Savoiardi I

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2012
These lady fingers turned out perfect for my tiramisu. What I changed- I poured all of the batter into a 9x13 baking dish. I took it out of the oven 2 minutes early because the top was a beautiful brown and I didn't want to ruin it. I took it out of the pan (used parchment paper for easy removal) and turned it over. Placed it back into the oven to give the bottom a nice color. A true Classic tiramisu uses a harder lady finger so I wanted it to be a little firmer. These were perfect! Thank you for this recipe. I've been looking for a long time.

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2011
Wish I read the bad reviews on this before I bothered making this. I figured since it had so many great reviews I didn't need to bother with the not so good ones. I have learned a lesson. This pumpkin bread recipe has WAY TOO MUCH nutmeg. My family loves nutmeg and cinnamon but this was insanely too much. You couldn't taste the pumpkin at all and the mix of spices just gave it a weird flavor. This would be a great recipe if you only used 1 teaspoon of nutmeg and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. I will definitely stick to my other recipe I got on allrecipes for pumpkin bread. It has never failed me! If you haven't tried Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread I highly suggest you do. It is wonderful!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2011
This is by far the best pumpkin bread I've made. After so many times making this exactly as written I've made a few changes just to suit my familys dietary needs. I use half white flour and half whole wheat flour. And omit the oil and use applesauce in place of. The results are just as fabulous. Thank you Laurie for posting this recipe. My family will enjoy this for many more years to come.

No Beans About It - Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2005
I made this for my husband since he won't eat beans in chili. It turned out pretty good. BUT, it would probably be a better recipe if used as a thick spagetti sauce. The recipe isn't spicy at all and needs about double the spices of what the recipe actually calls for. I have to give it 4 stars cause it does taste good. I'll make it again but for spagetti instead ... not chili.

Ronaldo's Beef Carnitas

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2005
WOW! This was incredible! I was scared to use all the green chilis but next time I will. My husband normally doesn't eat leftovers but in this case he made an exception. Even my children ate it. Thank you so much!

Tiramisu Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2012
I have made this a few times now. The recipe as written is good, but could easily be a 5 star recipe with a few minor changes. The changes I made was what others have mentioned. It really needs more coffee flavored liqueur (I like Baileys the best so far). At least double the amount the recipe calls for. Half in the lady fingers crust and half in the cheesecake mix. For the lady fingers I used Savoiardi I recipe from here. Excellent and easy recipe! It worked well for the crust. I also added about 1/4 cup of espresso (half in the crust, half in the mix). It has more of a tiramisu flavor with the changes made. If you have access to coffee syrup (made in Rhode Island) it is a wonderful addition to drizzle a little bit on top just before serving.

Creamy Vanilla Ice Cream

Reviewed: May 21, 2011
This is absolutely wonderful! I wouldn't call it ice cream ... it is more of a frozen custard. But, whatever you want to call it, it is definitely a winning recipe. Very simple to make, very rich and creamy. Exactly what we were looking for. So far this is our favorite recipe. Thank you for sharing Mary!

Miracle Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
My family likes this recipe. My kids don't like green beans. But, they will eat this. The only thing I change is I use plain french fried onions. Thank you!

Baked Ziti IV

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2014
I made this for a group of hungry teens. I doubled the recipe and was able to feed 18 teens and most of them were able to have a second helping. This recipe makes a lot as is. This was exactly what I needed. Everyone loved it.

Whipped Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2012
This dish was an instant family favorite. It was very light in texture and not too sweet compared to most typical southern sweet potato casseroles that we are used to. As another reviewer suggested: taste it as you go. Add only half the sugar, oj and nutmeg. I did this helpful hint (thanks MomTo6) and found I liked the recipe as written but I felt the need to add a little cinnamon. We love spices so the cinnamon and nutmeg were a hit in this dish. We will make this every year. Thank you for the recipe Bea!

Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2010
My family LOVES this recipe. I'm feeding 3 picky kids and a husband who is even worse. The only changes in this recipe is I use orange juice instead of the sherry and I use olive oil with a pat of butter instead of vegetable oil. It's so hard to find a recipe that everyone in my house likes. This one definitely takes care of that. Thank you for sharing the recipe, Anne Marie! This is family favorite.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
A little taste of this cake can take care of a chocolate fix really quick. My son and I made this cake for his birthday. He was more than pleased with the outcome. We made this cake and used the Rich Chocolate Frosting recipe to top it off. So wonderful! Everyone loved it! However, I did have to change the recipe and "lighten" it up a bit. I did what another reviewer suggested by exchanging veg oil for applesauce, sour cream for fat free, egg whites, and used fat free - sugar free pudding mix. It tasted so sinful ... just a little healthier than the original.

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
This was so easy and wonderfully delicious! My son wanted chocolate cake with chocolate icing for his birthday. This was easy enough for him to make. Everyone loved it and was amazed how great it tasted. We made a two layer 9in cake and cut the recipe in half as others said. It was PLENTY. Thank you for the recipe!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2008
This was amazing! My kids even ate it all up. I did exchange the beer for chicken broth since we didn't have any beer on hand. It turned out excellent. Wish I lived in colder climate so I could enjoy this soup more often.

This was incredible! I've never made a pumpkin pie that didn't come out of a can. I'm so glad I picked this recipe to try. I even used fat free evaporated milk and it turned out perfect.
