Sweet Corn Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2007
I doubled the recipe (but left the butter as stated) and cooked it in an 8 x 10" pan inside the 9 x 12" pan. Very moist and really delicious. I serve it along side chili or Mexican food. Always a great hit!

Brussels Sprouts Gratin

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
Excellent sprouts! Family ate them up. Just wish there was a lower calorie version of this. The cream really makes this dish wonderful.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
I've tried many recipes, but this ones the best if you follow it exactly as written. Every oven is a little different, so I had to bake them for about 13 minutes. Delicious!

Country Green Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2011
I've made this twice now: once exactly as written and once without the butter. Delicious either way, so I'll leave out the butter next time. It's important to use fresh, crisp green beans. A little leftover ham makes these beans just right!

Classic Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2011
I followed this recipe exactly and found these rolls to be tasty and beautiful. The texture is reminescent of those soft, homemade schoolhouse rolls-- tasty, but not exactly healthy. I'll try this next time with white whole wheat flour with some added gluten. For an old-fashioned treat, these rolls are delicious & easy to make.

Pineapple Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2011
Subtle pineapple flavor gives this banana bread a nice tropical twist. We really enjoyed it - exactly as written.

Spooky Witches' Fingers

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
I substituted 3/4 cup granular sugar for the confectioners', which worked just fine. Secret to light shortbread is to whip the butter with sugar until light (NEVER melt the butter). Then beat in all the wet ingredients. Then fold in the sifted dry ingredients. I also recommend chilling the batter overnight. Like another reviewer, I recommend "gluing" the almonds on with a bit of strawberry or raspberry jam before baking. I dusted these with powdered sugar after cooling to give them a "musty, mildewy" look. Very effective.

Diane's Colcannon

Reviewed: May 9, 2010
Proving, once again, that bacon makes everything taste good! Who knew that I could get my kids to eat cabbage? I was ready to serve it up before adding the potatoes. The combination of flavors and textures is very nice - plus, it's reasonably easy to make. I left off the final 1/4 cup of butter because it really didn't need it and we certainly don't need the extra fat.

Black Bean, Corn and Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2009
Only made 1 change: used frozen corn in place of canned. This recipe is both quick and delicious. Great with some homemade cornbread. I was a little surprised that the kids loved it, too. My only complaint: definitely doesn't serve 6, more like 4.

Pesto Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2009
Very authentically Genovese. I recommend that the pine nuts gets toasted first. Adjust salt after tasting. Using a freshly grated good quality Parmesan or Romano makes a huge difference. Also, adjust the garlic level to taste. Delicious.

Fresh Tomato Shrimp Pasta

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2009
Delicious! I can't wait until my summer garden tomatoes are ready this year. Using fresh herbs are a must. I also added significantly more than 1 cup of fresh spinach leaves. This makes a quick and reasonably healthy meal. I'll be making this all summer long when my tomatoes and herbs are ready!

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2009
Great way to use up leftover rice. Delicious with or without raisins. Definitely good comfort food.

Oatmeal Pancakes II

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
Another great way to use an immersion blender! Makes cleaning up so much easier. As far as the recipe goes, my family loved the fragrance and the simplicity of these pancakes. We'll be coming back to this recipe often.

Ciabatta

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2012
Made it exactly as written (excepted baked on a Silpat slid onto a baking stone). If you're used to handling "normal" yeast dough, this is a little tricky to deal with since it's not kneaded to an elastic state. Use flour generously. Whatever you do, do NOT skimp on the salt. The salt is what makes this dough manageable, such as it is. You'll have a huge gooey mess if you don't add enough salt. You will love the results! Reminds me a bit of those fresh Tuscan loaves from Italy!

Dip For The Stars

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
This is an appetizer with excellent visual appeal. For a little variety, try substituting goat cheese for the feta. It's wonderful!

Peanut Butter Pie VII

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
My 10-year-old immediately proclaimed, "This one's a keeper, Mom!" I followed the proportions exactly. Only change I made was in the assembly: Put in most of the peanut butter/sugar mixture in the bottom of the baked crust. Save a couple of tablespoons for the topping. Another note: take care in spreading the meringue on the custard. For a very stiff meringue, trying to spread it over the custard can displace the custard, causing it to push itself over the edge of the crust. I suggest you drop small amounts over the entire custard surface, then spread carefully to create a uniform covering. Really very easy and very tasty.

Out of this World Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
Excellent flavor! DO NOT FORGET TO RINSE AND DRY BIRD BEFORE ROASTING. It made for a very salty gravy. I won't forget next time.

Truck-Stop Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: May 25, 2008
Great and simple! Uses much less baking powder (and therefore less sodium) than my old recipe. Also delicious with blueberries.

Ahi Poke Basic

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2007
Real poke should have some seaweed, but I think it's a type that you're not going to find on the mainland (except maybe around SF). This recipe was a fantastic "mainland imitation." I would cut back on the soy to suit your taste, but be sure to use a good quality soy since so much of this flavor is based on that seasoning.

Microwave Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2007
So easy and super quick that it should be against the law! Nothing with this good with this many calories should be so easy to make. Timing should be adjusted to individual microwaves. I poured it out onto a Silpat. Came out beautifully and disappeared about as quickly as I made it.
