Corn Pudding I

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2012
I have been making corn pudding or casserole for a long time. I really liked this recipe for the most part. I had no red bell pepper so used chopped pimento instead & I used green onions instead of yellow onion. I also added some bacon and cheddar cheese to the topping. Its a recipe I will make again.

Pumpkin Pie Cake II

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2012
I read alot of reviews b4 making this recipe. i can't believe it got so many good reviews. For a 29 oz can of pumpkin, 1/2 cup of sugar was no way sweet enough for the filling..I had to add 1 cup of sugar and 13 cup of Stevia to get it sweet enough. There was also not enough evaporated milk for the ammt of pumpkin..I added the whole 12 oz can. I also had to add 2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice to make the flavor better. The crust, after taking out 1 cup for the topping had way too much butter in it. I would have used 1/4 cup instead of 1/2 cup and it would have been plenty. The topping was a nice addition to the recipe. I added coconut and almonds to it and it was really good. It turned out great with my tweeks..but the recipe as written wasn't good.

Fiber One® Chocolate-Peanut Butter Haystacks

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
I read alot of reviews that had some unfavorable comments, so was a little leary to make these. I made 2 versions...the original but used 1/2 semi sweet chocolate and 1/2 dark chocolate, added walnuts and a pinch of coconut on the top. They were good but I should have stuck with the semi sweet, as my family thought they tasted too rich with the dark chocolate..but they liked the walnuts and coconut in them. The other version was made with white chocolate. I added sliced almonds and craisins. Those were a hit and were the perfect blend of flavors with the Fiber One, almonds, & the tartness of the craisins & it cut the sweetness of the white chocolate. I made both batches with 1/2 the amount of chocolate and Fiber One and made them smaller. I got 4+ dozen out of a 1/2 recipe of each kind. I would make these again for sure. My 10 yr old grandson gave them 9.7 out of 10 stars.

Pumpkin Pie Cake III

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2012
This pumpkin cake was very good, altho I think I like my recipe that uses a 29 oz can pf pumpkin better, as it has a better pie filling to topping ratio & makes it more pumpkin pie-ish. I like the use of brown sugar and more spice than the norm. I always dbl the spice in my pumpkin pie. Since I only had a 15 1/2 oz can of pumpkin, this is the recipe I used. I didn't have pecans or walnuts so used sliced almonds instead and added flaked coconut for some crunch. I cut the melted butter back to 3/4 cup. It was served with fresh whipped cream and it tasted delicious.

Thanksgiving Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2012
I wanted to use up my leftover holiday gravy, dressing and dried cranberries from the freezer, so decided to try this recipe with these changes. I used the ground turkey, eggs, some dressing(since it already had moisture add, I omitted the milk), then added dried cranberries and added more seasoning & sage, as many reviewers recommended. After baking, I served turkey gravy over it with mashed potatoes, the rest od the dressing, & a side salad. It put me in the mood for Thanksgiving dinner so I made Pumpkin Pie Cake III from AR for dessert. yummm!

Slow Cooker Beef and Mushroom Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2012
I am giving this recipe 4 stars because there were several changes I made to the recipe. There was not enough salt as some reviewers said..so I seasoned the meat with salt, pepper and garlic powder before coating with flour and browning in the oil(not enough). I didn't have a roast or stew meat so used carne adada meat(thin and cut in strips) so it only took 3 hrs to cook, 1 on high and 2 on low...I also didn't have the condensed soup, red wine, pearl onions or regular mushrooms or carrots, so I used beef broth, sherry wine, chopped onions and portabello mushrooms and baby carrots. I found it needed alot more liquid than stated. I was really glad I had homemade beef broth on hand. It smelled amazing while it was cooking and tasted great for dinner. I served it over egg noodles and the family all loved it.

Maple and Ginger Baked Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
I made these beans to go with my smoked chicken dinner. I did a quick soak on the GN beans and then cooked an hour as per directed. Next time I would not cook that long b4 going into the slow cooker, but mine cooks sort of hot. I subed the salt pork for 1/2 lb browned bacon. I tasted them after a cpl hrs and added a little more mustard & ginger. My family all loved them and I will make them again.

Amaretto Cheesecake III

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2012
The flavor of this cheesecake is great but after reading reviews, and knowing I like a thicker cheesecake, I decided to double the filling ingredients. I topped it with a bag of frozen bing cherries and it was heaven on a plate. Yummm
