JL's Cognac Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2003
This recipe was very tasty and easy. It takes patience to ensure the right consistency of the cream (not enough time makes it runny as mentioned by another cook) but it is very yummy when made right! I am looking forward to making this recipe again for my friends! UPDATE: I made this again and everyone complained that the cognac over powered the chicken. The consistency of the sauce was just right but I guess I won't make this one again.

Garlic Salmon

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2003
I have made this recipe more than once and it is an easy, low fat treat. I always use fresh garlic, dried dill (which I rub together to release the flavors) and lemon juice since I always have those ingredients on hand. However, I have made it with green as well as regular white onions but I recommend using the green onions for taste and presentation. I usually make it in my toaster oven since I cook for one. I highly recommend this recipe!

Antipasto Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2003
I made this recipe several times for a group of Army men and the key to success is using a tasty, high quality balsamic vinegar. I prefer to make it the night before and allow it to cool in the refrigerator overnight so it is cold, not warm. I also adjust the dressing the next day to ensure a moist, tasty salad. Each time I make this salad someone mentions how much they like the cheese which I buy in bulk at Sam's club. Enjoy!

Artichoke Spinach Spread in Wonton Baskets

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2004
Very good. Colorful and tasty but making the "basket" was difficult. The first pan I used was not deep enough (Chicago) so they ended up as saucers. The second pan was deeper (Wilton) and worked out better but I would probably buy the premade baskets next time.

Artichoke Spread

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2004
Excellent! The dill adds to the dip versus the normal garlic/artichoke dip taste. In lieu of the garlic, I used Tastefully Simple Garlic Garlic. I also did not use the food processer based upon the recommendation of other cooks. I served it with Nonni's Garlic Parmesan Panetinis. Everyone loved it! I will make it again!

Honey Bun Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2004
I made this for my family and they liked it but it is very sweet. It is easy to make but too sweet for me. UPDATE: I made this for Army Soldiers and they loved it. I made it according to the directions; in a cake pan but forgot the icing. The Soldiers loved it but agreed the icing would have been too much.

Pet Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2004
My dog has food allergies so I make all of her treats. This are by far the easiest and quickest to make. I used a vegetable baby food and she loved them. Thanks for the great recipe!

Grilled Asparagus

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2004
The recipe without modifications is definitely worth only three stars. It is VERY bland. But, if you add a clove of fresh, crushed garlic, salt, and freshly ground pepper, it is worth five stars. Light, tasty, and satisfying. Enjoy!

Margarita Party Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2004
I made three desserts for a Mexican themed party and this was a huge hit! If you prefer sweet and salty tastes, stick to the pretzel crust. Some of the guests agreed that a graham cracker crust would work well too but the pie would not have that interesting salty balance. Everyone thought the alcohol was just right (I used Jose Cuervo) however, I bought orange flavored triple sec not knowing that there is a difference between orange liquer and triple sec. I will definitely make this again. It is so good and so easy!

Apple Enchilada Dessert

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2004
I made this for a Mexican-theme party. The guests said the dessert was quite tasty however I used only half the syrup based upon previous reviews. I took the extra syrup along with the dessert so guests could more if they desired. If I make this again, I will add cornstarch to thicken the syrup or only used half like I did this time and take the rest with me. This is such a quick and easy dessert.

Yummy Roll Ups

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2004
I love this recipe. The softer the cream cheese the better. Secure with a toothpick and put in the refrigerator to regain the firmness if you desire. I have received so many compliments--whenever I make this inexpensive appetizer!

Dilly Rye Boat Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2006
I have received mixed reviews on this recipe. My parents think it is too salty but I love it. I couldn't find the Beau seasoning so I replaced it with 1 Tbsp. minced dried onion flakes and 1 Tbsp. parsley. I also decreased the dill to 1 teaspoon. I prefer salty foods over sweets so I love it and usually triple the recipe so I can have leftovers. I usually let the chipped beef season the dip overnight but you can enjoy it in only a few hours.

Classic Reuben Sandwich

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2006
This recipe is easy, simple, and soooo tasty! I substituted provolone cheese for the swiss cheese and followed the instructions but you really do not need to measure out all of the ingredients. You won't be disappointed!

The Real Reuben

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2006
You are really missing out on a great recipe if you don't try Pam Anderson's Classic Reuben Sandwich. You really need to use a skillet to get everything heated just right. The ingredients are similar but the cooking techinique makes a HUGE difference.

Cucumber Sandwiches III

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2006
Always a hit at any event! I use a packet of Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix in lieu of the italian packet and I like to add 1/4 cup of sour cream. You need to let the ingredients season overnight for a smoother, more powerful flavor. I have used the dill weed or lemon pepper on top of the cucumbers and have received positive reviews on both choices. Enjoy!

Asian Avocado

Reviewed: May 7, 2006
A fast, simple way to enjoy an avocado with little preparation and only a few ingredients. It is a definite keeper. I used the low sodium soy sauce and loved it. Thanks Josie!

Adrienne's Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: May 10, 2006
I followed PANCAKEONE's recommendation. I used 1/2 c. vinegar, 1/4 c. Splenda (instead of sugar), and 1/4 c. water. Since I used Splenda, I did not boil the sauce. I also used four cucumbers, a little red onion, and the dill. I really enjoyed this recipe.

Microwave Asparagus Salad

Reviewed: May 19, 2006
I love the simplicity of microwaving the asparagus. I microwaved the asparagus (snapped into thirds) and a little bit of diced red onion. I made the dressing as directed. I loved it. The only reason why I gave it four stars versus five was I do not think you need to serve it over greens. A nice touch but not required. I loved it!

Slow Cooker Lancaster County Pork and Sauerkraut

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2007
I felt like I was back in PA for the New Year. Thanks for the great recipe! I loved the flavor of the caraway seeds and used two Granny Smith apples and 2 T. brown sugar as previously recommended. I also added dumplings on top during the last few minutes of cooking... 1 1/3 c. flour, 1/2 t. salt (cannot omit), 2 t. baking powder, 1 egg, and 1/2 c. milk. You cannot have sauerkraut without dumplings in PA. Most tender pork roast I have ever cooked and enjoyed!

Easy Pork and Sauerkraut

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2007
I omitted the beer and there was enough juices with the sauerkraut. I would drain the kraut if I used the beer otherwise it would be too soupy. The dill and garlic taste great. I really enjoyed this simple recipe.
