Artichoke and Roasted Red Pepper Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2002
Easy and delicious! Better carry this recipe in your pocket because everyone will ask for it. Sure to be a hit.

French Herb Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2002
The filling in this recipe was too strong. Half a cup of minced onion is way too much. The bread itself tasted okay, but turned out very, VERY dense - not what I expected.

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2002
This recipe is delicious and very rich! I use onion powder instead of dried onion flakes in the sauce so I can get the flavor without the little bits of onion.

Corn Souffle

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2002
A good recipe for kids, but too plain for the adults in my family.

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2002
This was my very first attempt at making fresh bread, and it turned out so beautiful and delicious. I was worried that fresh bread would go bad before my family could eat it all, but the two loaves didn't last a whole week!

ABC (Absolute Best Chewy) Chocolate Chippers

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2002
Okay, yes, these are time-consuming, but perfect for when you really want to impress. Take them to a bake sale or potluck dessert table, and they will be standouts.

Chocolate Trifle

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2002
Yum! I went the extra mile when making this lovely dessert for dinner guests and whipped my own cream rather than using whipped topping. Hope you're not counting calories!

Taco Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2002
I got a "Wow!" out of my husband when I made this casserole. Makes for very good leftovers.

Banana Anna

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2002
This had too much nutmeg for me - It added so much bitterness that I couldn't seem to get the mixture sweet enough, despite having very ripe bananas, putting in extra honey, and adding some confectioner's sugar as previous reviews suggested.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2002
These are plain, but addictive! I put the cinnamon-sugar mixture in a freezer bag and toss several balls of dough at a time to coat because I'm too lazy to roll them individually. It's better to underbake than to overbake - you don't want to miss out on the soft chewy inside.

Hot Buttered Rum Batter

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2002
I tried this recipe for a get-together after a day of skiing, and those 100 servings were barely enough for 20 people! This recipe makes the sweetest, warmest, creamiest drink... and with the smoothest, most beautiful cappuccino color - absolutely perfect to warm you up after a day in the snow. Toss in a cinnamon stick and top with a dollop of whipped cream and dash of cinnamon if you really want to look like a goddess.

Sauteed Apples

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2002
These turned out beautifully and exactly as I expected - the cinnamon syrup-coated apples that I know and love from some of my favorite restaurants. But I found the cooking time to be way too short, perhaps because I used Granny Smith apples - I ended up having to cook them in the syrup for at least 10 minutes, and still they weren't quite softened all the way though. I will try this recipe again with a slightly sweeter and more tender variety.

Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2002
I've tried a lot of sweet potato casseroles, and this is by far the best. No lumps, no strings, no greasiness - just a yummy sweet topping and smooth, creamy potatoes underneath. I found that the 35 minute baking time didn't quite do the trick, so I cut the potatoes into chunks and microwaved for 10 minutes (50% power) until softened. This will be my sweet potato recipe from now on.

Cheesy Green Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2002
I couldn't get into this recipe. The bacon taste seemed to dominate the entire dish, although that could be attributed to the type of bacon I used. But the cheese sauce was most disappointing - I expected the mixture to be coated in the creamy sauce, but instead all the cheese settled at the bottom of the serving dish. I happened to mention that the recipe was called "Cheesy Green Beans" and my husband said, "They had cheese in them?" Won't be trying this again.

Butterhorn Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2002
I was attracted to this recipe because the description said "no kneading required" - and I was very pleased with the light, buttery rolls that this low maintenance recipe produced. This is perfect for people who want homemade yeast bread without the sweat. I ended up letting mine rise for almost 6 hours and I think they were even better and lighter because of it.

Apple Pecan Cornbread Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2002
I was very proud of myself when my husband (the stuffing connoisseur) gave this recipe his highest praises. It's moist and savory, and every other bite or so you'll get a wonderful sweet apple surprise. Very interesting in taste and texture - this one will show up on my table for many Thanksgivings to come.

Savory Turkey Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2002
This gravy was really delicious and received many compliments, but it was only after much effort on my part to thicken it up. In addition to the recipe's flour mixture, I had to add two cornstarch slurries, and boiled for almost a half hour! I'm going to keep this one, but will have to work on getting it to my desired consistency.

Margaret's Southern Chocolate Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2002
This recipe tasted fine, but my meringue was a total disaster! Everything that could possibly have gone wrong did - it shrank horribly, it was so wet underneath that it slid all over the chocolate filling, and it beaded up on top more than I've ever seen. I'll attribute part of this to lack of experience with meringues on my part, but I've also got to place a little blame on the vagueness of this recipe. When I later read the allrecipes.com article on making the perfect meringue, I learned about all sorts of meringue do-nots - and that I had done them all! Unless you're already a meringue-baking expert, you should probably save this recipe until you are.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2002
This ziti is creamy and cheesy - just the way we like it! I make this at least once a week since the first time a tried it about a year ago. Easier than lasagna and tastes even better.

French Green Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2002
The addition of the toasted almonds is key to making this an interesting and tasty green bean dish. I will add a little less rosemary next time - the taste of the dried version can be a little strong for the mild flavor of the beans.
