Prosciutto Cups

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2005
This was made for a good-bye party and was a huge hit. For anyone who thinks the recipe was a bit bland, make sure you have good prosciutto. Defiantly a keeper and will make again

Eclairs II

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
These eclairs were exceptional!!!!!! My son works for a company that makes the frozen eclairs you buy in the freezer section of your grocery store, so we have eclairs fairly often. This recipe beats those eclairs by a long shot. After you make them the first time, you will understand how easy they really are to make. Try them, you wont be disappointed.

Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2011
Wow...this was fabulous and made the meat so tender. I would have thought that the balsamic would have reduced down a little thicker, but it could have been because I was a little short. I did warm the meat up before I cooked it, I cut down the cooking time a bit because we like med rare, and I let it rest for 10 min. Thank you so much for sharing.

Butter Crescents

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2006
My family and I found this recipe delicious!!! We found it on the sweet side, but not a sweet roll. I made it to go with a spicy chili and it was a nice combination. I only use whole wheat flour and thought it might be heavy but they weren't. I had extra dough and going to try this as a loaf for dinner tonight. I will defiantly make this recipe again. Thanks for sharing.

Zucchini Casserole I

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2012
I have made this many, many times. Has become a staple meal in my house. I did cut the oil back to a heavy 1/8 cup, but other than that, this is delicious with a green salad and fresh bread. Have added veggies or cheese if they were in the fridge, but perfect as written....with the reduction of oil.

Pollo Fajitas

These Fajitas were delicious. Changes were minimal. Used chicken breast, garlic powder because that was all I had on hand and my chili powder was smoked flavored and of coarse extra few dashes of hot sauce. Toped it with sour cream and served it with fried rice. Great, easy and fast meal

Pie Crust IV

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2009
I really liked the way this pie curst turned out. Light, crispy and tasty. For me, it only made one curst so I had to do it twice to make the top. I don't usually rate a recipe if I change it, but I decided to this time. I uses half shortening and half butter. I used a food processor and it was a very light cur. I brushed it with milk and sprinkled a little sugar on top for color and I have to admit this was one of my best crust and I have made a "no-fail" crust for years.

Cut-Out Cookies in a Flower Pot

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2008
These cookies were delicious. They had lots of flavor and a really nice texture. I made these for the 4th of July. I cut out flags and stars and set them in a metal holder and used flag material to cover the oasis. What a beautiful center pice it made and everyone loved eating them off the sticks....even the kids. I was afraid that they would break during transportation to the party but they were very sturdy. I soaked the bamboo skewers in water before sticking them into the cookies and baking them. Thanks for the recipe. They were a lot of fun!!!!

Tangy Glazed Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2011
I don't usually rate a recipe that I have changed so much, but because this technique turned out fabulous, I thought I would rate it. I used skinless, boneless chicken. I didn't have apple jelly so I used Pepper jam. I think this helped to reduce the sweetness other have mentioned. I didn't have OJ so I squeezed a grapefruit, I didn't want to open broth for only 1/2 cup so I added extra grapefruit juice and a some of water. It boiled down to a wonderful thick sauce. Sprinkled cilantro over chicken and spooned the sauce over some rice. Fabulous recipe!!! Thanks for sharing.

Banana Bread V

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2010
This banana bread was light; almost like a regular cake instead of a dense cake. I doubled the recipe; used butter instead of marg and sprinkled some sugar/cinnamon mix over the top before baking since I didn't have nuts. Family and guest loved it. Will defiantly make again!! Thanks for sharing!

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2010
These were EXCELLENT!!! I made the sauce as per the recipe and only used 2 pork chops, so basically the sauce should be doubled. I marinated the pork chops in orange juice a few hours before cooking them and then followed the recipe. Loved them...thanks for sharing.

Peppermint Patties

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2009
WOW!!!! These taste exactly like, if not better than a real peppermint patties!!!! I was concerned that 1 1/2 teaspoons of peppermint would be a little to strong, but it was perfect. I did a mixture of brushing on the chocolate and spooning on the chocolate. Both worked well. To make the spooned on chocolate look decorative, a few min after putting on the chocolate, tap it with a fork once and it puts a very nice design on the top. I think next time I will make them a one bite size. Thank You for a great recipe.
