Beef Fajitas

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2001
This is a great way to s-t-r-e-t-c-h a pound of steak, and the salsa marinade makes it very tender. It made enough for 8 large fajitas, with filling left over for about 2 more.

Buttermilk Chocolate Cake with Fudge Icing

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2001
The first few times I made this we thought it was great, but then we realized it had a noticeable "eggy" flavor. I am going to give it one more try substituting cool water for the boiling water--I am afraid that is cooking the eggs! Anyone else had that problem? Note on 12/21/01--tried again, but still tasted eggy, won't make again

Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2001
This is our favorite salad recipe now--I take it to all potlucks and serve it to guests at home. It is unique with the cheese, nuts and fruits. The dressing makes enough for 2 large salads. I always cut back on the amount of oil in the dressing to about 1/3 cup.

Chinese Chicken Fried Rice I

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2001
Does not taste like the fried rice served in restaurants, but is a tasty dish, making a pound of chicken go a long way.

French Silk Chocolate Pie II

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2001
I used unsweetened chocolate squares, melted. A stand mixer helps, because of the long beating time. I remember my mother making this recipe when I was young, so was delighted to re-discover it. Actually serves 12, because a thin slice is all you need of this rich pie--unless you are a chocoholic like me :)

Fiesta Frittata Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2001
I substituted diced yellow squash for the black beans to suit my family's preference. Served it with homemade biscuits and applesauce for a yummy summer supper. Would definitely make again.

Classic Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2001
I have been looking for a mac and cheese recipe like this for a while--I usually make mine with a white sauce, and this one is MUCH better--my whole family loved it.

Rich Cream Cheese Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2001
This is absolutely fabulous. I made it for Thanksgiving and everyone raved about it. It will definitely be served on many special occasions in our home.

Coconut Cake II

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2001
Very rich and yummy. It definitely needs some salt--I added 1/2 tsp. to the flour mixture. I also made it with canned coconut milk for extra flavor. Coconut milk for the frosting too: add enough milk or cream to whatever is left from the can of coconut milk used in the cake to make one cup liquid.

Persimmon Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2001
This is an unusual dessert--people look at it with doubt in their eyes, but once they taste it they are converted. Of course, the butter sauce (follows) is a key part--cut the pudding into squares, place on individual serving plates with an ample drizzle of butter sauce. Two cups of persimmon pulp equals 5-6 persimmons, peeled and blended in a food processor. I eliminated the baking powder because we like a dense pudding, and the little bit of soda works just fine. If you do that, you must use buttermilk rather than plain milk. I cut the sugar back to 1-1/2 cups and upped the vanilla to 1 tsp. The baking time required for me was 1 hour and 10 minutes. This also freezes well, wrapped tightly in foil. Make it in season, enjoy all year. Butter sauce: Combine in saucepan: 1/2 cup butter, 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup cream, pinch of salt and 1-1/2 tsp. vanilla. Heat until sugar is melted and mixture is smooth.

Apricot Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2002
Definitely try this one--it is not a typical jello salad. I folded real whipped cream into it, rather than topping with Cool Whip. I took it to Christmas dinner at Grandma's, and not a spoonful was left. YUMMY.

Cream of Cauliflower Soup II

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2002
Wonderful recipe--easy, delicious. I like that it uses potatoes to thicken it. My family wanted seconds, and I will definitely put this on my make-again list.

Mexican Wedding Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2002
I prefer using confectioner's sugar rather than granulated, in the main recipe. Also, there are so few cookie recipes using almonds--why use pecans in this recipe? I toast the almonds whole in the toaster oven, then finely chop in blender. Melt-in-your-mouth good!

Apricot Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2004
Thank you, Karena, for this wonderful recipe. It is so unusual, I wasn't sure my family would like it, but everyone practically cheers when I serve it! The color and taste are special. I always double the recipe, and instead of peeling tomatoes, I just add a 28 oz. can of diced tomatoes. This freezes well too.

Apple Cake and Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2004
This is yummy. In addition, I use the rich butter sauce with several other recipes, notably Stephanie's persimmon pudding, found on this site.

Cinnamon Coffee Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2004
This is wonderful! As a previous reviewer wrote, it is excellent on the Black Magic cake (I made 2 today, one for us, one to give away). I make 1-1/2 times the frosting recipe to fill and frost the Black Magic Cake. Also, I add a teaspoon or 2 of boiling water to the dry coffee and cinnamon mixture to make them dissolve before adding them to the butter. This makes the appearance less gritty and more smooth.
