Amish White Bread

Reviewed: May 24, 2014
I chose this recipe as my first foray into bread baking and I'm so glad I did! Thank you to all the reviewers who helped me make he decision! This is super easy and comes out delicious! I did not need the full 6 cups of flour, I end up using about 5 1/2. I also took the suggestions to cut the sugar by half, and I personally would not want the bread any sweeter. The rises took longer than the recipe states but I just know to make bread on a day I'm in no hurry. This is my standard recipe! I love how it can be changed up without affecting the end result. I made with half wheat flour and some flax meal last time and it came out just as perfect as the original. Cannot say enough good things!!

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
I cannot believe key lime pie is so easy! This is wonderful, my dad goes crazy for it. I usually add some extra juice and zest for a more limey taste. Will be making this often I'm sure!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
These taste great and the batter is really nice and thick so the blueberries don't sink to the bottom. I tried them at first without a sugary topping, but they were a bit bland. The next time I made them, I added half a lemon's worth of zest and the topping. WAY better. Also great with just course sugar on top. These do tend to be crumbly and fall apart but I never mind because they taste so good.

Gluehwein

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2008
This wasn't as good as I was hoping. I didn't really taste any of the spices, and I added extra. It was just warm wine for the most part. Took it to a Christmas Eve party and not many people drank it.

Unstuffing Side Dish

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2008
Very yummy and so easy! I might go without the sausage next time because I just really enjoy the veggies and bread. I didn't need as much broth as was called for. I just added it little by little until it was moist.

Banana Cream Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
Great recipe! The pudding was amazing (made from scratch is always better). I used flour and didn't have a problem with a 'floury' taste or texture. I did use less sugar (1/2 cup) and also added two mashed bananas to the custard after it was cooked. I melted some semi-sweet chocolate chips and put that in the bottom of my crust, followed by a layer of sliced bananas, then put the pudding in. I used the three egg whites and made meringue for the top. The result, a very pretty and delicious pie! Because of the meringue, I did bake the pie at 325 until golden. No problems with runny filling. Will definately use this as my standard banana pie recipe!

Traditional Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2008
My first time making a stuffed pepper and it was simple as can be! Came out great. I opted for a longer baking time rather than pre-boil the pepper because I like to give all the flavors time to meld together in the oven. Used tomato soup instead of sauce. Topped the pepper off with cheddar cheese. Delish, I will make this again.

Thanksgiving Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
I made this as a Thanksgiving breakfast bread. It is so moist and the flavors are wonderful! I used Craisins and also added chopped walnuts and everyone loved it. I didn't have the size bread pans indicated by the recipe but it fit fine into 1 pan 9 1/2 x 5 1/2 x 2 1/2. Will be making this again!!

Butternut Squash, Apple, Onion Au Gratin

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
I was a bit underwhelmed by this but I think it was because in the Thanksgiving whirlwind of cooking, I forgot to add the cheese on top. Without it, the dish is a bit bland but I fully intend on trying this again sometime with the cheese. My family did enjoy it so I suppose I can't really complain!

Cranberry Chutney I

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
Everyone absolutely RAVED about this! It was so flavorful and the apple-cider vinegar gave it a nice twist (but I only used 1/3 cup). I loved that it wasn't just cranberries, the other fruits gave nice textures and the apples balanced out the tartness of the cranberries. I used whole cranberry sauce instead of fresh cranberries and it turned out fine, I just had to boil it down longer because of the extra fluid. Will definately be making this for future Thanksgivings!

Cranberry Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
Really loved this cake, as did the rest of my family. I added 1/2 cup of Craisins to the batter because I wanted more cranberry flavor and it turned out great. The frosting is very soft but all I did was leave the cake in the fridge until I was ready to serve and the icing firmed up just fine.

Pumpkin Cheesecake I

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
This tasted great; I made it as a Thanksgiving desert. It was very delicate and tended to fall apart when I served it but no one seemed to mind! I made a simple syrup with brandy to pour on as a sauce and everyone loved it. I would make this again.

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
I stuffed a confetti squash and put this out as a pre-meal dip with crackers and celery on Thanksgiving. Everyone liked it. An easy dish with a nice presentation.
