Hot and Spicy Pecans

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2006
Very good - even better with 1 tsp soy sauce in place of salt, and cayenne instead of red pepper.

Russian Tea Cakes I

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2006
These are just fantastic. But wow for once I do not agree with the most helpful rated review. I did not care for the cookie rolled in sugar at all. I used both pecans and walnuts and liked the walnut better - the slight bitter taste of the nut was a perfect complement to the powdered sugar of the cookie. I ground the walnuts in my coffee grinder. I used a bit less flour (3 TBS less) than recommended for my second batch and that turned out better. Note that batter will be crumbly but when you roll it into a ball in your hand it will come together - just squeeze a bit! Also, when I rolled warm cookies in the powdered sugar they didn't even need a second roll! (warm and being able to hold in your hand without feeling YOW!, not hot or the powdered sugar will melt). Although I prefer walnut the most, this cookie is great with any kind of nut or flavoring - even pistachio. Roll in cinnamon and powdered sugar for something different.

Spumoni Slices

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2006
The problem with this recipe is that there is no way I could spread the dough out to the size they said - it ended up being so thin that the cookies were like long short strips - not like the picture at all. The flavor was surprisingly bland as well and the different flavours of the different dough are not noticeable. Still, these are festive looking as well as great tasting - I added pistachios instead of pecans to the green dough before assembling.

BLT Wedge with Roquefort

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2006
So much better than bottled dressing - worth the extra effort! I like fresh lemon juice rather than vinegar though. For a different flavor sometimes I use diced tomatoes and/or chopped walnuts.

Italian Bread Wedges

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2006
This is delicious! Use fresh sauteed crushed garlic and rosemary as a nice alternative.

Norwegian Pancakes - Pannekaken

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2006
Very good but needed 1 more egg to give it that slightly "rubbery" crepe texture and great taste. Added vanilla and a pinch of cinnamon. I melted butter added lemon, put in a tablespoon per crepe then sprinkled powdered sugar. Incredible. Be sure to cook with Pam not butter for best consistency and appearance.

Apple Pie II

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2006
Very good but too sweet especially with the juice (I used OJ) - I recommend using 1/4 cup brown sugar and then later 1/4 cup white. Must add vanilla and cinnamon! For a treat add 1/4 cup dried cranberries. So good.

Garlic Shrimp Linguine

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2006
Very bland unless you add 4 TBS butter, 1/4 cup wine, 4 cloves garlic, 1-2 TBS lemon juice and do NOT put the cheese in as you are making the sauce (I added about 1/4 cup cheese). Toss it with the pasta after or you will have a congealed messy blob. I prefer basil to parsley but both are good.

Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2006
I followed the recipe exactly and it tasted SO GOOD. The only thing I would change is to perhaps add 1 -2 cups nuts before baking. If you are watching salt you could add 1/2 tsp salt and it turns out fine. I definately taste the salt with 1 tsp, but I like the salty sweet flavor. I bake in a large dutch oven lightly coated with PAM.

Caramel Apple Pie II

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2006
After all the reviews of runniness and hard caramels, I was a bit wary but this recipe turned out perfect. I had no problem with either. I did use 7 granny smith apples (overpacked the pie), used half the sugar and sealed very well. I think mixing well and cooking longer helps with the runny problem. I also brushed with milk and sprinkled sugar on top, and cut out a few fall leaves out of extra dough to make it pretty and fall-ish. I think it is too sweet to serve with ice cream - we used a dollop of fresh whipped cream that had barely any sugar added, and a sprinkle of nutmeg on that.

Cranberry Sauce I

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2006
Very good - my only suggestion would be to add a bit of grated orange peel, and to use fresh OJ. I followed other reviewers and placed this in half a hollowed out orange for presentation. Place autumn colored leaves on a plate, place the orange over that. Save a few cranberries to place on the plate too. Looks so pretty!

Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies II

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2006
Very good but do NOT bake the frosting - it bubbled and crystalized and was not near as pretty. Adding the fudge later keeps it glossy and dark looking - sooo much prettier and tastier (make it while cookies cooling)

The Best Thai Peanut Sauce

Bodacious Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2006
Very good. I actually liked the full tsp of pepper - what needed to be cut was the vinegar (I only used one TBS) and omitted lemon juice altogether. For a bit of kick, fresh crushed garlic is wonderful but just 1/4 tsp. It packs quite a punch.

Simple Garlic and Basil Pesto

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2006
A good basic recipe - I added some crushed red pepper in place of chili powder. Also i recommend roasting the pine nuts first, and adding a bit of salt. But DO NOT put this in a blender - it will taste like pureed grass. Chop it fine or use a mortar and pestle - it is worth the extra work.

Garlic Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2006
Really good - but only use 1/2 lemon and lots more parmesan (fresh grated, don't skimp here). I used sea salt and tons of fresh cracked pepper. Even better with fresh herbs like chives or rosemary. One more tip - halve the potatoes and place them flesh side down after tossing to get a lovely browned potato. I add chicken quarters and toss it all together then cook this way. It's killer good. Cook at 400 for 40-45 minutes.
