Moist and delicious. I used 1 cup white sugar and 1 cup brown sugar and 3 cups zucchini that I ran through the food processor. Perfect!

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2013
YUMMY! Made this for a pot luck and everyone loved it. Nothing left over. Lots of flavor and the sour cream gives a nice creamy/smooth texture. The only change I made was I cut the ground beef in half (just personal preference), added a little garlic, and baked it cover. I removed the cover the last 10 mins so it could brown on top. I actually served it in a crock pot so it would stay warm during our party and it kept wonderful.

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2013
AMAZING! So easy! Tender and delicious. Everyone loved it. Many of my guests asked for the recipe. I found red hawaiian sea salt at TJMax Home Goods in the specialty food section and the liquid smoke at Target. It wasn't salty at all. The only change I made was I added a banana while cooking as suggested by many. After I shredded the pork I added it back into the drippings and turned the pot to warm until ready to serve. Then I pour it all into a strainer to remove the fat and served with rice and hawaiian sweet rolls.

Shortbread Cookies II

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2013
OMG, SO DELISH!!! Melt in your mouth buttery. Crisp, light, and full of flavor. I love that there are only 4 ingredients and yet they taste so amazing. I used a cookie cutter and iced them with the Sugar Cookie Icing recipe from this site. I will be making these over and over again. Thanks! PS. I 1/4 the recipe to try it out and it made 1 dozen regular sized cookies. You can easily get 4 dozen regular sized cookies from the full recipe.

Italian Kale

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2013
Delicious! Now I can eat kale. I have been trying to eat more greens and have been trying to include kale but have been struggling with the bitter taste. This recipe is delicious. I added sautéed onion, 1/3 c water, and increased the garlic to 2 cloves.

Pumpkin Crunch Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2012
This was so addictive. I had this at a Baby Shower today and everyone, and I mean everyone, was raving about it. The sweet (but not too sweet) and salty crunch is a great combo. I will be adding this to my Thanksgiving dessert table for sure.

Chocolate Zucchini Bread I

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2012
DELICIOUS! Moist & chocolatey. This bread was so good. It was more like dessert. I didnt have the chocolate squares so I used 6 Tbsp Cocoa powder. I also used almost 3 cups zucchini because I cup up too much. I sprayed my pans with extra Bakers Joy and baked for 60 mins. Perfect!

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
This is AWSOME! I made this for a New Year's Eve Party and it was a huge hit. Every one who ate it commented how good it was and many asked for the recipe. One woman asked if she could adopt me :) The hardest part was rolling out the dough. I made 2 changes, not because it really needed it but because I wanted a thicker filling. I used 3 blocks of cream cheese and 3 tsp of regular pure vanilla (didn't have Mexican). I left the sugars at the stated amount. It was delicious. The honey is a must. I think it really heightened the flavor. Do not skip the honey. I cooked the bottom dough for 5 mins before adding the filling and I softened the butter for the top so the consistency was smooth enough to spread over the top layer. This helped create a nice streudle like crust instead of pooling in puddles. I baked it about 35 mins. Thanks for such a yummy recipe.

Creme Brulee Cheesecake Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2011
These were a big hit and really are award winning. I brought these to a cookie exchange for 25 people. As a surprise the host asked her friend, pastry chef, and cookie shop owner to come and judge all of the cookies. These won top prize. She said they were sinfully delicious, and looked and tasted like something you would expect to see on a cooking show. She said she has a new idea for her shop. They were very easy to make and took no time at all. As for the complaints of the sticking... I had no problem. I used Baker's Joy on the entire pan then put down parchment paper, and sprayed that. After removing from the oven, I let the entire pan cool completely. Then I put the entire pan in the fridge uncovered over night. The top did not get mushy at all. In the morning I turned the pan over onto a cookie sheet, removed the paper, then flipped it over onto the back of another cookie sheet, and cut it into bars. Worked perfect and the bars cut beautifully. I will make these again and again.

Easy Turkey Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2011
The BEST gravy ever! I will only use this recipe from now on. I used all the drippings from my turkey which was probably a little more than 5 cups (I poured chicken broth in the pan before roasting the brid). I used fresh thyme, rosemary, sage, and marjoram (2 tsp each) instead of poultry season, used 1 tsp. minced garlic instead of garlic powder, and used 1/2 tsp regular salt instead of season salt. This makes a ton of gray. I packaged up the left overs in 1+ cup servings and put it in the freezer for the rest of the year when you can't find turkey gravy.

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2011
WOW, WOW, WOW!!! This is the absolute best stuffing I have ever had. So flavorful and moist. I made a few changes but it still keeps the integrity of the original recipe. First, I left out the liver and I used sage flavored pork sausage and only a 1/2 lb. We are not big sausage fans here but still wanted to have some of the flavor. Second, I used fresh herbs and added marjoram. Fresh herbs do make a big difference. If you use fresh herbs, double the amount to = dried herbs. Third, I used 1 loaf Publix bakery Sour Dough 7 Grain bread, 1 potato roll, and 3 slices white bread. I used crust and all. I figured the grains would add a nice flavor. Fourth, I added an egg to help hold it all together. I did STUFF my turkey with this stuffing. My parents stuffed their birds and so have I. I have NEVER been sick from it. Your Stuffing must be 160*. Besides the egg, everything is already cooked and the bacteria in the turkey dies off as the bird cooks to the correct temp. I will absolutely make this again and again and again. Thanks :)

Pizzelles II

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2011
These were very light, crisp, and flavorful. I have a few tips that really helped make my pizzelles a big hit. 1) SIFT flour before you measure it out. 2) Mix eggs and sugar until very light and fluffy. 3) I added 1 1/2 tsp Anise seeds in addition to the stated anise extract. 4) Use butter. They come off the iron soft but as they cool on the rack they crisp up nice. I will definitely make these again. So easy and so yummy.

Soft Sugar Cookies IV

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
These are so simple to make and taste soooo good. The key to keep them from spreading is the shortening. I made these over and over with all butter becasue I didn't want to use shortening. And no matter how long they were in the fridge or freezer they would always spread. I gave in and tried it with the shortening and to my surprise, they held their shape. I added a little extra vanilla becasue I like the flavor and did not refridgerate it before baking. Rolled the dough into balls, rolled them in sugars, then used a cup to slightly flatten them. Baked perfect at 11 mins.

Amazing Pecan Coffee Cake

Reviewed: May 25, 2011
Very easy to make. Super moist. It is quite sweet so you may want to cut back on the sugar a little. I added cinnamon and nutmeg to the batter. I had problems with my topping sinking into the cake so I added 2T flour to the topping, baked the cake for 20 mins first, then added the topping. Baked 40 mins total. Turned out perfect. I made one with pecans and one without. Both were delish! This is a keeper.

Strawberry Torte

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2011
Absolutely AMAZING!!! So easy to make and looks so elegant. I brought this to Easter Brunch and everyone thought I bought it at a bakery. People were standing in line to get a slice. This cake is so light and fluffy. The key is mixing the heavy whipping cream to stiff peaks then folding it into the cream cheese. Instead of 2 tsp vanilla I use 1 tsp vanilla and 1 tsp almond extract. If you plan to add strawberries to the top you must use fresh strawberries NOT the frozen ones. The frozen strawberries are too soggy. They work but they do not look as good and the mushy texture is weird. Trust me, you will thank me later. I used a 10" spring form pan and added 1/2 the cooked down starwberries between the 2 layers and other 1/2 on top. Looks appealing when you slice the cake and adds extra flavor. This is a keeper.

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2011
Absolutely AMAZING! It is a little time consuming (melting the chocolate and straining the seeds) but well worth it. I brought this to an Easter Brunch and everyone thought I bought it from a bakery. I got rave reviews. People were waiting in line to get a slice. If you want to take a short cut, use Polaner All Fruit - Seedless Raspberry Spreadable Fruit instead of cooking down and straing the raspberries. It is all natural and made with Raspberries and fruit juice so the work is done for you. I used 2 cups crushed Oreos w/ 1 T sugar and the butter as suggested by others. All else was as called for in the recipe. I will definitely make this again.

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
So simple and tastes great. While putting this together for a dinner party I was thinking what is the big deal? It's salad with almonds and cranberries. Once you add the dressing, WOW! Once you try this with the dressing you will be surprised at how delicious it is. Everyone loved it. I mixed field greens with the spinach and used a little less sugar in the dressing, everything else was exactly as the recipe calls for. I will definitely make this again.
