Mom's Rum Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
I made this for the first time and brought it to a New Year's Eve party. I didn't have any dark rum so I used the coconut rum I had on hand. It was absolutely fabulous! I brought Cool Whip to serve with it, but no one wanted it as it was great by itself! Thank you for sharing the recipe. It's definitely a keeper.

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!

Coconut Cream Pie III

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2009
I thought this recipe was very good! I omitted the nutmeg and topped it with a light and fluffy meringue before topping it with toasted coconut. Delish! I will definitely make it again.

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.

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!

Coconut Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
This was my first time making a bread pudding, and it turned out great. I took it to our chuch potluck, and brought the pan home empty! I didn't have fresh coconut, so just used flaked. I will definitely make this again!

Pork Fried Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
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!

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!

Sweet Smoked Pork Ribs

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2010
The only trouble I had with these ribs was maintaining the smoker's temperature because it was cold and windy. Other than that, the meat was very tender and sauce was lip-smacking! I will definitely try these again on a warmer day.

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!

Spicy Cilantro Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
This was a delicious dressing! I cut the recipe in half as there are only two people in our household. I omitted the worchestershire sauce as others have, and it was still great. Next time, I'll try using low-fat plain yogurt instead of sour cream and see if it'll end up a little thicker for use as a dip.

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!

Fresh Blueberry Pie III

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2013
I was looking for a blueberry pie filling for a tart, and this was perfect. I cut down the lemon juice to 1 tsp. and it was great! Curious to see if this recipe would work with other fruits.

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!
