Easy Mediterranean Fish

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
This is an excellent recipe! My Greek Yiayia would make it often, served with rice pilaf and lemon wedges. Don't forget the feta, sliced cukes and crusty bread.

Easy Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: May 1, 2010
This is a good base recipe, however, I made some minor changes that improve the finished cookie. The basic recipe is a little oily, so I always add 1/4 cup all purpose flour to make a firmer cookie. **You can also use a 'regular' cake mix, that does not have pudding in the mix and it comes out just as tasty. For a pretty yellow colored cookie, add 3 drops yellow food coloring. To prevent spreading, mix, then refridgerate for 1 hour, shape, roll in powdered sugar and baked as directed. You can also roll them contrasting colored sugar crystals for a fun punch of color. The crystals make a crispier outer coating that my family likes. ** Of course, you can use any other cake mix recipe and modify the flavor add-ins to suit your own tastes. Bake on parchment lined pan for 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool on pan for 3 minutes, then remove to cool completely on cooling rack. Enjoy!

Luscious Slush Punch

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2010
You can easily reduce the sugar by half and it is even better. Or swap sugar for Splenda and use diet soda and sugar-free gelatin. I really like peach gelatin and mango puree with lemon juice for brightness. (omit the OJ).

Finikia

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
Excellent recipe. Please be aware that Finikia are not meant to be crunchy cookies. The cookies are best when they absorb every bit of the flavorful syrup. TIP: Top warm cookies with COOL syrup OR Top cool cookies with WARM syrup The best way to finish these is to place cookies into a large baking pan-just large enough to fit all of the ccookies. The pan should have sides. I use a 13 x 9" pan. Place the cookies in the pan, pour syrup over all and allow them to absorb. Syrup should come 1/3 up the side of the pan. (The same rule applies when making Baklava) It will take at least 1 hour to absorb. Store them in this pan covered with foil, then gently remove to serve. This will keep them very moist! Opa!

Double Quick Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2010
Great recipe! For those who may be wondering, 2 1/4 t. active dry yeast = 1 packet. Replace half of the AP flour with whole wheat for more fiber, and a change of pace.

Skiers' French Toast

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
Very good custard/creme brulee' consistency. We made it with the following modifications: Add 3 T water to sugar topping mixture & microwave 1 min. and STIR till sugar is totally dissolved. Pour into well sprayed glass pan and let stand for 10 min. Use enough bread to make 3 layers sprinkling cinnamon between layers. Make custard mixture with 6 eggs, 1 T. vanilla, 1 c . half&half, 1 1/2 c. milk and 1/3 cup Splenda instead of sugar if you want to decrease overall sugar calories (does it matter @ this point?) SLOWLY pour custard mixture over bread. Cover and chillovernight. Dot top with butter & bake at 350 for 50 minutes. Invert on serving plate to serve. ENJOY!

Baked Ziti IV

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
Excellent! Recommendations: Use Italian sausage instead of the ground pork. Use 80/20 ground round insted of regular ground beef. Swap out the sliced onions for 3T dried onion flakes and add them to the cooked meat & sauce. Pour off all excess fat from the meat. Blot with top with paper toweling if necessary. After meat is cooked and sauce is added, stir in 1/4 c. chopped fresh flat leaf parsley and set aside. Combine the cheeses and sour cream (reserve 1/4 cup for topping). Fold cheese/sour cream into the pasta. Spoon in the pasta/cheeese mixture into a generously sprayed or buttered baking dish. Spoon meat/sauce mixture over pasta and gently spread to edges. Dot with teaspoonfuls of reserved cheese/sour cream. Bake at 30 till bubbly OR microwave on 50% power for 10-12 minutes till bubbly. Enjoy! This is my go to recipe for pasta bakes or lasagna!

Grandma's Egg Custard Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2010
Excellent custard pie. For a really crisp crust, bake in a ceramic pie plate. That is the secret to avoid a soggy crust. Aluminum foil pie pans do not conduct and hold the heat like ceramic does. The end result is amazing.

Old-Fashioned Italian Zucchini Fritters

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2011
Very nice recipe. I grate the zucchini then place in a colander then sprinkle with 1t. salt and allow to sit for 15 minutes. Place in a square of cheese cloth and squeeze out excess water, then proceed with the recipe as written *** Be to add the salt called for. What ws used to pull the excess moisture out went down the drain with the juices! Enjoy!

Chocolate Cornstarch Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
Excellent. I made mine with skim milk and Splenda to save carbs and calories. One recommendation is to whisk all dry ingredients in a small bowl with a couple ounces of the milk, till smooth, then add to the pot of cold milk, and whisk continuously on med heat till it just boils. Then remove from heat and pour into serving bowls. Cover with plastic wrap and chill if you decide not to eat warm. If you prefer not to have a 'skin' place plastic wrap directly on the surface and when you take it off-no skin! Enjoy!
