Onion Orange Salad
Rating: Unrated
julie's rating

I made this salad for friends from work. I made individuals salads instead of one large salad. The salads were beautiful and the combination of flavors was wonderful. When I tasted the dressing by itself, I wasn't impressed, but when added to the salad it was very good! I would definitly make this again. I used Dole "Spring Mix" --it gave it a nice combination of color and texture. I also used canned oranges. The salad was very easy to make.

This salad was delicious! I will definitely make it again. I modified it a little by adding 1 cup of mayo instead of ½ cup of mayo and ½ cup of Miracle Whip (I’m not a fan of Miracle Whip), I excluded the red grapes and put only one cup of dried cranberries in it. I used a rotisserie chicken for ease. I love recipes like this – very flavorful and looks great too!

This frosting was so easy and tasted great! I especially liked it because I always have these ingredients on hand. I make brownies from a box frequently and like to put frosting on them. This will be the one I'll use from now on. It was perfect for a 9 X 13 pan of brownies.

Candied Garlic Chicken Wings

I didn't find these wings as good as the other reviewers. I was hoping for something more flavorful and "stickier" since that was how the recipe was described. They were too putzy too: first you have to marinade for a period of time, then bake with foil, then turn, then without foil, then on a rack, turning again. They weren't worth all the effort.

I'm always on the look out for a new and better lasagne recipe and now I think my search is done! Thank you! The sauce is great as a spaghetti sauce too.

I've made this twice and we loved it! I couldn't find chili paste, so substituted the same amount of Thai style chili sauce. I couldn’t find soba noodles, so substituted the same amount of lo mein noodles. I used “less sodium” soy sauce and cut the amount in half (1/4 cup). I prefer it without the chicken so will make it that way from now on. Thank you for introducing me to new flavors!

Bacon Wrapped Dates Stuffed with Blue Cheese
Rating: Unrated

After the rave reviews on how good these were I had to try them. However I was disappointed. I stuffed half of the dates with blue cheese and half with almonds. We really couldn't taste the blue cheese. Couldn't really taste the date. I didn't find the need to secure them with a toothpick. Bacon at room temp wraps nicely around the date. I placed the appetizers on a cooling rack inside of a jelly roll pan for even baking. The oven got smoky so I covered them loosely with aluminum foil. Everyone liked them, but I wouldn't make them again.
