Cilantro-Lime Dressing

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2014
Amazing! I was looking for ways to use up some freshly squeezed lime juice that I had on hand, and I'm SO glad that I found this recipe. This dressing took my simple, ordinary lunch salad over the top. I'm going to make main dish salads with grilled chicken for dinner tonight, just so I can use this dressing again. Yum!

Phoenician's Key Lime Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2014
Just for the record - I only made the filling, as I had a store bought graham cracker crust on hand, and decided to use that (although the crust recipe here sounds delicious, especially with the addition of ground almonds). The filling is fantastic! Creamy, with little flecks of the lime zest. This was the first time I've ever made key lime pie, and it won't be the last with this recipe! A keeper for the recipe box.

Pisco Sour Cocktail

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2014
My husband's sister lives in Santiago, Chile, and we had our first Pisco Sours while visiting her in 2006. We sent our daughter there this summer, and my sister-in-law sent a bottle of Pisco back with her to bring to us. Slight little problem though - as my daughter is only 15. She was detained by Customs & Immigration after honestly answering their question about if she was carrying any alcohol with her. She was escorted to us by a Customs officer. We had no idea what was going on, until the officer explained that people under the age of 21 are not allowed to transport alcohol! Duh! What was my SIL thinking? Anyway, he let the Pisco (and our daughter) through, seeing that WE were over 21, and the ones picking her up from the airport. Now we can make Pisco sours, and this recipe is just how I remember them. Be careful though, as a couple of these will knock you on your butt!

Apple Pie Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2014
Made them as directed and wouldn't change a thing! Why mess with perfection? These are fabulous just as is. My son's cross country team are going to be happy campers after their meet tomorrow - if they last that long!

Date Flecked Orange Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2014
These are really, really good! I cut the cloves and ginger down to 1/2 tsp each, other than that I followed the recipe. I love the orange taste, and that they are not overly sweet. The house smells wonderful while these are baking too! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Berry Almond Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2014
Heavenly! I have a major sweet tooth, and these hit the spot. I used a premium raspberry fruit spread (3/4 cup - to finish off a jar that I had opened in the fridge). Raspberry goes so well with white chocolate and almond - I think it is the best choice for these. I will probably cut back slightly on the sugar next time, even though they are delicious as is.

Grandma Rita's Soft Butter Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2014
This one's a keeper! Mixed the dough in my Kitchen Aid with the dough hook and it worked great. I made these into smaller rolls and served them with Awesome Pulled Pork BBQ. Everyone loved them! Thanks Lela, for sharing your Grandma's recipe!

Awesome Pulled Pork BBQ

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2014
We had friends over for dinner, and everyone liked this. I did need to adjust the BBQ sauce a bit after following the recipe, but I'm sure this was just our own personal tastes. For me, the mustard overpowered the sauce a bit. Played around a bit to get it to suite my taste. I really liked the pork portion of the recipe, and might use that again with my favorite bottled BBQ sauce.

Green Pozole

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2014
My husband and son LOVED this. It was a little on the spicy side for me, but I'm kind of a spice wimp - so I will give it 5 stars based on their review. It was my first time using a dried chile. I think next time I will not only remove the stem, but also slice it down the middle and remove some of the seeds inside. The only change I made was that I used all pork. It was a very tasty, satisfying dinner. When I make it again, and I will, I will cut back on the amount of meat. 2 lbs was a lot of meat compared to the rest of the ingredients.

Linguine with Garlicky White Clam Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2014
This was very good! I did use only 1 can of clams, which was plenty for 5 of us, used a tad more butter and skipped the oregano (just a personal preference). My Italian husband loved it! Seeing as he bought about 6 cans of clams recently, I think I'll be making this one again!

Pear and Sour Cherry Crisp

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2014
I had 3 pears that needed to be used up, and this recipe fit the bill. I scaled this down to 4 servings. I didn't have a can of sour cherries on hand, but I did have some dried cherries. I just soaked them for about 20 minutes in hot water, and then drained. Worked great! I really liked the pear/cherry combination. I baked mine in ramekins for 30 minutes. Thanks!

Mustard Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2014
This was delicious! I used white wine vinegar, but other than that, made as stated. Will be making this one often.

California Italian Wedding Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2014
We enjoyed this! My husband and I really liked the addition of the lemon zest. I did add some carrots and celery, just to bulk it up a bit (just sweated them in a little EVOO for about five minutes before adding the broth). Tasty soup, served with some crusty baguettes.

Homemade Refrigerator Pickles

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2014
So easy and delicious! I cut the sugar back just a bit, and skipped the green peppers, because we don't care for them. Made 2 pint jars. Will make again!

Chicken Marsala Florentine

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2014
Great flavors in this dish. The only problem I had was that it ended up being a little greasy. I used sun dried tomatoes that were packed in oil, so I cut the butter back to 1/2 cup (1 stick), and drained the sun-dried tomatoes before adding them, and it was still a bit too greasy - delicious, but greasy. Next time I will cut the butter back a bit more, maybe to 5 tablespoons. We served this over angel hair pasta. Will make this again.

Mini Cheesecakes III

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2014
Oh my goodness - what little gems these are! I love the fact that you can make 6 mini cheesecakes - just the right amount to not feel guilty about - because let me tell you, if I make an entire 9" or 10" cheesecake, it will be calling my name breakfast, lunch and dinner until gone! I can't wait to share this with my sister. She makes a cheesecake only once a year, for exactly the same reason I just mentioned. These are absolutely perfect. I had no problem with them sticking (I just sprayed my muffin pan generously with Wilton® Bake Easy). They were craked a bit when I took them out of the oven, but as they cooled, they shrunk back down and the cracks were barely noticeable. I topped ours with fresh berries and a blueberry sauce. Delicioius!

Quick and Easy Summer Limoncello Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2014
What a lovely summer cake! It's not too sweet, and the perfect canvas for a summer berry topping. I made a fresh blueberry sauce to serve with ours. I also used cream of limoncello instead of regular, as that is what I had in my freezer. I baked mine in a tube pan, and decorated around the edges with fresh blueberries and lemon slices. So pretty! Thanks for sharing your recipe Allie!

Easy Paradise Smoothie

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2014
I used fresh pineapple & strawberries. I added a small can of pineapple juice to make up for using fresh pineapple instead of canned with juice. This is a nice, refreshing and tasty smoothie.

Peach Brulee

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2014
I used 2 fresh peaches, peeled, pitted and halved. Topping was enough to cover all four halves - probably would have been enough for another 2 halves as well. Be sure to keep an eye on them while broiling, as the pecans can burn quickly. Might add a dab of butter to each peach halve next time. Served this with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream, and even my non-dessert eating hubby enjoyed this!
