Stroganoff Sandwich

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2003
Extremely delicious. My husband loved them and so did I. Instead of ground beef, I used the "heat and eat" Hormel Beef Tips and Gravy and threw it in the pan where I added the sour cream in and other seasonings. I used lots of white onion instead of green and omitted the green peppers. Used cheddar and monteray jack cheeses. The tomato is what makes this sandwich come to life. AWESOME ADDITION TO MY COLLECTION. THANKS!!!!!

Easy Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2009
It is SCARY how fast and easy this is. Mine was 2 items: spice cake mix and one can of pumpkin pie FILLING, then into the muffin pan. Furthermore, they come out great!?!?! A baking miracle...no doubt. Can't wait to experiment with more combinations!

Microwave Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2008
Wow, who knew a microwave cake would actually come out!?!?! I used spice cake and apple pie filling and added 1/2 cup brown sugar and a cup of pecans to the mixture. Holy moly, it was so moist and delicious! I know there are several varieties of pie fillings...I can't wait to try more combinations! YAY! So happy to have stumbled across this little gem! :o)

Easy Pesto

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
Excellent Pesto! I added several hunks of parmesan and that made it even better. Added an extra clove of garlic. I also threw more (untoasted) almonds into the processor. 1/4 cup wasn't quite enough for me. Cooked some whole wheat rotini while the almonds toasted, then blended everything and immediately enjoyed fresh pesto over my noodles. Fantastico! Will definitely be making again now that I know how easy it is! :o)

Shirley's Maine Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2008
I "doctored" and "cheated" a bit as every cook does: used 3 cans diced potatoes, 2 cans sliced carrots, sauteed the chopped onions and celery with a heaping tablespoon minced garlic in the bacon fat, and used a combination of half and half and heavy cream. Didn't have any clam juice but used 4 cans chopped clams, juice and all. Added a good bit of black pepper to stand up to the cream base and a touch more garlic salt for proper seasoning. Threw it all in the crockpot 8 hours on low...PERFECT-O. Before serving, I dissolved about 5 tablespoons cornstarch in cold water and mixed in to thicken it up to an appropriate "chowder" consistency. So delicious!!! A winter-time favorite!

White Chocolate Amaretto Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2008
Holy Moly people. If an "almondy, amaretto-ish" cake is what you're in the mood for, it doesn't get any tastier or easier than this one! I only had sugar free white chocolate pudding, but you couldn't even tell once the batter was mixed up. Other than that, my only change was I added a 1/2 tsp nutmeg. I just knew that would go beautifully up against the warm, nutty amaretto flavor. What a winner! I didn't have any frosting so I whipped up a batch of cream cheese frosting and added some amaretto to it also. Oh my gosh...YUM. This one is a keeper.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2013
Super meatloaf! I got a little overzealous putting ingredients into the bowl and before I knew it, I'd mixed the brown sugar, ketchup glaze into the whole she-bang. Oops. Oh well. It still came out beyond delicious. I stuffed it into green bell peppers and baked for an hour. I did reduce brown sugar to 1/4 cup and milk to 1/2 cup per other reviews. Will definitely be making this again. As a side dish, I made the sweet potato and onion recipe from this site. Fantastic all the way around!

Cashew Crusted Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2007
FANTASTICO!!! When I first stirred up the apricot/mustard/curry sauce and tasted it, I was apprehensive, but after everything was cooked, the flavor "softened" a bit and was one of the most perfect sweet & sour tastes I'd ever had. My husband loved the flavor and the cashews were such BONUS flavor, texture and crunch! My only change was I used boneless, skinless thighs, which ALWAYS cook up more tender and juicy since they are dark meat. This chicken is delightful and oh-so-simple...its officially in our dinner rotation now!

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
Made this for Thanksgiving as an alternative to Pumpkin Pie (since it had all the same wonderful "fall" spices). I followed the recipe exactly and everything came out perfect-O. I took out a couple spoonfuls of frosting and colored one orange and one green and piped out a big carrot & leaf on top.

Roasted Sweet Potatoes & Onions

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2013
I made this as a side dish to go along with the "Brown Sugar Meatloaf" recipe on this site. WOW WOW WOW! I love sweet potatoes cooked ANY way, but my husband isn't as big a fan. You know you've done well when hub eats two helpings of both. We are nut lovers, so the toasted almonds were GLORIOUS and the perfect compliment to the softly roasted potatoes and onions. We discussed how important it is to use a SWEET onion alongside sweet potato. I cannot imagine using a regular, strong onion. It just wouldn't work flavor-wise. Otherwise, I followed this recipe to the letter, and it was divine. He told me to "put this in the rotation."

Key Lime Pie IV

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2003
EXQUISITE! My husband is peculiar about his key lime pie and this one got a thumbs up from him. It's ridiculously simple and tastes divine. I wasn't even a fan of key lime pie till I tasted this version. Fabulous recipe...THANKS. (I used a shortbread crust...tasted perfect.)

Melt in your Mouth Cookies II

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2004
These cookies are deee-lish! I followed the recipe exactly and they came out perfect. Classic Chocolate Chip. I find using a fork THROUGHOUT the blending steps really helps. Tip for anyone making cookies: ALWAYS UNDERBAKE COOKIES! Practically everyone prefers a soft, tender cookie over a hard one. Even if you pull them out and they look really soft in the middle, its okay. As long as the edges are "set" they'll be perfect once cooled.

Stuffed Shells I

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2004
These were delicious but my husband wanted to know where the meat was. (You've never met such a carnivore. haha!) Next time I'll probably add some browned ground beef to the mixture. Also...am I crazy, why did they come out of the oven so runny? (I made certain not to overcook the pasta shells, so I don't think it was from that.) The next day everything had set up, and tastes much better. Would adding an extra egg help everything set up better?

Chicken Pot Pies with Puff Pastry

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
I only used half a stick of butter, and omitted the cheese. I enjoyed the puff pastry but my husband says he prefers plain pie dough on top. This was okay, no wow factor, but a nice everyday simple flavor. I kicked up all seasonings, with a good 10 shakes of hot sauce and it still seemed bland. Needs more garlic, onion, maybe a touch of white wine?

Classic Crab and Shrimp Salad

Reviewed: May 27, 2014
Excellent recipe EXCEPT for the onion. I love onion and using only half of a Vidalia was still heavy on flavor. I eased off on the green bell pepper too, probably using only half. We had plenty of shrimp in the freezer, but no crab, so I used Orange Roughy instead. (If you're unfamiliar with this fish, it has a similar texture and flavor to crab/lobster.) Once all the mayo, onion, pepper, celery and seasonings were mixed in, it blended in beautifully. I added some Old Bay too. Good stuff for a cool, summertime lunch! Will definitely make again.

Bake Sale Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2008
I can't give it 5 stars with all the adjustments, but YES...PLEASE FOLLOW THE ADVICE OF "GOURMETMOMMY" and "beebeebaker." After doubling crust and filling, the layers come out beautiful! Now its a five star. I also added a splash of vanilla extract and the zest of one lemon. Yum-O!

Light and Fluffy Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
I added a prepared box of vanilla pudding to help make it more "light and fluffy" per another review warning of it sticking to the roof of one's mouth. I also put it into an oreo crust, instead of graham cracker and that was a fun change. I mixed it longer than normal to whip air into it. It's good chilled or frozen. I do think PB pies are better with whipped topping mixed in, but I had none and was craving this cold, creamy PB flavor.

Coconut Pecan Frosting I

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2013
Came out great. BUT, if you are heavy-handed in your frosting application or you plan on frosting the sides too, consider making a double batch. I barely had enough to frost only the tops of my two 8" rounds, leaving the sides exposed.

Warm Crab Parmesan Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2003
The mixture overall is fine. However, the mayo's got to go. Or at least be significantly reduced. I think next time I'll use only a 4th of a cup. 1 cup is entirely too much. (And I'm a mayo lover.) Also, my husband and I couldn't even taste the crab. Next time I'm going to use 2 cans of crab.
