Salmon Cakes II

Reviewed: May 8, 2010
These were very good. I did not use the parsley or cheddar (dh does not care for cheese, imagine!). I also substituted the 10 ritz for the bread crumbs and added an extra egg. Added 2 tablespoons Miracle Whip and 1 tablespoon dill weed and upped the hot sauce. Made 6 patties. Put together early in the day to cook for dinner, so they were in the fridge much longer than the 20 minutes and did not dust with flour until just before cooking.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2010
These are easy and delicious. Melted the butter and added 1/2 cup white and 1/2 cup organic coconut palm brown sugar to that while slightly whipping the eggs (suggestion of redzinner). Mixed the white wheat flour (had no all purpose) with the baking powder, salt, 3/4 cup chopped walnuts, and 1/2 cup cocoa. Added the eggs and vanilla to the melted butter/sugar mixture and then gently incorporated the dry ingredients. Used Baker's Joy spray in place of grease and flour for the pan and baked in a 9x9 for about 20 minutes (next time will use the suggested 8x8, as the brownies were a little thin). Did not frost as have never really cared for frosted brownies. Yummy

Fruit and Vegetable Pork

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2010
Followed the changes suggested by Podger1: browned the chops, removed them from the pan, then sauteed the onions in the drippings. In a separate bowl, put in my chopped Granny Smith apples and then sprinkled the corn starch over these and tossed it to coat. If using a 14 oz. can of sauerkraut, increase brown sugar to 3/4 cup. Add the sauerkraut, brown sugar, and sauteed onion with all the drippings to the apples and mix well. Place the pork chops in a casserole dish, cover them with the sauerkraut mixture, place lid or foil over. Then, cooked at 300 for several hours. Tender, flavorful, filling, easy. Thanks for sharing.

Amy's Healthy Fruity

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
This is a tasty treat. Like iheartnitz, did not have soy powder, so subbed wheat germ. Used all frozen fruits, as that was what was in house. Also used lowfat Dannon vanilla yogurt in place of plain. Only used one banana, as don't really care for them. Thanks for sharing! Update: used apple fiber with pectin in place of the wheat germ, fresh blueberries, frozen strawberries and only one bannana. Even better!

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
This was great - tender and tasty! Used one can of cream of chicken with herbs and one can of beef gravy for the soups. Heated the gravy n the microwave before pouring over the chops and cooked the chops about 30 minutes in the oven first. Thanks for sharing!

Cheesy Sour Cream and Salsa Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
We tried to liven this up after tasting with Tabasco, red pepper and other spices, but to no avail. We tried both heated and chilled. No one ate it after tasting. Not bad, just not much flavor.

Honey Cornbread

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2009
Excellent cornbread! Followed the suggestions of several others and used only 3/4 tablespoon baking powder and added 1/2 teaspoon salt. Baked in an 8" pan, which required slightly longer cooking. Did not have a problem with crumbling, as some others have mentioned - maybe they are not allowing it to cool a bit before slicing. Thanks for sharing!

Crustless Cranberry Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
Some enjoyed this; some did not. Pretty tart - even with streusel topping. Used fresh berries.

Foolproof Rib Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2009
Followed the directions exactly, with some trepidation during the 3-hour in oven period, as we were afraid it would get cold. Excellent, though, and enjoyed by all. Thanks for sharing!

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009

Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
Wanted to try this because of all the reports of how bad corn syrup is for us, and these do not use it. They are tasty, but not that gooey yumminess we really look for when we splurge on pecan pie, so will probably not use often. Pecan pie is a special treat around here, so guess we will stick with that rare use of corn syrup.

Blue Ribbon Overnight Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
How easy it was to get compliments with these! Love that they do not take up room in the fridge as most overnight rolls do. As suggested by many others, used 2 teaspoons of yeast and made sure the milk was 100 degrees when adding to yeast and sugar. Mixed together with dough hook. The next day, rolled out large rolls with buttered hands and placed in Pam-ed muffin cups. Covered and allowed to rise at least an hour. Everyone loved these.

Chocolate Oatmeal Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
Chocolatey (used about 1/2 cup cocoa) and yummy. Feels a little good for you too - used about 1/3 cup applesauce in place of 1/3 cup of butter and added butter to make the difference to equal 1/2 cup. Thanks for sharing.

My Amish Friend's Caramel Corn

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
Although this certainly doesn't need more 5 star reviews, I'll write mine in hopes it helps me remember and may help someone else a little when they try it. It turned out great in the end, but, following the advice of barefootlady, I only cooked 45 minutes at 200. In my oven, at least, that was a mistake. Even after cooling, it was so gummy it was one big clump. The next day, I put it back in the oven, at 250 this time, and cooked, stirring after 15 minutes, another 30 minutes. Then, I dumped it out on waxed paper, again, and it was just as it should be. I also took a little of discobunny's advice and used about 2 1/2 bags of Orville's microwave butter popcorn and added a couple of tablespoons of molasses to the Karo with good results. Don't leave out the nuts! It's all yummy.

Glazed Apple Cream Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
As a breakfast apple pastry, this is good. As an apple pie, not so much. Used 4 granny smiths instead of 2, thank goodness, or we would not have known there were apples in there.

Mini Meatloaves

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
These were great. Ground up the oatmeal in mini-food processor to disguise it somewhat from DH. Made in muffin tins as suggested by Catalogrrr. Thanks for sharing.

Pizzawiches

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
This might have been a better dip than sandwich filling, as it was a little runny for a sandwich. Pretty good flavor, none distinguishable. I know - it doesn't tout itself to be special; but, with all the reviews, I thought it would be. . .

Old-World Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
Thought this would be better, from all the reviews. Not bad, but not a crowd pleaser. Added cooked brown lentils to thicken, which added a good flavor. Left out the celery, as do not care for cooked celery.
