Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2003
Oh my, this pecan pie was outstanding! I am not too big on pecan pie, but my husband and my mother are. I mostly made it for my husband to accompany a very southern meal. He was in love with it! I too didn't have dark corn syrup on hand so I used light corn syrup and also I used 1/4 of a cup less sugar than it calls for because personally I am not too into very sweet Pecan Pie and it turned out VERY delicious. Try it!

White Chocolate Cheesecake with White Chocolate Brandy Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2006
WOW!!! I made this for a party we went to...I should have made two! It was marvelous. Of course everyone adds their own touch...I made mine with a chocolate graham cracker & shortbread cookie crust & also I added 3/4 tsp. brandy & 1/4 tsp. vanilla to it, since I didn't make the sauce. I didn't get much of the brandy flavor in the cheesecake, so I think next time I'll do a whole teaspoon. Everyone at the party told me I should have made more & some were trying to convince me to make them one just for themselves! It was yummy & went quick!

Penne with Mushrooms

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2006
Loooooove this recipe. It is quick, fast and good. I added a little bit of salt to the water when I boiled the pasta and I also added red pepper flakes to it. It was excellent.

Shredded Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
This is a keeper! Didn't have green onions or pine nuts (not that I would use the pine nuts), so I added some chopped red onion & about 1 tsp. chives. I also added 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes w/ the brussel sprouts & onions & some grated Parm. Cheese when I served it. It was excellent. My picky 5 yo really liked these. Don't be afraid to try them even if you *think* you won't like them.

Stacey's Fabulous Purple Potato Gratin

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2006
First off, yum! Okay I had purple potatoes once at my parents house a few summers ago, and I fell in love. My mom had grilled them but I didn't have enough purple potatoes to grill (I also purchased them in a mixed bundle at Trader Joes), so I thought I'd try this recipe. OMG, soooo good. I couldn't follow the recipe to the T because I didn't have everything it called for but these were the changes I made: 1.) I used about 8 small/medium potatoes (not petite) purple, red & white; 2.) Instead of flour, I put them in a paper bag and tossed them with about 1/4 c. Louisianna Seasoned Chicken Fry; 3.) I didn't have leeks so I used 3 green onions instead; 3.) I didn't have goat cheese, so I too used cheddar (however I didn't measure it!). OMG, this was the best Potato Gratin I've ever had. I loved it! I think the Seasoned Chicken Fry really made the difference. I never added any salt and this tasted just fine.

Dad's Pan-Fried Green Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2006
This was a good recipe. I did as some of the other reviewers suggested and cut down the soy sauce to 2 T instead of 3 (I also don't like my food to taste too much like soy sauce). I didn't have whole fresh green beans on hand, instead I used a bag of 1 lb. frozen french cut GB and they turned out good. I have a family of six and this was our only side with our dinner so we had just enough for all of us to have one good serving.

Bob's Awesome Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2006
I make a "version" of this lasagna, with exactly the same ingredients (plus an egg for the cottage cheese). I don't add any sauce to the meat, instead I add 1/2 cup of sauce to the bottom of the pan, then I add the rest of the spagetti sauce to the top of the lasagna. I think what makes this lasagna so good is that it is very simple and the most picky eatter will even like it. It's not by any means plain, tastes great and is so easy to make.

Restaurant-Style Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2006
The soup was yummy! I added a few more potatoes and used two different kind, red and purple potatoes. It was a fantastic soup. Very much like TOG's Zuppa Toscana. Would definately make this soup again.

Cheesy Potato Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2006
LOOOOOVE IT! I don't care for your regular run of the mill potato salad, so this was a REALLY nice change. I've made it several times.

Snow Flakes

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2005
This is probably the best Spritz Recipe I have tried. I had a little bit of trouble with the cookie press because I grated the orange rind too big. Next time I will make sure I grind it finer. I made snow flake shapes and I dipped them in powdered sugar ~ it added a little something extra...yummy! I will definately make these again.

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2005
This was pretty good. I thought it needed a little bit of salt, but it was still good overall. I have few recipes I make "by the book", so of course I added my touch to it and added 2 garlic cloves, 1/4 cup chopped onion and 1 tablespoon fresh thyme & parsley to the butter/oil before I added the chicken. It turned out yummy!

Hershey's ® 'Perfectly Chocolate' Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2005
Man, this cake was awesome!!! I also used coffee instead of just hot water. It gave it a little extra I think. Everyone loved it. I wrapped the left overs in plastic wrap and it stayed sooooo moist! Yummy :o)

Creamy Caramel Flan

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2005
My aunt (who by the way is Mexican :o)), has been making the same recipe for many, many years. It is a family staple at all of our gatherings. Infact if she shows up with out it, we all revolt! LOL Anyway, the only difference in hers is that she puts all the ingredients in the blender and puts it on high for about 30 seconds or until well blended. Less clean up and quick too.

Green Bean Casserole I

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2005
Can't go wrong with a Classic! I don't like my casserole to be so juicy so I usually add three cans instead of 2 & a tad bit more salt. We love it! Try this with the Cheddar Cheese French Fried Onions, it's awesome!

Awesome Broccoli-Cheese Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2005
I made this a few times long ago and hadn't added it to my Recipe Box, only made it using a printed paper, which I lost. The family has been wanting this for a while now, so finally I made the time to look through all of the Brocolli Caseroles on here to find it. I'm glad I did! I just don't understand why so many people gave this recipe 1, 2 & 3 stars! This tastes awesome. I do make two changes: 1. like a lot of the other reviewers, I mix 1/2 cup mayo & 1/2 cup sour cream in place of the full cup of mayo but that is only because my husband HATES mayo so I have to do that to all of our mayo recipes; & 2. I add about 1 cup of cheese more. Thanks for such an awesome recipe Stacey! Everyone in my family from a one year old to - well lets just say someone in their 30's - loves this!

Almond Sandies

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2013
These are some of the best cookies I have ever made. I really like the way they turned out even though I don't really care for almond extract because to me it's got a really fake taste. I do use the almond extract but I also throw in about 1/2 tsp. of vanilla extract. Totally yummy...and HIGHLY addicting!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2005
Man this was soooooooo good! My husband and I enjoyed it so much. I made two changes: 1. I substituted half of the mayo with low fat sour cream & 2. I didn't have celery salt so I sprinkled in some celery seed instead. Can't wait to make it for the kiddos, I know they will love it cause it tastes nothing like fish! Don't be afraid to try it.
