Coconut Custard Pie I

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2002
This pie is rich and wonderful, just like the ones my grandma used to make. When she died, all her great recipes went with her. My dad goes crazy for this pie! It's like having a part of her back. Thanks, Lesley! EDIT - 6 years later and we're still loving it, but I always use a 10-inch crust so to ensure that the pie will set.

Makeover Morning Glory Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2008
We enjoyed these. Just FYI, for others who are not familiar, the batter is really thick and has more fruit/carrots/nuts than muffin...which is fine, I just didn't anticipate it and was afraid I did something wrong when I got ready to bake. Maybe I did, but they were still good! I also only had 12 muffin cups, so I baked the rest of the batter in the bottom of my loaf pan for about 10 extra minutes and cut it into bars.

Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2007
I love this because I'm lazy and it's easy. I serve it almost every time I entertain because people love it. I usually offer flavored dippers like Cracked Black Pepper Triscuits or garlic pita chips for those who want more flavor.

Nitey Night Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2007
My mom made these when I was a kid and we loved them. They're great for parties/showers because you can customize the color with food coloring. The melt in your mouth texture is awesome. It is critical to turn off the oven when you put the cookies in or they will brown, when they should be white.

Chicken Salsa Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2008
I've made this before (from another recipe) with two additions that make it awesome - a can of drained corn and sliced black olives. The sweetness of the corn is a nice contrast to the salsa.

Pumpkin Cheesecake II

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
This was delicious! I wanted to do a gingersnap crust, but the weird store near my house didn't have any and I was in a hurry, so I used cinnamon graham crackers for the crumbs and mixed with ground ginger. I also skipped the mace because I didn't have it and added nutmeg and doubled the cinnamon. I could not stop eating this and DH and sister loved it, too. A definite keeper! EDIT: I tried this again and still cannot keep it from cracking (tried water bath, cooling it in the oven, cooking on a lower temp), BUT I found the nut topping below on another site and now my cheescake is gorgeous! Nut Topping: 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar 1/4 cup butter 1/4 cup whipping cream 1 cup chopped toasted pecans In a small heavy saucepan over low heat, combine brown sugar and butter; stir until sugar dissolves. Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a boil; remove from heat and mix in whipping cream and pecans. Pour hot topping over baked cheesecake.

Mango Custard Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2002
I'm surprised at the negative review. I loved this. It is certainly different from the typical mango dishes, but was very tasty. I used mango from a jar and lime juice from a bottle, but it was still good!

Macaroni and Cheese for Two

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
This was my first time doing Thanksgiving, and I needed a recipe like Mom used to make (before she got sick) because mac and cheese casserole is required at every celebration in my extended family. This was hit - what a relief! I tripled it and cooked it in a 9 x 11 pan. Next time, I may add a little more milk and egg for added fluff, and do a smaller pan or larger recipe because it wasn't as deep as we prefer it.

Lime Kissed Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2002
I took a lot of shortcuts on this and it still tasted wonderful. I halved the recipe, used bottled juice instead of fresh, and drizzled some lime juice over a store bought graham cracker crust before filling. I took it to work and we devoured it. One woman said it was the best cheesecake she had ever tasted. Thanks! - EDIT - 4 years later, I still love this. I have now made it per the recipe, and it comes out a lot more tart with fresh squeezed juice, but it's still delicious to me. I did get a big crack in the middle when I made the full-sized one, so I covered it with garnish

Easy Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2002
I wasn't too successful with this one. My rice never cooked completely, even after adding more liquid and time. I would prepare the rice and add it near the end if I made this again.

Classic Spanish Sangria

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2002
YUM! I made this for a "girls gathering" and it was a big hit. A little goes a long way...

African Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2002
Yum! I made this last night. The flavor is wonderful and spicy, but I think it needs a little more liquid. EDIT - 5 years later, this is still one of my favorites. I use cooked chicken to save time, which definitely requires additional liquid. I also double the potatoes to eat without rice. When I am low-carbing it, I skip the potato and rice and double or triple the chickpeas. It's alway delicious!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie III

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2002
This did not taste good to me. It needs some sugar or condensed milk and a little less cream cheese. It had a salty flavor. I will not make it again.

Sour Cream Chicken Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2002
I love this recipe. I skipped the nutmeg because I don't have any, but it is still delicious. I made it for my parents while I was visiting, and they made me make it again the next day! Thanks!

Whole Wheat Pumpkin-Applesauce Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
These were good, but they did taste "healthy". I used apple butter for the oil, brown sugar only, an added Craisins. I also added 1/4 flax meal because I need to use it up. The batter was thicker than I expected, but maybe that was my flax. I should have taken a little more care in shaping the tops after dropping them into the muffin tin, because they cooked in the original shape. I ended up with 12 regular muffins, plus 9 mini-muffins to finish the batch.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2004
I love this...but I am too lazy to keep making the chips. I now serve the fruit salsa with cinnamon pita chips (Stacy's brand in my area). Just as tasty and much faster!

Potato Casserole I

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2002
This was only okay to me. I was expecting a stronger flavor, but it was more subtle than I preferred.

Summer Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
We love this! I marinated my zucchini in olive oil, minced garlic, and lemon, then sauteed it to reduce the liquid during baking. I have also grilled strips of zucchini on my Foreman grill the same way.

Crunchy Turkey Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
Per earlier reviews, I halved the lemon juice and apple (used golden delicious), and added about 1/4 cup crushed pineapple and more turkey. We like sweet and savory (as opposed to sour or tart) and it was perfect in a pita pocket. I think the doubling of the sauce is strictly a personal preference. We like only enough sauce to hold the other ingredients together, so I did not double and felt was juicier than I would prefer.
