Popovers

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2005
Excellent recipe. I tested some variations with 3 of the 6 popover cups. For 3 I preheated the custard cups with a small dab of butter in each. Those 3 rose higher and came out of the cups more easily than the 3 that were not preheated and did not have the dab of butter in the bottom (before adding the batter). Also, to prevent the likelihood of getting too dark, I reduced the temp to 350 after 15 minutes and then reduced the 350 bake time to 15 minutes.

Bev's Chocolate Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2005
Perfect recipe that cannot fail if it is followed exactly as written. To avoid spilling the pie filling while carrying the filled pie plate to the overn, you can fill the pie plate after setting it in position on the oven rack. Also, watch the meringue careful as when it starts to turn golden it happens quickly. Mine baked perfectly and set at 40 minutes. Try this recipe. You can't go wrong!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2005
Perfect recipe and filled the 9x13" pan well. The topping was crumbly and sweet and it was ready after 45 minutes of baking. Making the apple crisp is a good task to share with your child. One can peel while another slices the apples. One variation I used was straining the juice of one lemon onto the apples in the baking pan. Stirring the apples into the lemon juice kept the apples looking fresh and added a nice flavor. Invite your parents or neighbors over and enjoy the apple crisp on vanilla ice-cream!

Grilled Potatoes and Onion

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2005
Very easy recipe but provides an alternative to the more common mashed potato without taking any more time. I sprayed aluminum foil and double wrapped them. The double wrapping was definitely not necessary. I put the cut veggies in a bowl (adding some cut-up sweet peppers) and added a little olive oil and spices, stirred it around and then spooned the mixture onto six lengths of foil. On two I also added some Old Bay seasoning; on another two I added a creole seasoning; and for the third set of two I added lemon pepper. That was a good way to test seasoning alternatives. I also put a couple fresh basil leaves on each before dotting with butter and rolling them up, folding the edges tightly to prevent leaks. After half an hour max (started before the steaks were put on the grill) I opened the ends of the foil packages and everything slid out beautifully onto the serving plates. I had marked each package to know which had what type seasoning. Results? They all tasted great!

Rice, Asparagus and Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2005
Nice change for a salad and a different idea for using asparagus. I served it on each dinner plate on a couple Bibb lettuce leaves rather than lining the serving bowl with lettuce. The dressing was flavorful but could easily have been doubled and would have been better. Fresh dill is a key. It is nice that this recipe can be prepared in advance and refrigerated while working on the rest of the meal preparation.

Insalata Caprese II

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2005
A frequent and easy salad prepared in our home. Only addition is to add balsamic vinegar in an amount equal to the olive oil. We generally use smaller rather than large tomatoes and cut the fresh mozzarella and tomatoes a bit thinner. Easy to serve with a small flat spatula. Fresh basil is a key!

Rainbow Trout with Yogurt Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2005
Very easy and quick to prepare, not requiring any dipping and breading or marinading as do many other fish recipes. The yogurt sauce is quick to prepare and is fresh and cool tasting. Follow the recipe exactly and they'll be asking for more! I broiled the trout fillets, skin-side down, and in 10 minutes they were perfect and did not stick to the (cookie sheet) pan.

Blue Ribbon Overnight Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2005
Excellent and fairly easy recipe for fresh, warm dinner rolls. A big tip: when rolling out the dough, roll it on a floured surface and dust the rolling pin with flour; otherwise you may have a sticky mess! Also, I had everyone at the table by the time the first pan came out of the oven, and put the second pan of 12 in the oven at that time so when everyone was ready for seconds, they were right hot from the oven. Also, I reduced the temperature to 325 so they would not brown quite as quickly. Instead of putting on greased baking pans, I put the crescent-shaped rolls on brown parchment paper lined pans.

Rosemary Roasted Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2005
It was definitely a weird experience putting the spices between the skin and body of the turkey but it worked really easily because I used long yellow plastic gloves. Yes, I was a sight to behold with apron and long yellow gloves but it got the job done! I mixed the fresh spices in a salad dressing jar the night before and shook it well to allow the flavors to work into the oil. That also saved prep time on roasting day and allowed the flavored oil to be easily poured where it was to go. I started the roast breast side down and tented it with aluminum foil after it browned nicely. After 2 hours I turned it breast side up and tented it after it browned. Earlier I pulled the wings away from the body to ensure the area under them browned as well. I used the oven probe the last hour or two (of slightly more than 4 hours for the 15 pounder) and it was perfect color and moistness at 180 degrees.

Turkey Tetrazzini Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2005
Excellent and easy recipe to make. I used leftover Thanksgiving turkey, preparing everything the night before so all that had to be done was bake it the next night for dinner. I left out the salt as the broth was salty enough. I used two small cans of mushrooms as I was out of fresh. Also, I put a layer of french fried onion rings on the top for the last 5 minutes of baking and that provided a wonderful flavor and texture. Definitely do that! Also, I baked it at 375 instead of 400 which seemed a bit high. Finally, I used a 16 ounce box of angel hair pasta but had much of it left over after filling the 13x9" baking dish. So the unused cooked spaghetti provides a starter for another meal!

Broccoli Soup II

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2005
Quite easy and pretty quick, too! Perfect for a wintery day. I also cut up and used the broccoli stalks. I would recommend using a low-sodium broth to reduce to salty taste. A spoon of sour cream would also be nice to add on top when serving.

Dijon Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2005
Nice change of flavor. I used red-skin potatoes and mashed them with peels on and that worked well (besides the time saving)! Excellent taste and texture. Quick and easy to prepare. Try it for something different!

Chocolate Lovers' Favorite Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2005
Quick and easy and excellent. What else could you want?! Kind of scary using a full two sticks of butter and 2 cups of sour cream and 2 cups of chocolate chips but hey, you don't eat it all (at once)! A definite winner!

Chicken and Vegetable Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2006
Excellent, easy recipe. Could save time by preparing veggies the night before. The sauce was minimal so next time I will make more of that. Good way to clean out veggies from the refrigerator. Will make again!

Potato Leek Soup III

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2006
Quick and easy, particularly if you can find someone to prepare the potatoes while you're working on the leeks. We added a little Tobasco and white pepper for flavor and topped the bowls with sour cream. Used only 1/4 cup of butter and that was sufficient. Enjoy!

Sauteed Garlic Asparagus

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2006
Quick, easy, and a nice variation. I also added a cut-up onion and sliced fresh mushrooms. This is one that can be started as you're calling people to the table! Enjoy!

Blackened Tuna

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2006
There is nothing quicker and easier! Everyone loved it! I coated the fish earlier in the day and gave it another coat just before cooking. I have a well-ventilated cooktop and had no problem of smoke in the kitchen that others reported.

Fish Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2006
Very good and easy. I used a can of crab meat and that was perfect for the 3 large sole fillets used. Also used green onions for flavor and color and fresh lemon juice. The fish did not seem quite finished after 17 minutes so I took the foil off and finished it under the broiler to ensure it was done -- and it turned out perfectly. I left out the butter as there was enough that melted out from the cooked stuffing mixture.

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2006
Excellent way to use up vegetables in the fridge. I added leeks, orange and yellow peppers, and celery. To shorten the baking time I microwaved the vegetables and then roasted them until browned after they were softened by the microwave cooking.

Cathy's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2006
Excellent taste and texture. Sour cream is a nice added ingredient. I used three bananas. Also used half brown and half white sugar. Added chopped pecans and chocolate chips. Skip the loaf pan and use a bundt pan for a nicer presentation. I sprayed the bundt pan and the bread came out perfectly and looks as good as it tastes. Throw away the dry recipes and use this one!
