Chocolate Cookie Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: May 27, 2007
This has a good flavor and is not overly sweet; however it was not quite the consistency I needed. For me there is too much butter and not enough sugar for it to be as creamy as I prefer.

Orange Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: May 24, 2007
Simply perfect for Carolyn's Orange Rolls, from this website, and the orange zest was wonderful! I left out the nuts and added 1/2 teaspoon vanilla; other than that, the recipe was perfect for me. I will use this on other desserts and will try it with nuts too.

Carolyn's Orange Rolls

Reviewed: May 24, 2007
These rolls are so delicious. The delicate orange flavor makes a nice counterpoint to the richness of the buttery dough. Almost like eating cotton candy, they are so tender! I iced them with the Orange Cream Cheese Frosting, from this website, and they are irresistible. I will also use this recipe for cinnamon rolls and dinner rolls. Outstanding!

Hawaiian Tarts

Reviewed: May 23, 2007
I actually made this recipe as butter cookies and did not use the filling. As cookies these are rich, fragrant with butter, and not too sweet. Add icing, and they make a beautiful and delectable treat. I will definitely try the recipe as written too.

Lemon Cream Cupcakes

Reviewed: May 23, 2007
I really loved the flavor (the touch of lemon zest was not overpowering)and the texture of these cupcakes. I halved the recipe, but I kept the icing ingredients the same. I was still only able to frost 13 cupcakes, so next time I will really double up on the icing, which was melt-in-your-mouth good!

Lemon Icebox Pie III

Reviewed: May 14, 2007
We loved this, but I did modify it just a little. I only had 8 oz cream cheese, so I folded about a cup of Cool Whip into the mix. I also used the juice of 1 lemon and 1 lime. Added 1 teaspoon of vanilla and 1/4 teaspoon orange extract. The recipe I normally use for lemon icebox pie only calls for condensed milk and lemon juice, but I like this recipe better, because I believe the cream cheese tones down the flavor of the condensed milk. We really enjoyed the creaminess and light lemon taste.

Cottage Dill Bread

Reviewed: May 14, 2007
This bread has such a wonderful aroma while baking. The dill & onion provide a delicate flavor, and the texture is tender and just slightly chewy at the crust. I used onion powder in place of the onion and dill weed as well as dill seed, and butter instead of margarine. We ate it for sandwiches and just loved it.

Chocolate Chow Mein Clusters

Reviewed: May 9, 2007
I doubled this but added more than double the chow mein noodles. I used roasted peanuts. The saltiness of the noodles and the peanuts is a nice contrast to the sweet chocolate. Love the mix of butterscotch chips and semi-sweet chocolate! My husband says they remind him of the ones his aunt used to make. Thank you Tracey!

Chocolate Heart Cookies

Reviewed: May 8, 2007
I haven't iced these yet, but the cookie itself is quite tasty--I've had 2 already and having to fight myself not to eat anymore. For me and my sweet tooth, they are just right--chocolaty, slightly crisp outside, soft inside. I halved the recipe just to try it, but left the full amount of sugar (I forgot!) It was a happy accident, because I think it needs the extra sugar. Thank you, T Moore!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: May 3, 2007
I guess I'll add my 5-star rating to the host of others for this exceptional dish. This is my first time preparing tilapia, and my hubby only likes fried fish, so I was a little apprehensive about what he would think. He declared it a winner! I was impressed with the taste of the topping with the delicate flavor and firm yet buttery texture of the fish. Loved it!

Reuben Sandwich I

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2007
I had all the ingredients ready when my husband got home from work and let him make these since he is the griddle & grill master--he did an amazing job, and the sandwiches were excellent. He heats the sauerkraut and meat separately on the griddle, then piles both on the bread, tops with the cheese, and grills the whole thing. Used Sauerkraut Rye bread, from this website.

Sauerkraut Rye Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2007
I was attracted to LynninHK's photo of this bread, and although mine didn't rise much or produce as beautiful a loaf as her picture, the bread was dense, savory, and delicious. I added a heaping tablespoon of caraway seeds because I love the aroma and 2 teaspoons of unsweetened cocoa powder to make the bread darker. Had a slice with butter straight out of the oven, then used the rest for Reuben Sandwich I, on this website.

RamJam Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2007
This was just delicious! I subbed rosemary for the Italian seasoning, and like LadyJayPee, I used low-sodium soy sauce and olive oil. We sliced it for our chicken caesar salad, and we were raving about the flavor. Great recipe!

Cottage Pudding - Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2007
I really like the texture of this cake. Since I doubled the recipe, I ended up putting 4 teaspoons of baking powder in it, and that seemed too much, because the flavor was somewhat like that of a biscuit. I made it with 2 8-oz cans of crushed pineapple, drained. With the exception of the baking powder flavor, we enjoyed it. It was good for breakfast the next day, too! ;-)

Banana Cupcakes

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2007
These were delicious, although I overbaked mine just a tad. I added some dark rum & cinnamon to the batter and some rum flavoring to a brown sugar icing that I found on another website. Very good flavor and a great recipe!

Kim's Chocolate Fudge Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2007
I was still full from dinner, but I made the ultimate sacrifice and taste-tested a sliver of cake--now I am nearly in a chocolate-induced coma. It is so moist, with pockets of creamy chocolate, and very rich. I used fat-free, sugar-free pudding mix and light sour cream, thinking I would save a few calories; then (I'm embarrassed to admit this) I negated the calorie-save by drizzling on an entirely unnecessary chocolate glaze. For the liqueur, I used half butterscotch schnappes and half coffee liqueur. Wonderful recipe!

Una's Cheddar Beer Bread (bread machine dough cycle)

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2007
Update 5/27/07: I made this over a month ago, and today I pulled a loaf out of the freezer. Thawed & reheated, it is just as flavorful and tender/chewy as it was the day I made it. Awesome bread! ***Original review 4/17/07: This bread is delicious. I made it manually, and I adjusted the ingredients by adding dill seed & dill weed and smoked sweet paprika; I did not add cayenne, marjoram, or basil. I used butter instead of margarine, and I chose an Amber Bock dark lager. The texture was slightly chewy, and the bread was fragrant with the cheese and beer aroma--made the kitchen smell wonderful.

Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2007
I ran out of time and had to saute the asparagus in the butter, instead of roasting in the oven, and I poured the sauce over, covered & let it steam for about 3-4 minutes. It was awesome. I love asparagus, but the sauce was incredible with a wonderful rich flavor, reminiscent of au jus. My 94 year-old Mom loved it--she asked me what was in the sauce, and when I told her, commented that I had become a gourmet cook--the ultimate compliment!

BLT Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2007
During dinner my husband commented "this really tastes like a BLT--very, very good!" So this is a home run in my book, because my husband, who doesn't eat tomatoes on anything except bacon & tomato sandwiches, loved this & wants me to make it again. I used iceberg lettuce, and for the dressing I used part fat-free mayo, half buttermilk & half 1% milk, about half the garlic powder, and added in a sprinkle of dried basil. Campari tomatoes really put this over the top. This one will be in the 5-star keeper file!

Texas Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2007
Good basic recipe to add your own touches. I did half black beans and half garbanzo beans, added a small can of V-8 instead of the can of diced tomatoes, and did not add any chicken broth. I didn't use a crockpot but just simmered on the stove and ended up with a thick, delicious, and healthy soup that I served with sour cream and tortilla chips. Loved it!
