Eclairs II

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2012
I made these today at the hospice where I volunteer. We had a new resident coming in and when I asked her daughter is she has any special favorites, she mentioned eclairs. These turned out really very good although watch your baking time. Mine were done before the time specified. It may be that the oven runs hot, though. Since it's not mine I haven't used an oven thermometer on it. I also got more than 9 eclairs and think they would have been HUGE if I had made only 9. But they are very, very tasty including the filling and the chocolate sauce. If you haven't made pate a choux (eclair dough) before it seems strange but follow the directions and they will amaze you and whoever you share them with. Thanks for a great recipe. Enjoy!

Pasta Fagioli II

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2012
I made this for Recipe Group and my kids and I really enjoyed it. I used to live in Utica, NY which has a very large Italian population so I enjoyed dishes like Pasta Fagioli from lunch take-outs. This recipe has more bacon than I remember, probably because those places were trying to cut back on food costs but more bacon is not a bad thing! Be sure to taste before adding salt. I like salty food but didn't need to add any. It was even better the second day when I heated it up for lunch. Thanks for a healthy and tasty recipe!

Lemony Garlic Shrimp with Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
Very good sauce. I did add salt at Baking Nana's suggestion but that's a personal preference. I also always make more sauce than a recipe calls for but, again, a personal preference. I plan to use this sauce with chicken, too. Really very good.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2011
This is good and easy. I thought that it didn't seem like enough chocolate but it turned out well. I have a hint to make it easier: measure the condensed milk in a microwave safe measuring cup. then put the remaining milk (it will be 1/4 cup) and the chocolate chips in the measuring cup warm in a microwave to melt the chocolate chips. It doesn't take long because of the high sugar content so watch it carefully.

Classic Tapioca Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2011
I volunteer at a local hospice by cooking. One of the residents asked for tapioca pudding this week and I used this recipe and it was wonderful. I probably used more vanilla than the recipe called for but otherwise, I followed it as written and it was wonderful. Thanks, Nicole!

Mom's Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2011
I made this at the hospice where I volunteer and it is wonderful! Made just as written using boneless skinless chicken thighs and it turned out just perfect. Real comfort food and still nutritionally sound. Try this recipe!

Peanut Butter Popcorn

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2011
This is very good. I used real popped popcorn (trying to economize). At first I thought it was going to be too marshmallow-ey for me because I am not a big fan of marshmallows but the taste of marshmallows seemed to mellow down. I did bake for 20 minutes or maybe a little more. I decided it would be better with a little more salt so I added a very small amount - maybe 1/4 tsp. I bet peanut butter varies in sodium level, though, so taste it before you add any. I think I will try it with crunchy peanut butter next time and I may toss some chocolate chips in after baking and then stir to let them melt around on the popcorn. I think I may send some of this in to my granddaughter's class for snack (they don't have any peanut allergies, thank goodness). UPDATE: I realized after writing this that the microwave popcorn would be salted - that's why I had to add salt when I used regular, natural popcorn.

Apple Crisp Cups

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2011
These are tasty and look impressive, too. It takes a bit of time to form the crusts so plan accordingly but they are worth the effort. Thanks, Weeble, these will be on my holiday "mini-pie and tassie plate".

Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2011
I have made this several times - can't believe that I never reviewed it until now. I make this in a slow cooker. It's wonderful to come home to especially on a chilly day. I added some chicken flavored, low sodium "Better Than Bouillon" today because my ham was not very flavorful. I also had one ear of leftover corn on the cob so I cut the kernels off and added them, It added a subtle sweet note that was good. Nice and rich and filling. A meal in a bowl.

Cheddar Onion Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2011
I used green onions as other reviewers did and I also needed to add an extra splash of milk. I am lactose intolerant and didn't want to buy buttermilk just for this recipe so I put a Tablespoon of cider vinegar into a measuring cup and then added enough lactose-free milk to make the one cup needed. These biscuits are really delicious. The perfect accompaniment to my "wow, Fall is here" chili.

Yummy Blueberry Cobbler

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2011
I made this today at the hospice where I volunteer. I used 3/4 cup sugar in the batter and 3/4 cup in the dry topping. It was slightly tart and delicious. I like the way the dry topping makes the batter crisp on the top. I will definitely use this recipe again at home.

White Chocolate Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
Very good! I left the walnuts out because my granddaughter doesn't like them but I think they would be GREAT with them. I used the zest from a whole medium orange and think I'll use two next time for more orange flavor. I also think I'll try them with half or even all chocolate chips. I really like the combination of orange and chocolate. Thanks for sharing a great recipe!

Donut Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2011
I love the cider donuts that are available in the Fall so I tweaked these muffins to resemble them. Not a huge fan of nutmeg, I substituted cinnamon for the nutmeg in the batter. Next time I think I will add a pinch of nutmeg along with a teaspoon of cinnamon. I also substituted cider for the milk. The result is wonderful! I did have butter left over after dipping the tops so I will melt less for that. In accordance with some other reviews, after dipping the tops, I rolled the entire muffin in the cinnamon and sugar mixture and as a result I ran out just before the last muffin! So I'll be a little heavy-handed with that next time but that's because I altered the recipe, not because the recipe was faulty. I made these little gems so that I can take some with me tomorrow to an interview for a volunteer position cooking at a local hospice. I hope they lke them as much as I do!

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2011
This was delicious!I used it on a chocolate cake - my favorite is the one on the back of the Hershey's cocoa can. I put this between the layers and on top and then colored some green and made pine trees and added gummy bears for a pine forest. Beat this frosting for quite a while and you'll get fluffy peanut butter goodness!

Caramel Macchiato Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2011
I had heard others rave about this and couldn't wait to try it. It turned out wonderful! I had three bananas that needed to be used so I used all three. I also have instant espresso so I used that. It is moist and delicious. I read on the Buzz that others had the glaze turn out crunchy. Make sure that you lower the temperature and just simmer for three minutes. Otherwise, you'll make penuche. I was taught to always add vanilla at the end off the heat to preserve maximum flavor so I did that in the glaze. I want to try this recipe again using pumpkin puree in place of the bananas. I bet that will be great, too. I will update my review and let you know!

Basil Vinaigrette Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2011
I love basil so I had to try this dressing and it did not disappoint. Nice balance of sweet (honey), sour (vinegar)and spicy (basil). This will be a staple in my house throughout the summer when fresh basil is readily available. Thanks NEERONDOGS!
