Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2002
Very good recipe BUT, DO USE A BUNDT PAN. I used a tube pan like one uses for an Angel Food Cake. You should see the bottom of my oven and the racks,looking like baked on Stalactites!!! Instead of the inviting aroma of cinnamon, my house is filled with the stench of burning brown sugar and butter.

Pink Lemonade Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2002
Three Words: OH MY GOODNESS!!! Made this today (half recipe) and between 4 of us there is not one piece left. I did add a slight touch of red food coloring to make it pinker. Wondering if other frozen juices would have the same FABULOUS results? Such as Margarita Mix, Grape Juice, Orange Juice, Guava Juice, etc. I see myself experimenting with this one. Comapny is coming tomorrow and I know this will be on the menu ... Thanks WorkingMom2004 for a great, quick and easy dessert.

Country Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2002
I have made this very quick Bananna Bread several times,always adding chopped pecans or walnuts to the recipe. Today I changed a bit and used a Devils Food cake mix, adding not only the chopped nuts but some chocolate chips, the results are even better than the orginal recipe, I believe ... The best of both worlds, Banana Nut Bread and Chocolate!

Homemade Noodles

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2004
Every couple of months a group of OLD friends get together for a "retro dinner" ... This time dinner was at my house, and Homemade Chicken and Noodles was on the menu along with Cornbread ... Having never made noodles before I was a bit afraid they would turn out like the ones my Grandmother used to make, which were like "anemic rubber bands" ... All I can say, is WOW!!! I WILL NEVER purchase egg noodles in the grocery store again. Craig, you posted the recipe in memory of Elizabeth, I made the noodles this morning with my 96 year old Grandmother's Rolling Pin. Perhaps both of the ladies were with me, while I was making these delicious noodles. Thanks again for submitting the recipe. I cooked for 8 and just quadrupled the recipe, must say I did have to add a couple of extra eggs to get the correct(or what I thought) consistency to roll out ... I wish my Grandmother "had her mind" so she could enjoy the outcome. I doubt she'd be impressed, as her food is pureed these days.

Maple Syrup Casserole Made in Heaven

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2003
I added a few raisins between the layers of bread, and mixed some cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg to the egg-milk-syrup mixture ... This is soooooooooooooo Good! Thanks Dawn for a fabulous recipe, too bad the rating stars only go to 5, cause this one gets a 10 in my book.

Easy Ham and Noodles

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2002
I had leftover ham from Easter Dinner and came across this delicious recipe today. I am a cheese freak, so I added extra sharp chedder cheese and some Dijon Mustard(2 Tbs). Since this was my first time making this particular dish, I have no idea if the added mustard was a plus or a minus ... All I know is this dish was fabulous and I will certainly be making it again, perhaps next time without the Dijon, to see what the difference is like. Thanks for a great dish. Now why didn't I think of this recipe?

Orange Sherbet Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2010
I've been making this 'salad' for years ... Though I drain the Mandarin Oranges and save the liquid, adding this liquid to make the 2 cups of water ... Also, try using Vanilla Ice cream in place of the Orange Sherbet ... The end result is very much like a Half & Half Creamsicle ...

Tamale Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2002
I made this one evening earlier in the week. Very easy and oh so GOOD. Will certainly be making this one again and again. I will add a small (single serving size) can of whole kernel corn next time, think it will add to this excellent dish, may even add some sliced black olives also ...

Easiest Applesauce Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2003
What a GEM of a recipe ...Thanks eagles1955 Beware this makes 2 loaf pans NOT 3 as stated. Made a few minor changes, added 1/4 tsp ground cloves and 1/3 each chopped pecans and raisins, the loaves came out perfect in evey way, very moist and tasty ... If you like this recipe try Country Banana Bread from this site. It uses a yellow cake mix as a base also

Lemon Lush Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2002
This is a great pie and very easy to make. I omitted 1/4 cup milk and added 1/4 cup extra lemon juice, since I prefer a tart pie. Turned out perfect in every way ...

Em and Nic's Apple Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2002
WOW! What a great dish ... Would NEVER have thought to mix these various flavors. Only thing I did different was transfer the chicken and raisins to a dish and thicken the sauce with a bit of corn starch. Also, added 1 peeled, cored and chopped apple to the sauce just as it was beginning to thicken. Certainly a keeper in my book... Thanks for posting this DEE Licious recipe.

Applesauce Custard Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2004
Too bad the star rating only goes to 5, because this one deserves many more!!! Thanks for submitting this DELICIOUS recipe, Cathy. After reading other reviews, I decided to omit a portion of the sugar also, I found 2/3 cup was sufficient and the pie was still plenty sweet. Next time this gem is prepared, I will add some raisins. I did use a mix of cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon in the "batter", which floated to the top as the pie cooked ... Perfect in every way, and "so tasty too" ...

Bailey's Sundae Coffee Drink

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2003
This works well with just about any liqueur. YUMMY with Kahlùa or Frangelico. Bailey's is NOT one of my favorites. To this day, anything that lists 'Irish Cream' has to be skipped ...

Confetti Pies

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2004
Granted the recipe is very easy to prepare, however the cleanup is a total "B" !!! When and if you make this BE SURE to use a very deep bowl, a mixing bowl just doesn't cut it when the pineapple tidbits hit the beaters in the liquid ... I literally have sweetened condensed milk and lemon juice interspursed with Mandarin Orange and Pineapple all over the kitchen ... You know, it does look like confetti on my kitchen curtains and walls !!! After the initial shock of having it fling all over, I called my Mom to come over and hold a LARGE flour sack dish towel while I continued to use the mixer to beat, beat, beat, this time in the laundry tubs ... I do hope all the mess was worth it, the pies are in the fridge chilling and hopefully setting up as I type. All I needed was a: "Lucy, I'm Home", because this fiasco was just like something Lucy and Ethyl would get into ... I'm sure this deserves a 5 star rating, but with the mess I was faced with, lucky to get a 2! Remember DEEP BOWL ...and maybe crushed pineapple After my initial review I came back to "revise" the posting, the pies never did set up .. A total waste of ingriedents and Tide to wash the kitchen curtains.

Peanut Butter-Chili Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2002
I used grilled chicken breasts instead. When I make the sauce I add 1/4-1/2 tsp. coconut extract and extra cayenne pepper(lots), then spoon the sauce over the chicken. If you happen to have coconut milk substitute it for the cup of water, you'll not be disappointed. Yesterday, I made it as the recipe was posted using breasts and it turned out great. Don't be squemish about the various ingredients, this is a FABULOUS entreè. Serve with a Coconut Rice, also from an posting. Reminds me of travels to Singapore for Chicken Satè, except no jet lag!
