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.

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!!!!!

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.

Original Nestle® Toll House® Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2002
Of course they're great - but also equally as good without the nuts. Try substituting a portion of the chocolate chips with butterscotch chips. Yummy!

Chocolate Toffee Crunch Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2002
I just LOVE this recipe!!! I make these anytime I have to take a dessert someplace. I've never met a single person who didn't like these toffee bars. It's worth the pain of stirring the toffee forever when you hear all of the rave reviews. BIG HINT: I use sliced almonds on top instead of walnuts - it makes the cookies look beautiful! Many people thought I had bought them from a bakery - they looked professionally done with the almonds on top.

Chocolate Cherry Drops

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2002
I didn't use the exact recipe. Because I'm allergic to walnuts, I added almonds instead (sliced almonds broken into tinier pieces) and also substituted a tiny bit of the vanilla extract for almond extract, which worked out nicely. Would make these again.

Pepperoni Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2002
This always goes over well at my parties - there's never any left over. I usually use Pillsbury French Loaf instead of the frozen bread dough (it takes less time to cook), and I have substituted turkey pepperoni for the regular. I actually like the turkey pepperoni better, because it make the pepperoni bread less greasy. My most finicky eaters never knew the difference.

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2002
This was a great recipe - we spiced it up a bit, but it was easy and well received.

Chicken and Broccoli Braid

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2002
This recipe was a huge hit with company! Since I'm not a dill weed fan, I was going to bypass using it. Instead, I only added 1 tsp., and I'm glad I did. It wouldn't have tasted as good without the dill. Easy recipe to make substitutions to the filling (ham and cheese, vegetarian, etc).

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.)

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.

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).

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.
