Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: May 31, 2012
I made this marinade tonight at the last minute and only let it marinate for about 20-30 minutes but it was still delicious. A little on the sweet side, but I like it that way. Instead of placing the salmon directly on the grill, I put them on aluminum foil over the fire (sprayed with non-stick spray). The skin still gets crispy and brown without any flare-ups. I turned them over after about 5-6 minutes and moved them to indirect heat, closed the lid of the grill and let them sit another 4 minutes or so. They were cooked perfectly.

German Baby

Reviewed: May 25, 2012
I've been making this for years, my mother made it when I was a child and my kids make it for their kids. We always ate it with lots of powdered sugar and lemon juice squeezed over it. The trick to getting it big and puffy is to make sure the skillet (I use a 10" pie pan) with the butter is sizzling hot and pour the batter in right away and put it right back in the oven. The batter should start pulling away from the sides of the pan as soon as it's poured in, that's how hot it needs to be. Don't lower the temperature, cook it at 425 degrees.

Spinach Turkey Roll

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2012
I made this exactly as the recipe directed. It was tricky to roll because the meatloaf mixture was so soft (I even put the rectangle of meat in the freezer for a few minutes hoping it would help but it didn't). It smelled delicious while it was baking. The finished product wasn't very pretty and the texture was a little mushy but the flavor was very good. My husband loved it. It was good enough that I'd make it again, maybe using a smaller amount of dry bread crumbs and only 1 egg. 2 eggs for 1 pound of meat seems like a lot.

Crab Legs with Garlic Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2011
I made this tonight with Dungeness crab, the first of the season here in California. It was wonderful! Cleaned and quartered a large crab and slit the shells on the legs (cracked the large claws), used fresh parsley because I had some on hand and basted the crab with the butter as it cooked so it got well coated. Messy but delicious. Will definitely make it again real soon.

Libby's® Famous Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2011
This is the ultimate pumpkin pie recipe, I've been making it for over 40 years and my mother was making it before that. This Thanksgiving I made one of this recipe and another from a different recipe on another site that sounded a little more exotic with the addition of cardamom and lemon zest. The Libby's Famous Pumpkin Pie won hands down, no contest. My mother used to make a variation on this recipe by separating the eggs and beating the whites until stiff to fold into the pumpkin mixture just before pouring into the pie shells, baking temp and time the same. Made this way, the great classic taste is retained while giving it a light, almost fluffy, texture.

Orange, Walnut, Gorgonzola and Mixed Greens Salad with Fresh Citrus Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2011
The dressing was a little sweet and could use some salt but the flavor combination is so good I have to give it 5 stars even though I'll cut the sugar way down next time. Wonderfully refreshing on a warm summer evening.

Seafood Sandwich

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
We really liked this sandwich, it was easy to make and tasty. I added a stalk of celery chopped and an extra teaspoon of lemon juice after tasting, served on small bakery sub rolls instead of hot dog buns. I would definitely make this again. It made a lot for just 2 rolls, maybe because of the added celery. The rolls I used were about the size of hot dog buns and it filled 3 rolls generously.

Bacon Ranch Pea Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
I love this version of a pea salad. There's no need to cook the peas, just defrost them by running under warm water in a colander for a minute or so...they defrost quickly on their own. You can also use cubed cheese instead of shredded. I'm not a lover of ranch dressing but it went really well with this salad.

Pizzelles II

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
These came out delicious, very crisp so I don't know why some people had problems with them staying soft. I used butter instead of margarine because I just don't use margarine for baking. While they were cooking, my husband came in the kitchen and said "something smells like my childhood" (he's Italian). He said they tasted just like the ones his mother used to make. I have a Salton electric pizzelle baker and the only disappointment is that the designs were very faint so they don't look very pretty. Machine directions said 90 seconds but that was too long, about 75 seconds was perfect.

Sweet and Sour Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2010
Had some egg rolls but nothing to dip them in so found this, made it in a few minutes and it was perfect! I used cider vinegar instead of white.

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2010
I'll never buy coleslaw dressing again. This was perfect. The only thing I did differently is substitute celery seeds for the poppy seeds (because I like it that way best).

Tangy Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2010
This is the best ham glaze I've ever tasted and resulted in the best ham I ever baked. I used a 10lb shank portion Cook's ham, bone-in and followed the directions on the packaging to cover it tightly in foil and bake 25 minutes per pound at 325 deg. I temoved the foil and basted it with the glaze several times during the last 30 minutes. It came out juicy with a beautiful and delicious glaze. The next day I sliced thick pieces and fried it in a little butter until hot and then added leftover glaze and it was even better the next day! I will definitely make this again. I didn't have dark brown sugar so used light brown and added about a tablespoon of molasses and I was out of Diijon mustard so used spicy brown mustard. Perfect!

Gorgonzola and Wild Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2010
This was great. I made it as directed except I didn't have any shallots and the package of dried chanterelles was 3/4 ounce...2 ounces would have been way too much for the amount of rice (and expensive, the 3/4 ounce package was almost $5.00!) I found that 1 quart of broth wasn't enough and I ended up using about 2 more cups than called for. After tasting, I added another tablespoon of gorgonzola and cream. Perfect! If I make it again, I think I'll use mixed wild mushrooms or porcinis for a stronger mushroom taste and a little more truffle oil added after cooking.

Sherry Sour Cream Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2010
I made this tonight and taking suggestions from other reviewers I sauteed some sliced onions and mushrooms in the pan before deglazing with sherry and adding sour cream and I sprinkled the chicken with garlic powder (I didn't have fresh). I only baked the chicken 35 minutes, 1 hour would have been way too long. I thought the rosemary taste was a little strong but I'm giving it 5 stars because my husband declared it delicious and worthy of a world class restaurant!

Lemon Pudding Cake II

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2010
This had a great tart lemon taste I was looking for but I thought the cake layer had an odd texture, not as much like a cake as I was anticipating. I probably won't make it again.

Ginger Creams

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2010
These were very good, a soft cake-like cookie, like little gingerbread cakes. Great with the frosting and tasted best the first day I made them. The next day they were a little dry. I would make them again.

Authentic French Meringues

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
These are great!!!! I love meringues and these are so much better than store-bought, no cream of tartar after-taste. I had a little trouble with the temperature of the oven, keeping the door ajar with a gas stove isn't really an option. I put the oven at about 175 and kept the door closed. There was some minor cracking but it was only cosmetic. The taste is fantastic, melt in your mouth with a little chewiness in the center. Use parchment paper for no cleanup and they peel right off. Also let the egg whites come to room temperature before beating and you shouldn't have any problem. I've made these twice now and I make them a little bigger and get about 15 meringues from this recipe and they don't last long!

Mom's Sweet Potato Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
I'm giving this 5 stars even though I cut the sugar down to just 1 tablespoons because I like the natural sweetness of the potatoes without adding too much extra sugar and the topping has brown sugar in it. It was fantastic! Looks great and is an impressive company dish. I will definitely make this again.

Easy Pizza Sauce II

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
I didn't like this at all. I was out of tomato paste (which I've used to make pizza sauce before) so tried this with a can of Hunt's tomato sauce exactly as written. It was thin and not "tomatoey" enough. My hubby liked it better than I did but said it was missing something. I'll stick with the store-bought pizza sauce for my homemade pizzas.

Ginger Crab Cakes

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2009
These were good, but if you aren't a fan of of fresh ginger, you won't like them. I followed the recipe exactly except substituted cracker crumbs instead of bread crumbs because that's what I had on hand. Very messy to make but browned nicely and looked beautiful when done. They went well with a tangy coleslaw with pineapple. They had a nice fresh taste and if I make them again, I think I'll use less ginger (and I love ginger!)
