Fabulously Sweet Pear Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2012
I love this basic recipe! I sliced and chopped the pears and soaked in the sugar about 15 minutes and left whole. I used about 2/3 of the sugar called for. I used self-rising four and omitted the salt and reduced the baking soda to 1 tsp. I added 1/2 c. Of apple juice and baked in a sugared Bundt pan for about 40-45 minutes. Gorgeous and delicious!

Glazed Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2011
Great recipe idea! I used homemade peach jam and twice the horseradish and 1/2 c. Water, poured over tenderloin in pan, used Rosemary as directed, covered and baked at 350 for 1 hour. Poured juice over sliced tenderloin to serve. Thank you for submitting- perfect flavors!

Oma's Cottage Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2014
I followed the recipe with a few changes- no cinnamon in the crust, half the lemon juice, and added about 1/4 c. Cocoa powder as another reviewer did and half a block of no fat cream cheese I had leftover. If you omit all the lemon juice you lose the "cheesecakey" flavor and get a more puddingy result. The lemon gives it that tang and helps firm the cheesecake. My blender couldn't handle it so I used a bowl and an immersion hand blender. easy! It took about an hour and then I turned the oven off and left it cracked for about 15 minutes. It was firm, rich, and delicious- even my husband was amazed that cottage cheese could be so yummy! Thanks for sharing Oma's recipe!

Banana Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
Don't give up on this recipe because of the cooking time- a few tips: Sift your flour into the measuring cup, or fluff with a fork. Too much and it will be too dense and not cook through. Raise the temp to 365 for the after the first half hour for about 15 minutes, then back to 350 for the last 15 minutes- mine had a lovely crown. I use self-rising flour in bread recipes- omit the leavening and salt. It makes a much less gummy batter. As far as flavor, I didn't have pumpkin pie spice, so I used 1tsp. each clove and nutmeg along with the cinnamon. I also added 1tsp. orange extract- it brings out the banana. It makes a very nice loaf, and is a great, not overly sweet basic recipe.

Broccoli With Lemon Almond Butter

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2011
The great thing about these recipes is that folks put them out there for critique and we get to tweak. I agree with reviewers. Half the lemon juice (I like the zest). Brown the almonds in 1 tsp. sugar in a saucepan then add the butter (you can reduce that, too, no more than half) and zest and toss with the cooked broccoli. Splash the lemon juice in at the end, bring quickly to temp., stirring, and serve. Thank you for the recipe- pretty picture.
