Chocolate Pudding Cake II

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2011
This was outstanding! The ONLY change I made was to use 1/2 brown sugar and 1/2 white sugar in the topping instead of all brown sugar (personal preference). It was rich and fudge-y and after letting it sit a few minutes, the sauce was wonderful and thick. Dee-lish!!!!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2011
I am giving this 5 stars for potential and great "bones"! I was confused by some of the reviews which said they only needed 30 minutes in the oven at a high temperature. Mine were nowhere near brown and crunchy and carmelized, but my extended family loved them! There were only 3 sprouts left in the pan! I am calling this a success and will definitely do this again (although, maybe not on Thanksgiving because the oven is needed for so many other things! My bad!).

Anna's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2011
My ONLY difference was to use mini M&M baking bits - I did not have chocolate chips. They were great - soft, chewy, great texture. Do not overbake! Remember they continue to bake on the pan. Take them out at exactly 7 minutes, let them cool one minute, remove. Perfect!

Grilled Lemon Herb Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2011
Husband liked it, I thought it was just OK. Marinated for 2 days as written, cooked it on my indoor grill. I don't know... it was still tough... maybe overcooked? I just can't make a good pork chop! *sob*

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
WOW! This soup was amazing. Hubby proclaimed it both "awesome" and "outstanding". I made it as directed except I used fresh broccoli. It was thick and delicious. I know it will be in regular rotation. NOTE to those who are adding condensed soup, yuk! It doesn't need it for taste, and it's not necessary. It thickens beautifully and tastes great. Condensed soups are artificial and so not needed here. Obviously IMO. Thanks.

Half and Halfs

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
Great idea, fun cookies. My substitution was to use shortening. The family thought they were cute and gobbled them up.

Burmese Chicken Curry (Gaeng Gai Bama)

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
I don't like to review a recipe when I have changed it, but this one had great "bones" and we enjoyed it very much. Did not use the shallots, fresh tomatoes, or cilantro, but DID use the curry paste, curry powder, and coconut milk as directed; I also used a small can of diced tomatoes instead. Thickened it up with a little flour in the cocount milk and stirred it in. Served it with sticky rice, and cole slaw. Will make again! Dee-lish.

Festive Shortbread Logs

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2010
I used the basic shortbread recipe; did not dip them this time (I may do so for the next batch). The basic recipe is delicious, very tender and true to the "shortbread" taste we are looking for at Christmas. This is a very versatile recipe; you could decorate them in a number of ways. Delicious.

Gingerbread Boys

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
Trying this new recipe as my old gingerbread men recipe leaves me disappointed. This was very nice; my substitutions were brown sugar for the white, molasses for the corn syrup, and omitted the orange. Next time I will cut the sugar - still very sweet. But 5 stars nonetheless. Thanks!!

Foil-Pack Taco Chicken Dinner

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2010
Good basic place to start. Instead of individual foil packets, I layered it in a casserole dish. I sliced the potatoes as thinly as I could, but they were still not cooked all the way through after 60 minutes. Kind of like waiting for the scalloped potatoes! Same thing! I'd suggest poking them and microwaving them to give them a head start, then perhaps slicing them and continuing on with the recipe. Will probably make this again. :)

PHILADELPHIA® 3-STEP® Key Lime Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
Easy and delicious. I followed the recipe but doubled up on the lime zest and juice. I decorated with Cool Whip I piped from a piping bag, and grated lime peel. It was beautiful. Everyone loved it.

Zucchini Pineapple Loaf

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2010
This was a basic, simple zucchini loaf. It was tender and rose well. I did not add the walnuts due to allergies. It seemed a bit dry going into the pan - was concerned, but seemed to bake up OK. Will make again.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2010
Easy to prepare, fun to roll. I used all the cream of tartar called for, and I found them too salty. Next time, I may omit it altogether or at least reduce it. I will certainly make them again. **UPDATE**: I made these again because hubby asked for them, and put in 1 teaspoon of lemon juice instead of the cream of tartar. Very good.

Bacon Cheese Frittata

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2010
Very quick and easy to assemble. Family loved it (honestly, I didn't think they'd go for breakfast at dinner but they did!). Served it with warm bread and a green salad. Could be easily adapted to whatever veggies you have.

Grilled Caribbean Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2010
Family loved this. Very tender chicken, but not a lot of flavor. I will tweak this and try again. Thanks.

Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2010
UPDATE: Please read before making these muffins.... This recipe is truly for those of us who are diabetic, and/or are watching carb intake; because of the lack of added fat and the addition of the applesauce, the texture may take some getting used to. But for those of us who need this recipe to work, it certainly does. Per the reviews, I cut the applesauce in HALF, and doubled the spices. This took care of the "too moist" problem. I also added a tablespoon of ground flax seed for additional fiber. They were delicious. As stated, if you DON'T need to watch your fat, carbs, and calories please choose another pumpkin muffin recipe with full fat. For those of us who need this recipe, I, for one, was not disappointed.

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2010
Delicious! The whole family loved these. I took some of the tips from the reviews and added more bread crumbs than called for. I actually put the beans in the food processor - much easier! Then I processed the onion and garlic, and drained it before adding to the beans. I also made the patties (8 for a double recipe) thinner, and froze them prior to cooking. This made them hold together as the mixture was quite soft. I pan fried them frozen, about 10 minutes on each side. I served them with all the condiments I would normally use on hamburgers, and they were very tasty. Thank you!!

Striped Delight

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
Cannot give less than 5 stars. Everyone loved this at Christmas Day dinner. I've made it before and learned that if you wrap a hot washcloth on the bottom of the pan, the slices come out easier (I found this to be a better tip than freezing it for an hour). This dessert is very rich so I'd suggest starting with a small piece and going back for more, rather than serving huge slices at first. I used only 25 Oreo cookies and 3 tablespoons of melted butter - worked fine.

Raspberry Ribbons

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
Very simple and lovely cookie. Looks like the picture! I took many of the tips offered by others (do not make long logs, do not make the indent too deep, do not move them too soon, etc.). I sliced them on the diagonal, and they turned out very pretty and had nice flavour. I used seedless raspberry jam. I know my family will come home and devour them tonight!!

English Trifle to Die For

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
Can't give it less than 5 stars, but I did have a few issues. First of all, the custard was too thin as written; if you can whisk in a tablespoon or two of cornstarch, I'm sure that would help it thicken. I had to chill the custard for HOURS before it was even near thick enough to layer on. When I poured it on, it drizzled all the way to the bottom and covered up all the pretty layers I'd made. *insert boo boo lip here* but I did garnish it with a few leftover fresh raspberries and some chopped up Skor chocolate bars, delicious. My husband and most dinner guests loved it! May make again, but need to tweak that custard. Daughter suggested homemade PUDDING instead of custard; will search out some recipes. Thanks!!
