Bananas Foster II

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2005
I've made this twice now, first time used rum flavoring and 2nd time used Meyer's Dark Rum. I thought it was a little too liquid using 3-1/2 T of rum, but my family loved it just as it was. It served our family of 3 generously. The flavor is rich and addictive.

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!

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!

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!

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!

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.

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.

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!

Cherry Mash Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2007
Very good & very rich. I didn't have peanuts, but I did use chunky peanut butter. I can see where the addition of salted peanuts would help cut the sweetness. We really enjoyed this, but the remainder is going to the office tomorrow!

Green Bean Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2007
This is the best recipe I have ever used for green beans. My only regret is that I didn't have sesame seeds, but I don't think this dish could have tasted any better than it did. I used 3 cans of drained green beans instead of fresh. Excellent recipe, Robin!

Monterey Ranch Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2007
My husband rated this 5-stars & raved about it during dinner. I had salami that needed to be used, so I added about 1-1/2 cups to the mix, along with some Italian seasoning and garlic powder. Sprinkled parmesan cheese over the top. I didn't use the butter--I just broiled one side before spreading the mixture on the other side. Quick and delicious!

Plain and Simple Sourdough Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2007
We loved this and used it for sandwiches with leftover Easter ham! I added a teaspoon of sugar and a tablespoon of salted butter; only used 1 teaspoon salt. I made it by hand, let it rise as a french-type loaf, slashed it and baked at 400 for about 20-25 minutes. Delicious!

Cranberry Applesauce Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2007
I think these need a little more sugar with the tartness of the cranberries, but my Mom thought they were perfect! The muffins are delicious and will be great with some honey or jelly. I think I'll take a note from jungle jean's suggestion of blueberries and add them with the cranberries next time. I used Holiday Cranberry Applesauce from this site; it includes red hot candies in the ingredients, and it made the muffins a little pink! I left out the nuts. Great recipe, and one I will definitely try again.

Granola Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2007
I was quite happy to find this recipe, because I had some leftovers to use--Almond Maple Granola and Holiday Cranberry Applesauce (both from this site.) The applesauce was red from the red hot candies in the recipe, and it gave the bread a rosy hue! I made this by hand, and I will include more yeast next time, because it took quite awhile to rise, and the bread is fairly dense. The only thing I left out was the cinnamon, and I'll include it next time. The taste is awesome, and I can't wait to have it toasted. Great recipe, Star--thanks for sharing.

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!
