Sweet Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2002
This pie has a great, simple flavor, reminding me of a light-textured cheesecake. I added just a bit of fresh grated nutmeg. Make sure you use a deep dish pie plate, because the filling is plentiful. This is an easy pie to make!

Apple Cinnamon Turnovers

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2007
Nice sweet breakfast treat using canned biscuits! Here are some hints: Unpeeled apple finely diced worked well. I rolled out one circle at a time, filled it, sealed it, then moved to the next circle--because the dough circles tended to shrink quickly after rolling. Make sure to secure the seal well, so the filling stays in as best as it can. I also added a light drizzle of a buttery confectioner's sugar glaze, once they emerged from the oven. The next time I'll cut the sugar (called for) in half, then add my glaze. That should be just the perfect amount of sweetness with the extra special touch of a wet glaze, too!

Unsweetened Surprise

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2006
Don't be scared by the name--these are plenty sweet! They are the same recipe my Grandma would make each Christmas. They are like a brownie, with the unique topping of a mint frosting layer followed by a thin chocolate glaze. If you like chocolate and mint together, you will probably like these bars! The next time I make these, I will line my pan with foil, because they tend to stick to my greased and floured pan. Make sure they are THOROUGHLY chilled before cutting them, or they won't cut well. They are picture-perfect if you can cut them cleanly.

Meadowwood Tapioca Pudding

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2012
Very good flavor. A full recipe fits perfectly in a 1.5-Quart slow-cooker. I used a heaping 1/2 cup of sugar (granulated sugar subsitute worked well, too). Cooking on High for 1.5 hours worked best, stirring occasionally (2 hours made the pearls pretty mushy). Using 2 egg yolks worked for me, and that's the QTY of yolks in the original video for this recipe. The original also called for 2 Tablespoons of vanilla. I love vanilla, so I use that amount. It will seem SOUPY even after you add the yolks and let it cook for 20-30 minutes - don't worry, because it will set up nicely after it cools and chills. Best tapioca recipe I've ever found..........creamy, yummy comfort food!

This is a tasty recipe which is also simple. It's a great way to use up leftover ham.

Triple Berry Crisp

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2007
This is my staple berry crisp recipe! Frozen berries work well for me (unthawed). I reduced the butter to 1 cup + 2Tbl.. We like more berries per crust ratio, so I double the berries. And par-baking the bottom crust for 7-8 minutes seems to work well. Great flavor!

Cinnamon Coffee Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2007
What a unique frosting flavor! Very good on chocolate cake. Save the step of mashing the instant coffee by dissolving it in a little water or the vanilla. Excellent!!

Buckeye Balls II

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2002
By far, these are the BEST sweet treats of the Christmas season! Living in the "Buckeye State" of Ohio all my life, these have been a staple in our Christmas kitchen. This recipe is nearly identical to the family recipe I'm used to. The nice addition of vanilla is the only difference. It helps if you add the powdered sugar about one cup at a time. That way, you can control how stiff the dough gets; you won't have to worry about adding too much powdered sugar and scrambling to add more peanut butter or other ingredient. Don't try to mix the dough with a spoon, because you'll break or bend it (plus mixing with your hands is fun!) Buckeyes always impress friends and family, and homemade ones are much less expensive than store-bought ones.

Pumpkin Roll I

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2002
Great recipe! I was happy to find a pumpkin roll recipe that didn't require me to beat the egg whites separately and fold them in, as do many jelly-roll recipes. I used a 15x10 jelly roll pan, which worked fine.

Overnight Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
Very good! Mine was baked-up within 30-35 minutes. If you desire a simple glaze, here's my personal favorite: 2 Tbl. softened butter, 1/2 tsp. vanilla, 3/4 cup 10X, and milk (to desired consistency). COOL CAKE SLIGHTLY before you spread the glaze on, or it melts too quickly.

Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2008
WOW! I use the bagged, frozen wings (thawed & drained well). The flour will coat up to 15-20 wings, actually. These bake up well using Reynolds Non-stick foil and baking according to the bag (mine says 375' for 35-45 min). Since I bake mine, I slather some sauce on part of the way through; flip the wings, then add remainder of sauce. These get RAVE reviews from DIE-HARD WING LOVERS!

Frozen Chocolate Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2007
This is a great frozen pie that doesn't involve the thawing, spreading, & layering hassles of making typical ice cream pies. I served it in a chocolate graham shell, and it went as fast as the two other ice cream pies I made. Delicious!

Overnight Blueberry French Toast

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2002
I found this recipe while looking for a way to use up extra fresh blueberries. What an impressive and unique recipe!! I used whole-grain wheat bread. I agree that you can cut back on the cream cheese and be fine. The blueberry sauce would be nice to pour over vanilla ice cream, if you make extra. This recipe is sure to get smiles from guests.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
These are halfway between cake-like and fudge-like. When you are scraping the batter into the pan, you might be thinking "This can't be right," because it doesn't resemble a batter at all - it is very dry at that point. Even without an egg, they turned out FANtastic! The recipe halved well, made in an 8x8 pan, cooked for nearly 25 minutes. You can add 1/4-1/2 tsp. of cinnamon for a little extra something. The frosting is GREAT, but I softened the butter instead of melting it. And if you don't care for nuts, you can sub semi-sweet chips instead. Thanks for a great recipe!

I've made these with just the marinade, not in sandwich form with the capers and mayonnaise.

This dessert hits the spot! If you're looking for a "comfort food" dessert, this is it! I used Lite Cherry Pie Filling, and it turned out fine.

Homemade Cereal

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2007
This is absolutely delicious. If I could give it more stars, I would! I always bump up the vanilla, cinnamon, & nutmeg a bit, and leave out the coconut. The last time I made it, I added bran flake cereal to it, and I am super-satisfied with the results. Here are the measurements I used: 3.5 cups oats, 3.5 cups bran flake cereal, .75 cup wheat germ, & .75 cup wheat bran.....everything else the same. Thanks for sharing this gem of a recipe, Cheryl!
