Meringue II

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2006
OMGosh!! I am "merinqueingly" challenged to say the least! I thought this one sounded like a winner and boy-howdy was it ever! I cut back on the vanilla by 1/2 and may use a little less sugar next time but this one is printed and in my cookbook for ever now. Thanks!

Grandma's Secret Pie Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2006
I use lard (1 cup only) and make sure it is well chilled before using....I use my food processor and it comes together in a perfect ball which I can use right away....the trick to this crust is you want it chilled (not cold) but room temp. dough will give you fits. I get 3 crusts out of this recipe and it freezes beautifully for later use. This one is truly a "no brainer"...thanks for sharing this recipe!!!

Light Oat Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2008
ALL 5 star reviews? I can see why! This is one the BEST bread machine recipes out there! Moist, flavorful, nice crust. I even substituted a cup of whole wheat for the all purpose flour and it just turned out pefect. I made a small loaf of bread and dinner rolls and my husband just loved it. Many THANKS for this wonderful recipe.

Mom's Best Granola

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2008
I am giving this 5 stars...the recipe itself is wonderful....however...it does NOT take 60-90 minutes to cook. I cut the salt in half due to the fact I used salted sunflower seeds...I didn't find sesame seeds so I couldn't use them...no big. I have made granola MANY times and know from experience to check it and STIR it every 15 minutes...go every 30 and it may burn and be ruined. I also used extra coconut because I LOVE it...and after it was done baking and cool I added dried cherries chopped in half to quarter pieces. **any fruit can be used..dates, raisins anything really** So...I can say I will keep this one in my book and use many times. THANK YOU for the excellent recipe!

Angela's Easy Breaded Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2008
Can I give MORE then 5 stars? WOW! GREAT! OK, I did change a couple of things. FIRST...I used chicken tenders since it's just me and hubby. SECOND...I make my own bread and had some leftover herb rolls and made my own bread crumbs. BUT even with Angela's list of ingredients I think this is a EASY and NO brainer recipe. I cooked my tenders at 475 degrees for about 15 minutes...checking on them so they didn't over cook. My hubby said "PLEASE put this recipe in your book". THANK YOU Angela...GREAT recipe!

Traditional White Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
WONDERFUL! I halved the recipe and used my bread machine...I bake with lard so having it is never an issue. It worked GREAT in my machine...a perfect loaf of bread. I didn't change a THING either. CRUSTY on the outside and moist on the inside. Reminds me of being in "Amish" country and stopping at a farm where the local ladies sell baked bread...My husband also remarked on how good this was THEN I told him it was a new recipe I tried. It will be in my forever book that I am working on. MANY THANKS for sharing this one with us!

Bolognese Sauce with Meat

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2008
I LOVED IT! OMGosh..so, so good! I DID add an extra tomato and cut BACK on the salt since the prosciutto is salty...I actually used about 1/4 teasp. of salt. Now...bad news..my husband did NOT like it...he prefers a WETTER sauce. This is not a coat your pasta with tomato sauce-sauce. To me it's more the consistancy of a sloppy joe...but...tossed in pasta it WILL coat the noodles with flavor. I am giving it 5 BIG stars for ME personally...I WILL make it again but make it more "saucy" for hubby. THANKS for such a GREAT recipe!

Creamy Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2008
I made this thinking it would be super simple and I had all the ingredients. AFTER I got it cooking I had MAJOR doubts about it but it was to late to turn back so I hoped for the best. It was GREAT! So good! NO KIDDING! We served the sauce over rice and my husband RAVED and he is NOT a big pork fan. This one goes into my cookbook and I will make it again. The ONLY change I made was I did not use any salt (the bacon is salty enough) and I didn't use the paprika. THANKS for posting this most excellent dish!

Cherry Cordial Ice Cream

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2008
When I got my ice-cream maker I was only going to use "custard" recipes...NO sweetened condensed recipes for me...NO SIR! BUT.... YUMMERS! I used my Cuisinart 2 QT. ice-cream maker...it was to much mix for it but I went ahead anyway (cleaning up the mess is fun anyway) and it churned up beautifully. GREAT taste/texture...the ONLY thing I may do diffently is add a "bit" more chopped cherries. (personal taste and all that). 5 BIG stars for this one. GREAT recipe and I will make it again. THANKS for posting!

Easy Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2009
OK, I did what lots of us do...I changed things a bit. I used 2 C. half & half and 2 C. heavy cream and 1 tsp. vanilla and 1 tsp. vanilla paste and of course the Eagle Brand. I froze it in my Cuisinart ice-cream maker (the 2 qt. model) and it came out VERY good! No after taste and it froze beautifully. Was the vanilla flavor strong? I don't think so. IMHO if you are going to go to all the trouble of making something from scratch then don't skimp...I used really good vanilla and cream so maybe that's what this recipe is missing? Anyway, bottom line? I had really good results with this simple recipe and will add it to my forever cookbook.

Zeppole

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
Taking into account what many others had said...I added some extra sugar and a tad extra vanilla and some butter extract...I was VERY generous with the powdered sugar. VERY GOOD...VERY SUPER SIMPLE! I made 1/2 a recipe for hubby for a "weekend afternoon snack". BIG hit with husband and a no muss/fuss treat! MANY THANK for posting this...5 STARS all the way...just remember to DOLL UP if you want some extra flavor.

Buttermilk Chocolate Cake with Fudge Icing

Reviewed: May 17, 2009
I am back for my second baking of this recipe. YUMMY.....ONE THING....everyone who said add MORE cocoa? They are SPOT ON. With added cocoa and cutting the recipe in half because there are only 2 of us....it's a KEEPER and a WINNER. By the way....1/2 a recipe makes a dozen cupcakes and may I suggest ganache for frosting? YUMMY GOOD! THANKS for posting this.

Banana Flips

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
How to review this masterpiece? Hmmmm....Well FIRST it's a 10 star recipe! I have made this twice now WITH the advice of using powdered sugar instead of granular. AND....I had an old banana and added that to the cake for kicks & giggles (will ALWAYS do that!). Now for the "filling"...I could NOT find any banana extract on the day I was to make this SO I purchased some Loran's Banana Cream Oil...yes the kind used for candy making...BUT you CAN add it to other things as well. I put in a DROP at a time just until I got a very "light" banana flavor and was I glad I did...it balanced out the MEGA MOIST banana cake with the not so "sweet" filling. Am I gushing? :-) It's a GREAT recipe and something different to do with an old banana or two! THANKS FOR POSTING THIS...really!

Maple Oat Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
YUM! YUM! Ok, I did make one "change"...maybe 2? FIRST I thought I would replace 1/2 the oats with steel cut oats for more "texture"? It WORKED. SECOND I used my Kitchen-Aid mixer to mix this up. I actually ended up with 2 loaves of bread. My neighbor RAVED about this bread and it is SO SO good...the maple flavor just shines but does not overtake. This bread has just the right amount of "chewy, texture, crust"....in a word? PERFECT! MANY THANKS FOR SHARING THIS! It's going in my forever recipe box.

Oatmeal Banana Raisin Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
Well...they ARE good and Lord KNOWS how sick I am of banana bread. Gotta say...not "cookie" like...but for me they came out "cakey"...but GOOD! Don't get me wrong...A GREAT change from banana bread and I would make again. By the way I used REAL butter and golden raisins and 3 banana's in mine. **Am bumping from 4 to 5 STARS!** AFTER letting them sit overnight I would give these 20 stars! Gave some away to friends since this recipe makes so much and am still noshing on mine...these are even BETTER when they sit a day or two. SO....5 STARS! Like I said a GREAT change from banana bread and muffins! Next time I will try some crushed pineapple and nuts in these....just for kicks and giggles.

Waldorf Salad II

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
YUMMERS! I just made it for dinner tonight instead of veggies....I did NOT have the lemon juice but oddly don't even miss it. Followed the recipe and added golden raisins and I fell short on my mayo so it's not a "saucy" as I think I would have preferred but even with all that? 5 STARS BABY! Thanks...this super simple recipe is going in my recipe box.

Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
10 STARS BABY! I do not like molasses gingerbread cookies and I found this and followed the recipe to the letter and WOW! Yummy.....SO DARN GOOD! I did a "test run" today before I made these to give away and I KNOW the people gifted with these will love them. Let me address the "cooking time". I used a BIG gingerbread man cutter and YES they DID take about 12 minutes....smaller cookies will NOT take as long.....but I am stickin' with my jumbo boys! Anyway try this fabu recipe and can I just say THANK YOU for posting and thank you ALL for the amazing pics which gave me GREAT decorating ideas! OH YES...someone advised buying more then one box of pudding ...... YES! Get more then one box.....TRUST that piece of advice.

Carla's Fruit Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
I am teetering between a 4 and 5 but will stick with a 5. I made this for my mom's wedding reception and it WAS good...very good. I just wish I had put in some cherry juice like advised because mine came out thick. I would make this again in a heartbeat though....it was yummy!
