Rice Pudding

Reviewed: May 22, 2012
This makes a huge amount of rice pudding. Also, I did not have a 2 quart baking dish (?!) so put it in a 13x9 pan. It was pretty soupy but it tasted good. My grandpa enjoyed it.

Whiskey Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
This cake was OK. I didn't like it much, but a few of the older gentlemen at the party I served this at went nuts for it. It just tasted like plain white cake with a few nuts in it to me...It was certainly not dry, though!

Dill Vegetable Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
I followed this recipe almost exactly. The only change ws I used green onions instead of a white or yellow onion. I find that they are much easier to mince than the others and have a fresh, mild taste. I was very happy with the results as I really didn't want to use dehydrated onions or a soup mix. Nice, unoffending seasonings - a crowd pleaser!

Libby's® Famous Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2011
I don't know what recipe my family has been using all these years, but it was my duty to make the pumpkin pie this year. As I had no "family recipe" to follow, I used the one on the back of the pumpkin can (also the one found here!). I got such rave reviews - even from people who don't normally like pumpkin pie! - that I couldn't believe it! The pie was perfectly set (not dry or too soggy) and the spices were perfect! I will DEFINITELY be making this again. I served it with fresh whipped cream.

Astoria Crab Pasta

Reviewed: May 3, 2011
This recipe is incredibly light and bland. I would have given it 1 star, but because it will be so easy to jazz up in the future (like, 10x the garlic, 3x the spices and champagne!) I will give it 3. It is a good base recipe or if you have picky eaters who only like butter noodles, this is a good one to get them started on. I used shrimp and scallops instead of crab.

Chinese Chicken Fried Rice II

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2011
Pretty good flavor, very basic recipe. This is a good one to get started on and add your own flair to it later!

Mushy Peas II

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2011
This dish was lacking in flavor, but I'm not sure what it was missing. It wasn't bad, but I'm not sure I would make it again.

Beer Bread II

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2011
I omitted the chilies and cheese. I made 8 muffins and put the rest of the batter into a loaf. It only took about 30 minutes to bake this way. I used Trouble Brewing Amber Ale. I thought the butter was excessive, but I used it all anyways. I used a brush to slather it over the muffins and the loaf and I did it in 2 batches to allow optimal butter absorption. =] By doing it this way, I avoided a grease puddle under my bread. The muffins did not bake to look like a muffin, they just look like little rocks, but inside are soft. I would recommend using foil muffin wrappers if you choose to make muffins. I used paper and they got just a little stuck to the bottom of the bread!

Rosemary Roasted Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2011
Wonderfully juicy tenderloin recipe! Not at all dry, and very flavorful! I didn't have dijon mustard (thought I did, got into the recipe and there was none to be had!) so I substituted 1/4 cup prepared yellow mustard with a heaping tablespoon of horseradish. It turned out great! This one is a keeper!

Risotto with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Mozzarella

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2011
I had a hard time deciding if I liked this recipe when it was done. It SOUNDED great. But I encountered issues with the rice being undercooked (I have no idea how as it is a long cooking process) and the finished product is actually quite flavorless. I was thinking it would be a nice "caprese" style, savory dish with the tomatoes, basil and mozzarella. It ended up being a bit sweet, actually - not at all what I expected. It wasn't absolutely disgusting or anything, just rather bland and all around a bit of a dud. I added a lot of salt and it helped a little, but in the end none of my family really liked it (aside from the bit we picked at). This recipe also makes a HUGE amount of risotto!!! Plenty for 6+ people!

Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2009
VERY good for how lean this is. No butter like a traditional scampi, but definitely no sacrifice on the flavor! I added 6 (medium-small) cloves of garlic instead of the 2 the recipe calls for. However, my sister and I love garlic, so we thought it was great with the extra flavor! I infused olive oil with the garlic, then added the shrimp and other seasonings before adding it to the pasta. Delicious!

Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
I didn't have any garlic salt for some reason (?!), so I used some garlic powder and a little extra salt. They turned out pretty well. They did not take as long in the oven as the recipe said, though, so keep an eye on them!

Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
Wonderful recipe. Very rich, very sweet. Spreads beautifully, I used it on cupcakes. My roommate tasted it and said that it almost tasted like vanilla ice cream!

Heavenly White Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
Wonderful for a basic cake recipe. I made cupcakes with the batter instead of a whole cake and they come out simply delightful. Not too sugary sweet, nice and fluffy but with some body.

English Muffin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
Amazing as toast with lots of butter...or just bread and butter when it's fresh. I love it as toast with fig jam as well. Wonderful, all around bread.

Reuben Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2008
I didn't have very good luck with this recipe. I don't know if I layered the ingredients in the wrong order or what, but it just did not come out well at all. Somewhat of an expensive recipe to botch...Maybe will try again later because it sounds so good!

Bacon Wrapped Smokies

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2008
These little guys are great! People really seemed to enjoy them for the most part! Very simple recipe, too. I added about 1/4 cup extra brown sugar and put it on just before popping them in the oven. I also wrapped a few sausages with extra bacon (just to see...) and they were extra good! If you choose to do the extra bacon bit, I'd follow the advice of a fellow reviewer and consider crisping the bacon up under the broiler for a minute or so (like she said, beware of flaming toothpicks!!!!! :D).

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies VI

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2008
I'm not too huge of an oatmeal raisin cookie person, but these were just below what I would even normally rate. They didn't seem to have any flavor (I even added extra cinnamon after the first batch to see if that would help! It didn't...) and the texture was strange - almost between a cakey cookie and a true oatmeal cookie. Other people said they were "fine" or "good" but no rave reviews.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2008
I just made these for the first time since coming home from school (my whole sorority loves them!) and my family all wants more! They are a wonderfully moist, cakey cookie and the icing really gives it that extra kick of sweetness. Very well spiced!
