Hash Brown Casserole II

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2005
What I love about this recipe is its versatility. I browned a pound of sausage with the onion and added it to the mixture. Also since I only had half a cup of cheddar cheese, I shredded an additional cup & a half of processed cheese. I used mushroom soup instead of chicken, and I didn't have cornflakes, so nothing but a sprinkle of parmesan cheese went on the top. I also left off the additional 1/4 cup melted butter, and since the processed cheese is so salty, I only used 1/4 teaspoon salt. It was a delicious main dish and would make an excellent breakfast casserole. Our family of 3 had generous portions and only ate half the casserole. My husband, who never likes leftovers and is not crazy about anything in a casserole, loves the leftovers.

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!

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!

Butter Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2007
I was out of shortening and needed a pie crust using all butter, and this one was perfect. I added more water, but other than that, it was an excellent recipe. It made the most pliable dough I've ever worked with and rolled easily into the size I needed, which was deep dish. It was rich and delicious, maybe not quite as flaky as one made with shortening, but I was not disappointed!

Sweet Potato Pie I

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2007
I asked my Mom if she would like a baked sweet potato for dinner, and she said she'd rather have a sweet potato pie! Since I had never baked nor eaten one, I chose this recipe because it seemed the easiest. We loved it--it was very much like a pumpkin pie. I used unsweetened coconut milk for the milk because I needed to use it. I think I'll cut back on the nutmeg next time. Delicious flavor and creamy texture--great pie!

Chinese Chicken Fried Rice I

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2007
We really enjoyed this recipe. I used a teaspoon of sesame oil and 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil, only 4 cups of rice, and left out the bell peppers. Good, basic recipe for your own additions, but I loved the pea pods!

Deep Dish Layered Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2007
I was drawn to this by What A Dish's beautiful photo. My husband was at first dismayed that he wouldn't be using bottled salad dressing; then he was then pleasantly surprised after tasting the salad. I left out the mushrooms, bell peppers, and peas (otherwise he wouldn't touch it!), but even with the omissions, the salad was delicious. I loved the addition of curry powder to the dressing.

French Bread Rolls to Die For

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2007
Very good recipe! I used 1 cup WW pastry flour for part of the flour and honey instead of sugar. I tried to make these into hot dog buns, but I had no idea how, so they ended up as huge hoagie-type rolls! Too much bread for our hot dogs, but they were delicious.

Orange Yogurt Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2007
Buttery and delicious with a hint of orange. I baked mine in 2 smaller loaf pans for about 40-45 minutes and doubled the glaze, to which I added a teaspoon of Cointreau ;-) I'm not a fan of orange peel, so I added 1/4 teaspoon of orange extract and will add more next time. This one will go into my favorites folder!

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!

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!
