Mocha Walnut Pie

Reviewed: May 16, 2009
Excellent. I used 2 x 1 ounce suqares of 70% cocoa bittersweet and 2 tbsps of Hershey's Special Dark chips...I want this really rich. And it was! Easy too. My six yesr old daughter did all of the mixing in the saucepan while I added the ingredients. Center was set for me at 42 minutes. Sprinkled with almonds as that's what I had. Dinner guests like this very much...the texture was sort of a cross between a brownie and a thich mousse. I'm mostly a cake person myself, but this certainly gave me my chocolate fix. ;-)

Light Wheat Rolls

Reviewed: May 19, 2008
Ok so I have to admit I altered this quite a bit, but the recipe as it is is an excellent recipe for rolls! I was rolling these out when my daughter said she'd like some cinnamon raisin bread. SO, what I did was to mix 3/4 cup sugar with 1 TBSP cinnamon and sprinkle it on the strips after they were cut. Then I sprinkled with raisins and rolled as the recipe directed. The outcome was FANTASTIC. I have done these as written and they're very good. But they're stellar with cinnamon and raisins or pecans. Thank you for the recipe!!

Ultimate Double Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2009
50 stars! 500 stars!!! As a true chocoholic I'm always looking for the ultimate fix...and this just might be it. I used dark chocolate (70%) and stirred in Hershey's Special Dark chocolate chips. Otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I'm in heaven. This made about 60 cookies for me which is a double-edged sword. I'm thrilled that there's so many delicious cookies, but I'm watching my weight so can't just sit down and eat every last one. THANK YOU Carol for an excellent recipe :-)

Grenadian Spice Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2008
Oh yes - this is a most excellent cake. I didn't have a lime handy so I zested a clementine. I also used fat free plain organic yogurt instead of milk to make it moister with a tighter crumb and baked it in an ungreased 9" springform pan (lined the bottomw with baking paper). It was perfect. Nicely spiced as is and the orange gave it a hint of sweetness. Drizzled the plates with honey before serving. DH ate 3 slices, and he's usually a chocolate guy. Thanks for the keeper!

Bacon-Wrapped Venison

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2009
My boss brought me a venison tenderloin Thursday that he had bagged on Wenesday. I made this last night for my M/I/L and B/I/L. I loved this and so did they! I almost followed the recipe, but think it would be good as written. I added a splash each of soy and worchestershire sauce and doubled the garlic. Marinted 2 hours, then wrapped in bacon and grilled these. (I did not make the sauce with the mushrooms). My filets came out tender and sweet, not at all "gamey." Served with grilled garlic asparagus and roasted sweet potatoes. If I'm ever the lucky recipient of a venison tenderloin again, I'd definitely repeat this recipe.

100 Percent Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2010
This is great bread! I had to make some omissions based on what I had handy (no sesame, sunflower seeds or coconut oil. I tossed in some wheat germ instead - otherwise followed the recipe except for the shape...I got 6 sandwich rolls and 1 large bunny loaf out of this. Thanks for the recipe!

Apple Hermits

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2008
These cookies are wonderful! I made a few minor changes - 1 and 1/3 cups white flour then 2/3 cups whole wheat. To keep the wheat from drying them out I added 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce. Oh and I keep the skins on the apples. Awesome, thanks for a great recipe!

Easy Iced Coffee

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
Really good! For some reason it never occurred to me to look for a drink recipe on here - but I was jonesing an iced coffee and didn't feel like going to get one, so this was my first stop. I followed the recipe except that I added a tsp of unsweetened cocoa (for an iced mocha) and used skim milk. I'll never buy an iced coffee again. Thanks Christy!

Chocolate Snaps Sugar Cookie

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
Excellent! I followed other reviewers and omitted the margarine/cocoa step and added the cocoa directly to the dry ingredients. I chilled the dough 2 hours and had no trouble rolling these into balls. Using my small cookie scoop I got 47 cookies, and I rolled some in powdered sugar and some in granulated. Unlike some of the other reviewers - we prefer the look and taste of those rolled in granulated sugar. Mine were perfect at 8 minutes, slightly crisp on the outside and chewy (almost brownie-like) inside. A new favorite for us! Thanks for sharing!

Very Chocolate Ice Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2009
SO GOOD! This was my first time making ice cream (as an adult, as a child I always helped my mom used to make it with a hand crank machine and chipped ice) so I wasn't sure what to expect. I've made custard before though so I had that part knocked. This turned out excellent for me. I used skim milk and only 1 cup of cream as that's all I had in the fridge. I also used 70% dark chocolate. I bet the quality of chocolate you use makes all the difference here. If you use cheap, it'll taste cheap. It still came out incredibly smooth and fudgy even with the skim milk, so I'll do it that way every time (and there WILL be others) I make this to shave off a few calories. Hands down better than any ice cream you can get at the store. I also baked a few double chocolate cookies, crumbled them and popped them into my kitchen aid about 15 minutes into the churning. Absolute bliss - I'll never buy chocolate ice cream again.

Dry Ranch Style Seasoning for Dip or Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2010
This is good! I made this as dip using one cup each olive oil mayo and light sour cream. I too used kosher salt (only 1/4 tsp) and added 1/4 tsp cayenne to give it just a tiny kick. It came out nice and thick so it didn't drip off the veggies. My mom, who normally hates ranch, really liked this! She said it was "so nice and herb-y instead of mayonnaise-y."

Blueberry Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2014
This was exceptional! I used fresh blueberries (almost 3 pints) and an oil-based pie crust. I might've used a bit less lemon juice and I added a splash of almond extract. Thank you for sharing your recipe!

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2010
Not like this recipe needs another glowing review, but here it is anyway. This soup is OUTSTANDING! I even goofed up and dumped in a can of beef broth instead of chicken and it is still excellent. (Look forward to trying it the right way). My idiocy aside, I followed the rest of the recipe to the letter. Thank you for sharing this with us!

Caramel Macchiato Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2010
Oh YUM! I'm not so much a fan of the drink, but love coffee ice cream so I figured I'd give this a go. I used FF half and half instead of milk because I wanted a creamier ice cream, but otherwise kept the ice cream portion of the recipe the same. I chilled in the fridge for 4 hours, then processed it in my kitchen aid with the ice cream attachment. While it was going and I was digging through my cabinet for the caramel, I had a stroke of delicious evil genius...I used Nutella instead of the caramel! I nuked about 4 TBSP to melt and stirred THAT into the ice cream. My husband is sitting next to me licking the bowl. 5 stars from him!

Choereg (Armenian Easter Bread)

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2009
Oh this bread was delicious! I found mahleb at Amazon.com believe it or not. I halved the recipe and used all butter (never ever margarine at my house) and got two large, tender braids. I liked it best fresh from the oven, but DH enjoyed it lightly toasted with honey butter. Thank you so much for sharing!

Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2015
I just made these. I know they are not in any way authentic, but they were good! I had leftover Costco rotisserie chicken, so I used that. I did not have the cheese in the ingredient list, so I just used a shredded Mexican blend and added 1 tbsp of Philly cream cheese to the mixture when it was in the pan and stirred to melt it. These came together very quickly and were simple, delicious comfort food. Thank you for the recipe!

Spam Burgers

If you're a Spam person like my mother is you'd probably love this. She makes something similar (no bacon on hers) and absolutely LOVES it.

A-Number-1 Banana Cake

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
Wonderful banana cake recipe! This one will be my go to from now on. I subbed sour cream for the buttermilk and it rose nicely with the 1 tbsp of baking soda. Nice and moist, delicious with a lemon cream cheese frosting (8oz cream cheese, 1/4 cup softened butter, 1 cup confectioner's sugar, 1 tsp lemon extract). Yum!

Quinoa Asparagus and Feta Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2014
I really enjoyed this! Followed the recipe as written. Served with a balsamic grilled chicken and it was a good match. When I make this again (and I will) I will add a little garlic and decrease the lemon juice a bit - just personal preference. Might serve this over wilted spinach next time. Thank you for sharing your recipe!
