Whole Wheat Oatmeal Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
Really good wheat bread. The best recipe I've run across so far. The oatmeal keeps it nice and moist.

Tempeh Kabobs with Moroccan Couscous

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2011
This was good, but not great. I was thinking that the whole dish would have a Moroccan taste, but it definitely does not! I would use way less oil next time and the veggies could be easily swapped out for whatever is on hand. I broiled the kabobs for about 10 minutes total, turning every few minutes. I don't feel like the eggplant cooked enough with this method, but everything else would have been burnt or overdone if I had cooked it much longer.

Fresh Semolina and Egg Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2012
I liked the taste of this pasta, but it was DRY!! I have made fresh pasta before, so I don't think the dryness was due to inexperience or poor measuring, etc. Needed at least one more egg, more olive oil, and water to make is pliable. It was a bear to get through our pasta machine because it was so dry. I am trying it again today, with additional liquid to see if that helps.

Brown Sugar Cut-Out Cookies and Icing

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
This is a good cookie option for those who can't have eggs. After cooking, the cookie will not have the firm "bite" that a cookie with eggs would have, but it still tastes good. I made the following changes: added a little extra milk to get the dough to bind together, increased the cooking time to 9 minutes. When I took the cookies out at 6 minutes, they weren't fully cooked and even after cooling fell apart because they were so doughy.

Baked French Toast

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
Loved, loved, loved this! Made some changes based on other's reviews - 6 eggs, 1 1/4c milk, 1 cup cream, cooked uncovered. Hubby loved it and said this is something to cook for company. Will definitely cook this again!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
I would not die for these muffins. Found them bland and very unremarkable. I'll stick to the Better Homes & Gardens recipe.

Strawberry Cake from Scratch

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
This is a great, moist strawberry cake. Much, much better than anything you can get in a box. Usually make this into a layer cake, with fresh sliced strawberries or preserves in the middle, use a stabilized whipped cream icing that's nice and light and doesn't compete with the flavor of the cake. What hubby wants every year for his birthday cake.

Bread and Celery Stuffing

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
Really good, basic celery stuffing. Use it every Thanksgiving with the turkey. Tastes just like what my mom used to make when I was a kid.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
I wasn't too impressed with this recipe. Adding the butter syrup at the end didn't work too well when I made the pie. It didn't seem to penetrate through to all the apples as they cooked. The end result - some apples had no flavoring on them at all, and they were still kind of crispy, instead of the soft, melt in your mouth apples I like in an apple pie. I think the traditional method of tossing the apple slices with sugar/cinnamon and adding pads of butter throughout the pie before placing the crust on top works much better. Wouldn't make this again.

Bumbleberry Pie II

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
Amazing! The best summer berry pie I've ever had. Followed the recipe and it came out perfectly. Have made once with fresh berries and once with frozen. Definitely better with the fresh berries.

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
I didn't really have high hopes for this recipe - it just seemed too simple. But, it was a very good recipe. It's so easy to make I'm sure it will become a staple in our house! I made a few slight changes. Did 1 can crushed tomatoes, 1 can whole. Added a little leftover italian sausage to the meatballs, along with some onion powder.

Barlow's Blackened Catfish

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
We really enjoyed this recipe. Followed the directions as written, and found it a little too salty. Also, did not add the full amount of italian dressing - just enough to coat the fillets. Other reviewers were right...the peppery smoke that comes off of these when blackening is enough to give you a coughing fit, so ventilate well! Will definitely make this again.

Barbeque Pork Two Ways

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2009
Made this the slow cooker method. I loved how tender the meat came out...and definitely loved how easy it was. The sauce was just all right...not really the type of bbq sauce I llike. Will make again, but will make some changes to the sauce.

Baingan Bharta (Eggplant Curry)

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2009
Pretty good. I made it as a main dish, and it wasn't really enough to fill all of us (served with rice). I cooked exactly as directed, and would make some changes if I make it again. Cooking it on high for 10 minutes caused the yogurt to burn on the pan. Overall, it was pretty good, but I would make some changes next time.

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
Liked this because it was so easy and tasted good. Sauteed the onions a little longer than called for and then added in the other veggies. Also, did not heat the tortillas first. Instead, filled the burrito with completed filling, wrapped it all up, topped with some cheese and then popped it in the oven until the burrito had a little crisp and the cheese was melted. Topped with salsa and served. They were a hit!

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2009
Best zucchini bread I've found. Followed some modifications other reviewers suggested. Used 1 cup brown sugar, 1 1/4 cup white sugar. 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce, 1/2 cup oil. Other than that, made just as written. Really, really good recipe. Will make again.
