Eggnog from Scratch

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2013
Let me start off by saying I have always HATED eggnog in the carton. Everyone kept telling me I needed to try 'real' eggnog, so I decided to make my own. Wow! This was the best eggnog I've ever tried. Following other reviewers' suggestions, I used less sugar, warmed the milk with the eggs, and added a small amount of rum after pouring a glass (this way my daughter could enjoy it too). I might use even less sugar next time, since it is really sweet, but it is delicious. I can't wait to serve this at Christmas!!

Chef John's Perfect Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
Wow, these really are perfect mashed potatoes! Funny how I've always used these same ingredients, but with less than stellar results. Such a simple method. My potatoes turned out amazing, with no mealy mush in the pan. So glad to have found this!!

Eileen's Spicy Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2012
I'll give this 4 stars, because for those who love an authentic spicy gingerbread cookie, these are definitely spicy. The only modifications I made were using butter instead of margarine, and adding 1/2 cup brown sugar. The flavor was a little overwhelming for my taste, and did have a bit of an aftertaste. Next time I'll cut back on the cloves and molasses. However, they cooked great and were soft and chewy. Everyone liked them.

Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2011
This is the PERFECT cake frosting! I was looking for something a little softer than buttercream, yet sturdy enough to hold its shape. I love the flavor; the almond extract really gives it that special something. Following another reviewer's suggestion, I beat the heavy cream first (in a chilled bowl) to form stiff peaks, then added it to the other mixed ingredients. I paired this with the White Almond Wedding Cake recipe, and it is to die for!!

White Almond Wedding Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2011
This cake is fantastic!! Following a reviewer's suggestion, I used Greek yogurt instead of sour cream; everything else I left the same. Love the touch of almond flavoring. I made these cupcakes for a coworker's birthday, and everybody loved them! I've already forwarded the recipe to 5 people who requested it. This is my new go-to recipe for white cake!!

Vanilla - Chocolate Powdered Sugar Frosting

Reviewed: May 4, 2011
This frosting is delicious! I followed other reviewers' suggestions and used 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder. Added milk by the teaspoon until it was the consistency I wanted. Turned out perfect! This was enough frosting for about 21 cupcakes, so I would double the recipe if frosting a layer cake. Will definitely use this recipe from now on!

English Trifle to Die For

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
I made this for the first time for Easter and it was a HUGE hit! I took some other reviewers' advice and added vanilla to the custard, and vanilla & sugar to the whipping cream. I'm not sure if I cooked the custard long enough, since it was a bit runny (will add a little cornstarch w/ milk next time). I put sliced strawberries in one layer, and bananas & kiwis in the next layer. Even though it was a little "soupy", it still tasted DELICIOUS and everybody loved it!

Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
Sooo good! I used 2 lbs. of frozen meatballs from Costco (I think they were chicken teriyaki meatballs), along with the chili sauce, grape jelly & lemon juice. I made them for our holiday potluck at work, and they went FAST! No leftover meatballs for us.

Christmas Breakfast Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
Great recipe! I followed the advice of a few reviewers and increased it to 6 eggs, and used 1 cup of half & half instead of 2 cups milk. Couldn't find the Jimmy Dean maple sausage, so I used regular JD sausage. Also sprinkled extra cheese on top. This tasted even better the day after I baked it! Will definitely make this for Christmas breakfast again.

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
Loved this bread! I substituted 1 c of wheat flour for 1 c of the flour, and only used a few tablespoons of the butter/buttermilk mixture to brush on top. Also sprinkled some oats on top before baking. This is a great tasting Irish soda bread. I tried another recipe first, but it was really bland. This one is just right!

German Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2009
This cake is fantastic! I didn't make any changes to the recipe, and I thought it turned out perfect. I like how the top of the cake has a slight crunch to it. I also sprinkled a dusting of powdered sugar on top. Everybody loved it!!

Floating Island Punch

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
This was the best punch ever! I also made modifications based on other users' reviews. I omitted the sugar water & carbonated water, substituted pink lemonade concentrate & raspberry punch concentrate, used raspberry sherbet instead of orange, and used 2 liters of ginger ale. I think the raspberry flavor, along with the cherry juice, is what makes this punch so great. Everybody loved it! This was my first ever attempt at making punch for a party, and I'll definitely make it from now on.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2008
Very tasty! I thought the celery salt was a little overbearing, so I used less the next time I made it & it was perfect. I also just put the topping on the fish & baked it, rather than the broil method. Great recipe, I've been making it every week!

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2008
This is fantastic!! My first attempt at making risotto, and it turned out great. It is very creamy and full of flavor. I don't usually like mushrooms, but they were so good in this recipe that I didn't even pick them out. The only thing that was difficult was finding a store that sold Arborio rice! Everyone loved it & I've made it 3 times in the last month. Thanks for this wonderful recipe!!

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2007
Great recipe! I've never had shepherd's pie, so this was a first. I took the suggestions of some other posters (such as adding garlic & worcestershire sauce to the meat, and adding brown gravy mix). I also used a package of frozen peas instead of carrots. My husband LOVED this & could not stop eating! I like how you can vary the recipe & put pretty much whatever you want in. Will definitely make again!

Chinese Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2006
Great recipe! Didn't have to change a thing. My husband loved it, especially the walnuts (most salads have almonds or peanuts). I think we'll be making this every week!

Dawn's Candied Walnuts

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2003
These are delicious!!! Not only are they great by themselves, but I also put them in salad w/ raspberry vinaigrette dressing. I will definitely make them at Christmas to share with my family & friends! Even if you aren't a nut lover, you will love these because they are more like a candy.

Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2003
This is the best raspberry vinaigrette ever, and it's so simple! The 2nd time I made it, I used Spelnda instead of sugar, and it was still great. I use it on a spring mix with carmelized walnuts. Nobody can get enough of it!!
