Spinach Pie I

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2003
A good flavor, but a little "eggy" in texture. Could improve, I think, by using half-and-half instead of milk. Also, was watery, I think from the fresh spinach cooking (although it was quite dry when I added it). Do not top with the cheese till the last ten minutes. It browned too much! A nice recipe if I do some work on it next time.

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2003
My family begs for these. I use my own homemade biscuit recipe, but I add all these seasonings and other ingredients. Exceptional flavor, and you can't beat the fragrance as they bake! Delicious when serving any type of seafood or fish. A savory winner!

Turkey Sausage Noodles

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2003
Although my teen boys liked this, I must comment from an adult point of view. The smoked flavor permeated the dish; the noodles are soggy by nature; not enough contrasting flavors. I will not make it again.

Boudreaux's Zydeco Stomp Gumbo

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2003
Just delicious! I added a 10 oz. box okra, 1/4 C Worcestershire sauce, extra shrimp. At end of cooking time, added about 1/2 C minute rice because it was a little thinner than we like. You could customize this to suit yourself. A real warmer-upper on a cold winter night!

Spring Biscotti

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2003
I apologize for my skepticism, these are amazing! My Italian grandma was the all-time world champion biscotti maker. But these are the best modern twist on Grandma's biscotti that I can imagine! They are VERY easy to make (used Kitchen Aid mixer), wonderfully flavored, excellent texture, smell divine! Used 1/2 tsp orange extract in place of the zest; had only 1/2 C pistachios, so I added slivered almonds too. These will be a PERMANENT addition to my files!

Lemon Pepper Green Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2003
My family enjoyed these for a special birthday dinner. I used frozen green beans, steamed. I doubled the amount of lemon pepper, butter, and almonds. We'll have these again.

Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2003
Incredible flavor! I used this with a spiral, basted it frequently (15 min.) while getting it between the slices as much as possible. While baking and carving, I could not keep my family out of it! Fantastic and SO easy!

Potato Candy

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2002
Try eliminating the milk to get a stiffer texture. Mom never added milk. She taught me to make this when I was a child, and I remember having to add cups and cups of sugar. Delicious! A family favorite.

Baked Salmon II

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2002
A winner every time. Even the non-fish-eater enjoys it! You can't go wrong with this one. More than the sum of its ingredients!

Strawberry Cake and Frosting I

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2002
This cake gets raves from everyone, especially my kids, even the one who hates strawberries! Best the second day. Everyone is puzzled by the frosting. The trick is to first DRAIN the strawberries in a sieve over a bowl, and SAVE the juice. Use the strawberries as directed; the frosting will not be runny. Add a little cornstarch to the saved strawberry juice, microwave until thickened to a medium gel consistency, then drizzle over the cake and refrigerate. It dresses up the cake! This works in a 9" X 13" pan, too.

Key Lime Cake III

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2000
Overly sweet, especially the icing. Sorry to say that the family would not eat it after their first bites, and I had to throw it out. Would not recommend!

Apple Cake III

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2000
Absolutely the best apple cake ever. Everyone raves about it. Have made at least a dozen times now. Great for those who can't have chocolate. I use the "premium" apple pie filling and add a pinch of pie spices. For those who don't care for nuts, use uncooked oatmeal instead. Turns out really well in a Bundt pan, too, made more like a coffee cake; double the amount of streusel topping in that case. My golden retriever puppy loves it, too. He ate more than half of a fresh one as it cooled on the counter!

Snickerdoodle Cake I

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2000
This is the BEST cake ever! Have made twice now. My family goes nuts. Tastes EXACTLY like the cookie. Use evaporated milk instead of regular. Great alternative for those who can't eat chocolate.
