Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2006
Fail-proof. I followed the directions and everything turned out perfectly. ADVICE: freeze (or put in fridge) unwrapped PB cups - it is easier to press the frozen candy into the hot cookie without falling to pieces. SUPERB!

Mongolian Beef I

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2006
Fabulous! I added more red pepper, only because we like spicey - I also added honey to even out the saltiness of the soy sauce. Ginger, garlic and sesame oil compliment well, too.

Busy Day Chicken Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2007
Great recipe. I appreciate that the ingredients are common - making it quick to put together. For better flavor I used CREAM OF CHICKEN & HERBS soup and one can of BROCCOLI CHEESE. The plain cream of chicken or mushroom does not have much flavor at all. I also used more water as others suggested so that the rice was cooked thoroughly. I used a WILD RICE mix (white, brown and wild rice) instead of just white rice, and topped with crushed whole wheat crackers. GREAT! Will definitely make many more time.

Strawberry Butter

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
AMAZING! My variations: 3 tablespoons powdered sugar, 3 tablespoons raspberry jam. Also used strawberry jam (or preserves) and apricot (YUM!). Everyone who has tried it raves about it. My favorite way to use this is on fresh baked bread or rolls.

Herbed Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2007
I have a fabulous rice cooker (everyone should invest in one) so when I saw this recipe I was too excited to make it! Yes, of course I made only a couple of changes, and that is that I didn't have Worcestershire sauce, and I used vegetable broth. Added carrot shreds, used celery seed instead of celery, omitted the butter. Perfect rice! Extremely tasty, makes the best side dish for fish and chicken. I definitely will do this again in the rice cooker. Only takes 20 minutes! Thanks!

Brazilian Passion Fruit Mousse (Maracuja)

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2006
This recipe is wonderful! I used a can of frozen passion fruit juice instead of fresh and it was still fabulous. This recipe is a keeper. UPDATED VARIATION: I have tried this with limeade concentrate and it is great! I pour it into two graham cracker pie shells and let it sit for three hours to overnight before serving. It makes a light, tart summer treat.

Cherry Snowballs

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
Tips for these cookies that I found helpful: 1. SOFT BUTTER - if not your dough will spread. 2. DOUBLE THE POWDERED SUGAR in the dough - it will be just enough without going overboard. 3. DRY THE CHERRIES with a paper towel so that juice isn't dripping everywhere. 4. POWDER YOUR FINGERS w/ powdered sugar as you roll the cherries into the dough - it will make it much, much easier. 5. ADD NUTS, finely chopped, for more flavor in the dough - I used pecans and it was great! These cookies are gorgeous and were a big hit at a Christmas Cookie exchange that I participated in recently.

Amish Friendship Bread Starter

Reviewed: May 30, 2007
Great starter! I just made some and took it out of the oven. Yum! I used a recipe that a friend gave me that uses vanilla pudding. I did a big OOPS and used a metal whisk, but as soon as I realized what I was doing I removed the metal whisk and used a bamboo spoon. The bread still turned out fantastic! Also, I was away for two days over the weekend and just left the starter at room temp during days 6 & 7 and then picked up where I left off when I got back from vacation. No problems seemed to arise from being gone.

No-Fuss Pumpkin Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007
Oh geez, you just can't go wrong with this recipe. The only thing I added was pumpkin spice and it turned out fantastic! 10/2009 UPDATE: If you add about 1/2 cup more pumpkin the cake turns out really, really moist. Spice cake works fabulously - just leave out the spice.

Parmesan Herb Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2008
Yum! Great recipe - I substituted 1/2 the butter with olive oil and added a little bit of Italian bread crumbs with the Parmesan cheese. I didn't have whole chicken breasts on hand, so I used chicken tenders which taste the same! This recipe was easy and fast and I will use again. Thanks!

Antipasto Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2007
Amazing recipe! Suggestions: use light olive oil instead of veg oil. I threw in sun dried tomatoes (in place of fresh), artichokes and pine nuts. It turned out great!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2008
Great tasting recipe. I certainly would not go back to boxed brownies. To avoid getting dry brownies try under-baking a bit. FOR MOIST, CHEWY BROWNIES IN A 9X13: double everything except for the eggs (only use 2 or 3). Omit the baking soda all together. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes. I used 3/4 c. cocoa (when doubling the recipe), for a richer chocolate taste, but not necessary. The key to making fudgey brownie that is not dry or cake-like is to not over bake the brownie and definitely omit the baking powder. Great recipe! Thanks. UPDATE: don't use a mixer! Beat everything by hand or you will overbeat the mixture and get a more cakey result. These brownies are not suppose to taste like a box mix - but are wonderful and better than the box!

Tortilla Snack Strips

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2010
I used corn tortillas with this recipe and they were great! I substituted the butter with olive oil and still got a wonderful taste.

Cherry Crisp

Reviewed: May 21, 2009
This recipe is a very good basic recipe for Cherry crisp. To make it FIVE STARS for me I used two cans of cherries in a 9 x 13 baking dish, doubled the topping and added shredded coconut for more flavor.

Pie Crust V

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2008
CHANGES: added 1 tsp vanilla and used 1/4 cup sugar. I mixed all the ingredients IN the pie dish and pressed it into the dish rather than rolling it out. This way was faster and easier to to. Good recipe - will use many, many times.

Apple Cole Slaw

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
PERFECTION! The flavor is to die for. I didn't have the peppers or onions but wow, the best I have ever had. I really like the apples - they added so much. And it's best to let it sit and chill for at least an hour before serving. Yummers!! My husband said it was the best he has ever had. This recipe is a KEEPER!! I

Finnish Pulla

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2011
I don't have anything to compare this to, and I have never had it before but I was very pleased with the results. I doubled the cardamon because it is such a wonderful spice and it still was very subtle in the bread. As another suggested, I topped with a glaze flavored with almond extract and then topped with slivered almonds.

Buttery Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
MADE BY HAND because my KichenAid broke. These were easy, easy, easy and so delicious! I only used about 3 3/4 c flour and used 1 TBSP of yeast. Great rolls! This is my new favorite that I will use from now on.

Almost Eggless Egg Salad

Reviewed: May 24, 2010
FOR EGGLESS SALAD use Veganaise! You won't know the difference. I don't use this particular recipe but my own because I like a bit of curry in mine. The concept is great and the taste is best when you let sit overnight so the tofu can absorb all the flavor.

Cinnamon Honey Butter

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
CAUTION: very sweet! I only added 1/4 c. honey & 1/4 c. powdered sugar and it came out perfectly light and fluffy without being overly sweet.
