Cinnamon Swirl Bread for the Bread Machine

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2012
Stellar! I didn't have walnuts, and kids don't like them anyway. I just used the cinnamon/sugar mixture and it was still fantastic.

Meatball Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2011
This was okay - I used fire roasted diced tomatoes instead of tomato sauce and used orzo for the pasta. I added about half an onion sauteed in olive oil for a couple minutes before adding the carrot, celery, and garlic. Then added the meatballs and liquids along with some red pepper flakes for flavor. Pretty good, but didn't get raves at the dinner table. It does get brownie points for being easy - a great use for pre-made meatballs.

Southern Pimento Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2013
Fantastic! My kids (17, 13, and 12) love this and often request it. I omit the jalapeño because I don't usually have one on hand. I use fire roasted red peppers that come in a huge jar from Costco - they're cheaper and then I have plenty for other things. This spread is so much better than store-bought. I highly recommend it!

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake VII

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
Yum! Quick, easy, and wonderfully old-fashioned. I have my grandmother's cast iron skillet; she is 97. I bet my skillet has seen its share of pineapple upside down cake over the years and this recipe did not disappoint. I needed to bake about 40 minutes in my oven. It fluffed up but did not run over.

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2011
Excellent flavor and very versatile! I made half regular rolls and the other half cinnamon rolls. The family was very happy!

Orange Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2010
Made this in the evening to use for breakfast the next day. I liked this as French toast, but not sure I would want it any other way. I used two whole oranges and made juice out of them in the Blendtec - no water. I think this would make delicious orange-cinnamon rolls as well.

French Cheese Spread

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2013
My son needed some French food for a French party at school. He told me at 10:00 the night before, of course. So, I whipped this up - minus the marjoram and dill because I didn't have any and at that hour I was not going to the store. I added just a dash of worchestire. He took it to school the next morning with a baguette. Even without all the called-for ingredients, it was delicious and I will definitely make it again!

Premier White Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2011
Delicious! All three kids loved these. I somewhat agree with other reviewers that they are not completely 'fudgy' like brownies, but they aren't really cakey either - somewhere in between. In any case, the slight almond flavor is incredible and I will be making these again! To simplify, I melted the chocolate and butter together in a bowl over simmering water and it worked great.

Nonna's Tuscan Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2011
Pretty good - wish that I had seen that the water amount was misprinted. I'll try again with reduced amout of water. Still better than using a commercially made dressing.

White Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2011
Thank you, Sierra, for posting this recipe! This is the white frosting I remember from my childhood in the 70s. My mother used it for chocolate cake until she "discovered" 7-minute-frosting. But, I still like this one better. I thought it was lost to history - I'm so happy to find it again and share it with my family.

Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
Made these for teenage Sunday school group. What I liked: they were quick, easy, and I usually have all ingredients on hand. What I didn't like: they were a little dry, bland, and didn't brown nicely on top. I added vanilla, and held out 1T of the flour to coat the chips in so they wouldn't sink to the bottom.

My Amish Friend's Caramel Corn

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
The words "to die for" come to mind! I used real butter as I cannot imagine using margarine in any recipe. I popped two Whirley Poppers of corn = 1 cup unpopped, and then poured it all into my enormous Staub and mixed, spread onto 2 pans, and baked. This was much easier than I imagined and a super snack - so easy to pack in individual servings, too! Pop your own corn instead of using microwave corn - it really is so much better!

Banana Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
Good, quick & easy - I subbed applesauce for about half the oil. They were very moist, but stuck to the paper cups due to the lack of oil. I like that this recipe has the addition of oats instead of all white flour.

German Apple Pancake

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2010
I think I'm in love! I could've eaten the whole skillet myself. We ate it for dinner alongside cheese grits and bacon. Certainly not healthy, but definitely delicious!

Strawberry and Spinach Salad with Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2010
Yummy! Toasted pecans are so much better than raw - you really must take the time to toast them. I just put them in a skillet with a little butter being careful not to burn them. Also, fine quality balsamic vinegar will change your life - honest, it will! I buy it by the ounce. Oh, so good - like fine restaurant salads!

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2012
I'm giving this 5 stars because it was good, but mostly because there is no waiting period for it to rise. My usual pizza dough takes about 2 hours. I still like my regular crust recipe better, but this one can't be beat for those times when you don't prepare ahead of time. We made calzone, and got 4 from this recipe.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2012
I've made this sauce many times over the years. I keep fresh ginger in the freezer so it's really easy to use freshly grated in this recipe. Such a great sauce to use for all Asian recipes!

Chilled Strawberry Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2007
Yummy! Thanks for the recipe. My 11-yr.-old son ate 5 bowls one night on Carnival cruise. I'm so happy to have a recipe and look forward to trying it with peaches and other fruits.
