Irresistible Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2005
We did a taste test this Thanksgiving. I used this recipe and "Pecan Pie V" and a good local bakery. This was by far the best. Everyone loved this one. It made the bakery one taste terrible. This is a keeper!!! This is a pecan pie that has lots of flavor.

Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2005
We did a taste test this Thanksgiving. I used this recipe "Irrisistable pecan pie" and a good local bakery. This was by far the least favorite of them all. It was more custardy than the rest. Plus I did add extra pecans and it was still not enough. It is a pecan pie!!! If you can not have corn syrup then I could see why you would use this recipe. But if you have no problems with it stick with the other recipes...

Beth's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2005
Pretty good chocolate chip cookies. I did end up using butter flavored crisco. They are soft and fluffy. Make sure you mix it well enough. Plus they are not very sweet.

Chicken Milano

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2005
This was a great meal, everyone loved it and even wanted to see the recipe. The sauce for me was not runny but you definatly have to let it boil for a long time to get it thickened (that could be due to my substitutions!). I followed some of the others recommendations. I doubled the sauce (It could have even used more). I used 1 % milk (2 cups) and 2 tsp of cornstarch instead of heavy cream. Plus I did not have sundried tomatoes in the house so, I cut up tomatoes (3 roma) and cooked them in the oven for 20 minutes (I checked them every 5 minutes and mixed them around). Plus, I added fresh mushrooms, fresh spinach, and scallions to it (cooked seperatly after the chicken and then added it to the chicken). My husband loved it and wants me to added it as a regular dish. Next time I make it I will add a little wine to the sauce and parmasan cheese.

Beef Bourguignon I

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2005
My husband loved it. I did not use Burgundy wine, bacon, or the brandy. I used blush wine instead. I did double the sauce..

Basic Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2004
I am not overly impressed. I only used 3 cups of powdered sugar and it still was too sugary and not enough cream cheese. I like cream cheese frosting to taste like cream cheese and not powdered sugar. I am going to keep looking for a good cream cheese frosting recipe.

Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Pasta Shells

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2004
I have never made stuffed shells. It was very easy and I used some of the recommendations, added a can of mushrooms, added 3/4 cups of shredded cheese. I did not add fennel. We liked it (my 3 year old even liked it).

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2004
Unfortunatlly they were not as good as I was hoping for. The topping out powers the muffin. I only made half of the topping. Definatly needed more blueberries. I would also add vanilla to them. Don't forget to put a pan under the muffins (the topping can make a mess in your oven if you fill it like they tell you).

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2004
I thought it was good. I served it to some guests and they wanted the recipe. I am still looking for the perfect crisp! But this will do until then.... Next time I would reduce the amount of sugar on the apples...

Challah I

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2004
It was good not great. For me it seems like it is missing something (my memory of good challa was at my grandma's house), I am not sure what! Cook time was only 20 minutes. When I make it again I think I will add a bit more honey and an extra egg. But, it is very easy to make. Me and my twin 3 year olds were able to make it with no problems....I made it again with an extra egg in the dough and it was wonderful....

Walnut Pie Crust

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2004
I have only tried this once and I used it with a tripleberry pie filling (I would not suggest this crust for that). It is a great crust and I want to use it again with a chocolate pie filling or maybe even apple... I like the nuts!

Chicken Monterey

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2004
It was more on the salty side than I like. But everyone seemed to like it. My husband would like me to make it again. I doubled the mushroom mixture and used half the amount of chicken and we still wanted more of the sauce mixture. Next time I will triple the mushroom mixture. I only used 2 Tbls of butter (one for each frying). Next time I probably wont use any and just use cooking spray.

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2004
It is nice to have a quiche without a crust. It was just great. Everyone really liked it. This is a nice vercitile recipe where you can really add whatever you like. To reduce the calories you can use low fat cottage cheese and it works just as well....I will use this recipe again!!!

Chocolate Bar Fondue

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2004
This is a nice basic chocolate recipe. I have used similar over the years and just needed the basic portions of chocolate to cream. I used semi-sweet chocolate chips (24 oz) and 1 cup heavy whipping cream and a little vanilla. I did not use the coffee, I am sure it would taste great with it but with company I wasn't sure if everyone liked coffee. And I didn't add the extra surar. We dipped pound cake, strawberries, marshmellows, banannas, apples, and pretzels (not a big winner). If your fondue winds up a little thick add a little heavy whipping cream and thin it to the consistancy you like. If it is too thin add more chocolate!!!

Cream Cheese Pound Cake III

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2004
This was definatly over rated. The reason why I gave it as 2 star is because 3 stars is average and I may use the recipe again. This recipe I will not use again. I would try another pound cake recipe. For me it was way too sweet and it didn't taste buttery, how I like my pound cakes to taste. Plus it is not worth the calories! I would much rather eat something else with all those calories and fat!! The one good thing about this cake was that it tastes better as it ages. Another words wait a couple of days and then serve it.
