Sausage Bean Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2008
With some changes, this has become one of those dinners that everyone loves on a cold evening. I substitute red beans and kidney beans for the lima and great northern beans. I also add a dash of chili powder, oregano, garlic, and cayenne for a little more flavor. Steaming cornbread on the side tops off this fantastic comfort food!

Tomutter Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
This is a good quick meal for the children -- I upped the butter by two tablespoons and added some garlic and onion powder. A dash of Parmesan cheese is good too.

Runza Burgers

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2010
I did not have beef broth so I used water instead. I also used a rather large head of cabbage. My husband cannot eat gluten, so we ate this plain -- and loved it! Next time I will try to use beef broth and more meat (or perhaps less cabbage). The barbecue-ish smell (the simmering combined mustard and Worcestershire sauce smelled fantastic!) inspired us to add a touch of ketchup on top. We couldn't stop eating it!

Black Bean Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
After reading the reviews, I was optimistic about this recipe, but I was very disappointed with my own results. It was not near chocolatey enough and the texture was terrible. It really needs some cheweyness to make it bearable.. as it is, I won't be making it again!!

Chickpeas in Tomato Sauce With Feta and Wine

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
This is a great vegetarian dish. I doubled the recipe, left out the cheese due to allergies, substituted red wine vinegar, and used fresh tomatoes. I also added half a bag of frozen chopped spinach. Delicious!

Libby's® Pumpkin Cranberry Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
Great!!! Substituted half brown sugar for the sugar, and did half the oil to add half cup applesauce. I will be adding more cranberries next time.

Blueberry Pound Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2010
This is a great dense and moist pound cake that I can imagine would work well with other berries (I used frozen blueberries this time.) I added a few teaspoons of lemon juice to compliment the blueberries, and I think I will add more next time. The sugar lined pan didn't add much if anything -- next time I may leave it out. All in all, a great pound cake and I will be using again!

Fried Okra

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2007
This worked well for me, and I'm usually unsuccessful at deep frying! I let the egg soak on the (frozen, not fresh) okra for a full 10 minutes and then stirred in the cornstarch (halved with flour)and let it sit while the oil heated. I didn't stir it, just flipped them with a spatula a couple times, and they turned out great. Definitely will be using this recipe again!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
I had no issues with hardness (in fact, I found that they crumbled easily.) I did use whole white wheat flour. Delicious and packed with chocolate flavor!

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2008
I've had some trouble with this recipe, and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. The waterbath helps me little -- sometimes I end up with just a tiny crack, other times it's as deep and wide as the Grand Canyon. The last time I tried cooking it slower (and longer) it ended up being an underdone soupy mess. I just keep making it, though, because the flavor is FANTASTIC.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2008
"Best fish I've ever eaten" -- such were the compliments I received on this. I followed the recipe exactly... and will continue doing so on the frequent occasions I plan to make this!

If I could give this recipe 10 stars I would. This is truly the best banana bread out there.

Chocolate Crinkles II

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2007
This is a tried and true recipe I've been using for quite a while. To make rolling the balls easier, I just scoop up the right amount of dough and drop it in the powdered sugar, and after it's well coated, I roll it into a ball.

Herb Roasted Pork

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2007
I've made this quite a few times for company, and it never fails to get compliments. I always double the glaze, which goes great with rice. The past few times I've made it, I skipped putting on the glaze while the roast was cooking. After slicing the pork, I simply pour it all over the arranged platter. That way there's sure to be juicy flavor on every bite!

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2006
I've made this recipe many times and it always comes out very heavy and moist. I prefer a cornbread more light and crumbly.

Turnip Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
I had five turnips on hand, so I increased the turnips and also reduced the sugar to 1/4 cup. This is an interesting variation that makes a nice change from our usual turnips and bacon dish. Husband asked that I make it "occasionally".

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
I have made this with half a pound of sausage links, thinly sliced. I also used olive oil instead of water. Very good!!
