Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2007
Gorgeous. I prefer to use a spring-form pan for my cheesecakes, so I doubled this recipe to accomodate using a 9-inch spring-form pan. I also baked it in a water bath at about 250 F for approximately 90 minutes (or until the edges are firm but the center still has a slight jiggle) then turned off the oven and opened the door to let the temperature slowly drop and prevent the top from cracking. If you're using a water bath, be sure to wrap the outside of the pan in tin foil so you don't get a soggy crust. Once cool, I piped a cinnamon buttercream boarder and garnished with pecans.

Pumpkin Raisin Scones

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2007
I'm giving this recipe 4 stars because of the fabulous flavour. However, the method was a little off for me. I've never personally used a scone recipe where you cream the butter and sugar. I could see it working for a drop scone, but if you want triangle scones like the picture I suggest using this method. 1.Mix the flours, b.p, b.s, spices, salt and sugar (I used brown sugar instead of white and decreased it to one cup) in your bowl. 2. Cut in cold butter, (I omitted the applesauce and increased the butter to 1/2 cup)similar to a pie dough method, but leave chunks of butter a bit larger. 3. Mix in the raisins and pecans (I used one cup of each). 4. Whisk together the eggs and pumpkin, then mix into the dry ingredients. If you overmix it, it might get a little sticky, but just flour your board a little when rolling the dough into a flat round (about the size of a side plate) and it'll be fine. 5. Cut into 8 wedges, brush with water, then sprinkle with brown sugar. I work in a cafeteria and my customers go nuts over these! Hope you will too!

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2007
This recipe is FAB-U-LOUS! It won me first place in a local apple pie contest! I have to say that I mostly just used the method and tailored the ingredients to my own personal tastes, but with such a different method it definately helped grab me the win. Thanks so much for posting this amazing recipe!!!

Raspberry Lemon Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2004
Mmm! These were lovely! I used the full egg instead of just the white, and definately sprinkled sugar on top. It adds a nice touch. They took much longer than 15 minutes to bake for me, but that could just be my oven. I used an easy-release icecream scoop to spoon these out so they were all the same size. Turned out really nice!

Barbara Bush's Chocolate Chips

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2004
I just finished making these;I needed Chocolate Chip cookies, and I needed them fast! They were so easy, and turned out really nice. Doesn't make 3 dozen, but it was the right amount for what I needed. The taste is nothing too exciting, but good. Will probably make again.

I really enjoyed this salad! I'll definately make this again, and will probably experiment a little bit for some variety. Supplies a super lunch for the entire week. Thanks!

Tzatziki II

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2004
This recipe is really nice. I reduce the garlic to 1 clove, and use fresh dill in place of the mint. I grate 1/2 of the cucumber on the smallest part of a grating box, and the other 1/2 on the largest, then squeeze out as much liquid as possible in paper towel. It's very close to my fav. restaraunt's recipe! Woohoo!

Easy Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2004
This was wonderful! Made a few small changes though: only added 1 clove of garlic, reduced lemon juice to 2 tablespoons, subbed in 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil for the tahini (I had none), and used chickpeas in place of the garbonzo beans. After that there was no reason to season with salt and pepper because it was perfect. Great recipe!

Tart Lemon Triangles

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2004
These didn't turn out as good for me as they seemed to for everyone else. I don't know what I did wrong, but these just weren't right. They wouldn't completely bake in the middle, but burned around the edge. Either way, I love the idea so I may try it again some day.

Best Ever Pie Crust

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2004
P-E-R-F-E-C-T! I wish there were more stars, cuz 5 just isn't enough. I even got told it was better than my mum's...BY my mum. If THAT doesn't sell this recipe, I don't know what will.

Donna's Cheesy Quiche

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2004
I just made this now (for the second time this week), and again, I'm blown away. I make the "Best Ever Pie Crust" recipe found on this site, and whip one up in no time. This was the first quiche recipe I tried, and will probably be the only one I ever use. I use skim milk instead of cream, and it works just fine! Next time I'll try adding some veggies to mix it up a bit. I am forever grateful!

Italian Confetti Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2004
This salad rocks. Thats all there is to it. I leave out the garlic and black olives and use whatever veggies I have on hand. I also add some oregano, cuz it goes so well with basil. The salad looks good, tastes wonderful is great for bbq's.

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2004
I couldn't believe how perfect this turned out! I made it for Easter brunch, and everyone adored it. I really hate using oil in recipes, especially so much, so I substituted the exact amount of oil with baby food prunes instead. It works like a charm, and cuts down so much fat! I also didn't add any nuts, and used a bit less icing sugar (I thought it might be too sweet). Overall, this was seriously awesome.

Apple Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2003
These muffins were really good! I took the advice of others and doubled the cinnamon as well as the chopped apples, and sprinkled brown sugar on the tops. Also, to lower the fat content I substituted 1/3 cup of strained prunes babyfood for the oil. (*Using the prunes does not effect the taste, or final product, but is much healthier! Its great for using in cakes and cupcakes as well!*)The muffins baked perfectly after 20 minutes, they weren't too sweet but still full of flavour and were a big success with my family! Thanks

Mexican Cream Cheese Rollups

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2003
AWESOME! And I don't even really like olives! With school underway, I needed to find some new recipes to pack for my lunches. So I tried this, and was not disappointed. They were easy to make, very satisfying, healthier than cafeteria food and SO much better than the ever-so-boring crackers and cheese! Carefully scaling down the recipe for one person was a waste, 'cause both my sister and my mom insisted on having it for their lunches too! Thanks!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2002
these brownies were awesome! i had a feeling that the frosting would be too much though, so i altered the recipe a little bit to make it more of a sauce. instead of just mixing the ingredients together, i had them over a low heat to make it smoother. i also subtracted half of the confectioners' sugar and added about a 6-8 tbsps of peach baby food. i served the brownies with a bit of icecream, the chocolate sauce and extra baby food to garnish. i got an awesome response!! thanx so much!
