Amazing Pecan Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2014
first of all - I love that this recipe uses good whole ingredients (no cake mixes). I was looking at a cake mix the other day and decided NO MORE. Too many funky ingredients. Simple ingredients are just as easy and you know what's in the cake then! I have made this several times the night before. I used a bundt pan and baked for 50 min at 350°. I put half the cake mixture, then filling, then cake mixture in the pan. After it cools a bit, I seal the whole thing, including the pan in my big 26 cup Tupperware bowl until the next morning. When I want to take it out, I put the pan in hot water for a few mins and it turns right out on my cake stand beautifully! Locking the moisture in overnight makes it super moist. To finish it off I mix a little powdered sugar and water in a ziploc baggie, cut the corner and drizzle it over. It turns out tasting like it's straight from the bakery and I've gotten rave reviews. Awesome recipe!!!

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2009
GREAT recipe!!! Although I left out the garlic salt (because artichoke hearts usually come in brine) and also used fresh spinach. I wilted about 90g (because some juice comes out), then chopped and threw that in. PERFECT!!! Definitely a staple for my dip recipes. Thanks :)

This recipe is just AWESOME!!! I make this regularly now for Thanksgiving and everyone raves about it. It's a great alternative to the plain old pumpkin pie. Many thanks for the recipe!!

D's Famous Salsa

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2008
Great - I use 1/2 red onion though, add 1/2 teaspoon of sugar, 1 fresh chilli minced finely, only 1 can of tomatoes and a little less the cilantro - add freshly ground black pepper too. I don't put it in the food processor either - just mix it up 'cause I like my salsa chunky!

Creamed Chipped Beef On Toast

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2008
My mom used to make this growing up. However we used to call it "creamed peas on toast." Try adding some peas to the mixture! Sooo much tastier to have the juicy sweet peas along with the salty chipped beef! YUM!

Bob's Awesome Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2008
Very very very good! My mother always put cottage cheese in her lasagna and I prefer it this way. I think it makes the whole dish a lot lighter and it's not as rich and sickly as with so much ricotta; although I do sometimes add a bit of ricotta as well. I also make homemade sauce: a couple of cans of chopped tomatoes, 1/2 softened onion, couple of cloves of garlic, oregano, fresh basil, a dash of red wine vinegar, sugar, and seasoning. Thanks a bunch Bob!!

Blueberry Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2008
Superb! As some other reviewers stated - I think it's better the next day. I could taste the blueberry flavour more and all around the flavour had more depth. When I made this it was off season for blueberries, so I used frozen and it still tasted very fresh (I think the citrus helps). I love this recipe because it can be made the day (or two) before with no problem. I've recently used this for cheesecake and it was great. Thanks for such a wonderful recipe!

Garlic Mashed Potatoes Secret Recipe

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2008
Absolutely perfect recipe! I make this time and time again with all different potatoes - not just red. I always add butter and milk to my mashed potatoes anyway so I just remember the 3 main extras: oregano, grated hard Italian cheese (I usually use parmesan) and then of course the garlic. Then season as with any dish (salt and freshly ground black pepper). The mash always turns out perfectly and this is a staple in my recipe collection. Thanks so much for such a simple, tasty recipe!

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2008
Have not made many cheesecakes in the past and I followed the directions to a tee. It turned out perfectly, did not crack, and the texture was absolutely amazing! I plan to make this my staple cheesecake recipe from now on.

Mexican Mole Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2006
I could taste the tomato soup way too much. It had a good flavor but definitely tasted like doctored up soup. I'm going to keep looking for another mole recipe.
