Morning Glory Muffins I

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2010
Delicious! I just made these following some of the suggestions of other users and they are great! I used 1 c. whole wheat flour and 1 c. bread flour, added 1/2 c. nuts, 1/2 c. apple sauce, and 1/2 c. homemade apple butter. To make the homemade apple butter I put 1 c. of applesauce on the stove with 1/8 c. brown sugar, 1/8 tsp. cinnamon, 1/8 tsp. pumpkin pie spice and 1/8 tsp. nutmeg. Cook the mixture on a low heat until it darkens, thickens, and reduces by about half. I also added in 1/2 c. of oatmeal to make it more heart healthy and added 1/2 tsp. more baking powder to compensate. Yum! Finally I can have muffins without guilt!

Peppy's Pita Bread

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
Wow! This recipe is fantastic! After reading several sad online blogs about pitas that wouldn't puff I must admit I was nervous about trying this recipe, but in the end they turned out great! I rolled the dough very thin (based on blog recommendations) and then let it rise for 15 minutes in a warm place before putting them in the oven. Next, I placed the pitas directly onto a well-seasoned pan I'd been heating in the oven. I put the pitas back in, tossed a handful of ice cubes onto the oven floor (this keeps the dough soft but not soggy), cooked them for 2-4 minutes and then flipped for another 3 minutes of cooking. They puffed perfectly and turned a beautiful golden brown. When I pulled them out I put them into a sealed brown paper bag until they cooled and kept making new batches. Since I made mine smaller than the recommended size I ended up with about 15-20 six inch pita pockets. I couldn't be happier!

Halloween Brain Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
What a cute idea! I passed on the fruit roll-ups and made my veins with red and blue frosting (much easier!) but the overall effect of this was fantastic! Not to mention it's nice to be able serve some real food at my Halloween party.

Cupcake Graveyard

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2010
I just made this for a Halloween party at work and it was a HUGE hit! Everyone said that this dish WAS the party and with the addition of some half-buried gummy skeletons, candy corn pumpkins, and plastic party favors it really was a stunning centerpiece!

Lit'l Smokies® Mummy Dogs

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
These were easy to make and a huge hit at my Halloween party! I found that using a pizza cutter to make the strips really made the process easy and they made a nice savory compliment to all my Halloween candies and desserts.

Pudding-Topped Fruit Salad

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
I was going to make this for a potluck but after realizing that it takes time for the pudding to set up I had to postpone my potluck plans. But it all worked out in the end because now I have this delicious dish all for myself! This recipe is fantastic! I used canned peaches instead of fresh since they aren't in season here and added fresh blackberries and it turned out delicious. I've been eating it twice a day since my failed potluck adventure and I have no complaints! Yum.

French Baguettes

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
I've made this recipe three times already and it's a huge hit! I find that it helps to put a dish with water in it on the bottom shelf and then pull it out for the last 5-10 minutes of the baking process. It helps keep the bread from burning and lets you get a great crispy, crunchy crust at the end. I also find that I like the look and texture of the bread better without the egg yolk wash, and have started brushing olive oil over the bread during the last 5-10 minutes to get that nice golden color without all the mess and hassle of the egg. Thanks for a great recipe!

Bread Machine Focaccia

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
This recipe was delicious and super easy with the help of the breadmaker! I added fresh herbs to the dough from my garden (basil, rosemary, and a couple leaves of oregano) and found that it gave the bread a delicious flavor. Also, I spread the dough out onto a 9x13 pan and found it provided a great shape for easy sandwich making later. Yum!

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
This recipe is amazing! I've never really liked pork chops in their typical fried and overcooked form-- but this recipe was delicious, nutritious, and super easy! To save time on clean up I coated the pan with aluminum foil before putting in the pork chops and afterwards I just crumpled up the mess. Also, I used Fuji apples since I didn't have Granny Smiths and kept the skin on for the color. The whole thing turned out melt in your mouth good! Thank you so much! I'm going to make this again and again!

Apple Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2010
These were hands down the best muffins I have ever made! They were moist and delicious and everyone loved them. I tweaked the recipe a bit by doubling the apples, adding 1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice, 1/2 tsp. vanilla, a crumb topping, and a caramel topping drizzled over everything. Yum!

Peach Ice Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2010
Incredible! After two failed ice cream attempts I've finally found the perfect recipe. This was easy to make, tasted great, and even stayed delicious and soft after freezing. I will definitely be using this as a base for my future ice cream endeavors! Yum.

Coconut Lime Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2010
I really didn't care for this recipe. I thought that the lime flavor was overwhelming and I had to add about 2 tablespoons of sugar to make it even edible. I added in cilantro and some thai cinnamon basil which made it look better, but the taste just was not up to par. I really wanted to like this more than I did... Next time I think I will stick with the basic coconut rice recipe and leave out the lime.

Suzy's Mashed Red Potatoes

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
I've actually been making a version of this recipe for ages and it's a big hit! As some of the other reviewers mentioned I add salt and a little bit of olive oil to the water while the potatoes are cooking and then add garlic to the potatoes. If I'm feeling decadent I also add some shredded cheese (Mexican cheese usually, although others would work too) and use half and half instead of milk. I call it smashed potatoes-- but regardless of what you call it, this recipe is a keeper!
