Sweet, Salty, Spicy Party Nuts

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2014
Excellent! I add a bit more chili powder for extra zing. If using a nonstick cookie sheet, the foil is optional.

Cauliflower Fritters

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2014
This was a big hit with my family! I was looking for a new way to serve cauliflower. It was easy to make - I grated the cauliflower with my KitchenAid attachment. I did cook them in the oil, but I would be tempted to try my nonstick pancake griddle next time...

Freezer Pie Filling

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2013
I have a question - do you need to cook the pie filling before freezing it??? I assumed not and froze as is. Well, I just tried baking my first cherry pie like this, and it was quite liquidy. We ate it out of bowls! The taste was good, but...And, I don't know what kind of tapioca I have, but it did not absorb much liquid during its cooking time in the oven.

Apple Squares

Followed others' suggestions of more apple, and it was terrific!

Brown Family's Favorite Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2013
I'm not sure about this one. I followed the recipe exactly, except for using fresh pumpkin and not putting on the streusel topping. The spices are off, somehow. Maybe too much nutmeg. I'll probably keep looking for THE recipe.

Nutty Granola II

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2013
Excellent! I only make the half the recipe at a time, and vary the dried fruits each time: cherries, raisins, apples, bananas, figs. Miniature chocolate chips are a staple, though!

Interesting, but nothing really special.

Fresh Fig Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2013
I doubled the recipe but could've stayed with the original - it easily made double what was indicated. My kids all enjoyed these, but we all agreed that if you're looking for a taste of figs, this recipe isn't it. However, if you're just looking for another way to use an excess of figs from the yard, this is good. The cookies are nutty and cakelike.

Autumn Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2013
Loved the apples on top. I took the advice of others and nuked them first to drain the excess juice; maybe I drained too much, as I thought the resulting cake was a bit too heavy for my taste. I may do differently next time.

Pesto

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2013
Mmmmm! Never knew it was this easy! I love garlic, but would still reduce the amount a bit next time. Maybe a bit less olive oil, too, as it was a bit liquidy. I took one reviewer's advice and froze it in ice cube trays.

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2013
This is the one! It definitely makes more than 24 cookies, though, probably at least twice that amount. I made the dough as is, then pressed 2-3 butterscotch chips into a couple of trays, and raisins into a few other trays. I didn't need to dip the fork in sugar before pressing, either. Next time, I may put a little less cinnamon, because my husband isn't a big fan, but, otherwise, these are terrific!

Aunt Joyce's Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: May 24, 2013
Sorry, but I made it exactly according to directions, only exception being I cooked it in a Bundt pan. The entire outer layer stuck to the pan (which had been well greased.) So, I couldn't serve it at my daughter's birthday party, but I could taste the cake. Hardly any chocolate flavor at all, too salty, and an aftertaste of baking soda.

Easy and Delicious Slow Cooker Cassoulet

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2012
My husband is French, we live in France, and I just acquired a crockpot, so I was eager to try this recipe. The whole family loved it! I was going to say that it needed more beans, but I just realized that I'd read the recipe wrong and thought it called for one can, not three. I happened to have chicken quarters on hand, so I used them, then removed the skin when it fell off. Made it a bit fattier, perhaps. My husband's suggestion was to add the sausage more at the end - he thought it got overcooked in the crockpot. Thanks for a great recipe!

Fresh Fig Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2012
I've made this twice, since we had an abundance of figs this year. The first time, I followed the recipe exactly, and while it was good, it was a bit heavy, almost gummy. It is not a light cake. The second time, I froze one of the layers, and just made half the topping for the other layer. While it was still a dense cake, this worked better for us. My husband, who is not a sweets-lover, really liked this.

Greek Lemon Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2012
Even after using lemon yogurt, and doubling the amount of lemon juice and zest, this cake still didn't have the tang I look for in a lemon cake. Maybe with a lemon glaze or syrup on top? The texture was more of a pound cake. It was a good cake, but I'll keep looking for a lemon cake recipe.

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2012
Living in France, I had to improvise somewhat, but still had spectacular results. I used regular sea salt and liquid smoke (brought back from the US), and cooked a regular pork roast in a Romertopf claypot at my oven's lowest temperature for the 20 hours. I might cut back a bit on the salt, but otherwise, my family raved about this :)
