Sausage Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
I followed the directions exactly, but after an hour of cooking, the rice was still hard. I cooked it for 2.5 hours, and still only some of the rice was soft, and the edges were burned. I will say that the flavors were wonderful, and I wish it had worked. I will try it again in the future, but I will cook the rice first and just heat everything together in the oven.

Artichokes in a Garlic and Olive Oil Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2008
It seems a little silly to review this recipe, since I changed so many things. Still, the result was very good, so I'll just detail the changes. I used 8 ounces of pasta, 2 T. of olive oil, and left the butter out entirely. 3 cloves of garlic, dried basil instead of fresh, and a 12 ounce package of frozen artichoke hearts instead of the canned ones. I added salt and pepper to taste, and at the last minute when I mixed everything together with the pasta, I added 4 ounces of cream cheese. I served it with parmesan cheese, and it was REALLY good. Do be sure to cook the artichokes until they're just starting to brown - the flavor is more intense that way.

Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
This recipe was quite good, although I did find that I needed to double the mayonnaise in order to get the right consistency. Otherwise I followed the recipe as written, and everyone enjoyed the result.

Fresh Orange Refrigerator Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2008
I didn't make this into a "cake" with the lady fingers - instead I just made the filling and let it set up in little individual cups. It makes a lovely dessert. Next time I might choose to use a little more sugar - evidently my oranges were a little sour and so the result has a very strong tangy flavor. It is good, but might be better with a bit more sweetener. Overall we liked it a lot and will be making this again!

Broccoli and Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
This is a good "help, I need a quick dinner!" sort of meal, but not something I'd ever use for guests. I made a couple of changes based on the previous reviewer, and I think they helped. I used 4 cups of pre-cooked wild rice, 1 can of 98% fat free cream of chicken soup, 8 ounces of velveeta cheese, and the broccoli. Mixed it all together, heated it up, added the steamed broccoli, and served it. Start to finish it took about 25 minutes. So if you're in a big hurry (and especially if you already have cooked rice to use up), this is a pretty decent meal.

Double Nut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2007
Very nice, simple recipe for cake mix cookies. I used 1/2 a cup of chocolate chips and skipped the almonds (I didn't have any). They baked to a perfect not-too-soft/not-too-crispy cookie in 9 minutes as stated.

Ranch Ham Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2007
This recipe was most helpful in that it told me what proportions I should use for the cream cheese and the ranch dressing mix. Past that, I made quite a few changes. 1) I used oven-roasted deli turkey instead of the ham. 2) I left out the green onions (the ranch flavoring I used had a pretty strong onion tendency and I thought it would be overpowering). 3) I also added baby spinach leaves to the roll-ups - it added some lovely color to the final result and was healthy too! 4) Finally I used flavored/colored wrap tortillas (also for the color/health benefit). I took these to a potluck and they were gone in minutes! :)

Mocha Coffee

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2007
Contrary to most of the other reviewers, I don't think this recipe as written is anything close to Starbucks. However, it is a good starting point. I'd recommend these changes: 1) Use about 1/2 a cup of extra strong coffee, instead of a full cup of regular. Brew with the same amount of grounds, just half as much water. This mimics espresso. 2) Use a lot more milk. Starbucks mochas are mostly milk, with espresso added. 3) Do use the full tablespoon of both chocolate and sugar. With these changes it came much closer to approximating a Starbucks mocha. I enjoyed it!

Monte Cristo Sandwiches

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
This is VERY good - just the right blend of sweet and spicy. I used smoked deli turkey for the meat, and served it with a dusting of powdered sugar. Highly recommended - my husband and son loved it!

Broccoli Cheese Crepes

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2007
Good but not great. I think they need a little more flavor - perhaps more worchestershire or more mustard (although I did use more mustard than was called for!) Also, this didn't make very much. I had planned it for a meal, but had to supplement with bread/butter and extra fruit because it wasn't enough food. In the future I'd probably 1/2 again or double it.

Feta Cheese Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2007
I found this to be too strong. Perhaps with more potatoes or less feta it would be better.

Breakfast Burritos

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2007
These were really, really good - definitely one I'll file and repeat. I used savory navy beans instead of refried beans because those are what I had, and they worked quite well. I also added chopped fresh tomatoes because we like them. Recommended!

The Very Best Burgers!

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2007
These burgers taste wonderful - moist and flavorful. However, they don't hold together well at all; they fall into pieces when trying to flip them on the grill. Still, I'll make them again.

Pesto Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
Quick and easy, and oh so good! I know that pesto is usually made with pine nuts, but this didn't really taste any different to me and walnuts are much cheaper. Highly recommended!

Hamburger Cheese Bake

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2007
This is the same recipe that my mom always used when I was a kid. It was always my favorite, and I requested it for birthday dinners. When I make it now I always wish I could eat the whole pan. :)

Persimmon Bread III

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2006
I made this bread according to the directions, adding about 3/4 cup of chopped nuts as well. The result tastes good, but be warned that it is VERY dense and heavy. More so than a normal banana bread or pumpkin bread. I was thinking of giving these for gifts, but I have to say that I don't think they're good enough for that. Time to try a different recipe!

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2006
Wow! The orange juice adds a tiny tang to the sweet potatos that is just fantastic. Highly recommended! This is also very good without the marshmallows on top, if you want to make it a bit healthier.

Best of the Best Blueberry Muffins

Amazing! These are light, fluffy, and with just the right touch of blueberry sweetness. Better than restaurants.

Creamy Dreamy Chicken and Spirals Casserole

Reviewed: May 6, 2005
Fantastic! Can be made without the butter crackers and additional butter (in the topping) for a little less fat and its just as good.
