Quiche Lorraine II

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2009
I think there is too much liquid in this recipe, so maybe reduce cheese or milk. Mine didn't firm up either. Didn't have the crust problem, but I did hand make my own crust.

Honey Butter Yule Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2009
Not salty, great tasting. Omitted optional cloves and cut down on butter like previous reviewer suggested. Mine was starting to burn on the top corner 2/3 of the time through, so maybe to cook time can be shortened...

Farfalle with Ham and Peas

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2009
I substituted frozen peas for canned ones and it worked fine. I thought this recipe was good, although if you happened to get a scoop of just pasta without meat or peas the pasta tasted a bit bland. My husband really like it though.

Clinton's Special Vegetarian Quiche

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
I really liked this. Husband and brother-in-law liked it okay, but they're not quiche lovers like me. I added garlic and bacon bits. Next time I am going to dice the tomatoes, because the tomato skin becomes like a string when trying to cut slices. Will make again!

Quick and Almost-Professional Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2009
I found this frosting to be really thin, and difficult to use in a frosting bag... However, it could be because I added 10 liquid food coloring drops to get the lavender color I wanted. At any rate, this tasted and worked great after I added about 1 cup more confectioners sugar.

Peppermint Snowball Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
I crushed one of those large lollipops from amusement parks with a meat tenderizer instead of using peppermint candies. The recipe made 40 cookies (instead of 32 as listed) and turned out just like snowball cookies should. With my oven, I had to bake for 20mins. Overall, I think I prefer the snowball cookie version that uses nuts instead of candy. This recipe involves a lot of sugar already, even after I omitted the 2nd 1/4 cup of candies from the snowball covering mixture.

Korean Salad with Sesame Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2008
I thought this tasted familiar to Japanese restaurant salads I've had before. My husband is Korean, and he didn't recognize this dish. His response was "Korean's have salad?!" Fresh salad is uncommon, because Koreans usually have some pickled vegetables (I.e. Kim Chi or other pan chon) at every meal.

Cheesy Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2008
my husband thought it was fine, but maybe I just don't like acorn squash. for some reason the squash had curved bone-like things at the bottom??? this was my first acorn sqaush recipe. kinda wish I just went with a soup instead.

Pumpkin Wheat Honey Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2008
This was a hit with me and my husband. Couldn't even tell there was wheat in them. I substituted canned pumpkin puree with homemade pumpkin puree and raisins with chocolate chips.

Deep Dish Potato and Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
Brought this to a potluck and people thought it was fine. I made it without crust as one reviewer suggested, but I definitely think it needs a crust. Otherwise, it doesn't look presentable. I had to substitute parsley for thyme.

BLT Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2008
This tasted pretty good and was easy to make. I substituted - 1/4cup butter and 1/4cup milk instead of half-and-half - water in roughly the same amount as grease (in lieu of bacon grease) - 14oz can of chicken broth instead of the chicken soup base and water the recipe calls for. The actual serving size of the recipe is smaller than 8 servings, more like 4 servings.

Oats and Pumpkin Pinwheels

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2008
It's a cookie made like a Jelly roll. I used homemade pumpkin puree in place of the can. I didn't bother freezing, but just cut the dough right away. An okay tasting cookie that requires a lot of work to get a swirl design in the middle... unique though.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: May 9, 2007
Turned out great tasting and looking. Dropped by rounded tablespoonfuls onto foil-covered cookie sheet and they came out perfect. Omitted the nuts and still tasted great. Very easy to make and clean up.

Avocado Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2006
Ready Time: 10min is wrong! Further down in recipe, it says "chill at least 4 hrs." The consistency was runny, so to salvage the pie I added cream cheese like another reviewer suggested (basically making it into a cheesecake). 14oz of sweet condensed milk is too sweet.

World's Best Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
I agree with the past reviewers. Too much filling for 1 pie, but not enough for 2. Also, the older folks found it too sweet, but the younger people thought it was fine. No need to add more sweetness with whipped cream topping. FYI, works with homemade pumpkin puree, just need to cook a little longer.
