Gobble Up Granola Snacks

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2004
I wasn't sure after the first bite, but then I found myself eating more and more of it. At first it seems like the peanut butter flavor doesn't really fit with this, but then it grows on you. I did substitute chocolate chips for the raisins. Next time it might be even yummier to drizzle some melted chips over the top of this. My family loved it, and asked that I make it again.

Oatmeal and Everything Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2004
The taste is great, but the consistency is total mush - way more than just chewy. If I make these again, I might double the amount of the crust (oat mixture) for a more solid base. I also might soften the butter instead of melting it.

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2004
I know everyone else loved this, but it was WAY too much water for me. After cooking for 15 minutes, it still looked like apple soup. I had to drain off a lot of the water, which meant that I lost a lot of the spices too, so I had to add more of everything. Maybe it would work better if you cook the apples and water without the spices, then drain the water, then add spices.

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2004
Excellent flavor! Consistency was thick-ish, kind of like a gravy/stew. Very easy to make. Made the following modifications and would recommend them: (1)reduce veg. broth to 1 cup (2)add a third can of beans, not pureed, to soup (3)add one tsp. each of cilantro, chili powder and garlic (4)serve over rice (our personal preference) and top with green onions, salsa and sour cream.

Bacon and Tomato Cups

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2004
Filling is very tasty, but gets slightly overpowered by the biscuit cup (and I love Pillsbury biscuits!). Will probably make again, but would like to try the phyllo cup that has been mentioned for a thinner, crispier shell. Might increase bacon to 10 strips, because can you ever really have too much bacon?

Sugar Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2004
Wow, wow, wow! Earns all 5 stars easily. Even better after they cool off because they get much crunchier. Your house will smell great! Made the recommended modifications: (1) 2 egg whites for more moisture (2) used 1 T. vanilla instead of water - this makes for a very strong scented egg white mixture which made me nervous, but the final nuts taste perfect (3) 1 tsp. cinnamon.

Chicken Enchiladas IV

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2004
This recipe is fine, but it didn't wow me. My husband, however, said he really loved it. (1) My biggest problem was the corn tortilla - almost every one kept falling apart when I tried to roll it. I don't know if it was a problem with those specific tortillas, or if that's just how corn tortillas are. It was a total pain. (2)I tried green enchilada sauce in one pan and red enchilada sauce in the other (a substitution that has been suggested by others). We all agreed the green sauce tasted much better.

Irish Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2004
I used this recipe for the chicken and sauce, but used the incredible dumpling/kluski recipe in "Polish Chicken and Dumplings" by Linda - fantastic combination! Other adjustments: added enough water to one can chicken broth for a total of 3 cups liquid; only cooked the chicken in the broth with spices and vegetables for about 15-20 minutes, and I don't think that compromised the flavor at all; thickened the broth/sauce with a flour/water mixture to a gravy-like consistency; didn't add peas simply because I don't like them; next time will not add the carrots or potatoes because it just seemed to be too much with the chicken, dumplings and thick sauce - would serve on the side instead. Thank you for a great recipe!

Polish Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2004
I have made this recipe twice, and the most delicious version was when I used a different recipe (Irish Chicken and Dumplings, by Claire)for the chicken and sauce and then added the dumplings/kluski from this recipe. In all fairness to Linda, I know that I made mistakes when I followed just her recipe. I used skinless, boneless chicken and filled my pot with water, but I'm pretty sure I used much less water than she did because the listed spice amounts were then beyond overwhelming. BUT, make these dumplings exactly the way she says to! They are wonderful and dense and will stick to your ribs the rest of the night! Just wonderful on a cold, snowy night!

Easy Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2004
Delicious, easy recipe. I did make the following modifications: used 3 different varieties of apples; chopped the apples instead of sliced because we do like the apple pieces to be soft and smallish; sprinkled apple chunks in pan with cinnamon/sugar mixture; reduced water to 2/3 cup and added 1/2 tsp. vanilla to it; used yellow cake mix instead of white; reduced brown sugar to 3/4 cup (although next time I'll leave it at 1 cup because we do like our desserts to be sweet); added 2/3 cup rolled oats to dry cake mixture; reduced baking time to 45 minutes. Delicious out of the oven, but seemed to be even better about 3 hours later. Thanks for a great recipe and for all the suggestions!
