Red Hot Baked Apples

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2008
Awesome! These were soooo good. I used Jonamacs and these tasted just like my favorite treat(cinnamon candy apples) from the state fair. The idea to leave the bottom when coring was great as it kept everything where it was supposed to be. Even if you don't like red hots you really should try them because they totally make these special. AND they are fat free. :)

Whole Egg Mayonnaise

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2010
Better than Hellmans! I have not bought mayonnaise since I first made this 3 months ago and I will probably never buy mayo again. I make a half batch at a time and use my immersion blender. With the immersion blender I find it is not necessary to drizzle the oil in slowly and do it a quarter of a cup at a time instead. It takes just a few minutes and it is sooooo much better than the stuff in the jar. Even my daughter who swears she hates mayonnaise loves this!!!!

Lazy Daisy Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2008
I have been looking for this cake recipe for years. It is similar to the one in an old Fanny Farmer cookbook I had but somewhere along the way the page went missing. This is a family favorite and the only thing I do different is to add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts to the topping mixture. For those that don't like coconut you can probably replace it chopped walnuts or pecans.

Kelsey's Favorite Stuffed Green Peppers

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2008
Great filling for zucchini too!!! I made 1/2 times the filling ingredients called for so I could have extras to freeze. I ended up with 8 pepper halves and 4 Zucchini halves. All were very generously filled. Like others here I did need to spice it up a little so used about a tbl of Penzeys sandwich sprinkle(which goes with EVERYTHING). I did not parboil the peppers but I did slightly undercook my rice(brown)and I added a can of diced tomatoes with most of the liquid. Baked for 30 minutes under foil then I removed the foil topped with the cheese and baked another 15 minutes. Perfect. Even my very picky daughter liked the filled peppers but she LOVED the zucchini. I liked the pepper verison better myself. And as a bonus I have dinner in the freezer for another night.

Kerri's Holiday Punch

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2011
Used store brand cranberry soda for half of the lemon lime as suggested by others. Served with the Southern Comfort on the side. It was a bit tart plain but surprising smoother after adding the alcohol. Would have been great with raspberry sherbet floating on top.

Moussaka

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
Delicious. I bought a huge box of eggplant from the farmers market for a rediculously low price(about 40 pounds for $10). I pickled half of it, like my Italian grandmother used to, and have been looking for recipes for the rest. We are going around the world with eggplant recipes. I have made a lovely eggplant parm(Italy), a wonderful eggplant curry(Indian) and last night this Greek Moussaka. I think this is my favorite so far. After sweating the eggplant I very very lightly applied some olive oil and put the slices on the grill. This not only saved me a pan but gave the eggplant a wonderful flavor. There is just something about grilled eggplant that is just soooo good. I also used Penzeys greek seasoning instead of the fines herbes and parsley and put a layer of zucchini under the bechemel. Other than that I left the recipe as it was written. It was a lot of prep but soooo worth it. I will definately be making this again but tonight we are off to France for Ratatoulli.

Light Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2010
In an effort to make these even lighter, I stuck to the basic recipe guidlines but with substitutions. I subbed the sugar with a little agave and splenda for the white sugar. Diabetisweet brown sugar substitute(the best sugar sub I have ever had by far!) for the brown sugar. I used half white flour and half low carb flour and replaced half the butter and all the water with applesauce. I also used whole egg and I doubled the recipe. These were by far some of the best cookies I have ever had, lower carb, low fat or not! Even my son who will only eat my higher fat, full carb foods LOVED them. He took one bite and said "Mom if these are one of your healthy recipes I highly commend you!" :)

To Die For Garlic Feta Pate

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
Wow was this good! I only changed it slightly to reduce the fat content. I reduced the butter by 2 tbs and used low fat cream cheese and fat free feta. Even my picky 18 y/o daughter loved it. Of course I didn't tell her there were anchovies it. It is very garlicky though. I am fine with that but some my not be.

New York Cheesecake III

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
Absolutely the best cheesecake ever. I have never had a cheesecake that didnt crack before, no matter what method I used, until this one. No cracks, perfect smooth top. The only alteration I made was to add about a teaspoon and a half of good vanilla and about the same of fresh lemon juice. I could not have asked for a better recipe. This will be the only cheescake I make from now on. Just a couple notes - For those of you that are having problems with it not setting are you using a 10 inch springform pan? If you are using a smaller pan you are definately going to have to increase your baking time. Also, remember to never mix this at a high speed and tap the pan on the counter several times after adding the batter to remove the air bubbles or it will rise and crack.

Texas Sheet Cake V

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
Really really good!!! I upped the recipe to 52 servings so it would fill the half sheet pan I have. I made this for a smallish graduation party of about 20 people and it was almost totally devoured. Even my daughter who says she hates cake loved it and said I could make this any time I want. The only things I did different were to increase the cocoa slightly and I added a teaspoon or 2 of good vanilla. Oh, and I left out the nuts. I am known as the cake lady by a lot of people and this one is definately going in to my aresenal.

Most Excellent Sandwich

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2012
Loved this! Adjusted to what I had on hand but basically the same recipe. I used a thick slice of homemade potato bread and sprinkled a little garlic salt on the tomatoes. Used a clover, cabbage, fennel sprout mix. Baked until bubbly and oh so good!

Gypsy Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2011
Loved loved loved this recipe. I did add just a scant teaspoon of tamarind paste and it totally put it over the top. Second time added some regular potatoes as well per my daughters request. It was still very good but I prefer without.

Greek Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2010
Excellent - Made as written except I added marinated artichoke hearts instead of the cucumber simply because that's what I had. Great substitution but next time (and there will be a next time) I will use both the cucumber and the artichoke hearts. The dressing was absolutely perfect the way it's written and just enough to keep everything slightly wet but not soggy if you know what I mean. I am heading to the kitchen now to eat the leftovers for dinner on this sweltering hot July day!!!!

Ricotta Gnocchi

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2010
These were amazing! I did double everything except the flour(I used 3/4 of a cup) and I used a low carb flour instead. They still rolled out easily on a silicone mat with a little extra of the Carbalose flour. I also used just a few passes on a grater of fresh nutmeg. I stuck them in the freezer while I made the sauce (which is exactly the same my own marinara recipe). I did not have any problem with them falling apart but mine were cold when I dropped them into the the barely boiling water. I did them in 3 batches, I did not stir them and just scooped them out and into a strainer when done. They started to float at about 1 1/2 mins but they were too soft. I left them in for exactly 3 minutes and they were perfect. They were not heavy at all. It took me about 45 minutes from start to finish and it was the 1st time I ever made them. The only problem is they were sooo good that my son and I ate most of the double batch in one meal!!!

Hot Water Pie Crust II

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2013
I was very hesitant to try this crust because it uses hot water but I decided to take a chance because the reviews were so positive. I did make it in my food processor. Processed the wet ingredients till creamy, dumped the dry ingredients on top and pulsed about 5 times. I then wrapped and put it in the fridge while I prepared the apple pie filling. I was having a hard time rolling it and I ended up re-rolling it between plastic wrap. It was very easy this way but I was sure I had ruined it by handling it too much. I was shocked how tender and flaky it was when I had a slice later. The full recipe was enough for a ten inch deep dish and 1 regular single pie crust. I don't think I will ever make a cold water pie crust again.

Seven-Minute Pudding

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2012
Awesome, easy and definately a keeper. I used my stick blender to mix everything up and again after cooking. I halved the butter and added fresh vanilla bean. Followed the cooking directions exactly. Lovely rich almost custardy taste. I will never use another box of store bought pudding again.
