Buffalo Style Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2006
In answer to the previous reviewer's question about keeping the crust from getting soggy. Pre-cook the pizza shell for a few minutes, take it out of the oven and add your toppings. Works like a charm!

Iced Mocha Fusion Shake

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2002
This rivals Starbucks-and lends itself to all sorts of flavor combinations. My favorite is to use 2 Tbs. mocha flavored coffee powder and then for the last 1 Tbs. use a high quality ground chocolate powder (like Ghirardelli's). Thank you Nick for sharing such a delicious recipe with us.

Grandma's Secret Pie Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2002
This is the REAL thing-I should know I've been making pies for almost 40 years. I use a food processor for 'cutting' the shortening in-then mix in the liquid by hand-you have better control that way-and you won't overmix and make the crust tough..... The results are spectacular-flaky, tender and easy to roll-even for the beginner. Do agree with other reviewers-refrigerating the dough an hour or more always makes it easier to roll.

Award Winning Peaches and Cream Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2001
I do like reading the written reviews especially from those who are kind enough to talk about what worked as well as what didn't-I hope I can return the favor as I may have one solution for the problem of the undecooked crust. I used a 10' springform pan instead of a pie plate. Not only did the straight sides of the pan seem to make everything cook evenly but I didn't even need to refrigerate it as I wanted to serve it warm with ice cream. It looked like a fruit torte-solving the 'pretty' problem, set up beautifully without refrigeration,, and was as delicious as everyone said it would be. Perhaps using a 91/2" springform pan might make the layers a little thicker if anyone wished....Hope this helps.

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole

Reviewed: May 25, 2001
This has become one of my most requested family recipes, and I plan to make it again this Memorial Day-Such a wonderful sidedish to go with any grilled meat or seafood-When other dishes are taking up the cook's time this is so quick, easy and delicious and is always the first thing to go. Be sure to double it or you won't have enough!

Irish Cream Truffle Fudge

Reviewed: May 20, 2001
This is absolutely wonderful, but I must agree with other reviewers-if you don't like Irish Cream why would you even try this recipe at all(?!) never mind reviewing it. Iused a larger pan which kept the fudge from being so thick. I reviewed this once before a few years ago and every time since then when I make it at least 5 people ask for the recipe! It mellows and tastes even better with time, however that's only if it sticks around long enough!

Chocolaty Fruit Dip

Reviewed: May 13, 2001
EVERYONE and I do mean everyone loved this when I tried it at a bridal shower for 39 women. I made it to take to a teacher's luncheon several days later with strawberries, melon, and pineapple, and it was gone before all the teachers could sample it. Lots of people pulled out their notebooks and took down the ingredients-(teachers always have paper and pen handy!!)and one person told me they had already made it and 4 people asked for the recipe. Thanks to Ruthie for sharing such an easy and fabulous tasting summer recipe.

Unbelievably Good Fruit Dip

Reviewed: May 3, 2001
This is my recipe and I am very glad people are enjoying it. The taste and texture of this simple recipe is totally different and infinitely better when the flavors are allowed to blend in the fridge overnight. Thanks to those reviewers who figured it out for themselves, and apologies to everyone else who tried this- I should have included that info in my original directions! And of course the cream cheese needs to be softened to allow it to blend smoothly.

Frost on the Pumpkin

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2000
This is without a doubt the best pumpkin pie I have ever made-and I have tried just about all of them after over thirty years of baking!! It is not the quickest to do-but is worth the extra half an hour or so in extra time-and is easily done in a few stages. My family says it is 'authentic pumpkin pie taste without the heaviness.' Absolutely try this-if you want certain success with everyone who tastes it. Incredibly impressive and very different from the 'run-of-the-mill' off the-back-of-the-can pumpkin pie recipe! YUM!
