Tres Leches (Milk Cake)

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
The basic recipe is wonderful, but for those counting calories here are my modifications: I made the basic cake recipe as is written, with the slight change that I did separate the eggs as suggested. For the milk layer, I used 1 can of light coconut milk, 2% evaporated, and fat free sweetened condensed. I only poured about half to 3/4 of the milk on the cake, and that seemed to be enough. Moist, without being too rich. I let the cake set over night and then topped with 1 can of crushed pineapple, covered that with a layer of fat free whipped cream and then sprinkled with strawberries and mandarin oranges. Was a hit, and everyone appreciated the "lighter" version.

Spicy South of the Border Spinach Cheese Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
Excellent! Everywhere I take this it vanishes in seconds and gets rave reviews! After making it several times I make a couple of revisions.. I saute the onions with garlic and red pepper and use Rotel to add some spice. I also add in some sour cream and a little extra cheese. Otherwise it's great, but the recipe as written isn't very spicy.

BBQ Bacon Ranch Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2012
I don't know if we were just starving, or if this was really THAT good, but this got devoured within a few minutes of being set out. I used 1 container of whipped cream cheese and one fat free, spicy ranch mix, chopped red, green and yellow peppers and green onion and Sweet Baby Rays Rasp. Chipotle BBQ sauce. No problems scooping and tasted just fine cold!

Harvest Rice Dish

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
VERY good. The onions and cranberries are by far the best part.

Pumpkin Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
Very good. I followed the recipe exactly except doubling the pumpkin as others have suggested and I lightened by using light butter and fat free sour cream. Came out moist, almost with a more pudding-cake texture than your normal coffee cake. Very, good!

Brunch Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
These were good... a little bland- though I did use a mix of hot and sage sausage and added tons of veggies. Admittedly I forgot to put in the flour, which is why I'm hoping they were so runny and there was so much extra liquid. I think next time I will omit the milk, be sure to add the flour and spice up the sausage mix a little more. Good overall. Everyone seemed to like them.

The Meatball that Fell Off the Table

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2009
Awsome recipe.. the only thing I did different was to use half ground turkey and half lean ground beef, parmesan bread crumbs, a little bit of cayenne pepper and a ton more garlic. I baked instead of cooking them in a pan because I doubled the recipe and they wouldn't fit in the pan. I made a pan full of HUGE meatballs and my boyfriend literally ate almost the entire thing.. no joke. I served over mashed potatos with peas. Good comfort food.

Cinnamon Coffee Cake II

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
Delicious! I followed some of the other reviewers suggestions and made 2 days before... only half made it to the brunch! It was wonderful. I did make some substitutions- I used 1/2 cup applesauce and 1/2 cup of apple butter in place of the oil, I used half splenda brown sugar and half regular and I used 2 boxes of french vanilla pudding because my boyfriend doesn't like butterscotch. Everyone raved about it.
