Banana Bread IV

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2001
I have been looking and looking for a good banana bread recipe. So many are too dry, or too sweet, or too something else. This one is perfect. My husband says it's the best he's ever eaten ... and he is picky!

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2002
I also used cream of chicken soup instead of cream of mushroom. I used shredded thigh meat for the chicken. In addition, I added more cheese (at my husband's request) and eliminated--okay, FORGOT-- the milk. And they were GREAT!! Yum!

Scrumptious Seafood Linguine

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2002
I used more crab than the recipe called for, which was a little overwhelming--but that was my fault. Otherwise, YUM! It was also easier than I thought it would be.

Calzone

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2002
This recipe was great. My husband and I both agreed this was the best homemade calzone crust we've eaten! This one definitely goes into my recipe box. NOTE: I have now made this with both all-purpose flour by itself and all-purpose flour with gluten added (to simulate bread flour). I prefer it with just all-purpose flour. It makes for a pizza-ier crust.

Pasta/Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2002
Yum! The only thing I might change next time is adding just a teensy bit less sugar. (My husband doesn't care for sweet sauces.) However, if you try this and think it's too sweet, a teaspoon or so of vinegar will help. Just for myself, I thought it was great. MUCH better than most jarred sauces. NOTE: I do recommend this for pizzas, but not as a pasta sauce.

Fried Onion Rings

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2002
These were easy and yummy! I sliced them really thin. Next time I will slice them a little thicker just because of the amount of time it took to fry 2 million skinny onion rings. I also wish I had used peanut oil, since it fries better than regular vegetable oil. Still, they definitely get two thumbs up.

Mayonnaise Biscuits

Reviewed: May 12, 2002
Yum! These biscuits come out very light and fluffy with a rich (but not too rich) taste and mouthfeel. If you don't have self-rising flour (like me), use 2 cups less 4 tsp. sifted flour, 3 tsp. baking powder, and 1 tsp. salt.

Black Russian Cake I

Reviewed: May 12, 2002
This cake was very tasty and easy. I also used a pastry brush to "baste" on the glaze slowly. Next time, I think I will start with a chocolate cake mix, but that's just because I'm a total chocolate fiend.

Zucchini Bread IV

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2002
Yum! This bread is moist and flavorful. Next time I will stir in some chocolate chips because--well, basically because I just love chocolate. But it's great as is.

Lemon Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2002
This cake was moist and lemony, just what I was looking for. I did add a glaze, however.

Factory Workers Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2002
This chicken was okay (definitely easy), but not great. I might cook it again.

Baked Mushroom Thighs

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2002
This recipe was edible, but not impressive. The strong-tasting thigh meat overpowered the bland coating (even though I tried to add a little more zip to it). It might be good with a breast.

Cream Puff Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2002
Mmm, mmm. Like a lot of other reviewers, I added a layer of chocolate at the bottom (the icing from the Eclairs II recipe--I do NOT recommend canned frosting). Next time, I may just melt some chocolate chips with a little butter for the bottom layer. Anyway, I took this to work (in addition to making a smaller pan for home), and it was a total hit! Oh, I also put chocolate curls on top rather than chocolate syrup. This made a VERY pretty--and tasty--dessert.

Eclairs II

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2002
I did not actually make this recipe, but I used the chocolate icing from it in something else. If you're looking for a great chocolate icing, you can't do better.

Jiffy Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2002
Both my husband and I thought these were good taken on their own merits, but they're not the yeast kind. I'll keep the recipe for those times when we want something quick, though.

Italian Style Meatloaf I

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2002
This was pretty yummy; the only caveat is that mine took a bit longer to get done ... I think because I used very lean ground beef, which made a dense loaf. Sure was tasty, though.

Cauliflower Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2002
Yum! This was really tasty. We've tried with frozen AND fresh cauliflower; it works both ways. The only reason it didn't get five stars: too high a fat and calorie content to eat this regularly. But it sure is tasty. Also, we accidentally reversed the amounts of red pepper flakes and salt, putting in a teaspoon of salt and a pinch of red pepper flakes, and we really liked it that way!

No Bake Cookies I

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2002
Yum! Just like when I was a kid. I did add just a pinch of salt to bring out the flavors a bit more.

Classic Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2002
Well, I'd rather have chocolate chip cookies for breakfast, but for a bran muffin, this one's very tasty.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2002
We thought these were great. It's not the only chocolate chip cookie recipe I'll use, but when you want a "big, fat, chewy cookie," this is awesome. For the cookies to stay chewy, they need to be left on the cookie sheet until cool. (Except, of course, for the few you just can't resist eating right out of the oven.) Also, the butter MUST be melted, and the flour should be all-purpose UNsifted. 10/17/04: I notice that some people have mentioned that this is a cakey cookie. I did not find that at all, and I HATE cakey cookies. My suggestions to avoid cakiness are: use real butter, be sure to melt the butter, don't overbeat your eggs, and do NOT skip the extra egg yolk.
