Cream of Tomato Gorgonzola Soup

Reviewed: May 23, 2009
Loved this! I'm going to have a hard time going back to plain ol tomato soup, espcially because this was so easy to make. I had all the ingredients on hand, served it with grilled provolone sandwiches. I had half an onion on hand so I chopped that up with the garlic and sauteed them in a little butter, then added them to the soup. The flavor was fantastic!

Pumpkin Pie Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
What a delicious recipe with only a cup of oil for three loaves of bread it's perfectly moist, and crispy, not soggy as I've found with adding apple sauce. I'm enjoying a warm slice with a cup of tea as I write this! Absolutely wonderful. Thank you for sharing this!

Fresh Tomato Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2010
I have a bounty of fresh tomatoes from my garden, so I used beefsteaks. This was so delish! Small problem, beefsteaks are very juicy. Next time I'll use Romas also, I tossed a few cloves of fresh garlic into the cheese miixture, out of this world!

Pan Fried Swiss Chard

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2010
We're growing Swiss chard in our garden, and just today, it was ready to cut. I'm so glad I found this recipe. I haven't been crazy about Swiss Chard, and now I know why.. I didn't know the secret of bacon and garlic! We served this to my husband's parents. It was really fun to serve something so delicious that we grew ourselves. I forgot the lemon, but I did chop up a Vidalia onion and sauteed it with the garlic. YUM!

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2010
I made this cake for my birthday today! My entire family said it was the best carrot cake they had ever tasted. I was tempted to add pineapple, then I decided not to change one thing in this recipe so I could honestly review it. If I had changed it, it would be a different recipe right? Absolutely wonderful. I'm looking forward to a slice tomorrow with a cup of tea. This is now the recipe I will use whenever I make carrot cake.

Gingerbread Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2010
I've been looking for a recipe like this! I did substitute the shortening for a stick of butter. YUM. I like that there's only one stick of butter though in the whole cake. Very moist and flavorful, simple to make. Also a side benefit, aromatherapy for the home while it's cooking! I didn't have an orange so I just made a simple powdered sugar glaze. As Emeril would say.. Happy Happy!

Turtle Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
I was very intimidated at the thought of baking a cheesecake but this was a gift to my husband for Valentines day. My family all agreed it was the best cheesecake they had tasted. I would only suggest having extra caramel, chocolate and pecans on hand to decorate the top as it is in the photo! Five stars for yummy!

Apple Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
Enjoying this so much as we speak! Oh my gosh the sides are crispy the texture is perfect... One word, YUMMY. Very easy, I followed one reviewers advice and just creamed the butter and sugar. Now, I was short one apple, so I had to get creative and replaced that amount with sweet potato! Perfect. Also drizzled it with a powdered sugar glaze. Wow!

Pork and Green Chile Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2010
I cooked this as per directions, except I pre-cooked my own brown rice in the rice cooker and put it in at the end. Just wonderful! Our grown son stopped by and when he tasted this, he gave it ten stars and took a Tupperware container home with him.

Curried Brown Rice Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
There's a party in my tummy! I had leftover brown rice that has been made into something wonderful. What I like about this recipe is it's versatile. I didn't have some of the ingredients so I used a can of mandarin orages instead of apples. dried cranberries instead of raisins, red onion, pine nuts. Only had real mayo and no yogurt so I used sour cream. The curry powder is ingenious here. I did throw in a tablespoon of Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. I even thew in a half a can of black beans! Absolutely Amazing!

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
I made a special trip to the store to make sure I had the exact ingredients. By the time I got home it was too late to use the slow cooker, so I tossed it all in a pot. I had leftover roast chicken. This was THE best chicken tortilla soup I've had. I'ts so easy too. Thanks!

Lamb Chops with Balsamic Reduction

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
Wow! My husband made this for us tonight. Although instead of shallots he added the zest of one lemon, and 2 cloves of garlic, and added that to the seasonings, and made it all into a paste with the olive oil. Spread it onto the chops and seared them. Absolutely wonderful, the sauce went well over brown rice also. Will make this a regular for lamb.

Easy Beer Bread Mix

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2009
I liked the idea of giving this as a gift, so without ever trying it, I made 4 batches, I put 3 of them in quart jars, tied some ribbons with hearts on them around the tops and gave one to each of our grown kids for Valentines day. I made one loaf for my husband and I and we loved it. All the kids said it was some of the best home made bread they've had. I didn't have any italian seasoning, so I used Emeril's recipe that he calls "Bam" Wow! It really did kick it up a notch to borrow from Emeril. The butter is a must. My second loaf is in the oven now, thank you!

Grandma's Applesauce Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
Delicious! If this is what they ate during the great depression, the great depression was not as bad as they say! I was out of raisins so I used dried cherries, I chopped them first. How delicious! One thing I made a little mistake on, was the cake looked nice and golden brown, so I didn't test the center,and it was a little under done in the center. Another 10 minutes would have done the trick, it's a wonderfully moist cake, but it may need a little more time.

Pat's Dumplings

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
The dumplings were just right, easy to make, I did use my food processor. I do wish I would have added more water since I live in the desert my dough is often dry, nonetheless, even though the dough was a little dry, the dumplings turned out perfect, I'm going to use this recipe from now on.

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2009
My husband and I loved this recipe. I followed the advice of another reviewer, and chopped the rosemary and added that and lemon juice to softened butter, and rubbed that under the skin of the game hens. I'll make this again. it was very easy and pretty to look at on the plate.

Gingerbread Boys

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
These are the best gingerbead cookies my family has tried, hands down.soft, but made nice little gingerbead boys. I followed bakers suggestion to use only large eggs, my dough rolled easily after flowering the board and rolling pin. I did use Molassis instead of dark corn syrup. We had our first gingerbread cookie party with our little grandsons today, we had fun making the cookies and smelling them bake. It made the Christmas season very special for all of us!

Pesto Chicken Florentine

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
This was just wonderful. Our daughter and son in law stopped by un-expectedly for dinner, and we all gave this 5 stars. I normally don't make things from packages, but I wanted to try the Alfredo mix to try the true recipe. However I did make my own pesto, (basil, walnuts, olive oil. This is a keeper! Thanks for sharing.

Blue Cheese Crusted Filet Mignon with Port Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2008
Really good. I was looking for a way to cook some beef fillet tips I had. So I used those for the meat. The recipe was very easy to make. It reminded me of the bleu cheese topped fillet mignon we once had at Ruths Criss Steak House. Only MUCH more affordable!

Golden Rum Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2008
This is a very delicious cake. I was hoping for some kind of thick caramel glaze, but decided to trust the recipe. The glaze did thicken a bit when it cooled, but I loved that it was thin enough to penetrate the cake and make a rich gooey crust that was to die for. The cake is perfectly moist. I wouldn't change a thing.
