Pumpkin Gobs

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
These are awesome, filled or not. I even made them healthier by subbing 3/4 cup of whole wheat flour for 3/4 cup of the a.p. flour. Great result. Used this filling recipe : 1/2 cup soft butter, 1 cup icing sugar, 1 cup marshmallow fluff (about half a jar), 1 tsp. vanilla. Beat with a mixer until light and fluffy.

Butter Cream Frosting I

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2005
This frosting is AWESOME. It is rich and creamy and very tasty. I might suggest that people had problems with it being runny etc. because they did not beat it long enough in the mixer. Mine was creamy and fluffy and I beat it on high for at least 3 mins. (I also used whipping/heavy cream instead of milk.) Try this! Excellent on dark chocolate cake.

Italian Sausage, Peppers, and Onions

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2005
This was amazing. It was one of those dishes that you knew was going to be awesome as you were making it. I only had red wine on hand (as always!) and it worked out just fine. I also threw in some julienned zucchini to use it up and it was great. I served this on crusty rolls. Yum. The leftovers are calling my name......

Mixed Greens with Pear and Pecan Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2006
Yep- this salad is amazing! I, too, used homemade ranch dressing from this site and it does make a difference (and ranch dressing is sooo easy to make). Served it at a dinner party and everyone raved!

Whit's Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2006
Oh My Goodness Good! First of all, make sure your pan is well-greased/sprayed! After reading all the reviews I decided to tweak the recipe this way: shredded the chicken, added one chopped onion to the garlic saute, left out the chilies (small kids) but put hot salsa on top of some before baking, only used 2/3 pkg light cream cheese, added about 1 Tbsp. taco seasoning powder to mixture, covered with foil for the frist half of baking, then removed it. Sounds like alot of changes, but they are minor ones. The ratio of chicken mixture to tortillas (8) was perfect for nice big enchiladas. Delish!

Fantastic Mexican Dip

Yep, this is pretty fantastic! Like a taco salad, but better. Sort of healthy, sort of junky. Got lots of compliments!

Loved it. Did add a little bit of crumbled bacon after reading reviews. It was great. My picky 5 yr old even liked this "white pizza".

Simple Grilled Lamb Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2007
I was a little concerned about using vinegar as a marinade here, but took a chance based on the reviews....it was FANTASTIC! We loved these chops and so did our 2 and 5 year old children. They were super-easy to prepare. You HAVE to keep the onions and do this : make a little tray using two layers of aluminum foil. Spray it with cooking spray and place (drained onions) on it and carefully place tray on grill, alongside the chops. We cooked our chops on med-hi for 8 mins. exactly and in that time the onions cooked and carmelized a bit and man, they were tasty. Next time I will at least double the onions, they were that good. Also, I would not recommend leaving the chops in any longer than the 2 hours stated in the recipe.

Original Irish Cream

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2007
Delicious! Strong whiskey flavour, so if you want it less potent, cut back on the whiskey a little. We love it the way it is though!

Florida Strawberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2008
Wow- we loved these muffins too. I used juicy, fresh local strawberries and so had lots of juice to add. I also added about 3 Tbsp. of buttermilk to the liquid after reading reviews about batter being too stiff. They turned out perfect. I am planning on making another batch tomorrow!

Roasted Red Pepper and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2008
This soup rocks! I, too added, double the peppers, and strained the soup through a colander after blending with my immersion blender. Also, didn't add the thyme. We all enjoyed it.
