Flourless Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: May 28, 2014
This is incredible! It got rave reviews from everyone, even those not crazy about chocolate (me.) It's both elegant and easy and will definitely be on my family's special occasion list from now on. I used butter that was perhaps a bit too soft and was afraid it would separate when I mixed in the syrup and melted chocolate, but it was fine. My only suggestion is to make sure to use room temperature eggs and then temper them before adding to the rest of the ingredients. Texture was silky smooth, the taste rich but not heavy, better than truffles!

Overnight Blueberry French Toast

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2013
Gluten free! I made this with the heels of the (expensive) gluten free bread we eat that I'd been collecting in the freezer. I used half blueberries and half strawberries, as that was what I had, and increased the eggs to 14 as it looked a bit dry. I also decreased the sugar to 3/4 cup and instead of mixing in the syrup, I dribbled it over the top. Because of a change in plans, it was 14 hours before I could bake it, and it still turned out beautifully, not all all mushy. Finally, rather than making the cooked sauce, I simply mashed up some strawberries and mixed in a little sugar--no cooking. We ended up serving it as dessert with a choice of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. It was a big hit, and the leftovers are rapidly disappearing. It's great even cold straight from the refrigerator!

Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2013
This was by far the best ham I have ever had and was a huge hit with my extended family who asked why we don't have ham more often. Highly recommended!

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2013
This is superb! I tinkered a bit as I always do (no, I don't remember exactly what I changed but it was nothing major) and I used uncooked noodles. Very, very good and the noodles were just right! I'll definitely make this again and again.

Eclair Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2013
I'm optimistically giving this five stars, though that wasn't my result. I think the thickness of the layers may be crucial to a good result. Mine were too thick and completely overwhelmed the cracker layer. It's definitely easy to make and would lend itself to many variations. Using real whipped cream, for example, would be excellent, though you'd have to make sure it would all be eaten pretty quickly.

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2012
Wonderful! I made this for dinner to night. It takes just minutes to throw together. I followed the recipe as is except for halving the butter. Honestly, I think it could do with even less. I was using boneless chicken thighs, so I covered it for the first 45 minutes and then basted it periodically. I served it with Harvest Rice Dish, also on this site. Both were a big hit with my family and will work well for company, too.

Harvest Rice Dish

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2012
This is wonderful! I didn't have everything on hand so ended up using all jasmine rice, and I used roasted cashews instead of almonds. My family agrees that this is definitely a keeper! It will also be a great choice when company comes. With it I served Honey Baked Chicken, also on this site. It was a great combo.

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2010
My family loves the taste of this rice, though I learned the hard way to use garlic powder or minced garlic rather than garlic salt. With garlic salt and broth made from chicken bullion cubes it's WAY too salty. I've made this twice now, though, and, I simply cannot get the rice to cook. I guess next time, I'll cook it ahead of time.

Margarita Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2010
This dressing is amazing! In fact, I had more salad solely so I could have more dressing. I served with with mixed baby greens, heavy on the arugula. I didn't have much fresh lime juice, but I did have non-alcoholic margarita mix, so I used that to fill in. I also used fresh cilantro. This will definitely be a staple for us!
