Nonna's Tuscan Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
We loved this. It reminds us of Olive Garden's salad dressing, only a bit creamier. It was just the right tartness for our palates. I let it whirl in the blender for about 2-3 minutes or so. If it's too tart, you could always back off a bit on the vinegar, or use balsamic, which will give smoothness to the taste. But all I can say is in this house, we LOVED it and I keep a cruet of it in the fridge all the time for dipping baby carrots and impromptu salads. Yum!

Pumpkin Custard with a Kick

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
Good, but needs spices. I use 1 tsp cinnamon, 2 tsp ginger, 1/2 tsp cloves and a dash of allspice and nutmeg. Not necessary to used skimmed evaporated milk - the regular works, too. Also I substitute 2 whole eggs for the 4 egg whites. As written, it's a fat free recipe which is nice for dieters, but for those not worried about a few calories, using regular evaporated milk and whole eggs gives a nicer texture and doesn't add all that much in the way of fat or calories. I followed Baricat's advice and used only half the cayenne, and we thought it was just right that way. It was warm, but not burning hot. Also agree with her advice about the sweetening. It needs to be doubled, or maybe even a tad more. We use Splenda here because of diabetes, and 1 cup of Splenda is just about right.

Cozy Cottage Beef Stew Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2005
It doesn't have enough beef to serve as a stew. If you want stew, you'll have to add more flour to thicken up, and increase the amount of beef. Cut the meat and veggies in larger pieces for a stew. About the beef consomme thing, Campbell's makes both a broth and a consomme. The consomme has a more gelatin texture and deeper flavor/color.
