The World's Best Turkey

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
I have made this turkey for several years. To answer the questions about slits in the bag - I don't. But, I have never seen those instructions on my bags (I use Reynolds brand). Just dust the inside of the bag with flour. My family cannot get enough of the gravy made with these drippings. And the bonus is that I get to have a mimosa on Thanksgiving morning, after the bird goes into the oven (with what's left of the champagne).

Finnish Pulla

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
I had never heard of Pulla before, but this recipe sounded good. And, I'll tell you I was not at all disappointed. This was not hard to make (as yeast breads go), and is fantastic as a breakfast bread. Cardamom is my new favorite spice....

Waldorf Astoria Red Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
This is exactly the recipe my mom has been using for my birthday cakes for decades. I went looking for her copy (clipped from the newspaper in the 70s), and found it only partially legible - so this is quite the find for me. This cake can be a little challenging and time consuming, but SOOOO worth it. The frosting is what really makes this the best - don't shortcut it.

Orange Meltaway Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
I followed the recipe exactly, and I have to say I wasn't wowed. These make decent butter cookies, but not very orangey. I would add more orange extract next time. They are really simple to make, going together really quick.

Mushroom Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2009
This really does make a fantastic sauce. I used it during the holidays with a tenderloin - froze the leftovers and had it with chopped steak. Both times, I caught my 92-yr-old grandma (a tough food critic) wiping the last of it off her plate with her finger. This is definitely a keeper!

Crustless Cranberry Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2008
I took this to a holiday party - and boy did I get wows! The only change I made was to use sliced almonds instead of walnuts. I served this with warm vanilla sauce (as given with the Bread Pudding recipe on this site). Party guests raved, and a normally polite crowd fought over seconds.

Garlic Prime Rib

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2008
Fantastic reviews from my family. I was a little skeptical about the 500 degree oven, but it came out perfectly.

Boston Iced Tea

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2007
I could only find cranberry juice cocktail (which already has sugar), so I decreased the amount of sugar added (to about 1/2 c.). This was great. I served it at a party with lime wedges.

Coconut Macaroons III

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2007
I followed the recipe exactly as written, and am not at all disappointed. I did use sweetened flake coconut, since that was what I had in the house -- but I think that was the intent here, anyway. I also refrigerated the dough for a couple of hours before scooping it out (didn't intend to, just had to stop for a kid emergency). These turned out great. Didn't stick to the parchment. Were great warm from the oven, and almost better the 2nd day. The only thing I think I'll change next time is to bake them a little longer (as others have suggested) to bring out more of the toasted flavor.

Blue Cheese Chicken Wing Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2007
Went over very well at my party. The only change I made was using 2 cans of chicken breast, instead of cooking the real thing. So easy - and still made for a popular dip.

Sauteed Garlic Asparagus

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2007
Have made this a few times. I agree with other reviewers to sub evoo for half the butter. My family is nuts for garlic - and this was a great way to spice up asparagus. Definitely a step up from steamed.

Hasty Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2007
OH MY GOD! This is a chocoholic's dream! I can't believe how easy this is. I added the butter, as others had suggested + a dash of salt. I think next time, I might also add some cinnamon (for a Mexican chocolate flavor).

Pumpkin Fluff Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2006
Big hit at Bunko. I used lite whipped topping & sugar-free pudding -- still fabulous. Would be great as a pastry filling, like another review suggested.

Hot Pizza Dip by 3-A-Day™of Dairy

Took this to a party and was a big hit. I added chopped turkey pepperoni to this -- people couldn't get enough on the roasted garlic Triscuits.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2006
Hard to go wrong with this. Have made it muliple times. I experiment with different add-in flavors (garlic and basil are our favorites). I usually double the recipe so we'll have leftovers later in the week. [It's almost better the next day...]
