Elegant Southern Jam Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2004
This cake tasted good, but it did not present well. Maybe I did something wrong, but the top layer slid off the bottom before we ever got to eat it.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2003
My husband is a picky eater and wasn't thrilled that I was trying out a new meatloaf recipe on him, but he really liked it. I did use 2 pounds of meat, an extra egg, and a little less milk. I took a previous suggestion and put sauce on top and bottom. Good recipe - will make again.

Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2003
Good recipe - the only thing I did differently was omitted the raisins (didn't have any in the house at the time). My only complaint was that it stuck to the bottom of my tube pan, even though I had greased it.

Maple Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2003
Good stuff! Made it one evening and took it to work the next day. Warmed it in the microwave at work, uncovered, and the topping stayed crisp. Everyone loved it.

Onion Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2003
Good as an easy side dish. I really think it's much better if you add salt and garlic to it, also.

Wild Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2003
A nice side dish - makes a lot, though. I suggest adding spicy sausage for a little more flavor.

Grilled Pizza Wraps

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2003
My husband loved them! I also added mushrooms and italian sausage when I made them. Used mozzerella cheese with a little bit of cheddar instead of following recipe. Nice because you can let everyone pick the fillings they want and everyone is happy - not like ordering pizza and having to argue over the choice of toppings. Quick and easy!

Chocolate Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2003
This is a big favorite for everyone I know who has tried this bread. I made mini-loaves for our bake sale (recipe yields six small loaf pans instead of two regular-sized) and had to cut the baking time almost in half. I also use miniature chocolate chips for this recipe. I always leave the loaves in the pans to cool for about 10-15 minutes after removing them from the oven before take them out and placing on cooling racks for another 30 minutes. Great recipe!!!!!

Apple Walnut Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2003
Good recipe. I used only all-purpose flour, as I didn't have wheat flour, and it turned out fine. Baked mini-loaves instead of two regular sized. If you do that, you'll need to cut baking time from 70 minutes to about 40 minutes or so. Keep checking frequently once you've hit 35 minutes to make sure the sides don't burn.

Pan Fried Catfish Filets

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2003
This recipe was good. As always when frying, be sure the oil is hot enough before adding your fish. Otherwise, you'll end up with a not-so-tasty disaster (which I did the on my first attempt at this recipe).

Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2003
I felt the recipe as written was just OK. After making some changes, we liked it much better. Added sauted onions, garlic powder, & parsley flakes. I also sprinkled some beef boullion crystals into soup mixture to give it more of a beefy flavor. Had to substitute cr. of chicken for the celery, but tasted just as good. Added some cubed potatoes to the mixture before mashing the rest, which we liked. But I definitely recommend using instant potatoes instead - cuts the prep time in more than half. If you really like the cubes added to the beef mixture, you can always throw in some frozen hash browns - same result.

Barbecued Beef

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2003
This went over well, but some who tried it felt it needed more of a sauce to it (they thought it was too dry), so they added some BBQ sauce to theirs. Perhaps I used too much beef.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2003
We made they cookies with some slight alterations. We wrapped the cookie dough all the way around the p.b. cup before cooking. This made for a less messy cookie, as there was no chocolate to ooze all over, but it made less cookies this way and took a bit longer to prepare.

Chocolate Chip Cookies for Special Diets

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2002
From reading other reviews, I guess that these cookies were supposed to end up spongy and soft. I thought maybe I hadn't cooked them enough. The taste is very good - just don't expect them to be similar to regular chocolate chip cookies. (They also didn't come off the baking sheet very easily without falling apart a bit on the bottom. I will try greasing the sheet next time.)

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies VIII

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2002
Tested one while I was baking them and discovered that they are not sweet at all, so I made some icing as suggested to brush on top of them. That helped quite a bit in terms of favor. I've never made "special diet" treats before, so I'm not sure if there might be a better recipe out there.

Apple Maple Crumble Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2002
Make this recipe one evening to take to work the next day. I doubled it and put it in a 9x13 pan. The only change I made to the recipe is the addition of a dash of both cinnamon and nutmeg to the topping (just enough to taste a hint of each). Warmed it in the microwave (uncovered) when I got it to work, and the topping was amazingly still crunchy and crisp like it had come right out of the oven. Everyone loved it - it all went really quickly. Great recipe in the autumn when you have lots of apples to use up!

Baked Spaghetti Corn

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2002
I used linguine noodles because I didn't have spaghetti at the time. My husband looked at the dish and announced that he was going to hate it. Although he'd rather die that admit when he's wrong, he still went back for seconds. As he as a very picky eater, guess this means the recipe's a keeper. As recommended by other reviewers, I used less margarine and covered mine, cooking it for 50 minutes. In addition, I took it out of the oven twice while it was cooking to stir -- which I highly recommend -- that kept from having sections of undercooked, crunchy noodles.

Slow Cooker Scalloped Potatoes with Ham

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2002
Not sure what I did wrong with this recipe, but I had to leave it in the slow cooker for an extra 45 minutes in order to fully cook the potatoes. This recipe was OK, but not tops on our family's list.

Bob's Stuffed Banana Peppers

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2002
These peppers were pretty good. We had to all some additional seasonings to the recipe to give a little boost.

This was a great recipe - we spiced it up a bit, but it was easy and well received.
