Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
Made this for a family gathering and it was a hit, even with family members who love tiramisu and enjoy it at nice Italian restaurants. I chose this receipe because it does not require raw eggs. Also, ended up using rum but only because it was more affordable than the larger bottle of coffee flavored liqueur. The flavor was still very nice. Thank you for the recipe and all the reviews and suggestions. Will make it again sometime using the substitue marscarpone to see if it is much different.

Chocolate Eclair Dessert

Reviewed: May 5, 2010
Definately a favorite of friends and family. As several other reviewers said, this is even better made with french vanilla pudding. After trying another's recipe for a boiled homemade frosting and having it not turn out (I'm sure I did something wrong - as can't make fudge either) this is how I made the frosting: Melt 1 stick butter in a microwaveable bowl until just completely melted (not boiling) & wisk in 1/3 cup cocoa until smooth. Add 2 TBS milk & 1 tsp. vanilla, wisking until smooth. Sift in 1 cup of powdered sugar and wisk until smooth and creamy. It was very easy to spread. This dessert can be made up to 24 hours before serving; the longer refrigerated the better. Hope this helps someone else enjoy this dessert that I'm tempted to sit in front of the TV with and just enjoy right out of the pan :)

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2008
We really liked these. Was curious about the soy sauce and mustard, but they did add another layer of flavor. Halved the recipe, except for using 2 cans of black beans. When making the burritos used twice as much of the bean mixture as sweet potato & sprayed them with cooking spray before baking as another reviewer suggested. They were not bland at all and the right proportion of beans and potato. Our version made 7 medium sized burritos.

Mom's Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2008
This was good though had to make changes because of not having mushroom soup on hand. Instead made a white sauce from 2 tbs. butter and 1/4 flour, liquid from small can of mushrooms & and little soy milk until it was the consistancy of canned soup, also added garlic and onion powder. Steamed the squash in the microwave for 5 minutes, twice, draining after each time heated. The squash was still a bit crunchy, and next time will try it for 15 min. in microwave. After putting steamed vegetables in baking dish, spread topping on top. Next time will mix in with the vegetables, as the flavor from sauce and cheese would have been throughout the dish. We did enjoy this and will make it again as posted.

Rhubarb Bread I

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2008
Very nice bread with a nice flavor and is moist. Made a few changes only because I find it hard to follow a recipe without changing something...Added 1 cup chopped strawberrie just for another layer of flavor. Substituted: 1 cup whole wheat for white flour, 1/3 cup applesauce for 1/3 cup oil. Before baking topped with 2 Tbs. finely chopped walnuts and 1 tsp. Turbinado sugar which made a simple, slightly crunchy, not overly sweet topping. Tested for donenss with toothpick, as it took longer than 40 min probably because of the strawberries. Thanks very much for this recipe!

Cold Tuna Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2008
My husband and I liked this receipe. Only gave it four stars because I couldn't make it as written. Didn't have mayonaise so replaced it with about 2/3 cup sour cream, upped the Italian dressing to 1/4 cup. Also added: lemon pepper, sliced black olives and some chopped red bell pepper. Great light summer meal.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2007
The high rating and number of reviews says this this must a very good basic pumpkin bread recipe. But after reading others reviews made some alterations and have since baked this many times. These changes make it 'lighter' version: Omitted water; used 1 cup egg substitute instead of eggs, reduced oil to 1/2 cup and added 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce, reduced sugar by 1 cup and used 1/2 cup white, 1/2 brown, 1/4 cup plus 2 TBS each of Splenda Blend white and brown (conversions are on the Splenda bags); 2 cups white flour & 1 1/2 whole wheat. Finally, doubled all spices (though NOT salt or baking soda). Have used the altered recipe for a fund raiser and someone ordered 5 more for his freezer. This makes a very moist and dense bread. Hope this helps others to enjoy a healthier version. Hesitated to submit with all of these changes, but this recipe is so good and easily adapts to personal preferences.

Super Easy Salmon Cakes

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2007
We like these a lot because they are fast and healthy. At anothers suggestion sauteed the onion and also added finely chopped 1/2 stalk of celery & a squeeze of lemom juice. Have also substitued the round buttery crackers for the saltines, which worked well. My husband is very fond of these.

Lemon Posset

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2007
I was looking for a recipe to use cream that had just begun to sour. This receipe, calling for only 3 ingredients and including fresh lemon, was worth a try. It was so worth it. Slightly tangy, very smooth and creamy and wonderful flavor. Will definitely try it with fresh cream next time. Note, did try it with some fresh fruit, but decided it didn't need it.

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2007
Had rated this earlier and did not include that we used soy Silk w/ Vanilla the with great success. Made it for company with 2% milk and it was a disaster! So, for those who don't do dairy, soy milk works great too. When chilled it does thicken quite a bit, but can be restored to orignial consistency with some added milk.
