Anise Biscotti

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
my first try making biscotti. I was determined to have almond ones, so I substituted Amaretto for the Brandy, almond extract for the anise extract and poppy seeds for anise seeds. It was fantastic and didn't last the weekend (and then I bought anise for next time)

Pizza Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
tasty and easy. I skipped the bell peppers, since I never was a fan, and put in crushed red pepper instead. I also added a few shakes of oregano and basil, used only a quarter of a sweet onion and used hot Italian sausage instead of ground meat. Then I plated it up for a photo and proceeded to dump the whole plate into my toaster...

Fudgy Chocolate Drops

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
Despite what other reviewers said, these weren't chocolatey enough for me. Still after my first tray full, they were a great way to use up leftover chips. I mixed some dough with mint chips, some with butterscotch and some with chocolate chips and walnuts and cooked up the rest of the batch. Not bad.

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
I picked out this recipe to get more magnesium in my diet, nothing to do with wanting a vegetarian meal, so I cooked up a pound of hot Italian sausage with the onions and garlic before stirring in the rest. I left out the broth entirely (and definitely didn't need it), and used unmarinated artichokes, then alternated layers with mozzarella and ricotta cheeses (it took 12 noodles). Since everything was cooked already, I only put the lasagna in the oven for 30 minutes. It was delicious with fresh bread broiled with butter, parmesan-romano and garlic powder.

Zucchini Chocolate Orange Cake

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
Delicious. I made mine with Triple Sec and orange extract instead of OJ, to get more flavor (and put the Triple Sec in the glaze as well) and added chocolate chips, as some suggested.

Roasted Pecan Couscous with Sun Dried Tomatoes and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2010
This is pretty good, though there's a tang in the pesto that is a little off to my taste. I was wary about the pecans but they were the best part! Glad I didn't leave them out. I did leave out the mushrooms, as I'm not a fan, and I didn't use an entire onion either (maybe 1/3). I'll be sure to make it again.

Five Minute Lemon-Poppy Seed Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2010
If you're at high altitude like me, better split it between two mugs... mine spilled over during the cook time. I didn't have lemon extract, so I used juice and grated peel... probably would have been more flavorful with the extract... not bad overall, especially if you sprinkle it with more sugar.

New Orleans Corn Bisque with Smoked Sausage

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
If you love it hot, make that jalepeno cheddar smoked sausage (not a Hillshire Farms flavor at my store), cut up a medium green chili and add it to the onions, and shake in some red pepper flakes. It's pretty hot, but yum!

Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
Like many other reviewers, I used applesauce instead of oil and cut the sugar in half (1/2 c brown, 1/2 c white). I also used fresh pumpkin, dumped in about 1/2 C pecans and just like when I make pumpkin pie, I don't settle for the minimum of spices. My muffins have nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, cardamom and coriander (between 1/8 tsp and a shake, generally). I used a gala and a granny smith apple, too. Delicious, but a lot of changes to make it so.

Braided Peach Strudel

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2011
Tastes good but... Although I used mixed berries instead of peaches, I used the same amount the recipe suggested and it's way too high of a fruit to pastry ratio. I'll be cooking the other half of the box to go with what's left. To anyone else who tries this recipe, I'd say 12 oz is more than enough. The pastry was rather soggy on the bottom, but that's probably my fault for using fruit that's too juicy.

Best Spinach Dip Ever

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2011
I did make some changes though... I didn't have water chestnuts so used pecans, and I used a full 16 oz package of spinach. Most people commented that they really liked the high spinach to cream ratio, compared to other dips.
