Chicken Scarpariello

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2000
This dish is quite delicious, but I prefer a stronger flavor in the meat, so I salted and peppered the chicken BEFORE sauteeing, and I browned the garlic in the oil BEFORE browning the chicken pieces, so that the oil was infused with the garlic flavor. This also made for faster preparation! Thanks Jill! Great recipe! It's so hard to find things my five-year-old husband really likes!

Cafeteria Carrot Souffle

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2000
This souffle tastes EXACTLY like the one made by Piccadilly Cafeteria! DEEEELICIOUS! There are a two caveats, though: 1. If you don’t have a food processor that will chop the carrots VERY fine, it’s not worth making this recipe – it will taste like…boiled carrots. I thought I could “chop” up the boiled carrots with my hand mixer, but it didn’t work too well. The large chunks of carrots didn’t taste good at all. It also didn’t look very appetizing. 2. If you are halving or otherwise modifying the amounts in the recipe, ROUND DOWN on the eggs. I rounded up, and it made the soufflé very eggy-tasting and too moist. Otherwise, GREAT recipe!

Crab Imperial II

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2003
DEEEEE-licious! Easy and quick to make. I portioned this into four 6-oz ramekins instead of the pie tin, and it was great. This is very spicy, so I think I will cut the cayenne in half next time. Definitely a keeper!

Chocolate Mousse Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2002
Can you say YUMMY??? The only thing I would do differently is chill the chocolate part until VERY firm (maybe overnight) because my whipped cream topping (I used peppermint instead of almond) just kind of sunk into the chocolate, since the chocolate was still quite soft after 1 hour.

Pan De Sal II

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2003
These rolls taste really good, but I tried the recipe twice, and both times, it came out really heavy; it hardly rose at all. Maybe I need to go lighter on the flour?

Grand Marnier Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2002
DELICIOUS! This is a very wet, soft brownie, with the perfect amount of Grand Marnier. I would recommend cutting them into 1-inch squares because they're so rich. HINT: pour the batter into the pan, and then sprinkle the chocolate chips on top of the batter. (Mine sunk to the bottom and melted.)

Eggnog Quick Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2002
This bread tastes REALLY good, but the recipe definitely needs to be tweaked. Even after I added extra oil, as another reviewer did, I found this bread still very dry. (Maybe a little less flour?) Anyway, this was really good in a trifle, because the custard made up for the dryness of the bread.

Cuban Pork Roast II

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2000
I marinated the roast for only 24 hours; I think it might need at least 48. Also, it was not as flavorful as it could have been, (despite using a total of 16 cloves of garlic) so next time I will definitely salt and pepper the roast before cooking it. Otherwise, the marinade made it pretty good!

Boiled Custard

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2001

French Tourtiere

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2004
This pie is DELICIOUS! Even my five-year-old husband who refuses to eat like an adult LOVED this dish! It was easy to make and tastes great. I was nervous about using a spice like mace on meat, but the spices were perfect. I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe!

Buttermilk Pie I

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2000
Out of curiousity, I tried this recipe -- it's pretty good, especially if you're a custard fan! The buttermilk gives it a different sort of tanginess.

Pumpkin Cheesecake II

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2002
This is by far the best cheesecake recipe I've ever tried! It is creamy and rich, without being too heavy. It was gone in no time!

Easy Mini Quiches

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2007
This was flavorful, but not a quiche! I would call it a muffin.

Curry Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2000
I used Perdue Shortcuts to prepare this. It's nice to have an alternative to tuna salad, since I am on a low-carb diet. This tastes GREAT!

Easy Creamy Vanilla Fudge

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2004
This tastes like cheap icing. If you don't cook it long enough, it's runny, if you cook it too long, it flakes and hardens. But it really does taste just like hardened confectioner's sugar.

Butter Cookie Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2012
I cut back on the butter because others said it was greasy, but other than that, I followed the recipe. I wanted an easy crust for my kids to use with an almond pear tart. Well, it WAS easy, but the taste really took over the whole tart. I thought the crust was too sweet and too hard, and the cinnamon was quite strong. I don't think I'll use this again.

Seafood Salad III

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2011
I didn't like this at all. To me, the whole thing tasted like sweetened mayonnaise and green peppers. I tried adding more vinegar, but it didn't improve the taste. I am looking for a recipe like the seafood salads you get in restaurants, but this is not it.
