Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2012
This was the best chocolate cake I've ever made, and quite possibly the best I've had. Perfectly delicate and tender crumb, moist and absolutely melt in your mouth. I frosted with Creamy Chocolate frosting which I tweaked slightly and added some shavings of a Hershey bar to dress it up. This will be my go-to chocolate cake recipe from now on!

Single Crust Peach Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2011
I had some leftover crust dough in the freezer and wanted a quick and easy one crust peach pie to throw together. I cut the recipe to fit the smaller pie and it was delish! I am not a huge nutmeg fan, so I substituted cinammon instead. I know, I know, not the same recipe. I followed the rest of the recipe and as many reviewers suggested, to accomodate for and not throw away the delicious juice, I coated the peaches in flour and the pie came out perfect! The crumb was light and crispy and the pie was not runny at all. Thank you for this quick and easy recipe!

French Onion Soup Gratinee

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2011
That was outstanding!! I only had sweet and yellow onions, so I used what I had and was thrilled with the results. I used swiss and fresh grated asiago for the cheeses. I'm sure this will be a staple for cold winter nights! Awesome recipe! Thank you!!

Greg's Southern Biscuits

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2011
These really are fantastic biscuits. They have become a Sunday morning favorite in my house, with bacon and gravy made from the drippings. I use crisco(instead of lard) because I keep that on hand and it works great. The biscuits are always tender on the inside with a light crunch on top like Greg said. The grating is genius and keeps the handling of the dough to a minimum. Making the buttermilk, for anyone doubting whether it works, it absolutely does and does not effect the biscuits at all. Nice job Greg and thanks for the recipe!

Marinated Tuna Steak

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2010
LOVE this marinade. It is also phenomenal on boneless chicken thighs. Marinate the thighs for a longer period and throw them on the grill. Great summer dish!

Italian Peas

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
I tried this recipe with fresh peas from the farmers market, but added more broth to allow them to cook through in the liquid, and added a little butter towards the end because I love butter. Wow! Excellent recipe, wonderful sidedish. Thank you!

Wonderful Banana Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
This recipe is SO easy and SO yummy. I have made it too many times to remember because it is such an easy way to use overripe bananas. It is a hit every time I share it with people. I usually add an extra banana and I make my own frosting with cream cheese, confectioners sugar, a teaspoon of vanilla and a spoon or two of sour cream. YUM! Thanks for the recipe!
