Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2007
I took the advice of some other reviewers and prebaked the bottom crust for 7 minutes. Also brushed both crusts with egg white before baking. Added about 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon thyme, 1/4 teaspoon sage to the filling along with a little extra pepper. Also added three small potatoes to the vegetables and used fresh carrots. I found there to be plenty of "sauce" or "gravy" for the filling. I didn't double it. The filling with all of the chicken and vegetables was more than enough to fill my 9 inch deep dish pie plate. Excellent recipe. I will certainly make this again!

Raspberry Almond Coffeecake

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
Delicious! Made with frozen raspberries and used pecans instead of almonds (didn't have any). Also doubled the batter as many other reviewers suggested and prepared in a 9 inch springform pan. Will try again with other various berries.

Low-Fat Blueberry Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
These blueberry muffins were delicious. Didn't miss the fat. I didn't have wheat bran so I substituted half whole wheat and half all purpose flour for the wheat bran and the muffins came out delicious. Actually taste better when cooled completely or the next day rather than warm out of the oven.

Blackberry Pie I

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2009
Made this recipe for the first time the other day using the Pie Crust IV recipe from this site. It was wonderful. The pie came out perfect. I added a little cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg to the filling and dotted a couple tablespoons of butter over the filling before putting on the top crust, but other than that followed the recipe as written. Thanks for a simple and delicious blackberry pie.

Italian Confetti Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2009
I made this pasta salad this past weekend for a birthday party and it was delicious. The whole family couldn't get enough of it. The basil and tomatoes fresh from the garden were wonderful in this recipe. I halved the recipe by cooking 8 ounces of pasta and halving the dressing. Next time I might add a little Parmesan cheese, not that it was needed just for and added flavor element.

Pie Crust IV

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2009
I have been on the search for a pie crust that works for me for years and this one has finally ended my search. I have used this pie crust recipe several times now and every time the crust comes out perfect. It rolls out beautifully and once baked results in a flaky, tender crust. I have made both single and double crust pies with this recipe and all have turned out perfect. Thank you for finally putting an end to my pie crust frustration!

Cheese Ravioli with Three Pepper Topping

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2008
Made this for dinner tonight! It was great! Quick, easy and delicious! Used a little more red pepper flake for some added heat. Also, used a little less chicken stock and added in some half and half at the end of cooking. Sprinkled with Parmasan cheese and served with a nice green salad. Great way to use up some peppers from the garden.

Southern Made Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
Made this cheese ball this year for a New Year's Eve party and it was delicious! Everyone loved it! We loved the fact that it has a little kick and isn't just the same old cheese ball.

Mom's Island Treasures

Reviewed: May 22, 2008
These cookies were delicious!!! I was looking for a recipe to use up some coconut in the pantry and I came upon this one. Wow! The only change I made was semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of milk (I didn't have milk chocolate on hand). The cookies came out chewy, rich and buttery. Thanks so much for the great recipe!

Stovetop Granola

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2008
I make this granola weekly. We eat it most mornings for breakfast. It is also a great snack. I do add cinnamon and vanilla sometimes as some other reviews have also suggested also nutmeg sometimes as well. I have tried it with lots of different fruit and nuts. I have also shared the recipe with many of my friends. Everyone who tries it wants the recipe. It is so quick and easy to make, giving it the advantage over many other granola recipes.

Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2007
I made this cake for a group friends and it was a huge hit. Gone in minutes! It was easy to make and the taste and texture were perfect. I did however have to bake it quite a bit longer than the recipe said. That may just be my oven, but I baked it for probably closer to 70 minutes. If you make this cake, just be sure to check it frequently for to see if it is done. Mine was a still a little underdone in the middle, even with the extra time, but I would prefer it that way rather than overdone and dried out. All in all, a delicious and moist coffee cake!

Quick Greek Pasta Salad with Steak

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2007
This pasta salad is wonderful. I did however make a few changes. I used chicken in place of the steak and scallions in place of the shallots. Also added a little red pepper flake in at the end and left out the sunflower seeds as well. Made it for some friends and all of them loved it. A great dish for picnics and family gatherings too. Great warm, room temperature or served cold.

Bacon and Tomato Cups

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2004
I have made this recipe several times and every time someone asks me for the recipe. It is wonderful! I use "Grands" flaky biscuits though and use regular sized muffin tins. I found with the mini muffin tins (at least the ones I have) the filling all spilled out over the edge with the regular sized biscuits. So, I find that the "Grands" biscuits (halved like the recipe calls for) fit the regular muffin tins great without the need to prepare additional filling.

Baby BLT

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2004
I made this recipe for a holiday party and it got rave reviews. My husband loved them and so did the other party guests. I needed something dairy-free for a friend with an allergy and this recipe fit the bill! I will be making this one again and again!

Chocolate Chocolate Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2008
I made these for my husband who LOVES chocolate covered raisins. They were a huge hit!!! Only change I made was to substitute butter flavored crisco for the butter. Thanks for the great recipe!

Loved this recipe! I make it with shredded chicken and add a can of black beans and lime juice instead of lemon. A little chopped cilantro is a great addition too. Thanks for the great recipe!

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
This lasagna was delicious. I prepared it with "no boil" lasagna noodles and it came out great. I also used fresh spinach (I don't care for frozen) and it worked perfectly. Leftovers were even better the next day too.

Spiced Applesauce Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2008
This is a great basic recipe for a moist applesauce bread, but as others have said the spices must be doubled for it to live up to the "spiced" portion of it's name. I doubled the spices, added walnuts and raisins the first time I made it. Served it with a cream cheese icing. It was a big hit. The next time I made it I played with it a bit more and added dried cranberries, walnuts and the zest of one orange for a Christmas brunch. It was delicious!

Cranberry Martini

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
Made this martini for a New Year's Eve party and it was a huge hit. It is wonderful!!! Only adjustment we made was to add an extra jigger of cranberry juice. Also tried the recipe using Cranberry-Pomagranat juice. Even better! Great recipe you just have to try!

Neiman Marcus Cake II

Reviewed: May 22, 2008
This cake was good, but not great. I have usually had great results with recipes from this site rated as highly as this one is, but that was not necessarily the case with this one. The cake was good, but it did not live up to some of the glowing reviews. It tasted a lot like a box yellow cake mix. Which is always enjoyable, but not as great as some described this cake to be. Not sure that I will make it again.
