Candy Apple Jelly

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2007
The jelly in the jars looks absolutely amazing. I made my apple juice from fresh apples and the resulting jelly is fantastic. So I can absolutely brag on this one. I made no alterations on this recipe. I did however use my remaining apple pulp to make All Day Apple Butter submitted by Terri. I yielded 8 half pint jars and also 11 half pints of Apple Butter for only 5 1/2 lbs. of apples.

Applesauce Drop Doughnuts

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
Great time saving recipe! I wanted to make doughnuts for my family, but didn't want the work of a traditional doughnut. I found this recipe and was not disappointed. I used my cookie scoop to drop the doughnuts into my deep fryer, giving me nicely shaped doughnut holes everytime. This recipe makes lots. Our family of 5 has leftovers to look forward to later.

Rhubarb Jam

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2008
Excellent! Be sure to use fresh orange juice if you can, it makes a world of difference. My test batch went quickly, so I can't wait until next rhubarb season.

Stir-Fried Vegetables

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2008
Nice recipe. I too used broth instead of water. I also used a bag of frozen stir fry vegetables in stead of fresh, as it was what I had on hand. It worked well and was what I was looking for.

Caramel Apple Jam

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2008
This recipe tastes great, but I have issues. Understand you are making applesauce into a "jam". So process your apples in your favorite way and then follow this recipe. There are certainly more time and product efficient ways to process apples than dicing them. This has similar flavor to the "All Day Apple Butter" on this site without the all day cooking. Because you are using pectin you are actually gelling the liquid instead of cooking it out,so,I suppose one could call it a jam in stead of apple butter. But- apples have pectin naturally adding pectin just makes it gell faster. I tried this recipe because it sounded interesting, but I doubt I will make it again.

Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2007
Turkey is a must at Thanksgiving- but this brine takes turkey to a whole new level. A great solution to flavoring the whole bird and not just the skin. Beyond that, you can still season and/or stuff the bird in your favorite way. The brine only serves to bring out natural flavors and keeps the meat very moist. Will do this again and again.

Herman Applesauce Doughnuts

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2007
The texture of this doughnut is much crispier than the cake doughnuts I have made before. The sourdough and applesauce flavors are subtle. I was hoping for a richer flavor and was a little disappointed. Perhaps if my starter was aged longer this would change at least one aspect of this. I used homemade, slightly chunky applesauce, so I'm not sure how much more I could adjust that flavor. Because the sourdough flavor is unique to my current recipes I will likely do this again, but will try to adjust the flavors to suit my preference.

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2008
What's not to like! It's super easy. My kids loved it! And if you have kids you probably have the ingredients in the pantry.

Whimpies

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2009
I'm not sure, but I think you have to be from pennsylvania to know what a Whimpie is!! Not unlike a Sloppy Joe a whimpie has a bit more veggies and a nice homemade sauce. I had to deviate a bit when I discovered a lack of ketchup, but not to worry, tomato paste, a little more brown sugar and seasonings and I was all set.

All-Day Apple Butter

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2007
I liked the balance in flavor for this recipe. I made alterations. 1. I first simply quartered and cooked the apples in water. 2. I strained the apple juice through cheese cloth. I then used the juice to make Candy Apple Jelly a recipe submitted by All Recipes' Betsy Porter. The remaining pulp I ran through my fruit strainer so it was smooth. I finished the recipe as directed here and obviously reduced the cooking time. I was happy with the results and have much product as a result of my labor. I have 11 jars of Apple Butter and 8 Jars of Candy Apple Jelly perfectly set and sealed ready to be given away as gifts. Not bad for only 5 1/2 lbs. of apples.

Chicken Dijon

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
As is the recipe is a bit bland, I seasoned my chicken with salt, pepper and thyme before cooking, I added an additional tablespoon of the mustard and used heavy cream. The result was a nice dish everyone liked and the sauce was not overwhelming at all, really a nice compliment to the chicken. I will make this again with these changes.

Zucchini Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2008
Moist & Delicious! I have made this recipe several times (zucchini season) and I have excellent results every time. I like to use my bundt pan, so I bake it at 350 for 80 minutes. My six year old begs for this recipe on a regular basis.

French Bread Rolls to Die For

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
Bakery style rolls straight out of the oven! AND they are perfect every time! I made these for college students and they couldn't believe these weren't from the bakery. Definitely make the recipe "as is" first before tweaking this to your taste. I think some of the other reviewers may have a specific taste they are trying to achieve. This recipe is truly top notch as it stands. I like a variety of textures and flavors, so I may adjust this on occasion. Spraying the oven with water is an excellent way to put a nice crust on. But this roll can stand by itself without extra fuss. This recipe may be one of my best all time finds on this site!

North Carolina-Style Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2008
Excellent! I did the rub, scoring the meat a bit to really get the seasoning in, then let it set. I wanted to have this done when we got home and since I didn't want to leave the grill unattended I made some adjustments. I grilled it for an hour, searing the meat and putting a nice char on it, then I put it in my crockpot. It was perfectly done when I wanted it and had that wonderful smoky flavor- the natural way! I adjusted the sauce to my taste, using less vinegar, salt and peppers adding some cajun seasoning and molasses. The whole result was INCREDIBLE!

Black Bean Soup I

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2007
The broth for this soup was wonderful and so fragrant. I also prefer to eliminate the vinegar and added a clove of minced garlic to the sautee. I also added rice and corn to the mix. It was excellent.

French Dip Sandwiches

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2008
This recipe is excellent, I have made this a few times, I honestly think it was best when I made it with a nice lean venison roast. The beef is nice too, remember your cut and quality of meat will effect your results. But all will be good it is simply a matter of good, better, best!

Cinnamon Belgian Waffles

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2008
Excellent! I have made many different homemade waffles and this recipe is the best by far. I followed the recipe exactly, no changes. I served with apple butter. Apples or any fruit would be perfect on these waffles.

French Breakfast Puffs

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
Make no mistake, this is really just a muffin. There is a mistake with the sugar, yes you should cream it with the shortening and skip sifting it with the flour. It was a nice breakfast muffin. I had homemade apple butter and jelly to pair it with, that was a perfect combination. These muffins remind me of Snickerdoodles. They make a nice treat in the morning.
