Pineapple Upside-Down Cake V

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2013
This recipe is extremely simple and quick. I followed the recipe, except I bought a 20oz can of pineapple instead of 8oz. It had plenty of juice for the cake mix, and more pineapples to spread around on top. I used non-stick 9" round baking pans. I used butter cake instead of yellow cake mix. I baked for about 35 minutes total, but probably could have baked a little longer (3-5 mins). I let the cakes cool for about 10 minutes, and then inverted. I put the cake pan back on top of the top layer to prevent cracking. Super moist and delicious. Better than any pineapple upside-down cake I have purchased.

Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2013
I followed suggestions already posted - 1/2 cup quality balsamic (I used pomegranate balsamic, it was delicious), 1/4 cup dry sherry, heaping tablespoon brown sugar, and 1 minced garlic clove. I cooked the sauce separately until it was syrupy. Let the filets rest at room temp for 45 mins or so (30-60 mins is good), then seasoned with sea salt and fresh ground black pepper on both sides. Cooked on med/high heat for 1 min on each side, then about 4 mins with the saute pan covered (for medium rare). Added about a tbsp of crumbled blue cheese and broiled for a minute or so. Then, drizzled the sauce on it. Had asparagus and mashed potatoes with it. Absolutely phenomenal.

Brandy Flamed Peppercorn Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2013
Delicious! I've made this a few times now and it's always come out great. I follow the recipe exactly with the exception of removing the steaks immediately after the brandy burns off (instead of leaving in while addings the shallot/green onions/cream). Then I reduce the sauce a little until it's thick and creamy. I find 4-5 minutes per side ends up being perfectly medium rare - but I do let the steaks sit out of the fridge until they reach room temp.

Buttermilk Chocolate Cake with Fudge Icing

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2013
This recipe is perfect exactly how it is. My only complaint is that I will be gaining 5lbs this weekend because it is so addictive. The cake is moist and amazing, but not too too sweet. The icing is fudgy and fantastic.

Pear Pie II

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2013
YUM! I did use 1/2 vanilla extract and 1/2 almond extract, but otherwise I followed this recipe as written and the pie tastes like heaven.

Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2013
Great pie crust! And, so easy. I made them ahead and froze them. They make 3 crusts (so, 1 double crust pie and 1 single crust pie). I made a pear pie with the single crust, and it came out perfectly. I made a steak n ale pie with the double and YUM.

Steak and Ale Pie with Mushrooms

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2013
I modified this recipe, mostly because I really, really dislike mushrooms, but I really like steak and ale pie. I marinated 1lb beef in the worcestershire sauce, thyme, garlic, and parsley (1/2 tsp dried instead of 1 1/2 tsp fresh) for 6ish hours before I cooked it, and took the meat out about an hour before I cooked it. I tossed the bite sized cubed potatoes in a little olive oil, salt and pepper, and another 2 tablespoons of garlic. Instead of mushrooms, I cut up 3 carrots into bite sized pieces and tossed with a teaspoon of sugar. I baked the potatoes and carrots at 475 for 10-15 mins on aluminum foil over a baking sheet. I sauteed the beef and onions in a tablespoon of butter until the beef was browned and the onions were soft - adding salt and pepper to taste. Added a bottle of Guiness (11.5 oz I think), 3 beef bouillons, and sauteed for a bit. Spooned out the meat and onions and put the beef mixture and the potatoes/carrots in a big mixing bowl and set them aside. Reduced the Guiness, and mixed a spoonful of it with the flour then added that back to the sauce - came out thick. I poured the liquid into the big mixing bowl, stirred a little, then spooned the reduction into the pie pan, too. I only used a top pie crust that I had made from scratch - when I made it the first time I found two crusts were just too much (and I love crust!). Baked at 375 for 50 mins, and... delicious. Thanks for a yummy recipe! My boyfriend from the UK loves it.

Slow Cooker Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2013
As written, the recipe is a yummy curry. However, it is not a buttery mukhani. I noticed that when I poured the coconut milk and yogurt into the slow cooker at first, it had that great mukhani (which means buttery, not butter) consistency. So, I would make this recipe again with just a couple of changes. Instead of 1/2 olive oil and 1/2 butter... use all butter. And, wait to add the coconut milk and yogurt until 10-20 mins before serving. Also, I really like the Northern Indian dishes, and they use cream (not coconut milk or yogurt), so next time I will probably just use cream instead of the coconut milk.

Bread Pudding with Praline Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2013
Phenomenal exactly as written. I didn't change a thing. We ate it warm the night I baked it, and cold the following night. Both were absolutely delicious. Thank you for a solid recipe that is easy and scrumptous!

Grandma VanDoren's White Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2013
This bread is delicious - and as others have said, virtually no fail. It's easy and comes out great every time. Thanks for a great bread recipe! For those who have a food processor, this is how I do it (it saves on a little time): Proof yeast by dissolving yeast and sugar in the warm water and letting it set until foamy (5ish mins). Use dough blade to mix flour, salt, and olive oil in processor. Add in water mixture as fast as the flour mixture will absorb it. Mix until dough cleans the sides. Process for 45 seconds to knead. Then, I follow the directions in this recipe starting with rolling dough into ball and putting it in a big greased bowl and cover it with a damp towel. Also, I usually half the recipe - which yields two 1lb-ish loaves. Always comes out great!

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2013
Fantastic. I took some advice from other reviewers (but I did not brown the meat or deglaze). I used 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce (instead of 1 teaspoon), used a whole can of swanson's beef broth (which is a little more than 1.5 cups), added mccormick's beef stew seasoning mix, used 2 bay leaves instead of 1, added a couple of cloves of garlic, and threw in the rest of a good bottle of red wine I had (probably 5 oz or so) that I wanted to use before it got vinegary. I cooked it on high for 2 hours and low for 5 hours (just because I didn't have time to wait 10 hours on this particular day). Served with Grandma VanDoren's bread, from this site. Exceptionally delicious and tons of compliments. Thanks for a fabulous recipe!

Toasted Breadcrumbs

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2013
Thanks so much for this base recipe! I sprayed mine with some olive oil spray, added garlic salt, and ground up italian seasoning herbs and sprinkled it on top of both sides. Baked at 250 for about 40-45 mins (used homemade bread - Grandma VanDoren's recipe on here). Perfection!

Mom's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2013
The reviews of this cookie are very accurate. The cookies are more dry and more cakey than I would have liked, but if I'd read all of the reviews first, I would have known that. For the type of cookie it is (again, according to the reviews), they came out perfectly.

Lemon Custard Pudding Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2013
Absolutely delicious. I did add more juice - I just used all of the juice from 1 lemon (and all of the zest from 1 lemon). Not because the recipe needed altering, just because I was being lazy with measurments. My pudding cake did not over brown at all. Great recipe that I'll use over and over again - thanks for sharing!

Roast with Gravy

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2013
This was really easy, and was a big hit. I strained the "gravy", just because i don't like things floating around in my gravy. Served it with Yorkshire Pudding. No one detected the coffee at all. I followed this recipe to a tee. I'm not a gravy fan, but this gravy was delicious.

Quick and Easy Yorkshire Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2013
I used 4 eggs instead of 3 (was taught to do equal parts milk, flour, and egg, and 1 cup ended up being 4 eggs). Otherwise, I followed this recipe exactly and they came out great. Served them with the Roast with Gravy (which has coffee as a "secret ingredient"). Was a huge success!

Slow Cooker Bolognese

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2013
Very simple, and very tasty. I served it over spaghetti squash, which also made it very healthy! I loved how meaty it is. UPDATE: Made it using 1/2 mild italian sausage and 1/2 very lean ground beef. Delicious!

Whiskey Hamburgers

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2013
YUM! Followed the recipe exactly and it was so good and tender. Perfect burgers. I did leave the burgers out for a while before cooking them (longer than planned because it took forever to get my coals going). Definitey my go-to burger from now on. Also, its really nice to have the rest of the beer to sip while grilling!
