Cheddar Pear Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2008
Amazingly good! Very caramel-ly! I was lazy and didn't want to bother with a pie crust, so just made it as a crisp. I even left the peels on. I will make this again and again (a good way to use up too many ripe pears).

Quick Savory Cranberry Glazed Pork Loin Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2011
This is my new favorite pork recipe. Easy, and so delicious. Served it with the sauce scooped up from the pan - yumm! Used apricot jam as couldn't find apple jelly. All the kids gobbled it up, too!

Crispy Marshmallow Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2009
Yum! Always had these at Christmas growing up. They are better made with Mackintosh toffee (3 bars) and it should be 1/2 cup margarine and 1/2 cup condensed milk for that amount. They taste even better straight from the freezer!

Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2010
Very good; doesn't even require baking (if you want a chewier texture). Great right out of the freezer, too, where I hide it to keep us from eating it all at once!)

Two Tier Strawberry Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
Very nice, and so much better with the grenadine than the jello (I tried it both ways). Probably my new favorite way to enjoy strawberries!

Soft cake-like texture. Not a hit with my family.

Taco Salad I

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
Delish! Substituted Catalina for French dressing and added it later (and less of it). Used nacho tortillas. Yumm!

Rhubarb Strawberry Jam

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
Very good, but definitely reduce the sugar. I, too, added some fresh strawberries to the cooking pot, after the rhubarb had been cooking awhile. I doubled the recipe, using 12 cups of rhubarb and 5 cups of sugar and that was plenty sweet. I got twelve one-cup jars (which will be great for gifts) and almost 2 cups leftover for my own fridge. I did process them for 10 minutes.

California Grilled Veggie Sandwich

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2010
Everyone raved over this. Pretty garlicky even with less garlic than called for. Maybe next time I will make the spread earlier and let it sit longer to mellow in the fridge. Very yummy as is, though!

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2010
This is the moistest, richest chocolate cake - I can't wait to make it again. Had it with vanilla cream filling/topping (whipping cream, milk, vanilla instant pudding mix), and it was sublime!

Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken)

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2010
Excellent; very nice flavor. I used half whipping cream, half whole milk. I doubled the butter, and increased the garam masala in the sauce by half. Used chicken breasts cut in small pieces, and finished the sauce in the pan with the chicken. This will be my go-to recipe for butter chicken (it is the best one out of the 3 or 4 I have tried). I made it with just a sprinkle of cayenne so the kids could eat it.

Southwestern Pork Medallions with Cinnamon Couscous and Peach Chutney

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2009
Very nice - spicy! (Too spicy for our kids). I left out the jalepeno in the chutney, and actually used bulgur instead of couscous, which was still very good. The chutney was lovely!

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2011
This is amazing! I used mini chocolate chips. Very nice with a sour cherry sauce and whipped cream, or all by itself.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2010
Very good! I substituted a bit of bran for some of the flour just to "healthy" it up a bit, and couldn't even notice it. Yummy!

High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2010
Did 9 min per pound, and left it in oven a lot longer after turning off heat (because I was out), and it still had red "juice" come out when I poked it and was pink on all but the exterior 1 cm around. Hubby really liked it; I prefer a browner look. Rubbed it with s+p and spices before baking.

Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2010
Very nice and lemony. 5 cups or so of sugar is good (I guess it depends how tightly you pack it into your measuring cup).
