Baklava

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2005
This is the second time I have tried this recipe and it just keeps getting easier. A few tricks I learned this time: Make the sauce first, before you start to do anything else with the baklava. Let it cook while you are preparing and putting everything together, and let it cool while the baklava is cooking. I got the sauce started, and then chopped and prepared the nuts (I used a variety of nuts; almonds, walnuts and pecans), and rolled out my dough. I lay out my phyllo dough before I start layering and cut it to the shape of the pan I am making it in. This made the layering SO much easier. I put a piece of plastic wrap over the phyllo dough and then the damp towel. This helps keep the dough from sticking to the towel. I made an extra 1/2 of the sauce recipe and it seems like the perfect amount (I doubled it last time and it seemed like too much). I also used about 2 sticks of butter instead of 1. It took me about an hour total to prepare and assemble. CUT the baklava after assembly and before cooking, and top with butter to make everything smooth and “pretty”. Put the cooled sauce on as soon as you pull the baklava out of the oven. I let it adsorb overnight. Easy and wonderful!! It tastes like the baklava I buy in the Greek stores downtown and a LOT cheaper per piece. I think this cost me around $15 to make and I yeilded 3 dozen pieces(it would be less if I did not use almonds and pecans). I will be making this for years to come!

Popovers

Reviewed: May 12, 2005
This recipe was SO easy and SO delicious. People were eating them before the dinner was even served! I added some fresh thyme and a clove of minced garlic, and they were a hit!! I will be making them for many years to come. One tip, follow the directions EXACTLY with preheating the muffin pans and cooking time. DO NOT open the oven until they are done baking and you will have an impressive bread to serve with any meal!!

Oatmeal Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2005
So easy to make. I sprayed the muffin tins with flour baking spray and the muffins came right out of the tins, no liners needed. I always look for new ways to add oatmeal to my recipes and this was a great way. These muffins were wonderful, but next time I am going to try using baking splenda and oil substitue to try and make the recipe even healthier. These warm muffins with a little immitaion butter spray fulfilled my blueberry muffin craving. One time I was out of blueberries and used 1 cup drained crushed pineapple. I think it came out sweeter and more moist than the original. They were a hit. I will make again for sure.

Three Cheese Garlic Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2007
I made this for Easter and it was a hit! I made a few changes though. I put a layer of provolone and romano in the middle along with the cheddar. I also used a garlic press and pressed teh garlic into the milk so the press and the liquid would flavor the milk. This way I did not have to worry about someone biting down on a piece of garlic. Other than those slight modifications, I baked everything for about 1/2 hour longer than recomended and it was wonderful. Easy and delicious. Will make for many years.

Cinnamon Rolls III

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2008
I've made this for my family and for overnight guests as a special treat and every time they disappear in minutes. If I'm short on time I skip making the dough and I unthaw and roll out a loaf frozen bread dough. Easy to make and everyone will enjoy.

Four Cheese Macaroni

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
I made this for some friends who brought their 3 year old son over. I though, what kid doesn't like Macaroni? And I was right! It was a total hit. the 5 of us ate 3/4 of the pan that night. I did change a few things though. I omitted the egg like some of the other reviews suggested and used 2 cups of half and half instead of 1 1/2 cups. I also used 4 cups of shredded cheese total, a combination of sharp and mild cheddar and monteray jack. I also used the whole 16 oz of processed cheese. 1/2 of the block I cubed and mixed in with the noodles and the other 1/2 i cut into slices and laid on top once the noodles were poured into the pan. On top of the processed cheese slices, I put a layer of provolone cheese (about 6 slices) and then the final layer of remaining shredded cheese. I can't say enough how great it came out. Golden brown and bubbly. My husband said this one is a keeper and I can make it any time I want :-) Thanks for the hit recipe I'll be making this for years to come.

Molasses Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
I fell in love with a Molasses cookie at Starbucks year ago but they quit serving them. Since then I have been on a search for a Molasses cookie that would satisfy me. I finally found that cookie! I didn't melt the shortening, I just added it to the kitchen aid with the rest of the ingredients and let it stir away. The only other thing i change was I used a very course sugar that I found at a candy store and rolled the cookies in that. I made these at christmas and they tasted like an old fashioned holiday, not to mention my favorite discontinuted Starbucks cookie! This one is a keeper that I will make all year round.

The Best Meatballs

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2010
I followed another review's suggestion and baked for 30 minutes at 350 instead of frying. they came out PERFECT. Made for 24 golf ball sized meatballs. 12 for now and froze 12 uncooked for later use. I made a few adjustments. I used 1 teaspoon dried italian seasoning in place of the fresh parsley. I also used only 2/3 cup of bread and moistened with milk instead of water. Authentic italian meatballs that will now be in my family for years to come!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2012
Throw away the Bisquick you will never want to make pancakes any other way again. I ran out of Bisquick and thought, there has to be another way to make pancakes. I found this recipe, made it this morning, and was hooked. Sweet, fluffy, melt in your mouth. They are VERY filling but oh so wonderful. Thank you for a recipe that will now be in my family for years!

Kale, Quinoa, and Avocado Salad with Lemon Dijon Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2013
I made it without the kale only because I don't usually have this on hand. This recipe is AMAZING!! Hubby loved it too. I've made it 3 times in 2 weeks. I also bought the tri color quinoa from trader joes, same nutritional value but i love the way it looks :)

Beer Battered Onion Rings

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2006
I made these for the super bowl and this recipe came out very good. I used a whole bottle of beer, and extra flour until it was a thick pancake consistency. I added a lot of extra spices. Along with the salt, oregano and garlic powder, I added Jamacian Jerk seasoning, pepper and Franks red hot. Before coating the onions in the batter I tossed the onions with a dry seasoned flour mixture. I used flour, chili powder, salt, pepper and garlic powder. The only other thing I would do next time is cook the onions a litter longer becasue we like them extra crispy. All in all an easy recipe that was a hit!
