Northwoods Wild Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2008
I loved this recipe. I made it with a mix of whole grains and double smoked bacon. I made it for the first time when my husbands boss was over for dinner and it was a hit I served it with garlic/sun dried tomato grilled Salmon. Will make again

Gourmet Caramel Apples

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2010
Loved these. Try cutting in pieces to serve. YUM turtles chocolate meets sour apple. The CARAMEL SOLUTION!! Took wax off the apples rolling them through a quick boiling water bath. I did the caramel in the double boiler (just until smooth but not too runny) dipped apples & wiped excess off bottoms and dipped quickly in COLD water (not above the "caramel line") then smoothed caramel with wet hands patted dry on tea towel then put in fridge for 20min I had no problems with caramel coming off the apples. While I did the chocolate in the double boiler I made caramel strings just rolling/pulling excess caramel from pot. dipped cooled apples in dark chocolate rolled in chopped pecans placed caramel strings on apples and then drizzled with melted chocolate from a baggie with tip cut.

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2010
Not my favorite dessert - I always experienced an angle food cake or sponge cake version but had good reviews from those who like this traditional cake. Made individual serving size rounds

Nanaimo Bars III

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
Excellent I'm an Island girl and these are perfect. I reduce the sugar from 2cups to 11/2 cups for the middle layer, just so they are not too sweet. Thanks

Pesto Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2009
Excellent! It was wonderful as a spread on veggies or crackers. I halved the oil and replaced other half with chicken broth. I also followed another review and baked skinless boneless chicken breasts coated in this pesto sauce with grated mozarella cheese on top. Yum! A New family favorite. I served with bow-tie pasta and fresh local tomatoes. Thanks

Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
Pumpkin spice as suggesteed by others, will substitute whole wheat and applesauce for oil next time. Sprinkled with pumpkin seeds instead of streusel for a healthier breakfast option.

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2009
I love these! I didn't ever believe I could do better than the store bought stuff but defiantly worth making at home. I make them with the lemon zest and frozen blueberries they taste great I have made with frozen butter grated and just cold butter no difference in end product to me. Just use whichever I have at the time.

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2013
Love it with a few adjustments as others suggested only 2 tbsp sugar, less flour I add 1 cup at a time until it comes off the side of the bowl then mix on high 5 min and then by hand kneeling in another half cup flour for a total of 5.5 cups. I let rise in a large Tupperware bowl with lid that sits in a sink filled with hot water the key being its Not metal you can use any bowl in our cold house the dough still doubles in 30 min.
