Quick Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2013
Loved it! Double the sauce, tho, and at least double the capers - maybe more.

Garlic and Herb Cream Cheese

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2012
Did pretty much as directed - strong (garlic) cause did not let set long enough. Had mellowed out by next day. Used only 1/2 of butter. Used mainly as a spread on crackers. Also great on sandwiches (meat ball subs - yummo!) and grilled chicken - instead of mayo. Excellent!

Sesame Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2012
Pretty much the same as a lost recipe I'd had years ago. Made these recently and they were wonderful - flavorful but not so much they overpowered the fresh strawberries with which they were served. I used the cuisinart, adding slivered almonds early on so they were really fine by the time the whole thing was complete. Instead of vanilla, I used almond extract - about 3/4 teaspoon. I used only about 1 1/4 cup of coconut as that's all I had - worked just fine. And the sesame seeds - boy are they expensive in the little jars! Fortunately there's a store nearby with a huge selection of things in bulk bins - VERY affordable there. They spread a lot - few of mine were really circular as they kinda ran together. But the taste is rich and delicious - try it; you'll like it!

Curried Cashew, Pear, and Grape Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2012
Best salad I've EVER made - and I've made some good salads. :) That nut mixture is to die for! It's unusual and for me that is a very big plus - I really get bored with the same thing all the time. I won't use this too often bec/ I don't want me or others to get tired of it - but I know when I do make it, guests are going to love it. (I made it for a group of people with fairly conservative tastes and without exception they all liked it.) EDIT: Made again - for a group of people who like to try different things and they loved it as much as I do. If I could give a 10, I would!

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2012
Need to add some oomph - extra curry? cayenne? garlic? Made almost double sauce, using about this amount of butter, and served w/ rice pilaf made with orzo (Sarah's Rice Pilaf from this site). Made the Curried Cashew, Pear and Grape Salad - also from this site and absolutely fantastic. Terrific meal!

Broccoli and Tortellini Salad

Reviewed: May 28, 2012
Loved this stuff! Made as directed except doubled dressing (tho only a little more than 1/2 c sugar - that was plenty sweet). Also saved about 1/4 of the dressing to be added when serving. Next time would do only 1/2 of a red onion; even tho I really like onion, this much was too dominate. Added bacon and seeds when I added the final bit of dressing about 6 hrs later.

Margaritas

Reviewed: May 6, 2012
Fabulous! It would be 4 stars as shown, but 5 stars for how we did it. Made as directed but included a couple of additional suggestions from Cooper: added a scoop of frozen pineapple concentrate to the mix and then floated a tiny bit of Grand Marnier on top. As good as - no, better than! - any margarita I've ever had. (Making it as shown was a bit too sour for us - the pineapple was the perfect antidote. OJ would be good too but I didn't have that on hand.) It was a verrrrry good party! :)

Spiced Bacon Twists

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2012
FANTASTIC! Everyone loved it! Needs double the spices to make a difference - otherwise it's just sweet bacon (tho there is absolutely nothing wrong with that, either).

Lemon Schaum Torte

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2012
Elegant. Not difficult. A bit different. Make-ahead. Lots of things I reeeeeally like in a recipe! Served it to 16 women at a special luncheon and they loved it. Did not use the cinnamon - that doesn't seem to fit this list of ingredients - but did do a squiggle of raspberry puree on each plate (color and taste were perfect with this). Next time I would make 1 1/2 times the amt of lemon curd - I would like to see much more of that delicious stuff.

Microwave Spiced Nuts

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2011
I've made about six batches of these this year already and am getting ready to make another - they're wonderful! I start w/ pre-toasted nuts (using walnuts 'cause they're the cheapest) which I buy in bulk. When they come out of the microwave I spread them out and immediately sprinkle them lightly with kosher salt. Absolutely delicious! Also, when I buy nuts of any kind I always toast them as soon as I get home, put them into storage containers (zip type baggies) and keep them in the freezer. Nuts keep forever that way and are so much better when toasted.

Balsamic Bruschetta

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2011
Squeezed out extra juice on 4 roma tomatoes. Used a pint container of mixed red/yellow cherry tomatoes (color was nice!), cutting them in quarters. Per others suggestion, added extra parm - probably 1/2 again more. Also added several Tbls of small chopped red onion. Delicious!!! Had a little left over and used it on tamales, with a dollop of sour cream (that's where the saved juice really made its mark!). Delicious again. Only problem: it falls apart easily as there is nothing to bind it together. Several guests wound up with it on their laps. Next time I might put a very thin slice of cheese (mozz?) on top and slide under the broiler for a moment - but then, that really changes the whole thing and it really did taste great as it was. Just warn your guests, I guess . . . .

Urban Legend Cookies II

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2011
LOVED this cookie! Used 1 3/4 c of each of the sugars (that was plenty) and 1 1/2c of choc chips 'cause that was what I had. Did not bother with the grating of extra choc. Processed 1/2+ the oats to get fine powder and rest left as oatmeal (we like oatmeal). Next time will add a bit of cinnamon and maybe nutmeg. Took some to work - they disappeared in seconds.
