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.

Screaming Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2005
Effortless and tasty. Served with butter, the potatoes were deliciously creamy with crispy skins. I will be making these often.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2004
I've made this a couple of times now and it was a hit at Easter dinner. I chop the onion finely instead of slicing it to make it more kid friendly and I grated another cup of cheese to top the dish. The first time I made it I used up all the bits of cheese in my refridgerator so it had swiss and jack as well cheddar. Either way it was delicious.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2003
I have made this several times now both in the oven and the crockpot--I love it! So easy and so tasty. However it can be a little on the salty side. I'll have to remember NOT to salt the roast before cooking (not that its in the recipe, but that's been my habit) and perhaps try some low-sodium version of the cream of mushroom soups.

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.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2003
Delicious! I used chopped peanuts instead of sunflower seeds. Very easy to make. Next time I might cut back on the brown sugar and chocolate chips a bit as the bars were a little on the sweet side for me. It should be fun to experiment with different ingredients.

Kentucky Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
Really delicious, very tender buscuits. Sometimes I like to make buscuit sandwiches and these are too delicate for that, but this is, by far, the best buscuit recipe I have ever tried.

Rocky Road Fudge Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2009
These were really yummy. I added an extra ounce of chocolate to the brownie part and substituted almonds for the walnuts. These freeze well.

Potato Tacos

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2005
These were easy and tasty! However, next time I will add some salt and pepper to the potato mixture. And while part of me would like to lighten these up by using low-fat cheese an alternative cooking method for the tortillas, another part of me is already thinking about how really excellent crumbled up bacon would be when added to the potato mixture. I will definitely be making/experimenting with these again.

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.

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.

Spiced Yogurt Pound Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2005
My cake fell in the middle! :( But I blame myself for opening the oven early in the baking to check on it. Never-the-less, this is a very tasty, moist cake. It is lighter than a traditional pound cake and delicately spiced. Those who like their cakes very spicy may wish to increase the amount of spices slightly. After trying it plain (which was delicious!) I brushed on a lemon glaze made with 1 cup powdered sugar and 3 TBS lemon juice. I will definitely try this cake again.

Best Ever Corn Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2006
Lovely cake-like texture. I like these a lot, but next time I won't add so much vanilla. Cut back on the sugar if you don't like very sweet corn bread.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2009
I have been on a quest for the perfect chicken pot pie recipe and have tried several. So far this one has come the closest to my idea of great, but as written, is a bit dry. Like other reviewers I double the sauce. I don't like a lot of crust so I just use a top crust. Delicious.
