Burger or Hot Dog Buns

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2014
I halved the recipe and make 8 hotdog buns slightly flattened. Made dough in bread machine then let raise 1 hour. Divided dough into rolls, then flattened and placed nearly touching on oiled sheet pan, covered with towel and let raise another 35 minutes. Baked about 12 minutes rotating pan 1/2 way through. Really good.

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2011
Huge hit with kids and adults. I toasted the almonds which added to the flavor and made them a little crispy to add texture.

Easy Pizza Sauce III

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2011
We loved how easy and tasty this recipe is. We used it in our favorite deep dish pizza recipe. We added 1 tbl dried basil, 1/2 tsp sugar, 1/2 tsp minced onion and a pinch of red pepper flakes.

Insanely Easy Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
We do not normally eat vegetarian but relatives that do were coming for dinner. Everyone loved it. What I did differently: Left out bell pepper. Used 1 can chili beans and 1 can white beans. Sauteed carrots, onions, celery and garlic together. Sauteed mushrooms until browned. Added a can of green beans and used very little cumin because I don't like it. Used ground chipotle chili pepper so the heat was rather high. Put everything in the crock pot on high for 4 hours. Served with cornbread, grated cheese, sour cream and chopped cilantro. Surprising how good this is. Try it.

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
This recipe is a real keeper. My kids (16 & 23) were willing to wait an hour longer for dinner just to have these dinner rolls. The bread maker makes them easy. I didn't let them rise the second time for more than 30 minutes. They bake up in 9 minutes easy.

World's Best Scones! From Scotland to the Savoy to the U.S.

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
Great scones. Decreased baking powder from 4 to 3 tsp. Used vanilla sugar for regular white sugar. 1/3 cup dried cranberries, unsweetened in place of currants and added 1/4 tsp. orange zest. I used my food processor to blend dry ingredients. Cut frozen butter into small cubes and pulsed about 5 times in processor. Added milk and sour cream and pulsed 3-4 times. I mixed in the cranberries by hand as I pulled the dough out onto a floured board and then pinched off the dough to put onto baking sheet. Followed the rest of the directions as written.

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
This recipe is all about comfort. I cut my squash in half length wise, coated it in olive oil, salt and pepper and roasted cut side down on baking sheet at 375 for 45 minutes for a small one and added 15 minutes longer for a large squash. Let cool until easy to handle then scoop out flesh (trying not eat much). I used canned chicken broth. I increased the cayenne to 1/4 tsp and it leaves a nice little after heat. Bring everything up to a simmer then add squash. I used a stick blender to puree soup and when smooth as I wanted it I added 4 oz. room temperature cream cheese cut into cubes. Bring soup back up to simmer then serve. The small amount of cream cheese adds thickness and creaminess without being identifiable. Left overs will have to be thinned as the soup thickens as it cools. Great recipe.

Southern Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2007
What's not to like? Doubled recipe but used only 6 eggs and left out garlic. Better the next day.

Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: May 20, 2007
If you are looking for a quick recipe this is NOT the one. However, it is delicious and very much like my grandmother's. No wonder grandma was in the kitchen so much. I used 1/2 cup shortening and 1/2 butter in the crust. I used my food processor to sift and blend with the shortening then to add the egg and water. I used my plastic dough blade but a regular metal blade should work fine too. I let the processor run as I poured the egg/water mixture in. I did not use all of the liquid as the dough seemed a little sticky. I turned it out onto plastic wrap and chilled as called for. I used more than 1/2 the dough for the bottom crust. The top crust I rolled out, not too thin onto plastic wrap, and used a round biscuit cutter to place rounds over the top of the peaches. Then I filled in the larger spaces with partial rounds of dough. I liked the rustic look. I sprinkled sugar over the top as the recipe stated but sprayed that with cooking spray instead of melted butter. (I couldn't stand to dirty one more dish.)I used 1/2 cup orange juice and 2 tablespoon of cornstarch. I poured the peaches right into the baked crust just as it came out of the oven so there would be no time for it to get soggy.

Scrumptious Strawberry Shortcake

Reviewed: May 9, 2007
Crumbly and soft the way my grandmother used to make 'em. I used 1/2 tsp. cream of tartar. I think 1/2 thickness is not thick enough. 3/4 to 1 inch would be better. I used a round biscuit cutter and got 15 cakes. Prep time isn't 25 minutes, more like 15. I used same temperature, 350, but used convection and baked 15 min. Perfect.

My Crab Cakes

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2006
As other cooks have stated: this recipe has way too much filliing. Too much cracker crumbs and bread crumbs. I used more crab than the recipe called for and that is the only thing that made it worth eating. I'm sure there are better recipes out there.

Herb Rubbed Sirloin Tip Roast

Wow. I was surprised at how good this was. The meat was tender and flavorful. Easy and little clean up.

Chicken Enchiladas I

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2005
I used a whole roasted chicken instead of breasts. I cut the tomato sauce down to 10oz. I think 15oz would have been too much. I omitted the green pepper as we don't like it and used 7" flour tortillas. It made 8 enchiladas. I used Trader Joes Hot & Smokey Salsa (our favorite) for the taco sauce. I also cooked the onions in a tablespoon of oil before adding the chicken. I garnished with fresh chopped cilantro.

Thighs on Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2005
I'd give this no stars if it were an option. Don't bother with this recipe unless you like bland chicken and ordinary rice.

Brisket with BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2005
I made the sauce only and it was terrific. Followed the recipe to the letter only I didn’t measure anything, just eyeballed it. We put this sauce on pork ribs and the result was great.

New Red Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2005
If what you want is old fashioned potato salad then this is the recipe for you. I made just a couple changes. I used apple cider vinegar and I added 1 tablespoon yellow mustard. I took off whatever potato skin came off easily and left the rest.

Baked Beans III

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2005
I made this recipe in a cast iron skillet. I used 3 strips of bacon, ¼ cup onion and ½ cup lightly packed brown sugar. I layered them in that order in the skillet and put over low heat. When all the sugar was melted I stirred the mixture and let it cook very slowly for a total of about 20 minutes. Then stir in the canned beans and 1 tsp. of dry mustard. The whole thing goes into the oven for 30 minutes. The onions weren't even detected by my onion hating daughter. Beware, this is very rich.

Ham Spread

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2005
Easy. I did the whole thing in the food processor starting with the onions. I used a bit more than 1/4 cup mayonnaise in place of the Miracle Whip. I also used twice the amount of relish (sweet) and yellow mustard. 4 stars because it's easy but not THE BEST ham spread I've ever had.

Crispy Orange Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2005
Ugh. This recipe is a pain! The flavor is just ok. I rarely say take out is better but in this case take out rules. The end result is mediocre at best and when you add up the time and effort it takes to make it you'll wish you had called your favorite Chinese place for delivery.
