Ono Butter Mochi

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2009
I followed this recipe exactly and, like the last reviewer, I really liked the taste. The coconut topping was sweet and browned beautifully. The consistency of the bottom part,though,was EXTREMELY dense and just not what I was expecting.

Jumbo Shells Stuffed with Turkey

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
I thought they were great. Such a nice change from the shells baked in spaghetti sauce. Sort of more elegant.

Lemon Custard Pudding Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
My husband and I both really enjoyed this dessert last night. That said, I used the juice and zest from one whole lemon, which amounted to about 1 T. of zest and about 3 1/2 T. of lemon juice. I think the lemon flavor was fine. I agree with some of the reviewers who said it was a little too sweet, so I would cut out some of the sugar next time. I also thought that the pudding was a little too runny even though I baked it for the full 60 minutes, uncovered. (It's still runny even though it's been in the refrigerator overnight.)I might use a little less milk next time. The recipe is very similar to an over 100 year old recipe that I use for a lemon sponge pie.

Cardinal Punch

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
I made this in a punch bowl using 2 qts. cranberry juice, 2 liters gingerale, 1 qt. orange juice, 2 C. lemon juice and 2/3 C. honey. (32 servings) I thought it was good and my guests seemed to like it. I served vodka on the side for those wishing to imbibe. It went along with my bird theme.

Quick Yeast Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
I just made these rolls for dinner, following the recipe exactly as written. I did make 10 rolls as my muffin tins were really full with only 8. I think 12 would be a better number. The dough was a little on the sticky side, but I used a silicone spatula to transfer it to the muffin pan and that worked well. They were golden brown, soft inside and had a really nice flavor. The next time I make these, I may use butter, but the shortening was fine. I WILL make them again! Quick and easy recipe.

Cranberry Upside-Down Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
I want to serve this for a Christmas brunch, so I tried it yesterday (Thanksgiving)on my family. It got rave reviews. It was sweet enough and moist enough. I made it in a 9" square pan, well sprayed with cooking spray and except for a little topping, it came out of the pan OK. Yummy!

Apple Squares

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
The 1st time I made this I used an 8" square pan. They turned out 'gushy' but we ate them warm with vanilla ice cream. The second time in a 9" pan I only used 1/2 the cinnamon sugar topping, because it seemed too much. They were great, very tasty and good texture. I decided to try them a 3rd time with the full amount of topping so I could fairly review this recipe. They turned out very well, but I don't think that there was any benefit to the additional cinnamon sugar. This recipe makes a square with the texture like a brownie. Adding more apples would change that. Also, if you double the recipe , it should be baked in a 10"x15" pan rather than a 9"x13" as it's closer in square inches. I just made my double batch in 2- 9" square pans. They were a big hit. I used a Granny Smith apple.

Chocolate Pretzels

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2008
These are great as is 'for the chidren'. When I make them for the adults, I use dark chocolate kisses and cashews. Sweet and salty! I put them in the toaster oven on a foil lined baking sheet at 250 degrees for about 4 minutes. When they come out I put the cashew on and gently push it down a little. I let them cool completely before removing from the foil, so I transfer the foil to a cooling rack and then make another batch. They get snapped up off the cookie tray quickly.

Chocolate Cupcakes

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2008
These cupcakes had a good taste, but they were NOT moist. My homemade icing is what made them OK. I made them as written, baked them for 16 minutes and I used an oven thermometer, so I won't use this recipe again.

Unbelievable Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
I thought that this marinade, while very good, was nothing spectacular. I followed the recipe to a T and marinated the chicken almost 24 hours. The chicken was moist, but with a whole lime and 1/2 a lemon, I thought I'd get a more citrus taste. It's a lot of ingredients for just an ordinary taste. I've gotten better results with a bottle of marinade that I don't have to take the time to make.

Oh-So-Good Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2008
I made this recipe exactly as written except I used 2 cups of leftover chicken instead of 8 oz. fresh. My husband and I both liked it very much. I'll make this again as I almost always have the ingredients on hand. It was easy to make and tasty. Couldn't ask for more. One writer said that it didn't look appealing, but I though it looked OK. It had a nice browned top.

Toscana Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2007
I wound up using homemade turkey broth because that's what I had on hand. I, too, used red pepper flakes because I saw another recipe using it. I used sweet Italian sausage, though. I think it tastes great. One comment...I think Ken probably meant 2 T. of chicken bouillon plus the qt. of water, not 2 T. broth.

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2007
I made this cake for my husband's birthday. I had to make this in four 8" pans since I didn't have the 9" pans. I used just a little more coffee granules mixed with a tiny amount of water because I made 2 white layers and 2 coffee layers. Since I used 1/2 the batter instead of 1/3 for the coffee layers, it required just a bit more. I also increased the coffee for brushing on the bottom of the cake layers (since I had 4 not 3) I didn't use additional Kahlua and didn't change anything else in the recipe. I had enough filling and frosting. I thought it was great. Everyone else liked it, too.

Italian Biscotti

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
I made one third of this recipe as the whole lot would have made way too much for my family. They came out great! The dough was a little sticky to work with, but I floured my hands and used a silicone baking sheet. I did put some melted chocolate on the bottom of the biscotti when they were cooled.

Panna Cotta

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
I made this dessert today as a trial run for an Italian themed Christmas party I'm planning. Delicious and easy. I served it with the Italian biscotti from this site.

Harvest Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2007
I think this recipe is GREAT! I served it at a party with rave reviews. I agree with one reviewer that the seeds in the raspberry jam detract. I used seedless.

Cream Cheese Penguins

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2006
I made these for my "For the Birds" themed Christmas party. Everyone raved about how cute they were. I filled the large olive with an icing bag. I used a paring knife to cut a beak sized wedge out of the small olive instead of just a slit. It took a few seconds longer, but it worked really well.

Creme Brulee French Toast

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2006
I was going to follow this recipe but found I didn't have the right ingredients and I had to make more than just 6 slices. I used regular butter, no corn syrup, about 10 slices of bread, 2 C. half and half and 6 eggs. I didn't have Grand Marnier, so I used peach schnapps, about 1/4 C. Boy, was it good! All my guests loved it, too! I've made it several times. One of these days I'll make it your way.

Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2006
I had never made Irish soda bread before, but I followed the recipe to a T and I baked it in a cast iron skillet. Wow! It was fantastic. The sweet of the raisins and the tang of the caraway was great.
