Irish Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2001
These are wonderfully easy to to make and taste great! My 5 year old made these all by herself with great ease... it was so much fun to shake the candy in the bag. And these fix up in just minutes. The taste is very sweet - but very good all the same. This recipe is ideal for kids. On note: the recipe says it makes 24 potatoes - yes, if you want teeny sized ones. You can easily make larger potatoes if you like - I would say 12 larger size poatoes would be more like it.

Cranberry, Sausage and Apple Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2001
Excellent, easy, and delicious. I did use the leeks - and three large leeks measured out to the 6 cups. I was worried about the large amount of leeks in the recipe, but they were an excellent addition to the recipe and cooked down considerably. I did use turkey sausage as the recipe submittor suggested. I also used dried cherries instead of cranberries. About 3/4s of a 1-pound loaf of white bread produced 12 cups of bread cubes called for in the recipe, which I toasted briefly in my oven as it preheated. This looked elegant on the table - very impressive. I baked it alone, rather than stuffing my bird, so I used just a bit extra chicken broth.

Hot Cross Buns I

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2001
These were really very nice! I was pleasantly surprised to find a recipe for this Easter treat that I could make in my bread machine. Fancier models of bread machines that have a dough cycle that includes a rising time can omit the rising in the pan described in the original recipe. I also would go ahead and add the currants/raisins and cinnamon with the rest of the ingredients, rather than waiting. The taste is much like very light white bread with a hint of cinnamon and raisins. If you prefer more zip, add the allspice, vanilla, butter extract etc as recommended by a previous reviewer. However, the recipe as it stands is really very good. The buns come out huge and golden - picture perfect.

Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2001
Well, this is a very easy to fix turley recipe and definietly one to try again. However, the time alotted for cooking is definitely way off - I had a 14 1/2 pounder that cooked much, much faster than I expected - my bird was 2 1/2 pounds larger than the recipe called for and was done before 3 1/2 hours were up. I wish I had checked the bird earlier - I never dreamed it would be ready so quickly. This was the first year I had to rush around to get the fixings done on time while the turkey waited. Usually, I'm still waiting for the turkey and my fixings are all sitting on the table! I'd recommend checking your bird after 2 hours and every 1/2 after that until it is done.

Apple, Avocado and Hearts of Palm Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2001
This was OK, but nothing special. The dressing, which is like 1000 Island dressing, was fine, but did not go well with the apples and the Hearts of Palm. The dressing has too much mayo, I think - it was a bit overpowering. However, the dressing was good as a dip for the avocado slices.

Easter Bread Ring

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2000
This is a very good recipe. I did make some changes, however. First of all, I used half of the salt and still had excellent results. Also, I substituted sultanas (golden raisins) for the fruit called for in the recipe. I also omitted the nuts. The resulting loaf was beautiful to look at and makes an excellent Easter morning certerpiece. I do question the safety of letting the braided loaf rise for the second hour because of the raw eggs. Only let mine rise 30 minutes after the inserting the colored raw eggs. Everything turned out great. The bread is very lightly sweet and goes very well with coffee.

Potato Rosemary Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2001
These were just OK, nothing bad but nothing special either. I expected more rosemary flavor. These were surpisingly bland, although very easy to make and beautiful. However, my 6-year old loved them.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2001
This was very good. It is not overly spiced and is quite moist. I baked this recipe in two regular size loaf pans and it turned out fine, although cooked longer (1 hour 20 minutes was the total time baking). I have another recipe that is even better, but this is still a very good recipe.

Mocha Cream Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2000
When prepared as directed in the original recipe, I found the bread came out a little too doughy and the procedure was a bit lengthy. However, the taste of the bread was quite good. You may prefer to use the Sweet Bread setting on your machine rather than using just the dough cycle. Then simply add the chocolate chips at the beep, if your machine has this feature (or after the first kneading). Worth trying again.

Easy Pavlova

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2002
This was such an easy recipe to follow! The pavlova came out delicious and beautiful. I was skeptical of the fast time it took to cok the pavlova - many other recipes call much longer. However, this turned out wonderfully and it goes in to my family recipe box. Thanks for a great recipe!

Baja Stuffed Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2002
I thought these were amazing! There were just a bit spicy, but not overpowering. For children, you could easily use regular Monterey Jack cheese instead of the kind with the hot peppers. These were fairly easy to make and really have a delicious taste. They also look nice when they come out of the oven. Great BBQ fare!

Raspberry White Chocolate Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2001
My family really enjoyed these muffins. They puffed up nicely, although they got a little dark on the sides and bottoms - watch them carefully as they bake and I'd even check them a few minutes earlier than the time given. They are not as sweet as most muffins, but they are light and creamy in texture. I think these would be even better served as a loaf and spread with some sweetened raspberry butter. I added 1 tsp. vanilla but otherwise followed the recipe precisely.

Chicken Riggies II

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2001
This is a delicious dish, even if you substitute half-n-jhalf for the cream. This is rich and elegant enough for a dinner party. I might add some mushrooms next time as well.

Seafood Au Gratin

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2001
I really wanted this recipe to be good - it sure cost enough for the ingredients. There was not enough sauce for the immense amount of seafood called for in this recipe - which was way too much in my opinion. The sauce also didn't have enough flavor to enhance the seafood. I would not make this again.

Pseudo Sourdough for the Bread Machine

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2011
Enjoyable loaf of bread. Like others have already mentioned, despite the title, I detected no hint of sourdough flavor. If you disregard the somewhat misleading recipe title, then the loaf itself works as directed and tastes very good. It has a bright white color with a soft texture and slightly crusty exterior.

Ashley's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2002
This recipe is excellent! The measurements and directions are so precisely accurate - I was thrilled to finally have a cookie that tasted terrific and also came out with a perfect color, texture, and shape. A definite winner!

Romantic Chicken with Artichokes and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2001
I thought this was outstanding! This is a perfect recipe for a romantic meal or for important company. The chicken is very moist and the sauce is excellent. I served this over buttered noodles, which absorbed the delicious sauce. I did make a minor alteration: since I was serving this to children as well as adults, I substituted apple juice for the white wine. I was so surprised at how well this substitution worked and would continue to use the apple juice even if not serving to children.

Diana's Hawaiian Bread Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2001
These rolls are wonderful! The taste is so light and lemony. I have been searching for a lemony yeast roll to compliment seafood dishes, and this will fit the bill perfectly. They are so delcious, even without any butter on them. I used margarine instead of the butter flavor shortening and they came out great. Excellent. I will make these again.

Tortillas I

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2001
While the taste was good, my tortillas came out a little stiff. Also, it was very difficult to roll out the tortillas flat enough. I think a tortilla press would be a great help. A good recipe, but not as easy as I had hoped.
