Caramel Pie II

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2006
I make this pie all the time and everyone loves it! I use the fat free sweetened condensed milk and it tastes just as good! I also allow my cans to cool for 40 minutes on one side, then flip over for another 40 minutes. If not, there is a build-up of pressure and it's a pain to open the cans. I let the pie cool in the fridge for at least 8 hours, otherwise the caramel is not sweet. Be sure to add the cool whip after it has cooled b/c it will melt if the pie is still warm. I also garnish with mini chocolate chips.

Chocolate Cherry Cake with Rum Ganache

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2011
I thought this was a really good cake and that was before any topping. I Love chocolate and cherry together! Since I was unable to taste the full size cake, I made myself a cupcake size... the cake was fluffier that I expected. Changes - I folded in the cherries with the chocolate chips. I also used the Satiny Chocolate Glaze recipe on this site (replacing vanilla w/ 1 tsp rum extract) instead of the ganache simply b/c I knew it would dry semi-hard and I needed that for wrapping it up for travel. I would love to try the ganache next time. Will make again!

Satiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2010
This is an great chocolate glaze for Bundt cakes. For consistency, I give it 5 stars, but for taste I would give it 4 starts. It's good, but I like it really sweet. The glaze is great because it's not so thin that it all runs off the cake. It's thick enough to form it the way you like. It's also dries semi-hard and keeps a nice gloss.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2007
These were yummy! I inserted toothpicks in the strawberries and used a wooden spoon to either coat the strawberries in chocolate or roll the strawberry in the chocolate. When I tried dipping them while the chocolate was in the double boiler, the steam kept burning me and the strawberries kept falling off. It was much easier the other way. =)

Donut Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
I thought these were pretty good, especially the outside coating. I wasn't a huge fan of the nutmeg inside. I may would try cinnamon and vanilla flavoring next time. I didn't have mini muffin pans, so I made 11 of them in a mini fluted Bundt pan tin. They had the hole in the center and looked like real donuts! Very cute. Update - After eating a few of these, I discovered the that ones that soaked in butter the longest (getting ready for the sugar coating) were by far the best tasting ones!

Chocolate Waffles I

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2010
These were okay. I LOVE regular chocolate chip waffles, so I was hoping for more. I also added chocolate chips to mine.

Kitty Kat Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2010
These don't taste like Kit Kats, but are still very good if you like butterscotch! I also used Keebler Club crackers as others suggested and crunchy PB that I had on hand. I put them in the fridge for an hour to cool before cutting, but the chocolate was still too soft. I then put them in the freezer for about 45 minutes - much easier to cut in to. My only problem was that the gooey part seeped below the bottom cracker layer, which caused them to be sticky on the bottom when stacking. I was hoping for a nice cracker bottom.... oh well, still delicious! I would probably rename these as Butterscotch Bars in my recipe book.

French Toast Waffles

Reviewed: May 29, 2010
These waffles were average. I love both French toast and waffles, but I guess not together. They weren't bad, but I probably wouldn't make them again. The batter made two full size waffles with barely any left.

Amaretto Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
This cake is AWESOME! My family pretty much devoured this cake in a day. The inside is so moist and delicious. The only change I made was to double the almond extract. I had planned on making an additional glaze for the top, but it is so good on its own, there's really no need! It is so quick and easy to make since the base is a box cake mix. The soaked in Amaretto is definitely the key to this cake! Update - I have made a similar version of this cake twice in the past week for friends' b-days. I substituted chocolate cake mix (regular and devil's food), chocolate pudding, vanilla extract, and Kahlua. They both turned out so good! I would suggest doubling the extract and adding a bit more Kahlua (no more than extra 1/4 cup) for more flavor. My friends loved it! Such a great recipe and very versatile!!

Chocolate Mousse Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2008
This pie was very good! I used some 1 tsp amaretto in place of 1 tsp of the water (in the chocolate mixture) for an extra almond flavor. I also made a homemade Oreo crust to go with it.

Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
This pie was delicious!! I left out the bourbon since I made it for a church function. I also followed other reviewers' suggestion and added 2-3 oz chocolate chips as a bottom layer instead of inside the batter. It fit perfectly in a deep dish pie plate and baked beautifully on the 2nd to lowest rack without burning the top or bottom. Next time, I will make a homemade crust using the "Irresistible Pecan Pie" recipe since it is better than the frozen type. Can't wait to make again and try the bourbon version!

Irresistible Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
This pie was delicious and I'm just starting to like pecans. As others suggested, I added 1.5 tsp vanilla and 1 Tbsp flour to the batter. I baked in a deep dish pie plate on the 2nd to lowest shelf, but had to cover with foil in the last 10-15 minutes to avoid burning the top. Next time, I plan to bake at 325 instead of 350. I baked a chocolate pecan pie at 325 the same night and it came out perfect without having to cover it.

Bada Bing Bada Banged Potatoes

Reviewed: May 13, 2011
My family loved this recipe! I made as directed, except I forgot thyme leaves. Next time I plan to cut the red pepper flakes to 1/2 tsp. The potatoes weren't spicy unless you bit into a piece that had a ton of seasoning on it... then it would set your mouth/esophagus on fire. These smell so delicious when baking as well! I also made about 4 lbs... still a TON of potatoes!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough + Cupcake = The BEST Cupcake. Ever.

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
I thought these were okay... nothing spectacular. I was expecting a lot more. I didn't think the cookie dough flavor was very strong even though I did big pieces inside each. The cupcake itself was very moist and had a great texture. I think they would have tasted better with a chocolate flavored cake mix.

Boudreaux's Zydeco Stomp Gumbo

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2010
I thought the flavor of this Gumbo was very good! However, there way too much broth in it. If I make it again, I would probably use half the amount of broth. For leftovers, I ended up draining it into a colander and catching the juice in a bowl. I got the good stuff out of the colander then just added some of the juice back.

Kentucky Butter Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2010
I loved this cake! It turned out very moist, especially where the butter sauce had soaked in. I'm glad my brother took it back to school with him because I couldn't stay away from it. I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out beautiful!

Mexican Chicken Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2010
The soup was delicious! My mom and I loved it! The half and half gives it a nice creamy texture. The soup is just as good re-heated and may be slightly spicier. I followed the recipe as directed with the exception of omitting the onion.
