Tomato Soup I

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2010
Good recipe. I did not add more than 1/3 cup of heavy whipping cream which I thought was more than enough. I'm not sure if I would make it again.

Caramel Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2010
Interesting dessert. Cook this in a 8X8 pan. I used a 1/2 cup of chopped cashews instead of walnuts. I also mixed the cashews and the morsels in a bag before adding it to the oatmeal crust. I'm not sure if I would add nuts again; you can barely taste them in the bar.

Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2010
This was my first successful attempt at making a pie crust. The flavor and texture were great. A few tricks to consider: first add the flour, sugar, and salt to a food processor. Pulse it until thoroughly mixed. Then add the shortening; try to evenly distribute the shortening when putting it in the processor. Pulse it a few times until crumbly (not long). Transfer mixture to a a large bowl and add the egg and water mixture. Mix with hands. Split the dough and put in the fridge overnight. The next day, roll the crust on a lightly floured surface.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2010
I made a few adjustments to the recipe and they are as follows: I cooked the apples in the butter, water, sugar mixture until almost tender. Next time I think I will reduce the liquid mixture and then cook the apples. I also added a few a shakes of cinnamon. I will make this again in the future. Update: I made this again and made a few alternations. I melted the butter and then added the flour. I let that cook for 5 or so minutes then added the brown and white sugar. I then added the water, let it reduce and thicken slightly. I think added the apples and cooked them to almost tender. I also preheated the oven to 375F and cooked the pie for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes I turned the oven to 350 and let the pie cook for another 35 minutes. Update 2: I melted the butter and added 3 heaping tablespoons of flour. I cooked the mixture for 5 or so minutes, stirring constantly. I then added 1/2 cup plus 2 tbs of brown sugar, 1/2 cup plus 2 tbs of brown sugar. Mixture will form a paste. I then added 2 tablespoons of water. I brought the mixture to a boil, lowered the heat and continued until the mixture became syrup/thick. I also added the apples and cooked until the mixture was thick again (5 or so minutes). I also added 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and 2 dashes of nutmeg. I baked the pie at 425 for 15 minutes, lowered the temperature to 350 and baked for 40 minutes. Allowed the pie to cool for 15 minutes.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
I used ground turkey as a substitute for the ground beef. First I cooked the bell pepper and onions in a little bit of olive oil. I then removed the mixture, added a little more olive oil and cooked the turkey. Once the turkey was almost cooked I added the rest of the ingredients. I also added a little more brown sugar than what the recipe called for.

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2010
I prefer this zucchini bread than any other zucchini bread. I wouldn't change a thing. I did have a hard time getting the bread to cook all of the way through but I will keep working at it. Update: I halved the recipe and here are a few tips. 1) if you can't find zucchini grate 2 italian squash with a box grater, 2) use about a cup and half of shredded italian squash, 3) use 2 eggs, 4) thaw frozen blueberries 5) use 1.5 cups of blueberries and 6) bake in a 9X5 metal loaf pan for 48-50 minutes. Enjoy warmed with butter...divine!

Holiday Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2010
I used rotisserie chicken for this recipe and instead of mayo I used Miracle Whip. I would certainly make this again. Update: It's much better the next day.

Pat's Baked Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2010
I truly love baked beans. My mom has an incredible recipe that I have tried to replicate and this recipe comes pretty close. I did alter the beans in the recipe. I used two 28oz cans of bushed baked beans and one 16oz can of Northern beans which I drained. I also nixed the ketchup. I like the onion flavor so I also added more than what the recipe called for. Update: These are even the better the next day! When I make half of the recipe I use about 1/3 cup of brown sugar.

Gobble Up Granola Snacks

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2010
These are terrific! I love granola bars and these beat the box granola bars. I used honey instead of corn syrup and dried cranberries instead of reasons. Try these you'll like them.

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2010
These are great! A few tips: Put the dry ingredients in a food processor. Take cold butter from the fridge and cut it up. Add the butter to the dry ingredients. Place food processor bowl into freezer for about 30-60 minutes. Remove from freezer and pulse together until crumbly. Follow the recipe from there.

Best of the Best Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: May 22, 2010
Good recipe. I halved the recipe and made 6 regular muffins. They only needed to be in the oven for 21 minutes. I like my muffins a little on the sweet side, so, I next time I will ensure my blueberries are relatively sweet.

Amish Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: May 16, 2010
This is a pretty good recipe. I made a few modifications: 2 celery stalks, 1/4-1/2 a large onion, 1/2 tsp of celery seed, 1/2 a red pepper and 2/3 cup of sugar. I also used a whole box of rigatoni. This makes a lot. Next time I will only make half of the recipe.

Pretzel Turtles

Reviewed: May 1, 2010
This recipe couldn't be any easier. I used mini pretzels and Rolos. Instead of adding a pecan I placed another pretzel on top. The result was a pretzel chocolate sandwich. I'm not sure that I would make these again but it only took a matter of minutes to make. Update: People love these treats. I've made them about a dozen times and they are usually devoured in a matter of minutes!

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
This is a quick and easy recipe. I would encourage you to use low sodium soy sauce and line the bottom of your baking dish with aluminum foil. I cooked two chicken breasts, sliced about a half inch thick. Bake in the oven at 400F for about 30 minutes.

Breaded Chicken Fingers

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
I marinated the chicken for exactly 4 hours and it came out moist and tasty! This was also the first time I used my cast iron skillet. I put the burner on medium heat and let the chicken cook. Super easy.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
My co-workers liked these but I wasn't a fan.  They are certainly edible, just not all that special.  I would encourage anyone making this to use one of the smaller cookie/ice cream scoops (2 tsp); it's the perfect size.  Update:  I have misplaced my 2tsp cookie scoop so now I use my medium cookie scoop.  I then cut that in half, roll it and put it in the mini muffin tray.  The cookies are done in about 7 minutes.  Update 2:  I use my medium scoop to portion the cookies, remove about 1/3, roll and place in the muffin tin.  The cookies cook in 8 minutes.

Spiced Sweet Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
This is quick, easy and delicious. Update: I made this for the second time today and took it to a whole new level. I add about 1/2 small jar of sun dried tomatoes, 2 garlic cloves, and 1/2 of lemon freshly squeezed. I will admit it is a little garlic and citrus-y but it you'll love it!

Sweet Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
Couldn't be an easier recipe. Similar to others, I lined the baking sheet with aluminum foil and lightly buttered it.
