Very Easy Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2006
I can't understand the rave reviews this one received. I felt like I ruined a good bowl of fresh fruit by mixing in alot of sweet gooey syrup!! Not one compliment (or even any kinda of comment) at a bbq full of people!!!Sorry, but I'd rather mixed together lots of fresh fruit and let it make it's own juice!

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.

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!

Apple Hermits

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2003
These cookies are delicious-quite a compliment coming from a devout chocolate lover! Because I am not wild about cloves, I did cut the amount called for in the recipe by half-and I used dark brown sugar. My family loved them!A wonderful cookie for the fall season! Can't wait to make them again!

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!

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2003
Very good recipe-one word of caution...if you should use cooking marsala instead of straight marsala, make sure you cut the salt out of the ingredients, as cooking marsala contains salt. I didn't have Sherry so I used a little chicken broth, and it was very good!

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!

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!

Easiest Lemony Pound Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2003
Absolutely terrific! I followed the recipe as written, but used the whole box of lemon pudding-it was great!One word of caution-do not use a cake mix that already has pudding in it-the cake was good while warm, but then became very "heavy". Recipe as written is great!

Creamy Italian White Bean Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2005
Sorry, but I did not care for this soup at all.When I read the recipe I thought it sounded bland, but because of the reviews I thought I would try it anyway. I added two boullion cubes and extra garlic, but I just don't think it was worth the effort.To those of you who did like it, I suggest adding some ditalini or other small macaroni to make it heartier.

Texas Ranch Potato Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2005
Very good...I used half mayo and half sour cream. I also used the real bacon bits instead of frying bacon. My only negative comment is that I found it to be quite salty-but the flavors were delicious-and my husband loved it! :^)

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!

Reviewed: May 8, 2007
Give credit where it's due...this recipe has been on the Eagle Brand Sweetend Condensed Milk label since I was a child...and I'm 55 now!! I have always made these for Christmas...and a few times during the year! Always a favorite :^)

Oatmeal Cherry Walnut Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2003
Very good cookies-stay nice and soft and chewy-I used candied cherries because I could not find dried, and that made them a little too sweet. I will continue the search for dried cherries-and definitly add them to my Christmas cookie list!

Black Bottom Cupcakes I

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2003
I've been making these cupcakes for over 20 years-I didn't know that the recipe was "out there"! These were always great stand-by's when I needed something to bake, but had no eggs...only difference is I whipped the cream cheese until fluffy and used regular vinegar,

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!

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!

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.
