Mom's Venison Barbeque Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2012
Simple to make and flavorful. It's a bit too sweet for my taste even though I reduced the sugar (didn't have brown so I used 2 tsp. white plus 1 tsp. molasses), and I made the amateurish mistake of doubling the butter. I think I missed the vinegar I usually put in my BBQ sauces.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2011
Tastes slightly greasy as written. I'll definitely substitute some applesauce in future for the oil, and perhaps add some nutmeg to brighten the cinnamon taste.

Marinated Cucumbers

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2011
On the plus side I like the balance of sweet to sour. Sort of an unfair rating since it's based entirely on my particular taste, but I thought it was just too herby. Then DH tells me he likes my asian version the best, so this won't be a keeper for me.

Chinese Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2011
Easy, tender and tasty. Perhaps because I use standard soy sauce it ends up looking too brown, so I add a few carrot slices to lighten it up a little.

Marrakesh Vegetable Curry

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2009
I made it with a few things missing that I didn't have on hand, but despite my fears about the orange juice and raisins, it was just delicious. I'm going to make it again with as many ingredients I missed before as possible. I can't judge its authenticity but we sure liked it!

Barbecue Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
There wasn't enough sauce to cover the slices of chicken breast I used, and I thought it needed more spice. Probably using a cutup chicken as the recipe states would work better? Needless to say, there were leftovers of this while the Mexican chicken casserole was cleaned up.

Sarah's Banana Bread Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
Had a 9x13 pan already prepared so used that. Tasty with nuts and coconut, but uneven and lopsided. I would have used a mixer if that was suggested. I also subbed about 1/2 C white whole wheat and with 3 large bananas it was quite moist! Second time I added coconut and I hated the texture! Won't do that again.

Cinnamon Rolls II

Reviewed: May 27, 2009
Great seller at the bake sale! Needs more cinnamon in the middle for my taste. I'm keeping this recipe.

Ooey-Gooey Cinnamon Buns

Reviewed: May 27, 2009
So it delivered on the "gooey" part, although the syrup candied some in my metal pan despite the shorter 18 min. baking time. Too much butter for me. I like a sticky bun you lick your fingers after but don't necessarily have to wash your hands! I made a different sticky bun before which I have to find again...

Irish Soda Farls

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2008
Lovely simple bread in a hurry! I used plain yogurt instead of buttermilk, had to add a bit of additional milk, and it rose beautifully in the pan.

Chocolate Nut Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2008
Cake-like brownie recipe I had trouble with: batter was too stiff so I added about 1/4 cup applesauce. Then I had only 1/2 cup cocoa so I added 1 Tbsp of instant coffee powder. I also wish I could more uniformly chop nuts, since mine come out from very fine to medium sized, not very pretty on top. I'm going back to the recipe on the Hershey's cocoa can.

Fresh Peach Pie I

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2008
The taste is superb, and I got a lot of compliments. The directions could be a bit better. My second pie I learned to puree the peaches and water in the blender first, and to stir together the dry ingredients before combining everything in the saucepan. This may be obvious to experts, but I'm not one.

Yay, a recipe that is consistently successful! This recipe has encouraged me to step away from baking only in my bread machine--Thanks!!

Tomatoes with Basil-Garlic Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2008
I tried this on myself first, thank goodness! Basil and garlic team up better with olive oil than yogurt and vinegar, in my opinion. Sure was easy and pretty though.

Extra Easy Hummus

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2008
Edible, but tasted too strongly of cumin. So I've gone to the store to find tahini.

Real Hummus

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2008
I really liked this one, authentic and smooth. I only have a blender, not a food processor, and had to work on blending my hummus with other recipes.

Flax and Sunflower Seed Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2008
Great flavor. Too soft and moist in my opinion, and my loaf rose too high then dipped on top. After cutting the water a bit and changing 2 cups whole wheat and 1 cup bread flower, it came out the way I like it.

Garlic Lover's Pizza Crust for the Bread Machine

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
I love this crust for its great flavor, and I believe that 2 cups of flour makes just the right size instead of being too much dough for one large pizza.

Fruit Loaf

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2008
I didn't make this loaf exactly as recommended, making the following big changes for my Fruity Loaf: Used 1/3 cup prepared mincemeat and enough water to make 1 1/8 cup liquid; didn't have milk powder, added only 1/3 cup raisins plus 1/3 cup chopped dates, and what I thought was pumpkin spice equivalent. It didn't rise real high but boy was it delicious with butter or cream cheese!
