Blonde Brownies I

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2013
If you love chewy chocolate chip cookies, this recipe is for you. I make it all in one bowl though...first melt the butter, then stir in the brown sugar, followed by the vanilla and egg. Then mix in the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Finish by stirring in the nuts and chocolate chips (we like ours stirred in, not on top). This consistently comes out perfectly, and we love them!

Phoenician's Key Lime Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
Outstanding! The almonds in the crust make it stand out, and the creamy, slightly tart filling is out of this world. I will make this pie again and again and again.

Best Ever Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
I made this cheesecake for Thanksgiving. I always make a shortbread crust, as I prefer it to a graham crust. I would give this five stars if it had more filling. Next time I will double the filling so I have a higher cheesecake. Mine was only about an inch thick in a 10 inch pan. That being said, it was lucious. Not too sweet, and with the dense cheesecake texture that I enjoy. I do not like the cheesecake style that uses sour cream. It was very lemony, but fresh and nice, not like an artificial extract flavor. I didn't measure the lemon zest, I just used the zest from one whole lemon, so it could have been more than a teaspoon. My dad especially enjoyed it, as he prefers less sweet desserts. It reminded him of a German style cheesecake. And I also liked the baking method, although I couldn't resist adding a pan of water to the oven. This is the first cheesecake I've ever made that hasn't cracked on top. It was really beautiful. Double the filling, and it gets five starts!

Baked Haddock

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2008
This was very, very good. I will absolutely make this again. I love the parmesean flavor. I used the shredded kind in the jar, as opposed to the dry kind from the shaker can, which I think has better flavor.

Chocolate Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2008
This is so good! I don't worry about how many bananas I have, I just use up what I have. Of course, more bananas will make for stronger banana flavor. Sometimes I add chopped pecans, sometimes not. I do agree with others that mini chips are the way to go. I have made this so many times. My girls love it and request it often. Tonight I made it for the first time in muffin pans, and it made 24 perfect muffins. I baked them for 15 minutes at 350. Do give this a try and enjoy!

French Apple Tart (Tarte de Pommes a la Normande)

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2007
I made two of these for a co-worker's birthday. I did not want to purchase apple brandy, so I substituted 1 tsp. almond extract to enhance the almond flavor. Also, instead of apples on one, I used fresh halved cherries. Both were excellent. I did not put the apricot glaze on the cherry tart, but dusted it with powdered sugar instead, and served both with fresh whipped cream. Well worth the effort.
