French Silk Chocolate Pie I

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2011
Delicious! When I follow the directions, this comes out great. I don't recommend doubling the butter, which I accidentally did the last time I made this pie. The flavor is still good, but the consistency is quite firm. My husband still ate it, of course - but I prefer it with the amount of butter actually indicated in the recipe. :0) I like to make fresh whipped cream and spread over the entire pie, then top with chocolate shavings.

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
LOVE this recipe - we make the dough in the bread machine, then make pretzel sticks and drop into hot water/baking soda mixture on the stove for about 30 seconds. We sprinkle the sticks witrh kosher salt and bake them on a silicone mat for 8 minutes. SO DELICIOUS! We serve these with the beer cheese pretzel sauce found on this site.

Lemon Cake with Lemon Filling and Lemon Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2009
I thought this cake was very good. I was worried after reading some of the reviews that this cake would be very dense, so I did change a couple of things. I used cake flour (instead of AP flour) and I added a box of instant lemon pudding. I also added some lemon juice (I'd guess about 3 T.) to the cake as well to help balance the extra dry ingredients of the pudding. It gave the cake a light lemon flavor that complimented the filling and icing. I baked the cake in two oval pans (from Wilton) and they were exactly the right size! I had to bake at 350 for about 35 minutes or so, but they came out perfectly! I had nice thick cakes that were easy to cut in half and were elegant when stacked on top of each other with the lemon filling and icing. However, I could not get this cake to stay together - the layers kept sliding off! I tried skewers, but they were not heavy enough to hold this cake together. It was delicious, but not presentable! However, my husband and his cousin, the experts in all things lemon, loved it. My husband had even told me that I shouldn't make frosting that wasn't cream cheese, but he still enjoyed this lemon buttercream!

Hot Corn

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2009
I am rating this recipe a 5, but with the following changes: I don't add jalepenos because I don't care for them. Also, I use 60 oz. frozen corn instead of canned (b/c I prefer the flavor). I also add some garlic powder b/c otherwise it's bland. I mix about half the cheese into the sauce, and then pour over the corn. You have to work fast with the frozen corn because the sauce will clump quickly. I then add the rest of the shredded cheese and bake. So yummy!

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2008
I thought these were fantastic. So quick and easy - I started them at 9:00 at night and was done by 10. I got 40 cookies out of this, but I ate some of the dough before it hit the cookie sheet. :) I followed the recipe exactly except that when I measured the vanilla, I did it over the bowl and let it run over the edge of the measuring spoon (I always do this). I use Mexican vanilla for everything because that's what my mom used when I was growing up, and I don't like the other stuff! (You can get it really cheap at Mexgrocer.com) I rolled all of these into about 1 inch balls, then rolled them in sugar. I left 2 doz in ball form and baked that way - the rest I flattened when I put them on the cookie sheet and then baked. The cookies that were baked in a ball shape were thicker with a lighter, softer texture - semi chewy when warm. The flattened ones were much more crisp. I frosted the flattened cookies with cream cheese frosting I had left over after making carrot cake cookie sandwiches last week (from Martha Stewart's site). The cookies were great with the icing, too! This will be my go-to sugar cookie recipe. I love the flavor and I always have the ingredients for this. Thanks so much for sharing!

Cinnamon Honey Butter

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2007
WONDERFUL! The only thing I measured was the butter (since it comes in sticks!) but the combination was incredible. If guessing, I would say I used about 1/4 c. powdered sugar and 1/4 c. honey. I just sprinkled in the cinnamon until I liked the color. I whipped this for several minutes in my stand mixer. It was FABULOUS on top of the apple strudel muffins on this site. Thanks for the recipe!

Home Style Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2007
I really liked this mac and cheese. I doubled the amount of noodles per other reviewers, but I think next time I will use 3/4 lb of macaroni instead of 1 lb. Once baked, while delicious, it really wasn't creamy anymore, and I like my noodles saucy! I used shredded sharp cheddar for the sauce and it was wonderful! Once in the pan, I sprinkled a small amount of mild cheddar on top, then topped that with 1/2 c. Italian bread crumbs (blended with 1 T. butter). Baked for 18 minutes and it was golden brown and TASTY! Great recipe, thanks for sharing!

Apple Strudel Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2007
These muffins are INCREDIBLE! I am 5 months pregnant, and I just found my new craving!!! We added about 2 1/2 cups of granny smith apples with the peel, most in very fine pieces, though we left about 1/2 c. of bigger chunks. I also added some cinnamon to the batter. I had just turned my oven down from baking something at 400 degrees, so they baked in 17 minutes and were perfectly done. I made the cinnamon honey butter recipe (from this site) to top these, but they didn't need it - the butter just made them more decadent! I served these with BBQed pork out of the crock pot, coleslaw, and baked macaroni and cheese. A HEAVENLY MEAL!!!

Toads in the Hole II

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2007
We wanted to make something different for St. Patrick's Day, so we tried this because I found a similar recipe on an Irish website but didn't want to do the metric conversions. We wrapped our sausages in bacon and put in the oven at 425 for 20 minutes with a little olive oil. After 20 minutes, we added the batter and baked for an additional 35 minutes. I was disappointed in the breading as it didn't have much flavor. The sausage, however, was excellent. I just wish this dish had more zing.

Irresistible Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2007
This the 2nd year we've made this. It is moist and delicious and always a hit! We made it with powdered buttermilk and the results were still very good.

Mum's Irish Apple Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2007
I made this pie for St. Patrick's Day, and while I found the crust a little difficult to work with, it was very flaky and tasty, which I liked. I baked the pie for 45 min exactly, and I thought it was done, but when I cut into it about an hour later, there was a lot of moisture in the bottom. It probably could have cooked a little while longer. The apples were also a little crisp, but I like it when there's a little "bite" for the texture. Overall, pretty good.

Green Grog

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2007
This was an excellent cocktail! We halved this recipe and it was a big hit! One person with us is pregnant and so couldn't have the rum, so we separated hers out from ours and she liked it as well. We did not measure the rum, we just started adding and stopped when we thought we had the proper amount. :) Also, we waited until St. Patrick's Day to go shopping, so there was no lime sherbet left by the time time we got there. We used rainbow sherbet and still loved this. It did turn a strange color, but I still went to bed feeling very happy! Affordable, easy, and delicious!

Cheesy Ranch Potato Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2007
We love this as a different way to enjoy potatoes. Even my friend who doesn't like ranch thinks these taste good. I usually add more ranch than called for.

Remoulade Sauce a la New Orleans

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2007
I made this to accompany fried shrimp sandwiches and a corn/crab chowder. It was excellent on the sandwiches and added fantastic flavor. I would recommend this sauce to anyone looking to jazz up a shrimp meal.

Slow Cooker Reuben Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2007
My husband loved this. I don't eat sauerkraut, but everyone who typically enjoys reubens seemed to like this. I used sliced corned beef and just cut it up. It did great as an appetizer in the crock pot for my daughter's 1st birthday party.

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2007
This was very popular at my daughter's 1st birthday party. The two types of tomato really add to the deliciousness!

Cheesy Catfish

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2007
This was pretty good. I omitted the flour and the milk. I seasoned my egg with salt and pepper and I used Italian bread crumbs mixed with garlic powder, parmesan cheese, and Caribbean jerk to spice it up. I put the catfish in the egg and then covered it with the breadcrumb mixture. I put 1 1/2 T melted butter over my two fillets. I baked them at 350 for 18 minutes and then under the broiler for 4 minutes (I did each side of the fish for two minutes). It was pretty good. I squeezed lemon on mine and that added good flavor. I thought it tasted more like chicken than fish, which was good. A nice way to get good-for-you fish without tasting fishy.

Turtle Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2007
A great cheesecake... with some modifications to suit the taste of my friends. First, I made this crust out of oreos - I think it fits better. I think the chocolate cheesecake would be overwhelming, so I mixed the chocolate with a little bit of the cheescake batter and swirled it throughout the plain batter. I did the same thing with some of the caramel, so when we cut into the cheesecake, you could see the chocolate and caramel ribbons without overpowering the cheesecake. I did put in the layer of caramel and pecans, and it was excellent! I always bake my cheesecakes in a springform pan fit inside one of those silicone cake pans, then place the cheesecake in a roasting pan and put water halfway up the side of the cheesecake pan. This has always worked well for me - I get the benefits of a waterbath without the leaking that foil can do. Before I boxed it up to take to work, I used some Smuckers hot fudge topping to cover the top of the cake in a very thin layer, then placed pecan halves around. Finally, I drizzled what was left of the caramel sauce on top of this cake. It looked beatuiful! I am known for my cheesecakes, and my coworkers were quite impressed. Try this one - you won't be disappointed@

Dip For The Stars

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2006
This is a WONDERFUL dip that everyone seems to love. I always put the sun-dried tomatoes in the food processor so that the pieces are smaller. I serve it with the flavored bruschetta pieces you can get at the grocery store - our favorite is garlic parmesan. It's a great treat, but the ingredients are expensive, so save it for those special occasions!

Key Lime Cheesecake I

Reviewed: May 31, 2006
EXCELLENT... with these revisions! Make crust as described. Use 32 oz cream cheese (4 bricks) 1 1/4 C. sugar, 1 T. cornstarch, 4 eggs, 1 T. lime zest. Here's the key - 1/3 C. lime juice, 1/3 C. lemon juice. Absolutely delicious. Top with a pint of heavy cream whipped with a couple of tablespoons of sugar. Garnish with lime zest and lime slices. It's even better after it's been in the fridge for a day! YUMMY!
