Delilah's Frosted Cut-Out Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2007
This is the first sugar cookie/frosting recipe that I have actually enjoyed making b/c they turned out so well! Not only were they beautiful and easy to transport b/c the frosting sets so nicely...they were also delicious and everyone who ate them said they tasted professional. I've never gotten that response with cookies!

Pear Honey Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2007
A wonderful addition to any Thanksgiving feast! I followed others' suggestions and sub. orange juice for the water and used an extra pear...perfect sweetness to counter tart cranberries.

Irresistible Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2007
Beautiful and yummy! I used (thawed) frozen pie crust to save time and sub. pancake syrup for the corn syrups. I had to tent the pie with foil for the last 15 minutes b/c my pecans on top were getting too brown. I also added 10 minutes to the cooking time, and then turned the oven off but left the pie in for another 5-10 mninutes b/c the pie had not set yet.

Thai Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2007
Wow-gourmet pizza made right in my own kitchen...and fast! I is definitely spicy, so if you don't like food with a kick, tone it down with less peanut sauce and more peanut butter or sub. a peanut ginger salad dressing for the peanut sauce.

Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2008
Best broccoli salad recicpe I've found. I did use more than 1 head of broccoli as there was way too much dressing for my taste.

Honeyed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2008
My husband couldn't get enough of these. He told me it was a 5 star recipe and he's a tough critic when it comes to food. I did add garlic and doubled the sauce. I also marinated them longer than stated in the recipe.

Mulligatawny Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2008
Amazing! Definitely wouldn't serve 6 as written--especially not when it's this good! I doubled the curry and put in a bit more rice as suggested by other reviewers and I'm glad I did both. I think I'll put double the chicken in next time, too.

Incredibly Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
I've never liked meatloaf before, but I loved this! I halved the recipe, added 1/4 c chopped onion, substituted garlic salt for reg salt and used half BBQ half ketchup for the topping. I used another reviewer's suggestion and took the meatloaf out when it hit 160 and covered it tight with foil until it reached the correct temp in order to keep it juicy.

Corned Beef and Cabbage

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
5 stars but I did make a few changes: I put the beef in, rubbed it with 2 T brown sugar instead of putting the white sugar in. I topped with water and spices, using less vinegar, then the veggies (red potatoes instead of white) and finally the cabbage.

Irish Soda Bread Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
I thought these would be okay as an addition to my st patty's day meal, but ended up really liking them! I left out the caraway seeds, topping half of the cookies with them before baking and I used a mix of golden raisins and cranberries.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: May 5, 2009
Mine ended up pretty flat, but the taste was amazing anyways! I used half brown sugar because I ran out of white (who runs out of white sugar??) and I added chopped rhubarb instead of nuts b/c I have tons to use up.....sooooo yummy!

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
Wow! My husband and I went to an upscale Japanese restaurant in Milwaukee and I swear I had this same recipe salmon--it's amazing! I followed the ingredients exactly, but changed the cooking method a bit. Since we have never properly seasoned our grill, I cooked this in a foil packet with a lot of the marinade and it was SOOO flavorful and tender. I never flipped it and it took about 15-20 minutes over med-high heat and it didn't dry out at all (I had about 1 1/2 lbs I think).

Eggs Benedict Breakfast Pizza

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
Yummy--didn't change a thing except baking the crust for about 4-5 minutes before topping it. A really unique breakfast to serve to guests!

Ice Cream Sandwich Desserts

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
I was tempted to give this 4 stars because I was frustrated that it took more ice cream sandwiches than stated, but it was so good I can't help but give it 5! Definitely need at least 24 sandwiches, though! I did sandwiches, caramel, peanutes, cool whip, sandwiches, hot fudge, cool whip, peanuts as suggested by another reviewer. EVERYONE wanted the recipe!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
If you're not typically a great cookie maker (that's me!) TRY THIS RECIPE! I swear it's as close to no-fail as baked cookies can get. I follow the recipe exactly, but do allow the butter/eggs to get room temp as suggested by many other reviewers. I also make mine pretty big (~1/4 cup dough) so they take about 13 minutes.

Rhubarb Strawberry Jam

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
As long as you cut back on the sugar a bit (I used 2/3 the amount) this is a five star recipe. It is soooo easy and a great way to use that rhubarb without making another pie/crisp.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
Wow, the chicken in this was AMAZING! Moist and flavorful. I almost didn't want to put the sauce over it, but I'm glad I did because it was yummy, too. Served over whole wheat couscous.

Chicken Souvlaki Gyro Style

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2009
Better than our local restaurant's chicken gyros according to my father and husband! Used a bit more garlic and a bit less dill. Most importantly, I used fresh, homemade pita bread--makes all the difference in the world and isn't that hard to make. So much softer and tastier than store bought--take the time to make your own!!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2009
Wow is this good! Per many reviews, I added 1/4c water, doubled the topping and cut in the butter cold rather than melting. Also added 1 c chopped pecans to the topping which is a must if you like nuts! I used both quick cooking and regular rolled oats and it worked fine!!
