handful of fresh herbs from my garden.....some Italian parsely, dill, oregano. I added a bit more garlic. I also used green onion instead of regular onion, then threw in about two TBSP more of the baking mix so it wouldn't be too mushy. The end result was very pleasing, and the dinner party guests all raved about the appetizer. Personally, the jury is still out, but I am going to freeze the leftovers, and serve it at my next party in a few weeks.Can't argue with the masses.

Mom's Best Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2003
Very easy, results are consistently good. You need a candy thermometer, because testing the candy for readiness is tricky and best left for the experienced candy-makers. And heating the ingredients to 310 degrees as opposed to 300 degrees may leave it a little burnt tasting. Try modifying the types of nuts used for some very nice results.

Grasshopper Pie II

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2004
Very nice. I froze mine instead of chilling it, and I added slightly less liqueur, just a personal preference. This is a foolproof recipe and a keeper.

Rhubarb Crunch

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2004
This is such a great basic recipe: I found that if I altered the ingredients, ie., less sugar, more fruit, various types of fruit -- it always comes out delicious. A real winner.

Spinach Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2005
I cubed and baked the tofu at 350F for 20 minutes first, as someone suggested. I also used frozen spinach. This was delicious and even more flavorful the next day. I will make this again and again!

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2005
I found this to be bit too tangy for my tastes the first time I made it, so I added 2 Tbsps brown sugar to cut it down a bit. I also added 1 tsp paprika and 1/8 tsp cayenne. That really helped, but the balsamic flavor was still a little strong, so next time I'll cut back on the vinegar and add chicken stock to top up to the 1/2 cup. Very nice recipe - thank you!

Amazing Chicken

Reviewed: May 21, 2006
Really easy, fast. I used dry commercial stuffing mix instead of seasoned bread crumbs. The chicken stayed moist. My kids ate it.
