Mary's Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
I followed this recipe exactly, except using a 10 inch pan instead of a 9 inch pan. The texture was great, and would have been perfect if I had baked it less time. Mine got a little dark on top and drier because of that. I wonder if this was due to all my ingredients being absolute room temperature and not the least bit cold. (?) If I make this again, I'll shorten the cook time by 10-15 minutes. The taste was good, but I like my cheesecakes with just a little more citrus flavor. This recipe was easy to follow and certainly better than most I've tried.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2008
I followed this recipe exactly, but did not make the taco seasoning mix recommended in the first review. I used taco seasoning from the pack. My family enjoyed this soup and it was very easy to put together. The entire seven hours of cooking were required to mesh the flavors. I will make this again, however, I will use chicken broth next time instead of beer. The beer gave it an "off" taste that didn't quite belong.

Linda's Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2008
My entire family loved this lasagna, agreeing that it was the best we had eaten. I did wish I had a bit more sauce, but everyone else disagreed with me and said it was perfect as it was. We'll be using the recipe often!

Southwestern Black Bean Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2008
My toddlers helped make this dish by emptying all the cans into a bowl and adding the water. Then I emptied the bowl in with the cooked and drained meat. We did not add the sour cream at this time because some of us do not care for it. After the stew was complete we put it in bowls and added the cheese. My girls ate every bite and asked for seconds. The next day they requested it again. Next time I'll double the recipe. It's a family pleaser because each person can customize it with cheese, sour cream, jalapenos, chips, etc.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
Ingredients were added exactly as recipe instructed. I followed the advice of another reviewer and decreased temp to 260 and left it at that temp for 50 minutes, cooled for one hour and then refrigerated over night. The cheesecake was runny. I had to put it back in the oven in the morning for another hour. Additionally, I would advise using creamy PB instead of crunchy for a better texture. The randomness of a crunch made the peanuts seem out of place. I have made many different cheesecake recipes and this was the worst so far. Nice idea, just didn't work.

Easy White Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
WOW! This was divine. I made this to take to my parents' house on Christmas Day. There were only six adults, but this chili was completely GONE by the end of the day. Everyone kept going back for more. We made only a few changes. We seasoned our chicken with southwest seasoning blend before baking it. We used five cans of beans, but we pureed an additional can to thicken the chili. Other than these two things, we followed the recipe exactly. We will make this again, soon and often.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
This recipe was so easy! :) I used gourmet peanut butter which contained cinnamon and raisins. Because that peanut butter was so sweet, I used 1/4 cup less sugar than the recipe recommended. I had to bake the cookies longer than 8 minutes, not sure if this was due to the changes I made to the recipe. Mine baked for 13 minutes. They were delicious. I look forward to making these again and trying it with regular peanut butter.

Mini Cheesecakes III

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2006
These turned out just as delicious as the big cheesecakes, only a lot less baking time! I made 18 of these for a baby shower today. I topped half with blueberry pie filling. The plain cheesecakes were enjoyed just as much, if not more, than those with topping. I look forward to making these again just for my family. Thanks for sharing!

Killer Shrimp Soup

Reviewed: May 27, 2006
Amazing blend of flavors! I halved the recipe, but otherwise followed it exactly. The soup was so delicious that we could have eaten it without the shrimp! The herb combination is just perfect. Thanks for sharing this!

Cracker Jack Cookies I

Reviewed: May 24, 2006
Great cookie! Chewy with a bit of crunch from the peanuts. Mine turned out a little thin, but I didn't have real butter. A friend suggested using a little less butter when a cookie recipe turns out flat. I'll try that next time. I did try the first batch without coconut (half the family doesn't like it). I added it in before I baked the next batch and was convinced the coconut is vital. It holds together better and gives it great texture. Everyone loved the taste. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Incredibly Delicious Italian Cream Cake

Reviewed: May 15, 2006
I made this cake as a mother's day present for my Mom. She requested "anything coconut". When I removed the cakes from the pans I tasted a small piece off the top. The taste was divine, buttery coconut. I was very excited about what the finished product would taste like. When we finally cut into it and tried it, I was a bit disappointed. It seemed dry and missing something. My mother SAYS she loved it, but I think I'll try a different recipe next time. Someone suggested reducing the cooking time by 10 minutes. I wish I had read that before making the cake.

Fiesta Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: May 11, 2006
Thanks, Lisa M, for submitting this great recipe! Like you, I don't care for green peppers; but the red, orange, and yellow peppers were simply divine in combination with the stuffing. I doubled the recipe and left salsa off the tops of half the peppers (to make them more kid friendly). I'll make this again, soon!

Sancocho

Reviewed: May 3, 2006
This was not a bad dish, but certainly not worth the effort involved. The cassava root was hard to peel considering that it ended up tasting like a potato. Actually, everything in the stew (other than the chicken) tasted like a potato, only starchier. However, the chicken was delicious. My husband and I decided to remove the chicken from the bones and keep the onions and tomatoes topping. We’ll eat them together as leftovers. Judging from the other reviews, I think this makes a great cultural comfort food. It just wasn’t for us.

Hamburger Stew

Reviewed: May 1, 2006
I followed the recipe NEARLY exactly, leaving out celery because I forgot to buy it. I salted my hamburger. And also used "hot" taco seasoning. My family tried this immediately after the potatoes were cooked through. I thought the pork and beans were a bit too prevalent. But, my husband LOVED it exactly as it was. He ate FIVE bowls. FIVE!!! He ate two bowls for breakfast the next day. Maybe he’s just thrilled that I actually cooked something besides a pie. But, I think it’s safe to say that this is a man pleaser for sure! I personally would rate it a four, but I’m taking my family into account and rating it a five.

Banana Cream Cheesecake

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2006
Fabulous recipe! hyatttm included every step to prepare this cheesecake, making it easier for anyone who has never before tried to make a cheesecake. It came out perfect, the best consistency of any I’ve made! I was a bit intimidated by the topping recipe, but I’m glad I tried it. It was easier than I expected, came out perfect, and completely changed the experience of eating this delicious dessert. The cheesecake itself is very rich and dense, but the topping adds a light creaminess that allows you to come up for air and then dive back into that intoxicating richness. Banana flavor was not overpowering, but definitely present. Everyone loves it! I will make this again and again.

Simple Baked Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2006
My family loved this and most of them usually refuse to eat baked beans! This recipe is very easy to prepare, and great for kid-helpers. We cooked a pork loin the day before, so we threw in shredded pork pieces and extra onions. We love the simplicity and the versatility of this recipe. Thanks for sharing it!
