Al's Baked Swiss Steak

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2014
I made this exactly as written, except I didn't add the cheese. I would probably go a bit lighter on the oil the next time. Other than that, it was wonderful - the entire family loved it and asked me to make it again. Win!

Creamy Zucchini and Spinach Rigatoni

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2014
I used frozen chopped spinach instead of fresh - thawed and pressed out most of the water, and added it just before the flour. I also substituted white wine for about half the chicken broth, and added chopped cooked chicken. This was a HUGE hit with my family - including the two picky children - and everyone requested that I make it again.

Fruit Punch

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2014
Made this for a piano recital - it was really easy to take all the (pre-chilled) ingredients and pour them into the container on site. The only "trouble" was scooping the sherbet in, and that was really easy. It was all gone before we left.

Mango Papaya Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2013
Excellent combination of flavors. We had it with grilled red snapper and boiled shrimp - it was great!

Brazilian Cheese Puffs (Pao de Queijo)

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2013
Made these exactly as written except I was out of mozzarella so I used white cheddar. They came out nice and crispy on the outside, but soft and airy on the inside. If you eat gluten free (or paleo-ish except dairy), these make great bread. I will definitely make them again, and substitute various cheeses and other flavors. ***As others have mentioned - it's TAPIOCA starch (or flour), NOT cornstarch. I too am disappointed when people do not make a recipe as written and then give it a poor rating.

Gluten Free Red Velvet Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2012
Excellent recipe! I made this for Christmas, with Alton Brown's red velvet cake cream cheese frosting. I made two layers, and it's not a really tall cake, but the texture is very good. If no one told you it is a GF cake, you would not know - and that is the true test for me. Thanks!

Wazzu Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2012
I didn't have tomato paste on hand, so I used two boxes of Pomi - one chopped tomatoes and the other strained. I used all ground beef. I wanted to keep the heat down so I used a small can of green chiles, diced, instead of the habanero/jalapeno. The seasoning mix is spot-on. This was really good, a hit with the entire family.

Chocolate Meringue Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2012
These turned out great. I had used yolks only to make a cake, and started looking around for a good meringue cookie so that I wouldn't waste the whites. I let the whites sit at room temp for a while before starting. I let the mixer do the work at medium until I got soft peaks, and proceeded as written. I used a small disher to drop onto the cookie sheet - definitely more than a teaspoonful! :-) Baked for 30 minutes and got dry, crisp outsides with just a little chewiness in the center. Very good!

Peppermint Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2011
I liked the peppermint blossom idea as well. I substituted 1/2 tsp peppermint extract for the crushed candies. I dropped balls of dough into a mini muffin pan, baked them for 8 minutes, and then pushed a Hershey candycane kiss (frozen so they don't melt so fast) into each one as soon as they came out of the oven. Really pretty and tasty, and something different since most of our other goodies are chocolate!

Apple-Stuffed Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
I made some slight variations - used maple syrup instead of honey and added a dash of nutmeg. I mixed this with the chopped apples, filled the squash, and dotted the tops with butter. I also added a handful of chopped pecans. I was running short on time, so I put them in Pyrex dishes with a little water in the bottom and microwaved for 5 minutes before baking. My family looked askance at them ("this looks weird") when I served them with dinner, but after just one bite, they gobbled it up and said it was wonderful!

GA Peach Pound Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
I made it exactly as written. Everyone from kids to elderly adults thought it was fantastic, and it was a great way to use some very ripe peaches!

Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2011
Great dressing - that's what makes this good. I marinated chicken in teriyaki sauce and grilled it before slicing into chunks. I also added some sliced snow peas and julienned carrots to the pasta in the last minute of boiling. Very nice!

Italian Pinwheel Rolls

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2011
Very easy - I used the dough hook on my Kitchenaid instead of kneading. The dough was soft and very pliable. I used fresh oregano and dried parsley, and brushed with melted butter when they were done. Everyone loved them!

Sister Schubert's® Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2011
Excellent recipe. Just the right mix of tangy and sweet - I prefer the ones like this that have a bit of vinegar.

Oatmeal Chocolate Coconut Chewy

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2011
Made these as written except: sub'd whole wheat flour for half the AP flour, and left out the nuts as I didn't have any on hand. I did put the batter in the fridge for an hour before baking and I always use a small disher and parchment paper when I bake these type cookies. They held their shape very well and they have a nice texture. Not overly sweet - just right!

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: May 24, 2011
I made these exactly as written, baked for 8 minutes, and had soft, wonderful cookies that didn't last the whole day...and now I'm making a second batch. Simple, easy, and good!

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: May 23, 2011
I took one reviewer's advice and used half butter, half olive oil, and added some chopped fresh basil at the end. Easy, and very good!
