Unbeatable Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2014
I must admit, I was skeptical while this pie was cooking, because it seemed like it was puffing up like a cake would, instead of setting like a normal pecan pie... But then I tasted it. It isn't spongy like a cake, but the top is perfect with a delightful crispiness and the inside is the most moist (but not soggy), delicious, perfect pie I've ever tasted. Pecan pie is my husband's favorite, so I made it as a reward for making it to Phase 3 of the Maker's Diet, and I made the following substitutions: -I used a sourdough crust with the recipe found here: http://www.freshhealthycooking.com/Sourdough_crust.html -1/4 cup stevia instead of 1/2 cup sugar -I used the amount of butter in the directions (2 TBSP)for the pecans instead of the amount in the ingredients list (2tsp)

Easy Cinnamon Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2013
This was so fast and easy and it had that perfect "melt-in-your-mouth" consistency I was looking for... Good thing I doubled the recipe. I plan on eating 2/3 of it myself ;)

Best Steak Marinade in Existence

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2014
I used this on venison after pounding the heck out of it. It stayed in the marinade overnight then I cooked it in the crock pot. It had no gamey taste whatsoever and it just fell apart!

Pizza Casserole

Reviewed: May 15, 2014
I'm always skeptical of pizza-flavored pasta, but this was the best one. Everyone loved it, and it was easy! I deviated slightly from the recipe: I used some leftover ground venison that had taco seasoning in it, I used a whole jar of marinara sauce, pre-sliced pepperoni (easy) and I grated some cheddar cheese in addition to the mozzarella. Yum!

Venison Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2013
Great chili! I used 1 lb ground venison and 1 lb pork sausage, 2 small white onions bc i didn't have a red one, 1 1/2 cups of wine, dried cilantro because the store was out of fresh, 1/4 tsp cayenne and 2 heaping tsp chili powder, and I added a can of pinto and a can of kidney beans because we like beans :) better than other venison chili recipes I have tried!

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: May 23, 2013
This was SO GOOD! I pounded the chicken first with a meat mallet, and did everything else the way the recipe says. I'll definitely make this again!

Buffalo Style Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2013
This was GREAT!! I threw the chicken in the crock pot for a few hours and shredded it because it's so easy and comes out perfect, plus the shredded chicken really hangs onto the hot sauce. I used Louisiana hot sauce because that's what we had, but i didn't measure it, I just added as much as I thought the kids could handle and then more for my husband's side of the pizza. I used Marie's blue cheese because it's awesome, and I used a whole 16oz brick of mozzarella cheese and grated it. This was just as good as any restaurant's buffalo chicken wing pizza!

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2014
This was great- everyone loved it. I made a few small changes: I spread some refried beans on the tortilla before putting the cream cheese/bean mixture on, I then sprinkled some Mexican blend cheese on and rolled them up, then I stuck the burritos on a George Foreman grill for a minute or two.

Pan-Fried Asparagus

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2013
Great flavor! I think I prefer broiled or grilled asparagus, but those weren't an option for me this time as my oven was occupied and the grill looks like a snow drift... I added some lemon pepper and a little red wine vinegar at the end too. :)

New Year Spinach Fettuccine with Scallops

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2014
This turned out ok.. Too fishy for me but maybe if I use steak next time instead of scallops then it might turn out better. Maybe I'll try it.
