Coconut Rum Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2006
Even after 24 hrs this "dough" was still wet, sticky, and inedible. After crushing and adding an ADDITIONAL box of wafers, they were fine. Seriously: how did these work out for so many other cooks? Other coconut rum ball recipes include an entire box of confectioners sugar. That would have fixed the consistency, but really: they were YUMMY and less sweet w/double the wafers instead. My suggestion: make them with extra wafers and sugar on hand, and far enough ahead of schedule to tinker with this recipe. With all good ingredients and no baking, these will end up fine if you can achieve the proper consistency. But this recipe, as written, did not work for me.

Spinach Dip with Water Chestnuts

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2006
I've used this recipe for years, and it's always a hit. I use yogurt instead of sour cream, and just add maybe 1/2 cup of mayo to cut the sour bite of the yogurt. When I have made this dip with sour cream, I've found the mayo completely unnecessary. But I'd never omit the water chestnuts - they make this dip addictive.

Barley and Mushrooms with Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2006
DELICIOUS! I had beech mushrooms fresh from the farmer’s market and was looking for a healthy dish for them. Most of the mushroom recipes on here include meat or are filled with cream soup/cheeses. I added a diced sweet potato, sauteeing it a bit first, and then followed the recipe as written. I did use quick cooking barley and cut the broth to 1 cup to accommodate. And I salted and peppered and added some cayenne for a bit of heat. Don’t overcook the veggy base, though: it can become too mushy if you do. Thanks for a great healthy dinner!

Penne with Red Pepper Sauce and Broccoli

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2003
Tasty and satisfying dish - and without a cream sauce! The almonds add a great touch. Definitely do NOT mix in an entire lb of pasta - about 12 ounces means you'll have enough sauce. I used frozen onion and peppers (tri-color rather than just red), along with frozen broccoli and I added cauliflower. This might be better with fresh veggies, but it was delicious with frozen! I'll definitely make this one again. Thanks!

Cranberry Upside-Down Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2001
Guests raved; but DON'T SKIP the step where you wrap foil around the pan! We did and at midnight the night before a party we were up cleaning a layer of burned sugar out of our oven!!! Can't imagine how good this will taste with ALL of that sugar on top, because even with only half it was scrumptious. And beautiful!
