Toscana Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2005
Very good approximation of the Olive Garden recipe, with the exception that I used bulk italian sausage instead of pork sausage links. I also took the advice of the other reviewer, added red pepper flakes, salt and pepper, and a little corn starch for thickening. I also used 2 C chicken broth and 2 C water instead of the 2 T chicken broth and 4 C water. I also used 1/2 C cream instead of 1/3.

Kris' Lentil Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2008
This recipe was full of flavor, hearty, and just right for a cold wintry night! Thanks for sharing, Kris. For those who think there's not enough flavor, try using a smokier polska kielbasa -- I happened to have gotten ahold of some wedding kielbasy from www.andysdeli.com and it released a LOT of flavor into the soup. I rarely give 5 stars to any recipe, but this one is outstanding!

Chunks of Glass

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2004
My step-kids wouldn't even eat this. Was a lot of hassle to make something that was pretty, but not really edible. It nearly all went to waste.

Cranberry Conserve

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2004
Easy, delicious, and beautiful. Guests are impressed with "real" cranberry conserve, as opposed to that yukky stuff from a can.

Libby's® Pumpkin Cranberry Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2005
Delicious and moist. I gave it only 4 stars because I thought it would be a little better if the cranberries were either chopped or quickly food processed. While making for a pretty presentation when left whole, the very tart cranberries were a little too intense. I think coarsely chopping them up and distributing them more evenly in the batter would improve the recipe a bit.

Cookie That Thinks It's a Brownie

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
I thought these were just OK. I replaced the nuts with white chocolate chips. Recipe's OK, but I probably won't make them again. Thanks for sharing the recipe, though.

Chicken Wild Rice Soup III

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
Very bland -- I could tell from the recipe it would be bland, and even added spices to make it less so, but to no avail. I had the same problem as another reviewer with there not being enough liquid. The rice expanded so much that I had to transfer half the soup to another crock pot, which was a big mess. My step-daughter liked it, but it made so much (about a gallon), I don't think she's going to be able to eat it quickly enough and I expect I'll have to throw out half of it -- waste of good chicken breast, potatoes, and wild rice. Won't make it again.

Triple Berry Crisp

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2006
So yummy and very easy. I took the advice of others and upped the berries to 2 C. each. I only used 5 T. of sugar and it was fine, as the berries were ripe and flavorful. I made the dough in the food processor and it turned out great, and there was a lot of it. Definitely a keeper.

Rum and Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2005
Absolutely delicious and very impressive. Definitely plan to use a baking dish that is at least a couple inches taller than the mixture when poured in, as the mixture and topping tend to bubble. Very tasty, though, and guests ask for it every year at Thanksgiving.

Ali's Greek Tortellini Salad

Tasty and light. Good Lenten dish and good for a light meal on a warm day. Could use a little more dressing.

Charlotte's Tortellini Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2009
Tasty and light. I slivered the peppers into half-matchstick size cuts to help distribute the flavor throughout. Would make again.

Italian Confetti Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2006
Very tasty and versatile recipe. It does dry a bit when you store it overnight, but that is typical of pasta salads and is easily remedied by adding a dab of mayo to perk it up. I make this all the time because it's so easy and flavorful. One time I didn't have basil on hand and instead subbed dried dill -- worked great and was delicious.

Creamed Spinach with Onions and Bacon

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2006
I thought it tasted fine, though have no frame of reference because I had never made bacon before. The recipe looks daunting, but it is quite easy if you follow it closely. The guest who really likes creamed spinach had two servings.

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2008
Didn't change a thing; came out great. Husband and step-kids loved it over some egg noodles. Good comfort food, easiest thing to prepare, and good for the budget too at about $8 for a double recipe.

The Best Vegetarian Chili in the World

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2008
Due to the amount of oregano, this tastes a little less like chili and a little more like spaghetti sauce. Next time I'll reverse the quantities so there's more chili powder and less oregano. That being said, this is a flavorful tasty dish. Will make again. Thanks for sharing it.
