Extra Easy Hummus

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2006
This hummus was so yummy! Thank you for sharing. I have afeeling I'll be making it a lot! I made a few changes: I didn't put all the cumin as I didn't want it to overpower the other lovely tastes. I also cut some of the salt as it was getting pretty salty. I added loads of fresh parsley and it turned it green! But it looked and tasted soo much like guacamole that way! Yuummmm! I also added a few squirts of lemon juice. Put it all in the vita-mix and ta-dah! I made the recipe times 6 for our church luncheon. We're having it with pita bread. Its definitely a keeper. Thanks again!

Pumpkin Cake III

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2005
This cake was wonderful! It tastes like a pumpkin roll without all the fuss. I used the "Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting" from this site for a light and delicious topping. I also made the following changes: I used 2 15oz. cans of pumpkin for a little more of a pumpkiny taste and added 1/4 cup packed brown sugar. I omitted all the spices and used 3 1/4 t. pumpkin pie spice instead. Self rising flour worked great for me without the use of salt, soda, or baking powder. I baked in a 9X13 pan and had to adjust the baking time considerably. It took 75 minutes to bake on 350 degrees for me. It was very moist and I had to keep it in the fridge due to the cream cheese icing, but it was still lovely. Surprisingly, I didn't think it tasted that much like carrot cake, but more like pumpkin roll. I was very impressed with this recipe overall and have a feeling I'll be making it again and again. Thanks for sharing!

Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2004
I used this for a 9" round layer cake that I made for a baby shower. It turned out great! Everyone raved and wanted the recipe. It was not too sweet/rich, but just right. Nice and creamy too. Thanks for the recipe. This is a keeper to use on any cake or cookies.

Banana Cream Pie I

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2004
This was truly a disaster. After following the directions and stirring the custard, it was still thin as water. I proceeded to stir with the electric mixer, thinking I may have not stirred vigorously enough. It ended up being a semi-thick froth which eventually turned back into soup after pouring over crust. I tried the custard two times and had the same results. I would not recommend this because it seems that unless you have the perfect temp. and cook the perfect amount of time and stir just enough...it ends up a flop and the money spent for it goes down the drain.

Brunch on the Bayou

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2004
I tried this for brunch for my family along with fresh fruit salad and breakfast potatoes. It was definitely "different" at first, but was quite good! Family liked it and the leftovers tasted even better the next day. Great recipe that I will make again when I want to impress. Thanks for this one!

Orange Cream Cake I

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2004
I found this to be a delightful dessert! I made it twice last summer and hope to make it again this year. I added a can of mandarin orange pieces with juice to the cake mix. It was good! The beauty of cakes using boxed cake mixes as the basis is that you don't have to worry about it turning out too dry or too bland. And when you want to try something new without messing up, this is the way to go. I found this cake wonderfully moist, but not "too wet" at all. It was a big hit with my family and everyone who tasted it! Thanks for this easy recipe for us ladies who love to surprise our families with new recipes, but do not have a lot of preparation time!

Cornbread Salad I

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2004
I found this unusual recipe to be quite tasty. I took it to a family reunion and got many compliments and some even asked for the recipe. This recipe could easily be made more healthy for the dieters out there by using fat free mayo and sour cream and lite cheese. You could also substitute the bacon for turkey bacon or omit it all together. The cornbread and beans makes this a very filling side dish. The fresh veggies give it just the right crunch and a burst of flavor. I will definitely make this again, but not for awhile because even after a large gathering I have half left! It makes quite a lot. Next time, I will probably half the recipe. Thanks again.

Easy Decadent Truffles

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2003
I am giving this recipe 5 stars because it is probably the only candy recipe that turned out exactly as it claimed for me. It made exactly 60 truffles, they were easy, and the taste was like something from a gourmet candy shop. The only thing is that the longer they sit, they do tend to dry out as any candy, but still very impressive! I used the vanilla to flavor them and they were great. I rolled half of them in ground walnuts and half in a mixture of ground almonds and Christmas sprinkles. Everyone loved them and they were pleasing to the eye as well.

Grandpa's Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2003
I had to make 3 batches of this before I could get it to set. It simply would not get hard! Then when it did set, it was too firm. I finally realized I wasn't cooking it long enough, but for all the waste and constant stirring over a hot stove, the taste was realy no better than the easy marshmallow creme kind in my opinion.

Bonbons

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2003
These would have been PERFECT...if the filling was a bit more firm. I have made them several times and they end up being patties instead of balls because the filling just isn't as firm as I would like. They are also kind of hard to keep together when dipping in chocolate as well. However, once they are finished, the taste is sensational and everyone raves over them! They are truly a rich delight for coconut lovers.

Mint Patties

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2003
This was quite a disaster. I was looking for a good mint patty recipe with a firm filling, however even after FREEZING the mint filling, it was not firm enough to form a ball or a patty for that matter. So because I did not want to waste all of the expensive ingredients, I dropped the filling by spoonfuls onto wax paper and drizzled melted chocolate on top. I couldn't even peel them off the wax paper they were so sticky! I tasted of one and ended up throwing the rest away as they were not at all presentable.

Hurricane's Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2003
Lovely dish! Very hearty and filling as well as very tasty! It's a meal in one dish! Really convenient to make ahead and refrigerate until needed. I added sliced water chesnuts for a crunch and mushroom pieces. This was a hit with my family. I also made up a second one to take to some friends who had a death in the family. They loved it too. This gives a nice twist to the regular "stuffing with chicken" dishes. The gravy and veggies add so much flavor! Thanks for this wonderful recipe!
