Chinese Spareribs

Reviewed: May 3, 2005
Used this recipe for beef short ribs in my Slow-Cooker and we both thought they were delicious! I'm a new fan of hoisin sauce! Subbed tequila (sorry) for the sake cuz I didn't have any, and used red wine vinegar instead of the rice vinegar. Reduced the spices because of my husband, just a dash of 5-spice pdr and 1/4 tsp powdered ginger. Skimmed the fat off the sauce and served it with rice and salad. Next time, will make coconut rice and bok choy salad to go with it. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!

Pecan Sandies

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2005
A+++++! Remind me of Danish butter cookies. Very delicate cookies and they do melt in your mouth! I used butter instead of margarine, walnuts instead of pecans. My dough was kinda soft so I made drop cookies and sprinkled them with sugar. They looked pretty and were terrific! Good holiday or "company" cookie.

Peanut Butter Chews

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2005
Chewy and delicious no-bake cookies! I made half the recipe and used 2 1/2 cups rice crispies. Put spoonfuls onto large wax-papered cookie sheet, then formed slightly with hands to smooth the balls. Got about 2 dozen. Omitted chips. Agree not to boil corn syrup/sugar more than 1 minute, 'cuz they really hardened up by the next morning! Not just for kids. Why make bars when you can make drop cookies more easily and not have to cut them or mess a pan?

Reuben Hot Dish

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2005
Made half the recipe in 8x12 glass dish (plenty). Boiled the noodles first (drained well). Used leftover corned beef (diced). Used more milk so saucier and added a little horseradish to sauce (less mustard). Tossed cubed rye bread with melted butter and put on top. Baked at 350 for 25 mins and voila! Perfect! We loved it.

Summertime Sweet Pickles

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2005
What is nice is that the pickles stay crunchy, as well as taste great! I omitted the onions. Did not have mustard seed, so used half as much mustard powder. Added 1/2 tsp celery seed and 1/2 tsp dill seed. Used English cukes (one = 1 lb). Added 1/2 cup water cuz seemed like not enough liquid to cover, although the pickles did shrink down. Keep in the frig and eat right away! They won't last long! Highly recommend, and no trouble to make.

Creamy Kielbasa and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2005
Omitted the beef broth, but used all else. After it was done, it tasted like canned soup so I added 1 Tb butter, 1 Tb parsley, and 1 1/2 cups greated sharp Cheddar. My husband absolutely loved it! Creamy and thick (we like it that way). I'd give it 5* but I made so many changes.

Baked Fudge

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2005
Very, very fudgie brownie! It makes a crisp crust on top and ooey-gooey in the middle. I added 1 Tb more cocoa. My husband loved it and said it was so chocolatey. It sets up as it cools, so I recommend cooling it very well before eating. Even better the next day, if it is still around!

Cheese Lovers' Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2005
This is a reply to a reviewer below. To keep your lasagne from becoming watery, drain the noodles very well and blot them dry.

Chicken Enchilada Soup III

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2005
Tastes just like tamales! My husband said "you could make a million bucks" with this - he loved it. I was concerned about the cheese curdling, but followed recipe exactly and it seemed to turn out well (use a good cheese that melts well - I used medium Tillamook). I might try stirring the cheese in at end of cooking next time and see how it is.

Salsa Cheese Boule Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2005
Followed recipe, but baked in a small casserole dish, covered with foil. Stirred it after 30 mins and it tasted pretty bland, so added 1 Tb chili powder and 1 1/2 tsp cumin. Tasted pretty good and consistency creamy at this point. Baked it another 30 minutes and consistency now like cheesecake.

Fabulous Football Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2005
Very meaty and just too heavy for us. Guess we prefer a creamier dip, although it had a good flavor.

Mocha au Lait Mix

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2004
Another great recipe from Allrecipes! I ended up using 6 Tb instant coffee and 7 Tb brown sugar (had to adjust because coffee was strong). Put the choc chips thru food processor so they would be evenly distributed, although the whole chips looked pretty in the mix. Used Tasters Choice Vanilla Roast (decaf) and it was dee-licious! Tied small whisks onto jars with ribbons and gave as Christmas gifts. Everyone loved it! (whisking works, as well).

Oranged Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2004
Made half the recipe, as this makes a lot! For 1/2 the recipe, I added 1/4 c more sugar (it was tart), 2T brandy, and 1/2t lime juice. Simmered it only 30 minutes as this seemed enough. I never cooked my cranberry sauce this long - really good!

Chocolate Icing

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2004
I wanted to use this for my Chocolate Gingerbread cut-out cookies. However, the icing was setting up too fast and forming a crust. So to adjust it for cookies, I added 3/4 cup more powdered sugar, 1 Tb more milk, and 1/2 Tb butter. I was then able to frost all my cookies perfectly well and sprinkled them with clear sparking sugar crystals (please note, the icing gets harder as the chocolate in it cools).

Hot Buttered Rum Mix

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2004
I gave this five stars becuz it is sooooooo good. Made a very few changes - left out the powdered sugar and added a little spice (1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, and 1/8 tsp cloves). Used French Vanilla ice cream (not light) and Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum. Wow! It tasted just like warm eggnog, and that was with hot water, not adding any milk. It was wonderful! Thanks Kevin!

Orange Crunch Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2004
Moist and delicious, but mine didn't really have a "crunch." It seemed done at 50 minutes so I took it out. Added 1 Tb triple sec to the glaze and it was great (highly recommend this). Used 3/4 c vanilla yogurt cuz I didn't have sour cream and added 1/4 cup fresh OJ to the cake. Used dried cranberries and 1/2 c mini choc chips. Poked with toothpick before spooning on glaze. When I turned it out after completely cool, the other side looked rather plain so next time I will make more glaze for the top. I plan on making this one for Christmas!

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2004
Better than my recipe! I had a lot of leftover coconut jasmine rice, so I skipped the first step and used that (cook rice in coconut milk/water). It was really good!

Honey Orange Basil Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2004
Very refreshing. Used fresh OJ and fresh parsley - the parsley made it so tasty and pretty (don't leave out the fresh parsley!). Marinated it overnight and cooked it on the BBQ. Only change was I used dried oregano instead of basil. Will make again.

Scalloped Potatoes for the BBQ

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2004
Loved 'em! Used russett potatoes, which take longer to cook than red potatoes, so I parboiled them whole for 15 minutes first, then sliced them, etc. Subbed dried oregano for the basil. Followed recipe exactly from here. Put the foil packet in a wire basket thingie so it was easier to turn. The potatoes were delicious and even browned!

Classic Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2004
Rich with lots of bran and brown sugar. Added a dash of cinnamon and tossed chopped dates with the flour mixture so they would not clump. Delicious and hard to eat just one!
