Baklava

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2009
Really yummy, and I got alot of people at the office asking me for the recipe! My boss wanted Middle Eastern food for a meeting- Got the food, but the place that I got it from doesn't have good baklava, so I made it myself. The ONLY thing I would change on the recipe is that I didn't need to cut the sheets b/c they fit the size of the cookie sheets. I think it just depends on the brand you get. I measured the standard ones at the store, and they are alot shorter on both ends, so the directions that NEONWILLIE gave is probably correct. I layered at least 8 sheets on the bottom, 2 first, butter, 2 more, butter, etc. Then 1/3 of the nuts, 2 more sheets, butter, 2 more sheets, 1/3 of the nuts, etc. Using onlly 2-3 T. of nuts, you would end up w/ too many nuts at the end. Also, I doubled up the syrup, because I like mine sticky- and that is proportionate to what was called for on the recipe on the box. On the phyllo dough box recipe, they added in 1/8 t. cloves- I did a sprinkle so I wouldn't deviate too far from this recipe, and it came out really good. (Boss was happy!)

Crostini

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
Loved this recipe! Definitely a keeper. For color, I added a dash of paprika, but kept everything else the same. I ran out of cheese in between, but I had a large loaf of bread. This tasted just like the crostini served at Nordstrom, and this is exactaly what I was looking for! Some say that it was greasy, but if you broil it on a broiler grill, some of the oil comes out of it. It crisps up after taking out of the broiler as well. Decadent and savory!

German Red Cabbage

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2011
So yummy and easy to make! I didn't have cheesecloth, so I just put the spices directly in the pot. My 9 year old daughter loved it! This recipe can probably be made without the thickener (cornstarch/water) at the end, it got a bit thick, but it all depends on how you like your cabbage. This tastes just like a German deli's salad that is near our house. Oh, and my German hubby says that this is just like his grandmother's.

Speedy Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
Yummy and very easy to make! My 7 year old daughter pretty much made them herself with some help from me. To top that, she doesn't like fresh salmon for some reason- but she loved these salmon patties! Good go to recipe when you're short on time. The taste was good too.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
Pretty much the best lasagne recipe i've tried! This has alot of ingredients, but really, is pretty simple to make. Just make sure you have all your ingredients ready (mis en place) and you're good to go. I did everything exactly as the recipe goes, and it literally flew out of the pan! The layering was a bit tricky- I used the 9x13" pan, but had 3 remaining noodles and alot of sauce so I just did an extra layer without the ricotta mixture. This didn't really need my 2 cents, as it's already rated by alot of people, but I thought i'd share, thank you so much for this keeper recipe! :)

Savory Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2005
These crab mushrooms were sooo good! I made them for a wine party, and I got great raves. Easy and simple. I used surimi instead of real crab. Next time, i'm going to use real crab, just to see what it's like.

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2005
This recipe was so easy and so good! Tasted just like a pig roasted in the ground. I got the Mesquite flavored smoke flavoring from the store. There were 2 kinds. I used a 3 1/2 lb. roast, and the recipe didn't say to use low or high, so I used high overnight. I put it in at 7:00 and woke up at 7:00 (12 hours) it was fabulous! A little dark on the edges, but once the pork was shredded, it soaked up the oil and was perfect. I got alot of requests for the recipe. Next time, i'd probably try it on high for the first couple of hours, and then go to low overnight. High seemed really hot for overnight!

Spinach Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2005
This recipe is really easy and fast, easy to transport too! I used finely chopped green onions in place of reg. white onions though. Everyone loved them and wants the recipe. I would also mention to just spread the mixture to about 1/2" of the finished edge of the tortilla, as it will spread out as its rolled up.

Kaes-Spaetzle

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2005
I sent this recipe to my sister in law. She made it for Christmas and said that it was really easy and it is JUST LIKE Grandma's. She said that the carmelized onions took a litle longer than she thought they should, but they were easy to make with a spaetzle maker. My husband had some the day after, microwaved, and said that it was excellent!

Hummus III

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2012
Very easy and simple to make. Just follow the recipe! You can add your own ingredients to give it a special flair: roasted red pepper, pesto, garlic, etc. Some photos don't do this recipe justice. Make sure you save some of the canned juice to thin it out as you are blending.

Easy Sausage Strata

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2004
Easily doubled recipe! I loved that you can clean out your freezer with this recipe as well as make it ahead of time. I made it to take to an early morning potluck breakfast. Everyone loved it! It was really tasty. For a change of pace, the next time, i'll throw in some diced green chiles. Thank you for this recipe!

Popovers

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
So easy to make, and so yummy! I always thought that you needed fat drippings to make a good popover, but with this recipe, it makes a great batter for an easy addition to a meal. Make sure you give yourself ample time for the baking. I doubled the recipe since I needed more than 6, but found out that this recipe is probably for a larger pan- I have a cupcake sized popover pan, and doubling made about 18 popovers. They all went though, everyone loved them and asked for more!

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2012
Yum! I am usually pretty picky and give 5 stars on only a few recipes, but this one got 5 for being so tasty, easy and quick! I only added a sliced onion to the mushrooms since I had so many on hand. I wouldn't change a thing to the recipe, ingredient-wise. My husband loved it too-- I made it with chicken tenderloins from Costco, so the pieces were a bit smaller and I didn't pound them. I liked that the thickening comes from the flour on the chicken vs. making a roux and then adding the sherry/marsala then adding the chicken. Definitely a keeper!

Curry Kabobs

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2011
This was an absolute easy and delicious marinade on the fly for me! I let the meat marinade for a couple of hours and then skewered the meat. YUM! The sauce was a bit thick, so there was no need to discard the marinade, and I used chicken thigh meat. My guests commented how moist and tasty the meat was, and they weren't curry fans! I did double the curry as others mentioned, so I used 1 t. curry, and kept the other ingredients the same. Did 1/2 of the kabobs in the broiler and the other 1/2 on the charcoal grill. Both were excellent!

Pumpkin Crunch Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2005
This "cake"/pie, is delicious! More like a pumpkin crunch souffle would be the better description of this dish. Travels well, and delicious served with whipped cream, either hot or cold!

Banana Cake VI

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
After seeing all the reviews, had to make and chime in. I made the recipe with no changes, so it's fair. It's moist, easy to make, and tasty. BUT I think that it's a little on the heavy side, like a bread. The frosting was good, the cream cheese taste was a bit strong for the banana cake, so I added in more powdered sugar to the remainder of the frosting. As far as the cake, i'd probably keep the recipe, but still am searching for one that is a bit less dense. I didn't think it was too sweet as some had mentioned. I'm not sure if sticking it in the freezer does anything for the cake if you are going to eat it within a couple of days or that day anyways. All it does is bring your freezer temp down and defrosts some items. It didn't cool the entire cake either. I did have to bake mine for 1 hour and 25 minutes at 275 degrees. I don't live in high altitude, and I do have an oven thermometer.

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2011
Great basic recipe with items you can find in your pantry. I thought that the chili was better the next day, after the flavor melded in and it thickened up a bit. The only addition I would suggest is to thicken up the chili with a flour/water mixture and simmer in at the end. The flavors were really good!

Smoked Turkey Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2011
This recipe is really easy to follow, with alot of ingredients that are on hand. I used the carcass of my smoked turkey from Thanksgiving- flavor was really good! The only thing is that I was hoping with the amount of half and half, that the soup would be a bit creamier/thicker, maybe more like a chowder. I used a flour/water thickener, which was okay, but found that after cooling in the fridge, the soup turned too thick, into a gel. Upon heating on the stove, the soup thinned out back to where it was. I will be posting a photo soon as well. If you want a thick soup, this is not it, but it's a thin creamy/brothy soup with alot of flavor!

Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2011
Easy recipe-- I used kosher salt vs. table salt, and my daughter who normally doesn't like asparagus at least ate one and said it was good!
