Poppy Seed Dressing III

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2012
Delicious! I am tired of store bought bottled dressings and I was looking for a simple poppy seed dressing to make with things on hand- this was it! I scaled back the recipe to only 4 servings. I used lowfat/light mayo, 1% milk, and cider vinegar (no white wine vinegar). I used the dressing on a mixed spinach, lettuce salad with strawberries, left over roaster chicken, feta cheese, and almonds- I kept telling my husband this is the best salad I ever ate...Definitely I will make this one again.

Cream Puffs

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2012
These are GREAT- My friends did not believe I made them. I made them exact as stated in the recipe. I did pierce the puffs about 18 minutes into baking as suggested by others. I also melted some semi sweet chips and glazed the tops. EXCELLENT! I will make often.

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2011
I made this for a girls night party. It was re-named- "Ball of Goodness" and they all wanted the recipe! I made it as directed- except added a bit more confectioner's sugar. Butter and full fat cream cheese. Rolled in pecan bits. Served with Chocolate Wafer Cookies and strawberries. Total hit at the party!

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2010
This was good. Made with salmon- no Mahi available. Put the fish in the marinade for about 30 minutes. Grilled the salmon. Boiled and reduced the marinade, poured over the fish and brown rice. Had good flavor...had to leave the table to take a call, when I retuned, tasted the rice- so much more flavor. Should have let the marinade set a bit before pouring over rice and fish for the flavors to develop. Easy and quick to prepare with basic pantry ingredients.

Asparagus, Feta and Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
This is a great side dish- and easy too! Here is what I did to make it really tasty....cook the couscous in chicken broth. Then I roasted both the asparagus and the cherry tomatoes (cut in half) with a drizzle of olive oil and a generous shake of salt and pepper. I also added some sliced green onion. Mixed the oil and vinegar in a small bowl, then dressed the couscous and vegetables with it. I then tossed it with some really good quality goat feta, although only 4 oz. We enjoyed this side with some grilled salmon! YUM!

Grilled Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2009
This was an excellent and easy marinade for chicken. I pounded my chicken thin- then had to run out the door- so my 17 year old son, put together the marinade per the directions (except for chopped red pepper- as I didn't have any), put it all in a zip-lock and back into the refrigerator. I let the chicken marinate about 3 hours,then cooked it on the grill. It tasted amazing! Will definately make again.

Slow Cooker Lemon Garlic Chicken II

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
I have made this recipe twice. The first time, I made it as directed, except, I used canned chicken stock and juice of 1& 1/2 lemons (didn't measure the amount of juice). I added everything to the slow cooker- and I thought the chicken was a bit dried out- but with good flavor. The sauce did NOT cover all the chicken- that's why I think it dried out. Then last night I made the recipe again...but rather than putting it all into the slow cooker, I removed the browned chicken from the fry pan, then added the liquid ingredients to the fry pan to deglaze, and then returned the chicken to the original fry pan, covered it, reduced the heat, and let it all simmer until the chicken was cooked through. Once the chicken was cooked all through (about 20 minutes), I again removed the chicken to a serving dish,and then added a bit of corn starch to thicken the sauce. I tasted it- it was a bit strong- so I added a bit of water to dilute. I poured the sauce over the chicken and served with broccoli and rice. Totally gone! Now, not THE VERY BEST- but very quick, easy, and the gang ate it up! I will definately make again...just without the slow cooker!

Lemon Meringue Pie III

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
Seriously Good! This was the best! I had never made a meringue pie where you added the meringue to the filling. I would like a bit more meringue on top- next time I may add an extra egg white or two- just to have more on top. Definitely a keeper!

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole

Reviewed: May 31, 2007
Great recipe! Made it with bar-b-que pork for a party. Everyone loved it-and many went back for seconds!! I did double the recipe for a large crowd- and only a little bit leftover! My husband said this recipe is a keeper!

Raspberry Trifle

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2006
This recipe is GREAT! I made it for an open house. I did substitute angel food cake for the pound cake, and instead of using cocoa powder- I grated semi-sweet chocolate. I used Birds-Eye frozen raspberries in light syrup. The mix of flavors with the raspberry and semi-sweet chocolate- and the real whipped cream- cream cheese- it was so light and flavorful. I had several guests request the recipe- I will definitely make again!!
