Cream Puffs

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2005
Most Excellent! I grew up in a French owned country and I'm always looking for the best French recipes. Even though this one doesn't use homemade "creme patissiere" to fill the cream puffs the vanilla pudding and cream mixture is great and really fast! The "pate a choux" or puff dough however is fabulous! I made smaller sized puffs for the kids. I drizzled some melted chocolate to decorate and sprinkled with powdered sugar! They did not last long! Merci beaucoup & Bon Appetit!

Great! No bad smell as the recipe indicates. Reducced the butter to 1/4 cup. Added less sugar also 3/4 cup. Did not add any cinnamon. Just what I was looking for. Very tasty - will make again!

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2005
Most Excellent! One of the best banana bread recipes I've made! Very moist and addicting! Great way to use overripe bananas! Made 1/2 of the recipe. Topped one loaf with chopped walnuts, cinnamon sugar, and some coconut - delish! My friends are asking for the recipe and my family wants more! Thanks for sharing!

Rice Mess

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2004
This is a basic recipe. I added a can of diced Italian tomatoes for more flavor. Also a cup of shredded mozarella. Grated cheddar on top. Might be better with more tomatoes since the rice absorbs all the juice. Good quick starter recipe that can be modified.

Marbled Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2004
Yummy but not the best I've had. Added 1/2 cup butter for the crust if not it was too dry. Baked it for only 40 minutes it was starting to crack. Easy to make as my first baked cheesecake. Thanks for sharing!

Ruby Red Layered Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2004
Very tasty. Love the tartness of the raspberry jello and the frozen raspberries. Added whip cream instead of sour cream and it was delish! Second time made it with the sour cream - it was so much better! Don't skip the sour cream!

Baked Lemon Chicken with Mushroom Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2004
Most excellent! I served this with garden rotini pasta (the tricolor spiral pasta) and steamed asparagus and it was a hit! Even my toddler loved the mushroom sauce and pasta!!! Other variations: Since I didn't have a whole lemon on hand I used half lemon and a whole lime and it was delish! I also added 1 to 1 1/2 cup of broth for more sauce. This is now on our family favorite recipes list! Thanks for sharing this simple, healthy and delicious recipe!

Seven Layer Dip II

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2004
I omitted the cilantro because it's not a fav at our house. However the fresh made guacamole is superbe! Lime really brings out great flavor! Also left out the taco seasoning didn't have any on hand. Used freshly made refried pinto beans and fat free sour cream for a lower calorie/fat dip and everyone loved it! It's one of the best I've had! Thanks!
