Better Than Sex Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2002
Excellent cake! Not nearly as sweet as I was expecting by the ingredients listed. I did, however, cut back the candy bars from 4 to 3. Seemed like plenty to top it. Makes a lot so unless you want to be eating it for several days, it's better for a larger crowd.

Beth's Portobello Mushroom Burgers

Reviewed: May 5, 2003
These were excellent and so easy to make. A nice change of pace from regular burgers. Just watch out - the horseradish sauce is REALLY overwhelming. I would go lighter on that next time. It's hard to taste the other ingredients through that. Thanks for a great recipe, Elizabeth!

Coconut Shrimp I

Reviewed: May 14, 2003
You won't have to order another overpriced appetizer/entreé at a restaurant again. Although this recipe is a little time consuming, it is definitely well worth the effort. Thanks, Linda!

Slow Cooker Taco Soup

Reviewed: May 19, 2003
Delicious. If you can brown meat and open up cans, you can make this recipe. The only thing I changed was the kidney beans to black beans. Kept everything else the same and it was definitely more of a soup consistency than chili. Great with a small dollop of sour cream or without.

Parmesan Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2003
Served this on a cool summer evening and we all loved it, even my picky son. Wish I would have read reviews ahead of time because I agree with others that it could use a couple more potatoes and a cup or two less milk. Because there are so many salty ingredients in this recipe, I used no-salt butter to sauté the onions and low salt bacon and chicken broth. I then changed the celery salt to celery seed and the onion salt to onion powder. I also cut back on the sage because I am not a huge fan. We thought it tasted perfect. Served with salad and warm rolls, along with fruit and had a great supper. Thanks, Kristin!!

Baked Omelet

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2003
Since I cannot make an omelet to save my life, I have to rely on my husband to make them occasionally. This is good competition for the real thing. I used bacon instead of ham, because that is all I had on hand, and I added a chopped jalapeño with the seeds to give it some kick. After it baked, I added chopped tomatoes, sour cream, and a little salsa on top. We loved it! Great recipe, M.!

Greek Isles Pizza

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2003
Excellent! Because it seemed like an AWFUL LOT for one pizza, I cut the eggplant and kalamata olives to about 1/3 - 1/2 of what the recipe called for. It tasted perfect! I also cut the cheese down to about 1/2, just as a personal preference. Because we had lost our power, my young son suggested we grill the pizza. Have heard of it but never attempted it myself before. It turned out great. I cooked the pizza straight on the grill for about 3 or 4 mins. to brown up the bottom, then put aluminum foil underneath to cook the rest of the way. The pizza is a tad dry because of the lack of sauce, but still quite good. I will cook future pizzas like this again, and I will make this recipe again!

Chicken, Sausage and Zucchini Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2003
Excellent! I wouldn't change a thing! The only thing I did differently was to cook the sausage and chicken up separately, then cut it up. I then cooked the onion/green pepper mixture in a large pot in a small amount of oil. Once that was done, I added the cut up meat and the rest of the ingredients and simmered on low for approximately 30 - 40 mins. I then cooked the pasta and dished it up seperately then spooned the sauce mixture over top, instead of mixing it all together. Awesome recipe, Mary! Thanks!

Honey Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2003
Excellent! I used 8 boneless, skinless breasts cut in half length-wise. I sprayed a cookie sheet with oil and laid the pieces on there and sprinkled sesame seeds on top. Baked at 350º for 1 hr. The bottom on some appeared a little dark because of the honey carmelizing but they came out perfect. I served with more honey and honey mustard for dipping. Went over very well with the company I served it to. None was left.

Becky's Oatmeal Carmelitas

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2003
Delicious, although I did have some trouble lifting them out of the pan and the top was more crumbly than I was expecting. That may have been my fault, however, as I was distracted and may have added one extra cup of oats. The taste more than makes up for it, however. We'll never know for sure unless I make up another pan!

Chocolate Mint Cake Squares

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2003
I was given this almost exact recipe from my sister-in-law several years ago. About the only difference is I use a few drops of peppermint extract in place of the creme dé menthe. I also add a couple drops of either green or red food coloring. I don't let mine chill more than about 45 mins. or the top tends to crack easily when you are trying to cut it. Also, I divide the pan into about 4 sections, saving one to eat immediately, and the other 3 are cut up and put on paper plates then in plastic freezer bags. They freeze nicely and thaw quickly when you are looking for a quick dessert or have someone drop in unexpectedly. I try to keep a couple plates in the freezer at all times.

Tuscan Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2003
I wasn't sure I was going to like this soup when I was making it - boy, was I ever surprised! I used regular Italian links instead of spicy, since we don't really care for the other, and I cut them into small rounds instead of crumbling them. Delicious! Thanks, Dianne!

Potato Tacos

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2003
These were so good and so easy to make. I did, however, have trouble with the corn tortillas wanting to tear in half after I folded them, even though they were at room temperature. I would recommend heating the tortillas first in the microwave or making these quesadilla-style and then cutting them in 1/2. I used a lot less oil than called for and just flipped them over. Thanks, Yvonne!

St. Louis Toasted Ravioli

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2003
This recipe was AWESOME and so easy to make. I used 1/2 cheese ravioli and 1/2 meat ravioli and we can't decide which we liked better. I put the breadcrumbs in a bag and mixed the raviolis in there - made the job go much quicker. Thanks, Barb!

Alice Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2003
This was one of those rare recipes that I tried that the WHOLE family really liked. I have a picky 12 yr. old who rarely likes anything and even he complimented it! I used baby portobello mushrooms and found we only needed about 4 oz. of the cheese. Some used the dressing, others did not. It was fabulous - deserves more than 5 stars!

Amy's Cilantro Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2003
Yum! This was really good and very spicy. I served it over grilled chicken. I used a little more than 1/3 cup chopped cilantro and it was just a bit strong, but still quite good. Next time, I will cut it back to 1/3 cup or slightly less. To save on sodium, I used 1/2 tsp. of celery salt and 1/2 tsp. of celery seed. Also ate it with tortilla chips. This is thick like a dip, not really a sauce.

Grilled Gyro Burgers

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2003
These were awesome and the whole family loved them. I wouldn't change a thing. I was a little concerned because the meat mixture was very moist but the patties held together nicely and cooked up perfectly. I will make these, instead of the same old hamburgers, at our next cookout. Great recipe, Theresa! Thanks!

Pork Chops a la Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2003
I made this recipe exactly as stated and it was wonderful. We all loved it. I would say that if there is any complaint to be found, it is that it is a little bit salty, but not too bad. Recipes don't come much simpler than this one. Thanks, Jan!

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2003
Very good cheesecake but I had to tinker with it a little. I made it 3 different times. The first time, I made it with low-fat and no-fat cream cheese and got a HUGE split down the middle and it browned up a lot on top. I thought it might be the cream cheese so I made another one with regular cream cheese and had the exact same results. My husband couldn't tell a difference in the taste, but strangely, my daughter and I both liked the low-fat version better. The third time, I went back to the no-fat and low-fat cr. cheese and I used a water bath (covered the bottom of the springform pan with foil, placed in a pan and filled with boiling water 12 way up the sides of springform pan). This time I baked it at 325 for 1 hr. and 20 mins. Removed from oven but left in the water bath for another 10 mins. Then cooled completely before refrigerating. It came out PERFECTLY. No browning and no split. Finally, a success!!!

Carrot Souffle

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2003
I absolutely HATE cooked carrots but I LOVED this recipe. It's very sweet but the flavor grew on me. However, next time, I think I'll take other's advice and cut back a little bit on the sugar. I made a half recipe and my husband and I alone nearly cleaned up the whole dish!
