Naan

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2014
I love this version of this recipe with less flour (4 1/2 cups must be a typo). I have done this recipe several times now in my bread machine and it is soooo easy and so good. I don't use packets of yeast in my bread machine. Therefore, I use 2 t. of bread machine yeast. 3 1/3 - 3 1/2 cups of bread flour. For the bread machine I prepare the dry mixture first (flour, salt and mix together) for the wet mixture I use HOT water and mix in the sugar, and add the milk. Then pour the wet into bread machine first, add dry mixture on top, make a well in the center and add the yeast. I start the machine (dough setting) and once things are mixing together a bit, I add the beaten egg to the center, close the lid and let the machine do the rest of the mixing and rising. When done, I turn the dough out onto flour and cut into 12 equal pieces. Roll out into 7-8" rounds like tortillas (no need to pinch into two balls). I place the first 4 on a platter separate each layer until all rolled out. Cover with another layer of parchment and a towel. Let rise for 30 min. Start grill, cook each side for 1-2 minutes. They will bubble and get some grill marks, flip. Done! They are quick, easy. Your hands-on time will be measuring (10 min) and rolling (15-20 min). The rest is passive time.

Hot Italian Sausage

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
This recipe is just super! I have use it in pork and turkey mostly, depending on what I have on hand. I has a really authentic blend of spices that I just love. Most of the time I just do small batches, and then I use a morter and pestal to blend the oil, fennel, red pepper and anise. Thank you for sharing this recipe. It is definitely a goto in my recipe book!

Three Cheese Spaghetti Pie

Reviewed: May 21, 2007
I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings but... I am sorry to say this was really terrible! Perhaps it was the fact that I love the ORIGINAL version of Spaghetti Pie (and there are many variations) or the fact that by adding a pie crust, to pasta adds a multitude of fat, calories and carbs. I thought I would give it a try in case it would 'add more' to an already great recipe. WRONG! Putting hot noodles in a pie shell wasn't a good idea. It was pointless to add a crust to pasta. Did you just hear the words, "Spaghetti Pie" and thought it HAD to be in a pie crust? Oh and there is another reviewer who stated that a 'pie shell' is not a 'pie crust', and inferred that a 'pie shell' is just a pie plate... Google 'pie shell' it's the same as a 'pie crust'. AND you don't put the type of pan in the ingredients! I would much rather have my Spaghetti Pie and a piece of garlic bread! And, of course a salad:)

Curried Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2007
I really enjoy the flavor of curry. Some people say that curry is spicy. I have never thought that. You can get dishes with curry that are spicy. But I never thought that curry itself was all that spicy. I made this dish as the recipe state only substituting vegetable broth for the chicken broth (we have a vegetarian in the family). My husband had never had curry before and didn't know what to expect, neither had my resident vegetarian. This recipe was a HUGE hit. We all enjoyed it very much. I really thought this recipe would be a great addition to the Thanksgiving table. Not only was it delicious, it was really pretty to look at. Thank you for sharing this really excellent recipe. We will be making this one again.

Divine Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2007
I really loved this recipe. My son loved it and so did my hubby. It was terrific and really easy! My only changes (after reading other reviews) I didn't do all the steps. I just cooked the ground beef, onion, celery, etc. Just made it a one pot deal. I used really lean ground beef so there was no need to drain. I didn't have time to cook it for 6 hours, but it was fantastic just the way it was after 3 hours. Besides I don't like my ground beef cook to a mealy consistancy anyway. I didn't change the seasonings at all. I love bay and I love my sauce to taste like something other than tomato. I did add a tablespoon of sugar, because I like my sauce to have a 'balanced' flavor. I was surprised the recipe didn't call for salt or pepper. I didn't add it and it didn't need it. Happy cooking! Laura Behrendt

Banana Pudding Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2006
This was a wonderful recipe. Everyone who has tried it has loved it. It's very moist. I have made it twice now and the second time I made it I added 4 oz of softened cream cheese to the glaze. It was delicious. Both ways are great. You are gonna love this cake. I now have 2 bundt cake recipes that are winners! The other is the Chocolate Cavity Maker Cake on this site.

Shrimp Fondue

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2005
I just wanted to put in my 2 cents on this recipe. And made (just the way it is) would be really boring. I am surprised the reviews were so good. But it is a good base recipe. I have had it with cream of shrimp soup. 1/2 lb grated swiss and 2-4 TBS of dry white wine and a small package of frozen baby shrimp. To me, this screams "holiday appetizer"!

Drip Beef Sandwiches

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2005
If I could give this recipe more stars I would. My whole family raved and raved about how good it was. My hubby even had a twinkle in his eye. We had roast, chive mashed potatoes and veggies the first night. Second night we had the tacos with shredded roast, refried beans, fried onions, cheddar cheese, lettuce, sour cream. It was yummy! Now tonight we are going to have french onion soup, like one of the reviewers suggested. We can't wait. Love this recipe!

Orange Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2005
I am sorry to go against the crowd, becaue everyone on here seems to rave about it. This was just not for me. I will never make it again. It turned out fine. Everyone who ate it said it was great. But it just seemed like 'cake' to me, 'lemon cake'. I prefer the 'Cavity Maker Chocolate Cake' recipe I found on this site. Instead of people saying to me, "This is really good, thank you." (lemon cake response), people said, "OMG this is really good, can I have the recipe!" (Cavity Maker response) People are still talking about THAT cake.

Roast Chicken with Cracked Peppercorn Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2005
Well... I don't know what to say, other than I think this recipe has some potential. Vermouth must be salty, because this dish was VERY salty and VERY peppery with 1 Tablespoon of cracked peppercorns (and yes I did crack my own peppercorns). I didn't hate this, but didn't love it. The chicken was moist. I give it 2 stars because I probably won't make it again, but it was edible. Sorry, I really had high hopes for this recipe, it sounded so good.

Stephan's Broiled Salmon Pesto

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2005
I'd give this more stars if I could. I made this last night and it was outstanding! Everyone loved it! It was perfection. I would serve this to company. I had it cold for breakfast this morning and it was sensational even cold like Stephan said. Thanks so much for the wonderful and versatile recipe.

Sorry, but we only thought this recipe was so-so. I'm sure others loved it. But it just lacked something.

Sesame Oil Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2005
Wow! These were awesome! There is a special place in my heart for sesame oil and now I know why. So aromatic, so full of flavor, so wonderful! I did take one person's suggestion and put some toasted sesame seeds on them and thickened the sauce with 1 TBSP of cornstarch and 1/4 cup water and poured it over the rice we served with the wings. Great recipe. Sure to impress anyone.

Amazing Calavacita and Pork

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2005
I'd give this recipe 3-stars if I ever thought I would make it again. The family thought it was boring. I thought the Zucchini was wayyyy overcooked and the dish was swimming in water! It tasted just okay. I felt like I was eating leftovers and could not get over that I actually purchased groceries for this. Overall it was edible, just not repeatable.

Dill Pickles

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2005
I have never attempted pickle making before. I tried this recipe and have been waiting to open a jar. I thought you had to wait 8 weeks to try them. But I recently read that someone ate them 2 days later! Did I do something wrong or read the recipe wrong? Or are you supposed to eat them WITHIN 8 weeks? If someone can tell me, I would appreciate it. Thanks.

Sicilian Meat Roll

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2005
This is definitely a 5-star recipe. We have been making this for years and love it! It's a tried and true, never-fail, company pleasing, favorite. You can even prepare it (not bake) in the morning or night before and store it the fridge until it's time to cook it. You do need to cook a little longer since you are starting with very cold ingredients. Update: I just made this again last night. The original recipe that I have has 2 cloves of garlic and 3/4 tsp of oregano. It also uses shredded mozzerella in the middle and slices on the top. Wonderful recipe! I'm glad it's on here.

Easy Manicotti Florentine

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2005
Easy? Yes. Edible? Barely. No flavor. Pasta has a wierd, rubbery-mealy texture. If you like Manicotti, you should pass on this recipe. It's just bland and boring. Even if you perk up the sauce with some seasonings, the recipe loses it with the texture of the pasta. Sorry, but our family didn't care for this at all:(
