Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
Good recipe, but maybe the parm cheese I used was to pungent because it overwhelmed the dish. I think next time I'll just use a cup of cheese.

Blackberry Peach Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2010
Really good and a big hit with the family. I probably added more corn starch than required because I put heaping tablespoons in the mix so I didn't find this runny like some reviews' mentioned. But a note of warning: I did have to put a sheet pan on the bottom of the oven because some of the juices did spill over when it was baking. It was so easy to make and a delicious solution to the fresh blackberries my mom gave me. (I got sick of always making jam from them) I'm making this again very soon especially since I've got requests to make this for my in-laws and other relatives. Thank you for a terrific recipe!

Buttermilk Pound Cake II

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2010
Really nice pound cake. I didn't have lemon extract so I followed one review and did it with juice from a fresh lemon and zest. Then I finished it off with a lemon glaze (confection sugar with lemon juice).

Zucchini and Razor Clam Fritters

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2010
Wow, this was amazing. Combining zucchini with clams a great tasty idea. I did adjust the recipe because I didn't have some of the ingredients on hand. I used only 3 eggs and used scallions instead of onions. Also, my zucchini was shredded not diced because I had extra shredded zucchini from zucchini bread I was baking. And I used half a cup of clam juice with half a cup of milk. Sorry, I know these changes might affect the results so I plan to make this exactly next time. I just had to say thank you for a great recipe. UPDATE: yep, made it again this week and this time followed the recipe to a "T" (well, almost, I still had to use shredded zucchini because husband hates zucchini so I have to make it as invincible as possible) but boy, was it good. I made this twice in one week so I think that speaks volumes. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

Tomato Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2010
This dish was okay for me. I did use fresh herbs instead of dry but I just wasn't crazy for it. It did make a nice side for the steak. I might need to give it another go with dry herbs and take everyone's advice on letting the tomatoes drain first.

Waffles I

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2010
Great recipe and soooo easy to make. But i did add a spoon of brown sugar and I added more vanilla by accident. I was afraid it would overwhelm the taste but luckily the waffles didn't taste like vanilla and they weren't sweet. (husband doesn't like sweet waffles so he loved these). This recipe is a keeper and will be using it again and again.

Healthy Garden Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2010
I've made this salad so many times now and keep forgetting to review it. I have followed the recipe exactly but sometimes I just don't have all the ingredients on hand so if I don't have limes then I use lemon juice instead. And I've also had to substitute grapeseed oil with extra virgin olive oil. Simply Delicious! I've even substituted the beans for other beans...still delicious. Of course I prefer the black beans because they just have that perfect texture. But this is a summer time favorite for my family!

Honey Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2010
Excellent breakfast! I followed this exactly but didn't have enough raisins so I added chopped apples like other reviews recommended and it was sooooo good! Okay, maybe I didn't follow it exactly because I also added a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg. Really good!

Fresh Strawberry Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2010
I would recommend waiting more than an hour before serving because an hour or so after baking I had the first bite and was disappointed because the strawberries tasted bitter and they didn't take form but were runny. But a few hours later and my family all took a slice and the strawberries held together beautifully. They all raved and loved it. My husband even had seconds, and I was suprised when he said "I don't like it, I love it!" So I had a slice later and found that it was really good and didn't have that bitter taste that i noted earlier. The day after and I'm having my another slice and it honestly tastes better than yesterday. I will make this again soon.

Fabulous Zucchini Grinders

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2010
Wow! Just had this for lunch and it was amazing. I did add two extra ingredients to the zucchini when I was browning them: 2.25oz can of sliced olives and two button mushrooms chopped up. I also took other's advice to toast the bread before adding the zucchini mix and I put the zucchini between two layers of cheese. This is better than the chicken parm sandwhiches I get at the sandwhich shops.

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2010
This is a family favorite. I've made this so many times already and keep forgetting to write a review. My hubby doesn't care for eggplant and would refuse to eat any...until now when one day he tried a bite and went for a full helping and then had seconds...You just have to try this, its easy to make and so good. I follow the recipe exactly but today I'm adding mushrooms to the spaghetii sauce for variety.

Rosemary Steak

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
Followed the recipe exactly and the reviews were mixed. I didn't care for it and will probably not make it again but others loved it.

Italian Anisette Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2009
These cookies are AMAZING!!! I followed the incredients exactly but I also read the reviews and noticed how everyone changed the baking powder amount, which I guess Heather corrected to 1 tablespoon which is what I used. Absolutely delicious!! When I was glazing them I sprinkled some green and red sugar crystals to make them more festive for the holidays. I did run out of Anise extract so for the glaze I used almond extract. Thank you for the recipe Heather, they remind me of something my Grandmother use to make. Brings back wonderful memories and the kitchen smells great!

Tender Potato Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2009
First time I've made biscuits and it won't be the last. These were soooo good!! I can't think of a better way to use up left over mash potatoes. My mash potatoes had garlic and herbs so I didn't find these biscuits too sweet like the other reviews but I also added a bit of parm cheese.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
Good cookie, it had a moist cake-like texture to it. Next time I'm going to follow the suggestions from the reviewers because I found the icing too sweet.

Blushing Cranberry Pears

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2009
Really lovely recipe. I love the flavor the cinnamon stick gives to it. And it smells really good. After it cooled the juice left the pretty "blush" on the pears. I was really impressed. When I make it for dinner guests, I might try to thicken the sauce to serve it as a garnish to the pears and follow the advice of others by cutting the bottom so it can stand up making a pretty display. But today there were no frills and we all enjoyed it.

Ray's Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2009
Great chicken marinade!! Used it on chicken breasts and then made a grilled chicken wrap. It didn't need any dressing/sauces just added some lettuce, shredded carrots and onions...simply delicious! None of the flavors were overwhelming, they just somehow work perfectly together. I wouldn't change a thing. Going to use the left overs for quesadillas tonight. Thank you for the recipe.

Shrimp, Leek and Spinach Risotto

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2009
Wonderful recipe and has become a family weekend favorite. Risotto is just a bit time consuming for me. I've made this recipe quit a few times now and play around with the ingredients depending on what I have available especially the scallops. (My husband loves them and I'm not a big fan so I never mind if their missing). I do always add more broth than what is asked for because it doesn't come out right with just 4 cups. I think a 3 to 1 ratio works better. You must give this recipe a try! Its really good!

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2009
Good recipe and easy to make. Didn't give a full five stars because I was measuring it up to my favorite salmon recipes one that I usually grill and the other has leeks. I followed this recipe exactly but felt like it needed something. I guess I was expecting "something" more with the pecans and dijon but was a bit disappointed. The next time I think I'll spread the dijon mix all over the fish and I should have had a squeeze of lemon on the side, that may have made a difference. Thank you for the recipe though. My dad had 2 helpings and everyone else really enjoyed it.
