German Potato Salad

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
Made this for a group of friends on a boating weekend. First night I liked it, but most others didn't... somehow the sweetness put them off. Next day I added a bit more vinegar and more salt... it was received better. Next morning I fried the leftovers in a little bacon grease until well browned and served it with eggs to RAVE reviews... Maybe I should have done that first..

Country Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: May 23, 2010
My grandson (12yr) made this last night... he added a little grated nutmeg, used 1/2 white 1/2 brown sugar and half the amount of butter. It was terriffic served with a little vanilla ice cream... He was pretty impressed with himself and I have to say, it looked easy to make and impressive to eat...

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: May 5, 2010
Followed the recipe (I did use ketchup instead of tomato sauce), marinated for 45min, grilled them perfectly and the "Giant Prawns" looked great. My husband and I both thought they were OK, but not our favorite. I think that hint of vinegar just did not go with our idea of a perfect flavor. Probably won't make this again with so many other great recipes out there.

Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: May 3, 2010
looking for something for a quick breakfast, thought I'd try these. Used frozen hash browns (worked just fine) chopped shallots and a little soy milk to thin out the batter a bit. They came out wonderful, tasty, crisp and I'll make them again without any hesitation. I only gave 4 stars because they weren't like my dad's, which used less flour and were much more crispy....but then again, I've never been able to duplicate his potato pancakes and probably never will.

Ahi Poke Basic

Reviewed: May 1, 2010
Very very good. Actually better than what I've had at a local restaurant which is known for their Ahi Poke. I did add a touch of fresh ginger and left out the nuts. I made a small amount (1/2 lb of Ahi) just for me to try. I'll make this again for a crowd.

Mini Cheese Biscuits

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
Oh, my goodness, these were awesome... I did make a couple of slight changes..... added a bit of cooked finely chopped bacon and some minced chives... left out the garlic in the batter. The biscuits were incredible... the garlic butter topping was perfect... don't use too much though, or it can be overpowering. Each bite was a burst of all the flavors... cheese, bacon, chives and a little garlic.

Garlic Cheese Biscuits

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2010
Fantastic and easy. My 8yr grandson made these as a homeschool project. He used a mini muffin pan and they came out as perfect little biscuits that he shared with his awed family. I'll make the mini's myself and serve as hors d'ourves at my next party.

Baked Beans II

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
Very very good. I used Pork & beans 30oz can and drained about 1/3 of liquid off. I cut my bacon in pieces and folded them into the beans after they were done. I'll make this again....many times....

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
I followed the recipe to the letter and my cookies certainly don't look like the picture. They are flat (too much butter & shortening) taste is good, crunchy& soft at the same time (good), texture is oily and crumble very easily. Not my favorite cookie.......

Grape Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2010
Great taste...could be used in a salad as well as on sandwich thins. I substuited english muffins. I didn't have infused oil, so added a bit of minced garlic and it worked out just fine. Also, I might suggest letting it sit overnight or at least a few hours in the fridge to meld the flavors. Better the second day ...third day I used it on salad...

Date Nut Loaf Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2010
Very nice and not too sweet. I used Pecans and only baked it for 45 min....came out perfect. I opted not to make the sauce. Date Nut Loaf was wonderful plain!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2010
Fantastic soup. My husband had it 3 nights in a row (his choice) I used my hand blender after removing most of ham and some if the potatoes... lightly blended, then put back ham and potatoes... gave soup a great texture....chunky, yet smooth... wonderful flavor. I'll make this again, but maybe not so much of it.

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2010
I used rice noodles rather than udon and they worked just great. I also took the advice of someone else and substituted sesame oil for chili oil. I did add a little hot sauce as well. This dish was simple, quick and delicious. We had cucumbers in sweet chili sauce on the side and it was perfect...

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
Great tasting muffins....but eat them the first day (shouldn't be a problem)!!! I found that the topping will soften up the next day and if you want that crunch...throw them back in the oven for a quick warm up...

Golden Rum Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2009
Amazing, unbelievably great tasting cake! I used pecans, fat free milk instead of water in the glaze, Bicardi rum in the batter and Whalers Vanilla Rum in the glaze...this cake won't last over two days.. Do I have to share it with my family?

Caribbean Grilled Crab Cakes

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2009
This was a simple recipe, although I had to improvise a bit! I added a dash of smokey paprika, used panko bread crumbs, light mayo and served with Thai sweet chile sauce as well as store bought mango salsa... Due to conditions beyond my control, I had to bake my crab cakes in a 375 oven for 20-25 min. They browned up nicely and came out great. My husband raved about them (and he wasn't just being nice)... I'll make these again next week for a party without any fear of failure.

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
Looked great,tasted good, but had less flavor than I'd anticipated based on reviews. Used fresh wild salmon which I'd definately recommend over farm raised.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
Great cheesecake! Didn't have a spring form pan so used two purchased crusts...filled them both from this receipe. Cracked, but probably because I didn't have correct pan... never the less...enjoyed by more people than I'd planned on feeding......
