Blueberry Ricotta Squares

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2014
Finally...exactly what I needed. Have been buying fresh sweet cherries like a madwoman. Even splurged on a cherry pitter (OXO, fabulous). Have made a couple muffin recipes and several batches of Cherry Compote for the freezer (David Leibovitz's recipe). Have been trying to find some sort of cake to use the cherries in (seems like they all use pie filling). Gave up on that and decided to find a recipe to use the last cup of ricotta cheese I had. Came across this recipe and thouht...why not try with fresh cherries. So I subbed chopped cherries for the blueberries and almond extract (1/4 tsp) for the lemon extract and for the vanilla (1/4 tsp). Just took it out of the oven and had a piece while still warm. It is heavenly. Glad I cut down on the almond extract in the bottom layer. Just right. The top did not brown evenly (as mentioned by another reviewer). I think that is just the way that combo of eggs and ricotta does. Well, off to get another piece! ;-)) then off to the store for more ricotta. I do have blueberries to use up!

Cheesecake Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2014
Fixed these yesterday for an afternoon card game, twelve attendees. Everyone LOVED it and wanted recipe. In the interest of full-disclosure, I did a couple modifications (the way my mother used to fix). Pecans instead of walnuts-personal preference. Also, put a bit more than half of pastry mixture in bottom. Baked for 15 minutes. Poured cream cheese mixture over. Crumbled remaining pastry mixture over it. Baked for 20 minutes.

Sun-Dried Tomato and Pesto Cheese Spread

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2012
Yum yum!! I made it per directions except: (1) used reduced-fat cream cheese; and, (2) layered cream cheese, tomato, cream cheese, pesto, cream cheese. I do wish I'd used up all the cream cheese - maybe added to tomato mixture - which I found a bit overpowering. The dinner guests were totally impressed and fought for the left-overs.

Flan Mexicano (Mexican Flan)

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2012
I took this to a dinner party this evening. RAVE reviews. I made it according to directions except I substituted evaporated milk for the whole milk, orange juice and cornstarch. I was in the mood for plain old flan. But, next time I'm trying the recipe as written. Well done, Tigerlily (Note: does anyone know why there were darker *solid* pieces of the caramel sauce when I turned over the flan? Didn't hurt the flan - just didn't look perfect.) UPDATE: 9/29/12. Made it again - this time with the orange juice & peel. It was fabulous - the orange flavoring was more of a hint, not overpowering. All the dinner guests loved it. The caramel sauce was perfect this time.

Company Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2012
My husband's comment: This is SUPERB. I'll second that. Although it cracked - who cares? It is truly the best. I will admit that I'm on the fence tho' about the crust. I might like a graham cracker crust better (certainly easier). Hmmm - guess that means another cheesecake in the near future to find out!

Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2012
Used this recipe for tonight's dinner. Very tasty. Pretty moist considering it is a loin which is often dry - at least when I cook it. Read some of the negative comments and have the following input. (1) the "Cook Time" lists 2 hours, yet the recipe itself says 1 hour. My 2 pound loin was ready in just over 1 hour. (2) I used 1 tsp. of rosemary and it was plenty for me (others might like more.) Personally I would never use POWDERED rosemary (which at least one person did). If you use powdered, do NOT use 1 Tablespoon - maybe a teaspoon (or less).

Chicken Tortilla Soup I

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2012
Nothing fancy - just a great (and EASY) soup to make. I used canned chicken because of time constraints. It freezes well so I plan on making a double batch soon.
