Angel Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
I planned to make this while I was visiting my son and his family in another city. When preparing to start it was noticed that all the chicken was gone, but they had shrimp, so I subbed with the shrimp. It turned out great even with the last minute substitution. Lovely! Special yet simple to prepare.

Cranberry Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
I made this for my family's (brothers, sisters, spouses and kids) big get together on Dec. 26. There were 4 other desserts and this was definitely the star of the dessert table. The custard sauce is rich yet creamy and delicate. I wondered about the sugar sprinkled over the top, but it would not have been as good without it. The sugar forms a sweet crust which is especially good on the cranberries. I did increase the amounts of everything a bit because the pan I used is slightly bigger and I like a very full, dense pan of bread pudding. I also wanted a rich red look to it because I was making it as a holiday dessert. Fabulous and such a treat!

Best Ever Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
I doubled the recipe and made 1 loaf and jumbo muffins adding vanilla and almond extracts and using banana cream pie flavored yogurt instead of the buttermilk. I added chopped dates to the loaf and added pumpkin pie spice to the muffins as well as a struesel to the top of the muffins. Very good, moist and tasty, both versions.

Easy Platz (Coffee Cake)

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
Except for the addition of vanilla and almond extracts, I followed the recipe exactly. It was fabulous. My husband and I virtually demolished the coffee cake when taking turns getting out of bed overnight and snacking. I really love blackberries and the simplicity of this recipe just rocks. Oh, one more small change: I dusted the pan with cinnamon/sugar instead of flour.

Crazy Crust Apple Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
Like many others who posted, I changed it only because I find canned apple pie filling too sweet and not as flavorful as making my own. I sliced up 4 apples (3 honeycrisp and 1 gala) into a pan with 1/2 cup of butter, 1/2 cup sugar, 2.5 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 tsp. cloves. After sauteing for about 15 minutes on medium heat, I poured over the crust mixture in the recipe. I took this to my sister's for Thanksgiving and it was a great hit. Other than boiling over in my oven, I was really happy with it. The original recipe did not specify size of pan so I used a 9" pyrex pie pan and it did not accomodate the apple/crust mixture. I'll use a bigger pan next time because I thought the amount of apples was appropriate. Overall, I thought this is a creative way to make an applie pie without having to make a standard pastry crust.

Pineapple Carrot Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2009
I made this as muffins as I only had one 8 x 4 pan. I also didn't discover until almost finished making that I had no nuts. Added pumpkin pie spice also. I applied melted butter and dipped muffins in a mix of sugar and cinnamon when finished baking. Thought this recipe was just great as muffins.

Cinnamon Streusel Orange Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2009
Wonderful, tasty moist muffins. Great right out of the oven. Only change I made was I did not have buttermilk so substituted orange yogurt. We had one just before bed after they came out of the oven and again for breakfast. Fabulous!

Peppery Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2009
The first time I made this exactly as the recipe directed. The next time I used 3/4 cup half and half and 3/4 cup chicken broth. Both times I felt the recipe was a winner and loved the addition of the cayenne pepper. Very creamy and rich and I will definitely make again.

Green Chile Frittata

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
I had a similar recipe many years ago and lost track of it. I wanted to bake the frittata in a 7 x 11 pan so only used 8 eggs and left everything else the same. Came out great and we loved it. With my old recipe I found that it was so versatile, I could put pepperoni on top, or asparagus spears or whatever you have on hand. Really good and easy recipe.

Cottage Cheese Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2009
Very good, liked the addition of the cottage cheese. Flavorful and easy to make. I think the problem others had had more to do with the lack of color because no ketchup used in the glaze and also the cottage cheese produced a lighter look.

Barbequed Hamburgers

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
The only change I made was balsamic vinegar because I didn't have any other kind and per the review by Jim I transferred the patties to a baking dish and baked after pan browning. I was surprised by how much we enjoyed them. Great way to have an individual meatloaf.

Old-Fashioned Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
08/31/09- As in the case of other reviews, I had leftover rice (quite a lot) and was craving some rice pudding. It seems most rice pudding recipes call for uncooked rice so this one attracted me right away. I tripled the recipe, adding some brown sugar and cinnamon and raisins. It turned out great. I think next time I'll add an egg to up the creaminess as another reviewer suggested. Great basic, old-fashioned recipe that lets you add or change as needed. 09/08/09- I have made this recipe several times now and added a beaten egg to the mixture to up the creaminess quotient. As I commented earlier, this is a great basic recipe to change as needed. I also substituted Splenda for sugar the last time I made and it was still an excellent pudding. Very creamy and satisfying recipe for an old-fashioned treat.

Beat and Bake Orange Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
Last week I made the Orange Yogurt Bread on this site and thought it was wonderful and gave it a glowing review. Last night I made the Beat and Bake Orange Cake. I prefer this recipe and the frosting is so good, it really makes makes this cake. The only change I made was to substitute orange yogurt for the milk. I felt it gave the tang that an orange cake should have.

Spicy Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
I liked this recipe, it was easy and quick to put together and fairly simple. I mixed it in my food processor as I do whenever I find a recipe that requires butter or shortening be "cut in". Although, it seemed they cooked very quickly and the first pan were way too dark and I didn't overcook according to the 8-10 minutes. I removed the other cookies from the oven much earlier than the first ones. The banana in the recipe is unique. I did add vanilla extract although the recipe didn't call for it.

Orange Oatmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
Yesterday I made the Tasty Orange-Oatmeal Muffins on the Allrecipes site and tonight I made these. These I found were much better tasting. I put 1 cup of craisins in with the boiling water/oj/oatmeal mixture to help plump them and even forgot to add the vanilla extract. I made a streusel from a banana crumb muffin recipe on Allrecipes and think this is an excellent muffin.

Tasty Orange-Oatmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
Muffin with nice oatmeal texture and tangy orange flavor. Instead of the orange juice/sugar icing I made a streusel from another muffin recipe on this site. I had no problems with sticking, I use a jumbo muffin tin and just greased the tin with butter. I did not add the raisins to the batter.

Orange Yogurt Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
Wow, what great taste! On my second go-round I also substituted some of the all-purpose flour with wheat flour. Wonderful, pound cake flavor that would be really good with fresh fruit and whipped cream. I added some orange zest to the glaze. Loved the glaze too.

Orange Banana Nut Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2009
I also really liked this recipe. I made only one change: instead of 1 1/4 cups mashed banana, I added 1/2 cup banana yogurt. I thought this banana bread recipe rocked. So, good!

Bright Blue Monday Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
I usually don't change the recipe on the first try, but broke my own rule here. I added 1 tsp. vanilla to the batter because others had recommended that change. The change I should not have made was I doubled the recipe and then baked in a 10" tube pan. I had to bake for 1/2 hour longer than recommended in the recipe. Once cooled though, I could not remove from the pan without it breaking apart, so I just cut pieces off as we ate it and then today took it completely out of the pan. The cake itself tasted great. I won't bake it in that type of pan again.

Blueberry Clafouti

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2009
I had never heard of a clafouti. Since I love any custard, I really liked this and with the blueberries, it was fabulous. Easy to make and not your standard cobbler.
