Jo's Chicken Liver Pate

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2012
This was alright. I love pate, and usually just wing it. This is the first time I have really followed a recipe for it. I had some problems not getting it smooth enough and had to push it through a metal strainer. I added lemon juice, which I love in pate. I love onions, but for me they were too strong in this recipe. Thank you, though for posting this recipe.

This is amazing! We made it for fat tuesday. Put in a three pound bag of crawfish (after shelling). I would definately make this one again. Thank you.

Almond Cream-Puff Ring

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
For now I am only rating the filling. I make as stated, but with only 1/2 tsp almond extract. I have used this many times to make the filling for a boston cream pie. It is sturdy enough to hold up to the extra cake layer, but still so soft and creamy. I can put the entire batch between two THIN layers of yellow cake, making it the creamiest boston cream pie I have ever tasted. I then top with a chocolate glaze. It is always a hit and gobbled up super fast.

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
Love these. Made them for my friends kids and they were a hit (fighting over the last one). I doubled the cheese and added garlic and chopped green onions to the dough, used buttermilk instead of water, and added extra garlic salt to the butter mixture. Thanks!

Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2012
Soooooo Goooood. I don't use all the dressing. I suggest that you add it a little at a time, tossing the salad, until you have the amount of dressing that you desire. I also add a little less oil. Often use blue cheese instead of swiss. A wonderful blend of fruity and savory. Thank you so much! A wonderful salad!

Applesauce Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2012
I grew up eating this. A few of my daughters and my niece really love this recipe. It is a nice change from plain jello and the fluffy jello salads. I personally don't care for it much, though, but it is easy to make and different.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2012
These are pretty good. I wish the cookie part had a stronger peanut butter flavor. In my oven, 8 minutes was a little too long for my cookies. Just remember to check them because every oven is different. (And I have an oven thermometer.)

Super Hot and Sour Shrimp Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
My BF and I made this this weekend. He wanted a soup that reminded him of one he used to get from a Thai woman at a restaurant when he wasn't feeling good. We made a stock with the shrimp shells (used big, rather than salad sized, which we think was the right choice...at least for us) and added some clam juice and fish stock concentrate to the liquid. In the soup he wanted lemon grass like he was used to in the one from the restaurant. We used the canned mushrooms and also added some fresh shitake. We used a whole tube of Gourmet Garden's finely chopped red chilies because we couldn't find fresh. We like things HOT. This was nowhere near hot enough for us so we kept adding until it reached our desired heat level. We also doubled the cilantro because we love that flavor as well. Many of these ingredients are very salty. I was worried that our stock was not salty enough and a bit too bland, but when everything was added it was PLENTY salty, so I suggest not adding extra salt until the end. We loved this and he said it was just like the one from the restaurant. We had a blast making this together. I would have rated this a four but my BF was so happy with it that it gets a five:) Thank you so much!

So good. So simple. My oldest daughter started to do the "yummy" dance when she came over and I was making it. Thanks.

Monster Cookies VI

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2012
Well, the first several times I made these I only used a half cup of white sugar and they were delicious. I just made them again with the full cup of white sugar and was dissapointed. They were sweeter, so the peanut butter and chocolate flavors did not stand out as much, and I really like to taste those flavors and let the candies add the extra sweetness. I use bittersweet chocolate.

Strawberry Cake from Scratch

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
This is delicious. Especially frosted with a home made strawberry buttercream:) Just threw butter, strawberries and powdered sugar together (oh yeah, and a bit of straberry preserves). Tasted best chilled:) I think the frosting is what made this so amazing though, so this rating is based on the combined end product.

Peanut Butter Chip Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2012
These are very yumy. My BF said they were the best cookies he's ever had. Made them for a very large graduation party and they were loved by many young men (my nephews friends) and the adults alike. I find them quite sweet though, but that is normal for me.

Very good. The lime zest is super important. Regular limes work well in this.

Easy Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2012
These are easy and very pretty. The texture is very nice (for a soft, cakey cookie). My daughter loves them, as do many other people. I think that they tasted too artificial (guess I was just fooling myself by thinking that they wouldn't). I agree with the reviewer who said that they tasted like fruit loops, which may not be a bad thing for a lot of people.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2012
What more can I say? This is perfection. Added some espresso powder (sooooo goooood for adding depth to the chocolate....even if you don't like coffee). Topped with satiny chocolate glaze, sometimes I make the glaze with peanut butter chips, or a mixture of peanut butter and chocolate chips.

Buttermilk Syrup

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2012
Utter perfection. One of the best recipes on this site. I have also used a vanilla bean instead of the extract. The vanilla seeds are visable and the wonderful vanilla flavor sends this great recipe over the top!
