Spiced Pecans

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2003
Very good recipe. Nice and easy! I cooked these at 30 degrees for 50 min, turning every 10 min, but think I would stop after 40 min next time. I was temped to stop, but didn't. They were just a little too done, but still yummy. Note: If you aren't a huge clove fan, reduce or eliminate it. I love cloves and it's almost too strong for me. I used a jelly roll pan lines with foil. Made stirring very easy with the little lip to hold in all the nuts. Enjoy!!! and Thanks, Pat!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2003
All I need to say is that this is the first time my Grandmother asked ME for a recipe!!! Says it all, really. I used 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar. The bread still turned out dark, dense and moist. Even with the additional sugar, it was not overly sweet. Easy recipe and boy is it fragrant! This will now and forever more be the banana bread recipe in my recipe box!

Baked French Toast

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2004
I had no problems fitting the bread in a 13X9 pan. Thanks for the suggestions in using the 6 eggs and 1 c. milk. We used eggnog, but I don't think it mattered. (Maybe you could taste the eggnog more if you skip the topping). I made all the topping and just poured some of it on the top of the bread. I think it works well to use your judgement and not to use the whole amount. We LOVE sweets and that would have been a little much, even for my family! I used Brommel and Brown yogurt spread in the topping and it worked out fine! Great recipe (with the changes). Will use again and again!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2004
Even my 2 yr old and 4 yr old ate this one. I must admit I was thinking "what am a feeding to my family?" as I glopped the white stuff on the white fish. But, somehow the strange combination does work. The fish was not the least bit "fishy." I also put the spices on top instead of combining it with the mayo mixture (only because I have problems following directions!). It turned out fine. I would definately make this again! We even used light mayo and the Brummel and Brown yogurt spread and it was still good. Enjoy!

Fish in Foil

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2004
This is the best baked fish I ever had. I removed the seeds and membranes from the jalapenos before putting the slices on the fish. It has just the right amount of flavor, without being too spicy. I'm not a big jalapeno fan and ate all the jalapenos after cooking them like this! I just served the foil packets on each plate so people could have their own little bit of "dipping sauce." (I put a lot of lemon juice on the fish before baking). I used frozen Blue Hake fillets that I had thawed before baking. Schwan's sells these and I don't think I will make this fish any other way now. I baked mine for 20 minutes and they were perfect. I probably used half the olive oil and used a lot of fresh lemon juice instead. Thanks, Denyse. This will be a regular meal at our house now!

Absolutely the Best Nacho Dip Ever

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2004
Personally, I loved the recipe. The true test is the Bunco ladies. They ate some, but no rave reviews and I did take some home. I added black olives and skipped the cucumber slices. Thanks, Jeff, for adding a new appetizer to my list!

BOCA® Sausage, Barley and Bean Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2004
Not impressed. I love boca sausages cooked on the stove top, but did not enjoy it in this soup. Would be better without the sausage.

Coconut Cream Pound Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2004
I am soo bummed mine turned out over-done, because it would have been great had I not over-cooked it. I used 2 (stoneware) loaf pans and baked for 1 hr 20 min then checked it and it was already over-done. Will definately check much sooner next time. Believe me, there will be a next time. It was still good and can't imagine how heavenly it would be if it were cooked properly!

Old Bay® Steamed Shrimp

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2004
Not all that flavorful and our shrimp turned out way overdone. I'm not a great cook and am not exactly sure what "steam until tender" means. Are you supposed to keep the shrimp on the heat or take off the heat and just leave the cover on? I think I left the heat on medium low for the 5 minutes and that could have been how I ruined it. I love the idea of shrimp like this, so please post and let me know what I did wrong. Thanks!

Mom's Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2004
This was wonderful. I doubled the recipe and it made 3 regular pies. I cooked it about 10 minutes longer than recipe calls for. It does rise up and it made me nervous, but it turned out great. We loved it cooled in the fridge. The spices were just right (I think the cloves make all the difference...). This will be my one and only pumpkin pie recipe!

Scented Applesauce-Cinnamon Ornaments

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2004
This was a fun project. Definately use something larger than a toothpick for the hole - (we ended up needing to drill a larger hole through all of ours) - a straw would probably work better. Got the cinnamon at Sam's Club for a little over $3 (exactly 3 c.). Took about 3 days to dry if not baked. I would cut them at LEAST 1/4" - probably a bit thicker. We used fabric paint to decorate and craft paint. They turned out really cute! My 5 yr old and 3 yr old had a blast. Also, after paint dried I used spray polyurithane on both sides to preserve. I was worried it would interfere with the smell, but it didn't. All the relatives loved receiving these from the kids this year!

Dough Ornament Recipe

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2004
Lots of fun! Our puffed a little, but still held their shape. I though they turned out really cute. We used fabric markers (worked great for details) and craft paint and glitter glue. Use a straw instead of a toothpick for the hole - toothpick hole too small to put raffia/ribbons/twine through. We used spray polyurithane to preserve and it seems to have worked well. - Very, very cute and relatives loved getting these from the kids.

Kicky Steak Strips with Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2005
We loved this. We made one and a half pounds of steak and double the marinade. I added 1/2 cup of brown sugar to the marinade and it was perfect. I heated the oil in a large non-stick pan so the meat could be in a single layer. I cooked on medium for about 3-4 minutes per side. I guess it depends how thickly you slice the steak. I sliced mine between 1/4 and 1/2". It was snowing here and it was so nice to make such a tasty recipe where I happened to have all the ingredients on-hand. We are going to make this again - soon!

Maple Fruit Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2005
We really didn't like this one. I even used REAL maple syrup and regular whipped topping (but low-fat vanilla yogurt). I was hoping it would be a hit since it's not so fattening, but no go with my crowd.

Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2005
I loved the taste of this pie. I did not give it 5 starts because of the thin unattractive layer it leaves on the top. Really would look unappetizing without some pecan halves thrown on the top part-way through baking. But, the taste is fabulous and my 2 pecan-pie loving friends really enjoyed it. For baking, I pre-heated the oven to 400 degrees and baked for 10 minutes. Then, I left the pie in the oven and turned the heat down to 350 degrees. It was done in another 25 minutes (so 35 mins total baking time) and I probably could have cooked it a little less and it would have been o.k. I think for Christmas, I will put a "spiced pecan" on each slice. I added the pecans to the top about 10 minutes before it was done. What this pie lacks in presentation, it makes up for in flavor and consistancy.

Wacky Mac

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2007
We thought too dry (and I even added 1/2 can tomato soup and 1 c. water). We only added 1 t. each of cayenne pepper and chili powder and a little spicy for us. We used chili w/ just beans. If using some w/ meat, watch the meat portions because of adding the ground beef. Noone liked it enough to make again.
