Hot and Spicy Pecans

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2005
A great recipe! I omitted the salt since the nuts were already salted. I also decreased the oven temp. to 250 degrees since I was concerned about burning and was also making a batch of Cinnamon-Roasted Almonds in another pan so it was very handy to make them both at the same time. Makes a great gift idea- just be sure to make extra for yourself!!!

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2004
Very tasty recipe! I made just a HALF batch (due to supplies on hand) with a few adjustments: 2T Smart Balance to saute onions, 1 large head of fresh broccoli, 1 can of broth +1 can of water, 1 cup of Velveeta Light, 1 cup of fat free milk to which the cornstarch & garlic powder was added. Omitting the water made the soup nice and thick. I also added a few dashes of nutmeg and some ground white pepper and salt. Very YUM!

Creamy Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2004
I followed the recipe except I used Splenda in place of the sugar. It had a really funky taste. Even the kids didn't like it! I will go back to the Jell-o Sugar Free Cook & Serve chocolate pudding until I find something better.

Lemon Lush Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2004
Wow! This was very tasty-much like a lemon version of Key Lime Pie. I made the following adjustments: increased lemon juice to 1/2 cup & reduced milk to 3/4 cup. I also added the zest (and 2 tsp. of sugar) in with my usual homemade pastry crust instead of in the filling (we don't like bits in our filling)- I love a flavorful crust. I think it would be great in a graham cracker crust.

Chocolate Bar Fondue

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2004
A great recipe! We made it for a kid's Valentine's Day party. It was a big hit with the kids AND adults. Then we watched Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (the DVD edition is GREAT- lots of extras). One tip- be sure to dissolve the instant coffee in the 1/3 cup of water. Also, I prepared the mixture in the microwave instead of on the stove. The consistency was perfect. The chocolate I used 3 bags (11.5 ounce size) of Hershey's choc. chips- 2 milk & 1 semi-sweet. For dipping we used: Nilla vanilla wafers, mini pretzels, crispy wafer strips (vanilla, chocolate & strawberry), pound cake cubes, marshmallows (great with just chocolate or dip then roll in a dish of crushed graham crackers to make s'mores- VERY YUMMY!- these were a BIG hit), and finally some frozen banana slices. We saved leftover fondue (lots leftover) to use as hot fudge sauce or as a base for hot chocolate (about 1 Tablespoon / mug of hot milk).

Cinnamon-Roasted Almonds

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2003
Wow, these are great! I added about 1/2 tsp. of vanilla to the egg white. If you are using salted nuts, omit the salt. I also made a separate batch for my folks using Splenda since they are low carb-ing. The Splenda batch was drier, so double the cinnamon / Splenda mixture for a heavier coating. They loved them. Also, I would strongly advise using PARCHMENT PAPER on the bottom of the pan (secure it with some spray oil) to make stirring & clean-up a breeze.

Roasted and Curried Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2003
An interesting autumn soup. We like things spicy so I added a few dashes of ground red pepper since I had only mild curry on hand. I also added some heavy cream to give it a creamer taste (instead of adding yogurt). My husband liked it better chilled- I prefered it hot.

Beef Pot Pie III

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2003
This is a good overall recipe. I did make a some changes. First, I added some seasoning (rosemary, sage, white pepper, thyme) to the raw meat before searing (locks in some flavorful juices). Then, I used a combination of water and dry red wine to stew the meat (skim any scum off). I removed the meat after it was done then cooked my vegetables in the same liquid as the beef (add water & salt as necessary) . By doing this it will give you a better tasting gravy which will need less cornstarch because the vegetable starches which will help to act as a thickening agent. Adjust the salt, white pepper and seasonings to taste. I also added sliced mushrooms at the end. I have found that if you increase your vegetables slightly, you will have enough for 2 pies. I used a homemade double crust to which I added about a teaspoon each of dried rosemary, thyme and some pinches of salt & white pepper to the flour before cutting in the shortening. It really makes a big difference.

Sour Cream Coffee Cake III

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2003
Just what I was looking for. I did make the following adjustments: I was low on butter so used 1/2 cup butter with 1/2 cup solid veg. shortening. Also, I put all of the cinnamon filling on top. I used the 9x13 pan and baked for 40 min. It stayed moist for the entire 3 days it existed. I kept it covered in the fridge and microwaved each piece about 30 seconds before serving. This is a VERY MOIST cake and does not rise much, so do not expect it to be like a crumbly, fluffy or drier style coffee cake.
