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!

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.

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!

Peanut Butter Pie I

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
This is a wonderful peanut butter pie recipe. I added just a splash of milk to the peanut butter mixture, since it was very thick and might have been too much for my hand mixer to handle. I also used a store-bought crust, since I was pressed for time, but I'm anxious to try it with the homemade crust. It had a creamy texture (frozen or just chilled) and a robust peanut butter flavor (I used all natural unsweetened peanut butter). This one's a keeper!

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.

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!

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.

Pineapple Upside Down Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2013
Not bad for a "doctored up" cake mix recipe. I want to try this with a scratch cake recipe, however. A true pineapple upside cake uses a sponge cake, and this turns out light and fluffy. One tip: don't let the cakes sit on the waxed paper too long, or the bottoms will get moist and gummy. Once you know the topping won't drip any more, transfer them to a cooling rack to finish cooling.

Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2012
I used 5 cups of frozen blueberries and kept the sugar the same. It was delicious and set up very nicely (I can't stand a runny pie!). The only thing I'll do differently next time is to add a bit of lemon juice.

Pull-Apart Hot Cross Buns

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
Excellent, light and flavorful! The recipe actually made 18 LARGE buns for me. I didn't make this in a bread machine, but it worked perfectly well kneading the dough in the stand mixer. I gave them two risings in the bowl, and then shaped them put them in baking dish, and them in the refrigerator overnight. I took them out on Easter morning, gave them their final rise and baked them, so they were warm and delicious! I brushed them with an egg wash before baking so they got a nice shiny golden top. I did find that the glaze recipe made WAY too much. I only used about a third of the glaze (froze the rest for future use). The almond flavor in the glaze was a wonderful complement to the cardamom in the rolls. This is definitely a recipe that I will make again. Might not even wait for Easter. I think this recipe would also make excellent cinnamon rolls.

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.

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.

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.

Irish Cream Chocolate Cheesecake

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2014
I was able to cut the calories a bit by using light sour cream and 2 packages of neufchatel (reduced fat) cream cheese, along with a package of regular cream cheese. Served with a dollop of green tinted whipped cream for St. Patrick's Day! I prevented cracking by keeping the cake in the turned-off oven for about an hour after baking, then propping the door open for another hour. I might try a wee bit more Irish Cream the next time.

Cinnamon Pumpkin Waffles

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2013
Excellent pumpkin flavor! I used a combination of white whole wheat and regular whole wheat flour. I also added buttermilk powder. We'll definitely be having these again!

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2013
I used leftover rice from a Chinese restaurant. Since they use short grain rice, the pudding turned out very creamy. I used fat free half and half and 1% milk. I also added 1/2 tsp of freshly ground cardamom (in a double recipe). If you like cardamom, it makes it wonderful! Be careful adding the egg. I mixed it with the second batch of milk and poured it in VERY SLOWLY so it wouldn't turn to scrambled eggs.

Berry Oatmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2013
I used white whole wheat flour, vanilla sugar, and 1/2 cup applesauce (reduced the oil to 1/4 cup. I accidentally forgot to put in any egg at all. But these came out beautifully! Very light and flavorful. I'll make sure I forget the egg the next time I make these.
