Cube Steak Parmesan

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2005
Can I say Yum. I did change a few things, didn't have crackers, so breaded it flour/garlic salt combo, egg and then italian seasoned bread crumbs which works well with the recipe anyways. As per another reviewer, when baking the already fried steaks, I put them in a baking dish sprayed with pam, and poured store bought spaghetti sauce over the top, covered with foil and baked for 20 minutes. Placed thick slices of mozzarella on top of the sauce and baked for 10 minutes longer, served on top of spaghettini...very good and fairly easy.

Bacon Baked Beans

Reviewed: May 25, 2008
I bought a jumbo size can of pork and beans instead of two smaller ones, and followed the rest of the recipe, except I ran out of ketchup so I used half ketchup half bbq sauce. Brought these to a family gathering and everyone raved about these beans, I would definitely make them again.

Banana Fritters

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2005
Great snack, easy to make. I used far less than 2 qts. of oil. They came out like banana fritter donut holes. My husband couldn't stop eating them. If you don't have ripe bananas on hand, pop the top on an underripe banana and nuke it for 15-20 seconds or so, they mash right up.

Potato and Bean Enchiladas

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2006
Good flavor, but would not make again as per recipe. If I make it again, I would definitely add sauce to the potato/bean mixture because the insides were dry. And I would also change the cheese to a cheddar/jack combo or mexican four cheese blend, or something. The queso fresco didn't have a good melting quality to it. But I liked the flavors, thanks for the recipe.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2006
I don't really like changing the recipe and then rating it, but I think this recipe allows room for changes. I had a 29 oz. can of pumpkin pie filling so I used that and doubled the recipe without doubling the amount of sugar (1 cup white/2 cups brown) and using 1 cup oil, 1 cup cinnamon applesauce. Also didn't have cloves or ginger. Very good, moist, flavorful bread. Made three regular loaves and three small loaves in those aluminum tins. Thanks for the recipe! **I made this again and acutally followed the recipe - I liked it better the first time around with my alterations**

Mock Lemon Chiffon Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2007
The taste is what saved this cake for me. 1st, make sure you read ALL the steps (i didn't read ahead, just followed the steps in order), my first mistake was mixing both boxes of pudding in with the cake mix (I used lemon cake, mayo). When I got to the 2nd step for the filling, I was like what pudding? Anyways I went to the store and got another box of lemon pudding for the whipped topping filling. So the cake wound up having an extra box of pudding in it. The filling was so runny that it would not set up and the cakes were sliding around. It wound up looking like an avalanche. But it was delicious. If I were to make it again I would fill it differently, maybe use real whipped cream instead of whipped topping or a whipped cream/cream cheese combo with the lemon pudding. But the lemon/strawberry combo is very good and the actual cake itself was dense and moist and really good.

Cuban Midnight Sandwich

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2005
Very good, and easy to prepare on a busy night. I cut the sauce ingredients (mayo, italian dressing) in half and thought that was plenty. Also just mixed in half the amount of mustard with the sauce and spread it on all at once.

Grilled Garlic Artichokes

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
I really enjoyed this. Made as per recipe (halved) and it was delicious. I didn't have any leftover oil mix for dipping, but the flavor of the artichoke and garlic was good on it's own.

Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2009
I used regular cream cheese, followed recipe and it turned out really good. It was light and fluffy, yet sturdy enough to ice a three tier cake with. I really loved the flavor of it and will definitely make this again. Thanks!

Granny's Smothered Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2004
Good flavor and fairly easy to prepare. I didn't have cloves, and it tasted fine. Very "homestyle" looking. Only thing, recipe does not provide a measurement for the potato water so be careful you don't add too much. I think I added too much, but I took some of the water out and mixed it with a packaged chicken gravy mix and put it back into the pan. Yummy.

Caramel Corn IV

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2010
sorry but have to say it - the most popular reviewer is probably scaring people off. this was easy, and i used only one saucepan. poured the bag of microwave popcorn onto a pam sprayed parchment paper lined cookie sheet, poured the caramel mixture over the top, added some sliced almonds and sea salt, baked 25 min at 275 and stirred every 5 minutes. it's awesome. my dad just said its the best he's ever had. will def make again!

Corn Chowder - Fast and Great

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2006
I guess I should have read the reviews first and I would have added less stock and another can of creamed corn. For me, this was too thin to be called a chowder. I got a tip from a co-worker though, that will be good on the leftovers...add instant mashed potatoes until the desired consistency is achieved. I think that will help. Overall good flavor though. Will probably make again with the noted changes.

Gramma Bertha's Banana Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2005
Very good, and fairly quick. I added a little vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg to the batter. Watch the cooking time, I checked 10 minutes early and it could have come out 15 minutes early I'm sure. Frosted it with cream cheese frosting.

Chocolate Zucchini Bread I

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2009
Made this as per recipe, made one loaf and twelve muffins. The loaf stuck to the bottom of the pan despite being well-greased. The muffins came out perfect though and when I make this recipe again, I will make all muffins. Very good flavor, everyone really loved the muffins.

Chili Dog Casserole II

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2007
I was skeptical, but these were actually pretty good...I did add a slice of american cheese inside with the hot dog, but other than that followed the recipe. I will probably make this again.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2007
Very good recipe that allows the room to experiment with your favorite fruits in addition to the fruits called for. I added banana and after chopping the banana and apples added the juice from one lemon before preparing the rest of the fruit. The leftovers were awesome blended with ice for a smoothie. My 1-year old loved the chips and I will likely make them without the salsa often.

Cream Filled Cupcakes

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2004
My seven year old daughter made this all by herself and won a blue ribbon at the Monterey County Fair for her age group. I must admit a 7 year old weilding a pastry bag was a little messy but these cupcakes were delish. They don't even need icing, we just piped a little dab of extra cream filling onto the top of each cupcake.

Mini Cheesecakes I

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2006
Very good frosting that still has the tang of cream cheese to balance out the sweetness of whatever you're frosting. I found the amount to be perfect to frost a two layer 9" round cake.

Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2004
Delicious and super easy. Tons of leftovers, you may want to half the recipe, I made it in a bundt pan and it filled the whole thing. I wrapped the leftovers in foil and left it out over night, popped it in the oven the next morning and it tasted just as good.
