Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2014
Wow! This was great and very easy to make. I had a ready made, unroll crust in the fridge, so used that. I also dripped about 10 drops of lemon juice across the fruit before adding the butter and lattice crust. I added extra cornstarch as others suggested, although I used 5 tablespoons of cornstarch. This worked well, making a thick gel that wasn't runny. I baked it on the rack one below the middle, on the pie ring and used the crust shield to protect the edge from burning. It baked with the dial at 400 (thermometer at 375) for 45 min, then I upped the dial to 425 for another 15 minutes, until the crust was browned and the filling started to bubble. Next time I'd try dial at 425 and check thru windo for bubbling (sound) and color at 40 minutes, then adjust for final baking. Delicious with vanilla ice cream!

Slow Cooker Beef Pot Roast

Reviewed: May 10, 2014
Very tasty! Next time, just before serving, I'll put most of the sauce in a pot on the stovetop and add flour to make gravy. My sprigs of thyme and rosemary were very small (about 4 inches). I'll double the amount next time, or try dried herbs, as I'd like even more herb flavoring.

Hasty Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2014
Wow! Over the past several weeks I've tried several pudding recipes from this site, including Chocolate Cornstarch Pudding. That is a stovetop recipe, but my family thought this one was better, with more of a cooked rather than instant pudding taste to it. I followed others advice and whisked in a tablespoon of butter with the vanilla at the end. I put it back in the microwave for 3 one minute intervals before it was done. I debated on sticking it back in a fourth time, as it was still not as thick as I thought it should be. While deciding, I whisked it another minute ( I'd been whisking for the minimum 2 minutes after each minute of cooking). During that time it started to thicken up. I'm glad I stopped cooking when I did, as it was super thick by the time I was ladeling it into the last of the four individual custard cups. I think if I had cooked it longer it would have cooled to be near solid. So when in doubt, whisk for the full four minutes before cooking an additional minute. The lickings from the empty cooking bowl were so delicious, I hope this won't be eaten before dinner tonight!

Melt-In-Your-Mouth Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2014
Delicious! This has got to be one of the best meatloaf recipes I've very had. I followed the recipe exactly, although next time I think I'll double the sauce. It was very tasty and I found myself scraping the side of the slow cooker to see if I could salvage a bit more sauce.

Chocolate Cornstarch Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2014
Easy, delicious, and fairly quick! I used 1% milk because that was all I had on hand. It thickened up before the mixture ever reached a boil. I will definitely be making this again, although I'd substitute half and half for some of the milk, or use whole milk for an even richer taste.

Serbian Ground Beef, Veggie, and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2014
Wow! This was great! I used my food processor slicing blade to get even, thin slices of potato. I also followed recommendations and increased the potatoes to about one pound of potatoes. This was spicy, with a lovely flavor different from anything else I've made. I'll be making this again! Highly recommended!

Apple Squares

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2014
Yummy! I reduced the sugars to 1/4 cup white and 1/4 cup brown, and increased the apples to 2.25 cups. I also skipped the cinnamon sugar topping. Everyone loved it! And with less sugar and more fruit, it was healthy enough for breakfast.

Ham and Cheese Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2014
Wow! This was fantastic! I used three slices of cheddar ( that was what I had on hand) and they nicely covered the crust. I upped the chopped fresh spinach to 1.5 cups (more veggies), used 4oz fresh sliced mushrooms ( sautéed in a little butter), 3/4 to 1 c chopped left over ham, and 1/2 c shredded mozzarella (what I had). I layered the spinach on top of the sliced cheese, according to the recipe, which really helped keep the crust crisp and not at all soggy. I then combined the ham and mushrooms with the egg mixture. I finished it off with a light sprinkling of shaved Parmesan. This was soo easy, and the directions were simple. The result was fabulous! My daughter (who up to now wanted no part of cooking) asked if I could show her how to make it! A new household favorite!

Teri's Dinner in a Pumpkin

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2013
Helpful hint: I visited my local produce stand that has a huge pumpkin patch on November 2. All their pumpkins, including the sugar pumpkins were on sale - $5 for a wheelbarrow full! Wow! This was delicious! Even though I'd read all the reviews, I was skeptical about the sugar and spices. What a delightful surprise! I'll be making this again!

Asian Coconut Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2013
This was great! The only thing I did differently was use an 1/8 teaspoon salt instead of a pinch. Chaokah brand coconut milk was nice and creamy! This rice had a subtle flavor, yet a luxuriously rich feel, almost like a rice pudding. A definite keeper!

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2013
Very good recipe. I used about 10 small peaches for a total of 6 cups thickly sliced. Next time I'll use 8 cups peaches, for a better peach to topping ratio. Definitely a keeper!

Heidi's Ramen Cabbage Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2013
I followed the recipe the first time and felt it only deserved 4 stars, as it was too oily for my family. The second time I added 1 cup shredded carrots and used only 3 Tablespoon olive oil (instead of 1/2 cup vegetable oil) and it made all the difference in the world. Next time I may try sesame oil and mandarine oranges.

Katie's modified Double Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2013
Yummy! We had only fresh tomatoes, so just used those in place of the others. Torta rolls from Costco subbed nicely for the ciabatta. We will definitely make this again!
