Peach Pie the Old Fashioned Two Crust Way

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2014
Really nice spices and sweetness. I did need to add more flour and a bit of cornstarch for my juicy peaches tho. I uploaded a pic but they didn't let me leave a comment.

Garlic Prime Rib

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
I am going to give this a 5 star rating for flavor alone. I modified for a 7.90 lb rib-roast. Other reviews said to lower the initial heat to 450 (I did) then lowered the heat again 325 and roast-per pound, etc. After resting 20 min, it turned out med/med-well. (I do have an old O'keefe stove that is smaller interior) I will make this again and take it out 30 min early. Tip: mix all spices, slather on top--then pack-on with rock salt so the garlic doesn't burn!!! The salt will crack off later and not bee over-salty. (brainstorm) I don't like it bloody but do like it med-rare. Don't be afraid to try this..when in doubt, back off 30 min on the cook time! This recipe makes incredibly, tender prime rib! All I heard from the men were high praises. Enjoy!

Teriyaki Sauce and Marinade

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
I substituted 2 tsp. hot chili oil for the black and red peppers. This sauce was perfect--and gets better if you can let it hang out in the fridge for at least a week. A wonderful flavor!

Roasted Root Vegetables With Apple Juice

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2009
I made this with what I had on hand, which was 2 sweet potatoes, a rutabaga (sweeter version of a turnip), brussel sprouts and a purple onion. I cut the onion into wedges, trimmed the ends and cut a half inch cross into the bottom of the brussel sprouts, and cut the sweet potato and rutabaga into fries. Tossed with olive oil, salt and pepper on a big sheet pan (with 1 inch sides) 4oz each of apple juice and a fruity piniot grigio--didn't reduce it just pored into the pan with the veggies. Baked for 40 min, taking the sweet potato out after 25 min and turning the veggies in the liquid remaining in the bottom of the pan. Back in the oven for another 15min. Perfect carmelization and could have put the photo on the cover of Gourmet Magazine. (Too bad my batteries were dead in the camera). I will serve this tomorrow nite at room temp with a drizzle of balsamic & olive oiil, along side Firecracker Grilled Alaska Salmon (from this site) and wild rice pilaf. Make sure you use good wine. If you don't want to drink it--don't cook with it as it will intensify the flavor it reduces. I used Clos Du Bois but any good quality white wine would be good. Thanks for posting this recipe.

Moist Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
I have gotten on a "yeast" kick lately and decided to make these rolls to take to work. Boy, did they go fast and everyone wanted the recipe. I thinned out some powdered sugar with a little milk and the zest of one orange. Drizzled over the tops of the warm rolls. I did double the filling as I wanted to have a stronger cinnamon-sugar taste. I could've eaten the whole pan--they're that good! I

Oranged Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
Excellent flavor! I have never liked whole-berry cranberry sauce before--but I sure do now! I made it exactly as written but did adjust the sugar at the end to suit my palate. (I ended up using 1 whole box plus 4 Tbl. dark brown sugar) I simmered it for 2 hours in a 3 quart pan, adding one cup of water. It thickened up perfectly after chilling. This was so good I couldn't stop tasting it! I gave myself heartburn and had to take some Tums! This would be wonderful as a holiday cheesecake topping or warmed up over vanilla ice cream. Thanks for posting such a tasty recipe. (I am taking it to a potluck in two days. I'll let you know what the reviews are from co-workers). Update: These were such a hit at out party! Many asked for the recipe and wanted to take home the rest (makes a big batch). I plan on canning this recipe next year to give as holiday gifts. Thank you for a great recipe!

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
I wish Ople was my Grandma!!! She really nailed a perfect apple pie with this recipe. The first time I made this exactly as written. Very good. The next time I tossed the apples with 1/2 squeezed lemon, 1 t. cinnamon and 1/4 t. each of allspice and nutmeg. Poured caramel sauce over apples and mixing in bowl before putting them in crust and covered with a full top crust. (It sure looked cute with my little pie-bird poking his head out the top of the crust.) Brushed top with egg wash and sprinkled with sugar before baking. I make this all the time now--what a great recipe!

Mom's Turkey Sausage Patties

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
OMG! This recipe is the bomb! You can't even tell you're eating ground turkey! For a 3 lb pkg of ground turkey, I add 2 tsp sea salt, doubled the rest of the spices, and added 1/2 t. ground thyme and 1 t. granulated garlic. I heated up a skillet on the spot (with a little canola oil) and fried up 2 small test patties. Hmmm..very good, but maybe I'dd add the 2 big Tbl maple syrup as other reviewers did...not so good. The sugar in the syrup carmelized (burned) on the outside--even on very low heat. I will use up this batch but leave out the maple syrup next time. Thanks for a great preservative free recipe!

Blueberry Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
This is my "go to" recipe I make all the time now. It always gets rave reviews. I used 4 bananas, 2 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 tsp allspice. Baked it in an angelfood or a 9in. springform pan (so the topping doesn't fall off) for 70 min. and before baking use the crumb topping from the Blueberry Coffee Cake III recipe from this site.

Blueberry Coffee Cake III

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
A wonderful recipe! I added 1 tsp vanilla and increased the milk to 3/4 cup. Don't use white sugar for topping (it will burn). Thanks, I will make again and again.

Blueberry Ricotta Squares

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2009
Made these exactly and they came out very yummy! I doubled the recipe and baked in a 9x13 pan for 60 min. It only browned around the edges but didn't affect the taste. I will make these again!

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
after reading other reviews, I decreased the sugar by 1/4 cup and I also added only 2 tsp of cinnamon and 1/4 allspice. 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 buttermilk and OMG!!! This was absolutely to die for! I made another version after awapping out the zucchini with 4 ripe bananas and putting on a pecan strusel topping. Thanks for a great recipe! I would give this more stars if I could.

Pecan Cardamom Bar Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
Everyone who tries these LOVES them. They always try and identify the unique spice. I did change the icing by just mixing powdered sugar with orange juice and zest of 1 orange drizzled over while still warm. Thanks for the recipe.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
This recipe is awesome. That said, personally, I don't think it needed the 2 cans of tomato paste...one is plenty, and then just cook it down to the desired consistency. I will make again. Thanks!

Yummy Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
I made this exactly as written with maybe just a few more squirts of lemon juice to thin it a bit and WOW! The plate of veggies I brought to work just disappeared, and folks are asking for the recipe. Thanks for posting it!

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
After reading other reviews I did make a few slight modifications. I used 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 cup buttermilk, two tsp. cinnamon & 1/2 tsp. allspice. One cup each of brown and white sugar. All purpose whole wheat flour. Baked in a 9x13 sprayed and floured pan for 50 min. The co-workers LOVED it! This just became my new favorite zucchini bread. Thanks for posting it!

Ruben's Garlic Grill Sauce

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
For our Mother's Day BBQ I made this recipe and basted it over tri-tip steaks and they were sooo flavorful and juicy! I did change it slightly by adding 1 Tbl of Worchestershire sauce. I will use this again!

Mama's Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2008
Grand Slam Mama! After reading the reviews, the only changes I made were decrease the mustard to 1/4 cup, add 4 Tbl apple cider vinegar with 2 Tbl sugar,and a tsp of mustard powder, mixed in 5 chopped hard boiled eggs and 3 sliced eggs on top of salad. In my opinion, it really does need all 3 cups of mayo--I started with 2 cups and then had to add the third. I rinsed and cooled the noodles before adding to the dressing. I will keep this recipe forever. I am taking it to a saint paddy's potluck tomorrow. Yo mama knew her stuff!
