Basic Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2012
This is okay, but I still like Chantal's recipe, from this site, better.

Cabbage Rolls II

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2012
I made these, however, I chose to eliminate the sugar, lemon juice,and Worcestershire sauce. I added extra tomato sauce, about a 1/4 cup, combining it with the meat mixture. I cooked my in a large pot on the stove top about 1 1/2 hours on med heat, slow boil. If I have extra cabbage leaves, I shred them and add them with the rolls. They freeze well, too, that is, if you have any left!

Bean Soup With Kale

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2012
I made this soup as written, but I did forget the Italian herb seasoning. I made half a recipe to test it out. It is fabulous. I wish I had made the entire amount. I did, however, increase the cooking time, because I like softer kale. I will make this again and I will still leave out the Italian herbs. Very good without, too.

The Best Meatballs

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2012
This is a tasty meatball. I, too, used milk instead of water. I have made a very similar recipe and used beef and pork because ground veal is hard to find. My mother either baked the meatballs first, OR she carefully dropped the raw meatball one at a time in the gentle boiling sauce, and did not stir until the meatball was set (about 30 minutes) The outside of the meatball is just as tender as the inside. Either way, this is a saver.

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2012
This was so easy to make and delicious. I doubled the wine and sherry and reduced it first to get a milder wine flavor, then I added the remainder ingredients. I also added more mushrooms because my family loves them.

Satiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2012
Excellent, excellent! It is so simple to make and has a wonderful taste. I made it for a bundt cake and the glaze flowed in the right places on the cake. At first I thought it was going to remain soft and gooey. instead, it hardened somewhat and it was so glossy. Love this. I will use this over and over. Thank you for a inexpensive and impressive glaze.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2012
I have made this cake several times, already. It is so moist, high, and a chocolate lover's dream come true. I made it once with 1 cup of oil, then made it with half oil and half apple sauce. I think I like the second version better. It's just as light, but less oily. To make sure the chocolate morsels did not sink to the bottom, I gave them a slight chop in the food processor, so I had slivers and half pieces. Perfect! Package weights are changing. Be sure to check the weight of the pudding mix on the box.

Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2011
These are very good, however, I still like my recipe from Cooks.com ...Best Chocolate Chip Cookies, that uses instant pudding in the mix. The cookies are never flat. They retain the "puffy" look.

Extreme Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2011
This is light, moist and has great flavor. I am glad to have found a good "scratch" cake recipe. Box cakes are okay , but they are getting so expensive.This recipe is the way to go. Besides, the cake has all the ingredients we have in our pantry. Thanks for the recipe. I definitely will be making this again.

Ghirardelli® Magic Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
I did not have graham cracker crumbs, but had the chocolate crackers which I ended up using. OMG...these are absolutely delicious. I call these a "Premium" brownie. The coconut is an added crunch. They disappeared in no time. I will again make these with the chocolate crackers. Probably the graham crackers are just as good, but when I am totally satisfied with a recipe, I like to stick to it. Thank you for such a wonderful recipe.

Self-Filled Cupcakes I

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2011
Oh, these are so good. I followed the recipe exactly as written with the exception that I put a tad more filling in each c.c. I had some batter left for about 4 more cupcakes, but I didn't want to keep oven on for just four, so I used 2 large glass pyrex custard cups and made 2 BIG ones. I didn't have any leftover batter nor filling...Perfect. Cannot wait to make these again. Be sure to check them before the suggested baking time on package because ovens are not all the same....Thanks for a different cupcake.

Bacon Wrapped Hamburgers

Reviewed: May 31, 2011
A good idea to pre-cook the bacon...Whatever is to your liking. For the "so -called experts," don"t take your self description seriously. Many may not like your advice. If you tear a recipe apart, and you are in the minority, then there must be something wrong with your method of cooking.

Best Carrot Cake Ever

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2011
This was a good recipe, however, I compared this to the one I usually make, Carrot Cake III from this site, which I think is somewhat better. Carrot Cake III is a five star with over 3,000 reviews. Look it up, you may like it.

Asparagus with Parmesan Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2011
I,like another reviewer, take out the asparagus about 5 minutes before they are done and then sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over and put back in oven to finish. No worries about the cheese burning. I make this without the vinegar, too. Good both ways.

Oven Fried Chicken II

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2011
This is a good recipe and healthier than pan fried chicken. I followed the recipe exactly as given. A suggestion, however, after coating the chicken, I placed the pieces on a wire rack, refrigerated it for about a half hour and proceeded with the baking. The coating adheres better if it is on for a while before baking.

Pecan Tarts

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
Luckily I could not find my pecan tart recipe that I made for years. Desperately, I came to my standby website. I cannot even explain how delicious these are easier to make than my old recipe. I had all my ingredients ready, except I missed the important part, the pecans. I thought I had them, but they were walnuts. I decided, what the heck, I will use these. The walnuts were an excellent alternative. Make them again? You betcha. I will make these with walnuts or pecans. This recipe had a better way of mixing the nuts with the filling before putting it in the cups. This is an excellent recipe and I suggest you make multiple recipes and freeze. Thanks Jean.

Whipped Cream Cake I

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2011
I made this and the texture was fine. I used lemon flavoring instead of vanilla. Good tasting cake. Quick and easy.

Lasagna Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
I gave this a four because I think ricotta cheese makes a better roll-up. I make a batch of meat balls and when I need them, I mash them and then incorporate with the cheese, etc. I also make my own sauce, but there are store bought sauses that are quite good, especially if you "doctor" them up. These are easier to serve without having to cut portions from a baking dish.

Rice Balls a la Tim

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
Very good recipe. I used the meat mixture and layered it between no cook lasagna strips and added my favorite veggie. Oh, so good. I also used a thin layer of ricotta cheese. I baked this in a casserole dish 350 degrees until bubbly. Thanks for the recipe, Queenbee.

Patty's Mom's Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
I have a similar recipe, however, I substitute some of the water with beef broth or bouillon cubes for a tastier and stronger base. I eliminate the sherry and still have excellent results. I also puree the beans, but leave some whole in the soup. Good recipe.
