Turkey in a Smoker

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2011
We usually fry our turkey, because we were expecting health-conscious guests, I decided to smoke it. We used our propane grill and used the indirect heat method with hickory chunks. The night before, I brined the 14 lb. turkey. It was on the grill at 11:00 a.m. and reached 160 degrees by 2:15 p.m. It turned out so moist, there wasn't much left! It seems intimidating, but you gotta try it! You might want to smoke a turkey breast first.

Marbled Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
I made this recipe using low-fat cream cheese and egg beaters and no one at the restaurant where I work could tell it was a "light" version. It is very good and not too sweet, just the right amount of sweetness!

Coconut Cream Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2009
For the longest time, I feared baking meringue pies until recently. Now, in our baker's absence, I've been requested to bake them! This is the best recipe, period! I do add 1/2 tsp. vanilla to the meringue for just a hint of flavor in the meringue.

Health Nut Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2009
These muffins were so delicious! To cut down on the calories even yet, I used fat-free plain yogurt instead of the buttermilk and substituted EggBeaters for the egg. I'll be making these again and again!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2009
The pot roast turned out amazing! It was so full of flavor and very tender. I cooked it on low for 6 hours. We had just returned from a late lunch of baby back ribs, and my husband had to sample it! He had three bites before finally pulling himself away from the counter! It's an absolutely wonderful, easy recipe!

Brownie Caramel Cheesecake

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
This recipe was so delicious! I followed the recipe as printed, and even though everyone loved it at work and it looked beautiful, the next time I make it, I'll make the adjustments other reviewers suggested. The brownie layer turned out moist, and I would've liked a bigger cheesecake layer, so I'll use three blocks of cream cheese instead of two, as others suggested. I'll also used melted chocolate as a drizzle instead of Hershey's chocolate syrup (what I had on hand) which was too thin and runny. To make a "lighter" version, I used Egg Beaters in the brownie and cheesecake layers, fat-free evaporated milk in the caramel sauce, and lower-fat cream cheese. With these changes, it tasted just as rich and decadent (and without all the guilt)! I will definitely make it again! I made three of these for a wedding reception, and they were a huge hit!

Ground Beef Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2009
This was a great, easy recipe. It was a little bland, so I added a couple dashes of Tabasco Chipotle Hot Sauce and it was absolutely wonderful! This one's a keeper.

Three Hundred Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2009
I can't say enougfh about this newly-discovered chocolate chip cookie recipe! The edges of the cookie turned out with just the right amount of crunch while the center was soft and baked to perfection! I changed the recipe amount to 12 servings and it yielded 3 dozen cookies which is just the right amount for our family! These cookies were awesome!!

Best Ever Cheesecake

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
This recipe was the best cheesecake I've ever made! I dressed it up by adding shaved chocolate and sliced strawberries along the outer edge. I'm throwing my old cheesecake recipe out!!

Not only did this cheesecake look pretty, it also tasted so delicious! This was the first time I baked with Splenda, and no one could tell; it tasted so rich! This is an awesome recipe!

Pork Fried Rice

This recipe was amazing. I used the chicken I had on hand and added a couple of dashes of pure sesame oil for an even more authentic flavor.

Banana Coconut Loaf

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
This was a very good, moist bread. I made mini muffins and they rose perfectly and deflated slightly while they cooled. I don't think the cherries were necessary so I'll leave them out next time. My husband doesn't like banana bread, and he's already eaten two!

Best Ever Onion Rings

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
This was my first attempt at making onion rings at home, and I was quite pleased with them! I used half a cup of flour and half a cup of panko (Japanese) bread crumbs which increased the crunch factor. My husband loved them, too!

Sugar Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
These are the fist sugar coated nuts I've made. They were very delicious and not overly sweet. I used only 1/4 tsp. cinnamon instead of 1/2 tsp. and got a hint of cinnamon, which is just what I wanted. Beware - they are addicting!

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2011
This soup was very good. It was the first one I've ever made. I used 4 Tbl. flour and used my immersion blender as "audryrub" mentioned and added 2% milk (that's what I had) instead of half and half. I topped it with grated cheese, bacon and sliced green onions. It was delicious!

Fruit Salad Abalos Style

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
I have been looking for this recipe for a very long time! I'm so glad to have found it. My Filipino friends in So. Cal. always served it at our summer parties. The only change to the recipe was I added a small tub of whipped topping, mixing it with the fruit, then freezing it. Take it out of the freezer 15 minutes before serving. It's a wonderful fluffy, frozen, fruity treat!

Salmon Patties II

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2012
These turned out so good. My husband loved them. My batch made 6 big patties. I used 1/4 cup of flour and 1/4 cup panko bread crumbs, which made for a crispier crust. Everything held together without any problems. Next time, I'll add finely chopped celery for a little more texture.

Simple BBQ Ribs

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2012
These ribs were amazing! I used boneless country-style ribs and used only 1 Tbl. of salt in the boiling water. I baked them covered for 45 minutes then uncovered and broiled for 5 minutes. We didn't miss that extra tablespoon of salt!

White Chocolate Fruit Tart

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2012
I made this for the first time and took it to a get-together today. I used a 12" springform pan because that's all I had. It turned out great! Everyone absolutely loved it. The crust tasted like a shortbread cookie. I can't wait to make it again with other fruits.

Pineapple Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2012
I halved the recipe and used three mini loaf pans (3 1/2" x 6") and they finished baking in 35 minutes. I used 1 cup white flour and 1/2 cup wheat; 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup brown, then threw in chopped walnuts. It turned out w-o-n-d-e-r-f-u-l!
