Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
Have used this recipe faithfully for 2 years now. Is always a big hit with everyone! Kids don't like raisins though so I substituted for lightly cinn/sugared apple slices. Yum!!

Baked Potato Soup V

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
great soup base! Have made this as directed and it was good. Second time I did my own thing. For us there wasn't really enough for how many we had to feed so I used 7 cups of milk and another 4 cups of chicken broth! I also added some cooked ham & my signature Filet Mignon broiled & cut into pieces into the soup :) Celery or corn would also go great in this! I loved that it was pretty basic so I could add my own seasoning preferences! (we love garlic and really herby things so I went all out) And for future reference, green onions are chives in most countries :D And they were tasty!

Holiday Cranberry Chutney

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
I LOVE this recipe!! Family and I have to take it easy on the sugar, so i put a lot less, maybe 3/4 a cup, and it was still SO DELICIOUS!! My mother & sister watched me make this and voiced their doubts, but it barely made it past dinner time! Everyone LOVED it, glad I made a big batch! Making it again this year, even the kids are asking for it! Thank you so much!

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
I always hated green bean casserole, I disliked the cream of mushroom and it always seemed bland to me. I found this recipe and was quite thrilled! Made exactly as shown, not a big fan of onions so I just saute'd them first to make sure they would be well cooked. Came out great and everyone says they prefer it over the 'old skool' version! thank you Grandma!

Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: May 18, 2012
To avoid getting crumbly, or weird little balls to form, leave the milk out till it is room temperature. It does that because the cold milk solidifies the melted butter.

Chocolate Cavity Maker Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2012
I hate to say this, but I did make some changes. We did not have the coffee liquore so I used strong black coffee, used applesauce instead of oil, and I broke up a bar of milk chocolate instead of using chips since we didnt have those either. This came out AMAZING! I'm not a fan of chocolate but I made it for my mother in law. However, none of us can stop eating it!!! SO good!

Salt and Vinegar Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2008
I LOVE this recipe!!! I follow the directions exactly and it came out perfect! I also tried it another way, whereas I did everything as per the recipes directions but I also sprinkled italian seasoning on it. I usually cook it covered for the allotted time, then remove tinfoil, remove extra juice and put it under the broiler, sprinkle it with Tony Chacher's Creole Seasoning or Montreal seasoning and let it sit under the broiler till it's golden and crispy. It is DELICIOUS! I make this all the time and everyone loves it! My 8 year old says its her favorite dish! Goes great served with saffron rice. and if done right, you can use the marinade to make a gravy, needs to be diluted with chicken broth though :)

Amy's Cilantro Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2012
I'm not even a fan of cilantro, or mexican food, but I can not stop eating this stuff! My family demands I make it often because they love it as well. Not sure why everyone has such issues with how much a "bunch" is. EVERY store I have ever been to sells greens (collard greens, parsley, cilantro, etc) in a clearly defined and sectioned off BUNCHES. Doesn't get much easier? I always let my cheese and cream to come to room temperature before mixing to avoid lumpiness. Works great with lime chips & fresh veggies

Butter Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
was a good base. But even with caramelizing the onions and roasting the spices, it was quite bland. Tried again using chicken broth, tomato paste and some diced tomatoes. Ended up doing more on the spices, also adding coriander and cayenne. Made rice using thai coconut curry broth, was very good! thank you

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2012
Was pretty good. Had to add more buttermilk while mixing to get more than crumbles but I'm at a very high elevation. It wasen't quite as good as the local irish pub but I'll keep trying!

Oven Barbecued Beef Brisket I

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
I did make two adjustments after reading reviews and my own personal experience with red meat. I did not salt before cooking, that usually draws out the moisture. Secondly, I used one cup beer instead of water. Was very good for my first brisket! Was a bit dry but very tender. Will try not slicing it next time around until right before serving to see if that helps! Usually best to wait 5-10 minutes after taking from oven to slice for max. juiciness. Family loved it, no left overs!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2011
I followed the recipe EXACTLY. And ended up with what appeared to be cookie dough, not muffin batter. I had to add more milk, oil and another egg to even get it remotely pourable. Did it at 350 for 18 minutes and still burnt the edges a bit :( will be trying a different recipe next time. What didn't burn was edible though. Kid liked it.. not sure I want to present it to the hubby though

Easy Pumpkin Turnovers

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2011
I did this as the recipe stated, except doubled. It had a weird taste :( I cooked the pumpkin & spices, it gets rid of the weird texture and taste for the canned stuff. I added creamcheese and some more pumpkin. It helped a lot! I did an egg bath and sprinkled with raw coarse sugar on top before baking. Came out good with my changes, I'd give mine a 4 but as was i'll stick with 3 for this recipe

Crispy Orange Beef

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2013
I had to tweak this recipe a lot for it to be great. But, rating it as is; 2 stars. It was DEFINITELY way too sweet. Was not spicy at all which it said it would be. Beef was not crunchy either. Made it again using orange juice & orange marmalade, cut the sugar in half, used 1 tsp of ginger, doubled everything else, as well as added a tablespoon of asian garlic chili paste. Was much better the second time around! Would be a 4 star recipe with my adjustments
