Persimmon Pudding Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2012
This is definitely a pudding (as in plum pudding) and not a 'cake' as most would think of it. My persimmons were a bit dry and didn't quite make the volume of pulp so I added applesauce and it was very good. My only problem was that the flaming brandy I added didn't flame. Oh well, so much for presentation, but it was delicious.

Slow Cooker Ground Beef

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2011
I would give this a much higher rating were it not for the artificial sweetener that someone added to the recipe. Splenda is not a stable sweetener at all. Depending on what else is in the recipe it can go from exceedingly sweet to bitter. Lose the Splenda and go for 1/2 cup brown sugar instead. Decrease the catsup to 1 cup and be sure and use lean ground beef. A very good basic recipe with those changes.

Baked Chayote Squash

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2011
Hate to say it but I agree with previous reviewer. This isn't the best way to eat this squash. There are a couple of things one can do to make it better with spices---and whipping. But for the effort-make twice baked potatoes instead. It won't be any more calories and better flavor. (Just an aside-I enjoy Chayote, particularly fresh or lightly stirfried and it has a marvelous taste all its own.)
