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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
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.

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

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.

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.

Cottage Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
This was very good- I did drain the cottage cheese because it looked like it would be too wet. I also cooked the onion in a small amount of butter before I added it to the potatoes.

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
This made a great filling for a chocolate cake. I used a chocolate ganache for the top and sides of a four layer cake and this was a perfect light and fluffy filling to offset the rich chocolate. Next time I think I'll frost the whole cake with this- but it might need to be doubled to do that.

Alaska Salmon Bake with Pecan Crunch Coating

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
This was wonderful. I really do not like salmon but am trying to eat more fish and it is affordable, this was the answer.
