Lobster Bisque

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2005
I followed other reviewer's suggestions to add tomato paste, garlic, and pepper. I was doubling the recipe so I used one of those small cans of tomato paste, 2 cloves of garlic crushed, and pepper to taste. I also used lowfat milk and fat free half and half and the soup was plenty creamy. I used shrimp instead of lobster and I didn't use worcestshire sauce because I didn't have any. With these modifications it was a fantastic bisque that my entire family, from the 5 year old to the 50 year old, really enjoyed.

Bacon-Flavored Dog Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
These were fairly easy to make, and the dough is so thick and pliable that it was super easy to roll them out and make bone-shaped cookie cut-outs. I added 2 pieces of crumbled bacon for extra flavor, and my fiance's pitt goes crazy for them! My bacon-crazed teenage brother was eyeing them, too!

Black Bean Hummus

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
Absolutely delicious! I served it with vegetable root chips, and it was a match made in heaven! My only slight modification: I've made it twice, once accidentally blending the paprika garnish in the dip, and it was fantastic. From now on, I will always blend the paprika right into the dip.

Cherry Chocolate Brownie Cheesecake

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2010
This is a yummy, decadent recipe. It's the perfect compromise when you can't decide between cherry pie, cheesecake, or brownies, and it pleases most sweet-tooths. I followed the recipe as is, except that I omitted the chocolate chips in the brownie crust, because it sounded a tad too rich. Ignore the reviewers who left out the cherry layer in between the cheesecake and brownie; that was the best part! A fairly simple, well-received dessert. Note: If your brownie crust didn't turn out right, it me be because you used a whole regular-sized brownie mix, which is 10.75 ounces more than what the recipe calls for.

Ruby-Red Strawberry Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
I also used orange juice (made from frozen concentrate) in this. I've chilled the sauce for a couple of hours and used it on cheesecake, and I've served it warm over vanilla ice cream. It was a huge hit in both cases. Great way to use up strawberries that are starting to go.

Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
If you were thinking about using a canned sauce in your enchiladas, don't. This is definitely worth the ten minutes. I used it for Beef Enchiladas I by umi_says from this site.

Cheryl's Spinach Cheesy Pasta Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
This is a great, quick pasta recipe. Everybody I've served it to likes it, from my picky, younger siblings (who rarely eat spinach but don't mind it in this), to my parents with their refined palettes. Also, you can change up the flavors to suit your taste by using your favorite combination of pasta sauces (mine is garden vegetable) and cheeses (mine is 5 cheese Italian blend).

Absolutely Sinful Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2005
Oh my goodness. These were addictive. I used mini semisweet chocolate chips instead of the bittersweet chocolate. I cut the baking soda and replaced the sour cream with fat free sour cream. And I used margarine instead of butter. The outcome was a delicious fluffy, yet rich, cookie.

Best Black Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2005
This the best black bean recipe. One adjusment: I added the juice of half a lime. My mother who never eats anything loved these.

Southern Living Magazine's King Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2005
Everybody loved this at my parent's Mardi Gras party. I made this with reduced fat sour cream and it still tasted rich. I bought icing and only iced one cake. Most people preferred the uniced cake.Absolutely delicious, won't wait for Mardi Gras to make it again!

Waffles I

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2005
These waffles were extremely good with a couple of modifications. I stirred a couple of handfuls of ground pecans into the batter. They are mainly for texture, so even if you're not a pecan fan you'll still want to use them. I also added some shaved bittersweet chocolate to last bit of the batter. It was delicious!

Scottish Gingerbread

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
I made this for my Scots-Irish dad, who is not a fan of super-sweet, super-rich desserts, and he enjoyed this gingerbread a lot. For my younger siblings, I put a dollop of Maple Cream Cheese frosting (from this website) on a few slices of gingerbread, and they loved it. I made this gingerbread with a thick, dark, home-brewed stout, which went really well with the recipe. My only modifications: I left out the orange peel and almonds, and doubled the raisins.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2005
The PERFECT oatmeal raisin cookie! I've tried different recipes, including the Quaker Oatmeal recipe, but this is by far the best! The trick to this cookie is to get the cookies out of the oven as soon as they're done. That way they will stay chewy even after they've cooled. If you wait too long to get them out they will be really crisp after they've cooled.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2005
This was delicious with just a few modifications. I reduced the sugar by about half, to keep the pumpkin flavor from being hidden by a load of sugar. I also replaced half of the white sugar with brown sugar. And I replaced half of the vegetable oil with applesauce. Delicious.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2003
I loved this recipe! I went with the excellent reviews and I'm very glad that I did. The dough did need a little bit more flour but that wasn't a problem. I've made pizzas before, but no other recipe was as good as this one. I'm going to be using this recipe again, and again, and again.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2003
I always use this recipe to make brownies. I've never even tried the frosting; these brownies are delicious all by themselves! Thanks for the great recipe, Angie!

Stuffed Shells III

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2003
This recipe was delicious! I halved the salt following the advice of previous reviewers. I didn't use an entire box of shells, instead I used about 17. I stuffed each shell with about 2-3 tablesoons. I will definitely be using this recipe again. Thanks Renee!

Aileen's Punch

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2003
This recipe was fantastic! I went by the reviews and they were absolutely true! I hadn't been serving the punch for fifteen minutes and someone asked me for the recipe! Also tastes good with white wine.
