Black Forest Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2014
I made this for my son for his 26th birthday and he loved it! I made 3 layers with 9 inch pans. And they were done in about 15-17 minutes. I wasn't fond of the idea of crumbling cake to decorate with, that didn't sound pretty at all. Instead I made chocolate curls using a vegetable peeler and a King Size Hershey bar (it's wider than a reg. size bar). I found "Tart" canned cherries at Walmart. The cans were smaller than 20 oz. but 2 cans made plenty. It's not a cheap cake to make, nor was it quick to make, but for a special occasion, this is worth it. Make it all from scratch, don't cheat on any of it, otherwise, what's the point of making a cake from a recipe? Note: the filling does take a while to thicken! And you need to heat it a little more towards a med. temp., not on low temp. as the recipe suggests.

Japanese Style Deep Fried Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2013
I made this for my husband for his Birthday, he said it was the best fried shrimp he'd ever had! It was delicious and had a nice crunch to it! No changes needed. For best results fry in batches and keep warm in an oven or toaster oven until frying is complete. Thank you for this recipe!

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
Awesome recipe, thank you! Small changes to adapt to what was on hand: I used a large can of whole tomatoes and cut into small pieces instead of fresh tomatoes. I used liquid from the can instead of water, and I used 1/2 tsp of dried basil instead of fresh, and added dried parsley at the same time too. I added extra carrots and zucchini too. Awesome recipe!! Quickly a family favorite!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2012
This looks intimidating, but don't be afraid to try it. It takes some time, but it is well worth it! What a great way to celebrate a special occasion or prepare for guests.

Russian Tea Cakes I

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2011
Oh my, these are so good! I made one batch to share with those I work with and quickly regretted not doubling it to have more to "sample." : ) I also recommend rolling them in powdered sugar while they are very warm, and again a few minutes later. I received rave reviews at work, perfect recipe, thanks for posting it!

Chocolate Mint Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2011
I doubled the recipe to make cookies for those I work with as well as a few neighbors. I used a Tablespoon to measure each ball so they would all be the same size and yielded about 125 cookies. So, one recipe (unless you make gigantic cookies) should make about 60 or more nice size cookies. They are delicious too! I got rave reviews for sure! Don't skimp on chill time, the longer the better. And don't crowd the pan, they'll look nicer if they don't cook together.

Andrea's Pasta Fagioli

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2011
Recipe is great, but would recommend a few changes. I used 4 cups of chicken broth and the rest I used water. Another can of beans would be a great addition. I used the advice of others and kept the pasta and soup separate until serving, and kept remaining leftovers separate as well and mixed when reheating. One pound of pasta was too much, I'll reduce to 3/4 pound next time.

Peanutty Caramel Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2011
I was looking for a recipe to use up some Cheerios and Peanut Butter I had gotten a great deal on and stumbled across this one. Boy, am I glad I did! (And my family too! :). These are very addicting. Consider yourself forewarned. : )

Absolute Mexican Cornbread

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2010
Not a crumb left! I cut the recipe in half and baked in a large cast iron skillet at 325 for about 35 minutes and it was perfect. I added chopped fresh jalapeno, omitted the sugar, and used a little more green chilies than it called for. I may cut back on the butter a little next time, but this was really good and a huge hit with family and a dinner guest.

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake VII

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2010
Awesome! I made this last night for the first time, and it was perfect. I used Yellow cake mix, and instead of using all water in the cake mix, I used all available Pineapple juice from the can and then finished off the remaining balance of liquid with water. I couldn't fit all of the mix into my large cast iron skillet, so I made a couple of cupcakes too. The cake was flawless, and my husband, son, and his girlfriend and I about consumed the whole thing!

Clark's Quiche

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2010
I made this for a special Valentine breakfast for my husband and it was awesome! Heed all warnings to use a deep dish, it won't fit otherwise. The only change I made, besides cutting the recipe in half, was I mixed the Bacon mixture with the Spinach/Sour Cream mixture and was happy with that result. Thanks for the great recipe!

Crab-Stuffed Filet Mignon with Whiskey Peppercorn Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
SAUCE REVIEW ONLY: Yes, it takes a long time, but it is not involved. It really is worth it, great sauce! I prepared it for Valentine's Day for my husband and served with a Filet Mignon, Roasted Asparagus, Baked Potato, and Crab Cakes (I opted to make a different Crab Cake recipe to serve verses stuffing the steak with the Crab Stuffing). Next time I will prepare the sauce with a Boneless Ribeye as the Filet Mignon isn't what makes it special. You really should try the sauce recipe, you won't be disappointed. Just allow at least 2 1/2 hours for it to do its thing. And I did heed warnings and used lower sodium Beef Broth. Was a good idea indeed.

Green Bean and Mushroom Medley

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2009
Great recipe, I make it for big family gatherings by doubling the recipe. I would caution against using as much of the 'salt' additives. I forgot that this past Thanksgiving and it was really overpowering.

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
My husband and I made this recipe for the first time as a appetizer for dinner guests. What a hit!! We used 1/2 mayo and 1/2 sour cream, and topped it with shredded mild cheddar and baked it. Next time will stir in the cheddar instead so every bite has cheddar and dips easier too.
