THE Pasta Salad

Reviewed: May 28, 2012
I don't understand what all THE big fuss is about. Followed the recipe exactly. This dish does not have a lot of flavor. Needs something.

Martha's Hot Almond Spread

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2011
Always good for a party. You can add some garlic powder as well. I use a small oblong glass pan to heat it in.

What a great idea!!! I'm thinking that you could use this technique at any holiday --- just switch up the colors. My daughter really enjoyed making them. Thanks for the recipe!!!!

Potato and Cheese Pierogi

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
Just wanted to share a tip that I have learned after making Pierogis for the last 10 years. Cook the potatoes until soft . Don't use a mixer to mix up the potatoes ... use a RICER and pass all the potatoes through it, then add the cheese and whatever seasoning (I use garlic powder). Mix with your hands until the mixture changes color. Also, don't fool around with the wet spoon to seal the edges. User your fingers. Isn't that part of the fun of cooking??? Let the dough rest covered at room temp before making circles. Keep the size of the dough you are working with to about the size of a grapefruit.

Beef Fondue with Sauces

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2009
Made this for my daughter's bday. This recipe brought back fond memories. My mother used to make a bunch of sauces with our fondue as a kid. (Don't think curry was popular in the early 70s tho'. Boy were we really missing something good back then !) Anyway I also made a white horseradish sauce: sour cream, horseradish and some grated onion. All great. Thanks !

Grilled Mexican Steak

Reviewed: May 25, 2009
Made for Cinco de Mayo -- and got rave reviews from the entire crowd. I used a london broil instead of skirt steak. Kept the rest of the recipe the same.

Tantalizing Turkey and Blue Cheese Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2009
I was hoping that these would be a little better. I make turkey meatballs all the time ... and I thought I would try these as something different. I just used whole eggs .. not the egg whites. Also, I wanted these for in a crock pot, so I made a swedish meatball sauce to go with the meatballs. Crowd seemed to like them. Probably won't make them again.

Polish Pickles

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
The quality of these really depends upon the quality of the pickles. I like to use barrel pickles. I used turkey ham. Very good. Friend told me I had to make them everyytime for football games !

Summer Beer I

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
Really liked this. Made a few batches and froze it in a large plastic bucket (like the ones that you buy those make and freeze margharitas in). Great for the summer time.

Easy Pasta Fagioli

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
I followed this recipe to a t. Whole family enjoyed. My 8 year old is a huge soup fan. This soup is better the next day than it is on the day you make. The pasta does soak up the liquid. When I reheated - usually cup by cup -- I added a little bit of water to make it more soupy.

Heavenly Blueberry Smoothie

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2009
Made this with some kind of mushy blueberries .. and it turned out great. Didn't freeze the banana. Used regular plain yogurt but added some vanilla. Also didn't have any flax seed. Even 8 year old liked it. I'm going to freeze what is left and eat it as a substitute for ice cream.

Cheese Potato Puff

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
I wouldn't bother with this one. Might as well make plain mashed potatoes. We found this recipe dry and lacking taste. Kind of a shame since I was hoping to use this as a make a day ahead mashed potatoes.

Creme Brulee French Toast

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
I have tried numerous baked french toast recipes .. and never really cared for them. Not the case with this one. This one is a keeper. The "creme brulee" at the bottom is what makes the difference. I added triple sec since I didn't have any Grand Marnier. I imagine you could use any flavored liquor. I also kept the crust on the bread. Once I finished putting the pan together, I topped the bread with a little maple syrup. Really good recipe, and scales down well !

Oklahoma Cheese Grits

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
I make this every year at Xmas -- a tradition in this Northern home ! I usually use the Microwave directions for the grits .. and use a large 8 cup pyrex dish. You can mix it all together in the pyrex dish before transferring to baking dish. I always use bagged shredded sharp cheddar instead of processed. And I use garlic salt not seasoned salt. Delicious !
