Biscotti Toscani

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2003
This recipe is out of this world. I even goofed up by not reading the directions all the way through and stirred the minature chocolate chips into the dough. The orange zest is essential. These get better tasting every day stored in a glass jar. I will be making this recipe over and over.

Creamed Beef

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2003
This is a quick easy meal when you are busy. For those of you who found it to be bland try using cream of celery or cream of mushroom soup diluted with a little milk. My family likes it with one of the cream soups. Omit the onion if you wish. It's something like the army s.o.s.

Chocolate Zucchini Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2004
This was a tasteless cookie for us. I made it for a group of church children and rescued these cookies by adding chocolate frosting. I even added the extra shortening and egg and it was not moist. Will not try this recipe again.

Apple Oatmeal Bar Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2004
These were dry and tasteless cookies. Even a white frosting could not save them. The concept sounded good though.

Fairy Food

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2005
I have this same recipe and it calls for only 1 tbsp. baking soda. This always tastes great. If you feel your candy raised too high you can cut across the height. Never try on a damp/rainy day and line pan with non-stick foil

Chocolate Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2005
Served this at a church brunch. It was very well received. My first taste of chocolate banana bread and my husband and I were not disappointed. Made 2 loaves. They sank a little right in the middle, not sure why. That why the 4 star. This recipe is a keeper.

Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

Reviewed: May 13, 2005
Have been making hamburger steaks for over 50 years, but never used egg and bread crumbs or wine. Knew it would taste just like meatloaf. Have varied between onion and mushroom gravy served with boiled Yukon gold potatoes with butter. One of our favorite easy suppers.

Divinity

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2005
Followed recipe exactly and it was the smoothest ever. Even made it on a humid day and it turned out perfectly. Cannot say the same for my attempt at sponge candy. Great recipe!!

Meaty Thick Man Chili

Reviewed: May 19, 2006
This is a good recipe for those of us who like thick chili. My husband is not fond of big chunks of tomato. I'm confused as to why Andy used tomato paste. No wonder his chili was dry. There's a big difference between paste and sauce.

Sour Cream Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2006
My husband and I found these chops to be really tasty and tender. I followed the recipe except used plain yogurt as my spouse does not like sour cream. It was difficult to blend it into the gravy so I ended up making regular gravy, and it was still delicious next time I will add some of the gravy to the flour mixture to thin it down. I added paprika to the seasonings sprinkled on the chops and added the same to the flour for dredging. This will be our favorite pork chop recipe.

Elegant Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2009
Made this for dinner one night. Husband and I both enjoyed it. I made 1/3 recipe as there is just the two of us. I am planning on making this for Easter dinner with pork tenderloins. It will be something different for the family. We didn't feel the bacon added anything to the taste so will probably omit it next time. It does make an attractive casserole.

Tomato Asparagus Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2009
I followed this recipe exactly as written and used balsamic vinaigrette from this site as suggested by another reviewer. Loved the asparagus and tomatoes but feel there is a better dressing out there somewhere. If I try this again it will be with a different dressing.

Homemade Cream Filled Individual Sponge Cakes

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2009
How is it that yellow cake mix is listed as sponge cake?? I made a Betty Crocker sponge cake and used a cream filling consisting of 1/4 C of butter, 1/4 C shortening, 2 C confectioners' sugar, 3 TBSP milk, pinch of salt and 1 tsp vanilla. Try it! It's better than the brand name. Took it to a church bake sale and they sold like hot cakes.

Pen's Deviled Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
One tip for the viewers. If you boil the eggs for the whole fifteen minutes, each yolk will have an unappetizing green coating. Taking off the heat as soon as the water comes to a boil and letting stand for 15 min. will give you beautiful yellow yolks

Cream Cheese Squares

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
I made these today to take to a church birthday party. I had to bake it longer than the recipe says and it still has gooey spots in it. Definitely cut down on the butter or leave it off altogether. I will have to purchase another desert tomorrow before the party. Will not use this recipe again.

Rhubarb Berry Jam

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
As written this is a terrific jam. I have been making it for years and everyone I have shared it with loved it and asked for the recipe. Don't understand why it would be called three berry jam when only adding flavored jello, but to each his own. It has always been called rhubarb/blueberry jam as far back as I know. Enjoy!! No need to can, keeps in the refrig. indefinitely.

Sausage, Peppers, Onions, and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2010
Took this dish to a party over the weekend. Everyone raved about it. Had many requests for the recipe. Didn't have the white wine but those who tasted it, said didn't need it. I don't usually take a new recipe to a party, but in this case it was a winner.

Butterscotch Haystacks

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
I like these with melted butterscotch chips, 1 heaping tablespoon of peanut butter, 1 1/2 cups shoestring potatoes and 1 cup peanuts. Not too fond of the chow mein noodles. But everyone has different tastes.
