Fried Irish Cabbage with Bacon

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2015
Saute chopped onions with the cabbage and when everything is soft, mix it,along with the bacon,into mashed potatoes. That dish is called Colcannon and served with melted butter in a well you make on top of the potatoes! I make that every St Pat's Day along with Corned Beef Wellington!

Mom's Italian Beef Barley Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2015
I've made this recipe many times now-still love it! I add carrots so that it's a complete meal! Sometimes towards the end I add handfuls of baby spinach. Real comfort food. Thank you for a simple, delicious recipe!

My-Hop Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2014
I found these pancakes to be bland. The first time I made them I made the recipe as written. The second time, I added some malt (which is what I always add to my pancakes). Still bland. I ended up sprinkling them wih cinnamon sugar just to add flavor. Not a terrible recipe, just "ok".

Oven Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2012
Good recipe. My only criticism is that is is way too salty for my taste. I will definitely make it again, using un salted butter plus the salt called for in the recipe. I can always add more salt when it's on my plate if I want it!

Slow Cooker Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2011
Good, easy recipe, however I prefer the crispy skin from baking the potatoes-just my personal preference. Note to prior reviewer "CB"- you'll read plenty about the health benefits of Canola Oil,but FYI: There is no such thing as a "Canola Plant"...so know that Canola oil is processed from rapeseed plants, much the same way margerine is processed. Remember when they said margerine was better for you than butter? I didnt buy that logic then either and now we know that's not true! Olive Oil is healthier. Go natural.

Italian Baked Cannelloni

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2011
Crepes are made from a batter spread thin in a hot skillet, then rolled and filled with anything from fruit to ricotta. Manicotti is a pasta. Years ago in Italy they made manicotti in a crepe fashion, but here manicotti and cannelloni are both pasta. Cannelloni is usually meat filled, while manicotti is cheese filled.I know because I work for an Italian food distributor, married Italian and my Italian mother in law lives with us!

Baked Ziti Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
Sorry...I found it bland and dry, dry, dry.... Next time I will brown some sausage meat and add it to the layers, and double the sauce and ricotta cheese filling. Also add garlic, salt & pepper.

Italian Love Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
I followed the advice of a previous person and used yellow cake mix and added mini choco chips to the ricotta. I made it this way because my Italian Mother In Law & my husband aren't big on chocolate. They thought it was very good! I will try it another time using marble or chocolate cake mix. This one is a keeper! Thanks for a great recipe!

Cousin David's Slow Cooker Brisket

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
I didn't think it was as good as others have rated it-it was just o.k. I gave it 3 stars for ease of preperation, but I thought it was too salty overall...

Five Ingredient Ice Cream

Reviewed: May 25, 2009
I had a similar recipe 20 years ago for Oreo Ice Cream, but lost it when we moved. I made the "Mint Chocolate Chip" version of this ice cream today. The result was perfect! Creamy, not at all whipped cream tasting, and not at all hard! I scraped it up after two hours (it was almost set at that point) and put it back in the freezer. Two hours later I scopped it into 2 plastic quart containers with tight lids. I can't wait to experiment-the possibilities are endless, just by changing the flavor of extracts and adding whatever you crave! Thanks for a great recipe!

Clark Gable Pancakes

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
Good basic recipe-I loved how they were light and had crisp edges. On the downside, I thought they lacked flavor. I will make them again, but substitute melted butter for the oil, and maybe add cinnamon.

Quick and Easy Sauteed Spinach

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2009
This has been around for years. It is the basis of most Italian veggie recipes, especially Brocoli Rabe. I use Olive Oil and lots of sliced garlic. I add cannellini beans and saute all for 2 minutes. Then I add a whole bag of fresh bay spinach leaves and toss. Let simmer until spinach is wilted.

Cake Mix Cookies IV

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
This recipe came about many years ago, when Funfetti Cake Mix first came out. My kids were little then (They're in their twenties now!!!) and this recipe was a lifesaver-when their friends came to play at our house I was always turning out fresh baked cookies-their Moms never suspected how easy it was!!! I'm happy to see it making the rounds again!

Easy Fried Spinach

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2008
This is a pretty basic recipe-I've been making it for years! Here are some tips: DO NOT let the garlic burn-it will be bitter.(If you have the time-I usually don't- use roasted garlic for GREAT flavor!)For a healthy alternative, use Olive Oil instead of canola oil-natural is always! (Ever hear of a "canola plant"?? Of course not!!) I love to add cannellini beans to the garlic & oil before adding the spinach. You can also add small pasta (like ditalini). Sometime we use broccoli or/and cauliflower instead. We have variations once a week for our "meatless" meal!

Self-Filled Cupcakes I

Bowties and Broccoli

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2008
This is a standard Italian dish...I like to cook the broccoli in with the pasta for the last 5 mins...then drain. I use closer to 8 cloves of garlic, saute in oil, add pasta water and 1/2 cup of chicken broth..simmer so flavors meld.Mix all together and add plenty of grated cheese and fresh ground pepper. Make it into a meal by adding shrimp or Italian sausage to the garlic and oil, then combine everything! Mangia!

Pan-Fried Asparagus

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2008
This is a standard recipe...I've used it for many years-Oil, litlle butter, garlic, salt & pepper..and any vegetable-my favorite is spinach. Make sure you par-boil and harder veggies you use (carrots, potatoes, etc.) Green beans also work well with this cooking method.

Tomato Barley Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2008
I thought the recipe as written was bland, but a good base to add to. I sauted garlic and sausage meat and added that to the soup along with some grated cheese. I may try it again and use beef pieces to make a beef barley soup.Four stars for a good "base" soup!
