Lemon Sauce I

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2011
Waaaaay back when I was working, one of my co-workers would bring in gingerbread with a lemon sauce on the side that was incredibly good. I asked for the recipe and got put off until I realized she wasn't going to part with it! Well, Ta Da, this one is as good as it gets!! Very similar to the one my co-worker made but IMHO, this one definitely has more flavor. I served it over warm gingerbread and we loved it. I have a bread pudding recipe on this site and very anxious to try it with that as others have mentioned. Ginger, this recipe totally rocks! Thank you for sharing!!

Breakfast Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2011
Lots of crunch! Followed the recipe as written. These are over the top with layer after layer of contradicting flavors. Raisins, crispy bacon, cornflakes and only 3/4 cup of sugar. If you're looking for a sweet cookie, this isn't it, but it does have that joyful combination of somewhat sweet AND salty. We loved them and I have no problem making them again! BIG thank you for sharing!!

Apple Pie Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2011
I did a fairly fine dicing of the apples which helped to spread them throughout the batgter. These are easy to make and my 8 year old grandson proclaimed them as his "new" favorite muffin! The cinnamon brown sugar topping was the clincher. The aroma wafting through my house was mouth-watering! Thank you so much!!

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2011
I found several muffin recipes to make to go into DD's freezer for her and the children to grab, nuke and go before school and work. Everyone who did a taste test of these said I could add more anytime I wanted. They are super simple to make, totally delicious with easy, on hand ingredients. Thank you for sharing!

Chocolate Chip Oat Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2011
Now I know what Heaven smells like! Easy to make, simple ingredients and dynamite flavor. I made these for DD to have in her freezer so the kids could grab, nuke and go before school. I honestly thought there wouldn't be enough to go into the freezer when I had to shoo everyone away. DH ate 3 of them while they were still warm out of the oven. Thank you!

Basic Buttermilk Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2011
Knew it would be raining by morning and wanted to start DH's day with a bit of sunshine. So, now these are my sunshine muffins! Please know that the dough is VERY stiff and if I had not added about another 1/4 cup of buttermilk, the blueberries I added would have been destroyed if they had not been frozen. These muffins have a delightful flavor. DH took 3 to work for AM coffee break and just called to tell me to save this recipe. Done! I'm making some to go in DD's freezer and using the suggested chopped apples and cinnamon. BIG hit! BIG, thank you!!!

Breakfast Pies

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2011
These little gems should be re-named Lifesavers! DD's oven died a slow and painful death and new stove delivered in 2 weeks. She asked if I could whip up something for her and kiddos to heat and eat on the run. I laughed all the way to my recipe box for this breakfast treat. Fantastic to pull out of the freezer and nuke. Easy to make and with ingredients generally on hand. My DH will often grab 1 or 2 to take to work for AM coffee break and I've had one for lunch with a glass of juice. Versatile, to say the least. BIG thank you!!

K-Dub's Alfredo Ravioli Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2011
We knew we'd need something hearty and over-the-top tasty after everyone gathered to do our annual fall yard clean up. This was a major hit with adults and the kids. I also tossed in some baby spinach in a use it or lose it situation and the addition was perfect. Big tossed salad and 2 loaves of Amish White Bread (AR) and we wiped it out! Very good, very easy..oh yeah, prepping early in the day was right on! No problems doing this one again!!

Sweet and Sour Fish

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2011
Had to use a couple flounder fillets which I cut into 1 and 11/2 inch bite size peices. Seasoned peices with salt, pepper, and floured them lightly and sauted in 2 Tbs. hot oil. Added chopped bell pepper and onion in bite size peices and the pineapple chunks. Added reserved pineapple juice to soy sauce, sugar, ketchup, 1 tablespoon rice vinegar instead of water and only 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil. The flour dredged fish pieces thickened the sauce perfectly without using the flour in the liquid mixture. Poured sauce over fish in last seconds of saute and served over Chinese style sticky rice. Whoa. Hubby wanted to know why I hadn't made this before! Flavor was excellent, super easy and on hand ingredients made this a real winner. We look forward to having this again. Thank you for sharing! ***My 2nd time with this. Replaced flour with cornstarch and proceeded as with first time. Really, Really good served over hot sticky rice. Definitely a keeper!!

Delicious Grape Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
I love fast prep recipes and this is a prime example. Easy and with readily available ingredients. I had only red grapes and sliced them in half and it worked really well. Topped the dessert dishes with toasted almonds instead of brown sugar only because I had no brown sugar and 8 yo grandson suggested the nuts. I made this shortly after lunch to serve as dessert for dinner and left it in fridge for about 6 hours. Tart and sweet and crunchy. Colorful and delicious! Thank you for sharing!!

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2011
Ohhhhh, Erica, I love your mom and I love you for posting this. Today is my day to iron (yep, some of us still do) and feeling blah. Wanted a mouthful of something sweet, creamy and comforting. Dug through my recipes and found your recipe. I have to tell you, it lives up to its name and is beyond delicious. I added 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and followed the recipe as written. I have 4 generous servings and wondering if any of the remaining 3 ;o) will make it for dessert tonight? Maybe one, for the hubs. Excellent, easy, satisfying and a dish I look forward to preparing again!! Thank you.

Cabbage Stuffed Pita Pockets

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2011
I invited a neighbor girlfriend for an early lunch today since she's having some dental work this PM and dinner will be jello for her. I had all these ingredients except the whole wheat pita. I have regular pita's (wish I had purchased the WW ones, now). I made this recipe because of the ease and speed in prep and it just sounded good. This is really, flavorful. Will make an excellent hurry up dinner and would be great with a cup of hot soup during the cooler days ahead. Definitely a keeper and I appreciate you taking the time to share!

Maple Baked Pork Loin Roast

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2011
Janet P. Girrrlll, this was, as described; a pork loin so moist and tender we really had to wait to cut it into slices to serve. No one asked for a knife to cut the meat; it was that tender. I followed the pan searing suggestion you gave and although I did not have garlic I subbed a dash of garlic powder and added a dash of Texas Pete (like Frank's Louisiana Hot Sauce). No other changes were made. My 3 GK's (15, 11 and 8) all asked for seconds and the 8 yo helped me clean up the kitchen and said, "Gma, let's share another piece of meat", which we proceeded to do with a little extra sauce poured over. The sauce is delightfully different, and only slightly sweet even though it contains the maple syrup, it simply is not overly sweet. Super easy, super delicious and I look forward to doing this again! Many thanks for a welcome addition to my weeknight or Sunday dinner menu!!

Zucchini Boats on the Grill

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2011
Very attractive and super delicious side dish. I used a well-drained can of RoTel tomatoes with green chilies (that's all I had on hand), probably doubled the Cheddar cheese especially when I covered the tops of the zucchini after it was stuffed with Cheddar. I did cook the zucchini in a microwave safe dish with a little water for 5 minutes, as suggested by another reviewer an finished cooking them in a moderate oven (350 degrees) for about 30 minutes. Cheese had melted throughout and the spiceyness of the RoTel tomatoes guaranteed this dish would be on my list of great side dishes. Fantastic way to enjoy a big summer harvest. DH took the 4th one to work with him. That's all I need to know!! Many thanks for a great recipe

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2011
Just anothr one of those special recipes that make me smile when I go to make it. Why? Because of it's simplicity, because of ease in prep and prep time, but mostly becaue of the request to not wait so long to make it again! Killer!

Refreshingly delightful! I made this subbing watermelon for the raspberries since the berries in my store weren't all that! Kids loved it and DH finished it. Win-win. I look forward to doing this again in the hot summer days ahead. Thank you!!

Green Bean Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2011
Our first green beans out of the garden and I tried this recipe for 6. Didn't use nearly as much PB, since that's such a strong flavor, only had one clove of garlic, which was just right for us, but followed remaining instructions to the letter. Those beans were eaten well ahead of my entree and I had 2 little faces ( 8 and 11 years old) asking if there was more! Totally delightful recipe and I can't wait to do it again at the request of everyone! When I can get the little guys to eat their veggies first, you can bet this will be a keeper. MANY thanks. We just harvested green beans for the first time (July 2012) and everyone asked me to "cook the beans with the peanut butter". I did and increased the recipe to 12 servings! Not one bean left over. I can't help but giggle when something is this easy AND this good, AND attracts the tastebuds of my entire family!
