Banana Nut Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2009
Really good, I used butter pecan cake mix, an extra egg, and added 1/2 teaspoon each vanilla and cinnamon. I'll definitely make this recipe again, and may try a glaze on top next time.

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
This just finished cooking literally a minute ago and the smell in the kitchen was so good, we couldn't wait to eat it- so we're standing over a hot pan eating it, trying not to burn our mouths lol. It's really good, but I made some changes- used 12 lightly toasted slices of cinnamon swirl raisin bread, only 3 eggs, 1/2c milk and 1.5 cups flavored coffee mate (the caramel apple and cinnamon bun flavors), 1/4c white and 1/4c brown sugar, left out the vanilla and used a splash of rum extract and a dash of nutmeg. The texture is great (not too soggy or dry), and it did puff and get nice and golden...I also sprinkled a bit of sugar on top before baking. I'm sure it would be great with ice cream or a sauce, but I don't think it'll last long enough to see.

Slow Cooker Lentil and Ham Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
This was a great basic recipe, but I made some changes to suit our tastes- it turned out fabulous. I cooked this on the stove for an hour (I was pressed for time); added a can of diced tomatoes instead of tomato sauce; left out the celery and carrots and added 1/4 of a bell pepper & only half an onion; ignored the part about the spices and added chili powder, pepper, salt, and basil to taste, plus a few dashes of hot sauce at the end. I couldn't give this 5 stars because I made so many changes to the original recipe, but it's a great template to work with.

Apple Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
This had a decent flavor. I added less nutmeg and more cinnamon, and used granny smith apples. I'm not sure why, I just wasn't impressed with this pie. I may make it again but replace the flour with cornstarch, and add some pecans.

Meringue II

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
My first time making a meringue, and it turned out beautifully. I used it for Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie (recipe on this site), and it's perfect. I made the pie this evening, and we're already starting to eat it...if there's any left, I'll check in the morning to see if there's any weeping. The meringue layer separated from my pie, but I think that's because the filling had cooled by the time I got the meringue made...apparently, it's best to put on the meringue when the filling is still hot. Doesn't take away from the presentation or flavor however, and that was my mistake, so this recipe still gets 5 stars!

Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
I've never really like lemon meringue pie, but this was great. I did add the juice of another half a lemon and am glad I did- the tart/sweet ratio is just right that way. The texture was great, flavor was wonderful, I'll definitely be making this again. I used the Meringue II recipe from this site, and it turned out perfectly.

Picadillo

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
I loved it, and was surprised at how well everything went together, especially the raisins and olives. I used ground turkey because that's what I had, and it still turned out great.

Mexican Pinto Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
I added some extra things to spice my beans up, but this was a great basic recipe- much easier than soaking them overnight.

Sirloin Tips and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
Very good, I served it with rice. I didn't add the wine, and used fresh mushrooms. I also dredged the meat in flour, and I think that's what made my gravy nice and thick.

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
Really easy, and tasted great. I did alter it a bit by not adding as much water (I used 2/3 cup), and only putting in 2 tbsp of brown sugar and 1 tbsp white- that was plenty. I also only added a few sprinkles of cinnamon. Next I'm going to try this with pears, and may even add in a few strawberries :)
