Greek Lemon Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2010
This soup hit the spot and is great when you have to feed a family who is suffering with colds. I added a cup of orzo instead of rice and used half the eggyolks. I made the roux with butter instead of margarine because that's what I had. We used fresh lemons and parsley from our yard. Yummy.

Guacamole

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
This recipe was a good start. I think my additions made it really delicious. I used half of the onion because I find that it overpoweres the other flavors. I added a finely chopped seeded jalapeno pepper instead of the cayenne pepper. I also seeded the tomatoes before chopping. That way the guacamole doesn't get too soupy. I used Lawry's seasoned salt instead of regualr salt. Mix all ingredients except for avocado. (If the avo is ripe enough you don't need to chop it - just scoup it out.) Then add ripe/soft avocado last and keep stirring and mashing until desired consistency. I have tried chopping the ingredients in the food processor a few times but it never tastes as good as chopping everything by hand. I don't know why. Yummy!

Fluffy Canadian Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
My husband is the one who found this recipe. He has been trying to cut back on sugar in his diet and this recipe didn't have any in it, so he tried it out, with great results. The whole family loved these pan cakes. They were light and fluffy with no baking powder bitterness. He did add a little vanilla to the mix. We have also tried them with rice milk instead of the milk as a non-dairy alternative. We have yet to be disappointed. After you pour the batter into the pan add some berries, or apple or banana slices before you flip them. Yummy. Of course, the kids also eat them plain, topped with maple or fruit syrup, peanut butter, or Nutella. I haven't tried this yet, but because they have no sugar you can also top them with savory foods. No we're getting creative!

Biscotti Toscani

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2006
These came out great! I didn't have any orange zest and put in a little triple sec instead. They had good texture, nice mild flavor: perfect for dipping into coffee. I'll try with orange zest next time. Maybe it'll be a 5 star then. Thanks.

This was such an easy and fast recipe and the results were simply DELICIOUS! I have made this recipe a few times and the only thing I add is some fresh cilantro if I have it in the house. Thanks.

Yummy! The batter looked very runny but came out perfect and very moist after baking.I made two loaves and about 24 mini muffins. I reduced sugar to 2 cups, added 1 ts unsweetened cocoa powder and a TBS dark rum.

Ciabatta

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2005
I made Ciabatta rolls with this recipe. They had a good airy texture and a crispy crust. The recipe made only 5 of them. This was much too much work for some simple rolls. Next time I will drive to Costco and buy a whole dozen and save my precious time to do something else.

Bake Sale Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2005
These alterations make this a five star recipe, in my opinion. I like my lemon bars tart, not sickeningly sweet. Here's what I do: Decrease temp to 350 degrees. Leave crust the same, put in 9 x 13 enameled metal pan. Bake 15 min. For filling, double flour and eggs, use 1 C lemon juice and 1 3/4 C sugar. Add 3 drops yellow food coloring. Bake 20 min.

Vienna Schnitzel

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2005
I just came across this recipe and had to review it. I am from Germany and have made this very same recipe for many, many years. Before I flour the meat I genereously sprinkle with pepper and a little salt instead of seasoning the egg mixture. I pan fry the Schnitzel in a skillet with quite a bit of oil. Sit the finished Schnitzel on a paper towel to drain off some of the fat. I make it with pork chops, veal scallopini and I also love making it with thinly pounded chicken breasts. My three year old daughter LOVES!!!! this recipe - so does everyone else. There are no exotic flavors - just pure comfort food.

Artichoke Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2005
Ok, I made this dip and took it to a BBQ as an appetizer. It was gone in no time and everybody wanted the recipe! I had read a lot of the previous reviews and so decided to make some modifications to the recipe: I used almost 16 oz of frozen spinach and just a little more than half the cream cheese and sour cream. I also sauteed 2 heaping Teaspoons of crushed garlic in the butter before adding the spinach and artichokes to the saucepan. I added salt and lots of pepper. The dip turned out nice and chunky and had a lot of flavor - can anybody say 'garlic'???. I served it warm with some sliced french bread. This will be my new favorite!

N'Awlins Stuffed Bell Peppers

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2004
I loved this recipe so much I will make it for company next time. It is definetely going to become part of my family's cookbook. I used 6oz instead of 16oz of dry seasoned stuffing mix. I assumed it was a print error since stuffing comes in 6oz or 12oz packages not 16oz. Next time I will add some liquid to it to make it more moist. I used Emeril Lagasse's Essence recipe for the creole seasoning (you can find that on his website). The recipe had a lot of flavor and I loved it just the way it came out. But if you like things spicy you should add a little more Creole seasoning or spice it up some other way.

Lemon Sugar Tea Cookies

Reviewed: May 29, 2004
I made these lemon cookies the other day. They came out alright. I used 'real lemon' lemon juice and doubled the amount. I also added some lemon zest. Instead of rolling them in sugar I made a 1 1/4 inch diameter loaf and cut off half-inch sections. When the cookies were baked I put on icing made of beaten eggwhite, lemon juice and powdered sugar. It sounds pretty lemony but they really weren't. Next time I will add some more lemon juice in the cookie as well as the icing.

Spanish Rice II

Reviewed: May 2, 2004
I loved this recipe. As always I slightly modified it according to what ingredients I found in my house at the time. I used red bell pepper instead of the green and chicken broth instead of the water. Because of the broth I didn't add extra salt. I had chopped, canned tomatoes and a can of diced green chilis. I used half the can of green chilis. Since I shared the dish with our neighbors who don't eat spicy food I didn't add any chili powder. In the end I had to add just a little more liquid. All in all I used a whole can of chicken broth and one can of water. The rice had a lot of flavor. Next time we will make it a little more spicy for us. Thanks for the great recipe.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2003
I made this recipe for Christmas dinner and it was delicious and fast to make. I used our food processor to slice the potatoes and onions (what would I do without it?). I used grated Cheddar/Jack Cheese and crumbled some leftover bacon from breakfast into the potatoes. The cheese sauce was a little bland for my taste. It needed a little something, so I added some nutmeg which made a big difference. Next time I will experiment with different cheeses. Taking the foil off earlier to brown the top was a good idea.

Simple Baked Apples

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2003
I was planning on making whole baked apples for Christmas this year but decided on this recipe because it sounded delicious and easy to make. IT WAS!!! I scaled the recipe to serve 20. I also added a package of craisins after reading the other reviews (good idea) and added a crumb topping made of equal parts flour and white sugar and enough butter to make the dough stick enough to make crumbs (plus a hint of cinnamon). I am planning on making this again soon.

Hot Buttered Rum Mix

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2003
I thought this recipe looked awesome, so I served it at Christmas to our family. Too be honest it was much too sweet and needed a little more rum. I could not drink a full cup of this or diabetes would have set in! So next time I will reduce the powerdered sugar by AT LEAST half if not more. I did put the frozen mixture in some hot unsweetened cocoa and it was great!

Irish Lamb Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2003
This stew was soooo good! It came out so tender that my 11 month old daughter could eat it without molars and without me having to cut everything into smaller pieces. It just dissolves in your mouth. I have to admit that I used about half the amount of bacon in this recipe.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2003
My husband is on a non-dairy diet. I replaced the butter in this recipe with non-dairy margarine from Trader Joes and the result was unbelievably delicious. This will be the only brownie recipe I'll make in future! Thanks!

Best Carrot Cake Ever

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2003
I loved how moist and delicious the cake came out. I made half the recipe and baked it in a bundt pan. I didn't even add frosting. It was perfect.
