Autumn Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2008
Absolutely delicious! I did not use a water bath and it was fine (I think it having a topping might make it unnecessary). Also, I used a 7.5" pan and it was still pretty thin so I would definitely try to use a small springform or double the filling.

Butternut Squash Bisque

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2008
As written, I give the recipe a 3. It needed more flavor so I added maple syrup, ginger, and apple which elevated it into 4 star.

Southwestern Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2008
These were very very good. The filling was very easy to make. I prepared exactly as directed, but I thought the filling needed a bit more pizazz so I added some lime juice and chopped cilantro. This really brightened the flavors. I used the flour tortillas as the recipe suggests, but I found rolling them a bit tricky and I think I would prefer a thinner wrap, so next time I will buy the square egg roll wrappers (in my opinion easier to work with than circular). I made my own dipping sauce with ranch dressing, sour cream, franks red hot, and a bit of chopped cilantro and scallions. Next time I am going to try guacamole :)

Irish Cream Creme Brulee

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2008
Excellent! This was very easy to make. I didn't have Irish Cream so instead I used Frangelico (hazelnut liquer). I have a kitchen blowtorch which worked perfectly so the custard stayed chilled.

Crusty Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
This was only my second time making bread which may have contributed to how they turned out. It was very easy to make, but I don't think they turned out much better than store bought bread. I will try making them again.

Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
This was delicious. I made the dressing exactly as the recipe indicated. It was phenomenal and it kept well in the fridge. I made 2 slight changes. I used blue cheese instead of swiss and used toasted walnuts instead of cashews. This was excellent

Blueberry Streusel Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
This was so good! I had to make 2 changes. 1. I had to bake it about 15 extra minutes 2. The recipe didnt call for enough topping so I had to make about 50% more than it called for. Very good thank you.

Bacon-Wrapped Scallops with Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
I made the sauce first and it was terrible! I thought it tasted like baby formula. However, I made the scallops and precooked the bacon in the oven as indicated and it was very good. The sauce was just awful though.

Creamy Dill Cucumber Toasties

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
Excellent! I made it exactly as the recipe says, except as other reviewers suggested I used fresh dill. I cut a french baguette on the bias and the presentation was very elegant.

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2006
This was really good and very easy. I dont like raisins so I left them out. The only reason it gets 4 instead of 5 stars is because it tasted kind of eggy. I did not temper the egg, and I had no problem with it scrambling, however I could just taste it in the pudding. If I make it again I will omit the egg or just add half of it. Also, I used 1 percent milk and it was still really creamy. Maybe it is better with half and half, but this was good enough that I dont think half in half or whole milk is really worth the extra calories. I also added a lot of cinnamon to this at the end.

Mulligatawny Soup I

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2006
Very good. Needed to add some extra spices to give it more flavor. I threw in about a tablespoon or two of chopped fresh cilantro and it was great! Also, this recipe was very easy to make.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew IV

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2006
As it appears, I give it 3 stars. I tasted it before I added the flour/water at the end and I found it really bland. I added in a few dashes of garlic powder, salt, paprika, and about 2 tablespoons of A1 sauce and it made it a 4 star. I would suggest adding more spices to it because it lacks flavor.
