Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2012
I have made this twice now and both times it was a big hit. I did not use black olives or the chiles in tomatoes. I also used a Mexican blend of shredded cheese instead of Colby, 16 oz total, and black beans instead of refried. I cooked the beef, drained any fat, added the onions, (1 time I omitted the garlic-didn't have any), cooked for 10 minutes. Then I added the chiles, 1 packet of taco mix, and 20 oz of Southwestern style salsa. I simmered for 15 minutes. I then put it together following a tip by another reviewer: crush the black beans and spread on tortilla. I layered starting with beef mixture, then cheese, then tortilla with beans (beans face down), and repeated. I ended the pie with a tortilla which I smothered with enchilada sauce and then the remaining shredded cheese. I used all mild ingredients. I served it with a side of sour cream. good stuff!!!!

After-Thanksgiving Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2006
A good recipe. Not exactly sure how much stock I began with...I had a huge stock pot full to begin with, but ended up with a huge dutch oven full of soup with leftover stock to freeze... I did add one large clove of crushed GARLIC and two BAY LEAVES to the stock. I cut the butter WAY down to about 3 tablespoons, dissolved 2 bouillion cubes in a cup of water and added it with the flour, to the onion/carrot/celery mixture; used 1/2 of a very large onion; used only 1 cup of fat free half and half; I did add a bag of frozen vegetables, a small container of leftover STUFFING, (broken up), and used pastina instead of rice; did not include salt in my soup. Came out exceptionally well. My husband loved getting the tidbits of stuffing in his soup...and raved about the broth.

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2007
very fast and easy. I had a ready made crust that was a bit bigger than the 9" the recipe called for (a new product;it said it had two extra servings and is by Keebler)...so I used a whole cup of pumpkin. I took the pie out of the oven when it was done, and it immediately started to crack. I put it right back in to cool, left it for 2 hours, and the cracks healed. Should have listened to other reviewer. Very delicious.

Three Berry Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2008
This pie was a big hit at my recent cookout. I used all fresh fruit and organic cane sugar. I did increase the corn starch to 1/4 cup because I added 2 cups of blackberries to the recipe and I knew there would more juice because of it. It was just a little runny, I had no problem plating this pie. The combination of sweet and tart berries scoop of vanilla low fat ice cream MADE it. A beautiful presentation, easy to make and everyone loved it. thank you.

Sweet Potato Pie I

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
This was an unexpected delight! The recipe was easy and with a dollop of whipped cream, it was perfect. I found that it had a nice texture and held its shape on the plate. I made two for two separate homes for Thanksgiving and each reported that there wasn't a crumb left! Thanks

Salsafied Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
Yum! I needed a quick idea for some left-over chicken..this was fast and delicious. I used a "Santa Fe" mild salsa and coated the chicken with half a package of taco seasoning as another reviewer suggested; (an excellent touch by the way). I added a can of corn and topped it with shredded mozzarella and baby swiss cheese. My husband hummed with every bite. Thank you!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
I've made this recipe twice. I always modify recipes to make them a little healthier so both times I used a 50/50 blend of Splenda and sugar instead of 100% sugar. I also cut the butter in the batter to 3 Tablespoons and added 2 1/3 Tablespoons of unsweetened applesauce. The last time I made it I added a teaspoon of vanilla to the batter and 3/4 cup finely chopped nuts to the streusel. Both times I made this it was moist and very delicious.

Blackened Tuna Steaks with Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
I grilled this for a barbecue and followed the recipe exactly. I made sure to finely chop all of the salsa ingredients. My entire family loved it! The mango was so good and offset the zing you get from the cayenne. Even the guests that weren't typically big seafood eaters went after this dish. Thanks for the recipe!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
This is a great recipe. I was looking for the old-fashioned crisp like mom makes and this is it! I've made it twice now; the first time exactly as the recipe's writtten, and the second time I added an extra 1/2 cup of oats, (btw, both times I used regular oats-quick cooking wasn't necessary). Anyway, I got absolutely rave reviews from my co-workers both times. I plan on making this for Thanksgiving. I've since made this several times. I've used quick cooking as well as regular oats. I like the texture of the crumble with the regular oats much better. Also, I've found that adding the melted butter a little at a time, and stirring intermittedly helps the butter to more evenly dispense. I can't tell you the raves I get over this.

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
I made this for my family and passed the recipe along to a friend. Both of us got rave reviews from our families. The crust was a beautiful light brown and was so good. I had never made an apple pie where you pour a sugar syrup over the top, so I was hopeful but not sure. From now on, this is the apple pie that I will make for every day and for holidays. Thank you!

PHILADELPHIA 'Fruit Smoothie' No-Bake Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2010
I made this in store bought mini graham cracker crusts. I used 3 cups of fresh fruit, (blueberries and strawberries), added a teaspoon of vanilla, and halved the other ingredients. except I used 1/2 cup sugar. When I added the fruit I didn't beat them in, rather folded them in. I liked the fresh fruit, and the store bought mini crusts prevented any problem with cutting. When I make this again, I will use the whole 8 oz of whipped topping. It was a little dense. But delicious.

Homemade Tomato Sauce I

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2010
I used fresh tomatoes and basil from the garden and red cooking wine in my version. I did let it thicken as I was making sloppy joes for my husband. Very tasty. Very simple.

Hazelnut Crunchers

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2010
Great cookie! Easy recipe. I used light brown sugar bc it was all I had and I knew it wouldn't make much difference. They came out crunchy and very tasty. As always I used parchment paper and non stick spray. I will definitely be making these again.

Kathy's Delicious Italian Pasta Salad

Reviewed: May 29, 2011
Very good! I used tri colored rotini, 18 oz. I followed another person's suggestion and added a whole jar of marinated artichoke hearts..good tip. I chopped them and used the marinade with 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar and 1/4 cup light tasting olive oil as suggested. I used 2 cloves of garlic and abt 3 tbls chopped onions. I omitted black olives and roasted peppers. I used 1/2 chopped gr. pepper and 1/2 chop. orange pepper, with 1/2 cup chop. banana pepper. Nice coloring for summer. Instead of all mozzarella, I used half provolone, half mozzarella. In addition to the salami, I added 1/4 cup finely chopped pepperoni. My husband gobbled this up and wanted more right away! The flavors were excellent. Again, I amended to our taste and am so glad for the artichoke and dressing tip.

Italian Cookies II

Reviewed: May 10, 2009
These cookies resemble an Italian cookie my mom makes..but these are better. I've made them twice now. They are easy to make, moist, and are a big hit. I separated the frosting into small batches and colored each batch a spring time color. I frosted them very lightly so as not to overpower this lightly flavored cookie. People liked them frosted and unfrosted, by the way. I always use parchment paper lightly sprayed with Pam when baking cookies. No pan clean-up! My Italian mom asked for the recipe..It's definitely a keeper.

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2006
I served this for dessert on Christmas Eve. It was a huge hit! My cake layers were a bit too crumbly...I think I should've baked them for 15-17 minutes...I baked for 20 and they were slightly overcooked. No one noticed but me. My Italian relatives loved this. I will absolutely make this again.

Sophie's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2014
I followed the recipe except that I decreased the fat by using only 1/2 cup of oil and adding 1/2 cup of applesauce. The cinnamon adds a great flavor. It was so moist. I put about 2/3 cup finely chopped pecans in mine. I used medium sized paper loaf pans that I had so it made 5 loaves. Delicious!!! thank you.
