Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2008
I received a handy-me-down bread machine and wanted to try it out to see how it worked. The recipes in the manual were old and used powdered milk and shortening (Yuck) so I looked up this one. The 1st batch I used 1.5 tsp salt and 2 tsp instant yeast and it was good, but just a tad too salty. The 2nd batch I used 2.25 tsp yeast and melted butter for the oil and only 1 tsp salt and it was great! I didn't have any problem either time with the rise, but the second was higher which I liked a little better. The one with butter tasted a little different but I liked both equally. Oh, and I let the water/yeast foam 10 min. like directed the first time, but the second poured it in the machine, layered the oil, flour, with salt on top and pushed start. My machine had a 15 min. wait before mixing automatically so that worked out just fine! (Black & Decker B1600) As a freebee its doing great with THIS recipe!

Cabbage Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
The cabbage/veggies is excellent! I followed the recipe 1st time but adjusted since. It was too sweet! So no sugar! Added a splash or two of chili powder 2nd time and canjun seasoning the third. Both times were good. I also left out lemon juice but upped the mustard a little. The kids liked it with some shredded cheddar, hubby and I like it with some coleslaw on top. (Carolina style) Now its the way we like it. The cabbage makes it a healthier and tastier alternative.

Mulligatawny Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
This is a keeper! I tried to stick to the recipe, which would be great, but did kick it up to suit our family's taste. I doubled it. I added a tsp of minced garlic, and doubled the curry. I used half n half. I didn't add the salt and used a low sodium better than bouillon chicken stock with water and used brown rice. I loved it! It was great topped with non-fat yogurt, too. ***made this again, tripled the recipe omitted the flour, use brown rice, milk, and added garlic, and doubled the curry. Pureed then added the chicken and served topped with nonfat yogurt! It tasted amazing, still! And the leftovers will be even better! My daughter has been begging for me to make this soup again since the first time we made it!

Ice Box Fruitcake

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2009
My Grandmother always made this! (NC/SC) She used Graham crackers and all the mixed fruits you put in fruit cake with pecans and cherries. She said you had to make it on Thanksgiving and put it in a wax paper lined loaf pan, then and put it in the freezer until Christmas! My Aunt made it for our family Christmas party and it was sooo good! She said Grandma got it long long ago from a pet milk can. If my Grandma was still alive she'd be over 90. I have also seen a recipe with marshmallow, but she never put those in it.

Mom's Buttermilk Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
I thought these were great! I followed the recipe exactly, except I doubled it and cut them big. I served them with sausage gravy, yum! They aren't quite as salty as some restaurant biscuits, but that was just fine with gravy on them. I might up the salt a tad if using just as a side biscuit to eat plain or maybe add some shredded cheddar. We did not over work them and they were big and fluffy! This is a keeper!

Flounder Mediterranean

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
Excellent! I was eager to try this, just because of all the wonderful ingredients, even though I did not have wine, or fresh tomatoes. I used canned tomatoes and the juice from them, instead. We served it over rice rice and it was oh-so-good!!

Easy Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
This is a great basic recipe, but would be better if you use lard or butter depending upon your taste preferences, as shortening will not add any flavor and be bland. To address other reviewers, self-rising flour has baking power/soda in it and should rise nicely, but if your self-rising flour is too old it will lose its potency. It may have even sat in the grocery store too long. Also, to add sugar to a biscuit is plain WRONG. You do that with rolls.
