Eclair Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2011
I made this cake twice in one week and I was intent in producing a rich, creamy dessert. Both times I used homemade ganache topping and I used whole milk for the pudding. I did use whipped topping as the recipe called for. The first cake had 9 hours to soften and comingle flavors. It was very good but the graham crackers were not fully softened. Everyone liked it however my dad preferred milk chocolate for the ganache. I used bittersweet chocolate so it was not very sweet. The second cake I made 60 hours in advance of consumption for an office lunch and it was wonderful. This time I used semisweet chocolate. In fact the lunch and dessert were also a competition and my Éclair Cake won first place, out of six other desserts. For both cakes I added a nice decorative variegated white topping (using a toothpick technique, like a spider web. See photo.) This is a keeper recipe!

Lemon Pie I

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2011
I find this pie so addicting I made it two weekends in a row. My slight variations are: regular deep dish pie crust, added lemon zest to the mix, and used a doubled recipe of Easy Whipped Cream recipe (found on Allrecipes.com) which includes sour cream for a smooth, creamy filling. I did not top the pie off with whipped cream like the picture. Tasty, refreshing, light. If you like lemon flavor you will love this pie. Very easy and quick to make.

Slow Cooker Spaghetti Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
Nice comfort food. It's impossible to have just one serving. I used wheat spaghetti and instead of boiling the chicken, I browned the cut meat in olive oil and garlic powder. For quicker melting, cut the Velveeta in small pieces. As others mention, a slow cooker doesn't seem necessary. Save having to wash another pot and cook the entire mix in the same pot used for the pasta.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
I slow cooked this the same morning at my office for an office lunch and got many compliments. As was suggested by many reviewers, I added a bag of frozen mixed vegetables (carrot, corn, and peas), 2 celery sticks and chicken broth in lieu of plain water. I used one can of cream of chicken and one can of cream of celery. Added spices included paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper. I did precut the meat since I would not have the luxury of shredding the meat while at the office. I marinated the cut meat overnight in the dry spices. Precutting the breast meat did not seem to dry it out as others had mentioned but I think the shredded texture is preferred over the chucks. Next time I will let the dumplings cook a little longer (about 2 hour's total) before serving.

Philadelphia New York-Style Sour Cream-Topped Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
All in all, it was very tasty but nothing extra special. Next time I will add a little lemon zest as it needed a little oomph to the filling. I baked it in the 9x13 pan as directed but I thought a thicker cheesecake would be more satisfying (aka use a smaller pan-9”-10” springform). And I might try doubling the sour cream portion as the sour cream flavor was too subtle. I added a blackberry whiskey sauce for mild added sweetness.

German Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2008
Yummy and rich! As suggested I added 1oz additional semi-sweet chocolate to the 4oz of German Chocolate to the cake mix and I made 1 1/2 portion of the frosting. Perfect amount. Everyone in the office loved it and suggested I become a baker as a second career. Great recipe!

Creamy Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2007
Quick and easy. I added additional fresh mushrooms, cooked lean beef with worcestershire sauce in lieu of salt and used reduced fat sour cream. Still very creamy and very tasty.

I brought this for our office breakfast club, and it was a hit. Quick and easy to prepare. I used butter instead of shortening.

Mandarin Almond Salad

Reviewed: May 14, 2001
I really liked the salad, especially the almonds, although my husband thought the green onions were overpowering. Next time I'll use half the perscribed amount.

Sensational Sirloin Kabobs

Reviewed: May 14, 2001
Marinaded meat tasted great and I alternated the meat between each vegetable. Everyone loved the kabobs. Next time though I'll cut the beef into 1" cubes.

The rice was good but I expected more flavor. I used Spanish saffron, but next time I will use Indian saffron instead.
