Yummy Bok Choy Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2004
This is a delicious recipe! This is the first time I have used BABY Bok Choy - it was tender and delicious (the large bok choy is more tough and better cooked). I was muching on the leaves - so tender and wonderful flavor, you can use practically every bit, stems and all. The dressing was delicious. I used low-sodium soy sauce and half a bunch of green onions, as mine were huge. I would recommend either doubling the salad or halving the dressing, as it made a lot of dressing. Also, better eaten right away because the noodles get soggy by the next day (maybe sprinkle them on top and don't mix them in?). Thanks so much for sharing!

The Best Zucchini Dip Ever

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2004
Four stars for a great idea! I loved it with some modifications. I made it like I make my artichoke dip. First, I like the zucchini peeled for a nicer color/appearance. Second, sugar and soy sauce sounded bad, and I left those out. Then I added lots more garlic, a lot of finely-grated Asiago cheese, and a little S&P. The dried oregano is a good addition. Awesomely delicious this way! Yum. Good with vegies or on Italian bread.

Sensational Sirloin Kabobs

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2004
Made half the recipe, as just the two of us here. Left out the tomatoes. Definitely recommend fresh pineapple - it was delicious! We really enjoyed this and will definitely make again! Yum.

Stuffed Green Peppers I

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2004
Excellent! My husband loved it. Made a few changes, though...did things the "hard" way. Used twice as much onion, diced fresh tomatoes (1 3/4 cups), and precooked Jasmine rice (2 cups). I cut my peppers in half lengthwise before stuffing, covered with sauce (2 cans + 2/3 c water) and, finally, sprinkled a little extra cheddar cheese on top before baking. Yum - thanks so much for the wonderful recipe!

Cherry Cider

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2004
This really is a 5* recipe, but it needed a little help. I used 1.6 qt juice, added some cloves along with the cinnamon, a few squirts of lemon juice, and the juice of 1 orange (about 1/2 cup). Now it's five *****!

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2004
Had this along with our 4th of July BBQ dinner. Added some chopped green onions as I used dried basil leaves and needed some color, and used sour dough. Delicious.

Zucchini Cobbler

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2004
Who came up with this remarkable recipe? Congratulations! It deserves a $10,000 prize for being so tasty and creative! I did cut back on the butter to cut calories and the crust was more crumbly (but still good). Also I stirred the cinnamon into the crust ingreds instead of on top, which is probably why it looked pale. The lemon is just right - do NOT cut it! This is now one of my new favorite recipes! The husband loved it, too. Thank you, Beverly, for the ingenious recipe!

Cherry Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2004
Wow! My husband loves chocolate-cherry flavor, so I tried this for Father's Day - he (and I) totally loved it! Used 2 oz unsweeted chocolate, as I was out of cocoa; creamed the butter/sugar 5 mins on my Kitchenaide mixer to incorporate air; and used cake flour as suggested in recipe. Cake came out very light, moist and delicious. Frosted with chocolate buttercream (3 cup pdr sugar, 1/4 c. milk, 3/4 tsp vanilla, 3 Tb butter). Baked 35 mins at 350, 9x13 pan. Definitely recommend to chocolate-cherry lovers!

Banana Nut and Ginger Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2004
Delicious, moist, and I love that it is low in fat (I did add the oil, tough). The batter looks thin and filled the loaf pain so much I thought it might overflow and so took a little out. It came out beautifully. The dates and beer make it delicious (used Samuel Snmith's Oltmea Stout). You can't taste the banana - more like a date bread, delicious.

Tapioca Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2004
There must be a "secret" missing from this recipe. Mine came out watery and curdled. I pretty much followed the recipe as written. Maybe 15 minutes on top of the stove is too much? Mine looked very thick and almost completely cooked by 12 minutes, and I did NOT let it boil. I then put it in the pan, baked it 20 mins, stirred in the raisins (I had forgotten them) and vanilla, etc., as written, but it came out terrible.

Kielbasa and Potato Bake

Reviewed: May 28, 2004
Great flavor! Mine turned out great. I used a little less milk, half the S&P. I added a little chopped onion and celery, and diced the potatoes very small (1/2"), as suggested. Made half the recipe in an 8" square pan (3 cups diced potatoes), baked it at 350 for 1hr & 15 mins, and it came out perfect! Next time, I may use less kielbasa or else cut it up (it was very strong - I used Hillshire Farms Turkey Kielbasa).

Ground Beef Enchiladas

Reviewed: May 6, 2004
Don't know what all the rave reviews are about. We liked the beef filling, but the sauce was awful.

Granola

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2004
Good banana flavor, no fat recipe. After reading others' comments, I made sure mine was "crunchy." I doubled the brown sugar and baked at 300 degrees for 50-60 minutes (stirring every 15 mins). Also, I added coconut and walnuts about halfway through the baking so they would be toasted, too. Added 1 cup each of raisins and dried cranberries.

Sunshine Toast

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2004
I've been making these forever. We call them "egg in a hole." But we cut the hole, drop in the egg, cook that side, then flip over and lightly fry on the other side, so egg is cooked on both sides (sunny-side up!). The yolk stays soft.

Strawberry Angel Food Dessert

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2004
Heavenly! Wonderful recipe for BBQs or 4th of July. I used boxed mix for the cake, which made a lot, but the whole thing did fit a 9x13 pan. Use a fork to tear apart the cake. I put one layer of cake, then the cream cheese layer, another cake layer, and then the strawberry layer. I used my strawberry pie recipe for the berry layer (cook 5 minutes 1 qt berries, 1 cup sugar, 3 Tb cornstarch, and 1 Tb lime juice, little water if thick). This is a keeper, but next time I will use 12 oz Cool whip to make it more creamier.

Denny's Amazing Five Minute Asiago Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2004
Good flavor. Used canned artichoke hearts, drained them, and pulsed a few times in the food processor. Added 1/4 tsp garlic salt and 1 tsp parsley for more flavor and color, although the cheese gives it the great flavor. Also I baked it at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes (don't own a microwave). I would serve this to company and will definitely make again!

Nanny's Bucka

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2004
I made these twice. First time, followed recipe and they came out heavy, doughy, and bland. Next time, I added 2 tsp baking powder, 2 tsp sugar, and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Much better and I would definitely recommend the baking powder. All in all, a recipe for kids.

Popcorn Nachos

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2004
Very good and husband ate it up. Used 1 tsp chili powder instead of red pepper flakes, and added a little garlic salt. Soggy the next day, I think because of the cheese. Good without the cheese, too. Will make it again.

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2004
Mine came out soft because I used "light" cream cheese (you have to use regular cream cheese to be firm enough for a ball). I served it in a bowl with chocolate graham cracker sticks. I used less butter. Very good.

Queen Elizabeth Cake II

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2004
I have a similar recipe, but mine uses only 1 cup of chopped dates. Also, I put 1/2 c choc chips in the batter, and sprinkled 1/2 c on top - mine was delish! Maybe the author really means 1 cup of dates? (1 lb = 2-1/2 cups pitted dates). But I have to give this 5* because it is so good!
