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!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2014
As others stated, this recipe needs to be doubled to feed a family. I also added a little vanilla, only 2 tablespoons of vinegar for a doubled recipe (I usually use 1 T vinegar per 1 cup of milk), and a little extra milk because I thought the batter was too thick. These were much better than a box mix, and I always have these ingredients on hand. They were a great Sunday evening breakfast for supper, with fresh strawberries and whipped cream.

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!

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
Very good stew! My kids really liked it - my 10 yr old son ate 3 bowls! I didn't use my slow cooker. Instead, I browned the flour-dredged meat in my cast iron dutch oven then added all the veggies and broth and popped it in 250 degree oven and let it cook all morning and while we were at church. The house smelled amazing when we got home. Cook time was about 5 hours. Next time I would add more liquid as I like more broth in my stew. With homemade cornbread it was a great meal!

Easy Broccoli Quiche

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
A great way to use up leftover cooked broccoli - served with hot rolls and fresh pineapple - yum! I had to bake it for about 45 minutes because it was still too jiggly after 30 minutes. All 3 kids and husband liked it too.

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.

French Baguettes

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2010
My 15-year old son (who loves bread) said that this one is amazing. We made sandwiches with the leftover Christmas Honeybaked ham - they were great! I followed the recipe exactly and was very pleased with the outcome - not a super-crusty French bread.

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!

Strawberry Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2011
So easy and delicious!! My 3 kids can't get enough of this. I had some strawberries that were a little past their prime and this recipe was perfect for them. I added a little brown sugar and oatmeal to the topping. I'm sure this would be great when blueberries and peaches are in season too. This will be a staple in my recipe box! You should give this one a try!

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.

Excellent flavor and very versatile! I made half regular rolls and the other half cinnamon rolls. The family was very happy!

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.

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!

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.

Pumpkin French Toast Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2012
I really liked this. It's so easy that I made it two days in a row. Once for my family and once to take to my Bible study group. I added an extra T of sugar both times. The second time I subbed 2t pumpkin pie spice for all the spices - I didn't really notice that it made a difference. My store didn't have Texas toast so I just used a regular one pound loaf.

Easy Lemon Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2013
My kids love this. I've made it several times over the past few years - it's quick and easy when you need a potluck dessert. I only use 2T lemon juice for the topping - otherwise, it would be too runny, but I've only made it in a bundt, runny might be fine in a 9X13.

Fantastic! These were a hit with all 3 kids and the hubby. They took our burgers to a whole new level. I'll definitely make them again.

Ex-Girlfriend's Mom's Salsa Fresca (Pico de Gallo)

Reviewed: May 28, 2013
Really great! My 12-yr-old daughter couldn't stop eating it. I made this to go with the grilled fish tacos on this site. Next time I think I will use a sweet onion instead of red. I think the red onion is a little strong and competes with the flavor instead of complementing it.
