Christmas Breakfast Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
So very yum and versatile, too. I added chunks of zucchini for just a little more volume. Excellent!

Italian Bread Using a Bread Machine

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
This was good and worked even when I did NOT follow directions...somehow I had it in mind that I was supposed to knead the dough again once I punched it down and prior to shaping it into loaves. Next time (and see...I do hope to go there again) I will try to do it right. Still, though, yum AND gorgeous!

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
Not big on making adjustments (who am I kidding?). This was great. I did add about 1/4 cup milk to soften the meatballs, and par-cooked meatballs for 20 minutes in a 325 F. oven on parchment in casserole dish, before adding to the sauce. This was such a hit. Thank you for posting.

Cake Mixes from Scratch and Variations

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
Not quite as light as the box rivals, but really versatile, easy, and tasty. I'll be using this again. DH's favorite cake (yellow) is no longer imported here; I think it has to do with the dye. Anyway, this will be great under my fudge frosting.

Cake with Buttercream Decorating Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
Used a different cake recipe, but chose this for the frosting. I scaled down to 2 servings, and tried doing the math from ounces to grams and ended up with something a bit off because I could not get the icing to hold a shape even chilled; kept adding powdered sugar till I sort of/kind of could work with it. Will try again some cooler day. Maybe when I have ounce measures about. It was fun. Rating 5 for flavor and because my mis-measurements should not bring it down.

Quick Italian Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2009
Really tasty soup base. I did add beef to mine, and used chicken broth instead of beef bouillon, but that was a pantry substitute...and we like a little meat in our "vegie" soups.// a year later...tried again, as written by submitter...good even without the meat. It does lend itself to tweaking. Can be served over rice or have some kind of pasta added to it for a more stick-to-your-ribs version. Ah, yes, even pulled ribs in this sea of vegetable goodness, would work.

Felix K.'s 'Don't even try to say these aren't the best you've ever eaten, because they are' Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
Flour here is milled a bit finer than, say Gold Medal, for instance, so I tried compensating by adding a bit more flour (maybe a full 1/4 cup) to make the dough less manageable as described by other reviewers. I must have come really close. These are so good...and not difficult in the least! Worst part was waiting 20 minutes to remove from pan!

Cream of Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2009
Souper...er, umm, Super! This was so yum. I used some celery with the finely minced onions at the outset, used olive oil for the sauteing base, threw in a bay leaf, and used half & half for the milk. Only two of us here, so on subsequent night with leftover soup, added boiled & seasoned potato chunks, asparagus, and crumbled bacon for a new "Potato Tomato Soup"...also yum. Oh! used a basic crouton recipe from this site for toppings both nights. Made me feel like a cook, after all.

Duke

Reviewed: May 23, 2009
Odd to give this five stars when I did not like it personally, but since everyone else did and it was a group of fifteen or so, and because it went together in practically a split second, I have to applaud. My personal preference is to not have dill, and, of course, that is the very thing everyone else was so thrilled by.

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
This was easy...and only reason I don't go five stars is a personal preference for less sugar. The oil, though, seemed a great alternative and mine, done a bit thicker than called for, have stayed chewy. Look forward to experimenting with other additives...like dried cherries, mini chocolate chips, rice cereal, etc. Oh. I also uploaded a photo, but can't seem to find it except on my "My Allrecipes" page. Hmmm. Anyway, thank you!

Unbelievable Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
Someone else did these scaled down, so thank you for saying so...gave me the nudge I needed to try these out for just two of us at home. I scaled to 6 rolls, and used a small egg. Anyway, as a dinner roll, though light, it was not the taste/texture we like for dinner rolls HOWEVER, these make fabulous sandwich buns. We'll be having these again and again, I think. Moms with lunch boxes to fill...these are a winner!

Chocolate Orange Fudge

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2008
What could be easier ... and who knew orange and chocolate were such natural taste "buds"?

Chocolate Cherry Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2000
This was my first time to try making biscotti. I think when using two cookie sheets for the browning part of the preparation, they should be shifted top to bottom, front to back for a more even browning. At least for my oven this would be true. Nonetheless I'm having to hide the stash from my husband lest he finish them off before our Christmas guests arrive!!
