Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2011
Yummy! The Sauce I have been searching for! The beauty of it is you can make it exacty as written and it is great, or you can add your own little somethings to change it up. My additions: Sauted some finely chopped onion and garli in the butter. I added some chopped sundried tomatoes once the cheese went in and then I added strips of left over turkey breast. At the very end I added a can of diced tomatoes, drained and a little pre-heated. Mixed it all up and served over penne. BF raved! Have a little left over for lunch, we will see how well it re-heats. Next time I plan on adding some red pepper flakes for a kick! Thanks for the recipe!

Favorite Bourbon Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2011
Total Disaster. Rating based soley on the outcome I would give this 1 star. But to be fair, I don't know if it was such a disaster because maybe I did something wrong? First of all, the recipe calls for a 9" deep dish pie crust. The filling however, only filled up about 1/2 inch of the pie dish. While cooking, it "rose" up to about halfway up the crust, but once it came out and cooled, it deflated down to maybe just 1/4 inch of filling. And what little there was, tasted awful, very eggy and not yummy at all. The only change I made to the recipe was that I used brandy instead of bourbon (all I had on hand). What I am wondering is that I used egg beaters instead of whole eggs. Would that have made such a huge difference? I am hesitant to even attempt this again.

Pumpkin Pie III

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2010
My BF said "This is probably the best pumpkin pie I've ever eaten!" Thanks! I did make a couple of minor changes: I used ginger snaps for the crust, added 1 TB pumpkin pie spice instead of the cinnamon and ginger, and used fat free evaporated milk. It was awesome! It was so good we ate it up in 3 days (just the 2 of us) and he begged me to make another one. It was so simple to make I didn't mind, and for the second batch I substituded 1/2 of the sugar for no-calorie sugar (like splenda for baking) and didn't notice any difference! This will be my go-to pumpkin pie for sure!

Swope Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2010
Delicious! I was pleasantly surprised at how good this simple recipe came out! Also surprised at how much it rose. I only made half the recipe because I only had enough buttermilk for one loaf. Also, I used lowfat buttermilk and it is wonderful. I think i will try making it again into little loaves with pumpkin pie spices and maybe some chopped up prunes or cranberries! If it works out they'll make great holiday gifts! Thanks for the recipe!

Slow Cooker Green Beans, Ham and Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2008
This was okay, but not too tasty. I think I overcooked it because the beans came out somewhat mushy. Also, it felt really greasy to me. It made A LOT of beans, and I ended up throwing most of it out. It was rather bland and I needed to add a lot of salt. Probably won't be making this again.

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2008
Wow! DELICIOUS! I added garlic and some shallot like others recommended, and left some beans whole. I also added a handful of frozen corn kernels as it was warming up and served it with sour cream and some crusty bread... Next time I will try to saute the garlic and onion before adding it to the blender to give it a deeper flavor, but all in all, this is a keeper and I will certainly make it again!

Spiced Apple Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
Delicious, except I cooked it for 25 minutes and it was still very mushy inside. Can probably handle 30-35 minutes. But it tasted really good.
