Pina Colada Rum Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2008
I altered this recipe a little... using Pineapple Rum instead, and leaving out the coconut. Great! Also, instead of mixing rum into the icing, I put some in a spray bottle and sprayed it on the cake after I frosted it. Gave it an all-over pineappley taste. will make again!

Superfast Asparagus

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
I used Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning, and just sprinkled some on, didn't bother measuring out a teaspoon. was a great way to cook up a fast vegetable, and asparagus is popular in our house so will make it that was again.

Garlic-Lemon Double Stuffed Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2013
that was a winner. followed directions exactly, though did cut it down for two people. needed 33-35 min in the oven but was cooked just wonderfully. too much breading mixture, though. would think about making less.

Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2013
this was great! I whipped this up to accompany grilled garlic-soy salmon and white rice, and it went perfectly! Hubby commented on it twice, so will definitely add it to the normal ways I prepare asparagus!

Turkey Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
used unsalted butter instead of margarine. used a mixture of 1 cup 1% milk and 1 cup heavy whipping cream instead of half-and-half. used 2/3 cup green onions. used just under a cup of wild rice. used 1/2 cup flour instead of 3/4. used 1/4 tsp pepper instead of 1/8 tsp. added about 8 chopped baby carrots in with the onions and rice at the beginning. turned out delicious; my husband said it was the best soup I've made. next time would add more pepper (or perhaps the wild rice seasoning mix).

Spinach Muenster Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
I used 3 eggs, a 6oz bag of fresh spinach that I sauted and drained, and no salt, but otherwise followed directions. Wasn't done at 35, so put it back in for 10 minutes. It was barely set, next time I'd put it in longer anyway. It was great tho, both my husband and I enjoyed it greatly.

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2011
I'm giving these a 5 because they would have been better if I hadn't messed them up. It was Easter, so I was in the kitchen all day, cooking up a storm. When I pulled the dough out of the bread machine, I had intended to follow another user's suggestion and do cloverleaf rolls - 3 balls in each of 12 muffin cups. But, I wasn't thinking. I made 36 balls, and promptly put them in a bowl to rise for an hour. They rose into one another and formed a giant ball of dough once again. So, I made 36 news balls, plopped them into muffin cups, and baked, about 13 minutes. The balls melded into one another and I had regular rolls. UPDATE: I made them correctly and they were FANTASTIC! everyone loved them and they rose wonderfully! I did have them covered with a towel for 2-2 1/2 hours instead of one (had to wait for that turkey to finish in the oven), but still fabulous.

Banana Trifle

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2014
to save time I used 8 oz cool whip instead of whipping my own cream. I sliced 3 bananas and layered them on the pudding rather than mixing it in. I used 13 oz of pound cake because that's the size I had. It was fantastic. Next time I'd crumble the cookies instead of crushing them... I think they were too fine this time.

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake II

Reviewed: May 27, 2012
followed this exactly, except there's no way I could get 3c of pineapple in there - I put about 1/2 a pineapple down and moved on. I didn't have a 9" pan so I used an 8"... wouldn't do that again! the mix at the bottom came up the side and bubbled over, causing smoking and requiring me to clean the oven. All that aside, the end product was fabulous. It was ready to pull out after 45 minutes and was just delicious.

Roasted Garlic Lemon Broccoli

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2013
this was a hit! I used 3 broccoli heads instead of 2 but kept the rest of the ingredients the same. Mine needed 20 minutes but turned out great. will definitely add to the rotation when lemons are in season!

Pesto Chicken Florentine

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2013
This took about 45 minutes, but I think I could get it down to 35 if I started the pasta sooner. I used jarred alfredo instead of mix, rotini instead of penne, extra pesto, and extra garlic. I also threw some Tony's Creole spices on the chicken. I couldn't get enough - I really enjoyed it. Hubby thought it was pretty good. Maybe I'd add red peppers and mushrooms next time as well. *remember to drain the chicken/spinach pan so you don't water-down your sauce!

Firecracker Grilled Alaska Salmon

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2014
used safflower oil instead of peanut, and onion powder instead of green onions. it wound up marinating about 30 hours, but was absolutely amazing! we both loved it and can't wait to serve it for others.

Cherry Pie II

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
this turned out remarkably well. Easily the best fruit pie I've made yet! My husband even said it was Thanksgiving-quality, and that means a lot to me, if not to you as well. I modified the flour to 1/4 cup and used Rainier cherries instead of sour cherries. I did have to mash about half of them to get enough juice to mix with the dry ingredients. I used the 9" frozen Pillsbury crust, since they're sold in packages of two.

Shirred Eggs

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
I'm putting this for a 5 as to not negatively affect the overall rating, but I don't think it was a 5. But, I had to substitute a lot of it - including sour cream for heavy cream, mozzarella for parmesan, and onion powder for fresh chives. I also had to bake for close to 20 minutes. This worked out, and my husband liked it a lot. I, however, thought it was strange. But, I don't like runny yolks, so that could be the answer. The mozzarella and sour cream were fine subs - the onion powder I'd skip in favor of fresh chives next time.

Chicken Puffs

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2011
I used a pound of chicken tenders, chunking them before cooking (in a little olive oil and the garlic. couldn't find the onion so used onion powder). I used whipped chive cream cheese, no butter, and 3 tbsp green onion in the mix. I only needed 2 cans of dough (8 rectangles), but at 350 they took 20 minutes. My husband and I both loved them and I look forward to having the leftovers!

Amaretto Divine

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2009
I couldn't not give this five stars. I made it for my husband's birthday (amaretto is his favorite). I used International Delights Liquid non-dairy amaretto flavor (you can go on their website and find out which stores carry it... I had to go across town), Disaronno amaretto, and cool whip lite. I omitted nuts and heath bars. As per others' suggestions, I put wax paper down in my pans and the cakes came out perfectly (about 21-22 minutes for me). I used two Hershey's bars, but struggled to get all of the drizzle on there, there was so much!! I also used two 8oz tubs of cool whip... one and a half would have been fine (I frosted sides too). Everyone thought I bought it from a bakery when they looked at it, and were in love with the flavor. Worked out so well!!! Update: I've been using this recipe for 4 years now, as cakes and cupcakes, changing out various liqueurs, creamers, and puddings. I just tried Kahlua Cinnamon Spice with Cinnamon Vanilla creamer, which resulted in a little drier of a cake than I'd have hoped for - maybe I should have changed the yellow cake base this time.

Garlic Alfredo Tilapia

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2011
halved the recipe, but otherwise followed exactly (maybe a little heavy on the cajun, I didn't measure that part). My husband said it was the best meal I've made in months (served with white rice, crescent rolls, and onion green beans). I also found it delicious and look forward to making it again.

Creme de Menthe Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2012
these went over fantastically! I made the brownies the night before to cut prep time on Thanksgiving, then added the two layers of topping the next day. I suggest you refrigerate them again after the chocolate layer because they're difficult to cut unless they're fairly hard.

Banana Loaf

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2013
this was magic. The only change I made was going half brown sugar and half white sugar. This bread rose nicely and was just fantastic. My husband took some to work and his coworkers loved it, too. I've tried a few banana bred recipes from this site now, but this is the one I'll keep!

Superb Sauteed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2013
I took quite a few liberties with this recipe, the main ones being that I used balsamic vinegar instead of red wine, and garlic powder and salt instead of garlic salt. Beyond that, I quartered the amount of mushrooms but made a third of the cooking substance. worked out well and we loved it.
