Apple Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2009
simple, which i like. One of my first attempts at apple pie. The flavor was very good, however a bit runny if eating hot. Thickens when cooled. Friend suggested i coat the apples with flour before baking. will make this one again

No Bake Pumpkin Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
have baked pumpkin pies before, and liked what i've made. I've never tried a no bake pumpkin though. and never ever cooked with gelatin. sadly, the lack of experience with gelatin bit me. i dont think it set well enough and my pie turned out a bit.. runny/sticky-ish. the flavor is good, the consistency not. tastes really good frozen and with icecream. yum

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
First admission: I've never used this as a banana recipe. I had wanted to try and use plantain and make a plantain bread. This is the recipe i chose for my plantain bread. because I used plantain instead of bananas there were a few minor changes i made after the first time i made it. I now use 4 plantains, and increased the sugar to about 1 1/2 c. it turned out amazingly, my husband asks for this often. Thank you shelley for the bases of a new family favorite.

Dutch Apple Pie with Oatmeal Streusel

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
enjoy the taste.. the topping turned out.. interesting. flavor and texture wonderful, but all that butter melted into the pie.. when i cut into the pie it was a little runny. most of the butter pooled into the place the slice use to be. very buttery taste.. i like.. but i think i might need to relook at the topping and try that again.

Jamaican Plantain Tarts

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
in all honesty i think they tasted a bit like they should have. my husband didnt like them at all, he thought they were bland. im going to us this again but not booil the plantain, i will fry it instead, seems that keeps the sweetness about it.

Extra-Easy Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: May 4, 2010
loved this. dont make lasagna often because of the time. this was simple enough and taste was good. I used cottage cheese instead of ricotta... it was a little cheaper. added broccoli, onion and carrots with the spinach. next time will double other filling ingredients. Even my 8 month old daughter loved it.

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: May 30, 2010
i tried very hard to follow this recipe completely, but was unable to. Sadly my local grocery store doesn't have canned chili peppers. Grrr. I used a little more of the jalapenos (jarred not canned.. same reason) and cut up a fresh pepper of an unknown name. i know it to be extra spicy so i took out most of the seeds. because of the changes i couldn't help (and the fact that i took out most of the seeds of the one item that was hot), the dip was way to mild. i ended up adding a shake of a chili sauce. little shake, not much. despite all the changes i couldn't prevent.. the dip was very well liked. it had the yumminess of the jalapeno peppers without being overpowering for those who don't like spice. sadly, I didn't get to take any home. next time i will make some to keep at home too!

Elephant Ears

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2010
loved them! i was craving elephant ears like you wouldnt believe. it was good to find this recipe. at first i rolled out the ears really really thin because it said to do it thin. these were good, but crape like. i tried rolling them out to different thicknesses and found i liked them best at maybe a little less then 1/4 inch. this made them puff up a bit more. liked it both ways.

Sunday Morning Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
these were good. at least i liked them and my 11 month daughter liked them. My husband, who hates anything with Lemon in them, actually ate several of these. He says they are decent and he will eat them if i insist on serving them, but he wouldnt request them. (we will make them every now and then when i want my lemon fix). i didnt use poppy seeds. but only because i didnt have any. i look forward to trying them with the seeds next time.

Best Greek Stuffed Turkey

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
I made this stuffing part of this Turkey for Christmas 2010. It was my first Christmas married. We used Jerk Seasoning on the outside (on request of my husband.) and used this stuffing on the inside. I couldn't find Ground lamb for the life of me so we used ground beef instead. I'm didnt rate it when I made it because of the two changes were a bit drastic. However, its 10 months later, and out of nowhere my husband requested the same turkey this year for thanksgiving. He looked hopeful and very excited. He enjoyed it enough to suggest we bring it to the 'big family event' to share with others. so it was "Out of the blue remember and still love' good. I am not a stuffing fan. Infact, usually i avoid it at all costs. I enjoyed this stuffing very much. And also look forward to trying it again. looks like we have one of our first family traditions beginning with this recipe. Thank you.

Cream Cheese Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2010
didn't like these too much when they were still warm. taste much better when they have had a bit to cool. filling isn't gooey, its more pastry like. i found the flavor mild but good. am trying to think of a way to make it more gooey (as that was what i was wanting). didnt use baking soda, used baking powder but that was only because i didnt have soda. will use soda next time. ANOTHER DAY: My husband asked for these. Second time I made these was a charm. able to use Soda like recipe calls for. they turned out great. added cream cheese frosting to the top. Yum.
