Roasted Duck

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2013
This was fine - I never had duck plain without a sauce before - I'm used to Peking Duck or with the usual apricot sauces. It leaves the duck meat "on its own" - and the flavor is a bit stronger than chicken or turkey. A good dish if you definitely know that you like duck "unmasked".

Maria's Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
Thank you, Maria! This was simple enough for a weekday dinner, yet elegant and tasty enough for a dinner party. Sweet and savory - really delicious even my picky eater was happy.

Cream of Broccoli Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
Even my husband who won't touch broccoli had several bowls! Works well even without the chicken boullon powder, and I substituted soy milk for whole milk.

Pineapple Crisp

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
I would suggest spraying the pan with Pam first since the topping bakes on and is hard to clean off. I was a little unsure of the egg in the topping, and the idea of melting the butter and pouring on top instead of mixing it into the sugar and flour unmelted, as is usually the way to do a crisp, but this came out very well and very crunchy.

Lacy Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2010
These lace cookies are so much simpler than the ones made with nuts, lower in fat and a huge hit. They are especially elegant when made into sandwich cookies filled with melted chocolate and the "laciness" of the texture is highlighted.

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: May 18, 2009
This was a big hit with all of the eggplant lovers in my family. Even I liked it, and I don't usually enjoy eggplant. The recipe is simple, and the dish is filling, and freezes well, so I usually freeze half of this recipe for another night's dinner.

Easy Chocolate Bundt Cake Glaze

Reviewed: May 18, 2009
I hate to put a damper on this recipe, but it didn't work for me. I followed it exactly and yet, the chocolate didn't melt perfectly smoothly, with tiny pieces of chocolate chips still discernable to a knowing palate. I did not begin mixing immediately upon adding the chips, and perhaps therein lies the folly. Since the chocolate didn't mix in well enough, the mixture was thin. I added more chocolate chips, but it still did not thicken adequately. It made a nice chocolate sauce, but definitely not a ganache.

Best White Icing Ever

Reviewed: May 1, 2009
Simple and easy to work with - spread beautifully over the cake and blended effortlessly with food coloring. This will be my new "go-to" basic icing recipe.

Sweet Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2009
These are a HUGE hit in my family - my husband adores candied pecans and he favors this over my usual way of browning the sugar in a pan - this recipe is way easier, much lower in fat, and tastes amazing - it is addictive. I add a dash of vanilla after the eggs are foamy, before adding the sugar mixture.
