Master Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2014
I made the recipe with the directions for the regular active yeast and added rosemary and garlic. Nice to work with. However, once baked (on a pizza stone), the texture felt more like breadsticks than the NY style pizza I am used to.

Chicken Souvlaki with Tzatziki Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2013
Good seasoning. Very tender chicken. I made it inside under the broiler on a grill pan. I added just a little sugar to the tzaziki. Would make this again.

German Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
Delicious flavor and texture. You need to eat this within a couple of days or it starts to get gooey. I guess that could be a good thing.... but not for cake.

Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
I've been cooking turkeys for thanksgiving for 20 years. This was the first time I used a brine and I would never cook it without brining ever again. I cooked a bone-in turkey breast, which is notorious for being dry. Everyone commented on how juicy it was. Very little effort for such a great result. I brined the breast in a cooler with ice for the required amount of water- which melted and kept the bird cool so I didn't need to keep it in the fridge. I'm sure you could do it with a whole turkey and a larger cooler. Try this!

Breakfast Apricot Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2008
For a sugar free muffin, this was surprisingly tender and fluffy. Taste was good, but really could use double the splenda. Maybe a touch of cinnamon as well. I do not like almond extract, so I used vanilla. All in all, this is a nice muffin and can be varied to your tastebuds. I will make this again.

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2008
This is a great basic recipe. Just throw in the beef broth and forget it. I didn't have a chance to put it in the oven, which I'm sure would have been even better with the carmelization. However, the meat was so tender, that I just added the BBQ sauce (Sweet Baby Ray's) and it was great. At first, I thought there was too much liquid, but I served it over rice and it was awesome. Next time I will try it with the oven part too. I used a pork butt for this recipe, but you could probably use anything.... beef, chicken, any cut of pork. If you are a busy mom (or dad) this is a great timesaver and it makes the house smell great.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2008
This recipe is excellent. The cinnamon sugar "crust" is great. The recipe really does make a huge amount of batter... almost too much for a kitchenAid mixer bowl! The only issue I have is that the size loaf pans called for are very scarce. So you are kind of on your own as to the size of pan and baking time. I made 1 9x5, 1 8x4, and a pan of mini loaves. The large one cooked (at 325) for almost an hour and a half, the smaller one for about an hour and twenty minutes, and the mini loaf pan cooked about an hour. I filled all of them to about an inch below the top of the pan. Other than that confusion... this was an excellent, moist, flavorful recipe. You can add extras like raisins, craisins, different nuts- whatever you like. Don't skip dusting the cinnamon sugar on the pans. Not only does it taste good, but it also helps the baked loaves come right out easily. Try this! Oh My Goodness... this is even better the next day! Try it with cream cheese.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2008
I made this exactly as stated. I think I agree that it could use a little more ham and potato, less pepper. I did feel that it needed a little something else for flavor. Maybe a pinch of dried thyme or rosemary. Maybe saute the onions first. Just SOMETHING was missing. My husband liked it as is, but I have really sensitive flavor receptors. Again, don't be discouraged by this review. The soup is great and is certainly a terrific base open to some creativity. Just tinker around with some seasonings a little bit.

Tuscan Cream Cheese Spread

Reviewed: May 20, 2007
I really liked the combination of ingredients here. They work well. Only problem is that I really wanted a dip, not a spread, so I could have added more mayo to thin it out. Also, everyone thought it was a seafood spread (I guess because of the sun-dried tomatoes in it... must have looked like crab or shrimp or something). Next time I'll put up a little sign. But this was good. Would make it again.

Cucumber Sandwiches III

Reviewed: May 20, 2007
This is a terrific recipe. You can certainly experiment with different dry dressing mixes. We tried a garlic and herb from Good Seasons. It is VERY garlicky, but everyone loved them on mini potato rolls and everyone wanted the recipe, so I guess it worked. Thanks. Would definitely make it again.

Cocktail Meatballs I

Reviewed: May 20, 2007
These were a fun retro dish that I made for my daughter's birthday party. All the grown-ups liked them and so did I. I baked the meatballs instead of frying just for health reasons. They were very tasty. Would make again.

Low-Fat Blueberry Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2006
My 6 year old daughter and I made these this morning. We are really watching our food choices, and that's why we chose this recipe. Everyone loved them. They came right out of greased muffin tins. I wouldn't use paper liners, as these are somewhat sticky. I made only a couple of changes... used all whole wheat flour (HINT: get some wheat gluten from the store. It will help prevent HEAVINESS from the wheat flour and you will not need to increase the baking powder or soda. You can find it either in the baking aisle or the health food aisle. Use about 2 tsp. for this recipe). We added about 1/2 cup of finely grated carrot for fiber and sweetness, upped the vanilla to 1 tsp., and added about 1/4 cup of Splenda just in case the frozen blueberries (use them frozen) weren't at the peak of sweetness. Oh yeah, we used All-Bran cereal soaked in the milk instead of wheat bran. Anyway.... try these- they are wonderful. Would definitely make them again. Thank you for the recipe!
