Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
Delicious! I doubled the ginger and cloves--I was using an extra strong cinnamon so I added about 2/3 tsp extra of that as well. The flavor was rich and delicious--you could SMELL how delightfully spicy this was. I used a pan to make little gingerbread man cakes and it worked beautifully. Am looking forward to making this into a regular sized cake and topping it with whipped cream or ice cream.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
Delicious, but way too soft. I made them with a butter/oil combo and had to bake them longer & at a higher temp. And even then, they are sticking together in the cookie box! I wondered about cutting the fat and just found virtually the identical recipe to this in my Better Homes &Gardens book. It uses 1/4 cup less butter + baking powder as well as soda. Think I'll try that--healthier that way.

Belgian Waffles

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2011
Okay, but not a patch on "Emma's Belgian Waffles" which handles much better and tastes just as good.

Linda's Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
My 11 yr old daughter said "thank you, Linda!" and my picky 15 yr old ate 2 helpings--last time I made a lasagna recipe she wouldn't touch it. We used ricotta instead of the cottage cheese, diced tomatoes and tomato sauce in place of the tomato products and water here and reduced the mozzarella by half. Next time we make it I am going to try the idea of prebaking it and finishing it the next day. And we will be making this again--it's a real keeper!

Blueberry Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 26, 2010
Made this last night as muffins. Used oil instead of butter, added some dehydrated lemon zest. Baked the muffins at 350 for about 20 minutes-checked them at 15, should have checked at 18 because by 20 some were a little browner than I wanted. But they are delicious. My daughters both love them so this is definitely getting adding to my muffin repetoire!

London Broil I

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2009
Wonderful. I went with the half soy/half Worcestershire sauce variation and used lots of chopped bottled garlic. My picky 9 year old liked it, my 13 year old liked it, my garlic loving husband loved it, and so did I. Definitely a keeper.

Fried Rice Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2007
I think this is a good base recipe for friend rice. I'd omit the sesame oil--I use it in a lot of dishes, but here it doesn't fit the flavor people expect in fried rice. I didn't use it and really tasted like restaurant fried rice to my girls! I too cooked the eggs like an omlette, then rolled it up and chopped it into the rice. I also added some chopped up chicken. We always have lots of leftover cooked rice (husband's Filipino-American!) so I didn't have to make rice, and I used a bag of frozen mixes veggies. Both girls liked it, though my 12 year old wants me to add shrimp next time. And she also thought a little onion would be good too, which makes her onion loving papa proud!

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: May 21, 2007
I added some extra broccoli (about another 1/2 bag) and only 1 quart of broth. I also added some grated carrot. When the broccoli was cooked I pureed most of the soup in my small food processor and added the cheese. When I tasted it, I realized there was no need to add ANY milk or cream--it was delicious as is! Add the cornstarch a little at a time until it reaches the desired thickness. My family loved it and my daughter declared it tasted like the soup she loves at Panera!

Sati Babi

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2007
This is basically the same recipe as my Filipina sister-in-law's, only we add lemon and/or lime juice to the marinade. We also marinate this for at least 4 hours and usually for 24 and cook it indoors in the oven broiler. And you MUST serve this with rice!

Classic Butter Cookies I

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2006
Wonderful dough--I kneaded in a little extra flour and it rolled out beautifully. The cookies bake very quickly, so watch them carefully. I used the dough with a linzer cutter and made cookie sandwiches with jam or Nutella. They were buttery and sweet, but not cloyingly sweet. Definitely a recipe I will use again!

Autumn Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2004
As wonderful as they're said to be! My girls (5 & 9) love them and my husband took a bunch to work, which his coworkers loved! I used a fruit based fat substitute--there's one by Sunsweet and one by Polaners in place of the butter,and skim milk. This really cut the fat and the muffins are moist and delicious. I also omitted the nuts and figs and used dried cranberries--no chopping required.

Seafood Lasagna I

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2004
Delicious, but better if you: 1)Cut the cheese down--it only needs 1-2 cups of mozzarella. Still cheesy and much healthier! 2)Saute 1/2 pound mushrooms and add them to the white sauce. 3)You can use crab substitute (surimi) in place of the crab, and cut both crab and shrimp by 1/2

Emma's Belgian Waffles

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2003
These are absolutely wonderful! I made a test batch at home and my kids (8 and 4) wolfed them with ice cream and fruit. Then I made them for a large party at work and everyone wanted the recipe! They are NOT salty, the texture is excellent, and anyone who thinks a mix is better obviously has never had a real Belgian waffle. Thank you so much for this recipe,Emma!

Easy Cocoa Ice Cream

Reviewed: May 31, 2003
This is fabulous tasting--rich choclate flavor. Mine did not freeze well in the machine, so I poured it into a container and ripened it in the freezer. The texture was just wonderful--my daughter loves this ice cream!
