Chocolate Pie II

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2012
This is my recipe but with a few changes. I use 3T cornstarch instead of flour and add the eggs with the rest of the mixture as it cooks and then add the vanilla and butter after it has thickened. The time is about right - I just go by how it looks and stir after every two minutes. I've done it in the microwave and stovetop and it's great either way. I usually use Dream Whip, Cool Whip or whipped cream.

Artichoke and Roasted Red Pepper Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2007
Made a few minor changes (just can't help myself!)...used green onions instead of leek and added a small garlic clove. I roasted my own red peppers and added about an ounce of cream cheese. Yum Yum! Rave reviews from the party I took it to. Thanks for the recipe :-)

Chicken Florentine Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2007
Good stuff! The changes I made were to cut the butter in half with olive oil, in which I sauteed the (pounded and seassoned) chicken breasts. I added a little more olive oil and then continued on. I served over spaghetti noodles because that's what I had on hand but it would be great on pasta or rice. The only change I will make next time is to half the canned spinach or maybe use frozen.

German Rouladen

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2007
Only changes made to the recipe were that I chopped all the filling ingredients and made in the crock pot. I've never made rouladen, so don't really have a reference point. The pickle was a weird taste though but that could've been the brand. Some in the family liked it, some not so much.

German Spaetzle Dumplings

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2007
Mixed in the food processor and scooped into a quart freezer bag, then cut three pencil-sized holes in the bottom seam of the bag and squeezed out in 3-4 inch segments. Scooped into a pan with olive oil and butter with sauteed shallot to fry a bit. My six year old had three helpings, my ten year old wouldn't touch it. I found it tasty and the hubby didn't care much for it. I guess it's a matter of taste - either you like spaetzle or you don't :-)

Italian Wedding Soup I

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2007
Really, really good! Used half the amount of rice pasta, based on other reviews and it was just enough. Used frozen kale in place of the escarole. Yum! Thanks for the recipe!

Quick Cassoulet

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2007
Halved the recipe for meat and beans but left the original amount of the other stuff. Added a tablespoon of creole seasoning too. Served over cous cous. The family loved it! Thanks for the recipe!

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2007
Good stuff! Substituted the cayenne for jarred chili pepper and left out the jalapeno, in efforts to bring the spice to a level my kids could eat. Without those, it was still very spicy but with more of a flavorful spice than a heated one. Next time I will half the salt too. Served over brown rice with a side of steamed broccoli. They all gave it a cheerful thumbs up. Thanks!

Garlic Prime Rib

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2006
Yum! My first attempt at prime rib, so thank you for a great recipe. I did a little three pounder, halved the ingredients and the time listed. It turned out perfectly. Thanks!

Million Dollar Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2006
FINALLY got this to work but through no fault of the recipe. I live at 5300 feet so had to make a few adjustments...as always. I first tried to just add a minute to the cook time and that was a failure; however, I should have used that as a fantastic truffle filling instead of throwing it away (shucks!). Anyhow, as we ate it off spoons, I could tell it would taste great if I could just get it to the right consistency. I threw out the timer and added a thermometer, brought it up to 230 degrees (that is the same as 240 for you low-landers...water boils at 202 here :-) and it is a hit! FYI, it took nearly twice the cook time. For those dealing with the same issue...I believe you have to adjust two degrees for every thousand feet above sea level. Thanks for the recipe, Beth!

Peanut Blossoms II

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2006
Awesome! Used butter instead of shortening. They spread too much on the first batch, so I baked in mini-muffin cups. I used peanut butter kisses instead of the plain chocolate - yum! I had a few more cookies than kisses and put a 1/2 teaspoon of strawberry jam in the center of those - yum! The latter a totally different dynamic but really good nonetheless! Thanks for the recipe!

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2006
Very, very good! The only substitution I made was lemon juice for the vinegar (was out) and added some milk per other reviews. I also made some with chopped walnuts sprinkled into the batter. Made a warmed sauce concoction with 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree, 1/2 cup applesauce and 1/4 cup pure maple syrup with a dash of cinnamon. Yum!

Stuffed Peppers My Way

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2006
I have to give this five stars, even though I tweaked it to suit my kids that aren't fond of the peppers. I used two small onions instead of the green and added garlic. Instead of the italian seasoning, I used fresh basil (about 8 leaves altogether). I then added some leftover roasted chicken. I roasted the peppers, skinned and sliced, then added to the mix with the tomatoes. I added a tablespoon of fresh chopped chives too. I served that part over the rice. The feta was a great touch. Those kids gobbled it up! So I guess this was really "Stuffed Peppers MY WAY." :-) But thanks for giving me a different angle on it all!

Peach Cream Pie I

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2006
Awesome! I upped the oven temp to 325 for my altitude (5300 ft.) and still had to bake an extra ten minutes. Added a sprinkling of cinnamon and nutmeg on top of peaches before covering with topping. Yum Yum!

Penne with Chicken and Pesto

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2006
Made as stated with the exception of using Low Fat Evaporated Milk in place of the cream and adding a tablespoon of chicken base. Good flavor and a nice change from the typical. Used the "Pesto Sauce" recipe from this site. Thanks for a yummy use of all that basil growing like weeds in my garden!

Pesto Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2006
YUUUMMMM! Made as recipe states, no changes or additions (a first, I think). Used in a recipe needing pesto from this site: Chicken Pesto Penne and also spread on baguette slices and topped with sliced fresh tomatoe and a dash of parmesan cheese. The latter is likely to be a party staple. Thanks for the recipe!

Spicy Pineapple Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2006
Awesome! Used with the "Spicy Polynesian Wraps" from this site and it was delish! I used 1/4 fresh pineapple and added 2T corn syrup. I put everything in the food processor and pureed it, poured it in the saucepan, brought to a light boil and let it simmer for about 5-7 minutes. Just the right texture!
