Citrus Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
Awesome! AWESOME! I used juice from the lime and orange as well as the lemon. For the topping I couldn"t find a marmalade made with seville oranges at the nearby store, so I was stuck using smuckers, which usually does really well with their products, but in the case of orange marmalade is really way too sweet, so I just added a whole lot of lemon juice and reduced it for quite a while...it tasted excellent! Loads if citrus flavor instead of corn syrup! My friend who loves cheesecake and orders it out regularly said it was the best he's ever had!*****Just made again (this time with higher quality marmalade:)), and the response was overwhelming!!! Another friend who loves cheesecake tried it and said "Oh my gosh, you are going to make me so fat! This is unlike anything I've ever tasted before.....yum!!!!" Last weekend I had made the White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake for this friend, which he also really liked, but definately not any more than this one!

Stuffed Peppers with Turkey and Vegetables

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2012
These are very good. Extremely filling and tastes for so few calories. I like to use all red peppers because they taste oh so much better...not so bitter. Baked them alone longer than the initial 15 ,I mutes because they still seemed pretty firm. I also double the mushrooms and add more tomato paste to make it more savory and help meld/stick the ingredients together (and never have an issue with dryness this way). For the chopped peppers I use the whole thing. With these changes I can fill about 5 -6 peppers. So yummy and so healthy. Thank you!

Clark's Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2012
One of the BEST recipes on this site. Everyone is shocked by how good this is. My family and friends especially love this when I add goat cheese crumbles instead of the montery jack. I mean....THAT is cooking for in your face flavor. Not timid at all. I sometimes add a 4.3 oz pkg. of Hormel picnic (real) bacon bits instead of cooking the bacon. It's an easy shortcut. I've made this for company who THOUGHT they didn't like quiche and totally changed their minds:) My boyfriend gave some to his father...who said he would just have a little taste...and he ended up eating a huge piece!

Sweet Potato Pie I

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2012
Top notch recipe!!!! I have made this MANY times. I add 1 TB lemon juice to heighten the flavor and a TB of flour as a thickener. I also use more sweet potato than the recipe calls for, my family likes it this way...slightly healthier and less sweet. I beat the sweet potatoes very long in my stand mixer to get them super smooth and remove all the strings, which stick to the beaters. This is a great option when you want a delicious and nutritional dessert!!!

Cream Cheese Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
One of my favorite pies of all time! Light and refreshing, not heavy at all, even with the cream cheese. I use a 16oz bag of frozen (Wymans---they are by FAR the best tasting) blueberries. Make sure to bake the shell and prepare the berry sauce first so they have time to cool. This is perfect for warmer weather and great for the fourth of july:) Thank you so much.

Tiramisu II

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2012
This is a wonderful recipe. I fold the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture in step two. I also layer this in a trifle bowl for a beautiful presentation.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
I love this bread!!! It makes 13 to 14 muffins. These are so healthy and delicious! The banana is the star of the show and not masked or minimized by other ingredients, yet is still banana BREAD. Thank you!

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
This is a great, rich cream cheese frosting. I usually find most recipes way too sweet and the main flavor that really comes through is the sugar.This has more depth, and meets a more sophistacted palate, IMO. I think of sugar as an element to bring out other flavors, rather than masking them.

Heavenly Angel Food Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
This makes a wonderful angel food cake that is hard to mess up. It turns out beautifully and my youngest daughter has requestsd it several years in a row for her birthday. I will make it for her 11th tomorrow along with some sweetened balsamic marinated strawberries and some fresh whipped cream, It would be great with many different fruit toppings, so I plan on making several toppings for everyone to choose from, including a pineapple sauce. I have used plain sweetend strawberries as well. Several recipes, such as the sweet blackberry brandy sauce on this website would be great too.

Sweet Blackberry and Brandy Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
TRULY WONDERFUL. I use extra brandy and strain the mixture of all seeds. I have served it with french toast and monte christo sandwiches, but the most wonderful combination was when I served it with a super dark fudgy brownie and some Graeters blackberry ice cream, OH.....YUM.

Pastry Cream

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
This is delicious!!!! Even better with a seeded vanilla bean (along with some of the extract). Great flavor....not just plain sweet. I love to use it as a filling for eclairs. I always pass my custards through a mesh strainer to make sure they are extremely creamy and free of lumps, even if they don't seem to need it. I like to be absolutely possitive that it will be a completely creamy indulgence for my guests.

Pastry Cream

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
This is good. The vanilla bean is critical. I also used high quality european butter. This is nice and firm when cooked long enough. great filling for eclairs. One time it curdled(I was very distracted) and I thought I would throw it out, but a simple pass through a mesh strainer did the trick. A bit sweet.

Rhubarb Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2012
Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum! This is great warm with real vanilla ice cream! Very moist, just like I have come to expect from recipes that call for buttermilk. It is by far one of my favorite ingredients because it usually seems to deliver tender moist products. I add 4 cups of rhubarb for enough flavor. I love the sweet/tart combo. Much like a coffee cake.

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!

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
Love this. I use milk instead of water, add a half teaspoon baking soda to the flour mixture (which I mix in the food processor) and double the lemon juice. A few extra peaches don't hurt, especially if they are small. It also takes me less than 30 minutes in the oven. Wonderful!
