Slow-Cooker Posole

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2008
This was very tasty. I used both green and red enchilada sauce. I agree that you don't need all the water. I added a can of corn and a can of pinto beans to reduce the "soupiness"..thus adding more flavor. I served it over brown rice with shredded cheddar cheese on top. This is better than any I've had in the Santa Fe restaurants.

Blue Corn Cornbread

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2010
Simply delicious. I've made it three times and the cornbread was excellent each time. I did have problems pouring the butter out of the baking dish into the cornbread mixture, but was more careful the next time.

Mediterranean Greek Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
Very delicious. I cut back on the amount of oil. I used dry sun dried tomatoes that I marinated in olive oil since that is what I had. Eat all of the salad the first day because it does not keep.

French Onion Soup I

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2008
This is an easy/quick soup. I use Wolfgang Puck's beef broth instead of the condensed beef broth. I also cut the bread into cubes, toast them, and float them in the soup before adding Swiss, mozzarella, and Parmesan cheeses. This makes it easier to eat.

Green Chile Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
Excellent quiche. I needed something quick for an after concert dinner with friends. I used an 8 inch pan and made half the recipe. Since our friends do not eat chilies, I substituted fresh spinach, mushrooms, and onions sauted lightly in 2 Tablespoons of butter. The cottage cheese and baking powder have to be the secret ingredients that make this quiche like none other.

Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2010
The molasses taste is too strong. The next time I try this cake, I'll use 1/2 cup instead of 1 full cup.

Country Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
Tried this last night for dessert with friends as we waited for 2010 to come in. The country dumplings were absolutely the best. Everyone enjoyed them and at the first bite remarked, "this is really good." I followed the advice of others and cut back on the sugar using 1/2 cup brown and 1/2 cup white, and 1/2 cup plus 2 T of butter. Sixteen dumplings were a lot for just the 4 of us, so I'll cut the recipe in half when I make it again for my husband and me. Thanks for a great, easy to make dessert. Note: another recipe on this site called Mountain Apple Cobbler is the same except that it calls for 1 Tablespoon of cinnamon while this one calls for 1 teaspoon. I think the smaller amount is better.

Hermits I

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2009
These cookies are so delicious. Not too sweet, not too bland, but just right. I've been trying various recipes over the years. This recipe is the best I've tried. I wanted to make them as a bar cookie but from the directions I was unsure what size pan or pans. So I made them as a drop cookie -- tablespoon size of dough. I baked them at 350 for 13-15 min. I did not want them to dry out too much. A soft center is characteristic of Hermits.

Fluffy Biscuits

Reviewed: May 5, 2010
The lightest biscuits I've ever tasted. Since I did not have an egg, I omitted it and added 2 T more milk. I've made these biscuits many times, sometimes I use butter, other times margarine, crisco, or butter flavored crisco. Just heavenly.

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2009
Used cinnamon sugar and grandsons loved them. I baked 1/2 of dough at the recommended temp but pretzels did not brown. I stored remaining dough in refrigerator. The next day I baked them at 375 for 10 minutes and they browned nicely. I let them rise before baking. I might use just 8 minutes the next time because the pretzels were a little dry. I will definitely try these again.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2009
Flavor was good, but not enough oatmeal and they spread out too much.

Crackle Top Molasses Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
Delicious cookies with the addition of a 1/4 t of allspice. First time I did not use the full amount of ginger. That batch was bland. Next batch had all the ginger and some allspice. The amazing thing about these cookies is that everyone was picture perfect. A keeper

Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2012
Best Soda Bread Ever! Bread was moist and tender. Used only 2 cups raisins which were plenty. Even though I forgot to put on the timer and the bread probably baked 15 minutes too long, the bread was moist and delicious. It is now my go to recipe for soda bread...and for raisin bread. No leftover to try it as French Toast.
