Mother's Ham Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2011
Excellent recipe, but way too much salt. There is already salt in the butter (unless you use unsalted) and also in the cheese. You don't need more added to this really. By omitting the salt, this turned out delicious and my family loved it!

Crab Imperial II

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2012
Absolutely delicious. Tastes like a dish you spent hours working on when it's really super simple. My only tweak to this recipe was that I omitted the salt. There's plenty (in my opinion) in the butter and in the Worcestershire sauce, adding any more would have made this far too salty tasting for me. But with that one little change, I found this to be a fabulous dish!

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2012
I have actually made these big cookies before and they are delicious, but for the big cookie, I would love a recipe that is more like the store-bought version. Still, these are super delicious and very easy to make.

Never Fail Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
These are absolutely fabulous and surprisingly easy to make. BUT . . . due to the very, very high calorie, fat & cholesterol count for each biscuit, these will be for special occasions only.

Tiramisu II

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
I doesn't get better than this folks! I am a HUGE tiramisu fan and this is better than any I have ever tasted, and I've had tiramisu in Italy! I also doubled the rum and used 1 cup of coffee. I used a pastry brush to add this mixture to the lady fingers (worked great!) and I gently folded the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture - heavenly!! And yes, it is a MUST that you not serve this the day you make it. It has to be served a day or two later which is perfect for a holiday dessert - it's done and out of the way so you can concentrate on the meal, then wow your guests with this amazing dessert they never even saw you make! The only thing I will say is that this packs a wallop calorie-wise. It's a dessert, so of course it has lots of calories, but just beware the calorie to serving ratio. 12 servings from a 7X11 dish makes for very tiny portions. You will probably eat a piece twice that size, so the calories will double also. Won't stop me from eating this luscious dessert, but it does make me mindful of the rest of my calorie intake for that day. Enjoy! You won't be sorry you made this dessert!

Egg in a Hole

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
This brought back a nice memory of my childhood. We called them eggs in a nest. I don't use bacon grease now (though my mother did when I was child), I use margarine. I also use a glass to make the hole and I use either rye bread or whole wheat. It just holds up better and has great taste and texture with the egg.

Homemade Chicken Parmigiana

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2012
As written, I would give this recipe 4 stars, but all it needs to elevate it to the five stars I did give it is to add some basil and oregano to the sauce as it simmers. It is far too bland without the addition of these classic and delicious herbs. Otherwise, this is a delicious recipe!

Strawberry Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2012
Wow! Nutritious and delicious!! Just one tip: If you have allergies to soy milk (or just don't like it), you can substitute Almond Milk (my absolute favorite!) and it is super delicious. Thanks so much for this recipe!!

Basic Baked Spaghetti

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2012
As written, this would actually be quite bland. But with a few modifications, this is easily a five star recipe. Just add chopped onions, minced, fresh garlic, basil and oregano (to taste) to the ground meat while your browning it to infuse the flavors. Once browned and drained, add sauce (you'll need more than the recipe calls for unless you like your spaghetti rather dry, I used two jars because my family loves to sop up extra sauce with garlic bread!) Also, I would suggest using mozarella cheese in place of cheddar, much more traditional and I believe more delicious! The original recipe is a good starting point, but you can (and should) be creative and make this your own signature dish by adding the things you know your family will enjoy like mushrooms, sausage, green peppers, etc.

Microwave Cracker Pizzas

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2012
Relax Angela, not every recipe has to be gourmet or take hours to prepare to be a recipe on this site. :-) This is a simple, easy snack for kids (and adults too!) and something I would not have thought of on my own. Thanks for posting this recipe - I'm going to make them for my kids later today. And I love another posters idea of putting carrot puree into the sauce to "veg it up"!!

Classic Tuna Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2012
Not too bad as written, but I would add some grated swiss cheese or maybe some colby/jack just to jazz it up a bit. Also, if you put 1 Tablespoon butter in your microwave to melt it and put it on for 30 seconds as the recipe states, you are going to have burnt butter. Instead melt slowly in five second intervals until almost melted, then let it sit for a minute to finish melting - and be sure to cover the butter, it will pop and splatter a bit.

Cookie Pralines

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2012
Yum, yum, yum! These are perfect as written. I didn't change a thing and they turned out perfect. I agree with another poster who says these are more like candy than a cookie, but really, that's splitting hairs. They are super delicious and make a great gift for pecan lovers when placed in a mason jar with a pretty bow around the lid at the holidays.

Fettuccine with Sweet Pepper-Cayenne Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2012
Five stars for sure, as written. But of course I had to add my own twist anyway. I also added some onions while sauteing the red bell peppers and garlic, then I added diced tomatoes right at the end, just to warm them, then threw in some parsley, oregano, basil and ground black pepper to taste, then proceeded with the dish as written. I love vegetarian meals, but this would also be great if you added some grilled chicken - yum!!

Delicious Egg Salad for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2012
Delicious as written! But if you want to step it up a notch and really wow your family, guests, whatever, crisp cook some bacon, drain it, let it cool, then crumble into your egg salad - scrumptious!!

Penne Pasta with Veggies

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2012
Excellent recipe! I leave out the prosciutto to keep it vegetarian and use only 1 Tablespoon butter. I love that this recipe is flexible - you can use whatever veggies you like or have on hand. But I do recommend cutting way back on the amount of butter stated in the recipe. It's way too much and will just add a lot of unnecessary calories to the finished product.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
Good basic recipe that needs tweeked just a bit if I may. I love onions, but not in this dish. Just not necessary. The cheese and potatoes are the stars, so let them shine alone. I add 16 ozs. of freshly shredded cheese - sharp cheddar works great. Also, a 400 degree oven is much too hot for this dish. 350 degrees is perfect. Cover the dish for the first hour then uncover and bake for 1/2 hour more. Stir thoroughly and you'll have perfect cheesy potatoes!

Blender Hollandaise Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
Wow, easy and delicious! We love having Eggs Benedict on the weekends, and this is my go to hollandaise sauce now. My only tweek is to cut back on the lemon juice, but that's just personal preference. Otherwise, I follow recipe to a T and it comes out perfect every single time with rave reviews from the family! And just a little safety note -- I do buy pasteurized eggs since the eggs aren't really cooked in this recipe. (Yes, you pour hot butter over the yolks, but I doubt it cooks them enough to count as 'cooked yolks'.) This is especially important if you have anyone who has a compromised immune system consuming the sauce.

Easy Devonshire Cream

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2012
Simply delicious and so very easy to make! I find it interesting that those who didn't rate the recipe very well either didn't even try it or did give it a go, but still complained that it isn't exactly like real Devonshire cream and clotted cream. That's nitpicking and it's not rating the taste of this recipe. I would ask that each of you simply try the recipe and rate it on it's own merits whether it's 'exactly' like the real deal or not. This recipe is meant to be an easy, delicious substitution, not an exact replica.

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2012
Excellent basic recipe! For those who are new to roasting veggies I suggest using this recipe as a guide, not a blueprint. In other words, if you don't like eggplant, don't put it in. Don't like rosemary and thyme? Leave them out and use, perhaps, basil instead. Simply adjust the recipe to your liking! I personally often use all the veggies stated in the recipe, but I also add broccoli and cauliflower. But I'll use whatever I have on hand that day and it always turns out great.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2012
If you follow the recipe exactly, you will end up with a delicious Alfredo Sauce. But this recipe is perfect for 'tweeking' to your liking too. I often add roasted garlic instead of powdered garlic and I use low fat cream cheese - scrumptious!! I also occasionally add some Italian spices like basil and oregano and sometimes parsley. This is just a super easy, super delicious sauce that you can customize to your family's tastes.
