Sour Cream Chocolate Chip Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2003
My family loved this cake. I am not a chocolate chip fan but I liked this recipe because it was easy to make, no frosting is required or desired(makes it easy to transport in bag lunches or for picnic lunches). "Cake in the hand",no fork required! Do not forget to add the vanilla that is mentioned in the ingredients but neglected in the directions.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2003
Beautiful presentation! Tastes more like a taffy apple pie than the traditional apple pie. Next time I will add traditonal apple pie spices and see what I get. For those of you who elect to split the sauce between the apples and top crust(which I recommend) have your lattice strips cut and ready to go before you prepare sauce. This way you will avoid the "sticky sauce" problems that others have encoutered. You will need to work efficently.

Baked French Toast

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2003
To avoid the the "soggy bread" complaint, eyeball your bread mixture. You need to consider the density of bread and size of eggs used. I used 1.25 lbs. of french bread and 10 eggs(med). I reduced brown sugar to 1 cup and used only 1/2cup butter. I highly recommend using maple syrup instead of corn syrup. Also, I tore my bread into egg size pieces instead of slicing. This was delicious. Like a bread pudding--I would make it often if it was not so fatting. Ohhhhh it would be blissful to a skinny person!

Bubble Pizza

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2003
Easy and very good---too good if your know what I mean! I used the cheapest buttermilk biscuits available. Also used less than 1 ounce of pepperoni diced very small.Used 15 ounce can of pizza sauce. Used italian sausage instead of ground beef---browned and rinsed it very well. Turned out great, most certainly not dry or doughy.

Chicken a la King I

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2003
Easy and very good. I can not imagine leaving the pimentos or the green peppers out as others have suggested---it just would not be Chicken a la King without! Next time I will try to cut back a little on the butter and use evaporated skim milk in place of regular milk in an attempt to spare some fat calories and not loose the rich flavor.

Strawberry Fluff

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2003
I made this recipe several times. I love it but I it was a little too sweet for my taste---either way, too much sugar, too much aspartane. I tried one package of flavored jello with a package of a package of unflavered geletine and it was perfect!

Blue Cheese Burgers

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2003
Very good recipe just as is. The blue cheese flavor is profound (I can not imagine adding more). Probably not a kid friendly recipe but a must try for more developed taste buds! Try this with ground turkey---it is great!

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2003
ATTENTION all coconut lovers,this is the recipe for you! Easy and very good! I now am on the hunt for a great a pinnaple cake recipe which I believe would be a beautiful thing with this frosting. I used it on a lemon cake. Frankly what ever your cake---it will really be all about the frosting!

Smoked Salmon and Egg Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2003
I made this with canned salmon and with smoked salmon and let me tell you there is a big difference in the results if you use anything but smoked salmon---smoked is the way to go! I used 2T dried dill. Loved it on Chicago flat bread!

Easy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2004
Easy and very good. I used onion powder (unfortunetly no onions eaten by this family) also kicked it up a knotch with a little powdered ginger, seasoned bread crumbs, celery salt and a little balsamic vinegar in sauce. What is everyone in the reviews talking about " too sweet"?---"Two cups BS",the recipe reads 2T BS!

Judy's Strawberry Pretzel Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2004
This is most certainly not a "salad" or a "jello mold", nothing that resembles low cal here! This is truly a delicious cheese cake dessert. Next time I will make this with less sugar, butter and low fat cool whip and cream cheese---I do not think these changes would hurt the recipe at all.

Swedish Cardamom Meatballs

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2005
There is no question in my mind that 1/2 cup sugar is a typo error,try 1T or less. I used only 1/2 cup butter in the total recipe and used 2 cans evaporated skim milk instead of cream. Also, added mushrooms.I personally loved the blend of spices in this recipe. Do make this if you do not have time for kitchen clean up.

Tex-Mex Grilled Corn Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2005
Great! Low cal too. Unless you really like hot reduce the chipotle powder in half. I have also made this with chile powder instead of the chipotle and I prefer the chile powder.Absolutley everyone asks for the recipe when I make this. Easy too!

Roasted Sweet Potatoes & Onions

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2006
Easy and very good. I did not peal the potatoes. I used Enova oil instead of olive oil. Next time I will use chicken broth instead of the Amaretta--it made it a little to sweet for my taste. The toasted almonds really made this special. I can not wait to eat the left overs tonight!

Cooky Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2006
The best cookie ever! Be sure to flatten them with a glass. Cool cookie for about 5 minutes before handling, they a a little fragile when they are still warm. I made these for a baby shower and added a cup of buttersotch morsels and everyone said they were the best cookie they ever tasted (cut back a little on the sugar if you do this.
