Double Layer Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
I had printed out this recipe & my husband found this exact recipe in a cooking magazine I had and asked me to make it. The pumpkin topping was a bit runny. This pie got lost in all of the pies we made and wasn't the best. Thanks for letting me try something different for our holiday table.

Kentucky Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
This had a beautiful presentation! I think it was the prettiest pecan pie I have ever made. And it tasted great! I did add a tablespoon of brandy to it. Thanks!

Irresistible Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
With all the sugars in this pie, just looking at it could make you a diabetic! I am glad I only make these pies once a year! With that said, it was a very, very, very good pecan pie. One of the best I have had/made. 5 stars. PS Used my own crust, did not use crust recipe.

Seven Layer Gelatin Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
Update: I really liked the taste of this, it was even better the 2nd and 3rd day as a leftover! Next time I will use less layers, and more red jellos (ie strawberry, raspberry, cherry) because I liked those the best in this, and they look the prettiest, IMO. Original review: This is very time consuming. I tried to hurry the process and merged the last 3 layers into one large one. Made in a trifle bowl to show the colors. Will update on taste...

Blue Cheese Dip II

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
Update: I have made this dip almost every holiday for my FIL, Father's Day also of course! This recipe has become one of my 'go to' recipes. This time I modified a bit. Couldn't get to the store so I used 1/2 a bottle of blue cheese dressing in lieu of the chucks and I didn't add the mayo. Turned out really good! Original review: I love blue cheese, and so does my FIL. I made this for him for tomorrow for an appetizer. I tasted-tested it and I thought it was really good! I am serving with blue corn chips. Did not add the green onions, subbed a pinch of onion pwdr. Sprinkled with garlic bread seasoning instead of garlic salt.

Thanksgiving Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
This was so delicious! I made it for tomorrow but my husband got into it. He is not a bread eater so for him to say it was good is quite a compliment! I made a few changes: 1/4 c. oil, 1/4 c. milk, added overipe bananas to the mix, and used only 1 egg. Used 1/2 c. pumpkin. We really liked the taste of the cranberries in this!

Saltine Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
I thought these were very unique, but I don't think my family liked them! They were polite but I caught 'the look' (as in 'what did she made now??'). I loved the ease of making these! I didn't spread the chocolate chips but left them whole.

Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2007
Wow! The sauce for these was AWESOME!!! I cheated a little and used pre-breaded frozen fish. I also traded some of the cayenne pepper for Old Bay seasoning, and I used a lemon instead of a lime. Oh, and I used sour cream instead of plain yogurt. But I loved these! They were soooooo good! I wanted to try them with the actual fish recipe next! Yum, yum, yum!

New England Dinner

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2007
I liked this one-pot dinner---starch, veggie, & meat all in one. However, it was very, very bland...even sprinkled liberally with my husband's spice mixture! Basic salt & pepper also helped alot! But that being said, it is one of those dishes that can easily be customized to taste, spices, ingredients. I subbed sliced carrots for the cabbage because I didn't want to run to the store & had carrots on hand. I will make this again with cabbage. (I know, I know, change a major ingred. in the recipe and still rate it...as is it is probably a 3 star recipe but I bumped it to 4 because of my subsitition). PS Also added more water than called for (about a cup more)and I cooked on 350 for about an hour. I added the sausage in the last 30 min. so that it wouldn't be too dry or burn.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
Taste update: Very, very good! This rivals my hubby's cheesecake (: Original review: This was an ok recipe, but I followed the instructions & it still cracked badly on top. I did trade 1/4 cup of the milk for coffee, and I topped with mocha chocolate chip cookie crumbies (thanks, Amy!). Will update on taste and probably bump up a star. Having this for my niece's bday get together tomorrow.

Austrian Pancake

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2007
I liked this but my family did not. Sprinkled with pwrd sugar instead of serving with syrup (post pic). Also, baked on a pizza stone instead of a cast iron skillet.

Jewish Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2007
This is a staple for me, I have made this soup many times! (I have yet to make the matzo balls, I have my own recipe for dumplings & make mine differently.) But the method & and ingred. for the broth are perfection---really warms you up on a cold Autumn day! Thanks so much for posting this recipe!

Pumpkin Funnel Cakes

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2007
Wow, Linda, these are AWESOME!!!! My hubby loved them !(and for him to like a bread based dessert is just this side short of a mircale!) It did take a little practice to squirt the cake batter across the oil (I used a plastic zip lock with the corner cut on one end). I burned the first cake, but the 2nd and 3rd ones were perfect! We dusted with lots of pwrd sugar & I shared with my in-laws. Thanks!!!! See posted pics (: (: (: (: (:

Italian Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2007
My 8 year old loved these! Thanks for the new twist on grilled cheese! PS Make mine on the griddle instead of in the oven. I even added a little Parmesan cheese to mine and it was delish (:

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2007
This recipe is hard for me to rate. My husband did not like it. I thought it was very good, wonderful flavor, and I loved the ease of preparation (very gourmet taste but simple ingred. & super easy to put together!). I probably won't make it again since I would be the only one eating it, but thanks for letting me try something different! PS Followed Shannon(:'s advice and used celery seed instead of celery salt, the only change I made to this recipe.

Dog Treats II

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2007
My 8year old wanted to make puppy treats this morning and he picked out this recipe. I made lots of changes, the main one being that I realized I was out of oatmeal and so I chopped up some hotdogs and added them to the dough. Also, I think the liquid is off in this recipe...I ended up adding a little milk to make the dough come together. Didn't add the sugar on top as our dogs are kind of chunky and don't need the extra calories, LOL!

Strawnana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2007
This bread was good but I am not sure if it was great. I am still trying to decide if I like it! The flavors are really complex---strawberries, bananas, spice, orange zest. I used my sugar coated pecans instead of walnuts (I still have alot of those left, LOL). I guess the flavor that stands out most to me is the strawberries. And I am still undecided if I like warm strawberries...thanks for letting me try something different and helping me get rid of my over-ripe bananas, strawberries and those darned sugar coated pecan pieces!!! I am taking to school tomorrow and leaving in the workroom and I am sure it will get eaten! (: (: (:

Sugar Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2007
My husband was supposed to get me pecan halves and he came back from the store with pieces. I used them anyway and added them to the chocolate scotcheroos I was making. I still have alot leftover so I froze some and gave some to my FIL (who really liked them). Next time I will try with the pecan halves (though pecans are REALLY expensive---8 dollars for a lb. bag. I miss where I used to live---we could go out and pick them up for free, except them I had to crack and hull them, lots of work, LOL) Thanks so much for the post!

Chocolate Scotcheroos

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2007
I love this recipe! Have made several times. I have made changes based on my lazy cooking ethics: I melt the chips & added the syrup & sugar (all in one pan). I wait for this to boil, then add the peanut butter, take off the heat & add the cereal. I also added pecans this time around (1 cup of sugar coated pecan pieces, recipe from this site), and used only 5 cups of cereal. Reduced sugar to 1/2 a cup also. Love, love, love this recipe! Thanks so much for the post! PS Made this time around for a teacher luncheon. Really well-received & easy to transport!
