Sweet Potato Pie I

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2011
How delicious and simple! Just for time's sake I subbed out the fresh sweet potato for a large can (I mean large, it's almost the size of a new born child) of Bruce's yams in syrup, drained well you can just throw them in the mixer before the other ingredients and get them to a puree consistency. I double the vanilla and add 3/4 tsp FRESH grated nutmeg. This recipe has made my grandfather stop eating grandma's sweet potato pie, I might be in trouble! Thanks COUGAAR!

Guacamole

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2010
Even though I changed this to my tastes, the recipe has great bones. I like mine with a little more lime so I usually buy two, also I add some fresh ground sea salt, 1/2 c. sour cream AND... a half a habanero. Perfect!

Belle and Chron's Spinach and Mushroom Quiche

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2010
Fresh nutmeg makes this recipe. Other than that just make sure you're using the deep dish pie crusts or you with overflow BAD. I go to the local membership wholesaler and get the bag of pre-cooked bacon crumbles. Waaay faster and easier!

Strawberry Banana Crepes

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2010
Could it get any easier? I always loved crepes but watching street vendors make the crepes made me feel it was really daunting. When I saw this recipe I thought, "No way, this is too easy." Thankfully, I was wrong! Easy, delicious, great way to sneak fruit into something delicious that could be a breakfast or desert. Gosh, I could make it a whole meal!

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2010
Since making this all my friends have required this as their birthday cake. If you're making this, really, why not make two? A tip is that if you're going to increase the pumpkin to a full 15oz can MAKE TWO. I made the mistake of making one with the whole 15oz (as suggested by another reviewer) but I ended up with 1.5 pies, which doesn't really work out. Next time I used the 15oz of pumpkin and added one extra package of cream cheese - worked out perfectly.

Pumpkin Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2010
Wonderful, easy, the perfect thing to make your neighbors jealous in the Fall! I make this pre-Thanksgiving and give it out to my mailman, neighbors, grandparents, just about everyone. They all love it, and when I tell people with kids that there's zucchini in it? They can't believe their picky kids just ate a couple veggies without a complaints. Well, until it comes time for the last slice!

Easy Fried Eggplant

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2010
Don't get my 4 stars wrong, this was delicious and I turned on 6+ people who had been sworn enemies of eggplant previously to this recipe. HOWEVER, it loses a star for being kind of flimsy and greasy. You want a 5 star fried eggplant? Use buttermilk in place of the egg. Then mix together 1/2 c. parm cheese (out of the shaker, nothing fancy), 2 tbsp italian seasoning, 1 tsp sea salt, and 2 c. cornmeal instead of the bread crumbs. If you want a great crunch, double dip through the buttermilk and cornmeal. Try one w/the bread crumbs and one with the cornmeal and tell me I'm wrong, I dare ya!

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2010
This was AWESOME. My neighbor and her 5 kids helped me make this one and oh my gosh did we make some chili. We ended up tripling the original recipe. What I changed: subbed out the chili peppers for one habanero (GREAT idea BTW), nix the sugar, and one of the kids accidently opened 2 cans of black beans. Well, we threw them in, great for the texture as the black beans hold a little firm. Honestly, my neighbor was wary of bullion and worcestershire but it turned out perfect! This and some Southern cornbread is heaven on a 'chilly' day! I brought some in to work and coworkers think it's a family recipe, this recipe is a total hit. Oh, and if you like things spicy (I do, the kids didn't so I omitted it for their 2 pots) try using a habanero based hot sauce in addition to the tabasco and a habanero. Just make sure you can tell the spicy pot apart! ;)

Individual Baked Eggs

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
These are DELICIOUS. The only changes I made were to spray the muffin tin with Pam so it wouldn't stick instead of using the drippings (lower fat). Came out great. Unlike some other reviewers I used real bacon and cooked it, next time I'm going to use the pre cooked store bought just for ease of clean up and time. I also put the muffin tin in a water bath and ended up cooking for 25mins (no one in my house likes over easy eggs) and they came out perfectly done and moist. For the last 2-3 mins I put split english muffins on foil with a little smoked cheddar on the rack under the eggs to melt the cheese. Will def. do again, but maybe with black forest ham instead of bacon - calories :) Thanks for the recipe!

No Bake Bumpy Peanut Butter Nuggets

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2010
Making these for my diabetic great-uncle who seems to only eat sweets. I couldn't find flax seed at my local store (Sevierville, TN) so I omitted it. I took others advice and swapped out honey for the apple juice concentrate - I found that I had to use a little more honey than what was called for just for taste. I also added about 1/8 C of chopped walnuts for crunch. Point of story is he'd eat them all at once if I gave him that many. :)

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2010
Per others I changed it up a little bit. The first batch I made with the 2 c. of sugar, but as my family (and my neighbor's family) seem to like sweeter pumpkin bread next time I will use the following: 15 Oz Can Pumpkin; 4 Eggs; 1/2 Cup Veg. Oil; 1/2 Cup Applesauce (sweetened); 1 1/2 Cups White Sugar; 1 Cup Packed Brown Sugar; 3 1/2 Cups Flour; 2 Tsp. Baking Soda; 1 1/2 Tsp Salt; 1 Tsp. Cinnamon; 1 Tsp Vanilla; 1/4 Tsp Pumpkin Spice; 1 Cup Walnuts; 1/2 Cup Raisins; 1 Tsp Nutmeg; 1/2 Tsp Cloves; 1/4 Tsp Ground Ginger; Blended and cooked as described in original recipe. OK and one more comment, I used 2 bread pans (all I had) and these turned out great. What kind of dinky little loaves do you get when you make three??? My neighbor's kids would have KILLED me! ;)

Oia Greek Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2010
Per a month in Greece (Athens, Rhodes and Santorini) I'd agree with AmyLynn and nix the capers. However, I've got to say this is pretty close to what is considered a Greek salad. For dressing I juice a couple lemons and shake it with 2 tbsp EVOO, turns out great - nice and light - plus it saves you finding Greek salad dressing in the South ;)

Crab Cakes III

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2009
At first I didn't think that anyone else had problems with this dish. I had to search through all 1,000+ ratings in reverse order to see that others had my results too. The crab cake was lacking egg and cracker crumbs and ended up just falling apart. I used to make crab cakes fresh after catching/cleaning with my parents back home in WA, but now in TN I tried using pre-cleaned store bought. I don't know if it's a difference in the fresh v. frozen texture or truly the lack of egg+cracker. All I know is that right now I'm making the worst crab stir fry ever. This did NOT take on the cake form for me at all.

Tasty Collard Greens

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
Wonderful greens. The first time I've made greens and it was so easy! Having just moved to TN from OR I was getting a lot of flack about my "Yankee cooking," but now my friends are thinking twice. I bought 2 bags of frozen, chopped collards (the store's fresh bunches looked less than fresh) and subbed 2# smoked ham hocks for the turkey. Also I added about 1 tbsp each of onion powder, paprika, and cayenne pepper. I also added about 2 tbsps of butter just before serving. Will def make again SOON. Thanks!

Chinese Restaurant Almond Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2006
Haha, I had this recipe in my cupboard but tweeked it a little. I make it every year during the holidays and everyone scrambles for more - in fact my mother-in-law hides them from the kids so she can finish them herself!! What I tweeked was using almond slivers instead of whole almonds and added a light eggwash glaze before putting the almond on top. Gives a great golden colour, or I suppose you could use food colouring. Cutting in the butter (I use half butter, half butter flavoured Crisco) is a must! It keeps the center moist. I make my cookies a little bigger, so they cook for 20mins on 325*F. I also upped the sugar by 1/4c. and doubled the almond extract (trippling it gives a rich almond flavour). They come out looking a bit undone, but prick them with a toothpick and you'll see that they're well done :) Even without the eggwash, they're darn good!!
