Penne with Asparagus and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2006
Just finished scraping the last of this sauce off the pan - yum!! I used less olive oil and fresh tomatoes plus a little tomato puree since I didn't have canned - taste was so good before the cream that I almost didn't add it! But it was awesome with the cream too. Served it over chicken cooked with salt, pepper and a little paprika. Thanks Anita! :)

Cream Cheese Pound Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2005
SOOO GOOD!!!! I live in Peru and there's no cake flour here, so I used 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour + 1/2 cup conrstarch. Also, I was out of almond extract so I added the rind of 2 oranges... wonderful, it's going straight to the family recipe book :)

Fettuccine Alfredo V

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2005
the taste is good but very very rich, maybe it'd be better off with a little less cheese... I wasn't able to finish my plate :(

Best Bruschetta Ever

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2005
I made this for my fiance's b-day party and it was a huge hit... I did make a few changes though: halved the parmesan and the olive oil, and subbed dried for fresh basil (and added a little extra for color). I didn't let it rest more than 1 hour and it still tasted great :)

Garlic Parmesan Olives

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2005
I actually hate olives, but I made these for my mom who's a big olive fan and she loved them. (For all I can say, they smelled really good.) My mom gives it 4 stars because even though they're really good, they're not something you can eat a whole lot of in one sitting.

Tuppakaka

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2005
definitely the quickest and easieast cake I've ever made! I added 1/2 tsp. vanilla and topped mine with ground pecans instead of the almonds (like pecans better) -- it doesn't rise much, but the taste is pretty good.

Dad's Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2005
I found this recipe about 6 years ago on this site and it has become one of our absolute family favorites ever since -- I love spices and these are ohh sooo good!!! perfect taste, chewy on the inside and with a slight crunch on the outside. I usually prepare the batter and freeze it up in little balls -- just pop them in the oven for a quick treat :)
