Strawberry Pie II

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2010
Really fabulous! Since I had strawberry jam already made I used that instead of the simple syrup & while it worked pretty well, I didn't add the full amount of cornstarch so it didn't set up completely. That's alright. The beauty of this pie is the contrast between the sweetened glaze & the natural tartness of the fresh berries. Thanks so much for sharing. :o)

Anne's Homemade Chorizo

Reviewed: May 4, 2010
This is really good chorizo! The key is to let it "cure" for 3 days in the fridge. This is only my second attempt at making my own sausage & because it was an absolute success, I'll be branching out & trying some other recipes. Thanks very much for sharing! :o)

Banana Bread Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2010
Man oh man, oh MAN!:o) These are excellent! We've been dipping the cookies in the glaze which is a bad thing to be doing, bad Cheep! Thankfully I made them for my bro so they're outta the house tomorrow. Maybe. Well, really how much do I love the guy anyway? He can have half the batch & I expect a lot of genuflecting for it too. Thanks so much for this one! :o) :o)o)

Sweet and Savory Kale

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2010
WHOA! This was seriously sweet! I scaled it back to 3 servings & didn't think the amount of sugar called for was excessive but my dried cranberries added quite a bit of sweetness along with cooking down the cider vinegar which added another level of sweetness that wasn't needed at all. I actually think one could skip the sugar altogether. Thanks, though. :o)

Cranberry Upside-Down Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
This is a beautiful cake. I love, love, LOVE the cranberry/pecan caramel topping & wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. I had to use dried whole cranberries that I rehydrated to plump them up a bit & bourbon praline pecans. The result was still addicting & I can't wait to try it again with fresh cranberries when they're in season. I didn't use the actual cake part of the recipe but certainly will next time. Thanks for a new take on an old favorite. :o)

Baked Kale Chips

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2010
Who is a clever girl? LucyDelRey that's who! These were fabulous! Thanks to the other reviewer's suggestions on cooking time & oven temp, mine turned out just right. This is the perfect way to get your crunch on without any guilt at all. Applause, applause! :o)

Christmas Strawberry Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
My experience with this recipe wasn't good. The amount of oil seems excessive to me & my 2 mini loaves actually deep fried in the oven while the middle was raw & they baked for nearly 2hrs! Very,very greasy, I didn't taste any strawberry at all & I can't recommend this one. Sorry:(

Angel Food Cake III

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
I used Eggbeaters boxed egg whites so I didn't need to worry about what to do with 12 yolks & that was helpful. I only had a silicone bundt pan to use & the cake stuck but it rose nicely, had a nice texture &.....I hated it. It was so sweet it gave me a headache. I don't think it's the recipe at all, just my personal taste. Thanks for sharing it:o)

Green Chile Cheese Beer Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
This was a VERY good quick bread. Thanks to Scottdog for reviewing it on the forum & posting such a yummy pic on AR! I admit that it was pretty wet & the two smaller loaves that I made had to be turned over so the bottoms wouldn’t overbrown & the middles could finish cooking. You can do one of two things to avoid this. Either use less beer or chop your own chiles. Pre-chopped chiles have liquid that is difficult to drain entirely. Thanks for posting this one:o)

Banana Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2009
This recipe is fabulous & I've lost track of how many times I've made it. You simply can't mess it up, no matter what you add or in what form you bake it. I've made muffins, loaves, & cakes. I've added carrots, apples, raisins, nuts, pineapple & flaxseed in various combinations & this recipe still works to perfection. My dog even likes it so much that I make mini muffins without the sugar for her! Very healthy, very flexible, & very much loved at my house. Thanks so much for a great recipe:o)

Cajun Crawfish and Shrimp Etouffe

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
Very good recipe although I find that the roux works best with equal amounts of oil & flour. That eliminates the excess oil that some people had issues with. Also, forget peeling crawfish! ARG! I'll buy the tails already peeled next time. I don't know why this recipe is described as tomato based when there's barely any in it but despite that, I liked it well enough. Thanks for sharing it:o)

Mary Anne's Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
This was a delicious carrot cake but I don't understand why the word "nutty" is in the description since there are no nuts in it. I'm sure you could add them, though. I think it calls for too much sugar especially with the pineapple so I reduced the amount to half. Plenty sweet enough. Thanks for a great recipe:o)

Pineapple Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2009
This is awesome bread! You wouldn't really expect canned pineapple to add much in the way of flavor but it really did & without overpowering the banana. I only had Egg Beaters so that's what I used & it made the bread a little "bouncy" but even so, I'll be making this for years to come. (Sorry G'ma D.):o)

All-Day Apple Butter

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
I am so happy with myself right now! I made apple butter! I've never even made jelly before! HAPPY DANCE! This turned out so delicious. I cut the sugar down to 2 cups & used 3.5 lbs. of Fuji apples. Absolutely fabulous! No pic cuz let's not lie, this stuff is brown & not particularly photogenic. And I'm lazy today:o):o) Thanks so much for sharing!

Grilled Tequila-Lime Shrimp

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2009
This was alright. You can't marinate it for very long at all or the shrimp will "cook" in the lime/tequila, so those flavors were very subtle. That's OK, it's shrimp & tequila. How can that be bad?:o)

Dash's Donair

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
The meat turned out just right. Dense & easy to thinly slice. I wish I’d use a little less oregano as it tasted a bit too strong for me. The sauce was…um…er….unique! Yeah let’s go with that. Extremely unique:o) And there was a heckuva lot of it. A HECK of a lot. Since there’s no chance of me aquiring a taste for it, I didn’t keep it. Thanks for sharing:o)

Savory Cheddar Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2008
I'm a big fan of quick breads since yeast scares the heck outta me so I liked this recipe:o) Little bland but that's easily fixed by adding herbs of your choice & using a very sharp cheddar or even a different cheese such as pepper-jack. Good stuff:o)

Garlicky Mushroom Toast Cups

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2008
I thought these were lovely. I made a miniature version & added fresh thyme & garlic chives, topped with some flash-fried Black Forest ham strips & drizzled with truffle oil. You can make these as fancy or as home-style as you like, whatever fits the occasion. Thanks for sharing your recipe:o)

Fresh Cherry Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2008
Man, I messed this up six ways to Sunday. The cherries were Bing & were huge & I used too many. The batter didn't rise but turned out more like a butter toffee candy bar intersected by semi-deflated cherries the size of plums. My bad. Am I eating it? Uh, hell yeah! Even made incorrectly, it still tastes awesome:o)

No-Mayonnaise Ranch Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2008
This turned out pretty darn good, considering it's low fat. I'm still undecided about the addition of dried parsley, though. Definitely tastes better after it sits for a day but next time I'll try it without the parsley:o)
