Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
Very Good! I added the following to the flour mixture: 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. nutmeg, 1/2 tsp. baking powder. I also added 1 tsp. of vanilla to the banana mixture. And finally, I added the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients instead of the other way around as the recipe states. After baking for 40 minutes I covered it lightly with foil. and baked for 20 more minutes. It was really yummy - next time I will add chocolate chips!

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
We loved this soup! I followed the recipe with these exceptions: instead of using water, I just added more chicken broth. So I used 1 carton of broth (32 oz.) instead of 1 can of broth and 2 cups of water. Also, I only had a 28 oz. can of whole peeled tomatoes, so I just threw in the whole thing. AND I had accidentally opened a can of crushed tomatoes at first, so I also threw in about half of that (14 oz.). (I thought it was a LITTLE too thin before the crushed tomatoes and I think they did the trick.) Also added 2 cans of black beans. I did make the corn tortilla strips - YUM! Worth the trouble, IMO. And really, they were so easy to make! Here's the secret - use a pizza cutter to cut the strips - I cut the tortilla in half first, and then just zipped through cutting the strips - the pizza cutter made it EASY, EASY, EASY!!! (Also, I lightly salted the strips before baking with Kosher salt.) I did cook brown rice as some suggested and added a scoop of cooked rice to each bowl, pouring the soup over the rice. Finally, I served it with the following toppings: sour cream, sliced avocado, shredded cheese, and of course the tortilla strips. I will definately make this again!

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2006
I don't even LIKE cheesecake and this is great! I made this first for my husband's birthday - it was a huge hit. I just made it again yesterday and, again, everyone loved it. Three things, in particular, that I read in the reviews by others that I think were very helpful: 1) Use a water bath. 2) Instead of wrapping the pan with foil for the water bath, put it in an oven bag. What a great idea! I had absolutely NO problems with the water from the bath seeping into the pan. 3) I used the following recipe for the crust from an earlier review, and it has a really wonderful flavor: 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs, 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts, 1/4 cup melted butter, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg. I baked the crust first in the oven for 8 minutes, just to prevent it from getting soggy. Also, I let the ingredients get to room temperature first. This isn't difficult to make, just time consuming (with leaving it in the oven for 6 hours after baking, etc.) But both of my cakes turned out perfectly, with no cracks.

Cranberry Hootycreeks

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2005
These cookies are excellent...and a great gift to give as well! I did the following when making the "cookies in a jar": used a quart-sized mason jar, did not pack ingredients as I was filling the jar, but I did pack some of the ingredients when MEASURING (brown sugar, cranberries, flour), and I also layered the ingredients this way: white sugar, brown sugar, 1/2 c. flour, baking soda & salt, nuts (I used walnuts), cranberries, white choc. chips, oats, and 5/8 c. flour. Towards the top I had to pack the ingredients slightly to fit everything in the jar, but just a little. I also just called the cookies "Cranberry Cookies". :)

Jewish Apple Cake II

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2005
This recipe is wonderful, however I did make a some changes based on reading others' reviews: 2 cups of sugar instead of 2 1/2, I used 5 apples instead of 3 (Granny Smith), I added 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, I used apple sauce instead of vegetable oil (I found Granny Smith apple sauce, so I used that), I kept the dry ingredients separate, and then added them to the wet ingredients, and finally I dusted with confectioners' sugar after the cake cooled. Also, I cut the apples first, and put them in a bowl of water with a few drops of lemon juice to keep them from turning brown while I'm making the batter.

Hoagie Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2004
This is a big hit whenever I make it! (I cut the amount of mayo in half though, because it was too much for me. I'll use mayo when called for in recipes, but I don't like too much in/on anything. Half was just fine for me.)

Best Lemonade Ever

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2004
Everyone at my party loved it! I made the "concentrate" ahead of time (the 1 c. water and sugar mixture combined with the lemon juice) and put it in the freezer. The day before I needed it I took it out of the freezer and put it in the refrig. The day of the party, all I had to do was mix the concentrate with the remaining 7 c. of water.
