Peach Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2009
Made this today for Father's Day so I wanted it to be extra special; I had some blueberries that I'd just picked at a local farm and made a blueberry sauce as follows: 1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries, 1/4 cup water, 1/3 to 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon cornstarch, 1/4 teaspoon almond extract. Put berries and next 3 ingredients in a saucepan, bring to boil, stirring frequently until spoon is coated - approximately 20 to 35 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in 1/4 teaspoon almond extract. Ladle a couple of heaping spoonfulls on individual servings of Peach Cheesecake. Very special indeed! Everyone love it! (Texture of 'cheesecake' more like a cobbler, but still very tasty!)

JELL-O® 'Dive-on-In' Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2010
Living in south Louisiana, we thought it would be appropriate to make it a beach and add chocolate chips to the graham craker/brown sugar "sand" and call it 'Life's a beach and Then You Get Tarballs Cake". (See photo submitted today) The cake / jello combination was surprisingly delicious! We did add cream cheese to the whipped topping and some vanilla. Will definetly make again...need to use up all the 'decorations' anyway!

Chinese Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
Easy and delicious! The sauce is soooo good...subbed the celery with carrots because I was out. Added fresh ginger and garlic to sauce. Also, I removed the chops, but didn't strain the veggies...mixed cornstarch and water and added that to veggie/liquid mixture and thickened it that way. (Don't understand why you'd only want one cup of this amazing sauce.) Made steamed brocolli for a side, and ended up pouring sauce on that, too. Every bite was fantastic! Thanks for a super recipe!

Grilled Mongolian Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2012
Amazing! Fantastic! Made a few substitutions, but it didn't matter to outcome. Thought I had rice vinegar, but didn't, so had to sub. Found Mirin in the pantry (Japanese sweeten sake, made from rice wine), so used that insead of rice vinegar and did not add the sugar called for, since it was sweetened already. Also, couldn't find sherry vinegar, so used cider vinegar. For the dipping sauce, used sour cream instead of creme fraiche. Marinated pork chops overnight and hubby grilled them in his kamado grill. Made a great Father's Day meal! Served with grilled corn and braised cabbage. PS. You gotta watch Chef John's video...he is a hoot (as well as a talented chef)! Note: The mustard sauce balances the sweetness of the the marinade...it's a must have for the complete experience! :-)

Omelet Biscuit Cups

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2012
My 18yr old loves these. Gave this 5 stars because it's such a great idea and they are delicious. You can customize them to your own liking. Rolled and cut out my own biscuits because I thought the refrigerated type would get tough after freezing and reheating. Used crumbled cooked bacon and shredded cheese, not ham and mushrooms. Freezes great - now my son can grab a couple for breakfast on his way out to work - saving his hard earned money by not stopping for fast food breakfast.

Strawberry Lemonade Ice Pops

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2012
Easy to make...used fresh strawberries since in season. Perfect balance between sweetness of strawberries and tartness of the lemonade. Delicious and refreshing.

Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2012
Made this twice. First with whole wheat pasta and the second time with broccoli slaw instead of pasta (to cut down on the carbs, but ended up adding a pack of ramen noodles for added crunch. :-P) Both versions were yummy, yummy, yummy! Don't leave out the cilantro...it adds great flavor!

Indian Chicken Curry II

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2012
This smells wonderful and taste just as good. The first time I made it, though, used greek yogurt, cuz that's what I had. BIG MISTAKE...it mutes all the other spices and makes a wonderful dish just ho-hum. Make it as written, maybe add more curry, and use regular plain yogurt, and you've got a winner.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2012
This is a wonderful apple crisp. Bought a 4lb bag of Honey Crisp apples at Sam's Club, ate one and didn't like it...more tart than usual. So, I thought, dang, so much for eating healthy...I have to make a crisp now. Peeled, cored and sliced the rest of bag and it measured out 10 cups perfectly. Used a hand held apple slicer and then cut each of those slices in half lengthwise. Followed recipe, except made 1 1/2 times the topping and had plenty for top and bottom. As per other reviews, I cut butter into flour/oat/sugar mixture instead of melting it. Didn't use water, probably wouldn't have hurt it any, though. Baked for 1 hour to compensate for extra topping. Perfectly delicious served hot with a nice scoop of vanilla ice cream! Family was all smiles. Will add chopped pecans next time to put it over the top.

Blue Cheese, Spinach Meat Loaf Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2013
Added some chopped yellow and orange bell pepper, and a litlle more spinach and blue cheese (used gorgonzola) than what the recipe called for; filled 18 regular size muffin tins (1/4 cup each muffin), and for variety - put a typical ketchup glaze topping on 6, Tabasco brand Caribbean style steak sauce on another 6, and left remaining 6 plain. Baked for 20 minutes. WOW! All were delicious! The flavors were perfect together. Husband said this was the best meatloaf he's ever eaten. Don't know how you could go wrong - think if recipe followed to the T it would still be 5 stars.

Orange Chicken Stir Fry

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2013
Great recipe! Soooo delicious! Used green pepper and pineapple chunks instead of bean sprouts...they are listed as optional anyway. If you like bean sprouts, then I'm sure it would still be 5 stars. Also, I used pineapple juice from the can of pineapple instead of orange juice, but I still think it would've been 5 stars with OJ! Did everything else according to the recipe. Think it would be great over rice and garnished with cashews. Oh, I almost forgot...reduced salt content to 1/2 teaspoon. Kept everything the same, even the zest. That's all the changes, I swear! ;-)

Sweet and Spicy Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2013
Used Orange Infused Olive Oil instead of plain olive oil to put it over the top! Also, didn't measure spices, because I was in a hurry, just sprinkled (to lightly cover) with garlic powder, paprika, cinnamon, salt, black pepper, cayenne and at least 3 tablespoons brown sugar. Tossed to be sure evenly coated and baked as directed. Yum, yum, yum!

Lentil and Sausage Soup

Reviewed: May 15, 2013
Gave it 5 stars even though I made minor changes due to ingredients on hand. Used herbs de provence instead of oregano, thyme and basil. Used polish kielbasa sausage instead of italian and chopped carrots instead of shredding...and more of them. Left out pasta and 2 cups of the water. My hubby said this was the best soup he ever ate in his life! I have to agree! Must try!

Fabulous tomato salad. Finally got some good creoles at the grocery store!! (Creole tomoatoes are only grown in certain parts of south Louisiana where the soil is just right.) Extremely flavorful. Made two days in a row! Perfect side to Spinach and Feta Turkey burgers.
