Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: May 3, 2011
Very good, I already had precooked rice in the fridge and black beans I had boiled up the day before. I chopped 3 small jalepenos into the onions and sauted them as well. Others said to add diced tomatoes, so I added some of my homemade salsa instead. I added two cups of chicken broth.

Bacon Wrapped Smokies

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2009
I made a triple receipe for a card party and kept them in an electric fry pan on low to keep warm. Needless to say the electric pan wasn't needed. It was hovered over until they were gone. It always feels good to walk away from a party and your appetizer was the one that was gobbled up.

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
Really good. I mixed half italian sausage in with half of the called for amount of hamburger. Yum! Was told that my version was better than the little 3rd generation Italian restaurant we frequent in St. Paul.

Sweet Potato Souffle III

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2008
I love this recipe. I make it with butternut squash, so that I can get my kids to eat winter squash. I have tried other souffle that have so much sugar in them, this doesn't need as much, and the vanilla helps alot in that regard. I have also added a little nutmeg, and cloves to this recipe, too. Makes it taste kind of like pumpkin pie.

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2008
Really, really good. I tripled the receipe. Baked the cakes in Jelly Roll pans, then I used a round cookie cutter to make individual cakes. I also took a clean spray bottle and put the coffee/Liqueor mixture and sprayed the coffee onto the cakes, that way everything was evenly distributed. I also always had to substitute the marscapone cheese for cream cheese because my local store was out of marscapone. It still tasted fab. With all of the left overs not used, I made a small triffle. No waste.

Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2008
I love this soup!!!! My family does too! I use fresh tomatoes from my garden. I run them through my KitchenAide strainer, and go from there. Fresh basil is always best, but you can use dried basil. I always start my soups with a roux (butter and flour) my family prefer to have a thicker soup and this always does the trick.

Pico de Gallo Chicken Quesadillas

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2008
I use Jalepeno peppers for the pico de gallo, it makes it have more bite. My husband would prefer habenero, but my kids wouldn't eat it then. I have altered the chicken for fish, as well as hamburger. Mahi Mahi works the best for fish quesadillas. Everytime I make this the kids think my quesadillas are better then restaurant quesadillas.

Boston Baked Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2008
This have good flavor, the only thing that I changed was making sure that the bacon was fried up first, to be able to keep it low-fat. I also added some hamburger to liven up the flavor, too. I like my beans on the sweeter side so I also added a bit more brown sugar. You could also sweeten up the beans by adding a bit of maple syrup. I was embarassed by how many people asked for the recipe at a large get together recently. There just beans, but a huge, huge hit.

You have to really like figs. Perfect for a sophisticated party. Just the right amount of sweet and salty.

Sweet Potato Pie I

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2007
This was really good. I used much more sweet potatoes than called for, probably about 1 1/2cups more. I like a deep dish pie. And it also made it more firm. My kids didn't notice a difference between it and pumpkin pie.

The Perfect Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2007
I have chopped up shrimp and crab meat to put into this also. I also have sprinkled slivered and chopped, toasted almonds on top for a garnish and more texture. I have also added chopped red bell pepper for extra color. Always a hit!

Chocolate Cavity Maker Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2006
Absolutely the best chocolate cake I have ever made. No fail cake. Can't possibly ever mess this one up. If you wanted to change it up in the chocolate flavor you could substitute for a different flavor liqueur, Ameretto, bananna, almond, etc.

Plum Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2006
If you like rubarb or strawberry crisp you will like this pie. Made for a family function and it went fast. I didn't think that the plums were too tart. Next time, I will mix in another fruit, raspberries, blackberries, or even some blueberries. You have to have it a la mode!
