Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2014
I have been making this cheesecake recipe for more than a couple of years - and am just now submitting my 2 cents. :) This is an easy recipe with an end result that is sure to impress anyone you serve this to. It is a dense yet creamy cheesecake that is delicious without any topping. If using a topping with this cake I would suggest using something simple and as close to fresh as possible - as opposed to a canned pie filling. This recipe has never failed me following the recipe as is. Ensure you leave this in the fridge for at least 6+ hours after taking out of the oven to allow it to settle & give you the best texture. Bake it an hour before bedtime and leave it in the oven until you get up in the morning, then refrigerate. It's ready to serve for dinner dessert. Nice....

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2013
5 stars for a delicious no-meat burger and for ease of preparation & cooking. Made these for a burger-burn w/some vegitarian guests attending. The non-meateaters enjoyed these & said these were much better than the store bought brands. I (a lover of a good meat burger) wound up eating one of these burgers instead of a meat burger - grilled with green chile and cheese on top :). Delicious. As suggested by other reviewers, it is necessary to drain the beans very well and not mix the pepper & onion mixture in if its too wet. You will need to drain some moisture off as needed. You can easily add more moisture if needed - just enough to "feel" the pattie texture will hold together when cooked & flipped over while cooking.

Hot Pepper Jelly

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2013
This is delicious! As suggested by others I increased the jalapenos to 1c leaving the ribs and seeds for some warmth. I had no setting problem with the 3 batches I've made so far over the past 2 weeks using the same ingredient measurements as stated -measuring 4c total of peppers and hand-fine-cut the peppers. The jelly looks beautiful with the peppers suspended throughout. I would suggest NOT to add food coloring. The natural colors look very festive and I would imagine more appetizing. I have served this with cream cheese and also with extra sharp cheddar & buttery type crackers (ritz, townhouse). I am happy to have found a new tasty homemade Christmas gift for friends. I am sure it will be well received. :) Thank you!

Rachel's Sugar Plum Spice Jam

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2011
Too much clove for me, but otherwise I like the texture and the full fruit flavors - the plum, pineapple and orange are a nice combo. I substituted 2 cups crushed w/juice for the fresh pineapple as suggested by another & it worked very well. Definitely will cut the clove next time to maybe 1/4 tsp and add 1/4 tsp cinnamon. As is, I will have to use it strictly as a glaze for maybe hams, or pork loin, or ....? I'll try it on a variety of meats & label it as a glaze. For me this yeilded 12 8 oz jars. That's a lot of glaze .... wish it had turned out tastier as jam.

Candy Apple Jelly

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2011
So easy and SO tasty. I am happy to find this recipe after tasting the jelly a friend shared with me. My batch yielded 6 8oz jars - no more, no less. This jelly is enjoyed with softened/room temp cream cheese and a plain water cracker. Also, we use this as the "J" in PB&J sandwiches. A different flavor for a jelly, and a nice change once in a while.

Slow Cooker Texas Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2011
EASY!!! Gotta love it. This is a very tasty crock pot Pulled Pork recipe. It is so flavorful after returning the shredded pork to the crock to soak up juices. I made this ahead of time - day before - as the main dish for a casual dinner with guests. Heated it back up in the crock with a little water to moisten. It was delicious and tasted freshly cooked. Great meal - especially for a busy person.

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2011
This truly is the best Carrot Cake recipe I have found. It bakes beautifully. The coconut and pineapple add such depth to the flavor and make this a hearty filling dessert in either cake or cupcake form. This makes approx 30 cupcakes. Cream cheese frosting is the best compliment for this finished recipe.

Cut-Out Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2011
A rating of 3 only. If I could, 2&1/2 stars is my true rating.The flavor of the cookie itself is good, however the dough is not easy to roll out due to a dry texture. I tend to think this recipe is missing milk. After Iw baked a dozen with the recipe as is, I added about 2-3 tbsp of 1/2&1/2 to the already mixed dough, worked it in well with my hands to get a more plyable dough. THEN I was able to easily roll the dough and cut-out cookies. I will not use this recipe again - too much trouble/work. I will stick with my current rolled sugar cookie recipe.

Pudding-Topped Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
The pudding/sour cream/pineapple combo is surprisingly very good. I used a large glass decorative bowl and layered angel food cake cut into 1" pieces, then pudding combo, then strawberries, bananas, canned mandarin oranges, pineapple chunks, then layered everything once more. I did double the pudding combo as the bowl I use is quick big. I took this to a breakfast potluck. It was enjoyed by all.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
Very good muffin! Flavorful and moist and a very easy quick recipe! I get 12 regular muffins from this recipe. The crumb topping really adds to the overall taste, especially because there are no nuts in the recipe. No nuts is good, as I seem to have a few friends and family that have an allergy to nuts. I make these frequently, especially when I have overnight guests. Good addition to breakfast menu.

German Chocolate Cake Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
Perfect traditional frosting for German Chocolate Cake! Easy and so-sooooo much tastier than a container of store bought. The recipe as written wasn't quite enough to frost a double layer 8 inch cake. I will make an additional 1/2 recipe to this next time - and will double the recipe if making a 3 layer cake. **After making this a few times since rating I would suggest the following slight changes: 1/2c white & 1/2c brown sugar; also increase the coconut to 2c, pecans to 1.5c; this perfects a box German Chocolate cake mix if you don't have time for scratch cake & works very well on cupcakes.**

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2008
This is really "Awesome" as the title refers. The more you use the recipe, the easier it is to add your own special touches..... carrots, potatoes, onion, wine, etc.... This is probably my most used recipe (with my own alterations) that I discovered on this site. Thanks!

Creamy Spiced Coleslaw

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2007
The BEST and EASIEST slaw dressing I have found! I do substitute Splenda for the sugar which works great! Also, I'm not one to have celery seed on hand, so instead I use 1/4 tsp. celery salt and omit the 1/2 tsp of regular salt. Very tasty. I prefer homemade dressing to store bought as then I know what is in it AND what is not and.... if you have all the ingredients on hand anyway, why not take 3 minutes to make your own? Thanks for sharing this recipe with us. :) *shred your own fresh cabbage for a really fresh slaw and save some money too*

Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2007
Add bacon and basically whatever other combination of cheeses, onion, mushrooms, etc. This recipe is easy to adjust/enchance/change/whatever-you want-to call-it to your preference and to what you have on hand. DO cut the butter to a little more than 1/2 what is called for, for less oily results. This was SO tasty and quite the crowd pleaser serving hot and at room temperature.

Original Irish Cream

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2007
YUMMMM! Nice to find an Irish cream recipe that does not require raw egg. I followed the modifications of another reviewer with my own shortcuts - e.g. 1/2 tsp. almond, 1-1/4 C Whiskey, used instant coffee & about 25 melted choc. chips in milk in the microwave then added to other ingredients in blender. Perfect! **using melted choc. chips is a more "real" chocolate flavor than the syrup and chips are usually on hand** Thanks Mom and modgepodge for the recipe and suggested tweaks.

Cinnamon-Roasted Almonds

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2006
Excellent reviewer tips on this recipe - a bit of tweeking for a perfect end result. The changes made: substitute 1tsp. vanilla for the water, add 1/2 cup of brown sugar to dry ingredients, increase the cinnamon to 1tsp. used 1/2 cup of Splenda for the white sugar ingredient (because I have to watch my sugar intake; worked great with the sugar substitute),used a 16oz. pkg. of almonds for this recipe to ensure good coating. If using more nuts, increase the coating ingredients. Cooked my batch on a cookie sheet with parchment paper (easy cleanup) at 250 degrees for 1hr.15mins. stirring every 20 mins or so. Good stuff! This goes into my Gift Giving recipe file.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2006
Very moist, tender, tasty pork chop is the end result. It's so nice to eat pork chops that are not dry! The coating & pan fry prior to baking, I believe, seals in the moisture so don't skimp on the initial steps. I like spice and not a lot of salt so mixed equal amounts of garlic powder, onion powder & celery salt for a rub prior to the dredging, egg, bread crumb coatings. Being cautious to avoid drying out the meat, I cooked covered for 1/2 hr.only then added the sauce as intructed for another 1/2 hr. Perhaps if using thicker cuts I may cook longer. I suggest using the white wine in your sauce - chardonnay works well for my cooking needs. It flavors the sauce which otherwise would be bland.**I buy the 4pk. of small wine bottles that are now sold in stores to avoid having to open a full bottle if not consuming the wine with dinner. You then have wine on hand for cooking anytime**

Pretty Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
Easy marinade resulting in a nice flavorful chicken breast. I like that the marinating time is only 4 hrs. as I seldom think so far ahead to marinate overnight or for a LONG time as many marinades suggest. "Pretty" is subjective. I wouldn't exactly call the chicken Pretty, but definitely tasty!

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2006
This is the BEST icing recipe I have found for the "shiny-smooth" look on a cookie. The icing doesn't mottle like the other recipes I've found that use egg white as an ingredient and no need for constant stirring. The icings dry beautifuly and true to color. **NOTE: I added the milk in Tbs. measure (ie: 2 Tbs. milk) instead of tsp. as indicated. Tbs. milk measures worked much better for me.**
