Merritt's Butternut Squash Gratin

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
Delicious! Took to a dinner party and got great reviews! Only changes I made were, I used feta instead of gruyer (because I had it in the frig) and panko for the bread crumbs. I turned the broiler on for a few minutes at the end to brown the topping. It looked lovely and had a crunch. Will make again!

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2011
Made this for daughter's birthday. Used some hints from other reviewers- added instant coffee to strong coffee to make extra strong and used as substitute for water in cake mix. Used extra Kaluah when drizzling on layers, also drizzled 1 TBS rum on middle layer along with Kaluah mixture. Delicious cake, family and guests loved it! Personally I prefer traditional tiramisu, but the cake was beautiful and yummy!

Pork Chops with Raspberry Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2011
Very good recipe- and very easy! Family loved it! I made double the sauce because I had like 8 pork chops- doubling made PLENTY of sauce! I placed the cooked chops on a platter and poured the sauce over the top. Yummy!

S'more Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2011
Made these as directed except substituted 1 1/2 c peanut butter chips for the Hershey bars (did not have them on hand). These were delicious! Followed other reviewers advice and added the topping during the last 6 min of cooking. Marshmallows were lightly browned and crackers were crisp. Yummy!

Pepperoni Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2011
Easy peasy- used prepared pizza dough from local grocery store, layered everything up, rolled it up, and baked (mine was done in like 20 min). Took it out of oven and to a friend's house covered in a kitchen towel to keep warm. This ended up being a very good thing because it actually kept some of the moisture in as it cooled and softened up the crust which had been quite hard when I took it out of oven. Great recipe- it was gone in like 15 min!! Plan to make a few at a time, then can keep one in the freezer to reheat when needed!

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
Like many reviewers, this is my go-to, no fail, always outstanding chocolate cake recipe! I have now made this at least 6 times over the past year, and no matter when or where I serve it, it's a hit! I have not tried tweeking it at all (which is not like me) because it's so good the way it is. Enjoy!

Caramel Apple Bars II

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2011
These were very good. I made some changes as some reviewers suggested: I sliced 4 Granny Smith's apples and microwaved them with a little water for 5 min to soften them up before placing on crust (don't like crispy apples in my desserts!) This worked well. They were soft after being baked in the recipe. Use 20 oz. bottle of Smucker's topping, it's the perfect amount, although after cooking it on the stove it was too thick to "pour" over the apples, it was more like "spread." Also, used 2/3 of crumb mixture for crust and 1/3 for topping as suggested by others. Will make again!

White Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2011
Delicious! I used 3 TBS butter and added about 3 cloves minced garlic, and used 3 bouillon cubes as suggested by another reviewer (did not have butter granules. ) I needed a light tasting sauce to top butternut squash ravioli. This was perfect! Loved it!

Fresh Tomato Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2011
This was very good. I made a home made crust and baked in on a rectangle pizza stone. After reading some reviews, I decided to spread pesto on the baked crust, and sauteed the onion in a frying pan with olive oil and garlic but besides that, I pretty much followed the recipe. Would make again.

Orzo and Shrimp Salad with Asparagus

Reviewed: May 1, 2011
This was far to bland for me. I was hoping for a recipe similar to an orzo and shrimp salad a work friend makes that is exceptional. I doctored this one up with dill, 2 TBS of prepared pesto, and extra fresh lemon juice. I took it to a barbecue and everyone loved it (It was better, but I still felt it needed "something").

Quick Gnocchi

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
I found this recipe labor intensive for what it was. Although we liked the gnocchi, I wouldn't make this recipe again. First, you can only make a few at a time, so we did not really get to eat as a family. We have a local brand of frozen that are just as good or better. Sorry!

Hot Buttered Rum

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
This was ok. I definitely needed more mix per cup than called for to get a good flavor. My guests likes it, so that was good! But personally, was not crazy about this.

Heart Healthy Burrito

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
I did make a few changes, just because I had stuff in the frig! I added 2/3 cup queso dip, 1/2 c sour cream, 1/2 c salsa and 1/2 c shredded cheddar cheese to the chicken and mixed it up. Then, layered as directed. I also warmed the filled burritos for 1 min in the micro to heat through, topped with salsa and sour cream. Delicious! I think this recipe would still be heart healthy because I REALLY cut back the cheddar cheese. My hubby added hot sauce to his before rolling up!

Mama's Asian Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
Delicious! I did not have the Chinese 5 spice, so I used a substitution one other reviewer suggested: 1/2 tsp. ginger, 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, and 1/8 tsp anise seed. I also did not have any orange juice, so I just left it out (I have found thru experience that there is no good substitute for OJ!) and added 1 TBS hoisin sauce, just 'cause I had it in the frig. I can see where the asian chili sauce would add a kick too, like one reviewer said, but I did not have any. I found there was plenty of sauce, I would not double. Will def make this again!

Chicken Noodle Casserole I

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
I read other reviews and decided to add some garlic powder and pepper, but not salt as the condensed soups are high in sodium already. I also added a 1/2 cup of milk to the soup/sour cream mixture and used a whole bag of cooked egg noodles. One other addition was 1/2 of a red bell pepper sauted in a little oil (for color). It was delicious!! I am so happy to have another recipe to add to my rotation! Will definitely make again (and again)!!

Sauerkraut and Smokies

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2010
I made these for a Super Bowl party, and they were a flop. Even without a ton of food around, they just did not get eaten. I tried them and found them very bland. Luckily, only made half a recipe.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
Used this last night to season some ground turkey for a recipe. It was excellent! I did not even measure too accurately, just eyeballed it! Had to add a bit of corn starch and water to thicken up the juices and make a "sauce." No more packets from the grocery store for me!

Antipasto Squares

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
Loved this!! Got creative since some reviewers said it was bland- I brushed the top layer with prepared pesto before the final layer of crescent dough and egg. It was a huge hit at my party!!

Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2008
My daughter wanted this as her "birthday pie." It was FANTASTIC!!! I did substitute a 13.5 oz. can of coconut milk and a 12 oz. can of evaporated milk for the half and half. Otherwise, followed exactly. My dad said it was "exceptional" and he has been a pie lover for 73 years!! The custard was lovely and set up nice and thick, and not too coconutty, just right. We topped it with light cool whip, and that was perfect, not too heavy. A keeper!
