Basic Hummus

Reviewed: May 1, 2003
This is a good recipe for hummus, but is even better when you toast the sesame seeds in a dry skillet until they pop, puree with the olive oil to make a drizzly paste, then add the rest of the stuff. I like to coat the top with olive oil and serve with toasted pita. Yummy! And good for you.

Snappy Green Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2003
I could eat this all day, but definitely use fresh, steamed green beans and red wine vinegar.

Tomatoed Pork

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2009
We made this in the crock pot with two cans of tomatoes and jalapenos instead of the fresh jalapenos, and we really like it. We've already made twice, once to eat in tortillas, and once we shredded the meat and used it for chilaquiles. Yum!

Greek Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2004
This recipe has been in my family for many years! We're not Greek and we had no idea this was a Greek recipe. We chill the dough in balls and roll it out thin, then cut it into shapes with cookie cutters and decorate with Christmas decorations. The best sugar cookies ever.

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
When I made this, I think I added too much water, because it was more of a broth than a glaze. I rate it a 4 because I made it wrong. My boyfriend loved it however. I accidentally bought tenderloin instead of loin and the meat was moist and tasty.

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
This soup is delicious. I followed the recipe exactly. My only modification was adding a splash of dry white wine, and using half the amount of butter. We really liked how rich it was, despite using fat-free milk and light sour cream. High-quality Hungarian sweet paprika is a must!

Sweet and Sour Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2004
kind of bland. Next time I'll double the vinegar and apricot jam. I used mandarin oranges instead of apricots and added some almonds.

Almond Cookies III

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
Mmmmm delicious almond cookies. I added the extra almond extract, and then while the butter and sugar were creaming, I poured in about a cup of sliced almonds. A sliver of toasted almond topped each one. Definitely a keeper!

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
I made these using whole wheat flour, 1/2 the amount of oil and reduced the sugar, also using a "baking blend" of brown sugar and sucralose. I ended up not liking them because of the artificial sweetener flavor, but my BF loved them. He said it was like a big oatmeal cookie with less fat and sugar. I gave it four stars even though I didn't care for them, but that was my fault and not the recipe. I will make them again and add some unsweetened applesauce to make up for the reduced oil, and also use real sugar this time. Can't beat the real stuff! Just use less of it.

Gramma's Apple Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
This was described as "heavenly" and made people forget all about Thanksgiving pies. So delicious. We took the advice in reviews and used a water bath, which made it soft, creamy, and perfect. Added a shot of brandy and some pecans to the sauce. Oh yeah, and my boyfriend used half-and-half instead of milk! Did I mention it's really good?

Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2011
Delicious! Pasta salads don't usually excite me, but this one has such great reviews, I decided to try it. I love cilantro and so I knew it couldn't be all bad, and it's perfect! I'm glad I followed the other reviews and cut the oil back to 1/3 cup. Like other reviewers, I also added grated carrot, fresh ginger, diced red bell pepper, and sugar snap peas. This is exactly what I'm looking for to take in my lunch! Thanks for the recipe and the helpful reviews. Another AR winner.

Quick and Easy Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
I loved how easy they were to make, and the chocolate flavor was light and cocoa-ey, instead of dense and fudgy. Brownies are usually too intense for me, but I liked these, even though I only got 2 - my BF devoured the rest. He loved them!

Spicy Cranberry Chutney

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
Made this for a pre-Thanksgiving trial run and we really liked it. We love trying new, different things. Cooked it until the cranberries popped as others said in reviews. We'll be bringing it to the relatives' for Turkey Day!

Apple Crumble Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2003
Good, but recipe needs to mention that the butter should be softened before cutting into the flour mixture. Cold butter doesn't make streusel. I put some oatmeal into the flour, next time I'll put more.

Banana Oatmeal Crumb Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2010
I made this cake into muffins. I'll have to make it again because I didn't let the butter and sugar cream long enough. It was still tasty though and we really liked the crumb topping. Next time I think I'll put nuts inside the cake too because they kept falling off the top.

Johnny's Biscuits

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2004
I had my doubts about these biscuits because of the sugar, and the final step of dipping them in flour. I've always made rolled biscuits, not drop. But these were delicious biscuits! Great recipe! I had to use margarine because I didn't have either shortening or butter, but they were still great. My new biscuit recipe!

Whole Wheat Pumpkin-Applesauce Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2011
When I made these, I used half whole wheat flour and half AP flour. It didn't say how full to fill the cups, which gives an idea how much they rise; I filled it almost full and the muffins were nicely domed like the main photo. I doubled the recipe to share with friends and got a little more than 2 dozen... not that I am complaining, these are delicious muffins! nice and moist with intense pumpkin spice flavor. So good with tea. A winner!
