William Shatner's Cappuccino Muffins

"This dish is stupendous! I used bone-in chicken thighs with the skin on. They browned nicely, and the aromatics were delicious."

-Andi of Longmeadow Farm

John Wayne's Green Chili Squares

"This is so easy to throw together, you really can't go wrong. I didn't have green chilis, so instead I diced up some roasted red peppers that I spiced with cayenne pepper and paprika. Absolutely divine!"

-Andi of Longmeadow Farm

Maya Angelou's Smoked Pork Chops

"The flavor and seasonings were just PERFECT! The hint of cinnamon and nutmeg in the fruit topping was to-die-for. What more can I say, it was great."

-Charlotte J

The Wahlberg's Macaroni Salad

"Great basic macaroni salad! I loved the little bit of heat from the cayenne and the crunchiness from the pepper and celery. This is my new go-to recipe."


Trisha Yearwood's Blackberry Cobbler

"This was a really lovely, quick and easy treat. The cobbler was perfect served with French vanilla ice cream. What a terrific flavor. It tasted like spring!"

-Baby Kato

Frank Sinatra's Sausage & Peppers

"This is wonderful! It's simply awesome. I like the fact that it only requires a few ingredients. I doubled it and made it with both hot and sweet Italian sausage."


Martha Stewart's Oatmeal Cookies

"Perfectly delicious! Next time, I will freeze two of the logs, defrost in the refrigerator, and bake later. I also used Heath bar bits."


The Elvis

"I've never had anything like this before, though I've heard of peanut butter and banana sandwiches. It was really quite tasty. Next time, I'll break the bacon up into bits to make it easier to eat."


Dolly Parton's 5-Layer Dinner

"This is sweet simplicity at it's best. There are no overpowering flavors in this, just good comfort food. One of my favorite types of recipes! The only change I made , was using a red pepper instead of green , personal preference of the household. Baked in the time stated and came out perfect. The photo I took is next day , cold out of the fridge. There is NO WAY I could get a good 'hot' shot! LOL Great simple recipe , thanks so much for sharing! Made for fall PAC '08"


Paul Newman's Spicy Chicken & Pasta

"I'm giving this five stars for being fantastically easy on a night when I didn't have much time to make dinner. It had a nice bite from the chilies, and I added in some fresh basil from our garden."


Patti Labelle's Macaroni & Cheese

"What a great combination of cheeses! Very rich and full of flavor — especially with the seasoned salt. I topped mine with seasoned bread crumbs for a crunchy crust."


Linda McCartney's Avocado Hummus

"Absolutely fabulous! Added a little more lemon to brighten up the flavors, along with a pinch of cumin, and a handful of fresh spinach to pump up the green color (and nutrients). The flavor was awesome!"


Oprah Winfrey's Deviled Eggs

"I took these to a potluck and they were devoured! These are a nice change from the ordinary deviled eggs. I enjoyed the savory flavor the horseradish, Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco gave them."


Betty White's Chicken Wings

"These are awesome wings! Sweet and slightly salty — a nice change of pace from the hot Buffalo wings everyone usually serves. And you don't need a dipping sauce to cool your mouth down!"


Jimmy Buffett's Key Lime Pie

"This was so easy to make, and the taste is out of this world — not too tart, but not too sweet. Quick hint: If you don't have a juicer, cut the limes in half and use your garlic press. Works like a charm!"


Jackie Kennedy's Spiced Chicken

"This deserves five stars for great flavor and simplicity. The spices are subtle, and the cardamom is a nice touch. I'm looking forward to grilling these in the summer!"


Barbra Streisand's Blackout Cake

"The cake was dense and moist, and the ganache was so beautiful. This recipe is perfect for when you want something both luscious and ultra-professional looking."


Bill Clinton's Chicken Enchiladas

"This is so easy to put together! The filling is thick and spreadable, instead of thin and saucy. So simple and delicious — and definitely a kid-friendly meal."


Audrey Hepburn's Favorite Spaghetti Al Pomodoro

"This is a wonderful recipe! I used organic fire-roasted crushed tomatoes, which produced a thick, flavorful sauce. I also chopped the onion and celery rather fine and grated the carrots to better incorporate the flavors."

-Whole Foods Chef Judy

Sarah McLachlan's Asparagus Frittata

"The ingredients in this dish complement each other nicely. Next time I make this, I'm going to try baking it in a casserole dish and topping it with basil for decoration."


Al Roker's Spicy Chicken Wings

"I added less chili powder and hot sauce so they wouldn't be too spicy for the kids, and they were still yummy. I loved the sweetness of the honey with the tanginess of the hot sauce. Already planning to make these again!"


Sheryl Crow's Sherry Vinegar Gastrique

"This gastrique was thick, bold and flavorful. I loved the herbs in this recipe. We enjoyed it drizzled over a simple pork loin and oven roasted cabbage. It was delicious!"

-Baby Kato

Abraham Lincoln's Favorite Cake

"This is a moist and tender cake, with a bit of added crunch from the almonds on top. I used an almond-cream cheese frosting, and it was a great cake."
