Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2004
OK - I'm starting this off by saying that I personally do not like ham. But with company coming over on a particularily cold day I thought that a homestyle dinner of ham, scalloped potatoes and steamed veggies would be a hit! The ham was unbelievably delicious! While my husband was carving it in the kitchen, the guests were nibbling at the 'little pieces'!! Super easy, tasty and a big hit! Thanks! A keeper! (oh, I did try some...it wasn't bad..hahaha)

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2004
These muffins were easy and quick to prepare. I used frozen blueberries with great success. A couple of suggestions: do NOT over mix..blend ingredients until just combined. If using frozen berries, drain in a colander first to remove the extra juice. Do not add more liquid to the mix..it should be thick. Use an ice cream scoop to put the batter in to the muffin tin. Very yummy..can be frozen after and reheated. Thanks..will make again!

Coconut Cake III

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2003
This is a super fast and very easy cake to make...15 minutes from pantry to oven. Caution - this is one big sucker and will easily serve many people. I toasted the coconut for the topping as it adds to the appeal. My husband had 2 pieces and said that the frosting is the best part. Me....I had 1 as it had a bit too much frosting for my liking. Oh...I used pecans instead of walnuts. Thanks for the recipe.

Restaurant-Style Hashbrown Casserole

Reviewed: May 20, 2003
OK - I must start by saying that we love Cracker Barrels hash brown potatoes so I just had to try this. I did make some substitutions but that was based on ingredients I had on hand. I shredded potatoes instead of the frozen hash browns and used a can of cream of mushroom soup. My husband had the leftovers for breakfast! I will try this again..following the exact recipe this time as I'm sure it will be a hit. Thanks Holly!!

Raisin Sour Cream Bars

Reviewed: May 2, 2003
I URGE raisin lovers to try these bars. They are quick and easy and the filling is delicious. They keep 4-5 days in the fridge covered with plastic wrap just fine (I know this because I accidently forgot to pack them on a weekend away:) ) They are great with coffee or just as a snack. Thanks Prudence!

Chocolate Cavity Maker Cake

Reviewed: May 2, 2003
Very good recipe..no cake mix taste at all. This was gone at my house in 2 days. It was definatly better/moister the next day so you may want to plan in advance. It's quick and easy. I added a small package of chopped pecans and this gave it a bit of a brownie taste which was really good. Caution - do not skimp on the size on the Bundt pan! Thanks Caitlin.

Ultimate Cranberry Pudding Cake

Reviewed: May 2, 2003
I'm glad I tried this recipe but don't think I'll make it again. The cake itself doesn't have great flavour or texture. The sauce is good and that's what seems to give it the flavour and moistness it needs. I couldn't bring myself to make the full sauce recipe so I cut it in half which is still ample. The guests I served it to last night only had 1 small piece...no seconds. Hey, you've gotta try!

Grammy Burnham's Molasses Cookies

Reviewed: May 1, 2003
When I made a batch of these cookies the FIRST time my husband ate them all. The SECOND time he took them to work and they were gone by lunch. The THIRD time I gave them out to friends to try. Now, people are requesting them and call to see if I can get a batch to them. This is a hit every time. Thanks Hazel.

Asparagus Cashew Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2003
This is a good recipe...a twist on just plain rice or rice with veggies. I made the peas and almonds with good results but added a couple of tbsp. of dehydrated vegetable flakes for additional colour. Next time I'll try the aspargus and cashew. Thanks.

Butterscotch Pudding I

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2003
Good recipe. Based on the prior reviews, I was a bit sceptical but had to jump in and try it. A few tips....I used yellow sugar instead of dark brown and measured 3/4 cup loosely packed. I decreased the butter to a 2-ish tbsp. To keep the lump-factor to a mimimum, stir with a slotted wooden spoon or whisk. Remove from the heat to add the vanilla and butter. Even if there are lumps, keep stirring/beating/whisking...most, if not all, should disappear. The addictiviness (?) of this pudding is HIGH so beware!! Thanks Mary Ann.

Val's Hungarian Jewish Chopped Liver

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2003
5 stars isn't enough! I made this for an appetizer and served with small pita breads and thinly sliced pumpernickel bread. I did omit the additional white onion and parsley in the mixture. My husband saw it in the fridge before the company got here and had a sandwich prior to dinner! He ate so much chicken liver that night, I thought he was going to grow feathers! Keeper? Definatly....and thanks!

Brownie Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2003
We really liked this. Based on some other reviews I did modify this slightly and got terrific results. The cake part was the same but I reduced the sugar and water to 3/4 cup each for the 'pudding'. I used light brown sugar and got a thick pudding consistancy under the brownie. It baked in a convection oven for 35 minutes and I did let it cool and served it warm! Forget about leftovers!

Creamy Coleslaw

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2003
Best 'slaw' yet! I added rice wine vinegar to the recipe instead of white wine (and actually forgot to add the mustard) and we couldn't keep our fingers out of it before it got to the fridge! Lots of freshly grated pepper and a touch of paprika mixed in with the dressing and what a hit.

Riblets and Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2003
What a great recipe...simple and delicious. The ribs - and I used riblets - came out fall off the bone tender. I baked them at 350F for about 1hr, covered with foil. No leftovers here! Thanks!
