Fresh Peach Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2011
I "hate" to be one of THOSE people who see a recipe and change most EVERYTHING about it but here goes. I hope this helps someone? I used 3 "medium" ripe peaces and cut into bite size pieces. I used 1/2 c. of water and only 1 Tablespoon of cornstarch....a healthy "pinch" of nutmeg and used brown sugar instead of white and NO almond extract. It was perfect with loads of fresh peach taste. This recipe is a GREAT "base" recipe and sometimes that's more then you need. THANK YOU SO MUCH for posting this!! By the way....we used it on pancakes and will use the small bit left on ice-cream.

Meringue II

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2006
OMGosh!! I am "merinqueingly" challenged to say the least! I thought this one sounded like a winner and boy-howdy was it ever! I cut back on the vanilla by 1/2 and may use a little less sugar next time but this one is printed and in my cookbook for ever now. Thanks!

Meatloaf with Italian Sausage

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2010
Ya know....I had some ground beef and some italian sausage leftover and found this recipe and said "hmmm, interesting". I had my doubts but made it anyway.....can you say OMGosh GOOD! I did not use the worsestershire sauce or green pepper (personal taste thing) and I scaled down the serving size as well. If you are thinking like I did and thought this sounded strange then let me say.....MAKE IT and be amazed as I was. My picky hubby who is not even into meatloaf loved this and said he could eat it again. A million thanks for sharing this different but delicious recipe.

Bride's Peach Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2010
5 WHOPPIN' stars! OK, I did make one change.....my peaches are in season and VERY juicy and sweet I did not even add the white sugar only the 1/4 cup brown called for. (PACKED by the way) OMGosh it was perfect.....all the flavors just blended perfectly and my pie was not uber sweet which we do not like. A MILLION thanks for sharing this amazing yet so, so simple recipe! **By the way I followed this to the letter except for the sugar and the pie set up perfectly**

Creamy Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2008
I made this thinking it would be super simple and I had all the ingredients. AFTER I got it cooking I had MAJOR doubts about it but it was to late to turn back so I hoped for the best. It was GREAT! So good! NO KIDDING! We served the sauce over rice and my husband RAVED and he is NOT a big pork fan. This one goes into my cookbook and I will make it again. The ONLY change I made was I did not use any salt (the bacon is salty enough) and I didn't use the paprika. THANKS for posting this most excellent dish!

Grandma's Secret Pie Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2006
I use lard (1 cup only) and make sure it is well chilled before using....I use my food processor and it comes together in a perfect ball which I can use right away....the trick to this crust is you want it chilled (not cold) but room temp. dough will give you fits. I get 3 crusts out of this recipe and it freezes beautifully for later use. This one is truly a "no brainer"...thanks for sharing this recipe!!!

Shortbread Christmas Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2012
I did these in my Cuisinart food processor and thought "what a horrible and dry mess"....I dumped these onto a big piece of wax paper and started "working it" a tad bit and it came together so I rolled it out and chilled. I cut out the entire thing, baked and was totally tickled when I baked the BEST "no spread and no weird shaped" Christmas cookies. They cut and baked perfect and I have them frozen for decorating in another week. This was an excellent recipe so if they seem dry to you or weird KEEP THE FAITH and keep going and you will be rewarded! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this recipe!!

Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2010
This is OMGosh EASY and just a perfect amount for 2 people which I LOVE! I used my mini-cuisinart to do the topping which made my work not seem like work at all. You can also play around with this one and not mess it up...at least I have not yet. MANY THANKS for sharing this wonderful yet simple recipe.

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
I can NOT figure out how these got ANY bad reviews. I just made mine and they have cooled and I cut one is half because it's to close to dinner....I ate the ENTIRE cookie. **head hung in shame** These are FABU and I followed the recipe to the letter. BUT....ROOM TEMP butter and eggs ladies and this is where a Kitchen-Aid mixer comes in really handy. I take my butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla and WHIP them until thick and creamy. I measured out my flour into a sieve along with my baking soda and a PINCH OF SALT (how that got omitted is a mystery to me) and sifted it together then stired in my chocolate chips and walnuts.....then dumped into my whipped butter mix and blend until MIXED ONLY! It's very important to NOT overbeat any cookie flour mixture. These came out crispy/buttery around the edges and soft in the middle. I used a BIG cookie scoop and got 8 cookies and I did NOT flatten them by the way. I hope this helps someone. These are a nice break from the Toll House recipe I normally use and I WILL make them again.

Serendipity Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
5 + 5 stars! I used my Kitchen Aid mixer to make the dough and used my indoor grill to grill it since it's winter here. It turned out great! Hubby said "what WILL we do with it all"? (I divided the dough into 8 pieces and flattned & grilled) Well...I thought about that and had an idea. PIZZA! After it's baked it reminds me of that pre-made crust you can get in plastic at the store....how good would THAT be? It made a GREAT turkey wrap as well. I can think of many uses for this yummy bread. I made the recipe exactly as directed and it was perfect! THANK YOU FOR POSTING.

Banana Flips

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
How to review this masterpiece? Hmmmm....Well FIRST it's a 10 star recipe! I have made this twice now WITH the advice of using powdered sugar instead of granular. AND....I had an old banana and added that to the cake for kicks & giggles (will ALWAYS do that!). Now for the "filling"...I could NOT find any banana extract on the day I was to make this SO I purchased some Loran's Banana Cream Oil...yes the kind used for candy making...BUT you CAN add it to other things as well. I put in a DROP at a time just until I got a very "light" banana flavor and was I glad I did...it balanced out the MEGA MOIST banana cake with the not so "sweet" filling. Am I gushing? :-) It's a GREAT recipe and something different to do with an old banana or two! THANKS FOR POSTING THIS...really!

Food Processor Chocolate Whipped Cream Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
CURL YOUR TOES, FINGERS AND CROSS YOUR EYES GOOD! N'uff said? LOL....but really, I made a "stabilized" version of this which only adds gelatin so the whipped cream won't fall apart but other then that followed to the letter and WOWZER-DOWZER it's yummy! I bake smaller cakes and freeze them for later use since we are only 2 people here and this went on a freezer cake for dessert tonight! THANK A GA-ZALLION times for sharing this puppy.

Bolognese Sauce with Meat

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2008
I LOVED IT! OMGosh..so, so good! I DID add an extra tomato and cut BACK on the salt since the prosciutto is salty...I actually used about 1/4 teasp. of salt. Now...bad news..my husband did NOT like it...he prefers a WETTER sauce. This is not a coat your pasta with tomato sauce-sauce. To me it's more the consistancy of a sloppy joe...but...tossed in pasta it WILL coat the noodles with flavor. I am giving it 5 BIG stars for ME personally...I WILL make it again but make it more "saucy" for hubby. THANKS for such a GREAT recipe!

Crusty Potato Bread

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
This is one of the BEST bread machine recipes I have tried! Wonderful "crusty" bread as promised and I steal a bit o'dough for a couple cinnamon rolls when I make white bread dough and OMGosh! Curl your toes good as well. This pup is a full time keeper and thanks for sharing. My dough was a tad dry so I adjusted (albiet badly) and had to add more flour but still perfect. 5+5 STARS!

Portuguese Custard Tarts - Pasteis de Nata

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2011
Giving a good SOLID 4 stars. Can't give 'em a fiver cause hubby said custard was "bland". I really liked them. BUT.....this is a GOOD "base" recipe and making them gave me loads of ideas. Thanks for posting this and by the way.....mine browned up and cooked GREAT and I just used an old fashioned cupcake pan.

Oatmeal Banana Raisin Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
Well...they ARE good and Lord KNOWS how sick I am of banana bread. Gotta say...not "cookie" like...but for me they came out "cakey"...but GOOD! Don't get me wrong...A GREAT change from banana bread and I would make again. By the way I used REAL butter and golden raisins and 3 banana's in mine. **Am bumping from 4 to 5 STARS!** AFTER letting them sit overnight I would give these 20 stars! Gave some away to friends since this recipe makes so much and am still noshing on mine...these are even BETTER when they sit a day or two. SO....5 STARS! Like I said a GREAT change from banana bread and muffins! Next time I will try some crushed pineapple and nuts in these....just for kicks and giggles.

Chocolate Meringue Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2012
I think these are one of those "stupid simple" recipes. I did not add the chocolate chips but did increase the cooca (Hershey's Dark) by 1/2 Tablespoon. I piped these out to look like kisses and baked for 20 minutes only and let cool. Once cool they melted in my mouth. I had only made these because I had some egg whites I had to use but these are going in my "cookie" gift boxes. I used my KitchenAid mixer and beat the egg whites until they were "dry" and folded in the cocoa.....easy, BUT you have to make sure you beat the egg whites really good. THANK YOU FOR SHARING....yum!

Creme Brulee

Reviewed: May 13, 2012
Just do what CHEFPEON says to do and you won't have any issues. It's not necessary to pre-cook in a double boiler at all. I tell people I make creme brulee and they think I am "magical" but it's a stupid simple thing to make. Just use good ingredients and vanilla and everything will be perfect. By the way I use vanilla PASTE and not liquid extract and IMHO it gives it a more pure vanilla taste.

Garlic Salmon

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
FINALLY! EUREKA! PRAISE THE LORD! OK, that being said.....I have never and I mean never-ever cooked a decent piece of salmon for hubby. THIS WAS IT! WA-LA.....so simple. BUT, I followed another reviewers suggestion and mixed soft butter w/dill and garlic and brushed lemon juice over it (not TO much) gave it the sea salt and fresh cracked pepper treatment and wrapped in foil and cooked in a HOT oven (450) for 6-7 min. for a "thinner" piece. Hubby ate the whole piece......head no longer hung in shame here. THANK YOU for this recipe......needless to say: IT's a KEEPER!

Hot Fudge Sauce II

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2011
WOW! GREAT! That being said this is what "I" did for our tastes. We love DARK chocolate sooooo.......I used the 4 sqrs. of unsweet. chocolate and cut the sugar to 2/3 cups and put in 2 Tablesp. of butter and used Vanilla paste....and my secret ingredient? Espresso powder (1/2 tsp.)....that's IT.....DARK CHOCOLATE SAUCE.....made an entire jar which is going camping with us next week. SO.....GREAT RECIPE and excellent suggestions from the other reviewers. THANKS ALL and THANKS Erin for posting this! By the way.....yes, I used the fattening cream because if I am having real hot fudge I am having the REAL deal.
