No Bake Lime Mousse Torte

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2011
Hopefully I can change my rating after I make this.. Anyway, this looks amazing and I can't wait :-) I wanted to ask, to the people that have said they would just leave out the white chocolate - what will you replace it with? 9oz of stuff is a lot to take out of a recipe (one person even upped it 12!), and I can't help but think that it will change the texture/consistency of the dish. I am fairly good at distinguishing mild flavors, such as white chocolate, and would think that this is enough to come through. I think it's meant to add a little something (like a pinch of cayenne in a recipe that calls for chocolate or cinnamon), not be the star. And for those of you that had problems with the lime juice, I hope you weren't using the stuff that you squeeze out of a plastic lime. And, if you were, maybe try using key limes. I know, they're more expensive and tedious to juice - but they sure do pack a punch!

Seven Layer Tortilla Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
This was absolutely delicious! I made a few changes to suit my tastes, but this is such a great recipe in and of itself! First, I reduced the amount of cheddar and replaced it with pepper jack cheese, then I added some cumin and some smoked paprika (I REALLY like the smoky flavor - if you aren't that into it, just leave out the paprika), added 1 more TBSP of cilantro, mixed 1 small can of green chilies in with the tomatoes, added some roasted red peppers (I roasted them myself, but it can be time consuming, so you can use a jar, too), and I didn't use flour tortillas. La Tortilla Factory makes some tortillas that are a corn and flour mix. They are super delicious and I find that they hold up better than anything else in recipes that have a lot of moisture. They are small, so they'll overlap if you don't trim the centers - also a little time consuming, but SO worth it!

Beer-Baked Irish Beef

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2011
My husband and I are trying to watch our intake of saturated fats, so I left out the bacon and added a few drops of liquid smoke. It doesn't *really* replace the bacon flavor, but at least we can still get that yummy smokiness!
