Kugel

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2006
I made this last night for my family's break the fast, and it was a huge hit. This was as good as any other kugel that I have ever had. 1/3 cup ended up being two whole graham crackers crumbled. Next time will definitely use three since the toppings became sparse when it was cut and served. Thanks for a great recipe, Ann!

Grilled Asparagus with Orange Wasabi Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2006
This recipe was incredible, and everyone at our BBQ loved it. I used fresh ginger and doubled the dressing portion to make enough to marinate the asparagus for a few hours before grilling. The end result was so flavorful that I would absolutely do it again next time I made this recipe. I too left out the cabbage and just served it alone.

Apple Butter Spice Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
Very good. The cook time was a little long for my oven so use a toothpick to remove as soon as it is cooked through to retain as much moisture as possible. I will definitely make this again next fall to use up my extra apple butter.

Penne and Vodka Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2006
After reading other reviews I sauted three cloves of garlic and half a yellow onion in the melted butter. I substitued shrimp for the pancetta and did not add them until until the sauce was simmering. Be careful not to cook the shirmp for too long so only add them to the sauce in the last few minutes. I also cut back on the pasta because my husband and I like our pasta more saucy. Great recipe. Thanks.

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: May 16, 2006
Served this dish at a dinner party and it was a hit. Be sure to have an extra sauce pan ready since I wouldn't have wanted to turned the marinade into a glaze in the same pan as the cooking fish since it definitely left burned parts behind (even though the fish came out perfectly).

Artichoke & Spinach Dip Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
I used 8 oz of cream cheese like other reviewers recommended. Best served hot and definitely not as amazing once it cooled off. Next time I'll make it in two different rounds to make sure it is fresh for the entire party.

American Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
I made this vegetarian by using Morning Star's meatless crumblers instead of the meat. I left out the parsley because I didn't have any in the house, and I used 1 Tbs. of white sugar instead of brown sugar since I had run out. I also added a second can of diced tomatos as other reviewers recommended. Even with this, I was still short on sauce for the top and had to open a bottom of tomato sauce to mix in so the top layer was covered. The flavor was great, but the consistency was totally messed up. I sprayed by 9x12 dish with Pam and put the first three of the nine lasagna noodles on the bottom. I baked it covered with foil at 375 for 1 hour and 15 minutes, and this bottem layer was so tough that I could barely cut through it and it was totally inedible. Next time I think I may cook it for only 45 minutes and possibly add some sauce to the bottom to help this layer from not overcooking.

Butternut Squash Bisque

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2006
Very good. I sliced the butternut squash in half, scooped out the seeds, and roasted it face down in a pan with 1/2 of water at 350 for 40 minutes. I also added a dash of cinnamon.

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2006
Excellent! This was my first attempt at risotto, and it was a total success! I halved the recipe, which was more than enough for me and my husband. I left out the chives since I didn't have any in the house. Also, I used a third of a pound each of white, shitake and portabella mushrooms. Finally, I grilled shrimp seasoned with salt, pepper, and paprika to make it a main course. Great recipe.

Jam Filled Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2006
These were really good but not absolutely amazing. I would give a 4.5 if I could since they were better than a 4 but not the highest 5 star rating.

Spicy Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2006
These tasted great but weren't crisp enough. I tried broiling them at the end and think I will adjust the temperature if I ever make them again.

Louisiana Shrimp Creole II

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2006
Very nice but not spectacular. My husband and I added extra tabasco to give it more of a kick. We would definitely make it again.

Tofu Tacos I

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2006
I make this for my husband all the time. We love this delicious and fast recipe. I usually decrease the amount of chili powder by half to make it a little less spicy. I also substitute salsa for the tomato sauce to give it extra flavor and always use tortilla instead of taco shells. Great recipe!

Insanely Easy Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2006
It was easy to make but the final result wasn't anything special. My husband and I found it kind of bland and had too much of a soup consistency. I think there are better veggie chili recipes out there, especially for the main course.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
I used only four bananas and thought it wasn't sweet enough and kind of dry. Next time I'll use more and measure out the 2 1/3 cups to give the receipe a fair chance.

Pumpkin Bread IV

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
Excellent. My house smelled wonderfully and I timed it so they came out of the oven as guests were arriving. I had to cook it for about 75 minutes to get it to cook through. I will definitely make it again.

Wonderful! My toddler was literally licking his fingers. Served over rice. Used 1 tsp of salt in each part and it was more than enough.

Reviewed: May 30, 2009
Very good and creamy. Used 3 1/2 cups of broth. Needs a clove or two of garlic. Next time. Serving it to my toddler with some chicken. Great as a side dish.
