Wassail Punch I

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2006
Loved Loved Loved It. I used ground ginger due to the cost of crystalized ginger. Also used apple juice due to availability.I used 64 ouces of apple juice and 1 teaspoon each of ground ginger and nutmeg about 1 1/2 tablespoons of whole cloves and substituted brown sugar for white. I also adjusted the juices accordingly using 3 cups of Orange Juice and 3/4 c lemon juice, 3 cinnamon sticks.

Fruity Party Punch

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2005
I have been looking for a punch to serve at a womens brunch and this hit the spot. Not too sweet, just a little tart and just a pleasant mix of flavors. A sure keeper.

Grandmother's Punch

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2005
I thought this recipe was just OK, nothing special. It reminded me a great deal of Hawaian Punch, Soda and Sherbet. My hubby really liked it. I reduced the sugar to 1 1/2 cups and it was certainly sweet enough.

Sweet-Sour Red Cabbage

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2010
Very good and I am not an over the top cabbage fan, the only thing I might change is I will try leaving out the water next time as it seemed to dilute it a little too much. Cooked the cabbage then simmered with pre-cooked keilbasa served as an appetizer. Very easy and very good.

Red Slush Punch

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2009
Just OK for me, it seemed very similar to fruit punch mixed with fruit juice and soda. Not horrible but nothing special either, Sorry.

Easy Punch

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
Not great but not awful either. I made 1/2 of the recipe except added an entire 2 liter of gingerale. I think a different flavor of koolaid would have been better. The taste of pineapple was kind of strong to me. I added a tub of rainbow sherbert which seemed to reduce the pineapple flavor a little. I remember as a child having a similar punch that used orange koolaid that I really liked

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2008
I loved loved loved the frosting. The reason for 4 instead of 5 stars was the fact that I did not like the texture of the cake. I think next time I will try sponge cake or pound cake and soak it in the coffee mixture. Also I thought by splitting it among 3 layers made it too thick, I think I would like it divided into two layers better with the filling between. Overall a good recipe

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2008
I thought this lacked flavor and was a little dry for me. I wouldn't make again. I reviewed the recipe again and can't see anything I did wrong, guess it just isn't what I was looking for.

Baked Pancakes with Sausages

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2006
It was very easy and quick to make. My family really liked it, I was OK with it but I'm not a big pancake and sausage fan either. But it sure beats the heck out of cooking pancakes one by one. It's a keeper

Red Raspberry Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
I doubled the jam as I prefer very sweet dressing but I also like fruit in my salad. But it was very good

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
Oh my, served on slightly browned flour tortilla's with sour cream. It was incredible. After reading through the reviews and finding Impish's review Oct 1, 2006 very helpful I made some additions as suggested. I added 1 beef boulion cube, added 1 1/2 t cumin and 1 tsp of paprika. Simmered in the crock pot overnight, shredded the meat, refrigerated in the broth and microwaved after work for supper. It was fantastic. Will definitely make again and again.

Incredible Punch

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
I am kind of on the fence on this one. Those who liked it really liked it, others not so much. It was a little tart for me. The color was beautiful, just not what I want when I have punch. I love love love punch but looking for something a little sweeter for my taste.

Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2008
The only complaint I had was the lack of seasoning, for my taste it requires alot more seasoning. I liked the texture of the breading and the ease and availability of the ingredients. Would definitely make again but add alot more seasoning but overall a very good recipe.

Baby Blue Punch

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2007
Presentation is half of the game, I am using this recipe for my daughters baby shower, we believe she's having a little girl but little girls take bath's too and the rubber duck floating on the top is just the perfect touch.

Chocolate Bar Fondue

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2006
I thought it was just OK, a little bit too strong of flavor for me. I used it in our chocolate fountain and it tended to get a little too thick even after I added some cooking oil as it suggested in the directions on the fountain. Not sure I would use the recipe again.

Lettuce with Hot Bacon Dressing

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
My husband really liked it, me not so much. I thought the dressing was too bland and after it cooled the bacon grease got kind of thick and simply coated the greens. I probably will not make again.
