Marzetti® Hawaiian Slaw

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2009
I used a bag of slaw (cabbage and carrots) added mixed dried tropical fruit and craisins instead of the raisins and had to use a different brand of dressing, and it was great. I'll be making it again shortly!

Cranberry Sauce Extraordinaire

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2011
This was so good. The only thing I'll change next time I make it (and there will be a next time; I'll never look for another cranberry sauce recipe again!) will be to soak the dried fruit in brandy before adding it. That's the only thing I missed from my previous cranberry sauce.

Rhubarb Spice Cake with Lemon Sauce

Reviewed: May 26, 2013
Wonderful recipe exactly as written. . Not a sweet cake and that was appreciated by some people. The lemon sauce makes it sweeter. The sauce is delicious, and makes enough to use for other things. I added more rhubarb than the recipe called for to use up the last few stalks I had, and that didn't cause any problems. Really delicious cake. I'm adding this to my favourite rhubarb recipes.

Dash's Donair

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
this is just like the donairs from back home! I'm so happy to have found this recipe I could cry. The only thing to make it better would be to go back home :)

Ono Butter Mochi

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
easy to make, easy to eat. It's fun, it's squisy, it's custardy, it's delicious! Not everyone likes the jelly texture of mochi, of course, but if you do, this is wonderful. I did use a can of coconut milk and made up the rest with skim milk, in place of the whole milk.

True Blue Custard Crunch Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2012
This was so quick and easy to make, as well as delicious. I didn't slice it until it was chilled over night, and it sliced very well, but I imagine it wouldn't do that when still warm. I used half blueberries, and half cherries because we like that fruit combination. Will make this again.

Sweet Blackberry and Brandy Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2012
Simple and delicious. It's been served over blintzes, ice cream, french toast, and plain yogurt here so far. Very good.

Banana Pudding II

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2012
Delicious. I made this in an 8X8" pan, but found there wasn't enough pudding to completely cover 2 layers of vanilla wafers. I recommend using a smaller dish than that, or using only one layer of wafers, but that's just my personal preference.

Oven Baked Garlic and Parmesan Fries

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2012
Delicious. Just keep an eye on the baking time. Found mine starting to get a bit overdone with about 7 minutes left on the timer.

Eclairs II

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2012
Very good. Delicious, easy, and not as time consuming as you might think. Only thing I'll change next time is to use only 2 cups of milk (that's what the box says) rather than the 2.5 that the recipe calls for just so it will be a big thicker.

Excellent Apple Gingerbread

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2012
a delicately flavoured, moist cake. Good without the walnuts. I do suggest you make your own pie filling rather than using canned.

Classic Potato Latkes

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2012
Fast. Easy. Good. If you use a nonstick pan, you don't need all that oil.

Graham Cracker Crust II

Reviewed: May 16, 2012
I loved this crust. Since it's not sweet, it worked wonderfully for key lime pie. If you're going to use it for a baked pie, don't prebake this crust. I think all the confusion this recipe has created comes from not all graham crackers being the same size between brands. I used 16 Christie Honey Maid graham wafers which measure 2.25" each. with the 1/4 butter I had a crust that was thoroughly moist and held together well. There wasn't enough of it to go very high up the sides of the pan though, so if you want full sides to your crust, you'll probably have to make more.

Lime Gelatin Salad

Reviewed: May 24, 2012
It's fruity, fluffy and fun. It's not the best gelatin salad I've had, but it's fast, easy and inexpensive to make, making this the perfect salad to feed a crowd. It sets just fine. Note to those who can't buy whipped topping in 8oz containers, 8oz of whipped topping is equal to approx. 3 cups.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2013
I'm not a fan of apples, but even I ate this pie. Apple lovers told me this was delicious, and I'll never use anohter apple pie recipe again now! I added some spices to my apples (cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla) adn I just mixed the syrup with the apples in a bowl (preserving a few tbsp for the top crust), rather than pour over top. It's not overly sweet. I did use a bit of cornstarch to thicken the sauce a bit, and I didn't bake at the higher temperature. Also, 8 apples? Really?! I need a deeper pie dish to fit that many apples. I used 6 and that was over flowing!

Mom's Red Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2011
took about twice as long to cook as the recipe said, and I cut the potatoes as thinly as I could by hand, but very very good

Blueberry Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2014
Loved this banana bread. It could have been made into something fancier with added cinnamon/brown sugar topping, or a bit of lemon zest, but I wanted this to be a banana bread-and it was delicious. I did add 2 cups instead of 1 cup blueberries.
