Mini Cheesecakes I

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2005
I made these for a party - they were very good. I couldn't find mini muffins liners, so I sprayed the tins with canola oil and ran a knife around the outside to loosen them after they cooled. I think they would keep better with the liners. These made 46 mini cheesecakes for me.

Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2004
I made this last night and it was wonderful! I used the Best Ever Pie Crust recipe (use a little more than half for one deep-dish crust), made real whipping cream for the top after it cooled, followed by toasted coconut which made it look professional. I cooked the pudding on a double boiler and got impatient for it to boil, so I put it in the microwave for a minute until it did. The filling was the perfect consistency - not runny, not too firm, just creamy. I have never made a coconut cream pie before and this recipe would be hard to beat.

Spinach and Goat Cheese Salad with Beetroot Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2005
This is a wonderful salad. I'd never eaten beets until I made a similar beet dressing in a cooking class. It's surprisingly good. This is a perfect recipe for a dinner party - simple to prepare but it tastes like something you'd be served at a nice restaurant. I'd double the goat cheese - it's so good!

Black Bottom Cupcakes I

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2005
This recipe is a favorite I've had for years and is a permanent part of my collection - my sister and I make them at least once a year. We use regular sized chocolate chips. The filling is the best part and I wouldn't reduce the amount as a prior review suggested. I bake 20-25 min. and have a note on my recipe that they are better undercooked than overcooked. We like them both right out of the oven while the chips are still gooey and the next day when the chips have hardened. It only makes 18 for me. This recipe is exactly the same as "Grandma Gudgel's Black Bottom Cupcakes" and "Black Bottom Cupcakes II".

Deep Dish Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2005
Like everyone else says, this is a keeper! At 47% calories from fat, it had better be. You can't eat just one. I baked mine for 40 minutes and they were still moist all of the way to the edges. At 30 minutes, still jiggly in the middle. If you don't use a 8-inch square, it's possible you don't need to bake them that long.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2005
Excellent. This is the second year I've made these with fresh blueberries. I made half the topping this time for the 12 muffins, which I liked better. This would probably make between 8 and 16 muffins depending on how full you like them. I ate three right out of the oven!

Kerri's Holiday Punch

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2005
We made this for a party last weekend along with a sangria recipe from this site. Kerri's punch was the winner.

Almond Maple Granola

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2005
My only criticism is I couldn't get it to clump at all. Perhaps because I used apple butter instead of oil. I added some dark corn syrup but that didn't help much. Next time I will bake in a thin layer - I only had a cake pan, but it was too thick and took longer to bake. Great recipe.

Easy White Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2005
I recommend using 2 cans of white corn and 2 cans of beans. I will also reduce the amount of chicken next time. Very tasty, everyone loved it.

Toffee Chunk Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2006
My husband said it was the best cheesecake I've made. I used half the choc/caramel on the crust and half on the top like others have suggested and used half light cream cheese and half regular. I had to cook it longer (until it didn't jiggle in the middle). The texture of the cheesecake was great - creamy, not dense, but not too soft. I may be trying topping variations because the cheesecake turned out so well.

Molten Chocolate Cakes With Sugar-Coated Raspberries

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2007
Oh yeah, this is good and very easy! I thought it didn't sound like enough flour, but it was. I made a half recipe which made 3 small Ramekins, similar to another reviewer who made 6 with a full recipe. Great with a side of Vanilla Bean ice cream and strawberries! I will definitely make this again for guests (and for me).

Peanut Blossoms II

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2007
I made these for Christmas baskets this year. They were a hit. A really good cookie that stays pretty soft. I ate plenty of them myself.

Kabob Marinade

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2004
Very good - made with chicken and shrimp. We cooked in a pan on the grill and found that leaving some marinade with it during the first part of cooking helped keep the flavor. The whole family liked it - made it twice this week.

Orzo with Mushrooms and Walnuts

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2007
I forgot to add the walnuts. This was still really good. It would make a nice side for a dinner party. I thought it would be too salty with the chicken broth, but it wasn't. I think the walnuts would be good and make it even more gourmet, had I remembered them.

Quick and Easy Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2008
When I read "cakelike" brownies, I thought I wouldn't like them. But, oh yes, they are so good! They are less dense, but still rich. I made a half recipe in a 9 X 9, used pecans instead of walnuts - and stuck some peanut butter chips and butterscotch chips in one side. Tried some powdered frosting on some, too. I was surprised at how moist they stayed overnight, too. I'm made them earlier this week and I'm making another 1/2 batch again tonight. These take about 10 minutes to throw together - put the butter in the microwave on defrost for a couple minutes while you gather the rest of the ingredients. I will never buy another box again - they have trans fats (partially hydrogenated oils and/or shortening) in them. These are still fattening, but not as bad as box mixes. YUM!!

Cheeseburger Pepper Cups

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2008
I made these yesterday and they turned out very good. I used yellow and red peppers. The flavor was just right. I've switched to using brown rice vs. white since it's so much better for you - you can't really tell a difference in this dish. I will make these again.

Philly Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
I was looking for a lighter, fluffier cheesecake, similar to the one they serve at Capitol Grille. This was it! Because of the cream and egg whites, it is not as dense as traditional cheesecake, yet creamy and delicious. The recipe photo that shows layers, is because the egg whites were not mixed into the batter enough. Mix them in gently but thoroughly as instructed and you will not get layers. I will make this again with one change - I will mix the graham crackers and butter and press it to the sides of the pan beforehand like most cheesecake recipes, rather than pouring the butter in and rolling the crumbs around. This did not provide a thick enough crust, although it did not stick to the pan. Overnight in the refrigerator is adequate for cooling. Also, I used a 9" springform pan, which worked perfectly. I fear a 8" would be too small to hold the batter. I wrapped the bottom of the pan in tinfoil to prevent water from entering the pan and baked in a 1" waterbath. I almost baked without a waterbath since it seems like too much work, but it really turned out perfect baking at 300 for 90 minutes exactly.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
This was a *favorite* at our New Year's Party. I cooked 2 chicken breasts, used 1/3 less fat cream cheese and Hidden Valley Ranch dressing made with light mayo. I used the chicken flavored crackers, but I would also get tortilla chips to go with this. This was not too hot, I would not recommend cutting back on the hot sauce. You couldn't tell the cream cheese was light either. I will definitely make this again.

Onion Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2009
I made these as fries with olive oil - one batch at 350 another at 400. My guests loved them! The ones at 400 turned out better. I had to micro the potatoes for a minute so I could push them through the slicer. Baked them around 30 minutes. A packet of seasoning to 3 potatoes is about right. I would recommend flipping them every 10 minutes to keep them from sticking. I thought they were yummy with ranch dressing!
