Hearty Turkey Soup with Parsley Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2005
This soup was great - the best, most flavourful use of a turkey carcass after Thanksgiving! Now... the dumplings in this recipe were a disaster- which could have been something I did - they turned out like doorstops! I had to scoop them out and throw em away, but the soup made up for it..! Stick to easy bisquick dumplings with this recipe.

Coconut Ambrosia Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2005
Really good. After I noted some other suggestions here on reviews, I added a little sour cream to cut the cool whip sweeteness a bit and a touch of milk to thin out. And I only used 1 cup of coconut...2 just seemed like too much.

Colorful Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2005
I LOVE corn chowder, but have never made it.This is one great recipe! After reviewing a number of other recipes and reader comments, I made a few changes. I didn't have any peppers that day, so I substituted a slice celery rib, and I added a 14 oz can of creamed corn after softening the vegetables. Instead of 3 c water, used 2 c water, 1 chicken broth + 3/4 cup skim milk powder. And reduced the potato flakes to 1 c. It was very good. Will make this again. You probably don't need to change anything in the original recipe, but I think that the creamed corn helps and I would use whatever broth you have on hand for part of the water required.

Cream of Cauliflower Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2005
This is the most flavourful Cauliflower soup recipe I have ever made. Much better than Joy of Cooking, which I usually make. Changes? Only had 1/2 cup of white wine,and only used 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese and it didn't seem to hurt the end result at all. This soup rocks.Thank you Holly ...

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2004
I made this for a second time, and I'm glad I gave it a second chance! It was terrific the 2nd time around. First time was OK, but the mushrooms were not cooked enough and everything fell over on the chicken after assembly -higher than the eiffel tower. The 2nd time? I sauteed the mushrooms in butter with the chicken and I used store bought hormels real bacon bits instead of cooking my own strips-Sprinkled bacon over the chicken both before and after the cheese. It was awesome ! And the honey mustard sauce was Great. A hit , even with unadventurous DH.

Judy's Strawberry Pretzel Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2004
Ok, clearly I have missed something. First of all it IS NOT a salad, it is a pie. But even as a pie, the top gelatin layer didn't set very well and I had to take it out, and mix in another box of jello with 1 cup of boiling water....and replace the "top". Finally ended up mixing it all together anyway...so technically it was a salad I suppose. The cheescake portion and the pretzels part tasted excellent, but the gelatin strawberry part- yech-both before and after my "correction". Somehow the gluey jello part didn't do the rest justice.

Mandarin Orange Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2004
Loved it! Followed others suggestions and used orange cake mix, and substituted OJ for mandarin syrup. And reduced oil to 2/3 plus 1/3 OJ. At the risk of OJ Overdose, I also zested one entire orange and added it to the cake mix. For frosting, I drained the pineapple as suggested, but the pudding had nothing to set with - was powdery. I had to mix some liquid with the pudding for the frosting- the cool whip and Drained pineapple was not enough. I added back in about 1/2-3/4 c of pineapple juice. Made 3 layer cake, and used orange marmalade between layers. It was great! Brought it to work, and everyone ate it by noon.Will make it again, likely before the week is out:)

Banana Pudding III

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2004
yes, it was rich! but oh sooo good. I took a couple of suggestions from other reviewers. Added more nilla wafers, (but 50 was too many. 40 would have probably been better, (or maybe the 36 as suggested :) ) Also, having made another Banana pudding recipe, and finding that the bananas get a bit mushy when incorporated into the mix unless served immediately, I let the pudding mixture sit overnight (per another suggestion) and then added the bananas not long before serving. Much better idea. The whipped cream vs the cool whip... sure was tempting to use the CW, but per someone's suggestion that you use real whipped cream, I think they were right- it cut the sweetness.

Penne a la Vodka I

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2003
The sauce was fine, but the dish would have been improved overall if the bacon was changed to the italian dry cured version.

Made it as shown, but threw in a bit (1/4 c ttl) of diced dried candied pineapple and dried candied papaya for a bit of colour,texture. Terrific recipe! Nice change from the usual.
