West Indian Curried Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2007
I made this for my family yesterday. I used regular curry and about 2 tbsps less than the recipe called for and only 2 tsps of salt. It turned out awesome! I served it over plain white rice and it was very filling. We ate it up! No more buying ready made mixes for me. Thank you!

Quick and Easy Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2007
Awesome recipe! I didn't change a thing and they came out PERFECT. I too, was happy to see a recipe that called for cocoa powder instead of baking squares. Thank you for a tasty recipe that wil be used again and again!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2007
I'm reviewing this again- 2 years later and it's STILL the only potato soup recipe I use. I wish I could give you 10 stars! It's absolutely delicious. We eat it at least every other month and EVERY month during the winter season. Thanks again!!! Original review- This recipe was a hit with my family, we all had seconds and what little leftovers there were went to work with my husband. I served it with a fresh warm loaf of french bread. I used a salty smoked ham called kassler (found here in Sweden) and only 2 tsp of chicken bouillon. I also added 1/3 cup of sliced carrots. It was absolutely perfect and I will definitely be making it again. Thursday is the unofficial Soup day in Sweden and this was perfect! Thank you!

Bake Sale Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2007
I made these a few minutes ago and followed Gourmet Mommy's advice and will put it here so no one else has to scroll back 4 years!!---->(From Gourmet Mommy: My alterations make this a five star recipe, in my opinion. I like my lemon bars tart, not sickening sweet. Here's what I do: Decrease temp to 350 degrees. Leave crust the same, put in 9 x 13 enameled metal pan. Bake 15 min. For filling, double flour and eggs, use 1 C lemon juice and 1 3/4 C sugar. Add 3 drops yellow food coloring. Bake 20 min.) ** Now I did not use the food coloring and added 1/2 tsp lemon extract. I also used 2/3 cup butter on accident, but the bars did not turn out too buttery or greasy. Delicious and I will be using this recipe during the holidays.

Chunky Apple Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2008
Awesome recipe Joan! We went to an orchard this year and picked over 60 lbs of apples. I had 10 different varieties and wanted to make something that I could give out as gifts. This bread was terrific! For my personal taste, I made these changes: I used 3 apples of varying degrees of sweetness, 1 1/2 c. sugar, 2 tsp of cinnamon and 2 tsp of vanilla extract. I didn't have mayonnaise so I substituted plain yogurt. Not a fan of raisins in bread so I left them out. I have now made this recipe three times and each time I got rave reviews. Thanks for another "keeper" in my recipe box!

Apple Crisp III

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2008
Thanks for a yummy recipe Carrie! My family loved this. The only changes I made was to cut the sugar down to 2/3 c. and add another tsp of cinnamon. I used fresh picked apples of varying sweetness. I added the water but wound up getting applesauce crisp so I think next time I will leave it out or just use a few teaspoons. I served it with vanilla sauce and boy was it delicious. Still gets 5 stars for ease of baking and taste!

Scalloped Potatoes and Onions

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2008
You know when you're trying out a new recipe and there comes a point in the preparation when you know, you just KNOW that it's going to turn out delicious? Well that's how this dish was for me! When I poured the sauce over the potatoes and onions I knew it was going to taste good, and it did! My family ate it up. I didn't have ready made chicken broth so I used a tbsp of chicken boullion and 1 3/4 c. water. I also used 2 tbsp of plain yogurt instead of the mayo. I didn't have paprika either so I just sprinkled the top with Mrs. Dash table seasoning and it still tasted great. I was worried that it might have had too much onion, but I worried for nothing. The onions didn't overpower the potatoes. This recipe definitely goes in the recipe box! Thanks for an easy and tasty dish!

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2008
I'm reviewing this again since I have made it almost 10 times now. You deserve 10 stars for this recipe. Thank you again and again and again! I never cook pork roast any other way except this way. Super terrific awesome VERY flavorful. I sometimes just sprinkle the salt on it so it doesn't get too salty. I use smoke flavored sea salt. (All I can find here in Sweden) Shred at the end and let the juices absorb into the meat. It has never failed to come out moist and juicy. I can't rave enough LOL!

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2009
Indeed, this is a delicious cake! I made it for my son's birthday for a German chocolate cake and it came out perfect. I increased the cocoa to an exact 1 cup measurement. Moist and fluffy, not dry at all. This recipe has already been saved as my standard chocolate cake recipe. Thanks a bunch!

Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2009
Awesome recipe and a big hit at a friend's birthday party! My only substitution was that I used confectioner's sugar. I had no problem with it being too runny. I whipped the cream and put it in the fridge while I mixed the cream cheese. I had enough frosting to cover two 9 x 13 cakes. Everyone raved about the taste, it was delicious and just right, not too heavy on the cream cheese flavor and not too sweet. Thanks!

Plum Quick Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2011
I don't usually eat plums, but we found some trees loaded with them and decided to pick a few pounds...I give this recipe 5 stars, although I did make several changes to suit my family. 1. I only used the 1 c. of regular white sugar in the batter. 2. I used 1/2 c. vegetable oil. 3. I didn't have buttermilk and I live in Sweden so I used 1 c. of filmjölk (thick sour milk) and 1/2 c. of regular 2% milk. I sprinkled the cinnamon on top of the batter then I mixed 1/2 c. brown sugar with 1 c. chopped pecans. It came out very tasty! I like the flavor of the lemon in the bread too. I used yellow Shiro plums which were ripe and sweet. Some of the plums sank to the bottom of the pan even though I floured them beforehand, but we don't mind. This was a nice change from the usual sweet breads. It was delicious~ Thank you for a lovely recipe!

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2011
Great cookie! I liked your customized recipe better than the original because there was less sugar. The cookies just came out of the oven and they are a little crunchy on the edges but soft and chewy on the inside. It's just right, not too soft or gooey. I added 1 cup of raisins and used 1 tsp cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg. The house smells great, and the cookies are delicious. Less sugar doesn't mean less taste, it means you can actually taste the oats without it being overpowered by sugar! Thanks again- this one's a keeper. :)

Hot Breakfast Couscous

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2011
Fantastic!! I LOVE couscous and I used regular couscous (not the pearl kind). I made the recipe for just 2 people and left out the fruit, and added 1/2 c. more milk and 1/2 c. more almonds. This was so delicious! I really like the crunchy-nutty taste of the almonds, and the light sweetness of the honey. Super healthy, low carb and low salt too! Plus, I was full for the entire morning until lunch time, no cravings for snacks. Thanks so much for a yummy recipe...it's already been added to favorites!

Four Egg Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2012
What a delicious cake this is! My changes: I used butter instead of shortening, I doubled the vanilla and added 1/4 cup more milk. I made a Bundt cake and it was gigantic! (I also made a mini cake to taste test it in advance) A box mix would have given me 2/3 of the size I got from this recipe. I think the texture was fine, you can tell it is a cake from scratch, it has a different density but still tastes yummy! I plan on using chocolate frosting on it because it will be a birthday cake, but honestly, no frosting is needed! Thanks for a great recipe, it's a keeper!
