Springtime Spaghetti

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2012
I make this same dish frequently except I add more vegetables, including snow peas (sliced lengthwise into thin strips), regular frozen peas, frozen corn, shredded carrot, zuchinni and summer squash (quartered lengthwise and sliced) - I like the veggies to showcase the pasta, not vice versa - it makes it more filling in a healthier way. I use a full cup of heavy cream, the butter and chives (dried are fine) instead of dill and I add a little minced garlic. Oh, and I just add the vegetables to the pasta for the last 5 minutes or so of cooking instead of sauteeing separately. I make the sauce in a separate small pan then toss all together. Delicious! Kind of like a primavera.

Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
I used this to make yogurt parfaits. I put the mixture into my blender instead of mashing it by hand.

Awesome Turkey Sandwich

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
I made this sandwich using swiss instead of colby-jack. I also skipped the salad greens, using only the sprouts instead. This is also good with a Thousand Island type dressing or sandwhich spread or as is (with the mayo/mustard combo and a thin layer of jellied cranberry sauce added! Mmmm...delish!

Raspberry Star Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
I made these by cutting the dough into circles using a clean cap from a can of spray starch - frugal and ingenious, huh? LOL Then I cut a small star shape using a very small star-shaped metal cookie cutter into the middles of the top circles. This made assembling the cookies easier while still making them pretty. I also skipped the icing and added 1 tsp of almond extract to the dough. I dusted the finished cookies with powdered sugar as did another reader, making them look rather like old-fashioned Lindzer (sp?) cookies.

Robey's Blue Crab Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2009
Try adding the following ingredients to this recipe and you will have a 'keeper': increase mayo to 3/4 cup (use light mayo, of course), 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice, 1 1/2 tsps dijon mustard (instead of powder), 1/2 tsp black pepper, 1/8 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp red pepper (cayenne). Mix with yolks and crab and stuff eggs. Top eggs with a sprinkling of Old Bay or smoked paprika and snipped fresh chives, if desired.
