Juicy Thanksgiving Turkey

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2013
Fabulous recipe, but TIPS! I made this last night, just as directed though I substituted sparkling cider for the champagne (trying to save a stop at the liquor store and it sounded good, shame on me). I do NOT recommend this. I will in the future go for a white wine or dry champagne, as I was not a fan of the sweetness from using the cider. Also, the orange in the cavity sounded so fancy and like it would have this nice light aroma of oranges. Nope, tastes like sweet orange turkey. However, I can see where this recipe is going, and I am giving it 5 stars because never in my life have I had turkey this moist. With the exception of my personal taste preferences, this is a fantastic recipe! I'll still eat the turkey, just have to find the right recipes for the meat :) As far as cooking the turkey, I used a roaster on 350 for about 2.5 hours (the turkey was in a bag), and this was for a 12# bird.

Banana Pancakes I

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2013
I made this recipe last night, it was fantastic! The only tiny things I changed were that I used brown sugar instead of white and a little bit of vanilla (just love those flavors). Otherwise the recipe was spot on, and I'm sure it would be good either way. Make sure you set the griddle to a lower-than-usual setting and give them time to "bake" to avoid getting the gloppy texture on the inside. If you have a little patience, they will turn out to be fantastic! I used somewhat small organic bananas that were over-ripe, and it was just right. I also let the mix sit for about 30 minutes while I did the dishes to try to get it to rise up as much as it could before starting. I served mine with boysenberry syrup and whipped topping, and woooow.

"Pantry Raid" Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2012
Amazingly delicious!!! I added a couple of things for a little more veggie content (rotel, frozen corn, can of green chilies) used cream of mushroom instead of tomato juice because that's what I had, and salt free taco seasoning. Adjusted for our taste, but no major structural changes. I love how flexible this recipe is - you could make it spicy, make it mild, whatever you want and it will turn out! This one is a keeper.

Savory Tater Tot Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
This recipe was okay, I browned the meat with the onion beforehand, but in general I thought it was kind of flavorless and boring. It didn't quite live up to expectations, but I may mess around with the recipe a bit to see if I can make it work.

Mocha Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2007
This cake was fabulous! I made it for my boyfriend's golden birthday and the entire cake was gone within 15 minutes. My only real regret is that I should have made 2(: Even his uncle who was on a strict diet couldn't resist 2 pieces! I used 1.5 cups sugar and the non-alcoholic version. Any more sugar would have been unnecessary really. Also, next time I plan on using part espresso rather than just the strong coffee, because there wasn't much of an aroma or coffee essence to the cake. It was still wonderful, but I would love a stronger coffee presence. I didn't put all the glaze on the top, because it seemed to be drowning the cake. It was still a billion degrees from the oven, and I had to get to the party, so it just totally sucked up all the glaze. I would actually put it all on next time, because that honestly made the cake. You will be very proud to serve this cake no matter if you make it as directed or alter it to your taste.
