Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2002
I love cookies & Biscotti's are my favorites. Today I made 4 new ones I found at this site, this was not the best one. It has a nice light flavor, but almost to light. All I could taste was the pistachio. I had 5 friends taste & they agreed. I ended up putting a melted powder suger & butter drizzle on top to add flavor. It made them look pretty too. Next time I will double the vanilla & almond extract. I also made 3 logs instead of two. They were a nice size and you get more cookies. I will double the recipe completly next time for more cookies since your going through the time to make them.

Cinnamon Hazelnut Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2002
This one is a keeper! I did coarsely chop the Hazelnuts as suggested by another review. It helps from the cookies breaking when you slice. Next time I may even add an extra dash of cinnamon. Thanks for sharing.

Brownie Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2002
I made 4 biscotti recipes I found here today. My 5 tasters said this was the best. I didn't change a thing and don't need to. The glaze is a nice touch. Thanks for passing it along.

Pear Salad with Raspberry Cream

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2003
I served this as the first course for New Years Eve dinner party. It's so pretty. You either like this kind of salad or not. Those who do loved this, and even the guest that don't care for this sort of thing did eat a little. I used red pears and kept the skins on for color. I used low-sugar raspberry preserves and light sour cream. I added a little water to the dressing since it was thick. I also sprinkled store bought glazed pecans on top with the fresh raspberries and BB bits. I did not add any cheese, and we didn't miss it. I made them all ahead on thier plates & kept in the frige til served. Then I just drizzled the dressing on top. Easy, pretty and just like a fine restaurant. Thanks for sharing.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2003
Based on other reviews I used this recipe as a starting point so I don't know if my 5 star review is really earned. I felt the recipe would be to plain without some spices added so heres what I did. I used ready made crust by Mrs Smith. I added 1 teasp. vanilla, 1 teasp. cinnamon, dash of nutmeg, and 4 ground cloves. I poured the mixture over the apples and put the top crust over like a traditional pie. My husband loved the end results.

Hot Spinach and Artichoke Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2003
This was GREAT! I make it all the time now. I have used seasond Feta & even low fat Feta. I never measure anything when I make it so I know I add more Artichoke hearts than listed. I just slip it in the oven until warm with whatever I am cooking along with it no matter what temp. the oven is on. Thanks

Black Forest Mini Cheesecakes

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2003
Great, pretty desert. I make allot of cheesecakes and I really liked how these could travel with out a spring pan that I never get the bottom back. Easy to make for a large party too. I did think that they tasted more like a mouse, I also had to cook for an additional 10 min. They came out of the oven nice & high but when they cooled the sunk in the middle. When you add the SC topping no one could notice. I used the standard muffin size cups but next time I will go one size smaller (not mini). I think that will make the wafer be a crust for the whole thing rather than just the middle. It does look very X-Mas like, but you could top with any fruit filling to change the color. I will make often.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2003
My hubby tasted and said "Killer". I don't think fruit choice matters. I used more Kiwi, red apple and granny smith, cantelope,straw berry & maderine orange. I cut out the white sugar and used berry jam. The chips went fast so make extra. I did them like another reviewer. I sprayed both sides while they were whole tortillas. Stacked them on top of each other, sliced wedges with a pizza cutter and tossed them all at once in a zip lock with cin. sugar. Went fast & easy. I also kept the fruit in bigger chunks so it wouldn't get mushy. This is a nice change from the usual fruit bowl.

Mary's Roasted Red Pepper Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2003
Yum, Yum. As mentioned I added more onion, garlic & dijon. I also snuck in a few tablespoons of grated parm. cheese. I topped it off with sliced roasted red peppers to look pretty and, served with assorted crackers and veggies. My guest loved it.

Bonnie's Fruit Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2003
This was a bust. I had to throw it away. Thank goodness I had Annie's fruit Salsa receipe as a back up just in case. I am a good baker but I might have made an error, the directions were not clear. Should I have whipped the whipping cream first? I just poured it in the mixer. It curdeled. The taste was light and no big deal. I think the standered fruit dip of equal parts of marshmellow fluff with cream cheese is much better.

Spinach Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2003
This was pretty good but needs something. First of all it doesn't tell you what kind of vinegar. I used white wine. I wonder what kind it should have been, maybe that's why they didn't have alot of taste. I did not use the sugar, why would you? And I don't think the butter added anything but calories. I think fresh spinach would have had alot more taste so I will try that and add some dijon musturd. They did not get rave reviews like my traditional deviled eggs do. The recipe needs help but gives you a starting point.

Mocha Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2003
I took the advise of others when making this, which is why I am giving it 4 stars. If I made it as the recipe reads I would have scored it lower. I cut the coffee measurement in 1/2. Even in doing that they have a strong flavor. If you like dark chocolate you will love them. I was afraid they would be to strong so I drizzled the melted semi sweet chocolate and when that was cool also drizzled melted milk chocolate on top. I will maybe make again but am still looking for a great mocha biscotti or coffee flavored biscotti.

Chocolate Cherry Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2003
Very good & very different. I make many different biscotti and this is one I will make over & over. I really don't even like chocolate & cherry together but was munching on these. I did make a few changes. First WHAT ARE CANDIED CHERRIES? I could not find anything actually called that in 2 stores so I used dried chopped cherries. Also I dived the dough into 3 loaves. They took 30-35 min. to cook. The cookies were 2 1/2 - 3 in. long. Nice enough size and gave me more cookies. They keep together really good when cutting too.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies IV

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2004
This is a wonderful recipe! I am a cookie monster, and was looking for a friend on a heart healthy diet that was missing her morning cookies. She loved them, and so did my husband who hates anything low fat and CC chip cookies are his favs. I did everything like the recipe reads, but added 1/4 cup extra C.chips. I only got 65 cookies and they were 1/2 dollare size, I could not imagin how small they would have to be to get 100 cookies like it say's. The best low fat, low cal., no cholesterol cookie I have found thus far. Thanks

Double Chocolate Biscotti II

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2004
Great recipe for the heart smart cookie lover! The only thing I changed was I used 5 ounces of MILK chocolate chips I had on hand instead of chopping up a candy bar. It was faster & easier. I also sliced them thinner, at the end I had 46 biscotti. This cut all the calories, fat, ect information in half.

Amaretto Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2007
This was really good and alot of taste for a low sodium diet. I changed very little. I added chopped fresh Rosemary to the butter and spread this paste under the skin along with rubbing it on the outside of the skin. To the drippings I added no sodium chicken granulated flavoring (it's like boulion with out all the salt, found in any grocery store)reduced the drippings then added some flour to thicken. You don't have to be on a low sodium diet to like this dish.

Olive-Cucumber Finger Sandwiches

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
I don’t feel this is a memorable appetizer. Yes it was good but nothing special. Instead of going through the trouble you can purchase any spreadable flavored cream cheese. This recipe is all about the presentation not really the ingredients. I toasted the bread lightly, but after a while they get soggy. I wouldn’t bother with this again but it’s good for beginners.
