Sweet Potato and Coconut Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2014
Very good! I've also made this with mashed very black plantains with equally good results ;)

BBQ Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2011
Use grilled chicken, cooked crumbled bacon, green onions, Sweet Baby Rays honey BBQ sauce, cheddar & Monterey Jack. Any pepper & the cilantro overpowers the rest of the ingredients. I drizzle mine thinly with ranch dressing. Great the way it is, this is just a preference & another option, ;)

Caramel Macchiato Cheesecake

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2013
Pretty good! Use half the sugar, you don't need a full cup. With the caramel on top & whipped cream it's plenty sweet. But definitely a keeper ;)

Pumpkin Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2012
I also made a roux, which u should do anyway. Half & half instead of milk, real butter, no pie spices, extra cheese, & I added browned Italian sausage & fresh parsley & sage. I'm sure it's good as printed also ;)

Cream Cheese Squares

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2012
Pretty much the same exact thing as the sopapilla cheesecake recipe you have on here, but still both are yummy!

My Best Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
Definitely the bacon, YES! I also use red skinned potatoes, leaving the skin on. Makes it pretty. And finish by adding green onion & parsley at the end. Yummy!!

Cranberry Streusel Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
As someone else stated, add an apple. It'll add sweetness without having to add more sugar. I add honey instead, & about 1/4-1/2 tsp. of ground cloves or allspice. Adds a bit more of a "holiday" flavor & aroma.

Sopapilla Cheesecake

Reviewed: May 5, 2010
Try drizzling with honey, cinn., & sugar if you don't want all that butter. Tasted better, too...

Sweet-Sour Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2010
I used to make a version of this 2x a week where I worked. Instead of peanuts, used sunflower seeds, golden raisins, red onion, & some bacon. The dressing was the same. Cider vinegar really makes a difference. There was also another version with broccoli, red onion, bacon, chunks of cheddar cheese, & a Vidalia onion dressing, for non-mayo people like myself...great base recipe!

Autumn Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2009
All the reviews are pretty much spot on. I make cheesecakes for my job & use the basic 3 8 oz. cream cheese, 3 egg, 3/4 c. sugar, 1 tsp. van. recipe. For the top, after microwaving the apples, lay in concentric circles. If you want to save having to use more butter/sugar, brush apples with melted apple jam after cooling cake in the oven for an hour. Pretty!

Virginia Apple Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
It was great! Made it for work, needed an extra dessert for a "Fall Favorites" menu real quick. I used extra apple, mixing it into the batter. I also added an egg. Served it with a little fresh cream drizzle dusted with a bit of cinnamon, wonderful...Could also make it to a brunch menu...

Mock Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2009
This is pretty close to a recipe from my diet page,(lost 55ibs. in 2 1/2 months), with the beans being mashed with a fork, VERY little LF mayo, red onion, chopped cucumber, lemon juice, black pepper, & a bit of chopped flat-leaf parsley. The lemon juice help you to not need the salt. Really good stuff!

Yogurt Spinach Dip

Reviewed: May 25, 2009
Used chopped water chestnuts & green onions like usual spinach dip. I also cut down the mayo,(1/2 cup), & used fat free, increasing the yogurt to 1 1/2 c. Using fresh herbs makes it even better, if your wanting to find ways to use up herbs from your garden. Pretty good.

Mango Cheese Tart with Blueberries

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2009
I used frozen mango, 3/4 cup. Add a little vanilla or almond extract. You could also use some instant cheesecake pudding mix to thicken if it doesn't work for you.

Chocolate Banana Cream Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2009
I baked it in 2 round cake pans as suggested, slicing to make 4 layers. To the filling, I added pineapple extract & 1/2 a small can of very well drained crushed pineapple. Then I sprinkled the inside layer with lightly toasted coconut & finely chopped macadamia nuts, finishing the top the same way before adding the 3 sliced banana garnish & mint leaves. AWESOME!!!!!

Melon, Mango, and Avocado Salad

Reviewed: May 5, 2014
Great summer salad. Being cilantro is a semi-acquired taste I've also done this sans avocado substituting lemons for lime/juice, fresh basil for cilantro, & sweet Cherubs (grape tomatoes, halved) for avocado. But I personally loved the original just the way it is. Many possibilities with fruits, herbs, & juices though. Thank you for a wonderful summer salad that's out of the norm. Will use this for catering also ;)

Penny's Whiskey Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2010
Like someone else said, same exact recipe as the Bacardi rum cake. ALWAYS a hit at Christmas. And experimenting with different liquors is awesome...

Amaretto Cheesecake I

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2014
Nice base, but like other reviews needed tweaking. I used almond biscotti as my crust. More cream cheese. Using pure almond extract with the vanilla helps with the flavor too. Thanks! ;)

Grilled Marinated Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2014
Great as is but I grow all my own herbs so used fresh everything. Do it. Fresh oregano isn't as strong a flavor. I can't stand dried, the only thing that should be used for are hoagies & pizza sauce lol...but fabulous recipe!
