Frozen Margarita Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2015
I brought to a Superbowl party and it got raves!!! My only change was to use a premade granola crust, which I think was better. Easy to throw together & a nice finish to a testosterone-heavy southwest menu. :-)

Fresh Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2014
I was in a hurry when I made this cake and didn't follow the egg white/egg yolk directions as written (I beat the yolks into the whites). But it turned out OK in the end. I baked it in a 10" nonstick pan and didn't have a problem with dripping in the oven. Also, it came out of the pan beautifully. It was a bit juicy on top when done, but we just ran it through the broiler for a few minutes and it was DEVOURED by all!!!

Fudge Truffle Cheesecake from EAGLE BRAND®

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2014
This year's Easter dessert, along with a bananas foster upside-down cake! AMAZING cheesecake, very rich, even with one block of lo-fat cream cheese! I had my usual issue with cracking, but covered it with more chocolate, which added to the decadence. The only change I made was omit the sugar in the crust. I'd give it eleven stars if the ratings went that high!

Moist Chocolate Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2014
Since I don't have a special Valentine this year, I made a batch to bring to work for Valentine's Day. I increased the chocolate chips in the batter to 1 cup, which made them even better. I also used half brown sugar and half white sugar, and I got 18 muffins without skimping on the portions. Watched baking time and started checking at 15 minutes, and they were well done at 18 minutes. They came together fast and easy too. Not overly sweet, better yet the second day, even better slightly warmed. I had a dozen very happy Valentines!

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2014
A few slight changes. I used about 1-1/2 pounds of meat; a half cup of seasoned bread crumbs and half cup of wheat bran (no noticeable texture difference). I forgot the Parm cheese in the balls, but no biggie. I just added it to the finished dish. I also baked the balls 30 minutes at 350, then slid them into the sauce, which I already had underway. I happened to have a half-finished bottle of red wine (!), so I added a cup to the sauce. After cooking down for the recommended time, the sauce was VERY thick, so I added a little more wine! And a small can of tomato sauce. ;-) My dad, who is a gravy fiend, LOVED it. Easy, quick and delicious - my three favorite ingredients!

Roasted Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2014
I used three cartons of button mushrooms (on sale; couldn't resist), which was a bit more than doubling it. I roasted the shrooms 20 minutes with some fresh rosemary sneaked from my neighbor's bush, plus some fancy lemon-flavored olive oil. Skipped the heavy cream and used fat-free evap milk. Sparingly used my immersion blender in the pot instead, cause I'm my father's daughter and like chunky soup. Then forgot and got caught up in a great old movie and came back an hour later to find the soup cooked down halfway but thank goodness not burned. Threw in a little more broth and a few spinach leaves that needed to be used. AMAZING!!!! Thank you!!!

Coconut Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2013
I thought I was finished my Christmas baking, but this recipe caught my eye. And I'm glad it did!! This bread is AMAAAAAAAAAZING!!!!!!! I subbed 1/2c. brown sugar for part of the white sugar and 3/4c. whole wheat with AP flour. Upped the amounts of coconut and white chocolate to 1-1/2 c. each and increased the banana to about 3/4c. more. Got 5 mini loaves and had to freeze four of them so I wouldn't be tempted. Can't wait to share this one with my friends and family - thanks!!!!

Apple Cake and Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2013
Made for my yoga class Christmas potluck, and it got RAVES!!! I used half AP flour and half whole-wheat; half white and half brown sugar. I also roughly chopped my apples (used 2 Galas) because I like texture, which worked well. The sauce, well . . . I'd cut the sugar down, as it was VERY sweet, but we just drizzled a bit onto each slice. I think a shot of rum to the sauce would be excellent!

Sausage Balls

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2013
I made these for our office breakfast party today. Co-workers raved, and several asked for the recipe. I used locally made chicken-green onion sausage and 2 c. of shredded Italian cheese mix. I'd suggest to back off a bit on the cheese, maybe 1-1/2c instead of 2 cups; as much as I kneaded it, some of it didn't get incorporated into the mix. Otherwise, it made a very picky group very happy - thanks!!!

Blueberry Zucchini Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2013
I'm excited to be the first to rate this delicious recipe! Moist and juicy; an excellent way to use the last half zucchini I had left over from another recipe, plus the last of the blueberries from this year's tiny crop. I didn't measure the zucchini, but I figured it was a little over a cup, but it worked out fine. Only thing I did differently was use 1/2c. whole wheat flour instead of all white, but that's one of my standard baking secrets. Made a dozen big, gorgeous, plump muffins just right for breakfast or anytime. Couldn't eat just one, no way, and I don't plan to share these beauties with anyone!

Chocolate Beer Cupcakes With Whiskey Filling And Irish Cream Icing

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2013
AMAAAAAAAAZING cupcakes!!!! I skipped the filling, as I had a lot of baking (and a lot of parties) to do. The cupcakes themselves were DIVINE, and rich-tasting. I didn't change a thing otherwise, but next time I'll make the filling and rate it even higher. :-)

Chocolate Rapture Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2012
Made this for Christmas dinner. Moist and delicious! I thought the directions were a bit off too, but I figured it out. Didn't have quite enough coconut - maybe 3/4 cup, which was plenty - but it came out very well. I tossed in a little more chocolate because we're a family of chocoholics and frosted it with chocolate buttercream. Will make this again!

Cheesy Thumbprint Appetizers with Hot Pepper Jelly

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2012
Made three batches of these little goodies for Christmas parties. Big hit! I made it as is, and used Tabasco red pepper jelly. I also made them a lot smaller than specified. They go fast, so next time I'll at least double the recipe.

Blueberry Crumb Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2012
I made this to take to my BF's sister's house for Hurricane Isaac. The only change I made was to use 2c all purpose flour and 1c whole wheat. BIG hit with the evacuees!!! Had lots of requests for another, bigger batch. I might add chopped pecans in the crust next time. Thanks for making us happy during the big blow!

Lemon Lavender Avocado Loaf

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2012
I've never cooked with lavender but was curious. And I don't care for plain avocado (although I love a good chunky guacamole - go figure), but this recipe intrigued me. I tasted a lavender bud and thought it was quite strong, so I heated the milk and steeped the lavender in the milk overnight, then discarded the buds. This gave the milk a nice light lavender taste and no crunchy buds. I added a cup of chopped pecans for texture, which came out really good. One of my "guinea pigs" loved the bread, and so did I, It came out just a tad tangy and completely delicious. I also made one 9"x 5" and three mini loaves for sharing. Next time I make it I might just go hog wild and leave the buds in. Thanks!

French Leek Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2012
Muy delicioso! I wasn't sure about no eggs either, so I slipped one in the mixture. I subbed the light cream (couldn't find it anyway) with fat-free evap milk, and it worked fine. The only thing wrong with this recipe was that it only made one dainty little civilized pie. Easy enough to double, and maybe try the Gruyere or Swiss mixed with another similar cheese. Thanks for an amazing recipe!

Pineapple Zucchini Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2012
I subbed 1-1/2 c. whole wheat flour to the all-purpose and cut the sugar to 2 cups, one of white and one of brown. I got two dozen regular size muffins and a half dozen jumbos. Also one cup of oil (WAYYY too much at 2 cups!!) and one of applesauce. The most work was shredding the zucchini. ;-) I might cut back the cinnamon next time, as one of my taste-testers thought it was too much. I won't decide until I try it again. Overwhelming positive response; next up, see what Papa Bear thinks.

Lemon Souffle Cheesecake with Blueberry Topping

Reviewed: May 14, 2012
Un-be-LIEVE-ABLE!!!!! Made this for Mother's Day, and it got RAVES from everyone! My brother nearly tackled me as I was wrapping the leftovers to take home! The only thing I did differently was used two blocks of lo-fat cream cheese (my secret!) with the full fat and just cooked the blueberries down with the sugar. Didn't feel like juicing and all that work. And no one was any wiser. I also used a 10" springform, and the cake rose to the edge of the pan. Thanks for a 10-star recipe!

Fried Cabbage I

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2012
I made this last night to use a cabbage I got in the St. Patrick's Day parade. Used two gala apples and cut the butter to 2 tablespoons. That said, simple and delicious! The cabbage stayed a bit crunchy, but that's how I like it. Thanks!
