Mizithra Browned Butter Pasta

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2010
My yiayia used to make this Greek "macaronia" all the time! It's a favorite family stand-by. Grated parmesan works okay if you can't find mizithra. The secret lies in browning the butter well.

Herman Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2008
Used my Amish Friendship Bread starter for this recipe. The pancakes had a wonderfully light and fluffy consistency. The flavor was nice but next time I will try adding a teaspoon of vanilla as others recommended.

Slow Cooker Swiss Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
I was eager to try this recipe to use up a round steak I had in the freezer. It was certainly edible but "blah," and the meat stayed very tough even after 9 hours. It's too bad because I really wanted to like it!

Green Chile Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
Very tasty! I chopped and sauteed a 6 oz package of fresh spinach with some onion instead of the frozen spinach. I cut the recipe in half and used only four eggs as I was using just one, smallish pie shell.

Herman Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2008
This was a great option for using some of my Amish Friendship starter. The dough seemed to take a really long time to rise, but I'm sure that was because my kitchen wasn't all that warm. Turned out great otherwise. Thank you!

Slow Cooker Reuben Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
Yum, and easy to make! I doubled the Thousand Island as suggested by others. Used pastrami instead of corned beef because that is what I had on hand, and it turned out great.

Joelle's Famous Hot Crab and Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
This was delicious, although I realized after the party that I forgot to add the mayo! I did add a little extra horseradish for more zip and used one 15 oz can of crab clawmeat (from the refrigerated aisle of the store) instead of the small cans of lump meat.

Wake-Up Casserole

Reviewed: May 2, 2011
We enjoyed this. A little salty--will cut the salt next time as the ham made it plenty salty on it's own.

Pepperoncini Beef

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2010
This came out perfect! We spread our rolls with mayo and provolone and then broiled for a few minutes before adding the beef. Yum! My husband added horseradish for an extra kick.

Tuscan Flank Steak

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2013
I really liked the flavor of the marinade, but they were just to subtle to stand out on beef. We're thinking it will be to die for on chicken!

Spinach-Cheese Swirls

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2012
Not bad, but kind of blah. Great idea, though, and worth experimenting with.

Eggnog Thumbprints

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
These were great and everyone raved about them. I piped the frosting into the thumbprints to make a pretty presentation on the plates we gave away for Christmas.

Lemon/Raspberry Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2010
Yum! I forgot to buy yogurt and only had half cup sour cream on hand--added a little milk and lemon juice to make it a full cup, and added an extra tsp. of lemon peel as others mentioned the lemon flavor didn't come through. I loved that this recipe didn't use cinnamon like so many others because I think it overpowers the berry flavor...

Kickin' London Broil with Bleu Cheese Butter

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2008
This was delicious! Next time I'll add a little more bleu cheese to the butter, though.

Lemon Poppy Seed Amish Friendship Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
At the last minute, I realized I had no poppy seeds on hand so I added about a cup or so of fresh blueberries. Also made a glaze of lemon juice and powdered sugar as so many people said this recipe needed a bit more lemon flavor. Turned out great!

Garlicky Quinoa and Garbanzo Bean Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2013
I'd give this 3-1/2 stars if I could. This was a good base salad, but everyone at the table agreed that the garbanzo to quinoa ratio was off. Next time, I'll start with a whole cup of the uncooked quinoa and might experiment with adding more veggies in addition to the broccoli.

Spooky Witches' Fingers

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
The flavor of these is so-so, but the great look makes up for it. I used jam on the nail and base of the finger (instead of gel) to make them look severed. The effect was great!

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
Yum! This turned out terrific. I used "medium" heat wing sauce so that it wasn't too hot fo everyone. (My husband would have been happier with more heat.) Blue cheese dressing drizzled on top of the meat was the perfect touch.
