The Best Frikin' Party Dip Ever!

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2013
I made this and added 1.5c shredded cheddar. I expected a lot because of the title and reviews, but I thought the cream cheese was overpowering all other flavors. I did use mild Rotel as that's what my man likes, and certainly the traditional hotter one would have helped. Won't make it again though.

Sweet and Sour Pickled Beets

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2013
So EASY, so DELICIOUS!! I made the recipe before just as it was written and we loved it. I made it again recently, but w/ beets from our garden. I forgot about needing to save the beet broth from cooking them and couldn't as I didn't clean them fully before boiling. Having looked at other recipes that incl orange zest, I got the idea to use 1/2 c orange juice and a splash of water instead. They turned out wonderfully tangy sweet w/ the smell and gentle taste of the orange too. And they are so pretty. I'm giving little jars of them as Christmas gifts; no one will expect this of me so I can't wait!

Fresh Pear Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2012
I loved this and have made half dozen cause the feedback has been so positive. Changes: Instead of a top crust I used a brown sugar/pecan topping from an apple pie recipe on this site. 2) I used only 1/4 c of sugar for 2 pies plus the zest and juice of one lemon -- our fresh pears were so sweet i didn't need much sugar. The pie was light and refreshing and just sweet and tart enough to be a hit with kids and adults of all ages.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2010
I'm making this for the 4th time in 6 mo and because of the feedback I've received. I've made a number of lasagna recipes over the years and FINALLY my brilliant friend who is a fabulous cook told me this is "perfect". He's a foodie and expert cook so this recipe is a serious keeper for me. Once I made it with jar sauce vs. making my own and that'll do in a pinch but this recipe is well worth it if you have a bit of extra time. Thank you SO much John Chandler.

Orange Raisin Cake

Reviewed: May 30, 2009
I saw this cake being made on PBS and looked for the recipe. It's a great breakfast cake/meal, not too sweet! An important tip I got from PBS is to use a grinder attachment for your Kitchenaid mixer as it does a great job w/ the nuts, then raisins, then orange.
