Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
I roast my potatoes whole in the oven then peel the skin after they cool a little. The flavor is much better than with them boiled.

Sweet Potato Pie III

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
I wonder if she meant to use sweetened condensed milk instead of evaporated milk? That would add the missing sweetness.

Ravishing Red Velvet Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
This is a good basic recipe; I'm from LA, but currently living in desert clime, so your location may make a difference in certain recipes---if you live in a dry climate, I suggest the following changes: reduce flour by 1/4 c, replace shortening with veg oil, and add two tsp vanilla extract. These changes may make this recipe a winner for you.

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2009
I like the simplicity of this recipe. You have to be sure to beat the butter until it is light and fluffy and beat the sugar with the butter until it is well incorporate, but don't over beat once the eggs are added. I suggest using cake flour, if you can, but don't add any additional tablespoons of it (as the package will suggest to you), and I replaced half of the softened butter with vegetable oil, and added about 1/2 teaspoon of butter flavor. It was a perfect cake. I've made it before, as written, and it was pretty good that way too, but with the changes, it was 5 stars.

Red Velvet Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
Recipe is fine,except for the shortening--will do much better to use up to one cup of veg oil for this cake. The icing may be difficult for some to get right, and/or just not for everyone's taste--it is not a quick frosting, it is a cooked icing and needs some patience and time or it WILL NOT WORK (that is why I don't generally use cooked icings LOL). I will say that the amount of food coloring you need will depend on whether you are using liquid or paste form of food coloring. Will require more with liquid and much less with gel or paste form. I just eyeball it until the milk starts looking bloody. Sounds gross, I know.....The cook time will vary by several minutes depending on lots of factors--start checking after 25 minutes, as the recipe gives a guideline, not a law. It is worth it to get a nice RV cake if you really like cake!!

Crazy Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2009
This recipe is okay as is (especially if for kids and with filling or frosting)--but it would be rated higher with the following changes: increase the amount of cocoa to 1 cup, and use two teaspoons of vanilla or add a teaspoon of chocolate extract. SIFT the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix them with the wet ingredients before adding to a prepared pan--if you sift the dry, it will help the leavening be more uniform than mixing in the pan. Give it a try!

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2008
I used a 'Nilla wafer crust, 2 cans of the milk, and an extra 2 tablespoons of lime juice. I also used a microplane to zest the limes. I had a little extra filling, so I baked it in a small glass dish and crumbled graham crakers on top to get a preview of the pie...very rich, sweet/tart, and yummy. And no worries letting kids taste the batter since no eggs were used.

Key Lime Cream Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2002
Delicious! I made this last weekend while my sister-in-law visited. She said that it was a very good key lime pie (I had never had it before). The texture was good--I did use my new microplane grater for the lime rind. I found it VERY tart (as I am told key lime pies are supposed to be), so I made a slightly sweetened sour cream topping and offered sliced macerated strawberries for options. Surprisingly wonderful given the small amount of effort required. Thanks so much for sharing!

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: May 25, 2002
I have been making this for months, and I can't believe I'm just writing the review. I use chicken sauteed in olive oil and onion and garlic or leftover chicken/turkey--I haven't actually used canned chicken yet. Sometimes I add a pinch each of chili powder and cumin. I garnish with sour cream (a must), avocado, fresh cilantro, a little lime juice,and the crumbly left-overs in the gigantic Costco bag of tortilla chips DH MUST buy every time. I don't drain the cans. My parents and sisters wre soooo impressed when I threw this together in minutes using leftover chicken while visiting for Easter. MUST TRY!

Apple Scones

Reviewed: May 25, 2002
In a word, YUM! DH, who is not a fruit or scone person, really loved this. The kids and I enjoyed with lemon curd. I was sorry I made only a half-batch! Note for the lazy or cooking impaired: I use the drop method for forming my scones--I do minimal kneading in the bowl just to get everything incorporated and plop serving spoon sized mounds of dough on a silpat lined baking sheet. EASY and FABULICIOUS!!!

Insanely Easy Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: May 11, 2002
Great recipe--My husband, a total meat and bread type, is soooo surprised with this dish! Served to kids with rice and cheese and sour cream. I did add more chili powder and less cumin. I also left out the red bell pepper (didn't want it too sweet) and celery (didn't have). TIP--those who found it too soupy can add in several scoops of spicy refried beans (vegetarian) to help thicken it up--heat it for about 5 minutes after you add it and just before serving it to gauge how much you want. Also, you can deglaze the pan with a few ounces of beer, wine, veg. or chicken stock before adding the tomatoes, etc. Great and flexible recipe--even for the cooking impaired. Thanks!

Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2001
THE BEST---SHOULD BE RENAMED "RICH AND DREAMY" I was a little sceptical, but this is a real winner. I added garlic, but otherwise stuck to the exact ingredients. A must try indeed!

Buttermilk Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2001
This is fast, but tastes just okay. Would be great as a last minute thing for a bake sale or something for kids. I found the cookies too....grainy--something was strange about the texture.

Toll House® Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2001
I can't believe I'm saying this, but there were way too many chocolate chips for the amount of batter---otherwise pretty good. My son really enjoyed them.

Crazy Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2001
Wow! This was not the BEST cake I've had, but it was surprisingly tasty considering the ease of preparation and the readily available ingredients. The cake was quite sturdy and perfect for a time when you GOTTA have chocolate cake or you need a quickie for some kind of function. I used the frosting recipe from the back of the Hershey's cocoa container. I'm sooo glad I tried this one. THANX!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies II

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2001
Very nice cookie! It was just sweet enough and had good peanut butter flavor. Many other pb cookie recipes have way too little pb or too much flour. My family really enjoyed this one--a definite keeper.

Easy 1000 Watt Microwave Pralines

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2001
This recipe produced an extremely creamy praline with subtle flavor. The problem for me (and apparently for the previous reviewer)is the amount of liquid--I cut it down by about 3 tablespoons or so. I would recommend letting the mixture rest for about 1 minute after the second zap in the microwave. Then, you have to beat it like crazy until it starts to go opaque--spoon out some and see if it looks like the pecans are starting to stick together. THEN you are ready to drop them--work fast because once it starts to set up, your time is running out. This recipe is certainly worth a try--the texture is heavenly. If the pralines don't come out, you have some lovely ice cream topping.

Microwave Pralines

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2001
I have made this recipe several times. I use a mix of brown and white sugar and I drop the candies onto a buttered baking sheet. I think it's a great recipe--You have to check your microwave wattage though. Mine is 850 and this recipe works well--I tried another recipe with a cook time of 13 minutes and I got rock.
