Endive Pear Salad Bites With Maple Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2009
I made this in the morning for a baby shower that was held in the evening. The salad kept well and transported well (I filled the endive leaves before transporting). Also, I used only about half of the dressing and mixed it in with the salad instead of drizzling it - turned out great. I made the following changes and was happy with them: used only 1/4 cup olive oil; mixed half blue cheese with half goat cheese to cut down on the strong blue cheese flavor. I think it was an attractive appetizer when arranged in a pretty way on a plate.

Pumpkin Pie Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
This was a really delicious way to use pumpkin. I used a can of plain pumpkin for the middle instead of pumpkin pie filling, and I added 1/2 a cup of splenda, 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice, 1 tsp. cinnamon, and 1/2 tsp. ground cloves, and it turned out great. Was the streusel topping supposed to be mushy? I would have liked more crunch, so would probably add pecans next time. As other reviewers noted, it needs to be baked about 70 minutes.

Mexican Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
I'm giving this 4 stars because it's a great idea, but needs some adjustments. I used ground turkey to cut down on fat, added 2 cans of kidney beans, an extra package of taco seasoning, and doubled the amount of cornbread topping. Mine needed 5 minutes more baking time than the recipe called for. Soooo delicious, filling, and easy!!

Roasted Vegetable Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2009
This was just so delicious. It was a little watery, but that problem disappears once it's refrigerated and reheated. If I wasn't worried about my waistline, I would have probably used more mozzarella on top, but it was definitely still rich and filling enough for me when I made according to the directions. I used cottage cheese instead of ricotta and omitted the egg, but it turned out great.

Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2009
This was fantastic! We just bought a grill for the first time, and I decided to try this recipe out - perfect flavor for grilled chicken! The chicken was extremely moist and the marinade was not overwhelming. I will make this again and again!

Light Oat Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2009
This was delicious and very soft. Much better than the white bread recipe that came with my bread maker. It smelled amazing when baking!

Strawberry Dream Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
Maybe I didn't make this right, but I was not a fan at all! I baked it in a 9x13" pan, and baked it about 40 minutes, which made the top as brown as I could let it get without burning it. The inside was so moist it was wet, and extremely dense. The frosting did not hold its shape well. I would suggest using just whipped cream because the frosting is expensive. Maybe if I covered the top of the cake with tin foil while it was baking it could bake longer without browning the top too much.

Chocolate Chex® Caramel Crunch

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
This is so delicious. I had a really hard time getting white chocolate to melt and drizzle easily. I suggest just adding M&Ms or white chocolate chips at the end, unless you are more talented than me. I added a handful of peanuts before the caramel glaze, which was delicious! If you want this slightly chewy rather than crunchy, add about a tbsp more of corn syrup.

Grilled Sausage with Potatoes and Green Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2008
This was absolutely delicious and so easy! I don't have a grill, so I just wrapped everything in the foil, put it in a big baking pan, and baked at 425 for 35 minutes, opening the top up for the last 10 minutes.

Mushroom Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2008
These were delicious! I baked them in the oven as suggested by other reviewers, but I'm sure they would have been good in the skillet too. They were extremely tender.

Thai Peanut Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
This was delicious and attractive! It was very salty so I think I will cut down on the soy sauce next time, and probably add some more peanut butter so I can taste it better. I added red bell pepper and it was great!

Apple Crunch Pie II

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
This is tasty, but it is so similar to apple crisp I might just forgo the crust next time and have that instead. The recipe is really enough to fill 2 pie shells. I would definitely cover the entire top of the pie with tin foil for at least some of the baking time, so the bottom crust can bake through and not burn the top.

Amazing Pecan Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2007
Just like other reviewers have said: melt in your mouth good! This was my first try at finding a classic coffee cake recipe and I am stopping here. I doubled the topping and it was terrific.

Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2007
This is very attractive and delicious. The combination of the butter and cream cheese make it very soft and moist. There weren't enough pecans to cover the whole cake, so they looked kind of scattered and weird. So I would add more pecans, or skip them all together and just put cinnamon and sugar on top. Also, my pecans burned a little, I think because there's no butter in the topping. I don't really know how to fix that problem. Overall, excellent, and everyone complimented me on how it looked and tasted.

Nutty Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
This is a good recipe. As suggested, I doubled the amount of oatmeal, added a teaspoon of cinnamon, and used pecans. To me, this was too tart, but I think a lot of people will love the "sweet and sour" taste combo. I will probably use half as much lemon juice next time.

Garlicky Summer Squash and Fresh Corn

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
If you are looking for exciting flavor, this recipe is not for you. It does have a nice mild flavor and tasted good to me. But I think I'll keep looking for a different recipe.

Raspberry Almond Tart

Reviewed: May 19, 2007
The bottom crust had a great texture, and the almond and raspberry flavors go together really nicely. I thought leaving it overnight in the fridge enhanced the flavor a lot. Also didn't think the lemon-powdered sugar topping was necessary, as it didn't seem to add much flavor and just got messy. Watch it carefully because mine got burnt around the edges when I left it in the oven for 50 minutes.

Snickerdoodles I

Reviewed: May 19, 2007
These cookies had a terrific texture but not enough flavor for our taste. Maybe it would be better to substitute butter for shortening? Also, usually our oven is hotter than most, but I actually had to bake them over 10 minutes...don't know why that was.
