Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: May 18, 2010
A family favorite. I use (like many others) canned coconut milk instead of 1/2 and 1/2 as I like coconut flavor. A lot. I also used cornstarch instead of flour, makes a very creamy custard.

Lemonade Cake III

Reviewed: May 18, 2010
Easy, easy, easy! Perfect to throw together on a work night or when you have surprise guests on the way. Takes no time at all and is very forgiving.

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2008
Really easy and really tasty. I used home made crust which put the pie over the top! I used 2/3 cup of the "double strength" concentrate and zest from 2 regular limes. 2 cans of condensed milk was perfect for an 8" pie. I baked it 8 minutes (as others suggested), saw the tiny bubbles and took it right out. Perfect! I look forward to another reason to make this pie--I loved "sampling" the filling as I tweaked the flavor. Thanks for the recipe!

The Best Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2008
I increased the cooking time for the crust by about 5 min, and increased the lemon juice to nearly 3/4 cup. Needless to say, this yielded a VERY tart lemon bar! I really like lemon, so it was no problem. Next time, I'll probably decrease the amount of juice. The crust was very nice, and held up well--the custard didn't sink in at all.

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2008
My first and last recipe for rice pudding! My sweetie is a fan of Kozy Shack, and he even liked it! I left out the raisins and sprinkled a dash of cinnamon before serving. I liked it better warm, while he liked it more the next day, cold. What a great way to use up that leftover rice. Thanks!

Cherry Pie III

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2008
Once again, allrecipes.com and the contributors made me look like a real cook! I used canned cherry pie filling and 1 cup of fresh blueberries. The almond extract was the perfect addition to pull the flavors together and mellow the tartness of the cherries. I used a different crust recipe and did the lattice top. It passed the mother-in-law test with flying colors. Thanks!

Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2007
I braised the meat in garlic powder, 1/4 cup of flour, and salt and pepper as previous reviewers suggested. I cooked the meat in beef broth, and added 3 T of cornstarch at the end. It cooked for 1 1/2 hours and was fall-apart tender! I served it to my in-laws, who are picky eaters and they loved it. Thanks!

Scottish Oat Scones

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2007
I substituted orange juice for the milk in this recipe, and "Craisins" for the currants. Although the OJ flavor was a little too subtle, overall the scones were moist and delicious. Everyone really enjoyed them, including my MIL who is a wonderful cook and has a-um-particular palate. Thanks for the recipe!

Pumpkin Maple Pie Supreme

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
Everyone in my family had seconds of this pie on Thanksgiving! I cut down the sugar and used a little less cream (like other reviewers suggested) and used just a touch more ginger. It came out beautifully! Not over-sweet like the usual pumpkin pies. It is a great recipe--thanks so much!

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2007
My first apple pie, and it was fantastic! I used golden delicious apples, which held up well and tasted great. I used the recipe for "Best Ever Pie Crust" found on this site. I doubled the caramel mix (with the vanilla as others suggested) which was a mistake--the liquid boiled over into the cookie sheet I'd placed the pie pan in! I also added cinnamon and clove, as others again suggested. Next time I'll use the suggested amount of sauce, and I'll definitely use the cinnamon and cloves. Very, very good recipe!

My first pie crust, and it was great! I used 1/2 cup butter flavored shortening, and 1/2 cup of butter. It was flaky and delicious! Thanks for the recipe!

Marie's Chicken Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
I used chicken breasts and olive oil instead of butter. They were indeed juicy and moist, but the coating was a little bland for our tastebuds. I think I'll try the Italian dressing dip that another reviewer suggested. Thanks for the recipe!
