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.

A Farewell to Basil Fettuccine

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2003
I really liked this. Although my pasta machine had trouble cutting it into fettucini, I let it dry as whole sheets then cut it into 1/2"-ribbons by hand. I tossed it with a delicious sauce of 4 Tbs. butter, juice from 2 lemons, shallots, salt & pepper, and 1 egg yolk. Sorta like a modified hollandaise I guess. I would definitely make this again. It's a very pretty pasta dish.

Caramelized Onion and Blue Cheese Orzo

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2003
We really liked this. I didn't have any fresh spinach so I just omitted it. I used reduced-fat cream cheese instead of marscapone. My 4-year-old asked for seconds!!

Irish Cream Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2003
This is a great cake. Just made it for my father's 59th birthday. One night weekly we get together and have coffee with Bailey's so this cake was perfect for him. The liquor taste is subtle. I did "soak" the cake in the glaze in the cake pan. It made a wonderful sugary-crisp coating. This is a great cake for when you don't want to be bothered with a frosting.

Microwave Lemon Curd

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2007
This is great! A few stirs in the microwave and its done. Don't worry about it's runniness when hot, it firms right up when it cools. I filled mini-tartlet shells and they were delish!!!

Garlic Feta Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2007
This was delish! I was afraid of the "runnyness" so I added a bit more sour cream, and also added the juice of 1/2 a lemon. I enjoyed this more with the pita chips, but it was also good with fresh veggies. Definitely a keeper!

Quick Pickled Eggs and Beets

Reviewed: May 13, 2003
These are yummy. I increased the vingear to 3/4 cup, decreased the sugar to 1/4 cup, and added a small sliced onion to the mix.

Basic Microwave Risotto

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2007
I've had this in my recipe box for 2 years!! I finally tried it for a lunch with some leftover arborio in the cupboard. I didn't have wine, so I just used extra broth. I followed the microwaving directions exactly and came out with a FANTASTIC risotto. I must say I was skeptical, but it was very good. The fresh parmesan is absolutely necessary....don't use any of that fake shake stuff. I'm going to try it again with some asparagus, mushrooms and shrimp and make a lenten dinner out of it. YUM!

Bacon Cheeseburger Pasta

Reviewed: May 31, 2003
This was REALLY good. I was surprised that the ingredients did go together. I didn't read the directions well enough so I made several changes (without even knowing it). I used 1/2 lb. bacon, 1 lb. pasta shells, 1 diced onion, 1/3 cup BBQ sauce, 2 cans tomato soup, and 1 can cheese soup along with the ground beef. I mixed it all together and transferred it to a 9x13 baking dish, covered it with the cheddar cheese, baked it for 30 minutes at 350 and it was GREAT. My small children GOBBLED it right up.

Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2003
This is very good cornbread. I've always used the "box" mixes because I couldn't find a recipe that tasted "as good." This one does. As far as the crumbliness goes -- if you cut it when it is very hot, it'll crumble; if you let it cool a bit, it holds its shape just fine. A simple recipe too.

Authentic French Meringues

I've been making these for years, usually at Christmas. My kids have always loved them. They're simple, yet so beautiful!!

Black Bean Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2006
I did like this, but tweaked it a bit (adding more avocado and the juice of two limes in the place of the italian dressing). It seemed a bit sweet for me, so next time I'll grill some fresh corn on the cob to use in this recipe. It has a quite unique flavor.....will surely make again! UPDATE: Just ate this like a salsa with tortilla chips --AWESOME!

Antipasto Squares

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2003
10 stars would be appropriate!! These are just terrific. I made a single batch (wish I'd tripled it!!) cut it into about 40 squares and they were gone in 15 minutes. I served them while still warm (but not hot).

Bow Tie Medley

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2003
This is a GREAT recipe....very fresh using summer's ingredients. I used more veggies than called for but followed the rest of the recipe as is. I really enjoyed this meal.

Yellow Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2003
This is a GREAT use of yellow squash. I've tried many different squash casseroles in the past couple of years and they always are lacking in flavor. This one doesn't. I used reduced-fat Ritz crackers and cheddar cheese to help with the calories. This is a keeper!!

Zucchini Pineapple Bread I

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2003
This is very good. My 4-year old just ate a thick slice warm from the oven. My only deviation from recipe was using undrained crushed pineapple (juice was about 1/2 cup) and only 1/2 cup oil. The bread is still very moist.

Mock Champagne

Reviewed: May 23, 2006
I made this exactly as presented for my daughter's first communion brunch. It went over well with the adults as well as the children. As recommended by another reviewer, I made an ice ring in my bundt pan out of an additional 1-liter of ginger ale & apackage of fresh raspberries to keep the punch cold. I liked this better than "regular" punches with sherbert floating in them. It has a nice light, crisp taste.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2005
I've had this in my recipe box for 2 years and FINALLY made it yesterday...it was DEE-LISH!!! I omitted the cheddar cheese completely, but the rest was exactly the same. Didn't use the crockpot...microwaved at 40 percent power for about 20 minutes --stirring half way. I served with wheat thins and celery sticks. I didn't think i'd like the celery, but it turned out to be great. The crunchy with the hot/creamy dip was awesome!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2003
I've been making this for years now. Instead of garlic powder, I add a few shakes of Worchestershire sauce. I grew up eating a non-sweet, chunky tomato-based sloppy joe...this is how my mother-in-law makes them. Great with a side of corn and tater tots... By the way, I always serve potato chips with this meal and my husband and kids eat them ON the sandwich. I tried it last month and it is an interesting addition to the sandwich! DON'T PASS UP THIS RECIPE!!!!!
