Awesome Buttertarts

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2011
Finally I found a recipe that is similar to my mom's and not icky corn syrup in the ingredients. A trick I learned over the years is not to mix the raisins & walnuts into the filling but to put a rounded tsp of raisins and 1/2 tsp of chopped walnuts directly into the tart shells. Then I pour in the filling. That way each tart has the same amount of fruit/nuts.

Pumpkin Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2011
This is pretty tastey. I am a huge fan of rice pudding and since I have an abundance of pumpkin in my freezer I was searching for a use for it. Followed the recipe except used a heaping tsp of pumpkin spice instead of the individual spices. Also increased the sugar to 1/2c. After simmering in the milk for 20mins it was still really soupy so I decided to just mix in the puree and not layer. Cooked for 60 mins, stirring every 20mins and it came out beautiful.

Monkey Bread II

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
OMG perfection. I did do one change. Instead of dipping the balls of dough into the butter and rolling in sugar I melted the one cup of margarine, 1 cup br. sugar and 1 tsp of cinnamon in a saucepan over medium heat until all the sugar was dissolved. I pour approx 1/3 c into the bottom of my greased bundt pan, added a layer of balls, poured another 1/3 c of sauce, rest of balls, and poured the remaining sauce over everything making sure the top layer of dough balls were coated. covered with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled. after baking for 25 mins and resting for 5, inverted onto plate. used a spatula to make sure every square inch of the bread has sauce on it. This way was so much easier and less messy!!

Corn Flake Cookies II

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
These are great. I used a cup of solid magarine instead of the half and half. Used 1 tsp of Maple flavoring instead of vanilla and baked @ 350F for 14 mins on my stoneware bar pans. They came out perfect, crispy and chewy and oh so yummy. Definitely a keeper

Honey Of An Oatmeal Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2011
After reading some of the reviews, I decided to make but with a few tweaks. I doubled the recipe as my machine makes 2lb loaves. Used 1 1/2 cups water, 1/2 cup milk, 1/4 c honey, 1 tsp salt (found it strange recipe didn't call for this), 1/2 of rolled oats, 1/2 rolled oats ground to powder, 4 1/4 c AP flour and 1 tsp yeast. Taste is good, soft texture but it is a very dense loaf. Will most like make again, tweeking the recipe

Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2011
These are not bad. I would cut back on the cinnamon next time. I think the key to these little bad boys are almost under cooking them. I stuck to 8 mins exactly and let them set up for a couple of mins on the cookie sheet before removing them to rack. I got 3 doz plus 9 out of my batch and I added 1/4 cup chopped walnuts

Classic Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2011
These are really good. I just made a couple of changes though. I cut out the oil and added 1/3 c of unsweetened applesauce, 1/2 c packed light brown sugar and cut the salt down to 1/4 tsp. They are light, fluffy and not overly sweet. I also doubled the recipe and actually got 24 med muffins and 24 med muffin tops

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies III

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
These are quite good and yes very cake/muffin like. I used 1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice but should have used maybe a in 1/2 tsp more. I used a combo of 1/2 c semi-sweet and 1/2 c white chocolate chips and baked in mini muffin top pan for approx 8 mins. Will make again with a bit of tweeking in the flavor. Would be nice topped with a cream cheese icing drizzle

Ginger Pork

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
The hubby ate it but ask me to never make it again because there was absolutely no flavor and sauce. For me I will try it again as it has potential, but will definitely have to tweak it ALOT. Sauce needs to be doubled if not tripled, and even though I used real grated ginger, 2Tbsp, there just wasn't enough ginger flavor.

Chow Mein Noodle Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2010
Ok, these taste not too bad, but the pb/noodle filling is less than desirable. The marshmallow, peanut butter, brown sugar turned into a big blob so I had to add about 1/4 cup butter to smooth it out. Adding the chow mein to this turned it into a complete mess. I must have over cooked it cause now its rock hard and not very pleasant to eat. The crust w/chocolate on the other hand turned out great. Will never be making this again :(

Taco Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2010
I have made this recipe a few times. Overall it is only a three but with a few of my own changes, I have made it a 5 (IMO). I used VE Pueblo Bean Dip mix instead of the pkg of taco seasoning, used tri-color spiral pasta, left out the lettuce, used Kraft Mexican Cheddar, added celery & cucumber (for the kids), used green onion or red (less harsh tasting than a yellow onion), used French Dressing. Served with Doritos Zesty Nacho, sour cream and Salsa on the side. It gets devoured and is even better the next day

Cilantro Tabouli

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2010
Okay since I don't know what authentic Tabouli tastes like, I will give this a 4 out of 5. Maybe my lemons were too big but wowser, it was very lemony. I also used cracked wheat and flat leaf parsley because both bulgar & fresh cilantro are difficult to find in my stores. Will make this again, but cut back on the lemon juice. The recipe also should have stated that the wheat should be cooled before adding the rest of ingredients. I had to put the complete salad in the freezer just to get it cool enough for dinner. Definitely best made early in the day.

Go Anywhere Rhubarb Squares

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2010
These are very similar to a recipe my mom makes all the time. I tweaked it a bit by adding a 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and 1/4 tsp nutmeg to the custard. I also reserved 1/2 cup of the crumbs and sprinkled them over the filling. Turned out great.

Banana Wheat Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2010
Oh so ymmy. I made the recipe as stated, but on suggestion added 1 tsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp gingerbread spice. Batter was a tad thick so I added 2-3 tbsp water. They are light, fluffy and moist. Will be keeping this one in my muffin rotation. Thank you.

Zucchini Bread V

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2010
Yummy, this bread is fantastic, although I did tweak it just a bit. I used 1 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup packed brown sugar, omitted the oil, added 1/3 cup water instead and used a generous 1 tsp of ground ginger. I baked it for roughly 45 mins in a 10 inch bundt pan. It turned out to be quite a dense cake, almost pound cake like but oh so yummy. A definite KEEPER!

Broccoli Chicken Braid

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
Yum-O For the most part I did follow the recipe. Just a few additions, I cooked up 2 lrg chicken breast and I was just shy of 2 cups so I added a bit of left over ham. I bumped up the red & green pepper to a 1/2 cup each, finely diced, added about 1/4 minced onion and a heaping tsp of VE Lemon Dilly Dip Mix. I substituted 1 cup of Havarti Cheese for the cheddar. I used a whole egg instead of just the white to brush on and after is was golden, finely shredded about 1/2 cup more of the Havarti and sprinkled it over the top. To say the least it was devoured, will make this again and again. Update: changed it up a bit. Used Monteray Jack Cheese and still using the 2 cans of crescent rolls, made 4 small braids. Brushed with egg and sprinkled with a bit more cheese. Turned out fantastic.

Whole Wheat Carrot-Raisin Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2009
Pretty good, surprisingly light considering no eggs. A little on the bland side, needs a touch more honey or maybe a bit of brown sugar. Used plain yogurt and added extra tsp of vanilla. Got 16 reg size muffins and cooked for 17 mins @ 350F. Will make again with adjustments and am sure it will be tasty with cream cheese icing.

Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
These were ok. I modified it a bit. Used 1.5 cups W/W flout and 1/2 cup white, 1 cup pumpkin (homemade), 1 cup applesauce (homemade) as both are a bit watery, added a 1/2 tsp vanilla and 1/4 cup packed br. sugar. I was a bit concerned after whipping up the batter, cause it was very volumunious, thought it was going to overflow my bowl. A bit bland for my taste, need to bump up the sweetness just a bit, and needs more spice, just didn't taste like what I expected. Will make again, but will try Pumpkin Pie Spice and topping with spice/sugar or a streusel

Rhubarb Jam

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
Super yummy. I have an excess of rhubarb in my freezer and was wondering what to do with it when I came across this recipe. I had roughly 24 cups of rhubarb and got almost 10 - 500ml jars from 2 batches. I bag my rhubarb in 8-cup bags which is roughly the 2lbs as the recipe stated. I used the suggestion of orange juice concentrate as my oranges didn't yield that much juice. I also cut back on the sugar, adding half stirring and then adding more until I got it right sweet/tart flavor I like. I perked up the color by adding some red food coloring too. It took awhile to make, but all in all, this is a keeper in my new jam recipe box.

Caramel Apple Jam

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
This jam is awesome. I agree with other posts/reviews that it tastes more like apple pie that caramel apples. I had a tonne of applesauce in the freezer so I used 6 cups of sauce and left out the butter. I used everything else as listed and it turned out amazing. I made two batches and ended up getting 19 - 250 ml jars. This is definitely a keeper.
