Romanian Apple Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2009
Wow - just like I'd get when I visited the DDR as a child. Loved it! The baked cake is light and just lightly flavored with cinnamon. The apples are soft and moist and the walnuts give just a bit more texture. My husband, his co-workers, and I just ate it all up quickly! I'm heading to the store for some more apples today to have one for home! I used all Granny Smith and added about 1/2 c of raisins. Rustic and flavorful! Yummy!

Quick & Easy Ricotta Pie

Reviewed: May 31, 2009
Fantastic and easy! Just don't care for the piecrust part of it. The filling is great and easy - light and cheesecakey! I'll do this one again - I'm sure it's great on it's own w/out a crust - but I'm getting talked into a pecan/graham cracker crust for next time.

Filipino Lumpia

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
Loved this one. Used grated carrots and chopped the green onions a little chunkier for our taste - it was great! Will try to bake it at the 425 like someone mentioned to lighten it up a bit - but it had a great taste. Used eggroll wrappers and got 32 big lumpia out of it with enough filling left over to make some killer fried rice to go with it! Thanks for sharing - I'm making it again soon!

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
Very moist and tender cornbread - and so easy to get great results. Made it with 1/2 brown sugar and soaked the corn meal for 10 mins in the milk. Wow - totally brought out the nuttiness of the meal. So glad for the tips that were left in the other reviews! This is my cornbread recipe now. Thanks for sharing it!

Italian Cream Cheese and Ricotta Cheesecake

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
This one is just like the one my German mama used to make! Fantastic to find it. She used to add golden raisens to the mix - but she'd make me one plain just like this if I begged! My husband loved it and the whole 9" cake was gone between the 2 of us in 2 days - oh my. The little bit of texture from the ricotta makes it for me! ;)

Slow Cooker Manly Stew

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
This is one of those things that just doesn't sound like it will work - but works so well! Fantastic gravy once it all cooks down with the meat juices! Rich and deep brown and flavorful! I had no idea! It's in my meal planning now- I will double the meat next time though - there was a lot of 'extra' gravy that was eaten with bread.

Kalua Pork

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
Totally delicious and so easy! I was a little shy on rubbing in the salt and smoke- won't be next time. Fantastic mildly smoky pork for just about anything you want to use it for. My family loved it!

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
Easy and tasty chili. We loved it. doubled the beans and just used canned kidney beans - didn't have the green pepper - doubled the cumin for that smoky light heat it brings. Used a can of crushed tomatoes instead of the tomato juice and only used 1 lb of ground beef. My family - especially my husband - LOVED it! Smelled great cooking along in the crockpot all day and came out thick and deeply colored. Delicious.
