Best Ever Brisket

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
FANTASTIC recipe! I added two additional ingredients: 4-5 sliced onions (to set the brisket on and they are delish to serve with the gravy over the brisket) and a bottle of beer in addition to the beef broth. Resting the meat is the key to juiciness, and with a brisket, make sure you cut against the grain. This was to die for!

Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
I made this salad twice over the holidays. The first time I made it I used two heads of romaine lettuce and made the dressing as directed. The salad was swimming in the dressing! The second time I also used two heads of romaine and cut the dressing in half and it was perfect. I also decided to use craisins instead of regular dried cranberries and liked it very well. A great tip I read from another reviewer was to store the chopped apple and pear in the dressing when transporting the salad so they don't turn brown - great idea!

Smooth Sweet Tea

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2008
This is perfect sweet tea! I cut back on the sugar (my sweetness preference) and I use a combo of 4 regular Lipton tea bags and 2 orange & spice tea bags. Very refreshing!

Cinnamon Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2008
These are perfectly delicious as written. I tossed my mini chocolate chips right into the flour so they were coated and wouldn't sink to the bottom of the muffins. They are very moist and delicious. If yours aren't moist, you either over-mixed them or over-baked them! My kids couldn't keep their hand off them!

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2007
These were really good! I did change the recipe up as others mentioned using cream of chicken soup and adding chicken taco seasoning. I also have to agree with another reviewer that this fills 6 - 6" tortillas, not the 12" tortillas. I made this with the Mexican Rice I recipe and it was a great meal!

Mexican Rice I

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2007
This rice was great! I added 1/2 can of drained petite diced tomatoes, along with a chicken bouillon cube and followed the rest of the recipe as written. I have to beg to differ on the serving size though; this rice fed my family of 4 and I can't imagine getting 7 servings out of it. Great recipe!

Authentic German Potato Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2006
This is excellent - our entire family enjoyed it! I've made it twice in the last week, and my daughter asked me to make it again to take along camping this weekend. A HUGE timesaver I found is using two 15 oz. cans of potatoes. I drain them, then slice them in my food processor and follow the rest of the recipe as written. I bet it easily cuts the prep time in half! Great recipe!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
Great base recipe if you make changes like others have suggested. I used 1/4 c. applesauce & 1/4 c. oil, added 1 tsp. vanilla, cut the baking powder to 2 tsp, and omitted the nuts and topping all together. They turned out wonderfully and were a big hit!

Mocha Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2006
Excellent muffins if you decrease the butter/margarine by half, and only use 3/4 c. sugar. I also only used 2 bananas and they were perfect! My kids LOVE them!

Chewy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2004
These were really wonderful cookies! I did make alterations like others suggested; added 1/2 cup of peanut butter and decreased flour by 1/2 cup. I made these with a cookie scoop and got 5+ dozen!

Chunks of Glass

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2003
This was GREAT! I made it for my daughter's birthday party and everyone loved it and there wasn't any left by the end of the party; that RARELY happens with jello. I omitted the graham cracker topping, I thought it would ruin the look. I actually don't have a gelatin mold; I used a bundt cake pan and it worked out perfectly. This is a PERFECT gelatin salad for those of us who don't like fruit floating in our jello!

Soda Pop Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2003
I made this for my daughter's birthday and used cherry gelatin & cherry soda. It was tasty and everyone thought it was "interesting". It definitely needs to be eaten in a day or two, otherwise it turns to mush.

Barbequed Marinated Flank Steak

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2003
This was a great recipe! I added chopped garlic to it and marinated it for 48+ hours. We took it camping this weekend and shared it with friends who also wanted the recipe. For those reviewers who say it was tough, remember that you need to slice flank steak against the grain!

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: May 28, 2003
These were EXCELLENT! Even my kids enjoyed them because the meat was so tender. I sauteed 8 oz. of sliced mushrooms in 1 T. of butter and added them to the soup mixture. YUM!
