Chocolate Banana Cream Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
This turned out fabulous and it was so easy to make! My husband says it's even better than regular banana cream pie... that's HUGE! I used a graham cracker crust, but next time I'm going to make a Ritz cracker crust. I made this a day ahead so I dipped all of my banana slices into lemon juice and then put them on a paper towel to drain. They still looked great today and didn't have any lemon flavor. I topped the pie with shaved chocolate swirls - so pretty! Can't wait to make this one again!

Luscious Four-Layer PHILLY Pumpkin Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
I screwed this recipe up in several places and it still turned out great! I ended up making the yellow cake mix according to the directions (high altitude) on the box and added an entire can of pumpkin to the batter. I baked it in a bundt pan, and it came out perfect. I made the frosting without the pumpkin since I had accidentally used it all in the cake mix - still tasted great. I only made two layers of frosting - one in the middle and one on the top. I poured carmel sauce over the frosting and then topped with chopped pecans. It looked and tasted fabulous! My guests were even taking pictures of it!

Chicken Rice Balls

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2008
This recipe was pretty good... not a favorite, but I'd make it again. I used a pound of ground chicken breast and that was way easier than using chicken breasts and cutting them up.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies III

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
These were a huge hit! I doubled the cookie dough, but made the creme as stated in the recipe. It worked out perfectly! I might try to make smaller, more bite-sized cookies next time because these are really filling.

Creamy Caramel Flan

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2008
I've never had flan before, so I don't have much to compare it with. I liked it, but our guests didn't seem very excited about it. :( I had a really hard time getting it out of the dish, so I put it over a pot of boiling water to loosen it up. After a couple of tries, it finally popped out. The middle of it caved in a bit.

Cream Peas

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2008
I thought these were awesome! Even my husband who hates peas tried them and thought they were alright. The only change I made to the recipe was that I used skim milk instead of heavy cream. They still turned out great and I saved a few calories!

Ciabatta Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2008
I followed the instructions exactly and both loaves turned out great! I also sprayed the tops with water every 3 minutes and then brushed the tops with EVOO when there was about 5 minutes left. I will certainly be making this again. Thanks for the great recipe!

Peanut Butter Vegetable Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2008
Delicious! I made this exactly as the recipe reads and added a pinch of cayenne pepper. It really does get better as leftovers! Thanks for the recipe! 9/12 - This time I sauteed the chicken pieces in olive oil, salt, and a generous amount of lemon pepper. While the chicken was cooking, I added an onion, 2 carrots, and 2 stalks of celery. Afterwards, I added the chicken broth and potatoes and brought everything to a boil for 10 min. before adding the rest of the veggies.

Cashew Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2007
I must have done something wrong. I think I followed the recipe exactly, but this did not turn out how I thought it would. Mine was more of a soup than a casserole. The celery and green peppers still tasted raw when it came out of the oven, and the noodles were really mushy. I won't be making this again.

Sweet and Sour Pork III

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2007
This recipe was great. I also used chili garlic sauce instead of ketchup and a pork loin instead of a pork butt. Next time I might make a little more rice because mine seemed extra "saucy." Thanks for the recipe!

Tomato Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2005
This is incredible! It was a little sweet the first time I made it so I put half the sugar in the second time and it was perfect!
