Shredded Potato Quiche

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
I used about 4-5 cups frozen shredded potato mixed with 1/4 c canola oil, salt and pepper. Baked that in 425 oven for 20 min. For the filling I added bacon, diced onion, corn, and peas, and decreased the cheese to 1/2 cup of mozarella. Baked that in 375 oven for 25 min (at 20 min it wasn't done yet). I really liked how the potato browned on the bottom of the pie plate and the edges were crunchy. Definitely will make this again.

Potato Latkes I

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
I had a huge bag of frozen shredded potato and thought I'd try Latkes for the first time. I was not excited about the frying so I checked out some other recipes and came up with this. I mixed about 4 cups with dried onion flakes, salt, pepper, 1 tsp baking powder, 4 tbl flour, and 2 beaten eggs. I baked them (1/4 c scoop then flattened) in my convection oven at 400 deg, on a cookie sheet covered in foil and sprayed with cooking oil. 10-15 min/side. Very crunchy, like a hearty potato chip!

Cinnamon-Roasted Almonds

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
I used raw almonds and pecan halves, basically quadupled the recipe however ended up with a little extra egg white b/c the 4th one I accidentally cracked the yolk and to avoid any yolk in the mix I threw the rest of the egg in with the other yolks. So I thought I'd do one more egg just in case. Final ingredient list: 4.5 egg whites, 1 tbl water, 4 tsp vanilla, 15 cups nuts, 1 cup white granulated sugar, 1 cup brown sugar, 1 tsp salt, 4 tsp cinnamon, and 1/2 tsp almond extract. I beat the eggs first then mixed into that the sugar, etc, mixing in the nuts last. I used the convection setting in my oven and baked it at 225 for 1hr 10min, stirring every 10-15 min. It's very sticky the first couple stirs. I'm pleased it turned out well since I'm planning on giving a lot of it away, as well as snacking on a whole bunch myself.

Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
Definitely the cakey type of cobbler, which I enjoy. I don't understand the butter either - 4tbl in a 9" round seems excessive. I have made this once with 2tbl butter, 1/4 cup whole wheat flour + 1/2 all purpose white flour, and the 2 cups of peaches I sliced and froze a few months ago that hadn't quite defrosted (I was in a hurry) and had quite a bit of frozen juice around each piece. After 1 hr it still looked a little doughy in the middle so I changed my oven to convection, lowered to 325, and baked it for another 10 min. the edges were pretty brown and crunchy but not burned and the middle was cooked all the way. It isn't super sweet on it's own, which is fine for some people (ie, me), but my family liked it better with whipped cream.

Cranberry-Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
I love pumpkin recipes -cookies, breads, etc- and the fact that these have fresh cranberries makes them rise above the usual pumpkin fare. I had some frozen cranberries that I used and the recipe turned out great. I used a cookie scoop so the finished product wasn't perfectly smooth or uniform but that doesn't matter to me. I also don't like orange zest nor walnuts, so I skipped those ingredients. These cookies were very moist, chewy, and dense - characteristics I really enjoy about baked pumpkin goods.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
Delicious mix of spices. I baked 2 4-pound chickens using the convection setting. My little convection cooking book said to start at 450 degrees for 25 min, then decrease it to 300 degrees for the rest of the time (15 min for every pound). The meat was good, but not falling off of the bone, which is fine by me. Now I have 4 cups of diced cooked chicken for other recipes and some really good chicken broth.

Easy Cheese Ball II

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
I've never made this before but decided to add the bacon as others have suggested. I also only made one ball and added a little mayo and Worcestershire sauce. I put in the whole packet of Hidden Valley Ranch dressing. It only had 6 hrs before the party but it tasted great.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
I made this with pre-cut stew meat from the grocery store, two beef boullion cubes (with 1.5 cups water for the broth), mini-carrots, frozen chopped onion, and some leftover boiled red potatoes (I added them right at the end). I like this recipe b/c I like the saucey/soupy stuff that is GREAT to sop up with homemade rolls! Mmm!

Baked Honey Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
A little bit heavy on the mustard side for me, but I don't like spicy foods. I thought it was good and felt that the amount of sauce it created was sufficient for me to pour over the rice that I served with it.

Make-Ahead Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
I really like that this recipe is baked, not fried. I found that after adding the bread crumbs to the eggy mixture it soaked up all of the moisture so when I finally added the ground beef, I had what looked like bread cubes in the meatballs. Maybe I waited too long between steps? Also, I halved the recipe and only had about 40 meatballs. I even used a tablespoon measure to be certain I was doing it right. Despite the weird difficulties I had, the meatballs turned out great.

Traditional Swedish Pepparkakor

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
5 stars for flavor, but 1 star for difficulty. As other reviewers noted, it was really difficult to roll out since it was sandy in texture. I could roll it with great effort (after it was at room temp - no way right out of the refrigerator) and could only get 1 or 2 cookies cut out of it because the rest was so crumbly. I tried adding more corn syrup after re-reading the reviews which did help the dough stick together better, however, it was extremely hard to mix it in! My arms were exhausted and it was too much for my Kitchen Aid mixer!

Apple Squares

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
I added two whole Granny Smith apples diced with my food processor (2.5 - 3 cups in the end) and halved the sugar. I think there is too much topping and might skip it the next time I make it. I've made it twice now and the 2nd time I used applesauce instead of butter and half whole-wheat flour. I thought it was great! It is more like an apple snack cake, chewy and moist. Good for breakfast too.

Toasted Party Mix

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
I combined some of the other reviewer's notes and another recipe because I LOVE salty crunchy snacks. My favorite is the wheat Chex so I put in 4 cups, 3 cups corn Chex, 3 cups rice Chex, 1 cup of roasted cashews/almonds, and 1 cup of pretzels. 6 tbl of butter, 2 tbl water, .5 tsp garlic powder, .5 tsp onion powder, 3 tsp season salt, and 3 tbl W. sauce. I used the convection setting on my oven so baked it at 250 deg x 30 min, stirring once. I can't stop eating it even though it's still a bit too hot!

Martha's Clam Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
I used several "dashes" of W. sauce, omitted hot pepper sauce b/c I hate the flavor of it, several dashes of ground black pepper, and added several dashes of Lawry's season salt. I also used a 10 oz can of clams and chopped it up in my food processor. Terrific!

Mississippi Tea Cakes

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2008
I only just made them and I've eaten 4 of them already. They taste like a soft, chewy, cripsy on the edges vanilla cake. Wish I had some tea but I don't think I can wait that long. I used a cookie scoop which worked fine but it makes the cookie look bumpy. The last batch I smoothed out the scoops with my spatula and they look better.

Chocolate Zucchini Cake III

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2008
I used dark chocolate powder and omitted the cinnamon. It was very dense and more of a brownie/bread consistency. I use Satiny Chocolate Glaze over it. My family and coworkers thought it was very good.

No Bake Cookies III

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2008
All of my coworkers love it when I bring in No Bakes. When I brought this batch in they actually finished the cookies twice as quickly as the regular ones. I think they really liked it. I thought it wasn't very peanutty and too soft. I usually add an extra cup of oatmeal which gives it more bite/chew and even so this batch was soft.
