Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2002
I made a number of substitutions based on ingredients I had around the house: penne rigate for the pasta, a combo of cream, half & half and 1% milk for the cream, ground red pepper (1/8-1/4 t.) for the red pepper flakes, and crushed Italian tomatoes for the whole tomatoes. It was delicious -- a very flexible recipe!

Bacon Cheeseburger Cake

Reviewed: May 21, 2006
What an adorable idea! I made this cake for a school function where the children got to select cakes as prizes. Not only did I receive many compliments as I carried the cake down the hallway, but it was also one of the first ones chosen! I can't vouch for how it tastes since I didn't eat it, but it was very easy to make. I simplified the recipe by omitting the "bacon," wrapping whole vanilla wafers (instead of halves) in fruit leather, using yellow fruit leather for the "cheese," instead of fruit-flavored candy, and using yellow and red decorator icing for the "mustard" and "ketchup." I also cut the green fruit leather in strips to look like shredded lettuce. By the way, my local grocery store sells boxes of fruit leather in primary colors, but they have "tongue tattoos" on them. I felt that the tattoos weren't that noticeable and were pretty easy to hide under the bun.

Cornbread Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2011
My family loved them! They are much better than the cornmeal griddle cake recipe I usually use - very moist and fluffy. (Gotta love buttermilk!) I have been trying prepare higher fiber foods, and this recipe fit the bill.

Authentic German Potato Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
This potato salad was wonderful - even better leftover. I reduced the sugar, as recommended by other reviewers and added real bacon bits to boost the bacon flavor without cooking additional slices. I also saved time by using sliced red potatoes (no peeling) and by substituting sliced green onions for the onions and parsley.

Broccoli Ham Ring

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2007
Beautiful, tasty and easy! I substituted boxed frozen broccoli with thyme for the fresh broccoli and honey mustard for the Dijon since that's more appealing to my kids. I also omitted the onions and added some dry thyme. It was a hit!

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2011
I cooked fresh green beans for this recipe and substituted chopped scallions for the onion since that is what I had on hand. My whole family liked the dish, but we were split 50-50 on whether we preferred this recipe or the traditional green bean casserole. The verdict: will keep and use both recipes!

Smoky Bacon Wraps

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2008
My husband and I had this appetizer at a party and really liked it, so I was delighted to find the recipe. I could find only the cheese-filled lil' smokies at the store, but they were great. We did not measure the brown sugar, just sprinkled it on to taste. This dish was the hit of our party and disappeared quickly! It's incredibly unhealthy, but oh so yummy!

Raspberry Cherry Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2009
My mom has made Cherry Berry pie for years, but it has never been one of my favorites because of all the raspberry seeds. However, I made this recipe for company, and it was a hit! The flavor was great (despite all the seeds) :-) I used my mom's crust recipe, which is similar to this one, fresh-picked raspberries, and a crumb topping. We ate the pie when it was still warm, so it was a bit runny. Maybe it will firm up a bit as it sits.

French Apple Tart (Tarte de Pommes a la Normande)

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
Wow - well worth the effort! I made this tart as directed and ended up with a stunning dessert that tasted as good as it looked. The recipe is definitely a keeper!

Golden Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2010
My family really liked this soup. I used cheddar in place of the American cheese and bacon instead of ham. A great comfort food!

Chicken Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
I found this recipe very tasty. I didn't have time to cut carrots and celery, so I substituted frozen peas and carrots and also used thyme instead of savory. The family loved it! Definitely a comfort food.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: May 4, 2012
I followed another reviewer's suggestion and reduced the sugar to 3/4 c. (1/2 c. white and 1/4 c. brown) and added 1/2 t. baking soda and some vanilla. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the cookies did not fall apart, and they were delicious! In fact, that's the drawback - I can't stop eating them!

Becel® Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2012
This was a good, solid recipe. I used real butter because I am a butter snob and probably 1/2 t. of rosemary instead of 1 t. (did not measure). I also added a little salt. The cooking time was longer for me - probably a full hour - even though I used a food processor to slice the potatoes thinly. My family enjoyed the dish.

Aunt Blanche's Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2002
I didn't experience any of the problems mentioned in some of the other reviews. The muffins were crispy and golden on the outside and fluffy on the inside, and the flavor was fantastic! I ate far too many in one sitting! Definitely a keeper for my family.

'Chinese Buffet' Green Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2012
Wow - I love any recipe that makes my entire family happy, and this one fit the bill! We tend to like our green beans a little softer than the ones you get in Chinese restaurants, so I boiled them for a bit before sautéing them. I also omitted the soy sauce since some reviewers complained about the saltiness. They beans turned out perfectly for us!

Autumn Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2002
I made this for dinner guests, and it was a hit - even the one non-cheesecake eater in the group said he liked it. I added the extra cream cheese, etc. as suggested, but it took about two hours in the oven before it set. Next time I would add more cinnamon.

Yellow Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2003
I started baking this casserole at a lower temp because I had something else in the oven but then increased to 400 later -- took a little longer than 25 minutes, of course, but still turned out beautifully. A delicious way to eat squash!

Easy Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2003
One of the best banana breads I've tasted! Unlike some banana breads that don't become moist until they've sat around for a couple days, this one is moist straight from the oven. Oh, and no crack on top during baking! I was too lazy to use my mixer and just stirred the batter by hand (used butter-flavored shortening and melted it first), and it came out great!

Oatmeal Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2003
I was looking for a non-raisin, non-spice oatmeal cookie, and the flavor of this recipe is delicious! It's more of a "special occasion" cookie than a "lunchbox cookie." There was no need to flatten them -- they spread and became very lacy. I had to let them cool completely before removing them from the cookie sheet or they crumbled. (Perhaps because I substituted butter-flavored shortening or used non-stick foil instead of parchment?) For one batch I used a bag of plain toffee bits, and for another I used 1 c. toffee bits and 1 c. white chocolate chips. Both ways tasted great!
