Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
I tried the slices, liked it ok, but the 2nd time I made it I mashed it and it was better texture wise. Also, I used fat free banana cream yogurt the first time, and sour cream the second time. I think that the yogurt gave a better taste/texture/moistness.

Baked Macaroni and Cheese I

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
We can see how this could be considered a "bland" recipe, idea wise it was a great way to make mac & cheese and have it not be to "grainy" texture wise (using a roux) however, had we not used sharp cheddar, smoked cheddar, Chipotle cheddar, then used sharp and Parmesan on top, this could have been rather flavorless. We added more salt (season salt) as well. Great idea, just executed it differently.

Chicken Pot Pie VIII

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
I added garlic powder to the dough, but followed the recipe all the way with exception of that I didn't have 4 hours (much less overnight) for my dough, I put it in the freezer for an hour. Talk about sticky but it was my own darned fault (I didn't read the recipe all the way when I chose it) I also used 1 cup of butter instead of lard. SO, I had to form the dough to my pie pan and rolled the top part out between saran wrap, it worked for the most part. I had a little bit of filling left over but it helped ease my hubby's hunger till the pie was done. He LOVED it. I baked the pie for 30 minutes at 350 then another 30 minutes at 400. The bottom came out VERY nice!!! It was well done, not burnt nor undercooked. The top had a beautiful browness to it. I will be doing this recipe again but with enough time to let the dough sit in fridge for the right amount of time. I will also add garlic and thyme to the mixture for a little added flavor. I think that I will also make individual pies instead of one big one, too.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2008
I have never made an apple pie from scratch and this was amazing! I used the Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust (it made to much dough so I made/baked two apple turn overs with left over pie filling, WOW!). I made the pie a day before it was needed, it was a wee bit juicy but making it the day before allowed the juices to settle, and man was it worth it!!! I didn't do a lattice top, I just covered the entire thing putting for beautiful slits in the top and a design in the center. I added 8 caramels to the sauce and let them melt, a teaspoon of vanilla and some allspice, too. This is the best apple pie we have ever had!

Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2008
WOW!!!! Flaky, delicious and FLAVORFUL! One thing that I normally do not like about any pie is that the crust is flavorless and dense. This crust not only has flavor, but its nice and flaky. I added a bit of vanilla as well as allspice when mixed it all. I used the Apple Pie by Grandma Ople apple pie recipe, and since this dough made so much extra I created a couple apple turnovers with the remaining doah and pie mixture and glazed them with butter and sugar then baked. SO good!

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2008
Most excellent! I have never made shepherds pie so this was a first. I added corn to the potato mixture and to the beef/broth/onion/flour mixture I added an entire can of broth not just the 3/4 cup it called for as we like out pie a little less dry, it was not wet AT ALL, and absolutely delicious!I also added fresh garlic when I browned the onions. Next time we will add peas to the beef mixture.

Irish Cream Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2008
This was probably the best dessert I made out of all my baking for the holidays. I put in amaretto AND Baileys and used cream cheese flavored pudding. I caught people skipping plates and eating right off the plate! Delicious!

Lemon Wow Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2008
Where do I start??!!! This is one that I did not take a photo of as it did not come our pretty, but WOW did it taste WONDERFUL! I used lemon flavored pudding and made powdered sugar lemon and lemon zest glaze for the top that just put the cake over the edge from just yum to HOLY COW! To make the glaze: In a saucepan, combine butter, 1/4 cup water and 1 cup sugar, 1tblspn lemon juice and the same for lemon zest. Bring to a boil and continue boiling for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove the cake from the pan and knife while the cake is still a little warm insert the knife tip down and pour a little of the glaze into the slit, do this all over the cake then pour the remaining over the top and let cake continue to cool. It makes for a sticky desert, but is delicious to the last crumb!

Grandma's Gingersnap Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2008
I have never made Ginger cookies before so this was an interesting first for me. I would have to say that they were some of the best ginger cookies that I have ever eaten and I typically like Ginger Snaps for the crunchiness. I added about 1/8 more ginger than the recipe called for and a dash more vanilla. These were a big hit with family and friends!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2008
The cookies were great, just not what I (nor my husband) are used too. I decided to try a different recipe than the one that I usually use to make Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies. Since this one had such high scores I fugured, what the heck. Nothing wrong with them in general, they were tasty, just a a little more dry (crisp, I can't really say hard, but they were crunchy.) we prefer chewy and a little more dense. I used M&M's instead of chocolate chips. I doubled the batch and took a ton of them to work and they never lasted long!

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2007
This was a huge hit with my husband and friends. Hubby LOVES to cook cajun food but sticks to Gumbos and Etouffees. I thought that this would be fun and different, I added a little more of each of the spices then what was called for abd added file. It was terrific!

Crispy Herb Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2004
AWESOME! I used garlic herb flavored potato flakes and this was a huge hit with my husband. The chicken remained juicy but had a great coating, much healthier than fried!

Baked Ziti II

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2004
Awesome! I made my own sauce, lots of flavor there, so the adding a lot of cheese (lowfat and fat free) did not take from the flavor. Very Easy, failry quick, lots of leftovers, and my husband LOVES it! (I used fat free cottage cheese instead of ricotta)
