Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2013
This was delicious. A few modifications - I used 4 teaspoons cornstarch and used splenda and brown sugar splenda. In this recipe I couldn't taste a difference to regular sugar. I read about people boiling/cooling the peaches to remove the skin. If you have a good peeler it comes off easily and much quicker than that process. Peeling worked for both very ripe and more firm peaches. I'd make it again for sure and would also consider using other fruits.

Unbelievable Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2012
Really tasty. I didn't have the prepared mustard so I used ground mustard (1 tsp = 1 tbl of the prepared mustard). I baked them in the marinade in the oven for 30 min at 350. I also only marinated them about an hour before and it still had a lot of flavor (probably from cooking it while it was soaking).

Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
Easy and delicious. I made a few modifications based on others comments: 2 cans of jumbo buttermilk biscuits, real butter, splenda instead of sugar, and no nuts or raisins. I found a steak knife cute through the piles of raw biscuits with no trouble. The coating powder is more than you need if you use the two jumbo biscuit cans, you can cut it to 3/4 cup sugar/splenda. Shaking the biscuit quarters in the bag worked fine, they were totally coated. I increased the baking time to 45 and only a couple of pieces in the middle were slightly undercooked.

Winter Chicken Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2011
I followed other suggestions and added apple juice half way through to keep the chicken moist. I think I poured too much, but it was tender (and I usually find white meat too dry). I also steamed the carrots and sauteed the onions first. I used a more BBQ sauce than called for. The chicken was very bland. The individual tastes were fine, I like all the ingredients, but it tasted like bland chicken with some side dishes.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
Super tasty and moist. It wasn't a strong pumpkin taste, I would have liked a little more. I reduced the sugar to 1 c splenda, 1 c brown sugar. I'll probably do 1.5 c of of those next time. I also used 3/4 c applesauce 1/4 c oil. It was plenty moist, but I do think it makes the texture a bit more spongy than I expected. I'll make again for sure!

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
Just as dense, moist, and delicious as promised. My modifications based on reviews: 3 bananas. Mushed them instead of slicing. Added baking soda right before the oven so it wouldn't fall. Fat free plain yogurt instead of sour cream. Instead of sugar I used half splenda, half brown sugar and put in some cinnamon. Semi-sweet chocolate chips I had in the cabinet instead of nuts. No salt. Took out at 50 minutes.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
Excellent and my husband and I both really like the sauce (that's unusual). I'll use that as my go to sauce from now on. I made the following adjustments based on the reviews and I couldn't be happier: - need a very deep dish, I got a throw away deep dish lasagna 13x9 pan - used the oven ready noodles and only needed 6 to cover the two layers - doubled the ricotta mix!! - added a dash or two of nutmeg to the ricotta mix - used a full pound of ground beef - used red wine instead of water - I don't have a dutch oven, just cooked it in a regular big pot for about 1.5 hrs and the tastes blended quickly - don't forget that if you are buying the italian sausage in links to take the meat out of the casings - didn't add any salt - 3 cloves of garlic (could have easily used 4)
