Apple Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2008
I substituted butter for the shortening and used a LOT more apples. I used about 6 small apples. The extra apples made the cake really chunky and really good! I put it all in one medium size spring form pan and cooked it for 70 minutes. The cake was absolutely perfect!

Fried Mozzarella Cheese Sticks

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2008
I followed the prep for this recipe, but baked my cheese sticks for about 8 minutes at 400. They were really good. My husband and I both thought that they tasted better than ones from a restaurant (or the ones from the frozen food section) because they have so much more flavor. Cooking for 8 minutes they did not get super gooey, so when I make these again I might cook them another minute or two.

Cranberry Sauce with Jalapeno Peppers

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
Based on some previous reviews I made a couple changes. I used 2/3 cup water and 1/3 cup lite corn syrup and 1/2 cup Splenda in place of the sugar. Left out the lemon juice and substitute triple sec for the sherry. This was amazing! It tasted like jalapeno jelly with cranberries. I'll be making it again and every Thanksgiving from now on!

White Beans with Rigatoni

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2008
This was really good! I made a few changes just based on what I had on hand. I added bell peppers and a can of corn. I used black beans and mozzarella cheese because I had those on hand. This is my and my husband's favorite meal ever made with kale. I think you could make a lot of changes (additions or substitutions) and still have a really great dish!

Strawberry Broco-Flower Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2010
Nice summer salad. I was looking for something different to use up some cauliflower and broccoflower we'd bought. Substituted pecans for the almonds, as it is what we had on hand. Would definitely make again.

Valencian Savory Empanadas

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2008
If you are not a fan of refrigerated bread mixes (i.e. Pillsbury) this recipe is not for you. I thought it would be ok by the time we added sour cream & pico de gallo on the top, but I just could not get over that refrigerated dough taste. I might make this again, but I'll make my own dough in the bread machine.

Oat Soup

Reviewed: May 7, 2007
We don't usually eat tomato soups, but this one was a winner. Next time I might add more oats, but the cilantro really made the soup. I froze half of it for later and will definitely make this again sometime!

Strawberry Trifle

Reviewed: May 11, 2007
Very Good! To keep the cake from getting too soogy I baked it in a 9x13 baking dish and then tore it into pieces. I left it sitting out for about 2 hours so that the pieces would harden up a little. Then I put it all together. Now (2 days later) it is all still great and not soggy at all!

Snowy Pecan Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2011
Something just isn't right about these. I followed the recipe exactly (except did 1 1/2 times recipe b/c my chocolate was 6oz) and these just came out so dry that they wouldn't stick together. I have a pile of chocolately pecan crumbles. I wouldn't make them again or either I'd try it without the overnight refrigeration to prevent the drying effect.

Tim's Green Bean Casserole Extraordinaire

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
This is obvisously a VERY heavy recipe. Don't make it if you are looking for something light. I made a few changes and I thought it was really good! I used 1lb fresh green beans, added some garlic, used 7oz of Brie and instead of corn flakes I used a box of Blue Diamond Almond Nut Thin crackers. The almond flour crackers were a really nice mix w/the casserole. I'll be making it again for sure.

Supreme Apple Butter

Reviewed: May 7, 2007
Very easy! I didn't have apple brandy so I substituted apple barrel schnapps and black spiced rum! I pretty much left it alone once it started and it turned out perfectly!

Chicken, Stuffing and Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2007
Very good recipe! I used fresh green beans, gorgonzola cheese, cream of celery soup and turkey stove top just because those are what I had on hand and it was amazing. I think you are better off with a white/creamy cheese than a cheddar type cheese.

Onion Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: May 12, 2007
I only used one pouch of onion soup mix and it turned out perfectly. I didn't have any trouble with the onion flakes burning either. I cooked it in the toaster oven for about 20 minutes!

Spicy Black Bean Cakes

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2007
These were really great. I've never had anything similar. I made a few changes. My sweet potatoes were really large so I actually ended up tripling the recipe. I microwaved the grated sweet potatoes for 1 minute as mentioned in other reviews. I had 20oz cans of black beans, so I used 2 of those and 1 can of refried black beans. I did not mash the regular black beans, so in the cakes you had whole beans plus the refried black beans helping to hold it all together. I added lots of jarred jalapeños and a little bit of juice from the jar. DH and I both really loved these. I wrapped this & put them in the refrigerator and hope they are just as good reheated!!

Italian Torte

Reviewed: May 12, 2007
I changed this up a little. I took 1 block of cream cheese and mixed it with sun dried tomato pesto (store bought). I put the cream cheese/pesto mixture into a small loaf pan and layered with goat cheese. I baked it for about 20 minutes and then put it in the refrigerator. We ate it cold from the refrigerator on wheat things. very good and used stuff I had on hand!
