Spring Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2007
This salad is close to the 5-cup salad I normally make, but the addition of toasted coconut made it much better! I used Greek yogurt in place of the sour cream, added a tablespoon of honey, mixed the brown sugar in with the fruit, used fresh pineapple, and subbed toasted pecans for the walnuts. Sprinkled vanilla sugar over the top, and we loved it! Thanks for sharing, Karla.

That Good Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2007
What a beautiful salad! I like the fact that it was not overloaded with salt, and I agree with previous reviewers that it is light and would go with anything. The lemon juice, oil & garlic dressing is light and not highly seasoned like commercial dressings, and it allows the wonderful combo of ingredients to meld without overwhelming any of the flavor. I only had provolone, but I think the swiss would be better, and the touch of toasted almonds made it very special. I halved the recipe for 3 of us, and still had leftovers. I can foresee adding a touch of honey to the dressing, grilled chicken as suggested by isabelleaucoin, green onions, or feta cheese--the possibilities are endless. However, this salad is delicious exactly as written!

Easy French Dip Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2007
These were so good and so easy! I had leftover roast beef and beef broth in the freezer, homemade rosemary bread, and provolone. I added a little rosemary to the broth, and it was perfect. My family loved it! Thanks for a great idea,writergirl.

Crisp Lemon Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2007
Loved the flavor and the texture. I thought they were a little salty and will use all butter and leave out the salt next time. I used 1 teaspoon lemon extract and 1 teaspoon lemon juice. thanks for sharing, Dollie!

Never Fail Biscuits

Reviewed: May 31, 2007
As soon as my husband took a bite, he announced "these biscuits are great", and they are! I am happy to add my 5 star rating to the pack. My only disappointment was that they didn't rise as high as I thought they would, but they were still light and melt-in-your-mouth delicious. Best luck I've had with any biscuit recipe. I like the addition of sugar--I think it tones down the baking powder flavor. Great recipe!

Easy Sausage Strata

Reviewed: May 31, 2007
My hubby raved about this! For such a simple dish, it really is tasty. Here are the only changes I made: I only had half pound of sausage, and frankly, it was plenty; added 3 pieces of cooked & crumbled bacon; did not add the salt--there was plenty in the cheese & the sausage; like brwneyedchef, I sauteed the sausage with some onion; finally, I sprinkled dill weed over the top before refrigerating. I only had 6 hours to refrigerate, but it worked just fine. Very, very good recipe and one I will certainly use again, especially for overnight guests.

Spicy Corn Dip

Reviewed: May 28, 2007
Delicious dip--the sweetness and crunch of the corn is so good with the tang of the sour cream, mayo, and cheese. Although this was good just as written, we added a few cherry tomatoes and a bit of diced red & green peppers. I used light sour cream and fat-free mayonnaise; however, we ate it with full-fat Fritos! I love the possibility of adding different types of cheese, different veggies, etc., and enhancing it even more.

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!
