MMMmmm Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2003
Okay, the frosting made the very top of the cake taste good, but the rest of the cake was dry, crumbly, and could not possibly be served to a guest. I keep re-reading the recipe, to see if I did something wrong, considering the previous review, but I followed it to a tee, and generally have excellent success with cakes.

Fantastic pie--delicious, but even before the first bite, pretty to see on the table!

Buffalo Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2004
She isn't kidding when she says they like it HOT! I *loved* the shrimp just after frying in the double-coating; the sauce was a bit hard for me to take, but I can see where a real leather-tongue, like one of my sons, would love it! Maybe I am just getting old! Delicious coating.

Cappuccino Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2006
These were terrific! I made them to ship to overseas military, for a Sunday Schoo lclass Christmas project, since the original post said they freeze well; they were so good, I had to make another (huge!) batch for our family!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2007
I am trying to figure out what went wrong, for the people who gave this recipe a bad rating; these are the most delicious brownies I think I have ever made in my life, and I have made a lot of brownies. They are gooey without tasting underdone, they are sinfully rich as far as chocolate flavor; I frosted them, as per another user's suggestion, ten minutes out of the oven--I did use a few drops of milk, to make the frosting spreadable--and the frosting is to die for. I do understand the one -star rater who said she did not like the honey taste in the frosting--though it is very mild--but that could be easily remedied by leaving it out entirely. I have to wonder what the one-star raters LIKE in brownies. This recipe is perfect. It is a keeper, and will be THE recipe in our house from now on.

Pumpkin Buns

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2007
I used fresh pumpkin which I had pureed, and left everything else the same. These were delicious! They turned out warm and chewy, with an almost caramel taste to them. Absolutely perfect with hot tea or coffee on a wintry afternoon. I will be making these again.

Italian Bread Bowls

Lentil Soup III

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2007
Taking hints from other reviews, I snazzed up the seasonings, and got a hit! When my teenagers will eat a hearty healthy soup like this one, and ask for seconds, we have success. I sauteed the onion, 4 cloves of garlic, and two bay leaves in olive oil, then added the rest of the ingredients, including two chicken bullion cubes, since I keep my homemade stock on the plain side. I salted and peppered throughout the cooking process, as needed, and even added a dash or two of garlic powder at the end. I think one must look at this as a soup that one must season to taste. We love it! I served it with Italian bread bowls, from this site; YUM!

Slow Cooker Sausage with Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2008
No leftovers! And I used homemade saude from the freezer, but I am sure it would be great with the store-bought. Absolutely delicious.

Slow Cooker London Broil

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2008
Yes, it was easy, but we had leftovers that no one wanted, and that is significant, to me. So-so beef supper; not bad, but nothing to rave about.

Slow-Cooker Barbecue Ribs

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2008
Out of this world flavor! I had to substitute salsa for the chili sauce, and it was still scrumptious. No leftovers, and family wants it again and again.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2008
Sooo easy, and sooo delicious! TURN OFF THE CROCK POT as soon as it is done, or those second-helping dumplings will be tough. We love this dinner.

You cannot beat this for presentation and taste. It is a family favorite, and I had to stop "saving" it for special occasions only, as we all love it.

To DIE for, but you have to be a true coconut lover! I am, and this just could not have been loaded with more coconut flavor.
