Christmas Casserole Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2010
I needed to use up some dates that I bought for a different recipe and didn't make. And gluten free was a bonus. These were perfect. I did stir a couple times while baking, but I don't think I needed to. Just at the end would work fine. I followed another reviewers suggestion and left it overnight before working with it. And thank you to the reviewer who formed the mixture into logs using plastic or paper and then cut off pieces to form into balls and roll in the sugar. That made it go super fast and really contained the stickiness. The first person to try them asked for the recipe.

Eric's Best New York Style Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2010
Wow! I haven't made a cheesecake in decades. But I needed a low-carb dessert for a friends birthday. Being crustless this started off good. I substituted splenda for 1 1/2 cups of the sugar, using regular sugar for 1/4 cup. I also used half neufchatel and half regular cream cheese and light sour cream. I didn't add the amaretto as some people don't like almond, but added another tsp of vanilla. OMG it was so creamy it was fantastic. I also used these other tips from previous reviews. Instead of the water bath I put a glass baking dish with warm water directly under the springform pan. It did not crack. I still wrapped it in foil to keep it from dripping. And I lined the bottom and sides with parchment. The side parchment probably kept it from going over the sides. It makes a LARGE cheesecake. I will definitely be making this again. It's also a great gluten free recipe for my mother-in-law.

Banana Nut and Ginger Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
I had a bottle of really dark beer I needed to use - one sip and I knew I wasn't going to drink it. This recipe was a great find!! I always have a few bananas in the freezer and I have all the spices. I didn't have dates or raisins so I just added walnuts. I also didn't frost it. I still loved it!! I plan to make this again - I'll take it camping and have it in the morning with butter and hot tea.

Chocolate Chip Orange Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
This was a very good recipe. It is 4 and 1/2 stars. I used it as a base and made the changes based on other reviews and personal preferences. I omitted the choc chips since I'm not really a fan of them in breakfast foods. I sub'd apple sauce for 1/2 the oil, used 1 cup splenda and 1 cup brown sugar instead of all white. increased the cinnamon to 1 teaspoon, and used 1 cup white wheat flour instead of all white and added 1/2 tsp orange extract. I also baked it in a bundt pan. It was done in 48 minutes. A very good zuke bread - love the orange flavor.

Lemon Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2006
Made this for Easter. Used lemon cake mix and sugar-free instant lemon pudding instead of the vanilla as suggested by others. Also used light cool whip. Beat it for 4 min. as directed. Baked it in a 10x13. Super easy, and relatively light. All loved it, especially the younger ones. Served it with fresh strawberries.

Easy Eggplant Pita

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2005
This was a very good, and easy recipe. I only gave it 4 because I needed to add something to pep it up. I used fresh minced garlic instead of the powder, and I added about a tablespoon of fresh basil from my garden. And I added probably about a 1/4 cup red wine when it was almost done cooking, then cooked it long enough to reduce the liquid. I used a little fresh parmesan instead of the mozzerella, and put it in a flour tortilla. I did not use any dressing. I'll definitely make this again.

Deep Dish Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2004
I have made these twice now. Both times excellent. I did take the suggestions of other reviewers to make a less cake like brownie and only used two eggs and 1/4 tsp baking powder. And they only needed to cook 30-35 minutes. I also added 1/2 cup choc chips. These made a super moist, dense chocolatey brownie. I will definitely make them again!
