Sweet Potato Pie VII

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
Excellent! I made this instead of pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving and it turned out great. I made it according to the recipe but used Ideal sugar substitute (diabetic in the family) and added 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and nutmeg. I also baked the potatoes in the oven....left in foil to cool off and the skins literally fell off! Liked that the recipe gave a definitive measurement for the potatoes. This will be a keeper for next year.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2011
These were surprisingly good. I halved the recipe...and baked for 25 minutes in a 9X9 pan (next time I'll use an 8x8) Basically made the recipe as written, however I pureed the zucchini and used a mixture of oil and applesauce (mixed together in a 1/4 measuring cup. I put a little of that mixture in the food processor to help with the'd never know there was any zucchini in them. They tasted better the next day and are very moist....definitely a keeper!

Microwave Lemon Curd

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2011
This was very tasty and easy to make. I use a teaspoon+ to flavor my plain greek yogurt in the morning and the local grocery store stopped selling the brand I I was looking for an alternative. I made as directed but dropped the the recipe down to 5 servings ( checked and stirred every 30 seconds due to the smaller amt.) This is definitely a keeper! Thanks.

Lentil and Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
This actually surprised me how good this was and comparable to Carraba's....I used hot Italian chicken sausage from Trader Joe' gave it the same flavor...but I had more or less sausage "discs" vs..crumbled sausage. Will make with a different sausage next time...but either way unbelievabley tasty. My husband said "you can make this anytime"....and I will!

Shrimp Lemon Pepper Linguini

Reviewed: May 9, 2009
My husband and I really liked this...will make again as it had a lot of flavor. I didn't have any chicken broth in the house so used water instead and added a little cornstarch in the broth to thicken it up a bit. Also added cherry tomatoes and spinach for some veggies.

Blackberry Pie III

Reviewed: May 24, 2008
I've made this recipe quite a few times and it always turns out spectacular. The pie never seems to last more than a day..two at the most and it's only me and my husband. We can't stop eating it. I usually eyeball the ingredients(adding a little more flour if the berries are fresh and extra juicy) I also use Splenda instead of sugar. I've always used the Pillsbury pie dough (very easy) and the only thing I do differently is to wash the top with a little half and half and sprinkle with brown sugar (a little more that a tsp) over the top crust. I've also used a mixture of frozen berries (sometimes assorted) with fresh if I come up short on the amount needed to fill the pie tin. Always turns out perfect! This is a keeper!
