Holiday Rum Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2012
Sinfully rich! So good! I used a 9 x 9 inch pan of stale Gluten Free brownies (Betty Crocker)... A 1/4 of which had already been eaten (Oops). I crumbled the brownies in a food processor and added a little more than 1/4C Rum... they were strong, but for the better! Four ounces of dark chocolate was not enough to coat these. I had some semi sweet chocolate chips on hand that I used to coat the remaining. Husband loved these... taking the rest to our family Christmases.

Pumpkin Cheesecake II

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2012
I've made this cheesecake twice... absolutely out of this world good! Nothing but great reviews from friends and family. I used gluten free graham crackers in the crustI left pie in the oven 2 hours after it had baked... once pie had cooled I used the maple pecan glaze from the recipe "Maple Pumpkin Cheesecake", however, I omitted the pecans b/c I had placed pecans on top of the cheesecake prior to baking.. I only made half of the glaze and drizzled it over the cheesecake. This has become my favorite fall dessert and I can't wait to make it again!

Stuffed Acorn Squash II

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2012
This was surprisingly very good. I prebaked the squash in the oven for 40 minutes at 375 degrees. Added mushrooms, canned tomatoes, and a bit of the following spices: Cayenne Pepper, Celery Seed, & Rosemary to the meat. Delicious!

Pecan Turtles® Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2012
My husband loved these. I thought they were too sweet. I took other reviewers suggestion to used 2 Cups Flour. Next time I do that but will also omit the brown sugar from the crust. I doubled the brown sugar, butter, and Pecans and used butterscotch chips in addition to semisweet.

German Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: May 21, 2012
This was my first time baking a German Chocolate Cake. I followed the recipe to a T. My cakes came out flat and dense. Maybe I over mixed the batter, I'm not sure. I took others advice regarding the frosting and made 1.5 the amount it called for. I had enough for some between each layer and on top, but there was not enough frost the sides of the cake. But it looked fine and was plenty sweet! Speaking of sweet, I thought the cake called for a lot of sugar! If I made this again I think I will omit some sugar and use more German Chocolate. I would have liked it to be more chocolatey. I used 2 ounces of chocolate for the drizzle. Everyone said the cake was delicious, so I guess it's a winner! ;-)

Gooey Chocolate Icing

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2012
Wouldn't call this icing. More like a chocolate ganache. I used 4 squares of semi-sweet chocolate. Next time I may leave out the water.

Delicious! Here are my additions and alterations: once quinoa was cooked I added half a can of both corn and black beans. I then added a can of drained rotel, green onion and lots of lime juice. Served with Cilantro Lime grilled Chicken and sliced avocado. Will definitely make again!

Baked Stuffed Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
My husband loved this. I made a couple alterations. We used cooked quinoa in place of the instant rice. Simply cooked up the meat mixture and once done we added the quinoa with a little additional water. We then used gluten free breadcrumbs with an extra a tablespoon of butter and two tablespoons of parmesan cheese. Right out of the oven I sprinkled mozzarella cheese on top just before serving. Next time I plan to make these without the chili powder and use Italian sausage instead of ground beef.

Spinach and Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
Very Good! Made this for a party New Years Eve. I used a 16oz bag of spinach and added about a 1/2 C more of everything else. Rather than Monterey Jack cheese I used a mexi-blend. I also used light mayo. Yum Yum YUM!

Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
Very good cake. I was about 3 TBSP short of butter so I threw in about 1/2 C sweetened apple sauce. Since I thought that 2 1/4 C sugar seemed like an awful lot, I decreased it to 2 C. Frosted with store bought cream cheese frosting. I received many compliments at work about how moist the cake was. I will use this again!

Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2010
Well I messed this one up. I misread the 3 oz and put in 8oz of Cream Cheese... Oops! So I just added another 1/2 cup of flour. Then I refrigerated overnight. I rolled out with pwd sugar instead of flour just b/c I had already added more flour to the batter. I rolled the batter out to AT LEAST 1/4 in thick. I baked the cookies for apprx 10 mins and the cutouts did not loose their shape. I iced and sugared these. My husband said they were awesome and couldn't imagine them with any less cream cheese... =)
