Overnight Apple Cinnamon French Toast

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2003
The flavor of this french toast is really great, but you really need to make sure this is cooked completely through! At 60 minutes, mine looked done, but was still very wet at the bottom of the bread layer. We had to do a little improvising under the broiler, but all reviews were still very positive! This is a keeper for sure... longer cook time and maybe a little less milk. Yummy!

Cheesiest Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2003
This soup is very comforting and yummy on a cold evening, and leftovers freeze very well. It's a very easy way to have an extra-tasty homemade meal (We had our first batch for dinner with grilled cheese, and had the leftovers today with salad and garlic bread). My only problem was not being able to get the cheese to completely melt - I used the finely grated cheddar, and even gave it a whizz with an immersion blender, but still had tiny cheese granules in the end result. No one seemed to mind, though - everyone gave this a thumbs up!!

Anadama Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2003
MMmmmm... very hearty, nice & dense, and just sweet enough - especially with a tiny bit of butter. This is great with a soup or stew (we had boiled cabbage with potatoes and sausage) - a perfect combo! It's also nice & quick, as homemade bread goes. We really enjoy it hot from the oven, but I seriously doubt we'll have any left over to try it toasted... We'll be making this often in our house. Thanks for the recipe! (By the way, how the heck is this pronounced?)

Batter White Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2003
This is a kind of weird recipe. It's not really a batter, and the mixing doesn't really work because it's dough, and the spoon just kind of knocks the lump around. It doesn't really taste like anything in particular, and the texture is odd. It is much easier than kneaded dough, but for me it was too much effort for an iffy result.

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2003
This recipe was good, but I know I will make several changes next time: I too will use taco seasoning in the ground beef(no water), and I won't mix the beans in with the meat mixture - makes it too gloppy & all one texture. I like the idea of spreading the beans on the tortillas, and will definitely use zesty beans. The new layering order will be: meat, cheese, beany tortillas (bean side down), meat, cheese, beany tortillas etc. I'm also going to split this into two 9" disposable pie pans - bake one & freeze the other for future use (this is a VERY big recipe). It was pretty good the original way, and I know we'll really like it this way. Can't wait!

Thanksgiving Yams

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2003
These are really really tasty, and so darn fast! I was pretty skeptical, but the gingersnaps add just the perfect flavor. I had baked sweet potatoes on hand (1 hr 40 min @ 350 degrees), so I substituted an equal measure for the canned; I too put the warm sweet potato mixture in a serving container and then browned the (small sized) marshmallows with a quick zap under the broiler. I noticed the first time I made these that they hold their shape upon serving, which gave me the idea to use this as a super-quick easy cheater version of sweet potato pie - just put the mixture into a graham cracker crust, top with marshmallows brown. Really yummy! If you won't be serving the whole pie the same day, I suggest washing it with egg white baking (to seal out the moisture from the filling). Definitely a must-try.

Cheese Herb Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2003
This bread tastes really great, but I wouldn't recommend baking it in a breadmaker. Just like a previous reviewer, mine fluffed so vigorously it stuck to the inside lid, and half of this yummy loaf was scraped off into the sink! Take the extra time and do this one by hand, and add a little rosemary and Italian seasoning. Very tasty!

Barbeque Pork Two Ways

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2003
This recipe made my house smell just like a BBQ restaurant! I used boneless country style ribs and sliced diagonally, then packed the sugar VERY lightly and used 1 cup BBQ sauce and 1 cup ketchup. (I used the crockpot method). We ate our sandwiches on lightly toasted bolillo rolls with lots of dill pickle slices. These taste like the real deal, and would be a very low maintenance, low stress way to feed a crowd. We'll be using this again very soon!

Easy Roasted Pork

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2003
An instant hit! Next time I will double the sauce ingredients because it is so yummy - the sweetness of the sauce went really well with my tangy mashed potatoes (I use hardly any butter and lots of lite sour cream). I did change the recipe a little bit: instead of flouring the bag, I put the flour on a plate and put a little of the measured ginger in the flour before putting the rest in the applesauce. I dredged the roast in the seasoned flour and browned the roast on the stove. I stirred the remaining ginger/flour into the applesauce (you could end up with a dry floury lump if you don't stir) and proceeded normally from there. One of our new favorites. Thanks for the great recipe!

Crispy Herb Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2003
This is a great starting-point recipe! I added Italian seasoning, a tiny dash of poultry seasoning and a healthy pinch of dried rosemary - crush it in your palm before adding to the mix, which will release the flavor as well as saving someone from getting a giant pine needle stuck in their teeth! I sprinkled the leftover potato mixture over the top of the chicken pieces in the pan, which made for extra crispiness and flavor. I can't wait to try this with flavored potatoes as another reviewer mentioned. Super fast prep, and a tasty dinner.

Irish Cream Truffle Fudge

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2003
YUM! This is really very easy, and the results are super impressive! Instead of all semi-sweet, I used half-and-half milk chocolate and semi-sweet. It was still very rich, but that just made you happy with a smaller piece! (But that doesn't mean you can resist going back for another piece in a few minutes...). **One note: This was very boozy (but good!) the first day, but I think the flavor mellowed a little as it sat; try to make it a day ahead (if you can resist).

Baked Scallops

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2002
I used baby bay scallops, and our family likes the taste, and the crunchy topping is great. However, we agree that as a main course, it was just a little too much. If we make this again, it will be as an appetizer or a side dish.

Chicken Tortilla Soup II

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2002
YUM, so great!!! One note: about HALF the oil is plenty. For ease of preparation, I got a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken from the deli counter instead of the chicken breasts - way faster and easier, and the meat is really flavorful. Just take it off the bones, give it a rough chop and you're done. My no-nonsense, meat&potatoes husband requested a big batch of soup to take camping! Nice and sniffle-inducing spicy; adjust the cayenne or serve with a big spoonful of sour cream for the faint of heart. I've already sent the recipe to four people; my family loves it, and so do my husband's camping buddies. This will go into heavy rotation for us! Garnish with any combo of: crunchy tortilla strips (save a few tortillas to make some fresh-sprinkle lightly with onion powder); some remaining cilantro; sour cream, shredded cheese; avocado; and whatever you do, don't skip a squeeze of fresh lime!

Summer Corn Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2002
A very summery flavor! We use less onion, and use a sweet variety - and the longer it refrigerates, the better it tastes. I use this trick for cutting the corn: set a bundt or angel food pan on the counter (open side up, as if to pour batter in), then rest one end of the cob in the middle hole. No slipping around as you cut, and the kernels fall right into the pan!!... and you feel ever so clever.

Watergate Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2002
This is one of those homey recipes that FEELS like a family tradition, even if you've just tried it for the first time! I prefer with finely chopped pecans, as walnuts can have a slightly bitter edge to them. Super fluffy goodness in a spoon!!

Urban Legend Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2002
The funny thing is, I don't really like chocolate chip cookies all that much - I just wanted something for my kids to send to my husband (who was working out of town), but DANG these are good! They stay dense and moist, not fluffy and cake-y like other recipes I've tried, and it's all chunk with a just a little cookie holding it all together!! The last time I made them, I used 1/2 cup each of walnuts, pecans and macadamia nuts, and substituted almost 1/2 of the semi-sweet chips with a Hershey Bake Shoppe product called Almond Toffee Bits - basically the inside of a Heath bar, but in perfectly uniform little chunks and with no mess and frustration of chunking up the candy yourself. Really great! Oh, and if you really want to go overboard, make an ice cream sandwich with a couple of these bad boys!

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2002
HO-LEEE MO-LEEE! Man, this stuff is GOOD! Don't let the seemingly common ingredients fool you - this is incredible on any salad (let's put it this way - I've had salad twice a day since I made this, including a breakfast salad!!). It's exactly the way I think dressing should be - so tangy, packed with flavor and EASY. I love that I can store it out in my countertop with my olive oil and vinegars (I put it in an empty balsamic vinegar bottle - very cute!). **For an extra-tasty Greek salad, put the desired amount of dressing in a small bowl, and add at least 1/2 the amount of feta you plan to use. Stir gently, then let it sit 15 minutes or more before adding to the traditional salad ingredients. Very yummy! **ADDED LATER** Made as directed, this dressing will separate very quickly and very thoroughly! Here's how to lessen that: You will have to scale back quite a bit - play with the recipe scaler until the oil and the vinegar together equal an amount that will fit in your blender and still leave mixing room. Then, put everything BUT the oil and the herbs in the blender and start 'er up - medium high should do it. Very slowly drizzle in the olive oil until it is all incorporated. Woohoo! You just emulsified! Stop the blender, add in the herbs, pulse once or twice. Just mix in the herbs, don't chop them - it's prettier. Problem solved!

Christmas Breakfast Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2002
So tasty, so easy, so great!! I've made this three times (for a houseful of company each time), and it's always a hit. (It's also really nice to be able to visit in the morning instead of standing at the stove.) These are generous servings, and thank goodness - everyone goes for seconds! I've tried the half regular/half sage sausage combo as suggested, but my favorite is to just use Jimmy Dean Maple flavor sausage - HEAVENLY. This is my go-to recipe to impress for breakfast or brunch!

Lemon Ice I

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2002
I SOOO love lemons, and this is perfect for a hot Texas summer! Just beware, mine took a little longer than the 2 hours noted to freeze (using the pan-in-the-freezer method), and you should plan to serve it all the day you make it - it became VERY firm by the next day. I must say though - my favorite part of this recipe was the reviewer tip to peel the lemon with a vegetable peeler and then whirl the shavings with the sugar in a food processor. Genius!! My knuckles thank you. (Now I can make Lemon Pudding Cake twice a week instead of once... :) ) NOTE: The name is a little misleading; it's more like lemon ice cream rather than an ice or sorbet.

David's Mesquite Smoked Texas Brisket

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2002
This is definitely a recipe for garlic lovers! I love garlic, and I thought it was just on the brink of too much - but not quite! Like all good brisket, it takes awhile, but you sure feel official when you taste it. Even good the next day chopped with bbq sauce on a hamburger bun!
