Cranberry Sauce I

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2006
Very good - my only suggestion would be to add a bit of grated orange peel, and to use fresh OJ. I followed other reviewers and placed this in half a hollowed out orange for presentation. Place autumn colored leaves on a plate, place the orange over that. Save a few cranberries to place on the plate too. Looks so pretty!

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
This is a really moist and sweet cake like cornbread that is delicious! We add just a touch less sugar.

Baked Beans from Scratch

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
Fantastic when used as a base recipe. I added white vinegar (1-2 tsp), 1/2 tsp dry mustard, a dash of poultry seasoning and used red kidney beans as that was what we had on hand. It needs a tang to counter the sweet. I also cooked the onion and garlic first for a more complex flavor.

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
This was surprisingly good and we will make it again. Reading reviews about dryness, I added a can of corn and diced chiles, both with the juices, and half cup of chunky salsa. I also added 3 cloves of garlic and cumin as we like spice. I did not add the salt other than a dash of Lawry's - a half teaspoon would have been way too much. Served it on small whole wheat tortillas with a bit of cheddar and lettuce folded like a taco. With my additions this will serve 4 people easily.

JIF® Irresistible Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2007
This has been my go to PB cookie recipe for years. I do not like to cook with shortening but really this is the best out there. To make it taste even better reduce the salt to half a tsp and add 1 cup salted spanish peanuts (skin on). So good.

Yakitori Don

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2007
Very good - I added sesame oil and a lot more Sake, and less soy sauce as I felt 2/3 a cup would have been way too salty. We did not have Mirin so I added Oishi sauce and served with sticky white rice and zucchini sticks with onion sauteed in ginger and soy sauce. Really tasty meal thanks.

Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2007
I have made these several times and they are so wonderful and flavorful - they are the best sugar cookie recipe I have found. I add 1 tsp each vanilla and almond extract. If you find your dough too runny you didn't add enough flour just adjust. I find 2 1/4 to be perfect. I use Nutri-flour it is a great way to sneak a little health into the little one's treats. I teach children and hand these out the final day of class. I cut these into letter shapes and frost with white icing then let the kids take turns speed drawing on them with edible food markers (1 minute) it is great fun for everyone :)

Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies II

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2006
Very good but do NOT bake the frosting - it bubbled and crystalized and was not near as pretty. Adding the fudge later keeps it glossy and dark looking - sooo much prettier and tastier (make it while cookies cooling)

Coconut Shrimp I

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2006
Made this to get rid of a huge bag of coconut I had in my pantry. Great recipe. I added sugar to the batter but won't do that again - it made the batter change and become more brittle. Keep the sweet on the side.

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: May 16, 2006
Wonderful flavor but because of the high sugar content the glaze burned a bit too much for my taste. Next time I will bake it at 300 covered with foil, then take the foil off at the end. I did not have curry so made my own with plenty of paprika, garlic, pepper, tumeric and cumin. Serve with rice and a salad with a lemon oil dressing - the fresh tart flavor went so well with the carmel sweet spice.

Banana Pancakes I

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2006
I confess I only tried this recipe because I love the Jack Johnson song. I am such a nerd. But I really liked the flavor. The trick to getting this recipe right is to almost liquidate the banana (use just one). I also added about 4 TBS of sugar, 1 TBS vanilla, 1/2 tsp cinammon and used buttermilk in place of milk. Makes the house smell so lovely and tastes great!

Orange, Walnut, Gorgonzola and Mixed Greens Salad with Fresh Citrus Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2006
This salad is to die for! After making it a few times I have found what works best for us. I added a bit less OJ (1/4 cup less, be sure to use fresh squeezed), half the sugar and I use brown not white, and added half a clove of crushed garlic to give it a kick. Added some salt and a bit more Dijon (1TBS) as well. I also used mandarin oranges in a pinch they will work as well. Sometimes I use pecans and chevre cheese in place of walnuts and gorgonzola. Both are excellent. Heaven.

Seafood Chowder

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2010
delicious! I didnt add all the butter - rather I used a bit of the bacon drippings and 1 tbs butter and it was perfect. I cubed little red potatoes skin on, added fresh thyme and skipped the curry too.

Classic Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
For once I didn't change a thing except to use frozen blueberries in place of raisins and add extra vanilla. Moist, full of flavor, and so yummy! I am so impressed. Next time I will try half honey half molasses. I think you can't go wrong with fruit/sweetener/liquid changes. The perfect base recipe,that is even perfect with NO changes. Thank you!

Summer Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2007
I have made this 4 times now and we enjoy it. We prefer it with red potatoes and to not use the oil but rather to add a bit more mayo if it needs it. A bit of seasoning and celery salts, and less lemon and you have quite a good salad!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2007
Really good I will use again but will add more vanilla and only 1 1/2 cups chips this was still a ton. I recommend flattening them a bit before you bake them. Using 1/4 cup scoop this recipe only made 12 cookies for me. But boy there were huge!
