Irresistible Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
I'm not a pecan pie lover like some, but I like good pecan pie around the holiday season. This is a real pecan pie. Not Jelly Goop with Pecan Topping pie, like every other pecan pie I've had. I did do my pecans a little different - I chopped all pecans in my food processor save the halves I laid on the top. I do think this would be amazing with a shortbread crust and will try that for our Christmas.

Pumpkin Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
I used 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice instead of the 2 pinches ground cinnamon. This was perfect! This is less sweet than sweet potato casserole, which is great when you want something that's more like a light side than a heavy dessert.

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
This is fantastic! I had to make the last cup of milk heavy cream (only had 1/2 c milk)and I added 3 dashes (maybe ~ 1/8 to 1/4 tsp) nutmeg. This is the very best rice pudding I've ever had. If I change anything else, I might cut down down on the sugar by a tablespoon or two- the golden raisins make would make up the sweet 'difference'.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2009
You HAVE to try this recipe: There's a reason it has 1500+ high ratings. If I could give this 10 stars, I would, it's THAT good! Like others, I did change it up a little... I tossed the diced (gala) apples in a few tablespoons lime juice to prevent browning; I added no sugar whatsoever; I also added blueberries. With the chips, I found the cheaper flour tortillas, the thicker kind that are on the shelf, were better than the more expensive refrigerated kind. That's just my opinion. Also, I sprayed the chips (after cutting the rounds into quarters with a pizza cutter), cinnamon-sugared them, resprayed, then second coated with cinnamon sugar. They were awesome by themselves. I 1 1/2 times'd this recipe and it made 1/2 gallon of salsa... which was the only food at the party that was gone before it was over.

Best Lemonade Ever

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2012
I just recently dug out my Black & Decker Electric Citrus Juicer, so I'm making every lemon and limeade recipe I can find... I made this, subbing 1/2 C Splenda and 1 C Erythritol for the sugar (hate hate hate the taste and after-taste of anything with straight Splenda). Fan-freakin'-tabulous!!! And with the electric juicer it only took 6 lemons and about 6 minutes for all that juice.

Cocktail Wieners II

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2005
The first time I had these, it was without knowing what was in the 'sauce'. If I had known the ingredients first, I would have been put off (it truly sounds gross) and not even tried them. Glad I didn't know! They are fantastic for parties, etc. (Super Bowl party... they were gone first.)

Yellow Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
I didn't have fresh squash or onion but did have canned squash with vidalia onion, so I completely drained and used three of those; I also was out of crackers so I used 2 cups of boxed chicken flavored stuffing mix (and left out the salt). This was the best squash casserole I've ever made and I didn't even have all the right ingredients!

Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2011
for those of you adding baking soda, etc. - those recipes are also on allrecipes, so you're kind of rating the wrong recipe. For a THREE INGREDIENT PEANUT BUTTER COOKIE this recipe is perfect. If you want more than 3 ingredients, go to another recipe for peanut butter cookies.

Cream Cheese Pound Cake III

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2014
I don't know why - habit, I suppose - but I always mix my cakes up with a hand mixer...even though I FINALLY got the stand mixer of my dreams. Like I said, it must be habit. Well, my hand mixer died and I was in the mood to make this cake. Like nearly everyone else, I used Swan's Down Cake Flour instead of All Purpose (just too lazy to sift, resift, reresift, etc.) and my stand mixer. What a difference the stand mixer made in my pound cakes. I've always had delicious 5 Pound Cakes (they're THAT heavy, dense). This came out like a Cloud Cake (that beautifully light, airy) and I honestly believe the improvement in the texture made it taste even better. So, the recipe gets 5 stars because, well, YUMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!! but as a footnote I will say, if you have to save $1 a week for 4 years, it's worth it a thousand times over to have a good stand mixer when making this or any other cake.

Molasses Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2011
I'd never eaten molasses cookies before, let alone baked them, so this is a new 'flavor' for me - and as far as the flavor:These cookies are really good in a 'different' or 'holiday' way (I'm not able to eat more than 2 at a time, and I probably won't bake but once a year). As far as the smell while baking: Wonderful! My home definitely has that 'holiday baking smell' that no candle can replicate. CHANGES I MADE: I was leary of the 'greasy cookie conundrum' that some other reviewers talked about, so I used 1 cup margarine, 1/4 cup butter flavor shortening, and 1/4 cup butter. My cookies turned out perfectly, without a strong butter flavor nor were they greasy. CHANGES I WILL MAKE NEXT TIME: I will cut the sugar back by 1/3 cup, because my taste buds felt like the unique flavor and spices were competing with the sweetness, and I think the sweetness should be a little less than, say, a chocolate chip cookie as this is a spice cookie, to me. (I've eaten sugar cookies that were less sweet than these, so I do think it's for sure too much sugar.) I give 5 Stars because I think it's a fantastic recipe to build on, and it's a fantastic treat for the holidays that is 'special', not just another sugar cookie.

UNBELIEVABLE!!! I cannot believe I made something that turned out so yummy. I made this Thanksgiving '03 and everybody LOVED it. It's repeating this year.

Mini Meatloaves

Added chopped onions to loaf, subtracted brown sugar from topping (I did this the first time I cooked it, based on personal tastes). AWESOME!

Eggnog I

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2006
REALLY good eggnog... and I didn't appreciate the whole "not too thick like other eggnog" thing, until I made this: Now I realize how gross store bought eggnog can be.

Glazed Meatloaf I

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
I modified the recipe out of necessity: I decided to make meatloaf at the last minute and didn't have mustard powder, so I used same amount of Coarse Ground mustard (has mustard seeds in it). I also didn't have beef boullion granules, so had to 'break up' a boullion cube instead. I did go ahead and double the sauce as others suggested. THIS SAUCE IS AWESOME!!! I don't care for meatloaf particularly, but my husband loves it. The sauce made me actually decide I would have to make meatloaf more often.

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2008
I halved the recipe, which was a big mistake. I couldn't stop 'tasting' it while the cupcakes were baking, thus I didn't have enough. Will double next time, just in case.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
OMG! Sooooo yummy!!! I was a bit concerned with the 3 cups of white sugar (too much? white?) so I used 1 cup Splenda, 1 cup dark brown sugar packed, and 1 cup white sugar. Perfect! I wanted to add icing, just because, so I made a glaze of lemon juice and confectioner's sugar. It really added some pop to the ginger, to me. But this recipe is totally delectable on its own.

Hudson's Baked Tilapia with Dill Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2011
I'm on Dukan Diet, so I used fat-free mayo and sub'd fat-free greek yogurt for sour cream; also, I only have dried dill weed... and this was FABULOUS over cod. My go-to dill sauce from now on.

Donna's Cheesy Quiche

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2005
I don't like quiche. That said, I actually liked this quiche. I made it for my 8 year old, who likes quiche (and what a good protein meal for him), and I sampled it because it smelled better than any quiche I had tried before. I was really surprised. I sauteed the onions in a combination of butter and olive oil; left out the salt. I gave it 5 stars because any quiche I like has to be good:)
