Spinach Ranch Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2011
Delicious and spot-hitting. I subbed some leftover homemade Caesar dressing for the ranch, which to us was a better pairing. Thanks for the tip from this column to steam the broc for 15-20 seconds, we appreciated that flavor boost. Also added almonds and cooked up a strip of bacon rather than those awful bits in a bottle. Overall, very glad to have this recipe in my r-box now.

Holiday Tossed Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2010
Liked almost everything except the pink dressing. Too pink! Not appetizing, and it was my own fault. I opted for Raspberry Pomegranate (Ken's Steak House brand) and it was just too dang bright! Next time, I'll go with a balsamic vinaigrette, which I think works fine with fruit, a nice contrast. I subbed feta for the cheddar and added sunflower seeds and a few rice noodles for crunch. But really, it was the dressing that I liked least. Not at all appetizing to look at. Pink pink pink!!

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
You can also some raisins in between the apple and peanut butter, to really enrich the flavor.

Turtle Cake II

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
Question: the pic from Earnesta shows a lovely dome. The recipe says to bake in a 9X13. How do you get the dome effect? Also confused about baking batter on top of a baked cake, how does that work? Thanks for the tips.
