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.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2007
I baked this in two 9X5 pans (since I didn't have the smaller size) and it took FOREVER, but it was very good. The first loaf was good, but the second loaf, which had been wrapped in plastic and refrigerated for a few days, was excellent! Very very moist. Not a huge fan of cinnamon in banana bread, but the texture was great.

Tiny Chicken Turnovers

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2007
Loved these! I used rotisserie chicken, which saved time) and made the filling the night before. Adding paprika to the dough was a delicious touch. Five tablespoons of water would've been too much. Stop at four tablespoons and see if the dough will hold together. Rolling the dough thin and using the 2-1/2" cutter yielded about 75 turnovers! These were delicious at brunch.

Lemon Wow Cake

Reviewed: May 7, 2007
Extremely moist cake with a great texture. More lemon-y than I thought it would be. I couldn't taste the tarragon, so am not really sure what it added, but I wouldn't omit it. It took about 50 minutes to bake in a bundt pan. Moist enough to be served alone, but I added a dollop of peach, mango, orange topping.

Roasted Mushroom Salad

Reviewed: May 4, 2007
Boy, is this good! I used an orange pepper, because that's what I had on hand. I also used dried basil--I had fresh mint in the fridge, but chickened out when it came to dumping it in. Different, but oh so good!

Citrus Garlic Shrimp

Reviewed: May 3, 2007
Yum. Easier and quicker than I expected. And so delicious. I did add some cornstarch (1 T. in 1/4 cold water) to the sauce at the end of cooking time, just to thicken it a bit. Next time I think I'll throw in some veggies--broccoli or asparagus go nicely with citrus. More shrimp next time, too, as the family agreed that one pound just wasn't enough. Good enough for company, quick and easy enough for anyday.

Satiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2007
I've used this recipe so much that I practically have it memorized. Great glaze for "dripping down" the sides of a bundt cake.

Cream of Fresh Asparagus Soup II

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2007
Yummy! Be careful with that liquid level when cooking the asparagus and onions---that 1/2-cup disappears quickly. I served six cups, instead of four bowls. It's rich, so that was enough. The kids even liked it.

Stuffed Shells I

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2007
Very good. I only used a 12 oz. package of shells (didn't find the 16 oz. package). It had about 35 shells in it, which was still plenty to serve eight. The cheese filling was just enough. Serves up prettier than manicotti.

Chicken Tortilla Soup V

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2007
Very good. A bit more time consuming since some similar soups are just made by "opening cans". Next time I may try canned chicken, or leftover rotisserie chicken. Don't leave out the citrus; it adds a lot! I used half lemon, half lime.

Honey Fudge Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2007
I would call this a chocolate sauce rather than a fudge sauce, meaning that it's thin rather than thick. Still quite good, though. Terrific on poundcake, and with the remainder stored in a squeeze bottle in the fridge, I'm sure it will be good on whatever else we serve it with.

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2007
Divine. Followed the recipe to a "T". It says six servings, but those are one-cup, appetizer-sized servings. If you want bigger bowl-fuls, you'll need to double the recipe.

Fancy Crescents

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2007
While these were very good, they reminded me of the "cookies" my mother used to make with any leftover pie crust scraps. Granted, these were much prettier than pastry scraps sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, but the taste is similar enough that I don't know that I'll ever make them again.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2007
As a cake decorator, I've tried a lot of different "doctored cake mix" recipes. This is one of the best I've tried. I love how it only takes 1 cup of sour cream (others take 2 cups). Don't be afraid to add the full amount of oil---it's cake! I prefer using mini chocolate chips, and they add a lot to the recipe. The little ones don't "sink" to the bottom of the cake pan AND are small enough to melt completely, leaving a small bit of pure chocolate in each bite. I will be using this recipe from now on.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2006
I just couldn't help myself---I added a couple handfulls of cheese to this soup. Yummy! Good way to use leftover ham.

Roasted Red Pepper and Crab Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2006
Very good soup. This method of roasting the red peppers is so much easier/quicker than doing them whole. I will use this method from now on. I used 3 cans of evaporated milk in lieu of the half-n-half. It's a very rich soup, and with the cost of crab, a very expensive soup, so I won't be making it often, but it's a great recipe to file under "dinner party".

Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2006
I felt like I was "cheating" and eating dessert first. Delicious and sweet. Even if you think you don't like sweet potatoes, give this recipe a try, as it tastes nothing like a veggie, but rather, like a sweet treat.

Cottage Cheese Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2006
This tasted very good. Next time I think I'll make this as a "layered dish" instead of rolling up each tortilla---Not quite as pretty in the pan, but it looks the same on the plate. I also used two cans of Costco canned chicken and a larger can (19 oz.) of enchilada sauce. The kids really liked it.

Peanut Buttercup Hot Chocolate

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2006
Not as good as it sounded to me. The PB taste wasn't very discernable, until you get to the bottom of the cup where it's kind of clumped up. I even melted the PB before stirring in, but it doesn't really mix in very well. I don't know if it's worth the effort.
