This was so easy! I love gooey desserts and this fit the bill. If you are looking for a quick crowd pleaser, this is it!

Grilled Scallops

Reviewed: May 13, 2002
This recipe was simply amazing and everyone loved it. It's simple enough to prepare, and tastes like you put a lot into it.I served with a loaf of french bread to soak up the leftover marinade. Instead of skewering the scallops and risking losing the smaller pieces, we put them in a double-sided grate with a handle on it. It makes it easier to turn them, and uses much less time than skewering.

Outback Onion Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2002
This soup was great - it tasted so close to the soup served at the restaurant. I was very pleased. One thing - it looked like I had waaay too many onions at first - and I was a bit worried about that - but when it was time to serve it, everything came out fine! I used Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese because I couldn't find the colby-jack blend. I served it in a breadbowl and it was sooo good. Next time, I may try using light cream or something a bit less sinful - just to cut down on the guilt!

Fancy Sammich

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2003
I made this for a Valentine's Dinner - and it was wonderful! I saved the marinade and drippings as suggested for gravy. I added a bit of a packet of pork gravy starter and some water - and it was great served over the pork. (It was too salty to be served over potatoes though). I will definitely make this again!

New England Crab Cakes

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2003
This was definitely a great starter recipe. I had never made crab cakes before - and didn't realize it was so easy. I added a bit of green onion to the recipe, as per a previous reviewer's comments, along with a tiny bit of finely chopped red bell pepper. I also had to add more mayonaise to hold the mixture together, as the first batch crumbled apart when cooking. Overall, it was a great recipe and I will definitely make again.

Cindy's Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2003
This was a great pie recipe which I will surely use again. I used real pumpkin (made a week or two earlier and then frozen) for the first time - and it was great! The recipe says that it will make two pies - so that's what I did, but it really was only enough for one pie. Both pies came out rather flat. Next time will only use one shell (or double recipe).

Mocha Ricotta Creme

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2004
Being on the SB diet for a week, I was craving SOMETHING sweet for dessert, so I finally tried this. After a bit of "doctoring" it was decent enough, considering what I had to work with. I wouldn't serve it to anyone who had another choice, but I'd make it again. I tried it as written (except for espresso powder, had none) and decided to add a small dab of natural peanut butter (no sugar) and some more splenda and cocoa. The chocolate chips added a lot to it. But if you're not on SB or another diet with similar restrictions - find another great recipe on this site.

Warm Crab Parmesan Dip

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2004
I listened to other reviewers and used half the mayo and two cans of crab. This is a great starter recipe. Everyone at the party seemed to like it, although I think it was lacking something. I will definitely make this again, but I will add something to it. Considering one or more of the following: horseradish, green onions and red peppers, lemon zest (have used in previous crab dip recipes), crushed red pepper or tobasco, or even just another type of cheese (in addition to the parmesan). Also, I used all "light" products instead of full fat - and had no problems.

Chicken with Cashews

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2004
Loving what I've had at restaurants, I was excited to try my hand at making at home. Although it was good - it didn't quite fit the bill. I felt that it was spicy for the sake of being spicy - not for the fullness of flavor. I'm not sure what it was lacking - but I even added a bit of soy sauce - and still it seemed to be missing something.

Bourbon Pecan Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2004
This is a keeper. Definitely impressive - and better yet - most of the ingredients are common pantry items! I didn't use as much butter as it called for in the sauce (only used about 2-3 Tbsp), I'm not sure my butter for the breading was properly clarified, and my frying butter was definitely not clarified. I don't think it's necessary. ALSO - I used thin chicken cutlets instead of regular boneless breasts - thus, less frying time and a bit more coating and sauce per bite! I definitely recommend.

Chili Rellenos Casserole

Reviewed: May 7, 2004
I thought this was a great, easy, HEALTHIER way to enjoy Chilis Rellenos. I used fresh mild chilies instead of canned. I sliced them into "rings" and this worked out great. I also mixed some salsa into the tomato sauce, but next time, I would either use all salsa or just try diced tomatoes.

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat

Reviewed: May 7, 2004
This made great pulled beef that was good in burritos and just to eat it on it's own! The onions were wonderful after soaking up the flavors all day. I used a hot sauce that had some lime in it, so maybe that was a flavor that some other reviewers were missing. Or perhaps some cilantro. I had nothing to change though! Great recipe!

Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: May 7, 2004
Good recipe to balance out other spicy foods you may serve with it. It was great baked over the cheese & onion enchiladas. Would make again!

Slow Cooker Kielbasa Stew

Reviewed: May 13, 2004
I took this to a church soup dinner and everyone seemed to like it - but it got no "RAVES". I thought it was very good very flavorful. I'll make again!

Asparagus Rolantina

Reviewed: May 26, 2004
Great recipe! My sister-in-law does a great variation as an appetizer. Rolls one or two cooked stalks in the proscuitto and cheese and a splash of mustard - and serves as is - no further baking!

Chocolate Strawberry Shortcakes

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2004
This is such a great twist on an original! I loved the biscuits, even by themselves. I used the suggested recipe of a previous reviewer who didn't have bisquick - and it came out great. Will definitely make again soon!

Sand Art Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2004
I love this recipe and have gotten rave reviews! I love the brown sugar flavor that is missing from other brownie mixes. My recommendation is to use DARK brown sugar - as it adds a much better flavor. Although I didn't really consider it until I read the comments of other reveiwers, it is a bit greasy - and I may try a bit less oil, but I love gooey brownies - plus the moisture extends the "shelf-life" - if they last that long!

Buttermilk Cornbread Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2004
I was very disappointed with this recipe. I grew up with cornbread made with Jiffy Mix - which I loved. But, I had never made cornbread from scratch before and thought I'd give it a shot. I thought that buttermilk and honey would make an interesting mix. There wasn't much taste, and although the texture seemed dry - there was an odd "oily" aftertaste to them. I think I'll find another recipe on this site or go back to the Jiffy Mix...
