Creamy Coconut Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
I have been searching for a moist coconut cake for a long time, and I think this is it! Some I have tried are much more involved and don't turn out half as tasty as this..the cream of coconut is located in the drink mixer isle of the grocery store, coco lopez is the one I have had the best luck with. Chilling this cake well is key to the success of the recipe..

Coconut Ice Cream

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2007
This recipe is off the hook good! I served it to dinner guests with a wedge of grilled fresh pineapple, and it was a big hit. The great thing is it looks very fancy, but is very easy!

Baked Alaska

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
I made my first baked alaska using this recipe as a baseline. I used vanilla bean ice cream, haagen daz chocolate ice cream, and HD rasberry sorbet softened, spreading one layer at a time in a medium tupperware bowl, freezing between layers. I baked 1/2 of Hersheys best choc cake recipe in a round layer cake pan that was the same size across as the tupperware bowl. I spread abt 1/4 c melted raspberry jam on the cooled cake and then put the cake, jam side down, on top of the frozen ice cream layers,smashing it in place with plastic wrap, and put it back in the freezer overnight. I made the meringue as the recipe reads, only I used 10 egg whites, unmolded my ice cream cake into a baking sheet covered with parchment( I covered the bowl for a few minutes with a warm damp towel to loosen) I covered the whole thing with the meringue, then back to the freezer for several hours. Right before serving, I put about 1/2 c of grand marnier in a metal gravy boat, ignited it with my kitchen torch, and poured it , flaming, over the alaska.It was a show stopper! I let it burn until all the alcohol was burned off, and finishd browning the meringue with my torch.. It took 3 days to make, but it was for my husbands birthday, so definitely worth the wait..

Lady Baltimore Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
This is a great merinque frosting. Very fluffy and light. I let the egg whites come to room temp before I whipped them, and after adding the syrup, I beat them for about 10 minutes. Awesome!

Raspberry Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2012
I was looking for a sauce to puddle under a slice of cheesecake, so I didn't want a thick sauce,I eliminated the cornstarch, used Grand Marnier instead of OJ, 1/4 c white karo in addition to the sugar, and only 1/2 c water. Cooked over med low heat, stirring , for 10 minutes.. I strained the seeds out , it came out exactly the consistency I needed without that gloppy, cornstarchy consistency..

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
I made this for super bowl Sunday, and it was a big hit, I made it leaner by cutting the meat back to 1# of ground beef, and 1/2# of Italian sausage. I also added 2T of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce for a smoky heat, and cut the chili powder back to 1 T. I used kidney, black, and chili beans. I made it the day before the game , and reheated in a big crockpot. It was a little thick, so I added two small cans of tomato juice to thin..I also omitted the green chiles and the bacon, did'nt miss them at all.Instead of bouillon, which is loaded with salt, I added a can of campbells french onion soup.We topped it with diced white onion, shredded cheddar, sour cream and fritos..Awesome!

Black Bean Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2012
I have made these several times with the following changes, 3T coconut oil instead of vegetable,1/2 C agave nectar instead of sugar and I added 1/2 C chopped walnuts with 1/2C 68% cocoa choc chips, I also cut down the cooking time so they would be more brownie like in texture. Amazing considering they are gluten,sugar and dairy free!

Raspberry Ice Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2011
Ok, I admit that I changed this enough that it doesn't resemble the original.. But it turned out so great, that I would like to share my changes.. I did use 1C of sugar ( I used organic ) and 3C of heavy cream. I scalded these two, then added 2 beaten eggs, which I tempered first.I cooked ( but not boiled! ) it over low heat, stirring constantly, until it coated the back of a spoon, about 10 min.Then I added 1t. of vanilla. I pureed 3 C of fresh raspberries in a blender, and then pushed them through a sieve to remove most of the seeds. I added this to the cooled custard,and chilled it for 4 hours. I used my kitchenaid ice cream maker to freeze it..VERY creamy, like a frozen custard...and very yummy!

Corned Beef and Cabbage II

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2008
I made this for St Patty's day dinner, very yummy. The oranges give it a kind of fruity undertone. I used a cooking bag and lowered the temp to 275 for about 4 hours. I sliced the leftovers for Reubens the next day, great!

Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
These were to die for.. After letting them set out at room temp for about an hour, I seared the filets in a screaming hot cast iron skillet for abt 1 min per side, I did use a little evoo. covered the skillet , LOOSLY ( too prevent oven splatter) with foil and put in the oven for abt 5 minutes at 425, meanwhile, I made the balsamic glaze using the addition of a little sugar and garlic as suggested by others, melted the gorgonzola under the broiler for just a few seconds..so delicious..

Poor Man's Caviar

A refreshing change from regular salsa. I changed it up a little by adding about 1/4 cup chopped cilantro, the juice of a lime, and 1/2 t dried red chiles instead of the hot pepper sauce..everyone loved, and there was none left at the end of the evening..a new favorite summertime treat!

Barbequed Pork Ribs

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2008
Great ribs! I cooked them alot longer though, about 2.5 hours,and added a little pickling spice to the water as well. I added liquid smoke to the sauce, and some spices, it was a little vinegary for me, but still turned out well.

Garden Fresh Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2013
I had a lot of tomatoes from the garden this year, and this was a great way to use them up.I peeled them first, and used twice as much garlic, sauteed garlic and onion in a couple tablespoons of olive oil.I had fresh basil and oregano, so I added about 2 T total. I added about 2 T of tarragon vinegar and 1/4 t cayenne pepper, also put the cloves in a tea ball so they would be easier to retrieve. Used an immersion blender and left the mixture chunky, like a bisque. I topped the bowls with grated Parmesan and a drizzle more olive oil. With grilled cheese, the ultimate yummy lunch!

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2013
This was an awesome apple pie! I used a old fashioned apple called graven-stein,and added 2 teaspoons of grated lemon peel along with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. I dotted the top with about a tablespoon of butter before putting on the top crust. I mixed the apples with the sauce after cooking it and didn't use a lattice crust. Brushed egg white and cream on the crust.. served it with cinnamon ice cream,delish!!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2011
Yum, Yum, Yummy! I used 1/2 brn and 1/2 white organic sugars, and half shortening and half butter. Next time I will try using all butter, cause I had to flatten these out with the bottom of a glass dipped in water. They hardly spread out at all in the oven. Chocolatey deliciousness!
