Dark and Sweet Rye Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2001
I found this bread to be one of the best I have ever made. It makes wonderful toast and mine sliced beautifully for sandwiches, contrary to what another rater said (she probably did not knead the dough enough, which will make it crumbly). I like to leave the raisins a little speckled in the bread - too much processing and they disappear. The sweetness causes the top to become a bit dark, but otherwise I love this bread! It slices well and makes wonderful toast.

Cookie Mix in a Jar III

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2001
These are, by far, the best oatmeal raisin cookies ever. My husband loves them. We don't just make them for gifts! They are moist and chewy. These are the absolute best!

Banana Pudding IV

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2001
This pudding is easy to make and tastes great. The husband loved it. Company raved and requested the recipe. I preferred to fold the bananas into the pudding. Also, I used Neufchatel, which is a softer cream cheese, and reduced milk by 1/4 cup. This is now my best banana pudding recipe! Loved it.

Stovetop Banana Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2001
At first, I thought this recipe was a joke, too. It lacks sugar...add 1/2 cup sugar. It also needs twice as much milk...use three cups. Then, it is actually a great recipe!

Magic Peanut Butter Middles

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2001
I made several cookies from this web site this year for gifts, and this cookie was my husband's favorite. My boss requested the recipe. These are excellent. I preferred to make them as balls and not flatten then at all, although I did dip the top half in sugar for a sparkly effect (optional). I liked the big taste of peanut butter that way and they looked good, too. This recipe is a keeper! Thank you for sharing your recipe, Stephanie! These take a little more time, but are the best.

Seven-Up® Cake II

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2002
My husband loved this cake. Because of other reviews, I decreased sugar a little and used only 1 tsp lemon extract. It was delicious. Only problem was it stuck to my nonstick pan (I had sprayed it). Next time will try a greased pan. Tastes like sponge cake. Would be good with a lemon sauce.

Grandma's Slow Cooker Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2003
Very good! My husband loved it. I used kidney beans, vegetarian baked beans, black beans (and liquid), and small white beans. Left out the celery. Cooked it covered on top of the stove about an hour, stirring occasionally. Thought it looked very pretty, as opposed to another reader! Will make this again.

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2003
Very good! Especially using my own home-made refried beans (which I recommend). Good with sour cream and guacamole, and salad. Made half and was plenty. Reminds me of something I made before - mixing leftover taco meat with refried beans and putting them inside a flour tortilla. I will use smaller dish next time so I will get more layers (got 2 in 9x13" pan, halving recipe). Also, I used Taco Bell Taco Sauce.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2003
Very creamy and velvety smooth! One of the best cheesecakes I have ever had - couldn't stop eating it! I made it light - used Neufchatel, 2 eggs and 4 whites, and light sour cream - and it was still delicious! (use 2/3 cup milk with Neuf. as it is a little softer than regular cc).

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2003
Hi - this is Starflower and I submitted this recipe. Just wanted to let you know...you never marinate fish for more than 30 minutes! It is not like meat. Per professional chefs.

Disappearing Marshmallow Brownies

Reviewed: May 11, 2003
Delicious brownies, especially hot out of the oven when the marshmallows are soft. I made both versions of this recipe on this web site, and this is definitely the better of the two. I will make these again!

Disappearing Marshmallow Brownies II

Reviewed: May 11, 2003
My husband liked them, but I thought they were way too sweet and too much choc chips, more like candy. I also made the other version which is on this web site - has a little less sugar and only 1/2 cup choc chips and I thought were much better.

Ham and Cheese Picnic Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2003
Delicious bread! I used Jack and cheddar and was good. Had to refrigerate because it contains meat, and was especially delicious toasted (ham warm, cheese melted). I added 1 Tb more of margarine and sugar. Next time, I am going to try rolling it out and making a roll so the filling appears spiraled. Husband loved it.

Beer Dip I

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2003
This recipe is a keeper! I noticed some people had trouble with lumpy cheese. All you have to do is grate the cheese fine and mix together with the creamcheese in the food processor - let it run until it's smooth. The beer gives it a great flavor, and we love pretzels. The husband said, "don't lose that recipe!"

Spicy Bean Salsa

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2003
Very good! I used 1 cup frozen corn, 3 green onions, 1 cup (increased) red/green bell pepper, 2 green and 1 red fresh jalapeno peppers, 2 fresh diced tomatoes, 1 bunch cilantro chopped, 1/2 tsp cumin, juice of 1/2 lime, and my own oil/red wine vinegar dressing - very good. Could leave out the lime.

Chocolate Zucchini Bread I

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2003
Very good and moist. The melted chocolate was speckled so I recommend stirring it in before adding the zucchini (which was cold). I peeled the zucchini to avoid the "green" look and grated it fine, so hardly detectable. My chips sank to the bottom, as the batter is rather thin. Smaller chips would work better. But overall, delicous and will definitely make it again!

Dad's Excellent Scallops

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2003
Made these this summer. They were wonderful! So easy, and yet elegant enough for company. We made them according to recipe, only brushed them with plain olive oil. Used large fresh sea scallops.

Boscobel Beach Ginger Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2003
Moist and delicious. I thought the batter was not sweet enough, so I added 1/4 cup granulated sugar - I'm glad I did. Also omitted the ginger root as I didn't have it. Might be good with some custard sauce.

Bake Sale Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2003
I've made these many times. This recipe is the greatest, just the way it is! I would suggest trying these just the way they are, before you mess with the ingredients. I made them for a BBQ and people could not stop eating them.
