Broccoli Chicken Casserole II

Reviewed: May 6, 2009
I've made this casserole for 20 years but have always added a can of sliced water chestnuts and a cup of unsalted cashews -- those are the two ingredients people always comment on (in a very positive way!. Those two things make the casserole much more interesting.

Bat Cupcakes

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
I made these for my ten year old daughter's class Halloween party... when her older sister saw them, she begged me to make them for her class, too! They were so easy to make and so cute -- the teachers and office staff at the schools raved about how cute they were! I bought plain chocolate wafer cookies (Nabisco) for the wings, but did use the Hersey's kiss for the head/face and red gel for the eyes. The gel can be dotted on much easier than tube icing plus the gel has a glow which makes the eyes appear "scary". This recipe will be a Halloween tradition from now on.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2008
Calling this the "World's Best Lasagna" is quite accurate! Very, very good, in fact, better than any Italian restaurant lasagna I've ever eaten. All other recipes have been ripped up and thrown out! (I didn't change a thing in the recipe except for the amount of salt -- used 1 tsp. instead of 1 tbsp.)

Dirty Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2008
for an annatto substitute try 1/4 tsp. paprika plus generous pinch of tumeric (equals 1 tsp annatto)

Chicken Divan

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
I'm having friends for lunch on Sunday and couldn't find my old chicken divan recipe so I searched on All Recipes and, lo and behold, here it is. My original recipe did not call for mushrooms, but does have one cup of cashews -- it's a wonderful additional "crunch" to the water chestnuts. Also, I cut roasted chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces (shredded doesn't sound very appetizing to me!). It's a lovely, easy dish served with rice and a salad. It's always been a hit with my guests over the past 20 years!

Cranberry Sauce Extraordinaire

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2006
A bunch of Canadians enjoyed an American Thanksgiving dinner tonight... we quite enjoyed this cranberry sauce. I left out the pecans (didn't seem quite right to me to have nuts in a cranberry sauce) and I also omitted the dried fruit -- it was FANTASTIC!

Blue Cheese Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2006
I took other reviewers' advice and increased the amount of blue cheese, a bit too much I'm afraid for my taste, anyway! My guests either really did enjoy the burgers or they were just being polite! I will definitely try the recipe again with a slight adjustment to the blue cheese. These burgers are a nice break from the standard BBQ'd "burg".

A Drama Queen's Pavlova

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2006
This Pavola was the best I've ever made -- I served it at a luncheon recently and everyone raved about it and immediately requested the recipe. The dessert is easy to make and presents beautifully. This recipe officially replaces the Pavola recipe I've used for the last 15 years.

Shrimp and Asparagus

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2006
Okay, so my husband and I might not live as long as the rest of you who halved the butter, but we sure loved this recipe in all its buttery glory! The dish is very pretty and served with a salad and some crusty bread was a delicious dinner. Go wild; don't cut the butter!

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: May 22, 2006
I have tried many, many meatloaf recipes over the years and quite enjoyed this one. I didn't find it too sweet, as others readers have, but did find the texture to be just a bit too moist. I would agree with other reviewers to slightly reduce the amount of milk. I would also agree that the brown sugar & ketchup mixed together would be better placed on top of the loaf.
