Sufganiyot

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
I love real french beignets (not the NOreleans style), and Jewish doughnuts are the only thing that tastes closest! My Israeli friend made them for me for Christmas/Hannukah-she swore I would love them and she was right, they were fabulous! Oh, I love them! Thanks Aviv,for the self-rising sub., and Jesusistheway for the lowerfat version, and M. Levy for the recipe! (It is a good way to not throw that not too old yogurt away..)!

Almond Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
You know what makes recipes like this one so nice?!-is not just it's ease and simplicity-but the base for so many nice touches, like fresh raspberries and rasp. sauce w/sliced almonds, or kiwi and chocolate sauce drizzled on top, just to name a few (all that makes it look like you spent forever on this!) Or, you can make the bar and sell 'em quick! Thanks Sandy-we love almonds here and this is quick and tasty (or gourmet..)!

Weeknight Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
I've done almost the same recipe, but the sauce I used a cup of frozen blueberries and 1 1/2T balsamic vinegar combined w/chopped shallots..very tangy and the sweetness and deep blue (plus antioxidant blueberries is good) is a nice complement to pork. I will try this one for something different (much nicer than breaded, also never tried with sauce baked on sounds good)--thanks!

Sour Cream Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2010
Y'all, this is one delicious cake (I guess we all have different tastes..But we sure LOVE this one-and it tastes great w/out chocolate too as basic vanilla base cake )! Like others, I'm not at all crazy about the 'lead weight' dense choc. cakes that are popular these days, so this was a nice 'old fashioned' Devil's Food type cake. I would have given it 5 stars, but like others said, it is just a bit dry (even w/being careful not to overbake). So I will be tryin' to tweak it to see what I can do to moisten it up..otherwise it is just right! Thank you for sharing! It's a permanent recipe in the box!

Ranch-Style Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
Never thought of this- as a twist on regular Deggs..I think I solved the dryness of it though-instead of using mayo and mix, I add 'Litehouse' ranch dressing. Wow, that's good (it's versatile too) add some chopped green onion and a few bacon pieces. The possibilities are endless. Thanks for another way of looking at an old favorite!

Amish Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
I guess there's a reason everyone gives this one 5! It is incredibly easy and really tasty!! I got it all ready before bed and popped it in the oven for breakfast! This is one hearty breakfast-my daughter loved it so much she wanted some after school! The only thing I did differently was reduced the bacon in half and added yellow and red pepper in same amount as the onion and cooked those together-it was marvelous! I must agree, I thought the cottage cheese was iffy, but I guess that's why we follow recipes-vielen Danke Amisher leute! Thanks for posting!

Grandma VanDoren's White Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2010
I have orders from the kids: "we will not eat that stuff from the store anymore". My son loves to cook and was amazed at the process and simplicity at making the perfect homemade white bread-think I have a budding chef! I have been looking for this recipe all my life! I wanted an EASY bread -not from a breadmaker -(there's nothin' like the feel of kneading fresh dough!) I am sooo pleased! As others have said it freezes so well (I am going to attempt freezing dough, after 1st rise, so we have fresh from the oven...!) If you want a simple, delectable and versatile bread (rosemary/thyme, cinnamon/raisin, cheddar, etc..), the possibilities are endless-this is your bread!! I actually got four good sized loaves!! There should be 10 stars for this one! P.S. to Ms. Sim-I met a lady a long time ago who had a 'secret' family recipe from her grandmother for the most delicious homemade olives I have ever had (and I DON'T LIKE them!) Anyway, she would be a little self centered w/ the attention whenever asked for the recipe (many did). She died a few years ago along w/her family olive recipe. She had no children or siblings. So her grandmothers wonderful recipe is lost. I am TRULY grateful to you who share these family treasures. I hope Grandma Van Doren is pleased w/ all the VERY happy children she is feeding!! My best to you!

Meg's Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2010
I just made these beauties! I must add, my family's fav cookie is this one. I try a ton of recipes for this, but I think I found "the one"! I must also add that I too did some little tweaks, like less chips (we like the cookie) and reduced salt to almost nothin' since I had only salted butter on hand (still perfect), but most importantly..I did one stick butter and finished w/1/2C. canola oil (my husband has high BP and it doesn't hurt none to mix up your oil (I know that will make the pastry folks wince), but really they turn out perfect! (You get only half the butter and some good for ya oil--so it's health food now y'all!) I also threw in some finely ground hazelnut about 1/2C(your coffee will love you), but was disappointed by the 42 cookie yeild (I am not counting the fact that dough MUST be sampled!!) Just keep your sampling in check and maybe you'll get the right number! (For the person who didn't like Ms. M's cookies..it may be that you didn't use high quality ingredients?! I have found it can significantly improve the flavor of everything!) Thank you for sharing Ms. M, they are easy and delicious!

Mardi Gras King Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2010
Thank you for this lovely American ('cajun') recipe..I have been looking for the French style cake, but find this one to be a great alternative! If you are short on time and want a delicious filling (although it can be 'pricey') spread a tube of quality almond paste (there is a high quality marzipan from Holland sold at Target!) and wow--it is yummy! (Use some melted butter still) Bonne Fete des Anniversaire Bebe Jesus!! He certainly deserves such a delight in his honor!!

Hot German Potato Salad III

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
This is an easier recipe than some of the german ones i've seen. I lived there for several years and this is a good recipe. You can try caraway seed instead of celery, but use a smaller amount (very strong flavor), but is delicious! Thank you for a time saver form of a wonderful dish!

Easy Texas Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
It sounds yummy and will make it tonight. (I had red kidney beans in a chili I really liked made by my bro in law-a native Texan. So I think I'll use those instead) I don't think the authenticity matters as much as the taste and this sounds great! Have a bag of Frederiksburg Tx. Campfire cornbread mix to go with-yeehaw! Thank you very much for sharing.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
I haven't had a mom since I was 12-so thank your mom (she's kindof everyone's like this..) Thanks for sharing. I am one now and have a little boy who WON'T touch a veggie. I have to be creative w/health! This is fabulous and easy! You can also add dried carrots and finely ground flaxseed. Use DHA oil, and substitute beet sugar (if you haven't tried it-it puts cane to shame!) A friend also suggested adding 1/2 the zuchinni recipe w/ yellow squash to up the veggie ante (haven't tried..yet) But will do ANYTHING to get a veggie in the boy!
