Fresh Pear Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2010
Yummo!!! My husband and I both loved this cake! such a great way to use up pears from the tree. The only alteration I made was with the spices. I used 1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice and 1/2 tsp of cinnamon only because that's what I had on hand. I also found it had to bake for 1 hour 15 mins in my oven. Thanks for sharing!

Easy Alfredo Sauce I

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2010
i found this was a great base - i personally like to add extra seasoning / stuff (ie mushrooms, garlic etc) to my sauce - but as is... it's pretty yummy :) I'll use this again for sure.

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2010
i made some common adjustments. I used walnuts instead of pecans (they're cheaper). I sub'd 3/4c apple sauce for 3/4c of the oil to cut the fat, used half white / half brown sugar. I also used 3 cups of icing sugar in the frosting and it was perfectly sweet and yummy. I took this cake to a dinner party and everyone LOVED it! This is for sure a keeper!! I give it 5 stars even with my changes as I think it would still be awesome with no changes. Thanks for sharing!

Florida Strawberry Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2010
My family loved them! giving it a 4 only because i made alterations! i almost never make a recipe exactly as is. i didn't have nutmeg so i used cinnamon and i even added a pinch of allspice. i like adding oats to my muffins as well but i only had packaged instant oatmeal - added that in too. i also used sub'd some brown sugar instead of all white in the mix. Finally, I found 15 minutes was plenty of time in my oven. I'll make again for sure.

Italian Confetti Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
I used scoobi doo noodles for this :). I used part mayo and part sour cream to make up the 1 cup - i just didn't want to use that much mayo. some others said it was too much dressing on the pasta - but i was making mine a day in advance and since i find homemade pasta salad tends to absorb the dressing and dry out a bit when left in the fridge overnight, i left the measurements as is and it was perfect for me by the next day. I left out the olives and basil only as a preference - and I added chives, cucumber, celery and used red pepper instead of yellow because that's what I had. I think I'd make it again with my own variations. Oh and i cut the salt in half :)

Morning Glory Muffins I

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
these are great and you can easily alter the recipe to suit your own tastes. I omit the apple butter, add a mashed banana. I also soak the raisins in the egg mixture (i only use 2 eggs) to plump them up before baking. Yum!

New Red Potato Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
Nice simple fresh potato salad. I added some finely sliced red onion and a bit of paprika too. Not a huge fan of eggs, so I only used 2 - chopped them until they were almost crumbs and used them as a topping. will make this again.

Macaroni and Cheese with Veggie Bacon

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
I have made this several times since finding this recipe! My husband loves it and he normally doesn't like mac and cheese. I don't use bacon though and I do top with breadcrumbs instead. Have used pre shredded Italian cheese blend and it's great that way too!
