Apple Raisin French Toast Strata

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2007
I made this for Christmas Eve morning brunch and it was a bit hit with my crowd. I did make the following changes and it turned out perfect: used 6 eggs instead of 8, only 2 cups of half-and-half, 2 medium sized Granny Smith apples sprinkled with cinnamon and suger after layering them, and spread the cream cheese (softened) on the bread before cubing it. I did mix it up the night before, but made sure that I really pushed the all the bread down under the plastic wrap so that all of the bread got some of the batter on it before putting it in the refrigerator. In the morning, I cooked it at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Everyone loved it, including my sister's picky boyfriend, and my boyfriend even had 2 helpings (he's not a big eater normally). We paired it with a potato casserole that my boyfriend's brother and wife brought and bacon and had plenty for our crowd of 6 adults and 6 kids. This would also be a good base for other kinds of fruit when in season. Some we came up with were blueberries, peaches, and pears.

Banana Pudding III

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2005
This recipe is so good and so easy!! A note: DO NOT use Cool Whip to replace the whipped heavy cream. The reason is because it is sweetened and this recipe is already sweet enough. The whipped heavy cream helps balance out the sweetness of the sweetened condensed milk and the pudding. Also, the lemon juice that is used to dip the bananas in does not add a lemon flavor it is just to keep the bananas from browning. I substituted french vanilla pudding mix and it turned out very good! ENJOYED THIS RECIPE!!! Thanks for sharing!!

Curried Chicken with Mango Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2004
The chicken came out perfectly and very tasty. The only change I would make is to add curry to the rice as well, but this is personal preference since we love curry! Thanks for sharing!

Mushroom Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2004
This was ok. Somewhat like a pork stroganoff. It was lacking in something. Very quick and easy, though. I did double the mushrooms and the cream of mushroom soup, which made for a very nice, thick sauce.

Irish Cream Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2004
The flavor was very nice. Smooth and tasty. I did get compliments on the taste as well. I need to play with this, though, as the presentation wasn't that great. Will experiment to find what works for my style. Thanks for a great start, though!

Libby's® Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2004
This was my first crack at making a cheesecake and the only problem I had was getting it cooked through. I did add some cooking time, got some cracking on the top, but the middle was still did not set up properly. Other than that, it had a very nice flavor, the sour cream topping was a nice addition, and it yields a large cheesecake that is perfect for a medium sized crowd.

Shrimp Pad Thai

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2004
I am only giving this 2 stars because my boyfriend thought this was decent. I thought the flavor was far to vinegary. In addition, I had to add chili sauce as the recipe did not call for any spicy seasonings. I was very disappointed in this recipe.

Best Formula Three-Cheese Fondue

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2004
Yummy, yummy, yummy!!! I served this with foccacia and granny smith apples. There were only two of us and we nearly polished it off! The only suggestion I would have is to shred the cheese, rather than cube it, to reduce the melting time. Thanks for sharing!!

Best Carrot Cake Ever

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2004
This was truly a wonderful cake! It does make a HUGE cake, though! I did not have two 10-inch baking pans, so I ended up with too much batter. It is a bit labor intensive if you have to manually shred the carrots like I did, but definently worth it. I frosted it with the Allspice Cream Cheese frosting from this site. Thank you!!

Scalloped Potatoes and Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2004
Overall, this recipe was one of the best I have gotten off of this site. The pork turned out so juicy and VERY tasty. I made a few alterations: I used red potatoes instead of regular and left the skins on, I added crisp bacon to the potatoes, I used sweet onions and sauteed them prior to adding them to the potatoes, and I mixed all of the potato ingredients together then poured the milk over them before adding the chops. I, too, had some difficulty getting the potatoes softened. I did microwave them for about 3 minutes after slicing them, but will microwave them longer next time. I covered the entire dish for the first 30 minutes of baking time, but still had to add 15 minutes to my baking time to get the pork and potatoes cooked. The potatoes still had a bit of a firmness to them, but it was not too bad. YUM!

Death by Chocolate and Caramel

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2004
This is a really rich treat! I made this for my caramel-crazed boyfriend and he really liked this dessert. The brownie baked up perfectly and the chocolate bars melted wonderfully. If I make this again, the only change I will make is to melt the caramels down before pouring them over the chocolate bars since they did not melt down during baking, but instead maintained their cube shape. Melting the caramel down will allow it to be more evenly distributed. Also, I only had room in my 13x9 pan for 6 chocolate bars, even though the recipe calls for 8. I used plain Hershey bars.
