Cocktail Meatballs

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2005
This indeed did have a very different flavor. I did spice up the meatballs (used a combination of pork and lean beef, a clove of crushed garlic, 1/3 cup chopped parsley and soy sauce as well as about 2 TBS of cream). I did have to add a bit of water to get the sauce to cover all the meatballs. It didnt hurt anything.

Wonderful Fried Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2005
This recipe was wonderful after I added seasoning salt, pepper, and garlic powder to the batter. I did not serve it with a salsa but rather a mix of chopped tomatoes, cilantro and onion (no juices) and made a sauce of mayo, lime juice, fresh crushed garlic, diced jalapeno, and chili powder. The sauce and that bit of flavor punch makes all the difference. Add some shredded jack cheese to the tacos too!

Real Italian Calzones

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2005
My boyfriend could not believe that I made the crust for these. It turned out so well! I added extra cheese and used fresh basil. I diced the mushrooms and added diced red pepper as well. I have also used this crust recipe and filled it with ham and cheese and served it with a honey mustard sauce for dipping. So many things you can do with this recipe. Wonderful.

Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2005
I have made this several times. I do use less butter and a bit less lemon (it just tastes better that way), and recommend using more eggs for more merengue and thus a more impressive look. I serve this on a graham cracker crust.

Whipped Shortbread Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2005
The cookies are amazing! But I do tweak the recipe by adding 1 tsp pure vanilla extract, and baking on parchment paper at 325 for 9 minutes (my oven runs a bit hot). Be sure to dry the cherries between paper towels or the color will bleed into the cookies. Yummy topped with a Hershey's Kiss or Hug, or a dollop of apricot or raspberry jam as well. These are easy crowd pleasers.

Hot Fudge Sauce I

Reviewed: May 2, 2005
Too sweet and too thin. I only added TWO cups of sugar and we couldn't handle it. What a waste.

Caesar Salad I

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2005
I was very disappointed in the dressing. While it has all the ingredients of a true Caesar Salad, the proportions are way off and the dressing came out runny and tasting like a mustard vinagrette.

Chicken Pot Pies with Puff Pastry

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2005
Very good but I did tweak the recipe. I sauteed cubed chicken in lots of garlic and half a diced white onion, used only 3 cups stock, and added fresh raw veggies (potato, celery, parsley, carrots). For spices I added poultry seasoning and dried mustard. I agree the cheese is optional but its a nice surprise at the end.

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2004
This is a lovely sauce - I sautee the minced garlic in olive oil for a few seconds then add the tomato paste to the sauce. Instead of anchovies I add 1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce. I cook it on low heat for 30 then let sit - it needs time for flavors to devlop. I find it does become less sweet with time. I also only add crushed pepper, no cayenne.

Sweet and Spicy Nuts

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2004
Interesting and different flavor. I was afraid the spices and salt would be overpowering so measured exactly to recipe. Next time I think I will add a bit more. This makes a very mellow flavor as is. Only thing I changed was using a can of Planter's mixed nuts of cashews, almonds, hazelnuts and pecans (no peanuts but Im sure it would be good too)

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2004
I really enjoy using this as a base recipe - I add fresh crushed garlic, lots of pepper, 1/2 tsp chicken bullion and a dash of cayenne to the milk mixture. I do not add the cheese to the milk mixture, rather I top the recipe with cheddar and parmesan cheese and a sprinkle of paprika for a greast presentation. For extra flavor add cubed ham or fresh parsley. Its a great recipe!
