Tiramisu II

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2008
12/23 Ok - Here's what I did: used 1tlb rum to 6 fresh pulled shots of espresso from Starbucks. I brushed the mixture onto each of the lady fingers twice using a pastry brush but I didn't use all of the mixture, so I probably could of halved the ingredients. However, I think they could have used more espresso flavor so next time I will brush the lady fingers with four layers. I also used 3 packages of lady fingers and made three layers instead of two in an 8x8 brownie pan. I also added 1 1/2 tbl powdered sugar in the whipped cream. Everything else I did the same. Tasted Great!

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2008
Well... 1300 reviewers can't be wrong! This recipe was awesome. My boyfriend ate two servings! I didn't have any wine on hand so I used chicken broth and I didn't have any paprika so I just used onion salt and garlic powder. I went a little heavy with the salt so next time I will be more careful but the overall result was a great, decadent dinner!

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2008
My boyfriend loved it! I also used a very inexpensive cut of meat for this recipe. A pork roast that cost me 1.99 a pound. Not bad for a recipe that fed us for 3 meals!

Marinated Flank Steak

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2008
Really great and really easy. I used balsamic in place of red wine vinegar as some of the other reviews stated.

Pie Crust IV

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
I always use butter instead of shortening which makes for the perfect crust. Except this time when I used butter flavored shortening and it was awesome!

Oh my gosh! It is rare that I take the time to copy a recipe down and add it to my "personal" file. This will definitely be added as an all time favorite!

Tasty Buns

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2008
This didn't taste very good and didn't rise very well. I am rating it a three because I think the rising part was my fault

Allie's Delicious Baked Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2008
This was good but next time I will cut the apple in pieces and bake for a shorter amount of time. Everything was done but it was hard to eat. Also, I sprinkle the tops with raw sugar before I baked them.

Almond Pound Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
This was delicious! I think my boyfriend ate half of it in one sitting! I didn't have a bundt pan so I used two loaf pans and it turned out fine. So yummy!

Chocolate Zucchini Bread I

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
This was really good. I only had large loaf pans so my loaves turned out really small. Next time I will multiply the recipe to 1 1/2 times to get bigger loaves.

OMG! This was so good. I added 2 tsp vanilla and 1 tsp cinnamon. I used my pampered chef stoneware pans and the crust was fantastic!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2008
I gave it four stars only because I adjusted the recipe to fit what I had in my cupboard. I used half whole wheat flour and double the milk to get the consistency I wanted. They were delicious!

Honey Wheat Bread I

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2008
I guess I better carve out the extra time each weekend to make these loaves! I don't think we'll be buying quite as much bread at the grocery store. This recipe was fantastic! I baked them in my stoneware loaf pans from pampered chef which are well worth the 19.50 each. They give the bread a crispier crust. 8/25/10 Still love this recipe but have to leave the bread in the full 35 minutes and sometimes longer to ensure it is not doughy in the middle. This is a common issue I have with stoneware. However, the crust is totally worth it. 4/12/11 I now double the recipe to make two loaves which extends the baking time to 55 - 60 minutes. I also increase the sugar to 2 Tbl and use 1 cup of regular milk in place of the evaporated milk. Also, tonight I punched out the dough in a square, sprinkled it with cinnamon sugar and raisins and rolled up. Then I placed it in my bread pan and let rise as usual. It was AWESOME!

Roasted Rack of Lamb

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
Delicious on lamb chops too! Just sear in the pan and broil the crust for one minute in the oven. No need to bake them.
