Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
I made it as a side dish using 5 medium sized Gala apples to go with a pork roast and roasted veggies. The comment from DH was "you did NOT get this out of a jar"! Super easy and absolutely delicious!

Homemade Laundry Soap

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
My mom made this using Ivory Soap finely grated. Our clothes smelled so sweet and fresh. I haven't used it but would love to and also share with DD just to bring back the memories of the best smelling clothes ever! The price we pay today for detgergent would certainly compel one to give it a try!

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
I owe you an apology! I found these last year and made them to go on my Christmas cookie plates for neighbors. I made them again in February because they looked beautiful for a Valentine's dessert. GK's and DH just loved them. I made them again in September for grandsons 3rd grade class. Not one has survived either occasion! Grape jelly, raspberry, strawberry and blueberry have been used with great success. I was just looking through my cookie list and saw them and knew that they'd be on this years cookie platters as well. My DH took Valentine Day cookie leftovers to work and i shared the recipe with 4 of the gals in his office. To say they are a favorite is an understatement. I'm softening some butter "as we speak"! Thank you for a proven winner!!

Peach Pork Picante

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2011
Perfect! Looking for something different and hit the jackpot!! Easy is an understatement with the availability of ingredients and quick to prepare. The peach preserves give it a surprise slight hint of sweetness and the taco seasoning was right on target. I made this for 3 adults and 3 GK's from 8 to 15. DH got up this AM and wanted to know if there was enough left over for him to take to work for his lunch. Well, yeah, but I was looking forward to having it for MY lunch. I conceded defeat, lovingly. ChristyJ, thank you. I look forward to doing this again!! Six thumbs up!!

Coconut Cream Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
This brought back a lot of fond memories of the cream pies we had that my mom made for Sunday dinner desserts. I didn't have enough milk on hand for the 2 cups called for so I subbed with 2 cups of canned coconut milk. (Not the sweet stuff!) This pie is positively decadent! I had a slice for breakfast (cause I'm the Gma!) and the flavors have combined to make it even richer tasting. Refrigeration is key to making this pie over the top. Thank you so much for sharing and I look forward to doing this one often.

Breakfast Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
I've made them several times now and each time they disappear without a trace. I get about 20 medium sized cookies out of each batch so it's well worth making double. I made a double batch and wrapped them 2 each in plastic wrap and then put prewrapped cookies in one large freezer bag. This way, the children can go get a cookie bundle, toss it into their book bag and at snack time they have a delicious homemade cookie. My DH has taken them to work and I've shared this recipe with everyone in his office. They are even better when left to sit in an airtight cookie jar overnight . Can't say how they'd be after a day or so because they simply don't last that long in this house! Louise, thank you for sharing!!

Ryan's Reverse Popper Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2011
Most excellent! I used only 3 jalapeno peppers, only because I was serving it to the children as well as adults, out of our garden and diced them VERY fine. Why is my oregano jar empty? Anyway, added a bit more cumin and used 1/3 fat cream cheese as that was what I had on hand. My GKs loved it and my DD asked for recipe after her first bite. Really, really good and I can see this as part of our Super Bowl celebration! Way to go, Cat! ***I made these over weekend with peppers out of our garden. Didn't have garlic but had several shallots. Peeled and thinly sliced 3 shallots and fried them in EVOO until lightly browned. Drained them until they were crispy, broke them into small pieces and put them into the cream cheese mixture. Have mercy! Daughter is making these for EMT meeting tomorrow. She sure picked a winner!!!!

Beef Barley Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
I followed Happyhousewife's suggestions and she is right on having a pot full. However, that was exactly what I was looking for. DH took some to work and when he heated it for lunch, several coworkeers asked if he'd bring in a copy of the recipe. Happy to oblige! This is delicious. Even better heated up. Served with hot homemade buttermilk biscuits one night and a homemade French baguette for another mealtime. This warms the innards and comforts the soul and will be a regular on our winter menu! Thank you for sharing!!

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!!
