Pineapple Ricotta Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2011
Great recipe and even for those who don't THINK they fancy pineapple! I didn't do the precise measuring, but just mixed the liquids then added the Ricotta then the cake mix and it came out fabulous. I did add a tsp of vanilla which added a nice little pop of flavor. No need to frost and definitely get the crushed pineapple that's in its own juice not sweetened in any way. Also, use REAL ricotta not low cal or diet. The muffins loose texture if you sub in the fake stuff.

Pistachio Twists

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2011
Well, I completely forgot to get the puff pastry at Shop Rite BUT I had Grands rolls from Pillsbury. Took them out of the can, rolled them out and proceeded as the recipe suggests. Cut into strips but did not twist. They were AWESOME! ! ! Also, if you buy the pre-shelled pistachios, you don't need any more salt. Bravo!

Lobster Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
Five stars with the following changes. Add a good sprinkle of Old Bay seasoning. When you add in the milk and chicken broth, use a soup hand blender to blend. Don't just cook 10 min. The onions will not be soft. I used two 8-oz packages Trans Ocean Lobster Classic Chunk Style Lobster. This is a fantastic imitation lobster (do NOT use Louis Kemp brand...ick). Let simmer on low one hour stirring occasionally. Cool then run through a blender. Reheat and add the cream. WONDERBAR!

Most Amazing Challah

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
OUTSTANDING! We celebrated the Jewish New Year at a popular Jewish Deli called Herald's last Thursday evening with my husband's extended Jewish family. I am Episcopalian, so have been learning about the Jewish Holidays and foods over the past 10 years that I've been with my husband. My five year old tried Challah for the first time and liked it. This being the case, and also wanting to thank my in-laws for babysitting, I tried to attempt making Challah from scratch for my daughter to eat and to give a loaf to my in-laws. I have never worked with yeast before. I just followed the directions and it came out outrageously fantastic! The whole house smelled great, my in-laws and sister-in-law loved it and best of all, my five year old declared, "This is much better than it was at Herald's!"

Maple Kale Crisps

Reviewed: May 23, 2012
WOW! I found it to be fabulous and very unique! The only thing I changed was to use Sugar Free, no calorie maple syrup. I will be serving it at a BBQ on Monday and can't wait for people's reactions when they learn it is kale.

Yellow Clooney Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
I thought I was making this recipe and had mistakenly taken another off of the site. BAD mistake. It came out like a dense rock... like the one Patrick lives under in Spongebob. Anyway, this one rocked and thanks for educating me about the essentialness of using cake flour vs all purpose!

Jalapeno Popper Pizza

Reviewed: May 1, 2011
The filling was great but the topping destroyed it for us. Recommend using crumbled Ritz Crackers instead of the breadcrumbs.

Apple and Brown Sugar Corned Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2011
Amazing. Simply amazing. I have never liked this before and loved it. My husband, who is Jewish, is a corned beef connoisseur and said it was the best he's ever had. Kept the juice and spices the same but did just one three pound corned beef and only used 7 potatoes, one onion and a half a head of cabbage. Thank you for this! ! ! !

Fourth of July Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
I've tried making potato salad before, but nothing great. This was absolutely fantastic. I used a tablespoon of Nathan's mustard instead of dry as I didn't have dry on hand. The ultimate compliment was from my Jewish Mother in Law who said it was the best she'd ever tasted and reminded her of what she'd had growing up.

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
Absolutely awesome! The first time made it with a fresh squash from my friend's garden. The second time, used six cups of frozen butternut squash cubes (in the freezer section) and it tasted the same and took a quarter of the time! An absolute winner whether you choose the long road or the short road.

Rhubarb Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2011
My dear friend, Shawna, has a huge garden and gave me the most lovely rhubarb. It was so fresh and it's flavor quite strong so I used the 2 cups of rhubarb then doubled everything else. Took another's suggestion and added fresh strawberries too. Fabulous! The next night I added some avocado to make it more of a guacamole! Great!

White and Gold Pizza

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2010
If you want to get SIX stars, add a little vanilla extract to the softened cream cheese and one packet of Splenda. Mix together before spreading on the pizza. No one will be able to pin point the "secret ingredients" and it's a total winner!

Banana Empanadas

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
Good dough recipe, but the finished product was rather bland. I'd recommend either adding a little banana liquor to the filling or some vanilla icing to the top

Strawberry Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2010
Outstanding! I made it with frozen strawberries. Thawed them then patted them dry and tossed them with a big of flour before adding to the mix. Outstanding bread! Don't omit the pecans and definitely use pecans vs another nut. Almonds just aren't the same. Thank you for this, Ellen!!!!!

Cheater Pancake Syrup

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
Wanna cut down on the sugar? Buy Splenda and follow the directions as to how much to sub in for the white sugar. It's splendidly Spenda and you just saved ooodles and ooodles of calories! Now not only will people think it's the real deal, but they'll save calories!

Spinach Kugel

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2010
Wow and double wow. I am Episcopalian married to a Jewish man. Each Passover, I try my best to make something great to impress his family. Last year I made a kugel many liked then this year, made this delight of a recipe! Like it said, even people who aren't into spinach loved it! My niece, Mindy, was point in case. Everyone complimented me! It was such a hit that I'm going to even serve it as a side on .... Easter Sunday!

Brownie Mix-Black Bean Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2014
Ironically, I tried this recipe on April Fool's Day! I coach a youth running program and I thought how funny to make brownies that were actually somewhat healthy for them. Most of the kids would be mortified to think they ate and liked black beans. Tried it out this am and it is AMAZING! Decadent tasting and chock full of fiber-filled, healthy beans! The kids will never know but I think I'll make the parents' April Fools Day by letting them in on my little culinary secret. These will become my go to brownie! Thank you! (make sure you mix the beans and water very thoroughly before adding the brownie mix - I used a blender for this then transferred into a mixer). What a great, secret recipe!
