Microwave Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
I wrap a dry towel around ear of corn and then wet. It's easier then trying to get a limp wet towel around ear.

Bread and Celery Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
This is the basic recipe that appeared on the back of the small tins of McCormick poultry seasoning probably 50 years ago. Before bar codes took up all the room. It's a classic.

Spinach Lasagna with White Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
Basic recipe is very good, but I found recommended pan size to big. Maybe a 9x13. There's not enough sauce to cover top layer in bigger pan. We will make again.

Peppermint Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
This is a very good basic recipe that doesn't call for a ton of eggs. I would try the peppermint extract recommendation next time. Just made 2nd batch and changed my rating to 5 stars! I used 2 tsp peppermint extract, in place of 2 tsp van extract, as recommended above. It's super good. Our best yet!

Fruity Rice Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
I started with 6 cups of cooked long grain rice and added 2 cups each of the fruit and celery. I tried mayo and ranch 1/2 & 1/2 but found 1/4 cup ranch to 1 cup mayo more to our taste. I added the mandarin orange segments last on top and didn't mix in. They look good and when I tried to mix in they just disintegrate.

Crazy Crust Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
Didn't work for me. I poured in 12" low side pan, put in oven to "set" and after 15min I must admit it did look crazy. Big tough bubbles on top. I punched them down and used anyway but it was not much.

Connie's Zucchini "Crab" Cakes

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
Made twice. 1st time zucs were too watery. Next time we put in clean dish towel, folded over and twisted like crazy. That worked and they held together well. Very good.

Pear and Gorgonzola Cheese Pizza

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
Darn this is good and so quick and easy. We prefer thin crust. The Zpizza chain sells similar on flat bread. It's OK, but not as good as this homemade. Be sure to include the walnuts.

Chicken Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
My family kept saying, "this is really good" like they were amazed I actually cooked something so tasty. The only change I made was chicken broth instead of the water and added a tsp of corn starch in it. I just didn't trust the sauce to thicken as is. Had no broccoli but added red pepper which worked well.
