Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
These muffins were dee-lish! I try to stick to the recipe given so I can give it an honest rating but, I was running low on all-purpose flour and so I used 1 cup whole-grain flour and 1/2 cup all-purpose. They turned out fantastic and moist! I'm quite sure the recipe as written would have turned out great but, personally, I'm so glad I substituted whole-grain b/c the grains made it taste like I added nuts to the recipe (just like my banana bread!). The only thing I'd suggest is to keep a close eye on them b/c it can be very easy to burn the cinn/sugar topping. Also, I got 15 muffins out of the batch instead of 12... nice surprise as they went very fast!! Thanks for the recipe!

Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
Very yummy! I made a couple changes based on peoples reviews and what I had on hand. The cabbage was very pliable just by boiling the entire head of cabbage in a big pot of salted water for 6-8 min., then pouring the boiling water out and letting the cabbage sit in cold water for 1-2 min (drain and put aside until ready to use). I also added garlic, 1 Tbs worchestershire sauce, 1 Tbs lemon juice, & 1 Tbs brown sugar to the meat mixture. As other reviewers, I too used my preferred can of pasta sauce (w/ mushrooms) and 1/2 cup of tomato sauce. My rolled cabbage stayed nice and secure just by placing them seam side down. I also baked mine in a 350 degree oven for 1 hr. basting them w/ the sauce often. Turned out moist and yummy. They make awesome left-overs too!

Sausage Crescent Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
My family fell in love with "sausage rolls" over our time living in Scotland. We miss them so much, but these certainly brought us back... These are not quite as flaky as the ones we had before and they also include cheese (which the original ones didn't) but we definitely embraced the changes! These were quick and easy to make! I was sure the dough would pop open and the cheese and sausage would come oozing out, but it didn't! You just need to make sure to pinch all the holes and lines (where the crescents were meant to be cut) are sealed tightly. I accidently picked up a box of "neufchatel cheese" instead of regular cream cheese which made it a bit tougher to get the creamy consistency it called for. But, once it was all wrapped up in the crescent rolls, it was all so yummy! I also used sweet italian sausage instead of spicy pork sausage (b/c that's what I had on hand) and added red pepper flakes to one of the logs for my husband and I. This is definitely something I'll make again and will have fun trying different cheeses and meats and (as others suggested) some other sizes and shapes (i.e. bite size squares, triangles, mini muffin cups). This is a good one... thanks for sharing!
