Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
Delicious! Got lots of great compliments about it. I add chocolate chips and caramel for an over-the-top dessert.

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2012
Instead of cooking the mushrooms first, I did it towards the end in the butter you're supposed to just stir in. That way it all blended together into warm, buttery and mushroomy goodness. I also added fresh rosemary to bring out the earthy mushroom taste. All my guests loved it and one husband requested I teach his wife how to make it.

Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
Delicious! I can't stop eating them! But, definitely use unsalted butter if adding the salt or vice versa.

Spicy Shrimp and Grits

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
The base recipe was delicious. I made a couple tweaks, including 3 cups chicken broth instead of 4, fresh tomatoes and jalapeños instead of the canned, and skipped the oven step.

Grandma's Slow Cooker Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2013
Good base of ingredients, but needs some extra kick. I skipped the basil and oregano, and used cayenne, cumin, chili powder, and paprika with some Valentina's very hot sauce. Plus, added a small can of tomato paste, stewed tomatoes, and diced tomatoes with chilis. Yum!

Fresh Pea Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2013
Good base recipe, but I made too many tweaks to give it 5 stars. I used vegetable broth instead of water; added a shot of vermouth, a teaspoon of garlic powder, and some potato and carrot for texture.

Chewy Peanut Butter Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2012
Made a double batch - Used 2 cups brown sugar and no white, ..definitely would have been too sweet with the extra 1/3 cup. Baked for 25 minutes in a 9x13 pan - came out really tasty.

Beef Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
Fairly bland, definitely needs more seasoning. Used the crockpot idea and the meat was nice and tender. Used regular egg noodles (cooked separately) because I couldn't find frozen.

Molasses Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2012
Delicious. I used coconut oil instead of shortening to make them a little healthier, but did the rest as directed. Definitely making again for the holidays! Maybe with some nuts and or chocolate to add another flavor/texture.

Pretty tasty, but standard cookie recipe. Needs some cinnamon or something to add more depth of flavor.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2012
Good basic recipe, but I added cinnamon, allspice, ginger, and nutmeg to give it flavor. Next time, bananas and peanut butter. I prefer pancakes that are tasty enough to skip the syrup.
