Double-Layer Key Lime Cheesecake

Reviewed: May 26, 2012
Just made this for a cookout and it was completely gobbled up and raved about, even from people that don't normally like key lime pie (myself included). I've only ever had one key lime pie that I liked and this was my best attempt at recreating it.

Boston Baked Beans

Reviewed: May 26, 2012
Perfect! Everyone at the cookout LOVED these and they're not even accustomed to baked beans. I followed the instructions precisely and only substituted Great Northern beans for Navy and used turkey bacon (I don't do pork). It didn't specify how to encorporate the bacon; but after a little research, I decided to precook the bacon for the bottom layer and leave the top layer uncooked, and cut all into 1-2" pieces. I used a cast iron Dutch oven and they turned out amazing. Thanks!

HCG Strawberry Balsamic Salad with Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2012
Modified this for the HCG diet and it's absolutely delicious! Used a couple tblsp water instead of oil, 1/2 tbsp liquid stevia instead of honey and second time making it, I used onion powder instead of shallot. It was terrific both ways and had a little less bite to it with the onion powder (though I do love shallots). I also added about a tsp of thyme and oregano. I put this dressing on everything and have even used it as a marinade. Yum!

Basil Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
It's good! Mine turned out a little too chunky, but I might have over-measure the nuts or under-processed. I will process more thoroughly next time, everything kept sticking to the sides of my processor so it was tough to get the right consistency. I've been mixing the leftover sauce with mayo and using it as an aioli spread.

Devil's Food Sheet Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
I'm giving benefit of the doubt that perhaps this doesn't work so well unless used with an actual sheet pan. I only did a test run with one round pan and cut all ingredients in half. It didn't make much batter, barely enough to fill one 9" pan, the batter was runny and did not rise enough. I suspect that it was missing some baking powder. The texture was a little on the dry side; my husband noticed more than I did, though the we both agreed it tasted "ok". My 3 yr old gobbled it up with no complaints at all. I did not use the icing recipe as I needed a white icing for coloring.

Rick's Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
Sorry, but this just didn't work for me. It was sweet, but didn't taste like butter and the texture was a little too fluffy. I just prefer more density. I could see how some would like it, just not my preference.
