Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2010
Really good. I made a couple changes based on all of the reviews. I wanted more of the pumpkin filling but only had one pkg of cream cheese, so I halved the crust mixture and kept the rest the same. I baked in a parchment paper lined loaf pan. Came out easily and cleanly and cut into thick little cubes...perfect little bite sized treats. One note, I did not allow the crust to cool before pouring in the cheesecake batter...didn't seem necessary. Also because of thickness cooked for about 42 minutes. Will make again, next time I think I won't reserve any crust for the topping, kind of unnecessary in my opinion and the flour makes it not as nice looking and hides the pretty cheesecake color underneath

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
Love this recipe I have made it many times. Yes it is a bit thicker filling but my everyone I have made it for has complimented it for being so thick. Only thing I change is vegetables according to what I have on hand (sweet potatoes and broccoli are favs) and add a little seasoning (rosemary, garlic powder, bay leaf). I have also made 2 pies at a time and froze one. Just move the frozen one into the fridge in the morning. It takes almost double the time to cook but it tastes exactly like it was made fresh. Hooray!

Quick and Almost-Professional Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2010
I rarely give out 5 star ratings but this deserves it. Perfect consistency, buttery taste. Overheard someone saying "this is the best icing i've ever had in my life" at a recent bday party I made the cake for. Enough said.

Basil-Lime Sorbet

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2010
Really interesting taste! For basil lovers only. 6 smallish limes ended up making 3/4 cup juice. I substituted Splenda for the sugar the second time I made this and couldn't taste a difference. Let freeze overnight and had a hard time blending the frozen pieces at the end maybe I just need a more powerful blender. Also, the serving sizes would have to be ultra tiny to get 8 out of the recipe. Thanks for sharing Mark!

Mexican Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2010
Very good. Texture was a little odd to me...almost like a souffle, so the second time i made it i cut the zucchini into small slices and i liked it much better than with shredded zucchini.

i was really dissapointed at the end result of this recipe. i followed the instructions exactly and when i went the break the bark the 2 layers seperated on every piece. i had planned on giving them as gifts but i will have to make something else now. still tasted good, just didn't look as nice.

Awesome Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
These were my first attempt at eggrolls and they were awesome! I followed the recipe exactly except for substituting firm tofu for the shrimp. I also baked the rolls instead as other reviewers had suggested and used the broiler in the last couple minutes and they turned out super crispy you would never know they weren't fried. I would recomment sealing the edges completely instead of just the corners if you are going to fry because i didn't have a tight seal.

The Best Vegetarian Chili in the World

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2009
This recipe is amazing! Even the meat eaters in my household devoured this. Does make a TON of chili, it's probably closer tom around 12 servings but it freezes great. I followed it exactly except substituted diced gardenburger griller veggie patties for the crumbles because my grocery was out. Next time I will definitely use the crumbles because the texture is much closer to ground beef.

Strawberry Pie II

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2009
Have made this pie twice in the past week. Followed all of Misty and the bunnies suggestions and used only 1/4 of the strawberries for the sauce and reduced the sugar and water. The first pie I followed her recommendation and boiled the mixture for 2-3 minutes and it ended up a little too runny in the end. The second time I made this I let it boil for a bit longer and turned out perfect.
