Bread Bowls

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2007
Made more than 100 of these for a convention... absolutely the talk of the convention! Make sure you press the bread to the walls of the bowl, as it will make sure that you spring "no leaks" when putting in the hot liquid. I made sure that I baked them a 2nd time after digging out excess bread and pressing the balance to the bowl. Bake for about 10 minutes. If you are using a commercial convection oven, cut back on the baking temperature to 300. If using a regular oven, use what is stated for the temperature.

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2013
Excellent cake for a basis to put your own spin on it...did not fall in the middle like some reported, but that is because someone usually over-beats the cake batter. Put it in a 13x9 pan and it baked beautifully in 40 minutes...When making cakes with lots of spice, I usually split the sugar between white and light brown...gives the cake depths of flavor...usually, I add more vanilla (homemade, of course), cinnamon, allspice, ground cloves, and nutmeg to put it over the top. As a professional private caterer, I must make sure that the majority of people who eat my food are satisfied...This cake will do that! Baking IS a science...but the flavors are up to the individual.

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
I served this at an annual Christmas Dinner for a ministerial association and it was a hit! Since I was making it in a large quantity (every pan served 25 people), I decided to bake it @ 425 degrees to not get those black ends on the veggies when the temperature is too high. It took 2 hours and the root veggies were still not perfectly done. I ended up microwaving them for 5 minutes to soften the potatoes...it worked! I must say that this is the best way to cook veggies for a crowd and still maintain your reputation as a great chef...there was not a potato or veggie left in the pans. I did roast the root veggies for about an hour before I added the peppers, etc. Thanks for a great recipe.

Orange Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2012
One of the pastors at my church called me and said he was thinking of the Orange Cake I brought to Bible study Sunday evening...he said it was better than the real whipped cream that I make that he absolutely adores...so I have one cooling on my counter for him...LOL I grated one Cutie tangerine peel into the cake mix, as well as used orange, instead of lemon, extract...Also, the cake mix had pudding in it, so I added 1 package of white chocolate pudding mix...that made me think I may need a little more orange juice and I used 1 1/3 cups orange juice in the cake mix. It was perfect!!!! OH! I also sprayed my bundt cake pan and took white cane sugar and dusted the whole pan with it before I put in the cake mix...it gives such a nice little crunch in the mouth when you bite down on the cake...lovely texture! Poured part of the hot orange juice mixture over the cake before I removed it from the pan and 10 minutes later, I poured the remaining sauce over the whole cake as it cooled on the rack...Perfect cake for a cake mix...I am a scratch baker, but will come back to this for a quick, easy charming cake. ********** 10 stars!

Cajun Appetizer Meatballs

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2009
I had an event a couple of days ago I was catering for with attendance of over one hundred people... made 15 pounds of ground round into meatballs and not one was available for me to eat! Everyone told me they were the best meatballs they had put into their mouths EVER!!! So, today I went back to my butcher and got three pounds of ground round again to make me my own batch! According to over 100 people I served, I am the best meatball maker on the planet! Love it! ...and it is all due to this recipe!

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
This is the only way I will ever fix broccoli again...I also added carrots, thyme, and purchased the fresh broccoli pieces in the big bag @ the warehouse club...I steamed the veggies and then added the hot marinade with the cashews...thanks, you made me look like I was really spectacular in the kitchen...

Snicky Snackies

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2010
Very disappointing...the caramel was okay, but was not that great for a dish...I was embarrassed that it did not turn out, as I made it for a customer...too expensive to take a chance again.

Key Lime Pie VIII

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2010
My family does not like key lime pie, but they absolutely love this recipe. Instead of vanilla pudding, I subbed white chocolate pudding...will always use the white chocolate pudding every time I make it again! I used homemade sweetened condensed milk (equal parts of sugar and evaporated milk + a splash of vanilla) and fresh limes...I froze it for about 3 hours and served it with real whipped cream that was whipped with a splash of vanilla and a couple of handfuls of 10X sugar. Excellent, excellent pie!

French Breakfast Puffs

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2012
These made 15 cinnamon puffs and they were gone before they were all dipped and rolled...Have to make more...It took a complete stick of butter, not just the 6 Tablespoons, as stated...of course, I did not put them in papers, but greased the muffin tins well enough to get the puffs to 'fall' out...I dipped the whole puff in butter and rolled it in the cinnamon/sugar mixture...that's the way to do it! Fabulous! Fabulous!

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2011
I quadrupled the recipe to have enough left over to save for another time...took the advice of others who said it was possibly 'too salty' and reduced the sea salt by 1 teaspoon and did not put black pepper in it (in case it was too hot from the red pepper flakes), adding a couple of dashes at the end...IT WAS PERFECT! I am definitely shouting that out so all can hear (see)...Fabulous recipe and done in less than a minute if you have all your spices organized in the cabinet :) The meal has been eaten and now the balance has been stored in a jar in the cabinet. Thanks for something as simple and delicious as this...did not add flour to the meat as someone suggested...no extra gluten was needed.

Blueberry Brie

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2009
This was served at a business Open House 25th Anniversary and was the biggest hit! There was no time to put it in an oven (as there was not one on the premises), so I put it for three (3) minutes in their microwave until the Brie was soft...served it on a cake stand with pretzel chips...beautiful, excellent taste, and colorful. Thanks for the recipe!

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2007
Passable, not that great. I am a professional caterer and tried these for a huge event. Thank goodness I used two different recipes, as my own potato yeast rolls were much better in performance and taste. These seemed to be a step above a first year student's rolls. Not impressed at all and will not use again. Sorry for the low rating, but I want something upon which I can depend as my reputation and livelihood hangs on how my food looks and tastes.

Blueberry Lemon Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
When I made this, I doubled everything to make 2 loaves (same amount of work for twice the enjoyment)...what I did differently was to add the lemon juice to my slightly soured milk (had to use it before it was too sour). I let the milk sit and clabber...and it became more like buttermilk. Also, I did not melt the butter because melted butter will not cream with the sugar. Creaming the butter is the essential building block to baking; adding the sugar and beating for 10 minutes or so until fluffy is what determines the crumb of your baked item...I am a caterer/chef and unless I were making a muffin recipe, I would not melt the butter prior to creaming. I also put in 2 Tablespoons more of my juiced lemon to the doubled mix. On one of the breads, I sprinkled raw (turbinado) sugar before I put it in the oven...gave it a 'bakery appearance'. The second loaf had the glaze put on it...both were excellent. I substituted frozen lemonade concentrate for the glaze...excellent! Another thing I did was combine 1 part flour to 1 part confectioner's sugar (powdered sugar) in a separate bowl to roll the frozen blueberries in...they stayed afloat in the bread with no issues.

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2009
The dressing can stand on its own merits...use it on any salad you make...we used it for a state-wide convention using canned mandarin oranges, instead of the strawberries, due to the time of year...could not keep up with the requests for seconds! Thanks so much for a great recipe!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2012
Very disappointed with this...will not make again...very sorry I doubled the recipe, but I was making them for a large group...very, very disappointed......it left an aftertaste in the mouth...Thank goodness I had a fabulous icing recipe to overcome what this cookie lacked.

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
I used this tonight as one of the two meats for a party of 18...personally, I thought it was not moist enough, but everyone else thought it was the best thing they ever put in their mouth. I added fresh spinach (the big plastic container size that is purchased @ Sam's Club)...thyme, garlic, salt and pepper...used 1/2 sour cream / 1/2 mayo...all I can say is it gave me a good reputation again for being a cook with fabulous recipes.
