Poppy Seed and Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2005
Very good. I added vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Made them a bit sweeter and had great flavor. Next time I think I'll add some raisins.

Chocolate Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2005
I made as directed and didn't follow reviewer suggestions and found it to be very blah. So, next time I'll try it by following reviewer suggestions of adding corn syrup and milk and maybe some butter. But then it wouldn't be the same recipe!

Peanut Butter and Jelly Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2005
So good. I used a large chocolate cookie crust instead of the graham cracker crust and it was VERY good but VERY rich. I also used seedless raspberry jam to compliment the chocolate crust and it really was quite good. The texture on this one is excellent too.

Norwegian Lefse

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2004
This is the real deal. It is important to make sure the potatoes are cold before adding the flour and other ingredients and be sure to keep the uncooked lefsa cold before rolling out. I also use bread flour - the lefse turns out much more tender. Lefse can also be frozen too.

Banana Oatmeal Cookie

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2004
I used half sugar and half brown sugar and they turned out very well. I also used butter flavored shortening as well and didn't use nuts as some in the group I allergic. But they turned out well.

Poor Man's Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2004
This is really very easy and tasty. I like how light the frosting turned out. And I am sure I can tinker with it by adding different flavorings as well as perhaps unsweetened cocoa powder the next time I make it. I think the trick is to make sure you whip the butter and sugar together really well. Using super fine sugar or food processing regular sugar would help too.

Fig Spice Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2004
I really liked this cake. I made it once with just white sugar. Then I made it a second time and used half white and half brown. Excellent both ways! The buttermilk really makes the difference too. I used pecans instead of walnuts too. Just as good.

Ricotta Cheese Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2004
I made one version with non fat and one with full fat ricotta cheese. Hands down the full fat version was better! But I did use whole wheat flour. I didn't have any egg substitute so I used two egg whites instead, whipping first and folding in. Very light and fluffy pancakes. I'll make again.

Poke Cake II

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2004
I too have made this many times and done lots of experimenting. I've used sugar free jello and light topping, also have used Jello pudding for topping - topped with whipped topping. If you have the time, it is good to make home made pudding and whip real cream for a topping. You can also add extras like real fruit, coconut, even chocolate chips etc. to gild the lilly. Fun to experiment for sure!

Pork and Bean Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2004
Excellent. I didn't change a thing. The next time I make it, I might try a low fat version of substituting half the oil with pumpkin or prunes or applesauce and maybe using egg substitute or egg whites for the eggs . . . but then why mess with a GREAT thing?

Orange Gelatin Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2004
This didn't look too pretty but tasted really good. It didn't say to dilute the jello but I assumed you would make it according to package directions. I added the package directions hint of substituting part of the water with soda (I used diet orange and sugar free jello for my diabetic dad) and it was very tasty. I think the next time I make it I will blend the cottage cheese with the partially set jello then add the fruit and whipped topping. I might add some nuts and maybe coconut next time too.

Apple Oatmeal Crisp

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2004
Simple and yummy but I did make a few changes. I added a bit of vanilla and cut the brown and white sugar by about a quarter. I also squeezed a bit of lemon juice on the apples too. I used pink lady apples - a tart but kinda sweet apple that worked really well. I think the next time I make it I will add some raisins or maybe cranberries.

Hawaiian Bread I

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2004
Great even though I didn't have a bread machine. I substituted whole wheat bread flour (and subtracted 3 Tablespoons of the flour and added 3 Tablespoons vital wheat gluten instead) and it still turned out a very tender crumb. I did let it raise twice because I didn't use fast acting yeast but I bet you can get away with one raising if you did.

Hawaiian Sweet Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2003
This is a very easy bread to make. It wasn't as sweet as I thought it would be but quite tender and a really good flavor. The lemon extract is a good addition. I think the next time I make it (and I will make it again) I will increase the sugar - maybe double it and experiment with orange or pineapple extract in place of the lemon.

Homemade Wonderful Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2003
Easy bread. I don't have a bread machine so used the allrecipes site advice on coverting bread machine recipes to regular methods. (You will find it under baking advice.) Definately need to up the water by 1/4 cup and I like a sweeter bread so upped the sugar to 1/3 cup. I also used dry buttermilk powder instead of just dry milk. Really good!

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2003
I used two tablespoons of the flour for cornstarch. They turned out great. I also used unsalted butter even though it doesn't call for it. Best to chill the dough for sure and really don't over do it with the preserves - it will go all over if you over fill. 1/2 cup is plenty for the recipe. The hole you make for the preserves should be small but deep but not so deep it touches the bottom of the cookie sheet. Fill that with preserves but don't let it mound up at all with jam or you'll be cleaning that off your cookie sheet and oven probably. I used the end (cleaned) of a chap stick tube like another reviewer suggested and that worked well.

Amaretto Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2003
Yup, this certainly does deserve five stars. I dusted mine with a bit of powdered sugar for looks. Especially nice to do during Christmas.

Pepparkakor II

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2003
This recipe made a lot of cookies for me. I didn't roll them out and broke the rules! I rolled them into balls and then flattened with a cookie press dipped in sugar. I baked them for about the same length of time though and they turned out great. My Swedish grandfather might not have approved but everyone at work loved them! Fresh orange juice and fresh zest is key to these cookies.

Taste of Home's Morning Glory Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2003
For added moistness I soaked the raisins in the reserved pineapple juice for about 15 minutes. I strained the raisins, saving the juice. I used the pineapple juice and made a powdered sugar glaze for the muffins. Little sweater, little less healthy, but really good.

Cod with Italian Crumb Topping

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2003
This is a tasty and quick dish. I added a bit more Italian seasoning and used fresh garlic. I also used a whole egg. A little less healthy but very tasty.
