Lemon Pie Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2013
Good tart lemon bars. The crust tastes like shortcake, which I love. Make sure they are completely cooled before you sprinkle the confectioners sugar. The recipe does not make 32, though. These are a big hit at home and with the neighbors. They are pretty close to the ones Starbucks use to sell a good while back.

Seafood Fettuccine

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2013
Instead of 2 cups of half and half, I used 1 1/2 cups of heavy cream and 1/2 cup of butter. Instead of 1 cup of onions, I use 1/4 cup of shallots. I used snow crab instead of scallops, this time around, but either work well. At the end I add the zest of 1 lemon and the juice as well. If you let the warm pasta sit in the sauce (without the seafood) for about 10 minutes, the pasta will soak it up and make it creamy.

Migas II

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2013
I add fresh jalapenos, tomatoes and onion. I'm not a tomato fan, so I leave them out. You should saute' one jalapeno and 1/4 cup onions before adding in the eggs. (I remove seeds and inner membrane of the jalapeno for less heat.) I add a pat of butter once everything is combined. Great on a warm flour tortilla with fresh avocado or serve burrito style.

Cream of Mushroom Soup I

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2013
I wanted to try this after having the one at La Madeleine. It was very good, but too thick. I added more half and half and butter. I'm sure I could have done that with stock, I will try that next time. The soup is great with crusty bread. I used baby bella and button mushrooms so I could get more depth to the flavor. I am a big meat eater, but found this soup very satisfying. I will make this again.

Cake Style Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2013
I've been making this for about a decade and everyone loves it. You may substitute almond extract for the vanilla and add in toasted walnuts for a nice crunch.

Homemade Dog Food

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2012
I make something similar to this, however, I use chicken livers instead. I boil the livers and chop them finely and use a rice steamer for the rice. Once the rice is done, I add in the frozen peas and carrots and let them warm through. I mix the liver, rice, veggies and broth together. Once cooled I put them in freezer bags and freeze until I need it for the pups. So easy.

Grilled Bacon Jalapeno Wraps

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2012
I've been doing these for many years. I add 1/4 - 1/2 cup crab, 3/4 t old bay, 1/2 t lemon pepper and 1/2 t pepper. Mix well, but leave some of the crab in chunks. Grill or place in the oven at 400 for 20-30 minutes, keep an eye on them. Enjoy!

Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2011
Really good. I followed the basic recipe. But I added cinnamon to one portion of the popcorn. I spinkled it on top before putting it in the oven. I also think it would be great if you do the same with some kosher salt, I will try that next time for sweet and salty popcorn.

To Die For Fettuccine Alfredo

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2011
This recipe was super easy and good. I melted the butter first and put in two crushed garlic cloves for 10 minutes, removed the garlic, it gave the sauce a mild garlic flavor. (I love garlic.) The sauce is a bit thin. Another member suggested using cornstarch. I didn't because it was my first time trying this recipe, but I will next time. I just let the hot noodles sit in the pasta for 5 minutes so it could soak up the sauce. I tossed again right before serving with spaghetti with meat sauce and chunky garlic bread. For the garlic bread spread, I used 1/2 stick of softened butter, 3 finely minced up garlic and 1/2 t. fresh thyme. I spread that on store bought garlic bread split lengthwise and baked at 350 for about 12 minutes. It was nice eating two different kinds of pastas in one meal. I did the red sauce the day before, it tastes better the next day anyway.

Giant Crisp Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2011
Since this was the first time I used this recipe, I followed it as stated, except I didn't have walnuts so I used pecans. I am so happy I found a crisp cookie recipe. They have a wonderful butter flavor. These are perfect if you are a dunker. We dunked them in milk, but I'm sure they would be great with a latte as well.

Death by Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2011
I just did this without the crust and not as much cream. This recipe is great because if you use the food processor, it only takes a few minutes to prepare. Very rich, so not much is needed to get rid of your sweet tooth. I split this into 6 servings and topped with a little bit of whipped cream.

Chicken Lo Mein

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2011
This is a great recipe, although I pull out the extra sauce as there is a lot of it. I use chicken breast, but I'm sure it would be great with shrimp and scallops as well.

Pumpkin Gingerbread

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
This is the best pumpkin bread I have every baked (so far.) I added an extra teaspoon of cinnamon and added in 2 t. of vanilla to the measuring cup before I added the rest of the water to measure 2/3 cup. I also added dark chocolate chips to one half of batch, that way had one loaf with chocolate and one without. I served this with homemade honey butter spread and coffee. I will take this to Thanksgiving dinner along with another couple of desserts.

Busy Day Barbeque Brisket

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2010
This is a really smart idea for brisket. Since I was in a rush Friday morning, I just went the lazy route. I used a large crock pot, added the brisket. along with 1 1/2 cups of beef broth, 4 garlic cloves, 1 T. worcestershire, 2 t. kitchen bouquet, salt and pepper. This cooked for 11 hours on low and was super delicious. Again, great idea for a brisket.

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2010
This is good, but I changed a couple of things. I made extra bacon, used heavy whipping cream instead of half and half and pureed the soup once it was done. Really good in a bread bowl or with crusty bread and a ceasar salad.

Creamy Baked Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
I have been making this for years. I do not add the sour cream and cherries though. For the holidays, I make white chocolate rose leaves; just melt white chocolate and spread onto clean real rose leaves, place in the refrigerator for 10- 15 minutes and peal leaves off, place on top of cheesecake. I also make miniature cheesecakes via the miniature cheesecake pan. The small ones are great for parties.

Happy Birthday Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
This cake is really good. I use the "Wedding Cake Frosting" recipe for this cake. Sometimes I use almond extract instead of the vanilla.

Sausage con Queso Dip

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
This is a great recipe for parties. I use the hot sausage and you can add tabasco or a can of green chilis for an extra kick. Make sure you have plenty of corn chips!

Honey Walnut Shrimp

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2009
WOW, this is good! This is really good with fried or white rice. I would double the sauce and would toast the walnuts in the oven instead of putting them in the sugar water. I will make this again.
