The Best Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
It's very tasty and easy to make, but I wish I would have taken a previous reviewer's advice to split the batter into two smaller pans. I just couldn't get the middle done before the edges started to dry out.

Sugar Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2008
For 1 and 1/2 lb (6 cups pecans), I upped it to 2 egg whites. Also added 1 TBSP vanilla (as others suggested) and more cinnamon. The key to this great recipe is definitely the low temp and stirring it every 15 minutes for an hour, and every 3-5 minutes after that if needed to get the nuts dry. Other recipes call for a much hotter oven for less time, and reviewers are often sad that their goodies burned. Thanks!

Easy Corn and Crab Chowder

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
Easy, delicious. Made a few changes based on other reviewers’ suggestions. I used 5 strips maple bacon, and 4 cubed red potatoes (skin on). I microwaved potatoes w/ plastic wrap cover for 3 minutes. In bacon fat, sautéed chopped veggies: 1 red onion, 1 red pepper, 2 celery, and handful of common mushrooms. Added lump crab meat. In soup pot, added: 4 cups chicken broth, 1 can regular corn (drained), the veggie mix, crumbled bacon, along w/ dill, parsley, old bay seasoning, salt/pepper. After heated through, added 1 cup 2% milk and a mixture of 3 TBSP cornstarch/water for slight thickening (some people might like it much thicker than this, just play w/ it 1 TBSP at a time). This is a keeper for me, thanks.

Cabbage Roll Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2008
Excellent. Take DiscoBunny's advice in the review section, though. Add lots of spices, and mix the broth and tomato (I used 2 cans tomato soup) in with the meat and onions. As suggested, I also mixed in the rice with the meat mixture and let it sit 15 min (would do 20-25 next time). I used 1 medium sized cabbage. It took about 1 hr and 15 covered in a 9 x 13 pan, and another 15 uncovered. Was a smash hit.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
Pouring the liquid right over the top of the lattice is a great idea. I was skeptical, but it turned the top of the pie into the crystallized carmel delight. Next time, I would try what others have suggested and mixed a bit of the liquid with the apples and save the rest for the top. I would also add cinnamon and the usual suspect spices. Overall, though, a beautiful and tasty pie.

Homemade Pizza Supreme

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2008
Hands down the best homemade pizza crust I've ever made, and that includes the times I've done it in the breadmaker. The sauce is simple and tasty. Pre-cooking the crust is also a brilliant idea. Homemade pizza can be a bit time consuming, but this particular recipe is worth it. Thank you!!

Healing Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2008
An outstanding recipe to add your own flair to. I took the basic recipe and also added: 1) 1 bunch of green onions, chopped; 2) 1 can each of red kidney and cannellini beans (drained); 3) 3 sliced chicken apple sausage links; 4) more herbs (parsley, basil, italian seasoning, celery seed), and 5) 1/4 tsp cayenne for zip. Had amazing flavor and made my stomach happy. Even better the next day.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Nirvana

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
VERY easy to make. I followed the recipe to the letter and it turned out perfectly. Only addition was to drizzle Reese's chocolate peanut butter topping over the top of it for a little extra artsy 'oomph'. Served it at a holiday party and got a lot of ooohs and aaahs.

Black Bean Lasagna II

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2007
As suggested by another reviewer, I added a Goya Sazón packet to both the bean and the cheese layers. I also doubled the amount of onion and corn, and added sliced black olives and jalapenos to the bean mixture. I added 2 eggs to the cheese mixture to ensure that it was firm. It ended up being enough for 3 full layers of noodles (of which I used gluten-free no-boils...since they're made of rice it's a good alternative for those who find the "pasta" aspect of this recipe weird) in a 9 x 13 pan. Not runny, very easy, devoured by family and guests. THANK YOU!

Radish Top Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2007
Wow, who knew you could eat radish greens? By themselves I find them too bitter but in this soup they were good. I wanted a more potato soup kind of outcome, so I added a few more potatoes, chopped celery, about 2 TBS of minced garlic (I like garlic) and about 1 cup of chopped garden herbs (dill, lemon thyme, sage, rosemary). If you want more of a "punch" I'd follow the other reviewer's suggestion to add hot sauce, but if you're anti-spicy like me and just want to use up a ton of garden herbs and radish tops, you can't go wrong.

Vegetable Pizza I

Reviewed: May 27, 2007
Delicious! I used two 9" round pans, only one cream cheese (1/3 fat kind), 1/2 cup of low fat sour cream and 1/2 the seasoning packet. Turned out to be exactly the right amount to spread over crusts. THANKS!

Green Rice

Reviewed: May 11, 2007
I really liked this a lot. I had leftover basmati rice, and used a bit of fresh mushroom, green onion, tomato, and broccoli. Really whatever leftover veggies I had. The lemon was a fresh tasting surprise. Delicious!

Crescent Beef Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2007
Very tasty! Made a few changes: 1) Brushed the mashed tater crust w/ olive oil and baked for 30 minutes to crisp up; 2) Used a 9 x 9 pan; 3) Made two layers of the meat/cheese/crescent rolls instead of just one. Will make again!

Chocolate Mint Cake Squares

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2007
This was easy and delicious. I took the advice of some other reviewers regarding the mint filler, and used about 2 tablespoons of milk, a teaspoon of peppermint extract, about 2 tablespoons of additional powdered sugar and some green food coloring instead of the creme de menthe. Turned out super. Also, for the other folks who are in a hurry like I was, my cake wasn't entirely cooled, I only chilled the mint layer for about 15 minutes before adding the chocolate and chilling for only about another 1 1/2 hours. Turned out fabulous. Thank you!
