Pie Crust IV

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
Pie crust was flaky and supportive to a juicy berry pie. I added the water slowly and found I only needed 1/4 cup so make sure you follow the recipe.

Lime Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
Very refreshing. I used a purchased graham cracker crust and it was larger so I doubled the filling recipe and it was perfect. My family ate it in no time so I have no idea if it would store well

True Blue Custard Crunch Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
Wonderful. I made the pie exactly as the recipe called for and it was perfect. I am not a big fan of blueberry pie but this was not too sweet and with the crunch of the pecans it had nice contrasts in flavor and texture.

Broccoli Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
I too added salt and pepper. I also used fresh broccloi which I blanched and chopped the flowerets. I also baked it in a 9x13 pan. I don't usually include so many changes when rating a recipe but upon reading the other comments... We really enjoyed the recipe with these changes.

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
Very moist. I used half whole wheat flour and my family really enjoyed the cake. It was nice to serve something that is not overly sweet (no cream cheese frosting) and have them like it.

Amazing Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

Reviewed: May 13, 2009
Tastes good, I let the bread machine do the mixing. I made two 12" pizzas and they held up to alot of toppings. Nice to know you're getting a little extra with this recipe.

The Best Bean and Ham Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2009
I made it with a couple of changes since I didn't have all of the ingredients but I don't beieve they changed the recipe significantly. I used all vegetable broth and used fresh parsley, I also added more ham since we had so much left! This was wonderful. I served it once with home made wheat bread and once with corn bread (a savory recipe) and it went with eiher. I froze about a third of it and am looking forward to using it- we had a heat wave so I am waiting for cooler weather.

Golden Rum Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
I have made this several times- and it works every time. I have used spiced rum with the yellow cake mix and it is wonderful. I used Kahlua with dark chocolate cake mix and it was also wonderful. So easy.

Pumpkin Cheesecake in a Gingersnap Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
Excellent great alternative to pumpkin pie. I followed the recipe exactly and had great results. I have made this several times- I have topped it with a sweetened sour cream topping and that works well for a little twist.

Pork Chops with Apples, Onions, and Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
Very good but the pork chops were a little dry. Next time I will brine them first. Great combination of flavors and add a salad and you have a complete meal.

Raspberry Tart

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2009
Easy and delicious. I made it as is the first time but the second time I had a bunch of strawberries to use. I used about 2 lbs strawberries instead of raspberries and I added about 3/4 c chopped pecans to the crust and used an 11" tart pan instead. Delicious- I used sugar free raspberry jam and served it with lightly sweetened whipped cream. It was delicious and not too sweet.

Fabulous Homemade Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2009
Very good- not too heavy but still a little chewy. Family loved it- I cut the recipe down to two loves with no problem.

Impossible Buttermilk Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2009
I had some buttermilk and strawberries to use up so I decided to try this recipe. Although I bake alot I had never made one of these pies or even eaten it. I baked it alot longer than the recipe called for and it was still very runny on the bottom. I didn't sweeten the strawberries when I tasted the pie and used them to cut the sugar- it would have been way to sweet without them. It was good with the berries and some lightly sweetened whipped cream but all in all I will not make again.

Shrimp Creole IV

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
Very good. I did have to substitute red bell pepper for the green as none in the frige. I also sauteed the veges in olive oil as I did not have any bacon. I am sure that the bacon would have added some smokiness so next time. I cut the cayenne in half since my husband and I don't like really hot food- we like spicey but not hot and it was just right. It did take a while with the cleaning of the shrimp and making the broth- I did this the night before, but if you are short on time I would suggest buying your shrimp already cleaned and deveined and there are some good fish stocks available.

Butternut and Apple Harvest Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
I roasted the squash, carrots, apples and onions along with some sweet potatoes (which I sub'd for the white potato) I think the roasting intensifies the flavor. Delicious soup.

I had trouble getting this to cook all of the way through in a 9 x 13pan. I was more successfull baking up as a layer cake.

Navy Bean Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
A little bland as written since I used sweet Italian Sausage. I added a bunch of Mrs Dash to keep it low sodium and this helped.
