Make Ahead French Toast

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2005
This didnt turn out very well for me. The sauce turned into a hard, candy mess. Way too sweet for breakfast. I like the french toast part- but the sauce has got to go. I may try what another reviewer suggested- pour maple syrup on it towards the end.

Crab Quiche II

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2005
I have made this basic quiche recipe for years. It is the best recipe I have found. You can add ham, bacon, chicken and broccoli, whatever- it is excellent! I am looking forward to trying it with crab.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2005
This is very good. While I agree it is not a traditional cheesecake, it is a nice twist on pumpkin pie. I made it in a 8x8 glass cake pan and it turned out good. Baked it for about 50 minutes. It is very light and creamy. I might try it with more cream cheese next time, just to see what happens. Update: I made this again for Thanksgiving 2010 and really loved it. I did not add the extra cream cheese, but I added a few more pecans to the crust and still cooked it for 50 minutes. Excellent! A keeper. Another update: made this for Thanksgiving 2011 and didnt have heavy cream, so I used half-n-half and it worked fine. Very creamy!

Mary's Roasted Red Pepper Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2005
Excellent! It makes a ton- but who cares? It is so good, you want a lot of it!! I ended up using a 12oz. jar of peppers and a Mexican blend of cheeses. I also added 1T horseradish to the mix, and puree'ed the whole thing in the food processor. I brought it to an "eat-with-your-hands" dinner party and it was a huge hit. Definitely a keeper!

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2005
This is good, but I would cut the bread crumbs down by half- maybe more. Too many bread crumbs for our taste. I'd also use extra sharp cheddar in place of just sharp cheddar. It is good, but not the very best.

Halibut Divine

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2005
Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! So easy and so yummy. I will make this for years. Elegant and classy. Great for guests. The one reviewer that thought it was "too fishy"- it was definitely their fish. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone in New Orleans. Please donate and help!

Deep Dish Layered Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2005
This is good. I just layered lettuce, green onions, peas, mushrooms, bacon and used cherry tomatoes from my garden. Also added cheddar cheese. I think it is great, but my husband thought there was too much mayo. I might try it again and halve the amount of dressing. He was right- it was a bit heavy on top. But the dressing is what makes this.

Cottage Cheese Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2005
These are good, but I wasnt totally blown away. My husband liked them and he was raised on Mexican food (not very good Mexican food, but still). I halved the cheese mixture but made the full amount of meat mixture, and I still thought it could have used another chicken breast. Super easy to make and the results are good.

Ramen Coleslaw

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2005
This is fantastic! I made this for company and they loved it. My husband loved it- and he can be fussy. I used a bag of tri-colored cabbage, used olive oil instead of vegetable or sesame oil because it was all I had, and I doubled the amount of the dressing- except I only used one packet of ramen seasoning. It was excellent. I ate the leftovers for breakfast the next day. I will make this for many years to come. Wonderful! Note: This could easily be made with Splenda without altering the results.

Perfect Berry Shortcakes

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2005
This is the best shortcake ever! I followed the shortcake recipe exactly, but improvised on the berries. I omitted the frozen berries and used fresh raspberries, marion berries and strawberries- a pint each with 2T sugar stirred in. The shortcake is so tender and wonderful. I was so proud to serve this to my husband. It would be perfect for guests. Totally a keeper!

Antipasto Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2005
I made this for my step-daughters grad party and total strangers asked me for the recipe. I have to admit I didnt taste any at the party, but the next day I ate some leftovers and it was fantastic. I made a few alterations; rotini instead of sea shell, yellow or red pepper in place of green, 3oz. can of olives, 3 green onions, and instead of the dressing provided in the recipe- I used Newman's Own Light Balsamic Vinegrette. It was a huge hit. The key was to mix everything together but the balsamic dressing and let it sit for a while. In my case, 24 hours before I poured the Newman's Own on it. Really yummy! One reviewer suggested Pepperchini's, which I think would be a great addition. I didnt think this cost much to make, and I dont understand why people think there is so much chopping. That is a part of cooking! This is an excellent recipe and one woman at our party said it was going to be her pasta salad recipe from now on. Excellent! (Edited 5/9/2010)

Bread Pudding

Reviewed: May 3, 2005
This is good. I think something was missing though. I used Safeway bakery old-fashioned dinner rolls and they were good. I think cinnamon and raisins would be good. With the sauce I cut the sugar back to a half cup and it was plenty sweet. I cannot imagine a whole cup of sugar in that sauce. I also had to cook it longer- an hour and 15 or so. It would be better in a larger pan. I used an 8x8 and it was a bit mushy on the bottom, even after letting it set-up for hours. The next day we ate it without the sauce- it was boring.

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole

Asian Coleslaw

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2005
This is excellent! I halved the recipe using a 1 lb. bag of cabbage, and added the cilantro and green onions. So much easier this way. Dont skip the cilantro and green onions- they really add to this. I also cut the oil back in half, like others suggested. I may cut it even more next time. I may have added a tiny bit too much ginger though. Still, this is a wonderful alternative to regular coleslaw. It is fancier and great for parties or barbeques. Yum! (Edited 5/22/2010)

Fabulous Foolproof Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2005
This is great. I ended up using just about 2 jars of sauce. It needs alot of liquid or it is a dry mess. Not cooking the noodles first is a great timesaver. I also used ground beef instead of sausage, but I added a tablespoon of brown sugar to the meat when cooking it to give it a unique flavor. Good stuff.

EZ Peanut Butter Pie I

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2004
This is excellent! I used Carb Smart peanut butter and powdered sugar. I also poured it into a chocolate wafer crust, but think a graham cracker crust might be a bit better. My step-daughter said it was the best dessert she ever ate. I highly recommend this. I could eat it all day!!

Cola Pot Roast II

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2004
This was just okay. I followed the recipe to a tee. It didnt do anything for us at all. I even had dreams about what went wrong all night!! Not kidding! The meat was tough, the gravy was just okay. I think it needs to be browned with salt and pepper before roasting. I dont know what the hell happened, but it wasnt that good. I am sticking to my Mom's pot roast recipe from now. Good old-fashioned onion soup mix kind.

Better than Sex Cake IV

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2004
This is a great recipe! My husband said it was the best cake he has ever eaten. It is super easy, yet I felt like I did more than just make a mix. Remember to keep it stored in the fridge when not devouring it! This is a keeper.
