Best Ever Blueberry Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2014
Delicious. I had exactly 3 cups of berries from my own bushes and wanted something simple but special. I added two little things... the zest from the orange and a sprinkle of turbinado (sugar in the raw) over the top of the cobbler before cooking. 40 minutes was perfect and it was the best blueberry cobbler I've ever had. Served with vanilla ice cream and I treated myself to two helpings.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2010
I made these exactly as written and increased the recipe to 12 servings. It made exactly 12 pancakes (I used a 1/4 measure as instructed) and they were just right. Fluffy and tender. Everyone loved them! I thought the salt was a bit high when I tasted the batter, but once they were cooked and had syrup on them it was just right.

Southern Grits Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2010
Very good! I made this for a MOPS meeting and everyone was raving. I used kielbasa (browned) instead of ground pork and 10 eggs. Agree with other reviewers that the key here is seasoning and I used a fairly heavy hand, adding onion & garlic powder and Tabasco generously. I also prepared it the night before and baked the morning of so it would be hot for the meeting. I added a touch of milk before heating it up to ensure it wouldn't be dry.

Thai Tuna Burgers

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
These were surprisingly great! I made no changes except to add about 1/2 tsp green curry paste as others mentioned. I also think I might have accidentally used 1/2 tuna - 1/2 halibut as my freezer packs were not labeled. In any case, delicious! We served them on buns with a sambal mayo which was spicy, but not too hot. Perfect.

Apple Pie Filling

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
Based on other reviews about how it made a scanty 5 pies, I increased the recipe to make 64 servings. So glad I did... it filled my 6 pie plates perfectly. I cut the water in half and for that half used 1/2 apple juice - 1/2 water. I also decreased the sugar by a cup and slightly increased the cornstarch because there is nothing I hate more than a watery pie! Everything smelled and tasted delicious. I lined 6 foil pie plates with saran wrap, then portioned out the filling. Into the freezer they go, then when frozen I'll pop them out, wrap them up and when its time to bake I can place the pre-formed filling in the crust and bake. The foil plates are slightly smaller than a traditional pie plate, so the fit is perfect.

No Bake Cookies III

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
The best way to portion these out is with a small ice cream scoop. No mess, and they make consistent sized cookies! Recipe is delicious.

Unbelievable Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2008
I was really really surprised at how well these turned out. Considering the bare-bones instructions and weird technique, I wouldn't have thought they'd come out good! For those who crave details in recipes (I do), here's what I did: 1. I used instant (or bread machine) yeast 2. Heat milk to around 110 degrees. Much hotter and you'll kill your yeast (instant yeast could have been added to the flour directly, as it does not need to bloom like regular yeast) 3. I made 16 rolls, but they were quite large. Softball sized! This works ok, but you could easily get 32 smaller ones. 4. Used butter and it worked and tasted great. Margarine is never an option in this house :) 4. Add just enough flour to make the dough workable to form. For me, this was about 1/2 cup, plus some on my board when I was forming the rolls.

Delicious Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Reviewed: May 20, 2007
Really great results for very very minimal effort. I thought this would be an "ok" dessert to hold the kids and husband over but they positively devoured it! Husband had his still warm from the pan over vanilla ice cream. Delish. They were great for breakfast bars too. We had a bunch of near empty jam containers, so we used cherry, grape and raspberry. We'll be making a double recipe next time!

Easy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2005
This was very easy and tasty. I made only minor changes to fit what was in my cupboard. I used crutons that I ground in my processor for the crumbs, then chopped the onion plus some garlic in the processor, so that there were no 'chunkies'. After that I also processed up a carrot to sneak in some extra veg. I did saute the onion/garlic/carrot for a few minutes before adding to the meat mixture, but besides that everything was the same. Toddler and husband gobbled it up in great amounts!

Cornmeal Cookies I

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2005
Good, plain, straightforward cookie. I did not roll them out, but made about 1 inch balls and flattened, 12 min cooked them perfectly. Crisp and light. Perfect for dipping in coffee or hot chocolate. It would do quite well with other extracts other than vanilla (lemon, almond, etc)

Country Style Fried Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2005
The only thing I didn't like about this recipe is that they didn't say what type of potato to use and what size... A large red potato is gonna be much smaller than a large russet! At least give me total lbs or something :) Anyhoo, I ended up using 6 large red potatos since its what I had on hand. Came out great... Husband and 1 year old were in heaven! Only thing I would do is move the potatos to a bowl before seasoning as it smoked pretty badly when I just dumped them into the hot pan.

Monkey Bread II

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2005
Very good! I made the dough by hand (no bread maker) and let it rise an hour initially, then 20 min after putting it together. It was rather cumbersome to get the sugar/butter mixture over the dough (mixture was hot and very sticky)... I ended up dumping all the cut dough pieces into the sugar mixture, mixing, then using a spoon to kinda pry them back apart and put them in the pan. The pieces were probably larger than they should have been, but it came out great! I've decided that I like this more than cinnamon rolls. Much easier and not nearly as dry as some rolls come out.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2005
These were great and rich. Making the dough the night before and putting them in the next morning is the simplest way to go.

Easy Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2004
Good, but only with additions. Used 1 whole small onion, two cloves garlic, no mushrooms. Didn't bother removing onions before adding beef to brown. Drained off some of the fat and didn't use the extra butter before adding the flour. I'd leave out the salt too. When I added the broth, I also added a few shakes of Worsteshire and, surprisingly, maybe a teaspoon or two of soy sauce. It really made it taste more beefy. Because of the broth and soy, I didn't add any salt and it was fine. Went heavy on the pepper and threw in a dash of thyme. Decent stuff.

Quick Start Breakfast Drink

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2004
This was good, but made a lot! I have a pretty large blender and it was filled to the brim. Would suggest making in two batches to make sure everything gets mixed well. Left out the wheat germ since I didn't have any on hand and used frozen strawberries.

Vanilla Ice Cream V

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2004
Do not expect creamy... Its not really. But its graininess is not entirely unappealing either. The graniness could probably be resolved by using a sugar syrup rather than raw suger just thrown in. I don't like the homemade ice creams that coat the mouth and this one was very 'clean'. I halved the recipe, but used 3 tsp Vanilla because I wanted a very intense taste. Its a good last minute recipe

Naan

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2002
This was great with a beef curry I made. I had tons and tons of leftover dough though, so I formed small balls, froze it and now pull one out when I need pizza dough. Make a great crust and SO easy.

French Bread Rolls to Die For

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2002
I've had problems with french bread in the past (so many steps, so much time) but this was great! Instead of making it into loves, I made cloverleaf rolls by making three walnut sized peices of dough and putting them in a muffin tin cup. I was able to make 12 of these and also 10 more smaller round rolls. They were delish!
