Supreme Strawberry Topping

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2010
This recipe was awesome. The only change I did was squeeze 1/2 lemon in it to a add vitamin C so I could can it in a water bath afterwards. It was so yummy on our creamcheese pie (from here) and we had leftovers on ice cream weeks later.

Italian Style Meatloaf I

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2010
YUMMMYYYY! I used meatloaf mix instead of beef, 2 cups of cheese, and fresh plum tomatoes skinned and diced and real garlic instead of garlic salt. This was really good!

Meat Loaf Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
We love this! The only thing I do that is different is I do not use a pie crust. I put it in a pie pan, meat first, then corn, potatoes and top it with cheese.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2010
This was really good. I had a lot of a spiral ham left so I went ahead and made the broth from it. I also added green beans near the end and I used evaporated milk and to thicken the soup even more I added 2 packs of instant potatoes (great thickener too) because I didn't want to add more flour and butter (only used 5T each). Also my ham was so incredibly salty that I didn't add any salt to this recipe at all-or the stock when I made it. I ended up with about 10qts of soup when all was said and done.

Rosemary-Scented Pork Loin Stuffed With Roasted Garlic, Dried Apricots and Cranberries and Port Wine Pan Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2011
This was awesome. I didn't do exactly as written. I used garlic powder instead of 16 cloves garlic. I did 3 slits instead of just one. I used Riesling instead of port. I will not go out and buy ingredients when i have perfectly good substitutes. I did this on a 2.5 lb roast too rather than a 8lb. We had seconds and thirds! I served with white rice this was so yummy!

Grilled Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
This was really good! I didn't have dijon mustard I used spicy brown and I also used thighs and legs instead of breast. I have it in my recipe box and will make again.

Classic Pot Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2011
This was good. I am not normally a fan of pot roast but this didn't have the typical smell while cooking and was tasty. I didn't add the potatoes because I only had 2 and wanted them mashed for the gravy. I also used regular stewed tomatoes cause I didn't have Italian but added some oregano and thyme.

Buttermilk Honey Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2011
YUMMY! I don't have a bread machine... I just mixed the dry and added the wet and used my kitchen aid mixer. I was in a hurry so I microwaved the buttermilk to 120 degrees. I used oat flour instead of whole wheat...I did have to add almost a cup of extra white flour but it was raining out so my air was extra moist.

Creamy Vanilla Ice Cream

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2011
I made this according to directions except just as I was cooling it I added 2 chopped up Dove candy bars. THIS WAS SO GOOD!! Everyone loved it. I am making it again today along with the cinnamon ice cream. I also made it without the chocolate and made the mistake of switching the measurements for the cream and half and half...it didn't set up as nicely as the chocolate where I did it correctly. Lesson learned...It was still great tasting though-it just froze harder and took longer to set up in the freezer.

Cinnamon Ice Cream

Reviewed: May 5, 2011
I loved how creamy and thick it was. My son and I like the cinnamon flavor, but it wasn't a hit with others in my family. I have taken the recipe and not put in the cinnamon and used it for vanilla ice cream and with that added 2 Dove chocolate bars when I took it off the stove for chocolate ice cream. So good! Uses less cream too, which is more expensive than half and half.

Baked Ziti with Sausage

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2011
THis was really good. It is so much better than the boring Ziti I have been used too. I didn't do the sausage part because I didn't have any pulled out, but it was still good!

Delicious Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2011
These were really good. I did add about 1/3 of a cup of chopped almonds and should have removed 1/3 of a cup of oats so they were a little bit crumbly-but that was my fault not the recipe. I also used Bing Cherry Jam from the Ball canning recipe book with 1/2t of almond extract added to it. Great flavors. My husband said he didn't care for them, though he had no problem eating them. He said he didn't like the cherry flavor-whatever, he likes it good enough in his yogurt. He just isn't into fruity desserts.

Cottage Pudding (Cake for Strawberry Shortcake)

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2011
GREASE AND FLOUR YOUR PANS!!! It just says grease in the instructions. I had to make a second double batch because it stuck to the both pans. BUT ~~~This was so good! I doubled the recipe because I was going to do more of a double layer cake presentation with strawberries and whip cream. My son wants it as his birthday cake with frosting (not a berries and whip cream kind of kid). It did take longer than the time it says, but then again, I had to lower my oven temp by 25 degrees because I was using darker non stick pans.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2011
These were awesome! I did everything like listed except I did add 1t vanilla and used whole wheat pastry flour instead of white (good time to slip it in with the peanut butter being so strong). I think there could stand to be 1 less teaspoon of soda, my cookies are kinda falling apart because they are too airy. For 1 cup of brown sugar you shouldn't need more than 1t of soda. Crumbly and all these are great tasting cookies...

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2011
I liked this cake, it wasn't very sweet, I used a basic cream cheese frosting... I did manage to try and make it healthier...I used 1/2c palm sugar, 1/2c demerara sugar, 1/2c organic sugar and replaced vegetable oil with coconut oil then 1 cup whole wheat white flour and 1 cup cake flour...I should have just done all whole wheat flour since it is a heavy cake anyway and spiced up with Cinnamon. I didn't add the raisins since we don't care for them in cakes and used pecans instead of walnuts. I probably used 2.5 c of carrots too that were shredded on the thicker grate. I also made the cake the day before so everything had time to meld together.

Cracked Sugar Cookies I

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2011
These were so good! The dough tastes as good as the cookies...The only thing I did different was substitute half the ap flour for freshly ground white wheat. Can't wait to try them with whole wheat pastry flour!

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
These were really good! I only changed 4 things, I used 3/4c yogurt and 1/4 coconut oil and carob chips instead of chocolate chips. Because I used freshly milled flours (soft wheat and oat groats) I let the flours soak in the yogurt to soften up the bran for 30-40 minutes. Works perfectly!

Baked Potato Soup I

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2012
excellent! I used skim milk and atleast 10 cups to the rue amount they gave and it was very thick still. I did try and smoosh some potatoes with the masher but they just stuck to the bottom. I used a lot of little potatoes, a measurement by pounds instead of just 4 large potatoes would be nice.
