Chili con Carne II

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
This was my first venture into making chili and it came out very well! I was light handed with the paprika because i figured I could always add more. The cinnamon really adds a special flavor to it. I did halve the cloves because my bf hates them :) We made a TON and we are looking forward to freezing and reheating it for the next few weeks.

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
Delicious and moist with a great corn flavor! Made to go with chili con carne tonight and this came out as a great accompaniment. Not too sweet, nor too heavy; a perfect light crumb. The first time my boyfriend had cornbread and he loved it! Thanks Willow's Mom!

Garden Fresh Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2009
I followed the recipe to a T, including the 4 whole cloves, and used an immersion blender instead of a food mill. It came out sensationally! Much better than any canned soup. My boyfriend didn't like the cloves (next time I think I'll take the cloves out before pureeing), but he added some celery salt and dried basil and loves it. Thanks Charlotte!

Mrs. Sigg's Fresh Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
This was phenomenal! I messed up a bit by letting the mixture sit for a little too long in my pie crust and then it sloshed all over the place when i tried to put it in the oven...other than the lack of beauty because of my own mess up, it was delicious!

Easy Vodka Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
Fabulous! A cinch to put together - I was able to study and check on the sauce in intervals. I made the stated serving size amount and froze it in quart size zip lock bags for when we don't feel like cooking during the week. To my amazement it reheated with the same flavor and texture as the day I made it! Highly recommended. Thanks for the recipe!

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
This was absolutely fantastically delicious! It was the first time my boyfriend had ever tasted eggplant parm, and he adored it. I had wanted to show him what my favorite Italian dish tasted like, since it's unavailable in the Italian restaurants in Israel, and it came out perfect - like an eggplant parm lasagna. I followed it to a T, just decreased the serving size for 2. Served over pasta it is absolutely divine! Thank you for a fab recipe!

Hearty Hot or Cold Roasted Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
This came out terrible for me. Giving it three stars because it was the first time I had tried to make a soup this way, and others said it came out well for them. I loved the idea of roasting the tomatoes first, but it came out too liquid and tasteless.

Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2009
This is an ok muffin recipe, nothing outstanding. The boyfriend loves them though because they aren't sweet, so that makes them good! :)

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2009
This is a rather straightforward recipe - it just came out a bit thicker than we like, and had a strange texture. I added milk until it was the right consistency for us. Added a pinch of cinnamon and tsp vanilla per personal preference. Good and simple. Thanks for the recipe!

Quick and Easy Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
Perfect brownies! Followed recipe exactly except I cut the flour to 1 c per other reviews. My boyfriend LOVED them, and he hates sweet stuff. He took them to work today and they were devoured. Just the right amt of fudginess. Thank you for this great recipe!

Broccoli in Roast Chicken Drippings

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
This was convenient and very easy! I cooked the broccoli for 10 min in the drippings from my roast chicken. Next time I will degrease the juices first to cut down on fat. Thank you for a great idea!

I love this frosting as is, and half butter/half shortening! It colors so well, pipes easily, and spreads smoothly. Thank you for a great recipe!

Four Egg Yellow Cake

Reviewed: May 22, 2009
This is my favorite yellow cake recipe! It's so moist because of the shortening and bakes to a tall beautiful cake! Very easy to ice as well. I highly recommend following directions to a T. It always comes out well for me!

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: May 22, 2009
I love to pipe this on chocolate cupcakes. It is so very fudgy and chocolate-y, hard to believe that it's cocoa powder and not real melted chocolate. Delish!

Lemon Filling

Reviewed: May 21, 2009
This filling is great! I use it every time I make a yellow cake, and I have no problem with it going out the sides of the cake. A trick I use is to make a "barrier" around the edge of the bottom layer with butter cream, and only put filling in to the edge of the butter cream ring, not over. Happy Baking! Thanks for a great recipe!

Italian Dressing Mix

Reviewed: May 20, 2009
I cut this in half since there's just two of us, and did not have any garlic salt so I subbed garlic powder, skipped the onion powder and thyme (didn't have them) and it came out great! I sprinkled a bit of Parmesan into the finished dressing and used it for Cold Tuna Macaroni Salad (on this site.) Thanks for a quick, simple, delicious recipe!

Cold Tuna Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: May 20, 2009
This was delish, reminds me of the pasta salad my Grandma makes. I didnt have any Italian dressing in the house, so I used "Italian Dressing Mix" from this site and it came out great! Very flavorful. I also threw in a diced cucumber for something extra. Thank you for a yummy salad. My bf couldn't stop eating it!
