Buttermilk Corn Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2006
This cornbread was so easy to make and it came out perfect. The only thing I did differently is that I added butter instead of vegetable oil and measured out less sugar because I wanted them a little more savory for the chili I was serving them with. I also made the corn bread in a muffin tin and baked it for a little less than 20 mins. They came out moist and delicious.

Rugelach III

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2006
I've made these Rugelach about 3 times already and they are always such a hit, now that Christmas is nearing am going to be making these non stop to give away as gifts. It really is time consuming but if you do have the time you must make them, they are so elegant and delicious theres not a single person that won't enjoy them especially if you make different flavors I usually make apricot, strawberry, rasberry and chocolate (I melt Godiva bittersweet chips in the microwave and just add a splash of heavy cream)

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2006
Such an easy and thorougly satisfying recipe, I've made it 4 times in the last month (by popular demand) and every time I love it more. Everyone complains about the sugar but use your discretion based on the apples you have. Its a must make...Enjoy everyone.

Fresh Asparagus Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2006
Made this twice in the week. I thought the lemon juice and yogurt were a little weird but it gave the soup a nice tang. The parmesan on top was so good.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
Used butter instead of shortening but still came out huge, soft and delicious. I'll try it next time with shortening, I'm sure it'll taste even better.

Mall Pretzels

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2007
Couldn't believe how good they were. I rolled some raisins in half and covered them in cinnamon sugar and just salt on the other ones. Came out great next time I'll try to roll them a little thinner though.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2006
I served a small amount as an appetizer and it was so filling we barely ate the rest of the dinner. I added extra ham and frozen sweet peas and carrots just for some more color.

Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
It was such a simple dish but it tasted really good. It's fantastic kid food and ketchup on them is a must.

Oreo® Cookie Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2006
I made this for my boyfriend who loves oreos and wanted a dessert different from oreo cheesecake. I decided to go for this one because all the ingredients sounded delish together and it was so easy to make i whipped it up in 15 minutes. When he tasted it he said it was just like his mom's pudding pie but with oreos not a bad thing at all but I don't know the oreo CAKE part made me think it would be more solid for some reason. It really was amazing but don't think you're going to be able to cut it in perfect slices to serve...unless you freeze it.

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
I had a poor loaf of stale french bread that I didn't want to go to waste, so I decided to make bread pudding. I only had about a half cup of milk so I used half and half, heavy cream and about 1/8 cup of Amaretto to make it to 2 cups. I used less eggs like everyone recommended and since I used Amaretto, which is pretty sweet I added less sugar and threw in some slivered almonds and golden raisins. It took a little longer in the oven but came out absolutely amazing, the Amaretto gives it a such sweet punch.

Pumpkin Cheesecake II

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2006
I made two this Thanksgiving, light fluffy one and a dense creamy one, completely inadvertently thought. I was more prepared for the first one I made, I left out the cream cheese and eggs so they could come out to room tempture and that one came out amazing, the cream cheese was very very easy to whip and it resulted in a fluffier cheesecake. It was so lovely I decided to take it to work. The next day I was a little pressed for time with the second cheesecake and guess I didn't give the eggs and cream cheese enough time to get the chill off, which made the cream cheese harder to whip and the outcome was a denser cheese cake but never the less delicious. I prefer the fluffier cheesecake, I think with that version you could even taste the pumpkin more because the cream cheese is more broken up. Either way you just have to make it for the holidays it so beautiful and pleasing different.

Pumpkin Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2006
When I read the recipe I thought it would make for some great chili but then I saw reviews I realized it needed some tweaking. I made my chili with fresh butternut squash that I diced and roasted in a 400 degree oven with olive oil salt and pepper for 30 mins until tender. I think its important to season that meat while its searing, I used about a teaspoon and a half of taco seasoning and salt to taste and didnt drain the turkey. I added a can of pink kidney beans although next I'll add just half a can because the butternut squash really covered the creaminess. I semi-smashed the squash when it came out the oven making sure to leave it chunky then I added a bay leaf and homemade chicken broth (less salt) until the consistency looked right to me. Everyone loved it.

Garlic Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2006
I made these with butter and olive oil and since I didn't have any lemon juice on hand I added lemon extract, I also threw in some rosemary sprigs. I left the temperature at 350 like the recipe states and they took a little less than an hour and a half.
