Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2013
Giving it 4 because I used this recipe as my inspiration... I've been making double layer pumpkin cheesecake for years now and it's everyone's first holiday request. I double the ingredients, use canned pumpkin pie mix, and make a home made gingersnap crust. I use my spring form pan. Done this way, it looks professional. It's taller and thicker and when you slice it you can see the contrast between the dark crust, white layer and orange pumpkin on top... it's very pretty and just as delicious!

Lasagna Alfredo

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2013
4 stars because I tweaked it a little...add minced garlic... I put mine in the chicken mixture, def makes a difference. I also cut the mozz cheese back a little to lighten it calorie wise... I will keep this in my rotation. I also served it with red sauce on the side to drizzle on top, really good that way.

Sherry Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2013
This rocks! I did add my own touch, which is why I will give it 4 stars... first, I seasoned the chops very well with salt and pepper. I seared them until good and brown in EVOO/butter. Then I tossed in the apples and some thinly sliced onion. I sprinkled the brown sugar and cinnamon on top and splashed the sherry over the whole thing. A little extra pinch of salt and pepper and I covered this and let it all simmer on the stove top, about 15 more min. At the very end, I added a little corn starch slurry to thicken the juices. My hubby and I devoured our chops and were picking at the remaining apples that were left in the pan... perfectly sweet and savory.

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2013
So easy and my husband couldn't stop himself from eating seconds and even thirds of it. This is sweet and it set up perfectly. I added salt and pepper to taste to the mixture before baking. This is going in the side dish rotation in my house.

Cajun Crawfish and Shrimp Etouffe

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
Delish! I didn't use as much Cayenne pepper. For my spice blend I used Old Bay blackened and Tony Chacheres creole seasoning 50/50, about 3-4tsp total. I couldn't get my hands on fresh crawfish here in NC, so I used 16 ct Gulf shrimp... this is just soooo good and I've never had authentic etouffe before, but I'm sure this is hard to beat.

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2012
Ok, never been a fan of red velvet...it's always been so BLAH! It always seems so flavorless. This receipe is different. The chocolate comes through and they are dense and moist. I used the Wilton gel food coloring in the jars, so I had to guess how much to add, but I just kept adding until it looked to be the right color. The cream cheese frosting recipe included is awesome! It's not too cream cheesy or too sweet. I made these and put them in green cup cake liners, then sprinkled red edible glitter on the frosting for our office Christmas party...huge hit! I will only eat this red velvet from now on!

Original Homemade Italian Beef

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2012
SOOO good. I add a couple cloves of minced garlic and about an hour before we eat, I throw in some sliced onion. Serve it on a nice crusty roll, toasted with butter and garlic...this is a staple at our house.

Chocolate Cobbler

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2012
YUM! It looks weird before you bake it, but it comes out perfect... light spongy cake with hot chocolate sauce underneath. I add a teaspoon of instant coffee granules to the hot water when I pour it on top... like many people, we ate it with vanilla ice cream!

Chocolate Rum Balls I

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2011
YUM! These were perfect....made them exactly as written! Used Sailor Jerry spiced rum, which is 92 proof, so I used just under half a cup.... these mellow after a day or two and the flavors go really well together. My family really enjoyed these. We couldn't resist popping one in our mouth each time we passed through the kitchen!

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2011
I add spinach at the end and wilt it into the broth, and add about a cup of diced bell pepper. I also use chicken sausage to cut down on fat. This soup ROCKS...you have to make it!

Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2011
Made this exactly as written. This rivals any bakery's frosting. Holds up well and piped easily. I'm not gonna lie, I licked the bowl after my cupcakes were frosted! Wouldn't change a thing about this recipe...this is my go to frosting from now on!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2011
Simple, delicious, dense without being heavy. I used half applesauce for half the oil and half Splenda for half of the sugar. I also added chopped walnuts. I tested this bread out on a true Maine-ah, my boyfriend is from Maine and he totally approves this bread!

Chicken Breasts Pierre

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2011
This is soooo good. I made it just as written but used EVOO to cook the chicken instead of butter. The ingredients come together to make this rich, yet surprisingly light, well balanced sauce. I did not have problems with the sauce being too sweet as others have said. If you put even amounts of sugar and vinegar, as the recipes says, you should get more of a tangy taste, not sweet. I served this with home made creamed spinach and wild rice. This goes into my dinner recipe rotation for sure!

Sesame Green Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2011
Yum! I made these exactly as written except I had to use frozen green beans because my grocer was out of fresh. I did not add garlic as others suggested because I wanted to taste the toasted sesame flavor these beans have. Easy side dish that will go with almost any meal.

P.J.'s Fresh Corn Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2011
I didn't have zucchini but I had frozen lima beans so I blanched them and used that instead. This was perfect for summer and a great side dish for grilled meat. My version was like a succotash, so in my house we call this "summer succotash." I would have never thought to use italian dressing with the corn, but it is VERY good!

Beef Bulgogi

Reviewed: May 31, 2011
Awesome! Made it just as written and served them in a lettuce wrap with asian style slaw on top. I did use a sirloin steak, cut it into strips and marinated for about 2 hours. I also boiled the marinade and used it to drizzle over the meat once it was done. Can't wait to eat this again!

Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting

Reviewed: May 11, 2011
I just made this...it's chilling in the fridge until my cake is cool. It is soooo good! I used 1 cup of confectioners sugar and omitted the almond extract. I also froze my bowl and whisk attachment. Once I added the cream, it was the perfect consistency in about 3 minutes. I will be able to pipe this for a border on my cake. The taste is PERFECT...not too sweet, even though I added extra sugar and it's so smooth. This will be my go to frosting recipe from now on!
