Red, White, and Blueberry Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2003
I needed a very special birthday cake for the 4th of July. Doubling the recipe and baking in a deep springform pan, I outlined a large star in blueberries, then stacked slices of strawberries in the center, topped with jelly. Baking time was increased to one hour, definitely put tinfoil cap around crust when baking that last hour. I think this recipe will become a July 4th tradition!

Jollof Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2004
Our family really enjoyed this recipe. We're spicy food lovers, so I increased the cayenne and added a few more peppers. After preparing the meat, I finished cooking in the crockpot. Definitely will make again!

Caramel Flan

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2004
After serving a spicy mexican-style dinner, this was the perfect, simple, creamy dessert. The only tough part is browning the sugar, but definitely worth the effort. My picky teenager requested the flan again right away.

Grandma Minnie's Old Fashioned Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2004
I was looking for cookie recipes that would hold up well being sent to my son serving in the military overseas. He reported that the cookies traveled well and were yummy.

Almond Buttercrunch Candy I

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2004
This was my family's favorite new Christmas candy this year. I would recommend using a candy thermometer, as the right heat is critical for cohesiveness to the other ingredient layers. Very simple prep. Family gobbled it up and wanted more!

Apple Cheddar Cheese Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2004
For those of us who like a slice of cheddar cheese with hot apple pie, this recipe is great. My crust didn't turn out as well as I'd like it, but I seem to be 'pie crust challenged' and have not yet worked out a technique for flaky, tender crust.

Candy Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2004
These were really yummy when eaten the same day as prepared. The pieces that survived the first day of gobbling turned a little tough and chewy the next day. Perhaps there was to much humidity in the air and they should be stored in an airtight container. I definitely will make this recipe for my family again.

Carne Con Chilies

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2004
My whole family loved this recipe, including picky teenager! I left out the red hot peppers, so the "heat" was adjustable for everyone's taste by adding their own red pepper flakes. Next time I will try doubling the sauce recipe because it was good ladled over rice/black beans with cheese on the side.

Absolutely Sinful Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2004
This is now my husband's absolute favorite cookie! I doubled the chocolate squares so it was a deep, dark chocolate appearance, and reduced the baking powder by half so that the cookie was more chewy than caky. They also travel well, as I send 2 dozen to my son serving in Iraq, sealed in tupperware. After 3 weeks in the mail, he said they were still soft and chewy and his buddies request more asap!

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2004
I used half ground turkey, half beef, with slices of turkey bacon on the bottom. The sauce juiced up the turkey flavor, and my picky husband gobbled it up!

Blueberry French Toast

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2005
My family raved about this recipe, which I served for a Christmas brunch. I substituted cranberries for the blueberries. The tartness counter-balanced the sweetness nicely, was less expensive than blueberries, plus looked more Christmas-y. Thank you for this new family favorite.

Pseudo Sourdough for the Bread Machine

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2005
This recipe was very good as printed. I also did another version that turned out well to serve with Mexican dishes: add finely chopped fresh garlic and jalepeno peppers (to taste, I put in 4 of each), and 2 T. cornmeal.

Monterey Chicken with Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2005
Really great recipe! I used small new red potato halves, letting this roast to a slight crispiness. Then doubled all other ingredients to top chicken. Thanks so much for this new family favorite.

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2005
I have prepared this two ways: hot and cold. Fried and crumbled bacon, then added all dressing ingredients till sugar dissolved. Pour this hot dressing over spinach/strawberries: outa this world! Also delicious prepared cold. Adding chicken chunks and kiwi is another wonderful variation for a complete, colorful meal in a bowl!

Simple But Awesome Lemon Pepper Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2005
We added more ground pepper to the lemon pepper and rubbed it into the chops, then grilled on the bbq. Tossed the butter, olive oil and W sauce into a pan with sliced mushrooms and onions, spooning over the grilled chops. Served with smashed garlic potatoes to help your tongue deal with the pepper: yummy!
