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.

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!

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.

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!!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

Pastry Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2003
This was DELICIOUS! I loved it and so did everyone else. The only thing I would suggest is if you are using it as a filling, spoon out some of the bread from the top of the bottom layer so that you can get more in there and not have it get all over the place. When I was frosting my cake it was spilling out the sides so it made frosting a little bit of a pain. I filled one 9" two layer cake and one 8.5" X 12.5" cake with this recipe, no left overs though!

Authentic Mexican Tortillas

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2003
I was just browsing in the Mexican section and found this recipe. I am Mexican and yes, as another reviewer suggested, lard is the best way to make them for "authentic" taste, but honestly, who needs all that fat??? In the beginning my mother used to make them with Lard, but since my dad found out his cholesterol level was so high, my mom started to make them with shortening. I have also always made them with shortening and I cannot imagine now having them any other way. This is a great recipe and a suggestion to you all: try the butter flavored shortening, it makes them taste great! For a great alternative, you can substitute sugar and cinnamon for the salt, makes healthier type of bunelos! Oh and for those reviewers that say these were too tough, you have to realize that you have to use extremely hot water, as hot as your hands can handle. I hope this helps!

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2003
This was a great recipe. I only made one eggplant, but I also made Chicken Parmesan with this recipe. Before I put the eggplant in the oven though, I did browned each side a little in a pan and then put it in the baking dish. I didn't have mozzerella cheese on hand like I thought, so instead I layered the eggplant in the baking dish with a slice of Provolone, it was sooo delicious. I also shredded a bit of Monterey Jack over the top of the last layer of eggplant. I think the basil added a great touch, I just wish I would have sprinkled it on every layer. Oh and one more thing, I also sprinkled Tasetefully Simples Garlic Garlic Seasoning, it added a little extra zing.

Mimi's Slumgullion

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2003
I ended up making this recipe completely by accident since I was actually looking to make sausage and potato soup but I didn't read far enough ahead to realize this wasn't soup! I am so glad I tried it though because this recipe is great!! I didn't add the green peppers because my husband doesn't like them, but I did add whole uncooked green beans. The first time I made them I added the green beans when I added the sausage. Now I add them after the onion has been frying for a few minutes. Great recipe Christopher!

Beef Marinade I

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2003
This marinade is "delish". I have tried it on several different cuts of meat and we love it. I don't like the flavor of the soy sauce too much so I tend to add only a tablespoon of that and then about a tablespoon or two of seasoned salt to the mixture. Also for those that use this on a grill, I have also added smoke flavoring to the mixture, and YUMMY!!

Autumn Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2003
I LOVE this recipe! If you are an apple & cheesecake lover, then don't hesitate to make this, it is awesome! I cut up my apples into small pieces. Also, instead of chopping up the pecans, I shredded them using a cheese shredder. I didn't use more than a few pecans but it was still awesome. Thanks for the wonderful recipe Stephanie!
