Baked Fruit Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2006
This recipe was awesome. I took it to a gathering last night and had rave reviews! I had several requests for the recipe. I am a professional chef, and friends always expect great things, and this recipe did not disappoint! This is going in my personal favorites file. Still scratching my head over the negative reviews. I did make some lowfat changes- I used neufchatel cheese and added my own crushed pineapple and shredded my own low fat swiss. Thanks for the great recipe.

White Chocolate Gorp

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2006
I got this recipe from the Indianapolis Junior League Cookbook 15 years ago and have made it every Christmas and Easter since. At the holidays I make a tin for everyone in my husband's office, and they start asking him for it at Thanksgiving! It is a nice gift for postman, school bus drivers, trash man etc. I sent this to both of my nephews in Iraq and it was the most requested item from both of them. I also send it with my son for his away golf matches on the bus. My original recipe called for 1-1.5 lbs of almond bark, not 2! I also use Crispix instead of Chex and use 1/2 cashews and 1/2 pecan halves. Either way it is great.

Cousin David's Slow Cooker Brisket

Reviewed: May 13, 2006
Wonderful! I hope the folks who made it earlier with incorrect ingredients will try again with the right ones. I cannot imagine anyone not liking this one. I will be making this for my son's graduation party. Using corned beef would be like using ham in a pork roast recipe. Thanks for sharing this tasty and REALLY easy recipe. Cousin David did good!

Buckeyes II

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2006
A coworker shared this recipe with me almost 20 years ago and I lost it. I am so glad to find it here! The graham crumbs give the pb filling a Reese's like texture. This recipe is so much better than the pb and confectioners sugar alone. For those who had difficulty dipping, you can purchase a dipping loop in the candy section of your craft store, it makes dipping easy.

Banana Cream Pie I

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2008
Excellent! As others before me I substituted 3 TBS of corn starch for the flour for a smoother, cleaner taste. I made a second pie using coconut and almond extract. Soupy pies are a result of not cooking the starch out of the flour-a common mistake for beginners. I would encourage you to try again with this recipe, it is worth the effort. Thanks for the excellent recipe-sooo much better than instant pudding mix!

Ham Salad Spread

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
Yummy! I'm making tea sandwiches so I pulsed the ham in the processor to make it more spreadable and skipped the egg b/c I am also making egg salad. But the base ingredients and flavors are perfect! Thanks for the simple and quick recipe.

Mango Chutney Cheese Ball

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
This cheese ball is my new favorite! I followed the recipe to a "T" except instead of the chutney, I diced two ripe mangoes and tossed with a TBS or so of melted red jalepeno jelly. I placed the cheese ball on a footed pedestal and pressed it down so it was shaped more like a disk instead of a ball, and placed the chopped mango mixture on top. I have taken this to several functions and no kidding, not a crumb left. (I now double the recipe) I do want to say to some of the others that working with curry you must let the flavors develop, so patience, trust the recipe, refrigerate overnite and enjoy. Thanks PHROGGI for an outstanding recipe.

Austrian Peach Cookie

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2010
This recipe was given to me by a dear friend years ago, with changes as follows: omit instant tea powder and cinnamon in filling. Brush cookies with oj and peach schnapps, roll cookies in dry peach jell-o. They are wonderful and do have taste with the jell-o!
