No-Sugar-Added Blueberry and Banana Wheat Muffins

Reviewed: May 24, 2011
LOVE THESE. They definitely made 12 largish muffins that needed a bit more time in the oven, but they were really delicious. I added a shot of vanilla & some grated carrot but I think even without those add-ons it would have been great. They're not really sweet but very tasty topped with butter. My diabetic grandmother is going to love these:)

Pumpkin Cake III

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2011
Very good cake. The only change I made was that I used 2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice instead of cinnamon. Everything else I kept the same & it turned out great. Used Cream Cheese Frosting II (by JJ) from this site. This cake was VERY moist & flavorful

Couldn't get simpler. SO GOOD. Add a couple drops of red food coloring to give it that Retro look. SO SO GOOD

Hogs and Kisses

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2011
Addictingly good! I actually snapped the bacon into bite-size pieces before throwing them into the bowl of melted chocolate. If the chocolate is too thick, add a splash of milk. I also baked my bacon over a rack placed over a foil lined baking sheet until really crispy. I put them onto a paper towel to soak up the rest of the grease & waited for them to cool before throwing them into the bowl of melted chocolate.

Cream Cheese Kolacky

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2011
Very tender & delicious. I made them into balls & then thumbprinted them instead of rolling them out & only got 12 (large-ish) cookies. If I had made mine smaller, I could maybe get 24 but they would be tiny. I also used powered sugar to roll them in instead of flour.

Lemon Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2011
Super easy & delicious. I usually end up adding more lemon & lots and lots of black pepper. Very good.

Toads in the Hole I

Reviewed: May 9, 2011
Very good & SO EASY! Very versatile depending on what kind of sausage you have on hand. I used maple, apple chicken sausage. I did make some minor changes. I put the pan (small round metal pan) with some fat rendered from the sausage in the oven to get hot, then I put in the sausages topped with the batter.

Basic Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2011
5++ stars (even before my addition)- I added a TBL of pumpkin puree that added a hint of flavor & pretty color which turned out great since I used this for the Pumpkin Cake III recipe on this site.

Green Tomato Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2011
Super moist & delicious! Some people guessed that I had put apple in it too (it does resemble an apple cake) but I didn't. I followed the recipe to the letter & was not disappointed. Next time I might put a little less sugar.

Buttermilk Oatmeal Muffins

Reviewed: May 29, 2011
Very moist & tasty. Very good recipe to work of off. I reduced the sugar to 1/4 or 1/3 & omitted the oil altogether. I also added some vanilla, shredded apple & carrot, cinnamon & ginger, also some ground flax seeds & replaced some of the white flour with wheat. Very good!

Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2011
It tastes VERY good but it doesn't hold its shape too well unless just out of the refrigerator. It does say that it's ideal for "frosting & borders" which it's great for so I gave it 5 stars + it's delicious. I agree with the others that you can sub. some of the shortening with butter (unsalted) and if you don't have cream you can sub. whole milk or half & half. It does taste pretty awesome, so if you're using it for a simple cake (or like we did, on a cookie "cake") it'll work perfectly & be yummy. It is definitely not a good "glue" nor stable enough for more intricate designs & detail.

Spinach and Rice (Spanakorizo)

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2011
I added scallions & used frozen spinach. Very tasty dish! This is a staple in our household, not just a side dish. Sprinkle it with some great high quality feta to finish. As another reviewer mentioned, the cooking method could have been better & made this 5 stars. Saute' your rice with the onions & then add the tomato sauce, hot broth/water, spinach & other ingredients. Remember to rinse your dry rice to get rid of some of that extra starch too.

Pear Pie III

Reviewed: May 29, 2011
Very very good pie! I did change the butter/sugar amount because a whole cup of sugar would have been much too sweet. I only put in 1/3 cup sugar & 1/3 cup butter. I also sliced the pears & added blueberries & some cinnamon. Then I sprinkled the top of the pie with some sugar before baking. It was so good! You can really taste the fruit & the custard is really light and delicious. I will definitely be making this again and again! I'm sure you can add a number of fresh fruits to make it different each time. Very good with those minor changes

Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2011
It was pretty good, very heavy - fairly good beer batter. I used shredded carrot instead of cabbage & used flour tortillas. I would make this again with the changes I made.
