Pizza Sauce and Dough

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2005
I gave this no stars b/c I only used the sauce recipe. It turned out just o.k., I think it needed something. I increased the seasonings, like others mentioned and added a teaspoon of sugar to help with the bitterness, but it still wasn't impressive. I will be trying the dough recipe next time though…thanks anyway.

Pizza Dough II

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2005
I'm very disappointed by this recipe. Since it was featured in an Allrecipe's cookbook and had such high rating, I had to try it. I had no problem with the prep, rising, etc., but when we tasted it, it was more like wheat bread with pizza toppings. If you're looking for traditional pizza dough, this is not it. The consistency is like bread, not dough...maybe from the bread flour. Also, dough takes longer to cook than toppings and is puffy and soggy. I won't be making this again.

Easy Cream Cheese Danish

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2005
This came out perfect with (like others mentioned) half the filling mixture. Next time I may even use a little less than half of the sugar (like 1/3 cup). I laid the crescent unrolled and flat into the baking dish, topped with cream cheese mixture, then made three "stripes" with strawberry pie filling. I topped it with the second unrolled crescent roll and left some of the filling show, then made three "stripes" of pie filling on the top. Baked for 25 minutes and it was pretty and tasty!! Also, I used 3/4 cup of powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons of milk for the topping so it would drizzle. Next time I'll try the slicing method.

Quick Clam Spaghetti

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2005
This was really good. I used fresh clams because I had them on hand and a bottle of clam juice and it turned out fine. Thanks for the recipe!

Clams Casino

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2005
This is a recipe, as others said, for stuffed clams. I used 24 small clams, put them in their shell whole, then topped with the mixture to make it more like clams casino. I only used about 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs, as someone suggested, and it turned out to be the perfect amount of topping for my clams. Also, it took about 10 minutes for my clams to open in the oven. Very tasty though...my boyfriend gobbled them all up by the end of the night.

Pasta e Fagioli I

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2005
I was looking for a simple pasta e fagioli recipe like my Italian boss makes and I've found it! I doubled the recipe, except for the tomatoes, and used 2 cans of Italian diced tomatoes instead of stewed, like others suggested. I drained and rinced my cannellini beans (I can't stand that "grit"). Also, I cooked dilatini pasta separately (in chicken stock) and added to each bowl, like my boss does, so it wouldn't get mushy...very yummy!!

Tomato Florentine Soup I

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2005
This soup was o.k. I didn't have nutmeg, so maybe that was why the flavor was lacking. I thought there was WAY too much spinach and I love spinach! Also, I added about 2 cups of cooked Campanelle pasta and you could still barely tell there was pasta in it. I think this recipe needs some tweeking...thanks anyway.

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2005
I made this last night and my boyfriend and I loved it! The sauce was delicious, although I recommend a good, strong white wine (I used the box kind *cringe* and it turned out a little bland - it may have been better had I reduced it before adding the cream or I could have added a little thyme *shrug*). I also recommend half butter, half olive oil so the butter doesn't burn. Great dish, thanks for sharing!

Velveeta® Tuna Mac

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2005
I don't usually like warm tuna or tuna casseroles, but this was suprisingly good. I'll be making it again.

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2005
This is a great recipe. It can be played with a little and still turn out great. My favorite variation is to spice it up a little and use prosciutto and horseradish cheese - delicious.

Corn Chowder - Fast and Great

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2005
While my boyfriend raved about this soup, I'd have to say it was just o.k. I used larger cans of corn, as I couldn't find the size specified. I also used some flour/water paste before adding the cream to help thicken it up as someone else mentioned - It was quite brothy. The result was somewhat bland - maybe next time I'll try adding some thyme or a bay leaf to give it some flavor.

Hot Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2005
This recipe is great on it's own, but I've also made it by adding a little chopped spinach and mozzarella cheese. YUMMY!
