Pecan Pie Bars I

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2011
Awesome! Took to a tailgate party and everyone loved them! I even kinda liked them and I hate pecan pie! Used an 11x15 cake pan and upped the serving size to 40....it called for 4 1/2 eggs so I used 5. Used half sugar, half brown sugar in the filling. Used all salted butter instead of margarine. Got rave reviews--one man said it was not icky sweet but not bland either, just perfect! Used parchment paper. Placed halved pecans on top instead of mixing them in. So pretty. I loved the crust--just like a shortbread cookie! Kind of formed the crust up the sides to hold the filling in. Had to bake for 40 minutes. Will definitely make it again!

Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
VERY GOOD!! I added 1 more potato, a little more rosemary, added garlic powder to beef when browning, and added squeeze garlic. Had to 5x the amount of cornstarch to make it a light gravy consistency. would add more carrots next time. I am not a beef stew person because I can't stand chewy meat but this was sooo tender and I wiped the bowl clean!! I will def have this again and again this winter!!!

Peach Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2010
Wow! Surprisingly good! I used Truvia instead of sugar and I also added some olive oil--not quite 1/4 of a cup. I ate mine like a regular salad with a lot of greens in it.

Overnight Blueberry French Toast

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2010
I wasn't sure if I was going to like this with the cream cheese in it but I ended up loving it! I halved the recipe and put it in an 11x7 pyrex and it fit perfectly. I used fresh Texas toast that I threw in the oven directly onto the oven rack. The oven had 'leftover warmth' from dinner and it dried it out a bit. I used just shy of the amount of milk called for due to other complaints of it being too soggy. Kept the eggs and cream cheese the same (per half recipe). I used frozen organic blueberries which are way smaller than normal blueberries and liked it very well. I sprinkled cinnamon and nutmeg on top but next time will mix it in the egg batter because when I went to put it in the oven I used another reviewers suggestion and flipped the entire thing over so that the top would get some of the egg wash, and now my spices were on the bottom crust. I am glad I flipped it because my results were a perfectly light and fluffy, but still moist, bread that I think characterizes French Toast! I also mixed my cream cheese with powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla, all of which I eyeballed and mixed to a spreading consistency then spread onto half the bread slices and then cut them up.

Boudreaux's Zydeco Stomp Gumbo

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2010
Hubby loved it-too spicy for me though. Used 3 cans chicken broth, green pepper instead of chili pepper, and used just shy of 1/4 cup Cajun seasoning. Used a splash of Tabasco and a dash or two of cayenne pepper. Will not use cayenne and Tabasco next time. Used more chicken and more sausage than called for, but need to Double shrimp. Was very good overall if u like it hot.

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: May 30, 2010
This was ok. I marinated for 3 hrs. Cooked on George foreman grill. Thought it'd taste much better based on all the reviews.

Purple Plum Pie

Reviewed: May 30, 2010
Used some homegrown plums a coworker gave me so all the plums didn't go to waste. It was waaay too tart. I think it was because the plums were so small, about 1and a half inches diameter, and there was so much tart skin in the recipe as a result. Took it to work and no one really ate it and no one commented on it. I personally did not care for it. I think it would be much better with store bought plums.

Extreme Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2010
Very good! Made 13x9 size and baked 45 min. made frosting per recipe but it tasted too bitter as others had mentioned, so I added 2 TBL more of butter and a splash of milk (probably 1-2 TBL) and it was Perfect!! Let it mix in my Kitchenaid mixer for about 5 minutes and it was nice and smooth--not gritty. This frosting recipe made WAY too much for a 13x9 size, though (and I like a LOT of frosting--I put it on about 3/4" thick and I STILL had half a bowl of frosting remaining that could have frosted another cake!).

Beef Tips and Noodles

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2010
Loved it! I too used 2 cans cream of mushroom soup, a soup can full of milk and added about a teaspoon beef boullion granules. That made the perfect amount of gravy. Also, I sauteed onion and portabello mushroom in olive oil and butter, then poured about 1/4 cup red wine to deglaze the pan. Then I added the soups/water mixture. My store didn't have sirloin tips so I used "beef for stir fry" which I won't use again. I will use stew meat or better yet, leftover roast meat.

Hot Fudge Ice Cream Bar Dessert

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2010
I had my doubts as I was putting this together but was pleasantly surprised by the end results. I crushed up cocktail peanuts and put them in between layers and used crushed up reeses pb cups on top. I loved the contrasting saltiness from the peanuts. And I drizzles caramel topping on top with the reeses. Very very good. Halved recipe and 5 of us ate it, with more than half remaining!

Foolproof Rib Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2009
OK here's how I did it for a 5 lb roast (which fed 4 adults exactly-no leftovers). I let it sit out on counter for 1 hr. When I put it in oven the roast was 36 degrees. After 1 hr in the oven it was 81 deg. Oven off--after 1 1/2 hrs it was 140 deg, at 2 1/2 hrs it was 134 deg. and at 3 hrs it was 127 degrees. I panicked because the temp got up to 140 and since my oven runs kinda hot, i opened the oven door and left it cracked open about 10 minutes and then closed it again for the rest of the time. Next, Oven on again and at 34 min it was only at 128 deg. and at 44 minutes it was 135 degrees and then I took it out. It reached 145 degrees right at about 10 minutes sitting out on counter, covered. Oh and I also added Rosemary and minced jarred garlic to the rub. I also took another reviewers advice and made an au jus using about 28 oz beef broth and about a tablespoon of beef boullion granules added to pan after the 3 hr oven-off period. There was some seasoning in the pan that fell off roast from the beginning so that made it even tastier! Oh and No, do NOT cover roast while in oven. Absolutely perfect! My husband, who kept bugging me to use his mom's recipe, was really impressed with this roast. He actually has been telling our friends that it was "Fantastic", which, coming from him, is a huge compliment! Made for Christmas Eve dinner and it will be a holiday tradition from now on!

Garlic Mashed Potatoes Secret Recipe

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2009
Used 10 pounds potatoes and 3 whole bulbs of garlic, roasted. It was perfect--not too garlicky at all. Made for office luncheon and it disappeared! Will use again but only for special occasions due to all the butter and cheese!!

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
Perfect! Definitely double the sauce, I used 1 pound fresh shrimp, and used the House Fried Rice recipe from this site. Definitely a winner at our house! Can't wait for the leftovers. Next time I will try adding some Louis Kemp crabmeat.

Amish Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
Very good! I have tried many breakfast casseroles with bread in it and have never really been impressed but this one impressed me! Was very worried that the amount of eggs did not seem near enough for the amounts of all the cheese and stuff, but not to worry--it turned out perfect! Used egg beaters cuz I had a lot that needed to be used up--went up to 7 eggs instead of 6, though. Used turkey bacon; was OK, but I think I might try Hot pork sausage or regular bacon next time. Used baked potatoes for it since that's what I had on hand. It cooked perfectly---those that think it's runny are probably seeing the melted cheeses. Just made it for the family this time but would be very proud to serve it at a potluck or to company! I took another reviewers advice and froze individual portions since school is about to start, it will make a quick easy breakfast for the kids (and me)!
