Traditional White Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2013
I've made this bread twice using unbleached all-purpose flour and oil instead of bread flour and lard...happy to report that it's still amazing! So easy and so very delicious. The bread tastes great fresh and makes perfect, crunchy toast.

Lemon Sugar Tea Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2006
Awesome cookies! They taste like something your grandma would bake, but weren't very hard to make. Thank you for this great recipe!

Easy Vegan Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2009
Smooth, creamy, delicious, and enjoyed by all (vegan or no). You'll no doubt find it necessary to decrease the amount of powdered sugar.

Chocolate Chip Cookies (Gluten Free)

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2009
Amazing! Wow! Can't believe how good these cookies are. Definitely use the egg-replacer (the equivalent to 2 eggs) and beat until frothy and thickened. These probably were the best cookies we've tried since finding out our children are allergic to dairy and eggs. We substituted regular flour. NOTE: Bake these cookies at a lower temp (350 degrees) for a 9-10 minutes; otherwise they spread too thin.

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2007
So moist! I added a whole apple inside the chicken, forgot about the salt and added thinly sliced fresh garlic under the skin. This was a deliciously basic recipe for playing around with in my own kitchen.

Vegan Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2007
Amazing brownies: I can't believe they don't have eggs in them! Thanks for a great dessert recipe for my son with dairy and egg allergies.

Easy Caramelized Onion Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2007
Well, this was just great, even with the error in directions (you definitely should leave the dish uncovered for the second simmer). I used chicken broth in place of water and omitted the salt. We were so impressed--with garlic mashed potatoes these chops tasted like a dish in a nice restaurant!

Tasty White Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2007
This bread was so-o-o-o good! I split the dough into one loaf of bread and about 12 cinnamon rolls. Yum, yum, yum! Next time I'm going to try using whole wheat flour to see what happens.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
I've made this recipe three or 4 times now with Aunt Zula's Christmas Cutouts recipe from this site (highly recommend that no-chill sugar cookie recipe too). I usually have to add an additional one teaspoon or so of milk (I use rice milk due to family dairy allergies). I also substitute either lemon or orange extract for the almond. Yummy and so pretty!

Aunt Zula's Christmas Cutouts

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2008
Wow! This was the easiest, yummiest sugar cookie recipe ever. I was even able to make these allergen-free for my children by substituting Ener-G Egg Replacer and vanilla-flavored rice milk for the regular milk and eggs. Combined with the Sugar Cookie Icing recipe on this site, we've made this recipe five times in the last three weeks. A couple of hints: 1. Combine dry ingredients before adding 2. Use dusting of flour when rolling out 3. 1/2 inch thick made the best cookies

Green Beans Amandine

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2008
These beans were astonishingly easy to make and delicious to eat. I didn't realize we were out of almonds until the beans were already in the pot coming to a boil, but this recipe was great even without the nuts. I also substituted a generous sprinkling of Mrs. Dash for the seasoned salt. Other than that, I kept everything the same and these beans were GOOD. My four year old gobbled them up and a friend already asked for the recipe!

Roast Pork with Maple and Mustard Glaze

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
We've made this pork roast recipe several times in the last month. (It's so-o-o-o good in the slow cooker and smells amazing all day.) I wish the glaze was a little thicker, but other than that this is a near-perfect recipe!

Creamed Eggs

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2007
This recipe brought back childhood Easter memories! The creamed eggs were so-o-o good; they tasted just like my mother's. My husband had never tried creamed eggs before, but he said this is a five-star recipe for sure, too! (I guess that means you get ten stars from this family.)

The Best Banana Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2007
This dessert was better than our sainted aunt's famous Southern-style banana pudding. My family loved it, and they're used to the best! I used half as much of the sweetened condensed milk and only two bananas.

Super Sausage Gravy

Reviewed: May 27, 2007
Super easy and so delicious! What a great recipe! Who knew?! Edited to add: Since trying this recipe the first time, we've discovered that our son is allergic to dairy. We substituted rice milk for the regular milk and this was STILL OUTSTANDING! Can't believe how good it is.

Balsamic Bruschetta

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2008
We made this bruschetta because we had a bumper crop of fresh tomatoes, and our Labor Day guests raved about how fresh and delicious the bruschetta tasted. We only made one change: Because of dairy allergies in the family, we put the parmesan cheese on the side in a little bowl and let people sprinkle as desired. (Most didn't seem to think it was needed anyway because the tomato mixture was so flavorful.) We bought a large loaf of day-old French bread and sliced the bread as if for sandwiches, and then cut each slice in half again. Toasted for about 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees, the bread was crunchy with a slightly chewy center. So good!

Black Bean Hummus

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2008
Fantastic dip! You'll enjoy this even if you don't particularly care for traditional hummus. We found this an easy-to-prepare recipe, and the flavor was even better the second day. The only change we made was omitting the salt, which you don't miss if you serve the dip with tortilla chips.

Supreme Strawberry Topping

Reviewed: May 11, 2008
Simple, easy, and oh so tasty! For a nice filling for tarts or crescent rolls, add some cornstarch to thicken the mixture and don't put the strawberries in the food processer.

Balsamic-Glazed Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
We've never had white wine in this house when making this salmon recipe, but even with chicken broth this is an exceptional, company-worthy dish. Edited to add: The white wine adds even more dimension to the taste of this salmon. Highly recommend doubling the glaze, as it is delicious and you will want more!

Cowboy Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2007
Hold on and let me put down my second warm, chewy cookie for a second to type this...okay, these were amazing! I was skeptical because the oil, butter and sugar looked odd at first, but as soon as I added the eggs, the dough began to look good. And were these cookies ever good! I guess those cowboys really know what they're doing. My changes: Substitution of butter for margarine and the addition of one teaspoon of vanilla. I highly recommend making these!
