Apple Pie in a Brown Paper Bag

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
This is my husband's favorite pie. I have been making it for at least thirty years. It is always delicious, and I always bake it in a brown (grocery) bag. It will smell like paper toasting for a little while, but it is fine! You can close it with a couple of large paper clips, that's what I use.

Cherry Spice Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2007
I was really disappointed in this recipe, I thought it sounded delicious. First of all, I only have 2 9" pans so that's what I used and it was fine. If you used 3 pans I guess it would come out more like a torte, with three thin layers. What was disappointing to me was the texture, it was more like a gingerbread-type texture, a little on the dry side. And it sort of tasted like gingerbread! I love gingerbread but that is not what I was expecting from this recipe I wanted a cake. I would not make this again.

Pumpkin and Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
This is a very good soup the way it is written. If you don't puree it, you are not having this soup the way it is intended and are missing something! Just before I pureed it I had decided that the next time I made it I would probably cut back on the chicken both because it seemed a little "watery". But once I pureed it, (one cup at a time so it didn't explode out of the blender!) it was a rich and creamy and wonderful soup. That COMPLETELY changed the soup...for the better. I'm not a fan of spicy hot, but I did enjoy the andouille in this recipe, it isn't too spicy. I think next time I'm going to try a breakfast sausage though, just to try it a different way.

Salmon Fillets with Creamy Dill

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2005
I don't know how long this recipe has been available at this site, but I don't think I'd ever seen a recipe without rates or reviews before and I want to encourage you to try this dish. It has a yummy, rich topping, definitely not for the person that wants a plain piece of salmon. I recommend making half of the mayonnaise/mustard topping. There is NO way you need as much as the recipe calls for, and that would greatly reduce the fat and calorie count. With that one change I think you'll find this is a delicious way to enjoy your salmon.

Fresh Pear Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2005
My husband and I really enjoyed this cake. I did halve the nutmeg and cloves because a lot of the reviewers recommended it and I was afraid I'd get a Spice Cake with some pears when what I wanted was a Pear Cake with some spices. I was pleased with the balance. Also, I think the 2 cups of sugar was fine, not too sweet and I used 2 eggs instead of 4 egg whites(I hate trying to figure our what to do with 4 egg yolks!). One thing I want to caution other bakers about, is that I feel my oven heats to a reliable temperature and at 60 minutes I felt like this cake was perhaps 5 minutes overdone. Next time I will start checking it at 50 minutes even though some reviewers said that the hour and 10 minutes was not enough!

Grandma's Gingersnap Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2005
This is a good cookie....but! It is too much like a snickerdoodle to be a great cookie. They turned out nice and soft and everyone liked them, that's why I gave the recipe 4 stars. I sifted powdered sugar over them as they came out of the oven, I think that made them look nicer. Maybe next time I'll buy some really good ginger and increase the amount to give them the pizzaz I think they need.

Divine Summertime Chicken Sandwich

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2005
This is a divine chicken sandwich anytime of the year! The only thing I did different was to serve it on Baker's Inn Hearty Potato with Grain bread instead of French bread. I felt the sandwich deserved a bread with a little more punch and it was heavenly! Thanks Meezergirl1.

Mixed Greens with Smoked Gouda

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2005
This salad made for a nice dinner on a "too hot to cook" night. My changes were to skip the soy sauce (personal preference), and to heat up some Louis Rich chicken breast strips and serve them on top of the salad to make it more of a meal. Add your favorite bread and you have a yummy dinner!

Garlic Mashed Potatoes Secret Recipe

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2005
This were very yummy! I liked this recipe because it did not require that you roasted the garlic. Those recipes may have a richer garlic taste but I was looking for quick and easy! I added a little bit more garlic because we like it a lot. The only thing I will do different next time is to add a little heated milk. I like garlic mashed potatoes to be thicker than regular mashed potatoes, but I felt like maybe 1/4 of a cup for 4 servings might be about right to keep them from being too dry. (Don't forget to heat the milk!!!) Great and simple recipe, THANKS!!

Easiest Spicy Cod

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2005
This is the easiest spicy cod! I bought a bottle of medium spicy salsa. Pour it over the fish as per instructions and presto, an easy, low-fat, low-calorie, low-carb meal! I don't even eat salsa, but was tired of cod the same old way and thought I'd give it a try. Wonderful! The only thing I did different was to melt cheddar on my portion, and my husband sprinkled parmesean on his. Thanks Sara, I'm always looking for easy, healthy, different recipes to make!

Creme Brulee French Toast

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2005
This is very good! I wouldn't compare it to creme brulee but it is a wonderful "breakfast casserole". I didn't cut off the crusts and I can't imagine that it would be any better after you took all the time to do that. What I do suggest is to serve with sliced strawberries as another reviewer recommended. I think that greatly inhanced the flavors. Thanks Sandi!

California Chicken Spaghetti

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2005
This is an excellent recipe, I encourage you to try it! The small changes I made were to use a 28 ounce can of diced tomatoes instead of the fresh (which incidentally is one of the greatest things to come along since sliced bread!!! I use them all the time), reduced the dried basil and added some fresh, and I used Chef Paul's Magic Salmon seasonings(!) instead of the cajun. I will be making this easy yet DELICIOUS recipe often.

Cousin Cosmo's Greek Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2005
This is so tasty plus it's low-fat, low calories, and low carbs! I used a 14 ounce can of diced tomatoes instead of the fresh tomato and was very pleased with the results. I highly recommend this recipe. Thanks for posting it Orisha!

Awesome Roast Beef

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2005
I didn't really care for this that much. The 3 pound rump roast was not that tender. I cooked on low for 8 hours, I think that was too long. Next time I will check with a meat thermometer. Also, I thought the condensed beef broth was overpowering. To help with that I used 1/4 cup sherry and that was very tasty. Next time I'm going to use regular beef broth though and still add the sherry.

Juiciest Hamburgers Ever

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2005
This recipe greatly improved our hamburgers. They are now very juicy and delectable. I was a little apprehensive about trying these because of the "meatloaf on a bun" review. I didn't find these to be meatloaf-like at all! The recipe could possibly use some of your favorite spices, but you will be surprised how the few ingredients in this recipe can turn your ground beef into your new favorite, juicy burgers!

Chicken Claridge Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2005
This is a nice alternative to beef stew. The reviews regarding the tomatoes made me a little nervous about using them. We really like tomatoes so, I drained the can of diced tomatoes and did not use the juice. I felt like maybe the juice would overpower the chicken taste. We enjoyed it this way very much. The other thing I did different was to add another 1/2 - 1 Cup of chicken broth JUST BEFORE serving to get the "stew consistency" I wanted. It was a little too thick without. Probably because, in part, due to not using the tomato juice. I did not serve over rice, very yummy without.

Cream of Herb Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2005
My husband and I thought this was wonderful! It is very different from the soups I usually make, so I was apprehensive about serving it. I'm used to all kinds of vegetables and meat etc. in my soups, but we will be having this often. It is very easy to make and quite delicious. The only thing I did different was to use a Vidalia onion instead of the green onions. I would recommend that you give it a try. Thanks for submitting this recipe Corwynn.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2004
These cookies are VERY good. If you are used to Tollhouse cookies these might not be what you are looking for, but if you are looking for something a little different this recipe should make you happy. This is a HEARTY cookie. When you bite into these you know your eating something! I think Tollhouse are my favorites, but this is a very close second. While these do come out nice and moist, after a few days they might start to dry out a little, as with any cookie. Here is my tip for keeping any cookie moist in your container. Put a double thick piece of wax paper on top of the cookies and on top of that place a piece of white bread, I like to use the crust since no one in our house likes to eat it anyway! (If the bread touches the cookies, the cookies will get soggy.) If the piece of bread dries out replace it with another. This will keep your cookies moist no matter how long they last.

Slow Cooker Rosemary and Red Pepper Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2004
My husband and I both thought this was excellent and VERY flavorful. It does need salt added to the crock pot ingredients before cooking for 5-7 hours. Also, I used chicken broth instead of the vermouth in the main recipe. You can make a lot more sauce than the recipe calls for and I think that it really adds to the dish. I used about 1/4 cup of bisquick (instead of cornstarch) and more chicken broth (instead of water) to make the sauce and it was delicious over the chicken and thin spaghetti I served it with. You can not go wrong with a low fat/low calorie/low carb meal that tastes this good!

Cream of Mushroom Chicken

Reviewed: May 4, 2004
I thought this was going to be better. The vidaia onions I used smelled so good cooking. But there seemed like there was something missing, it needs a little kick, but I don't know what. I used NO water, it absolutely does not need it. The chicken was very tender,and it is low in fat and calories. I just wish I could have rated it higher.
