Apple Strudel Muffins

Reviewed: May 14, 2009
Delicious! I gave this recipe 4 stars instead of 5 only because I tweaked it a bit. I took the suggestion of other reviewers and added 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/2 tsp nutmeg, also using 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar. I used 2 apples, one chopped (Gala) and one grated (Granny Smith). They tunred out AMAZING. I made 6 regular sized muffins and 24 mini-muffins. My husband could not stop raving about them. These are going to become a staple in my home!

Molly's Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2008
Delicious! My husband and neighbor absoluely loved this. I served it with brown rice and steamed Asian-style veggies. I did end up making extra sauce on the stove. I used the same recipe, just added some flour to thicken it up. It was delicious over the chicken and on the rice. It was a huge hit, I will definitely be making it again! UPDATE: For my second time making this, I used low sodium soy sauce and it was much less salty. I highly recommend doing this. I also added half a sliced onion and about 4 peeled and chunked potatoes. The potatoes were DELICIOUS!

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2011
THE best white cake I've ever had! I've made this twice now and have had rave reviews both times. I used this recipe for my grandmother's 80th birthday cake and she told me that she wants me to make her another one for her Christmas present! To those who complain about it being like cornbread, I have to wonder if maybe your baking powder is bad? I had to throw out one cake because mine had expired. The cake didn't rise and it looked and tasted like cornbread. Problem solved after buying new baking powder! I added about 1/4 cup milk after reading the reviews, but other than that followed the recipe. This is a wonderful cake, thank you so much for sharing your recipe!

Brined Bratwurst

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2009
This recipe is so good! I made this for dinner tonight and my husband and I both loved it. Last time I made brats I used the Beer Brats recipe from this site, this recipe is 100 times better. The onions tasted great, and the brats were delicious. The only thing I changed was browning them in a frying pan instead of grilling them. Will deinitely have the hubby grill them when I make them this summer, but winters in Maine are not condusive to grilling. I will definitely be making this again!

Absolutely Awesome BBQ Sauce

Peppered Bacon and Tomato Linguine

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2010
Excellent! I did as others have said and discarded most of the bacon drippings, just using the thin layer that clung to the pan to saute the onion. I left out the garlic because my father-in-law is allergic. This is a super easy meal that my whole family loved.

Marinated Spicy Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
This recipe was alright, but we didn't love it. It was very tender and moist, so I gave an extra star for that. I will probably try this again, but with a few changes.

Pineapple Cranberry Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2008
Delicious! I couldn't believe how yummy such a simple recipe was. The chicken was very tender and juicy. My husband and I both loved it. UPDATE: My husband was trying not to hurt my feelings when he said he loved this dish. Turns out he actually hates it. But I still think its delicious!

Perfect Berry Shortcakes

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2011
I'm sorry to say this, but my friends and I were not a fan of this recipe. It was very dry and bland. I followed the recipe exactly and the results just were not good. Sorry. (This review is for the shortcakes only.)

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies II

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2009
Amazing recipe! I would give these 10 stars if I could! Yes, the recipe is a bit confusing, but they were worth it. I used 1 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1/2 cup white chocolate chips, I will probably do half and half next time. I also added chopped walnuts. They were chocolate-y without being too sweet. I made them to take to a friends house and they were devoured very quickly. These will definitely be my go-to cookies from now on! Thanks for sharing.

Slow Cooker Lemon Garlic Chicken II

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
This recipe is delicious! I did tweak it just alittle. I added Montreal Chicken seasoning with the oregano and pepper, leaving out the salt. I also ended up adding quite a bit more water and chicken broth. I only have a big crock pot, and I needed enough liquid to cover the chicken so it wouldn't dry out. Also, I added about half a bag of egg noodles for the last 25 minutes or so. Yum! My one year old son loved the noodles, and my husband loved the whole dish. I made the Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce, which I used to top the noodles. I threw the chicken on top of that and voila! I will definitely be making this again and again!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2012
Delicious! I'm giving it 4 stars only because I found the water to be completely unnecessary. I tossed the apples in the sugar mixture and that brought out enough juices that the addition of the water just made it too watery. Great recipe, though! Will definitely be making it again.

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2011
The best meatballs I've ever made! I haven't had a chance to try the sauce yet, but the meatballs are delicious. I pan fry them since my husband likes them to be crispy on the outside. I've taken to dropping two or three into my store-bought sauce while it heats up, which adds a nice flavor to the sauce. I can't wait to give the sauce a try, I'm sure it's delicous!

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2011
Just what I was looking for! I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out delicious. My husband told me it tasted like the inside of a peanut butter cup. I used this to frost chocolate cupcakes (used a family recipe) and couldn't have been happier with the results. Definitely make sure you have a glass of milk handy! Thanks for sharing this yummy, easy recipe.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2010
Delicious! I made this yesterday and we can't get enough of it. I followed the advice of other reviewers and used half a cup of applesauce and half a cup of oil, 2 cups white sugar and one cup brown. I also added craisins and chopped walnuts. Yum! It was so easy to make and everybody loved it.

Buttery Cooked Carrots

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
YUM! I made these last night with steak tips and they were delicious! Even my picky 22 month old ate a few. Just as easy as the SteamFresh veggies I usually make, but so much better!

Pillow-Soft Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: May 13, 2009
This recipe is amazing! I made these for my husband's family a couple nights ago and they were a huge hit! I did end up using quite a bit more flour, but they turned out fantastic. Everyone raved about them, which I thought was pretty good considering it was my first time making rolls from scratch. I'm pretty sure this will become the one thing I am asked to bring to family dinners!

Beer Brats

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
This was very good, although they seemed to just taste like brats to me. My husband really enjoyed them, although after eating his first two he said that something didn't taste quite right. When he got his third, he left off the onions and said they tasted much better. The only change I made was not grilling them, as winters in Maine are not condusive to grilling. Instead I finished cooking them on the stove. I will be making this again, probably with a few changes.
