Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
This was great! I have tried many many recipes over the years for cornbread and this was by far the best I have ever made. I do add an additional egg to mine and a bit of butter

Peppermint Pinwheels

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
These are very pretty cookies and although they do have good flavor I gave them a lower marking due to the difficulty in rolling the dough. Mine was not dry but I had a heck of a time getting it to roll out to the correct size. I rolled mine between sheets of plastic wrap.

Asparagus Cheese Strata Main Dish

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2007
I've been making this recipe for a long time and everyone seems to love it. The only difference I make in the recipe is to use Swiss cheese rather than the cheddar.

Featherlight Scones

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2007
I absolutely love these scones their nice and moist alot better than other recipes that I have tried that have turned out like rocks. I have used this recipe for years and have used different things in them to change it up. My husbands favorite is mini chocolate chips added to the batter. I also like to use currants or craisins. The batter is a little sticky but I use a scone pan which really works well just pusing the batter down into the slots. If you don't have a scone pan just use a simple ice cream scoop and flatten them a bit on some parchment paper quick and easy!

Dilly Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2007
I have made these many times over the years and everyone always asks for the recipe. The only suggestion that I have to make is make sure you bake them long enough because the center has a tendancy to not get done all the way through and you can also loosly tent some foil over the top if they get too dark. I use real onion and grate it and it works well.

Spicy Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2007
I love this recipe and have been making a version of it for years. I like to add about 1/4 tsp. of cumin just because I like the taste and instead of kidney beans I use black beans. If I want to make this an entire meal I take 1/2 of a pound of hamburger and the onion first then follow the rest of the directions by adding broth and lentils.

Canned Apple Pie Filling

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2007
I would have given this 5 stars but it uses cornstarch and I prefer using something called Clear Jel it can be purchased on the Internet give it a try it is far superior in the looks and texture also it holds up better than the cornstarch. The apples will still be crisp when you open the jar but leave the jars sit a few months before opening them they have better flavor the longer it sits the better it tastes. I add additional cinnamon and some pumpkin pie spice to mine and I do not use the nutmeg since it's not my favorite spice. I quart works nicely for a pie or for an 8x8 pan of apple crisp. I always use 1 inch of head space for this because otherwise it will boil over on you and the jars won't want to seal properly.

Italian Creme Layer Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2007
This is a great recipe. I made it for my husbands birthday and now he requests it for every special occasion. I would use the parchment paper in the bottom of the pans to ensure that the cakes don't stick I neglected to do this the 1st time and did have some problems removing them from the pans. I followed this recipe exactly as it was written.

Rugelach

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2007
I just made these and the dough is a dream to work with. It rolled out so nicely and to make sure that I was making a 12 inch circle; I rolled it out and used a pot cover that was 12 inches and went around that with a pizza cutter. I did mine exactly as the recipe stated and using the food processor was a snap. Next time I'm going to experiment a bit with the mixture I think for our tastes a tad sweeter would be nice and I want to try some raspberry jam in them as well with some white chocolate.

Vanilla Crepes

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2007
These were very good however I prefer a sweeter batter so added extra sugar to mine. Great way to use up extra egg yolks left over from other recipes.

Chicken and Mushroom Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2008
I actually would give this 4 1/2 stars but since they don't have that option I will go with 4. My husband loved this recipe I made mine a bit larger by adding more broth and rice and since I had a can of evaporated milk on hand that was opened I used that instead of the milk.

Asparagus and Ham Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
My husband loved this I did make a few changes though I used 1 1/2 cups milk and 2 cups of cheese one was cheddar the other swiss. I had to use frozen asparagus since thats all I had on hand and cooked that a tiny bit before cutting and adding to rest of ingredients.

Emily's Famous Hash Browns

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2008
Finally a hashbrown recipe my husband loves. He will rarely eat hasbrowns but when I make these I even catch him in the fridge later eating them cold. I didnt have any fresh potatoes on hand but did have one of those bags of preshredded potatoes the kind that arent frozen in the green bag and they worked just great!

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2008
This was so good I followed others instructions and doubled just about everything and made 2 layers of coffee flavored cake rather than the one. I diluted the coffee in some hot water before adding so it colored nicely. I used about 3/4 cup of coffee to brush accross the layers and turned them upside down so they soaked in really well. I didnt have mascarpone so used the other suggestion for the cream cheese. The only real difference I made other than others suggestion was to add 2 TBSP of instant vanilla pudding to the whipped cream when I was whipping it for the frosting made it stand up really well. After 5 days it still looked good believe it or not.

Mexican Chicken Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2008
Out of this world delicious. I have been asked for this recipe several times and it's a new favorite on our table. If you don't have cream style canned corn or have an issue with it you can take a regular can of corn and put it in the food processor and grind it up with about half the juice from the can and it works very well.

Fabulous Orange Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2008
I really liked the texture of this cake. Bundt cakes to me always seem so dry but this one is nice and moist on the inside. I used the chocolate cake mix and also the chocolate pudding. I then used the mini semi sweet chocolate chips. I only gave it a 4 star rating because even though I used grand marnier I still did not taste the orange in the recipe. Next time Im going to add some orange oil or perhaps some orange zest.
