Great crust. I used it on a chocolate cream pie, and will be using it again for future pies. I did used butter instead of shortening.

Fudgy Chocolate Cream Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
Exactly what I was looking for in a chocolate cream pie. I did follow the advice of others and added 2 tsp. cornstarch and 1/2 c. milk. Consistency was great. For the crust, I used "Pie Crust IV" on allrecipes, and it was a great compliment. I made a whipped topping from 3/4 cup whipping cream and 1 Tbs sugar (I whipped slightly beyond normal whipped cream "stiff peaks" so that it was more sturdy and longer lasting in the fridge.

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2011
Very delicious, while also being light and healthy - definitely highlights the flavor of the fish in subtle way. I sauteed minced garlic in the butter, used fresh parsley, added salt and pepper to the fish, and baked at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2011
Very good. I followed advice of others and made these alterations: mixed cornstarch with more chicken broth instead of water, melted in regular cheddar cheese at the end, used half and half instead of milk.

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
Fantastic! My husband said it was restaurant quality, and it was so easy to make. I did use marinated artichoke hearts, and I also used 1.5t minced garlic and a dash of salt and pepper in place of the garlic pepper. Turned out great, and I will be making this again.

Make Ahead Lunch Wraps

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
This is a great way to enjoy lunch throughout the week. I halved the recipe and followed the advice of others, plus a few of my own additions: 1) caramelized 1 small onions with 1 green bell pepper and 1T brown sugar, added corn and green chilies towards the end of caramelizing process and added a dash of salt and pepper, 2) used 1 chopped fresh tomato with about 5 oz. salsa instead of canned diced tomatoes, 3) 2 cans black beans (didn't have pinto beans), 4) mixed 1/2 package taco seasoning into my cooked brown rice, 5) mixed cheddar and mozzarella cheese (that's what I had on hand), 6) added lime juice to the entire mixture, 7) served with sour cream. My husband loved it, and only suggested the addition of a meat as a possible boost, but it's great with or without meat.

Cherry Pie III

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2011
Amazing. Best contrast of tart and sweet. I did take a shortcut on the crust, and used Trader Joe's frozen pie crust, but I will be attempting the crust next time. Even people who weren't into pie thought it was amazing, and that it hits the cherry pie flavor just right - not too sweet, not too sour. I did use the revised version of this recipe that has more cherries (2 lbs), less sugar, and a bit more cornstarch, which was according to the reviews of others. Fantastic.

French Onion Soup V

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2011
Tasted great. I caramelized the onions (about 35 minutes), and used red wine instead of white, and really enjoyed the flavor. I just used more beef broth instead of adding any water. Turned out fantastic, and my husband loved it, too.

Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2011
Great! I used 1 lb. hot italian sausage and still added ground red pepper (I didn't have red pepper flakes, so I halved the amount and used ground), and the spiciness was good, and still mild. I also topped each serving with a few marinated artichoke hearts, and that really added a nice contrast. My husband loved it. I will be making this one again.

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
Everyone loved them better than the beef patties. I followed the advice of others by adding reduced sodium soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, seasoning salt, more garlic, egg yolk, red bell pepper, and a light coating of flour. I served them with lettuce, mayo, mustard, bacon (optional), and orowheat sandwich thins. They were a hit. I will make these again.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
Great, easy cookies! I used a regular muffin pan because I did not have a mini muffin pan, and they still turned out great. I followed the advice of others and put the reese's cups in the freezer, and the dough in the fridge.

Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
definitely one of the best soups I've ever had. I followed the advice of others and did not add any more salt. I also used 1 zucchini and 1 c. celery as an addition. I used 5 hot italian sausage to give a little kick, and 3 cans of beef broth.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
I followed the advice of others in the following ways: brownies 1) mix by hand (don't overmix) 2) beat eggs lightly before adding to mix frosting 1) halve the powdered sugar 2) melt the butter 3) spread on while the brownies are still warm Everyone's response to my brownies was, "These are the BEST brownies." Appropriately named, and, yes, the consistency is a hybrid of brownie, fudge, and cake, and I think it's an excellent consistency for brownies.

White Chili with Ground Turkey

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2010
This is my family's FAVORITE recipe of life. It is such good comfort food and it smells amazing while you are making it. I make this about once a week by popular demand. Do not use 5 cups chicken broth; 3 cups is as much as you will need for a good consistency. I suggest that you sautee everything in a large skillet and then transfer to the pot when you need to add the chicken broth and beans, since it seems to sautee everything a lot quicker. I serve it with monterey jack cheese sprinkled on top, with avocado, and sour cream (and occasionally with warmed tortillas). Try it with these toppings - it's magical and makes you happy to be home eating dinner :)
