Easter Egg Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2010
This bread had a great flavor with just a hint of cardamom. I baked it as directed, but found that the temperature given was a little too hot; the top was overly browned long before the inside of the bread was cooked. I'll try it again at a lower temperature. I used our own "chicken-dyed" eggs from our Americauna hens, and they were beautiful.

Vegetarian Haggis

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
I don't know a thing about traditional haggis, but we certainly enjoyed this version! I used white kidney beans because I had them on hand. I substituted tahini for the ground peanuts and omitted the egg. I used a smidgen of cinnamon and allspice in place of the mixed spice. Even with my substitutions, it was terrific. We served it as we would meatloaf, so it only served 4. It was a little crumbly without the egg, but we didn't mind a bit; others may want to use it. Thanks for a great recipe.

Gluten-Free White Bread for Bread Machines

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
I made this for a friend who is gluten-intolerant, and who doesn't have time to bake. Though I did not taste the bread myself, she emailed the moment she received it and called it "phenomenal" and asked for the recipe immediately! I did substitute 1/2 cup sorghum flour for 1/2 cup of the white rice flour, and substituted gluten-free potato flakes for the potato starch. The batter was fairly stiff, somewhat like a muffin batter. Using the buttermilk as called for kept the dough fairly stiff, so I did not increase the amount of liquid. I let the batter (or dough) rest in a warming drawer for about 15 minutes before spooning into the greased loaf pan. I baked it at 350 for about 45 minutes, as suggested by another reviewer. I tested it with a toothpick to test for doneness, since this isn't a typical yeast bread. My friend raved about both the flavor and the texture, which she remarked was similar to a moist quick bread. I can't wait to try some myself, even though we don't have problems with gluten in our family. Thanks for a recipe that really works beautifully!

Super Strawberry Sherbet

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2009
I had only home-frozen strawberries, so I processed them in batches with the sugar. I added 1 pkg strawberry gelatin, dissolving it in 1 cup boiling water and allowing it to cool while processing the berries. Since the berries were frozen, it reduced the overall freezing time, and the gelatin gave it a smooth texture that was easily scooped even after a few days in the freezer. Delicious!

Slow Cooker Pheasant with Mushrooms and Olives

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2009
We raise our own pheasants, so I look often, usually in vain, for good recipes. This was quite the winner. The sauce, as well as the slow cooking, took away any toughness or gamy taste. I only had button mushrooms, but the result was still wonderful. Wow! Here is our own "pheasant under glass," if you count the lid of the slow cooker. I think this would work well with nearly any game bird.

Perfect Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2009
I made these for a friend who cannot tolerate gluten, but I'll keep making them for everyone. They are so easy and very tasty! I substituted milk chocolate chips for the semisweet chips, pressing the large milk chocolate chips on the top and center of the cookies to prevent them from melting off the cookies, after finding that those I mixed into the batter sometimes separated from the cookie while baking. How nice to find a recipe that didn't force me to buy expensive, hard-to-find ingredients!

Jalapeno Poppers of Champions

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2009
With only three ingredients, these looked too good to be true. I used real bacon, cooked in the microwave just until done and pliable. I added another minute or two to the oven cooking time. The only suggestion I have is to list the serving size as more than only one - just try to eat only one of these!! Only three of us inhaled all 18 rather quickly.

Tasty Collard Greens

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2009
If you're a Northerner like me, you may be squeamish about trying greens. After tasting some remarkable collards at a soul food restaurant in Charlotte, I have looked for something similar and even grew collards in hopes that I could recreate that recipe. This is it! Even my son, who strongly dislikes greens agreed to try these and enjoyed them. Looks like I'll keep a collard patch every year now.

Sweet Corn Tomalito

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2009
This received rave reviews from everyone at our potluck. I used the suggested microwave method and was not disappointed. This was very easy, fast, and quite delicious. My husband got barely a taste at the potluck, so I made it again the next night, and my family gave it high marks, too. This is a keeper.

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2009
Using the suggested fresh garlic, and 1-1/2 c broth with 1/2 c tomato sauce, and cooking in the rice cooker yielded a Mexican rice my son loved! I used some taco seasoning, too. I did not brown the rice first, so I could omit the oil as well. The rice cooked up to just the right tenderness.

Tomatillo Salsa Verde

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
Finding a 6-lb can of crushed tomatillos at a ridiculous price gave me the incentive to try this for canning. I changed the amounts more or less proportionately, used 4 medium seeded jalapenos instead of serrano, omitted the oregano, and used white vinegar instead of water (2 cups for the whole batch). I substituted canning salt for the regular salt. Though I was loathe to do it, I had to add sugar to balance the tartness, but it was fabulous. I'd recommend waiting until you've blended the salsa before tweaking the seasonings. I didn't feel it needed the chicken broth, so I didn't add it. Even my son, who loves salsa, but hates "chunks" likes this.

Easy Platz (Coffee Cake)

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
I'm not sure what more I can add to the reviews, but this was wonderful. I baked it in a 9 x 13 pan, placed 2 cups of frozen blackberries in the bottom of the pan and spooned the batter evenly over the top. I sprinkled just a smidgen of cinnamon-sugar mixture over the top before baking, too. My husband's office sent the empty pan back, asking for more.

Garbanzo Bean Chocolate Cake (Gluten Free!)

Reviewed: May 20, 2009
This recipe seemed worth trying for a gluten-intolerant friend, but I'll make this again for my own family. If I really thought about the beans, I guess I could taste them slightly, but no one else guessed it was gluten-free or had garbanzo beans in it. How nice to have something to offer my friend that didn't require a search all over town for special ingredients!

Fresh Strawberry Scones

Reviewed: May 20, 2009
Though I substituted buttermilk for the cream and added a little too much, making the dough too moist, these were still a hit. I also substituted grated orange peel for the lemon, but the scones didn't suffer for it. I'm glad to have my own strawberry plants; no doubt I'll make these with every crop!
