Easy Turkey Gravy

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2012
I thought this recipe was outstanding and pretty simple to handle while simultaneously trying to cook about 6 other things on Thanksgiving. My sister is not a gravy fan but even she thought it was delicious. We were looking for a good flavor that did not call for giblets and this recipe is definitely the winner.

Graham Cracker Crust I

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2012
This recipe works quite well for a basic graham cracker crust. I've used these measurements when preparing a chocolate crust as well, with the exception of reducing the sugar to about 1/8 cup.

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2012
This recipe is excellent. It is almost always regarded with skepticism at first but so far, everyone that has tried it has requested I make it again in the future. It has become a holiday staple with us for the last several years. My only alteration is that I never use store bought cracker or dough crust. I have learned that crust flavor is very noticeable when it is made from scratch, while packaged crusts seem to be ignored in favor of fillings. When I make the crust for this, I follow a standard graham cracker crumb recipe while adding roughly 1/8 teaspoon of cinnamon and a pinch of both cloves and nutmeg. Multiple people have mentioned the tastiness of this crust and it seems to emphasize the spices within the pumpkin cheesecake mixture. I also serve this with real whipped cream as opposed to whipped topping.

All White Meat Meatloaf

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2012
This is the best meatloaf I have ever had. I did not have ground turkey, so I used 1 lb. chicken and 1/2 lb. sausage. I used Panko bread crumbs in place of Saltines and increased the amount to about 1/2 cup. I did not have liquid smoke and intended to throw in some Worcestershire sauce instead but forgot about it completely. In place of garlic salt, I used 1/2 tsp. each of garlic powder and salt. I also doubled the sauce portion. Everyone at the table talked about how great it was through the entire meal. Tonight I will make it for the second time using my mini loaf pan.

Bavarian Cream

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2011
To someone that has never made custard of any kind before, this recipe is slightly confusing. I have made this twice. The first time, I followed all directions and ingredients exactly. I believe I overcooked the custard because I was using a plastic spoon, not a metal one. It is difficult to tell when the mixture coats the spoon, so metal works best. Overcooking resulted in the yolk of the egg scrambling. The second mistake I made was with the straining. The recipe does not indicate which portion to keep when straining and because my egg cooked I had a significant amount in the strainer as well as in the bowl under it. I did not know which part to keep and I believe I used the wrong part of the custard for the remainder of the recipe. My end result was very little flavor and bits of solid pieces in my Bavarian Cream. However, the second time that I made it with the metal spoon, I took the mixture off the stove as soon as the back was becoming coated. I strained it and it became obvious that the portion to keep is the liquid that comes out of the strainer. I used this to complete the recipe and it turned out beautifully. We used the Bavarian Cream to make delicious filled homemade donuts for breakfast. Probably a novice mistake overall, but I feel the author should have indicated exactly what to do after straining the mixture.

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
This recipe is awesome. I use it as a base for other flavors of biscotti too. I love the cranberries and pistachios at Christmas, the biscotti is the perfect color. I have tried this recipe for chocolate with almonds and cranberries with almonds, especially when I don't have almond extract.

Cranberry Sauce Extraordinaire

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
This is a very good cranberry sauce. I made it for Thanksgiving and several people that don't like cranberry sauce said this was outstanding. The recipe makes quite a bit though so if you're not actually feeding 12, you may want to scale it down a bit. I had leftovers that did not get eaten.

Green Bean and Portobello Mushroom Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
This recipe is easy and outstanding. I have made this several times and it always comes out perfectly. Baby bell mushrooms work if you don't have the large ones. Every time I bring it to an event, there is none leftover. The only change I make is omitting the cheddar cheese and topping with French fried onions.

Wild Rice Stuffing Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
My husband is a stuffing snob. I made this for Thanksgiving and he said it was the best stuffing he's ever tasted. I have made it twice since to go with dinners, will definitely make many times more.

Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
This was my first attempt at cooking a turkey. For Thanksgiving, I buttered and basted for several hours and my turkey came out amazing. Very moist and tender. I used a meat thermometer and removed from the oven at 165 degrees. The turkey was done perfectly and we ate it all over the next few days.

Garlic and Onion Burgers

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
These burgers are not just for on the grill! I make these once a week since finding this recipe. The family loves the basil and garlic flavors and the burgers sear up nicely on the skillet with the olive oil in them. I do add one egg and 1/2 cup of bread crumbs to hold the burgers together a little better.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
I made these cookies and followed the recipe exactly. My cookies tasted delicious but were flat. I re-made this recipe the next day, using 5 T of brown sugar instead of molasses and added no water. The cookies were able to be formed into balls immediately after mixing, no refrigeration necessary as other reviews have said. My second batch came out big, soft, and looking just like the picture.
