Authentic Mexican Tortillas

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2002
Please don't waste your time making these "tortillas". I've made tortillas many times before and these were yucky. I threw the whole thing away.

Bahama Mama

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2005
I did not like this drink. By the other reviews it sounded like a very flavorful tropical drink. It did not have much flavor at all.

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2006
These are the best scones I have ever eaten! I'm a top notch baker but even thought this recipe is easy, it doesn't skip on the flavor. The first time I made these, I did dried crannberry with orange zest. The second time, I did fresh blueberries with walnuts. I liked the cranberry recipe best. Bust my husband and daughter liked the blueberry. I made a frosting for the left overs. It had confectioners sugar, almond extract and orange juice. I dunked the scones in when they were completely cooled. And they were excellent with coffee the next day.

Tortilla Soup II

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2006
This is really good! Instead of flour tortillas, I used corn tortillas. I made the soup following the recipe. And then I had diced avacado, fried strips of corn tortillas, chopped cilantro, shredded cheese and sour cream in bowls so everyone could customize their soup bowl. Double or triple the recipe, it's delicious.

Banana Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2008
I took these to work and everybody loved themI added 2 t. of vanilla extract, 2 t. of cinnamon instead of one, 1/2 c of walnuts and omited the raisins. It was funny though, some of us tasted more pumkin and others tasted more banana. Either way, they were great. I did muffins.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
I made this today. I was short 1 banana and only had 1 cup of sour cream but it was still great. I added an extra teaspoon of cinnamon and 1 teaspoon of allspice. My hubby and daughter loved it. My daughter said it was the best banana bread I ever made. This one is a keeper.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
