Bananas Foster II

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2005
I've made this twice now, first time used rum flavoring and 2nd time used Meyer's Dark Rum. I thought it was a little too liquid using 3-1/2 T of rum, but my family loved it just as it was. It served our family of 3 generously. The flavor is rich and addictive.

RamJam Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2007
This was just delicious! I subbed rosemary for the Italian seasoning, and like LadyJayPee, I used low-sodium soy sauce and olive oil. We sliced it for our chicken caesar salad, and we were raving about the flavor. Great recipe!

Banana Cupcakes

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2007
These were delicious, although I overbaked mine just a tad. I added some dark rum & cinnamon to the batter and some rum flavoring to a brown sugar icing that I found on another website. Very good flavor and a great recipe!

Una's Cheddar Beer Bread (bread machine dough cycle)

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2007
Update 5/27/07: I made this over a month ago, and today I pulled a loaf out of the freezer. Thawed & reheated, it is just as flavorful and tender/chewy as it was the day I made it. Awesome bread! ***Original review 4/17/07: This bread is delicious. I made it manually, and I adjusted the ingredients by adding dill seed & dill weed and smoked sweet paprika; I did not add cayenne, marjoram, or basil. I used butter instead of margarine, and I chose an Amber Bock dark lager. The texture was slightly chewy, and the bread was fragrant with the cheese and beer aroma--made the kitchen smell wonderful.

Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2007
I ran out of time and had to saute the asparagus in the butter, instead of roasting in the oven, and I poured the sauce over, covered & let it steam for about 3-4 minutes. It was awesome. I love asparagus, but the sauce was incredible with a wonderful rich flavor, reminiscent of au jus. My 94 year-old Mom loved it--she asked me what was in the sauce, and when I told her, commented that I had become a gourmet cook--the ultimate compliment!

BLT Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2007
During dinner my husband commented "this really tastes like a BLT--very, very good!" So this is a home run in my book, because my husband, who doesn't eat tomatoes on anything except bacon & tomato sandwiches, loved this & wants me to make it again. I used iceberg lettuce, and for the dressing I used part fat-free mayo, half buttermilk & half 1% milk, about half the garlic powder, and added in a sprinkle of dried basil. Campari tomatoes really put this over the top. This one will be in the 5-star keeper file!

Texas Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2007
Good basic recipe to add your own touches. I did half black beans and half garbanzo beans, added a small can of V-8 instead of the can of diced tomatoes, and did not add any chicken broth. I didn't use a crockpot but just simmered on the stove and ended up with a thick, delicious, and healthy soup that I served with sour cream and tortilla chips. Loved it!

Cherry Mash Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2007
Very good & very rich. I didn't have peanuts, but I did use chunky peanut butter. I can see where the addition of salted peanuts would help cut the sweetness. We really enjoyed this, but the remainder is going to the office tomorrow!

Green Bean Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2007
This is the best recipe I have ever used for green beans. My only regret is that I didn't have sesame seeds, but I don't think this dish could have tasted any better than it did. I used 3 cans of drained green beans instead of fresh. Excellent recipe, Robin!

Monterey Ranch Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2007
My husband rated this 5-stars & raved about it during dinner. I had salami that needed to be used, so I added about 1-1/2 cups to the mix, along with some Italian seasoning and garlic powder. Sprinkled parmesan cheese over the top. I didn't use the butter--I just broiled one side before spreading the mixture on the other side. Quick and delicious!

Plain and Simple Sourdough Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2007
We loved this and used it for sandwiches with leftover Easter ham! I added a teaspoon of sugar and a tablespoon of salted butter; only used 1 teaspoon salt. I made it by hand, let it rise as a french-type loaf, slashed it and baked at 400 for about 20-25 minutes. Delicious!

Apricot Brown Sugar Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2007
My ham was smaller, but I went ahead & used the full amount of glaze. We loved the flavor, and my ham was tender & juicy & the glaze was a sweet & tangy complement to the ham. I used 2 teaspoons regular mustard in place of the dry mustard.Great recipe Roz21, and I will definitely use it again!

Cranberry Applesauce Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2007
I think these need a little more sugar with the tartness of the cranberries, but my Mom thought they were perfect! The muffins are delicious and will be great with some honey or jelly. I think I'll take a note from jungle jean's suggestion of blueberries and add them with the cranberries next time. I used Holiday Cranberry Applesauce from this site; it includes red hot candies in the ingredients, and it made the muffins a little pink! I left out the nuts. Great recipe, and one I will definitely try again.

Granola Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2007
I was quite happy to find this recipe, because I had some leftovers to use--Almond Maple Granola and Holiday Cranberry Applesauce (both from this site.) The applesauce was red from the red hot candies in the recipe, and it gave the bread a rosy hue! I made this by hand, and I will include more yeast next time, because it took quite awhile to rise, and the bread is fairly dense. The only thing I left out was the cinnamon, and I'll include it next time. The taste is awesome, and I can't wait to have it toasted. Great recipe, Star--thanks for sharing.

Cherry Cheese Delight

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2007
We loved this--I halved the recipe but put it in a pan larger than I should have, so the crust was too thin and consequently stuck to the bottom & was hard to lift out of the pan (I may have baked a little too long too). In other words, it wasn't pretty, but it tasted great! I loved the brown sugar/praline-type crust. Very easy and delicious.

Glazed Lemon Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2007
This reminded me of lemon cakes that used to be brought to church suppers. I made it for my Mom, who loves lemon anything, and she said it melted in her mouth. I used 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 cup applesauce and fat-free, sugar-free instant pudding mix. I made a little extra glaze because we like for it to soak in & around the cake. I used Sprite and love the lightness that it lends to the texture, and I used a Duncan Hines classic white mix. Just a great, classic recipe--thanks so much, Missy!

Cowboy Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2007
We thought this was really good comfort food. I used all Yukon gold, only 2 carrots (at hubby's request), and a cup of freshly cooked corn scraped from the cob. For cheese I used American, and I left out the jalapeno pepper (hubby again). I liked the fact that it was lower in fat, and I loved the addition of corn--adds a nice crunch & a bit of sweetness. A very flavorful dish!

Soft Garlic Breadsticks

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2007
We loved these--the parmesan helped make them delicately crisp, but they were soft inside and so delicious. I was concerned about the garlic--because the dough smelled strongly of garlic while it was rising--but it was perfect. I reduced the salt a little and brushed with butter mixed with garlic powder. Excellent recipe!

Sauerkraut Rye Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2007
I was attracted to LynninHK's photo of this bread, and although mine didn't rise much or produce as beautiful a loaf as her picture, the bread was dense, savory, and delicious. I added a heaping tablespoon of caraway seeds because I love the aroma and 2 teaspoons of unsweetened cocoa powder to make the bread darker. Had a slice with butter straight out of the oven, then used the rest for Reuben Sandwich I, on this website.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: May 3, 2007
I guess I'll add my 5-star rating to the host of others for this exceptional dish. This is my first time preparing tilapia, and my hubby only likes fried fish, so I was a little apprehensive about what he would think. He declared it a winner! I was impressed with the taste of the topping with the delicate flavor and firm yet buttery texture of the fish. Loved it!
