Sausage Stuffed Jalapenos

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2007
I made 70 of these with spicy turkey sausage for a Thanksgiving Potluck. They were wonderful and the first item emptied. I wore gloves while halving and used a grapefruit spoon to clean out the seeds. I also wrapped each in 1/2 slice of bacon. I cooked them on the broiler pan with aluminum foil on the bottom - not greasy at all and hardly any clean up. My husband's(and his coworkers) new favorite!

Almond-Raspberry Meringue Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
These were yummy. The almond paste made a nice taste in the crust. They baked up beautiful and cut nicely once cooled.

Mary Oppenhiemer's Butter Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
This cake recipe is great. After reading the reviews I tried it because I wanted a cake that would hold its shape for and April Fool's Day spaghetti cake. It was perfect, sturdy but fluffy, moist and rich tasting. I covered it with a buttercream frosting and strawberry jelly (for the spaghetti sauce) and cocoa-krispy treat meatballs. I can definitely see this cake used as a wedding cake!

Easy Morning Glory Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
Theses were amazing. So moist and tasty. I did most of the changes other reviewers suggested: I used 1/2 cup of applesauce and 1/2 cup of crushed pineapple for the oil, and I used 1/2 a cup of whole wheat flour and 1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour. I also cut the sugar down to 3/4 cups of brown sugar. I mixed it all by hand. The recipe made 18 beautiful, pretty healthy, moist and yummy muffins. I did not use muffin papers and used none-stick spray in the tin. Pulled out of the oven after 20 minutes. Thanks so much!

Apple Cream Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2010
This cake came out beautiful. It held it's shape well and was a pleasure to cut and eat. I made it to the recipe, except I used oatmeal instead of walnuts and 1/2 cup of brown sugar for the topping and 1/2 cup brown and 1/2 cup white sugar in the batter. Oh and after spreading the bottom half and putting on the apples and 1/2 the topping, I added 1 Tablespoon of milk to the batter to help spread it easily. I also did not have a tubed spring form, so put it in a round spring form, and after 40 minutes of baking, I shut off the oven and kept it in for 15 minutes more. The color was perfect and it cooked through nicely.

Meatloaf with Fried Onions and Ranch Seasoning

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
I have tried so many different Meatloaf recipes, that my family never knows what to expect. But everyone said this was the best meatloaf I have ever served. Moist, flavorful and it held it's shape. Although the canned fried onions don't stand out like you think they will, they add a nice soft onion taste to the meatloaf. I also used the whole ranch packet, because I never use up the halves. No one drowned their piece in ketchup like they usually do, in fact no one even used any ketchup. This will be my go-to meatloaf recipe.

Corn Spoon Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2009
I brought this to a potluck and while sitting at the table a murmur started around the room. "Who made the corn?" When people found out I made it, lots of people requested the recipe for Thanksgiving. I made the recipe as written, but doubled it, and added 1 teaspoon of vanilla and used 1 stick of butter. I cooked it in the crockpot for 4 hours, then put it in the oven at 350 for about half an hour to brown the top.

Double Caramel-Pecan Cheesecake Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2009
This cheesecake was yummy and extremely easy to make. I made a mistake in measuring, so ended up having to double the recipe, which was actually a good thing because it was gone quickly when my husband brought it to work. I ended up making a 9 X 13 inch rectangular pan and a 7 X 11 brownie pan. They came out light and tasty. I did use the melted caramels in the cake, but drizzled caramel sundae sauce over the top.

Asian Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2009
Made this pretty much to the recipe, except that I doubled it, used boneless chicken thighs and added a pack of mixed frozen broccoli, cauliflower and carrots. I fried the chicken in batches, and when done put them in a 350 oven to stay warm and crispy. With 3 teenagers, by the next morning there was not a piece left. They all exclaimed how good it was - even better than Chinese takeout.

Greek Honey Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
Yummy! Yummy! This cake was so good. It was moist, rich and fluffy! I made it exactly to the recipe, it was easy, fast and yummy. Even the clean-up was easy. The only problem I had was trying not to eat too much!

Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2008
I make this salad every night before our big parties, to give the flavors time to blend. It is always well recieved - many people just can't stop eating it. I make it exactly to the recipe and it always gets rave reviews.

Greek Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2008
I make this pasta salad every time we have a large party (which is often) or a potluck. It is a welcome change to pasta salad, and it is usually completely gone by the end of the evening. I also use olive oil, fresh minced garlic and dried oregano. Then sprinkle the whole thing with feta cheese. Always a winner!

Sweet and Spicy Soup with Black-Eyed Peas and Sweet Potato

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2008
We really liked this soup. I followed the directions pretty closely, But used real onion and garlic, not dried and did put in most of the other seasonings, all fresh, though. I also used fresh baked sweet potatoes and used less water. I also put in shredded chicken. It really hit the spot!

Passover Chocolate Mandelbrot

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2008
These were really good. I also baked the 2 loaves, then sliced them after they baked for 55 minutes, sprinkled on more cinnamon sugar and then baked on each side for an additional 10 minutesper side. I made them for my Jewish friends for Passover. Everybody loved them. I will be making another batch tomorrow to keep! I am also going to try cranberries and white chocolate.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2008
Started making this to marinate, and then had an emergency and had to leave. So I put it all in the crockpot. 4 hours later it was perfect...my daughter's favorite meal is teriyaki chicken, and she said this was the best ever. Gobbled up the juice on white rice.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2007
Add another 5 star review. These muffins were wonderful - just the right sweetness, moist and blueberry-y. I doubled the recipe and made 12 very large muffins. I let them sit on a rack for about 30 minutes before removing from the greased muffin tin, not one stuck or broke, all 12 came out beautiful!

California Roll Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2009
This is one of my favorite salads. It is so easy, different and tasty. I use the wasabi paste in a tube from the oriental food aisle or sometimes by the fresh salad section. I also add some sugared ginger sprinkled on top, and some grated ginger in the dressing. Sushi is all about the ginger for me! I usually don't mix in the lettuce, but put the salad on a bed of lettuce for people to take if they want. I also tried adding the sushi seaweed sheets chopped up and mixed in- did not like it at all.

Spinach Tomato Tortellini

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2007
This is a really nice, easy recipe that looks beautiful and tastes better than I've gotten in some restaurants. I basically followed the recipe, but had no fresh spinach, so used half a box of frozen. Everyone loved it!
