Figs and Toasted Almonds Brie

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2006
I made this along with a bunch of other dishes for a party, and this was, by far, the standout of the evening! The only adjustment I made to the recipe was simmering the figs, brown sugar, & vanilla in much more water than the two Tbsp. for about twenty minutes until it turned syrupy. Then I refrigerated this overnight before using on the cheese the next day, letting the figs really absorb the syrup and soften. Heavenly!

Eggnog Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2006
After reading other reviewers' comments, I followed some advice and made the following alterations: I substituted eggnog (and I used 1 cup versus 3/4 cup), and vanilla extract. I added a cup of rum-soaked dried berries (blueberry, cherry, cranberry). I baked in a bundt pan rather than a loaf pan, and watched cooking times very carefully. The results were delicious -- this was a hit at the day-after-christmas-breakfast with my family. Thanks!

Ginger Orange Glazed Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2006
Super-duper! I made a large batch of drumsticks last night using this recipe and it received raves from my guests. I, too, marinated for 24 hours, flipping occasionally. Also, in my opinion the fresh ginger makes all the difference in the world -- mmmm!!

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2006
incredibly delicious and wonderfully simple! i changed the recipe by making a thick, homemade raspberry coulis rather than use the jam, and this dessert sang!!!

Candi's Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2007
these were really tasty. i realized more than halfway thru the recipe that i had no eggs! so, i grabbed a ripe banana and used that as a binder instead. wow! you can taste the banana in the cookie, and my husband said it "would have been Elvis' favorite"! thanks for the recipe :)

Chicken and Shrimp Jambalaya

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2006
Loved it, loved it, loved it! I am a cook who often tinkers with recipes as I follow along in the kitchen, but I left this one exactly as described. My husband and I really enjoyed it, but the true test was when I offered some to my friend from Louisiana. She said this Jambalaya was "very authentic" and "tasty", which is high praise from her, indeed! Kudos!!!

Spinach and Red Chard Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
i thought this was very nice. i am trying to incorporate more soy into my diet, and this recipe is a keeper. i confess, i made it with a combo of tofu & egg (i was worried about the consistency, as some reviewers mentioned), and with a combination i thought it was very good! thanks for adding a completely different recipe to my repitoire!

Pear and Gorgonzola Cheese Pizza

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2006
This was very special! I substituted pecans instead of using walnuts. The combination for cheeses with the nuts and pears was wonderful! The only thing i will do next time is use a thinner, crispier crust as I think that texture will lend itself better to the other ingredients, but that's only my personal opinion. Yum!!

Rich Delights

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2006
These are hurt-your-teeth sweet, and verrrrry sticky, but my husband absolutely loved them and almost ate a tray in one sitting! I had to really keep an eye on these in the oven so they wouldn't burn, but overall was satisfied with the results.

Cranberry Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2006
very tasty. not too sweet, not too tart. next time i think i'll add even more orange flavor to it, but that is simply my preference rather than a recommendation. key words in that last sentence: "next time"!!!
