Apple, Cranberry, and Pear Crisp

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2011
I added cinnamon and nutmeg to the topping and omitted the walnuts, and it turned out very good. Don't be afraid to leave out the nuts if you can't eat them.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2011
I also used buttermilk, per the suggestion of several other reviewers. This makes them rise beautifully. If they don't rise well for you, you have probably overmixed the batter. I also added 1/2 cup of applesauce, about a teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/2 of a whole nutmeg ground. Another trick I use for blueberry muffins is to take 1/2 cup of the blueberries and smash them with a fork into a rough puree. This spreads the blueberry flavor throughout the batter.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies I

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2011
I did tweak this with a little more flour and less sugar (1/2 C white, 3/4 C brown). I also used white whole wheat flour, which adds some fiber. I rolled the dough into balls, which made for very nice, puffy cookies. As others have noted, don't use a mixer after creaming the butter and sugar. Mix it in by hand and DON'T overmix.

Blueberry Coffee Cake III

Reviewed: May 29, 2011
Excellent coffee cake! I followed the other reviewers' suggestion and increased the milk to 3/4 cup. I also used white whole wheat flour (you read that right...it's whole wheat flour that is milled to bake just like white flour, but has all the nutrition of whole wheat). I also added 3 TB buttermilk powder and 1/2 tsp almond extract (should have used at least a full tsp, but didn't want to overwhelm the blueberry flavor). I have a small hand-cranked food processor that is perfect for making the streusel topping. I baked this in a glass 9X9 pan, and it turned out perfect in 45 minutes.

Chocolate Syrup

Reviewed: May 12, 2011
MUCH better than commercial chocolate syrup, and no artificial ingredients like HFCS. It's delicious for chocolate milk or on ice cream. I used half "extra dark" cocoa and half regular, and added a half teaspoon of instant espresso powder.

Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2011
These are awesome! I followed suggestions of others and doubled the amount of banana and peanut butter, added additional flour. I also added some salt (not called for in the recipe), about a teaspoon. This gave them more flavor. I also did NOT put the topping on them...just sprinkled a little white sugar on them for sparkle. These muffins are not sweet...and that's perfect!

Pittsburgh Chipped Ham Barbecues

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
Tastes just like the barbecue sandwiches I had when I was growing up in Pittsburgh! I was delighted to find authentic Isaly's chopped ham in the deli at our local store (in the eastern panhandle of WV, no less!). It just doesn't taste the same with anything else! But the "what to drink" suggestion...Riesling??? Really??? Come on, you can't drink anything but Iron City beer with this! I even put a little in the sauce!

Cranberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
I substituted lowfat yogurt for the sour cream and used half vegetable shortening and half butter to reduce the saturated fat. They turned out beautiful!I also reduced the oven temp to 375 and they baked in the same amount of time. For mini muffins, reduce the time to about 15-20 minutes.

Caramel Shortbread Squares

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2010
These are excellent and easy to make. I used an 8X8 pan, so it took about 10 extra minutes for the shortbread to bake. I also chilled the shortbread before putting on the caramel, and chilled the caramel layer thoroughly before putting on the chocolate. I had no trouble with the filling falling off the shortbread.

Applesauce

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2010
SKIP the sugar altogether, especially if you're using a sweeter apple. There's no need for any sugar at all. I also use apple cider instead of the water (and cut back on the liquid - 1 cup maximum). It's incredibly easy if you core and peel the apples and put them in a crockpot overnight on low. No stirring, just let it cook.

Cranberry Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2010
I made these as mini-muffins (made about 30) and they turned out great! I also used white whole wheat flour (King Arthur). It gives all the nutrition of whole wheat and bakes like white flour. I upped the spices a bit, since I like muffins spicy. I'll definitely make these again, perhaps adding some apple sauce to substitute for the oil.

Favorite Banana Blueberry Quick Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2010
Superb banana blueberry bread! I used white whole wheat flour for extra fiber, and added some cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and almond extract. I also reduced the sugar a little and replaced half the fat with applesauce. The loaves came out moist, with a nice crunchy crust. The flavor is wonderful!

Chicken Paprikash I

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
As several reviewers have said, this needs considerably more paprika than the recipe calls for. I used about 3 TB and it was delicious, but could still use a bit more.

Honey Multigrain Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2010
A very nice multigrain bread. I let it rise twice before the final rising in the pans. It has a very good flavor and nice texture. I also used some King Arthur white whole wheat flour in place of about half the white flour. Next time, I will try it with all white whole wheat in addition to the regular whole wheat and rye flours. Cooking the corn meal is definitely a plus. It reduces the graininess of the corn meal.

Angie's Perfect Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2010
Best dinner rolls I've ever had! I made them with white whole wheat flour and they came out light and fluffy and delicious. They omitted one step in the recipe: be sure to knead the dough for about 10 minutes before the first rising. And you really should prepare the baking dishes BEFORE you form the rolls! :-)

Corn Dogs

Reviewed: May 23, 2009
Yep, just like everyone has said: these are just like you get at the state fair! I had batter left over, so I thickened it with some more flour and corn meal and dropped it by spoonfuls into the hot oil. It made some yummy corn fritters!

Oatmeal Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2009
Excellent texture and wonderful flavor. I used King Arthur whole wheat white flour. It did take a bit longer to bake than the recipe said (about 50 minutes). Be sure to test it with a toothpick before removing it from the oven.
