Spaghetti Torte

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2002
I just made this for dinner....it was ok. For the work that goes into making it, the final product was a bit disappointing. I added a bit of garlic powder and salt to the cheese mixture and served with a side of sauce. I probably wouldn't make it again.

Pesto

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2002
This was very good. It was my first attempt to make/eat pesto. I toasted the pine nuts (as someone else recommended) and omitted the parsley. Next time, though, I'm going to try a little chicken broth and a little less oil. It was just a bit too oily for my liking. I tossed it with a lb. of fetuccini and cubed chicken breasts and it there was a bit leftover. I'm looking forward to making it again.

Rick's Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2002
This was great. I used 1/2 butter and 1/2 crisco and about 6 cups of sugar (and still wasn't too sweet). This frosting has an incredibly smooth spreading consistancy, yet is strong enough to hold a shape if piped as border/edging. It makes a ton, too. I frosted and decorated a 4 layer 8-inch cake and still had about 1-1/2 cups leftover. THIS IS MY NEW FROSTING OF CHOICE!!

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2002
This was ok. I think cut my eggplant too thin as it seemed to lose its flavor in the breading. I tried it again cutting the eggplant thicker and it came out terrific. It really does cook down during the baking process. I always shy away from eggplant parm because of the high-fat frying process. I use this method now.

Chocolate Zucchini Bread I

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2002
AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME!! This replaces my "usual" chocolate zuchini bread recipe. It was so moist and just delicious. The kids ate it like CRAZY!! Next time I'm going to replace 1/2 cup of the oil with applesauce to make it a bit healthier. You HAVE to try this!!

Connie's Zucchini "Crab" Cakes

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2002
These were very good. I worried about the zucchini being too watery, so I shredded it into a collander and added about 1/2 tsp. of salt. I let it drain for about 30 minutes (pressing slightly with wooden spoon)...yielding about 2/3 cup water. I will definitely make these again.

Cinnamon Hazelnut Biscotti

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2002
THESE ARE AWESOME!!! I made these last week for a baby shower and everyone RAVED about them. They were easier than I had expected. I substituted slivered almonds and rough diced them to make it easier to cut. You HAVE to try these. Next time I'm going to drizzle a bit of chocolate over them.

Pasta with Kielbasa and Sauerkraut

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2002
This was surprisingly good....the ingredients are kind of weird, but do go together nicely. I thought it tasted better the longer it sat. Was excellent as leftovers.

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: May 11, 2002
This was awesome. I stretched the sauce a bit by adding 1 cup of plain tomato sauce to 1 cup salsa then served it over white rice with a side of brocolli. My 4 year old asked when I was going to make it again!

Creamy Pasta Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2002
The really was delicious. I made it last night--it was super easy and so creamy. I used light sour cream. The recommendation to top it with mozzarella and cover baked were good calls. My kids were a bit skeptical of the spinach, but ate it anyways!! You've gotta try it.

Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2002
This is an excellent recipe....I made it a bit "low fat" by using light sour cream and making buttermilk from skim milk and vinegar. I also reduced the amount of raisens to about 1 cup and it was perfect. I didn't even "knead" it in the bowl, just transferred the batter directly to the baking dish for shaping and baking. Everyone asked for the recipe. Excellent toasted in the morning!

Cottage Noodles and Cabbage

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2002
This recipes is delicious. I made minor modifications -- cooked the cabbage and onions till very soft, used 2 cups cottage cheese, and added 1 lb. sliced, browned, & drained turkey kielbasa. It was a very good main dish. My husband (who's not very fond of cabbage) had two BIG servings!!

Angel Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2002
We really liked this dish. I cubed chicken breasts first, then made the sauce in a large skillet -- added the chicken into the skillet and baked it like that. The sauce was too thick for us, so I added 1/2 a can of chicken broth. Next time I'm going to try low-fat cream cheese and bowtie-shaped pasta. It was great.
