Pickled Asparagus II

Reviewed: May 4, 2004
This is a good recipe, spicy, but not too hot. It took 2# asparagus to make 1 qt.Didn't have white wine vinegar, so used red wine vinegar. Would advise to use a tall jar so you don't have to trim so much off bottom. Will try this with green beans later. Be sure to use a wide mouth jar.

Hawaiian Spareribs

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2005
I thought this was a 4, but my wife said definately a 5. Changed a couple of things; used 1/4 cup ketchup and 1/4 cup of my favorite barbecue sauce and upped the brown sugar to 4 Tbs. I let the sauce cool, then let meat set in the sauce about 3 hours before baking. Very tender and tangy and easy to make.

Peach Whirligigs

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2003
I used 6 large peaches, doubled the dough to make 12 rolls and baked 45 minutes at 350 in a 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Just the right amount of everything and made 12 generous servings. Out of this world warm with ice cream. You'll love this.

Almond Chocolate Coconut Cups

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2004
This tastes very much like the candy bar it is named after. I needed to make another half batch of the chocolate topping. Made 36 in mini-muffin tins and an 8 x 8-inch dish that I cut into bars. Next time I will put a whole almond on top of each piece. Very rich dessery.

Green Tomato Raspberry Jam

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2005
Sorry, but I found this to be a poor substitute for raspberry jam. It had kind of a raspberry flavor, but just not like the real thing.

Rhubarb Upside Down Cake III

Reviewed: May 10, 2005
Excellent way to use rhubarb beside just pie. A little sweet for my taste, next time I'll use just 1/2 cup sugar. The upside down part is nice and gooey.

Pineapple Zucchini Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2003
These are great and very moist. I added a cup of chopped walnuts, zest of 1 orange and 2 tsp orange extract and they were even better. Looked like 2 cups of oil might be too much, but was just right.

Huckleberry Buckle II

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2005
Made a double batch using 1/2 fresh huckleberries and 1/2 fresh raspberries. Baked in a 9 x 13 x 2-inch glass pan for 55 minutes. Excellent taste and consistency. This would be good with most any berries.

Jimmy Carter Dessert

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2004
Nice, subtle peanut butter flavor, not overpowering. Instead of a soggy graham cracker crust, try using 1 cube softened margarine, 1 cup flour and 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts or peanuts. Mix ingredients with your hands until well mixed and press into bottom of the 9 x 13-inch pan. Bake at 375F. for about 12 minutes until light golden brown. Let crust cool before adding the next layer. This is truly delicious!!

Skillet Corn Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2004
I used an 11 ounce can of Mexi corn. Next time I will bake in a 8 x 12 pan as it was about twice as thick as I like. This is a real keeper, easy to make and the best ever with chili beans. YUMMY!!

Creamiest Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2005
Used basmati rice like some other reviewers suggested. Watch very closely as this cooks because it will boil over soon as you don't watch it. I use 1/2 to 1 tsp each cinnamon and nutmeg and mix in soon as the egg mixture is mixed with the rice and milk. It is helpful to mix some of the milk mixture with the egg mixture before adding to the saucepan. This is ok to eat soon as it cools down some. YUMMY!!

Banana Cake VIII

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2005
Very good and moist. Especially enjoyed the topping. Next time will add an 8 ounce can of drained, crushed pineapple, a cup of coconut and a cup of chopped walnuts just because I like these things.

Zucchini Pineapple Loaf

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2004
Made double batch using 1 cup banana as another reviewer suggested. Also added 1 cup flaked coconut. Made 4 middle size loaves and baked 45 minutes at 350F. Couldn't really taste the pineapple but the overall bread was delicious as was the glaze another reviewer suggested.

Glazed Corned Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2004
I may have been lucky and gotten an exceptional piece of corned beef, but this was by far the best I have ever eaten. Veggies needed more cooking time, needed about 1-1/2 hour. Eat with horseradish sauce or a good mustard. Great recipe!!

Extreme Banana Nut Bread 'EBNB'

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2005
I found this to be very good. I liked the texture and banana taste. Added 1 tsp baking powder and 2 tsp vanilla as was suggested by earlier reviewer. Made 4 medium size loaves, next time will just make 3, as this doesn't raise as much as some. Will definitely make again.

Brisket with BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2004
Used a 2 1/2# London broil, 1/2 recipe of rub (overnight) and full recipe of sauce, baked 2 1/4 hours at 300F. Meat was kind of dry, too lean I think, but the sauce is excellent and saved the day.

Grilled Asian Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2004
Would have given this a 5 star rating if directions had been clearer, be sure to use light sesame oil, not the dark. I made a double batch and used 2 tsp dark and 1 Tbs regular vegetable oil. Marinated boneless chicken breasts 12 hours, then grilled. Used simmered marinated for basting. Great tasting chicken.

Spicy Honey Mustard Pork Roast

Reviewed: May 15, 2004
Nice change of pace for pork roast, excellent gravy. Just didn't think it was quite a 5 star recipe, but I would make it again.
