Strawberry Jam

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2011
I used 1/2 c. Stevia (Truvia, actually) and lime juice as that's what I had. This was just tart enough, just right for our tastes. I froze it in small containers. This would even be good as a filling for Strawberry Shortcake.

Extra Special Banana Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2011
I made this with the first four ingredients, the "Extra Special" part and it really was! I made the Banana Pudding IV from this site for the pudding part. I don't make pudding often but whatever flavor I'll make in the future, adding the first four ingredients this way will be part of it. I did stir in part of it so that the crunchiness will be throughout. Everyone just raved about this one! Thanks for sharing.

Delicious Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2011
This was on the sweet side but I tempered it by putting it over brown rice. Nice blend of flavors. Would pair it with a meat that would have simple spices or it would be a poor match in competing tastes. I did use half of the cayenne after reading the reviews but I might add the other half in when reheating today. We love yams and this was a nice, new and interesting way to serve them.

Curried Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2011
This was really tasty. The cinnamon was what made it. I was interrupted when making this and didn't put in the ketchup or peanuts. It was still wonderful and very different. It seemed, though, like it was begging to be shaped into meatballs instead of mini-loaves that didn't turn out to be very attractive looking.

German Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2011
Did not even bother to peel them. Turned out absolutely perfect. Cooked them on a cast iron griddle three at a time. If I would've had bacon grease, I would've fried them up in that. Thank you!

Blueberry Blintz Souffle

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2011
This turned out just beautifully except when we did the syrup with a can of cherries instead of blueberries as that's what we had. The taste was fine but the look of the cherries was extremely unappetizing when heated through. Will make again with the correct can of fruit.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2011
Not saying anything new here that this has super banana flavor and it moist. I made 6 mini-loaves, baking them for 40 minutes following the increased ingredients for 18 servings since that's what the mashed bananas equaled. I did add 1 c. of chopped walnuts. Very easy and a very dependable recipe. Thanks for sharing it!

Dilled Cucumber, Tomato and Celery Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2011
This was absolutely wonderful. I halved it for just the two of us. Did keep the 1/3 c. water, though, and just really kept checking the dill seed carefully. Only had cider vinegar but that was the only change. Very, very nice taste. Husband always makes a cucumber salad that is quick and easy with just bottled raspberry lite vinaigrette which is great, too. Was just looking for a little change and this did not disappoint. Thank you!

Beef Stew with Ale

Reviewed: May 24, 2011
I read the ingredients and read the reviews and I was excited about this recipe and ready to go. What I DIDN'T read was all the instructions. I've been pretty much a flour the meat, brown, throw in the rest of the ingredients and walk away for a few hours, crockpot-like. This one is more labor-intensive than that and I was getting kind of bummed because I really had other things to do that day than fuss with dinner. I'm so glad I hung in there though! This was just the absolute best!!! I won't say that I wouldn't try to cut or combine a few of the steps to see if it makes any difference, but I'll tell you what...if it DOES, I will go right back to this one and stop whining! This is a just FANTASTIC stew...the flavors just meld so wonderfully. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I'm craving it as I write just thinking about it. SO tasty!!!

Polish Pound Cake

Reviewed: May 7, 2011
Absolutely wonderful pound cake! We don't like maraschino cherries so I used 1 c. dried cranberries. I should've tossed them in the flour with the nuts so they would be distrubted more thoroughly throughout. I went with 2 hrs. baking time. The toothpick came out clean. Nothing worse than a dry cake so I went with that. Had a little bit of trouble getting it out of a well-greased/floured pan but that might be because the cranberries mostly fell to the bottom (top) without being tossed with the nuts in flour. Great raves and requests for this recipe at a potluck last night!

Six Egg Pound Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
I haven't been baking for a few years and am just getting back into it. It was great to start with a wonderful success! This cake turned out just perfectly. Nice and moist, not too sweet. Had 4 oz. of cream cheese to use up so whipped that with 1/3 c. confectioner's sugar and 1/4 c. o.j. for drizzling over. I'm back in the saddle again!

Baked Spaghetti Squash Lasagna Style

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
I added a green pepper to the onion and garlic saute. Had fresh tomatoes to use up so put those in with a jar of Prego garden style. Used beef bouillion and 2 c. of Mozzarella because that seemed like the right amount for us. Everything else, left the same. This was a very tasty and wonderful vegetable side. Will definitely make again. May use pork sausage to saute veggies in if I ever want to make it into a main dish. Hub doesn't even like spaghetti squash and he even loved it. A keeper!

Balsamic Pea Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
I didn't bother to chop the almond slices --for looks. Used Miracle Whip since it was Father's Day (next time, Best mayo) and hub prefers that to mayo. Only had some good shredded Parmesan. In spite of the changes, this is an EXCELLENT pea salad, better than the other ones I have used. I'll be sure to use feta next time as we both love it. Thanks for such an easy keeper!

Marinated Beet Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
Can't believe something so simple could be so good. Great zing to it! Really tasty! Husband loves beets so this is a nice addition.

Barbequed Pineapple

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
BBQ'd Pineapple Very nice side. Steve made this for a larger group, so he doubled it. The good thing about this one, you can cheat and halve/quarter the rings on the buffet table at the last minute if you find you have to stretch it!!!. Lots of inquiries on this one. He made it as written, no changes or tweaks. It was both a hit and --GONE!

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2010
Read some reviews and halved the butter but I also halved the honey (for the calories). Left the quantities the same on the (coarse Dijon) mustard and the curry. Only used 3/4 t. of salt. It was just PERFECT for our tastes. I put it in a 9x11 dish and the sauce was already more than half way up the sides of the chicken. I did cover it for the first 45 minutes with foil. Very simple and very, very good. Thank you for such a quick and tasty dish. This would be wonderful over brown rice.

Asian Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2010
This was so tasty and a very nice change! I like using Napa cabbage so I only used that which gave me 9 c. shredded. We were camping, so I just used 1 t. ginger and 1 T. garlic powder. Used one red and one green pepper, no carrots or cilantro. This was very, very good. It does have a tan color to it that might not appear to be too appetizing to some. I also used chunky peanut butter (our taste) and next time, am going to use shelled peanuts for even more crunch and texture.

Easy Dump Cherry Crisp

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2010
I gave it 5 stars because it is what it is...easy and we were camping. Maybe it was that I thought there was too much of the canned pie filling (used blueberry) and that the focus was on that? Or else I was thinking it needed a crust made of the same topping ingredients. It WAS perfect for camping having few ingredients, easeof making and taste, though, so I will make it again for on the road. Thanks!

Overnight Blueberry French Toast

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2010
I was never a fan of bread pudding, but this makes a fantastic one! I liked it much better cold as a dessert. I had an 8oz. mixed berry whipped cream cheese and a plain 12oz. one to use up. As someone else suggested, I mixed the cream cheese right in with the milk mixture,and used boysenberry syrup rather than maple. I dusted it with powdered sugar for a bit more sweetness, then poured the blueberry sauce straight over the baked casserole and no one even reached for the extra syrup. You might mistake the very moist bread as not being done but if you refrigerate it and serve it cold, you will see that it is perfect. Good either way, but I'm filing it under desserts. Thanks!
