Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2002
Out of this recipe, I ended up making a dozen Pumpkin muffins and a Pumpkin loaf as well. It is simply scrumptious!! I read all the reviews and took all the suggestions that were offered that were similar. Below is how I ended up re-writing the recipe - it turned out moist, spicy, and DELICIOUS!! My family has already asked me to make this at Christmas!! 15 Oz Can Pumpkin; 4 Eggs; 1/2 Cup Veg. Oil; 1/2 Cup Applesauce (I used sweetened); 2 Cups Sugar; 3 1/2 Cups Flour; 2 Tsp. Baking Soda; 1 1/2 Tsp Salt; 1 Tsp. Cinnamon; Splash of Vanilla; 1/4 Tsp Pumpkin Spice; 1 Cup Walnuts; 1/2 Cup Raisins; 1 Tsp Nutmeg; 1/2 Tsp Cloves; 1/4 Tsp Ground Ginger; Blended and cooked as described in original recipe.. Both placed in the oven at the same time, the Muffins were done in 40 minutes and Bread was done in 1 hr 10 minutes. While on Cooling rack, poked holes in top of muffins and bread, and poured seperate hot Cinnamon Sugar Butter combo over holes, allowing it to seep down inside. Yummmmmmmmy! Will make again and again! Thanks for all the tips everyone!

Sausage Balls

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2002
These sausage balls were so good. With 6 children, I don't cook spicy for them, but I did add a bit of black pepper and some dried chives to add some flavor. However, I had to change the baking a bit. The first batch I made came out SOO greasy (of course using uncooked sausage), even after laying them on a paper towel to drain and cool. I took my cooling rack and placed it on a cookie sheet, then put the unbaked sausage balls on that. When they cooked, the grease dripped down through the cooling rack into the pan below. Because of the drippings, you will need to get a spatula to get them off the rack, but cooking them this way they have yet to burn!! I cooked them for 25 minutes or so instead of 10 minutes like the recipe says. After cooking them like this, my husband tasted them and said they were the best tasting sausage balls he had ever had. My children ate them as fast as I was making them!! I will be cooking them this way from now on. We had these for Thanksgiving appetizers this morning!! :)

Chicken Broth in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2002
I made many batches of this wonderful broth when the recipe was posted. I filled 1/2 gallon size freezer bags with the strained broth and put them in the freezer. This fall, I have already made two WONDERFUL home-made 'chicken noodle' and 'chicken, vegtable and rice' soups in the crock pot, with this broth as my base. I can't wait to make more for the freezer and upcoming winter months!!

Seven Layer Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2002
Absolutely wonderful. Have passed this recipe on to others, by request!! I always have to make a second batch of the mayonaise and sugar mixture, but other than that, it is a hit at our house!!

Blue Ribbon Overnight Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2002
Light, fluffy, easy, delicious ~ and YUMMY! Couldn't ask for an easier recipe. You can cook them immediately, but I prefer to let them sit overnight as the recipe calls. They seem to come out fluffier. (not to mention the smell of fresh bread dough is simply wonderful on a cool fall morning!!)

Swedish Meatballs I

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2002
I followed Beanhead's idea below. It was SO yummy and tasty! My husband was so impressed, he wants to have that specific recipe at least 3 times a month!! My children ate it up. Main thing is to make sure you are using EVAPORATED and not CONDENSED milk. Was VERY yummy! Thanks Beanhead!

Meatball Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2010
Very tasty. A few "on hand" changes. I added italian seasoning along with the other spices. I substituted the macaroni noodles for Farfalle, and instead of tomato sauce I used 2 cans of tomato soup with the water directions (one can of water per). I sauted the onion, garlic and celery together, and I also added chopped mushrooms to the sautee. Then I cooked the noodles separately as I put all the remaining ingredients in the pot along with 2 tbsp of tomato paste, as my hubby loves thicker stews instead of brothy soups. Turned out thick and yummy! Too thick almost, had to add a touch more water during the last minutes of stirring after adding the farfalle. :)

Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2003
Made this as a side dish tonight. Was very delicious!! I was cooking for a family of 8 and two guests and was dissappointed to know that I only had 2 cans of french style green beans. Next time I will use 3 cans of french style green beans and the 1 can of cream of mushroom soup and the french fried onion topping (I only used as much as I wanted, not the whole can, which is how I read the recipe). The children gobbled it up! Yummmmmy!

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2002
Great flavor. After following all directions to a T except using all but 1/3 of the milk called for, and not kneading them as the recipe calls for, they still did not rise when baked. I let them sit for a while before baking as well. Wonder what happened? Will try again though, as the flavor is superb.

Holiday Onions

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2003
Made this tonight for our family and guests. It turned out very very good. However upon reading previous review, of it being bland, before adding cheese sauce, I put salt and pepper on the onions, and then after I put the cheese sauce and paprika on, I sprinkled chives on the top. I will probably make double the cheese sauce next time, just to add more substance. Not using as many onions next time (I don't have a food scale so I over guesstimated the 3 lbs of onions), this is a very good side dish!!!

Best Ever Popcorn Balls

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2005
Tasted great, but mine were flat globs of goo. I used the butter on my hands to make them not stick to my hands, and even when I got them into semi ball shape, once I put them in the surran wrap and tied them up, the next day the bottom of the individually wrapped popcorn balls had a gooey mess in them, as the filler pooled at the bottom. Very tasty, but do not stick together at all. May try again sometime when I have some assistance to help me with the mess.

No Bake Cookies III

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2002

Vivian's Delight

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2005
Love it. Just as I imagined it would be. My children gobbled it up. Made it for Thanksgiving this year. I used one 3oz box of Strawberry gelitan because our store doesn't sell the 1oz boxes. Used an entire can (15 1/4oz) of Dole pineapple chunks (I chopped them up smaller), and that added awesome sweetness to it. Will make it again for sure, and will experiment next time with other flavors. My friend puts marshmallows in hers. Had to pass this recipe out, was a true hit!!

Cajun Appetizer Meatballs

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2003
This is a recipe the whole family enjoyed. I used apricot preserves instead of peach and I didn't have any Worchestire sauce on hand so I used steak sauce. YUMMY! Served meatballs over white buttered rice, and was so good. My 2 year old tasted the sweetntangy sauce and asked where the chicken was to dip in it. The sauce tastes better than the sweet n sour sauce from our chinese restaurant! :) Will make again for sure but will definitely add the hot sauce to it, there was no kick to it at all without it.

Chocolate Brittle Surprise

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2003
REALLY sweet. Mine turned out a bit soupy, but were definitely eaten until gone. We just used unsalted saltine crackers, as we don't use soda crackers very often.

Simple Garlic and Basil Pesto

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
I didn't use chili powder or the brazil/pine nuts or parmesan cheese in my version. I did use everything else, PLUS I added sun-dried tomatoes and ground black pepper and simple ground peanuts surprisingly enough, because I had no other nuts available. Oh it was so tasty... I put it over Penne pasta and the family ate it up! :)

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2010
I used 1 1/2 c banana and 1 cup of applesauce. Then I added a half a cup of chopped walnuts and a tsp of vanilla extract. Everything else was the same. Very dense but right out of the oven with melted butter.. YUMMY!!! Then again I enjoy bread, not fluffy pastries when it comes to this type of bread. :)
