Wedge Salad with Elegant Blue Cheese Dressing

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
This dressing is absolutely fantastic. I replaced the bleu cheese with gorgonzola (since gorgonzola is a mild form of bleu cheese). A keeper!

The Best Meatballs You'll Ever Have

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
These were good, omitted the hot spices. There's a little kept secret Italians use when making meatballs...add a about 1/3 cup of water, yes water, to your meatballs. Raw meatballs should feel wet and soft, and you'll be amazed that your cooked meatballs will come out soft and tender, not dry. Try it, you'll be amazed.

Haven't tried this recipe but will this week. I like cabbage rolls but not all the work, read all the good reviews, and really looking forward to making.

Mexican Corn

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
Comfort food indeed. So good you can eat it all week! I use half the cream cheese and for the other half use sour cream. No butter, add 2 cans of Ortega green chilis, sometimes throw in some leftover cooked rice and sprinkle with green onion. Really, really, good.

Honey Milk Tea - Hong Kong Style

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
I tried this drink and really liked it but way too sweet for me. Instead of using the condensed milk, I used regular whole milk...loved it.

Black Bean Soup II

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
This is an easy and savory soup. I wouldn't change it a bit except that I add 1/2 tsp of chili powder. It gives it a rich, smoky flavor.

Russian Green Bean and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2010
This soup is hearty and delish. If you're scared of adding sauerkraut, then just cut up some fresh cabbage and it will be just as delicious. Don't forget the dill!

Walnut Balls

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
Excellent cookie, but if you are making and don't have super fine sugar you can use powdered sugar to roll cookies. Most recipes use powdered. This is a dry cookie kind of like shortbread so it's packed with tons of flavor and always a favorite for anyone eating for the first time.

Pot Stickers Traditional

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
These do take some time and work, but are really good to eat. To avoid getting burned when adding the water to the hot pan with oil, my mother only adds a few sprinkles of water with her fingers, just enough to create a little steam and cover. You don't need all the water, plus your pot stickers won't get soggy. The water is meant to create a little steam to soften and cook fast.

Best Ever Split Pea

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
Soak peas over night in water; when done discard water. This step gets rid of all the gas in the peas and easier to digest plus less flatulence. Follow soup directions.

Homemade Tomato Sauce I

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
I loved this recipe and did add some extra salt for flavor. I also added some ketchup as I do to all spaghetti sauces as for some reason it adds this little kick that I love. The carrots add a nice sweetness too.

Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
These are delish but hot hot. For something different I take some of the sauce and add BBQ sauce to taste. Then we have original wings that are hot hot, and then my BBQy wings that are kind of sweet and a little hot for those that are not crazy about hot stuff - a great combination and guests love the hot and sweeter combo.

Blonde Brownies II

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
This recipe as written is doubled. When using this recipe cut the ingredients in half. Will still make a lot of bars for your family or group. These are really sweet too so you'll probably want to cut down even more on the amount of sugar. An excellent recipe just way too much. We add shredded coconut to our bars.

Pork Medallions

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
I've been searching for the perfect pork recipe and this is the winner! Made it just as written and turned out delish! The only problem I had is that next time I'll double the recipe :)

Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2009
These mushrooms are simply the best. If you want to cut down on a bunch of time and a bunch of ingredients, steps, cost, cook together a tube of Jimmy Dean ground sausage (remove fat) and an 8 oz pack of cream cheese and stuff mushrooms. Stick in oven 350 for 10 min. Just as good but less steps. For attractiveness, sprinkle with a little parsley.

Russian Tea Cakes I

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
This is a 5th generation heirloom cookie recipe that some of us have been eating/making since we were little. Make sure to start with room temp butter, nuts should be cut very small. Once you roll and stick in oven, they will flatten a little. Don't roll them in powdered sugar right out of the oven cause they'll get all sticky. Let them cool for 5-6 minutes, then roll. Big difference. Some people double roll them in sugar but really not necessary and added cost of sugar. Some people make chocolate ones, some people add red or green food coloring. Someone new at baking can easily do these cookies and become a big hit and start a new tradition.
