Curried Quinoa

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2013
My family hasn't fully embraced the "Indian" flavors, but this hit the spot. My 5 year old wolfed it down, pausing only to sip her milk. I added a can of chick peas, and we had some leftover peas that made their way into the mix. It wasn't until after we had supper that I forgot that I didn't add salt and pepper. The left overs were fantastic I've eaten them warm and cold for lunch. Low fat, high protein, high fiber, all in all a fantastic dish. It's on the make again list!

Sour Cream Sugar Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
This recipe was THE hit this Christmas season. I made two batches one as posted and the other with a 1/4 tsp of almond extract. I preferred the almond version, but both were absolutely fantastic. We were looking for a puffy cookie that held together well when frosting, and this is THE recipe. Unlike a previous review, refrigerating the dough overnight did not have a negative impact on it's workability or baking, but when the dough was completely chilled, it did work better to let it sit on the counter 5-10 minutes before rolling. Speaking of rolling, this is the first time I've used parchment paper. Using a quarter of the dough, estimate the size of parchment paper so when it was folded over, the dough can be rolled to the 1/4" thickness and still have the parchment paper cover the entire dough surface (top and bottom). The trick I learned was after rolling, pull the top layer of paper up and away from the dough, then flip the dough and paper over so the bottom is now on top. Pull this layer of paper away from the dough. This helps the cookies to EASILY release from the paper with out adding the extra flour (never been a fan of this). Oh yeah, way less messy with baking with kids! These cookies are saved for ever!!!!!

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2010
These pancakes are wonderful! I like to try a recipe as printed first. This time I doubled the recipe to use the full can of pumpkin...and unlike some recipes this made a HUGE amount. The really cool thing is that the left-overs keep wonderfully. Toss them into the toaster on a darker setting, and they are as good as the first time around. My 2YO says "I love pumpkin pancakes, Daddy!" and anything that gets a stamp of approval from a 2YO, well that says something. I'm anxious to try this again with some of the mods...but over all fantastic recipe, will definitely make again. I love the flavors that go with pumpkin and this will be a family favorite for a LONG time! Enjoy!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2010
Love the recipe as listed and have on occasion used some of the suggestions...either way this is a fantastic recipe. More than once I've browned the hamburger and tossed it into a crock pot when serving family gatherings or on those "grazing" occasions like tail gating or Christmas.

Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2005
Very good...rather than use regular salt and pepper, I like to use a pepper spice blend adds a bit of kick. Works well for left-overs.

All-Day Apple Butter

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2003
We used Braeburn apples, with 1/2 the sugar and it turned out PERFECT! Jonathan’s with 1/2 sugar have a slight tartness...experiment. Make this with the kids, they will have fun, my daughter would give it 10 stars. 4H project in the making. We used the Cuiseart hand blender to puree the apples in the crock pot, and then left the lid off to thicken.
