Best Marinara Sauce Yet

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2012
This is very tasty sauce but I can't give it 5 stars because I believe the amount of olive oil is just way too much! I usually read the reviews prior to making a recipe but didn't have time. After making this and realizing how much oil it called for, I went back and looked and read about 12 reviews before anyone even mentioned it. I know it's only for sautéing the onion, but 6 tbs for 1/3 cup onion? Ridiculous! I should have drained it but instead, I followed the recipe and added the sauce and wine. It tasted good, but you could see it was oily. 2 tbsp would be plenty! I don't know if that was a typo or if someone just really likes olive oil, but that is my only complaint with this recipe. I used chardonnay for the wine because that was all we had. It was really very good, despite the oil issue.

Cream Cheese Spritz

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
I'm not a big fan of making spritz cookies because they are always such a pain to get to come out of the spritzer. But this dough worked pretty well. The only problem I had was probably the fault of the particular disk I used in my spritzer. Once I changed it, they worked fine. I made two separate batches (one red, one green). The first batch I made exactly as the recipe states, except with butter flavored shortening. For the second batch, I increased the sugar to 1/2 cup because they just didn't seem very sweet, and I added about 4 oz of cream cheese instead of 3 because they were a little crumbly. This all seemed to help. They're pretty good little cookies.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
This is a wonderful lasagna! It says it serves 12. I cut it into 12 pieces. But we had 6 guests and we have 3 pieces left over! I guess it was a hit! I usually change up the recipes a little but this one I made exactly as shown, except I didn't have fennel. I couldn't find ground sweet Italian sausage so I bought Johnsonville sweet Italian bratwurst and took off the casings. Three brats was about 3/4 lbs. I didn't follow anyone else's review suggestions. I wanted to see for myself it it's truly the world's best lasagna and I do believe that it is! My only change would be to use shredded mozzarella just because it's easier and looks prettier on the top. It did make more sauce than I needed, so I used the extra sauce as pizza sauce for some homemade pizzas a few days later. Yum! I make lasagna for Christmas Eve every year and I think I've just found the recipe that I will use from now on! Thank you Johnchandler!

Fried Ice Cream

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
This was wonderful! Any problems with it were not due to the recipe, but my lack of proper equipment. I don't have a deep fryer so I heated oil in a dutch oven. And I didn't test the temp. Now my house smells like a deep fryer! I fried flour tortillas in oil and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. Added a spot of whipped cream as a sort of nest for the ice cream ball. I had frozen the ice cream balls for 3 hours as directed. I coated them with egg and them dipped them in the crumb mix (I used crushed corn chex). I did deep fry the balls but my oil was too hot and it just made it a burning, stinking mess! Once I turned down the heat, it was better, but still messy. So they crumb mix was only partially fried as I would dip quickly in and out and not get the whole ball fried. But they tasted delicious and my whole family loved them!

Chocolate Martini a la Laren

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2011
Yum!!! Restaurant quality martini for sure! I used two oz of vanilla vodka instead of three oz of reg vodka, I added two oz of skim milk and swirled chocolate sauce in the martini glass. Topped with a little whipped cream, it was delicious!

Easy Turkey Gravy

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
I was leery of this recipe because I thought using cream of chicken soup for gravy was cheating! But I really wanted a flavorful gravy to go with the turkey I made. This gravy was unbelievable! It was so tasty and I got nothing but rave reviews. I did not use turkey stock because I had more than 5 cups of pan drippings, so I just used all drippings. That was the only modification I made to the recipe. Some complained the gravy comes out too salty. I didn't find that to be the case but I tend to like things a little more salty. I guess I would say to use half the season salt and low sodium soup and turkey stock if it's a concern. Very pleased with this and will definitely make again. Could easily be modified for chicken gravy.

Mexican Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2010
My family loved this! I used flour tortillas because that's what I had and I don't really care for corn tortillas. It was delicious and so easy!

Slow Cooker Creamy Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
This ended up being better than I expected. I did change a few things, of course. First, I did not pre-cook the bacon. I had the already cooked bacon that you just microwave, so when I served the soup, I had a side bowl of crumbled bacon, green onions and shredded cheese for those who chose to top their soup. Second, I did not pre-cook the onions because after being in a crock pot for seven hours, they are plenty tender. It's just a wasted step in my opinion. I didn't have condensed broth, but did have two 14 oz cans of regular chicken broth, so I used those and didn't add any water at all. It cooked all day and 30 minutes after adding the cream/flour and evaporated milk, it was very bland. I then added 2 tsp of salt and 1/8 tsp black pepper. That was all it needed. Very tasty after that. But as is, the recipe needs more flavor.

Party Punch VI

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
I made this for a bridal shower on Saturday and everyone loved it. I have a standard size punch bowl and it wouldn't hold two containers of juice plus the soda and sherbet, so I just used one and it turned out great. I'll make this again!

Cafeteria Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
I changed in the following ways: 1 cup of milk instead of 1-1/2, 1/2 tsp of Wrcestershire instead of 1, 2-1/2 cups cheese instead of 3-1/2, 1/3 c bread crumbs instead of 1/2, and 1-1/2 Tbsp butter instead of 2. I also skipped the paprika because I don't like it. Turned out pretty good.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
Good recipe. I made lower in fat and calories by using Egg Beaters instead of whole eggs, applesauce instead of oil, 1 c white sugar and 1 c brown sugar in place of so much white sugar, and no walnuts. Turned out great.

Cranberry Brandy Slush

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
Simply delicious! We use cran-raspberry or some other cran combo of juice. Love it! It is so versatile. We've used blackberry brandy when we couldn't find cherry brandy. I've used all different kinds of frozen concentrate juices instead of lemonade, though they're always red. I do use the orange juice called for in the recipe. So much easier than the old fashioned way of making slush! My family always looks forward to this at my house so I not only make it at Christmas (which is my family's tradition) but I now make it for other holiday gatherings as well. I make a triple batch so it takes several days for it to become slushy!

Crab Cakes II

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2008
This was a wonderful recipe, though I did add 1/2 tsp Old Bay, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper and a clove of minced garlic. The only reason it doesn't get five stars is because they fell apart. I used imitation crab meat and chopped it with a food chopper. I did not use all the oil it called for. I just poured some in the pan and fried them like pancakes. They were so tasty my husband asked for more.
