Li'l Cheddar Meat Loaves

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2004
I have found that the brown sugar DOES need to be reduced to half, at least for my family's taste. I also sometimes add crushed french fried onions-if I don't have any fresh onions- and instead of the oats, I prefer to use about 3/4 cup of seasoned bread crumbs. Lastly, I form this into a large oval in either a jelly roll pan, or 13x9 pan, and adjust the oven time to about 45-50 mins {very approximate guess!} The leftovers are great, and my family loves this dish. It can be greasy, but meatloaf has never been known to be a top health food, right?!!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2004
Once again........funny, but every once in a while a recipe comes along so highly rated and reveiwed that I have to try it. I try to ignore the nay-sayers who weren't altogether thrilled with the recipe and pass them off as people who probably don't like much of anything anyway{ouch..sorry!!}..... HOWEVER- I'm with the minority on this one. I made the recipe exactly as written,and yes, it was dense, it was easy, it even cooked well in a bundt pan. But that's where my thrill ended. There was nothing extrordinary about it, and unfortunately, my husband agreed. I WILL give this recipe another chance however, by using the cinnamon, vanilla, and possibly nutmeg that other reviewers have tried. Every recipe deserves a second chance, and I feel this one does have possibilities. It may taste better today {2nd day} than yesterday, and I will have to try it toasted as Shelley suggested.

Creamy Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2004
This recipe never fails me. It makes a generous portion {13x9 pan}, and keeps EXTREMELY well. Not that it lasts that long at my house....I have found that I prefer the taste of this when I use non-generic peanut butter. It just seems to come out a bit more peanut-buttery. This recipe makes you look like a pro in the kitchen, so be sure to pass some of the fudge out as little gifts for co-workers, family and such. They'll be awed by your prowess! Thanks so much Janet.

Warm and Spicy Autumn Punch

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2001
WOW! I got rave reviews when I made this for a small church function this fall- it smelled SO good, and tasted equally as wonderfull. Not as 'heavy' as a traditional mulled cider, which was nice. I didn't do the orange/whole cloves thingy, but it didn't make the beverage lack for anything. We used a nice glass pitcher and had the two cinnamon sticks in it, which made the drink look very festive. I should've doubled the recipe, and when I make this for Thanksgiving, I'll do that and put it in a coffee carafe {you know, the kind you pump to get the coffee out?} or maybe a crock pot turned on low. What a wonderfull smell that would be in the house!!! THis recipe is easy and pretty inexpensive, which is SO nice--thanks for a good one!

Buttery Cooked Carrots

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2001
I came across this recipe which is just like one I use; mine's called 'candied carrots' { like the yams...}. My family adores this recipe-I use packaged baby carrots if I have them, and I use my steamer basket to steam them.It's just as quick and makes me think I'm keeping SOME nutritional value to the carrots when I serve them this way!!! I'll be making this yummy dish for Thanksgiving.

Cinnamon Swirl Bundt Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2001
I have gotten more compliments on this coffee cake!! I also substitute brown sugar for the white {to mix with the cinnamon}. It really is light and airy, NOT dry at all, and absolutely delicious. This is the coffee cake I make when I want to impress my visitors or when I go for coffee at someone else's house! I've also baked this in 2 loaf pans and it's come out quite good-one's usually a little bigger than the other but that's ok..... Thanks for the great recipe Ruth!
