Absolutely delicious! I have everyone hooked on sweet potato pie now, and they're clammering for the recipe too :)

Fresh Strawberry Pie I

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2005
Definitely only enough for one pie! I thought this was absolutely delicious... with a few adjustments :) I followed the advice of others and reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup and sliced my strawberries (they were from the farmer's market, so they were different sizes). I also added a lemony cream cheese layer on the bottom which was a fantastic counterpoint to the sweetness. One more thing- homemade crust and real whipped cream are an absolute MUST with this recipe. Store bought crust and Cool Whip just won't cut it... Everyone was absolutely raving and wanted the recipe immediately!

Irish Car Bomb II

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
This is one of my favorite ways to start out a night of revelry! DEFINITELY use Jameson, Baily's and Guiness. It's not nearly as good any other way!

Honey Glazed Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2007
This was fabulous, but I did make a few additions/changes. I love sesame oil, but reduced it to 1 tablespoon. I added garlic and a little ginger, marinated for just over an hour (my boyfriend couldn't wait any longer :), and it turned out FABULOUS! I didn't have to cook it as long at 350 either, maybe just 20-25 minutes and it was perfect. I served it with white rice and balsamic glazed carrots. Yummy!!

Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2007
I'm not much of a pecan pie fan, but it's my boyfriend's favorite. He LOVED it after being skeptical at first because it wasn't what he was used to :)

Creamy Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2008
I used to say I don't like split pea soup, but I'm converted now! It's my boyfriend's favorite soup which is why I made it, and he absolutely LOVED this recipe. I used only 3 strips of good thick bacon and 1/2 and 1/2 instead of cream to lighten it up just a smidge. Absolutely delicious!

MMMMM... Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2008
Definitely a GREAT quick brownie recipe, especially when you don't have cocoa around! Pretty fudgy, just how I like it , and I took another reviewers recommendation to add some extra chips to the batter so it was chunky. Yum!

Classic Waffles

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2008
Wow! Fabulously quick to make, absolutely tasty, and much better than the more difficult recipes I've been using. I like my waffles spiced and add almost 1 tsp. of cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. nutmeg, and 1/4 tsp. cardamom. Mmmm... writing this makes me crave them again!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2008
Deliciously warm and perfect out of the oven, but despite being in sealed plastic containers they were only so-so the next day. I'll probably make them again though but freeze half the dough and eat a half-batch at a time warm!

Oh. My. God. I can't keep popcorn kernals in the house all the time because we can't stop making it when we do! So dang tasty...

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: May 30, 2008
Outstanding. I had lost my old pancake recipe and am now thankful I did- this one is 10 times better. Bring your milks and eggs to room temp before, just barely mix everything together, and you will have the most fluffy pancakes ever :)

Carrot Souffle

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
Outstanding with a few changes recommended by others. I used 1/4 cup white sugar and a 1/4 cup brown, instead of a full cup of white. I also added about a teaspoon of cinnamon and crushed pecans on the top before baking. Delicious!

Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
I cut the sugar in half and was really pleased with the result. Funny side note, I was a little tired when mixing this and added the flour into the mixture instead of the topping. It actually turned out a little souffle like and was lovely :) Big hit at Thanksgiving!

Balsamic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2010
I used plain balsamic vinegar and it was *outstanding*. Sometimes I add just a dab of honey, but not always. It's even better the next day when the flavors have a chance to blend. We almost always have a bottle going now, and I will never buy it at the store again :)

Taqueria Style Tacos - Carne Asada

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2011
The absolute bomb. When you're craving taco truck carne asade (which to me translates to more authentic), this is THE go-to recipe. I buy carne asada steaks, make up a batch of the marinade and then Seal-A-Meal several packages of a few servings each so it makes a quick and easy dinner once thawed.

Triple the Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
Groan!!! Oh so good! If you don't at least REALLY like ginger, don't bother making them :) I chop the crystallized ginger pretty finely, but even the occasional bigger chunk is still lovely and delicious to me. My boyfriend is not a huge gingersnap fan, but I couldn't keep his hand out of the cookie jar after making these!

Maple Pecan Pie II

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2014
I made this for my pecan pie loving family as I don't like pecan pie. I now love THIS pecan pie, and this one only! Holy smokes the filling (I used my own crust) is incredible...

Candy Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2014
Delish!!! Followed suggestions in the reviews- made sure the whites were really stiff and I baked them about 30 minutes. I tried adding cocoa powder to the mix, and wow!! I also found stirring them right out of the oven and sprinkling more sugar/cocoa while there was still a tiny bit of moisture gave them a tasty powdery coating. For future baking I want to try cinnamon and also a second coating and round of baking for a candy coating. Will probably rotate through the options just for tasty variety as the powdery finish was fabulous too :)
