Baked Stuffed Pumpkin

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2004
Delicious! I made this for thanksgiving but instead of a medium pumpkin I used cute lil mini pumpkins for individual servings. They were adorable and gobbled up as soon as they came out of the oven.

Dessert Crepes

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2003
Wonderful crepes! I had some at a restaurant once and decided to find a recipe online. My husband said these were even better than the ones I had at the restaurant.

Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
This buttercream frosting is awesome, with some of my own changes. As is the recipe works fine, but I prefer my buttercream frosting to actually use real butter, so that's what I did. I substituted real, salted butter for the shortening and omitted the extra call for salt, although the adding it wouldn't have hurt. I also used non-fat milk, but that was only because I didn't have any heavy cream in the fridge. The key to making this, or any frosting, is to first cream your butter and then add the confectioners sugar slowly. If you add it all it once, you'll end up with a big clumpy mess. Adding the sugar slowly allows time for everything to come together. Very smooth frosting and very tasty. This is my go-to buttercream frosting recipe from now on!!!!!

Chicken Afritada

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
My husband's favorite dish! It's too salty and greasy for me as written, but with a few minor alterations it turned out great. Instead of frying up chicken, I saute some cubed boneless,skinless chicken breasts in a skillet. Instead of 1 (10 oz.) can of tomato sauce, I use one of those larger 29oz cans. That's it. After those few changes, it's perfect for me and my hubby still loves it!

Frosted Cranberries

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
I've bitten into a plain cranberry before. Let's just say it was not pleasant. But these! These were amazing! The sweetness of the sugar helps balance out the bitterness and tart of the cranberry. I love it! I took the suggestion of some other people. I replaced the egg with a tablespoon light corn syrup. Also, instead of using regular granulated sugar I used ultrafine sugar (i.e castor sugar, berry sugar). If you don't have ultrafine sugar, pulsing regular granuated sugar in your food processor would work!

Jay's Jerk Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2003
A very good recipe although I thought it could use a bit more kick. I think next time I'll use a few habanero peppers instead of jalapenos. I love things hot and spicey.

Chicken Dilly

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2005
Very good, but I'll cut back on the amount of turmeric I use next time. Was a little overpowering for me.

Peking Duck

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
This skin didn't turn out as crispy as I would have liked, but the flavor was excellent. I'll probably need to work on rendering the fat better.
