Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2013
All I can say is, "WOW!" I live in Florida, have been making Key Lime Pie all my life using the "traditional" recipe: key lime juice, 1 can of condensed milk, and 3 egg yolks. It is a good, simple recipe, but the pie crust is only 2/3 filled, and I'm left with 3 egg whites that I am usually guilted into turning into a meringue topping. This recipe is, well, SUPERIOR! The flavor is delightful, it sets up quickly, and the pie shell is filled almost to overflowing! I used 2 cans of condensed milk and cooked for about 10 minutes. This will be the recipe I use from now on. THANK YOU!

Pan-Fried Chicken With Spinach and Pine Nuts

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2013
This was a hit with the whole family. Very simple, very tasty. Used walnuts instead of pine nuts since that was what I had on hand. Will be making this again!

Mediterranean Wrap

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2013
YUM! I stumbled upon this recipe when looking for something that would use my ripening avocado and the remaining goat cheese from last night's Chicken Bryan. Perfect! The author is right - this is a great recipe from which to springboard using what you have on hand. In my case, I made my own pesto (we prefer walnuts to pine nuts), and, since I already had the food processor going, I then added the goat cheese, sun dried tomatoes and avocado. This made it easy to spread onto the wraps. I sauteed onions, a red bell pepper and sliced chicken breast in olive oil and garlic, layered the mixture onto the wrap, added fresh spinach and -ta da! - rave reviews from the family!

Chocolate Butterfinger-Caramel Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2013
And the crowds go wild! And so does the cook, because this is EASY! The only change I made was to use Cool Whip instead of whipping my own cream because I was feeling especially lazy (I prefer to whip my own). I will say that this cake gets only better with time. I made it on Saturday to serve on Sunday and it was very good. But by Tuesday I thought it was great! Oh, and the only reason it lasted this long is that it is incredibly rich. A 3x3 slice is too big. Trust me on this. Serve smaller slices and enjoy it for a couple of extra days!

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2013
This was a hit with everyone, and especially for my friend who cannot eat tomatoes and therefore doesn't get to enjoy lasagna. The only changes I made were to use fresh spinach and, rather than make one in a 9x13 pan, I divided the recipe into three loaf pans, freezing two for later. Will most certainly be making this again. :)

Pork Chops in Spicy Orange Sesame Glaze

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2013
Worked for me! Anything that is this quick and easy, made with ingredients on hand, and tasty as well is gonna get 5 stars from me. After a while I removed the chops and cooked down the sauce to thicken it - we're low carbing it these days and skipped the rice. Oh, I didn't have sesame oil so substituted chili oil instead. Again, a great meal!

Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: May 31, 2013
This was great - quick, easy and let me use ingredients I had on hand. I sauted diced chicken and onion, then added diced zucchini and red bell pepper. Then added soy sauce, rice vinegar, ground ginger, chili oil (so no need for Tabasco), and chunky peanut butter. Simmered on low, adding a bit of water as needed, then served over a bed of lettuce. A hit with the whole family.

D's Taco Pizza

Reviewed: May 29, 2013
If you like tacos, you'll like this! I was making three different pizzas for a party, so to save time, I skipped making my own tomato mixture, opting for purchased salsa. Added garlic and oregano to my homemade crust. Spread in pan, coated it with olive oil and spread garlic on it. Cooked at 425 for 10 minutes. Topped with refried beans, beef mixture, salsa, cheese. Cooked 10 more minutes. Topped with lettuce, tomatoes, green onions, olives and sour cream. I had intended to also add diced avocado, but forgot them in the rush. Was a hit with everyone!

Banana-Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: May 21, 2013
Wonderful exactly as written! The second time I made them I didn't have bananas or cranberries so I substituted 1 cup shredded carrots, 1 diced apple and 2 tablespoons of orange marmalade. Again, wonderful!

Baked Chicken and Zucchini

Reviewed: May 20, 2013
Worked great as a last minute meal. A few changes to make it work with what I had on hand. Limited time so did everything in my black skillet, seasoning everything with Montery Chicken seasoning and grated parmesan cheese as I went: Cut up the chicken in bite-size pieces, stir fired it in oil and garlic without flouring (I'm going low carbs). Removed from pan then carmelized the onions in more oil and garlic. Added zucchini, browned, added a red bell pepper. Added back the chicken and then cherry tomatoes, warming and serving.

Spicy Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2013
Very good! I added a bit extra red pepper flakes, but I don't think it was necessary. I actually used this to marinade the country pork ribs I had on hand, for about 6 hours. Super flavor!!!

Raspberry Chocolate Supremes

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2013
A lovely dessert! Easy to make, lovely presentation, delicious to eat! I lined the pan with parchment paper so sticking was not a problem. Cut the bars with the sharp edge of a spatula that was heated in hot water to shattering of the chocolate was not a problem. Cut it into 9 pieces so the sweetness was not a problem. A winner!

Shortbread Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2013
Easiest crust I have ever made, and the flavor/texture was wonderful! Had to cook it a bit longer, but that was no biggie. Next time I will probably chill it before spreading in pan as it wanted to stick to my fingers (not as bad when I switched to a spoon). Used this instead of graham cracker crust for a caramel banana pie. Yum!

Kiwi-Lime Pork Ribs

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2013
This was a hit with the whole family. I lined a cookie sheet with foil, large enough that it would wrap around to complete the "loose cover." Made clean up a breeze!

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2013
I've been making French toast for decades, but this recipe took it up a level. Definitely gave the bread a fluffier texture. My husband kept going on and on about it. :)

RWOP Finalist: Mounds of Joy Whipped Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2013
Oh gosh, this was a hit, both in appearance and taste! Rather than using chocolate ice cream topping, I made a simple ganache by pouring 1 cup of simmering cream over 1 cup of chocolate chips, stirring until smooth, and cooling in refrigerator. I like Almond Joys, so between each layer, I poured not only the chocolate ganache, but some chopped almonds and some of the toasted coconut. I topped the whole thing with more chocolate, almonds and coconut as well (I've posted a photo). It was delicious, but even better the next day, served frozen. I think that next time, however, I will make this in a 9x13 pan - the pie was mile-high and difficult to slice in small enough pieces as it is extremely rich. We got 12 slices out of the pie; I'm sure that we would get 16 out of a 9x13 pan.
