Apricot Orange Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
It looks like I'm the only one who had problems with this recipe. I could not get this bread to cook in the middle; I even cooked it extra time, and it was getting too dark on the top.It is a very crumbly bread--by the time I cut away the under-cooked middle, I was left with two ends of the bread, and they didn't look very appetizing. I wasn't impressed with the taste--a bit bland.

Peanut Butter Sheet Cake

Reviewed: May 18, 2004
I made this cake for family, then took the rest to work. Everyone raved about it. I used crunchy, honey-roasted peanut butter in the cake batter, and regular peanut butter for the icing. Yes, the flavor is delicate, not like a stick-to-the-roof-of-your-mouth peanut butter sandwich. It is very moist. I will definitely make this cake again!

Faye's Pulled Barbecue Pork

Reviewed: May 4, 2004
I had no problem with this recipe; I'm not sure why it didn't work for some of the reviewers. Just don't overdo on the water, and add any extra seasonings that you enjoy. I made a 4 lb. roast in a dutch oven; it took about 3 1/2 hours to cook, and the whole house smelled wonderful! The meat, minus the BBQ sauce is basically "carnitas" in this family. This may not last until I get the chance to add the BBQ sauce---it will probably be gobbled up as taco filling!

Chicken Tortilla Soup II

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2003
I used the basic ingredients of the recipe, but did not add the tortillas as directed----mush happens. I added celery, thinly sliced zucchini, and a little shredded carrot for extra flavor. Corn could be added if desired. I think it is much better to add tortilla chips as a garnish when serving; if you want to go super-rich, additionally garnish with shredded jack cheese and avocado.

Strawberry Pretzel Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2003
I first tasted this classic recipe in the 60's. I was sold! The buttery, mildly salty pretzel crust is a delicious contrast to the sweet strawberry and the cream layers. I most recently brought this to our family reunion, and everyone went back for seconds! Easy to prepare; I used Neufchatel (lower in fat) cheese, and this did not alter the taste or consistency.

Ratatouille

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2003
I used the ingredients listed, with the exception of the cheese, and prepared it in a large saucepan instead of baking it. I added a little red wine, one cup of tomato sauce, a little thyme and rosemary. I cooked the mixture on medium heat until the extra liquid was absorbed. Prepared this way, it was delicious by itself or over pasta.

Chocolate Zucchini Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2003
These cookies are so good! Soft, cake-like, delicate flavor. I used butter instead of shortening, and grated a yellow summer squash that had grown too big. It was a gamble, but it worked out well. If you use a soft summer squash other than zucchini, be sure to grate only the solid part of the squash, not the skin or seed pulp area. I will definitely make this recipe again, and add it to my collection of "What to Make With Zucchini" recipes!

Chocolate Chip Peppermint Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2003
A tasty chocolate-chocolate cookie. They do become quite crisp when they have cooled, so if you like a softer cookie, eat them right away.

Rhubarb Stir Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2003
I've shared this recipe with fellow "rhubarb fans"-the cake is great with a little whipped cream on top of each serving. I had only half of the required nutmeg, so I added a little allspice. I was concerned about the thickness of the batter, but the cake came out tender and delicious.

Caramel Apple Bars III

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2003
This bar was very tasty---no spices needed, good flavor. I don't consider it a "no fuss" recipe, tho. I scorched two batches of caramel, trying to melt them as directed. On the third try, I resorted to the microwave on low power, stirring & checking frequently.A double boiler is an option as well.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2002
This bread is so rich and moist! I enjoy it sliced & lightly toasted, with a little butter. It tastes like banana bread pudding!
