Peanut Butter Popcorn

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2011
This is very good. I used real popped popcorn (trying to economize). At first I thought it was going to be too marshmallow-ey for me because I am not a big fan of marshmallows but the taste of marshmallows seemed to mellow down. I did bake for 20 minutes or maybe a little more. I decided it would be better with a little more salt so I added a very small amount - maybe 1/4 tsp. I bet peanut butter varies in sodium level, though, so taste it before you add any. I think I will try it with crunchy peanut butter next time and I may toss some chocolate chips in after baking and then stir to let them melt around on the popcorn. I think I may send some of this in to my granddaughter's class for snack (they don't have any peanut allergies, thank goodness). UPDATE: I realized after writing this that the microwave popcorn would be salted - that's why I had to add salt when I used regular, natural popcorn.

Apple Crisp Cups

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2011
These are tasty and look impressive, too. It takes a bit of time to form the crusts so plan accordingly but they are worth the effort. Thanks, Weeble, these will be on my holiday "mini-pie and tassie plate".

Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2011
I have made this several times - can't believe that I never reviewed it until now. I make this in a slow cooker. It's wonderful to come home to especially on a chilly day. I added some chicken flavored, low sodium "Better Than Bouillon" today because my ham was not very flavorful. I also had one ear of leftover corn on the cob so I cut the kernels off and added them, It added a subtle sweet note that was good. Nice and rich and filling. A meal in a bowl.

Cheddar Onion Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2011
I used green onions as other reviewers did and I also needed to add an extra splash of milk. I am lactose intolerant and didn't want to buy buttermilk just for this recipe so I put a Tablespoon of cider vinegar into a measuring cup and then added enough lactose-free milk to make the one cup needed. These biscuits are really delicious. The perfect accompaniment to my "wow, Fall is here" chili.

Yummy Blueberry Cobbler

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2011
I made this today at the hospice where I volunteer. I used 3/4 cup sugar in the batter and 3/4 cup in the dry topping. It was slightly tart and delicious. I like the way the dry topping makes the batter crisp on the top. I will definitely use this recipe again at home.

White Chocolate Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
Very good! I left the walnuts out because my granddaughter doesn't like them but I think they would be GREAT with them. I used the zest from a whole medium orange and think I'll use two next time for more orange flavor. I also think I'll try them with half or even all chocolate chips. I really like the combination of orange and chocolate. Thanks for sharing a great recipe!

Donut Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2011
I love the cider donuts that are available in the Fall so I tweaked these muffins to resemble them. Not a huge fan of nutmeg, I substituted cinnamon for the nutmeg in the batter. Next time I think I will add a pinch of nutmeg along with a teaspoon of cinnamon. I also substituted cider for the milk. The result is wonderful! I did have butter left over after dipping the tops so I will melt less for that. In accordance with some other reviews, after dipping the tops, I rolled the entire muffin in the cinnamon and sugar mixture and as a result I ran out just before the last muffin! So I'll be a little heavy-handed with that next time but that's because I altered the recipe, not because the recipe was faulty. I made these little gems so that I can take some with me tomorrow to an interview for a volunteer position cooking at a local hospice. I hope they lke them as much as I do!

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2011
This was delicious!I used it on a chocolate cake - my favorite is the one on the back of the Hershey's cocoa can. I put this between the layers and on top and then colored some green and made pine trees and added gummy bears for a pine forest. Beat this frosting for quite a while and you'll get fluffy peanut butter goodness!

Caramel Macchiato Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2011
I had heard others rave about this and couldn't wait to try it. It turned out wonderful! I had three bananas that needed to be used so I used all three. I also have instant espresso so I used that. It is moist and delicious. I read on the Buzz that others had the glaze turn out crunchy. Make sure that you lower the temperature and just simmer for three minutes. Otherwise, you'll make penuche. I was taught to always add vanilla at the end off the heat to preserve maximum flavor so I did that in the glaze. I want to try this recipe again using pumpkin puree in place of the bananas. I bet that will be great, too. I will update my review and let you know!

Basil Vinaigrette Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2011
I love basil so I had to try this dressing and it did not disappoint. Nice balance of sweet (honey), sour (vinegar)and spicy (basil). This will be a staple in my house throughout the summer when fresh basil is readily available. Thanks NEERONDOGS!

Smooth Sweet Tea

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
mmmm, mmmmm, mmmm, mmmmmm and again, mmmmm. I am a Yankee born and bred but I have spent quite a bit of time in Atlanta and this is IT. Southern sweet tea at its best. I had heard about using baking soda to make clear iced tea and it sounded odd to me but just a tiny pinch yields a crystal clear tea with no discernible flavor. Adjust the sweetness after the first batch if you want to but try it first as written. It really is a treat.

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
I just mixed this up and I can hardly wait until it has time to sit and get better. When I tasted it I wanted to just keep eating! I added some pepper just because but otherwise followed the recipe. I know I will be making this again and again this summer. Thanks for a great recipe, Sandi.

Buttery Corn Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2011
Quick, easy and delicious. What more could you want? I saw Morgan's picture of this and decided to try it. Then I nearly forgot so I threw it together at the last minute. My little granddaughters and I all loved it! Thanks for a great cornbread recipe.

Ruby Drive Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2011
Really quick and delicious. This was perfect for a hot evening since it's one pan and cooks quickly. I don't really like dijon mustard but I wanted to be true to the recipe so I added it. You can't detect it specifically and it probably did add to the overall taste so I am glad I put it in. I did add onion powder and garlic powder but it probably didn't need it so don't sweat it if you don't have any. Make it as written and enjoy! UPDATE: I now have custody of my 6 and 7 year old granddaughters. I was afraid these might be too spicy or tangy for them. I don't find them too spicy or tangy but I fixed them without the hot pepper and held my breath and my girls LOVED them! Fix them, serve them, enjoy them. This recipe is a winner.

Indian Chicken Curry II

Reviewed: May 11, 2011
Very, very good. I browned the spices in a dry saute pan as another reviewer recommended. I remember seeing an Indian chef do this on tv. I also added julienned green and red peppers. This may not be authentic to classic Indian curry but I am sure that Indian housewives add their own touches to dishes too. Made it a bit more healthy and added color. I found that it needed some salt but curry powders vary so be sure to taste your sauce and adjust accordingly. I served it over Jasmine rice.

Strawberry Pie II

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
I made this for Easter dessert and it tastes great! Mine got a little juicy but I think that's because my berries were big so I cut some of them in half. I think whole berries would have held up better. I will definitely make it again so I will use smaller whole berries. I also used my regular pie pan rather than my deep dish one and that was a mistake as well. I answered the phone just as I was ready to pour the cooked berries over the uncooked ones and I let the syrup overflow the edges of the crust! DOH! But my little granddaughters and I didn't mind at all because the flavor was delicious!

This recipe requires a bit of prep time but it is well worth the effort. Truly a stand out. When you want a Thai restaurant experience without leaving home this is the one!

Zesty Porcupine Meatballs

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2011
Very good. I added crushed garlic since we all love garlic with beef. I will add more rice next time. I wondered why others served them with rice or noodles. No complaints, though. These are delicious. I don't think other recipes I have used in the past had Worcestershire sauce and that's what puts this over the top. Thank you!

Mushroom Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
This was great! I added more onions, probably half a cup, and after reading the reviews I added capers. I also added the zest from one lemon and a little rosemary. Finally, after tasting the sauce, I added extra wine. But these subtle changes were just to accommodate my personal preferences. Great recipe, Karen, Thanks for sharing!
