Taco Lasagna

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
I used flour 10 inch tortillas and two bags of morning stars veggie crumbles instead of beef as I am a vegetarian. This was a bit spicy for me and my toddler, maybe because of the meat substitute having less fat than beef? It wasn't crazy spicy, but I will cut the cayenne and chili pepper in half next time. Also, had a bag of Cheddar Jack in the fridge- so convenient and only use the 2 cups for everything. Hubby LOVED this. I froze half of the casserole and think it will reheat nicely.

Quick Black Forest Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
The recipe was a little vague, but I wound up with a 5 star cake for my daughter's 2nd birthday party. I made a huge layer cake- 2 9X13 cakes. In each cake I used 1 devils's food mix (dry mix plus I added 1/2 cup oil and 1 cup water from box directions) ,3 eggs, 1 pouch non-instant pudding (not prepared), 1 can cherries, reduced to 1/2 cup MINI choc chips, reduced to half tbs almond extract. I used 1 box of instant pudding (prepared) for the filling between the layers. I made all this the night before and layered, wrapped in plastic wrap and refrigerated. I did not use the choc glaze. I used whipping cream and some conf sugar with dash of vanilla for topping. I put the rest of the bag of mini choc chips up the sides of the cakes. I used some reserved cherries for garnish. Next time I will get about 12 fresh cherries for garnish instead. This was SOOO good and almost every guest took home seconds. Thanks for the recipe!

Tiramisu II

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2013
Wow! This was my first attempt at a tiramisu and I don't need to ever search for another recipe! I read through many of the reviews and did make some tweaks based on what I had read. Most notably: 1)Make 48 hours ahead. 2)Double the rum and coffee. 3)Use your kitchenaid to mix the yolks, sugar, and then milk. Pour into bowl and set over pot (as a double boiler). STIR CONSTANTLY and even a few times while chilling. I wound up being on the stovetop for 12 minutes. Mine never reached a boil, but I was looking for the change in color and consistency as noted in reviews. It also firms a bit more in the fridge. I used the kitchen aid to beat the ROOM TEMP marscapone into the chilled yolk mixture. 4)My store did not have the soft lady fingers so I wound up using the cookie like 'hard' version, Bellino Savioardi. I used about one and a half 7 ounce packages. I put them under the liquor/coffee mixture and rolled a few times then pulled out. Did not let get soggy, and after the 48 hours they were all soft and pleasing. I will ONLY use the hard lady fingers now! 5) I used a 10 inch spring form pan, and I added about a tbsp of sugar to the heavy cream. THANKS SO MUCH! AWESOME RECIPE! Update: Made it again 2 weeks later for Christmas Eve and came out the same- wonderful recipe! Everyone raved and there was none left.

Vegetarian Kale Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
Whoa! Crazy amount of salt because of the boullion cubes. Next time I will use regular cartons of veggie broth. Aside from that, wonderfully hardy and delicious soup! Makes a ton, I froze half, hopefully it wil reheat well.

Connie's Zucchini "Crab" Cakes

Reviewed: May 24, 2013
These were yummy. I only used 1 tbsp of oil, and used a brush to coat the whole pan with it, and it was just enough. I was prepared to add another tbsp of oil after flipping but it didn't need it and I was glad because I'm watching my calories.

Reviewed: May 6, 2011
These are good to have in the freezer, ready to go. I only used 3 cans of beans and it's enough. Also used white rice. It's good.

Spiced Slow Cooker Applesauce

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
My first time making applesauce! I have a ton of apples, so I doubled evrything except I left the brown sugar at 2/3 cup. It was still quite sweet. So delicious! Everyone loves and I made 3 times so far (apple picking season).

Banana Praline Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
I put these in mini muffin tins. Served at Xmas brunch and hubby's side liked them. Brought to my side of family the next day and they didn't like them. I guess they weren't expecting the pancake batter. I think that they might have come out different because i used mini muffins so maybe the dollop of sour cream was too small. Still a good recipe.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
Delicious- I am no stranger to combining sweet potatoes and black beans (I make a quesidilla with monteray jack cheese and green onions) so I knew my family would love this. Changes- black beans, accidentally forgot the chili powder, and started with 1/2 cup of water then eyeballed it to a good consistency which was almost 1 cup water total. I bought 2 pkgs of tortillas (16 total) and wound up making 15 burritos. I froze half as reviewers have said they reheat good.

Shredded Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
I gave 5 stars because if I had used bacon I know it would have been out of this world. I am a vegetarian though, so I omitted the bacon. It was good for a regular dinner but no wow factor (I served for Thanksgiving).

Bourbon Balls II

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2013
I did not have light corn syrup so used dark instead. The amount of liquor in the recipe is fine! They taste a lot like bourbon- I'd be scared to double it. My co-workers all loved this, except for one woman who just doesn't like bourbon. I also put the wafers into my food processor. About one-third of a box of nilla gave me the cup of crumbs. Also, I only got 30 balls and used a teaspoon for making them. Great recipe!

Sean's Falafel and Cucumber Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2013
This was delicious. I did change some things just because I am watching my calories. My changes included: omitted salt, reduced breadcrumbs to 1/2 cup, and baked the patties at 375-400 degrees for 10 minutes on each side. I also made smaller patties, this recipe yielded 16 smaller patties. For the sauce I used Hellman's Light Mayo. I made everything the night before, then kept in fridge until ready to bake next day. The sauce was beautiful, and probably benefited from making a day ahead. Next time, and there WILL be a next time, I will make a double batch and freeze half.

Gnocchi in Fontina Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2011
This was ok. I only used 4 tbsp butter and skim milk. It looked to thick so I added some more milk. It was nice and creamy on the stovetop , but my husband was late and by the time we ate the sauce was gloppy.

Tofu Parmigiana

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
UPDATED to from 4 stars to 5 as I have made this dish for family dinners at least 20 times. This was easy to make and took a little less than the time stated which is great. I double the tofu. I used an egg instead of water and served over angel hair pasta with veggies on the side. Will make like once a month! Thanks!

Wow! I don't think I ever used honey with sweet potatoes before. It is divine! I mashed everything together and quadrupled the recipe. Delish!

Baked Omelet

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
I made for Christmas brunch this year and everyone loved it! I made one mushroom (1 package presliced) and one with ham. People especially liked the mushroom one. I think that people thought more work went into it than actually did. It was EASY and it was made before guests arrived so I wasn't busy prepping, it was in the oven already.
