Grilled Cauliflower

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2013
This tasted good enough but it sure wasn't as easy as I thought. Slicing a head of cauliflower took some doing and mine also fell apart. I didn't use my grill it since it was winter and I think that was the problem. I panned fried the slices along with all the pieces and the flavor was really OK but it was so greasy. I still gave it 4 stars because the recipe does say to grill it and I think it would be so much better that way. I did sprinkle some Romano cheese on it before serving and I loved the result. I do plan to try this again in the summer on the grill. Thanks for a really unique recipe!

Hot Bruschetta Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2011
I have to say this was just the best! I needed something quick and this sure fit that bill. I will admit I forgot to remove the rind which caused a slight mess but once we got that off the entire thing went. I am planning to make this next week again. Thanks for a fabulous recipe.

Raisin Sour Cream Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
This is an excellent recipe. I've never used sour cream in a raisin pie and I was also skeptical but I needn't have worried. I followed the filling directions as listed but I did plump the raisins first. I also used regular pie dough that I had left over. I made the strusel topping as suggested by another reviwer and it was a great touch. This is going right in my recipe box..thanks for a great pie!

Fresh Apple Cake I

Reviewed: May 7, 2010
I wanted to use up some apples but did not want apple pie. This was a great find. I made a recipe and a half because I used a 9x13 glass baking dish (didn't have cast iron anything). I added 1/4 cup buttermilk as others suggested and sprinkled cinnamon sugar over the batter before baking. I eyeballed the apples so I may have used more then called for in the recipe. I baked it about 50 minutes and I covered it with foil the last 10 minutes so it wouldn't over brown. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for a great recipe !

Kielbasa Appetizers

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
These were so good and really easy. I did par boil the kielbasa first to take out most of the fat. I doubled this recipe to take to a party and there was none left when I went home. Thanks for a great recipe.

Panettone I

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
I have always wanted to try this bread but the recipes I looked at were very complicated. This one was perfect. I added more fruit and the zest of one orange as per my personal preference but otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. I baked it in a oval casserole dish and it was done in about 30 minutes. I think a regular bread pan would definitely be to small for this. Brushing the melted butter on the top before baking results in a browner, softer crust so if you don't like that you should omit that step. The taste and texture of the end result reminds me of Easter bread, which my family loves. Great recipe, give it a try and you won't be disappointed.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
These had a very good flavor but the pumpkin made them almost to moist. I cooked them a long time but the centers were still gummy. Maybe next time I'll make the batter alittle thinner.

Apple Dumplings I

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
I took others advice and chopped the apples first then I sprinkled them with cinnamon sugar. I didn't have refrigerated biscuits so I made my own. They were a little difficult to flip but they tasted great. I did as others did and cooked for 20 minutes then flipped for the last 10 minutes. I added the sauce during those last 10 minutes. I limited the water as suggested by others but the consistency was to thick in my book. I think next time I will cut the butter a little and add just a little more water to thin it out( probably not the amount called for in the recipe though). I will say my husband loved them just as they were. I will definitely make these again.

Pistachio Nut Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2009
This cake is very easy to make and it stays very moist. The batter is very thick so don't think you did something wrong. It raises very nicely when cooking. I use an angel food cake tube pan rather then a Bundt pan because I think the cake comes out much easier. For St Patrick's Day I add a drop of green food color to deepen the green color. I've made this twice now and it's definitley a family pleaser.

High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
This came out perfect. I actually forgot to turn the temperature down and the roast was still pink and very tender.If your roast does not have alot of fat you can trim the fat off of a few pieces of bacon and lay the strips across the top. I will definitely make this again.

Hot Spiced Cider

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
This was my first attempt at spiced cider and it turned out fabulous. I followed the recipe as stated but I did not use the coffee pot. I put the brown sugar and cider in a pan and heated it to boiling to dissolve the sugar completely. I poured this into my crockpot. I tied the spices in a coffee filter as others have suggested and put that along with sliced oranges in the cider. I turned it to warm about 2 hours before my guests arrived and it was perfect. I kept the spices and fruit in the cider all evening and I thought the flavor got better and better. Thanks for a great recipe.

Lady Lock Filling I

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
This was very good. I used it as a filling for rolled pizelles. I read the other comments regarding prolonged mixing time to dissolve the sugar and I solved that problem. I stired the sugar into the milk and just warmed it alittle stirring constantly. That dissolves the sugar quite nicely. It is importent to cool the mixture completely before adding the flour or it will lump. Follow the rest of the recipe as it is written. I used almond flavoring and it was delicous.

Homemade Angel Food Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2008
I've made angel food cakes before and this one turned out great.I used almond flavoring instead of vanilla but otherwise I followed the recipe. For those of you who've never made angel food, take the previous advice about not greasing the pan. Also I did not add the flour all at once. I added it in fourths and folded it in by doing 2 deep folds with a spatula then turning the bowl a quarter turn. When you take it out of the oven you should invert it until it's totally cool. This is a keeper for me.

Zucchini Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2006
This was amazing. There was no way I would have ever believed that zucchini would taste exactly like apples. My husband thought I was kidding him when I told him these were not apples. I did a few things differently. I used brown sugar as suggested in other reviews and I cooked the zucchini in lemon juice and Spiced Rum..yummy.
