Cranberry Orange Almond Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2004
A great recipe for cranberry orange bread. It came out perfectly, and the spices were just right. Used pecans, as I had no almonds; it was delicious, but I'll be it's even better with almonds. Thanks so much.

Lisa's Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2004
I usually make a really good chocolate cake from scratch, but ever since I've made this, people request it over my own! I have never received so many compliments on a cake in my life. I use more chocolate chips in the batter (almost double), and I frost it with chocolate buttercream frosting. An intensely wonderful chocolate experience. The next time I make it, I'm going to try substituting strong coffee for the water. Mocha lovers, watch out!! Thanks for the recipe.

Easy Salmon

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2004
Great recipe. This was my first time cooking salmon, and my whole family was very pleased with the results. I did sprinkle some shredded cheddar on the top and let it brown in the oven. I was thrilled with how easy this was to make. It's foolproof. Thanks for the recipe.

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2004
What a wonderful recipe for my favorite chicken dish! One thing is missing, however: garlic. The first time I made it I did not use any, and the dish was a bit timid. Nex time, I added a couple of cloves of crushed garlic about halfway through cooking the chicken; it made a huge difference in the flavor. One other addition: try topping the chicken with some deli hot ham chopped up a bit. (And don't cheap out on the brand of wine--kitchen brands don't do it justice!) A real restaurant quality dish! Thanks for the recipe.

Cream of Broccoli Soup I

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2003
This was my first try at Cream of Broccoli Soup, and this recipe was perfect--easy to prepare, thick, and delicious. Try serving the soup in individual heat-proof soup bowls, topped with generous portions of cheddar, and let the bowls sit under the broiler just until the cheese browns a bit. Worked great for me. Thanks for a fine recipe.***AMENDMENT: I just bought an immersion blender, and, believe me, it cut the prep time of this recipe in half!! No more slopping the hot broccoli into the blender. Take my advice--get yourself an immersion blender if you don't already have one; what a great appliance!

Spicy Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2003
I had a salad similar to this at a party, and I had to find a recipe for it! This one is it! Such a different combination of flavors, making for a memorable, distinctive salad. Thanks so much for posting it!

Baked Corn I

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2003
I'd never had baked corn or spoonbread before, and wanted something to serve with chili(Best Bean Chili--this site--wonderful!). This was a perfect choice--like corn bread, only much more moist. (I used only half the suggested amount of butter.) And the whole kernel corn was a nice, sweet surprise. Crumble some on top of a bowl of hot chili!

Bud's Potato Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2003
What a great potato salad recipe--I didn't change a thing. I've made it several times, and it's the only recipe I'll use from now on. The hot sugar/vinegar marinade is what makes it great. And it makes a ton! I may never make the straight mayo/hard-boiled egg variety again. Thanks for sharing.

Best Bean Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2003
This is the best chili I have ever had. The only change I made was to use half ground beef and half finely diced stew beef in the recipe. The cocoa and brown sugar gave it a very daring flavor, which everyone loved. I served it with Rhonda's Spoonbread recipe, also found on this site. Thanks so much for a winner of a meal, allrecipes!!
