Tzatziki II

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2011
Be sure to drain everything or you'll have a soupy dip. I used dill because we prefer the taste. This recipe is my husband's new favorite!

Tzatziki Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2011
Drain, drain, drain! That's the key to a good dip. I've made this without the oil and it works just fine. Instead, use the oil to spread over quartered & split pitas that you dust lightly with garlic salt & bake at 350 for 5 mins on each side. Great for dipping. Yum!

Mango-Pineapple Chutney

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2010
I skipped the onions because of family allergies and substituted a can of crushed pineapple for the real deal. Still great! Loved it with chicken breasts. Would be a fab sandwich addition too.

Classic Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: May 30, 2010
I added red peppers and about 1/4 cup sweet pickle relish. Loved it! This makes a TON. We had 8 adults and finished about half the bowl. I think I'd cut it in half next time. A keeper though.

Mad Hatter Salad

Reviewed: May 30, 2010
Our group of 8 devoured it with generous helpings and repeats. I halved the amount of green onion and sugar. Didn't have slivered almonds, so I chopped a cup of raw almonds I had on hand. Worked just fine. Otherwise kept it true to recipe. This one's a keeper.

One - Two - Three - Mexican Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2010
Fast, easy and has some zip! I like it because it uses things I generally have on hand. I might try a chipotle salsa...or add some cheese next time. A good change up over "regular" macaroni salad.

Caper Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2010
Easy, but sophisticated enough to serve to guests. Cornstarch works wonders at thickening the sauce. I'd double it if I wanted to use it liberally or use it to accent a side dish.

Fast and Friendly Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
Like so many others, I "doctored" this up....but it's still a great basic meatball recipe. I like that it's so fast and can be oven baked while the pasta cooks and sauce warms (okay, so I didn't make that from scratch today!). Makes a quick meal that way.

Kim's Chocolate Fudge Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
It was plenty chocolaty, but um well....it just wasn't that GOOD. Though I followed the recipe exactly, mine was dry. If you try it, up the oil or something. As for me, I'm looking for another recipe, sorry to say.

Three Cheese Breakfast Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
This recipe was a little dry and maybe bland for my taste. I'd make it again, but I'd increase the milk/eggs --- and spice it up a bit, I think. One unique aspect was the sour cream topping, something you don't always find on a b'fast casserole.

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
I'm jumping on the bandwagon with two thumbs up. I've cut this in 12 wedges and frozen them individually (separate with waxed paper) so I can just pop one or two into the oven for a Sunday morning coffee with my DH. Given as teacher "thank you" gifts to rave reviews! Endless variations of additions besides those mentioned --- lime zest is fun, as is a cranberry/mini choc chip combo. Melt in your mouth!

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2009
A Key Lime-loving friend whose b-day I made this for said it was the best Key Lime Pie he'd ever had. (Yeah!) Makes a generous amount of fillng for a 9" pie shell, so you could probably use a larger pie plate if desired. I had to bake it for 12 mins; could've just been my oven, but be prepared. Beautiful with whipped cream and a lime garnish!

Lemony Garlic Shrimp with Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2009
I'm another one that skipped the brining (sorry), but still LOVES the recipe. (And it's QUICK!) The only other thing I did differently was to use some freshly squeezed lime on the pasta (because I had no more lemons). It gave it a bit more of a kick. My family loved this and I plan to make it again. (Thought the idea of adding a bit of fresh broccoli was worth trying too! Thanks!)

Unbelievable Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2009
A wonderful taste for summer and a very flavorful way to grill chicken. (Because of the sugar, be sure to oil your grates prior so it doesn't stick!) This was a hit with my family (teens too) and I plan to keep it in rotation for the outdoor grilling season.

Lemon Glazed Cake

Reviewed: May 6, 2009
If you're looking for tangy lemon flavor, choose this recipe! A tip: If using a bundt pan, poke holes in the crevices (as opposed to the crowns) and pour half the glaze. Then, add another cup of confectioners' sugar and a drop of food coloring and pour the rest. This gives a thicker, more colorful glaze. Since my young daughter requested this for her b-day, I topped with multi-colored sprinkles. You could add something a bit more sophisticated (lemon wedges?)if serving adults. A keeper!

Jim's Birthday Pasta Salad

Reviewed: May 2, 2009
Suggestion: Needs a little color, so add red/green/yellow peppers OR broccoli florets OR peas. I doubled the dressing. I'm keeping this recipe around because it looks like a more sophisticated salad (because of the artichoke hearts and chick peas), but it's actually quick-from-the-pantry and easy as can be!

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2009
Easy...with endless variations! Tip: Use the end of a long-handled, fireplace matchstick to dip the berries in chocolate! It's sturdier and keeps your hands out of the chocolate. It's better than a fondue skewer because berries don't slip.

Spinach Pomegranate Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
Love this recipe! Most recently, I was unable to find pomegranates out-of-season, so I had to do a last-minute substitution of mandarin oranges. Was delicious and colorful too!

Craig's Cocktail Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
This one saved me in a pinch when guests were practically on the doorstep! I quartered the recipe and it worked great. I added a bit more hot pepper sauce than called for, but that is probably individual taste. A keeper!

Carrie's Artichoke and Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
I'm a "recipe tweaker," but with the exception of swapping out bow tie pasta for fettuccine AND lightly sauteing the tomatoes along with rest of the dish there at the end, I've made this for two dinner parties and kept the recipe intact. It's marvelous --- flavorful, colorful, crowd-pleasing. And because it comes together fairly quickly, you don't have to spend your life in the kitchen and miss out on the party!
