Cream Cheese Pound Cake III

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2015
I made this exactly as the recipe called for except I used two teaspoons vanilla and cake flour. It's the first pound cake I have ever made, so I wanted to stick as close to the recipe as possible. OMStars! It's wonderful! It's not as heavy as some pound cakes, probably because of the cake flour, but it developed that wonderfully, sugary crust that is so good. Next time, I will try to add some lemon or coconut extract to see how we like those flavor a. Thanks for the recipe!

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2015
Wonderful!!! I only had one block of cream cheese, but it worked without the other one. I used it on a chocolate fudge cake. It had just the right amount of tangy sweetness. I won't ever buy frosting again!

Special Lobster Bisque

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2014
I made this tonight and my family licked the pot clean! Yummy! I did make a few changes, based on what I had and other suggestions in reviews. I had surimi in the fridge, so I used that instead of lobster. I added a few dashes of hot sauce, a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce, replaced the onion with onion powder, and added just enough red wine vinegar at the end to add a little bite (white wine or sherry would probably be better for this, but I didn't have any and the vinegar worked well). This was a huge hit! It will go into my rotation, for sure!

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2014
Wonderful and so easy! I did bake it a little longer and it set up a little more firmly. It is tart, for sure, but I love that! Make sure you serve with a good whipped cream. I will make this again!

Corn Casserole III

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2014
Huge hit! The only thing I did different was add a little heavy cream to make it a touch creamier and I used a bag of frozen kernel corn. Everyone loved it! I will be making this again!

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2014
I used this recipe and loved it! I made just a few changes. Instead of using all milk, I used half milk, half heavy cream. And, I didn't have cheddar cheese, so I used an Italian cheese blend. All I can say about it is yummy! I can imagine that's good sharp cheddar would be wonderful in this, whereas the Italian blend was a little more subtle. I might try that one time, but the Italian blend was so good, I might just stay with that.

A Very Popular BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2012
Yummy! I cut the recipe in half and didn't have any paprika, but it is wonderful without it. I can't imagine how good it will be with it. I didn't add any salt, either, since we're on a salt-restrictive diet.

Country Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2012
Yummy! I halved the recipe, just so we could try them and boy am i regretting that now! Being diabetic, I used Splenda instead of sugar.The only other changes was adding a splash of vanilla. We will definitely be making this again!

Cheater Pot Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2012
Yummy! Only had one can of cream of chicken, so we replaced one with a can of cream of mushroom. Liked it so much, we'll keep it that way. Used pre-cooked chicken strips and threw in just a bit of garlic powder and some extra canned corn, to suit our taste. We will definitely be eating this one again!

Black Bean and Chickpea Hummus

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
Ok, I'll admit this was fabulous, but I made a lot of changes, based on what I had in the pantry. I used a large can of black beans no garbanzo beans and substituted sour cream for the yogurt. Then, I only used a sprinkle of curry powder and added some cumin. After sitting in the fridge all night, the flavors had blended together beautifully. Yes, it's a funny color but with some pita chips it was yummy. Definitely a keeper!

My Country Style Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2011
Yummy! The only thing I did different was to slice an onion into the skillet before I started to simmer and add a little milk and cornstarch to the gravy after about 30 minutes. The non-meat eating daughter loved it. We had it with roasted veggies and yukon gold mashed potatoes! This is definitely a keeper!

Busy Night Turkey Taco Soup with Avocado Cream

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
Very good soup but I did make some changes to give it more flavor and to use what I had and it turned out great. I boiled some chicken breast strips and shredded them. I then made the soup adding a pack of taco seasoning. At the end, I added a splash of milk to thicken it. I served it with shredded cheese and some crumbled tortilla chips. YUMMY! Even the picky kids ate seconds and complimented me on it. Quick and easy!

Lemony Garlic Shrimp with Pasta

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
Great recipe but I will use less lemon juice next time. The kids loved it but commented that it needed less lemon. We'll definitely be making this one again.
