Cajun Seafood Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2003
This is AWESOME! Can't wait to try it with chicken. Cut this recipe in half to accomodate just my husband and myself, there is no way our kids would have been able to eat this. It was hot but it had great flavor. That swiss gives it good flavor. Don't be afraid to add some gaaaaarlic!

Churros

Reviewed: May 7, 2003
These were GREAT! I should have doubled the recipe because it turned out they were not enough, hehe. Make sure you fry them till they are a golden brown, they don't come out as chewy. I used my Pampered Chef Easy Accent Decorator with the largest flower tip attachment, they were thin but they were so yummy and cute! Also, if you don't mess with them until they are ready to be turned, they shouldn't fall apart.

Edie's Patatosalata

Reviewed: May 7, 2003
This recipe was okay. I was looking forward to something with a little more "umph". It could have just been because I let it sit a day and a half in the fridge, not sure. Some people liked it but it wasn't like they were all crazy over it.

Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2003
Oh my, this pecan pie was outstanding! I am not too big on pecan pie, but my husband and my mother are. I mostly made it for my husband to accompany a very southern meal. He was in love with it! I too didn't have dark corn syrup on hand so I used light corn syrup and also I used 1/4 of a cup less sugar than it calls for because personally I am not too into very sweet Pecan Pie and it turned out VERY delicious. Try it!

Apple Cheddar Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2003
This bread was okay but I was a little dissappointed with it after all the great reviews. It felt like it was missing something... If you are looking for a cake that is not so sweet, this is a great cake but I would probably add a whole cup of sugar if I made it again.

London Broil I

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2003
I tried this on Tri Tip but didn't have time to let it sit over night...WOW!!! This is a "keeper" in our family! Everytime I try a new recipe I ask the family if it's a keeper or not and it was unanimous! Also, I ended up broiling it in the oven.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2003
A definate winner at our table!!! We loved it! The only minus to it I guess you could call it, would be that the top layer was a bit dry for some and the bottom was very juicy. My husband suggested maybe next time I should add a little ketchup to the top of the loaf or something so that it's evenly juicy. I thought it was great - and as other reviewers have said, I probably wouldn't make any alterations except for maybe the little bit of ketchup over the top of it as my husband suggested.

Pasta with Pesto and Scallops

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2003
A definate five stars! I have made this dish time and time again for my family and they all love it, down to the pickiest eatter. I didn't tell my kids it was sea food because one of them thinks she doesn't like sea food so she thought it was chicken and ate it all up. I usually add more mushrooms only because we are mushroom lovers. Thanks for the great recipe Nancy and Terry!

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2003
"OH MY GOD...THIS PIZZA IS AWESOME!!" exclaimed my husband. We are a big pizza eating family and this was by far the BEST pizza sauce ever. I will have to agree with those that said to either completely eliminate the honey or cut it in half. I used half of it and still thought it was too sweet so I added lots of garlic salt to take away the sweetness. I will make this recipe for years to come. Thank you very much Angie for your great recipe!!

Happy Birthday Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2003
My family doesn't like too much sweet in their desserts so this cake was perfect. I made it for my sister's birthday and everyone loved it. The only thing which I didn't like was that the bread was too thick - but that's just my opinion. If you are looking for a light fluffy cake, this is not the cake to make. But if you are looking for something with just a hint of sweetness, this cake is perfect.

Pizza Dough II

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2003
I made only half the recipe (with the exception of the salt & olive oil) for a 15 inch pizza stone. The crust was very yummy! I play with the recipe a lot, like adding garlic and shreded parmasean cheese or herbs (parsley, basil, oregano). I reccomend this dough for anyone wanting to make a great homemade pizza!

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2002
I've used this several times for Thanksgiving (this is our Thanksgiving Only Stuffing) & everyone LOVES it. Follow this recipe to the T & use fresh herbs (remember to double them) for a really delicious flavoring. **I was just making my Thanksgiving list & thought I'd give some updated suggestions since I've been making this for 6 yrs. now. 1. I always use fresh herbs, the presentation, taste & aroma is wonderful! 2. I've tried different apples & have found that the granny smiths are the best, along with fuji & braeburn. 3. I can't always find turkey sausage links so one year I started using Turkey Kielbasa (I just chopped it up really fine with my food chopper) ~ outstanding! 4. I've made this w/ different types of bread. I really like the sourdough bread personally. I've found that somewhat stale baguettes are MUCH easier to work with, cause you can slice them up pretty easy w/o crust flying everywhere or w/o having to smoosh your sliced bread too much. (I usually cut the bread a few days before to let it get hard.) 5. I never stuff this in the turkey, I usually make it separately in a tray. I continuously check it because the turkey stock has dried out on me once before, which made for a nasty burnt stuffing. And one last thing, this isn't your typical mushy-glop that most people are used to, so if you don't think you'll like a dryer type of stuffing, then I'd suggest using LOTS of stock.
