Grandma Minnie's Old Fashioned Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2004
A wonderful cookie! I found that these were much better, and easier to handle when they were *not* chilled. I made two batches, and only chilled one, and the unchilled batch rolled out smoothly and easily compared to the chilled batch.

Kay's Shortbread

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2004
I'm not a huge fan of shortbread, but my husband and daughter gave this recipe an enthusiastic five stars. A very easy recipe, and it had a lovely texture. This seems like it could be a good base for a lot of desserts, actually.

Baked Salmon II

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2002
This was my first time baking salmon, and it turned out beautifully....even my six year old loved it, and asked for seconds! I added thinly sliced onions and lemons to the packets before baking. Delicious!

Chocolate Banana Cream Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2002
This was fabulous! Plus, it was so easy that my six year old and I quickly made it together....always a plus. That little extra layer of chocolate was perfect.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2002
This was absolutely delicious, but the best part was how EASY it was! I was a little apprehensive about not browning the meat (I used a round rump roast), but it turned out perfectly without it. For those who thought that it made way too much gravy....it DID make a lot, but I think that was the point. My roast was able to be completely submerged for the entire cooking time, and it was so tender! I did thicken it with a little cornstarch/water mixture at the end. I also tossed in a bay leaf, and some super finely chopped onion.

Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2002
This a perfect Fall snack.....delicious paired with some apple cider. I added two cups of walnut pieces/halves to the popcorn before mixing in the caramel mixture, and it was a wonderful tasting blend of flavors and texture.

Sue's Hot Fudge Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2003
Absolutely FABULOUS! I didn't blend at the end....simply whisked throughout the boiling part. It turned out smooth and perfect. I served it over french vanilla ice cream at a dinner party. It made a simple dessert after a big meal, but looked great. I had to print out copies for the guests, because everyone loved it!

Restaurant-Style Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2004
Yum! This was wonderful. I didn't change a thing this time (other than a handful of fresh italian parsley), but I'm sure there are lots of variations that would be good. A keeper.

Restaurant-Style Potato Skins

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2004
A perfect Superbowl snack....these did not last long! My sister thought they were *better* than a lot of restaraunts. I used real bacon, and topped it with ranch dressing instead of sour cream.

Coffeebar Chai

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2004
This is a great recipe. I don't care for most of the coffeehouse chai drinks....they are too thick and sweet. This is exactly what I was looking for!
