Fresh Peach Cobbler II

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2012
My husband bought a lug of Colorado peaches especially so he could have peach cobbler. Putting the peaches in the oven while fixing the dough works well. I used a slightly larger Pyrex dish to bake in and used a little over 4 cups of peaches, but kept the rest of the ingredients. Instead of cutting the stortening into the dough, I grated (large hole side) 1/3 cup of frozen butter, which made it easier to mix. Also added a little nutmeg to the dough. Plenty of dough for the extra peaches. So easy and so good.

Tres Leches (Milk Cake)

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2010
I love to take this to potlucks. Everyone is convinced that it must be hard to make. My only problem is that at every step I think that I must have screwed up. The cake batter is very thick -it's okay. The cake bakes to almost overbaked - it's okay. There is almost a quart of milk mixture - it's okay. I do cheat and skip the heavy whipping cream and just use extra creamy Cool Whip. The only issue I have is that it doesn't really keep long. I usually make it the day before and "frost" it just before I need to serve. I think it lasts in the fridge about 3-4 days afterwards.

Hot Chocolate Mix II

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2009
One recipe makes a large batch. I ended up adding 2 regular sized instant chocolate puddings that several people mentioned. And since I couldn't find a 16 oz container of chocolate mix, I used the whole 30 oz container that I did get. (After testing it first with just amount in recipe) DH said it still needed a little more. So I added about 1/4 dark chocolate cocoa, but I am not sure that it made a huge difference. I would like to try it next time with flavored creamer, or add cinnamon. I think it makes a good mix and hope my friends like it too.

Autumn Apple Salad II

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2008
SUPER EASY! And tasty.I have upped the amount for a couple different potlucks. Always a HUGE hit. Especially for the college meal that my church did. Great for those last minute potluck. The last time I made it (doubled), the apples were crazy expensive so I did 4 apples and 4 pears. Also did one container of vanilla and one container of caramel.

Lazy Man's Barbecue Pork Sandwiches

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2008
This is one of my go-to recipes. The only tweak is that I add a tablespoon or two of liquid smoke. Especially good for days that I don't want to mess around with meals. I've made it for potlucks and for a couple moving day parties. I don't make the barbecue sauce since I have a brand that I like really well. I only add a little sauce to the end product and let everyone else put on more if they want.

America's Favorite Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2008
Simple. Plus a great recipe for camping. A week before we go camping, I put my pork chops in a self-seal baggie and add the marinade, then throw it in the freezer. When I pack up my cooler, the frozen chops help keep the rest of the stuff cool and while they are defrosting, they marinate. Usually they are ready to go by the second night for supper.

Just Peachy Peanutty Pork

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2008
Little more labor than I was expecting. I did like the end product. The combination of flavors sound odd, but taste great. He doesn't like coconut and liked these. Actually just served them with barbecue sauce mixed with perserves as a dip.

Southwestern Pork Medallions with Cinnamon Couscous and Peach Chutney

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2008
One of my favorites. I have made it with tenderloin and thinner cut boneless pork chops. I make the chutney the day ahead to allow the flavors to mingle. Otherwise very quick and only the name sounds involved. A tasty way to introduce coucous to someone.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2007
So yummy. I made the first batch basically according to the recipe. I added a little bit extra cinnamon over the apples and an extra tablespoon of butter to the topping. Perfect amount of topping as is. Served with cinnamon ice cream. The second batch was for an office potluck brunch. Added the extra cinnamon and a bit of nutmeg and about 1/4 teaspoon cloves. Everyone raved.

Challah I

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2004
Another challah recipe that I love. Such an easy recipe. I love that it is so light. I made the recipe into 4 smaller loaves for the holidays for my co-workers. The loaves were still the size of most loaves of plain bread in the grocery store. I also made a batch for one of my co-workers to take home for her big family gathering. I ran out of white flour and used 2 cups of wheat. Not trational, but really good.

Applesauce Cinnamon Gelatin Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2003
One of my family favorites from childhood. The texture from the applesauce makes it something different. I think I used about 1 1/4 cup water and it turned out fine. I have done it with cherry jello, but the lemon jello is used to give it a bit of punch to cover the sweetness of the candies. Not for everyone, but a nice change of pace for those who want something different for their next gathering. Serve with casseroles that have cream sauces or with ham dinners.

Banana Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2002
I really like this recipe. It is my most frequently requested quick bread (without the raisins). I also play with the flour, using half whole wheat and sometimes a 1/4 cup wheat germ. Great especially for giving your kitchen that perfect fall smell as it bakes. A great moist on-the-go breakfast. Also have taken half slices and spread a soft cream cheese frosting to make "cookie sandwiches" as a special treat. The only thing is that it takes about 60 minutes to bake in my oven. Otherwise, it is terrific.
