Cocktail Meatballs I

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2006
These were incredibly easy to make. A few changes I made: apparently, the instructions don't want you to drain off the shortening after frying the meatballs; I did and they were fine. I whisked together the jelly and the chili sauce in a crock pot and then put the meatballs on top of that and spooned the sauce over them. I let them go on high about an hour and then turned the setting to "keep warm." They were very good and stayed moist and tender in the crockpot. One change I would make, I think the meatballs have too much onion. Ordinarily I love onion, but these didn't seem right with that much of it. Next time I'll cut it in half or use just a bit of dehydrated onion. Even better, I'll just buy a bag of frozen meatballs. LOL The recipe is a keeper though. Thanks!

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2004
I followed another reviewer's advice and allowed these to rest a few minutes prior to baking, and then brushed with egg wash before popping in the oven. After baking for the allocated 8 minutes, I brushed them with melted Cinnamon/Sugar Country Crock and then sprinkled with Domino Cinnamon/Sugar mix. I followed the recipe exactly, and these came out fine. The dough was easy to work with, and I had no trouble at all in rolling out ropes approx. 3 feet long. Once baked, they puff up quite a bit and look very appealing. The taste is somewhat bland, but it's not because your flour might be stale, I think the recipe needs more salt. Other than that, I would make these again. They were very easy and fun to make. Thank you!

Grilled Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2003
Easy to make, however, messy to eat. Might be best to eat with a fork. Not a bad recipe, but I don't think I would make again. Thank you though.

Macadamia-Crusted Sea Bass with Mango Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2003
I served this with rice pilaf and a mixed veggie blend. Very good! I took the leftover mango sauce and put it on top of vanilla ice cream with a few slices of fresh pineapple. DELISH! Thank you!

Basic Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2003
Very easy to make, always have the ingredients in the pantry, extremely flakey. My only problem was, once I have this rolled out, I can't get it off the counter...even when I liberally flour work surfaces. Can anyone give me any tips? I didn't have wax paper on hand, so I tried aluminum foil, and it stuck to that, too. I managed to get a bottom crust by pushing pieces of dough into the pan, but my top crust was basically rolled out pieces that I put on the top. It didn't look bad, but it didn't look like a picture perfect pie. Oh well, the taste was picture perfect, and so I'm still rating this a 5 star recipe. Any tips are appreciated. Thank you for the recipe!

Arangini (Italian Rice Balls)

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2003
I've been looking for this recipe everywhere! Thanks so much! These are just like my Nonna's, except she put peas in the middle of hers and occasionally a bit of ground beef or lamb instead of the prosciutto. I made my rice balls pretty large, and molded them into a bell shape like my Nonna's. Delicious! Thanks again!

Seeing as how my mother is from Calabria, I thought I would give this recipe a whirl, and am I glad that I did! Thanks Salvatore, this was delicious, very easy to follow. I had no trouble with rubbery fish.

Barbecued Shrimp

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2003
As the recipe is, it's delicious, but not enough heat for my tastes, so I added a good hard shake of ground cayenne pepper...and it made my nose run. LOL. I also cut down this recipe to make 4 servings, 1 for him, 3 for me. :) I tried another reviewer's suggestion and served over rice and added a green salad.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2003
You talk about sweet! These made my teeth ache. I followed the recipe as posted, but added 1 tsp. of vanilla extract. Next time I'll try the brown sugar/white sugar combo. Nice easy recipe, probably better for little kids, but it still hit the spot. One and a half cookies and I'm set for the rest of the night as far as my sweet tooth is concerned. Thanks! :)

Garlic Spread

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2003
Very good, however, too much onion. I think next time I will use 1 TBSP of onion powder instead. Or maybe puree the onion. But anyway, really good, very easy, would make it again. Thanks!

A Good Easy Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2003
I don't know what everyone is fussing about. Just as the name of the recipe implies, it's a good, EASY chicken dish. A dish from a 5 star hotel it's not; however, if you need something tasty and in a jiff, this definitely hits the spot. Great recipe, use it many times when I'm on a tight schedule. Thanks!

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2003
FANTASTIC! I like to slice ripe tomatoes, dip them in the dressing, put them on a slice of baguette, top with a bit of freshly grated parm or grated mozzarella, and top it in the broiler for a minute or so. DELISH! YUMMY! I no longer buy the cruet-type dressing mix, this is so much better and cheaper! Thanks for a great recipe!

Basic Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2002
To NLW: "I have made it twice and both times I have cracks going through it. What am I doing wrong. I never see this in a store bought cheesecake." You're overbeating your mixture.
