Avocado Shrimp Bisque

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2007
This was a very delicious soup. I made some changes to it though. I added about 2 tsp minced garlic, used ground cayenne pepper instead of black, squeezed a lime as well as using 2 tsp lemon juice to it, used 1 tsp curry powder. AND I added a shot of clear tequila (no preference to clear, just what was on hand). And I used about 1/2 cup diced onion. I added all ingredients excluding milk, to blender and pureed until smooth and silky. I then transferred to a pot, mixed in the milk and heated it. It was DELICIOUS!!! Thanks for the recipe. I was very glad I used it as a base bcuz with my tweeking it was fabulous!

Meringue II

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2007
This was the best meringue recipe ever. My mom was AMAZED by it!!! I messed up the first time I made it by not letting the corn starch thicken enough.... but my fault completely and the next 3 times I made it it came out perfect and delicious. The "extra step" is more than worth it...

Coconut Cream Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2007
This was sooooo good. I made it twice, so far, once for a dinner party and the coconut cream came out way too runny, but was my fault. I made again for my work and it was perfectly delicious! Will make again. So many ppl are surprised to have the coconut cream with a meringue, but are pleasantly surprised!

Grandma's Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2007
This was very good. I tripled the recipe and was able to use much more than the 4 1/2 cups cooked macaroni (I used shells) that it called for. I added several different cheeses and more than that called for too. It was very creamy but still not too cheesy... Next time even MORE cheese, only use the single recipe (maybe double, since I made for so many ppl) but all in all very good.

Grandma's Apples and Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2007
This was so delicious. I made it for a dessert to a potluck dinner party and ppl were fighting over the last pieces. Ok, so those people were my husband and I lol. Next time I will make it cinnamon sugar that I add to the mix and sprinkle on top to make it just a tad bit sweeter, but as is it is still a HUGELY delicious recipe. A good "not TOO sweet" dessert or good for breakfast even.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2007
So these really were the BEST PANCAKES I HAVE EVER TASTED IN MY LIFE!!! Better than the boxed mixes (by FFFFFAAAAARRRR), better than diners, and (shhhhh) better than my mom or dad's! When I made the first mix, it was EXTREMELY thick and I thought I had done something wrong after I put the batter on the griddle. So before it was done cooking I added more milk (not sure how much, just went by my grandma's "stop when you think its enough" mentality) and made it thinner. Then I tried the cooked "original" recipe and regretted adding the milk. It was the thickest, most delicious pancake ever. But even with the milk, they were so thick, and fluffy, and delicious. My husband loved them too and couldn't believe they were from scratch. Thanks SOOOOO much for the recipe. I followed it to a T, until I added the milk.

African Peanut Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2007
This was REALLY good. My husband and I had it for lunch the day after I made it because other reviewers said it was the best the next day to let the flavors meld. I did a few things different. I used hot salsa instead of crushed tomato, used a red and yellow bell pepper, added 2 jalepenos, 1 - 2 tsp cayenne pepper, and I used wild black rice and precooked it some. It was watery last night but has since thickened up. We added a dallop of daisy (sour cream) and ate it with Indian Naan in a curry flavor and it was absolutely wonderful! Thanks so much for the recipe. I will make again and again!

South African Malvapoeding (Marshmallow Pudding)

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2007
This was so delicious. I didn't quite know what to expect with this recipe with a name like Marshmallow Pudding and reading some of the ingredients but I was more than pleasantly surprised I used orange juice and about 3/4 cups at that, but added some sugar to the sauce. I don't quite know if the cake, or whatever I would call it, was supposed to fall a bit in the middle. No matter what it was decadent, unique, and something I will definately make again in the future! The hubby absolutely loved it too!

African Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2007
This stew was... AMAZING! I followed several suggestions. I made the soup with HOT salsa in place of the crushed tomato. I doubled the garlic, onion, spices, and added approx 2 tsp curry, 1 tsp paprika, and 1 tsp cayenne pepper. I used about 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts/thighs, dark red kidney beans instead of garbanzo beans, instead of water I used 2 cups fat free, low sodium chicken broth, and I actually used the full amount (2/3 c) or so CHRUNCHY peanut butter and thought it tasted tremendous. My husband absolutely LOVED this and he is a pretty picky eater. I had very high hopes for this and it delivered in every way possible. My hubby is actually sitting here right now telling me to add some things. He wants everybody to know that we loved this with Indian Tandoori Naan. We bought it from Trader Joe's in the Curry flavor, sprayed butter spray on it and baked in the oven until browned. This bread is wonderful to sop up the delicious flavors of the African Chicken Stew. I would give this 100 stars if I could!!!!!

Irish Cream Truffle Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2006
This was a really good fudge I think it just had too much "bite" for my husband and I. I plan on bringing it to class on monday and divying it out to my classmates. I want to try it again with about 1/2 c irish cream and 1/2 c evaporated milk or sweetened evaporated milk. And changing the semisweet/white portions because I think it was a little too dark for my taste. All in all, if this is what you like, it is a WONDERFUL recipe! The texture was as good if not better than candy store bought fudge!

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2006
This was sooooo good! The only thing that was a little off was 20 hours being too long of a cook time. It was a little dried out on the edges of the roast, but the inside was soooo tender and just fell apart. I loved it just by the forkfull or on a bun and my husband wanted a little barbeque sauce so I made him somthing like a pulled pork sandwich. His exact words "You really made my day with this one, puppy".

Butterscotch Drops

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2006
This is a FABULOUS recipe! I doubled up the recipe and instead of making them "drops" I let them sit, completely mixed, in a baking pan, as you would with rice crispy treats then cut them up. They are sticky and I don't know if they were supposed to harden a lot but sooooo good! Thanks for the recipe!

Marshmallow Treats

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2006
This was soooo delicious! I made a bigger quantity, using 10 c rice crispies and almost 10 cup marshmallows with a stick of butter. I think the little "extra" marshmallows were wonderful for it. Husband loved it and it disappeared in less than 3 days!

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2006
This was very good while it was hot. When I put the rest in the fridge and ate it the next day, it was not "creamy" at all, just a very sticky texture. Also, it was not sweet enough, in my opinion. I am going to try again with a mix between evaporated milk and regular milk as well as adding some more sugar.

All-Day Apple Butter

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2006
This was a really delicious apple butter. I first tried to make it with apple sauce baked in the oven and it was good but when i got my slow cooker I decided for the "better" kind. And it was SOOOOO much better! It took FOREVER to chop, core, peel, etc. and after about 13 hours and the apples were still chunky I decided to experiment and put them in my blender. It worked beautifully. I bought a food processor and am in the process of making my second batch (of 4) for jars of apple butter for Christmas presents. Also, I used 2 cups packed dark brown sugar and 1 cup white granulated sugar, and along with the spices in the recipe I added about 1 teaspoon of ground ginger. My husband LOVED it. Thanks for the recipe!

Baked Apples

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2006
This was really delicious. I made cinnamon sugar to fill the apple. Also I used an apple called a "Grapel" which is supposed to be the texture of an apple but taste like a grape. It was really just a sweeter apple. When I baked this I sprinkled the bottom of the glass dish with cinnamon sugar, added water to cover the bottom and then put a couple pats of butter beneath the apples in addition to the butter in the apple. It came out great. Next time I think that I will use some crushed walnuts, almonds, or pecans as well. Thanks so much for the recipe. Easy to make, wonderfully fragrant and exquisitely delicious.

Beef Stroganoff II

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2006
I used beef chuck, added sliced shitake mushrooms, and also added more milk. It was VERY GOOD but it didn't have a WHOLE lot of flavor. That is easily fixed, though, and I will definately use this as a stroganoff base recipe from now on!

Mimi's Slumgullion

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2006
This was extremely delicious. My husband and I both loved it and are looking forward to taking it for lunch tomorrow. I added a FINELY diced habanero pepper for spice when I browned the onion. Also, I added the bell peppers right before the kielbasa which left them still a little crisp which I loved. All in all, wonderful, cheap to make, and will be a repeat in my household. Thanks so much for the recipe.
