Whitechapel Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2008
I made this for my husband and we both loved it! I would recommend cooking the vegetable seperately since the rutubaga needs more time to cook and the other vegetables need less. I didn't pre-cook the peas at all and just added the frozen peas directly to the meat along with the other vegetables. I also would use a 15 oz. can of tomato sauce rather than 8 oz. because it didn't seem saucy enough (I added some left over pasta sauce we had in the fridge and it worked great). For the potatoes I used a whole package of the frozen Ore Ida steam and mash potatoes and they worked great :) Yummy!

Crayfish or Shrimp Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2005
I made this for a potluck and it was well liked by all. I used penne instead of angel hair to make it easier to serve. I used shrimp and crab and used 3 cups cream, 3 cups half and half. It takes a long, long, long, time to reduce and turned out really wet. Next time I'll probably just use 1.5 cups cream and 1.5 cups half and half.

Cherry Cordial Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
I sent these to my husband who is deployed and he really liked them. He shared them with his office and his boss said they were "awesome". The only change I made was with the chocolate chips. We don't like white chocolate so I just used a full cup of semi-sweet.

Oma's Fabulous Matzo Ball Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
This was good, but we ended up with enough matzo ball mix to make matzo balls for 5 pots of soup! I threw most of it away.

Cucumber Punch

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2009
Everyone loved this, but I can't really give it 5 stars because I didn't follow the recipe exactly. I used real lemonade (a bottle of Simply Lemonade), and added a liter of club soda to cut the sweetness and add some fizz. It was great!

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
I should have known from other reviews that I wouldn't like these... they are VERY cakey (I prefer flatter, chewier, crispier cookies), but I thought I could "fix" them by slightly altering the recipe. I used half butter half shortening, and half white half brown sugar, but I don't think that made a difference. They are very puffy and kept whatever shape they were put on the pan--they don't spread at all (my first batch came out in little balls because I used a cookie scoop, after that I tried flattening them a bit before putting them in the oven). I added extra cinnamon and nutmeg as previous reviewers suggested, but they still tasted bland to me. The only good thing about them was the chocolate chips! If you like cake-like cookies you'll probably like these, but they just weren't for me.

Kerri's Holiday Punch

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
I made this for a girls' weekend in the mountains. It was really good, but be careful because it's really strong!

Champagne Punch III

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2007
Oh my gosh, this is so wonderful and refreshing! Be careful though, it tasted so delicious I almost forgot how much alcohol was in it and before I knew it I'd had three glasses and was feeling pretty good :)

Easiest Eggplant

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2006
Really good! I used regular mayo and added 2 cloves of garlic to the mayonaise. I thought it might be too much garlic, but it tasted great! I'll definitely make this again.

These are the best peanut butter cookies I've ever had! The consistency and taste were perfect. I couldn't stop eating them!

Indian-Spiced Roasted Chickpeas

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2014
I make this all the time and love it! My kids and husband love it too. I double the recipe and we gobble the whole thing up in no time. It completely satisfies my cravings when I want something salty/spicy/crunchy to snack on and it makes me feel good knowing it's so much better for us all than grabbing a bag of chips! i go easy on the cayenne pepper since my kids are still little, but some day I want to try making it really spicy. Mmmmmm...

Crisp Lemon Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2008
I substituted real lemon juice for the lemon extract and milk and also added the zest from half a lemon. Everyone in my office loved them, but I think I would prefer them a little more lemony so next time I think I'll use more lemon zest.

Easy Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2006
Not impressed. I definitely picked up on the fruit loops taste that another reviewer mentioned. I didn't really like the consistency either. The were more cakey rather than chewy.
