Angel's Old Fashioned Beef Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2003
Like many of the reviewers here, I followed OLIVERCADO's reccomendations (sort by most useful to see his review) and made some adjustments of my own to create this delicious stew. These are the changes I made: 1) From Olivercado: I increased the salt to 3 tsps, and reduced the pepper to 1/2 tsp. I added thyme and sage, but I used 1 tsp each of dried herbs instead of fresh (I omitted the Rosemary). I added 2 bay leaves, 2 TBS worchestershire sauce, and a can of tomatoes, although the ones I had on hand were diced and seasoned with garlic instead of crushed. 2) I cut up a cross rib roast for this dish and so I had about 2.5 lbs instead of 2. 3) I cooked this in the crock pot, having browned the meat and onion first. I cooked on high for 2 hours then reduced the heat to low for about 4 more hours. 4) Because I was using a slow cooker, I reduced the liquid. I added only a cup of beef broth, and a cup of chablis blanc. I usually use red wines or burgandy in beef dishes, but the chablis turned out well giving the finished stew a rich mellow flavor. 5) I used about 5 medium potatoes instead of 6 large. I used a whole chopped yellow onion instead of 12 boiling onions, I used 1/2 lb of prepared (bagged) baby carrots. The stew was rich and flavorful and the consistency just right--no need to thicken. I will definitely make this again although I will probably increase the dried spices to 1 1/2-2 tsps. each and add some green beans. Yum.

Spring Lime Tea Cookies

Reviewed: May 7, 2005
These were tasty cookies. Definitely best served the same day as they are baked. I agree with the previous reviewer who thought they lost flavor the second day. Quite good overall.

Candy Bar Fudge

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2005
This is a delicious candy that I will likely make again when it gets to be the holiday candy season. I took it to work and had several requests for the recipe. I lined the pan with foil before greasing so that I could easily remove the entire chunck of chilled fudge from the pan before cutting. I took the suggestions of other reviewers and used only 1 1/2 cups peanuts. I also returned the peanut/caramel mixture to the microwave for 30 seconds to keep it spreadable and that worked out very well. This is a very easy (and very good) candy to make.

Carol's Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2003
Definitely needed to spice this up a bit. I actually like things a little on the tame side and after the first bowl, I added more cumin and garlic, salt and pepper. Leftovers the day after had a nice flavor. Quick and easy, I will probably make this again, but will experiment with my own add-ins and spices.

Honey Comb Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2003
I made this for a Christmas day brunch and it went over very well. The cake was very moist and rich. The almond and orange is a nice change from traditional cinnamon coffee cakes and it bakes up beautifully. I will make this again.

I expected a sweet frosting but this was just inedible for me.

Krissy's Easy Chocolate Triple Layer Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2006
This was a tasty twist on pudding pie but essentially thats all it is--pudding and cool whip. An easy, chocolatey dessert but nothing spectacular.

Dried Cherry Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2006
This is indeed a good coffee cake. Nice flavor and excellent texture. Next time I will chop my cherries more finely since they all sunk to the bottom of my cake. I think this would also be good with other dried fruits--particularly apricots or nectarines. I might also try adding a little butter and flour to the topping mixture for more of a crumb-style topping. However, its a yummy recipe just as written.

Chicken Stuffing Bake

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2009
I didn't really care for this. The stuffing got too soggy and the celery stayed crispy. I won't make this again.

Best Ever Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2009
I am always looking for ways to use up left over buttermilk. This was a perfectly fine banana bread recipe but not "best ever." I have other recipes I like more. Definitely tastier a day or two after its made.

Pork Cutlets with Cranberry Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2009
I like fruit with pork and enjoy the flavor of wine in cooking so I thought I would really love this recipe. In the end it was just OK. Good, but not fabulous. It does get points for easy prep and quick cooking though.

Green Beans with Cherry Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2006
I only added half of the sugar called for and still found this dish way too sweet for my taste. However, I think it would be delicious without the sugar so I will definitely make this again with that one modification.

Carrot Bread I

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2004
I took someones suggestion and added vanilla. Very tasty recipe. I made muffins instead of a bread and froze the extras. This recipe freezes very well. I will make this again.

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2004
This cake got rave reviews at a birthday party. One guest who normally buys her child's cakes at a bakery has resolved to bake this instead. Mine turned out very moist. I checked it at after 50 minutes and found it cooked thouroughly. I left out the raisins and iced it with cream cheese frosting. Next time I will increase the carrots and maybe add some nutmeg. I used a 10x13 pan and was glad I did as I don't think the batter would have fit in the recommended pan.

Light Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2010
I liked this casserole. I followed another reviewer's suggestion and squeezed the excess liquid out of the zucchini before mixing it with with the other ingredients. Yum.

Dutch Cream Waffles

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2009
These were pretty good. I chose this recipe because I had extra whipping cream I needed to use. I followed other reviewer suggestions and added a litle sugar and vanilla. The flavor was good, but very delicate and easily overpowered by butter and syrup. My waffles did not turn out crispy at all but this may be the fault of my waffle iron.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2009
I have experimented with a lot of cheesecake recipes over the years and this was one of the best. Very creamy, dense, and delicious. Several people asked for the recipe. I used my own crust recipe and made a sour cream topping. Definite keeper.
