Pumpkin Toffee Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
I'm rating according to my own adjustments. I tried the recipe "as written" first & changed it accordingly. went back to basic graham cracker crust, put 2/3 pkg of toffee chips INSIDE the pumpkin layer, the rest on top of the sour cream layer, omitted the caramel. I made 4 of them this Christmas season & people are still raving & asking for more!! thanks for posting the recipe!

Sausage Cheese Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
the men at parties LOVE this one. I have taken to using spicy turkey sausage, and always add chopped black olives. this is one of those dips you can dump the kitchen sink into, and it just gets better. recipe makes a lot - and that's good, because they will EAT IT! (I use frito's to dip, but good with tortilla chips too)

Rum Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2007

Green Tomato Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2010
I love this recipe & can't believe I never rated it before. I usually don't tell people about the tomatoes until after they've tried it & raved! This is one of my most-requested desserts! I too cut the sugar to about 1.5 cups, and don't usually put in the raisins (only because I have too many friends who don't like them). Also - I have tried it with the cream cheese frosting & without.. I prefer without, it's just too good all on it's own! YUMMY - one is baking now & the house smells so good! I can't wait for later! **as a side note - I have since tried this in a bundt, and had good success. I baked longer & at 330, and had no problem with a soft center as previous reviews stated. Also drizzled the rum cream-cheese glaze from another recipe - YUM!**

Perfect St. Patrick's Day Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2012
Very good, big hit at work! I used a bundt pan, cooked it about an hour, and made my own Irish Cream/Whiskey glaze rather than a full-blown frosting - and it was yummy! Pic posted.

Cranberry Cream Cheese Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
I can't go higher than 4 stars as-is. It's "good," not great. I doubled the cranberries per other suggestions, and believe that is necessary. I think I'll double the cream cheese next time & add an egg to make it more of a "real" cheese cake center, and I'll add some cinnamon to the crust/topping per previous comments. but I will try it again this holiday season until I find the right combo of ingredients!

German Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2008
Followed recipe "as is" (not my style usually) - and it was a huge hit at family bbq last night. I had an influx of apples recently & tried 3 cake recipes in 4 days - this was BY FAR the best of the 3. I used a bundt pan & sugared, instead of flowered the pan - LOVED the crispy exterior paired with the moist, dense interior!! Highly recommended!

Bean Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2009
I'm rating according to my adjustments: I only used black & pinto beans (2 cans ea), omitted the parsley and instead added about 4T chopped cilantro, 2 chopped jalapenos, and lots of extra lime juice + a total of about 6 oz of the salsa (I found it WAY too dry)... that being said - we really enjoyed it, and I'll definitely make it again.

Zucchini Spice Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2008
very very good! and a hit with my friends. my first try was with a cup of plumped raisins - mmm! I'll be trying several other options; carrots next I think! it doesn't need it, but this would be a great cake with cram cheese frosting.

Crab Quiche

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2012
I had to change this one a bit, for what I had on hand.. used REAL crab, an "italian blend" cheese, 2% milk (I'm sure cream would be an awesome touch), Cholula pepper sauce, and added some garlic seasoning. Plus, I've made many quiches over the years, and ALWAYS put the chunky ingredients in the crust, then pour the egg mixture over, so I did it that way. It was super simple, and it turned out really yummy! Will make again!

Brownie Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
my GO-TO frosting recipe for a couple years now! I haven't made anything else since finding this one. SO simple, and it turns out lovely and smooth - you just gotta work fast, once it's poured on the brownies. The only thing I'd say for advice .. sometimes I have to put the pan back on the burner, low heat for a short time, to melt the last little bit of chocolate that's being stubborn.

Pam's Sugar Free Chocolate Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
the diabetic bf loves this one, I make it all the time. I often will use the pre-made graham cracker crusts, and sometimes cheat w/the chocolate ones too.. he particularly loves it when I throw in some sliced bananas!

Carrot-Sweet Potato Mash

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2008
I added a 2nd small sweet potato, and probably over-measured the brown sugar by a tad.. but "for me" I followed this one closely - and LOVED it!! big hit with friends too - thanks very much for sharing this dish!! it will be a regular at my table henceforth. :)

Peanut Butter Cookies VIII

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2008
I made these for a co-worker's birthday, in place of Chocolate Lovers Favorite Cake (try it if you haven't!), when I found out someone else brought a store-bought carrot cake! Everyone raved over the cookies, left the cake nearly untouched. :) I used chocolate cake, put in a tad extra peanut butter (everyone loves the stuff), and added chocolate/peanut butter swirled chips. I rolled them into small balls and just let them bake up fluffy - they were pretty, and tasty!

Cabbage Roll Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2007
one of my favorite recipes from this site so far, and I've been using allrecipes for 6+ years! I've made this a number of times - it's not pretty, but it sure tastes good!! the only thing I do differently is to add extra garlic & some red pepper flakes (I like it spicy).

Chocolate Ganache

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009

Candied Carrots

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
this was my "healthy" veggie side dish at Christmas - I just steamed the carrots in a microwave baggie, for all of 7 minutes - then tossed them in the sauce. YUMMY! love it - and so simple!

Peanut Crunch Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2009
I've made this one a couple times, and it's always a hit. I made it "as is" initially, and have played with the peanut butter quantity, as well as switching up the chips. I have one in the oven right now with about 1 1/4 c peanut butter, no peanuts, and I only used chocolate chips (and increased to about 1 1/4 cup). This is a co-workers birthday cake - she'll LOVE it!!

Crab 'N Shrimp Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
this didn't do well at all on the Christmas appetizer table! I was surprised, it has great ingredients & potential. fam didn't like it, but roommate did, so I was saved from dumping the not-cheap ingredients! might try again, and will jazz it up.. a LOT!
