Barley and Mushrooms with Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2002
This is a really great recipe- the ultimate comfort food when it's cold outside. Next time I will sub some of the broth with white wine. I exchanged celery for water chestnuts b/c I don't care for celery and b/c I wanted the extra crunch factor. Be sure to watch the pot, tho. Mine was done in less than 45 min and almost got stuck to the bottom!

Italian Cream Cake II

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2005
Holy banana- this cake was amazing! It turned out perfect!!! And no one could believe I made it! I used parchment paper in the bottom of the pans instead of greasing and flouring. I used chopped nuts (pecans) to cover the outside edge over the frosting. Then I toasted some coconut and put it on top and sliced about 4 maraschino cherries and put the halves randomly on the top of the coconut. It looked like something from a magazine! =)

Chicken Pot Pie VIII

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2006
This was a really good recipe! I used shortening in the dough rather than lard (ew!)- and it really did turn out flaky. I thought potatoes in the mixture would be weird, and it was a little bit, but I would make this again. The first step I took for the filling was to saute the onions, carrot, celery and potatoes with the lid on and a sprig of rosemary (which I later removed) until they were soft. I spooned the filling into 6 individual gratin dishes and covered them with the dough, letting it overlap the sides (instead of making a bottom crust). I used a small heart cookie cutter to create the vent. They turned out so cute! Thanks!

Stuffed Eggplant

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2004
Ew! I thought this was pretty awful. It took a long time to prepare- scraping the shells, cooking the filling and finally baking the whole thing. I poured all the breadcrumbs in at once- big mistake! The mixture turned into a glue-y mess and the final result baked hard and tasted only like the breadcrumbs. I hated to keep pouring more and more oil into the mixture- just keeps adding fat and calories. In the end, I threw the eggplant- AND the recipe- in the trash. Sorry!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: May 4, 2005
Great recipe! I think vanilla pudding when cooked in cake and cookie recipes has a bit of a tang! So I always use devil's food pudding and white chocolate chips. They always turn out fantastic! Also, even though it sounds yummy, don't use 1 cheesecake flavored pudding mix and one lemon w/ white chocolate chips. Blech! =)
