Million Dollar Pie I

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2007
We enjoyed this as a light summer dessert. I did leave out the oranges and used a pecan shortbread crust. Thanks for sharing, Glenda!

Teriyaki Onion Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2007
On a whim, I tried these; told my family the hamburgers had a secret ingredient. My daughter, who never likes my burgers, said they were the best burgers she's ever had. My husband, who like his burgers plain with no seasoning, said they were great. The only change I made was to season about 2 lbs of meat using these ingredients instead of one. I don't think my family will let me try anything new again, they are so sold on this recipe!

Lemon Blueberry Drop Scones

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2007
My first time making scones, and I'm sold on these! I only had 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt, so I added some cream to make up for the liquid. My frozen blueberries were fine, but fresh would be awesome. These are a definite keeper, and I will try the lemon yogurt next time.

Chicago Dog Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2007
I used regular wieners; added FF mayo to make the dressing somewhat like a coleslaw dressing--cut back on the mustard. Used coleslaw mix and dill & sweet pickle relishes. Randy really liked it.

Early Morning Oven Roasted New Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2007
Delicious! I did half olive oil/half butter and I roasted for twice the amount of time, with frequent stirring, because I love my potatoes crispy. Served them in Caesar Chicken Potato Salad from this site.

Caesar Chicken Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2007
I loved this salad. I did tweak it a bit by roasting the potatoes and marinating the chicken. My husband did not care for potatoes in his salad, but I thought it was very satisfying, so I'm giving it 5 stars! Thanks for sharing, Sarita!

Fruit and Cream Pie I

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2007
I was attracted to the beautiful photo for this recipe and like the photographer, Lindy, I used a shortbread-like crust with a bit of sugar in it and made tart shells for this excellent filling. It is light, fresh, fruity and creamy--just perfect!

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!

Marinated Steak

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2007
Excellent marinade for our thin-sliced steaks. Great flavor and very tender. Love the addition of the pineapple juice.

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.
