Double Cheesy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2012
I make this without the cheddar; adding horseradish & an apple; & different directions. So high in fat, but everyone likes it. 'Mix together & pour over the potatoes (& a peeled, sliced granny smith apple in the middle layer): 3 1/2c heavy cream, 1/3c horseradish (not to worry, it mellows as it cooks :D), 1/2t salt & 1/2t freshly ground pepper. I place a sheet of foil loosely over a 9x13 then remove it after half an hour. Bake another half hour & then add the parmesan on top while the oven is off, but hot. No stirring. Let it sit in the oven ten minutes or even longer to thicken. Oh, yeah, I bake mine at 400. If I were using a casserole dish, I'd probably go for 350; but I don't know if they'd be as good without sitting in the cream completely as they cook.

Classic Waffles

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2012

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake III

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2012
So weird how submitter's names change. Originally, as in 2003, when I first tried this, it was from Nancy. No big deal, I guess. Just need to remember to save all recipes. Ha! Save all recipes, allrecipes?!? ... okay, okay ... :D ... I subbed sliced peaches & 2/3c peach syrup & 2/3c milk for the part where you add water to the pineapple juice to make 1 1/3cups. Also added 1t salt to balance the sugar, which I reduced to 1c in the cake part. This one is better than my Good Housekeeping Illustrated Cookbook one I've been using. Thanks!

Moist Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2012
'Looks like cornbread. :? Very moist. Maybe 1 more egg would lighten it a little. 'Not heavy, but heavier than most cakes.

Scottish Shortbread IV

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2012
I, surprisingly, liked white sugar ones better than brown. I cream & add the flour, press into a jelly roll pan. 350,10 minutes; 300,40 minutes. Score after 2 minutes. Cool in pan. A little dark chocolate on one side is yum.

Heavenly Shortbread

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2012
I use 4 1/2c flour instead of adding cornstarch. Prick with a fork all over then bake mine ten minutes at 350, then forty at 300. Wait two minutes, then score. Putting a little colored sugar on top before baking is pretty. I've tried many recipes. This simple one is the best. Also good with one half dipped in dark chocolate!

Pumpkin Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2012
12/03 Oldfashioned tasting. Soft, falls apart easily. Bar-cookied them. 4 dozen. They remind me of Archway cookies - kind of inbetween cookie & cake, but more cookielike. Good, but the flavor is not especially pumpkin or oatmeal.

Vel's Christmas Shortbread

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2012
Tried subbing white for brown sugar. Using 4c flour, softer, more buttery taste. Yum. Using 5c, still very good; but not as creamy. Not dry, just less creamy. Yum. The prick holes stayed in the 5c, disappeared in the 4c. 5c, 38 minutes. 4c, 35 minutes.

Best Chicken Quiche

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2012
Onion flakes (dehyrated) would be better than onion soup mix. Fresh, sauteed a little, would be better than that. The beef broth flavor addition isn't so good with eggs. I used half envelope, which is 1 1/2T btw. I prebaked my crust, too.

Cheese Ring

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2012
After reading other recipes & reviews, I changed it just a little. I subbed strawberry preserves & didn't add garlic salt; but did add 8oz lowfat cream cheese, 1/8t salt & 1/2t cayenne pepper. First try, I forgot about the preserves & it wasn't anything special. 'Could tell the cayenne was there, but still not hot, just could tell. With the preserves, soooo muuuuch better. Preserves lessened the spice even more so I'm thinking up to 1t wouldn't be too much if you just want to know it's there, but if you're going for hot, you may want even more.
