Caramel Macchiato Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
I made this twice in 2 weeks. First time I followed the recipe exactly and I used instant espresso. It was so smooth and silky, my co-workers said it was the best cake I ever made. The next time I made the instant espresso stronger and I didn't use a water bath. I don't know if it was the quality of the coffee but I didn't like the stronger taste (and I LOVE coffee). Also the crust tasted burnt without the water bath. My guests & husband loved it though. I will stick with the original recipe for a 5 star cake.

No Tomato Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
This was great! I forgot to buy chili sauce so I used Hot Mexican Chili Powder and some crushed red pepper flakes. It was just the right amount of heat for me and no yucky tomatoes!

Grandma's Raspberry Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
These were simple to make. I used additional raspberry jam because it didn't seem like much when I spread it but then all the flavor was from the jam. They were good though.

Marinated Flank Steak

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2009
Wow. I never expected it to be so flavorful. I recommend cooking to medium rare. My husband cooked his half well and mine med-rare. We both liked mine 1000% more. The only change I made was using Hebrew National mustard instead of dijon.

Carrie's Garlic Pesto Tuna Salad Sandwiches

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2009
I really enjoyed this. I'm always trying to add things to tuna w/mayo for flavor and to reduce the amount of mayo but am rarely successful. This was so flavorful and I will make it again tonight.

Butterscotch Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2009
This was easy to make and came out very moist. It had a hint of butterscotch flavor. I used the individual (4oz) cups and could have added another one to add more flavor. The topping didn't caramelize for me but it was crunchy and tasty.

Garlic-Buttered Green Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
Easy to make and tasty. I would use less butter next time (or more beans).

Cajun Compromise Catfish

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
This was an easy to make and flavorful dish. I served it as a sandwich with tartar sauce and cajun mayo. I added more than a dash of hot sauce to the batter and it was just the right amount of spice for me.

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
This was my first attempt at 'real' risotto. I've tried the quickie versions from food network and the rice never cooked through. This was excellent! It was well worth the time of making it. I omitted the white wine but that was the only change. I could have easily cut back on mushrooms but I like them and thought the proportions were good. Will definitely make again..in cooler weather though!

Red Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
I followed the other reviewers' suggestions and added more bacon but it was still missing some flavor for me. Next time I may try adding more of everything except the potatoes.

Garlic Mashed Potatoes Secret Recipe

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
This was my first time ever making mashed potatoes. The potatoes only took 20 minutes to soften (4 servings). I think I put too much cheese by accident because that was the flavor I tasted the most. But overall it was excellent. I may try less cheese and/or more garlic next time.

Grilled Delmonico Steaks

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
This was a great marinade. I omitted the salt. My mother claimed it was spicy but my husband and I didn't get even a hint of spice. Definitely let it sit 24 hours.

Spinach and Orzo Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
This is the perfect summer salad. I omitted pine nuts b/c I didn't have them but other than that followed the recipe exactly...and have been eating it for the last three days!

Summer Feta Burger with Gourmet Cheese Spread

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
I had my doubts when I saw cream cheese as an ingredient but these were great! The pork really brought a lot of flavor and the cream cheese spread was a nice addition. I did omit the red wine but that was the only change.

Easy PHILLY OREO Cheesecake

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
This is a cheesecake lover's cake. It was very rich and dense. It was also super simple to make. I followed the recipe exactly. I would add more oreos to the batter if I made it again.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
I wish I tried the original recipe first but instead I did 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar and vanilla extract. I found the cookies too sweet and not very peanut buttery. I'm giving 4 stars b/c I think the original recipe would have satisfied me.

Jumbo Shrimp and Asparagus

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
I found this dish to be bland. I didn't have sherry but that was all I changed and I don't think 1 tsp would have made much of a difference. I might try it again and add some spices to it.

Banana Wheat Bread

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
This wasn't as sweet or as moist as other banana breads I've tried but it was still good. I topped each slice with honey and that made it great. I also added cinnamon and nutmeg per some other reviewer's suggestions. Update: I made this again using vanilla yogurt in place of the oil, 4 very ripe bananas and cinnamon honey. This time it came out very moist and much more flavorful. - it didn't need the honey topping. I also watched the cooking time very closely and stopped it at 45 minutes so that it wouldn't dry out.

Coconut Cream Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
This was the best (and easiest) coconut cake I have ever made. And I love coconut so I have tried a lot. I made a 2-layer cake....the 9x13 would probably have been easier when absorbing the coconut cream/milk mixture. The only change I made to the recipe was to add coconut extract to the whipped cream. The whipped topping really made the cake. Overall the cake was creamy and moist.
