Lime Kissed Cheesecake

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2002
I changed the recipe a bit. I made a graham cracker crust (1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs and 1/4 cup butter baked at 325 for 10 minutes), used bottled juice, and separated the mixing to more closely resemble other cheesecake recipes (I mixed the cream cheese, juice, vanilla, flour, salt, and sugar, then added the eggs one at a time, mixing in between each addition). The cheesecake turned out really well. It was very flavorful, though don't expect it to be a sweet dessert; it's tart but refreshing...

Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2002
After reading everyone else's reviews, I expected this to be a good soup, but what I got was beyond any expectations!!! This soup was amazing! Simple to make, but at the same time it looks and tastes like I must have spent hours working on complicated steps. I was trying to replicate a soup that had chunks of tomato in it, so I only pureed half of the tomato mixture with the basil. The only part of making this soup that seemed at all tedious was peeling and seeding the tomatos. Next time I'll probably try it with canned tomatos since vertually all of the "freshness" gets cooked out of them anyway. Thanks holly for a wonderful recipe! I'll probably be making this regularly now, and I've even considered starting to grow basil.

Irish Cream Chocolate Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2002
This is one of my absolute favorites! I really had been looking for a Bailey's Chocolate Chip Cheesecake recipe, so I just leave out the cocoa that would normally go into the mix and carefully fold in 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips right before pouring the batter into the pan. I also use 1/3 cup Bailey's as was suggested by other reviewers. It turns out great every time!

Autumn Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2002
This cheesecake is extremely tasty! I especially like the crust on this one. And the apple topping does a good job of camouflaging any of those pesky little cracks that sometimes appear. The only suggestion I would make is to double the cream cheese mixture. I've just read a few reviews and I have to say, I've made this cheesecake many times and I've used different kinds of apples and never microwaved them and i always drizzle the juice over the top. The cheesecakes have always turned out great. If anything the cheesecake is that much more smooth and creamy (but not runny) because of the juice.

Granola Bars III

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2003
I agree with the previous post that said this recipe was too sweet. Next time I'll try the 1/4 cup of brown sugar suggestion.

Best Fried Green Tomatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2003
What a great breading for this! I made some of these thick and some thin and they each had different good points. I prefered them thinner, but I'd recomend trying both to see what you like. Oh, and I'm allergic to eggs, so I made it without. That way you don't actually have to measure out either the milk or the flour.

Blackberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2003
This is very good - lots of interesting flavors coming together. I thought it might taste strange, but they amazingly enough all end up going very well together.

Baklava

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2003
I grew up eating baklava with pistachios, but people were talking about making it with walnuts, so I decided to do half with pistachios and half with walnuts. I also wanted to try the idea of adding 1/4 cup of orange juice, so I did half and half with and without orange juice in the opposite direction. They were all delicious, but the quarter with walnuts and oj was my favorite. Walnuts were also much easier to deal with, because I didn't have to sit there and shell them for an hour. I'd never worked with phylo dough before. It was fine except when I had a damp cloth on the dough; then it got gummy.

Sweet and Tart Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2003
This wasn't my favorite dish ever, but it was tasty. I wasn't sure how I'd like the vinegar and pepper on my strawberries, but I actually ended up enjoying it.

A Baker's Secret for Bread Machines

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2003
Amazing! No sugar, but it still has a great texture. The crust was very flaky. I did use vegetable shortening instead of the lard. I made the cinnamon version, and it smelled so great while it was cooking I could hardly wait to try it.

Herman Sourdough Starter

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2004
What a pain this recipe was. On the 15th day I felt like I needed to bake as many sourdough things as possible before the window closed for another week and a half. There are starters that are ready to use anytime after they've fermented. I think I'll stick to one of those.

Easy Pizza Sauce I

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2004
It tasted a bit strong and was very acidic. It was also really thin. Even still, I couldn't stop myself from liking it.

Curried Lentils

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2004
When I first looked at this recipe I wasn't sure what "cream of coconut" was. It sounded like cream based coconut soup to me. After looking up and down the aisles of an Asian market I decided that I thought the recipe had intended "coconut milk." That's what I used and it turned out well. It was very flavorful and spicy, though not too hot.

Rosemary Roasted Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2004
This was my first turkey ever. I had trouble with the loosening of the skin. It was time consuming, but definitely do-able. I baked it breast side down for the first two hours to prevent it from drying out. Flipping it over after that was also hard but do-able. It ended up tender and very flavorful.

Pecan Pie

I can't believe how easy this was! It tasted great too, even though I used walnuts instead of pecans.

Taco Soup VIII

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2005
This recipe is great! I don't know that I'd call it a soup as much as a stew or chili, but it was very tasty. I used different beans and didn't bother with the green onions.
