Key Lime Martini

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2014
Yum! This drink is decadent! I upped the measurements to 2 oz each. It filled my martini glass up to the rim :) I didn't have any vanilla flavored vodka so I added a splash of vanilla extract to Sky vodka instead. It worked just fine. I didn't have any trouble with the cream separating but I also keep my martini glass and shaker in the freezer until I need it. I'm not sure if that makes a difference. My drink also turned out white in color as opposed to the clear martini pictured in the recipe. Anyhow, I would recommend this drink to anyone who enjoys key lime pie. It tastes just like it!

Cream Cheese Cookies I

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2014
Very tasty cookie with the full 8 oz of cream cheese used instead of 3. I also added a tsp of baking soda to the mix to make them puff up a bit and opted for 1 tsp of vanilla instead of 1/2. I'm a ridiculous vanilla fan. I always double to amount. They're probably perfectly fine without the extra, too. I added semi and milk chocolate chips to the dough while mixing and dropped by large tsp. They turned out great. Both my son and husband loved them in their lunches :)

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2013
Really yummy cake! I substituted coconut sugar for the white sugar (1:1) and coconut oil for the oil. I only had Bob Mills shredded coconut on hand so that's what I used. It doesn't have any added sugar like the regular flaked coconut. I also followed the suggestion of another person who soaked their raisins in hot orange juice before draining and adding to the carrot/coconut/pineapple mixture. The cake turned out wonderful. I'm sure it would be delicious with the listed ingredients, too. I didn't add nuts simply because I'm the only one in the house who will eat them, but I do sprinkle toasted pecans over the glaze I made when I tried to make the "whipped cream cheese frosting" recipe suggested by another reviewer. Like others, my frosting came out runny. Instead of tossing it, I pour it over the cake when I serve it and then sprinkle toasted pecans on top of mine. The consistency of the frosting is a lot like creme fraiche but has the taste of a traditional cream cheese frosting. The presentation is very Bon Appetite looking :) My dad is diabetic and thoroughly enjoys the cake without the frosting.

Jennifer's Burgundy Beef Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2013
This was delicious! I sautéed half the onion and two cloves of garlic with the meat. Then, added more garlic and the rest of the onion at the end like the recipe suggests. Otherwise I followed the recipe to the letter. It was very simple and tasty. Even my finicky 13 year old ate it... and that's saying something! I didn't have any trouble with the thickness. I don't like watery stew, this was just thick enough, kind of the consistency of gravy. I will definitely make this again!

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2013
This was excellent and super simple! I followed a few suggestions and doubled the recipe but used half the sugar (brown instead of white). Otherwise I kept the ingredients the same. I poured all the sauce on top before baking and took off the foil for the last half hour, basting it twice. I sliced it and put it with some sticky rice... Divine in no time! :)

Peanut Butter and Honey No-Bake Cookies

Reviewed: May 5, 2013
I halved the recipe and used Stevia in the Raw in place of the sugar. I also cut back on the honey (2 1/2-3 tbsp altogether). I didn't have any chunky peanut butter, but they were still yummy. I followed the other suggestions for boiling for 2-3 minutes and didn't have any trouble with them setting up. I added a half cup of milk chocolate chips which became melted and mixed in to make them just what I was after! Half a batch made 18.

Pressure Cooker Potato Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2013
The recipe was very tasty! I left out the dill since my family doesn't care for it, but otherwise it was great. I used smaller yellow potatoes (a little bigger than an extra large egg) and set them for 6 minutes in my Instant Pot. They were still a little hard in the middle after the suggested amount of time. I put them back in the pressure cooker for another 4 minutes and they seemed perfect. Next time I will let them cook for 9 0r 10 minutes before quick release. I think it's just the difference between pots that made for this discrepancy.

Whoopie Pies I

Reviewed: May 22, 2012
Used only butter as I didn't have any shortening. They turned out great! I beat the batter until it was nice and light brown. I whipped the butter until light, added a tablespoon of flour (as suggested by another) and then added the sugar and salt. I beat until very fluffy and added 3-4 tbsp of cream until it was light and fluffy. The frosting wasn't too sweet with the flour added. I tried a recipe from this site that first cooked the flour with milk before beating with sugar. It wasn't nearly as good as these! YUMMY!

Cinnamon and Raisin Spread

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2012
This turned out pretty tasty. I didn't have enough cottage cheese, so I halved the cream cheese and cottage cheese. I kept the 1 tsp cinnamon and used a total of 3 tsp of BROWN sugar. I blended this up in my Vitamixer. There wasn't any sugar crystals at all. I'm not sure if it was just the difference in sugar or the power of my blender. Anyhow, it was runny at first. When I refrigerated it, it turned into a more spreadable mixture. Next time I might use the full cup of cream cheese and use 1/2 cup cottage cheese. That might help the consistency and make it more like a cream cheese spread. I didn't mix any raisins in (per my picky 11 year old) but I'm sure it would be tasty. I used this with Bagels I recipe on this site. Thanks for the great recipe!

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
This recipe it great! I first made it as the recipe dictates. The rolls were delicious. Wanting to be a little healthier, I used honey instead of sugar. I also cut the honey down to 1/4 cup. I used 2 cups of bread flour and 1 3/4 whole wheat flour. My family loves this as sandwich bread. Sometimes I throw in a handful of old fashioned rolled oats, too. Fantastic and versatile recipe!

1-Dish Pepperoni Cheese Pizza Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2010
I've made a lot of homemade pizza since my son is such a fanatic. The only drawback is the hour I have to wait for the dough to be ready. This recipe was pretty good and VERY fast! I do suggest adding some seasonings to the dough. It's very plain. Usually I add some garlic bread seasonings (from Costco) to my regular recipe. I added a tablespoon or two when I doubled this recipe and it still tasted bland. I'll add several more next time or maybe some granulated garlic since it's pretty strong and some basil and oregano. Otherwise, the dough worked out very well. I do suggest using olive oil to oil the pans really well so the crust doesn't stick. I did this and it worked like a charm! I also followed the suggestion of adding some cornmeal to each pan. I topped the pizzas with hamburger, onions, mushrooms and ham and with just plain cheese and pepperoni. Both were great. For the speed of this recipe, I highly recommend it.

Pork Chop Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
Love the soup. It's a little salty though. I'll probably either cut back the salt or make sure to get low sodium chicken broth. I browned two Costco center cut pork chops cut into pieces in some olive oil and a clove of chopped garlic. Then, I added the rest of the ingredients as suggested. After around 45 minutes I put the veggies in. I didn't use the flour either. I usually like a thicker texture, but it was great without it this time. Oh, I didn't use broccoli, didn't have any.

Strawberry Shortcake

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2010
Very tasty! Used buttermilk instead of plain milk and added a tsp of vanilla extract. and sprinkled course sugar on top before baking. Turned out very moist on the inside, yet crunchy on the outside.

Belle's Hamburger Buns

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2010
Excellent rolls! Mine didn't puff up quite like the picture, but I did try to flatten them out quite a bit. I suspect if I'd left them more like golfballs I would have rounder rolls. At any rate, I used around 4 cups of flour and folded my first rise 3 times every 20 minutes, with a total rise time of 1 hr 20 minutes. The folding helps the yeast to gluten to fully develop resulting in a finer crumb and lighter rolls. Also, I followed the suggestion of another and used buttermilk instead. Finally, I completely forgot to add in the butter until the dough was formed so I kneaded it in. It still worked out fine! Thanks for the yummy recipe!

Homemade Pudding

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2010
Very tasty chocolate pudding! I burned the first batch using my le creuset pot (the bottom just heats up so quickly!) When I made it in my Calphalon pot and kept stirring, it turned out great. I can't wait to try it with different flavors. This would make a good pie filling or for mini-pies.

Sauteed Apples

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
Really tasty way to use up apples! My friend who owned a restaurant and was a pastry chef used to make a stuffed croissant french toast that used a carmel sauce and apples that tasted kind of like this. If you cut open a croissant part way, spread a thin layer of cream cheese and add these apples inside before gently soaking them in a french toast custard and cooking as usual in a buttered pan, you'll have something truly amazing to serve for a fancy breakfast! I will be sure to use this recipe instead from now on!

Pumpkin Cookies V

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
WOW! Very yummy and easy to half the recipe (although now I wish I hadn't!) I used freshly roasted pumpkin from my garden and added some cinnamon to the frosting (my son's suggestion) and they were absolutely delicious. Kind of tastes like the pumpkin scones from Starbucks, but more moist and flakey. Spooned the warm frosting over the tops of warm cookies with no problem. Dunking them sometimes resulted in broken cookies since they were so moist and fragile while warm.

Buttercup Squash Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
Very tasty recipe! I did add 3 tbsp of gluten flour to add more to the rise and I also used pumpkin spice (roughly a few tsps) instead of caraway. I put all the ingredients in the bread maker which kept me from having to add any flour to the recipe. I basted with cinnamon honey maple butter before the final rise and baked at 400 like the recipe called for. It is delicious! My son especially likes it for his PB and J sandwiches and my husband says it really good for roast beef too.

Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
Yum! Even my very picky son (verrrrry picky) liked this ok. I followed the suggestion of sauteing onion and garlic with the chicken and layering it with tortilla chips and cheese twice. Very tastey and high in protein to boot!

Tortilla Rollups IV

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2009
Very tasty recipe! I decided to trim it down a bit by using fat free cream cheese, light sour cream, fat free shredded cheddar cheese and low carb small mission flour tortillas. The turned out very good! I didn't have the seasonings called for so I used 1/2 a Lowry's Chicken Taco seasoning packet and it turned out great. Finally, I sauted a few hamburger patties until crumbly with a tsp of the seasoning salt. I added this to the spread. Yum! It made 12 tortillas and each one has 7 grams of fat, 23 carbs and 17 grams of protein! They are a meal all by themselves and great with a simple salad on the side! I also put them in the freezer until verrry firm before trying to cut them into pinwheel slices. Worked Great!
