Mock Lobster

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2011
With Lobster at $20/lb and split chicken breast at $.88/lb you can bet your bottom dollar that this tastes enough like lobster to make it worth having again and again. We LOVED this recipe. marinate the chicken for at least 3 hours, slow cook over the coals until just barely done, dip in melted butter and savor the flavor. I have very few "go-to" recipes, but this is one that I will always make :)

Dee's Health Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
Very tender and yummy for a WW bread. Here are the changes I made to the recipe. I proofed the yeast (used equal amount of instant)then added the other wet ingredients. I used VOCO instead of vegetable oil, cider vinegar instead of lemon juice and blackstrap molasses instead of regular. Added the dry ingredients (minus the last 2 cups of flour) plus 1/2C of vital Wheat gluten and 2 heaping Tbs of dough enhancer. I used all WW flour except the last 1-2 cups of bread flour that I added until the dough held together well. I will certainly be making this again and again. Thanks!!

Spicy Chicken and Cilantro Wontons

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2008
I am making these right now and I can tell that they are going to be great. Here is my version. 15 boneless chicken thighs, 3 Costco packs 1 stalk lemongrass, 1 bulb garlic, 1 bunch cilantro, 2 bunches spring onion, everything else the same (proportionally). I put everything through my KitchenAid food grinder attachment and mixed well. Some of these will be fries as wontons, the others will have to go into eggroll wrappers.

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2007
We have meade this 2 times. ONce the way the recipe is written and the second time with the modifications and some chocolate chips on top. We like the second way better. 4 stars for flavor, I like it creamier, but 5 stars for *easy to make*.

Mrs. Sigg's Fresh Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
My husband is a Pumpkin pie fanatic and wanted me to once again make fresh pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving. I baked a cushaw squash, pureed it in the Cuisinart then let it strain overnight in a tea towel. The next morning I quadrupled the recipe to make 5 pies (assorted sizes). Instead of using the premixed spice, I ground my own fresh spices. I also used half brown and half white sugar. Overall we were pleased with the texture and consistency of this pie and will continue to use this recipe. Thanks for sharing.

Lemon Coconut Squares

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2007
Absolutely loved these. My 10yo son made them all by himself and they were perfect. We used lime juice in place of lemon because that is what we had and we used a full cup of coconut on top because we like it so much. YUMMY and Easy

Best Toffee Ever - Super Easy

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2006
WOW! Fantastic toffee recipe. I followed the advice from another toffee recipe and cooked this in my cast iron skillet while stirring constantly until the desired color was achieved. I did not even pull out the candy thermometer and it turned out perfectly. Will certainly make this again and again. Thanks:)

Apple Dumplings II

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2006
These are the best apple dumplings. We tripled the dough and halved our 6 large Granny Smith apples for 12 dumplings and almost ran short on the dough. Also doubled the sauce and used half brown half white sugar. Next time I will try adding chopped nuts and raisins to the apples. Worth all the time and effort.

Sausage Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2006
We have made this and we love it in our home. It is easy to modify with whatever dried fruit or nuts you may have on hand. We have not yet tried the sausage ice cream though (wink) Be brave, be bold!

White Chocolate, Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2006
Perfectly yummy. I used a combo of butter and virgin organic coconut oil, carob powder instead of cocoa, added a generous teaspoon of sea salt and some vanilla. Baked a full 10 min and got a perfect cookie. Would be great with any kind of chip or nut I think.

Jo's Rosemary Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2006
Yummy bread. This worked really well in my bread machine and tasted great with some "Italian butter" style olive oil. This is a keeper for us! Thanks

Fried Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2006
Great recipe with some modifications. I peeled and sliced my potatoes before boiling for 5-6 min. While they were draining I melted 1 stick butter in the pan and added 1/2 onion sliced thinly, then added a dash of cinnamon and only 1 cup loosely packed brown sugar. After a few minutes I tossed in the potatoes and let them cook another 5-10 min. Everyone liked them!

Okra and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2006
I fixed this dish this evening with a few modifications and everyone but the babies cleaned his plate. I used fresh okra, doubled the tomato, added some leftover polish sausage and a bit of crushed pepper. We served it over flavored white rice and ate every last bite.

Chocolate Cornstarch Pudding

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2006
Some friends and I take turns picking up milk from a local dairy. When I was gathering my jars today I found I had 3/4g of milk to use before my friends came by to pick up my jugs. I qudrupled this recipe for our family and found the results to be most satisfying. Velvety smooth and choco-riffic!

Basic Crepes

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2006
I always use this recipe for crepes and the only thing I find I need to change is to add more liquid to thin the batter (I use real sea salt and real organic butter which really do give this a great flavor). Also, I double the recipe adding the wet ingredients first to my blender, then adding the dry. Used the Pumkin spice ricotta creme recipe (with sugar) as a filling for breakfast crepes for the kids. Always a hit. I guess I love it because it is so easy to make.

Pumpkin Spice Ricotta Creme

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2006
I doubled the recipe and added about 1/3c sugar instead of sugar substitute and used it as a filling with the basic crepes recipe. We all loved it and plan to keep it in regullar rotation for breakfast. Thanks!

Bird Seed Squares

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2006
These were a great treat to throw together for a family treat reminding me of the calssic chocolate no-bake cookies that my grandmother made. OOPs, I left out the peanut butter. We'll just mix that in now. Uh oh, too bad I forgot to add the crispies. No problem, just toss them in. Oops, I forgot the oatmeal too! Ah, it's only been a few minutes, stir those in too. After finally getting ALL the ingredients mixed in I pressed them into the pan (again) and let them set up. They ended up being a bit crumbly, though next time they will be perfect. Also I substituted flax seed for the sunflower seed.

Happy Mountain

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2006
I have made this recipe (also known as Snow on the Mountain) many times for group gatherings and it has always been a hit. Here are some things I do or have done differently. Use leftover turkey or a whole chicken cut up, boiled and meat removed. Use the broth to make a homemade gravy rather than use canned soup. And for other toppings we use diced celery, slivered almonds, raisins, frozen peas and peanuts. Having a variety of toppings available is good for group gatherings, but the ones listed in the recipe are a must for anytime. We love it and make this at least 2-3 times a year. YUM! Give it a try.
