Best Tuna Melt (New Jersey Diner Style)

Reviewed: May 19, 2011
This was my first time to make a tuna melt!!!!!! and decided to prepare it for friends for lunch. Everyone loved it and definitely the Red Wine vinegar makes a big difference. Also rye bread enhances the flavor. Even my husband like it and he really isn t keen on canned tuna.

Fast Chicken Soup Base

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
Very happy to get this recipe but prefer to chill it after cooking (before adding other ingredients). This mean making it either early in the day or the previous evening but then you can skim off any fat that has accumulated. Also, we feel it has a better flavor.

Bee Lian's Rich Orange Cake

Reviewed: May 14, 2011
Absolutely love this simple cake - guess loving orange flavor does help, but this is really an almost perfect mixture and I thank you for submitting. Very good with 7 minute icing.

Stuffed Zucchini with Chicken Sausage

Reviewed: May 12, 2011
This is an extremely tasty dish but had no idea what size of zucchini to use hence had leftover filling. Maybe the contributor could enlighten everyone as to the size of the vegetable. Again, the filling is wonderful.

Mother's Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 8, 2011
There seem to be a lot of complaints about this bread being dry . I always cream butter and sugar very well, add eggs one at a time and the very ripe bananas alternately with flour, but do not overmix. Has never been dry and my only concusion is that others may have overbaked it.

Asparagus Quiche

Reviewed: May 6, 2011
We love fresh asparagus and indulge in it as often as possible. Roasting seems to be better, but either way this is a great recipe. Have a suggestion to replace the bacon and that is to use about 1/4 - 1/2 cup of slivered smoked salmon plus some dill for seasoning. Thanks for a nice addition to my files.

Tres Leches III

Reviewed: May 5, 2011
This is an excellent cake and sorry that it was not a success for a lot of you. Unfortunately, for this type of cake, you require time and patience and cannot be made in a hurry. Instructions need to be followed exactly and the result of all your labors is worth it. As to the controversy between hand mixers and standing ones I have used both and it can be made with a hand mixer successfully - just requires more time and patience.

Shortbread

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2011
Amazed there are not more shortbread recipes around with rice flour - these are the most authentic and gives that wonderful texture that can t be accomplished otherwise. Thanks for a great recipe - very similar to what I have used for years and won many prices for same.

Pork Tenderloin with a Honey Grape Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2011
Great company fare but make sure they like the flavor of 5 spice powder. This is certainly not for everyone but the end result (if you like this spice) is wonderful.

Rougemont Applesauce Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
For us this is an excellent applesauce cake. some recipes are more like breads but because pf the cake and pastry flour this is definitely a cake. Much lighter than most and keeps so well. I do make it with half shortening and half butter because of flavor. Thanks for a lovely addition to my files.

Crunchy Apple Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2011
Love this bread but read the other reviews first so decided to use butter rather than shortening. No way was it dry and very flavorful. Also used concentrated forzen (thawed) orange just to give it a little more kick. Butter always seems to give such a much better texture and flavor over shortening. Thanks for a lovely addition to my files.

Gingerbread Scones

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2010
I love scones, ginger and molasses but, as some reviewers said, they are a little dry. Sorry for giving them a lower rating but I feel that the following is an improvement: use 1 whole large egg and substitute 1/3 cup of sour cream for milk (possibly more to get the right consistency). Have made this version many times with no problem. Good luck......

Molasses Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2010
Wonderful cake but you have to like molasses. Did cut sugar in half (molasses is sweet enough). From reading the ingredients it is very apparent it is for molasses lovers only and if you want to cut back on the molasses flavor subsitute corn syrup.

Welsh Cakes

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2010
Excellent recipe for Welsh cakes for those who have never heard of them. This one works well because several on this site do not. Enjoy, especially hot with lots of butter and preserves.

Welsh Tea Cakes

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2010
Unfortunately the directions are not clear enough especially when people have never had Welsh tea cake. Definitely make on a griddle - otherwise the results are far from good.

Steak House Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
This is our all time favorite - actually a classic as far as I know. Sometimes I add fresh rosemary depending on what I am serving. Difficult to judge exactly how long they take to bake because it depends on what type of potato I use but do prefer not to precook.

Carrot Broccoli Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
We like this very much but, as someone else said, can use less butter (or oil). This is meant to be an easy simple side dish which I never seem to have enough of. Sessoning could be changed to suit individual tastes and my suggestions would be fresh dill or oregano Use your imagination.

Rich Chocolate Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
Very good brownie and so easy to make. I too, like another reviewer, omitted the baking powder. Have never cared for baking powder in a brownie becuase I feel it affects the texture. For the reviewer (first time brownie maker) please, please measure exactly and follow instructions. I promise you that with a little practice you will be able to make perfect brownies - do not overbake because that was my big mistake at first.

Spiced D'Anjou Pear Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2010
Finally a pear bread where I don't have to watch the pears rippen (so difficult to find them just when you want them). If I am out of molasses I substitute corn syrup which works fine. Thanks for a great addition to my files

French Fruitcake

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2010
This is definitely our kind of cake because we do like all the fruits. This also keeps well (wrapped in foil) - can also drizzle some rum over the top after it is baked. I did make one change and that was to subsitute corn syrup for honey (no honey lovers here) which works fine. Highly recommend this little fruit cake.
