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.

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!

Marshmallow Icing

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2009
Delicious and just a little different! The first step took about 12 minutes for me, but after that everything clicked along and turned out perfectly. Combined with the Egg-Free, Dairy-Free, Nut-Free Cake recipe from this site (my chocolate cake standby because it's so moist and easy), I made "S'mores on a Cloud" cupcakes by topping the marshmallow icing with crushed graham crackers and chocolate shavings.

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2009
Easy and tasty! I didn't use the onion powder, but the end result was still so good!

Scrambled Egg Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2007
These were simply delicious! What a yummy breakfast, brunch or lunch meal! I doubled the cheese (I won't next time, as it was unnecessary), added some coriander and parsley and omitted the green pepper because I didn't have any. But I'll definitely add the pepper when I make these again. Yum!

Strawberry Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
Five stars because of the easy preparation and health benefits, four stars on the taste. I might add a different fruit next time. Maybe peaches? And just a little bit more sugar!

Deep South Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
The shortening worked like a charm. I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into large chunks, so my cooking time was less. The chicken was very moist inside and crispy outside. Delish!

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.

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.

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.

Chicken Salad on a Tortilla

Reviewed: May 31, 2007
This made a tasty, quick dinner. Here's what I did: 1. Cooked the chicken indoors, then grilled outside for a few minutes for that nice flavor. 2. Used warmed corn tortillas instead of flour. 3. Spread just a small amount of mayo on the warm tortillas. 4. Cubed and heaped the chicken onto the mayo'd tortillas. 5. Grated colby-jack cheese over the warm chicken. 6. Topped the chicken with the salad ingredients. Yum!

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.

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!

Kifta

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2007
This was just awesome--really different and fun to try. My husband and three year old son gobbled up this Middle Eastern meatloaf! I especially liked that no eggs were needed in the recipe (most "regular" meatloaf recipes call for them), as my son is allergic. Next time we'll buy some pita bread and other goodies to make this meal even better!

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!

Egg-Free Dairy-Free Nut-Free Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2008
This chocolate cake definitely deserves a better name, because it was amazingly moist, chocolately, and delicious. Allergy-sufferer or not, you will love this recipe. I only made two changes, one by accident and one on purpose: I substituted Hershey's Cocoa Powder Special Dark for the regular cocoa powder (that was on purpose), and omitted the chocolate chips (by accident). We didn't miss the chocolate chips at all (maybe because of the dark cocoa?). I made the batter into cupcakes, which took about 20-22 minutes to bake. So-o-o-o good with coconut pecan frosting!

No-Salt Seasoning

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2007
Look out, Mrs. Dash! This is a great, low-cost alternative to salt alternative. I played around with a few ingredients, omitting the celery salt (which I didn't have) and substituting dried minced onion for the onion powder. So far we've used this seasoning four times in the last week, including for grilled chicken and oven fries. Good!
