Cheesecake Supreme

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2014
Amazing. I made this cheesecake with no modifications and it turned out great. Super rich, super sweet. A little too sweet for my taste, but that's just me; my family LOVED it.. I used baker's (fine) sugar rather than regular granulated, but don't know if that made a huge difference in the filling, I just had some on hand and used it. I had to cook it (in a water bath) for about 30 minutes longer than recommended, then turned the oven off to let it set for 30 minutes. I let it cool in the fridge for a few hours before I served it for my son's birthday-due to my poor planning I couldn't let it chill overnight, but it was very close to being completely set, and the next morning it was perfect. This is my go-to cheesecake recipe from now on. No cracking, no sticking, beautiful! A side note, I'm a slow preparer so my oven had been preheated to 400 degrees for quite some time, which helped the oven get back to temp faster after putting the cheesecake in than it would have otherwise. I'm not sure why it seems so many had trouble with the cooking - if you wait patiently until it reaches the right consistency (I call it a firm jiggle, which is probably confusing), then it's set! The recommended time is simply a recommendation, all sorts of factors play into the time needed to cook. It could take way longer than planned, but patience pays off with this cheesecake. Love!

Pumpkin Pecan Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2013
Amazing pie. I doubled the topping, which my family loved. The topping made it a bit too sweet for my taste and I thought it detracted from the pie a bit, but I was the only one (of six) that felt that way. Next time I'll try doubling the entire recipe to see if I can make this a deep-dish pie. So easy, too. What more could you ask for?

Tofu with Pork and Cashews

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2013
I doubled the sauce on this and LOVED it. It was great the next day, too. I pressed the tofu much longer than 30 minutes so it really absorbed the flavor of the pork. I also used Hawaiian soy sauce, which has a better flavor in my opinion, not painfully salty. Delicious.

This was my first apple pie - I made no changes - and it turned out perfect! All four kids and the hubby loved it. Thanks for making me look good!

Chicken Puffs

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
I've made this several times now. The great thing about this recipe is that it can easily be played with to suit your taste. I used lower-fat cream cheese, eliminated the butter completely, added some chives and also used onion powder to bypass the complaints of four kids who hate onions. Everyone loves this, which is amazing for a picky family of six, and they taste even better the next day!

Ham and Lima Bean Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2010
I made this for my boyfriend because he loves ham and bean soup; I hate it. I was concerned that it I wouldn't know if it was good or not given my dislike for previous h&b soups, but I have to say THIS WAS GREAT. I'm a believer. I didn't change a thing and it was fabulous. Will definitely make this again! Thanks!
