Little Mickey's Favorite Cheesecake

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2007
I made this for my fiance's fifteen year-old son's birthday. He's quite a picky eater and doesn't like cakes or pies, but he loves Reese's Cups, so I thought I could win him over with this. I used others' suggestions and substituted chopped peanut butter cups for the chocolate chips, used chocolate graham crackers for the crust, and I didn't put the pan in a water bath, but did put a 13 x 9 pan of water directly below it in the oven. I also put a thin layer of melted chocolate over the top of it and sprinkled on a few more chopped peanut butter cups. The birthday boy ate it, but didn't seem blown away by it (it had that slight tang that cheesecake's often have, and I think that probably didn't sit well with him)...however, my fiance loved it so much he nearly ate the entire thing over a period of four days, and now he's begging that I make it for his birthday, too! Personally, I enjoyed it but think I'd like it better if it had been a chocolate cheesecake with peanut butter added and a peanut butter glaze on top, so I'll probably try combining this recipe with a chocolate cheesecake one when I make it for my fiance.

Early Times Mint Julep Recipe

Reviewed: May 5, 2007
This is the only way to make simple syrup! I didn't have quite enough time to let the syrup and mint sit overnight, but it was still quite tasty!

Mint Juleps

Reviewed: May 5, 2007
In a pinch, this method of making the syrup will do, but I've found it's much better if you can only bruise the mint leaves (rather than chopping them)--they're much easier to remove from the syrup, and the flavor still infuses well. Also, the mint is a bit better if you can let the syrup rest overnight with the mint in it (covered in the fridge).

Run For The Roses Pie I

Reviewed: May 5, 2007
This was the recipe I was looking for--remembered "Derby Pie" from my youth in KY as being like this, but the recipes I've always found have been more like a chocolate chip cookie and less like a pecan pie in consistency. This one was really good, but I did need to cook it a bit longer to keep it from being too runny. I would probably also reduce the amount of chocolate chips by about 1/4.

Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2007
This was FABULOUS!! I'll definitely be making it again. I'm not a big sweet potato fan--especially not for the recipes that have marshmallow in them--so I wasn't sure how I'd feel about this one, but it was really yummy and was a huge hit with the whole family!

Libby's® Pumpkin Cranberry Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2009
I only gave this 4 stars because I tweaked the recipe. The bread is perfectly moist and spiced. I took it to work, and everyone loved it! Here's how I tweaked the recipe: I added 1 cup of chopped pecans, 1 tsp. of grated orange peel and an extra 1/2 c. of fresh cranberries...but I could've added even a bit more. I also sliced all of the cranberries in half. I baked this in mini loaf pans, so I could give them as gifts, so the baking time was also reduced by about half. Will definitely make this recipe again!

Brussels Sprouts in a Sherry Bacon Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
These were fantastic! I didn't change a thing with the recipe (which is unusual for me), and even the pickiest (non vegetable) eaters asked for seconds!

Cranberry Apple Stuffed Pork Loin

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
I only gave this 4 stars because I didn't follow the recipe exactly (I added a cranberry glaze, also found on this site). The stuffing was excellent though, and I'll definitely do this again.

Oven-Baked Caramel French Toast

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
This was fantastic! Made it as directed--if you don't like too sweet of a breakfast, you can avoid making the additional sauce, but we all enjoyed the added caramel flavor.

Apple Squares

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
For dietary reasons, I made a lot of adjustments to this recipe, but the bars were quite tasty (and I credit that to the original recipe, and some suggestions of other reviewrs, not my changes). I doubled the recipe and used a 13x9 pan. Added 1/2 tsp of cinnamon instead of 1/4, only used 2 Tbsp butter, and added 1/4 c. applesauce and 1 small, mashed banana. Only used 1/4 c. of both brown and white sugar, per other reviewer's recommendations, and doubled the amount of apple. I did keep the topping amounts as noted, since I'd cut the sugar in the base recipe. These wen't over really well with the kids as well as adults! (Really loved eating them warmed, too.)

Jen's Fresh and Spicy Salsa

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
Definitely needs ripe tomatoes! I made this for Superbowl, and tomatoes weren't in season at all. The salsa was still tasty, but just not as "fresh" and flavorful as it could've been with a higher quality tomato.
