"Zuccotto" Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2015
These are divine! I made them the night before and popped them in the freezer on a sheet tray, uncovered. I pulled them out at 7 a.m. and let thaw on the counter. No problem with condensation and they were ready to eat by 11 a.m. (thawed four hours.) I used tall, brown cupcake liners which was a good choice since the ganache was still thin when I put it on and the liners held it in place. The liners also made it easy to pull the cupcakes out the pans when done baking -- and transportation was a breeze since I didn't have to worry about the tops bumping each other. I loved the bittersweet chocolate in the white cake. YUM! The filling is really good. Next time I'll add more crushed Heath bars. The toasted hazelnuts were good, but any toasted nut would work. The raspberries added just a touch of freshness (even though they were frozen.) The white chocolate frosting was yummy, but needed a bit of powdered sugar added. I had a bit of trouble piping through an XL star tip -- must have gotten a chunk of hardened chocolate off the bowl, so next time I'll be more careful of that or just use a large round tip. I sprinkled the top with more Heath - pretty! And my daughter made little Italian flags which were the perfect topper as these were headed to an Italian-themed, Freshman finale lunch. I will definitely make these again and again, and since these can be made ahead of time, the four hour prep won't be a big deal.

Spinach Salad with Warm Bacon-Mustard Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2015
Delicious! I sauteed onion in olive oil then added precooked and crumbled bacon. Stirred in red wine vinegar, mustard, honey and some mayo to mellow the vinegar. To the spinach I added a few sliced strawberries and mushrooms. Topped with warm dressing and combined well. I put some of the salad in containers for lunches and packaged dressing separately. Ate the rest for dinner. Yum!

Red Bean Salad with Feta and Peppers

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2015
Colorful! I doubled the recipe and used both red and yellow bell peppers. Also cilantro in place of the parsley. Salt and pepper to taste.

Quick Hoppin' John Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2015
A great, quick meal to use what I had on hand. I sauteed an onion with the sausage. Then added a can of crushed tomatoes and a can of tomato sauce. Then came a diced carrot, a clove of garlic and a can of white beans. Celery would be nice too. Delicious!

Cranberry Orange Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2014
Don't overfill your pans. 2/3 full should be good. I doubled the recipe and it overflowed the pans. Next time, I'll skip the cranberries, oranges and sugar on top and just stir the fruit in. The cranberries burned, the orange were unnoticeable (sank?) and the sugar dissolved. The loaves took over an hour to cook. This would be better as muffins or mini loaves, something that didn't take as long to cook through. This is a very sweet batter, although that offsets the tart cranberries. I followed the recipe, although I did add the zest of an orange. That was a delicious addition.

Oven Fried Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2014
I really liked this. A great week night meal. I thought one hour of baking would be too much, but it wasn't. The chicken turned out juicy and crunchy. I used Panko bread crumbs, and put a clove of crushed garlic in with the butter.

Make-Ahead Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2014
The gals at Bible study loved this. I think I'll try a different topping next time. Perhaps one mixed with butter and flour.

Pork Medallions with Balsamic Vinegar and Capers

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2013
Delicious! I omitted the capers and lemon and just used the balsamic and broth. Divine. Next time I'll double the sauce. It would be good with onions, garlic and mushrooms added. Potatoes and rice on the side.

Big Smokey Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2013
Loved the garlic and onion; not so much the liquid smoke. I used Montreal steak seasoning and it was a bit strong.

Cracked Sugar Cookies I

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
I had three egg yolks to use, so decided to give these a try. Mine didn't crack as much as I would have liked, but that's likely due to my adjustment. I added 2 tsp. vanilla and used extra large eggs. Perhaps that liquid made the difference? Nevertheless, delicious. I made snickerdoodles out of these by rolling in cinnamon and sugar - my hubby's favorite. Thanks for a great recipe!

Green Beans with Bread Crumbs

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2012
Good as is, but much better if you fry the bread crumbs. Here are my revisions. Boil and drain the beans. Put 3 T olive oil and 3 T of butter in saute pan. Add 1 c. Panko bread crumbs, 1/2 c. dry parmesan and a generous amount of garlic salt. Mix and brown over medium-high heat. Stir in green beans and stir to coat. Delicious!

Mound Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2012
Really good. I made it according to directions, mixing the coconut and the sweetened condensed milk. Baked the coconut for about five minutes and then spread it. Topped it with chocolate chips and almonds. Yum!

Mary's Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2012
My new favorite! The almond extract makes these cookies! I doubled the recipe and added an extra cup of flour, perfect flavor, nicely sweet. The kids *loved* the dough. I did manage to make car cookies for our derby car race tomorrow. I did refrigerate the dough for a couple of hours.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2012
Really good. I added cinnamon to the syrup. Mix the apples with the syrup, reserving enough enough to glaze the top. Next time I'll bake the pie for 1 hr 15 minutes or 1-1/2 hrs. I used Rome apples and they were still firm after an hour.

Garlic Cheese Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2012
Great as written. I doubled the cheese and added 3T of Johnny's dry garlic spread mix (Costco.) Brushed the top with butter and more garlic mix. I used my cookie scoop and got 12 biscuits. They packed quite a punch. Next time I'll cut the seasoning in half.

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2012
Delicious. I marinated for about an hour. I doubled the marinade and used half for chicken breast. The skewers were great!
