Chewy Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2012
These brownies delivered on being moist and chewy, but didn't have the deep chocolate flavor I was hoping for. I replaced 1/2 c oil with 1/2 c melted butter and added 1/2 tsp instant espresso to accentuate the chocolate, but still felt the recipe needs more kick. I will definitely make these again but may add some melted semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate to the wet ingredients to give them more depth.

Apple Oatmeal Cookies II

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2012
This is a tasty cookie and I don't even have a problem letting the kids have a couple for breakfast. I added some toasted walnuts and although I chopped the apples this time, I would shred them like other reviewers have mentioned. The sweetness was perfect for our household!

Dutch Apple Pie with Oatmeal Streusel

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2005
I only bake pies once or twice a year, but I like to make many of the same kind at once. Having said that, I found a few things with my second batch of pies that I would like to share. The crust does indeed go soggy and tends not to bake at the bottom, so for the second batch of 3 pies, I first brushed the frozen pie shells with lightly beaten egg whites before filling (it acts as a barrier and prevents the sogginess) and I also baked the pies at the lowest rack setting of my oven for 20 minutes at 425 degrees. Once I lowered the oven temperature to 375 degrees, I placed the pies back on the middle rack. I also used three LEVEL tablespoons of flour in the filling...I found the three heaping tablespoons recommended by other reviewers to be too pasty and two tablespoons to be too runny. I didn't have any problems with the apples not cooking through, but I sliced them very thinly because the lower sugar/water content in granny smiths tends to make them hold their shape and stay firm otherwise. It is a very good recipe and definitely worth a try.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2004
These cookies are DELICIOUS! The recipe is easily halved and I suspect the posted recipe may actually be a double recipe, based on the number of cookies it makes! I actually did not have time to finish baking the entire batch so I scooped out the dough with a half-filled ice cream scoop and froze the little mounds on a wax-lined cookie sheet. WHAT A PLEASANT SURPRISE! Our family thought the cookies made from the previously-frozen dough tasted better than the original ones!

Easy Manicotti Florentine

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2004
A big thank you to VBGrace and his/her review! I've made this recipe several times and always thought stuffing the shells was tedious until I read the suggestion to use a resealable plastic bag to pipe the filling into the shells. This is a real timesaver and if you measure the corner of the bag into the shells first (I discovered different brands are different sizes), you'll know exactly how much of the bag to snip off. I also alter the recipe a bit by adding 1 beaten egg, 2 cloves of minced garlic and 1/4 cup of parmesan and a touch of nutmeg. I always end up doubling the recipe for the filling because there is never enough to fill all the shells.

Marinated Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2003
This recipe was simple to prepare, but did not wow anyone in my family. If I make these again, I would cut down the oil because there was a lot left in the bottom of the pan even though I used lean pork chops. The sauce almost needs something else. Maybe some sliced onions baked on top of the chops would make this recipe better.

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2003
This recipe is a delicious potluck dish and tastes even better the next day. I like to make it in a round casserole dish and cut into it just like a pie! If you're entertaining, try making it directly in a springform pan ( you may have to trim the edges of the tortillas to make them fit) and lift the ring just before serving.

Pumpkin Cheesecake in a Gingersnap Crust

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2003
This cheesecake has been our dessert for the past three Thanksgiving dinners! Like others, I also use ground pecans in place of the hazelnuts, but I also find that a spicy gingersnap makes for a better crust. (Try Christie's Midget Snaps) This also makes great idividual cheesecakes....just place a ginger snap in the bottom of a muffin tin lined with a paper liner and pour on the filling!

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2003
I have made this pie four times in the past three weeks and always had good results. Like previous reviewers, I also added a tsp of cinnamon to the caramel mixture just for that touch of spice. I add the flour gradually to the butter and found that using a small whisk eliminates any lumps of flour. Granny Smiths really are the perfect apple for this pie, but I would recommend slicing them VERY thinly so that they are not still crunchy at the end of the suggested baking time. This is not an ideal pie for all those a la mode fans.....too much yummy caramel!

Slow-Cooker Barbecue Ribs

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2002
This rib recipe convinced my dinner guest that he needs a slow cooker! I substituted the 2 cup equivalent of my favorite BBQ sauce for the ketchup and they were delicious. I would also recommend rotating the ribs halfway through the cooking process if possible so that all the ribs are equally tender. This just became my favorite slow cooker recipe.

Awesome Roast Beef

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2002
This recipe did not turn out as I had hoped. I found the gravy to be very salty and the carrots I added at the beginning were still crunchy after 9 hours of cooking. On top of this, my beef was not at all tender even though I used the recommended cut of roast. I was disappointed.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2002
This was my second attempt at slow cooker roast beef and I preferred this recipe to 'Awesome Roast Beef'. I used only 1/2 the mushroom soup and water and I still had TONS of gravy left over! I also substituted Liptons Onion and Garlic Dry soup then added 2 cloves of crushed garlic to the soups. In my last hour of cooking, I added a diced garden-ripe tomato to the sauce just to add another dimension to the flavor. After straining the gravy, it needed a little cornstarch to thicken it up. It was very good, but I think I need to play around with the cut of beef a little more. I used a boneless cross rib, but I'm sure there are other options that may be more tender. I also noticed that the beef submerged under the gravy was more tender than the beef above the gravy level...next time, I will turn the roast as soon as I get home from work. Two thumbs up!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2002
I took these muffins to work and they were a hit! Everyone loved the streusal topping and commented on how moist the muffins were! There was plenty of leftover topping, but I've just popped it in the freezer for my next batch. I doubled the recipe and added the grated rind of one lemon to the flour mixture. Definitely a keeper!
