Cream Puffs

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
These are very delicious, but didn't quite "puff up" like I had hoped. I too, read all the reviews before cooking and here is what I have to offer. I followed the recipe to a "T" and baked for 20 minutes flat. Perfect time. Use parchment paper, definitely, a MUST! Despite users saying 4 eggs was "too eggy" I thought the taste of the puffs were amazing with the sweetness of the filling. I used previous tips from AllRecipe users of poking the puffs immediately after baking to prevent deflating and it worked for the most part, but some still went flat, but it did not affect taste! I used one-and-a-half 1-oz. sugar free pudding mixes in place of the usual 3.5 oz. pudding mix. Lemon and Vanilla, both were phenomenal. (The sugar free makes more.) Filling was too thick to put through frosting dispenser, so I sliced and spoon filled them. I did not cool the batter, instead I added each egg and IMMEDIATELY used my hand mixer to mix the eggs in before they "cooked" in the hot batter. Wished I had powdered sugar or chocolate sauce to top the cream puffs with. Puffs are not sweet, but I liked it that way. The filling is very sweet so the "neutral" taste of the puffs was the perfect companion. I chose to top the finished cream puffs with lowfat Cool Whip, which my son and his friends loved. These cream puffs were a hit and I froze some for future deliciousness! Would make again. The kids are already begging for more, a week later!

Cindy's Awesome Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2011
Tripled this recipe as I like to freeze soups and such when I make them. Followed the recipe to a T, except I omitted one pack of soup mix. (Used 5 instead of 6) The consistency of this chowder couldn't be more perfect. Very creamy! I chopped up the 15 potatoes by hand, but have made other recipes with frozen plain hashbrowns, and I might try that next time. Saves time when you need it in a hurry. Did not add any extra salt to this recipe. This one is definitely a keeper!!

Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2010
This is WAY better than I thought it would be. WOW! I made minor adjustments...baked in microwave for 8 minutes then added 1 tbs. each half of "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" and 1 tbs. of brown sugar then baked for 20 minutes at 350. Heavenly! Going to buy more squash on my next store visit.

Very good, and so, so simple! My first time making eggplant. Substituted thin slices of mozzarella instead of Parmesan. Delicious and low cal!

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2010
Very good, but I made a few changes...and cooking is messy.. Definitely put foil on the bottom of your oven before baking! It will drip over and make a mess. I made two pies and doubled the recipe. Added 1 tsp. Cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. Nutmeg and 1 tsp. Vanilla to mixture. Mixture gets VERY thick, best to toss sliced apples in mixture instead of pouring over apples. This is a must! Personal preference, don't do the lattice crust. I made one with lattice and one with full pie crust. Preferred the latter. Baking two pies, I baked them at 425 for 30 minutes then 20 minutes at 350. Good base recipe, gooey filling.

Apple Butter I

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
Excellent, but I tweaked the recipe after reading everyone's reviews. Here is what I did...not too sweet, not too spicy, just right. 12 Medium Apples 2 tsp Cinnamon 2 c. Brown Sugar 1/2 tsp. Allspice 1/4 tsp. Salt 1/4 tsp. Ground Cloves Definitely use a hand mixer toward the end, as it helps to smooth out the apple butter. The mixture tends to "shrink" as you cook it, so fill that Crockpot as full as you can! My crockpot cooks fast, even on a low setting. Took less than 8 hours from start to finish for me. (1 year old Rival "Smart" Crockpot)

Tomato Pork Loin Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2009
Excellent recipe. Was quick and very easy to make. Eliminated the fennel seed because I didn't have any, and substituted the tomato paste for a can of diced tomatoes. Otherwise, I stuck to the recipe. Was still good without the fennel. Tenderizing the meat at the beginning is key to the pork being so tender and yummy! Entire family loved it. Will make again. Thanks!

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
My family and I loved this incredibly easy and quick recipe! I made it exactly to the recipe, except I left out the raisins. Delicious and I liked the consistency. And I swear, the bread pudding was almost better the next day. I will most definitely make this recipe again!

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2008
Excellent! I tripled the batch, and it turned out delicious! Left it a little chunky. I did drain some water, the recipe called for a bit too much in my opinion. Also made a fabulous banana bread with this applesauce!! SO easy, thank you! YUM!

Granny's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2008
Very good. For a recipe being so easy, you can't beat it. I used 3 bananas and homemade applesauce. Cut the sugar a bit and reduced cook time for 2 small loaves. Very good, quick & easy. SO GOOD warm with butter! Will make again.

Best Apple Crisp Ever

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2008
Dee-licious! I couldn't find my normal recipe for Apple Crisp so I decided to try this one. I am glad I did! SO EASY and SO YUM! My stepson even begged to take some home when heading back to his mom's place. I thought the topping was excellent and it was NOT dry or hard as others have suggested. I thought it was even better reheated the next day. I have a trillion apples off my neighbors tree and plan on making this one again tonight! Oh, P.S....REDUCE bake time! Start checking at 25-30 min!
