Fresh Green Chile Quiche

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2010
Oh, this was SO cheesy...just decadent! I made it exactly as the recipe is written, feta cheese and all. I love feta cheese! It didn't taste strange at all with the other cheeses and the green chile peppers. I highly recommend this recipe, and will make it again and again! Thanks so MUCH for the great recipe!

Carrot Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2010
Wonderful salad, both pleasing to the eye as well as the palate! I did substitute Splenda for the sugar, and used crushed pineapple as that is what I had on hand. This is definitely a recipe that I will use again and again. Thank you, Carol!

Savory Rosemary Garlic Farfel Kugel

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2013
Made this for Seder, and absolutely loved it. I think my husband liked it even more than I did, if that is possible. He seldom comments on my cooking, but he did say how much he liked this. I used portobello mushrooms, and tossed in a little sage as well simply because I love the taste of sage. Thank you so much for this great recipe! I'll definitely be making this again next Passover, if not before!

Slow-Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2013
This was my first time trying corned beef and cabbage, and all I can say is WOW! Tasted fantastic! I followed recipe exactly except for cutting carrots into slices instead of matchsticks. The potatoes were not mushy at all...they were just right! Cabbage cooked quickly, so no problems with that. And, as I followed the directions of the recipe, I did cook it on HIGH. The corned beef was SO tender! Love this recipe, and will definitely make it again! Thank you LUSYRSGIRL for a fantastic recipe. Absolutely delicious!!

Classic Tiramisu

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2010
I have made several recipes for tiramisu, but this is the best one BY FAR I have ever made. I like the fact that this one is sweeter than the others, plus I like the fact that you cook the egg...makes it just a little bit safer in my viewpoint. I did not have mascarpone cheese, so used the cream cheese/sour cream/whipping cream substitute used by LGIORGI on that review. Since my ladyfingers were hard, I made around 1 1/2 cups of strong coffee with a little Kahlua, soaking each ladyfinger for just a few seconds. If you use this method, do not soak too long or the ladyfingers will fall apart. Everything came out perfect. I impressed the heck out of my guests! :D Wonderful, wonderful recipe, which I will definitely make again, probably over the holidays. Thank you VERY MUCH for the great recipe!

Sesame Broccoli

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
This was an excellent recipe for broccoli, plus I love sesame seeds! The only thing I did differently was to saute the broccoli in a tablespoon or so of the olive oil for a few minutes as opposed to cooking the broccoli in water. I then added the sesame seeds, tossing with the broccoli, cooking a couple more minutes. I then removed from the heat and added the sugar, lemon juice and soy sauce. This made the recipe even easier, and eliminated a pan for clean-up. Thanks so much for the recipe!

Slow-Cooked, Texas-Style Beef Brisket

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2010
This is an awesome recipe that makes great barbecue sandwiches! I'm not sure why some reviewers meat burnt...I had so much juice with mine that I had to take quite a bit out! I used the juice I removed to make Yorkshire Pudding (Mort Tibble's recipe, this site) cause I love Yorkshire Pudding! The sauce with this recipe was sweet (which I like, by the way), but after adding it to the meat with the juice in the slow-cooker, it toned down the sweetness a lot. Next time I make this, I will probably add a little more brown sugar! I cooked this a full 24 hours, and it was just fantastic! Highly recommended!

Carrot Parsnip Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2010
Oh yum! This was SO good! I used olive oil instead of butter, with a dash of pepper. Made a beautiful looking dish (so colorful), that I will definitely make again. Thank you so much for the recipe!

Passover Chocolate Mandelbrot

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2013

Passover Chocolate Torte

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2010
Yummy! I made this for Passover, and it was a huge hit! I had some almond flour (which is just ground almonds), so it made it SO very easy to make! I topped with Vanilla Glaze (this site), and it was perfect! Thank you VERY much for the great recipe...easy to make, and so delightful to eat!

Richard's Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2010
Yum! This was an excellent recipe, and the sauce was SO good! The breasts were very juicy, and I would consider serving this dish to company. The only things I did differently were to add the onions, mushrooms, and rosemary, along with some garlic and salt, before adding the wine. I didn't measure, but probably used around a cup of wine. I also added some leftover flour mixture to the sauce to thicken it. I will be making this again and again! Thank you very much for this yummy recipe!

Three Cheese Garlic Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
Yum yum! This was SO good! I ran out of provolone, so used a little mozzarella to make up for it. I also used a combination of half and half with heavy cream. Perfect! I covered with foil for the first half of baking as suggested by one reviewer, and the potatoes cooked perfectly! My husband loved this as well, so I will definitely make this again. Thanks so much for the wonderful recipe!

Aunt Blanche's Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
I have been searching for years for a nice, sweet blueberry muffin recipe, and now I found it! I used frozen blueberries as that is what I had on hand, and also added 1 teaspoon of vanilla to batter. Otherwise, followed exactly. Next time I want blueberry muffins, I will look no further than this recipe. Definitely a keeper, and I am so glad I found it! Thanks, Bevy!

Scottish Shortbread IV

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
f I could give this recipe 10 stars I would! By far the best shortbread recipe I have ever used. I've only ever used confectioner's sugar in the dough, but will never go back from the brown sugar! I did add 1 teaspoon vanilla to mine as I love the vanilla flavor. I used 4 cups flour (I read somewhere that the ratio of flour to butter should be 2 to 1 in shortbread). I kneaded for around 30 seconds in the bowl, and then pressed the dough into a jelly roll pan. After pricking all over with a fork, baked as directed. I also sifted confectioner's sugar all over the top of the warm cookies before cutting. Made them look beautiful, and gave just a little added sweetness. I LOVE shortbread, and will make this recipe over and over. Thank you SO very much!

World's Best Scones! From Scotland to the Savoy to the U.S.

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
Wow! These are unbelievably good. I followed the recipe exactly, except I added blueberries instead of currants or raisins. Delish! Much, much better than any scone I have ever made or purchased. Will definitely make these again (and again and again!)!

Very Old Meatloaf Recipe

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2014
I was surprised at how good this was. I especially loved the carrots and apple in the meatloaf. Next time I will chop the carrots a bit finer. So good! The reason I was surprised was because I always think of ketchup in or at least on a meatloaf, but wanted something without sugar. This definitely hit the spot! I did add a few shakes of salt and pepper to it, but am sure would be just fine without. Thanks so much for the recipe!

Bread Machine Challah II

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2013
Can't believe I never reviewed this recipe...have been using for a couple of years. It is fantastic! I make just as written except usually use 4 1/2 cups of flour. I also sprinkle with sesame seeds or poppy seeds after the egg wash. This is an unbelievably great recipe, which my husband loves! Thank you SO much for this wonderful recipe...now if I could only braid the bread better!

Pancakes I

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
These were wonderful, and were similar to a recipe I had and lost years ago. Per personal preference, I used melted butter instead of vegetable oil, and added 1 teaspoon of vanilla. I also let the batter rest in the refrigerator for around 30 minutes before cooking. Perfection! Will use this recipe again and again....thanks!

Roasted New Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2010
So easy and oh so good! Ten minutes before they were done, I tossed some chopped onion and minced garlic in with the potatoes. I also added some rosemary with the salt and pepper just because I love rosemary on potatoes! Excellent, simple, and quick to make; thanks for the great recipe!

Carrots 'n' Celery with Pecans

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2010
Yum! I thought this was very good! I did add a little bit more dill weed, plus a dash of pepper. The dish looked great, and went excellently with the chicken I prepared, plus was very easy. Thanks for a great recipe!
