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!

Sausage Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2014
I skipped the "pastry" part as well. I froze it uncooked, thawed overnight, and it baked up perfectly in the morning.

Kosher Salt Encrusted Prime Rib Roast

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2010
This was excellent! I made a 2lb. roast and had it in the oven for 2 hours - until the thermometer read 138. I let it rest for 1/2 hr. and it was perfectly pink. The only problem I had was with the salt. I think since the cooking time was considerably shorter than the recipe called for, the salt didn't have enough time to form a solid crust. I scraped off as much as I could, but the edges were still pretty salty. Will make again though... maybe with a bigger roast. (I also used "wet" salt.)

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!

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.

Baklava

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2012
Awesome!! I made 50% more sauce, and they were dripping... but it was sooo good! Friends said they liked it better this way because they were so much more moist than others they've had. I used a variety of pecans, almonds, and walnuts.

Cream Cheese Jalapeno Hamburgers

Reviewed: May 10, 2011
These were delish! I used roasted green chiles instead of jalapenos, and I added quite a bit of grill seasoning to the meat. Will make again!

Great recipe! I had a 3-lb. boneless turkey breast. Cooked it on high for 2 1/2 - 3 hours, and it was perfect!

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2011
This was AMAZING! Just the recipe I was hoping it would be! I doubled it, used 6 frozen, ripe bananas (squeezed some of the excess liquid out), and added an extra 1/4 c. of flour. I divided the batter between two loaf pans, one larger and one a bit smaller. The smaller loaf came out perfect, but the larger loaf sank quite a bit in the middle. I might try adding even more flour next time. Can't wait to make it again! *1/2012 - I added 3/4 c. of flour this time and both loaves came out perfect. *8/2012 - Added 1/2 c. flour... both loaves sank!

Creamy Summer Squash Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2011
This was really good and very thick. I used fresh basil instead of tarragon. It thought it really tasted like a broccoli cheddar soup.

Apple Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
Great flavor, but mine really sank in the middle due to altitude. I'd try them again, but I'd have to play with the amounts of sugar/flour/baking soda. Much more like a cake than a bar.

Garlic Broccoli

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2010
This was really good for broccoli! I only used one clove of garlic, put everything in a glass measuring cup, covered it with plastic wrap, and microwaved it for 2 1/2 minutes. Very good!

Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette

This is the best dressing I've ever made! My hubby (who doesn't even like salad) LOVED this! Just the right amount of sweet and heat!

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.

Sour Cream Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2013
This was delish in the slow cooker! I used 4 thick, bone-in chops. I added garlic to the oil before browning them, mixed in lemon pepper and thyme into the flour, and poured the pan drippings over the chops along with the broth. I cooked them on low for 3-4 hours and then kept them on warm for a couple more... meat was falling off the bone!
