Stove Top Tamale Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2004
This recipe was fantastic. Very easy & delicious. I added a small can of corn because I like the flavor in my tamale pie. I also left off the green onions. Nobody knows the difference. I used sour cream on the side as well. I'm making it again tonight for company because it is so easy and yummy.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2006
These cookies were FANTASTIC. I read some of the previous reviews and decided to add some chopped up candied ginger. I cut up the ginger in tiny pieces and added just a little bit of the flour to it so they didn't stick together. Worked out great! Served them with Thanksgiving dessert. Thank you Amy!

Cranberry-Black Cherry Gelatin Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2006
This was delicious. I wanted to use cranberry jello but couldn't find any. So I used raspberry jello and instead of hot water, I used light cranberry juice. I didn't add the nuts. Other than that, I did everything the same. Turned out GREAT. Yummy. Will make again.

Pumpkin Bars II

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2006
I love these bars. I decided to use 1 c. white sugar and 1 c. brown sugar instead of the 2 c. white sugar in the recipe. It turned out great. I like the depth of flavor the brown sugar added to it. Thank you Amy.

Microwave Oven Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2006
I've made this recipe several times now and it's AMAZING. My mom's been making brittle the old fashioned way for a long time, but this is SOOOOO much easier. I LOVE IT! I like to use any other nuts but peanuts because they give my brother-in-law migranes. All nuts work with this recipe. Thank you Linda C.

Apple Honey Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2007
I used granny smith apples and followed the recipe exactly but I didn't put any nuts in. It was AMAZING to say the least. I took it to a family Rosh Hashanah dinner and they kept sneaking back to eat more of it. Did I say it was AMAZING? Try it!!! It's really good and easy to make as well. Thanks you Jayda!!!

Barbeque Beef Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2008
This was so quick & easy. I cut the recipe in half. I used 1lb. ground beef, 1/2 chopped onion, 8oz. can of corn, 14.5oz. can of petite cut diced tomatoes and 1 pkg corn muffin mix in an 8in. square pan. I read the previous reviews and started off with 1/2 c. bbq sauce. I added about another 1/4 c. Baked for 20 minutes. Be careful. Top looked done and even toothpick was clean but some of the cornbread underneath was a little gooey. I would bake it another 5 minutes.

I looked at this recipe and decided to try it for my daughter's birthday party!!! It was the first time I made kugel from scratch. WOW!!!! It got incredible reviews from all of our guests. I basically doubled the recipe. I did more than double the butter and cream cheese. I didn't use the sour cream or the cottage cheese. I did everything else. I put it in two 13x9 pans and baked as directed. I chilled overnight and cut into squares for serving on the buffet. It was AMAZING!!!! It will now be my go to kugel recipe. Thanks!!!!

Fluffy Pudding Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
It really wasn't as good as I expected. Once it was done, it tasted more like store bought then homemade. I'm really looking for a good milk chocolate frosting.

Tres Leches (Milk Cake)

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
This cake turned out divine!!! I did heed the advice of some previous posters and seperated my eggs. Cake was very light and "spongy". I poured the amount of milk called for with no changes and it turned out beautifully. I did simple whipped cream on top with very little sugar in it. My BIL told me this was his new favorite cake and requested it for his birthday!!!
