Caprese Appetizer

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2014
I made these for Christmas Eve. I bought the mozzarella balls that are seasoned. I cut the tomatoes and cheese balls in half. I put a tomato half on each side of the cheese ball with the fresh basil in between. I was not sure how these would manage being marinated, but next time I will marinate more. I saved the cheese marinade, added some balsamic vinegar, lemon, salt and pepper. Made the appetizer, then drizzled the marinade over them. I had leftovers, which showed me they are even better the next day. I kept the marinade in a container and served it with the appetizer, along with reduced balsamic vinegar. My sister loved this recipe. I think I will use an entire cheese ball per appetizer next time, I personally think the tomatoes cut in half make it easier to eat.

Mary's Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2014
These are amazing. They turned out perfectly. I'd say these are my favorite cookie I've ever made. I don't care for chocolate! Or cookies really. But I bought a new "Dove" cookie cutter so I was motivated! I sprinkled some sugar sprinkles on some of them, turned out great.

Old Fashioned Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2014
Per my dad, who is now 87 and grew up in Philadelphia, the rice was very large, he said almost like it was soaked in milk. Well, thats what I did. Make the rice, I use Calrose rice, medium grain. The best is the asian rice. Anyhow, I use whole organic milk, and cover the rice just to the top. IMPORTANT: DO NOT REFRIGERATE during this process or rice will get hard. You have to leave it out while it absorbs the milk. This is done before the cooking. Then you have to add the milk the recipe calls for. So if you don't have time, don't soak the rice! Its amazing how much milk the rice absorbs! So years ago I figured this out, and my dad swears this is how the authentic Philly style rice pudding was, but I really think they may have used risotto instead of rice. I tried it before but it was difficult. Anyhow, thats how I've been making this for my dad over the past 25 years. Sad, he's nearing the end of his life, so this batch I just made for Christmas Eve dinner is probably going to be his last.

Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: May 4, 2010
I didnt have cilantro, or jalapeno salsa, or any green salsa as a matter of fact! I used a can of diced green chilis. I used more sour cream, and half & half, and put some canned chicken broth in too. mixed the green chilis in, some cumin and chili powder, salt and pepper. followed the directions with filling the pan. used green onions instead. filled each tortilla with the chicken/green onion mix, and filled each with some shredded cheese. then I put shredded cheese on top as well. Oh, forgot, I had a couple tomatoes, so I diced them, put some on the bottom of pan before placing the tortillas in pan. wow, this was good, even my picky eater liked it. I just used what I had on hand. ALSO*** I made this again, with different tortillas which soaked up the sauce which left them dry! I used a less doughy flour tortilla the first time, and next time I make these I'm making more sauce! PS - I NOW DOUBLE THE SAUCE, OTHERWISE THEY ARE TOO DRY. and I use the less doughy tortillas because they soak up the sauce too much. These are amazing with more sauce. They are literally sitting in the pan with sauce up to the top of each enchilada. when they bake some of the sauce disappears which is why doubling the sauce it great, and I never use all of the salsa, its too hot for my family

Greek Orzo Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2009
This is my favorite new recipe. When cutting up the artichoke hearts I always remove any 'hard' outer leaves that are chewy. I also add to taste finely shredded mozarella cheese. My nephew who's in college wanted this recipe 2 take back with him he loved it so much! Now this will be my staple when making a salad for a party - I don't use the lemon pepper or dried oregano. I add more fresh lemon juice and the artichoke marinade for the dressing with salt and pepper.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2006
I loved this recipe. Although, I did not put in any of the peppers, excpt the chili peppers. Nobody here likes their taste. I also skipped the cayenne pepper, all but 2 of us dislike spicy! The longer I simmered the chili the more tender it became...it was incredible!

Spinach and Artichoke Au Gratin

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2005
One thing I forgot to mention! I agree there is too much spinach. I always make more of the cream cheese topping. So, you may want to try this change too! When there is too much spinach, its too chewy.
