Strawberry Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2004
It tastes good, but it sure has a soggy of texture. It's weird! I'm not too sure if I'd make this again. I used chopped, fresh strawberries for this recipe.

Greek Pasta with Tomatoes and White Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2004
It's excellent but I made LOTS of changes based on other reviews. I chopped tomatoes from a 28-oz can of tomatoes. I used a 15 oz. can of lima butter beans instead of cannellini beans. I sauteed three diced garlic cloves in 2 Tbsp olive oil and began the sauce with that. I addded 1 tsp basil and 1 tsp oregano to the sauce. I doubled the amount of pasta (to 16 oz.) to serve all five people in my family. I crumbled 8 oz. of feta cheese and mixed it with the entire pasta/sauce mixture instead of just putting it on top. I think it's great now.

Candied Carrots

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2004
I would have preferred a thicker sauce, but they were very tasty. Even my husband, who doesn't eat candied vegetables, ate them without complaining. Next time I'll have to double the recipe.

Chocolate Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2004
This tastes good, but it seems more like chocolate cake than a banana bread. The chocolate in this quick bread overpowers the taste of bananas, though. I did use full size chocolate chips, not the minis. Maybe the minis would be better for this recipe? You must let this quick bread bake for a full 70 minutes or it will not be done on the inside. Test it with a cake tester before you remove it from the oven. If it's not done, retest it in 5 minutes intervals until the cake tester comes out clean of banana batter (melted chocolate is okay on the tester). I used regular sour cream and the results were fine.

Cranberry Apple Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2003
After reading the reviews of others, I was skeptical of trying this recipe. I changed it a bit by chopping the fresh cranberries, adding 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 cup orange juice. It took 55 minutes to bake through. I'll probably not make this recipe again because there are other cranberry nut bread recipes I like better.

Grandma's Pumpkin Tea Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2003
Mmmm! This recipe is perfection! I knew it would turn out well just by smelling the batter. I deleted the butter-flavored extract because I don't like having to use artifical ingredients (plus I didn't have any!) :-) I also added about a cup of raisins. The tea bread came out dark, spicey, moist on the inside, crunchy on the outside. Careful, though! Test it well before taking it out of the oven. I had to bake my two loaves for 65 minutes. Perhaps because the temperature was 325. Nevertheless, it is a delight! Oh, yes...I also used my leftover jack-o-lantern to make the puree for this tea bread. I'm glad I still have some puree left. Think I know what I'll do with it! :-)

Apple Cake IV

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2003
This is an outstanding recipe. It comes out very moist, yet the walnuts make it crunchy. No alterations need to be made. The first time I made it, it came out just perfect! Highly recommended.

Chocolate Babka

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2003
My friend and I made it in a 9x12 pan. We thought it was a bit dry. My family, chocolate cake lovers, had no problem finishing it, though!

Grilled Fish Steaks

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2003
This was delicious! I used it to marinate some frozen whiting filet. I let the fish marinate while it was defrosting, and then put everything in the broiler. It was so simple to make, and my family loved it!

Cocoa Apple Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2003
I made this cake in a 9x13 pan by baking it at 350 for 45 minutes. It was indeed tasty and moist. It had a funny, spongy texture, though. The only changes I made were to use apple cider instead of water and use half margarine/half butter instead of all butter. I did not frost it because it was sweet enough with the mini chocolate morsels I added.

A-Number-1 Banana Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2003
This is a great way to use up ripe bananas. I made it in a 9x12 pan, but was afraid it was going to turn out too plain. I jazzed it up a bit with a cream cheese frosting and some mini chocolate chips on top. It looked very pretty. My family liked it a lot, although I prefer unfrosted cakes a bit more.

GA Peach Pound Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2003
This cake is yummy! I made it easy on myself by baking it in a 9x12 pan (first sprayed with cooking spray) and leaving it in the oven for just 45 minutes. I served it warm with ice cream. It got rave reviews from my husband!

Benne Wafers

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2003
I made them way too big and they all ran together. Not to worry! I had them on a piece of aluminum foil that was sprayed with cooking spray. I just hacked them apart with a knife and carefully moved them off the tray to cool. The taste was perfection. Chewy and scrumptious! A lot of trouble, but I guess it was worth it.

Fresh Cherry Crisp

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2003
This was a great way to use those farmer's markets' fresh sour cherries that come along only too infrequently. The crisp topping works really well with the sweetened tartness of the baked cherries. I'm sure this would be good with ice cream, but it didn't last long enough for us to try it that way!

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2003
I would not make this recipe again although it tasted good. The rice wasn't cooked when the time was up and the water was gone. I had to add water to it to get the rice to finish cooking. Somthing was awry, but I don't know what it was. I can generally cook rice with no problem.

Easy Pesto

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2003
Wow! Do I like this recipe! It's quick and yummy. Just the thing to do with a handful of fresh basil straight from the farmer's market. I simply toasted slivered almonds on a hot, dry skillet until lightly toasted and fragrant. Forget the oven!

Dad's Double Whole Grain Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2003
These are great pancakes. They are also a delicious way to get some whole grains into your diet. I tried them spread with blueberry preserve because they came out very thin for me. Very tasty!

Corn Fritters

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2002
These are yummy! They're a bit time-consuming and messy to make, but worth the time and trouble, I think!

Gingerbread Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2002
Although I was excited by the enticing ingredients, the final results did not find favor with me. The abundance of baking powder caused a volcano-like effct of the batter. Six extra egg yolks remaining after making pancakes seemed like a waste. In addition, two of my three kids said they liked the flavor of other pancakes I make much better. Sorry!

Veronica's Apple Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2002
Wow! These were great. Very moist with just the right taste of apples. My kids loved them. I went to eat the leftovers next morning (I made a double batch right from the start), but someone got to them before I did. Must go make some more now...
