Baklava

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2009
GREAT recipe! I used walnuts and I did use 1 1/2 times the sauce, however next time I make it I will definitely reduce the white sugar. It was much too sweet for my taste. I also, as did another reviewer, find that 350 degrees was a little too hot. I cut the baking time a little short because it was starting to get a little too dark. Next time I will bake it a 325 instead of 350. I thought this would be very time comsuming, but it was really quite easy to essemble and didn't take long at all. Thanks for the recipe!

Caroline's Chocolate Fudge Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
Terrific! I used this to frost Michelle's Peanut butter marbled brownies and they were the hit of the party! I did reduce the milk to 1/2 cup and had to add more confectioner's sugar to thicken it up so next time I will reduce the milk even further. After I frosted the 13 by 9 pan of brownies I had quite a bit left over.

Michelle's Peanut Butter Marbled Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
Words cannot describe how amazing these brownies are! They were the absolute hit of the graduation party that we brought them to. They were incredibly moist, not cake like at all. The peanut buter layer was just as good, gooey, mosit and peanut buttery. I topped them off with Caroline's chocolate fudge frosting also from this site. And finally after chilling them to harden the frosting I cut them into squares and topped them with crumbled mini resee's peanut butter cups. They looked just a great as they tasted! I did change them just a little. Here's what I did: I used a whole 8 oz. brick of cream chese, upped the peanut butter to 2/3's cup, only added 3 Tbsp. suger to the PB batter, used 1/2 and 1/2 instead of milk, reduced the sugar to 1 1/2 cups in the brownie batter, used milk choc. chips instead of semi-sweet and baked them for 37 minutes exactly. After spooning on the reserved chocolate batter over the peanut butter layer be careful as you swirl it on top as not to cut into the peanut butter layer in order to get a nice layered effect with nice swirls on top. This is one of those, YOU MUST TRY recipes! Everyone wants a copy!

Blackberry Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
OH MY! This was amazing! I don't know how anyone could write a bad review for this. Because of the reviews that stated that this was too sweet, I reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup to 1 cup water and we thought it was just right. Also I only sprinkled about 2 tsp. of sugar on top after baking 45 minutes. After sprinkling the top with sugar I baked for another 10 minutes rather than 15. I did not have self rising flour so I followed the instructions given for that. And I confess I did use 1/2 and 1/2 instead of milk. The dough was exceptional. Crunchy on the top and extremely moist underneath. Wow! NOT dry at all! I can't wait to make this again. Thanks of the recipe.

Zucchini Patties

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2009
These are wonderful! The only thing I did different was to add jack cheese instead of mozz. because that is what I had. I husband and son who won't touch zucchini loved these. In fact I knew they wouldn't even try these had they known that they were zucchini so I told them they were potato pancakes. When they finished them off and commented on how delicious they were, I told them that they were made with zucchini. They liked them so much that they both took them cold to work the next day for lunch. Great way to use up some of the abundant zucchini! Edit: I've been making these for years and just this last time I squeezed out all the water from the zucchini before mixing everything together. What a difference! I will never skip that step again. Also, I used a couple Tbsp. of brown rice flour instead of the white flour and it worked great. Couldn't tell the difference. Now they are gluten-free!

Grilled Tri-Tip with Oregon Herb Rub

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2009
Well, I certianly do not see what all the hype is about. This was just ok in my book. I listened to all the reviewers regarding the salt issue and reduced the salt to 1 1/2 tsp. and used garlic powder instead of garlic salt. Personally I think it would have been better the way the recipe was written. I marinated it for about 24 hours. And I didn't think the flavor was all that spectacular. I am used to using FRESH herbs as opposed to dried. Maybe that's the reason we thought it lacked flavor. With all the comments about how flavorful this was I really had high hopes. It was just ok and I will keep looking for a better rub.

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2009
Very good. Did not have the WOW factor that a 5 star recipe should have, but still good and I will probably make it again. I made it exactly according to the instructions. The marinade just didn't add a lot of flavor to the shrimp.

Strawberry Jam

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2009
Excellent! I put the strawberries in my vitamix added the lemon juice and reduced the sugar to 1 1/2 cups (I think I'll reduce it more next time.). The cook time was just over 20 minutes. It thickened nicely and tastes delicious! Next time I think I will crush the berries by hand rather than using the blender so that I will have more chunks in the jam.

Yummy Honey Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2009
Delicious! I am only rating the marinade. I took chicken out in the morning and had no idea what I was going to do with it as it neared dinner time. I checked my recipes and decided to give this a try even thought I had only 1 1/2 hours to marinate. WOW! What flavor! I forgot the pepper so I only used the oil, soy (I used tamari) and the honey. I really didn't expect much with such few ingredients, but it was really delicious! I wound up grilling the chicken and topping it with bacon and cheddar cheese. I was incredibly moist and full of flavor. We all enoyed it and will be making it again soon.Thanks for the recipe. I am looking forward to an all day marinade.

Honey Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
These were good, but did not have the Wow factor. We could barely taste the honey. No one knew that there was honey in them until I told them. I normally do not like very sweet things and cut back on the sugar whenever possible, but in this case I think I would increase the honey to maybe 2 Tbsp. Actually if I made these again I would increase all the seasonings. They really didn't have a lot of flavor.

Breakfast Sausage

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
Excellent! I have made this several times. I refuse to purchase the pre-made sausage at the store with all the chemicals and msg in it. I follow the receipe exactly with the exception of using real maple syrup instead of brown sugar to make it even healthier. I try to eliminate all refined sugar from my diet. And I confess I am usually a little heavy handed with the maple syrup, maybe 2 Tbsp. or so. Excellent taste! My son cannot get enough of this. I also like to add it to the sausage casserole from this site. Yumm!!

Famous Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
good. I followed the recipe exactly, with the exception of cutting down the butter a little. The chicken was very tender, but personally I prefer to bake the chicken with bread crumbs and parmesan cheese like I always have. I think it gives it much more flavor than using the cracker crumbs. I will not make this again.

Baked Ziti IV

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
Absolutely AMAZING! However, I did make some changes. I have tried many recipes for baked ziti and this will be my forever keeper! This is what I did, First I used the sause recipe from World's Best Lasagna from this site (using only 1 Tbsp. sugar and a huge Tbsp. fresh basil). Then, back to the Baked Ziti recipe, I added to my sauce the additional sauteed onions, garlic and FRESH rosemary also adding a tsp. freshly dried mint from my herb garden (The secret to REALLY GREAT sauce!). I mixed the cottage cheese with the sour cream and only used mozzarella cheese (personal preference). I finished by at least doubling the parmesan cheese and WOW! INCREDIBLE! This definitely puts and end to looking for the best Zita recipe! This is it!

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: May 22, 2009
Great bread!I've tried many banana bread recipes and this one is by far the BEST! I did decrease the sugar to only 2 cups and it was plenty sweet enough. I also used Rapadura instead of white sugar to make it healthier. I only put in 4 bananas instead of 6 because that's all I had and it was fine. Next time I will try it with the full amount. I used 2 9 by 5 glass pans filled 3/4 full and with the rest of the batter I filled 6 mini rectangular muffin pans. I baked those for about 40 minutes and the 9 by 5s for 1 hour all at 325 degrees. I frooze some for my husbands lunch for a later date and I'm glad I did because he loved the bread and can't wait till I make some more. Thanks for the recipe.

Crispy Mashed Potato Pancake

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
I gave this only 3 stars because I modified this recipe so much, however the final result was VERY tasty, I added about 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, some fresh chives instead of the oregeno and I added a few tbsp. flour which it definitely needed to hold it together. And as another reviewer stated do not flip until a full 8 minutes have passed for browning the first side otherwise they will break apart. My husband and son both loved these! A great way to use up leftover potatoes.

Steakhouse Black Bread

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
I didn't think the bread was too bad, my son kind of liked it, but my husband took two bites,left the rest and said it was terrible. Since he's always the final judge, I gave it 3 stars. The texture of the bread was great I thought. I did double the recipe for a bigger loaf in my bread maker without a problem (no overflowing). I guess it just had an off taste. I ALWAYS reduce the sugar in all my recipes, but in this recipe I actually think I would increase the sugar. The coffee & chocolate actually left a slightly bitter taste and adding a slight bit more sugar may have helped balance the flavors. If my husband didn't dislike it so much I would probably give it another try with a little tweaking.

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2009
Great cookie! The only thing I did different was reduce the sugar to 3/4 cup each & using parchment paper instead of greasing the cookie sheet. I put them on the cookie sheet in balls and they flattened out slightly to produce a nice hardy cookie, not flat! Yummm! Oh and I did add rasins.
