Meat and Spinach Ravioli Filling

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2010
This is just like my Italian grandmother's recipe. The only difference is to add a dash of nutmeg, and use 2 more eggs and omit the olive oil. She also used fresh garlic and a half an onion. It's a Christmas day tradition!

Marshmallow Fondant

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
Love it!! I did not add the butter of the vanilla, I used imitation almond extract instead. If it seems too dry and is cracking, just add shortening!!!

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2010
This was FANTASTIC!! It's a great base recipe to make any flavor biscotti you want! A great variation is upping the almond extract to 2 tsps., adding 1/4 tsp. cinnamon, and adding 1 cup of sliced almonds omitting the cranberries and pistachio nuts. Then you could drizzle with milk and white chocolate and sprinkle with crushed almonds!! HINTS: 1) my dough was not workable at all!! I just spooned it onto the parchment lined pan and kinda molded it from there. 2) left my loaf in for 30 minutes and let cool with a dishtowel on top for 15 minutes and had no cracking problems. 3) used a large heavy knife, not serrated, and pressed down slowly. 4) cut my biscotti about 6 inches long and 1 inch wide and they had to dry in the oven for an hour at 275 flipping every 10 minutes.

Ham, Potato, and Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
Here is what I did and it came out AWESOME! I put 6 cups water in a stock pot then added 3 tbsp onion powder, 1 tsp. dried parsley, 1/8 tsp black pepper, 2 cups fully cooked chopped ham, 6 cubed medium potatoes. I cooked it about 20 minutes or until almost all the water evaporated and most of the potatoes were mushy. I then stirred in 1/2 cup of cream and a 1/2 cup of whole milk with 1 1/2 pounds of Velveeta cheese until melted. I made sure it was heated through and served with Double Quick Dinner Rolls from this site!! YUM!

Ham and Broccoli Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2010
This recipe was great! I changed it though - I used 16 oz of Garden Rotini; I added 2 cups of Velveta to the Alfredo instead of the shredded cheese; I sauteed the ham in olive oil with half an onion chopped, 2 cloves of garlic and a 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning; I used a 12oz bag of microwave in the bag Broccoli. I also didn't bake it, I just threw all the cooked items in a pot!

Hummus III

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
Good base recipe. I didn't have tahini so I made my own: 4 tbsp toasted sesame seeds, 1 tsp. sesame oil, 1/2 tsp. salt and 2 tbsp water blended to form a paste. I used all of that and 1-16 oz can garbanzo beans, 1 tbsp olive oil, smidgen cumin, smidgen paprika, a couple dashes black pepper, 1 large garlic clove, 1 tbsp lemon and 2 tbsp. garbanzo bean juice and blended it all up! Way better than store bought! And so much cheaper too!

Best Toffee Ever - Super Easy

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
I made this twice. The first time I burnt it. The next batch I brought to 300 degrees over medium heat. I removed it from the heat and stirred until it combined (it had separated), which took several minutes. Then I poured onto a foil lined cookie sheet. It came out pretty good.

Creamy Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2010
The best split pea soup ever! Only changes I made were 2 carrots instead of celery and I used a 1/2 a cup of cream instead of a full cup. I also only blended half the soup and left the other half as is to give it more texture. You won't be disappointed with this one!

Perfect Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
I really didn't like this pie. Followed the recipe exactly. It came out leathery, not creamy like traditional pumpkin pie. Stick with Libby's recipe!UPDATE: I let it sit in the fridge overnight and it was MUCH better. Everyone really liked it.
