Creamy Caramel Flan

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2013
I just put it in the oven. What a mess. I guess 10" baking dish does not mean a 10" pie dish; what size eggs? The caramel is so hard I'm afraid someone will break their teeth. Hope it's good.

White Chocolate Amaretto Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2012
6/18 - cake turned out to be success. Used salted butter; extra large eggs; found the white chocolate pudding at Kroger; the frosting in a can melts faster than 10 seconds. Will make again. 6/17 I don't know what it tastes like yet because we haven't cut into it but the instructions need improving. What size eggs? Salted or unsalted butter. Step 4 says cake cook in pan after pouring over glaze. If you do this glaze is on bottom of cake not on top. My glaze looks nothing like the photo. It's much thinner although I followed the instructions. Topping uses 16 oz package of vanilla frosting. Instructions says to heat a cup of "prepared" frosting. This implies to me that it's coming in a box or pouch-type package and it needs preparation. If there any frosting out there like this I could not find it despite going to two major supermarkets. I bought a "can of frosting." Haven't melted it yet. Kind of anxious about it. Cake baked beautifully; came of of pan perfectly but I took it before I glazed it rather than after. See Step 4. Hope it tastes good. It's for father's day later today; my Dad loves Amaretto. Hope he can taste it. The glaze seemed rather bland... no specific flavor.

Simply Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
I used a roasted garlic pasta sauce. I cooked about 1/2 c finely chopped onion, 1 crushed garlic clove, and some Italian herbs to the meat sauce. Somehow, I layered wrong and found myself having only 1/3 of the cheese mixture to cover the lasagna noodles. Sp, I grated more mozzarella to be sure the lasagna noodles were well covered and also added a good bit of Asiago cheese. Grated Romano Pecorino (we prefer to Parmesan Reggiano) on top. Loved it.

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
I really liked this recipe. Make it exactly as specified except used turbinado surgar (I've a huge container of it and use whenver I can) instead of white. I probably should have cooked a little shorter time, though. We made sandwiches.

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
Wonderful cookies. I used extra crunchy JIF. I had way more than 24 cookies if 1 serving is 1 cookie. Definitely a keeper.

Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
We really like this. Have made it many times and shared with others who have as well. The only criticism is that it is kind of salty so don't add any.

Apricot Brandy Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009
Made it exactly per recipe. Didn't taste the apricot at all. We still devoured it. Nice texture - not too dense.
