Blondies II

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2004
Terrific! I made these brownies today but I used a chocolate brownie frosting instead of the peanut butter one listed. This is a realy keeper of a recipe, and will be included in my Christmas cookie baking. An afterthought: if you decide to use chocolate frosting like I did, decoratively drizzle the peanut butter frosting over the bars.

Cinnamon Rolls III

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2003
These were extremely easy and very, very delicious. We just had a big, bad snowstorm here on Long Island, so eating these on a snowy, Sunday morning was perfect. They really are much better than store-bought. And if you don't have a bread machine, make them by hand - you will not be disappointed. As another reviwer said, if you had trouble with this recipe, it must have been your house temperature or something, or maybe inexperience, but these were divine.

Herbed Batter Rolls

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2003
These were very good rolls, and I gratefully extend my thanks to the author. However, there are a few pointers I'd like to share which may help other readers: 1) You may need to add more herbs, they could've used a "kick" 2) I used my 6-muffin jumbo tin and it worked well;I would not have have enough batter for the 12-muffin tin, unless I made these super small, and if you do that, what's the point? 3) Don't drop them by spoonfuls into the tins - wet your hand and grab blobfuls, it's much easier! This recipe is a keeper and we enjoyed them last night with spaghetti & meatballs.

Sour Cream-Rhubarb Squares

Reviewed: May 24, 2003
These bars are very tasty. Be warned: when you are reading the printed recipe it can be confusing; the list of ingredients read from left to right (that's how you read it to coincide with the steps). The only change I made was I whirled frozen rhubarb in my food processor because I just don't like stringy foods and they turned out wonderful. They were cake-like and golden brown. Absolutely perfect with a cup of coffee or tea on this very damp, chilly, rainy day. Also, your house will smell marvelous while these bake! Enjoy.

Best Egg Rolls

Reviewed: May 8, 2003
These were the first egg rolls I've ever made and I must say they were impressive. Instead of chopping everthing up (carrots, etc.) I bought a bag of coleslaw mix and used that. They were delicious, but they are not very "jazzy." To quote Emeril, "You gotta kick these up a notch or two." We experimented and added hot sauce to the mix, and next time (we WILL make them again) we are going to add garlic, etc. We don't like things crazy spicey but these egg rolls as is are just way too bland. We give the author 4 stars because we never would have made these without her help and ideas. Thank you!

Chicken Satay

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2003
I just made this today with these changes: I made it into a chicken salad-type dish instead of on a grill, used only 1 tbsp. of peanut butter, and added a bit more garlic. This was delicious and the family loved it. We had it over white rice with blanched-crisp fresh green beans on the side. MMMMM!

Chicken Oreganato

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2003
I made this on the day it was posted for "Meal of the Day" because it sounded tasty and easy. Well, I thought the chicken thawing in plastic in the fridge was a whole cut-up chicken, not cutlets! So,I had to improvise by lowering the heat to 350 and I cooked them for about 20 minutes. They were still wonderful and my family really, realy liked them. This is one I'm keeping, and I will try it with other chicken pieces too.

Maple Syrup Casserole Made in Heaven

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2003
I prepared this recipe last night and we ate it this morning. It really was delicious - the perfect brunch with a fresh cup of coffee. However, I made one change: I added only 1 cup of maple syrup. Adding more than that will make it cloyingly sweet. It still baked perfectly for 45 minutes at 375. The author did not state whether to cover it or not, I chose not to and it was just perfect - will definately make again. Thank you!

Spicy Orange Beef

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2002
My family loves this recipe. I did make the following changes: I used much less orange peel, doubled everything else, and left out the peas and marmalade - if you do use the marmalade it will be way too "orangey" flavored. We've made it twice and loved it both times. It cooks quickly and is very spicy doubled.

Jean's Marinated Mushrooms

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2002
Delicious. The only change I made was I added 1 teaspoon of sugar instead of the 1 tablespoon called for in the recipe. My family really enjoys these mushrooms and I made them again today to go with orange-roasted pork loin and mashed potatoes. Thank you Kathleen!

Unbelievable Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2002
I just finished baking these rolls and my house smells wonderful. They look and taste great too. I read thru the reviews and I'd like to offer a little help to those who had difficulty with this recipe: you MUST use margarine NOT butter, & add more flour while you knead this dough a bit. This is not a Baking 101 recipe, if it was, there'd be more detail. These were delicious and I hope you give them another try, as my family really liked them. They are a "keeper" - thank you Sherlie.

Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2002
I made this recipe today, but I steamed the broccoli and didn't use the bacon or sesame seeds and it was still delicious. Thank you Alyson! :o)
