Basil Pesto Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2005
This was very good but I had to improvise a little with the pesto sauce when I discovered I didn't quite have enough fresh basil leaves. Think the recipe was close but not sure. Also, I discovered that the edges of the bread (I cut the slices about 1" thick) were starting to burn and the cheese browned and bubbling after just 4 mins. of broiling. I would watch them carefully and remove them probably between 3 - 4 mins. Overall very good and I will make again.

Colossal Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2005
These were good but a bit overwhelming. I used an ice cream scoop to make a smaller cookie and they were still huge. They were overly sweet and salty because of the peanut butter. If you like a cookie with a lot of flavor, then these are for you!

Mrs. Sigg's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2005
Very good and very easy to make. My son loves p.b. cookies and gave these a big thumb's up. I compared and these seem to be the exact recipe, only doubled, that came out of my old Better Homes and Garden Cookbook. I left out the salt as there is plenty in the p.b. already.

Fried Egg Sandwich

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2005
My husband has been making these sandwiches for years. Only difference is he uses English muffins, toasted, and usually puts on a sausage patty. To make sure the sausage doesn't shrink up too much, he presses them between the bottoms of two dessert plates. They flatten out nicely, then when they shrink up during cooking, they are just the right size. Skip on the salt, there is plenty in the cheese and sausage (if you use it) already. Also, we don't use the mayo or ketchup, the flavor is good enough on it's own. Perhaps we'll try it that way some time. Quick and easy.

Macadamia Nut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: May 31, 2005
Very good! I didn't have plain macadamia nuts, just dry honey roasted ones. I was afraid the cookies may come out too sweet but they were delicious. I used a mini ice cream scoop, which makes the job go faster, and made exactly 3 dozen cookies.

Oven Roasted Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: May 24, 2005
If you like ricotta cheese, then you will probably like this recipe a lot. I am not a fan of it myself and probably should have known better but it sounded so good. I loved the walnuts, added a nice texture, but the overall taste was a little bland for us. Also, I would recommend covering the chicken for at least part of the baking time, it seemed too dry.

Lemon Supreme Pie

Reviewed: May 24, 2005
I wish I could give this recipe more than 5 stars. If you like the taste of tangy lemon, then this recipe is for you. I used low-fat cream cheese and it still tasted wonderful. Next time, I think I would only put 2 or 3 drops of food coloring in, the pie had sort of an unnatural yellow color to it.

Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: May 17, 2005
Delicious! And so quick and easy to make. A nice blend of flavors although I may add just a pinch more cinnamon, I didn't think it was overly noticeable. I used a small ice cream scoop and got just shy of 3 dozen. I used butter in place of margarine and the cookies spread out just right, not too thin at all!

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: May 10, 2005
I guess we are some of the very few people who didn't care for this recipe. I found the flavors to be really overwhelming, even though I cut back some on the bacon and green onions. Also, even taking others' recommendations to cut back a little on the sour cream and milk, we found them to be too runny. I think I will continue to just make my basic twice baked potatoes recipe that I've had for years. Sorry.

Sheryl's Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: May 4, 2005
I wanted to write a review after reading the previous reviewer's rating. I have been making a similar recipe to this for years (you can use whatever seasonings you like) and I leave the skin on. If you are having trouble making the cuts (and it is hard to do), simply hold a wooden spoon handle on the cutting board, next to the potato. (The spoon handle should be on the cutting board on the side closest to you, with the potato laying lengthwise on the other side of the spoon handle, touching it). As you slice through with your knife, the wooden spoon handle will keep you from cutting too deeply and you will get nice, even cuts. The potato fans out a little with some help, but not a lot. Good luck.

Pork Tenderloin with Tomato and Pepper Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2005
This is really good but is it ever spicy! That was even with adding more tomatoes and sauce. One problem I had was the garlic burned really fast and although it didn't affect the overall taste, the whole dish had a really burned smell to it. Next time, I would just add the garlic in with the sauce. I sauteed the meat and garlic then put it all in a slow cooker. I then put the can of domatoes with green chilies in the pan, along with another can of diced tomatoes seasoned with oregano and basil, an 8 oz. can of tomato sauce, and a little water. I added all the other ingredients, except the green bell pepper, because I didn't have any. Cooked it on low for 10 mins., then added it all to the slow cooker. I slow cooked it on low for about 6 hrs. and served it over angel hair pasta.

Ground Beef Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2005
We thought this was just o.k. We didn't care for the green beans and the potatoes were too watery, even though I used 3 potatoes. I would omit the water, use 3 or 4 potatoes, and just use a little milk while beating them.

Springtime Quiche

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2005
This was a good way to use up a lot of asparagus. The only changes I made was to use "no salt added" swiss and I used 4 eggs since I didn't have any egg substitute.

My Crab Cakes

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2005
These were very good but I had to make a few changes. I took others recommendations and increased the crab meat to two cans, cut the crackers in 1/2 to 4 oz. and increased the eggs to 2. I didn't have any green onions so just used regular sweet white onions. Good, but I'm sure the green onions are better. I also didn't have any butter crackers on hand so just used saltines. I was also out of cayenne pepper and just used cajun seasoning. I did not add any salt, there is enough in the other ingredients. These came out well, but I want to try them with the green onions and butter crackers, they will probably be even better. Thanks for a terrific recipe!

Rigatoni with Eggplant, Mushrooms and Goat Cheese

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2005
I was looking for a way to use up some goat cheese and came across this recipe. We liked it a lot but it definitely has a zing to it between the goat cheese and the kalamata olives. I think next time I may cut back a little on the goat cheese so there is a stronger tomato taste. I did not add the salt because there is plenty in the canned tomato, chicken broth, and goat cheese.

Sweet Potato Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2005
My sister-in-law gave me this same recipe and it is fantastic. The only difference is after the punching down and resting step, I then divide the dough into 3 equal size balls. Roll these balls out into a fairly thin circular shape, use a pizza cutter and cut in 12 equal wedges. Roll the wedges up from the longer side down to the point, let them double in size, about 40 mins., and then bake as directed. Because they make so many, I put them in smaller freezer bags after I've baked them. When I want to use them, simply let them defrost for approximately an hour, place on a lightly greased cookie sheet and bake for about 10 mins. at 300º.

Chocolate Malt Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2005
I used malt powder bought in a health food store since it can't be found easily in the regular grocery stores. The bars tasted o.k., kind of like brownies, but we did not like the frosting at all and decided to leave it off. We all agreed it had a heavy molasses flavor. Maybe that wouldn't happen with regular malt bought in the grocery store.

Stuffed Green Peppers I

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2005
Delicious! My husband and I enjoyed it very much. Of course, the kids won't give it a fair shake, same as I wouldn't have eaten this as a kid. Have some extra ground beef on hand to make them hamburgers. I left out the salt as there is plenty in many of the ingredients already.

Farmer's Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2005
This is very good and very similar to another recipe I have that uses hash brown patties, ham, eggs, jalapeno peppers, and shredded cheddar cheese. I increased the eggs to 6 and only used a 5 oz. can of evaporated milk and the casserole was still quite watery. I baked it for another 15 mins., still watery, so I had to finish it up for about 4 mins. in the microwave. I would say just eliminate the evaporated milk altogether. My other recipe does not use it and it comes out fine. Still a good recipe, however. Thanks, Lorrie!

Oatmeal Pudding Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2005
I thought these were very good but just a little dry and needed a little more flavor. Next time, I will cut back a little on the oats and definitely add some vanilla. Some spices would be a nice addition. The pudding is definitely a nice change.
