Emma's Belgian Waffles

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2011
My husband and I both thought these waffles were easy to make, but the taste and texture were just average/good, not great. They looked great, but were too "cakey" for our taste, and the flavor was nothing exceptional. We like the ones that are crunchy on the outside but moist on the inside.

Wheat Germ Whole-Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2011
Loved them. Fluffy, moist, not dense and flat like other whole wheat pancake recipes I've tried. Full of flavor, almost nutty. I didn't have wheat germ on hand so I used wheat bran and they turned out great. The wheat bran gives it a chewy texture that I liked. It's my go to whole wheat pancake recipe now.

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2011
Followed the recipe to the "T" and it was moist and delicious. Slightly sweet but not too sweet. I made half the pan into jalepeno cheddar cornbread by placing sliced fresh jalepenos on one half at the beginning of baking, then adding cheddar cheese for the last 5 minutes. This has made it into my go-to list.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2010
Using other reviewer's recommendations, I used only 2 cups total of sugar (1 white, 1 brown), since my family typically likes things a little less sweet than the average person. I didn't have walnuts, so I toasted 1 cup of pine nuts instead, and added them. What a delicious surprise! I hope you will try it. The bread was moist and very delicious. Next time, I will try it with just white sugar instead of the mixture of white and brown, as well as add a little less cinnamon and vanilla to see if it helps draw out the zucchini flavor more. I felt like the cinnamon was really overpowering. The absence of zucchini flavor was the only thing I felt needed some improvement, even though I realize that in general, there is not going to be a strong zucchini flavor in most zucchini breads. Still, I would prefer to taste a little bit of what should be the star of the show. If I didn't see the little specks of green, I wouldn't know there was any zucchini in it at all, which I guess is a huge plus for parents with kids! Overall, a perfect technical recipe, and easy to adjust to your own taste!

Chicken With Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
I followed the previous suggestions to pre-saute the mushrooms and add cream of mushroom soup. I also felt that the chicken would have been bland without some seasonsing, so I did salt and pepper the chicken directly as well. It turned out so yummy in a stick to your ribs kind of way. We served it with a side of egg noodles.

Pork Tenderloin with Dijon Marsala Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
Very delicious. I would have preferred a little less Dijon and cream, but my husband loved it just as is. 40 minutes was the perfect amount of cooking time. The meat was cooked thoroughly but was still very moist and delicious. I browned some Yukon Gold potatoes at the side time I browned the pork, and roasted them in the same pan with the pork for a delicious side dish.

Hot German Potato Salad III

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
For me, this turned out very dry but still good. However, I believe that may be because the recipe doesn't specify the type of potato, and the russet potatoes I used were fairy big. Also, after I fried the bacon, it just didn't look like I had enough residual grease to make a dressing, so I even doubled the bacon, and still didn't have enough moisture for the amount of potatoes. This may be because of the brand of bacon I used. For these reasons, I am still giving this 4 stars. Side note: a couple of days after, we took the leftovers and added some mayonnaise to spruce it back up. The potatoes had soaked in the flavor from the dressing, and it was doubly delicious!

Strawberry Butter Cracker Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
I really wanted to like this recipe because the crust was reminiscent of a Pavlova, with the addition of nuts. It turned out fine and looked beautiful, and everyone finished their entire piece of pie, but the comments I got back from my family were just, eh.

The Old Boy's Strawberry Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
I accidentally reviewed this recipe instead of another, and am unable to delete a rating/review completely off the system, so I gave it a 4 star to be consistent with it's current average score.

Lite Carrot Cake

Reviewed: May 24, 2009
This was as good as I expected a healthier version of Carrot Cake to be. My husband and I enjoyed it with some homemade almond agave nectar low fat cream cheese. My only negative comment is that it was really dry, and spreading the cream cheese on it caused it to fall apart easily. However, the flavor was good and we appreciated that it was a healthy alternative. It lasted quite a long time in the refrigerator, over a week.

Hasenpfeffer (Rabbit Stew)

Reviewed: May 24, 2009
My first time cooking rabbit. It was perfect. We served it with a side of potatoes, crusty French baguette to sop up the gravy, and a simple spring greens salad. It brought me back to when I first had rabbit in the South of France. I did add a few mushrooms about an hour in to cooking as the previous women did, because I had some laying around, and it was very good, although I'm sure it would've been great without them too.

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
This was delicious and very easy to make. It was almost like a biscuit consistency when it was done. It smelled wonderful and tasted great. I did add about 1/2 cup of raisins and about 1 T of caraway seeds. The previous reviewer who said that you don't need to make all of the basting liquid on top (butter and buttermilk) was right. I cut it in half and still had a lot left over. Looking forward to having it for breakfast!

Colcannon

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
I had never made colcannon before. It's delicious. I did take some liberties with this recipe because my computer died before I could print out the recipe, so I was relying on my memory and tried to incorporate some of the suggestions previous reviewers made. I sauteed the cabbage in about 2 Tbsp. butter with two slices of country bacon. I added a heavy pinch of salt to the leek and milk mixture. I pureed everything together quickly at the end in a food processor (be careful not to over mix, because this will make it a pasty consistency). I only added about 1/4 cup of butter at the end, as well as salt to taste. I also took the two slices of country bacon that I used to flavor the cabbage, cut them into a small dice and crisped them up in a frying pan and sprinkled them on top. The flavors were deep, rich, sweet and salty. It was wonderful.

Spinach Dip with Water Chestnuts

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
This was very good. I think I would have enjoyed more spinach in it though.

Spicy Bean Salsa

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
I thought this was just average. It was fine, just didn't wow anyone. I didn't like the Italian dressing personally; would have rather used some fresh garlic, cilantro, olive oil and lime juice. I think that would draw out the flavors more than mask them. It was pretty to look at but bland to my palette.

Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
I've made this pie crust several times and it always turns out good. I've even substituted half butter, half shortening OR even all butter and it turned out good.

Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
My dad loves pecan pie so I was excited to make this for him. He thought it was just "eh". He likes the consistency of the corn syrup-based pecan pie better, and I'd have to agree. Maybe we're creatures of habit, but the consistency of this pie was just a little weird for me. Too soft. I added more pecans as many of the reviewers suggested, and still felt like I didn't get enough of the pecan flavor. The corn syrup-based fillings seems to bring out the pecan flavor better for some reason, even though I don't like the idea of using corn syrup. Not a bad recipe, just not for me.

Super Sausage Gravy

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
Honestly, I didn't taste anything outstanding about this recipe. It was pretty basic. Good, but not memorable. I felt like it needed more seasoning.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
I followed this recipe to the "t". I kid you not, after everyone put the spoon in their mouth, all four of them said "WOW". It was hilarious. I will definitely be making this for many years to come.
