Baked Cheese Olives

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
Made these for a family holiday dinner. I added some finely ground pecans and green onions to the dough for added texture and color. They came out very very well. I turned mine several times during the baking so they would get done more evenly on all sides. I also used jalapeno stuffed olives and they pack quite a kick! This dough would be very good for olives stuffed with different things as well as wrapped around dates. I will make these again.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
I have been "scratch biscuit challenged" until now. Made these this morning as a surprise for my husband before he left for work. I used buttermilk instead of reg milk and used a tbsp of butter for some of the shortening. I didnt knead them at all, just patted them out and cut them. I made them ahead of time and stuck them in the fridge for a while until I was ready to bake them. My husband said they were the best biscuits I have ever made. This will be my goto biscuit recipe from here on out!!!!

Eggs and Spaghetti

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2011
Oh my goodness this was sooooo good!! I used a bit of Spicy Red Pepper Roasted Garlic olive oil to fry my egg and also added a couple teaspoons of the pasta cooking water to the dish to stretch the "sauce". I also added grated parm on top. This is going to be one of my go to lunches or quick dinners, I can tell!!

Apple Bavarian Torte

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2010
Just happened to see this recipe and thought it sounded good. Boy, is it ever good!! I used 3 apples and 1 asian pear and microwaved them as other reviewers suggested. I also used 12 ounces of cream cheese. This dessert is also very easy to put together. I didnt have a springform pan so I used an 11 x 7 baking dish. It fit in there perfectly. Will definitely make again!!

Peanut Butter Fingers

Reviewed: May 14, 2010
Made these for hubby. He LOVED them. I did as other reviewers suggested and baked in an 8x8 pan. I also used chunky peanut butter. They go together really fast and easy too. These will get made on a regular basis around here.

Beef Stifado

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2010
Found this recipe while looking for something different to do with beef stew meat. I was attracted to it because of the spices and how different it sounded. I had to modify it somewhat based on what I had on hand. I didnt have an orange, so added a tiny bit of lemon zest. The only diced tomatoes I had on hand had green chiles in them so I used it. It actually made it quite nice with just a tiny spicy bite to it. I made this in the crockpot and let it cook all day. I didnt have any boiling onions so used regular yellow onions, roughly chopped. I removed some of the liquid after it was cooked and thickened it with flour and added it back in and let it thicken. We ate it over buttered egg noodles and we all loved it. I will be making this again.

Cherry Chocolate Brownie Cheesecake

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2010
YUM!!! I made this yesterday on a whim and because I had some cream cheese to use up. Its over half gone already! I did modify it a bit based on what I had on hand. I didnt have an 8oz brownie mix, so made one from scratch using the Hershey Best Brownie recipe. I also used a 9x13 pan since I dont have a springform pan. I also added chopped frozen dark sweet cherries on top of the brownie layer and added almonds to the brownies. Its wonderful. I have a new favorite dessert and this is it!!

Chewy Cinnamon Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2010
MMM, These are really really good. I cut the butter down a bit per other reviews. I also accidently melted the butter when I was softening in the microwave so not sure what effect that might have had on them. The only thing I wasnt thrilled with was that they seemed to take a really really long time to get done in the middle. I ended up turning the oven temp down a bit to make sure the middle was done and the outside edges werent overcooked. I added a few white chocolate chips as thats what I had on hand. My husband LOVED them. Will definitely make them again.

Southern Living Magazine's King Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
This came out beautifully. I was out of sour cream so I used heavy cream w/lemon juice added and it worked out wonderfully. I added some vanilla extract to the dough and a touch of cinnamon as well. I also omitted the raisins. My husband and roommate both loved this. Its not terribly sweet and will be wonderful with coffee in the morning.

Christmas Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2009
This stuff is absolutely wonderful. I was looking for something to use up a bit of leftover brie and found this. I actually had all the ingredients on hand. I did add just a tiny dash of maple syrup because when I initally tasted it, it was way to salty. After refrigerating it overnight, it turned out wonderfully. There were 2 cheese balls there tonight, only mine got nearly devoured, lol. I am taking another one of these to another dinner in a few days. I did try the suggestion of a gingersnap and it is indeed different. It was too "gingery" for my tastes but others may like it. A less salty cracker like Wheat things or water crackers would be great with this. It is extrememly rich, but really good!!!

Chocolate Chip Toffee Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2009
These are wonderful. Very rich as others have noted. Hubby and roomate LOVED them. I think next time I might put butterscotch or peanut butter chips on top for a variation. These are a keeper!

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2009
These were really good. Hubby and our houseguest loved them. Even the dog loved them. I made 18 muffins and some of them did not have a definite cream cheese layer but were still good. I used vegetable oil instead of olive oil. I also used almonds in the topping since thats what i had on hand. Seems like they took forever to mix up and get ready to go in the oven, but maybe it was just too early in the morning for me. Not enough coffee yet. Hubby said these were a keeper.

Apple Crisp IV

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
This was really good. I have not made apple crisp before but this one appealed to me since it had so much of the crisp part. I did add sugar, cinnamon and lemon juice to my apples as other reviewers suggested and it was plenty juicy. I did overcook it a bit as the topping was so thick it didnt seem done at 1st. It was still wonderful. I will make this one again next time I have apples to use up.

Country Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2009
I halved this recipe and it was gone in a flash! Hubby LOVED it! Said I could make it again any time, and since we just bought a bushel of fresh apples, it looks like we'll be having it again and again! I did use half brown, half white sugar as suggested in other reviews. I was afraid it would be too sweet but it was wonderful and rich.
