Seven Layer Tortilla Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2006
This was super easy and fun to make! I added green chiles, black olives, corn, and shredded up some rotisserie chicken and layered it on as I saw fit, topping each layer with cheese. I also used low fat refried beans, low fat black beans, and low fat mexican cheese to make it that much more healthy! After it came out of the oven, I put some sliced avocado and tomatoes on, and it was a hit! My boyfriend couldn't get enough (in fact writing this review makes me want to whip one up right now!!!) Give it a try tonight!

Cream Puff Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2007
Is it possible to be in love with a dessert? I saw this recipe and tried to find an excuse to make it. So a work function came up and I whipped it up for that. The dough part may seem intimidating, but it's very easy! After baking, it bubbles up quite a bit, but i just pushed the crust down to the bottom of the pan to lay flat for filling. I spread a whole jar of hot fudge in the bottom of the crust, then proceeded to fill with the pudding/cream cheese mixture. By the way, as users mention, make sure you beat this VERY well to get the clumps out. I had to put the whisk attachment on my kitchenaid mixer and put it on high to make it smooth. And furthermore, it doesn't taste anything like cream cheese, but it turned out perfectly regardless so I'll still be sticking to the recipe. I topped with the cool whip and drizzled Hershey's chocolate syrup, then also added crumbled chocolate cookies on top. I could probably eat this whole pan myself! One important thing to note, this tastes like a gigantic eclair, so I personally would name this "Eclair Pie" since it doesnt seem at all like a cake, or like a cream puff. Highly HIGHLY recommend.

Kalamata Pork Tenderloin with Rosemary

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2007
This was a delicious pork recipe, and turned out a lot better than I expected. I love the flavor of kalamata olives, which is a must if you make this recipe. One word of advice, however. The recipe says to brown the pork then let sit on a plate. For some reason, I assumed you just brown the outside and it would all cook thoroughly later. I was wrong. You must cook the pork thoroughly when it is in the pan. Probably a blonde moment on my part, but if you are reading the recipe, understand it must be cooked during the begining.

Slow Cooker Carolina BBQ

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2008
Absolutely delicious! Yes, it does emit a strong smell of vinegar while cooking, but it's certainly worth it. I followed the recipe exactly as stated, however I cooked on high for 5 1/2 hours and it was just perfect. You can do this if you don't have the whole 12 hours to cook this in.

Spicy Basil Chicken

Reviewed: May 5, 2008
DELICIOUS! I am a huge Thai food fan because of the complex flavors Thai dishes have. This was my first try at making Thai and I must say I was really impressed! It tasted robust and flavorful, was super easy to make. The ingredients were sort of difficult to find at a smaller supermarket, but I went to Cost Plus World Market and found the chile oil, oyster sauce, etc. Worth the hunt! I love that its all made in one pan - less clean up! I served over sticky rice. The only comment is that it came out very spicy when made as directed. I personally love spiciness, so does my boyfriend, but his mom couldn't eat it due to the heat. You can omit the hot peppers or use olive oil instead of chile oil to take it down a notch. I'll make again!

Pistachio Cake II

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2007
I'm not a big cake fan, but wanted something easy to make for a work potluck. But OH MY GOSH THIS CAKE WAS TASTY!!!! I put crushed pistachios on top, and made the "icing" out of coolwhip and pistachio pudding mix. Excellent! I imagine you could substitute other flavors of pudding in this cake and it would be a wonderful alternative.

Unbelievably Awesome Barbeque Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2005
I made this for my boyfriend, and although I was a little worried about how Sesame oil, BBQ, and marinara flavors would work, it turned out great! Much better than I had even hoped! This was very easy, and I'd definately make again. I used to the Boboli crust, and it seemed to be delicious. Buying it prebaked made it super simple. YUM!

Magic Peanut Butter Middles

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
I baked them for my boyfriend (firefighter in training) to bring to his firefighter buddies. They were hit! I'd even give them five stars except they were a pain to make. I even tried to flatten the chocolate dough and plop a peanut butter mixture on top, then wrap around. Still pretty hard to cover the peanut butter. My chocolate dough didn't turn out too crumbly, but I followed the directions EXACTLY and I realize that by mixing the wet ingredients into the dry VERY thoroughly with my kitchenaid, they went from dry to moist - maybe this is the problem others are running into, they are undermixing. Anyhow, They cracked when I flattened so for that reason alone I may add a little extra water or maybe a couple of tblspoons of sour cream to avoid that. The end result was worth the effort! Don't skip the sugar on top...and these go great with milk.

Cocktail Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
I made these for a Christmas party, and I think out of the whole spread, these were THE BEST thing at the party! Perfect amount of sweet and tangy. The only thing I changed was I added about 1/4 cup of Worceshire sauce, and then threw in a package of smoked Hillshire Farms "lil weenies" since I had them on hand and wanted the dish to go further. The smokey flavor on the weenies with the sweet tangy sauce was to die for! Enjoy!

Dolmathes

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2008
Following the recipe as-is would probably yield about 3 stars, it's not lemony enough. But I made the following additions and had rave reviews from my dinner guests: While rice was simmering, I added about 2 tablespoons of dried dill but also added the fresh dill as directed later. The recipe calls for the juice of 1 lemon while the rice is simmering? Forget that! I added like 3/4 cup! It wasnt fresh either, I used the bottled stuff to save time. After rice was done simmering, I followed directions but I also added about 1 tablespoon of fresh chopped mint. After stuffing leaves and placing in the pan, again I put approx 3/4 cup of lemon juice and about 1/4 cup of olive oil on the tops of them all. I baked them as directed, and then right after they came out of the oven, I squeezed a fresh lemon on the top and let it cool. I prefer these cold, so I served them as such. ENJOY!

Rich Turkey Gravy

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
I have made this twice now, once for Thanksgiving and once for Christmas. It turned out perfect on Thanksgiving, but a little runny on Christmas. I think it was my fault though because I was too busy multitasking. The flavor is extremely rich and amazing.

Spinach Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: May 29, 2008
This recipe was delicious. I marinated the chicken overnight in italian dressing which kept the chicken itself juicy and flavorful. I added lots of fresh garlic to the spinach mix - maybe 4 or 5 cloves. And instead of pimentos, I used fire roasted red peppers because they were easily available and inexpensive. Turned out delicious and pretty! I'll make again.

Taco Seasoning III

Reviewed: May 10, 2008
Can't mess this one up! I needed a mexican seasoning for chicken that would ultimately be shredded and go into a mexican casserole, so I made this only used onion powder, garlic poder, and omitted the cumin since I didn't have any. I was very loose with the measuring and it still turned out great. I threw in a dash of cayenne for some heat and my chicken turned out delicious. Can't screw this one up, people! :)

Sausage and Parmesan Puffs

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2007
This was a risk because I usually like to find recipes that are highly rated before taking the time to make. However my boyfriend came across this one and suggested I make it so I went out on a limb! and BOY they were great!!!! I used Jimmy Dean 1/2 fat sausage as well as fresh grated parmesan (I wouldn't suggest anyone use anything but fresh) and they turned out fantastic. Using 1/2 fat sausage obviously to cut back on some fat, but I think full fat would have had WAY too much grease. Give these a try!

Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: May 4, 2008
I haven't made actual bread items in years, but I wanted to give the dough hook some use from my Kitchenaid. So I followed this recipe except changed a few things. Instead of cutting dough into 32 pieces, I cut into 16 which made bigger pretzels. This is perfect for using these as rolls for pretzel sandwiches. I also brushed with egg mixture and salt, but once they came out of the oven I also put melted butter on top. Make sure you store these in a airtight container/bag and you can easily store or freeze them and warm up in mixrowave for about 15 seconds. Super moist and chewy. I'll make these again!

Pineapple and Basil Sorbet

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2010
AMAZING! I had high hopes because I had a watermelon basil salad a while back in San Francisco...but this was even better than I had hoped. I just pureed everything and poured into popsicle molds - no need for an ice cream maker if you don't have one. I can't even describe the flavor - it's kind of how pinapple and coconut come together to make a whole other undescribable flavor (pina colada)....this is the same thing! DELICIOUS and unlike anything else!

Spinach Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
This cheeseball is delicious! I made it for a Christmas party that I was hosting. Keep in mind that it makes a HUGE cheeseball, it seemed more than twice as large as the normal cheeseballs you see at the store. Next time, I will likely halve the recipe.

Apricot Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2008
I had been itchin' to make muffins for a few weeks now, and my mom sent me this recipe. I was a little worried because I don't like cakey muffins, I like them much more dense. Well, I added some dried cranberries in place of half of the apricots, and also added about 1/2 cup of walnuts. THEY TURNED OUT SO DELICIOUS! Perfect consistancy. I should note that I totally forgot to add the 1 egg, but I wonder if thats why they were the dense consistancy I liked. Still good minus the egg and less fat! I'll continue to do sans egg.

Pani Popo (Hawaiian Coconut Bread)

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2007
This was unbelievably delicious! And SO easy! I agree with other reviewers, its much better when it's soggy on the bottom, which mine was. I keep eating the leftovers as they are good cold, or right out of the oven. I've even warmed them up and they are still tasty! Only one thing, I would really only serve these as desert and not with a meal, but that's just me.

Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts II

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2010
I've made these ever since I was a kid! Only I put a dab of ketchup on the water chestnut before cooking. I know it sounds odd, but it carmelizes and really adds just enough flavor to make the appetizer over the top. We serve with BBQ sauce on the side to dip it into. I've done this with turkey bacon when I'm wanting to watch calories, and it's delicious as well.
