Authentic Lebanese Fattoush

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2011
Healthy and oh so scrumptious. I made my own fattoush using this recipe and two others. I used the basic salad dressing here and added extra sumac, a bit of za'atar, and a drop of evoo. For the salad I used arugula, tomatoes, cukes, red onion, mint, parsley, and toasted stale wheat pitas (375 in the oven for 5-7 min on each side). Big hit, definitely making this again.

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
WOW. I used about 12 potatoes (baked, not canned), added about 2/3 c bourbon, replaced most of the white sugar with light & dark brown, and cut out most of the butter in the sweet potato part. This thing is DIVINE. Downright sinful. Be sure to send any leftovers home with your guests, otherwise it'll be calling your name from the fridge..

Easy, Speedy Corn Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
5 stars for easy prep, great flavor/moisture, and less guilt than some other recipes. I followed the recipe exactly and baked in a parchment-lined 9x9 for about 25-30 minutes. They're a little crumbly, but what cornbread isn't? Bravo, Marcy! :)

Oranged Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: May 18, 2010
I've made this for thanksgiving several years in a row. It is delicious, but also super sweet and tangy. If I make it again this year, I'll probably scale back on the sugar. UPDATE: I made the following changes for thanksgiving 2011: omitted the water, slightly reduced the OJ, used about 1.5c brown sugar, and reduced the simmering time to about 20-25 minutes. SO MUCH BETTER! Because you're starting with less liquid, you don't have to let it cook for so long to thicken up. I think I could have reduced the brown sugar even further, so maybe that will be something to try next year.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: May 18, 2010
I'm sure these would be divine even if made as the recipe stated, but I made the following changes: 1/2 whole wheat flour, buttermilk for the milk, lemon yogurt in place of oil, overly generous with the blueberries, and tossed in a few diced strawberries as well. 1/2 topped with streusel (there was a TON left over), 1/2 topped with cinnamon and sugar in the raw. Baked in regular size muffin tins for 18 minutes. AMAZING. They really are to die for!! I preferred the streusel topping, but that's a personal choice. :)

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
I have never seen such an outrageous reaction to a simple dip! Brought this to a bbq; everyone seriously flipped out and searched for "the girl who made The Dip." It was nuts. I baked and shredded 3 chicken breasts. Cut the cream cheese down to 1.5 blocks, went generous on the bleu cheese and Frank's Red Hot (Buffalo style). Used low fat options wherever available and shredded a only light layer of cheddar on top. Baked at 375 for 15-20 min. Perfecto.

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
Basic ingredients, foolproof, and delicious! Only used 1 tbsp. of olive oil. I made this twice-- first baked (1 lb of mahi, 400F, 15 min), then on the George Foreman. Both were great, but the george foreman version was far superior. I'm sure it would be even better on an outdoor grill. Served with a colorful mixed greens salad and brown rice-- nice and healthy.

Orange Corn Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
I made mini muffins with cornbread mix and a generous amount of orange extract. They tasted just like the Howard Johnsons Orange Toastees!

Mini Southwestern Corn Pup Muffins with Fiesta Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
Oddly enough, these were really good. Didn't make the sauce or have the cumin. I was unsure about the cheese, so I only put it in half the batter. Silly me, everything is better with cheese in it!

Chicken Wing Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
We ate this with a fresh pumpernickel loaf from the bakery. It was delicious, but a bit heavy.

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2004
This recipe is perfect- easy, foolproof, and delicious! Slightly crispy on the outside but yumyumYUM chewy on the inside. Make sure you refrigerate the dough first because it is very sticky!! I Replaced 1/2c of white sugar w/ confectioner's sugar as suggested. I wanted to make a colorful plate of assorted sugar cookies, so I doubled the recipe and set up 6 different plates w/ different sugars to roll the cookies in prior to baking: red sugar, blue sugar, cinnamon sugar, brown sugar, white sugar, and chopped nuts... baked about a third of them without any sugar and decorated those with melted white and milk chocolate. This was the best looking (and tasting) tray of sugar cookies that I've ever seen!

Little Mickey's Favorite Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2004
This little cheesecake earn higher praise and brighter smiles than I ever thought possible from a dessert. I used the Chocolate Wafer Crust from this site (1.5 cups chocolate wafers/6 tbsp butter) and 1 1/3 cups of mini chocolate chips. The edges were already getting dark after 35 min, so I turned the oven off and left the door open. Consistency was perfect, very minimal cracking. Topped the cooled cheesecake with a thin layer of peanut butter, toasted chopped nuts, and sparse mini chocolate chips as suggested. This cheesecake was actually good enough to spark controversy for me at work: apparently people were offended when I tried to pass off store-bought baked goods (this cheesecake)as my own--- HA!

Black and White Cookies I

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2004
These are just like the black & whites in the bakery, if not better! I used hoosier2b's suggestions for the flour, lemon, salt, and chocolate icing adjustments- the cookies were big and baked up fluffy and cakelike, just like they should! WATCH them in the oven-- they're done right around 11 minutes, when the edges are just starting to turn golden. The icing won't bleed or look messy if you apply the white first and let it dry completely before applying the chocolate. Make sure that your icing remains warm while you're putting it on the cookies: it's easier to spread on and will dry shiny, just like the ones in the bakery!

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2004
Unfreakinbelievable!!! I regularly bake cakes for my friends' birthdays and use Allrecipes for ideas. This is the first cake recipe that sounded good enough to follow exactly, and it is by far the best one that I have made yet! I did have to stop and make more of the coffee mixture, so I would suggest preparing double the amount in advance to be sure you don't run into the same problem. As the other reviewers recommended, I let the cake sit in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours before serving... its more than worth the wait!

No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2004
Although the taste was creamy and absolutely delicious, the pie didn't hold up for very long after coming out of the freezer. However, it was stored in the walk-in freezer of a busy restaurant, so the high traffic of the freezer may have warmed it up and be to blame for my slightly mushy pie. Either way, it tastes awesome and I still salvaged marriage proposal from a coworker after serving the pie (contingent, of course, on the promise of making this creamy peanut butter dream on a regular basis)!

Fudge Truffle Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2004
...and the compliments just keep on coming. I used reduced fat cream cheese and condensed milk, doubled the crust but still used about 1/3 c butter, and substituted egg beaters for two of the eggs. No cracks whatsoever after cooling for an hour in the oven and then for another half hour on the countertop. Served with the Supreme Strawberry Topping on this site and some chocolate sauce drizzled over the top, this dessert is absolutely to die for!
