Brownie Caramel Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2014
made as directed. The only suggestion I would make is to not spread the caramel all the way to the edges of the brownie before dumping the cheesecake mixture on it - maybe even making a moat. I found that the outside edges were quite hard and chewy due to the caramel baking to the sides of the pan. Most certainly did not see the caramel layer once cut but it was still a winner

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.

Zucchini Boats on the Grill

Reviewed: May 14, 2014
My husband and I enjoyed this recipe. I did not add the jalapenos because I wanted my kids to eat it - they weren't impressed. I did not boil the zucchini - I shallowly hollowed out the zucchini and sprinkled salt then rubbed the outside with olive oil. I did not add much of the zucchini pulp to the filling and I had no problem with it being too wet. The bread I used I left out for a few hours so it was dry. Overall it was a nice side dish and it would be easy to modify the fillings.

Cool Whipped Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2007
I always frosted my jello poke cakes with just plain cool whip. When I saw this recipe I thought I would give it a try. It added a nice flavor to the frosting and it thickened it up a bit. I took it to a outdoor party and the frosting held up to the heat well. I used the instant cheescake pudding because that was all I had. I am wondering if anyone has tried to use the chocolate pudding and frosted a chocolate cake with it.

Uglies

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
Surprisingly simple and good. I made some with BBQ sauce and some plain because I have 2 kids that don't like BBQ. The name does fit the product though - quite ugly.

Hot Buttered Rum Batter - Modified 12-27-09

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
Mmmmm - My uncle makes Tom and Jerry drinks every Christmas eve - this tastes almost identical. I did not use a full cup of butter (maybe 3/4 cup) - next batch I will try making it with 1/2 the butter.

Mile-High Peanut Butter-Brownie Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
I don't think I will be making this very often - because I could have ate the whole darn pie myself! Oh my! This one is a keeper. Followed the recipe exactly. It came out perfect and was firm enought to cut into small pieces which was necessary because it is very rich. I read the other reviews and wished I had used chopped up peanut butter cups too. If cutting the pie when it is cold it is hard to cut - let it sit out for a bit and it makes cutting much easier.

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
If you like sweet potatoes you have to try this recipe. Make sure the potatoes are fully cooked so the texture is smooth. My brother does not like sweet potatoes and said he enjoyed this recipe. I forgot to add the vanilla but it turned out great. Would be nice if calories could be cut without compromising the flavors.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2007
I made these this morning for my family and they were a hit. Nice and moist and the topping adds a little something extra. I did use oil instead of butter and a few nuts and some cinnamon to the batter. I think I will use apple sauce next time instead of oil. Definatley a keeper!

Sausage Jalapeno Poppers

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
This recipe is a keeper. I followed someones advice to halve and clean the jalapenos under cold water - that worked very well. I wore gloves and did not have any trouble with fumes. I cleaned the peppers the day before I needed them and waited to stuff and wrap them till the next day. I only used one pound of sausage - added a cup of chedar cheese, a little onion powder and some siracha (hot chili sauce). I had only cleaned 25 peppers and I did not have enough filling for all of the peppers - I used 2 1/2 pounds of bacon. Brushed the bacon with honey before baking - broiled the last few minutes. It was the first appetizer gone and I had several requests for the recipe. When I cleaned the peppers I removed all of the seeds and ribs - there wasn't hardly any heat so even those who don't like spicy foods were able to try them. The only downfall was the time it takes to prepare them - well over 2 hours.

Amy's Cilantro Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2008
This was a nice addition to my recipe box. As long as you like cilantro and a bit of heat this is a nice topper for a variety of meats or to use in wraps. I added a half can of the salsa then tasted it and gradually added more. I ended up using most of the 7 oz can but didn't want to make it too hot for guests.

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2010
Very nice marinade. I only added 1/4 cup olive oil and used chicken tenders. Didn't skewer them - they turned out nice and juicy with a great flavor.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2010
OH MY!!! This cake is spectacular. However, I did not follow the recipe exactly. I used 1/2 cup applesauce and 1/2 cup oil - in place of a full cup of oil. I also used 1/2 cup of strong brewed coffee in place of the water. Nice and moist - No need for frosting! I am glad I checked the cake after 45 minutes - it was done and an extra 10 minutes would have seriously over cooked it.

Insalata Caprese I

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2010
These were awesome. Fresh GARDEN tomatoes are a must - the store variety don't cut it. I sliced my tomatoes in thick slices then seasoned them with salt and pepper, topped with a slice of fresh mozzarella and onion then drizzled olive oil and balsamic vinegar glaze (a little thicker than regular balsamic). Topped with fresh basil thinly sliced into ribbons. Everyone loved them and it was a quick and easy summer appetizer.

Banana Pudding IV

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2010
This recipe was so easy and quick to make. I only added 7 or 8 oz of the sweetened condensed milk and 2 1/2 cups milk. I am wondering if anyone has tried making it without the condensed milk - I don't think it adds much besides sugar and pudding has enough in it to make the dish sweet enough. I also toasted some chipped pecans and put it on top. Also - I read a few reviews where they said the pudding mixture was runny. It will be if you add skim milk - if using skim start with 2 cups of milk and before putting it on the wafers put it back in the fridge for 10 minutes. Then check how firm it is. If it is too thick you can add a bit more milk. But even making just regular pudding out of the box does not turn out as well with skim or 1% so you have to add less liquid.

French Toast Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
Exelent recipe! I cubed the french bread - it is easier to serve and it soaks the egg mixture up better. I did add more eggs than the recipe called for - 9 in all. I also used 1 can of evaporated milk + skim milk to equal 1 1/4 cup. Added 1 tsp. cinnamon and cut nutmeg to 1/8 tsp. I baked it at 350 rather than 400 - gives the egg mixture more time to set up without burning the top. No problems with a soggy center. Not sure how long I baked it - I kept checking the center till it looked done.

Beer Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2010
Ok - I will have to admit, I did not make this recipe with beer and I used a box pancake mix (the kind you just add water to). I followed the advice of some and used root beer. My kids were in love. I have to admit - they are pretty good. Nice and fluffy with just a hint of root beer flavor.

Amish Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
This casserole was very good. I did not follow the recipe exactly though. I made it with 10 eggs. Added about 3/4 cup of evaporated milk and also added a little sausage and some sauteed mushrooms. I like swiss cheese but was concerned that others wouldn't like it. The swiss wasn't even noticable. I think if I would have only put in the eggs that were suggested in the recipe it would have been very stiff. The extra eggs and evaporated milk made a nice consistency for the casserole. Will be making this recipe again.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2010
Nice recipe. I only had 3 bananas so I halved the recipe and it turned out fine. I wish I would have had one more banana for a little more flavor. My husband loved the crust - I also sprinkled sugar on top of the batter before baking and it made a terrific top crust. The bread was very dense and moist. I probably could have cooked it 10 minutes longer - but it was a hit. I also baked it in one large bread pan at 325. Thanks, I've found my new banana bread recipe.
