Strawberry Pie II

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2013
I modified and used the 3/4 cup sugar, 1/2 cup water. I also sliced the strawberries layered them on bottom and chopped the rest. This is my new favorite pie!

Valentino's Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2009
This is the easiest pizza crust recipe you will ever find.I made this as my first attempt to make homemade pizza and it was perfect. I attempted another recipe and failed so I am without a doubt sicking to his FOREVER! I have since made it 4 times and it is great every time. The only thing I do different is after it cooks in the pan I move it to a pizza screen and bake for about 5 min to give the bottom more of a crunch. Enjoy

Vegetarian Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2009
I made as is and it was great. It had a lovely flavor and a nice spicy bite not at all over powering. Everything was very well blended.

Vegetarian Korma

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2009
I made this dish minus the cashews and jalapeno. According to Madhur Jaffrey (very renowned Indian chef) Jalapenos should never be used in Indian cooking so I used canned green chili's and it was delicious. I omitted the cashews as a personal preference.

Indian Style Basmati Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
The flavor is great but I should have trusted my instinct and used less water. The rice was WAY TOO MOIST! I would suggest using only 2 cups of water.

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007
This was delicious. NOTE I did not use sea salt I used kosher by mistake. I served with potato rolls and the Spanish Slaw recipe (I added carrots) on this site. Delicious left over ideas... Pull apart very fine and serve on toast topped with fried egg (cooking egg over easy a must or dish will be too dry) Also Pull apart very fine mix in your favorite mecican seasonings and serve over rice and beans. YUMMMMMY

Scrambled Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2007
Could have been done better. Potatoes added a soggy texture. I did try to broil them to give them a little more crunchiness but still a sloppy gloppy mess. Will try my own creation next time.

Banana Bread V

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2006
Tried this tonight and it was Wonderful I too did the 1/3 brown sugar 1/3 white sugar adjustment and YUMMY YUMM YUMM and not too sweet. I think next time I might just add 1 more bananna for a little more banana flavor. I made it in a bundt pan like another reviewer and didnt care for that because the peices cut funny but other than that this will be the one!

Overnight Cinnamon Rolls I

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2006
I enjoyed the balance of sweetness as the dough was not super sweet however the dough did seem to be a bit on the heavy side. This was my first time baking with yeast so maybe maybe it was something I did or failed to do. I also used the food processor to bring together the ingredients so maybe that had something to do with it. I will try this one again!!!!
