Potato Waffles

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
When my husband saw me fire up the waffle maker, he had his mouth set for butter and maple syrup, so these waffles took him by surprise! I had sour cream and chive instant mashed potatoes in my pantry. I mixed those up according to package directions and then just added the flour and eggs in this recipe. The waffles couldn't have been simpler and were very tasty served topped with shredded Cheddar, plain yogurt, and a sprinkling of chopped green onions. I will definitely make these again.

Watermelon and Strawberry Lemonade

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2011
I had a tasteless watermelon that wasn't worth eating, but I hated to just throw it away. This recipe was the answer to my problem. I followed other reviewers' suggestions to cut the sugar in half and replace half the lemon juice with lime juice. I expected the recipe to turn out slushy, but it was liquidy without straining. I'm sure this refreshing drink will be even better when made with a good watermelon!

Oven Roasted Hominy

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2010
I love corn nuts and was very interested in trying this recipe. Unfortunately, it did not turn out AT ALL. A number of the kernels popped during baking and ended up laying all over my oven floor. The seasonings turned into a charred black coating. That said, I still gave this recipe two stars instead of a flat zero. I'm hoping the main problem was the high oven temperature. When I roast pumpkin seeds, I use a 250 degree oven. I think I'm going to try the hominy on that temperature and see if I get better results. If so, I'll post again and let you know!

Cranberry Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2005
I thought these were too sweet, but my husband said they were "awesome" and my friends also seemed to like them. I think I will cut the butter and brown sugar to 1/2 cup each if I make them again.

Banana Upside-Down Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2002
Dana's "easy and yummy" description is right on the mark. I baked my cake in a 9x13" pan and it turned out great. My husband ate three pieces of this the night I served it to his parents. I took the leftovers to the office the next day and received many compliments and two recipe requests.

Triple the Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2002
I hate to cast a negative vote among all the five-star ratings, but I thought the crystallized ginger in this recipe was too much! I like ginger, but biting into a small chunk of crystallized ginger gives the kind of hot sensation you get from eating Thai food--not exactly what I'm looking for in a cookie. Homemade treats usually disappear quickly at my office, but I couldn't find any takers for these overwhelming cookies. If I were to make these again, I'd definitely omit the crystallized ginger.

Orange-Drizzled Pumpkin Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2002
These have a nice, moist brownie texture. However, I think they'd be better with an extra teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice. Also, I used orange juice concentrate instead of orange juice in the glaze to make the orange flavor more perceptible.

Olympic Gold Medal Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2002
I always like to have some kind of theme food when watching the Olympics. I made these cookies for the opening ceremonies of the Salt Lake Winter Games. The golden raisins and walnuts make them a nice variation of traditional oatmeal raisin cookies. I used a large Pampered Chef cookie scoop to drop my dough in golf ball-sized portions. I was pleased to get twice the expected yield--three dozen cookies, each four inches in diameter. Thirteen minutes of baking time was enough to produce soft, chewy cookies.
