Cream Cheese Mints

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2000
I made these for Christmas and tinted them with green food coloring. Instead of rolling into balls, I rolled them out on waxed paper and cut out the mints with miniature holly shaped cookie cutters. They are delicious and beautiful and just melt in your mouth. My kids can't keep out of them!

Coconut Shrimp I

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2006
Fantastic! My husband, who doesn't even like coconut could not stop eating them. I also made the orange marmalade dipping sauce and everyone loved it too. My suggestions: use larger shrimp (I used medium and it was way too labor intensive), add a little salt, and add a little sugar if your coconut is not presweetened.

Bodacious Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2006
This recipe is excellent. The flavor combinations are delicious. The raisins, sunflower seeds, and cheese make this dish a winner.

Laura's Quick Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
Now I'm not really a chili fan, but I love this chili. I don't even like beans, but I do in this chili. Wonderful combination of flavors. We just topped with the shredded cheese.

Beef-Stuffed Squash

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2006
My family voted that this recipe is a keeper. Since the ground beef is baked in the squash, make sure you get very lean meat. I made the recipe just as described and would not alter anything. It was delicious, easy to prepare, and looked very impressive--pretty enough for company.

Russian Tea

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2006
This is the age old recipe I grew up with. It is a staple at our house, especially around cold and flu season as the cloves in the mixture, soothe sore throats. Instead of the 3 oz. package of lemondade, we just use the smaller .23 ounce sugarless lemonde mix.

Quiche Lorraine I

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
This is a delicious recipe. Even though I didn't have cream, I was able to use whole milk and still have it come out very yummy. I listened to the other reviewers and reduced the milk to 1 1/2 cups. I will definitely make this again.

German Pancake

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
This is a spectacular recipe, both in taste and appearance. It's quick and easy to put together and it tastes delicious. The buttermilk syrup tastes like warm caramel and is the perfect topping for this dish. I substituted freshly ground soft wheat flour to make it a bit healthier and sucanat for the sugar in the buttermilk syrup. This will become a regular in our house. The first portion was gobled up so quickly I had to make a second batch. Fortunately one syrup recipe was plenty for both batches, with enough left over to dip some sliced apples in.

Chocolate Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2006
This is a delicious chocolate sauce. I altered the recipe to make it healthier by substituting sucanat with honey for the white sugar. I also reduced the water to just 1 cup. This makes a decadent dark chocolate milk! My whole family rated this 5 stars! It is far superior to the grocery store brand.

Extreme Banana Nut Bread 'EBNB'

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2006
Wow! This bread is fantastic. I have made it for friends and every time I hear that this is the best banana bread they've ever had. I've been using a 100 year old family recipe, but no more. I first made it just like the recipe's instructions. Then I made it with freshly ground soft wheat flour and sucanat with honey. Even my white flour friends loved it with the whole grain flour. I love this recipe! Why eat the bananas when you can let them ripen and make this bread?!

Beef Barley Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2006
This is an amazing vegetable soup. My family prefers this over all the others I have made. I added my own choice of vegetables: frozen, sliced carrots, minced onion, frozen green beans, frozen corn, and frozen diced hash brown potatoes. I used stew beef instead of the chuck roast, and I omitted the barley because my family doesn't like it. This recipe is going to be a staple in my house.

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2006
I have to agree with all of the rave reviews. My family went nuts over these. I followed the suggestions and divided the dough into two rounds and cut into 8 pieces each, but I think next time I will divide into thirds. I altered the recipe and used freshly ground soft wheat and sucanat with honey instead of the white sugar. I also sprinkled the scones with cinnamon sugar before baking. These will become my standard scone recipe from now on. My son is already begging for more!

Beet Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
After reading all the reviews, I was a little nervous about detecting the beet flavor, so I added chocolate chips, 1 tablespoon of cocoa, and topped the cake with the chocolate bundt cake icing found here at allrecipes. I served it to my guests at my daughter's baby shower and mentioned that there was a "secret" ingredient. No one could guess what it was. At the end of the shower, I told them it was beets and no one could believe it. The cake was almost totally gone at the end. This is a great recipe and I will definitely use it again.

E-Z Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2005
These biscuits are tender and tasty. As advised I left out the cream of tarter. Also, I made these with freshly ground whole wheat pastry flour and used sucanat with honey instead of white sugar. I will definitely be making these again.

Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2004
I made this for our family Fourth of July celebration. After reading the reviews, I opted to reduce the sugar to 1 cup, reduce the orange juice to 1/2 cup, substituted arrowroot for cornstarch and increase it to 2 tablespoons,increase the crust recipe by 1 1/2, substitute cold butter for shortening and use cookie cutter cut outs for the top crust instead of the lattice. I served it warm topped with vanilla ice cream. This is an amazing dessert and this recipe will become my staple for cobblers. The crust came out flaky and light -- really just perfect for a cobbler. Next time I would like to try substituting peach nectar for the orange juice. I made this again and followed the recipe, except I omitted the orange juice and cornstarch and increased crust by another half. I cannot tell you how delicious this is! I'm pie crust challenged, so I used my food processor to form the dough...it still came out incredible.

Kentucky Butter Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
What a delicious cake. It is a very light, tender cake with a rich buttery flavor. I ended up having to make two of these because the first one fell apart. I used a "rose" shaped bundt pan, and I think it was just too tender for that type of pan. When I baked it in a traditional bundt pan, it came out perfectly. I think I might try to double the glaze next time.

Garlic Prime Rib

Reviewed: May 11, 2004
I made this for Easter Dinner and have been told by several guests that it was better than any prime rib they had ever had. I followed the temperature suggestions and the roast came out perfectly.
