Cranberry-Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
Great holiday cookies! I had a Cookie Exchange on my birthday and shared these cookies with everyone. They loved them as much as I did. My husband also enjoys them since they are not overly sweet. They are perfect with morning coffee and afternoon tea or as an 'in between' snack. I didn't ice them until the following day since they get very moist in the storage container. I read another review where their batch turned into a gooey mess overnight. Not airing them appropriately and/or icing them prior to storage adds additional moisture so don't ice them until day 2 if you're not going to eat them right away.

Sushi Roll

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2006
These were great! Tip: For the section of the recipe that calls for adding/blending the rice vinegar, sugar and salt mixture into the rice pan - do the opposite. Remove the rice from the pan and mix it into a large bowl of the rice vinegar, sugar ,and salt blend. By doing this you won't scorch your rice when the sugary mixture meets the hot bottom of the pan. This may have been what happened to the one reviewer who said her rice scorches each time she's made it. This also helps the rice to cool faster. :o)

South Beach Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2005
Divine! I love salads and am always looking for new and refreshing ways to serve them. I didn't know anything about hearts of palm until I found this recipe and now I can't be parted with them! This is a "must-have" twice weekly, in place of my standard dinner fare. It's a light break from the same old grind and a real treat after a workout.

Focaccia Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2004
We made several batches of this "flat bread" on Christmas eve for all of our guests that were coming over on Christmas Day. We paired each loaf with a tub of the Tuscan Cream Cheese Spread as gifts for everyone and it was a hit. We made one very minor change: instead of making them into a rectangular shape, we shaped them into flat rounds. The bread turns out very dense and the aroma in the kitchen is exquisite! Very similar to the restaurant variety only better because you make it yourself (and can customize it by adding only the herbs you like.) It's an excellent appetizer served with a small bowl of olive oil and balsamic vinegar for dipping or as-is with chunks of ham and aged cheese. Simply devine with a hot bowl of tomato soup - the herb flavors in the bread enhance the tomato. This definitely earned 5 stars!

Tuscan Cream Cheese Spread

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2004
One word - AWESOME! The flavors are simply superb! Hubby and I made this while baking herbed Focaccia bread today. The aroma in the kitchen was heavenly! We would make the suggestion that if you do not have a food processor or manual chopper, then allow yourself at least an hour of prep time for hand chopping everything. The sun dried tomatoes, if not purchased already sliced/diced, will take a long time to cut. We used shears to cut them into strips, then cut them again crosswise into diced-size pieces. We found this to be easier than using a knife. Also, remove the outer layer or two of leaves on the artichokes; even the canned/jarred hearts can have tough leaves still attached. We changed the recipe slightly by using only the green portion of 5 green onions and left out the chives (they weren't available) and it was devine. We made additional tubs of spread to give out tomorrow with the Focaccia bread as Christmas gifts for visiting relatives. Can't wait to see their smiles! Merry Christmas everyone!
