Key Lime Cheesecake Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2015
I've recently moved to Florida where Key Limes are abundant and I have fallen in love with the flavor. This was an incredibly easy recipe to make - my favorite kind - however I did make one change. My limes were very small and two lacked the flavor I was looking for so I added the juice from two more. I served this as a dessert at a dinner party and received raves with everyone wanting the recipe. Next time I'm going to add some cracker crumbs to the mix and serve in puff pastry cups. Thanks for the recipe.

Roast Chicken with Rosemary

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2014
This is a fantastic recipe. I love the addition of rosemary and went a bit further by adding sliced clementines under the skin and one in the cavity along with a hearty sprinkle of minced fresh garlic. It's a 5star in our home..

Peanut Butter Fudge II

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2014
This came together in less than 3 minutes ( I'm allowing some time for the burner to reach the proper temp) It's pretty, and tastes wonderful. I've never made fudge that was so easy to make. It's a keeper for me.

St. Louis Pork Steaks

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2013
Well, I don't know from St Louis or Chicago, but this recipe is fantastic. The meat was tender and moist. I actually added some of the "sauce" to the veggies I was sauteing. Marcus, you turned me on to a whole new flavor/style of cooking. Love it. Thanks

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2013
Janet - Thanks for sharing this recipe. It is similar to may other breads, but I loved how moist the bread was. Hubby even commented on it. I didn't have sour cream ( I know - the key ingredient) but I subbed a mix of cream cheese and cream. It was wonderful. I will be getting some sour cream today and will bake another for friends.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2013
I'm 65 years old and have been a cheesecake fanatic my whole life. This is unequivocally the BEST Cheesecake recipe EVER... It's easy, and quick (except waiting the 5-6 hours). I will never make another cheesecake recipe again; this is my go-to. That being said, I've just finished making one and used gingersnaps for the crust ( added a bit more butter than called for) and subbed a cup of ricotta for one of the cream cheese bars. Did the same last time. I was concerned about the overflow aspect and added a collar of foil. Not needed - and nothing burned. I must agreee with Morena - If it fails you it's not the recipe's fault. The consistency was outstanding - nothing cracked. I did appreciate the waterbath mention. I think that goes a long way in preventing the cracking as well. This one will be out Christmas Dinner dessert and I can't wait. Thanks VERY MUCH Taliesen

Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2013
I've been using my own recipe for bread pudding for years now, misplaced it and needed another. I made my pudding from this recipe and I'm glad to say that I lost my old one. This is an easy, tasty recipe. I have some preferences with bread pudding, starting with a sweet bread ( Portuguese is best), adding a fruit ( none handy this time) and always using cinn and sugar. You can't skip the water bath. That's what makes the "custard" set. I haven't scalded milk since the 70's and the recipe still works fine. Enjoy it and Thanks for Sharing Mein

Classic Caramel Corn

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2013
Leave it to Karo to bring us an easy, foolproof caramel corn recipe. I used to make a recipe from a relative and couldn't locate for today's need, but this is much, much better. Already done and packed for giving (alright, I did have a few tastes). :-) Thanks Karo...

Orange Loaf

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2013
Just made this to take on vaca. I found the cake moist and flavorful. I think it will travel well. I used my favorite- fresh clementine juice and zest - possibly giving it a stronger orange flavor. I did add some pecans and can't wait for the others in the house to have as much delight as I found in the first of many bites. If fresh juice isn't doeable, try frozen orange juice - undiluted. Cut back a little on the sugar and you'll have the flavor without the trouble of juicing.. Thanks Carol for sharing with us..

Ginger Orange Glazed Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2013
I was attracted to this recipe because of the orange juice. I substituted fresh clementine juice (about 8) and brown sugar. I also added crushed red pepper and a bit more hoison than the recipe called for. When the chicken was done I drained the juices, and because the chicken wasn't "sauced" to my liking, added molasses and 5 spice, and cooked it down to a thick sauce. Grilled the final pieces and gave the sauce to pass around as a finishing touch. Everyone raved about them. I'm giving this a four because it provided the basis of a great recipe for me. Thanks Dee, for sharing this with us..

Crepes

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2013
I grew up with crepes and this is a close recipe to my Mom's. The key to this recipe is to get a thin batter and turn your pan so that it covers the bottom, also thinning the cooking crepe. While I agree, dessert crepes may be sweetened I would rather go for the basic eggy crepe and fill with a sweet. I made these, adjusted the recipe (little changes)and served them at a brunch for my daughters birthday. We had a savory egg casserole and lots of fresh fruit macerated to go with the vanilla yogurt filled crepes.. Thanks Erin for sharing..

French Toast Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2012
I followed the recipe pretty closely. I used walnuts instead of pecans and left out the fruit until I served it and then used macerated strawberries ( my granddaughter's favorite and easily available). I agree that 30 minutes is short to bake a custard (which is what this is) so I cooked longer as well. The result was wonderful. We added a decadent touch of whipped cream and enjoyed a lovely family breakfast on Christmas eve morning.

French Apple Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2012
Great recipe. Quick to pull together with everyday things in the pantry and the result is fantastic. I used homemade English muffin bread that was getting a bit old, my mexican vanilla and granny smiths. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. Guests loved it.

Cream Cheese Pound Cake III

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2012
This was indeed the easiest pound cake I've ever made and the best taste and density by far. I did increase the temp to 350 dg and had no problem with burning and everything was cooked through. I made a glaze for the top and my husband can't stop eating it. Thank you Nanci for sharing this with us all.

Aunt Blanche's Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: May 17, 2012
The first time I made this recipe I used a square pan instead of cupcakes. The resulting cake was wonderful - added a lemon glaze to the top. Now I use this batter for all my "cakes" just adding whatever berries I have on hand. I've used this for petite fours glazing the plain cakes and decorating with fresh violets, candied fruits, etc. What a wonderful recipe. Thanks to Aunt Blanche.

Caramel Corn III

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2011
I was looking for a different recipe, but made these for a fundraiser. They taste exactly like the Crunch-stuff in the stores. I omitted the nuts but no one noticed. I rated as a 4 because I too had to make a second batch of syrup and would have liked it to cover better. Packaged in clear bags and Christmas ribbons, they were a big hit.

Cranberry Pear Compote

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2011
I made this as an accompaniment for our turkey on Thanksgiving. It was a wild success. Great alternative to cranberrie sauce (which I also had made). Versatile recipe too - is great over ice cream. This will be a staple on my Thanksgiving table from now on.

My husband almost liked this. I didn't like the sauce, however, it was easy to put together.
