Apple Crumble Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2001
It was very easy to make, though my pie turned out watery, too. Maybe because I cheated and used a frozen pie crust. I also would peel the apples in the future because I found the peels too chewy for my taste. Can't beat the easiness factor, though.

Aloo Phujia

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2001
these were so easy to prepare and delicious to eat! the only ingredient i didn't have on hand was tumeric, so i just doubled the cayenne. yummy! and the indian flavor made me feel like an international cook with litte effort. fantastic!

Kitty Litter Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2001
what a hoot! this was fun to make, though by no means quick, but the end result was certainly worth it. i'd make it again. it looked real enough just lining a large cake pan with a small garbage bag and using a regular scooper. but knock yourself out w/the real thing if you want. the green crumbs are the best - i'd make more of these next time for an even grosser effect.

Baked Spinach Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2002
maybe i did something wrong, but blech! i made this for a party and was very disappointed with the results. not very flavorful at all. needed mayo or something. guess i should have read more reviews and tried the cream cheese trick. and it took waaaaay longer than 20 minutes to get hot.

Rich Tiramisu

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2002
wow. delicious and easy. i couldn't find ladyfingers at the store, so i used vanilla wafers instead. and i substituted kahlua for all the rum. it was fantastic, if i do say so myself. the only thing i would do differently next time is soak the cookies longer. i was afraid they would get too soggy, but i think they weren't soggy enough. my bad. overall, though, totally killer and it really was easy to prepare.

Amaretto Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2002
fantastic! so easy, yet so delicious. highly recommend this simple way to spruce up a box cake mix. it's very moist, too. yum! the only thing i might do differently next time is save some glaze 'til the cake is cooled so you can see it for a prettier presentation.

Roasted Garlic

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2002
i just felt like the temperature wasn't high enough. after 20 minutes, the garlic didn't look cooked at all. i let it cook about 20 more minutes, and it still wasn't very roasted. i ate it anyway b/c i was tired of waiting. but next time, i think i'll try a much higher temperature.

Cheese Ball I

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2003
this recipe was absolutely fantastic. easy to make and it actually tasted like a cheeseball you would buy. (a lot of cheeseball recipes are good, but you can definitely tell they're mostly cream cheese and homemade; not so with this one.) i laughed when i went to roll the balls, though. i got three, good-sized balls out of it. can't imagine how gigantic one big one would be!

Chocolate Bar Fondue

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2003
i took everyone else's advice and used chocolate chips and skipped the water. i used a bag of milk chocolate and a half a bag of semi-sweet b/c that's what i had laying around; next time, i'd probably just use a bag of milk chocolate as i'm not a fan of darker chocolate and that little bit made a difference. i just used one small container of cream b/c i hate to buy two for just a small amount more. and i skipped the coffee b/c i decided i wanted to put in some kahlua instead. (definitely didn't put enough in.) but overall, consistency and flavor were great even with all the shortcuts i took and my fiance loved it, chocoholic that he is.

Chocolate Mice

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2003
omg, these were so cute! they turned out well, tho i had the same problem with the powdered sugar as another writer. couldn't decide if i put on too much and should have just barely rolled them so it absorbed into their little bodies, or if i didn't put on enough; i should have poured it on to make them look furry. any recs on this end would be appreciated. the crushed oreo ones turned out the best. and caramel tails - what a brilliant idea! couldn't find the silver bullet things for eyes, so just bought some red, white and blue sprinkles and used the red or white ones for eyes. my fiance lost his guy card by adding little pink barbie sprinkles hearts (upside down) for noses. and if you're like me - not the sharpest knife in the drawer - you'll want to put the coconut in the food processor BEFORE rolling the mice in it - elsewise, you'll end up with shaggy DA mice. (they didn't look the best, but i thought they tasted the best; nice counterbalance to the strong chocolate taste). anyway, awesome! thanks for another great halloween idea. (kitty litter cake is another winner.)

Couscous with Dried Cherries

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2003
i thought this recipe was enjoyable. maybe could have used a few more spices. i sauteed some garlic in with the butter before adding the broth and other ingredients to give it a little kick. and i used apricots instead of cherries. tasty.

Shrimp and Andouille Sausage with Mustard Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2003
man oh man, i'm wondering after re-reading the reviews if i did something wrong. i just didn't find this recipe very spicy. overall, it was good, tho i feel my arteries clogging up as we speak. think i'll half the cream next time. and i also think i'll add some cayenne pepper to give it some kick. this could all be b/c i don't know squat about reducing, so maybe i messed that up (it took longer than suggested to make). there was nothing to drain from the andouille, and no brown stuff to scrape off the bottom of the pan (maybe a function of the non-stick variety), so that may have taken away from the flavor. or it could be b/c i'm from baton rouge and i'm just a cajun/creole snob. i liked it, but will make some adjustments next time. like cubing the andouille instead of slicing it so they're more manageable. and i added toasted pinenuts b/c i love them so much and will do that again as well.

Sweet Potato Pecan Waffles

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2004
these waffles were tasty as far as waffles go, but the sweet potato flavor really didn't come through. i couldn't find sweet potato puree, so just got yams and pureed them myself; maybe that was the problem. they were good, but not sure i'd go through the extra effort of working w/the SP since we couldn't really taste them anyway.

Toll House® Mini Morsel Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2005
i followed others' advice and added another 1/4 c. milk; could have used some more as they were still pretty dense. these weren't as good as i'd hoped when i read they were better than ihop's (my personal fave), but there were many variables in place that could have affected the outcome. so i'll give them another shot. when asked, my husband said he'd rate them 4 out of 5 stars, so there you have it. also, if you don't have children as we don't, you may want to cut this recipe in half; it made about 18 pancakes.

Southern Living Magazine's King Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2005
having lived in louisiana for 13 years, i was excited to finally make my own since i live in cincy and haven't found any i really like here. at first, i wasn't sure if i did a good job, but the more i ate it, the more delicious i realized it was. i made a few mistakes as a rookie - i took the advice of folding it together, then twisting it instead of jelly-rolling it and i didn't do it tight enough. so some parts were too fat and where it came together, too skinny. but otherwise, it looked authntic. i also split the sugar b/w white and brown and added some pecans as suggested. yummy. i will try the cream cheese filling next time. i also bought the icing but colored my own sugar. it was so easy, i just couldn't justify the expense of buying the colors premade. now if i can just figure out how to fill it with bavarian cream - my favorite king cake filling ever.

Boston Baked Beans

Reviewed: May 24, 2005
after getting home around six to find all we had to eat was a couple of metts, i wanted to make baked beans, but didn't even have any canned. decided to improvise on this recipe since i didn't have the 5+ hours called for. i made the sauce pretty much as is, except i didn't have molasses so i used dark corn syrup (!) and i cut the salt in half (could have used even less). added a piece of bacon and one slice of onion, chopped. after it simmered for about 10 minutes, i added a can of drained great northern beans to the pot and let it cook 10 minutes more. i had one portion, my husband ate the rest - he loved them! not too shabby for on the fly.

Blondie Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2005
these were pretty yummy and pretty easy. plus, i felt impressed with myself for making them from scratch. the only substitute i made was pecans for the walnuts because that's what i had. didn't use any sauces (tho i bet they're good); however, i did put some vanilla ice cream on them - delish! thanks for the recipe.

Baked Beans III

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2005
deserves 5 stars just because they're so darned easy and delicious. i took other users' advice and added the dry mustard as well as onions (that's how dear old mom used to make 'em). the only thing i would caution against is doubling the sugar if you double the beans. i don't think it's necessary and wouldn't next time; very sweet. but i didn't get any complaints, either. and everyone loved all the bacon pieces.
