Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2013
I always thought that Key Lime Pie would be hard to make, but this was so easy to make and I loved it. I have made about 12 so far and everyone said they like it, so far. One lady said her husband wanted to eat the whole thing and only left her a small slice. I am so happy I found this recipe, as I live very close to the keys and I see that the store has these key limes for months now. Happy that I found fresh key limes every time. The last time I made it I wasn't home, so the grater that I was using made the zest too large and when you bit into it in the pie, it was too large of a piece of zest, so I would suggest that your grater makes really tiny bits of zest. Tastes better that way. One time I accidentally used the entire two cans of sweetened condensed milk, and that was just 4 ounces more than the recipe called for. It still tasted good, but a little milky, so don't make that mistake I made. Also, one time, I bought the large pie crust at the store, and the pie didn't fill it well, so don't do that either. Buy the smaller pie crust. Also, use real key limes and nothing else. This is important for this pie. Thank you for this recipe!!!

Best Ever Popcorn Balls

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2011
I just wanted some sweet popcorn, as I am a popcorn fanatic. I did have the confectioners sugar on hand, but not the corn syrup or marshmallows. I used butter and not margarine. It turned out tasty. I used three bowls to combine the mixture with the popcorn. I wish I would have read the reviews first, because I would have added the vanilla flavoring. Be careful, the mixture is hot and will burn your fingers. I did add salt after the corn was popped. I would suggest that you don't use microwave popcorn, but make the popcorn from scratch on the stove.

Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2006
This is a great recipe. My meringue was watery, so the next time I made it, I pulled a "No Fail Meringue" recipe from All Recipes, which added cornstarch to it, and the meringue turned out just fine. I pulled a pie crust recipe for the pie crust from All Recipes and it turn out fine. I have made it now 3 times, and it's so good, and reminds me of the old days when the lunch counters served lemon meringue pie. And reminds me of my mom who used to work at those lunch counters. Thank you!!

Puerto Rican Tostones (Fried Plantains)

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2006
These tostones were so good!! The step about dipping in water is good to do because it makes them more crispier. I only bought one plantain at the store. Now I need to go buy more!! Yummy!!

Chicken Dijon

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2006
This was so good. The other raters said that the sauce may be too thick, so I added more chicken broth. I also didn't put as much dijon, because I didn't want the flavor to be too strong. I made fresh mushrooms with garlic in butter and added this to the sauce. I served this with thin spaghetti. Ummm yum yum.

The Best Chicken Soup Ever

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2005
This was so good. I added a potato and a can of corn. I didn't cook it as long as it said because then everything would be too mushy. I didn't have all the ingredients, like the package of chicken soup mix, but this still turned out really good. And I had some fresh green beans so I added those, too. Really yummy.
