Buffalo Cheesy Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: May 7, 2012
I'm not sure where my review for this went. We really liked this, or I did anyway, DH didn't like bell peppers in his "buffalo stuff" but he's a weirdo. I will absolutely make this again, but using celery and grated carrots in place of the bell pepper (for DH's sake, not because I think it needs changed). I no longer recall if I made any special adjustments but I know I left out the mushrooms! Thanks for sharing!

Roasted Greek Potatoes with Feta Cheese and Lemon

Reviewed: May 6, 2012
I wish it had garlic. Don't overcrowd the pan or they don't come out right. I think I prefer the versions that cook the potatoes right in the lemon juice for a more robust lemon flavor.

Good Meringue

Reviewed: May 5, 2012
This is the first meringue I've ever been really 100% happy with. Incidentally, this is the first one that ever used cream of tartar that I've tried. It was worth every penny - my meringue looked pure white, like clouds, and didn't start to break before hitting stiff peaks. Thank you! EDIT: I made this one again without the cream of tartar and with only 1/2 cup sugar, and baked 13 mins @ 375. I don't know which change made the difference, but I'm even happier with it the 2nd time.

Party Pinwheels

Reviewed: May 3, 2012
I switched out some of the veggies for others, (used celery/radishes/sun-dried tomatoes), and we liked these very much. We served with salads and veggies with dip. Thanks for sharing!

Ham and Cheese Bowties

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2012
This was just a little above OK. I wish I'd used cheddar cheese, Colby is too mild in a dish like this. I could not taste the mustard either and would double or triple it next time. Or use dried mustard in that amount. I think the amount of saltiness in this dish is greatly affected by the type of ham used. I used deli ham and omitted all the salt (from water and recipe) and it was a little under-salted to me. For no reason I can quite determine, this sauce was a little thicker than I wanted it to be when it came time to stir in the noodles; I would reduce the flour/butter roux to 3 and 3 next time to suit my own preferences. Thanks for sharing!

Lemon Dijon Wings

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2012
This came out very well. We used this marinade & basting sauce on boneless skinless chicken breasts which I marinated for something like 2 days. I did add some honey to the marinade because the flavor just wasn't popping to me. We only used about half the total amount of marinade & basting sauce that we made, but your results may vary in that 2 lbs of chicken wings has a lot more surface area to coat! I also vastly reduced the salt and pepper and just added them to taste. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Strawberry Fields

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2012
I made this for Recipe Group for the week of 4/23. I was forced to omit the onions for dietary reasons :( But this was still a 5 star salad. I used reduced fat feta, which was pretty terrible, so I'll use normal feta next time. I really liked the dressing, but I forgot to put the white sugar in. I forgot to even write that ingredient down, actually. The honey was sufficient for me, and I really do love sweet dressings. I would try it both ways but I can vouch that it's plenty tasty without the sugar or onions! Thank you for sharing your recipe :)

Caroline's Firecrackers

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2012
My bark came in a 16 oz pkg and my Cheetos in a 9 3/4 oz package so that's what I used (minus the ones I ate). This is SERIOUSLY addictive stuff. I can't wait to hear what DH's coworkers have to say! I can totally see using this almond bark on the Flamin Hot Munchies mix to make a sort of Chex mix kind of thing, too. I am so sad that anyone, anywhere, threw a batch of this out: I wish they'd thrown it at me! Thanks for sharing, Caroline!

Cottage Pudding - Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2012
I made this cake with butter instead of shortening and added a dusting of cinnamon over my apples, but otherwise followed the recipe. This is outstanding -- I already have a favorite upside-down-cake recipe, but wanted to try this one because of the "pudding" name to see if there was a difference. There is -- this cake is MUCH softer and moister than a traditional upside down cake. I can't quite explain it -- it's not like it's wet or anything, but it's so moist that it is definitely a unique addition to my recipe box. Thank you for sharing!

Blackberry Apple Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2012
My husband really enjoyed this, but I think I'd have liked it better as an all apple or all blackberry pie. The combination of the two without any spices didn't really do it for me. A few changes I'd make if I made it again: Use 3 TB of cornstarch because you lose at least one to wetness in the bowl when mixing; add cinnamon and vanilla (in my case probably dry cinnamon and vanilla sugar, but not everyone has vanilla sugar on hand) somehow. Otherwise I thought this came out really pretty and very tasty aside from the points I already mentioned, which were not noticed by anyone but me. Thanks for sharing!

Lemon Glazed Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2012
This review is for the GLAZE ONLY. This is a 5-star glaze if you replace that last tablespoon of water with more lemon juice or butter. I really love what adding butter to glazes does for them -- so decadent! I used this glaze on AR's "Lemon Gold Cake" and they were very very good together. Thanks for sharing!

Lemon Gold Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2012
This cake came out extremely well. Mine seems to have a looser crumb than what is pictured here, which is undoubtedly an error on my part somewhere in the mixing process. The flavor is exactly what I anticipated, though in the future I would probably zest 2 whole lemons just to boost that flavor profile. I made this into a Bundt cake and it took 50 minutes to cook. Thanks for sharing!

Baked Ham and Cheese Party Sandwiches

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2012
These were very good but I prefer the version with garlic. That might be because I had to leave off the onion due to dietary restraints, but overall these were tasty. Thanks for sharing!

Italian Cream Cake II

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
I made this in cupcakes for Easter dessert and my Dad particularly LOVED it. The leftovers went to DH's work on Monday (made them Saturday) and despite several days in the fridge they were still tender and tasty. They did seem a little greasy when fresh-baked but after a day or so in the fridge that sensation completely mellowed out into goodness. I toasted my coconut and pecans and chopped them in the food processor so I could have an even distribution of goodies throughout my cake & frosting. Thanks for sharing!

Hot Cross Buns

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2012
These were much better than storebought, but I think I have still not found the recipe that converts me into making these every year. Still, they're pretty tasty, and the orangey icing was a nice bonus. Thanks for sharing!

Baked Ziti IV

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2012
This is quite good. It's a little awkward trying to layer, but if you aren't a perfectionist, just plopping it on there gets the job done. I didn't find this dry at all, though I do think maybe the soft cheese mixture could stand to be seasoned. Do use both sour cream and cottage cheese as they both add a unique sour tang -- if you're going to switch to ricotta, just make lasagna.

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2012
I really didn't like this at all, but DH loved it, so since I like all the ingredients I'm just going to go with the assumption that my taste buds are off today, as is sometimes the case. Thanks for sharing!

Grandma McAndrews' Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2012
This is almost identical to "Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread" on this site except that this recipe omits the butter. I miss the butter -- apparently I'm just a glutton that way. This is otherwise very tasty (and much healthier and probably more authentic, too). Thanks for sharing!

Thai Curry Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2012
This was reasonably tasty and easy to do, but not authentic at all, which I didn't really expect it to taste authentic anyway. I recommend doubling all the sauce ingredients (including the green curry paste). I used Thai Kitchen green curry and it was not hot to us. Thanks for sharing!
