Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2009
Lots of people keep saying this is dry- it's because of the butter. Try making it without butter and instead using 1/4 c. vegetable oil and 1/4 applesauce. It is delicious and very moist this way. If you have apple butter on hand, that's an even better option than applesauce.

Green Chile Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
This seems like a lot of seasoning, but it was perfectly flavorful. I have to admit- I went a little crazy with this recipe: added a can of black beans, a can of cream of mushroom and then topped each bowl with some diced avocado and sour cream. I served it with buttered tortillas and it was out of this world!

Seafood Chowder

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
This is very, very good. I had to sub octopus for clams, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. My whole family agreed that this is a five star recipe- thank you so much, MVM.

Pumpkin Butter

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
This is a very easy, tasty recipe. The only change I made was to use fresh pureed pumpkin instead of canned. The cloves are a little overwhelming- next time I will halve them- otherwise this was pure perfection. Thank you for the recipe!

Apple Cake V

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
I didn't use any oil- I used half unsweetened applesauce and half homemade apple butter instead. This cut out lots of fat and added tons of flavor. The spices from the apple butter add a delicious touch. Thank you for the recipe!

Pesto Cheesy Chicken Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
This is delicious and so easy if you cheat like I do =) I used store bought pesto and I didn't roll the chicken up or even flatten it. I just put the pesto and cheese on top of each breast and it was fantastic. Thank you for the recipe!

Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
I skipped the breading and frying part. I just stir-fried the chicken and then tossed it in with the ham and cheese. I halved the milk and added half cup sour cream. This was very good served over rice.

Pumpkin Bars I

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
I'm giving this a four because I think it's a good starting point. The first time I made it, I followed the recipe exactly and had pumpkin cake, which I wasn't thrilled about. The next time I made it, I halved the powder and soda, used a little less sugar, subbed half the oil for apple butter and doubled the pumpkin. The second batch is to die for. They're dense and moist and delicious. Both times I made them, I used one 9 x 13 and one 11 x 7 pan.

Pumpkin Bar Icing

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
This is a very tasty icing. You can add more cream cheese or more powdered sugar depending on your tastes. This also works well if you melt the butter and cream cheese and then drizzle over bars or cookies.

Baklava

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2009
This is the best dessert I have ever made. Everything about it, from the phyllo to the honey sauce, is so delicate. I used almonds and ground them almost to a powder. I also made one and a half times the sauce. This is good beyond words.

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
I agree with all who say to add worcestershire and/or soy. I will make these again.

Fast English Muffin Pizzas

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
My boys love these. They will eat them however I make them- they like them fresh out of the oven, or as cold lunchbox pizzas to take to school. Terrific idea- thanks!

Butternut Squash Soup II

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
I thought this was a fine way to use up a squash I had, but not memorable enough to make again.

Breakfast Bundles

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2009
I didn't think these sounded particularly good, but the rave reviews threw me- I thought my boys might like them. Unfortunately, the overly sweet cookie with bacon and eggs weren't appealing to them, either. Also, the crunch of the grape nuts felt odd and out of place. .

Honey Bun Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2009
I made this for my sons and they loved it- said it tastes exactly like their favorite honey buns. I used a bundt pan and needed an additional ten minutes cooking time. Make sure not to get the brown sugar mixture near the outsides of the pan- it makes it stick. I halved the icing and it was still plenty. Thank you for the recipe, Jennifer- my oldest son says he wants this for his birthday cake this year.

White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2009
I made a batch of these as written and it was a disaster. They ran all over the place and the cooking temp./time was way off. For the next batch, I wiped the oil off the sheet, added a little baking powder and then baked at 350 for ten or eleven minutes. They were much better this way, but still too sweet. I would halve the number of white chips in the next batch. This recipe needed far too many modifications.

Cake Mix Cookies IV

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
These are edible, though the flavor leaves something to be desired and they are pretty darn gritty. That said, watching my seven year old bake cookies "from scratch" without help from mom is just priceless. This is a great recipe for kids who are just learning to bake.

Pork Chops with Blue Cheese Gravy

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
This is spectacular. I did change it some- evaporated milk and 2% milk, used some flour to thicken it- salt and pepper to taste. Everyone loved this- even the kids. I never would have thought to make a gravy with bleu cheese, but am so glad I did. We served the porkchops and sauce over rice.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
This tastes like your average "meat with cream of something or other soup" dish and the biscuits are no substitute for dumplings. I would not make this again.

English Muffin Hors d'Oeuvres

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2009
I followed Barbara's advice and added black olives. I used low-fat cheese and mayo and these little guys were still very rich and delicious. Thanks for the recipe, Dave!
