Easy Peach Crisp II

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
Great base recipe! I added 2 tblsp of flour, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp vanilla extract & 1 cup of blueberries to the peach mixture. For the topping I added reduced the flour to 1 cup and added 1/2 cup of oats, I subbed the white sugar with 1/2 cup brown sugar & 1/4 cup white sugar, added 1/2 tsp nutmeg & allspice, and 1/4 cup chopped pecans & walnuts. Used only 1/2 the butter and the topping came out very crumbly and flavorful! Easy & delicious! Thanks for sharing!

This is a great recipe for seafood pasta! I used half milk & half heavy cream (same measurements), added 1tblsp of Cajun seasoning and sauteed fresh red bell peppers, red onion, and mushrooms with the green onions before adding them to the sauce. I served this over fresh red pepper pasta which made the dish that much better! This recipe is a keeper! Thanks for sharing!

Farfalle Pasta with Zucchini and Lemon-Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2010
I used lemon pepper & lemon juice in place of the lemon zest. I also added 1/2 red bell pepper & onion, 1 shallot, 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes & hint of lemon pepper in the veggie saute. The cheese sauce was way to thick so I added 1/4 cup of hot water to the mixture before blending it with the pasta. I also used 1/2 the box of pasta and sprinkled it with olive oil & s&p before blending everything together. It was very enjoyable!!

Easy OREO Truffles

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2011
I made these in 2 batches using Newman's Organic O's in original and mint flavored...both were a big hit! I replaced the semi-sweet chocolate with Ghirardelli bitter-sweet chocolate....amazing! Definitely use a food process for the blending of the cookies and cream cheese. It was easier to mold the truffles if you let the mixture sit in the fridge for 20-30mins. I also let the truffles sit in the fridge for about 4hrs before I dipped them in the chocolate. Using a double boiler for the chocolate made the dipping process pretty painless. Easy & tasty…thanks for sharing!

Delicious and lovely sauce! I made a few changes which worked out well: used shallots instead of onions, mixed 1 tblsp of corn starch with milk added that to 1/2 cup of milk in addition to the cream, and added 2 cloves of garlic to the sauce.

Glazed Apple Cream Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
Everyone loved this pie! It’s a great twist on a classic dish. I used 4 granny smith apples which were just right for the filling. I added 1 tsp. of cinnamon on the apples and 1tsp. of cinnamon in the glaze. I made a lattice topping and the glaze seeped into the apples…..yummy! I’m going to try it with a mixed berry topping next!

Perfect St. Patrick's Day Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
It wasn't the best chocolate cake but still a very good cake...chocolaty with a hit of earthy tones from the Guinness. It was easy to make and came out tasty. I used 6 tblsp. of Baileys in the frosting but otherwise followed the recipe as is. Everyone at the St. Pats party seemed to enjoy the cake.

Vegetarian Moussaka

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2010
Made this last night & it was fantastic! I used a mandolin to slice the veggies and roasted them as other reviews suggested. I also used canned lentils, added fresh red bell pepper to the onion sauté and used diced fire roasted tomatoes with chilies in them which added a great kick and lots of flavor to the mixture. I added 1tsp. cinnamon and Greek seasoning to the lentil mixture. I doubled the Béchamel sauce since I was using a longer pan with less layers and added 1tsp. of cinnamon and nutmeg to the sauce. It was not labor intensive just required lots of baking time. It smelled wonderful & came out delicious! This recipe is a keeper & I will definitely be making this again! Thanks for sharing!
