Chocolate Rum Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2008
Took this to an end-of-season soccer party and, now, 2 weeks later, parents are still asking me for the recipe. (And, I didn't even have rum....I used Canadian whiskey.) It's delicious. Don't get apprehensive about pouring over the glaze. My first reaction was "Where is all of this liquid going to go?" Trust me....it finds a place. I took it warm to the party (probably about an hour after completing) and it was perfect. Next time, I'm using rum and pecans.

Beef Tenderloin With Roasted Shallots

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
I made this and it turned out delicious. I have not read through the almost 500 reviews, but suffice it to say that, in my experience, 375 degrees to "deeply brown" the shallots is a stretch. More like "deeply steam." If you want them brown, use 425-450 degrees and watch them carefully.

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2005
Wow, this is a great recipe (although I admit to altering without trying the original). Spent all day out in the cold, only to come in tonight to a steaming crock pot full of delicious, hot chili. Quite a treat. Like others noted here, I used V8 juice instead of tomato, and I held back about 1 1/2 cups and replaced with 14.5 oz. S&W Cajun stewed tomatoes (nice flavors in this brand, including allspice). I also added 1/2 tsp. cocoa powder, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. garlic powder and replaced 1/2 tsp. of white sugar with 1 tbsp. brown sugar. Fed it to a group of 7, and there were raves around the table. Thanks, George.

Jeff's Chili Con Queso

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2006
Very good. I added the whole can of chili (I mean...c'mon....what are you going to do with the remaining 1/4 can??!!), 2 tbsp. chopped sliced pickled jalapenos and one small can sliced black olives. Also, for the American cheese, I used Velveeta. Took it to a poker game last night and the guys flipped over it.

Rhubarb and Strawberry Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2008
I followed the suggestions, i.e., made sure it sat a full 30 min prior to serving and leaving in closed oven for 20 min after baking. Cooled for about 4 hours and was DEVOURED at a picnic. Excellent.

Authentic Green Goddess Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2006
This was an excellent dressing; my guests loved it. It definitely benefits from 2 hours in the refrigerator prior to serving.

Marinade for Steak I

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2006
Great. Used on some center-cut sirloins, and it added tremendous flavor and tenderized. All my guests were very happy.

Irish Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2010
Delicious. The only slight change I made to the recipe was the use of five Yukon Gold potatoes, instead of the four requested, and I cut them each into six pieces vs. the quartering in the original. When you're ready to add the biscuits, don't fret if the potatoes aren't quite done--they'll get there by the end. Use a tablespoon to ladle on the batter, but be somewhat generous in your portions. Served in bowls on a cold, rainy night and it was a big hit.

Caramel Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
Really good pie. Wasn't sure what to expect, but the caramels in lieu of typical corn syrup adds a very nice complexion to this. Just keep your eye on the crust for burning, as 45+ minutes is a long time. I'd suggest getting your foil ready for the crust before you pop it in the oven.

Cream Corn Like No Other

Best Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2006
Good recipe but I tweaked it some. Used a big can of cream of mushroom soup (26 oz) with 3/4 cup of milk (would use 1 cup next time). Added 2 TBSP of pimentos and topped with Durkee fried onions instead of chips. Would really be good with small can of sliced water chestnuts. Good basic recipe.

Pistachio Cream Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
Very good, but the frozen whipped topping gives it a slight chemical-like taste (I just don't care for the stuff). This is a wonderful recipe; I'll just make it with real whipped cream next time. It will really make a difference (as might some shaved chocolate, either white or regular). Nice complexity, with the crunch crust, rich cream cheese layer and creamy pudding & topping. Took to a work potluck and people went crazy. Brought the few remaining pieces home and they were devoured for dessert. Delicious. I also only added 3/4 cup powdered sugar vs. the prescribed 1 cup and glad I did. Was not overly sweet this way. Highly recommend (but remember the real whipped cream!).

Fajita Marinade I

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2006
I used this on top sirloin and it was very good. (I also followed earlier folks' advice and replaced the soy sauce with Lea Perrins.) I was worried when I sampled the meat off the grill (don't overcook!) because it was quite spicy. It did, though, mellow out and blend well with the other flavors once the steak was smothered in onions, peppers, guacamole and sour cream within a tortilla. Will make a gain.

Elegant Orzo with Wilted Spinach and Pine Nuts

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2006
I'm in the "just okay" camp. Definitely needs some more zip. After the pine nuts and spinach are sauteed, my reaction was "That's a lot of oil to pour over the orzo." But, it works out fine. The problem is that it IS too bland. I'd lower the olive oil next time and replace it with red wine vinegar, tsp. of salt and 1/2 red onion. Looks pretty...has great potential...but B-L-A-H.

Spinach and Orzo Salad

Reviewed: May 7, 2006
Good....not necessarily great. Definitely needed some salt, and I would ramp up the pepper (I used black).

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2005
Good all-around chicken pot pie. Kids loved it. I added 1 TBSP pimentos and small can of mushroom pieces. I'd like to try it with frozen peas and tiny onions next time. Will make again.

My Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2005
Very good chili. Even though I like a "thinner" chili, this was a little too thin for me at the beginning; it came around, though, after adding tomato paste, brown sugar and a couple of shakes of Worcestershire. I'd also cut the requested salt in half and adjust at the end.
