Luscious Slush Punch

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2013
I have made this twice now, the first time with 1/2 half the recommended sugar and the second time with no sugar added. Everyone happily drank it with no added sugar. There is so many sweet ingredients in it the extra sugar just isn't needed.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2012
I make this at least twice a month. I always boil the ingredients in chicken broth, then strain it to add it back to the sauce which I always double. I usually use celery salt in place of the salt and celery seed and also add a few shakes of poultry seasoning. I often accidentally put the onions in with the rest of the boiled vegetables and have never noticed a difference in taste. The baking time of 35 minutes seems right-on even with the sauce doubled. It is a bit runny the first time but reheats nicely at that consistency. If you have a large family that can eat it at one sitting you may want it a tad less runny.

The Best Caramel Apples

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
This took quite a long time to get to temperature because I was afraid to burn it. I used organic apples washed with vinegar and did not dip them in boiling water. The apples taste pretty good and the caramel stuck fine, but even better I had quite a bit of caramel left over so I poured it in a 8X8 square pan lined with parchment paper, put semi-sweet chocolate chips on it while it was still hot along with pecans and a bit of sea salt. That is really good!

Grilled Chicken with Rosemary and Bacon

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2012
This came off the grill moist and full of flavor. We did cook it to 165. The bacon was a bit rubbery, but still good.

Banana Cake VIII

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2012
Just what I needed. I was making a layer cake, so I omitted the peanuts, mixed in 3/4 C. chocolate chips, put peanut butter frosting between the layers and then frosted the outside with sour cream chocolate frosting. Yum.

Mom's Coleslaw

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2012
Great, I usually mix 1/4 less of the wet ingredients than the recipe calls for, add a tiny bit of finely sliced onion, about 1/2 tsp lemon juice and a sprinkling of celery seeds. It is always better if it has been refrigerated a few hours before eating. It is best on the second day.

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2012
This is a great recipe for cinnamon rolls, buns breadsticks, you name it. I make with 2C all purpose flour, 1 3/4C wheat flour and added 1 TBLS vital wheat gluten and they come out great. For cinnamon rolls I flatten out dough, cover with butter, top with brown sugar and cinnamon combined, roll, slice, let rise 45 min and bake at 350 for 25 minutes.

Peanut Butter Apple Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2011
A half-batch was more than enough for three apples. It had a better consistency on the second day. It was good, but a bit grainy from the brown sugar on the first day. We used up the left-overs with pretzel sticks.

Honey Cornbread

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
Wow, simply wow. I did add a bit of salt and had to substitute 3/4 C whole milk and 1/4 C melted butter since I did not have heavy cream and it was still amazing, Nice crispy top. I baked it in an 8 inch round pan for 25 minutes and it is just right. Thanks for the recipe, I am deleting all my other cornbread recipies as they are no longer needed.

This is a really yummy recipe, used sugar instead of flour to prevent sticking.

Breakfast Casserole II

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2009
I didn't have any breakfast meat on hand, so went without and omitted the mushrooms. I used 10 eggs and thought this turned out really great. I mixed cheese in also and let the entire mixture sit in the fridge for a few hours prior to baking. I baked this in a stone and left it in for almost 90 minutes. This would have been even better with any breakfast meat in it.

Chocolate Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
This is now a favorite. I made a loaf for the neighbor who snow-blowed our driveway after a blizzard as a thank you, and now we can hardly stop him from beating us out to clean up after a snowfall.

Peppermint Brittle

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2008
I followed advice of others and added a bottom layer of dark chocolate, and sifted out the bigger pieces of candy for the top while mixing in the smaller pieces. I also added a bit of green food color to a small amount of the white chocolate and drizzled it over the top. I think this recipe was well balanced with the dark chocolate, and would have been overly sweet without it.

Barbie Doll Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2008
I have a little boy that just turned one. He is fascinated by my husband's red baseball cap, so I made this cake into a cap instead of a barbie cake. I used the Pampered Chef large batter bowl. I mixed up two store bought cake mixes and they fit in the bowl. One problem I almost had was that I mixed the cake in the bowl, but then had to dump it out wash and dry the bowl and then grease it. I also floured the bowl to make sure it didn't stick. I had to bake it for 80 minutes. After it cooled I cut a layer off the bottom to make the brim out of. It was a fairly goofy looking hat, but my son said it was a hat, so that was all that mattered to me. Also it wasn't as red as I had wanted it, but oh well.

Pat's Award Winning Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2008
This was the first carrot cake I ever made. I made this for my son's first birthday party and it got rave reviews. The problem was I forgot to omit the nuts for him, so I made a second cake a few days later so he could have some too. We gave him a different type of cake at his party. The second cake was just as good as the first. I did swap out 1/2 cup of oil for applesauce. The cakes were both really moist and flavorful, nuts, or no nuts.

Mini Meatloaves

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2008
These turned out really well. I doubled the recipe, and used half ground turkey, but only mixed up a single batch of glaze. I used only 1 tbls of brown sugar, and felt like I had enough glaze and it was sweet enough. I did some in muffin tins and mini loaf pans at 45 minutes, and they turned out just fine.

Chewy Oatmeal Cookies I

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
Mmmmmm... These turned out really yummy. They mixed up very nicely. I used cinnamon applesauce and omitted the walnuts and upped both the raisins and chocolate chips 1/4 cup each. I baked them at 360 for 13 minutes on airbake sheets and this seemed just right. My oven seems to run cooler. I did forget to grease the sheets first and didn't realize my error until all sheets were covered w/ dough but still managed to get them off with a thin metal spatula. I will make these many times again.
