Great recipe, even hubby liked them and he's not a fan of canned salmon. Very moist and tasty. This is a keeper, thanks for the recipe!

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
I'm not a big fan of premade pizza crusts so when my 14 year old nephew wanted to make "personal" pizzas, I had him try out this recipe. It turned out awesome! 5 people made their own, thin, thick, chewy, or crispy pizzas. Even my 2 & 6 year old's turned out great! Very workable and it tasted great...thanks for this easy recipe!!

Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2008
Love this recipe except I agree with the last reviewer. I too had to bake it for 1.5 hours. They are awesome!

Portobello Mushroom Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2006
This is a good base recipe. Did read some of the reviews saying it was missing something so I added garlic, worcestershire (1 tbsp or too taste), and soy sauce (1 tsp or to taste). Used these ingrediants in other stroganoff recipes, adds that extra tangy zip to the cool creamy flavor of sour cream.

Crab Stuffed Flounder

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2005
Great recipe. Skipped the peppers because I didn't have any, added old bay seasonings, and added a tablespoon of milk to the egg/mayo sauce so it wouldn't turn into an "omelette" like some had complained. Turned out great!

Baklava

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2005
WOW, I'm in heaven!!! I love baklava but didn't ever think of making it because I thought it would be too difficult, until I came across this recipe! Used finely chopped pistachios with sugar and cinnamon in my nut mixture which I used about a 1/4 cup in each layer. I also ran out of butter and prayed it would turn out using margerine...still turned out fantastic. I did make sure to cool down the honey syrup before putting it on my hot bakalava, I can't say enough great things about this recipe..thank you Donna!!!!!

Steak Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2005
I thought this was a good, easy, and quick stir-fry. I doubled the sauce like others suggested and I used frozen stir-fry veggies, which I thaw out in warm water so it doesn't water down my sauce and they also heat up much faster which avoids over cooking them. The flavor was good and the consistency of the sauce was perfect but it was a little on the salty side.

Double Chocolate Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2005
These have a nice flavor, not too sweet but next time I would omitt the white chocolate because it really had no flavor to me. Definitely do not wait an hour to cut, I do it as soon as it's out of the oven, use two long spatullas to lift it off the pan, use a towel to hold and cut with a serated knife and start putting them back in the oven! This usually reduces the crumbling. Great recipe but still favor Jandee's "Biscotti" recipe, maybe the difference is oil vs. butter!

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2005
What a great dish! I live in AK so I'm always looking for easy and tasty salmon dishes. Salt and peppered the filets, put a thick layer of the sauce on the top and bottom and put on extra pecan topping (omitted the breadcrumbs like some suggested) and it turned out great! The topping was crunchy and the salmon was moist...baking fish in silicone bakeware, if you haven't tried it, also keeps you from "drying" out your fish dishes.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2005
This was my first pie. The flavor was nice the consistency was not. I think I over baked it, apples were really mushy. I should have read through all the tips (which I usually do) but didn't on this one, pretty much just followed the recipe. I highly recommend tossing the caramel with the apples or putting half on through the layering like so many recommened, it did not bake in, stayed right on top. Also 8 apples are too many, more like 6. I get my apples from Costco so they may be a little larger. The pie looked impressive but I'll have to work on the rest.

Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2005
I used fresh yams and after cubing them, thought I should double the batch (still easily fits in a 9x13)since I had quite a few people over for Thanksgiving. I also had to make it ahead of time and chill it but left the topping off until I was ready to bake it. I'm assuming because of this it did not heat up properly at 350 so I craked it up to 425 for 15 minutes..WOW, it turned out great! The pecan topping (hand plenty plenty since I doubled it) had a nice crunch and the yams were awesome, a huge hit at dinner, they couldn't stop raving about them...nice change from canned yams topped with marshmallows!!

Easy Herb Roasted Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2005
This was fantastic! I had a 21 lb turkey so I doubled the recipe, half butter like some suggested, poultry seasoning instead of sage because I had it, made sure to get it all under the skin, and used chicken stock instead of water in the bottom of my pan. I used a different baking structions since my bird was quite larger and baked it in the oven at 350 until the skin started to turn a golden brown, covered it with a foil tent, and then took it off the last hour of baking to get the skin nice and crispy, about 5.5 hours total. It turned out great and the wonderful gravy from the drippings was a bonus! My guest said it tasted like rotisserie style and loved it! They even asked to take some left overs with them!

Sugar Cookie Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2005
Nice texture, firm and dries very quickly. Flavor is quite sweet but does compliment some of the sugar cookie recipes for kids nicely. Really easy to work with.

Southern Living Magazine's Chicken-Fried Steak

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2005
Great recipe, crunchy outside and tender inside. Definitely would add something like garlic salt to the cracker mixture to give it a little more flavor but other than that, it's great!!! I used canola oil instead of peanut oil too.

Biscotti

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2005
This is the easiest recipe I have ever come across for biscotti!! I substituted vanilla because I had no anise, the dough was sticky yet managable, no need for extra flour. I also dipped one side in chocolate (1 bag of nestle semi-sweet morsels melted in the microwave). Crispy, almost flaky and just the right sweetness!! The only thing I will change the next time is make one roll so the cookies end up longer. Definitely a keeper!!

Cajun Style Blackened Snapper

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2005
I've never been very successful at blackening fish until I came across this recipe. The only thing I changed was using rockfish (will try it with salmon & halibut next time), it was excellent, spicy with that distinct flavor that you can only achieve from blackening. It didn't smoke up as bad as I anticipated but my family could feel the "pepper" in their throats while I was cooking so make sure to open up the windows!!

Gorgonzola Cheese Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2005
What a wonderful base recipe for a quick and easy gorgonzola cream sauce. Based on the reviews, I improvised a bit. I added a small bulb of garlic to saute with the butter, used half&half to make it richer, 1 and 1/4 cups of gorgonzola cheese, heated long enough to melt most of the cheese, then tossed it with hot tortelloni and topped it off with fresh dungeness crab...it was an excellent meal fit to be served in a restaurant. My sister who doesn't like gorgonzola or bleu cheese loved this dish!!

Grilled Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2005
I was looking for a quick shrimp scampi to serve over pasta and this looked nice and easy. I doubled the garlic and let marinate for the 15 minutes while my pasta boiled but instead of grilling, I sauteed it and finished it off with a 1/4 cup of butter and a tsp of kosher salt. Thought it might be too much lemon but it was great, nice and garlic-y!!!!

Barbeque Halibut Steaks

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2005
I went with a recommendation from another review to bake it instead of grilling it because it was easier for me at the time. It turned out nice however I think the flavor would have been more intense by grilling it which I will definitely do the next time.
