Feather-Light Biscuits

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2007
Wow, feather-light is a perfect description! I halved the recipe and used butter instead of shortening. I even goofed up the instructions, and they were still light, tender, and mouth-watering. I followed the lead of Micky MC and let them rise for awhile, and I'll try buttermilk also next time. My Mom gave them a 10, and hubby gave them a 4 (he's not a big biscuit-lover), and they are a hit with me. Thanks for sharing, Eleanore!

Plum-Apple Butter

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2007
This is amazing--couldn't stop sampling. I had Oklahoma sand plums, which are very hard to peel; so I extracted as much pulp & juice as I could by cooking them unpeeled and then running through a sieve. I cooked the resulting plum pulp with Braeburn apples. The only thing I added was a half teaspoon of vanilla at the end. The flavor is tart and intense and fresh--so much better than storebought. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe, Nancy.

Plum Quick Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2007
Absolutely 5 stars--more if I could rate higher! I used Oklahoma sand plums that I purchased from a small farmer's market on historic Route 66. Sand plums are small, juicy, and pulpy, with yellow fruit. Because of the extra moisture, I compensated by using a little less than 1-1/2 cups fruit and by adding another 1/3 cup flour. Made a very tender, moist, and delicately flavored bread, with nice bursts of tart plum and interesting crunch provided by just the right sugar/pecan topping. I've already eaten 2 pieces! I'm delighted to find this recipe and now will have to go find more sand plums! Thanks for sharing, Gloria!

Cinnamon-Raisin Granola

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2007
Excellent flavor and crunch--I love the boil & mix method--saves time in the oven! I might add just a tiny pinch of salt, and I always leave out the raisins ;-) I'll add some nuts next time.

Easy Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2007
Made this for my daughter--her favorite ice cream--and she said to rate it 5, for sure. I would probably rate it 4, but only because I think shaved chocolate would be better in it than chocolate chips--even the mini ones get too crunchy when frozen. I used half-and-half and 1% milk with fine results. Great flavor!

Peach-a-Berry Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2007
This is an outstanding recipe. The raspberries add just the right tartness for the peaches. Mine were mostly nectarines that I had frozen, along with some mangoes I mistakenly thought were peaches :) so there wasn't as much juice as I prefer. I can't wait to try this pie with fresh peaches, but even with nectarines and mangoes, it was delicious!

Ultimate Double Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2007
Fudgy, rich, and chocolatey. I added 1/2 cup chopped pecans for my pecan-loving hubby. Very good recipe & great instructions.

California Grilled Veggie Sandwich

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2007
My daughter & I decided to try this today by using the marinade for Yummy Honey Chicken Kabobs for the veggies. Added basil to the mayonnaise and used slices of sourdough rosemary. The feta provided just the right amount of saltiness for the grilled sweetness of the veggies. Absolutely yummy!

Vodka Smoothie

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2007
So refreshing for a warm 4th of July out on the patio! It was like a combination orange smoothie/strawberry daiquiri. We used homemade Coconut Ice Cream (to which I added pineapple), from this site, in place of the sherbet and a little less vodka (not my favorite). I can see adding rum & pineapple juice instead and making a pina colada smoothie! Endless possibilities. Great recipe!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2007
Might as well add my 5-star rating to the legion of those who have already discovered this wonderful recipe! Truly the best muffins I've ever made--moist, very banana-y, and tender. I subbed brown sugar for white, and like JMCClark added 1 teaspoon vanilla. I got 12 muffins and only baked 15 minutes. Outstanding!

Au Gratin Potatoes II

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2007
I was drawn to this recipe thanks to Emily's mouthwatering photo, and I was not disappointed. Hubby raved, and we both had 2 helpings! I followed Emily's suggestion of using white onion, and I added about 1 tsp minced fresh rosemary. I diced my potatoes instead of shredding, so I baked mine longer. I used sourdough bread crumbs on the top and only used 1/4 cup butter--it was plenty. Even though I love the Company Potatoes from this website, I like this recipe because it uses "real" potatoes, and that really enhances the flavor. This will be a repeater at our house!

Lettuce with Buttermilk Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2007
Very tasty dressing. I used 1/2 the sugar and 1/2 the vinegar (balsamic) due to personal preference and added a dash of dill weed and 1 tsp parm cheese. I had never thought about using a coleslaw-type dressing on lettuce, and it was very refreshing and provided a nice taste contrast to Dad's Best Burgers and Au Gratin Potatoes II, both from this site. Thanks for sharing, Jean.

Dad's Best Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2007
Mom used to make hamburger patties with egg in them, and this recipe took me back to my childhood. I followed the recipe exactly except I used all ground beef. Instead of grilling, we broiled ours just like Mom used to, and we ate them without the bun. Very delicious and a definite keeper!

Chocolate Chip Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2007
Simply awesome! Janis says it all in her description--melt-in-your-mouth, crisp, and buttery. I added 1/2 cup ground pecans and drizzled white chocolate over the top. So easy and one of the best cookie recipes I've found on this site!

Cinnamon Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2007
Very rich, creamy, and and delicious. I only used 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon because I was adding crushed Skor bars, and I added a little more half-and-half. Served with Pecan Sour Cream Pound Cake, from this website.

Pecan Sour Cream Pound Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2007
This is delicious! Made it for my hubby's birthday cake, and he loved it. I added 2 tablesppons sugar to the pecan mix; other than that I followed the recipe exactly. I generally don't have good luck with pound cakes, but I followed the instructions to the letter, and it was perfect--it has a wonderful crunchy crust and that good pound cake flavor. Definitely a repeat recipe.

Chicken Tortilla Soup V

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2007
Wow, this is great soup! I used 12 oz canned chicken breast and added the broth. Used Penzey's chicken soup base to make broth and added more cumin. I only had 1/2 an onion, and it was just enough for us. Also subbed lime juice for lemon. So easy to make and really the best tortilla soup I've had. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe, Sheri S; you have a winner with this one!

Sue's Taco Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2007
Good recipe--just right for a light summertime meal. I had to leave off the beans for my finicky husband and I used more than 1/2 cup salad dressing (Creamy Buttermilk Dressing from this site). Subbed Fritos for the nacho-flavored chips. Thanks for sharing!
