Seafood Gumbo

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
I added some squid and 1 pound of turkey sausage. I also substituted black pepper for the white pepper powder (a little carton of white pepper cost 4 bucks, while black pepper costs 69 cents. See my point?). I also served long grain white rice on top of this. It was great.

Three Berry Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
I used 1/4 cup of cornstarch and 5 cups of mixed berries (1 cup of strawberries, and the remaining four cups a mixture of blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries). Tangy, sweet, and delicious. It also tastes great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Wheat Germ Whole-Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
These pancakes are wonderful! Soft, fluffy, and light! I also added 1/4 cup of mixed berries and 2 T. of chopped walnuts to make Berry Walnut Pancakes once. Delicious!

Grilled Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
I very rarely like my mother's food, but when she made this, I loved it! The second time I made this, I served it over linguine with the sauce the user "Donna Jean" recommended. I also served a salad and garlic bread on the side. It was great!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Nut Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
I took out the almonds and sugar for the top. I also used 3/4 a cup of cocoa powder instead of 1/2. And by the way, my muffins were done in 20 minutes, so watch out for those timers!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
I used 1/4 a cup of water and coated the flour mixture. For the topping, I added 1/4 a teaspoon of nutmeg, and used regular oats, as I did not have quick cooking oats. It still turned out great!

Libby's® Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
Surprisingly, everyone in my family LOVED this cheesecake. My father did not think he would like it, but he devoured it. I, however, was not a big fan of this cheesecake (and I am the cheesecake monster in my house!). There was a slightly strange taste that I just did not care too much for. Overall, this is a good, solid, easy to follow recipe that I will use again and again (everyone, absolutely everyone loved it!).

Red Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2008
I cut out the steak seasoning (because I didn't have it) and the sugar (following the advice of other reviewers). I also used evaporated milk instead of half and half, and it turned out fine. I also used 3 good sized garlic cloves and chopped them up. Put one of the chopped garlic cloves to boil with the potatoes and used the other two chopped cloves with the mashed potatoes. And since I needed the beaters for beating whipped cream, I mashed my potatoes in a food processor. It stayed a little lumpy, just the way I like it.

Coconut-Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
AMAZING RECIPE! Since I didn't have any coconut flavoring, I used some extra shredded coconut. Absolutely delicious! I use this on many cakes - carrot, white, yellow, coconut cake, coconut pound cake - everybody loves it! If you are looking for an all around good frosting that can be used on many cakes, this is the one! It is FABULOUS! You must try it.

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
Fabulous recipe! The first time I made this, I toasted the sesame seeds and poppy seeds to bring out their flavor (definitely a must), added blue cheese, used toasted walnuts instead of toasted almonds (was out of almonds), and used 1/3 a cup of sugar. The second time I made this salad, I followed the recipe to a T. I will say that I definitely liked the first one more. Why? Well, 1/2 a cup of sugar is wayyy too much. Even with 1/3 or 1/4 cup of sugar, the dressing is sweet! Second of all, you gotta have some kind of crumbly cheese - blue and feta would work well. Third of all, you cannot refrigerate the salad dressing. I believe someone recommended that step, and in my opinion, they deserve a medal for that. If you refrigerate the salad dressing, it becomes a sugary, sesame seedy paste that is very hard to distribute evenly among the spinach leaves. Even though I prefer the salad with my variations, I still gave this recipe five stars because the original version is very tasty!

Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2009
What a great and simple recipe! I have found this to be very versatile - I have successfully added 1 cup of either frozen berries, frozen diced peaches, or chocolate chips without ruining the texture or taste of the coffee cake. However, it is great when plain too! This is definitely my favorite coffee cake recipe, as I can always slightly modify or add something to it and still end up with great results.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: May 21, 2009
I LOVE this cheesecake (as does everyone else that eats it). It is sooo thick and delicious. It's like a brick of cheesecakey goodness. My only complaints are that I would like it if the top of my cheesecake got more brown (the flavor is better then) and to use 5 T. of melted butter in the crust instead of 2 T. If I use 2 T., it's wayyy too crumbly and dry. Oh, and as always, I always top the cheesecake with canned cherry pie filling and piped whipped cream. Delicious and pretty!

Missy's Candied Walnut Gorgonzola Salad

Reviewed: May 27, 2009
AWESOME! I have found that blue cheese works just as well as gorgonzola cheese, and that I prefer Kraft raspberry vinagrette instead of the one listed here - not saying that it's bad though! The first couple of times that I made this recipe, I followed it to a T, and it was still a give star recipe! Yum yum!

Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2009
LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe! Especially the crunchy, delicious topping. My only complaint is that this recipe is a little sweet - I would probably cut back on the sugar a little. However, with less or the same amount of sugar, this is fantastic! Whole family loved it.

Greek Veggie Salad II

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
Love it! However, I use only 1/2 c. of red wine vinegar, and I still have plenty of dressing left over.

Cranberry Upside-Down Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
Beautiful, absolutely gorgeous cake! I have discovered that this cake tastes best with 1 2/3 c. cranberries instead of 1 1/4 c. Walnuts can also be substituted for pecans (though the pecans do taste better). Also, the bread part was very light (in a good way), but a little bland. So, I use a spice mixture consisting of: 1 t. cinnamon, 1/4 t. ginger, 1/4 t. nutmeg, 1/8 t. allspice, and 1/8 t. cloves. Next time, I might try the orange juice and zest addition that somebody recommended. As a plus, this is a super easy recipe!

Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
Oh yummy yum yum! The first time I made this, I followed the recipe to a T. The second time, I used 1/2 c. oil+ 1/2c. applesauce instead of the butter and used 1.5 c. frozen mixed berries. I would DEFINITELY recommend using mixed berries instead of blueberries because the tartness is absolutely DELICIOUS! Everybody loved this recipe. 5/5.

Molasses Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
My favorite molasses cookie recipe EVER. The only difference is that I use canola oil instead of margarine (someone I know cannot consume a lot of saturated fat). Still comes out amazing every single time! I would definitely recommend watching the cookies carefully - one minute too much can lead to dry, hard cookies. Oh, and I forgot the mention - these are soooo pretty - as they cool, they form the prettiest crinkles and cracks!

Soft Christmas Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
Yum! This recipe provided me with many soft, delicious, cookies. The only thing I changed was the margarine - I used butter instead. Sugar cookies just taste so much better with butter!

Simple, easy, and downright good! I use this as a cranberry sauce and as a filling in coffee cake. It's fab!
