Squash Braid

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2011
This bread was great when I baked it two days ago, and it is still great! I followed the recipe, but had to add a lot more flour to get the dough to a kneadable consistency. It was really beautiful and soft, but I felt like it needed some more salt, so I will probably triple that amount next time.

Black Bean Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2009
These were great! I used black eyed-peas because that's what I had. I used a teaspoon of brewed coffee instead of instant coffee granules. The texture is great!

Sun-Dried Tomato Basil Orzo

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
I followed this to a "T", except that I added one clove of raw garlic to the pesto mixture and used Romano cheese, I was AWESOME with baked stuffed chicken breasts and salad.

Creamy Peach Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
This is an excellent cake. I have passed the recipe on to many others. I do recommend making it in an oblong pan so the cake doesn't take as long and doesn't dry out. Peach preserves are ok, but I'd recommend using something a bit tangier like apricot or cherry.

Bacon and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
I made a triple batch of this for a church fundraiser and it was well received. I used gouda instead of cheddar as I am in Holland and it is much cheaper than imported cheddar. I also took the advice of others and stirred in some creme fraiche to add some creaminess. Next time, I might save some potatoes to add later on, as many of my potatoes had dissolved by the time we served.

Cheryl's Spinach Cheesy Pasta Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2008
This was pretty straightforward, but I am lot in love with it. The pasta mixture needs extra seasoning-- salt, pepper, garlic. It was really filling, though!

Excellent Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2007
I have made this recipe twice for crowds and it has been a big hit! I only do 2 things differently. First, I saute an onion in with the butter in the beginning. Also, I have thrown in cubed potatoes with good results. This is a great "cheese soup base" that could be varied many ways-- chicken, carrots, potatoes, Kielbasa, etc.

Chewy Coconut Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2007
I made these for a church get-together and they were a big hit! I used butter instead of shortening, increased the coconut to 1 cup, left out the nuts and used 1/2 almond extract and 1/2 vanilla. They were amazing. My husband is VERY picky about his cookies, and he loved these.

Molasses Crinkles

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2006
These are the cookies my grandmother has made for my entire life. They are now my husband's favorite. They are the best, chewiest, spiciest cookies ever. I have made them hundreds of times in my life. If they are puffy, you didn't use enough fat. Stir some more shortening or butter into the batter and try again. Also, NEVER roll the balls in sugar. Simply dip the tops in sugar before placing on the cookie sheet. This way the sugar on the bottom doesn't burn. Finally, after you have pulled them out of the oven,, hold the cookie sheet about 2 feet from the floor and drop it. The cookies will flatten as the extra air leaves them. They will be even more chewy!

Ginger Veggie Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2006
This recipe was a big hit with my husband. Like everyone else, I made some changes. I added more ginger, because we love it. I also used chicken stock instead of water, and I added about a Tablespoon plus a teaspoon of sugar. Forget about the weird stes to this recipe. Stirfry the veggies in oil until they just start to get tender. Add all the other ingredients, stir to coat and you are there!

Snickerdoodles II

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2006
These are very traditional snickerdoodles. The only thing I do differently is to dip the tops in the cinn/sugar rather that roll the whole cookie in it. This way, the sigar doesn't burn on the bottom of the cookie. I also do this with molasses crinkles.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2006
This is a good basic formula for apple crisp-- except for the water. Apples provide enough natural juice. If you have dry apples, just pour a very small amount (1/8 cup) of water over the apples before adding the topping. Also, the topping needs salt and spice. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt along with some cinnamon and ginger. I put ginger in with the apples, too. My crisp was killer. The filling was not runny at all. The topping was crumbly and buttery. It was excellent.

Country Oatmeal Cookie in a Jar

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2003
I just made 8 of these to give away as Christmas gifts. I baked one batch to see how they were and I LOVED THEM! These are the chewiest and best chocolate chip cookies EVER! They don't have the texture of an oatmeal cookie-- more like a chocolate chip cookie with some oatmeal. I made 2 jars with a slight variation. I used cinnamon chips and topped off the jar with finely chopped walnuts. I'm sure they'll be great. This is a good recipe to use as a base.

Sweet-Potato Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2003
This is a FABULOUS recipe! I have been looking for a sweet potato muffin recipe for a long time. The ONLY changes I made were to use Golden raisins (soaked in hot water first), dark brown sugar, and to add bigger chunks of sweet potato at the end. I used the 4 cups of shredded potato, but when I was putting the batter in the pan, I added a few chopped pieces of blanched sweet potato to each muffin. The chunks are tatsty and a nioce reminder of what is in the muffin. The shredded pieces all but disappear!

Chicken and Corn Chowder with Thyme

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2003
this is a good recipe for a great chowder. My only suggestion is to add a good dash of sherry (or cooking sherry) at the end. It makes the whole soup taste rich and gives it a beautiful aroma!

Grilled Chicken with Fresh Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2003
This was an excellent recipe! We used bone in chicken breasts and added red pepper flakes, a little brown sugar and EXTRA GINGER to the recipe. At least, I think it was extra ginger. The amount isn't really clear in the directions. We used the remaining salsa (it makes a lot!) on shrimp a couple days later. It was truly wonderful! Thanks, Rimi!

Beer Butt Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2003
I gave this 5 stars because it gave us a great starting place for our own version. Like other reviewers, we used the oven instead of the grill. However, at my father's paranoid insistance, we wrapped the beer cans in tinfoil. We rubbed the outside with "montreal chicken seasoning" and put butter, FRESH chopped garlic, rosemary and paprika. The chicken was moist and delicious! I highly recommend this cooking method!
