Peach Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2012
So easy! I did take the recommendation to sub in 1/2 brown sugar and 1/2 sugar instead of a full cup of white sugar. I turned off the oven when cooked and let 'set'. I did not do the lattice work as I only had 1/2 package of Pillsbury pie and put vanilla ice cream on top. I got a 5 out of 5 thumbs up from picky eaters. Will be a staple recipe in my arsenal. My prep time was only about 15 mins.

Slow Cooker Cranberry Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
I made this per the original recipe and followed all the directions as written. The flavor was good but the presentation lacks. The cranberries break down and are lost in the dressing. I now know why there is no picture of this recipe once finished. Very uber easy to throw together and forget for 6 hours. I will be using all the leftover chicken for possible chicken enchiladas as my guests didn't eat much. I would suggest making homemade cranberry sauce but I couldn't as cranberries are in our markets here yet. I used the store brand and wished I used the name brand. Maybe some of the cranberries would have stayed whole.

THE BOMB! the richest most buttery, moist corn bread ever. more like a bread than any other recipe for corn bread I've ever made. A huge family and friend hit - no more mixes for me.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2011
These are the best muffins I've ever made. I used fresh really large blueberries and doubled the recipe for a larger quantity. I did add a splash of vanilla altho I don't think it's necessary. These will stick to the muffin tins so I used paper liners. I didn't double the topping and still had about 1/2 of the recipe remaining and I thought I was liberal with the topping. Note: the batter will be the consistency of glue! Blueberries stay put and don't melt to the bottom. I only had fat free 1/2&1/2 and it worked fine. Next time I will try buttermilk. These are bakery quality and I can't wait to try other berries in season and dry berries when not in season. Light and fluffy. Note: the topping is what sticks to the pans, not the muffin. You don't need to 'mix' this batter for more than a minute, it mixes very quickly and can be overworked if you do overmix. Can't wait for the family to come home and try these out!

Spinach Basil Pesto

Reviewed: May 31, 2011
WOW, terrific and so easy to make. I would reduce the salt or completely omit when making again. I used the recipe as written and used all fresh ingredients. I will freeze the remained in ice cubes as suggested, this recipe made about 2.5 cups.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
Very smooth and creamy. I used freshly grated parm cheese and loved the flavor. I would say that this recipe makes far more than 4 servings. Probably closer to 8 and I use lots of sauce on my pasta. Next time I make it I might add a bit of fresh chopped basil to the pasta. I used fat free half and half and it turned out very creamy and rich. A real keeper!

Creamy Spinach

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2010
no more searching for creamed(y) spinach, this is THE one! I used the recipe as it, no substitutions unless you consider fat-free 1/2&1/2 a sub. FANTASTIC. I used this as a side dish to baked lemon chicken and had more than enough for 6 people. The small amount of bacon really gave this the kick spinach needs to not be so bland. I was quite liberal with the salt and pepper also. This is going to be a staple!

Cowboy Cookies III

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2009
I have an ancient Cowboy Cookie recipe which has been a family fave for several generations. As it has shortening, I opted to try this recipe, many of the ingredients are on target. I used the recommendations of many and increased the vanilla to 2 t., reduced the sugar to 3/4 c. and increased the choc chips to 2 c. (no brainer here) also cooked at 375. A bit disappointed in the results, but will try again as I think the oatmeal I used really took over the recipe. (Coachs Oats, 100% whole grain oatmeal) In days of old, I used the classic quick oatmeal found in most markets. My old recipe differed this way: 1/2 c shortening, 1/2 c. oleo (margarine), 1.5 C. flour, 3 cups quick oatmeal. All other ingredients are the same. Just didn't get the texture and flavor that made these cookies our family fave for so long. Also, I only was able to get 4 dozen cookies of this recipe, but I use 2 ice teaspoons and made good sized cookies.
