Fabulous Fruit Salad II

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2007
We loved this! I've not used cinnamon as a spice in fruit salad before and it was aromatic and scrumptious. I used fresh pineapple, red grapes, and bananas and added some lemon juice and a little brown sugar.

Pasta with Fresh Tomatoes and Corn

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2007
This was a very refreshing and satisfying summer dish. I chose orzo as my pasta and used red cherry, roma, and yellow pear tomatoes, and fresh basil--all from my garden, which made it taste even better! I subbed balsamic vinegar per the suggestion of other reviewers. Delicious--I will definitely make again!

Easy, Eggless Strawberry Ice Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2007
I agree with Shawn--it is very refreshing on a hot day. I had to taste it as soon as it was ready, and it is delicious. I had a cup of crushed strawberries instead of the full 2 cups, but it was plenty for us. I used 1% milk and evaporated milk, since I didn't have cream. Very good strawberry flavor. I do think 1/4 teaspoon of salt is too much, so I added 1/8 teaspoon. Even that was a little too much for me; I will only add a pinch next time.

Luscious Slush Punch

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2007
When I was young, my Mom was always "the punch lady" for church receptions, so for her 95th birthday I decided to serve punch to her--I chose this recipe and she loved it! My only change was to divide into four smaller portions to fit into one of her old Wexford crystal bowls. I ended up using exactly half the recipe for 12 people, because everyone kept going back for seconds & thirds. We still have some frozen so next time might try some Asti Spumante instead of the soda for an adult version!

Crab and Cheese Spread

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2007
I served this at a family gathering and everyone loved it. Even my "tell me what's in it first" husband loved it and is eating the few bites left over today. I added extra lemon juice, and next time I'll add more hot sauce. I used Rachel's Wasabi Cocktail Sauce, from this website. I think this would be equally good with shrimp.

White Chocolate Pound Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2007
Made this for my mother's 95th birthday celebration, and it was a hit. I love the crust it makes, the flavor is just delicious with that hint of almond, and the white chocolate gives it an elegant touch. Instead of chopping, I melted the white chocolate to mix in with the other ingredients, and I only used white chocolate on top. It was simple but perfect.

Brazilian White Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2007
What a simple but savory way to make rice! I followed the recipe exactly, except I had no onion and subbed a shallot, and the instructions and timing are perfect--my rice wasn't sticky! The flavor is delicious as is, but this will become a base for other dishes, with endless possibilities for additions. Thank you for sharing a family treasure, Nandabear.

Kalamata Caviar

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2007
What an innovative idea! I love the pungency and meatiness of the olives, and the garlic gives this delicious spread a robust punch. If you serve it as suggested, the french bread should balance the saltiness of the olives. I can't wait to use it on pizza in place of basil pesto. Thanks for a great idea, Behr Kleine!

Rachel's Wasabi Cocktail Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2007
My first time using wasabi, and I found out that I love it! The recipe is perfect as is, but after mixing up the sauce, I tripled the wasabi! I will make a double batch of this for a family party this weekend when I make a crab dip. Thanks for sharing, Rachel!

Grilled Cheese of the Gods

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2007
These were pretty good, but my family asked me to make my normal grilled cheese next time--my husband said the parmesan overpowered the taste of the cheddar. I followed the suggestion of lynniescorner and added some garlic, and I enjoyed that added flavor. Thank you for sharing your recipe, nevadamommy!

Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2007
This recipe is similar to another recipe we like, Peanut Butter Cookies IX. I enjoyed this one because it is not overly sweet. I ground the oats before adding them, and I used part-crunchy peanut butter. Very good cookies!

Italian Bread II

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2007
We loved this bread--had a nice crust and soft interior and was so delicious! The recipe is very adaptable to a manual process--I kneaded it for about 5 minutes after mixing. I made one big loaf, used a little less salt than specified, and did not use the egg wash or sesame seeds. I'll definitely make this again.

Raspberry Lemon Loaf

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2007
This bread is wonderful! I love the delicate lemon flavor that the peel and the yogurt impart. It is not too dense and the bread is so attractive with the raspberries in every slice. If you prefer a sweeter bread, you might want to add more sugar, but I thought it was perfect as is. Thanks so much for sharing, Carol!

Raspberry Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2007
This was very moist and dense. I used fresh raspberries-they added a nice tang to an otherwise very sweet bread--and I enjoyed the combined taste of banana/raspberry. I might cut back on the sugar and the oil next time. I added a teaspoon of vanilla and left out the walnuts. Thanks for the recipe, Nancy!

Million Dollar Pie I

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2007
We enjoyed this as a light summer dessert. I did leave out the oranges and used a pecan shortbread crust. Thanks for sharing, Glenda!

Teriyaki Onion Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2007
On a whim, I tried these; told my family the hamburgers had a secret ingredient. My daughter, who never likes my burgers, said they were the best burgers she's ever had. My husband, who like his burgers plain with no seasoning, said they were great. The only change I made was to season about 2 lbs of meat using these ingredients instead of one. I don't think my family will let me try anything new again, they are so sold on this recipe!

Lemon Blueberry Drop Scones

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2007
My first time making scones, and I'm sold on these! I only had 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt, so I added some cream to make up for the liquid. My frozen blueberries were fine, but fresh would be awesome. These are a definite keeper, and I will try the lemon yogurt next time.

Early Morning Oven Roasted New Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2007
Delicious! I did half olive oil/half butter and I roasted for twice the amount of time, with frequent stirring, because I love my potatoes crispy. Served them in Caesar Chicken Potato Salad from this site.

Caesar Chicken Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2007
I loved this salad. I did tweak it a bit by roasting the potatoes and marinating the chicken. My husband did not care for potatoes in his salad, but I thought it was very satisfying, so I'm giving it 5 stars! Thanks for sharing, Sarita!

Fruit and Cream Pie I

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2007
I was attracted to the beautiful photo for this recipe and like the photographer, Lindy, I used a shortbread-like crust with a bit of sugar in it and made tart shells for this excellent filling. It is light, fresh, fruity and creamy--just perfect!
