Maple Syrup Casserole Made in Heaven

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2008
Definitely a keeper for our family. I've made this recipe twice - the first time I followed the recipe precisely, the second time I added an extra 1/2 cup of syrup and served with syrup on the side. We enjoyed the second time much, much more. Also, the first time we used maple syrup as called for in the recipe - so expensive and not worth it. Regular breakfast syrup tastes significantly better and costs a lot less.

Artichoke & Spinach Dip Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2008
A delicious dip that I will definitely make again. It was a bit thicker, less creamy than "restaurant-style" dips. The combination of ingredients was yummy. We served this dip with tortilla chips.

Herb Roasted Pork

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2008
Wonderful roasted pork recipe! I did use 3 1/2 lbs rather than 5 lbs without modifying the recipe (except to bake it for only about 1 1/2 hours), and the rub and glaze were just enough to go around. We will definitely make this recipe again and again!

Southwestern Corn and Walnut Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2008
Not too spicy, just right. Might add more walnuts next time, the flavor wasn't quite prominent enough for me. And I've tried frozen corn but will probably go with the canned corn next time as recommended. Lots of people ask me for this recipe at parties. Thanks for such a yummy recipe!!

Banana Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2008
This recipe tasted great when first prepared. However, it did not store well at all, not even overnight -- the rice hardened and the banana browned (as did the rest of the pudding). If anyone knows of some tricks to prevent these two issues, then you've got yourself a great pudding. Otherwise, enjoy as soon as you prepare it, or don't waste your time.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2007
An icing that leaves your cookies exceptionally shiny and boldly colored. However, the taste left a lot to be desired, very bland. And I was looking for a thick glaze to pour over my cookies. I needed to add a lot more corn syrup to make this pourable (or even paintable) and when the icing dried it wasn't thick at all - I could still see the cookie through the icing. I'll keep looking. Just depends on what you're looking for.

Banana Cake VI

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2007
Very dense, has a "fancy" taste to it. If you like banana cake, this is the recipe for you! I have now made this cake several times and have found the following tips helpful: add about 1/8 to 1/4 cup more flour to make the cake less dense (more like cake than banana bread); make sure your bananas are not overripe (bananas just starting to get brown spots are perfect); and if you do not have buttermilk on hand and decide to "make your own," mix 1 Tbsp vinegar (rather than additional lemon juice) with whole milk (have tried skim and it didn't work quite the same, though still okay). Very moist and delicious cake!

Yellow Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2007
The first time we made this it was phenomenal. Since then, I can't seem to replicate the same yumminess. The recipe makes a lot which is great. I'll keep trying...we don't like yellow squash by itself, so this is a nice way to add squash into our diet.

Pecan Pie III

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2007
I will try this pie again before looking for a better recipe. Next time, I will try the following modifications as recommended by others: substitute brown sugar for the white, add 1/4 cup melted butter, add 1 Tbsp flour. Also, be sure the pecans are chopped well.

Alla Checca

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2007
We cooked the sauce and it was great. Next time we will leave it uncooked, when we have time to let the sauce sit.

French Green Bean Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2007
Although we didn't completely enjoy this recipe, the family believes the recipe has lots of potential and will definitely make it again. Next time, to start, I will add lots more green beans OR reduce the amount of stuffing mix. I will also NOT saute the green beans before baking - they turned out shriveled, dry, and limp and the 40 minute cook time should be sufficient (especially for French cut beans).

Glazed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2007
Very good and easy to make. Not a recipe to die for but definitely a reliable, basic recipe (and still yummy) that everyone should have in their repertoire.

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2007
Delicious! Want to play around with some to make it a little more dense, less crumbly, and maybe a little more moist, but will definitely make again.

Mom's Easy Bake Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2007
This is a great recipe! Very easy, yummy, and lower sodium content than many other recipes on this site for baked beans (because it doesn't use a collection of canned products to create the finished product). I only give 4 stars because frankly we're talking about baked beans here. =)

Macaroni and Cheese V

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2007
There are lots of mac & cheese recipes on this site. I chose this one because of its lower sodium content, comparatively, because it's easy to make, and it's not "overdone" with extra ingredients (like bacon, etc). My toddler loves this recipe! So do we!

Holiday Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2007
We love this recipe! After perusing many of the reviews, I made some modifications to increase the recipe's "healthy factor." Here is my ingredient list: 2c white flour, 2c whole wheat flour, 2c sugar, 2 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp allspice, 2 tsp salt, 1 tsp nutmeg, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ground cloves, 1/4c canola oil, 3/4c unsweetened applesauce, 3/4c water, 4 eggs, 15 oz can pumpkin puree. Combine the dry ingredients, blend in the wet ingredients, then bake. Yummy and I feel good about giving it to my toddler.
