Orange Cream Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2013
Don't do what I did. I used a combination of canned Fruit (pineapple, mandarin oranges, cherries) and Frozen fruit which I thawed for two days (Strawberries, blueberries.) Even after draining over and over, when I put the ingredients together, it made the worst looking mess. However, it tasted very good, so I covered it up with whipped cream. Unfortunately after sitting in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, the whipped cream turned into soup on top of the salad, so just before serving I added some more whipped cream. By the time everyone was served (12 people), the whipped cream had melted again. My friend and I got a good laugh over it, but if I ever make it again, I will use only fresh fruit (except the pineapple and oranges). PS Despite the problems I had with the salad, people commented that it tasted very good.

World's Best Pasta Sauce!

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2010
Very good pasta sauce. I made the following changes/additions. I used Marzano whole canned tomatoes instead of crushed. I crushed them myself with a potato masher. I substituted brown sugar for white. I used 4 cloves of garlic instead of 2. I added 1 cup red wine instead of water. I added 1 cup sun-dried tomato pesto (Progresso) and used fresh basil and oregano instead of dried basil, fennel seed and italian seasoning. My husband said this was the best pasta sauce he has ever had, and we eat italian food quite often.
