Strawnana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2006
Oh my goodness these things are so yummy. I made one loaf, a bunch of "normal" sized muffins and a bunch of mini muffins. My 18 month old daughter just ate three of those! I used yogurt AND oil (half and half) and only used half the eggs it called for. (Plain Lowfat Yogurt is a great substitute for eggs and oil!) I used my food chopper on the strawberries so there were little chunks and I mashed the banana with a fork so there were big chunks of that as well. DELISH!!! And like others, I just needed to use up my strawberries and bananas! Great recipe!

Apple Dumplings I

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2006
I peeled 2 apples and used an apple corer that also made 8 equal segments. I rolled out a Grand's Flaky Biscuit and placed 3 or 4 quarters inside the dough. I pulled the sides up and pinched at the top. This reminded me of an old fashioned apple dumpling that I grew up eating. I baked it in the oven for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Meanwhile, I melted on the stove, butter, sugar, vanilla and water. I let it come to a quick boil and then took it off the heat. I think that helped to thicken it back up. (although, I think you could use less water in the recipe) Then I poured that over the dumplings and I think since the pinched dough was at the top, the "juice" poured down inside the dumpling and helped to flavor the apples. I sprinkled with cinnamon and baked 30 minutes more. I served with cinnamon ice cream.

Sausage Crescent Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2006
Even though while cooking these the fumes alone made my arteries harden, they are awesome! I made one "log" with sausage and cream cheese in the middle. I used one package of crescent rolls rolled out with my rolling pin to make sure all the triangles were sealed, then put it seam side down and put shredded cheddar on top. I baked at 350º for 15 minutes then turned it up to 400º for 5 minutes. PERFECT. Served with scrambled eggs and applesauce.

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2006
I love this recipe! This is the third time I've made it and it is always a hit! I love the oregano in it so add a little extra. I usually do 3/4 marsala and 1/4 sherry and watch the salt I add in the flour mixture. I take the chicken out of the pan and sautee the mushrooms in the brown bits from the chicken because I like my mushrooms more "done". I served it with baked potatoes and it was mighty tasty.

Pumpkin Pie Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2006
I used spice cake since I didn't have yellow. I also added a cup of semi-sweet choc. chips to the pumpkin mixture. I used sweetened cond. milk instead of whole milk. I added two teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice to the can of pumpkin I used. It was really easy to make and the house smelled wonderful! I posted a picture of my finished bars. They truly were EASY to prepare and loved by my hubby and 20 month old daughter. DON'T FORGET TO REFRIGERATE IT AFTER IT HAS COOLED.

Peanut Butter/Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2006
YUMMY! I took the advice of others and mixed the butter with the graham cracker crumbs and then add the condensed milk to that mixture and mixed it in. Then I put it in the bottom of the pan. I added Hershey's Special Dark chocolate chips, almond slivers and topped it off with caramel sauce (ice cream topping). Baked for 20 minutes and that was that. I allowed it to cool and then refrigerated it. I couldn't wait for it to get cool! DELICIOUS and so many options to make it your "own" creation. THANKS!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2006
If I could kiss you Phoebe, I would. My husband loves tilapia and he always wants me to get it at the store. I never knew what to do with it UNTIL NOW!!! HOLY MOLY GIRL! This is awesome! To "STEPHERS below, did you broil both sides of the fish first? when you broil it it gets dryer and the mixture should stay in place. Also was your cheese/mayo mixture sort of thick? Try that next time.

Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2008
I just sprinkled Montreal Steak Seasoning on the loin (1.7 lb piece) and then poured in the liquids. Marinated in a bag for an hour and a half. Baked at 350º for 45 minutes. But my piece was a little smaller/thinner than the one in the recipe. Let it rest!!!!! It was the juiciest most tender piece of pork I ever ate. Served with stuffing and home-canned red beets. Delicious!

Mock Filets

Reviewed: May 23, 2008
Very good! I used yellow mustard instead of powder in the sauce. I also used onion powder cuz I didn't have onions. I used thin sliced bacon and only broiled on one side for 5 minutes and then flipped them and topped with sauce and broiled for 3 minutes and then turned the broiler off and just left them in the oven set at 350º for about 10 minutes. Perfect. I want more right now!

Polly Welby's Excellent Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2007
I think the trick is, you need to fold the whipped cream INTO the chocolate. (the recipe says to add the chocolate to the cream) And I added a teaspoon of sugar to the cream before whipping. Whipped till soft peaks formed and then melted the chocolate in the microwave at 45 second intervals. Put a big dallop of whipped cream into the chocolate and fold in (this should temper the chocolate instead of shocking it and making it chunky), add more spoonfuls of cream gently folding until it's all incorporated. Hopefully that will provide a better consistency for everyone that's having trouble getting it smooth.

Sarah's Banana Bread Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
Delicious. However... She mentions coconut twice in the descriptions and it's NO WHERE in the recipe or directions. I used 1/2 cup mini choc. chips instead of walnuts. I also used whole wheat flour instead of white. She mentions using "muffin cups in muffin tins". I believe she meant paper cupcake cups. I used them. I highly recommend them. No clean up! I had more than 12 cupcakes though. (20 mins at 350!) So I sprayed PAM in a ramekin and put the rest in it. (25 mins at 350 cuz it was bigger.) It was delicious with some ice cream warm out of the oven.

Cheddar Artichoke Quiche Cups

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2008
This was very tasty. I made it for my moms group and it was gobbled up. I doubled it so I made it in a 7x10 glass casserole dish. 30 minutes at 325. I didn't do the hot pepper sauce but instead I did hot pepper flakes. just a shake or two. ALSO, an overnight tip. I mixed the egg mixture leaving out the breadcrumbs. I also sauteed the onion and garlic and mixed it into the chopped artichokes. In the a.m. I mixed it all together and added 1/2 cup of sharp cheddar to the mix and 1/2 cup on top before baking. Turned out great and the prep work was mostly done the night before!

Italian Salad Croutons

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
Made it with sour dough bread, real butter and "McCormick Italian Herb Seasoning" (the grinder) it was perfect! 325 for 25 minutes but my bread cubes were larger than 1 inch. Chewy on the inside, crunchy and flavorful outside!

Best Easy Chicken Croquettes

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2007
I omitted the celery and onion because I don't like either ingredient. I used my food processor to chop the chicken. My two year old liked them and my husband did too. he said they were very filling. which is funny cuz it's just chicken and spices dusted in crumbs. For freezing I made into patties and rolled in crumbs. Put one layer in container and put soup in ziptop baggie. I'll just thaw well and fry. (I used vegetable oil.)

Ham 'n' Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
Delicious but I would call this a Ham & Egg Strata. --DIY chef Margie Potts calls a Strata "a southern dish that falls somewhere between a family size omelet and a crustless quiche." Either way this recipe is great and easy. I used jarred pimentos because my family doesn't like green peppers.

Peanut Butter Dreams

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2008
Yum. I divided the recipe in half... or else I would've eaten all 60 of them myself. I softened the butter in the microwave for 30 seconds. I added the PB and put it in the microwave again for 20 seconds. It needed help. Or I'd have been stirring it forever trying to get it to combine. I added the sugar and used my hands to combine all of that together. Finally I added the cereal and used my hands again to mix. I think it would've been very time consuming to just use a spoon.

Tim's Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
Okay, a couple pointers: make sure you start the pasta well in advance of the cheese sauce. My sauce was VERY thick WAY before the water was even at a boil. TASTE your cheese sauce before you add the pasta to it. Mine was VERY blah and I even contemplated adding some seasoned salt to the sauce but just added salt till I liked the flavor. I topped it with day old baguette that I coarsely chopped in my food processor. I did NOT put melted butter on top of that. Trying to find a way to keep this dish a little healthy. (Yeah, right.) I did not salt the casserole before baking. Some people have different tastes so I just put salt on the table. (But salt is IMPERATIVE in the sauce. Or, find some EXTRA sharp cheese to guarantee flavor.) It was good but not to-die-for...

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2008
I'm not through all the reviews but I am surprised no one said anything about filling the muffin tins to the top. I did, cuz I thought I'd go for the "bakery" look and wow, what a mistake. My smoke detector went off and thank goodness it did. My muffins were overflowing in the oven. I put the muffin tins on a big sheet pan and completed cooking. They look good but I wish the instructions told you to put it on a sheet pan to avoid overflowing onto your oven floor. Getting them out of the pan is another feat all on its own. They taste delicious, however. Just wouldn't recommend filling them to the brim.
