Good Dog Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2005
As a last-ditch effort to win favor with my friend's dog Sally, the pickiest poodle in the entire world, I made this recipe. I added about 1/3 cup peanut butter and only used 1 bouillon cube. I did have to add extra water in order to keep the dough together. Sally came over to investigate halfway through the process and didn't leave my side for the next hour. Needless to say, I have a new friend.

Pecan Pie III

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2007
I don't even like pecans and I'm going crazy over this recipe. I made it in a deep dish pie shell, so I used 3 cups of pecans. I added another 1/4 cup each of corn syrup and sugar, an extra egg, and a bit of extra vanilla. This will be my holy grail pecan pie recipe from now on. YUM.

Creamy Peach Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
This is the best coffee cake recipe I've ever tried, and I've tried plenty. I've used all flavors of preserves and I've replaced the preserves with 1 cup of various pie fillings. If you cut the cold butter into the flour mixture using a food processor, the texture of the cake is so incredibly tender. TRY THIS RECIPE! You'll love it.

Cinnamon Cream Syrup

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2008
DELICIOUS. I added a few grates of fresh nutmeg and a bit of cloves. I used the syrup to top some caramel pear tartlets. This is definitely a keeper.

Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
YUM. I honestly had no problems with this recipe, although I did have to add the juice of one extra lemon (3 total). The filling started to thicken very quickly, so the recipe's directions to "cook until thick" weren't very helpful. Just cook it until you're ready to pour it in the shell. It was delicious.

Frosted Sandwich Loaf

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2008
I made this for a baby shower and it was a HUGE hit. I made a few changes; I substituted turkey for the bologna and used regular mayo in place of the Miracle Whip. I didn't frost the outside with cream cheese; when I spread the fillings betweeh the layers, I spread nearly to the edge, then pressed the top layer down to squeeze the filling out to the edge. After the last layer, I trimmed the sides, cut the loaf in half, wrapped each half tightly in plastic wrap and placed it in the freezer for about four hours, which made slicing it thinly MUCH easier. I cut it into thin slices and served it arranged on a platter; I think frosting the outside with cream cheese would have made for a messy presentation. This was time-consuming but worth it.

Caramel Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2008
Oh my gosh. I want to marry this recipe. Seriously. The only thing I did differently was to omit the chocolate (don't like chocolate), substitute cinnamon-spice-flavored coffee creamer for the heavy cream, and I sprinkled 2 chopped peeled apples on the baked crust with the nuts before topping with the caramel. (swooning in delight)

Cucumber Dip II

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2008
This was really nice. I used only half an onion and seeded the cucumber before chopping. I also added about 2 tbsp. of hot sauce. I'm not sure I would've liked it with chips, but it would be great with a veggie platter or some nice crackers. I used this in an appetizer - baked and cooled wonton wrappers in muffin tins, spooned in a small amount of the dip and topped it with shredded garlic chicken.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2008
My *only* complaint about this recipe is that the salsa became very unattractive visually after an hour or so, even after adding lemon juice to slow the browning. On my second attempt, I replaced all of the sugar with an extra tablespoon of preserves and 2 tbsp. lemon juice, and that helped a bit without affecting the flavor. The combination of the cinnamon chips with the fruit is WONDERFUL. This is a definite keeper.

White Layer Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2008
I've had to come back and edit my review. The first time I tried it I wasn't too crazy about the texture, but after a second attempt I LOVE THIS RECIPE. Great moist, dense, fluffy texture and great flavor. Use clear vanilla and be sure to use real butter if you want a truly white cake. Also, don't overmix the batter when you add the flour or you'll form gluten, which will result in a tougher cake with holes and tunnels in it. I didn't have buttermilk so I mixed 2 parts sour cream and 1 part milk with great results (I substituted sour cream for all of the buttermilk before and it made the texture much more spongy - not appetizing). I also added 1/4 tsp. almond extract - you can't really taste it but it enhances the overall flavor.

Bacon Quiche Tarts

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2008
EXCELLENT! The cream cheese gives these tarts a wonderful texture. It's a very versatile recipe; I made half as written, and with another batch I doubled the amount of eggs, omitted the bacon, used swiss instead of cheddar, added a 10 oz package of spinach and a finely chopped package of mushrooms.

Spinach Dip with Water Chestnuts

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2008
This is a GREAT recipe. You can also find it on the back of the Knorr's vegetable soup mix box. I usually leave out the green onions and prepare it with fat-free sour cream and lowfat mayo, and you really can't tell it's low-fat.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2008
WONDERFUL! I use this on boneless skinless chicken breasts sometimes also. If you do, cut back on the red pepper.

Chicken Enchiladas V

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2008
This is a great recipe. I had to add salt and garlic to the chicken filling, but other than that it was perfect, just what I was in the mood for. We used whole wheat tortillas, lowfat sour cream, 98% fat free chicken soup, and a little extra cheddar to replace all the fat we tried to avoid. :)

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Nut Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
I followed the recipe exactly, baked them for exactly 20 minutes, took them to a function, and they disappeared in 15 minutes. Awesome recipe.

Swedish Meatballs

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
These were great. When I next make these I might change the amount of milk and breadcrumbs in the meatballs, since I prefer a firmer meatball (they were quite soft). I added a scant tablespoon of Worstershire sauce. A definite keeper!

Cream Puffs

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2007
These are wonderful. I didn't cool my batter before adding the eggs, I just beat them in on high speed to incorporate them quickly. I had no trouble with deflation, either, so I didn't poke holes. Just make sure you bake them long enough so the insides aren't soggy. For the filling, I mixed two boxes vanilla pudding mix with 2 1/2 cups eggnog, 1 1/2 cups milk and about 1/4 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg. Then I whipped the 2 cups of cream separately and folded it into the pudding. Filled the puffs, piled them on a pretty plate, sifted confectioner's sugar over the top and garnished with sprigs of fresh rosemary and sugared cranberries. Lovely recipe!

Marvelous Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
These are wonnnnnderful, probably the best stuffed mushrooms I've ever had. I usually add 1/2 cup crushed herb stuffing cubes (Pepperidge Farm) and decrease the mustard a bit. I've made these several times and have made an important observation: make sure you bake these in a larger pan than you think you'll need. As you baste the mushrooms, the cream picks up the flavor of the stuffing and it reduces and thickens in the pan. If your pan is too crowded, the cream doesn't have room to reduce properly and will be too thin.. just fyi. :-)

Sweet Potato Pie II

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
PERFECT pie. Didn't change a thing except that I didn't have any rum. It was perfect and silky and just the right amount of sweetness.

Heavenly Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2007
I LOVE THIS RECIPE. I used it to fill a chocolate cake. The only change I made was that I used 1/2 cup strong, cold coffee instead of water. It really amps up the chocolate flavor without adding a coffee taste.
