Blueberry Squares

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2014
Rated this recipe high due to the positive health factor, yet still a dessert! Taste needs increased a bit. The only change I did to this recipe was add some cinnamon. Next time, will add some lemon zest and more cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. But overall, I enjoyed it.

Homemade Marshmallows I

Reviewed: May 10, 2014
My first attempt was with the recipe in half. Don't do that! The gelatin set up too much and then caused lumps. I also did not get the sugar mixture hot enough, second mistake. So, my second attempt, I made full recipe and used a new candy thermometer. Followed directions much more closely, with vanilla added. Turned out great! I put mine in a 8x8 pan and have "jumbo" (tall) mallows. I'm anxious to keep playing with this recipe; different flavors, add color, use cookie cutters, etc!

Grandma's Peach French Toast

Reviewed: May 4, 2013
This is a good recipe to make your own. I tried it mostly as written, and like the idea of the brown sugar/butter combo for the bottom. Next time, though, I think I will mix the peaches with the bread (which I cubed), along with more fruit (I added blueberries too). (and yes, add milk!) Also, I like more spice, so I will definitely use more cinnamon along with other spices for more pizzazz. I had nice compliments and will make it again and continue to play with the options.

Sugar Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
I doubled the recipe and tweaked it the first time I made it by using double the cinnamon and pinches of cloves and allspice. That was not enough spice for me! Even though I received nice compliments on the nuts, I felt I only tasted nuts and no spice. So, for the second batch I made, I increased the spice! I didn't officially measure anything, but approximately 3+ tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp cloves, 1 tsp allspice, and 1 tsp ginger. Even with the increases of the spices, I think the outcome is still 'light' spice. In this second batch, I did a double of the pecans, and then another batch of almonds. The almonds were fine, but I like how the nooks/crannies of the pecans hold the sugar/spice better! Otherwise, I had no problems making them; I baked them on parchment paper and that made for easy clean up! Looking forward to giving these away as Christmas treats!

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
Just made this for dinner tonight and really enjoyed the flavors! I cooked a large amount of chicken tenders, so adjusted upward the amount of the spice mixture, but was able to cook it without adding more oil/butter. Cooked the tenders in batches, and then when they were all cooked, I put them back in the pan, added some chopped fresh garlic, instead of the garlic powder, and some chicken broth, and the lime juice. I also sprinkled in lime zest. Very tasty! Definitely recommend this recipe!

Oatmeal Date Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2010
This recipe is a nice 'traditional' oatmeal cookie; but it does need to bake longer than 8 minutes. In my oven, they needed a minimum of 10 minutes. Also, I did not use the dates; instead, I used dried cherries. Next time I will try the dates. I think the recipe also needs some cinnamon or some other spice to jazz it up some. All in all though a good recipe. Mine have maintained softness days later in a plastic container.

Refrigerator Pickles

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2010
Great recipe! I've had many great compliments from the folks I've shared the pickles. My revision was to use red bell pepper, as I liked the color contrast. I also used 1 and half cups sugar instead of the two cups. A recent change I tried was to add hot banana pepper. I have several growing in the garden. I sliced the pepper into rings and then put about 3 rings in each container before adding the pickles. Just a few pepper rings in each container added a great kick to the pickles! Very easy recipe overall and great way to use up the cucumbers! Update: I had too many zucchini, so made this recipe with the zucchini. Turned out well too! The zuccs did not break down as much as the cucs did; but I also did not let them sit in the salt for the prescribed time before adding the rest of the ingredients. Regardless, still good tasting "pickles" and another way to use the zuccs!

Mediterranean Chop Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2010
My family and I enjoyed this salad quite a bit for Easter....However, the recipe did not specify a length of time for marinating the veggies; I suggest 30-60 minutes at the most. We traveled and the dressing was on the veggies too long (in my opinion) for about 3 hours; although everything still tasted great. Next time I also plan to use feta cheese instead of the Parm. The salad is quite colorful and festive for a gathering!

Minty Lime Freeze

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2010
I really wanted to like this recipe....but it was just 'ok'. I used 1/2-3/4 the amount of Jello mix and increased the zest by a 1/3. The taste/flavor was ok, so I don't think omitting some of the Jello was an issue. For me, it was more of a texture issue. I was expecting EITHER a cheesecake texture OR a much fluffier/lighter texture. And this one to me is a mix between the two, and a little too 'cream-cheesey' (even though I like cream cheese). If I make it again, I'll try to tweak it somehow......

Spring Lime Tea Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2010
Made these tonight, very easy to do, and super tasty WITH the glaze/icing. I made the icing with powdered sugar and it was great. If you make these for a group, plan to double or triple the recipe, as a single recipe doesn't make a lot. Definitely will make again!

Squash Casserole II

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2010
I was in a hurry and this recipe sounded like one I had used before, so I followed this one. I was disappointed; it was too 'eggy'. I did try the few comments about putting cheese in rather than on top, but I still didn't like it. I then determined that the previous recipe I had used was a Paula Deen recipe, which had no eggs, and was quite tasty.

Slider-Style Mini Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
I recently made these and really enjoyed them, especially since I do not like, and will not eat, the White Castles! I appreciate the other folks' comments. I thought the flavor was a bit bland, so I look forward to tweaking the recipe to my tastes; maybe add green chilies or pepper jack cheese. I also thought the Hawaiian bread was too sweeet, but will try the spicier flavors in the meat to balance that sweetness. Yes, make sure the foil is sealed well to keep buns soft. It was very easy to make. I also made it ahead of time and then put it together and baked it just before the party.

Cherry Snowballs

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
I made these for Christmas; they were great! I did not roll in coconut, but drizzled icing over them after they cooled on the rack, with a lined cookie sheet underneath; easy clean up! With previous comments about being bland, I used amaretto liquor to flavor the icing; very tasty! Also I suggest using smallest amount of dough needed to cover the cherry, as I struggled keeping the amounts even between dough and cherries. And this corresponds to other comments about one bite with a cherry and one bite of dough! I agree, these cookies don't have a lot of flavor unless you tweak the icing or add more to the dough, but given all the other flavors at Christmastime, I liked the simple taste.

Orange Cranberry Drops

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
Very tasty and easy to make. I doubled the recipe, but kept the cranberries to single amount and that was plenty for me. I also iced them with powdered sugar, creamed with a bit of butter, thinned with orange juice to frosting consistency -- very tasty!
