Candied Fruit Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2015
I had some candied fruitcake mix on hand, as well as some candied ginger and slivered almonds, so I used those instead of what the recipe calls for. I actually used about 1/4 cup more fruit in total, too. I like it. I think the ginger is an excellent addition. I'm not too fond of how hard and crusty the outside of the bread got, but I think if I had covered it right after it came out of the oven, it would have softened a lot more. I'm not sure if I'll use this particular recipe again, but I like the concept quite a bit.

Amish Meatloaf

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2011
I'm a vegetarian, so I can't vouch for this recipe myself, but my hubby loved it. I followed the suggestions made, to cut the sugar and ketchup in half and to halve the sauce. He said it was very good.

Quick and Almost-Professional Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2011
Very good! I think I beat my frosting too long because it has lots of large bubbles in it, but a quick beating with a wooden spoon solves that problem.

Candy Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
I decided to heed the advice of the other commenters and simply left out the sugar all together. I must have been tired when I made this, because I accidentally used an 8 oz tub of cool whip and totally forgot to put in the vanilla or candy bits! But nevertheless, it has come out very tasty. It's not super soft, but it's also not going to bend your spoon when you scoop it out. And it's really rich and delicious! Next time I'm going to try adding peanut butter. I love this recipe mostly because it uses very simple ingredients that I think most of us have on hand!

Cranberry Oat Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2010
Very good! It smelled fantastic! It wasn't very sweet, but it still had a lot of great flavors. I might add more cinnamon next time.

Soft Giant Pretzels

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
OH GOD, these are so good! Not the bland, salty pretzels I'm used to, but the soft and sweet pretzels you get at good pretzel shops.

Oranged Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
This is very tasty, but I disagree with the author. You can TOO overcook this. I made this twice because the first time, the sauce really burned up and tasted blackened the whole way through. So the second time, I turned the heat way way down and watched it very closely. Within just one minute it started to burn. Thankfully I caught it fast enough to save it. I don't know what to do about the burning. Maybe I didn't add enough water, but it's hard to tell how much you need. You can't "cover" the cranberries because they float! Anyway, this was very good and I hope to perfect the method someday.

Marshmallow Fondant

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
This was so much better than the traditional fondant! It was very sweet, but isn't that what icing is supposed to be anyway? I added maple flavoring to it and it really perked it up and made it much more interesting! My advice would be to let the fondant cool before kneading it. It's VERY sticky otherwise!

Lemon Icing

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2009
Great frosting! Really tasty. I didn't have fresh lemon juice, so I used the bottled kind and added a little lemon extract to make up for it. I may have used less butter though.

Spinach and Tortellini Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2009
Fantastic! Perfect for summer. Much better for you than an ordinary pasta salad, and more filling. Works great with canned tomatoes too, if you don't have any fresh on hand.

Butter Bean Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2009
It was very good, but it was really crumbly! It didn't want to stick together when frying it at all. Maybe if I tried in a nonstick pan instead of my cast iron pan. Or I might try adding more binder, like more crackers or maybe even a little flour.

Spiced Butternut Squash Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
I followed the advice of one of the reviewers and used a cup of squash (because I had a bunch left over in the fridge!). I got a lot of batter, enough to fill the muffin cups about 3/4th full, but the muffins turned out really nice. I may have baked them 5 or 10 minutes longer, though, because they really collapsed when I got them out of the oven. Nevertheless, they were delicious and I love that they use little oil or sugar!

Crackle Thins

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
I really have no idea what people have against these crackers, and they are crackers. You can go into the store and buy bran crackers that have the exact same texture as these do, only these are probably better for you. They're simple but tasty. I did however have to add a little extra flour in order to make them kneadable. In a second batch, I added some seasonings (garlic powder and onion powder), and they were very tasty.

Tomato Cakes

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
As suggested, I used a can of italian flavored tomatoes, and these were so yummy! Very satisfying. Although I did have trouble keeping them from sticking in my cast iron skillet. Next time I'll use a nonstick pan.

Scalloped Potatoes and Onions

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
They were pretty good! I would add a little parmesan to the top of it next time, though. Also, they cooked in an hour instead of two, which was pleasing.

Maple Cookies

Reviewed: May 8, 2008
These cookies were the best. They're so full of subtle yet wonderful flavors. I used half grade A dark amber syrup and half grade A light amber, but only because I ran out of the dark amber. The darker the syrup you use, the more of that maple flavor it'll have. Also, I made a small batch the night before and realized it wasn't as maple-y as I would have liked, so when I made a larger batch, I replaced the vanilla with maple flavoring. Everyone loved them!

General Tsao's Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2007
I didn't eat this one myself because I'm a vegetarian, but my fiance and his friend told me that it's great! The only thing I would do is cut down the amount of cornstarch! We had to add a lot more water before it was done cooking!

Sloppy Joe Sandwiches

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2006
Very good! I'm a vegetarian, so I simply replaced the meat with brown rice and kidney beans. It's very good! Try adding some chili powder. It adds a lot!

Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2006
It's very easy to make, and very tasty! I love that it makes just enough for two people, but it's easy enough to double or triple if you want. I also like adding in a little bit of corn, too.
