Hearts of Palm Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2011
This recipe is great as written. I've subsequently made it w/ a few changes - I use all kalamata olives (I don't like canned black olives) and instead of using the dry dressing mix, olive oil, water & vinegar - I used a tasty champagne vinaigrette from trader joe's (just simpler & more cost effective - TJ also has a good price on the palm hearts) I use real bacon (not a fan of the 'bits'). Let the flavors blend overnight, but add the crumbled bacon just before serving so it stays crunchy. You can also toss this w/ some chopped mixed greens. Thanks for the recipe.

Syracuse Salt Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2007
A blast from the past. Such a delicious and simple side dish. You can throw in some fresh dill or parsley etc for looks, but these are so tasty they really don't need anything else. These are best served the same day...they lose some of their flavor as leftovers the next day.

Balsamic Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2007
These were good, but I was expecting a little bit more. I love balsamic vinegar - I ended up adding a little bit extra because I just couldn't taste it enough. But, this was still missing something. After a couple more bites I figured it out...and tossed in some freshly grated PARMESAN cheese. It added just the right touch and was a perfect fit with the other flavors in the dish. Thanks.

Zesty Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2007
Delicious. I lightly browned 4 chicken breasts (first seasoned w/ salt & pepper) and shredded them before adding to the chowder. I love the chunks of potato from the soup (I used Campbells brand) I tasted it as written, then added a sprinkle of chili powder & cumin and topped with just a pinch of some finely chopped cilantro. This was really good and so easy (and quick) to make. My 3 y.o. even liked this. You can easily adjust the spiciness to your liking. Thanks.

Crab Croissant-wiches

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2007
Good recipe. I used imitation krab :) (shredded really well) and these were fine. Use regular crescent rolls and regular cream cheese, NOT LITE(they did NOT taste good this way!). I added some onion powder and a dash of hot pepper sauce for some flavor. Also, chive/different flavors of cream cheese works really well, too. Thanks for the recipe.

Corn Dog Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2007
Good recipe. I left out the celery and onion to make mine REALLY kid friendly (if making for grown-ups I'd definitely leave it in), and instead I added celery salt* and onion powder. Used a box of Jiffy corn bread mix and turkey hot dogs (watch the celery salt if you use regular hot dogs - might make it too salty) I halved the recipe and baked in an 8x8 pan for 20 mins - any longer would've been too much (next time I'll bake for 18mins). Be careful of the timing, especially if you omit the onion and celery, as they add moisture. I DID use the sage in this. I think that if you use light or vegetarian franks in this, it is a good idea to kick up the cornbread. If you use regular hot dogs, you may not need the sage...it's a matter of personal cornbread preference, I guess (I'm from the south and I like seasoned cornbread) Thanks for the recipe.

Unbelievably Easy and Delicious Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
This makes a fantastic vegetarian "chili"! I've also made it w/ground beef in place of the veggie crumbles, and with or without beans. It is really good and I love that it is SO easy. It's good for everyone...grown ups, kids - everyone who likes "chili" (and even some who don't!)will enjoy this. Chili Snobs may sneer, but I'm telling you this is a surprisingly delicious, easy recipe. Thanks

Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2005
WOW!!! I love it. So simple, so good. I have used this with frozen asparagus spears, too - simply microwave for a minute or two until no longer frozen, then drain/pat dry and finish in the oven as teh recipe states. The sauce is so wonderful and would be great with any veggie - green beans, even corn, and is fantastic drizzled over chicken and fish. I've even cut the butter to 1 tablespoon, and it's still delicious. This is a new staple in my home. Thank you for the recipe.

Tan

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2005
WOW. Long ago a friend's mom made this for us as an after-school snack, and I've been searching for this recipe! So very delicious! DO NOT BE AFRAID to try this recipe. So simple, versatile, healthy & tasty! Be sure to stir the dressing ingredients until the sugar dissolves completely. Eat this on its own, or toss w/ some salad greens & top w/crumbled blue cheese & toasted pecans (serve w/ some extra dressing). Instead of dicing the apples, simply slice them and toss w/ dressing in a ziploc bag - makes a great snack for kids. Different & special. REALLY DELICIOUS!! Try it, you'll love it.

Pumpkin Crescent Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2005
FANTASTIC! These are addictive. They were very easy to make. I'm not sure why some reviewers had problems with the filling oozing out. Chill the filling for about 1 hour before using and, as the instructions state, SPREAD the filling over the dough triangle - don't just place a spoonful at the widest part and try to roll it up over that - spread it out over the triangle to within about 1/4 inch from the edge (I used 1 heaping measuring teaspoon of filling for each). Then roll very loosely. I drizzled melted white chocolate over these after they had cooled. I made these the night before for a party. They are delicious warm from the oven, AND are still yummy served at room temp the next day (wrapped them in plastic wrap and refrigerated overnight - took them out of the fridge about 2 hours before serving) So delicious & easy - a hit at the party I took them to. Thanks! P.S. The recipe makes A LOT of filling - I used 8 cans of crescent dough and still hade plenty of filling left (could easily fill 10 - 12 cans of crescents)

Chocolate Mint Candy Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2005
This was very good. The filling / topping is DELICIOUS! The minty-ness is not overpowering, but rather subtle. Rather than make a whole "pie", I made individual "bites" by spooning the brownie mix into mini-muffin tins before baking (one pkg brownie mix makes about 30 minis). When they were done, I pressed a well into the center of each (while still warm). Topped with the filling and one Junior Mint candy on top of each.(I put the filling into a gallon ziploc bag & cut a bit off the corner so I could "pipe" the filling into the brownie cups) Brought them to two parties, and received many compliments. Thanks for the recipe

White Peach Sangria

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2005
Sooo good. AND this is one of those great recipes that looks as good as it tastes! I accidentally doubled the vodka in this recipe (I swear, it WAS an accident) Also, I couldn't find peach vodka! So I used regular Absolut instead - and this was still delicious. Served this in a clear glass pitcher - so beautiful & so very tasty & EASY to make! I love it. Thanks.

Feta Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2005
Great recipe; simple and so VERSATILE! I used plain crumbled feta and sprinkled some oregano over that. Also, I seasoned the chicken w/ salt & pepper. So good & so EASY! I should have pounded mine a little bit thinner though - mine were more like 1/2 inch than 1/4 inch. Next time I'll be sure to pound them properly (so the chicken will be even more tender). I'm also going to try this again w/ricotta cheese inside the chicken and top w/ marinara and mozzarella. Found this gem thanks to DavidP's Summer Bites! list. Thanks DavidP & Debbie.

Sweet Polish Sausage

This was good. The sauce had great flavor. To me, this recipe is best served as a party dish - done in the crock pot.

Cider Vinegar Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2005
Good recipe. I did NOT find it too tangy at all - the vinegar ends up blending with all of the juice/liquid let off by the chicken. Could use a little perking up - next time I will add crushed garlic, maybe seasoning salt/celery salt, pepper, paprika.

Cheesy Catfish

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2005
Very good. I used Tilapia, and based on some of the "soggy" reviews, I omitted the milk, used breadcrumbs instead of flour, and baked for 25 mins, then broiled for 3 mins (baking time will vary based on the thickness of your fillets. Nice, crispy and flavorful as well as easy. I'll make this again w/ other fish & chicken. Thanks.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2005
Great and easy recipe! I had some frozen tilapia filets and needed a quick & easy recipe. My favorite thing about this recipe is that it was so easy. Fish was nice and moist. My husband loved the topping (next time I'll make extra)and I even used LITE mayo! (hellmans is the best). This would really work with almost any kind of fish. Thanks!

Kettle Corn

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2005
A good old fashioned recipe. My Grandfather has been making this for many years - always with BROWN sugar (the flavor is so much better!)Here's a trick to make it a little easier: bring the "sauce" ingredients to a simmer in a small pan on the stove top; meanwhile pop a bag or two of popcorn in the microwave. Pour the popped corn into a large bag. While the popcorn is still hot, drizzle the "glaze" over the popcorn in the bag, fold the bag down a few times and then SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE! Make sure you shake it really well to coat all of the kernels. My grandpa would let us all take turns shaking the bag. Simply pour it into a bowl and toss the bag - no pan to clean!

Caramelized Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2005
Really good - a nice change from the usual "buffalo" wings. I omitted the oil, because I felt that the wings would produce enough fat. I also broiled these for a few minutes at the end of the cooking time. I think omitting the oil & broiling helped these get crispy & carmelized (and not soggy). I made this recipe as well as the Candied Garlic Wings recipe from this site on the same night for a "taste test" - and we agreed that this one was better (more flavorful - must be the ketchup!)
