Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2010
Great recipe, but my family liked it much better with corn tortillas. The flour tortillas just seem gummy compared to the corn, and the corn adds a great flavor dimension. Followed other's suggestions and this is a winner!

Flan Mexicano (Mexican Flan)

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2011
I liked the orange flavor and will use it in a recipe that I have used for years with more success. I have never seen cornstarch in any other flan recipe. Mine came out more like plain egg custard (admittedly it had a lovely orange flavor). Also, my recipe calls for a little water in the sugar to make the caramel. My sugar was nearly burned before it was fully disolved.

Key Lime Pie IV

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
My experience making this recipe turned into an adventure. I thought that I had a reasonable expectation that I would be able to get 8 tablespoons of juice out of 30 key limes. I prefer Persian limes, believe me. Key limes are a headache. After 40 minutes of cutting, seeding and prodding all the juice I could out of the critters, I only had 4 tablespoons of juice. I had no other source of juice in the house, and time wouldn't permit a trip to the store. So! I decided that I would use some lemon drink powder and water to make up the difference. Well, of course, the water foiled the effect of the condensed milk and juice combination, yielding a watery filling. I decided to add 4 egg yolks, and baked it for about 40 minutes at 350. The pie was just great! Since it was for company, it was a breath holding experience, but turned out nicely. Don't know that I would recommend doing this exactly, but just thought I'd share.

Chocolate Pudding Cake II

My family is crazy about this pudding cake. Better than the ones I remember from the 50's. I double the recipe and use a 9"x 13" pan. Thanks INDIT!

Homemade Pudding

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2011
Great recipe! I didn't have any powdered milk, and substituted with non-dairy coffee creamer. Fabulous! I made my own chocolate pudding mix by adding 1 cup of cocoa. It has a bold chocolate flavor. Some might prefer a milder 3/4 cup, and using dutched cocoa would probably yield a mellower chocolate. I have been completely disappointed in boxed puddings of late. Either my taste buds have changed or the formula has changed. It's just not the same stuff I remember as a kid. This recipe brings it all back. Thanks!

Lentils and Rice with Fried Onions (Mujadarrah)

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2011
This recipe is so much better than the ingredients might lead you to think it might be. Deffinitely more than the sum of its parts. I don't change a thing ... and that's saying something!

Peanut Butter Bars I

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2010
Really great cookie bar. The pan was gone in one day in our 7 person household. I made the graham cracker mixture entirely in the food processor and melted the chocolate/peanut butter mixuture in the microwave so my prep time was less than 10 minutes. I accidently bought milk chocolate chips. It turned out to be a happy accident, since I'm sure it produced a more classic peanut butter cup flavor. The only problem was getting the bars to come out of the pan. Thinking about setting them on a heating pad for a few minutes to warm just the bottom long enough to allow them to release from the pan, the next time I make them... and there will be a next time!

Buffy's Refried Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2010
I followed the advice of another and added butter instead of lard. This yielded terrific beans just like those in our favorite restaurant. Great!

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
Best I've ever had. I use an ice cream scoop to place batter into muffin tins sprayed with no-stick spray. No cutting is cool!

Buffalo Style Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
This was a crowd pleaser! I used homemade ranch dressing, and I'm sure that made a significant difference in the end result. Bottled ranch is just a different critter from the scratch version. I made a quick crust in my food processor which produced a wonderful crunchy crust. This will be a regular addition to our family meal line up.

Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
That's the stuff! I've been looking for this flavor for years. Canned sauce just doesn't cut it. And it's so easy! I also added some peanut butter... that's how it's done where I grew up in California. Thanks!

Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2009
That's the stuff! After years of looking for the kind of enchilada sauce I grew up with, this is it! I do add about 2 tablespoons of peanut butter.. it's traditional in California. Thanks!
