Autumn Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2008
So easy and delicious! This was the first cheesecake I ever made, and it came out perfectly. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to use roasted pecans or raw pecans. I opted for the roasted pecans, and they worked perfectly. So, so yummy! My husband really loves it, too, and is already asking me to make it again for him and his pals next week. I didn't make any changes to the recipe whatsoever, and I definitely did not have to bake it in a water bath. It turned out absolutely perfect as is.

Awesome Eggplant Rollatine

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2008
Unlike other reviewers, I didn't think this recipe was too messy. With the help of my husband, the work went quickly and cleanly. This recipe gets three stars because I didn't think it was very tasty. My husband loved it and wolfed it down. For me, I couldn't eat the fried eggplant (and I love eggplant!). The frying just made it too heavy. I ended up eating the sauce and the cheese and spinach with bread. That part tasted just fine, but because of the eggplant, I won't make this again.

Coconut Curry Tofu

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2008
I love (love, love, love) this recipe. I make it for dinner every month or so, and it makes delicious leftovers for lunch the next day! I've never used fresh ginger in the coconut curry tofu. I use about 1/2 a tsp of ground ginger instead of the 1 tsp of fresh ginger. It works just fine!

Cinnamon Ice Cream

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2008
This recipe was fine; the consistency was perfect. I've made it twice so far, and both times, I've thought that its flavor was fine. However, it has an after-taste to it, and it's pretty heavy. Of all the recipes I've used with my ice cream maker, this is the least spectacular.

Giant Spice Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2008
When these cookies first came out of the oven, they were perfect. The house smelled of spices, and they tasted fabulous. As they cooled on the wire racks, though, they started to get hard... and harder and harder. When they were completely cooled, they were like little bricks. We couldn't bite into them! They weren't burnt, just rock hard. With the simple list of ingredients, I know it wasn't something I skipped or missed. They're just... really, really hard.

Buckeye Balls

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2008
Ewww, these were way too sweet. I mixed in more peanut butter after trying the first batch to make it less sweet, but that changed its consistency. My husband thought they were fine, but only ate a couple. We threw most of them away.

The South Mission Mango

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2008
The drink was very strong. In addition to decreasing the rum, I'd really cut back on the pina colada mix as well.

Summer Bean Salad II

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2008
This bean salad is pretty good. Next time, I think I'll use cilantro instead of basil to make it taste really fresh. I had a can of butter beans in the cupboard and added it to the recipe (in addition to the kidney beans). To compensate, I added some extra corn, tomatoes, onion and lime juice. I ended up with a *lot* of salad, but it tastes great!

Blueberry Drop Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2008
I loved these cookies! My husband really enjoyed them, too. I opted to use the full amount of almond extract (no vanilla like some people recommended). I'm glad I did! The almond and the zest make the cookies so flavorful. My cookies didn't spread out a lot on the pan like a lot of other people experienced. They came out with the texture exactly of a cookie. Yummo! The only changes I made to the recipe were that I used the butter-flavored Crisco shortening, and I added about a third of a cup extra blueberries. They came out perfectly! Also, I live in high altitude. The 12 minutes were plenty to cook the cookies at high altitude!

Stuffed Green Peppers

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2007
My favorite thing about this recipe is that it's easy and takes very few ingredients. Perfect for a budget! And it tastes very yummy. I made them tonight, and my husband said they're his new favorite stuffed peppers. I had some garlic and onion on hand, so I chopped some up and sauteed it in some olive oil. After about five minutes, I turned the temperature down and added my can of tomato sauce. It gave the sauce more flavor. Also, not all the filling fit into my peppers. Maybe I bought too small of peppers? So I added the remainder of the filling to the tomato sauce, too.

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2007
This was so, so yummy. My husband and I were so thrilled with the pumpkin bread, that we each took some to our coworkers and family for them to try! Since I didn't use walnuts, I added extra chocolate chips, and I also doubled the cinnamon. Yum! I made this recipe a second time and used only 2 and a half cups of sugar. I still doubled the cinnamon, and it came out delicious! This time, I used mini loaf pans. They were done in 40 minutes.

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2007
I followed another reviewer's advice and put the root vegetables in first. After about 15 minutes, I added in the onion and peppers (and I added 4 peeled and halved cloves of garlic!) and cooked it for about 20 more minutes. I wanted to serve this as a main dish, so after it came out of the oven, I stirred in about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of leftover jarred spaghetti sauce. The sauce made it moist so we could eat it over rice.

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2007
I love how easy this recipe is, and it came out the perfect consistancy. However, it's way too sweet for my taste. My husband described it as a good dessert. Perhaps it was the apples I bought? Anyway, I'll make this again, but next time, I won't add any sugar.

Mango Sorbet

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2007
This sorbet is so, so good. To make simple syrup, I boiled a cup of water and then stirred in a cup of sugar until the sugar was dissolved. To give it more fruit flavor, I added the lime zest from two limes to the water before I boiled it. Once the simple syrup was made, I added the lime juice from both limes. Once it cooled a bit, I put in in the fridge for a while. I ended up with more than a cup of simple syrup, so I just used a cup of it and am saving the rest to make the recipe again. Very yummy! It tastes very fresh.

Classic Whiskey Sour

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2007
I used some lime simple syrup I had leftover from another recipe. My husband, who's a big whiskey drinker, loved it.

Old Fashioned Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2007
I thought this recipe had a lot of potential... I loved the basic idea of the dessert, but it was way to sweet for my husband and me. Also, we didn't taste much spice. I would make this again because it was so unique (and the apples came out so tender!), but next time, I'm going to add a lot more cinnamon and nutmeg and cut back on the sugar.

Peanut Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2007
This soup is so good! I used vegetable stock instead of chicken stock to make it vegetarian-friendly, and I also snuck in an extra clove of garlic. My husband and I ate it with some crusty Frech bread, and it's very tasty. Next time, I plan on adding more flour to give it more thickness, and I might try a peanut butter that's not quite as sweet (we used Skippy).

Lemon Sorbet

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2007
With our ice cream maker, the sorbet was ready to eat after 15 minutes of freezing. It was delicious! We used Perrier instead of mineral water. For the lemon peel and juice, we used only the zest and the juice of two lemons. So yummy! Next time we're going to double the recipe.

The Best Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2007
This lemon bars are fantastic! At first, we couldn't really taste much lemon and were disappointed. We put them in the fridge for a day, and when we ate them cold... wow! lemony and delicious!

Stuffed Eggplant Parmesan

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2006
This recipe was delicious. I added extra garlic, but other than that, I stuck to the recipe. The only problem I found was that the eggplant shells were never tender enough to eat, but everyone was happy just to eat the inside mixture with garlic bread, and it was fantastic!
