Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2007
This frosting worked out great. Not too sweet either. I only added 1/4 cup of butter. This recipe made A LOT of frosting. I considered halving it but I was making a layered cake an I wanted to make sure I had enough. I could have generously frosted two layer cakes with it.

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2007
Great cake. I did make a few revisions though. I only added 1/4 cup of oil and I added 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce. I increased the carrot to 3 1/2 cups - after all it is carrot cake right.. I followed another persons advice and I ran the pineapple through my food processor before mixing it in. I did not add the coconut or rasins. Used pecans instead of walnuts and frosted it with cream cheese frosting and topped with toasted pecans. I am guessing that had I followed the recipe exactly it would have been much heavier. I kind of felt like adding the coconut and rasins would take away from some of the carrot flavor. But overall - the cake was a success. Thanks

Chicken Tortilla Soup I

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2007
This was a good soup. We did not think it was too tomatoey. However- My husband and I both felt like it was lacking something. I served it with avacado and shredded cheese. We both enjoyed the taste and texture of the avacado. I think next time I'll add more spices and a touch of fresh lime juice at the end. I will also add the cilantro at the last minute so it isn't so wilted.

Antipasto Squares

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2007
I made this recipe for a party and everyone loved them. I tasted it hot and room temperature. When it was hot it tasted a lot like pizza. When the squares were room temperature it was easier to taste the layers. Personally I liked them better at room temperature. I did not have a problem with a soggy bottom crust but I was cooking another dish at the same time and probably during half of the cooking time the squares baked on the lower rack of my oven.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2007
I would have given this recipe 5 stars but I had to tweak it a bit. I made the soup by the recipe except I used reduced sodium chicken broth. It had a good flavor but it was missing something. I added some fresh mushrooms and quite a bit more ham (maybe 2 1/2 cups total) I also added about 1/4 cup of grated parmesean cheese. Finally I added some siracha chili sauce and 1 tsp parsley. Ta-Da - awesome. Thanks for the recipe - it made a hardy meal..

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2007
I made this soup and froze half of it. It is still awesome after being frozen. I am thinking about trying this recipe with spicy turkey italian sausage to cut down on the calories.

Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2007
Thanks for the great soup recipe. I did add onions and fresh mushrooms. I also followed the advice of others to use low sodium broth. It definatley had plenty of salt. I made the soup early in the day then cooled it and skimmed the fat off of the top. I drained the sausage after browning but there was still a lot of grease. I also added a can of black beans instead of the great northern. The soup was even better the next day. I have tried making this soup with turkey sausage and it was ok but it is definatley better with regular sausage. The turkey sausage was kind of rubbery.

Kiki's Borracho (Drunken) Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2006
AWESOME!!! I did not add the beer. I did not have any and I think it may not have needed it. I seeded one jalapeno and quartered it. That added plenty of heat. However, after soaking the beans overnight I put them in the crock pot on high at 7 AM. By 3 PM the beans were still hard. I had to put them on the stove in order for them to be ready by 5-ish. This recipe was a big hit. I think it would be great with ham or chicken in it. But it made a great side dish for a mexican dinner.

Beet Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2006
After cooking for 30 minutes, the broth had great flavor. Then I blended the soup and it had the consistency of thick grainy pudding. It would have been great if I had not put it in the food processor. What a waste of beets. I even added some more beef stock to try to smooth things out and it was still grainy.

Beetroot Hummus

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2006
Not bad. Some people were turned off by the bright color. I thought it had a bit too much garlic. The second day the garlic was overpowering any other flavors.
