Layered Eggplant Hamburger Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2012
I gave this 4 stars because I made changes. This is a great dish, true comfort food. We love eggplant so to start with I cut the slices thicker, at 1/4 inch they bake to mush, mine were 1/2 inch or a bit more. I also used my own marinara sauce and used a mix of ground beef and sweet Italian sausage. I skipped the onion slices in between the layers completely, they serve no real purpose and add nothing to the casserole. I used bread crumbs on top mixed with a hefty amount of good grated parmesan, in between the layers I added a nice layer of mozzarella and provolone cheese and no bread crumbs. I baked this for 45 minutes covered at 350, then uncovered for 20 at 400. 80-90 minutes in the oven as the recipe calls for is too long. It is unnecessary to salt and allow eggplant to sit to get rid of the bitter, especially when using a cooking method such as this.

Sweet Potato Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2009
Nice basic idea, however sweet potato pie has NO cinnamon, so that was omitted and only nutmeg and mace were used as is traditional. I also use no real measurement for heavy cream or half and half instead of milk, you only add what you need and depending on the moisture content of the potatoes it is different every time. Milk isn't rich enough. I also bake much like a pumpkin, raising the heat to 425 or so for about 10-15 minutes then lowering for the rest of the baking time. It's a good basic idea and with a few tweaks became incredible!

Self-Filled Cupcakes I

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2008
No alterations, I made as directed and they turned out great. Both kids and husband loved them, used chocolate cheese frosting from here to frost. Yummmmm, great way to use a mix and make it more like homemade. I found no need to add mini chips to the filling when using a good chocolate frosting.

Sour Cream Apple Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2007
Overall this is a very nice pie. Like apples and cream, a nice change from apples, cinnamon, and nutmeg. I would suggest thinly slicing the apples or chopping them finely as a rough chopped apple doesn't quite get done, or using a softer apple. I used Granny Smiths and it was just too hard. The flavor was incredible however so next time I will just cut them smaller. I did double the amount of apples used and I didn't use all of the topping, I will halve that next time, and there will be a next time so I gave it 4 stars.
