Strawberry Refrigerator Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2004
If you have trouble getting the strawberry puree to sink into the cake, make sure you make large and deep holes (try a wooden spoon's handle) about 1" apart. **To make this cake travel-safe, try cutting the cake into 1" cubes then layering it in a sealable bowl. Half of the cubed cake, half of the pureed strawberries, half of the pudding mix and repeat. Garnish with a few fresh strawberries and refrigerate! This is my family's favorite way to eat it!!!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2004
Very fast, easy, and delicious recipe, especially handy for low-carb dieters. I thought the lightly sweet taste of the tilapia was still noticable and complemented by the sauce. I loved it.

Braised Celery

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2004
I am always looking for different side dishes to add variety to my meals, and this is one of the best I've found. My husband and I are doing the low-carb thing, but I have decided that even if we weren't, I would still make this dish. It is simply delicious.

Corn Pudding V

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2004
Great! I made this tonight with ham. I used low-fat sour cream and made my own cream-style corn based on Brookville Hotel Cream-style Corn from this site (one can corn, 1/2 cup half & half, 2 tsp. sugar, 1/2 tsp. salt, 2 tsp. cornstarch--combine and bring to boil, stir & simmer till thickened, then use immersion blender to break up the kernels). The pudding turned out great. I don't know what the consistency is supposed to be, but mine is soft and very moist after 45 min. at 350.

Cowboy Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2004
Mashed potatoes are my favorite food, so I was a little nervous about changing the traditional recipe, especially by adding carrots & jalepenos. But I have to say that this was pretty good. It made my husband eat cooked carrots, while still fulfilling the potato part of "meat & potatoes." And these are even better when reheated the next day. It gives the flavors a chance to blend. I could never eat leftover regular mashed potatoes.

Creole Seasoning Blend

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2004
I make rotisserie turkey and use this as a dry rub and as a liquid inject sometimes. It is my husband's favorite. It turns an okay meal into something I crave.

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2004
Excellent summer salad! I added mandarin oranges because they're my favorite and I thought it would complement the flavors. It was very good and had a nice presentation as well.

Hearty Turkey Soup with Parsley Dumplings

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2004
This soup does not taste like it was made from leftovers. It is reminiscent of chicken & dumplings that my mother makes. I did make a few changes: 2 chicken bouillon cubes, 1 tsp. dried basil instead of bay leaf (didn't have one), no rutabaga (didn't have any), and I made my dumplings from Bisquick mix (2 cups Bisquick & dried parsley mixed with enough milk to form a moist dough). Also, I had already thrown my turkey carcass away so I used my 1 1/2 pounds of cooked turkey in the original stock and then picked it out and reserved it for the end. Even with my changes, it still turned out delicious and full of flavor.

Simple Beef Flavored Gravy

Reviewed: May 25, 2004
This is an excellent, simple beef gravy recipe. Follow the advice of other's and add ingredients as they have instructed (butter & onion, then flour, etc.) and it should turn out smooth. It really has excellent flavor. Thank you.

Pig Pickin' Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2004
I really enjoyed this cake as did my in-laws and husband. The topping was absolutely delicious. I think next time I will add more pineapple and mandarin oranges. My only mistake was making the cake in two layers instead of three. It turned out a little more dry than it should have I think.

Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2004
I love this macaroni salad. For years I have said my grandmother's is the best, but this one is definitely better. I halved this recipe and it was still enough to serve six though, so I agree with others who have said the servings are off. The only changes I made were leaving out the olives and substituting sweet pickle relish for the sweet pickles and juice and using celery salt rather than celery seed (all I had on hand). It turned out great. I will use this forever as my macaroni salad recipe!!! Thank you.

Chocolate Lovers' Favorite Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2004
I love this cake. I mean, I LOVE IT! I usually don't care for cakes because they are too dry and dull in flavor, but this one stands apart being moist and full of chocolate and almond flavors. It reminds me of a Godiva truffle. I have been reading over some of the poor reviews and have some words of caution. If you don't like wet cake, don't make this. If you don't like chocolate, don't make this. If you don't like rich desserts, don't make this. If you don't like almond extract, don't use it. This seems self-explanatory, but I noticed several reviews that said, "I don't like chocolate, but I thought I'd give this a try, and I didn't like it," and then they gave it 1 or 2 stars. Well, surprise, surprise. It's a chocolate cake! Anyway, bon appetit.

Brownie Pie a'la Mode

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2004
I forgot to get all the ingredients for my husband's favorite cake for his birthday, so I had to change my plans in a hurry. I found this recipe and thought it sounded like something he would enjoy, and I already had all the ingredients, so...HE LOVED IT!!! I used vanilla frozen yogurt instead of ice cream, and it was still delicious this way. I'm going to be using the simple recipe for the yummy fudge sauce for other desserts in the future.

Fettuccini with Mushroom, Ham and Rose Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2003
Oh my goodness! I was so surprised by the flavor in this meal. When I saw the recipe I thought it would be decent, but it was better than any rose sauce I have ever had in a restaurant. I served this with toasted Italian bread with a garlic and herb olive oil spread. Yummy, yummy, yummy!

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2003
Not only is this teriyaki chicken the best I've ever had, it is fairly simple to make and the ingredients are all things I generally have in my pantry. The chicken turns out so flavorful and so juicy that you can eat it all by itself. I used boneless chicken breasts instead of thighs and baked them for 30 minutes instead of an hour with the sauce poured all over them. I turned and basted them every ten minutes. They could not have turned out better.

Cajun Chicken Pasta

I love the chicken in this recipe. It has the perfect amount of seasonings. The best part is that it is fairly simple to make and perfect portions for two people.

Pineapple Mojo Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2003
Scrumptous!!! I fixed this as a sheet cake for lack of round cake pans of the correct dimensions. It was extremely moist & delicious. My husband & I finished the entire cake in less than a week!
