Apple Pie Filling

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2007
I have an apple tree in the backyard and had heard you could freeze apple pie filling but never had a recipe. When I saw this recipe it was perfect timing. I took the advice of others and reduced the water to 6 cups water to 12 cups apples. In a peach filling recipe on the website, they suggested to freeze the peaches in a foil lined pie plate with foil on top. When it froze, remove it from the plate. Cook in oven at 425 degrees on the bottom rack then lower the temperature. I tried this with this apple pie filling and it was marvelous. I look forward to another apple pie this holiday. Thanks for the recipe.

Freezer Peach Pie Filling

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2007
It is genius. I love the concept. I do wish that I had made (as another reviewer wrote) more peaches in a 9-inch pie because it is not enough. Next time, I will add 4 c. of fruit. I also think when I do bake it, I will add a top. As a reviewer mentioned--try it with apples and I have a bag of apples waiting so I think I will. Thank you. Love the idea.

Quick Chicken Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2007
I changed the recipe slightly. I added cream of mushroom instead of the other soup and used soy milk instead of milk. I also used frozen peas and corn not thawed and it was fine not thawed first. I had cooked chicken and threw it in my food processor where it diced up the meat a little finer than if I had done it by hand. I liked it finer. I was suprised at how much I actually liked this quick recipe. It was really good. I used Bisquick for the breading. In fact, my husband who does not like chicken pot pie liked it and went back for seconds that evening. My son liked it also. Thank you for the recipe, I will do this recipe again definately.

Easter Eggs

Reviewed: May 13, 2007
I made this recipe with Peanut butter and coconut. Coconut was the favorite. The first batch I used regular chocolate chips and the second batch I bought a better chocolate which made all the difference in the world. My Aunt had asked me to make them again next Easter but she recommended making them smaller. This was good advice.

Irresistible Raspberry Buttermilk Dumplings

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2007
I had never made dumplings before and really liked these. We had just gathered pick ur own black raspberries from a farm and this was a nice recipe for them. The dumplings were deliciou. My 7 year old son especially liked them. I used the leftover syrup for other things for the rest of the week. Like pancakes or a blueberry dessert and I topped it with my leftover raspberry syrup which I heated up before using. Thanks for the recipe.

Mincemeat Crumb Bars

Reviewed: May 13, 2007
Didn't really like it much. Each family member only ate 1/2 when I gave them a small bar of it. I froze it hoping that it might be better after it was frozen. Probably not.

Apple Chutney Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2007
I changed the recipe alittle. I made the chutney without golden raisins because I didn't have any. I spread on top of raw pork chops w/out bones and baked for an hour. I liked the apples mixture with the rice and the pork chops came out moist and tasty. I liked it my son did not like the apples.

Pink Lemonade Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2007
This is the easiest dessert I have ever made. I made it exactly as directed and put the pies in the freezer. It was deliciously tart and sweet so I cut in thin slices. Loved it. I used Margarita (frozen) instead of the lemonade and I really loved this better.

Sweet Potato Pie II

Reviewed: May 23, 2007
Oh My Gosh! This was the best sweet potato pie I have ever ever had. My son, my husband and I were very happy with it. Serve it warm with cool whip on top. Out of this world. I actually used a can of yams and a pilsbury pie crust. It was quick and delicious. Thank you for this recipe. It is a keeper.

Freezer Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2007
This is a great recipe. I wanted to take advantage of tomato harvest season. There is nothing like a fresh tomato. I made this recipe and froze it in small batches. Today, I took three batches out, put it in my Nesco Cooker added water, lentils, rice, sausage (already cooked), a chicken bouillon cube. It is delicious. I hope I can save enough for the winter. I might eat it all before then.

Seven Layer Tex Mex Dip

Reviewed: May 23, 2007
This is a simple no cook recipe. Make sure the guacomole is good because it will make a difference. It was a hit at the party and I could make it somewhat in advance and not have to worry about a warm dish. Thanks for the recipe.

Berry Trifle

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
I made this for a family occasion. This was an easy, delicious, and attractive dessert. I also layered the cake and bluberries and raspberries and blackberries. There were many kids at my party so I omitted any alcohol and it was still delicious. I put a berry on top to top it off. I enjoyed it and so did my guests. I will make this again.

Easy Apple Cider

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2007
I liked this recipe. I added a small piece of vanilla bean and orange juice to the cider and cut back just a little on the brown sugar. I had 15 folks over for about 4 hours and they drank most of a large crockpot full. My son who is 7 years old loved it and wants me to keep making it all winter. Thanks for the recipe.

Chocolaty Caramel-Nut Popcorn

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2007
Out of this World Yummy! BEWARE! You won't be able to stop eating them once you start. LOL -I altered the recipe and used peanuts instead of almonds. I used plain kernals in the microwave in a paper bag instead of microwave popcorn and made two large bowls of popcorn. I doubled the recipe for the carmel mixture and added more nuts and chocolate. My party guests ate the whole thing. I may make it again this holiday for Christmas presents.

Stephanie's Freezer Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2007
I have been making lots of this spaghetti sauce and freezing it. I did use the sauce once on a boli pizzi and it was out of this world. So I made more of the sauce and froze it. I can't wait to thaw in the winter and have tasty homemade sauce. Thanks for the recipe.

Honey Coconut Salmon

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2007
It was a nice recipe but it didn't work for me. My taste buds didn't like the combination. It hid the salmon instead of working with the salmon.

Garlic Butter

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2007
I made this garlic butter, then put it on Italian bread slices and froze it. When I needed to use my garlic bread, I pulled it out of the freezer the night before, and broiled it, then sliced it. I liked the taste of the garlic bread better then just drizzling butter or olive oil on it then garlic. It was evenly distributed. The paprika gave it a little extra zing. I did not have italian seasoning so I did not put that in but it was still great.
