Chocolate Macaroons I

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
instead of melting the chocolate, i prefer using mini chocolate chips and mixing them in like the coconut and nuts.

Coconut Bonbons

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
very good both with the pecans and without (if you leave them out, increase the coconut until the consistency seems right.) i like them coated with dark chocolate instead of semi sweet- dark chocolate and coconut is great combination! it makes SOOO many candies, though. i usually only get through about 2/3 of the filling before i'm sick of rolling balls.

Baked Halibut Steaks

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
this recipe is wonderful, but i didn't think the feta went so well with the fish, so i plan on leaving it off next time. it might be a product of how i was raised - my grandmother always told me cheese doesn't belong with fish!

Cantonese Style Pork and Shrimp Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
absolutely wonderful dumplings. they receive rave reviews every time i make them. i use a food processor to eliminate having to chop everything by hand, and i cook them in a bamboo steamer because it's easier than boiling, healthier than frying, and i just happened to have one.

Broccoli Beef I

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2011
also great with chicken! you can microwave frozen broccoli and use that instead of fresh to make it a bit quicker, but you need to thicken the sauce some before you add the broccoli - it will get mushy if you cook it the 10 minutes in the sauce.

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2011
this soup is very filling and rich, even using fat free half and half! I made that substitution to cut out a lot of the fat and calories, and the soup still tasted great. My boyfriend, who loves baked potato soup, couldn't even tell I'd used fat free. I also made a bit extra bacon - since you add it as a garnish, it doesn't hurt to have extra, and the crowd I cook for really loves bacon.

Hungarian Flourless Hazelnut Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
this cake was delicious! my boyfriend made it for me for my birthday and it was spectacular. we used a whipped dark chocolate ganache (flavored with frangelico and hazelnut extract) as a frosting instead of the whipped cream. this made it a VERY rich dessert, but it was delicious! the torte is equally amazing by itself, though, and didn't need the chocolate at all. but, hazelnut and chocolate go so well together, so we figured why not try it? the only thing i would suggest is possibly greasing the pan before pouring in the cake batter - it didn't really *need* it, but it did stick a bit when taking it out of the pan. otherwise, this recipe is perfect as is!

Best Cream Of Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
great soup! i lightened it up by using 1 and 1/2 c skim milk and 1/2 c fat free half and half. i also didn't have a food processor, blender, or stick blender when i first made this, so i used an old-school potato masher and it still came out great, albeit a bit chunky (which i didn't mind at all.) i was looking for a good broccoli soup recipe because i love a premade one from the supermarket but found it a bit expensive.

German Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2010
wonderful! like many reviewers suggested, i made 1.5x the amount of frosting. i also added 2 tbsp of cornstarch mixed with 1/4 c of water and then brought it to a boil to thicken it up and refrigerated it a while before putting it on the cake.

Ham with Honey and Brown Sugar Glaze

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2010
delicious! i basted the ham with this every 10 minutes of the cooking time like you would with a turkey and it came out moist and delicious. one of the people at my party that dislikes ham decided to try it because it looked so good, and ended up loving it!

Amazingly Good Eggnog

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2010
very good ,if you like eggnog (I don't, but everyone at my party did.) i used fat free half and half instead of the cream to lighten it up and lessen the calorie count a bit, and the taste was still great. spiced rum goes very well in it.
