Gingerbread Boys

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2003
While the taste and consistency were terrific, I had such a difficult time rolling the dough because it was so sticky. Also, the cutouts spread a little bit so they weren't as cute as another recipe. I really want to make these again and I'm hoping that someone can tell me what I can do to make the dough more cooperative. I would've added more flour, but the previous reviews kept complaining that they were having a hard time working in so much flour.

Butternut Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2003
Delicious! I used butter instead of margarine and instead of three whole eggs, I used 2 eggs plus two whites. Instead of vanilla wafer crumbs, I used leftover cake crumbs. The casserole looks beautiful and tastes wonderful.

Apricot Almond Rugalach

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2005
Delicious recipe and not too hard to make even though there are several steps. One thing that the recipe did not make clear is which nuts to use inside and which to use outside. I used the toasted ones inside since the baking would toast the untoasted ones on the outside. Also, 1/2 cup of jam is plenty for the filling. 20 minutes was the perfect baking time in my oven.

Cottage Cheese Loaf II

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2005
It seemed to me that the recipe asked for too much of the spices (a whole tablespoon of sage? garlic powder?) so I halved them. My husband and I were not crazy about the recipe, however, I took it for lunch cold the next day and I really liked it!

Lemon Pudding Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2005
My compliments! An easy (except for the zest part) recipe which came out deliciosly wonderful! I used soy milk instead of regular milk because I didn't want it to be dairy and it still came out so good!

Supreme Strawberry Topping

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2005
This recipe was easy and practical but the really good news is that it also worked with blueberries. In fact, it turned out even better with blueberries! I used the exact same measurements and directions for the blueberry version and the result was an delicious even more professional-looking topping than the strawberry one.

New York Cheesecake III

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2005
I make this recipe once a year for a special holiday and it is perfect everytime. I put it in a bath just to be cautious and am careful to use softened cream cheese so that I don't have to mix too much. These are the changes I made to the recipe: 1) I use sour cream in place of heavy cream and 2) I add a tablespoon of vanilla based on another review. Fantastic. One word of caution for the shortbread crust: do NOT use high gluten flour if you want the crust to be at its best.

Zucchini Patties

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2005
After reading all the wonderful reviews I feel badly to write one not quite so wonderful but I think it may help someone. The taste of the patty is delicious (what fried, cheese-filled food do you know of that isn't delicious?), however, the consistency of the batter was extremely hard to work with 'causing my patties to be less than appealing to look at. Perhaps I am at fault for using the small grater holes, but the recipe said "grated" and I grated them finely which may have been a problem.

G's Flank Steak Marinade

Reviewed: May 11, 2006
My husband really enjoyed this; I thought it was a little too salty which is why I gave it 4 stars. I will make it again but I will cut down on the soy sauce.

Avocado, Tomato and Mango Salsa

Reviewed: May 17, 2006
This salsa is delicious. We ate it like a salad and my husband said it would be great with chips. I left out the fresh cilantro because I don't like fresh cilantro. The only thing I will change next time is that I will use only two tablespoons of olive oil; the third spoonful was too much.

Mama Yev's Bread dip

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2006
I made this recipe and was heartily rewarded by everyone enjoying it and asking for the recipe. There was about one spoonful left after the meal and my daughter made sure that it would be saved for her.

Creole Seasoning Blend

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2006
Creole Seasoning Blend is a big hit at BBQs and reheated for an indoor dinner. It's a great investment because once you mix the blend, it can be used for so many easy, delicious chicken dinners.

Caribbean-Spiced Roast Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2006
Even though I removed all the skin before roasting the chicken, it still came out moist and juicy--I suppose due to the frequent basting. The flavor was delicious. I did find the basting every 20 minutes to be a little annoying since it tied me to the stove for an hour and a half. I will make this again despite the basting because it is good and a little exotic.

Saltine Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2006
These are excellent. If anyone is interested, the Passover version, made with matza, is even better! Just substitute matza for the saltines and break them into small pieces after they have cooled. I have also tried the recipe with graham crackers and it is not nearly as good. I've also used several kinds of nuts at one time and it was good.

Turkey Mercedes

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2006
Since I was making a turkey breast rather than a whole turkey, I used the servings calculator to cut the recipe by a quarter. We enjoyed the turkey, but I left off a star because I thought it was too lemony. Perhaps that was a result of tampering with the amounts. If I was to make it again, I would cut the lemon by half.

Curry Mango Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2006
I was unhappy with this recipe. Perhaps my hopes were too high because of all the great reviews and the exotic ingredients. I agreed with all the people that said that the rice didn't come out good; I didn't agree with their high ratings. The flavor was fine but it was certainly more work that it was worth and I wouldn't bother making it again even without the rice. I stumbled upon it by searching for Carribean recipes and I have to say that the Carribean Spiced Roast Chicken recipe is a much better investment of time for a Carribean taste with its rum and lime basting sauce.

Best Ever Meatloaf I

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2006
Yum! Moist and delicious. I forgot to buy tomato juice so I used the same amount of tomato sauce instead.

Three Bean Slow Burn Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2006
The reason I gave it only four stars is because I had to leave out the peppers--it would've been much too hot. It was spicey enough without them. (Thank you previous reviewers). I didn't add the taco seasoning mix but if I had some in the house, my curiosity would've made me add it to see how much more flavorful it could possibly have been. I cooked it in a crock pot for eight hours after browning the meat and served it with cornbread and chips.

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: May 25, 2007
The recipe didn't specify how much pasta to use. I guess I used too much because the sauce basically disappeared into the pasta. You should probably start out with a small amount of pasta with this sauce until you figure out on your own how much pasta you're able to coat with the sauce.

Baked Cheese Olives

Reviewed: May 29, 2008
Delicious! A unique appetizer. In my experience the ingredients ultimately have to be pressed together by hand in order for them to combine into a dough. Also, I couldn't understand how it could make 24 Cheese Olives if you use a tablespoon of dough for each olive. In that case, it will only make 10! I did use HUGE olives, but even if I had used the small ones, if I used a tablespoon of dough, I would have only had enough for 10.
