Amazingly Good Eggnog

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2013
I made a small test batch to try as I have wasted alot of ingredients in the past on awful eggnog recipes. Nothing went to waste on this one as it was AWESOME!!!! I made it exactly as directed except I used agave instead of sugar and I skipped the rum because I don't drink alcohol. It tasted great but was a little too sweet and too 'clove'ey...lol..So...next time I will cut the sugar and cut the cloves to suit my families taste. This recipe with alterations is a keeper for us...thanks for the recipe.

French Breakfast Puffs

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2013
I liked these...ALOT! This is a very consistant recipe..I have made these twice and both times they turned out the same-DELICIOUS! I made these in regular muffin tins (I didn't have a mini muffin tin) and they filled 12 about half way. I used wheat flour instead of white, butter instead of shortening. I used Muscavado sugar (a whole form of sugar) instead of white and I added cinnamon. These were light and my husband and I both loved them. I had been jonesing for donuts and this is a cross between a sugar-cinnamon cake donut and coffee cake-Awesome recipe!!!Thanks

Cheddar Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2013
I read the reviews and made modifications accordingly. Cooked them at 375 for 22 minutes and added another 1/2 cup milk. I used wheat flour, garlic salt and a special spice I have (minced garlic, minced onion & lemon flakes) and added quite a bit of that. I also added chopped up raw onion (altho I think I would saute those next time) chopped roasted green chili and chopped fresh spinach. Skipped the raisons totally as that didn't sound at all appealing. I will make these again and maybe add some ham, YUMMY!!! Another reviewer had it exactly right..these taste like the cheesy muffins at Red Lobster...great recipe...Thanks... *smile*

Caramel Spice Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2013
I followed another reviewers suggestion and made these into cupcakes. I followed the directions with a couple exceptions. I don't cook "white" so instead of making these with white sugar I used 2 cups of muscavado sugar (a more whole type of brown sugar) also used wheat flour in place of the white. Didn't use nuts or allspice either. When I went to try the icing I ran some muscavado suger thru a grinder to make my own confectioners sugar. Used a stick of butter, a 8 oz package of cream cheese, a spash of vanilla, some buttermilk and then sweetened it till it suited me with the muscavado confectioners sugar. This recipe made as written made 30 cupcakes. They got totally devoured...there were 7 left and the pastor asked if he could have the rest! Other reviewers said the cake was dry and I didn't find it that way-cooked em for about 25-30 minutes and they were perfect! Didn't care for the icing as written but the cake gets 5 stars...Thanks Ginger for this recipe-it was awesome!

Green Chile Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2012
Awesome recipe. Made it exactly as written except I used parmesian cheese insted of the recommended one. I also sauteed onions, mushrooms & spinach, sprinkled salt, garlic and some cayenne pepper as it was cooking. Everyone loved it and couldn't believe it had cottage cheese in it. They loved the flavor and consistancy. Thank you for this recipe!

Caramel Custard

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2012
What a treat this recipe was! I have some 1 cup (size) pyrex oven safe containers and this recipe made 4 which was perfect for my husband and I! Cook time was way off though. Even in those small containers it took an hour and a half to cook. I also experienced the "foam" another reviewer did after whipping everything together and mine did NOT disspate after 5 minutes. (After 15 had gone by I said "what the heck" and spooned them into the glass cups and cooked them-they turned out fine by the way.) We also tried this 2 ways. My husband tried it cold straight out of the fridge and loved it. I then tried broiling the sugar on top and serving it that way-he loved that way too! Told me he definately wanted me to make it again so it is going in my 'keeper' file! Thanks for the great recipe Yvonne!...*smile*

Creamy Spinach Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2012
I liked this. It was fast, easy and delicious. I sauteed the onions as another reviewer suggested. I added ginger and cayanne (yum!) and I used milk instead of 1/2 & 1/2 as that is what I had. Will be making this again....*smile*

Cheddar Potato Wedges

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2011
Great recipe. super cinchy to make. I cut up my potatoes and threw them in a gallon baggie, tossed some coconut oil (instead of butter) in the bag then liberally sprinkled garlic salt, season salt and cayenne in, sealed it well and shook for a minute to evenly distribute seasoning...lol... Don't use microwaves but did as ismarie04 suggested and baked them at 425 for 13 minutes per side. Added parmesean cheeese last 5 minutes of baking... Awesome recipe....thanks Kathy!

Hamburger Rice Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2011
This soup was awesome. I don't cook with black pepper so I substituted cayanne for it. I also threw in some sage and italian spices and took other readers suggestions to use beef bouillon cubes as an additional flavor. It was great! Thank you...

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler

Easy-peasey recipe. I followed it exactly(except I used pears instead of peaches!) The only thing I would do different next time is double the topping/crust. It was awesome and family loved it...

Pesto Chicken Penne Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2011
I wanted to try something different. I typed in "chicken cassarole" into the search feature and this recipe popped up. I thought it sounded really unique and different. It was. Really really great dish. My family loved it! (and take Linda's instruction to heart...this made ALOT!) I followed the recipe pretty close except...my local store didnt have pesto so I dumped some chopped basil with a dribble of olive oil and garlic in. I also lightly floured and sauteed the chicken (which added to the overall flavor). I also spiced it up with some cayenne pepper. I asked my family if they liked it enough for me to make it again and the answer was a resounding YES PLEASE!!! Thanks for sharing Linda...*smile*

Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2010
Awesome recipe! Made it for a crowd of 20ish. Used 8 cans of fire roasted diced tomatoes, 2 sticks of butter, 3 cups of fresh cream (yea, I know high fat content...lol) and Garlic, Garlic Salt, & dried basil with a few tablespoons of Agave (sugar) Kept spicing it up until it tasted just perfect! What a hit! I am going to try it this summer with fresh tomatoes but, man! people loved it.

Gyoza Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
This recipe ROCKS!!!!!! The only adjustment I made was what other reviewers suggested which was to cut the vinegar to 1/3 cup. We had an art show at our Church last Saturday night and I made gyoza along with this recipe for dipping sauce and people RAVED about it and requested the recipe... Thank you Rebecca!!!

Gingerbread Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2007
I thought this was a great recipe. I did sub 1 stick of butter for the oil, Blackstrap molasses for regular molasses, used all wheat flour and rapidura suger instead of the white. I also followed "Firefly07"s instructions for how to mix it up They said "Second, to ensure a crunchy yet not-too-hard texture, I mixed the ingredients according to most biscotti recipes I've tried. I mixed all the dry ingredients, incuding the sugar. Then I cut the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembled course crumbs. In a seperate bowl, I lightly beat the eggs and the molasses together. I added this to the dry mix. I mixed this concoction until it was just combined. No overmixing! The dough should still be crumbly. I divided the dough in half and formed them into their log shapes on the cookie sheets. It's still pretty crumbly at this point, but it all firms up when you bake it. This looser dough allows the biscotti to cook up crunchy without being dense or hard." Thank you Cristina & Thank you Firely 07..this is the first time I ever made biscotti and it was awesome!

Ultimate Double Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2007
Wow...these are "knock your socks off, no messin around, take no prisoners" cookies!!!!...lol...These were truly awesome. I like to cook with natural sugars and things so I used whole wheat pastry flour and substituted rapidura sugar for the brown in the recipe and whole cane juice sugar for the white. I also used a 10 oz bag of organic semi-sweet chocolate chips in place of the pound of semi sweet chocolate chopped. I let the mixture settle for the 35 minutes suggested and then, the piece de resistance was I also added, just before baking, a bag of organic white chocolate chips. YUM! I think I actually saw a tear in my husbands eye after tasting one!...lol....Thanks Carol for a wonderful recipe...this one is a keeper for sure!
