Banana Waffles

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2009
This recipe was a hit with my family. I read a few reviews before preparing it and tried some of the alterations. My version used half whole wheat flour, cinnamon, mashed bananas, and a bit of sugar. They were definitely sticky, but it was worth peeling them off the waffle iron. I will be making this recipe again.

Mom's Best Waffles

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2009
Nice, simple recipe. I subbed buttermilk and brown sugar. I also added vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. The batter was thick because of the buttermilk, but my non-stick waffle iron was up to the task. The whole family enjoyed these. We have also made these with self-rising flour. The twos really make this an easy recipe to remember! It really lends itself to variations. Blueberries, pecans, spices, you name it. This has become our regular waffle recipe!

Country Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
I used sausage and colby-jack cheese in this recipe, and also fresh farm eggs which made it even better. The mixture is fairly thick, there isn't much liquid. This concerned me and I thought that I had made a mistake, but it turned out beautifully! Very quick and simple to make. My first guinea pigs were men, and they loved it. The kids will try it tomorrow for breakfast, so we'll see how well it reheats.

Triple Chocolate Cream Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
I made this for a friend's Thanksgiving gathering. It didn't seem like it ever got very firm, but it was a huge hit with everyone who tried it. I also used the chocolate pudding mixed into my whipped topping. My family likes the dark chocolate layer, so we made a pie with just that layer and it was wonderful. I would definitely recommend you use a deep dish pie crust if you make all three layers! The one layer pie fit perfectly into a regular pie crust. Also, substitute a chocolate cookie crumb crust and it's much better. I used chocolate animal crackers, butter, and sugar for mine.

Heavenly Potatoes and Ham

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
This version is excellent and easy to prepare! I prepared this for a taste test, and it earned me a catering job! The only thing I did differently was use bacon crumbles instead of bread crumbs. This is a favorite with my kids, husband, and friends. We will be eating it often during the colder months.

Eggnog Quick Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
This bread has been quite popular with my friends and family! My changes: I added the pkg of vanilla pudding, increased the eggnog by 1/3cup, and subbed oil for the butter. That made for a nice, moist loaf. I also added one 10 oz jar of maraschino cherries; drained and chopped, and 1/2 cup chopped pecans. Stir 1/4 cup of the flour with the cherries and nuts before adding them to the batter. That will help keep them from sinking to the bottom of the pan. If you like eggnog flavor, up the nutmeg a bit, or use freshly grated for a great flavor boost! We make a lot of mini loaves for gift giving. This is one for the recipe box, and we will use it over and over. Thanks!

Chocolate Covered Cherries II

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2011
I've been using this recipe for a few years now and it is always a hit. One easy step to help your fondant be a little less sticky is to chill it before you use it. I also find that just pinching off a bit and molding it around the cherry is easier than trying to roll it out on a counter. Another reviewer also mentioned using powdered sugar to prevent sticking on the counter. Good idea, flour is not good for these delicious candies! Lastly, I use candy coating and chocolate chips together. A ratio of 2-1 works (candy coating -choc chips) quite well. A quick chill to set the chocolate and then one or two weeks at room temp is perfect. I hide mine in a cake pan with a lid so no one is tempted to snitch before they're ready! Thanks for a great recipe!

Homemade Root Beer

Reviewed: May 5, 2013
We (our family) have made this recipe several times now and it is a hit every single time. Even I had to admit my skepticism was misplaced after the first taste. :) We've made it for parties, for fishing trips, and for classroom experiments. The students LOVED the dry ice! We did find however, that six pounds of dry ice made for better carbonation and overall chill factor.

Real Hummus

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2013
I read the recipe update and followed those directions to make my hummus. It was PERFECT. We took it to a dinner party with good friends. Some of the guys there travel extensively with their jobs and they have had a lot of experience with non-American food. They were all very complimentary! Thank you for a great recipe that we will use again and again. (: Btw, the cumin really sets it off!

Lite Italian Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2013
I realized after prepping all my ingredients that we were out of Italian dressing. This recipe saved my salad! We did tweak it a bit. I used only olive oil, we don't use any other vegetable oil. We also used fresh herbs from the garden: sage, thyme, basil, and fresh pressed garlic. I didn't have dried oregano, so subbed a bit of Italian seasoning. The only reason I gave it four stars, was because it was oily (compared to store bought) on the lips and tongue when eating it. This may be because it was a home made dressing, I don't know. I have never made my own before. This dressing went on my quinoa and fresh veggie salad. My friend is gluten and dairy free, and she loved it. Thank you!

Best of the Best Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2013
I made this recipe using coconut oil for butter and coconut milk for the buttermilk. The coconut flavor does not come through and it is an excellent substitute for dairy! I also cut the sugar by 1/4 cup. These muffins were delicious! Thank you for an easy recipe. (:

Grilled Roasted Red Pepper and Ham Sandwich

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2014
This sandwich lends itself easily to variation. Red pepper/garlic mayo gives it a nice zing. Some people don't like or can't eat mayo, so I use a slice of pepper jack cheese instead. Since my sandwiches are cooked on a panini press, I can't put the cheese on the outside (it sticks). My favorite is bread, pepper jack cheese, ham, roasted red peppers, and a sprinkle of grated parmesan on top. Thanks for a great sandwich idea!

Chicken and Gnocchi Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2014
Very good and superbly simple to make. My only changes were to add some thyme and to make a roux for thickening instead of the cornstarch. I have made this at home and at work and it is always a hit. Thank you for a great, go-to recipe!

Restaurant Style Egg Drop Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2014
After reading several reviews and watching the video, I proceeded to make a very quick and simple soup that tastes wonderful! Flavoring the broth with ginger, soy sauce, and scallion worked very well. Also thickening the soup before adding the eggs resulted in nice, flat, ribbony (is that even a word?) eggs. Garnished with green onions, the soup was a big hit. Thank you for an easy recipe that really tastes like your favorite Chinese restaurant!

Mulligatawny Soup I

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2014
This soup was easy and quick. It was also very well liked when I made it. My changes were simple and two of them were due to lack of ingredients. I omitted the apple (didn't have it) and used barley instead of rice (didn't have that either). It also seemed to need more broth and an extra teaspoon of curry powder. Also, it did not need to simmer as long as recommended. This soup only cooked about 35 min altogether.

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2014
Very good and easy to make! I did not use all six of the potatoes. Next time, it would be interesting to try it with the kale although the spinach was very good.
