Pumpkin Crunch Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2010
I am not the best cook by any stretch of the imagination. But even I couldn't mess this up!! I absolutely loved it! Was a big hit a both my work gathering and extended family gathering. Because there was so much food at the family gathering I did have left overs, and I am so sick of pumpkin now becasue I gorged myself on the cake until it was gone. Delish!!

Balsamic-Glazed Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2010
This was a great recipe. Really simple and adds a fantastic flavor to salmon. Not one negative thing to say about this recipe. The ingredients were all things I had around the house and went together very well. My husband was so impressed!

Baked Pancakes with Sausages

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2010
I really liked the texture of the finished pancake and think that adding sausage links is genius! But I do think it is lacking that "something" that gives the pancake a great flavor. I followed recipe to the "t" other than adding 1 tsp vanilla but still found it lacking. Granted, once I poured syrup over the top it was great. For my hubs who doesn't use syrup (wierdo) he thought it tasted a little like a corn bread. Will definitely make again but will try to find what that something is that is missing. (We are used to eating pancakes at Mimi's Cafe which are the best I have ever had, I have never found a pancake that compares.) I love the fact that you can cut into portions and eat on the run minus the syrup. Tip: use the nonstick Reynolds foil (the best invention ever) and you don't have to grease the pan first (i use this for everything, works like a charm).

Drunken Sailors

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
I thought these tasted delicious. I used two packages of keilbasa but did not double the liquids based on other reviews that there was a lot of liquid. I added just a few more ounces of the ketchup and bbq sauce. I did use a little more brown sugar and kept with the 1/2 cup whiskey. Simmered on low for 6 hours just as stated and was very pleased. I did taste test throughout the day, and it seems that while it tasted good throughout the day, the long simmering time really does the trick and they became so tender after the full 6 hours.

Breakfast Casserole II

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
I'm giving this 4 stars because it has good bones, but it does need a little tweeking to really get some good flavor. Per another reviewers suggestion, I used cream of mushroom and roasted garlic soup. I really liked the additional layer of taste. I always like to use dry mustard in savory dishes like this so added a little to this. I browned the crowns prior to making the dish. Didn't really take more time, as I put the crowns in the oven before I even took the other ingredients out of the fridge / pantry. As the crowns cooked I browned the sausage (adding diced onion) and then made the egg mixture. I added the cheese into the egg mixture to even distribute the cheese so there wasn't a big glob on to. Turned out nicely, but seems that it is still missing some oomph. But will make again.

Chocolate Spiders

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
I used half choc chips and half butterscotch chips. The butterscotch chips added a lot of needed flavor as the noodles are just totally flavorless. But they were easy turned out super cute! I think I will try these again at Christmas (minus the spider eyes!) and break up pretzel sticks. I think they would add alot more flavor (but also more work).

Amish Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2009
This is a fantastic breakfast casserole. I'm not a big fan of the bread type casseroles, and this was just the ticket. I followed the recipe exactly besides using 7 eggs and adding a tad of salt and pepper (based on other reviews). Don't be afraid of the cottage cheese, you will never know it is there. I did broil the casserole for a few minutes when it was finished baking just to melt the cheeses evenly on top (dind't want any cottage cheese showing or my husband wouldn't eat it!). I'm making this again this weekend for a baby shower as it is so easy. Will be intersting to see if a group of gals enjoy it as much as my husband and his friend.
