Pumpkin Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2012
While I use my own crust recipe, this pumpkin pie is my new go-to for the holidays. It turns out perfect every time and is very adaptable. I always add about half again as much of each of the spices called for because we like a spicy pumpkin pie. All of my friends and family raved. This is the one!

Raspberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2012
This is a great, no fail recipe for a basic raspberry sauce. It's a simple method, but fancy enough to make even novice cooks shine. I've made the recipe as is with good results, but if you've a little more experience, it's easily tweaked. I substitute brown sugar and a bit of corn syrup to thicken it so I don't have to use so much corn starch. As another reviewer stated, the cornstarch will mute the raspberry flavor a bit. I also added about a quarter teaspoon of almond extract which really helps to pop the raspberry flavor. To top it off, I add about 2 teaspoons of brandy at the end, which makes it nice and rich. Great sauce for a chocolate torte!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2012
Everyone loved these muffins. I thought the crunch of the crumb topping was a different and delightful addition to a great muffin. A little tip, shorten the cooking time for cupcake sized muffins. Will try only 15 minutes next time as 18 made them a bit dry and too brown on the bottom. Great recipe, Lisa!

Perfect as is! Such an easy method for a huge payoff. I don't make cauliflower any other way now. Hubby and I both love it.

French Pastry Pie Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2012
Wow! I had sworn off of making homemade pie crust because I just couldn't find an easy, tasty recipe that would work for me. This recipe is just that. It comes together very easily in the food processor. It's a very sturdy dough that is easy to handle even when rolled out thin. Very tasty too. The amount of sugar is easily adjustable for various fillings. I keep the amount as is for tart lemon pie and cut it down a bit for sweet berry filling or apple. Very good versatile recipe!

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2012
Years ago, I bought a bread machine and swore off of hand-making bread. This recipe has converted me back! It is so easy to put together and is perfect for everything from simple buttered bread, to sandwiches to french toast. I no longer purchase bread at the grocery store. Great recipe, Peg! *Update - I was having trouble with sandwich slices falling apart. After some research indicating that more kneading leads to a denser bread, I now knead this bread for an extra 8 minutes after the first rise. I had only been kneading for a couple minutes and the extra kneading time yielded a loaf that was still deliciously tender, but with slices that held together for sandwiches. No more store-bought bread for this family!

Bacon Wrapped Pork Medallions

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2012
Wow! Great recipe and easily adapts to your favorite herb blend or rub. I didn't read the recipe carefully enough and cut my tenderloin into one inch medalions before wrapping with bacon. In hind sight, that might be easier than wrapping it whole. I also cooked these on the grill over medium/high heat. Have tried pre-cooking the bacon as well as just wrapping it raw. On the grill, the bacon crisps up nicely, so I don't bother with pre-cooking any more. Makes this a really quick, easy meal! I love finding awesome basic recipes that are so easily tweaked to taste. Great job, Eve!

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2012
Wow! Just wow! Awesome cookies. They have created a cult following in my circle. I'm no longer allowed to attend my regular Sunday meeting without these cookies. One little tweak; I soak the raisins in warm water for 15-20 minutes because I prefer them plump and soft. No ogher changes required. This one is a winner!

Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2012
This is a great basic creamy tomato basil soup. Very easy to put together. And very, very tasty. Hubby and I both really enjoyed it. For a little fuller flavor, stir just a dash of nutmeg in when you stir in the butter and cream. Fantastic!

Triple Dipped Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2012
Wow! Hubby and I just loved this fried chicken! He said it put extra tasty crispy to shame. Thanks for a fantastic recipe! *Update - The Next Day Holy cow! I have never liked cold fried chicken, but several reviewers said this chicken was great cold, and I didn't have a lot of time for lunch, so I thought, why not. Wow! I think I like it better cold than hot. Who knew!!!

Lemon Pie Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2012
No need to search any further for the perfect lemon bar. I like a lot of filling, so I make half again as much filling and keep the crust recipe the same. This is the perfect ratio for a wonderfully lemony bar! Great recipe kukadog!

Ingrid's Caesar Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2012
This is quite simply the best Caesar dressing I've ever made at home, and I've tried lots! For a no-fail, everyone loves it version, stick to the original recipe and it will never let you or your guests down. After using this recipe several times, I've begun experimenting with it. I've substituted the blue cheese salad dressing with ranch and creamy italian with stellar results, so don't be afraid to use what you have on hand. With a bit of experimentation, I've also discovered that you can cut down on the amount of olive oil, or omit it all together if you're trying to save fat/calories. Thank you Kirsten and Ingrid! This one I will keep always!

Holiday Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2012
Great salad as is! Easy to adjust for personal preference. Just remember, you need something crunchy, something sweet, something tart and some nuts. Use what you like. The spices are spot on, though. Fantastic!

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2012
This is my go-to method for roasted chicken. It's so easy to make and really impresses every time I make it. Lately, this has become Sunday dinner along with roasted carrots and potatoes. I use any leftovers for chicken salad sandwiches or soup the next day. Thanks, Robin, for a tried and true favorite!

This recipe is fantastic! The sauce has become my go-to terriyaki sauce for any stir-fry I can conceive of. I use fresh ginger and red pepper flakes to add a bit of a kick. Thanks, Marian for a superb recipe.

Jo's Rosemary Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
Wow, Joe! Unbelievable recipe. I let the bread machine do the heavy lifting on the dough setting, then I scooped it out of the machine, formed it into a round and proofed it for a further 40 minutes. Baking at 375 for 27 minutes yields a lofty, fluffy italian bread with a perfectly thick, crunchy crust. I brushed it with olive oil when it came out of the oven and that softened the crust just a touch. Incredible! Husband raved!
