Creamy Dill Cucumber Toasties

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2005
Wow, I took this to work for a holiday activity and everyone was asking for the recipe. The one thing I would differently is make sure the cream cheese is decently soft before I begin. I used Trader Joes Mini Toasts. They get soggy after a while but then they taste like mini cucumber sandwiches. So as an update to this, I've found that if I'm pressed for time and/or bringing it to a potluck that I know they will be sitting out for a while, I don't bother with the cucumber part. I make the spread and leave a box of crackers next to it and treat it as a spread instead. It also tastes great on bagels.

Grandma's Gingersnaps

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2004
Wow, I just made these today (actually, I haven't finished making them since my oven died ). I couldn't resist eating some almost straight out of the oven. They are soft, puffy, and really yummy. I used one stick of margerine and 1/4c butter since that's what I had available. Next time I bake these, I think I might add a little more ginger (or try adding alspice like some other people suggested). I think I only have enough dough to make 2 dozen rather than 3 dozen.

The Best Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2004
Very good. This was the second time I made it and I made a few changes. I cut the brown sugar down to 3/4 cup. Added a can of sliced mushroom and a carrot to the sauce. And used 1/4c dried chopped onion instead of a whole onion. Cooked the meatballs in the oven for 20 minutes and then brownded them. Made the sauce and then cooked the meatballs and the sauce in the oven for another 20 min.

No Sugar Apple Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2003
The pie was easy to make and it wasn't that bad but to me, the pie was really really sour. I'll assume it was the green apples and lack of sugar. I'll try this again but I think I'll use some green apples and some other type of apples. (I like it because my dad always says to add less sugar so now I can say I don't add any other sugar)

Tantalizingly Tangy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2003
hm.... not bad. I think i made the mistake of not packing the meat close enough together though so I had issues trying to get a whole slice vs bits and pieces of slices. It was a really watery though. That might be because I used crushed pineapples and kept the juices. I think I would double to topping next time. It's really good. Oh yeah, I also added onions to the meatloaf.

Cinnamon Bread I

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2003
Wow, this is probably the first time I've ever tried to make bread without a bread machine and it turned out really good. I ate it while it was still hot and I love the way that it just sort of steamed as I sliced it. I followed the other reviewers suggestions and also doubled the amount of topping and added half in the middle of the loaf. Also had to cook it slightly longer than the recipe calls for.
