English Walnut Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
I going to add one more 5 star review to this delicious pie. It's FANTASTIC! I did switch dark corn syrup for the light corn syrup and I like the added depth of flavor. I read a lot of the reviews that said they used maple syrup and I can totally see that happening and being really good, but I don't like maple. I did add an extra 1/3 cup of walnuts, but that's just my gig, I like walnuts. I really like pecan pie but it's go GAWDAWFUL sweet and rich that I can't eat more than a tiny sliver. This is not like that...it is sweet, yes, but, seriously, I could eat this whole pie...it's that good! It's great with a cup of coffee, which is what I'm doing right now. Thank you, Vivian, for submitting this delicious recipe and I'll be making another one of these for Thanksgiving.

Cream Cheese Filled Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2011
I wrote the recipe and then, after reading everyone's reviews, promptly remade it. This time I used about 3 tablespoons of powdered sugar and a teaspoon of rum extract in the cream cheese and I made an almond struesel for the top. I agree with you all, it's way better with the cream cheese sweetened and flavored. Thanks for the feedback.

Ratatouille

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2011
I have one reason and one reason only for giving this recipe 5 stars. You have done the impossible and created a recipe that #1: I actually can say that I enjoyed zucchini in (I am a zuke hater!) and #2: utilizes eggplant in a way that tastes good. I wasn't going to say that I hate eggplant, I just hadn't found any way that I liked until this recipe. I gambled on this and figured it was a 50/50 shot, my husband & I were either going to really like it or really hate it and it's a good feeling to say that we really liked it. I love the flavors of all the vegetables together. I liked how all of the veg on the upper layers leaked down and flavored the zukes and eggplant. This would be an awesome vegetarian main dish if one were to use sliced portabellos for the mushroom layer. I used chanterelle mushrooms because they are in season here and my neighbor is kind enough to give them to me. Thanks for a delicious recipe!

Campbell's® Slow Cooker Savory Pot Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
This was pretty good. I added some fresh thyme and chopped garlic and cooked it in a slow cooker bag. I followed the recipe and added only the can of soup, but if I make this again, I would add about 1/2 a can of water or beef stock just so there is some moisture to make the roast fall-apart tender.

Butternut Squash Kugel I

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2011
This was a super good recipe! I didn't use frozen squash, I roasted a whole butternut in the oven and used that instead. I used whole milk instead of non-dairy creamer because non-dairy creamer just freaks me out...I wonder if it's really a food or something concocted in a lab somewhere. I also swapped brown sugar for the white sugar. Other than that, the recipe remained the same and I and my other dinner party guests loved this recipe. Thanks for submitting it!

Nutmeg Mushrooms

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2011
I was curious. I tried. The submitter said to adjust seasonings to taste, so I made a judgement call. I'm sorry, but a tablespoon of nutmeg would have been ridiculously too much. I sprinkled a pinch over the mushrooms. First off, I did saute the mushrooms in a bit of olive oil & butter, then I used a California Chardonnay to deglaze the pan. With my modifications to the recipe, I would give this recipe 4 stars, as written, I would have given this recipe 1 star, so I split the difference.

Sri Lankan Potato Curry II

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2011
This is a really good recipe. I had to make a few changes because not all of the ingredients are available to me. I cannot find curry leaves any where around where I live and since I only found out last week that I was cooking Sri Lankan cuisine for my blog this week, there simply wasn't time to order any. I read that curry leaves are similar in appearance to bay leaves but they do, in fact, taste like curry. I subbed 1-1/2 teaspoons of curry powder instead. I used a few of my saffron threads, I didn't have powder, but I don't really think that changed the dish at all. I also had to cut back on the chile peppers because my neighbor simply can't eat spicy foods. I used one jalapeno, with the seeds and veins removed and minced it up very fine...he could eat this recipe. As this was cooking, I could totally imagine being in a Sri Lankan marketplace...the smell was amazing. The taste of dish is fantastic! Thanks for a superb recipe!

Potato Soup I

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2011
Pretty good...I never put carrots in a potato soup, I usually use chopped celery, but I put in the carrot and it was all right! I didn't use the tablespoon of bacon drippings, either...I gave the potatoes a head start in the bacon grease, so it wasn't necessary to add the fat into the soup. I also added a couple cloves of chopped garlic because potatoes and garlic do magical things when cooked together. This was a pretty recipe, thanks for submitting it!

BBQ Chicken Crescents

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2011
I made a double batch of these for dinner. I cooked the first ones according to the recipe directions and they burnt in less than 10 minutes. I cut the heat back to 325 and baked for 15 minutes on the second batch and they came out much better. These are just a bit doughy for my tastes.

Zesty Italian Crescent Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2011
This was suprisingly very good. I will make this again because this is a great base recipe to tweak. I did add sliced crimini mushrooms and 2 cloves of minced garlic, because, in my mind, Italian screams garlic. Instead of parmesan on the top with the butter, I used grated Reggianito because that's what I had on hand. The variations that you can come up with using this recipe are completely endless. Thank you, Pillsbury...you guys have a winner with this one!

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2011
I think I've reviewed this recipe before, but I'm not sure and there are a lot of reviews to scroll back through to find out...LOL! There is a reason that there are so many reviews, too...this dish is FANTASTIC! I change up just a few small things, not enough to classify as a new recipe, though. I don't have garlic salt available, so I add in 2 minced cloves and 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder along with a teaspoon of sea salt. I've made this recipe so many times and I always go back to it. I featured it in my blog http://lifeinanarv.blogspot.com I have to say that this recipe is spot-on as far as what they serve as a side dish in a Mexican restaurant, if you try it, I promise that you won't be disappointed. Thanks for a GREAT recipe! If I could rate more than 5 stars, I would...

Easy Pea Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2011
I changed this up a bit by using 12 ounces of frozen peas and mayo instead of Miracle Whip, other than that the recipe is unchanged. It's pretty tasty and I'll make it again using my tweaks. Thanks for submitting it.

Star Fruit Steak

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2011
I thought this was a fantastic tasting steak considering how easy the marinade was. Sometimes the recipes that taste the best are the simplest to make. I could not find a star fruit at any of the 3 super markets here in town, so I made a judgement call and used a mango. I know what star fruit tastes like and it would have made this an incredible recipe, hence my 5 star rating. The mango is awesome, as well, if you can't find star fruit...I used 1 for 4 steaks and it worked out perfectly. Thanks for submitting such an easy, tasty recipe...we enjoyed it very much.

Out of this World Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2011
This would be good to take to a potluck or something like that. I found it to be just ok. Cutting stars and moons from bell peppers is for the birds, so I just cut mine into thin strips. I could not find Romanseco anywhere so I used regular broccoli. I think it may need some thinly sliced red onions and cucumbers...I don't know, but it was lacking something. My dinner guest commented that this was like one of the salads that you purchase at the deli counter of the grocery store and pay big bucks for, and I think he may be right, so I will probably make this again for a crowd, but if it's just my husband and myself, I'll find another salad that's more suited to our tastes. Thanks for submitting this.

Rotisserie Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2011
I made this recipe the other night to break in our new rotisserie for our gas grill. I have to say that I've bought rotisserie style chickens from the supermarket and thought they were great, but this recipe puts them to shame!! Our chicken turned our fantastic! It was succulent, moist and perfect. I'm glad that I learned a new chicken cooking technique. Thanks for submitting this wonderful recipe, I'll be using it from now on!
