Milly's Oatmeal Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2012
This is SO delicious & versatile. If it's too much butter for you, then replace a 1/4 C of butter w/ a 1/4 C of applesauce. Yum!

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2012
Simple & delicious. I only had 3 (8oz) pkgs of cream cheese instead of 4, so I cut the sugar down to 1 cup & used only 3 eggs. I also cut the milk down to 1/2 cup. I used a 9" round cake pan instead of a springform pan & pressed the graham cracker crust along the bottom & up the sides of the cake pan. I set a 9"x13" baking pan filled w/ 2" of water on a lower oven rack w/ the cheesecake baking on the rack just above it. I baked it in a preheated 350 degree oven for an hour. At the end of an hour, I shut my oven off & forgot about the cheesecake for 5 hours. I then transferred it to my fridge & served it the next day. It turned out beautiful, tasted delicious, & there were no cracks! Cheesecake shrinks as it cools & pulls away from the sides of the pan. Cracks form because the cheesecake sticks to the sides of the pan during the cooling/shrinking process. Either grease the inside of your pan EXTREMELY well or just press a crust up the sides of the pan as well as along the bottom. Serve each slice straight from the cake pan like you're serving a slice of pie. Yum!

Blueberry Breakfast Cake

Reviewed: May 21, 2012
This result was a bit dry for me, & the batter needs just a pinch of salt.

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: May 21, 2012
This is my new key lime pie recipe, & it is SO easy to make! I made my own graham cracker crust & used 2 - 14oz cans non-fat sweetened condensed milk & 1/2 C Daisy Light sour cream. It was DELICIOUS! I topped it off w/ some fresh-made whipped cream. YUM!

Tzatziki Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
Great balance of ingredients, but the method of preparation can be improved. I drained the yogurt while it was still in the container (I just held a large spatula @ the top of the container to hold the yogurt in place as the liquid drained). Then I cut my cucumber into chunks, salted them w/ a good pinch of salt & let them sit on a few layers of paper towels on a plate for just a few minutes. I then placed all of the ingredients EXCEPT the yogurt into a food processor & processed until chunky/coarse. Next I folded the cucumber mixture into the yogurt & then let it set in the the fridge for an hour. Perfect!

Peanut Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2010
YUMMY DELICIOUS. I have found my from-scratch chocolate cake recipe! Most other recipes I tried were too dry. This is wonderful & moist & flavorful. My hubby is from PA, so chocolate cake w/ PB frosting is a standard for him. He said this was the best he's ever had! I followed the instructions EXCEPT I only had 1/2 C of sour cream instead of a full 1 C, so I used 1/2 C of sour cream & 1/2 C of plain non-fat yogurt. I also used just 2 C of flour & 1/4 C of unsweetened cocoa powder. I omitted the peanuts because of my hubby's preference for no nuts. THIS IS A KEEPER RECIPE!

Monkey Bread II

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2009
This is such an easy recipe. I was so happy to find a recipe that didn't use refrigerated biscuit dough. I used my bread machine on the dough setting which is such a time-saver! I used butter instead of margarine & the sauce was so sticky, so gooey, just so yummy. To save from making too much of a mess I used a soup spoon to move the balls of dough around in the brown sugar sauce & to scoop them into the bundt cake pan. My fingers never touched the sauce! Next time I will experiment with different fruit and nut flavors! It's apple season, so I'll be making an apple monkey bread w/ apple cider and extra cinnamon!

Slow Cooker Cider Pork Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2009
I made some similar changes to make it an easier dish - I didn't use a food processor, I didn't brown the meat first, & I used 1/2 cup of semi-dry red table wine instead of all the water. Very tasty, but still needs work.

Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
Simply delicious. Very hearty and tasty. I sauteed my veggies in the pot before adding the water & ham bone. Then I simmered for an hour, really pulling the ham flavor from the bone. I then removed the bone, added the dried peas, added the meat from the bone back in, brought to a quick boil, then reduced & simmered for an hour. Just perfect.

Whole Wheat Beer Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2008
This is a wonderful "base" beer bread recipe. Make it as is with a dark porter for a hearty, intense bread best served fresh from the oven with butter or preserves (blueberry is the best). Use a red ale and add 3/4 C of golden raisins for a complex flavored bread, again best served fresh with butter. You can control the heartiness by adding more white flour and less wheat flour. I definitely recommend!

Perfect Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
What's great about this recipe is that it's KID FRIENDLY. The condensed milk creates a thicker filling for the pie than evaporated milk, so the filling doesn't slosh around when you try to put it into the oven. I use this recipe anytime I'm cooking with my nieces. I can't tell you how many times the filling spilled all over the inside of my hot oven when I used evaporated milk instead. To really spruce it up, I add an extra teaspoon of cinnamon, plus a 1/2 teaspoon of ground cloves and a 1/4 cup of brandy or cognac. I also melt 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter with 2 tablespoons of dark brown sugar and swirl the mixture into the top of the pie filling before baking. This gives the pie a spectacular aesthetic value!
