Party Punch VI

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2014
This punch recipe is just great. It is simple and definitely a crowd pleaser. It is also pretty fool-proof: I just kept adding more fruit punch, soda, and sherbet as the punch got lower in the bowl. I made it for my cousin's baby shower (she was having a girl, so I wanted a pink punch) and it was one of the most raved about menu items.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2014
This is a great apple crisp recipe. I use 6-7 very large Granny Smith apples, which made for a nice tart apple taste to go up against the sweet topping. I find that mixing the apples in a large bowl helps to evenly distribute the cinnamon/sugar/flour mixture before spreading the apples in the pan. I skip the water (per other reviews) and don't miss it at all--the apples release plenty of liquid as they cook. I also roughly double the topping mixture, as my family likes that part the best. This recipe has become a highly requested dessert at family gatherings.

Corn and Black Bean Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2014
The balance of flavors in this recipe seems a little off. I think the vinegar is too strong. Also, the flavors get stronger over time, so for us, it was even worse as a leftover. If I make it again, I'll use less vinegar knowing that the intensity will increase over time.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2013
I use this recipe whenever I need a quick dinner or something to serve to guests for breakfast/brunch. I often substitute white cheddar cheese for the Muenster (based on family preferences). I also use this recipe as a base recipe for other quiches.

Cinnamon Coffee Cake II

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2013
This is a great coffee cake recipe. I followed some of the suggestions posted by other reviewers. I used 2 packages of vanilla pudding and only 3/4 cup of brown sugar. I omitted the nuts (allergies) and they were not missed at all. I accidentally used a cake mix that had pudding in it, but it turned out perfectly. It was incredibly moist. I made it for a work breakfast and it was the first thing completely gone. I had strangers seeking me out to compliment this cake.

Apple Squares

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2014
I made this exactly as written, except I left out the walnuts (I would have added them, but I didn't have any and it's a snowy day here). I was worried because the batter seemed very, very thick and I had difficulty spreading it out in the 9x9 pan. It didn't look like there was enough batter. However, I used my hands to spread it around as much as possible and baked it for about 22 minutes in my gas oven. They puffed up while baking and turned out very moist. This will be a frequently made recipe in my house--we always have the ingredients.

S'more Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2014
I had high hopes for these brownies. I made them for a party, and while they were all gone by the end of the night, I found them too dry. I followed other reviewers' suggestions about adding the topping later in the baking time in hopes of not drying the topping out, but unfortunately, it didn't seem to work. I think the basic premise of these brownies is a great idea, but I won't be using this recipe again.

Almond Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2014
This is such a great recipe. I always have the ingredients on hand and they're very simple to make. Do not overbake these, as the flavor really seems to depend on the moistness of the bars. They are a great holiday bar, but we make them year-round.

Herb Roasted Pork

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2014
This is hands down the BEST pork I have ever made or tasted. It may even be the best thing I've ever made. I use a 2 pound tenderloin and triple the spice rub (just double the garlic). I also use brown sugar and balsamic vinegar in the sauce. I also roast it on a rack, just so air can circulate around the meat. Just be very careful and don't overcook it--nothing worse than dry pork!

Buffalo Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2014
My husband and I loved this recipe. It's a great change from the "typical" chili recipe. It's easy to adjust the heat level--just decrease the hot sauce. We like to eat it like a dip with tortilla chips, especially when it's a day or two old.

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2014
This is a great start for butternut squash soup. I roasted the squash until it was tender (roasting adds much more flavor than boiling it and makes it much easier to cut and peel). I used oregano instead of marjoram just because I didn't have the marjoram and it was a good substitute. I used one package of cream cheese and thought it was very creamy. My husband (who HATES all types of squash) was even impressed by this recipe. If you have an immersion blender, use it! Much easier and faster.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2013
This is the best ham and potato soup recipe I've ever tried. It's a great way to use up leftover ham. I follow the recipe as written, except I don't add any salt. I think the chicken bouillon granules have plenty of salt in them, so it's not necessary to add more salt. I also don't really care for pepper, so I usually skip that, too.
