Pumpkin Cheese Bread I

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2004
Good, but not spectacular. I was expecting a difference in taste or texture from the cream cheese, but it was just plain pumpkin bread.

Sea Bass with Honeyed Apples

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2004
My husband and I enjoyed this recipe (I used catfish), but my kids didn't like it at all. I would make it again but would tweak the recipe slightly. First, I would saute onions with the apples for the topping. Second, I would substitute something else for the bread crumbs -- maybe crushed buttery crackers -- because I didn't care for the bread crumb flavor. (If using bread crumbs; two cups is excessive; 1 cup would be adequate). Oh, and make sure somebody else has clean up duty because this recipe uses a lot of dishes!

Italian Style Flounder

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2004
My husband and I enjoyed this dish although the kids wouldn't eat it. Since some reviewers felt the recipe was bland, I halved the fish but kept the same amount of sauce and felt it was quite tasty. I also simplified the sauce as follows: Sprinkle fillets with salt, pepper and basil to taste. Sqeeze 1/2 fresh lemon over fish. Top with can of diced tomatoes with garlic and olive oil (drained). Bake as directed.

Candied Carrots

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2004
I think I would cut back on the butter a bit -- the sauce was more liquid than I expected -- but my family really enjoyed carrots cooked this way.

Old-World Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2004
Very tasty -- reminds me of cabbage rolls, which I love to eat but hate to make. Next time, I'll try adding rice and cooked ground beef and sprinkling with cheddar to further mimic the cabbage rolls. Oh, and the hot pepper sauce really does wonderful things for the flavor.

Potato Spinach Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2004
Very tasty and attractive dish! I used fresh chives in place of green onions, but the flavor was too mild. Actually, I think garlic would be a far better flavoring for this dish.

Lemon Pound Cake II

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2004
I was trying to duplicate an incredibly moist lemon cake I had gotten at a bake sale, but this one was pretty mediocre - not much different than making the lemon cake mix as directed.

Aunty Pasto's Seafood Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2004
I should have read all of the reviews first because this recipe was definitely too runny. Next time I will saute the mushrooms first and not use frozen shrimp. The flavor was very rich, so I would probably consider this more of a special occasion or "company" dish.

Key Lime Pie I

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2004
My local grocer does not carry key lime juice, so I used a mixture of lemon and lime (probably 1/4 to 3/4 ratio), and the flavor was quite good. I loved the mousse-like texture! I used my own pastry crust rather than a graham-cracker crust. I made it for a party, but very few people even tasted it. The next day I served it to my family, and they were unenthusiastic. I loved it and had really hoped for rave reviews!

Cinnamon Coffee Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2004
I hate to be the dissenting opinion, but I just did not have much success with this frosting. My first batch was so runny that it went in the trash. I used no more that 1 or 2 tablespoons of milk in my second batch, but the frosting still slid down my cake in big globs. I had to refrigerate it and then try spreading it again. My guests were very polite about the appearance of the cake, but we all agreed that the frosting was sweet enough to make one's teeth fall out. The cinnamon coffee flavor was interesting with the Black Magic Cake, as other reviewers have noted, but I would not make this frosting again.

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2004
Very moist chocolate cake. Can't say I noticed the coffee flavor, but perhaps I didn't make it strong enough.

German Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2004
Incredibly moist cake! I used three large apples, which was probably more than 4 cups, but the cake was wonderful, especially for breakfast. (Shame on me!) Although I dusted the top with powdered sugar, I think it would have been delicious without any additions.

Grace's Honey Cakes

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2004
My kids are big Wiggles fans and wanted to make "Crunchy Munchy Honeycakes," so we gave this recipe a try. Of course, they were more like "chewy gooey honeycakes." I just didn't enjoy the texture, which I felt was undercooked. The flavor was just the right mix of honey and spices, but far too sweet. Perhaps less granulated sugar and more cooking time? I don't know if we'll try this recipe again, especially since it makes so much (tight fit in the mixing bowl!) and is difficult to halve.

Ketchup

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2004
My mom once made a wonderful homemade ketchup when I was a kid, so I guess I was trying to find a similar recipe. Unfortunately, this wasn't it. Although a tasty departure from bottled ketchup, the anise flavor is a bit strong for my family's taste.

Slow Cooker Creamed Corn

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2004
Incredibly easy! I cut the kernels from fresh (cooked) corn-on-the-cob leftover from a BBQ. It was probably about 6 ears, and that amount seemed just right. I don't know that I'd call the recipe "creamed corn" since it really isn't what you'd expect, but the kids liked the cheesy flavor.

Tater Tot Bake

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2004
This recipe was not a big hit with my family. I think we would have preferred it if the ground beef was in a tomato base, like with stuffed peppers or cabbage.

Lavender Tea Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2004
I wasn't sure which part of the lavender plant to use in this recipe. The first time I made it, I used the blossoms, which didn't chop very well. The second time, I used the leaves, and the bread turned out much better. In fact, it won second prize at our local fair. The bread was definitely different and not something I'd want all the time, but it would make a good bread for a tea or shower and definitely improves with strawberry preserves. It's also firm enough to toast and smells delicious when prepared that way.

Summer Squash Casserole with Nuts

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2004
The flavor of this casserole is good, but I used yellow squash, and the end result was a big beige blob. I would recommend using zucchini (or a combo of green and yellow squash) and red bell pepper instead of green. I would also increase the amount of bell pepper. Lastly, I would recommend skipping the bread crumbs all together and instead sprinkling the casserole with orange cheddar during the last 5 minutes or so of baking.

Honey Bun Cake I

Reviewed: May 22, 2004
This cake smelled great when baking, and my son, who has a sweet tooth, loved it. The rest of the family would have preferred a little more cake with their sugar. After all, you're adding 3 extra cups of sugar to an already-sweet cake mix.

Squash Casserole II

Reviewed: May 19, 2004
The adults liked this recipe, but it didn't win over the kids. The casserole was VERY salty, but I did add leftover ham. Perhaps I should not have salted the water for the squash.
