Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2010
Oops, I forgot to add the flour but it turned out fine. The center was a bit jiggly after the 1 hour bake time but I left in the turned off oven for 2 hours and it turned out fine. A small crack developed even with the water bath method, but no biggee, the taste is what counts. Remember - Cheesecake is always better day 2, 3, or 4, if you can get it to last that long...

Ricotta Gnocchi

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2010
Lighter than potato gnocchi and more flavorful. I quadrupled this recipe (boy that was time consuming to roll and cut) and froze half. I made as stated except a little less pepper and garlic to meet my kids standards. To freeze I laid them out on single layer on parchment paper lined cookie sheet to initially freeze, then transferred to ziploc bag. This avoided them sticking together.

Hashbrown Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
A nice easy side dish. I had to alter this recipe based on ingredients on hand and personal taste. I used 1 can cr. chicken and 1 can broccoli and cheese, a full 2 cups of cheese, and only 1/2 t. of onion powder for kids sake. On top I used 3 T. of melted butter mixed w/ 1/2 sleeve of crushed ritz crackers. Will make again.

Robbi's M&M Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2010
Really good texture and taste. I used butter instead of shortening and only a pinch of salt. Addictive!

Creamy Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2010
I reduced the fat in this recipe by substituting 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce for a 1/4 cup of butter. I also used reduced fat cream cheese and skipped the nuts. I didn't have 2 loaf pans so I baked in a 13 x 9 pan for 25 minutes. Very moist.

Waffles I

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
These were good, but not great. Not sweet at all and would benefit from more sugar and/or vanilla extract. I will make again but I think the flavor needs a bit of tweaking. Folded egg whites in separate which did make for a light and crispy waffle.

Orange Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
Did not care for this recipe the flavors did not compliment each other. I marinated 24 hours and grilled instead of roasting in the oven (personal preference). I did skip the rosemary because I do not like. The first initial taste was of garlic which was fine but you ended up with an orange juice after taste, it was just plain strange tasting. Needless to say I thought the sauce was strange/gross as well.

White Chili I

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
I rate this recipe only a 3 stars as written because it would be extremely bland with just the amount of seasoning listed. I doubled the seasoning in addition to adding a minced glove of garlic. The end result was flavorful but for those with a spicy pallet I think you would be disappointed with the amount of 'heat'. Also I only added 1 cup of broth instead of 1 1/4 to make it less soupy.

PHILADELPHIA-OREO No-Bake Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
Disappointed. I didn't like the texture and it was extremely sweet. I guess this is what happens when an entire package of oreos is added. I liked the simplicity of a no-bake cheesecake but I definitely prefer the smoothness and creaminess of a baked one. Even my oreo loving kids were not thrilled.

Italian Wedding Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
AWESOME! I have tasted these cookies many times from the local Italian bakeries and I have to say these are just as good and a lot less expensive when you make them yourself. Per others I cut the chocolate topping back to 10 oz instead of 12 and that was plenty. The biggest challenge is cutting w/o cracking the chocolate. If you warm the knife under hot water is does cut through better. These cookies get better day by day as the jam soaks into the cakes. I also think if you waited a day for the cakes and chocolate to soften and then cut the sheet up it would eliminate the cracking issue. Next time I will take this approach. I chopped my almond paste in the food processer to make it easier to manage.

Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
Very tasty, especially the topping. Per others suggestions I baked the potatoes (which compliments their sweetness) in foil in the oven for 1.5 hrs at 325 degrees along side my turkey. Then I mashed, mixed with the other ingredients, and blended with my hand mixer to make them ultra smooth. The only change I made was to use only 1 egg instead of 2. Awesome - will make again.

Strawberry Sensation Smoothie

Apple Cake V

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
Awesome! I took the suggestions of others and only used 3/4 cup of oil and 1/2 cup of applesauce - this worked fine. I used a combo of granny smith and macintosh apples and added about 1 t. of cinnamon on top. I poked fork holes in the cake and added the warm glaze to the top so that some of the glaze seeped into the cake. The glaze really is what sets this cake apart from others. Good enough to serve for the holidays.

Sock it to Me Cake II

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2009
Do not bake 50 minutes, I did 40 and this was more than enough. I only added 1/4 cup of sugar to the cake mix and I felt this was plenty. The cake had a nice flavor but was dry. I opted to skip the icing recipe because I could not bring myself to add a stick of butter to an already 'fatty' cake. Instead I used 1 cup of confectionary mixed with 2T of milk and a touch of vanilla. I'm sure the recipe would be less dry with the listed icing.

The Best Meatloaf I've Ever Made

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2009
A bit on the bland side but not bad if you are not looking for an overpowering dish. My meatloaf kind of feel apart. I used crumbled italian bread and probably would of had a denser meatloaf if I used a denser breadcrumb such as a country style bread or dinner roll. I will try it this way next time to see if I am more successful. Also, don't add any milk, it will work against you.

Cottage Cheese Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2009
I took the easy way again and used diced Perdue shortcuts chicken (I love the ease of this stuff). I mixed with the sauted onions and chili peppers as the recipe stated. I would say NOT to add salt to the cottage cheese mixture because anything made with taco seasoning is always going to be extra salty. I used flour tortillas in error but they were fine also. I only managed to get 6 large enchiladas with this amount of stuffing. Will make again.
