Banana Cake VII

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2004
Absolutely love this version! I did however take the advice of one comment that suggested I scale the recipe to 36 servings for a 9x13 pan and it was a perfect measure. On making this a second time I made 2 changes: First I swapped 1/2 the white sugar for packed brown sugar and instead of allspice I added 1/4 tsp nutmeg and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Both ways are great, the moistest recipe I've ever made!

Pecan Pie I

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2004
I give this 5 stars because my family enjoyed it emmensely and my husband, being the pecan pie expert, raved over it! I think my 9 inch deep dish was too deep since it didn't fill enough and it took nearly 70 minutes to cook. I will try it with a smaller dish and pecans halves since I feel the chopped reduces the flavour of the pecans. Sure to be a regular in our home! Thanx!

Delicious Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2005
Great... simply the nice and chewy, delicious peanut butter cookie that pleases everyone! I also took the advice of others and used 1 C PB rather than the 3/4. Also to note, with the mention of the cookies being too flakey, I increased the flour by a couple TBSP and they were absolutely perfect, just what I was looking for! Thanx a million!

Eggless Milkless Butterless Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2005
I give this a middle of the road rating because my family was split on the cake. The kids loved it! Plain and simple, they could've ate the whole cake themselves. As for my husband and I, we found it to be much too heavy for our liking. I also had to add 10 extra minutes of baking just to get the center cooked completely. The taste was fine but the texture was very poor.

Cappuccino on Ice

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2005
Absolutely, positively what I was looking for! I've been house bound by illness for more than 2 months and I miss my flavoured drinks! The strong brewed coffee is mandatory for the complete taste! Will be making all the time! Thanx for sharing!

Turkey Pot Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2005
Delish! Especially with my grandma's homemade pastry and the post about the blandness. I was sure to taste before filling the pie and decided to add a tsp. of poultry seasoning rather than more boullion as well as a little more pepper... it was great, can't wait for Easter turkey left overs! Thanx!

Buffalo Chicken Wings I

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2005
Perfect! I've been restaurant cooking for many years and I've always loved the basic "shaking my wings up in a bowl of Louisanna Hot Sauce" and serving them up that way. I'm glad I tried them this way since the butter added that extra flavour I was looking for! For those wondering why their sauce doesnt stick, I'm willing to bet that they are using margarine... butter is essential!

Green Bean and Portobello Mushroom Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2005
Despite switching out the cheddar for deep fried onions, I give this recipe a perfect rating! The taste, the presentation, the ease and make-ahead ability deserve nothing less! I've been ill and it was the first dish I've made in months for the big Easter dinner (45+ people) and it was more than a hit! I loved the mushroom sauce so much before adding the green beans I turned around and made it a second time as chunky soup! The family devoured it! I've since made it again with whole & powdered garlic, regular mushroom soup and plain mushrooms... again a hit with everyone, even added left over rice for a twist the next day! Thanx a million for sharing!

Buffalo Style Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2005
I realize that the dressing makes the pizza but I substituted Feta for blue cheese in Bill's Blue Cheese Dressing recipe from this site and the pizza was tremendous! Both the hubby and kids loved it despite their dislike for Feta! I also used homemade pizza dough which requires 20/25 mins at 25 degrees. I'll make again without a doubt! Thanx so much!

Field Grade Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2005
My hubby dislikes tomato sauce emmensely and loved it, can't stop talking about it! I'm allergic to red wine & choose to substitute for 1 TBSP white wine vinegar. I let it simmer about 3 hours and the kids couldnt wait. The aroma was awesome and the taste superb! It will be used time and again in this household! Thanx, thanx, thanx!!!

Grilled Delmonico Steaks

Reviewed: May 14, 2005
Ohhh Boy this one is salty!! Just looking at the recipe and knowing that steak seasoning and soy sauce are both extremely salty I did not add the 2 tbsp of salt listed and it was still way tooo much... and I love my salt. I am going to try this again since I did like the flavour but I'm going to eliminate the steak seasoning and use low sodium soy. I think it'll be what I was expecting then.

Fresh Rhubarb Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2005
It was ok, sweetness was perfect but I think the consistency was a little off... a little more flour perhaps, or that elusive egg! lol I will try it again and alter it a bit. Thanx!

Whipped Shortbread Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2005
I have found that there are 2 secrets to this recipe that have to be followed or disaster strikes as so many have noted. First, it has to be BUTTER... and nothing but butter. Margarine cannot be substituted for butter. :) The second is the beating time. Personally I abide by the following method: Beat butter by itself for 5 mins. Add icing sugar and beat another 5 mins. add flour in 3 equal portions (1/2 C at a time) beating for 2 minutes after additions 1 & 2 and then 10 mins after the last addition. So thats 14 more minutes than this author says but thats what works for me every time! As well I bake at 300F for 5-7 mins. These are absolutely fabulous cookies... they usually never make it to the serving plate! Yummy!
