Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2012
Fabulous brownies that make me feel like I was eating something "healthy" ;) Only change I made was adding a 1/2 cup of Ghirardelli Bittersweet Chocolate Baking Chips. The brownies were soo moist and delicious! I was seriously surprised by how good they were! Thank you for sharing the wonderful recipe!

Baklava

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2012
GREAT Baklava recipe! I followed the other reviewers advice and made the sauce first and let it cool while prep & baking the baklava. I also used a combo of walnuts and pistachios. So simple & delicious! I can't wait to make it again!

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!

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
Great recipe! I made a graham cracker crust with a pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. I made a few changes the second time around and it came out even better. I used the entire can of pumpkin puree, doubled the spices and vanilla extract, and beat the mixture until it was lump free and very smooth. I mixed everything up instead of doing the double layer and it came out much more like a real cheesecake. Thank you for sharing!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2010
Great recipe! Bread came out moist and delicious. I added 1 tsp. of vanilla, reduced oil to 1/2 cup oil and added 1/2 cup apple sauce. I also did 1/2 tsp. of both clove & ginger. I reduced the sugar to 2 cups using 1 cup brown & 1 cup white sugar. Lastly, I made a melted butter and brown sugar & cinnamon combo and glazed the top while still hot. Will definitely be making this again!

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!

Balsamic Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
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. Also skipped the ckn bouillon granules and doubled the balsamic vinegar & cheese. I mixed the sauce with fresh garlic linguine pasta mixed with sauteed spinach, mushroom, onions, and peppers.

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2010
This bread pudding was a big hit at the bbq! I used criasins instead of raisins and added walnuts. Also reduced the eggs to 3 and used left over whole wheat french bread. This was simple & easy! Even better if served warm with a scoop of ice cream!

Cranberry Pecan Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
Fantastic muffin recipe! The only changes I made was increasing the vanilla to 1 tbsp., adding 1 tbsp. orange rind, adding a pinch of clove, and increasing the nutmeg to 1 tsp. I made 24 mini muffins and 9 large muffins. I also topped them off with Simple Orange Glaze from this site. Absolutely moist & delicious! I will definitely be making these again. Thanks for sharing!

This is a fabulous, easy, & flavorful fish stew! I made a few changes for our preferences: added ½ cup chopped carrots, 1 celery stick chopped, ½ cup corn; subbed 2 fresh jalapenos for the green chilies, sub veggie stock for ckn stock, sub red bell pepper for green, used canned fire roasted diced tomatoes; added 1 tsp. old bay, pinch of Cajun seasoning, 1 extra clove of garlic. Used sour cream instead of yogurt (what I had on hand) and served it with lime wedge & avocado slices on top. Turned out spicy, delicious, and very filling! Thanks for sharing this great recipe. I will definitely be making this again!

Irish Cream Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
Great way to make boxed brownies special. Next time I would add a bit more Baileys to the brownie mix...the flavor was not all that noticeable. I used 6 tblsp. of Baileys & 3 cups of powdered sugar and skipped the coffee in for the frosting. I used a little less than half of the frosting for the brownies and the rest for the "Perfect St. Patrick's Day Cake" from this site. I also skipped the toffee baking bits and drizzled the brownies with chocolate ganache instead.....yummy!

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.
