Chocolate Pecan Pie III

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2005
An absentee guest sent this pie to our home for Thanksgiving dinner. I was too busy and too full to try the dessert and, when cleaning up the kitchen, I decided to pack up the few leftovers and send it back home with her husband (I was trying to save space in the fridge). When my other guests learned that I had returned the remaining pie, they were sooooo disappointed, saying it was the best pie they had ever eaten and I was crazy to have given it up. When I tried the pie a day later, I have to admit that it was fantastic. I should let you know that she mistakenly used 1 cup of butter (instead of only 1/2) and I don't know if that error added even more to its "fantasticness". I can't wait to make this myself! update: I made this last night and made the terrible error of adding the eggs to the hot chocolate mixture and taking my time before mixing it all together. What happened? Some of the eggs cooked, resulting in chunks of scrambled eggs in the pie! Gross!!! I picked out the chunks of egg, ruining the look of the pie, but it still tasted fine. How does this pie taste hot out of the oven? Ugh. How does it taste after a night of chilling in the refrigerator? Deeelish.

Berry-Mandarin Tossed Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2005
fabulous! i used bacon bits (made from soy) from the grocery store salad dressing section since we don't eat pork products. one time, i stir-fried some chopped-up chicken breast pieces in salt, pepper, and garlic powder and threw it into the salad...made a fantastic lunch. wonderful for the summer and everyone has loved it so far.

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2005
my husband said that this "tasted like something you would pay $17/plate for at a restaurant". i added some chopped cilantro to the marinade and also added a little bit of chopped onions to the oil when sauteeing the fish. i think those really made nice additions to this dish. i served it up with rice pilaf for a quick dinner and the kids loved it.

Chocolate Mint Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2003
i cannot even begin to express how excited i am to find this recipe! my friend's hubby recently bought a batch for $24(!!!) at a fundraiser and she served them to us at a playdate at her house. we all flipped out over them. i've been bugging her husband to get the recipe from the person who baked these, but no success so far. on a whim, i decided to do a search on this site and allrecipes.com came thru for me once again! thank u, thank u, thank u! the only thing different about the batch i tasted was that there were chocolate chips in the brownies and the middle layer frosting was tinted green. thank u soooo much, s. hynek! love, hina

Easy Pavlova

Reviewed: May 23, 2003
i was worried that the meringue would be too sweet, so i reduced the sugar to 1 cup and it was still waaaaay too sugary for our tastes. if u would like a subtler flavor, then i recommend u try it out with only 3/4 cup sugar. that way, it shouldn't be so sweet that your teeth hurt... ;) i also learned a tip from a friend and added 3/4 cup yogurt and 4 T superfine sugar to the unsweetened heavy whipping cream (after having whipped it, of course) --- yum, yum! it made for a really nice tangy/sweet taste. i chopped up mandarin oranges and added it in to the whipped cream and garnished it with a mint sprig on top. people flipped out and i've had 3 guests call me to ask for the recipe. i snuck into the kitchen in the middle of the night to polish off the leftovers and they were all gone! now, that's a compliment!

Make Ahead French Toast

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2002
i'm wondering if debbie intended to write that we should cut the french bread in 1 inch SLICES and not cubes. anyway, that's what i did. u definitely need to lightly grease the pan. i thought i could get away with just laying foil in the pan, but it ended up becoming a second skin and took forever to peel off. won't be making that mistake again. i only had 1/2 cup of pecan chips, so that's all i used, but it really was more than enough. i doubt i'll be using 1 cup when i make this again. we're fasting during this month of ramadan and i made this for my hubby and myself for our pre-dawn meal. it was worth getting up early for!

Quick Pour Fondant Icing

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2002
this did not work for me at all! it took forever to sift the powdered sugar and then the frosting was just way too transluscent! i should have listened to the reviewer who warned us about this problem. luckily powdered sugar doesn't cost much, but it was really a waste of my time and my cake. i ended up throwing it all out cuz it just tasted like a glazed doughnut instead of a petit four. :(

Chocolate Brittle Surprise

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2002
i made this bark just this morning with a slightly different recipe, but it was just as popular and tasty as this one evidently is. i used saltines on a 12x17 pan and didn't need cooking spray. i boiled 1 cup butter with 1 cup white sugar for 2 mins., spread it on the saltines, and baked at 400 degrees for 8 mins. i mixed 12 oz. choc chips with 10 oz. peanut butter chips and spread on top with a rubber spatula. too delicious for words!

Creamy Dill Cucumber Toasties

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2001
i made these for a dinner party and not a single one was left by the end of the evening. what makes that even more remarkable is that i had only invited TWO other guests (besides my husband and me). now that says a lot!

Anniversary Chicken I

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2001
mm-mm, this dish looked as good as it tasted. i don't eat pork products, so i used bac-os instead of real bacon bits. they're completely vegetable-based and tasted great! the red from the bac-os, the green from the green onions, and the yellow from the cheese really made for a visually appealing combination! i'm sharing this recipe with all my friends!

Amy's Garlic Egg Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2001
excellent! don't forget to only use 1/4 cup of bread crumbs or so, and when u do so, be sure to lessen the amount of salt and pepper as well. i forgot and the seasoning was a little too salty/spicy. won't make that mistake again and will be making this dish over and over (God willing). the kids gobbled it up with mashed potatoes and baby carrots!
