Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2012
very good for pulled pork sandwiches. I cut up my own mix instead of using bagged. Cabbage cut into small strips and carrots, onion, and apples grated thinly. During the summer, I often add a few fresh, garden radishes. The apple helps to sweeten it so I cut the sugar down to about 1/3 cup, add a little mustard, fresh cracked pepper, garlic salt, mayo instead of miracle whip and I never have poppy seeds, so I just omit them. Thanks for the great recipe!

Belle's Cheesy Potato Stoup

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2011
a great recipe to build on. I also didnt have onion soup, so I used mushroom and it came out very yummy. I fried up the spam first for some crunch and also added a couple tablespoons of dried, minced onion, garlic and lots of seasoning salt and fresh ground pepper for flavor. cant even tell that the spam is not ham or bacon!

Cheese Biscuits II

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2011
a great from-scratch starter recipe, thanks! all the other cheddar biscuit recipes use biscuit mix...eww! I omitted the peppers and pimentos as well for the sake of family, added a tablespoon of garlic, used margarine instead of shortning because I think that makes all biscuits better, added more cheese and increased the milk to a whole cup so that I wouldnt have to roll them out...just drop them on the tray. Turned out fantastic! A little sweet, so I may decrease the sugar to only 1 tbs next time, though.

RWOP Finalist: French Apple Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2011
a very good recipe that comes out looking beautiful, but poorly written. It fails to to tell you what temperature to heat the sugar and water on. I did medium low and the water just evaporated. When I tried again, I did medium high and finally got it to turn light brown. Be sure to use a nonstick springform pan and/or grease, but either way, the caramel does not stick to the sides well. I thought the batter came out very eggy tasting, so next time, I will either only do two eggs or two plus one white. Also, in case you only have lemon juice and not a whole lemon, the juice of half a lemon comes out to being about 1.5 Tbs.

Cheese Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2011
fantastic twist on baking powder biscuits and just what I was looking for in a crescent without yeast! I used margarine instead of shortning because I think all biscuits are better this way and used the powdered buttermilk with water and they turned out fantastic! thanks so much!

Sean's Falafel and Cucumber Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
an excellant recipe! I love the coriander and cumin in them! but YOU MUST cut the bread crumbs down to 1/2 cup or less, or they completely crumble in the oil! My blender has some trouble with just processing the onion, garlic and parsley so I also added in the oil, spices and some of the smashed peas to form a nice, blended thick paste and then mixed it in with the rest of the peas and other ingredients. I didnt have yogurt, so I mixed a little mayo with cream cheese, ranch dressing and cream until yogurt consistency, omitted the cucs and added in a spice packet and let sit for 30 minutes. It was awesome paired with homemade pita bread, tomatoes, lettuce and radishes...perfect for a hot summer day's dinner!

Chicken and Dumplings III

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2011
was hoping for a more from-scratch recipe. not a fan of the creaminess and dumplings tasted too chemically. for a more homemade version, use a roasted chicken ($4 at the local grocer), remove all meat and set aside. cover the carcas and skins with water and simmer an hour for good brother. remove bones and skin and add more water or brother, garlic, onion and desired spices and veggies. when the veggies become almost tender, drop in your dough (2 cups all-purpose flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/3 cup shortening blended with pastry cutter, add 1/2 cup milk and bring together) by spoonfuls into gently boiling soup. cover and let cook 8-10 minutes. OH YUM and worth every minute extra!

Summer Garden Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2011
I thought it was a bit bland as well, so to give it more flavor, I cooked some bacon and then chicken breast. Then I sauteed onion, the garlic, zuchini and squash in the bacon grease very lightly before tossing it with the noodles, tomatoes, parmesian, cut up chicken and crushed bacon. To make it a little cheesier I added about 1/2 cup of chopped mozzerella and for zest chopped fresh thyme, basil, sage and parsley...awesome hot summer dinner with plenty of leftovers for lunch the next dday!

Bacon Cheese Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
fantastic breakfast alternative to sweet muffins! i followed the review about adding extra cheese (maybe 3 cups?), omitted the lemon pepper and salt in exchange for seasoning salt, added some dried, minced onions and put cheese and bacon on the tops for looks. reheats well, too!

Sweet Corn Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2011
very good. a little sweet for us. decided to sub masa for cornmeal for an all-masa cake, which gave it nice, smoothness and flavor. also in true "Nourishing Traditions" fashion, I soaked the flour in milk and water first. Amazing! And LOVED the real corn in it!

Tuscan Chicken Simmer

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2010
as another said, a very good base recipe to build off of. I used canned chicken and mixed it all, served over whole wheat pasta. agreed with another reviewer by omitting the shredded cheese, as it was way cheesie enough without it. need a little pepper

Fresh Pear Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2010
I followed some advice of others and halfed the spices, added ginger, allowed the spices to sit with the sugar and pears for the hour and then used two eggs instead of 4 whites and baked it a little under time - it came out perfectly moist, evenly spiced with wonderful pear flavor! just what an early fall evening ordered!

Monkey Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2010
VERY good, but I have found it is even better when you make the sticky bun dough froms scratch (like you are making cinnamon rolls). Takes a little more work and time because it uses yeast, but if you do it in your bread machine, it is well worth the extra hour!

Chocolate Truffle Cookies

Reviewed: May 21, 2010
the best chocolate fudge cookies. batter tastes just like brownie batter, so I bet would taste great as brownies as well. when I first made these, I did not have bakers chocolate on hand, so on the heels of another's review that it worked okay with additional chocolate chips, I tried that. They came out really good, but when I made them the next time, I really saw the difference in using the bakers chocolate and TOTALLY worth the trip to the grocery store for it. They set much better and taste more triple chocolatey and less bitter-sweet, if that makes any sense. Also, roll them in powdered sugar for a beautiful look! I cannot wait to try the other suggestions of peanut butter, white chocolate or butterscotch chips!

Peanut Butter Chicken Skewers

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
loved this recipe! was looking for a recipe that a long-lost friend used with thighs and wings and thought I would try this. Worked amazing! I doubled the recipe and simered the sauce as directled and then poured it over two cut up, whole chicken and let simmer for hours in a crock pot until the chicken fell off the bone and then served with rice. AWESOME!

Toffee Bars by EAGLE BRAND®

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
this is the exact recipe that I have been trying to get from a friend but always forget to ask. A couple things to remember, though...the milk does NOT take 15 minutes, more like 5 and to keep the chocolate flavor from overwhelming it, I like to just sprinkle the chips, keeping their shape and not spread them. Thank you Eagle!

Hamburger Buns

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2010
good recipe, but need a very wide cutter (dessert bowl or wide mouthed jar) to get them wide enough for hamburgers. I had trouble with them coming out more like dinner roll size until the 2nd or 3rd time making them.
