Seven Layer Dip

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
Excellent! Although I made some modifications. In the bean layer, I left out the peppers, and added a 1/4 c. or so of chili sauce, and some extra chili pwdr and cumin. For the guac layer, I used only 2 avacados, which was plenty. I added some chunky salsa to the guac as well. I added a ~1/2 pkg of taco seasoning to the sour cream layer for some color and a kick of flavor. I don't like olives, so I drained a can of black beans and put about 1/2 on top for garnish. Overall, it was a BIG hit and everyone loved the flavors!

Pecan Pie VII

Reviewed: May 5, 2008
Not bad tasting, but the recipe makes WAY too much filling for the 9" deep dish crust that I bought. It poof-ed up out of the pie, and when it settled, the top was not pretty. The pie also took forever to set! 35 - 40 mins is NOT enough...I left it in over 75 mins, and it was still pretty gooey. Luckily it firmed up after a few hrs. I might try it again with a few changes.

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2008
I made this for my dad's birthday, and it was a HUGE HIT! I'd never made carrot cake before, but decided to try other people's modifications with a few of my own: 1) 1 c brown sugar & 1 c white, 2) added extra tsp of vanilla, 3) added 1 c raisins, 4) added 1/4 tsp nutmeg, 5) added 1 extra tsp cinnamon, 6) used 3/4 c applesauce and 1/2 c oil, 7) subst. 1c chopped walnuts. Fabulous & a new family favorite!

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2008
Very yummy! I made 2x the marinade, and used half of it to marinate the salmon. While we grilled the salmon, I reduced the remaining marinade to a nice sauce. We spooned the sauce over the fish and some rice before serving. Absolutely fabulous!

Health Nut Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2008
Everyone loved these! I improvised a lot, based on what I had, and they still came out perfectly. Used wheat germ, flaxseed (which I partially crushed myself), some brown sugar, left out rolled oats, only had skim milk. But the guys at work gobbled them up!

Tortellini Salad I

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2008
Very good! I left out some of the things I don't like (olives) or didn't have (mint, feta), used dry seasonings (didn't have fresh parsley), and added more veggies (shredded carrot, broccoli, etc). Served it at a family gathering, and everyone loved it...even the kids who hate all veggies!

Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2008
Excellent! I grilled the meat, but made up the sauce & drizzled it over after grilling. Amazing flavor! Drizzle it over rice or potatoes as well.

Sea Bass Cuban Style

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2008
Made this recipe with tilapia, and it was delicious! I used canned tomatoes with chilis, as one reviewer suggested, and it added just the right amount of punch.
