Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2011
Made half batch using fresh pumpkin mash and homemade applesauce for half of the oil. Absolutely delictable. I didn't make the topping - just sprinkled a little sugar on top and they were fine. I *do* wish I had used my muffin tins (jumbo) - I used cupcake tins and ended up with 18 (not the 9 I expected). Note to self: Fill almost to top as they don't rise a great deal.

Lazy Daisy Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2011
Ouch! Couldn't wait to try this and sure enough ... burnt my tounge (grin). Absolutely wonderful - I can so see this will some grilled or glazed pineapple on top. Yes, the topping *is* sweet, but there's so little (I barely had enough to spread around the cake) that you aren't overwhelmed by it. I, too, decreased butter down to 6T and poked holes in cake so topping could melt down. Yum!

Spicy Bean with Bacon Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
I've spent years trying to find a good Campbells Bean & Bacon soup clone - - - this is it! Made as directed and it was good. Tweaked it just a bit by noting the following: to keep your beans from staying too hard, don't add salt or tomato sauce until beans are soft; I did the ole "boil the beans for a minute, let sit for an hour" thing with fine results; Used a mixture of navy, northern, and pinto beans; puree apx 1/3rd of soup to give it more consistency; Outstanding flavor - my thanks for the recipe !!!

Ruby Drive Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2011
Oh this stuff kicks! I haven't made sloppy joes in YEARS as I can't stand the packaged/canned stuff - but these rocked. I did saute a bit of onion first and left out the brown sugar - other than that, followed recipe. At firt I thought it would still be too sweet, but the addition of the hot sauce took care of that. Thanks so much!

Mom's Sticky Chicken From 1972

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2013
Hubby went NUTS over these. I, too, used chicken wings. Made exactly as directed with only change being to run them under the broiler for 5" or so to crisp up. Outstanding. We had with Pizza Bread and a salad, but would be great with steamed rice and Asian flavored meal as well. TYSM for recipe! Note to self: this sauce is amazing. When boiled on stovetop, would make a GREAT sweet & sour sauce; when reduced (as others have noted) tastes just like General Tso's chicken sauce.

Campbell's Kitchen Sweet and Sour Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
For speed, taste, and simplicity I have to give this five stars. This may not be a gourmet nor terribly visually appealing recipe (mine did not look like pic as peppers loose their color and meat turns a bit milky looking), BUT - - - the flavors were wonderful. We served over rice and sprinkled crispy noodles on top - added a dash of Chinese hot sauce (we're spicy peoples lol). Seconds all around. Nice job and thank you. Will certainly make again.

Homemade Cream-Filled Sponge Cakes

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2014
Freak'n awesome! I did use my own filling recipe, so can't rate that; used 1/2 cup veg oil as the only pudding I had was a 1oz pkg, but they turned out superb. I used a bar pan with about 1/4 cup mix per mold - mine took around 20 minutes to cook.

Fluffy Whole Wheat Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2013
For goodness sake, don't just dump the liquid in while making your biscuits as different humidity levels will effect how your flour absorbs the milk. I'm assuming the submitter meant the 1/2 cp to be a general guide. I whipped up half a batch in less than the time needed to gather the ingredients and use 2T less milk than called for. Just take your time and feel the dough with your hands. These were lovely and baked up beautifully. For hubby, I'll probably cut wheat flour to 1/3 cup and use a bit more white flour - but again, personally, I thought they were spectacular. Only cutters I had were 2 1/4" and 3" so I used the smaller of the two and came out with exactly 6 biscuits. Will definately make again and tysm for recipe!

Jeff's Hot Dog Chili

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2013
I know everyone hates it when you change recipes, but hey - I'm not a pro and I can't customize it so don't read on if you're annoyed by my notes. Watching fat, so I opted to combine the meat & water first - merrily mashing and squishing along so I could achieve that hotdog sauce consistency. Then I drained meat and skimmed the fat from the liquid. Was worried about the sweetness of our ketchup, so I only added half of what was called for and stopped after that (would have been way too sweet). Entirely skipped the sugar, but added everything else recipe called for. Added back some of the reserved liquid and let it reduce. Finally opted to add a few shakes of Hungarian Hot Paprika for just that little bit of kick. Outstanding and a new hotdog sauce fav! Thanks so much for the recipe!

Labneh (Lebanese Cream Cheese)

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
Oh ye gods this was delightful! I had some yogurt that needed to be used up, so I made a batch of Piadina Romagnola flatbread and used the remaining 2 cups to make a scaled down version of this. I wanted to use for dinner, so I squeezed out as much liquid as I could, then put a heavy can on top to press out adt'l liquid. Only able to let is sit for about 12 hours. Cream cheese with an attitude! Wonderful bite - can't wait to remake and allow to sit the entire 24 hrs.

You Want Me to Eat This Taco Mix

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
Substituting the Hot Hungarian Parika for other spicy elements usually called for in taco seasoning mixes KILLS THIS! Yum!

My-Hop Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
Ye gods these were good! I don't like huge puffy pancakes, so I deliberately thinned them out abit, but for us they were perfect! I had to adjust for what I had on hand and ended up a) halfing recipe, b) I couldn't stand putting in all that oil so I only used about 1T of oil and used half and half for difference, c) used fresh lemon juice (2 good squeezes for a half), let sit for 20", then thinned out batter with about a dollop of milk. Ended up with 7 nice size pancakes - perfect for husband & I. Wonderful!

Hot and Sour Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2014
Yum. Yum yum yum. Made exactly as directed with exception of doing the vinegar/cornstarch mixture before adding the beaten egg. Devoured. Oh - and only used 1 chicken breast - which was perfect. Next time I think we'll pour over steamed rice as hubs only complaint was that he missed his starch. Thanks so much for recipe!

Corn Muffins by Ina

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
These were near as good as Grandmothers Cornbread recipe - but in a rustic coarse fashion. Very nice change. I used buttermilk and low sodium baking powder with no problems whatsoever.

Baked Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2014
One person says it tastes like a funnel cake; another says frittata. When I see remarks like that, I simply have to try the recipe. As a breakfast pancake, I wouldn't give this but a 3* rating. But as a quick delightful economic after dinner dessert? I'd give it 5* (assuming you throw on powdered sugar, fruit (fried apples would be insane - we tried berries), and/or whipped cream. Will definitely make again - but never in lieu of pancakes. Final note: add splash of vanilla, cut eggs to 1 1/2, sugar to 1/2 t, baked @ 425 for 18" using insanely hot preheated cast iron skillet. Oh. And what does it taste like? You'll have to try it yourself to find out...

Sour Cherry Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2010
This was my first attempt at a Cherry Pie, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect (never used canned fruit and/or tapioca before). Used homemade crust - was a little concerned about the amount of liquid that developed after adding sugar, so I panicked and scooped out about 1 cup of liquid - - - aside from that, taste was great. Appearance of canned cherries not that wonderful, but that must be why some people add red food coloring (?) In any event, will make again :)

Iced Coffee Syrup

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2012
Wow! I was trolling my recipe box looking for gift ideas and came across this recipe. Took all of 2 minutes to whip up and I just love it! After reading reviews, I decided to start with 1 1/2 cup water and then add more if it was too strong, but nixed that idea after tasting. Just a word of caution, this *is* sweet, so don't add too much. My first try was 1/4 cup mix & a 1/4 cup cold coffee poured over ice and then topped with milk ....... WAY too sweet (on a serious sugar/coffee rush here now). Stick with the 2T next time.

Megan's Granola

Reviewed: May 14, 2011
I'm terribly pleased with your recipe and thank you so much. Made a half batch, didn't have oat bran and added coconut, and cranberries along with raisins. Used nuts I had available and also sub'd half applesauce for half the oil. I baked for 20" and then left it in warm oven for 10 more minutes. I think I had my pan overloaded (only used 1 for a half recipe) as it's still a little soft ... but that could be from the applesauce. I used honey, brown subar, and maple syrup and didn't find it overly sweet at all - just right. All in all, very nice!
