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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Italian Anisette Cookies

Reviewed: May 27, 2009
Scrumptious! I don't like licorice flavor, so I used almond extract instead. I'm thinking of trying these again with lemon extract. I found these cookies to be easy to make and they use oil not margarine or butter which is another plus.

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.

Amazingly Delicious Whole-Grain Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2012
I used only whole wheat pastry flour and the recipe came out wonderfully. I used coffee granules instead of coffee extract; those were the only changes I made to the recipe. My one piece of advice would be to freeze the brownie for an hour before cutting it so the pieces will cut more cleanly. I used parchment paper so I was able to lift the brownie out of the pan very easily before freezing and cutting. I would be interested to know what the benefit of applesauce and buttermilk are to this recipe. Perhaps less fat is required because of them?

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!

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.

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.

Delicious Matzo Candy

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
I am familiar with this recipe and have made it every Passover for the last several years. It is delicious by itself or served with vanilla ice cream.

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.

Easy Homemade Pastrami

Reviewed: May 31, 2012
I love reviewing recipes that I have tried. This one is difficult for me. Even though it came out delicious and everyone including the little grandchildren loved it and asked for more and more, it did not really come out like the one in Chef John's video. The instructions were easy to follow. There was just one thing I did differently. I could not bring myself to use 1/4 cup of pepper for the rub and therefore I adjusted the measurements of the other rub ingredients accordingly. The pastrami roast came out delicious and so tender. It was brown like a brisket, not red like a pastrami! That was not a problem for my family, but it made it a little difficult to review since it is supposed to be pastrami!

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.

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.

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!

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.
