Chess Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2007
FABULOUS! Make sure you have a deep dish crust...mine made too much filling for my crust, so I added a handful of coconut to it and made a second pie...both were fabulous. This is for people with a real love of sugary sweet.

Cajun Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
I have made this several times, and I am a native New Orleanian. My husband used to work in a prominent NO restaurant, and their recipe was very similar tasting, but much more difficult. My suggestion for the sauce would be that if you are planning to add the condensed milk, DO NOT add the corn syrup. I love sweets, and that even makes me gag. Also, I did add a raisin/craisin mix to the bread that was simmered in about 1-2 tsp bourbon before I added it to the recipe, and I doubled the cinnamon. It was just a good holiday thing! You could add a little orange zest, too! Anyway...c'est la vie e laissez le bon temps rouler!

Delicious Matzo Candy

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
This is so addictive. I made two batches, one with chocolate top and no nuts, the other with nuts and no chocolate. I have also made it with graham crackers and another recipe I saw used saltine crackers. I did use the mini chips, which eliminated the necessity of putting it back in the oven. By the time I sprinkled the chips all over the top, they melted and spread without trouble. Make sure you put foil or parchment on your cookie sheet!

Yuca French Fries

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
Yummy! I had these in a New Orleans restaurant (RioMar) with a hanger steak and chimichuri sauce; it was fabulous. I want it all the time now. And yes, add salt and garlic to the fries after frying - you won't regret it!

Cafeteria Carrot Souffle

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2013
We used a #10 can of sweet potatoes, drained, and doubled the rest of the ingredients to make two pans of sweet potato soufflé for my husband's employees who work the holiday {they can't close ;( so we feed them a big meal!} This worked perfectly.

Southern Banana Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
This is good, but to make a really southern treat, use Nutter Butter Cookies instead of vanilla wafers. This makes a Peanut Butter Banana Pudding! My friend's son eats a PB&B sandwich every day and he loves this version!!

Chocolate Spoons

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
Used this for Valentine's teacher gifts! We bought pink spoons from the party store & put them in heart print cello bags. Was a big hit.

Simple Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2009
This was the easiest quickest way to get my kids to eat beans (husband, too). I didn't have regular corn, so I used cream corn, and it worked just fine. I also did not add the chilis this time since I didn't know how spicy it would be. It had enough taste, but was not very spicy at all. We did have cheddar cheese, sour cream, and little soup crackers for everyone to add, and they did. Lastly, we used deer meat instead of beef...no need to drain the fat! (This is my favorite deer recipe now). Addendum: This time I used last night's leftover hamburger patties, broken up. I also used regular ranch dressing instead of the powder, about 2-3 tbsp. Couldn't tell the difference! I love recipes that work with what I've got in the house!!

Aunt Anne's Sesame Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
good, but not enough cookies for a large, Italian family's get-together. you've just got to have enough for everyone to take some home. otherwise, dough is silky, easy to handle, and very tasty.

Artichoke & Spinach Dip Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
By far better than the old recipe I used to use. I skipped the garlic altogether because the Alfredo Sauce (roasted garlic flavor) has it already - which made this even quicker to make. Also, I used a 16 oz bag frozen spinach, a low fat cream cheese, and a little more Parm. We served it for Thanksgiving, and everyone was eating it as a side dish! Great recipe.

Quick Quiche

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
great & easy to follow - even works well with a store-bought crust (pre-bake partially before filling).

Sicilian Fig Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
I took an Italian cookie making class years ago, and the lady teaching it taught us to make the filling days ahead of the cookies. Then, place the filling (half full) into zip top baggies, flatten, and freeze/refrigerate. When you are ready to make the cookies, slice open the sides of the baggie, and cut strips of filling with a long straight knife. It is then extremely easy to place the strips of filling on the rolled out dough that can be cut with a pizza cutter.

New Orleans Barbeque Shrimp

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2014
We added extra beer and Worcestershire sauce for a little extra juice and served it over grits with chopped green onions over the top. No need to add butter to the grits because the sauce is perfect. French bread if you have it, but BBQ Shrimp and Grits is a great New Orleans tradition.
