Pumpkin Custard Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2014
I used mini graham cracker shells. First time I did 350 for 20-25 min nd seasoned wth fall spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves) to taste. I baked a fresh pumpkin and mixed with an immersion blender. Since baking the pumpkin Carmelites it I omitted the brown sugar on the second run. Turned out great! I even forgot about the flour the second run and no problems for any gluten people.. Actually more custard like without the flour. Point being, great versatile pumpkin custard base that gives you that creamy sweet pumpkin filling. Easy to make it with your own flare... I top it with a little brown sugar burbon whip cream (1/2c whipping cream, 2 tbsp brown sugar 1-2 tsp honey whiskey and a dash of cinnamon)

Peppermint Meringue Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2013
Adorable, low calorie for finicky holiday cookie exchangers and tasy! Super easy except the candy cane powder cemented to my nostrils is a bit potent

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: May 29, 2010
These are tasty, but they dont have the right texture - more like a muffin top, moist biscuit or quickbread than a scone.

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
I took the advice and added 1/4 c extra PB and 1/4 c extra flour, couldnt be happier. I might try the 1/2 c next time, but these are still excellent.

Hamburger Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
Simple soultion to "cheese" .... Fruit Rollups! :) Some Red food gel bought right from the baking asile would look the most like ketchup, and dotting the icing would keep you from having to do the baking step. Since its so perfect of a project to do with kids, skipping the baking is probably best.

Chocolate Cavity Maker Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2009
I dont mean to sound concieted, but I rarely bring a cake in to work without getting rave reviews. This cake, however, was by far the easiest and one of the most highly regarded cakes I have ever brought in to date. I loved that it was a bundt, all I had to do with it was sprinkle a little powdered sugar... ULTRA moist! Just dont make the same mistake as me - if you have a patterned cake pan, spray it with nonstick flour well. :)

Hot Water Cornbread

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2009
not really what i was expecting. the cornmeal didnt cook very well with the boiling water so the texture was grainy and the cornbread cakes themselves were incredibly bland. there are a number of changes I would make - including working in some leavening agents and some flour to give it a lighter fexgture. i'd also probably use instant grits instead of actual corn meal to hopefully remedy the texture flaws. Other than that I'd probably spray them with some butter or oil and bake them instead - the frying is just unnecessary calories. :(

Honey Pancake Puff

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
very blank slate so you can customize this however you like. I was hoping to taste the honey or cream cheese more than you do. Essentially what you have here is somewhere between a popover and french toast. Its not at all bad, but its certainly not what I would call a pancake.

Two Tier Strawberry Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
I didnt have much time, so I used canned strawberry pie filling and whipped up the cream cheese filling for the bottom. I have used Phyllo dough for crusts as well as freezer crusts in a pinch as well, overall using those time cutting methods this is a super fast recipe.

Restaurant-Style Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2008
Phenominal. I've made this recipe for a number of years and I swear it gets better every time. I occasionally switch up the type of sausage I use and mix it up that way. I made this for a christmas soup one year and my mother is positively addicted. If I dont make it for her atleast once per year she gets upset with me. It is very much like a famous "...garden" restaurant's recipe, but I much prefer this version. A hint for those who have households that have mixed hot/mild tastes - use a little ground red pepper flakes in the ones who like it hot's bowl and nix those from the mild version.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2008
WOW - thats all I can say! I was thinking, this sounds easy and its a quiche, I can throw this together for dinner and it will be fine. But, I threw it together and served it and everyone couldnt get enough! Everyone at the dinner gave RAVE reviews, and there were people saying how if they werent so stuffed they could just devour the whole thing... Very pleasantly surprised at how well this went over. The cahnges I made - put in about 1/2 c crumbled apple cinnamon sausage, used the extra sharp low fat cheddar, and egg substitute. I didnt drain the spinach, and I used frozen pepper & onion blend. I nixed the oil (due to the sausage) and I just cooked it down until the pan was ready to be de-glazed. I will definitely make this again, if you're considering trying this recipe, GO FOR IT! :) Thank you so much for sharing this with us all!

Oven Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2008
Essentially these are flavored popovers, they're quite tasty but as other reviewers have mentioned, these do not taste like a traditional Pancake. Infact, they really shouldnt be called Pancakes at all, considering the name itself means that you are making a cake in a stovetop pan. All and all a nice mulitpurpose baked good.

Orzo and Shrimp Salad with Asparagus

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2008
Fantastic! I made a few twists because I didnt have orzo on hand, white balsamic or fresh basil so I used Orchette, regular balsamic and some dried basil. This was a HIT with my guests for dinner, super easy to prepare, gorgeous presentation and doesnt matter what temperature its served at, so its ideal for a get together. I did not cut up the shrimp or even go through the process of shelling and flavoring the pasta with the shrimp. I did, however, cook the asparagus in the same water as the pasta. For the commenter below who said their asparagus turned brown, they need to remove it from the water when its cooked and immediately put it into cold water to stop the cooking process, it wont brown if it gets shocked immediately. For depth I added some sliced grape tomatoes and some sliced black olives, and now that I've tried it both warm and cold... the flavors really come out after its been chilled overnight! When I do it again I might consider adding some small cubes of cheese, but depends what I have on hand. Try this, you won't be disappointed!

Mocha Mudslide Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2008
Im going to retry the recipe and add some salt as well as take the suggestions above on the first review. The brownies came out moist, but there is too much flour in the recipe. To compensate I toasted marshmallows under the broiler with some chocolate chips, exgtra walnuts and a bit of Hershey's syrup. I put a kaluah and powdered sugar glaze on it to give a caramelized topping effect.
