Guacamole

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2014
I was never really a fan of guacamole until my husband tried this recipe. It is fantastic! We go heavy on the cayenne and cilantro, and sometimes don't even use the tomatoes. It is quick and easy, and tastes so much better than anything you can buy at the grocery store or even most restaurants around here! To keep it from turning brown so fast, place plastic wrap directly on the guacamole, and press it down to get rid of all the air.

Linda's Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2014
This is the only recipe I ever use for lasagna, and my family likes it even better than the lasagna from Olive Garden or our local Italian restaurant. I only make a couple of minor changes - I use Ricotta instead of Cottage Cheese, and I add about a half pound of Italian sausage in with the ground beef. I cook the onions in with the meat. Once I get that started, I go ahead and heat the other ingredients for the sauce, then add the meat and onions as soon as they are done. I usually make a double batch of the sauce, and freeze the other half to use later as spaghetti sauce, or for a quick batch of lasagna. I have used regular lasagna noodles as well as oven-ready noodles, and my family couldn't decide which they like better. That made the decision easy for me - oven ready is SO much easier! Sometimes I make this the night before (steps 1-5) and bake it just in time to eat. I think it is even more flavorful that way. If I am taking this dish somehere like my mom's house, I will bake it for 30 minutes before I leave home, then, after I get there, I will sprinke the remaining mozzarella cheese on top and bake the final 15 minutes. That works great too!

Quick and Easy Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2014
This is my go-to recipe for awesome brownies. True to it's name, it is quick and easy, and also very delicious. I get nothing but compliments and requests for more. I always follow the recipe exactly, except to please my family I use pecans instead of walnuts, or leave the nuts out completely. These brownies are as good, if not better, after they have been frozen. Just wrap them individually in plastic wrap and put them in a large ziplock - then you can quickly satisfy a sudden brownie craving without waiting for them to bake!

OREO Ultimate Turtle Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2014
Everyone loved this cheesecake! I used the exact ingredients listed, and made only a few minor changes in technique for this recipe. I needed two cheesecakes in a hurry, so I baked a 8" and a 9" at the same time. I lined my pans with parchment paper so I could easily move the finished cheesecakes from the pans to bakery boxes. I wrapped the bottom of my pans with foil to avoid spills. I used a modified water bath, reduced the cook time to 50 minutes, and left the cheesecakes in the oven with the door closed until they cooled. I received numerous compliments like "better than Cheesecake Factory" and "the best cheesecake I have ever eaten". This recipe is a keeper - I will probably make it again this weekend!
