Jan's Fresh Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2014
If you don't have time for a cobbler or crusted pie, (which are my favorites for berries) this is perfect for a refreshing pie. I would recommend making a homemade graham crust, which IMO, is far better. There is no comparison with the store bought with all the added junk they put in them. I pound each unopened pkg of crackers with my fist to break them up, then dump the entire pkg in my ancient 'Little Oscar' processor. It just takes a couple grinds and the crumbs are perfect. I melt the butter in the microwave in the pie plate, mix the crumbs and sugar in a bowl, then stir them into the melted butter, and press it down with my hand. (Yes, I lick me fingers afterwards.) You can bake or chill the crusts, but I always bake mine. Its so worth it in flavor to make your own. The blueberry filling holds together nicely, and slices clean. Take the pie out of the frig about 10 min. before serving, so the crust can be sliced easily. I use real whipping cream, but you can top it with the faux chemical stuff if you wish. The pie was gone in no time.

Watermelon, Almond, Feta and Mint Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2013
Made it for company, and they really liked it. I thought it was better the next day when the mint had permeated the melon more.

No Fail Pie Crust II

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2013
Made Blackberry pie with a double crust for my co-workers. I followed the recipe exactly, but cut the recipe in half...took two balls and flattened them in plastic wrap, and chilled them for a while, then rolled them out on a pastry cloth with rolling pin covered with cloth. No problems whatsoever. I got so many compliments on the crust. I will use this recipe often.

Sweet Potato, Carrot, Apple, and Red Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2012
This is a very unique and unusual recipe. The main reason I chose it was the ingredients ~ a very healthy soup. It is rather thick, but the taste is good. I will probably make it again.

Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2012
I have made this per the recipe and really enjoyed the fact that it was not too sweet. I used fruit w/o sweetened syrup, and half pkg of marshmallows. If you use the low-fat or fat free scour cream, it is a fairly healthy salad. I have added pecans and toasted coconut on occasion just to change it a bit. Its quick to prepare.

Amazing Pecan Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2012
It IS amazing! I did double the topping. I had a hard time trying to remove the cake from the pan. It seemed it would break apart, so I just left it in the pan. I ate some while warm and it was yummy. Took the rest to work for co-workers, and it is still wonderful cold.

Rhubarb Cherry Crisp

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2011
Perfect combination of sweet and tart, and simple recipe. I used fresh picked rhubarb, and local strawberries, then served it hot with ice cream.

Turkey Tenderloins

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
Simple, but lacking in flavor. I used double the amount of fresh Rosemary, but it needed S&P or something.

Basic Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
I have used the same recipe for baking pies for over 35 years. I never have complaints. It is easily adaptable for all types of fillings, and the recipe can be doubled without problems. I prefer pastry cloths for rolling. I occasionally use butter in place of butter-flavored Crisco, with the same good results. Chilled ingredients do help.This is a good, dependable recipe for beginners and beyond.

Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
(Pardon me while I lick my fingers!) OK...changed slightly based on recommendation to oil, additional pumpkin, and extra spice. These are wonderful! Very good flavor and moist texture. My boss-lady is gonna love these for her birthday!

Spiced Pot Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
My German boyfriend thought this was delicious. I used a chuck roast, and when done, took it out, shredded it, then added it back to the broth. I enjoyed the leftovers when the sauce had intensely flavored the meat. No changes necessary. Served it with sauteed cabbage. Great comfort meal.

Flounder Mediterranean

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
This was a big hit. I used canned tomatoes as recommended because fresh are out-of-season, with fresh basil, and a good quality Parmesan-Rigganno. I didn't cook the flounder with the sauce, but ladled it over the fish after baking. The sauce is awesome and needed no adjustments.

I am the most popular woman at work after giving individual batches of the batter as Christmas gifts. Everyone enjoyed the toddy's. A very comforting, delicious drink.

Stewed Cabbage

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2010
This was wonderful. I just happened to have some Benton's bacon from breakfast already prepared, so I used about 3 tablespoons of the drippings with 1 tablespoon butter. My guests asked for the recipe ~ a good sign. Served it with "Best Ever Brisket" and "Easy Polenta With Tomato Sauce". All Recipes is my go-to source these days!
