Cucumber Sandwiches III

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2010
Delicous! Definitely cut back on the italian seasoning - taste as you go. And fresh dill makes it work. Note - several reviews said they tasted even better the next day. Therefore I wasn't concerned with making extra for dinner. We had then on rye bread, not toasted. The leftovers were not nearly as good. I'm sure letting the cream cheese mixture sit on its own is good, just not fully assembled.

Margarita Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
I've made this three times in under a month. My boyfriend (who doesn't love chocolate the way I do) really enjoys it! Most recently I made it on a trip home and it did not turn out as well. I'd been using large, thick old-fashioned pretzels but this time my mom had leftover skinny stick pretzels for me to use. I crushed them right in the bag. It turned out terribly salty! I think it was a combination of the smaller, less "doughy" pretzels and extra salt at the bottom of the bag. So I suggest always using the thicker pretzels. I had raved to my family about how great the pretzel crust is - how the touch of salt is refreshing - but it was too much for everyone and embarassing. Other than that, a hit!

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2009
Fantastic! When my boyfriend saw the recipe, he said, "what possessed person number 1,472 to decide to write a review? didn't they think there were enough?" Well, i'm going to add as well. It's just that good! Also used part applesauce and part canola oil and replaced most of white sugar with brown sugar (ran out of white!). For the frosting I only used about 2 3/4 cup powdered sugar. Had a great cream cheese flavor. My cake also cooked REALLY fast. Done in about 30 minutes in a 13 x 9 pan. It's not the oven - used it a lot. So watch the cake!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2008
Delicious! I'm glad I made the effort to get the full amount of bananas, it's certainly moist! I love vanilla and add it to everything, and I also included a little bit of cinnamon. My method for adding pizzaz was to chop pecans and mix them with a little brown sugar and cinnamon. Then I pour in half the batter, sprinkle the nuts, and then pour in the other half. I find it's a great way to add nuts but it contains 'em to one spot. Sometimes I want a bite with a nut, sometimes i don't :-).

Lemon Blueberry Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2008
The bread tastes great and we'll certainly finish it, but it didn't amaze me as much as I thought it would. I used fresh squeezed lemon juice. I also freshly zested the lemon peel and only got about 1.5 teaspoons. However, the lemon was still extremely overwhelming - almost don't see the point in the fresh blueberries! Reading other recipes that feature just blueberry without lemon, I saw how reviewers found them bland if they didn't add vanilla and cinnamon. For this recipe, whatever slight flavor the blueberries may have, it's covered by lemon. It's just not what I expected; my boyfriend and friends were very excited when they heard "blueberry loaf" and it seems more like a lemon loaf. I used fresh blueberries with a lot of flavor (sampled quite a few!).

Chicken and Lentils

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2006
I liked this recipe a lot but thought it was a bit bland, either needed more spice or more sweet. I remembered how my mother used to make apricot chicken, so I chopped up some dried apricots and tossed 'em in. Great surprise!
