Berry Crumb Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2013
followed other reviewers' advice about using 1/2 butter/1/2 shortening. Made for a potluck using frozen mixed berries - at first I thought the filling tasted too much like a Pop-Tart but everyone loved them and I've made it for several potlucks since then.

Chicken and Biscuit Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2013
My kids' current favorite and less work than the chicken pot pie I used to make. I also add cubed blanched potatoes, sauteed mushrooms, bell pepper, and frozen peas and corn to the filling and use "Chef Jon's Buttermilk Biscuits" recipe instead of the buttermilk baking mix (scoop blobs of dough to dot the top of the casserole - no need to roll and flatten balls of dough)

Poppyseed Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2013
My favorite kind of recipe - simple, easy to make, uses ingredients I already have, and tastes better than the pre-made version at a fraction of the cost. I use my immersion blender and mix this up in a large measuring cup and then store it in a repurposed rice vinegar bottle. Thanks to this recipe and the one for Honey Mustard Dressing II, I haven't had to purchase pre-made salad dressing for years!

Rich Chocolate Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2012
Was looking for a recipe like the one that I used in high school that was on the can of Ghirardelli ground chocolate and cocoa powder that used melted butter, and this one works well for me. I don't like to frost my brownies (frosted brownies are a little TOO sweet IMO) but I *do* like to add a handful of chocolate chips and a bit of grated orange zest to the batter ;-)

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
yum... my only caution is that after you make these, you'll never be content with pancakes from a packaged mix again. For a fun kid-friendly twist, slice bananas into discs and dunk them in batter and cook on the griddle - you'll get perfectly round little fruit-filled pancakes that are great for snacks as well as breakfast (the banana gets a sweet pudding-like consistency) - make a bunch and reheat in toaster oven

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2011
great base for customizing with whatever you have on hand. I added trail mix the first time, and the second time added one mashed banana, 1/2c chocolate chips, and an extra 1/2 c rolled oats. thanks for a tasty, simple, and easy to adapt recipe!

Swedish Angel Crisps

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
followed suggestions of using cinnamon sugar and rolling dough into hazelnut size balls (1/2 tablespoon measuring spoon gave just the right size IMO) and they turned out beautiful. I usually chill my dough so it doesn't spread too much but this dough was fine baking at room temp. on parchment paper.

Spinach Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
good, but canned soup makes it a bit salty. will try tweaking it with homemade substitution for cream of mushroom soup next time

good and adaptable - I used dried cranberries and slivered almonds instead of raisins and pecans

Honey Mustard Dressing II

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2010
This is my favorite type of Allrecipes winner - something that's easy to make, tastes great (kids love it), uses ingredients you already have in the kitchen, and replaces a more expensive packaged product. I mixed a double batch up in a pyrex measuring cup and poured it into a clean empty honey squeeze bottle that I had saved for convenient dispensing. I'll never have to *buy* Honey Mustard dressing again - thanks Mary Ann!

Peppermint Bark

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
easy and tasty. I used the mini-chopper attachment of my immersion blender to break up the mints. Will make again next winter for holiday gifts!

Szechuan Spicy Eggplant

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
I'm giving it 4 stars because I modified it a bit to suit my tastes: reduced soy sauce to 2T, used Chinese eggplants instead of one large eggplant, substituted about 1/2 lb. ground pork and 1/2 lb. cubed tofu for the shrimp and ground beef. Served over rice and it turned out great.

Grandmother's Pound Cake II

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
I was looking for a recipe like the one my mom used to make to bring to a visit with a cousin who loved my mom's pound cake. This was the closest to what I remembered of the recipe she used. Everyone loved it! PS: like other reviewers have mentioned, be sure to cream the living daylights out of the butter and sugar to get enough air into the batter for it to rise properly. Using buttermilk instead of regular milk also helps.

Purple Plum Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2009
great use of the bushels of plums we got from our trees. Quick and tasty, not too sweet. Took others' suggestions of using the Flaky Pie Crust recipe and adding some blueberries to the filling. A keeper!
