Homemade Fresh Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2012
Flavor wise and convenience-wise I would give this a 5-Star. But, when I made it yesterday, it took almost 75 min. to bake at 350. Looked it up in Joy of Cooking and recipe almost identical, should be 15 min at 425 then 45 min at 350. Cover the crust with foil to prevent over-browning. Taste is great, spices mild enough to so that majority of eaters will like. Crank 'em up a little for more sophisticated audience.

Applesauce Pork Loin

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2012
Good flavor except I somewhat agree with one reviewer who questioned the cosmetics of the dish. I left my applesauce in big chunks, added some slices of onion on top of the roast before smearing it with the apple mix. The juices it created were very tasty and would make a nice gravy if thickened slightly. Maybe use pink applesauce or tinit with a little red food coloring to give it a more appetizing appearance?

Zucchini Chocolate Chip Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2011
Good recipe as written. Made this yesterday, and even tho I lacked the choc chips and my measurements weren't spot-on, it came out great. Pressed and squeezed the moisture from my zucchini very well before using. Made it into two 8X8 pans so I could share it and the amount worked fine. Hubby and I had it with some Turkey Hill special chocolate flavor ice cream - Yum!

Favorite Banana Blueberry Quick Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2008
Very yummy, made 3 2" high loaves which I froze. That way it's less of a temptation for hubby & I to finish off one large loaf over a weekend! Added a little cinnamon & vanilla as prev. reviewers suggested, used fresh picked blueberries. Looking forward to making it this winter whenever I have overripe bananas in the house, and my frozen fresh-picked blueberries in the freezer!

Aunt Blanche's Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2008
Nice recipe because dough had enough butter in it that blueberries didn't sink to bottom like some recipes. Doubled and made 2 doz (regular size paper cupcake liners). Easy, tasty, not too dry - added vanilla, replaced sugar with 1/2 Splenda, used 1 less egg, fresh fat blueberries.

Light Oat Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
I am giving this bread 5 stars due to its simplicity and excellent results. I followed the recipe exactly after reading the other reviews, but did have to add additional flour each time I made it. Would hesitate to change the recipe though because breadmaking is different on different days. Used the dough cycle, split finished dough into 2, shaped into loaves, in 2 aluminum bread pans about the size of loaf pans, and raised them by turning oven to 150, then turning it off, raising for about 30 min. Baked at 375 for 30 min. starting from the slightly-warmed oven. Browned and sliced like a dream, toasted well, delish!

Aunt Millie's Broccoli Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
This would have been a good recipe if someone would have honestly reviewed the quantity of pepper - there were previous reviews warning about the amount of salt!

Cherry Enchiladas

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2006
Made this exactly as written for Valentine's Day dessert. Was pleasantly surprised when it turned out well and my guests really liked it. (I was afraid it would be too "gooky-sweet"). One thing tho - use an 8"X8" pan, not 13 X 9!

Quick Cassoulet

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2004
Have made this twice. Good basic time-saver recipe, but looked too dry and tasted bland, so added 1 can chicken broth, 1/2 cup dry red wine, and 1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes and simmered it about 2 hours. Mashed the beans a bit before serving to thicken. Turned out tasty. We like a little more "zip" so 2nd time added same extras, but used hot links smoked sausage and omitted the red pepper flakes. Even better!!

Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2004
Very good basic recipe. I ramped it up with the addition of a nectarine, used sweet Vidalia onion instead of green onions, and used canned jalapenos rather than fresh, added 1/2 tsp. salt, grated some fresh gingerroot. It got raves from my guests and my non-fruit salsa-lovin hubby!

Chicken Jalfrezi

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2004
Just now enjoying the leftovers of this savory chicken curry. I made this exactly as written, but used chicken breasts (on hand). My husband enjoyed it as well. If you like Mexican food, or Oriental food, you will enjoy this as well.

Coconut Cream Pie I

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2003
Easy and a real winner! My store didn't have the right size - had to use 2 small vanilla puddings, added the coconut to them, and toasted it for the top. Used Cool Whip Lite since it was all I had, still turned out great and got raves and recipe requests. This forum is the best to exchange recipes and ideas!

Beef, Green Chili and Tomato Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2003
Excellent dish! I made this according to directions, even tho i was a little short on beef. To give it substance, I served it over homemade corn tortilla chips, and topped it with a dollop of sour cream. Really gave it a southwest flavor! Will make again and again.

Bacon Cheese Puffs

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2001
Yes this is the best all-time hors d'oeuvre ever. Add some horseradish instead of the mustard and a dash of sherry, and you will pump up those delicious flavors even more!
