Spaghetti Carbonara II

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2002
SandyT. here -- thanks for all the positive reviews! This recipe is a home adaptation of one from Angeli Restaurant in Los Angeles (where I was pastry chef for four years). The original recipe used cured, unsmoked Italian pancetta bacon (which is delicious if you can find it). Myself, I use applewood smoked American bacon, and usually double the amount in the recipe. All your suggestions (adding cream, peas, mushrooms, etc., or omitting things) are great, because cooking should constantly evolve, depending on the cook. Please continue to let your personal tastes be your guide!

Easy Focaccia

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2001
One thing: you can use a glass or metal bowl to mix this bread, doesn't really have to be stoneware. This is a good, basic focaccia.

The real thing. However, it is greatly improved if you double the garlic, and use half Kalamata and half Nicoise (or picholine) olives. Excellent!

Cooky Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2001
This is the cookie my mom used to call "Ranger Cookies" (also sometimes called Cowboy Cookies) -- she got the recipe from the LA Unified School District. This dough makes a great chocolate chip cookie -- just add 3 or 4 cups chips to this recipe.

Cheezy Chicken Spaghetti Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2001
Excellent -- one of my fave AR recipes, BUT two things: the transfer from AR's old format left out that one of the Cheez Whiz jars should be "Salsa" or "Mexican" flavor. Plus, if you use just 8 oz. of spaghetti you'll end up with tons of sauce, so I use either 12 oz. or even 16 oz. I also add 1 tsp. garlic powder - makes it even tastier!

Brown Sugar Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2001
This is a terrible cake. I am a pastry chef and followed the recipe as written, plus my oven is well-calibrated. What I ended up with was a dry, hard product that was a complete waste. Needs at least 1 cup sour cream, another egg and 1/2 cup butter. Beware!

Cincinnati Chili I

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2000
Excellent! I've never had chili in Cincinnati (only heard about it from my husband), but this is a great recipe. Very unusual and delicious, and wonderful on spaghetti with cheese and onions.

Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2001
This is an excellent cookie...after you add a bit more salt (peanut butter cookies need salt) and add another cup of peanut butter chips.

Heavenly Potatoes and Ham

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2001
Spectacular! I made this for a dinner party and it was a smashing success. I did, however, reduce the amount of potatoes to 4 pounds, used Yukon Gold potatoes, and added an extra can of soup, and 1 1/2 teaspoons each of dry mustard and garlic powder. I definitely will make this again!

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2000
Excellent method, but do double the amount of garlic AND crumbs/Parmesan. The result is also better if you use a really good, fruity extra virgin olive oil with the garlic. Also, a few grinds of fresh pepper really lifts the dish. Great cold, too.
