Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2013
I have been making this one for years and used it in many different ways. One thing that has been bugging me about it, though, is that it's really crumbly and dries out quickly. It's dense and not flaky in a good way. I want something more fluffy that melts in my mouth. It uses minimal ingredients, which I like, but I'm left longing and on the hunt for another easy delicious recipe. I'd give it 3.5 stars if I could.

Laura's Famous Aebleskiver

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
I had aebleskiver when I went to a scandanavian breakfast house and I was instantly in love. I wanted to make these at home and thus started my search for a pan and a recipe. I have tried this recipe a variety of ways: using "homemade buttermilk" and trying to whip egg whites in a plastic bowl (it doesn't work that great). What I really love to do is put bits of ground sausage and cheese, blueberries, or lil smokies in the pan after I've added the batter. I have tried many fillings, but these are my faves. Also, the recipe says to flip over once, but these should really be a round ball. These will be hard to make in a new pan, but the more butter and oil you use, the more seasoned it gets, the easier it will be.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
the title of this recipe is a lie. the dough was more of a batter and my chips all sank to the bottom of the cookie. I had to cook them 6 extra minutes just to get them to a point where I could hold them in my hand and not have to eat them with a fork.

White Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
I added about a 1/2 cup or more of Parmesean, a handfull of grated m.jack cheese and some garlic powder. It's a keeper, for sure! I've had it twice, once as shrimp and then as chicken alfredo.

Ultimate Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2008
Dh loved it more than Red Lobsters! I ommitted the wine and used parmesan cheese instead of asiago. No avacodo or noodles, but served over wild rice instead. I'm drooling just thinking about it. SO GOOD!!!

Austrian Jam Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2007
The recipe says it makes 3 dozen, but I only got 15 out of it. the cookies were decent. I like mine a little cakier so I put in the whole egg instead of just the yolk the second time I made them. The amout of butter in them was kind of disgusting to me. I think next time I'll just try a sugar cookie recipe and put the jam in the middle.

Pizza Sauce I

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2007
I love that this can be made totally from scratch, but it sort of had a huskier flavor thatn I expected. Maybe I added too much cinnamon, or that I used 1 TBS of Italian Seasoning instead of the tsp's of basil, parsley and oregano, since that's what I had on hand. I used my blender to make this, since I don't have a food proccesor. I liquified a little and then I pulsed it to break up the tomatoes, but still leave it chunky enough. To overcome the runniness that others talked about I sqeezed the juice out my tomatoes after cutting off the stems. It was an okay consistency once it baked, and I if my husband were homw when we ate it, I don't think he would have known the diiference. I will definately use this recipe again.

Pumpkin Dump Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2007
my new favorite. It takes a little more work than a fruit dump cake, but SOOOO worth it. Better than Pumpkin Pie, by far! The spice mix on top is an awesome twist. I added more butter to the cake mix to make it a little more crumbly instead of having dry spots on top.

Fig Duff

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2007
I searched out this recipe because my new sis in law wanted to bring a new tradition to the family. she put me in charge of the "flaming figgy pudding" on christams eve and I decided it needed real figs. We bake in in a bundt pan and put a metal dish in the hole, fill it with lemon extract and light it on fire while we sing "we wish you a merry christmas" It's pretty dramatic. This recipe as I recall tastes pretty much like bread pudding with figs instead of raisins. the lemon sauce was the best part, and that's a different recipe completely. If it wasn't for christams and we made everyone eat it, it probably wouldn't get eaten. After writing all these thought down, I'm not even sure I'll use this recipe this christmas.

Kona Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2007
eh. Nothing to write home about. It's bascily like a marinade. i only cooked it for 3 hours and it was still kinda dry. Even though it was almost covered in juices. I dipped my chicken in a cup of the juices because I was too lazy to make gravy out of them, but I could have. This recipe is just okay. If you want to make chicken in the crock pot it really isn't a whole lot different thatn the oven seasoning wise.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2007
Oh my word, this was yummy! I took it to a family dinner and we ate it ALL. It was SO EASY, too. I loved the twist of the fridge biscuits in it. I would eat this again and again
