Cornmeal Strawberry Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2000
I doubled this recipe and it came out okay. It tasted more like cornbread with strawberries. Didn't go over too well with my kids and the neighborhood kids, but husband's co-worker's ate it. I don't think I'll make this again.

Olive Cheese Appetizers

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2000
These are a little work, but the results are great! My neighbor immediately asked for the recipe and my (picky) mother-in-law liked them, too. I made them early in the day and kept them in the fridge. In the evening, I just popped them in the oven and voilá! They were done in no time.

Honeycomb Stix

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2000
I tried these because they sounded different and unusual. They are really good and definitely one of those "I-Can't-Believe-It" recipes! They are very easy but a little time consuming. I would make them on a day when you have a little time. Since they're kept in the freezer, you will have them on hand anytime - especially on those days when you have very little time.

Hornets Nest Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2000
This cake tastes wonderful and is really easy. The instructions are written a little confusing, I think. You need to mix the cake mix batter as written on the instruction box and then add the pudding. It sounded to me like you add the yellow cake mix powder to the pudding. I figured it out when the mass looked strange :-) Good cake!

Kentucky Butter Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2000
Despite some of the negative reviews of this recipe (but overall positive reviews), I decided to try this. It came out wonderful and is truly an easy one-bowl cake. It came out very moist and delicious. A keeper for me!

Spinach and Mushroom Pinwheels

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2000
This has quickly become a favorite! I've made them twice so far and each time they have been a hit. The beauty is that they can be made ahead of time and frozen (that's what attracted me to this recipe in the first place). What a timesaver!! I've also varied the recipe a little, adding more spices and even finely chopped nuts! These are really terrific for parties and taste great.

Sherbet Shower Surprise

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2000
This is very easy and good. I used pineapple juice and lemon-lime soda, but substituted strawberry sherbet instead. Very nice! I was thinking of making this for 'adults only' one day, so I'm going to try adding some sparkling wine. I'm sure that would give it a nice 'kick'.

Puff Pastry Roll

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2000
This was very easy, different, and tasty. You can also vary the spices and ingredients. I has some chopped nuts on hand so I tossed them in as well. I'll be making this again soon!

Hummus III

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2000
This is very easy and delicious! I had to add a tiny bit of water to get it to puree better, but that's it. I made it the day before our party and kept it in the fridge. I think that helped the flavors blend better, because it was really tasty. A keeper!

Green Onion Dip I

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2000
This was very easy to make and. while it got rave reviews from party guests, I thought it was just okay. However, our guests just about licked the bowl clean, so I guess it's just me. :-)

Twice Baked Potatoes I

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2000
While these are a little bit of work, they are very easy and taste wonderful! I could hardly believe it when my picky kids ate every last bite! I added some cream cheese to the mixture and it gave it a creamier, richer texture and flavor.

Marinated Mushroom and Eggplant with Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2000
The combination of mushrooms and eggplant is great and the marinade is easy and delicious. However, we did not think too much of the peanut sauce and the kabobs actually tasted wonderful without it.

Simmering Chicken Strawberry Kabobs

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2000
I used turkey instead of chicken and it was good, too. My husband said the marinade was a little too "lemon-y" for his taste but I liked it. The real surprise was the strawberries! If you've never had a roasted strawberry then you're in for a treat. They taste really nice. We lost a few strawberries when they fell off the kabobs and into the fire but on the whole most of them made it. It does look exotic and is something different for guests. A keeper!

Bacon Water Chestnut Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2000
This was a big hit and it's very simple. The sauce is great, although next time I may reduce the amount of brown sugar a little bit. At the next office party or gathering I'm making these again. Great recipe!

BLT Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2000
I doubled this recipe for a party and while it got raves reviews, I personally thought it was a tad too salty because of the large amount of bacon. Next time I do this, I will scale down a bit on the bacon and then it will be *perfect*!

Angel Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2000
I made this for a dinner party and it well received. The sauce is heavy and filling and very, very tasty. I e-mailed this recipe to a friend who also got rave reviews from her family. :-)

Creamy Potato Pork Chop Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2000
This gave me a good basic idea and after a few changes, it came out really nice. I didn't have frozen hash browns at home so I just grated 4 potatoes and added it to the mixture. I also grated a reg. onion. I didn't have sour cream but I had heavy cream and used a 1/2 cup of that. I also crumbled some fried bacon into it. This is nice because you can vary it to other things that need using up in the fridge.

Pizza Pinwheels

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2000
What a great idea!! I made this using homemade pizza dough (made in my bread machine) and not only was it simple, it was a great hit with the kids. I will definitely use this for the kids' b-day parties in the future. They're easy to handle, yummy, and make no mess. Thank you!!!
