Autumn Harvest Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
These are so good! Please note this is not a overly sweet cookie. It is nicely spiced, soft and chewy from the oats and craisins (what I used) with a little crunch from the nuts with a slight orange boost. Tastes like Autumn in one little bite. We love them and will prepare them again soon. Thanks for sharing!

Barbecued Alaskan Salmon

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
This will be a repeat here. We all loved it. Followed the recipe except prepared 1 1/2 times the glaze and used all of it while grilling. The salmon flavor shines through the perfectly balanced glaze in the background. Not too sweet or overpowering. Thanks for sharing!

Crusty French Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
Excellent Recipe! Perfect bread. My family (especially my hubby) loved this and has requested it daily. I followed the recipe and had no issues and ended up with a delicious, crusty outside, soft inside bread. I will definately be making this often. Thanks for sharing!

Apple Cider Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
Flavor was good and the texture was light and soft. I'm not sure what I did wrong and I believe I followed the recipe exactly (except sprinkled quite a bit more cinnamon on top) but my biscuits did not rise that much at all. I doubled checked everything and the baking powder is less than a month old. The flavor and texture is good and I have very fresh apple cider that I purchased a few days ago, so I will try again. Thanks for sharing!

All-Day Apple Butter

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
This is one of the best apple butter recipes I have ever tasted. We love it! I only had about 2 1/2 pounds of apples (after peeling and coring) and adjusted the servings and followed the recipe. The smaller crockpot that I used for this cooks very hot, even on low. The whole process was complete in approx. 9 hours. After taking the lid off the last hour, I used a whisk and it worked perfectly resulting in a smooth, dark, very flavorful apple butter. I will be making it again very soon. The first batch is almost gone! Thanks for sharing!

Country Style Fried Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
Excellent! Everyone loved them. I had left over baked potatoes from dinner the night before so just peeled and used those. This really made preparing these quick and easy. The garlic powder and paprika is perfect. Thanks for sharing!

Lacy Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
We love these cookies. Followed the recipe except baked them on an ungreased sil-mat and they were perfect. I found that if you press them down slightly with your fingers before baking, they bake more evenly. Left half of them plain and played around with dipping the rest in chocolate and folding some of them around a wooden spoon handle. They were pretty and tasted so good. These were fun to make and we will enjoy them again. Thanks for sharing!

Ranch Dressing II

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
Good Dressing or Dip! Used it as a "dip" for Bacon Cheese Fries and it worked out great. Flavor is much better than bottled. I would use the buttermilk or replace a portion of the sour cream with the buttermilk to use it on a salad due to the thickness. We enjoyed this. Thanks for sharing!

Harvest Pumpkin Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2010
Brownies, Cake, Bar, etc.. Whatever you call this, it is a wonderful recipe! Perfectly spiced, allowing the pumpkin to shine. Moist, but not heavy or dense and rich, but not overly sweet. Just perfect as written. I don't have a 15"x10"x1" but did find a 15.25" x 10.25x .75" and used that plus I got 24 mini cupcakes. I doubled the frosting, using 8 oz of cream cheese instead of 6 oz (just to use the entire package) and it is a perfect match. Again, not overly sweet. Kids and hubby all loved these and we will enjoy them often this fall and over the Holidays. Thanks for sharing!!

Italian Sausage, Peppers, and Onions

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2010
Delicious. We loved it. Followed the author's advice and used half sweet and half hot Italian Sausage and it was excellent. I also used a mix of green, red, orange and yellow bell peppers (pers pref) and vidalia in place of the yellow onion. We all loved the addition of the basil and oregano and thought the amount of these herbs was perfect. My son put his on Italian Bread and my daughter and I ate it as is. Excellent dinner. Thanks for sharing!

Macaroni And Cheese II

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2010
It was just two kids and myself this evening and I was originally looking for a stove-top mac and cheese (without Velveeta) to quickly throw together when I came across this recipe. This is very easy and super fast with pretty good results. I added approx. 6 oz. freshly grated sharp white cheddar cheese and left out the bread crumbs and didn't bake it. Just cooked and drained the pasta, mixed the sauce (plus the cheddar cheese) poured it over the pasta, stirred and left it on low for a few min while finishing up the rest of the meal. Worked out great. I also added lots of black pepper and a little dry mustard right before serving. I would use this again for a very fast, easy side when we are craving mac and cheese and I don't have any of the blue box mac and cheese in the house. Thanks for sharing.

Oatmeal Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2010
Made these for one of the grandkids to take to school at the last minute. Very easy recipe that resulted in a delicious cookie! Lightly crunchy outside, nice and chewy inside and excellent flavor. Followed the recipe except copied Naples34102 review and substituted fall colored M&Ms for the chips. This worked out great. Thanks for sharing!

Harvest Pumpkin Cupcakes

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2010
I made these for Recipe Group and they are Outstanding!! This is the best Pumpkin Spice Cake and the icing is to die for. Definately one of our favorite pumpkin recipes that we have ever tried. The cake is moist, tender, perfectly spiced, not overly sweet and best of all - you can really taste the pumpkin. The spices and sweetness do not overpower the pumpkin flavor. The orange buttercream is delicious and is a perfect match. I followed the recipe with the exception of using reg Pure Vanilla Extract (not the 100% Pure Bourbon Vanilla) and would not change a thing. This recipe will be used often, not only during the fall/Holidays, but all year. Our new favorite. Thanks for sharing!

Double Quick Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2010
Hubby requested a "plain" yeast dinner roll to have with soup this evening and I am happy to have found this recipe. Very quick, very easy and exactly what we were looking for. Because we wanted a plain flavor bread, I omitted the onion powder. I also proofed the yeast with the sugar for 10 min. and then continued on with the recipe as written. The result was a nice light textured, lightly flavored roll that could be served for dinner, breakfast with butter/jelly or lunch, used as a small sandwich roll. As another reviewer mentioned, you almost expect a muffin texture because of the shape but are pleasantly surprised by the soft, yeasty roll. I know I will use this recipe often. Thanks for sharing!

Peppery Cheddar Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
Followed the recipe with the exception of adding in a little more cheese than called for. The tender texture of these muffins is excellent. The next time I make these, I will go with other reviews and add garlic powder, onion powder, more salt, etc... They are a little bland as written. Hubby and kids said they liked them but wished they had a little more flavor. We did enjoy trying the recipe and will make them again with some added spices. Thanks for sharing!

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
This is a wonderful Bread Pudding! Everyone that tried it loved it and my MIL asked for the recipe (never happens!). I followed other review and used Pepperidge Farm Cinnamon Swirl Bread. I'm not sure if I purchased the correct bread because the slices were thin and using only 6 slices with 4 eggs and 2 cups of milk was just not enough bread. I used nine slices and I will do the same next time except back the eggs down to 3. It was just a little too eggy for me. I included the raisins and thought it a great addition. The amount of cinnamon and vanilla were perfect for us. I will make this often with the little tweaks mentioned. Thanks for sharing!

Hearty Hamburger Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
My family really, really liked this soup. We prefer a heartier soup so I added more veggies, barley, and a couple potatoes. I was a little nervous when I first tasted the broth, about 30 min into the simmering. It was a tad bland. After reading a few reviews, I added a little garlic powder, onion powder and more salt (I used Low Sodium Beef Stock) and pepper and covered it back up and waited to taste it again after 1.5 hours. Perfect! All the flavors had had a chance to develop and it was delicious. This will be on the menu this fall and winter. Thanks for sharing!

Classic Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
Perfect Chicken Noodle Soup every time. I follow the recipe, leaving out the peas (personal pref) and adding a little more veggies and egg noodles, as we like a heartier soup. The Rotisserie Chicken gives the Fast Chicken Soup Base more depth of flavor than other recipes we have tried. Everyone (including my 1.5 year old granddaughter) loves this and it is requested whenever soup is mentioned as part of the weekly menu.
