Toffee Crunch Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
Yummy cookies! 2 things: How did the first reviewer only end up with 14 cookies? Unless they were giant cookies? I had enough for 2 batches. (I also make my cookies small). Other thing is, I used Heath bits and omitted the pecans.. baked for 12 minutes because I prefer softer cookies, and they're still pretty chewy.. Not flat, either. Overall, I think these are amazing!

Spinach and Tortellini Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
This was easy to prepare and very tasty! I used fresh spinach instead of frozen spinach and cooked it ever-so-slightly (added the spinach to the tortellini in the last minute that it was cooking and drained spinach + pasta together). I must not have rinsed it with cold enough water or for long enough, because the cheese melted slightly when combining the ingredients. It wasn't bad, but I think I might add the parmesan last or sprinkle it onto the finished plate next time.

Curried Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
I've made this recipe twice now, both times with fantastic results. I made a few changes, though. First, I tripled the amount of curry powder following a previous user's recommendations. Second, I realized I didn't have enough chicken broth (only 1 cup) the second time I made this and didn't want to go to the store just for that. Instead, I used the 1 cup of broth, added 2 cups of water and then increased the salt to 1 teaspoonful. As for the almonds, I set my oven to 300 degrees F (arbitrarily), spread 1/2 cup of slivered almonds on a baking sheet, and stuck them in for about 10-15 minutes, while the rice was simmering. After the 10-15 minutes, I turned the oven off but left the almonds inside until the rice was done simmering. They were so crunchy and warm :). Btw, I didn't really taste too much of a difference between the first result and second result, despite the difference in amount of chicken broth used. Thanks for the recipe!!

Best Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2010
I've tried at least 2 or 3 different recipes for tuna casserole - none were nearly as good as this! Following one of the reviewer suggestions, I used 3 cans of soup instead of 2, and added 1/2 c of skim milk. This casserole is excellent!!
