Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
We use real whipped cream with a touch of maple syrup. I gave this recipe to my fiancee who works in a restaurant and it is the best selling item there. They make their own nut crust with walnuts and it's amazing.

Waffles I

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2008
I used 1 c buttermilk and 3/4 c milk. I then added 1/2 tsp baking soda and only used 2 tsp baking powder. It was wonderful. I definitely will make again.

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2013
I followed the recipe exactly. The pistachio is a little much, I'll cut down by 1/2 c next time. Up the cranberries just slightly cause I love them. When the biscotti came out of the oven the first time, I covered them with a cloth to cool them slower. Also, the dough it really sticky, so I used a bowl of water to periodically wet my fingers. The dough didn't rise or move at all, so make it as wide or thick as you prefer. I did not get 36 servings, I got 23, but my biscotti were admittedly thick and tall. I dipped in melted chocolate chips and had with my coffee for breakfast.

Best Fried Green Tomatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2008
Tomatoes really only need to be about 1/4 inch or less thick.. the thicker they are, the longer they take to cook, the more likely they are to have the corn breading burn. Corn breading very good. I have never had fried green tomatoes before, but my boyfriend from Mississippi has. He loved them, I loved them after I threw some ranch dressing on top. Great chance to use up some end crop of tomatoes before making the green tomato relish (on this website)

Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
I brine with water and extra spices and it turns out moist and amazing. 1 gallon of broth that I have to throw away later seems like a waste to me.

Veracruz-Style Red Snapper

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2013
I forgot the cayenne, but will put it in next time. I also only added 1 lime because I added a few extra tomatoes. I used 1/2tbs caper juice & 1/2 tbs green olive juice. Fabulous!

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2008
Great fluffy pie crust. very thick american pie crust, but sooo tasty. I do not have a pizza stone. I throw a little corn meal in a half rack cookie sheet and then prebake it for 10 minutes, otherwise it is mushy in the middle.

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2008
Yummy. Added random stuff on hand like dates and shredded coconut to make it yummy. Specifically only added half the sugar and then drizzled molasses on top. Fabulous!

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2013
I used 1/3 c less sugar in the cheesecake and 1/4 c less on the butter mixture. I might halve the butter next time because it seemed a little oily. Equally good hot or cold.

French Leek Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
Fabulous as is. I used heavy cream ecause I couldn't find light cream. I might use half and half next time. I used part cheddar and part comte cause I had some on hand. It was a touch runny somewhere less firm than a quiche, but oh so tasty. This goes down in legend. I will make again.

Chicken Piccata with Artichoke Hearts

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
I left out the italian seasoning since my fiancee make chicken piccata without it. Then I basically added ingredients till it tasted good. I didnt have white wine on hand, so I upped the amount of lemon juice and added a touch more broth. Also, I generally don't use corn starch, so I floured my chicken and slowly cooke dit in the pan. Once I added the broth, I brought the mixture up to a boil where it naturally thickened.

Taqueria Style Tacos - Carne Asada

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2008
Taste is wonderful. I left out the onions because I dont like them. I added a 1 pasilla and 2 ancho chiles to the roasted blended salsa. Really wonderful, added some spice and smokiness. Made a simple tomato, garlic and lime seasoning and threw it all together. Really just great. I found one batch feeds a lot. I saved half and am using it tomorrow. The carne asada seasoning is so good, I think I will make a big batch of the seasoning blend so I can throw this all together quickly later. Yum.

Cilantro-Lime Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
Very tasty. The flavor improves with age. At first taste (after 10 minutes) it was eh. But we loved it the next day for a dinner salad. Amazing on a southwestern salad.

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
I have made this stuffing 3 times now. I always cook it outside of the bird in a casserole dish. I, like other reviewers, add more broth and I also add wine. I generally add a few dashes more herbs and I usually leave out the turkey liver. I live near Willie Bird's turkey farm which makes an amazing cajun turkey sausage which is perfect and spicy for this dish. I add about 4 cloves of garlic to the recipe since I can't seem to cook without it. I also throw in a handful or tow extra of cranberries and it is amazing.

Roasted Beets and Sauteed Beet Greens

Reviewed: May 21, 2012
My fiancée is from Mississippi and he made basically this recipe from heart. We used two over large beets with greens grown in the garden. We sautéed the greens with no oil and one single slice of bacon. Honestly, I think one slice of bacon vs all the oil in this recipe might be better, plus it adds an amazing amount of flavor. It you want to be really authentic, use green chile vinegar. The vinegar really brings out the flavor just try it.

Absolutely Amazing Ahi

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2012
This is super tasty. I would suggest adding the soy and tasting as you go along. I like to add more sesame oil and eat fresh, leftovers aren't as good.

Florentine Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2008
Yummy bubbly dip. Spread on some good french bread. I added more garlic cause that's what I love. Add some jalapenos or red chili pepper flakes if you like it to have a great kick!

Steak Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
We had some steak, tomatoes, and lettuce and threw it together with the salad dressing from this recipe. Lacking red wine vinegar, we used apple cider ving. and it was wonderful. I liked it so much, I made it the next day for lunch. Definitely a keeper.
