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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hershey's ® 'Perfectly Chocolate' Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2008
This is a fantastic cake I have made this for years. I also add coffee to my hot water to intensify the chocolate flavor. I have also substituted some of the milk in the frosting for coffee liquor.

Chrissy's Sweet 'n' Sour Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2011
Loved it something a bit different. I heated the liquids just a bit to break down the sugar, I also used a sweeter onion.

Teriyaki Marinade

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2010
Loved it I only had time to marinade for 6 hours next time Ill do it over night. I heated the marinade a bit so the sugar melted. I also used a small fresh onion and 4 cloves of garlic chopped instead of dried and instead of water I used orange juice...it was fantastic better than that stuff I have been paying big bucks for.

Braunschweiger Spread

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.

Peanut Butter Bars I

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2012
I loved these and they work great for peanut butter cups as well. If I make them in bar fashion I only use about 1 1/2 sticks of butter. I always line the pan so I can lift them out for cutting. I cool the peanut butter mixture about 20 min. then frost them with the chocolate and wait about another 20 min. and cut them so the choc. doesn't crack.

Shiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2010
Once again my friend I knew you wouldn't disappoint with your recipe. When looking for a glaze recipe I saw you posted one I knew right away that is the one I would try. I didn't have the bittersweet but did use semi sweet and made half the batch because I was using it on a bundt cake. However that all being said it is delicious smooth satiny buttery chocolaty what's not to love! And half a batch works PERFECT for a bundt cake.

Classic Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2008
Great basic macaroni salad recipe has just the right amount of tart/sweetness to it. It really does improve if left for 24 hours. I always like to tone down my onion a bit so if I don't have a sweet onion I use a regular onion and dice it up small for the salad then soak the diced onion in cold water for 1/2 hour before adding to the recipe it will calm down the flavor of the onion.
