Coffee Icing

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
Excellent...except I wish I read the reviews before I made it. The consistency was too watery. I wound up needing to make more so I added more butter and a bit more sugar, but instead of adding liquid coffee I used some instant coffee with as little water as I could and added some unsweetened cocoa. I didn't melt the butter completely and I then refrigerated it for a little.

Broccoli Cheese Bake

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2011
Ok, so forgive me now but I don't measure and i use low fat versions of everything except the cheese. I took a bunch of reviews and mixed them up. So I used probably 1/2 the broccoli. I used probably 1/2 cup of margarine, melted it. I then added the onions and cooked them for 5 to 10 min till soft, then I added the flour to make a roux. Mix that up and added about 3/4 cup milk. Bring to a boil, and added cheddar cheese. Added about 1/4 tsp dry mustard and the salt. I skipped the egg because I realized I had a lot less time than I thought. (I didn't cook the broccoli first because I like it crispier than mushy) put it in a 8 x 8 pan and cooked till the broccoli was bright green. Sprinkled bread crumbs over top and cooked on 425 for another 5 to 10 minutes. Came out really good! Next time I'll use more broccoli.

Pecan Crusted Chocolate Truffle Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2008
Amazing! Made for the seder. Everyone loved it- it was a little too rich but still amazing. Made the crust the night before and left out at room temp. Didn't have brandy so substituted amaretto.

Leftover Chicken Croquettes

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2011
Really good the reviews first! Especially cookingcutie's. I sauteed onions and a stalk of celery in margarine. Added flour then milk and broth to make a roux. I used delicious smoked/BBQ chicken that my husband made last night. I served them over mashed potatos and chicken gravy. Soooo good!

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

So delicious! Think I went a little heavy on the cayenne (I don't measure ingredients). It was amazing!

Best Ever Jalapeno Poppers

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2011
It's funny because I don't follow recipes well, & I guess I've made these so many times already, I never noticed the double coating! Well anyway, I add about 1/4 tsp salt to the cream cheese mixture, and I only coat them in bread crumbs once. (also I use egg instead of milk). I bake them instead of frying them. I bake them on 400 for 20-30 min till golden. They are very time consuming to make. But my hubby begs for them at LEAST once a week! My whole family loves them. I also suggest wearing gloves to handle the jalepenos.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2012
Amazing! (with a few changes) I used twice the amount of the topping like a lot of others. I put juice of half a lemon over the apples, then mixed the cinnamon mixture over the apples before putting them in the pan. I also put 1/4 tsp salt into the crumb mixture. Didn't melt the butter either like the others- just softened so it was crummy. Oh yeah-I cut the water in half- might even cut in half again (1/4 cup) AMAZING!!!!
