Authentic New Orleans Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2015
These were really good. Have an excellent flavor with a spicy kick. Good thick, texture although I did smash a few beans to thicken the sauce but my family enjoys the beans mostly intact, as well. We were able to make two meals out of this amount. I will be making these again.

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2014
My youngest son has been requesting a key lime pie, so I came here to look for one. I made this for New Year's Eve and it was fabulous. I thawed a small tub of cool whip and spread a layer on top of the cooled pie before serving. I also have a confession...I did not have any key limes or key lime juice, so I just used the bottled lime juice (ReaLime) that I had on hand and it worked just as well. And actually, if anything, the pie was a little less bitter than with the key lime juice, which I prefer but my son wants me make it with actual key limes to compare. Great recipe!

Pumpkin Gingerbread

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2013
I made this 3 days ago and it was a huge hit with my boys. We loved it. The texture was perfect, moist and oh so delicious. It was quite spicy, but it IS a gingerbread. It's already been requested that I make more. This one is a holiday keeper.

Prego® Good-For-You Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2012
These were delicious! My husband absolutely loved them and proclaimed this recipe a keeper. The only thing I did differently was to add about 3 heaping tablespoons of minced garlic into the ground beef after browning, as we love garlic. I also used red bell peppers because I couldn't find enough green ones at our local produce stand and my husband prefers the red to the green peppers anyway due to their sweeter flavor. And, I used a combination of sharp cheddar and a mexican blend of cheeses that I had on hand. The peppers smelled so good while baking. I will be making these again soon.

Classic Tiramisu

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2012
Made this for my son's 12th birthday...at his request (tiramisu is one of his favorite desserts) and we all loved it! That included my husband who said he wouldn't like it because he hates coffee...and then loved it so much he was a little greedy eating 3 bowls! But in all fairness he has never liked any that we've tried in restaurants. My son keeps asking me when I'm going to make it again. I'm going to have to soon. Very, very good!

The Best Parmesan Chicken Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2012
Made this last night for dinner and it was incredible! It smelled so good while cooking and tasted just as good as it smelled. My husband and boys loved it, as did I. I made my own fettucini florentine to accompany it. This was a very easy and deliciously satisfying meal!

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2012
I made this last Monday because we were craving cookies but I wasn't in the mood to go through the trouble of making pan after pan of individual cookies, and I had this recipe I wanted to try for family parties. My oldest son and husband absolutely loved this! My only problem was my fault...I used a round pizza pan smaller than the one suggested, and the cookie dough melted and expanded and overflowed the pan into my oven. I was guessing at the size pizza pan I had on hand, and was apparently off by a few inches! But, the mess was surprisingly easy to clean up and didn't affect the finished product at all. The cookie was soft and chewy and buttery. My husband said it would be perfect served warm with vanilla ice cream, and my son just keeps asking me to make it again. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2011
I made this dish last night to go with fried tilapia filets and creamed spinach. We couldn't stop eating it. It was a little more dense than what I was expecting, based on other reviews...but very delicious regardless. I might try adding a little bit of baking powder next time just to see what happens. I will definitely be making this again. My husband is a huge corn fan.

Southern Sweet Potato Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2011
This pie IS very sweet, but it's really good. I call this our candied yam pie, lol. My boys love it...and so do I, as I am a huge sweet potato fan. My husband, who isn't a fan, still eats this pie. Very good!

Sweet Baby Carrots

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2011
These were delicious! I've made them twice now, and my family loved them. They were fabulous with southern fried pork chops...wonderful contrast to the savory meat. This will be a regular in our house.

Coconut Orange Cupcakes

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2011
I made this for my youngest son's 11th birthday, as he wanted an orange cake. I baked it in 2 9" round pans and frosted it with a home made buttercream frosting. I put the toasted coconut inbetween the two layers, and also on the top and sides of the cake. The cake was so delicious! He loved it, and was very pleased. The whole cake was gone before noon the next day. It did have more of a 'muffin' texture....not as fine as a cake texture...but we still loved it. It would definitely be awesome as a sort of 'coffee cake', minus the butter cream.

Honey Lime Tilapia

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2011
My family and I just didn't like this one very much, I'm sorry to say. I'm basing the rating merely on how well we liked the flavors, nothing else about the recipe. I'm inexperienced at preparing fish, and I thought I'd like these flavors, but I just didn't like the sweetness with the fish. It was too sweet in our opinion. It was edible, but not something I'd prepare again. Sorry! Just personal preference.

Jalapeno Garlic Tilapia Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
My family really loved this dish. My youngest son proclaimed it to be 'perfect'! The only changes I really made to the recipe were to add extra spinache, because we all love it, and just about tripled the sauce...otherwise it would have been much drier. I was looking for quick and easy recipes for a change of pace to spice up my repertoire, and this one really hit the spot. I will be making this again soon. Thanks for sharing!

Pecan Coconut Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
I found this recipe here last year and made it for Thanksgiving, and then again for Christmas. My family loved it. It has become my favorite pecan pie. I love the combination of coconut and pecan. The taste is rich and buttery. It's easy to make and it fills the house with the most divine fragrance as it bakes. I'm making it again this year for the holidays.
