Old-Fashioned Pink Lemonade

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2004
Yum!!! This is my first review on the site, though I've tried hundreds of recipes. I thought the lemonade a little sweet. Probably don't need 9 cu. sugar. Otherwise, definitely a keeper!

Two Ingredient Pumpkin Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2005
It's true! It doesn't get any easier than this. Perfect when you have no time to shop for multiple ingred's. It definitely needs frosting, though. Used cream cheese frosting IV from this site and was perfect. Also sprinkled mini choc chips on top and balanced the taste well. Yum!

Quick and Easy Spinach Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2005
This was good, however, incomplete in instructions. The bread DEFINITELY needs to rest at least 10-15 min after baking. Otherwise, you're slicing mush. Good without the spinach and just pepperoni and cheese instead.

Dill, Feta and Garlic Cream Cheese Spread

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2006
Very strong feta taste, but very good, if 'strong' is what you want. I served this in a hollowed out round squash and it was quite a wow-getter. =) Don't we all want that? I used 2 tsp dried dill and it worked great.

Easy Black Bottom Cupcakes

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2005
I'm a sucker for recipes with a cake mix. And this couldn't be easier! However, it needed to bake longer than the recipe called for. I also doubled the cream cheese, as other reviews suggested. And added 1 egg. That gave it the cream cheese filling taste I was expecting. Good for a last minute solution, if you have the ingred's on hand.

Torta Rustica

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2006
Beautiful recipe when sliced. A real wow-getter. Lotta work, though. But if it's a special recipe for a special occasion you're needing, this is it. Very Italian, too. =)

Peanutty Sauerkraut Coleslaw

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
Umm....I really want to rate this recipe highly, but just can't bring myself to. It's quite the strange combo of ingred's, and I'm an adventurer when it comes to food. But this was just...a little too sweet, & too weird. You definitely don't need the extra sugar. Yogurt & peanut butter are already sweet enough. I'll be looking for other ways to use wheat germ. Sigh.

Cake Mix Cookies VII

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2005
This is THE recipe if you're in a hurry and want cookies now! I've made them 5x in the past 2 weeks. They do taste like cake mix, though, I have to say. But if those you're making them for are nondiscriminating in their tastes, you've got a hit. Tried it with choc chips & p'nut butter chips. Yum!!

Microwave Spiced Nuts

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2005
Wow!!! Very easy and a sure-fire pleaser. Works great as a last minute Christmas gift, snack for company, or...for yourself! Great flavor. Work good with other types of nuts, too. I used a couple cans of mixed nuts and they were just as good. Thanks, Jim!

Cream Cheese Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2007
This was a great way to use a boxed brownie mix...and for something quick. Like a youth function, or sunday school treat. I did NOT frost them. Wow! Can't imagine the sugar overload if I had. They don't need it. They are pretty basic, though, in taste. You could definitely 'kick it up a notch' by adding espresso powder or..cinnamon (yum!) to the brownie batter. Thanks for a great recipe to grab in a jiffy!

Lentil Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2006
My search for a low-cal lentil recipe led me to this one. I must say, I was a little disappointed at first...nutmeg, cloves, red wine..? But, after it sat a while, I was scarfing it down. Very mediterranean, not just 'a flair'. Will make it again.

Cheese Fritters

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2005
What a great taste! I had some leftover cottage cheese that I wanted to use up and this was the perfect solution! Make sure you drain the fritters well after frying as they do retain the grease. The nutmeg adds an awesome surprise flavor. Light and fluffy and yummy w/raspberry jam!

Venison Schnitzel

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2005
Very tough. I even undercooked the meat and used the tenderest of cuts. The flavor of the crust was good, however. Maybe I'll try again with a different cut of venison. Thanks, Clint!

Potato Chips

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2006
I wish I could award 'no stars' for this recipe. After seeing all the wonderful reviews, I thought I had to try it. I did...and it blew my microwave! And it's not that old, or cheap! What a letdown. The chips that did get cooked were somewhat rubbery as well. Bummer, all 'round.

Double Chocolate Mocha Trifle

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2006
Beautiful, yummy, easy, cheap. All the prerequisites to a perfect recipe. Made it 2x in one week. Didn't exactly 'cube' the brownies. As long as they're crumbled, it assembles fine. It's a mess to scoop out, but those eating it don't care. Be generous with the coffee to get any kind of 'mocha' flavor.

Very Simple Spelt Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2008
This was a tasty,healthy bread. I've never made anything w/spelt before and it was definitely worth trying. Tasted quite 'sesame-y'. Baked beautifully and nice to have a bread without needing yeast. The extra tin on top DID develop a nice crust. Thanks!

Chocolate Ganache Icing

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2006
Decadent. Perfect for anything needing a serious chocolate blanket. Tasted yummy w/out brandy. Don't do alcohol. Beware of a spoon with this stuff on it. =)

Mocha Java Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2005
What a HUGE disappointment! I raced all over town to get the ingred's for this...and it ended up in the trash. It didn't tell you what size pan to use, the mocha layer was bitter, and 15 mins was not near long enough to chill in the fridge before adding the white chocolate. Some recipes I botch I keep just for myself to nibble on after deciding not to serve to guests. Not this one. Hope others have better success.

Chicken Salad in the Tropics

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2006
Weird. Just plain weird. The dressing seemed to lack something...and it had a lot of ingred's! Dunno. I'm into different tasting food, but this just lacked. Will try other ways to use mangoes.
