Quick Quiche

Reviewed: May 30, 2006
My boyfriend didn't want me to make quiche but after I made this he ate two helpings. I'm giving this 5 stars because it tastes good and I love love love that I didn't have to make crust!

Easy Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: May 20, 2006
I took a lot of advice from previous reviewers. I used lemon cake mix because that is what I had and I liked the flavor. I also made mini muffins and only cooked them for 15 minutes. I'm only giving these 3 stars (an average rating) because the batter is dense and so the tops of the muffins don't turn out smooth like regular muffins. Maybe moisture from water or oil would help. Form the blobs of batter neatly into the cups because they tend to come out the way you formed them from the spoon, jagged and awkward. Nevertheless, they are moist, tasty and so easy to make.

Chicken Enchiladas V

Reviewed: May 7, 2006
I had a surprise visit from my boyfriends family and I made this recipe because I had all the ingredients. My boyfriends father wanted the recipe. It isn't like traditional chicken enchiladas but it's pretty easy to make. The flavors blend well and I like the concept of the rolled flour tortillas with the cheese on top. You definately need a knife to cut them while eating.

Three Berry Pie

Reviewed: May 6, 2006
I used 1 cup sugar and 1/4 cup corn starch. I used 3 cups blueberries and 1 cup raspberries because that's what I had. This is wonderful.

Banana Pancakes I

Reviewed: May 6, 2006
These are a little more mushy, for lack of a better word, than traditional pancakes. It's obviously because of the bananas but they're pretty good.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: May 6, 2006
Ok you guys, this is a great apple pie, especially when it's hot!! I did as others suggested and added nutmeg and cinnamon to the syrup and mixed 3/4 of the syrup with the apples before pouring the rest on the lattice. The pie was beautiful and the crust is amazing! The only problem I had was it was runny inside and the apples were not as soft as I would have liked. Well, I used red delicious apples and I just discovered through some older reviews that red delicious have more water in them and to rectify the problem just add 2-3 Tablespoons of instant tapioca and cut the apples in approx 1/4 inch slices. I wanted to give this recipe four stars but as the recipe stands, the apples under the delicious crust are lacking spice and flavor so it needs a little modification. At any rate, it is great with ice cream.

Tuna Noodle Casserole I

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2006
This was really good before I baked it. It had a really good flavor and it was nice to vary from the mushroom soup recipes I've tried. After I baked it, it was dry. Next time I will omit the baking step and just sprinkle crushed potato chips on it.

Zucchini Bread IV

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2005
Just like my mom's Zucchini Bread, except she uses 1/2 tsp. baking powder instead of 1/4 and adds 1/4 tsp. nutmeg. Great classic recipe!

Lemon Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2005
This recipe is almost exactly like the recipe on the side of the Imperial Sugar bag. The difference is that it uses butter instead of shortening and a little less milk. Anyway, this bread is very tasty. It's a bit stumpy (didn't rise that much) but maybe I needed fresher baking powder.

Cathy's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2005
I chose to make this recipe because I had only 2 ripe bananas and most recipes call for 3 or 4. I'm glad I made it because it's fantastic. The best banana bread I've ever had. It is lighter and a bit cake-like. I have also made muffins from this but baked them for only 20 minutes.

Sour Cream Torte

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2005
I've waited over 24 hours for the torte to meld and become delicious but it just isn't. It's like one big, wet sugar cookie. Sorry.

Enchiladas

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2005
I should have added taco seasoning like others suggested. I did use corn tortillas instead of flour because flour tortillas seem more like a burrito. But maybe I should have tried flour anyway...maybe next time.

Orange Smoothie

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2005
This is delicious! No fancy ingredients and so it's a no brainer. It tastes like an orange Julius but a little runnier. I'll definately make it again!

Sunshine Toast

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2005
My toaster was broken so it was a great way to toast the bread with the egg. My first one was way too buttery but the second one I made was great. I've never tried this before. It's a cute idea. Thanks for submitting.

Brown Sugar Smokies

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2005
I didn't know how long to cook these so I cooked them for 20 minutes. I wish I had cooked them longer but the brown sugar that had spilled on the bottom of the pan seemed to be burning. So, next time I think I'll do what someone else suggested and dip the bacon in the brown sugar first and then wrap the smokie so that all the sugar mixes with the grease and doesn't burn. Then I can cook them for 30 - 40 minutes so the bacon can get really crisp.

Glazed Almond Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2005
Whew...I'm so glad I rechecked the reviews for this recipe after 50 minutes of baking because the cake looked done. I have a dark bundt pan so that might have been a reason it cooked in less time. It still was a little dark so 45 minutes seems appropriate. Good almond flavor, a little crumbly and it's difficult to get it out of the pan so more butter and flour on the bundt pan may be helpful. The icing is good but I think I'll stick with the confectioner's kind if I make this again.

Angel's Old Fashioned Beef Stew

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2005
It hasn't been mentioned that cooking the potatoes for two hours makes them fall apart and become practically non-existant. I suppose that what helps thicken the gravy. Even though I turned the burner on low, it was bubbling away under the lid so I had to stir it often. I really like chunky potatoes in my stew so getting to the point...this is a good recipe and I like the flavors. It is what basic old fashioned stew is supposed to taste like...no worcestershire sauce or tomato sauce. Next time, I'm going to follow the directions precisely except add the potatoes 1/2 hour before the stew is to be done so that the stew will be chunky. I realize that might effect the thickness of the gravy so I'll add the flour, water mix at the end too (which I didn't need to do because it was already so thick this time). Cooking the meat for so long makes the meat very tender.

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2005
This was pretty good but I don't really like the "orange" flavor in the potatoes. If I make this again, I'm nixing the orange juice.

Classic Chicken and Rice Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2005
I just boiled my own whole chicken instead of buying a roasted one at the supermarket. That might make a difference in the flavor. I don't know. I used the chicken broth after I boiled the chicken and then strained it and added 3 more cans of canned chicken broth. Make sure you use dried thyme leaves and not ground thyme like I did. I have thyme growing in my flowerbeds, I should have added that instead (oh well). I also added a little tarragon. My boyfriend liked it. I liked it to although we'll be eating chicken soup for days.

Angel Food Cake III

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2005
Very nice moist cake! I used the idea from another recipe on this site (Cherry Angel Food Cake)and added chopped/drained maraschino cherries at the end and folded them in. I wanted to use this recipe because it was 5 stars and I'm glad I did. Even without the cherries it would be great! I agree with the other reviewers that said 40 - 45 minutes is too much time. In was already getting pretty brown in 30 minutes. I was worried taking it out that early but had I kept it in it might have been dry or too dark around the edges.
