Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2001
Let's just say that I couldn't leave it alone all by itself in the lonely oven. It was calling my name to just taste a bite, and so I gave in. My husband and I are both cheesecake connoisseurs, and so we really know our cheesecake. Apparently, you do as well, Chantal. From now on, we will be skipping desert at our favourite Italian restaurant and baking our own cheesecake that we can eat for days--if it lasts that long! Thanks a bunch for this recipe. I will definitely be passing it along.

Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2006
I made this cornbread in a hurry to go with a pot of stew, and I was worried because there are so many good cornbread recipes. This is my new favorite. It's so easy to make and the reward is wonderful, sweet cornbread. The only change I made was to substitute melted butter for the oil, but that's just because I didn't have oil on hand. It was wonderful. No more box mixes for me!

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: May 26, 2007
This was surprisingly easy to make. But it certainly tastes like something I spent all day making. This is by far the best homemade pie I have ever made - this recipe is phenomenal! Thank you for sharing!

Cream Cheese Pound Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2012
I am getting ready to make a birthday cake for my mom, who is turning 65 in a couple of weeks. I needed a cake that had a great, simple, clean flavor and a nice, tight crumb for decorating. I decided to make this recipe exactly as written the first time around, and I wasn't disappointed. I couldn't even wait for the thing to cool off completely before nibbling at the crunchy brown top... sooo good. I know for my own personal tastes, this is money. But I will take some other bakers' recommendations and reduce the sugar to 2 1/2 cups next time. This recipe has endless possibilities for flavor combinations - I can't wait to play around with it! This is definitely the cake for my mom's birthday, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that it's a cake that will have its own place in my everyday recipe collection as well. Great recipe!

Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2007
This was really, really great. It was a lot easier to make than I would ever have expected. I don't care much for vanilla so I substituted maple flavoring and I didn't have enough corn syrup so I used a previous poster's suggestion and used honey instead. My 6 year old and I are probably going to finish it and not have any left for DH when he gets home from work! Thanks for the recipe!

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2007
This was so much easier to make than I could ever have imagined. After coming home late from work one night and having two hungry mouths to feed (husband and 6 year old son), I was looking for something quick and easy but very tasty. My husband is from Northern Ireland, and I thought this would be a great dish to try on him. He ate a large first helping and then went back for seconds! This is great! I'm looking forward to trying it again!!

Banoffee

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2008
While living in Northern Ireland, I would eat this like there was no tomorrow whenever my mother-in-law would make it. Since my in-laws are in town visiting, I wanted to try this out and see how it was received. I slacked a bit on the condensed milk - I substituted (as others have done) the milk with Dulce de Leche, which is easy to find in any store in Texas where I now live. My only complaint about my dish was that the bananas in the store were not as ripe as they should have been for this dish. I topped it with whipped cream and finely chopped pecans. My mother-in-law seemed to really love it, which made me very happy. I am glad I came across this recipe! Thanks for sharing!

Delicious Egg Salad for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
I had to come back here and edit my previous review... Just have to add that I made this again, but this time, I made my own mayonnaise, too. Super terrific yummy great! Love this recipe!! I really loved this and found it a great way to kill the inexplicable egg salad craving I've been having lately (I hate eggs!). Only thing I did was add some bacon pieces to the leftovers. Very nice with or without the bacon. :) Thanks for sharing!

Cracked Sugar Cookies I

Exactly what I was craving in a sugar cookie. I was up at 1am making these cookies to satisfy my sweet tooth. They were very easy to make and very tasty!

Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie

I thought this pie was fantastic. Surprisingly easy to make (this was the first from-scratch lemon meringue pie I've made), and I thought it tasted great. Thanks for the recipe! Jules

Dark Chocolate Cake II

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2009
I had a serious chocolate craving... just to give you an idea of how desperate I was for something chocolatey, it's 1am where I am. I don't have any butter on hand which renders my other chocolate cake recipe useless, so I did some browsing and came across this one. No butter. Great reviews. First off, the batter was an indication that this cake was going to be great. I actually reserved a bit and prepared a little ramekin I have and made a single serving microwave cake while the big ones baked in the oven. Wonderfully moist and sweet, very chocolatey. I did follow others' advice to add more cocoa powder (used a little more than a cup) and some more sugar (used about 1 1/4 cup). I made 2 cakes (9" round pans) - one for me and one for a neighbor. I dusted mine with some simple powdered sugar for a clean and simple look. And after 3 - yes, THREE - pieces, I had to log on to review this before I slipped into a chocolate coma. Oh, and I don't really have to worry about cleaning up because the one bowl thing is brilliant. Great recipe - this will be replacing my current chocolate cake recipe. Thanks for sharing.

Sweet Potato Bread I

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
Very tasty. I'll definitely be making this again to use any leftover sweet potatoes. :-) I had to modify it a bit because I didn't have oil. I used 1/2 cup butter flavored Crisco, and it still came out perfectly.

Spinach Noodles

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2010
ended up adding a load more flour but think it was because I didnt allow the spinach to drain fully. Very nice.

Cinnamon Ice Cream

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2010
I made two batches of this. The first batch was the standard recipe. The second batch, I used 3 egg yolks (eliminated the whites) and used apple pie spice in place of cinnamon (I'd used all the cinnamon I had in the first batch!). I also folded in some chopped pecans. This stuff was really amazing! It goes super well with Grandma Ople's apple pie from this site - the pie doesn't have cinnamon, and the ice cream compliments the pie PERFECTLY!

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
This was my first attempt at homemade carrot cake. I always thought it was going to be a very complicated process, but this was so easy... Probably my oven but these cakes were done in about 40 minutes. The result was a moist and very flavorful cake that I will be making again and again!

Spaghetti Carbonara II

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2010
This was surprisingly easy to make. I've heard horror stories (and even tasted a few) about the eggs going scrambledy... But this was a very tasty dish that my family enjoyed.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
Delicious! I read a recommendation on another review that suggested to mix the ingredients by hand. So I put away my KitchenAid and worked up a sweat creaming and stirring and blending. I used a 1/2 tablespoon cookie scoop and coated the little balls in the cinnamon sugar mixture using a Ziploc bag (4 at a time, using a 1qt bag). I baked each batch *exactly* 9 minutes, and they came out beautifully! I love that gorgeous cracked top and the wonderful soft texture. I stored the majority of the cookies in my cookie jar with a slice of bread to keep them soft, and on the second day, they were still melt-in-your-mouth!
