Cool Whipped Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2007
Absolutley fantastic and that is coming from a fan of traditional buttercream icing. I thought the taste of this was delicious and even better was the texture. It's like a thicker, stiffer whpped cream. Not as pudding tasting as bavarian cream but not as thin as a whipped cream icing. Perfect for a strawberry shortcake. I used it on the Coconut Cream Cake I from this website and the taste was to die for. My husband brought that cake with this frosting into work and every co-worker asked for the recipe. And the fact that it takes about 2 minutes to make makes it a 10 star recipe in my book. Another reviewer commented that this is "artificial tasting." Let's be honest, if you like cool whip you will LOVE this recipe. If you are expected this to taste like real heavy whipped cream, you are being unrealistic. I love cool whip; it's light, it's not as fattening and this frosting really holds it's shape well. Not runny at all.

Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2005
This was a real, real disappointment. There is NO WAY you can pipe this is soooooooo soft and runny. I am an part time cake decorator so I am very familiar with piping frosting. I placed my bowl and beaters in the freezer and chilled my whipped cream. It was still too soft to really ice anything other than a flat sheet cake. After reading the reviews I noted that some people said use only 1 cup of whipped cream and not 1 ½ cups. Possibly that may have made it a little thicker. But my point is...the recipe as written does not work. Another reviewer suggested that this frosting can only be used on a flat, sheet type cake and I totally agree. I used this to frost a 10 inch angel food cake and it just started to drip/slide down the sides. It did not hold up well.....and that was after refrigerating and trying to chill/thicken it up. I would never make this again....stick will regular, buttercream creamcheese frosting. If you enjoy carrot cake with traditional cream cheese frosting you will not enjoy this fluffy, runny, whipped cream version.

Pignoli Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2006
Even though this Pignoli cookie recipe has fewer reviews, it is the better one (and I made both). If you are using 8 oz. of almond paste (I used solo that comes in the can), you can only use two eggs whites. If you use too many egg whites your cookies will be a completely flattened. The only change I made to the recipe was to use 2/3 cup of sugar and not 1 cup because they were just too sweet. Other than that, this recipe is perfect! You will have beautiful pignoli cookies that taste like they came from an Italian bakery (this coming from a Jersey girl who had eaten alot of good Italian bakery cookies!) You can't go wrong with this recipe.

Pasta with Fresh Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2007
Absolutley delicious summertime meal! I have always had a phobia of using uncooked, fresh tomatoes in a sauce but I've been converted! lol My husband loves red onions and Italian dressing so I decided to give this recipe a try. I used four beefsteak tomatoes (my plum romas were not ripe yet) that I picked from my garden and I seeded and diced them. Then I picked a big handful of basil and chopped that up. I added 1/2 cup of Good Seasons Salad dsg ( that I had made with balsamic vinegar...I noted that alot of recipes for fresh tomato sauce add balsamic vinegar so that is how I incorporated it into this one). Finally, I used angel hair because that is what I had. It is just an explosion of freshness and summer in your mouth when you eat this. I highly recommend!

Linzer Tarts

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2004
Excellent recipe for authentic tasting linzer tarts. These were even better the next day when the jam softened the cookie a little bit. I forgot to add the cinnamon by mistake and they still tasted incredible. They are labor intensive but I had fun rolling the dough and cutting out the shapes. You just have to gingerly handle everything. The end product is worth the effort. Linzer cookies cost $1.50 each in the bakery! This recipe makes about 30 cookies and they taste BETTER than the bakery. My mother could not believe that I made them, she said they looked so professional. I can't wait to make them in heart shapes for Valentine's Day. Thank you for a true 5 star recipe!!! NOTE: I have made these fantastic cookies numerous times and the most important piece of advice I can give is after to roll your dough out onto a pieice of wax paper and place the wax paper with the impressions in the freezer for 5 minutes. THEN, remove the rounded cut out shapes. If you do it when the dough is cold, your cookies will not break. Also, I just use Smuckers squeezable raspberry preserves, you do not have to warm the preserves. Anytime you have trouble with this dough just chill it.

The Best Chicken Salad Ever

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2005
This IS really delicious!!! I'm a big Miracle Whip fan so I liked the fact that this calls for salad dressing which is why I gave it a try. I have never tried cole slaw dressing and didn't even know they made such an item but I found it in my local shoprite. It added a wonderful flavor!! As another reviewer, I did not "puree" this in a food processor but left it chunky. Yummy recipe! Thanks!

Gary's Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2004
These are FANTASTIC! I did take the advice of other reviewers and reduced the butter. I used one stick of butter to saute the garlic, then I added the cream cheese to the melted butter/garlic until it was melted and smooth. I added this entire mixture to Stovetop chicken flavored stuffing and added two cans of Geisha snow crab meat. It does make alot of stuffing but it freezes well so you can save some for another batch of stuffed mushrooms. These taste unbelievalbe. Whether I make 25 or 75 of these for a party...every last one is eaten. Thanks for a fantastic recipe!!

Pineapple Angel Food Cake I

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2004
Thank you soooooo much for posting this recipe! I would have given it 10 stars if I could. It is so easy; my 5 year old son practically made the whole thing. And the taste!!! Heavenly. It is the perfect combination of delicate angel food and sweet pineapple. A great low fat dessert and perfect for my weight watchers diet. I used lite Cool Whip so a serving size only has 1 gram of fat!! Delicious!!!!!!!!

Candied Kielbasa

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2005
Wow, was this YUMMY! Being a Polish girl, I never had kielbasa this way! lol I read the reviews and grilled my kielbasa lightly on the BBQ so that fat would not drip into the crockpot. (I love my kielbasa BBQ'd). Then to my dismay, I discovered that my husband used the last of our horseradish! I didn't want to substitute but I had to use horshradish sauce. Luckily, some other reviewers had done the same and said it turned out great. Well, I have to agree. The sauce was NOT liquidly or runny from too much fat...the horseradish sauce still gave it a nice zing without too much heat (even my six year old son loved it). Just a delicious way to prepare kielbasa. We always grill kielbasa for appetitizers at parties and I was thinking of even making the sauce and serving it on the side for dipping. The combination of the smoked, garlicky kielbasa and the sweet/tangy sauce is sooooooooooooo good! Thanks for a great recipe.

Amish Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2005
I really loved this............but beware, you HAVE to cut the amount of sugar. Thank goodness that I read the reviews before making this and did not add the full amount of sugar. I used 1/3 cup of sugar and I still found it a little sweet; and I LIKE sweet. Next time I will only use a 1/4 cup of sugar. Overall a delicious macaroni salad, creamy with a little tangy zing. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe!

Banana Cake V

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2005
This cake is WOW!!!! I am so picky about cakes regarding whether they are moist and flavorful. This cake/recipe is really superb. I am so glad I went with this recipe of the many banana cake recipes on this site. The reason I did was that I did not want to buy a whole container of buttermilk that the other more highly rated recipe had. This banana cake called for sour cream and cake flour and I had both at home. I do find that cakes that call for cake flour are more tender and moist and this one holds true. Like other reviewers suggested...I used 3 bananas which measured 1½ cups of mashed banana. I followed the recipe exactly. This is the most delicious cake I have made in a long, long time. My six year old son asked if he can have this cake for his birthday cake next year.

Rainbow Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2001
This is one of my all-time favorite and most requested recipes. I even make it easier by just spraying the pans with non-stick cooking spray instead of parchment paper and the cookies easily come out. Every time I make these people cannot believe they were not bought in a bakery they look so beautiful and professional. And how they taste!! Delicious and super moist little cakes. Outrageous!

Yummy Honey Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2002
This recipe was just fantastic! I didn't have soy sauce so I used Yoshida's marinade instead and the results were just awesome. A slightly sweet, teriyaki flavored marinade. Even my 3 year old ate the chicken. My husband who is the pickiest human alive absolutely loved it. Thanks for a great summer recipe!

Asian Beef Skewers

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2005
WOW! These were awesome! I made these twice. First time was for dinner; we loved them but my husband thought they were a little salty. I also forgot to add the green onions the first time. Well, the second time I made them was for a barbeque yest. This time I added the green onions and I added half soy sauce and half Yoshida's marinade. They turned out perfect! All the guests were raving. Even the kids kept asking for more "meat on a stick." I HIGHLY recommend this recipe for a bbq get together. They are quick to cook and delicious to eat!!! Thanks for this recipe.

Blackberry BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2005
I was really nervous about making this recipe because my husband is not a big fan of sweet stuff. Well, I'm happy to say we both LOVED this! I followed the recipe exactly except that I only added 1 cup of ketchup as per other reviewers suggestions and than I added a 1/4 cup of Bull's Eye bbq sauce because I was worried it would taste to "ketchup tasting" as other reviewers said. The intersting thing about this recipe is that is tastes awesome and you would never be able to tell what it is that tastes so interesting. I had my husband brush this on chicken wings that we grilled and they reminded me of the wonderful taste of duck when they serve it with a fruit glaze/sauce. I used seedless blackberry preserves. We are having a bbq on JLu 4th and are planning on serving this! I can't wait to see peoples reactions when they ask what is in it. Thank you for a delicious recipe! Try will not be disappointed. It is NOT too sweet......just YUMMY!

Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: May 31, 2007
I made these on a Friday night and again on Sunday night because they were so good. We have an inground pool and our house is party central in the summer so I'm always looking for great grilling recipes. Our guests were freaking out over how great these ribs were. I had numerous people say they were the best ribs they ever had. I was previously making my baby back ribs with the Prize winning ribs recipe from this website but there is NO comparison. These ribs fall right off the bone. They are tender and absolutely delicious. I baked them in the oven in the aluminum foil tents (I used Sweet Baby Rays honey bbq sauce) and then grilled them on high for 2-3 minutes a side so they had nice charcoal grill marks on them. These also taste GREAT with the Blackberry BBQ sauce from this website. Thank you so much for this recipe. This is the ONLY way I will ever make ribs on the grill this summer or ever again!!!

New Orleans Barbequed Shrimp

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2005
First off, I hate anythiing marinated in Italian dresssing so I was skeptical of this recipe but decided to give it a try based on the great reviews. I had to alter it because I grilled the shrimp. Instead of ½ cup of butter I used ¼ cup of olive oil. I used 2 cloves fresh garlic, ½ fresh squeezed lemon and 2 tsp Old Bay. It was simply amazing. My neighbor who came to our barbeque also brought shrimp and I ended up feeling bad because everyone was raving and devouring my shrimp! Yes, they are that unbelievably good! I can't wait to make this recipe as written with the butter baked in the oven. I just wanted to let people know that it is delicious grilled too! Also, I peeled my shrimp and the flavor permeated the shrimp and was wonderful.

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: May 6, 2008
I just returned from a PTA sponsored breakfast for the teacher's because today is national teacher's day and I was asked to help out and make a quiche. I usually do not make something to bring somewhere without having made it before but I figured with all the positive reviews of this quiche, I couldn't go wrong. This is a TEN star recipe. There were five quiches at the teacher breakfast and this one was gone in 15 minutes. Teachers were asking me for the recipe! I only used half a stick of butter and half the package of spinach, I just feel that the whole 10 oz package of spinach is too much. Other than those minor changes, I followed the recipe exactly. The garlic-herb feta gives it a wonderful flavor. I have also made the crustles spinach quiche on this website and this one is really much, much tastier and delicious. I can't want to make it again. Thanks for a superb recipe!!

Ga Ga Clusters

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2004
I thought these were fantastic! I made these with milk chocolate though, not semi sweet and I think that made a big difference. I'm so glad I went with this recipe instead of making a fudge recipe from this site. These are like a peanut cluster fudge. I read one of the other reviewers comments that it did not "set" for her; but I had no such problem. After chilling for two hours they were delicious!! Creamy, Yummy! I did not use marshmallows, I just added a 16oz can of Walgreens lightly salted peanuts; I thought the sweet/salty combo would be good and it is! Just the perfect taste. Thanks for a great recipe...super easy and super delicious. It's killing me not to eat them all and save some for Christmas cookie trays!!

Eggplant -- Easy, Good and Tasty

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2004
My husband and I love this recipe. I like the fact that you don't have to fry the eggplant. My only suggestion is to flip the slices over half way thru baking so they are golden brown on both sides.
