Easter Bread Ring

This is a very good recipe. I did make some changes, however. First of all, I used half of the salt and still had excellent results. Also, I substituted sultanas (golden raisins) for the fruit called for in the recipe. I also omitted the nuts. The resulting loaf was beautiful to look at and makes an excellent Easter morning certerpiece. I do question the safety of letting the braided loaf rise for the second hour because of the raw eggs. Only let mine rise 30 minutes after the inserting the colored raw eggs. Everything turned out great. The bread is very lightly sweet and goes very well with coffee.

Mocha Cream Bread

When prepared as directed in the original recipe, I found the bread came out a little too doughy and the procedure was a bit lengthy. However, the taste of the bread was quite good. You may prefer to use the Sweet Bread setting on your machine rather than using just the dough cycle. Then simply add the chocolate chips at the beep, if your machine has this feature (or after the first kneading). Worth trying again.

Nanny's Spaghetti Sauce

Very quick & easy. Both my daughter and husband enjoyed this sauce - which is rare because they usually complain that nothing quite compares to my husband's Nana's sauce, in their opinion. It doesn't taste like her sauce, but they thought it was a good sauce anyway. I didn't like this recipe as much, though.

This recipe is excellent. The bread comes out a beautiful bright green color and looks very pretty when sliced. Perfect for holidays such as St Patty's Day or Christmas. My daughter loved making this bread with me - it was very kid friendly. The texture is moist and the taste is lightly sweet. Terrific recipe.

This is a very good recipe. I will make this one again for sure. Simple to make.

Tortillas I

While the taste was good, my tortillas came out a little stiff. Also, it was very difficult to roll out the tortillas flat enough. I think a tortilla press would be a great help. A good recipe, but not as easy as I had hoped.

This is a great recipe! A blender produced the mos satisfying texture. Very easy and tasty. If you have been looking for a great tasting salsa that does not require fresh tomatoes, this is the one. One batch is enough for a small party.

Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta
Rating: Unrated
HEATHERFEATHER's rating

I thought this recipe was delicious. My whole family enjoyed it too - including my young daughter. It is not spicy - the Cajun seasoning is more seasoning & salt than fire. I would even recommend omitting the 1/4 salt called for in the recipe if you don't care for salt. I also tried substituting half-n-half for the cream and it turned out very good. Next time, I will try using half of the Cajun seasoning on the chicken and then adding the remaining Cajun seasoning when the other spices are added to give the sauce a bit more zip. A good company dish.

Irish Potatoes

These are wonderfully easy to to make and taste great! My 5 year old made these all by herself with great ease... it was so much fun to shake the candy in the bag. And these fix up in just minutes. The taste is very sweet - but very good all the same. This recipe is ideal for kids. On note: the recipe says it makes 24 potatoes - yes, if you want teeny sized ones. You can easily make larger potatoes if you like - I would say 12 larger size poatoes would be more like it.

Seafood au Gratin
Rating: Unrated
HEATHERFEATHER's rating

I really wanted this recipe to be good - it sure cost enough for the ingredients. There was not enough sauce for the immense amount of seafood called for in this recipe - which was way too much in my opinion. The sauce also didn't have enough flavor to enhance the seafood. I would not make this again.

Baked Ziti

This is a really great recipe. It is very easy to prepare, with ingredients you are likely to have lying around anyway. You need a deep pan or at least a 9x13" casserole in order to fit everything into the pan. If you spoon everything in carefully, it does all fit, even with the two jars of sauce. I followed the recipe almost exactly - I did add a shake of garlic powder to the meat, however. I used high quality spaghetti sauce and it was just wonderful. 10 Stars!
