Wisconsin Native's Beer Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2014
I tried this because I liked the large amount of veggies. This comes out better if they are chopped very fine. This helps them cook completely and they won't sink when served. These are very large servings. I started out making half to try it and I have enough for several lunches. My main downgrade is that cheese measured in cups can very a lot. I wish I knew the weight. I was reluctant to try popcorn but homemade croutons were great with it.

Steak Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2014
We do not usually use steak sauce but I will use this as a dipping sauce and a topping for meatloaf. I like this one since it is not too heavy on the Worcestershire. I experimented with a third of it and added garlic powder and a couple of drops of liquid smoke but the recipe is great as written.

Cranberry Walnut Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2014
Butter and walnuts give this a tasty difference from the directions on the package of cranberries. This recipe is obviously three times the usual amounts so it easily scaled down. Be sure to use a very large bowl if you make this amount. I never go to the trouble of mixing a quick bread with these many steps. I dump the wet ingredients together with the salt. Then the soda and baking powder are sprinkled all over to distribute evenly and the flour is stirred in just to mix. Large pieces of cranberry and nuts can look good but can also cause problems making nice slices. I gave my cranberries a quick whirl in a food processor since there were so many.

Make-Ahead Hot Buttered Rum Mix

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2013
Yum. Very warming and relaxing. I used dried orange peel and it was fine. Pumpkin Pie spice really varies so I left it out of my first batch and experimented with the first cup. I actually prefer just nutmeg and thought cinnamon took over. The spice mix would definitely be personal taste. I divided the butter brown sugar mix onto wax paper and got 12 instead of 10 so I must have not rounded my tablespoons as much. This still tasted great in a full size mug. I may try a small amount of leftover commercial eggnog in my next cup.

Chewy Coconut Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2013
Good chewy bar that isn't overly sweet. I was looking for a coconut bar but didn't want chocolate chips. The reviews seemed to all agree on butter and more coconut. I used white chocolate chips and was careful to not over bake them. They came out great. I plan to make again with white chocolate and macadamia nuts and then with the other suggestions of butterscotch chips. I think several different chip/nut combos would be very good.

Healing Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2013
Very good. I had left over chopped cabbage, onions, and carrots for slaw and didn't want to waste them. I added a little ground pork and had pork soup base instead of chicken. I felt this recipe would adapt well to other veggies and a little added meat or sausage. Served with good bread, it is a great meal.

Slow Cooker Texas Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2013
Adjust the vinegar and sugar based on your BBQ sauce. This is great but could become very tangy or sweet depending on the sauce you start with. There is a huge amount of juice. I had 1.5 quarts! I used a 5 lb shoulder without increasing anything else. I used beer instead of broth. I reduced the juices without the meat and liked the result. I am going to cook the next one on the stove so that I can take the lid off after the meat is mostly done. This should let the liquid reduce without an extra step. I offer two types of BBQ sauce and hot sauce so the guests can get their sandwich just like they want.

Blackberry Cobbler II

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2012
My family is used to pie crust topping instead of a biscuit so I knew we would like this. I didn't bother boiling the water for the dough. I use more/less sugar and water depending on the fruit. This works well with all of the fruit I have tried. I add lemon juice, orange peel, cinnamon to various ones. You can also not cook all the fruit from the very beginning. Some will be very soft and some will have more texture.

Yummy Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
Very good and very easy. I divided it and added ginger paste to half. I can see this would adapt easily.

Roasted Potatoes with Greens

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2011
I mostly try recipes as written then variations but I knew I liked rosemary potatoes and all roasted veggies. I also needed to serve more than this. I more than doubled the potatoes and seasoning. I had a 6 oz bag of spinach and also added an onion chopped in large pieces and two stalks of celery that I needed to use. The celery would be fine either way but I liked the onion with it a lot.

Yummy Honey Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2011
Great recipe and I am now into variations. I added 1 tsp of ginger paste to the doubled marinade. I sliced the garlic and gave it 15 seconds in a bit of the oil before adding to the marinade. This ups the flavor. I grilled the breasts whole and did the veggies in the oven since prep time was short and it was very good. I will be trying this on pork also. Pepper flakes would up the heat if desired.

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
Great taste and I have tried several of the variations in previous reviews. So this is just hints. Use two non stick spatulas to shape logs. I always seem to have one log with more dough so I just make that one longer. I have also used a spatula in one hand and nonstick foil in the other. You can make light olive oil by mixing in canola oil to regular oil. My mix is only 1/3 olive and the rest canola.

Two Ingredient Pumpkin Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
The idea is already listed on this site as Easy Pumpkin Muffins. They are very tasty but the texture seems more suited to mufffins.

Adrienne's Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2010
You can leave out the water completely if you give it a little longer to marinate. Turn or stir occasionally. This makes more difference if they are not all eaten immediately. The sugar will draw the liquid out of the cucumbers and it will be very watery. A light sprinke of salt is good. A variation is adding really good summer tomatoes.

Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2010
This is a great idea but has too much oil which doesn't reduce. The second time I sliced my meat into 1 1/2 inch rounds and covered with my preferred salty steak rub for slightly more than an hour. I learned in a cooking magazine that this is a form of brining. At first the surface is very wet but the salt and liquid is drawn back into the meat. I used only 1/4 cup of olive oil and the whole amount of vinegar and cooked for a shorter time to reach the correct temperature.

Best Cream Of Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2010
Very, very good. The second time I tried for lower fat and easy clean up. I am sure the suggestions of cream would be delicious but I didn't want to feel guilty. Didn't saute-just started with simmering veggies and left our the first butter. Used a stick blender right in the pan. Creamed the butter and flour in small bowl and added ball to soup before milk. This will quickly stir in and not lump. I added about 2 teaspoons of mustard. Small amounst of mustard add interest but can't be identified. I add mustard to soups, salad dressing, mac and cheese.

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2010
This makes a lot. I divided it up to serve hot in batches but didn't use quite all of it for a small group. Leftover dips with cream cheese and/or mayo will flavor a wide variety of other foods. Stirred into cooked rice, drained hot corn or any veggie, spread on bread and lightly toasted, spread on baked potatoes. There are lots of ways to use it to spice up your next meal.

Warm Maple, Ham and Apple Coffeecake

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2010
I read this having left over good French bread but not biscuits. I decided I could add a little butter to the top since bread is much lower in fat than biscuits. I was concerned that the biscuits rising held it together and my change might need 2 eggs. My husband thinks this is better than turning older bread into French toast and can't wait to try it with biscuits. I will also try the sauce next time.

Three Olive Spread

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
Very versatile. I love olives but husband thought it was strong on crackers but great added to sandwiches. I have also added it to green salads and cottage cheese and plan to try it on vegetables. Next I might try it with pepperoncini and parmasean.

Poppy Seed Dressing II

Reviewed: May 24, 2009
I decided grating onion might be messy and I expected a whisked dressing might separate. I used a 1/4 inch slice of a large sweet onion. I used a blender food processor attachement and started with the onion and vinegar on the highest speed for a few seconds. Add the rest of the ingredients except poppy seeds and process for several more seconds. Stir in poppy seeds. The onion is completely blended in and the dressing won't separate.
