The Best Steamed Asparagus

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2003
I used a white zinfandel and found this to be wonderful - the way I'll always cook asparagus from now on. Just enough flavor to make it interesting, yet not overpowering so it's still great with spicy main dishes.

Grandma's Slow Cooker Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2003
Excellent! Didn't have garbanzos, so used "chili beans", added cumin and hot pepper sauce until it was not too hot since the slow cooker enhances the spices. Also added a touch of cinnamon, just a little, than enhances the flavor of everything. Makes a lot but made great burritos too so it's easy to eat all of it!

Proper English Cottage Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2003
Very Good! I added seasoning to my own taste, as you usually need to do with any recipe. Added Worst. sauce to meat mixture; used 1-1/4 beef broth and 1/4 cup of burgundy wine. Made my own mashed potatoes with sour cream and garlic. I LOVE the cinnamon and usually add it to any meat recipe. I did use a pie crust (frozen) that I first put in oven for about 8 minutes. I'll be making this one constantly, it's a standout!

Potato Chips

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2005
The straight edge on my grater makes these just thick enough that I can pop them off the plate. Haven't figured out how to make them not stick yet, have tried cooking sprays, etc., but hasn't stopped me from making them all the time! My microwave (which rotates the whole time) takes 8.5 minutes. If I want cheesy flavor, I use the powder in the classic mac and cheese box, sprinkle it during the last minute (approximately). But there is such good flavor to them plain, or if you use olive oil, they let you satisfy a long-term munchie attack in the evenings without guilt. I'd never have guessed I could've found a snack like this that was microwaved!

Moist Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2003
Followed the recipe exactly and have made two batches in 3 days. I prefer these to the ones at the shop in the mall!

Skin-on Savory Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: May 3, 2004
Simply excellent! I've made these enough times that now I play with the sour cream, butter and garlic measurements and they're fantastic if you go by the recipe exactly or do change amounts of things on the list of ingredients!

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
This worked beautifully for me on the first try, using the tip from others to put most of the sauce on the apples, then brushing a bit over the lattice (since how much gets into the filling, runs off or sits on the top depends on how tightly you do your lattice - if I do a more open lattice next time, I'll just drizzle the sauce). I sliced the Granny Smiths about 1/4 to 1/3-inch thick on average so they cooked through beautifully. I had huge, local apples so I just filled the pie using what fit which was about 5 of these apples - I had to just see what fit in my particular pie plate so I did follow the directions - filled and mounded the apples slightly. There are few recipes I feel like I'll stick with after the first try, but this is a definite!

Sweet and Sour Sauce I

Reviewed: May 13, 2005
I loved this - instead of cutting soy sauce down, I used a low sodium soy just aiming for the balance of sweet and sour that I like best for what I was putting it on today. Other than that, I just tasted the mix all along the way and it fit what I was looking for. I used it for crab rangoon - if I want a s&s sauce for eggroll, I'd increase the sweet content maybe but this is a great all-around sauce and I wouldn't be disappointed to use it exactly as written with anything whatsoever. Recipes give you ratios, technique and beyond that, it's personal taste. I didn't compare this to a restaurant, memories of my former favorite, etc., it's just good on its own!

Honey Limeade

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2005
I made this exactly according to the recipe except I didn't have honey, but kept all the other measurements the same and it was perfect for my taste! I like the little extra tartness of lime over lemon.

Turnip Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
Fantastic! I added the full amount of sugar, using brown sugar. Also topped with lots of cinnamon, intentionally hoping for a more dessert-like custard and it's a favorite! I think it'll even be great cold with maybe a little maple syrup. Who knew turnips could cure a sugar craving. Thanks!

Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2005
I made this almost according to directions - but using vegan alternatives and it was fantastic! I doubled the gravy per previous reviews (subbing olive oil for "meat drippings") and just doused everything with it, so STILL there was none left over!

Butternut Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2005
I love this! I had no choice but to substitute canned yams for half of the squash amount because my new dog, who can reach the counters, scarfed down half my roasted squash when I wasn't looking :). Worked just fine with the yams fillin' in, maybe added another dimension in taste. The pineapple was the key to this for me.

Cheesy Turnips and Carrots

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
Fantastic! Made it as a side dish, then ate so much, I didn't bother making the rest of the meal. Ate a bowl of it and can't stop nibbling still. I'm officially a turnip fanatic. Thanks!

Easy Cinnamon Fudge

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
I used real butter and had to substitute light cream (didn't have milk) and worked beautifully! I'll increase the cinnamon a bit next time just because it's a lovely taste in this fudge and not something I would've thought to try - thanks so much!
