Eggnog French Toast

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2013
I read the reviews and made some changes that I thought made it wonderful. First, I used 6 slices of Texas Toast. Since it's so thick, I used 4 eggs and 3 cups of eggnog. I used Trika G.'s spices (Ground nutmeg- 1/2 tsp., 1 tsp cinnamon and 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice) and let it sit for about 1.5 hours, since I didn't want the bread to be too soggy. Then I placed it on a foil covered baking sheet, sprayed itcooking spray and baked it at 400 degrees for about 20-25 minutes, flipping halfway through. The French toast gets fluffy and was not soggy in the least!

Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2012
I used about 3 pounds of red potatoes, Philly cooking creme- the roasted garlic flavor, 1/3 of a container of fat free sour cream and added an onion to the cooking water. YUM! The flavor was great! Instead of putting these in a crock pot, I baked them in a 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes to warm them and get a crust on top. The family raved!

Gingerbread Biscotti

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2010
I followed FireFly08's suggestions as I had never made biscotti before. Thank you FireFly08! Great suggestions! Mine turned out very well, although I made a few changes. I had a commercial pumpkin biscotti at my local coffee shop and wanted to make something similar without all the chemical preservatives. Instead of the molassas, I added canned, pureed pumpkin- just a smidge more than the 1/4 cup of molassas and I reduced the ginger a little bit. They were amazing!

Banana Oatmeal Cookie

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
I used 3 small bananas for my 1 cup, omitted the nuts and used 1/2 cup butter and 1/4 cup applesauce. I also increased the cinnamon and nutmeg. Great cookie! Next time, I'll try more applesauce and whole wheat flour in an attempt to make it healthier. This is a great recipe for those overripe bananas that isn't banana bread!

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
Great recipe and easy for novice bread makers. I did take others advice and used my KA mixer with the dough hook- 5 min. on medium made great dough! Since others had said they made rolls, but left no directions, I looked at other recipes. I used a 9 inch pie plate, sprayed it with non stick spray. I cut the dough in half, using one half for bread and the other for rolls. I cut it into 12 equal pieces and rolled them up and put them in the pie plate. I baked them for about 18 minutes and they were great! Next time, it will be rolls only! Thanks for the great recipe!

Banana-Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2009
I subbed applesauce for the oil,halved the white sugar and left out the nuts and cranberries, as I was making these for breakfast for my one year old. I made them into mini muffins, which my little one loves- they are just her size and produce little waste. The mini muffins take about 15 minutes and the regular muffins (which I made for me!) take about 22. I always wonder about timing when I bake in another size pan, so I thought I would share. These were very yummy!

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2008
Since I am pregnant, I left out the cooking wine and used chicken broth instead. I mixed up the sauce on the stove and added sauted onion and garlic. Also, I agree with other reviewers- the pork chops can go from brown to char in a quick moment- watch them carefully. Also, my pork chops only took about 40 minutes in the oven. Overall, good recipe.

Mini Reubens

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2007
I have had many, many requests for these and when I make them, I put the thousand island dressing on the side for those who are not crazy about thousand island!

Simple Baked Apples

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
I made this recipe, minus the walnuts and raisins and put it over puff pastry circles and added a little bit of vanilla bean ice cream. It was heaven! I also used half apple cider and half milk- yum!

Napa Cabbage Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2007
I used broccoli slaw instead of the cabbage. It was excellent and the broccoli slaw is a little crunchier and much better for you than just the cabbage!
