Old Italian Meat Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2011
this sauce is exceptional!!! I used half ground beef and half bulk italian sausage. For the wine I used Cab Sav from Barefoot. For the people who found the sauce a little "winey", the key is to let the wine reduce when adding it to the sauted vegetables. I also used 1 large can of tomato sauce, 1 large can of tomato puree and 1 large can of crushed tomatoes, just to get some different textures. I also used fresh thyme, rosemary and oregano, which I put in with the wine. Towards the end of the simmering, I added some cumin, crushed red pepper flakes and a pinch of cinnamon. It makes a ton of sauce, but freezes well :)

Oven-Baked Caramel French Toast

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
Excellent recipe!! Very delish! I used a thick cut country style bread that I bought at Panera. Also, I didn't make the extra caramel sauce and I didn't think I needed it at all. Other posters were correct in that if you served it "upside down" it looked perfect. Next time I will try to make a filling for it using cream cheese and cherry jam.

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
I made this receipe for Christmas Eve appetizer party and it was a HUGE hit! Everyone wanted the receipe. I changed just a few little things...I used the fire roasted green chilies, used 2-3 fresh jalapenos instead of the canned, added some chopped garlic and a little bit of chipotle Chulola sauce (its like Tabasco). I topped it with a mix of Panko breading and shredded Parmesan cheese to mimic the breading on a popper, and baked for 30 min. I served it with tortilla chips. I thought my family was going to lick the dish clean!! My boyfriend enjoyed it so much he asked me to make it again for New Years. **As a side note, I did add some bacon, just 2 strips chopped, but it really didn't add anything to the dip. When my cousin asked what was in the dip he was suprised that there was bacon in it.

Maryann's Upside Down Rhubarb Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2011
This is just like the cake my aunt would make in the summer when we had family functions! Thank you!!! I knew what the ingredients were, but didn't remember the quantities. I used a Lemon cake mix with some frozen rhubarb and it was delicious!! Next time I will try this with blackberries instead of the rhubarb :)

Peach Cobbler Dump Cake I

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2013
Just made this tonight and it is fantastic!!! I did follow some of the suggestions made in the reviews: *I used 3 regs sized cans of Delmonte Freestone Peaches - two with the juice and one drained. *Sprinkled cinnamon over the peaches and on top of the cake mix *Sprinkled brown sugar on top of the cake mix *Sliced the butter and arranged evenly over the top of the cake mix *Baked for an additional 10 minutes because it looked a bit runny after the 45 minutes. I can't wait to try this again with other fruit and cake mixes!!

Root Beer Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2012
We've made this recipe a few times now and it is one of our favorites! My one tip is to use a good bottled root beer that has a good bite to it.

Sausage 'n Stout Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2013
This is a great recipe! I did make a couple of adjustments: I browned the kielbasa a bit to start; instead of green onions, I used a regular yellow onion that I sauteed a bit; I used chicken stock instead of plain water; and I used one Cider Beer and one Guinness. I think next time I will add some carrots, celery, and a bit more cheese.

Pumpkin Tea Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2014
Great recipe! I've made it a few times and it turns out perfect every time. I did a few things differently: -Used dried cranberries instead of dates -Used pecans instead of walnuts -Added roasted pumpkin seeds - just for extra texture The last time I made this recipe, I made muffins instead of loaves and it made about a dozen and a half muffins.

Vegetarian Korma

Reviewed: May 6, 2013
Indian cuisine is one of our favorites, so I was super excited to try this recipe! It turned out better than I expected! My one issue was getting the potatoes to cook. I used two heaping spoonfuls of hot curry powder and one spoonful of maharajah curry powder (I buy mine from Penzey's, super worth it, very flavorful!!) Next time, I'm thinking about omitting the potatoes and using garbanzo beans instead. I also think I will take note of a few of the other suggestions and use coconut milk instead of heavy cream and adding cauliflower to the mix.
