Shortcut Refried Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2004
A little soupy for burritos, but a little more bean flour should thicken it up fine. Added a little extra salt and a little pepper and this tasted great. I like refried beans, but not all the fat that goes along with them. This is a great tasting alternative. Try melting some cheese in the original recipe and you would have a great chip dip!

Angie's Dad's Best Cabbage Coleslaw

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2005
Tastes somewhat like what I remember KFC's coleslaw tasting like. I resized this to use a 1lb bag of coleslaw mix and then used this topping. Instead of white vinegar I used rice vinegar. It was great! Definitely plan on letting it sit. Twenty-four hours is necessary, but 48 would probably be even better. I'm planning on making it and leaving it in the fridge to munch on through the week. Thanks!

Zucchini Casserole II

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2003
Really wasn't all that great. Didn't seem to have any consistency beyond mush. Though the taste wasn't too bad, my husband voted it a do not make again.

Tofu and Cheese Stuffed Shells

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2004
This turned out pretty good. I used fresh spinach and carrots for the veggies. I also replaced the onion with some chopped garlic. Next time I will use less garlic and more veggies. Also, I really like my shells stuffed full. This recipe was a little short. My 2 year old loved it. It was reasonably easy to make. Play with the seasonings and veggies to give the recipe more taste.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2006
The cookies were amazing. I have been looking for a soft sugar cookies that could hold its own with or without frosting and these were great. Sweet, but not over powering. I added a little mint extract for fun. Make sure you chill the dough. The longer the harder it becomes. Really and hour did work best. Also, Don't overcook them. When I check on them after 6 minutes they still looked so pale I was tempted to leave them in longer. After they cooled though they were perfect. Some bottoms were just beginning to brown on the edges and that was all.

Tortillas II

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2005
Ok. I was a bit intimidated to begin with, but this was fairly easy to make. I accidentally put 2 tbsp shortening and also left out the baking powder per someone's recommendation. I put everything but the water in the food processor to mix it together. I heated the water in the microwave so it was VERY hot. When the other stuff seemed sufficiently mixed I started pouring the water in a little at a time while it mixed. After about 1/2 to 3/4 of a cup of water it started to ball up and I knew it was done. I just shut it off, pulled out the ball and then put it on the counter to rest. Taste was pretty good, but I think I will tinker a little with it. Thanks for a great recipe!

Cornish Finnish Michigan Pasties

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2003
I grew up in Northern Wisconsin and knew people who would drive to the UP just to get the real pasties. They were always a hit with my family, but I couldn't find the recipe to let my husband try. These were great. I didn't put MSG in it and I was out of rutabagas, but everything still turned out great. Give yourself some time for this one, it is labor intensive. The results are worth it though. It made a good size batch which I froze when we had eaten our fill. Hubby is still taking them with him for his lunches. Thanks again!

Barley and Mushrooms with Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2003
Loved it. I used dried beans instead of canned, and they seemed to soak up a lot of extra moisture. I also added cayenne and some other spices to add a little more flavor. Was great with crusty homemade wheat bread with monterrey jack cheese melted on top.

Cinnamon Ice Cream

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2005
I can't say enough good about this ice cream. Just finished off a bowl and I'm feeling pretty proud. The texture was amazing. It was rich, but in a good way. I tried this without the cinnamon. Instead try adding 1/3 cup cocoa and 1 tsp almond extract or less to taste. Yummy! Thanks!

Peppy's Pita Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2004
I would have given it a 5 but I did tweak it some to make it more to my tasting. First instead of using vegetable oil I used olive oil that had garlic sitting in it over night. It infused just a little garlic flavor into the Pitas. Also, I tried baking them, but they always turned out way too crunchy. Instead, I cooked them in a frying pan over medium heat. I did some with olive oil in the pan and some without. The ones cooked in olive oil I patted dry afterwards and they turned out softer than without. Both were softer than the ovenbaked.

Lemon Ice I

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2004
Tasted good, but not what I was looking for. Be careful when tinkering with the amounts of sugar used. The less sugar you use the more solid the resulting lemon ice will be.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2003
Couldn't decide how to carve my jack'olantern so I made this instead. It was great! I had to use every ounce of willpower to keep from finishing the loaf myself. Will definitely make again.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2003
Went over great with my 2 year old son's class. Even the teachers were asking for the recipe. Ended up quite moist. I wouldn't recommend stacking them if at all possible. Made it without any frosting or glaze and they were still great. Didn't plump up quite as much as I wished, but I really didn't mind once I had a mouthful.

Bread Machine Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2003
Loved the recipe. Made it with whole wheat flour. The smell was so tempting, I hated having to wait. Would make really yummy rolls to go with any dinner.

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2003
I used bread machine yeast and dough enhancer and it was by far the best bread I've ever made.
