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!

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.

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.

Barbeque Pork Two Ways

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2009
So good! I only changed the ketchup amount because I didn't want to use 2 cups and use up all my ketchup. I used 3/4C ketchup, 8 oz can of tomato sauce and 1/2 c bbq sauce that I don't like to try and use it. It turned out great!

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!

Easy Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2010
LOVE these! My mom used to make these back in the 80's and she had gotten the recipe from a magazine I think. I am so glad I found this recipe on here! I like to add the lemon zest and juice from one lemon too!

Incredibly Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf

Reviewed: May 19, 2010
This recipe was great! Good to use up the ground turkey that I "thought" was more healthy than ground beef.

Swedish Meatballs (Svenska Kottbullar)

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2012
This was really good. Had to use half and half instead of sour cream and heavy cream and some whole wheat bread instead of white because that is all I had. It was really good with the exception of the meatballs falling apart, but I think it was because the bread I used was a bit denser so it didn't bind well because of that.

Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2009
This is so addicting! I used 3T butter and 3.5 cups of fruit (strawberries and blueberries). Yes it is kinda mushy in the middle, but to me it was kinda more like pudding and it may not have been so bad had the majority of the fruit end up there. It was still really good and I would make it again!

Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2012
Those who ate this loved it! They were upset there wasn't more to eat as leftovers. I used 5 sweet potatoes and I also baked them and then mixed them with the rest of the ingredients. I used a slightly smaller (old pyrex rectangular dish from refrigerator set) because it seemed like 9x13 would be too big. I also only used half the milk called for and I used Japanese Sweet potatoes, they are yellow not orange, but they said they taste the same. I don't like sweet potatoes so I didn't even try it-though they said I should.

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.

Sicilian Pineapple Pork Roast

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2009
I was leary but this was really good! I did lighten up slightly on the rosemary and used fresh sage (because that is what I had). I also used 5 plum tomatoes skinned and seeded because I didn't have the canned. I forgot to add the onion until 1 hour into the cooking but it still all melted into the sauce. For no added liquid, this surely made a lot of juice. I also made mine in a cast iron dutch oven and thickened the sauce with a mixture of corn starch and white wine (2T each). I will most definately make this again.

Maple Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2013
First let me say I hate it when people change a recipe and then rate it poorly. But I did change the recipe however I do love it. I replaced the butter with coconut oil (I'm dairy free), vanilla extract instead of maple extract (didn't have any), replaced milk with almond milk, added 1/2t salt and substituted whole wheat pastry flour for the white flour. I also ditched the sugar and just added a cup of walnuts and about 3/4 c of dairy free chocolate chips and to top it off I made muffins (filled tins 3/4 full baked 20 minutes). These aren't real sweet but that's fine, I wanted a muffin with a lot less refined sugar (so I only had what was in the chocolate chips) and ended up with a much healthier muffin that still is a treat and doesn't taste too healthy.

French Dip Sandwiches

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
My husband LOVED this! I didn't use a roast because I was not going to go buy one just for this. I used smaller pieces of beef since I had coupons to use up and that was the cheapest way. I also threw in the remaining prime rib we had left over from Christmas dinner. He loved the liquid it is dipped in. Now I need to find a beef roast on sale to use for this!

Real Strawberry Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2012
I made this using strawberry jam instead of fresh strawberries...it was great! It wasn't runny, it was how frosting should be. It barely covered a 2 layer 9 inch cake though. Also add a pinch of salt when you mix it, all frostings should have at least a pinch of salt otherwise it tastes like powdered sugar.

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!
