Cardamom Granola Bars

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
Dangerous recipe---because you can't stop eating them! The cardamom is different, but certainly not too strong. Very good.

Ricotta Gnocchi

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
I needed to add more flour than called for in order for the gnocchi to be firm enough, yet it as still so tender and delicious. I will make this again and again.

Red Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
Whoops! didn't have bacon like I thought I did, but it was still a very good salad. I only used about 2/3 cup mayo and adjusted the sugar and vinegar accordingly. My red onion was a bit strong, but that's not the recipe's fault. Very yummy.

Bananas in Caramel Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
I'm not too sure if I like warm bananas or not. Either way, use firm bananas, because they will soften in the caramel sauce. It's a good basic caramel sauce recipe to have on hand. I did add a touch of vanilla, too--it seemed to be screaming for it. Also, there's enough caramel sauce to support many more bananas than called for in the recipe.

Seasoned Cottage Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
The cottage cheese texture is fine, but the taste is a little lack-luster. It tastes good, but not great.

Crispy Potato Wedges

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
Simple and straightforward. They cooked "peel-side down" thus alleviating any need to flip them. They browned very nicely. A great base recipe--add seasonings to taste.

Bruschetta II

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2009
Very very yummy! The proportions are off--you'll have way too much pesto than needed for the amount of tomatoes here. I guess that means I chop more tomatoes and we have it again tomorrow night! I only used about half the almonds and was happy with the texture they added. Also, if substituting dried basil for fresh, use 1/3, which would be 1 teaspoon in this recipe. This is also a great way to sneak spinach onto the menu.

Lemon Posset

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
Wow! Lemon Posset, where have you been all my life? What a sweet pleasure this dessert is. It does soften rather quickly upon removing from the refrigerator, but I remedied that by freezing it for just a few hours before serving. It doesn't harden too much, but stays firm much longer. I did add the zest of one of the lemons, because it seemed to be screaming for that. By the way, one recipe makes about 32 oz, which is helpful if you're trying to divide the mixture equally between serving dishes.

Festive Cranberry Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
This has been taking the place of canned cranberries at our Thanksgiving dinner for years and years. My family loves it! I recently shared the recipe and samples at a potluck-type cooking class and received numerous compliments, along with comments from the ladies that it would be made during the holidays in their homes, too. And just today, my nine-year old daughter said that I could make cranberry salad for her next birthday instead of cake!!

Brown Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2008
I've never browned this quantity of butter before now. It's a little different than browning a small amount. It took longer than five minutes, foamed plenty then subsided, boiled, then foamed again before turning "nutty and brown". You have to stir in order to see the color through the foam. Great recipe! It didn't quite make 50 and next time I'll roll them a little smaller for a bit daintier cookie. I didn't use all the hot water for the glaze--just add it slowly until the desired consistency is reached. Try this recipe! Your pound of butter will not be used in vain!

Blackberry Cobbler II

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2008
The taste was very good, but there were a few problems. Even after baking for longer than the recipe stated, the toping still wasn't done in the middle. Also, my inner-pastry-chef balked at the idea of adding boiling water after cutting in the butter--I just couldn't do it! So the flavor was good, but I will be trying other cobbler recipes in the future.

Blueberry 'N' Spice Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2008
I followed another reviewer's advice and added 1/2 teaspoon orange extract---that truly took it to higher level. Very very yummy. My family really liked it, but all commented that "it tastes like Christmas" because of the spices. Yet on our 4th of July lemon cake, it will still be served!

Hard Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: May 15, 2008
Great flavor, but not quite as "drip-able" as I wanted. I had to help the glaze drip down the sides of the tube cake. I made the recipe as written, using Callebaut chocolate. With only two ingredients, each one should be top-notch. I would use this recipe again, but probably on cupcakes, where each one can be dipped in.

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2007
Don't let their plain and simple disguise fool you. These cookies are very very good. I doubled the vanilla and added 1/8 teaspoon salt because I thought it probably needed it. Great recipe to go to when you want something simple and very fast!

Chocolate Velvet Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2007
Just a good basic chocolate ice cream. I added chopped bittersweet chocolate. Good standard recipe to have on hand.

Hearts of Palm Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2007
This is basically hearts of palm and Italian dressing mixed together, not that that's a bad thing. On the contrary, it's an extremely versatile recipe---throw in whatever veggies seem to fit. The champagne vinegar (although at the high cost I subbed half with another type of vinegar) takes it to another level and adds that extra flavor factor. I only used half the olive oil, and that was more than enough.

Crostini with Mozzarella and Tomato

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2007
Really good. I, too, added a splash of balsamic, which the tomatoes seemed to be begging for. I put the tomatoes on first, topped it with a slice of fresh mozzarella, then popped it all back in the oven to just melt the cheese. This ensured that the tomatoes didn't fall off--they were held in place by the melted cheese. Oh--and I used sliced grape tomatoes because that's what I had on hand.
