Ibby's Pumpkin Mushroom Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2007
This dressing is absolutely amazing! we had three friends over for thanksgiving this year, and all of them- including my husband- loved it. He even raved about it to his co-workers :). I did make homemade pumpkin bread, however I left out the traditional "pumpkin pie spice". I didn't have any tarragon and I used mostly dried herbs instead of the fresh. It was fantastic. I will most certainly make this again for Christmas! The only thing I would change is that the bread was quite sweet, so I will probably reduce the sugar by a half cup. thanks for making our meal memorable!!

Quick Elephant Ears

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2008
I have been craving an elephant ear for over a week now, and this recipe just hit the spot! The key to the decadence is to brush them with butter before you add the cinnamon and sugar. Since you're eating fried white flour, you might as well add the butter and enjoy it! YUM!

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2008
I just made thse cookies to night for the first time on the spur of the moment for a harvest festival. They were FABULOUS. Everyone -and I mean Everyone- loved them- the 70 year olds and the 9 year olds alike. All I brought home was an empty plate! gotta make a double batch next time.

Eggplant Delight

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2008
This was quite a good recipe- not my all time favorite, but it was really nice for something different. I did follow some of the advice of others. I sauted the eggplant and onions in olive oil(making sure not to cook them down too much), and then I transfered to a sprayed casserole dish topped it with sliced tomatoes, garlic salt, pepper, and oregano, (I also sprayed a little oil on top of the toms)and put it in the oven for abot 7-8 minutes at 400deg to heat the tomatoes through. after the tomatoes were heated I put a generous amount of cheddar cheese on top and broiled it for about 8-9 minutes. I think that part of what made this so good was that all of the vegetables still had just a little bit of firmness to them rather than being a pile of mush. good stuff! will make it again!

Shortbread Crust

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
While I didn't really care for this recipe as a pie crust (too sweet for strawberry pie), I made the leftover dough into some AMAZING shortbread cookies. I followed the recipe to a "T", but took the advice of others and only used about half for the pie crust- it was still quite thick enough. Perhaps I should have sprayed the glass pie dish with cooking spray because it was extremely difficult to get the crust out with the pie. To top it all off- the strawberries did not set well, so I ended up with a pile of strawberry goo instead of pie. oh well. didn't taste too bad.

Garbanzo Bean Chocolate Cake (Gluten Free!)

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
I made this Gluten, Dairy, and Sugar free and it turned out fantastic!!! My husband's grandfather is gluten allergic, and his mom doesn't do dairy or white sugar. My husband's family did a gluten-dairy-sugar-free diet for 10 years and now that he is off it he avoids such things whenever possible. When I told him it didn't have any of those things he told me it would be taste free too- but he was wrong! He loved it! Here's what I did: 4 oz Ghirardelli 100% Cacao (cocoa) 1 1/4 cup honey 4 eggs 1 1/4 can (15 oz) garbanzo beans 1 tsp baking powder I reduced the temp to 325 because of the honey and baked it the same 40 min. dusted pan with cocoa powder. Everyone wanted the recipe! This one's a keeper for family get-togethers! Thanks!

Greek Seasoning

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2009
I'm so excited to see this! I've been using Cavander's, which tastes great, but it has MSG. will definitely start making my own from now on. Can't wait to try it out!

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
I was looking for a way to use up some leftover boiled potatoes, and Oh my word! This soup is amazing! It's true- the basil is what makes this recipe really pop. I doubled the recipe, and like others, I substituted half of the basil for thyme and half whipping cream/half sour cream for the half and half. I also opted for 3 Tbsp of flour since my potatoes weren't very starchy. This soup was virtually perfect! And even I- a salt fiend- didn't need to add any extra salt!

Seven Layer Magic Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
My family just loves these! like a few others, I poured the butter into the pan, sprinkled the crumbs on top (I used two cups), and then mixed it in the pan. I also lightly sprayed the top of the crust with cooking spray to make sure it wasn't too dry. Rather than layering the chips, I mixed them together with half of the condensed milk, spooned them on top of the "crust" then layered with the coconut and walnuts. Before baking I drizzled the other half of the condensed milk on top to give it a caramelized look- plus I think it might help it stick together a little better. yum!

100% Home Ground Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
I'm not really sure how the ingredients got so messed up, but 1) it doesn't need to be bread flour and 2) it should be 1/2 CUP of EVOO.

Movie Star Popcorn

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2010
This is pretty much the same way I make mine, but I no longer waste my taste buds on yellow popping corn. ALWAYS use white- you will *never go back! White kernels make the popcorn much fluffier and the hull is much smaller and thus not as hard. This is also safer if you are going to feed it to toddlers- less of a choking hazard.

Pork Tetrazzini

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
I give this recipe 5 stars not really based on the original recipe (although it is a good base), but rather on my own adjustments which I made after reading comments that it was bland on its own. I will eventually add this as a separate recipe. My husband loved this recipe. My adjustments are as follows. added 1tsp garlic powder, added 1/4 C dried/crushed spinach, 3/4tsp salt, used onion powder rather than onion salt, substituted rotini for the spaghetti. The only thing I omitted was the bay leaf. Followed directions, but added the flour to the butter/onions before adding broth. added cooked pork to sauce before pouring over pasta. This turned out very well, but next time I will cover it with aluminum foil for the first 20 minutes to prevent the pasta from getting chewy.
