Crumpets

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2006
I printed out this recipe last night & so far my husband has made me make 3 whole batches!!! I did use bread flour instead of all-purp & used 1 1/2 cups of it, as an epicurean website suggested... FAB!!! Fun, too! Messy & gloopy, I think I'll use 1 1/4 cups instead. Now, I'm looking at peach cans & cookie cutters with CRUMPETS in mind! (I used circular cookie cutters, mason jar rings, and pancake pattern shapes. The kids fight over who gets the heart shaped one! *Oh, split these, too. Cut them with a bread knife & toast them, top w/ oodles & oodles of butter & jam!!! Tea-time in Minnesota will never be the same for this family!!! Thank you for the recipe, dear lady.

Rhubarb Torte

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2006
This was so pretty! It tasted sublime, let me tell you! Rhubarb is NOT a family favorite & now it has become a beloved, free delish-treat in our home. Great to take to a picnic or any gathering, or just after dinner with the fam. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

Fruit Pizza

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2006
Made this for a fantastic-family-dessert, they deserve it! It was SO delish. We ate our peices & the kids could not wait until tomorrow when they could eat another! My husband said his was even better in his lunchbox the next day! Soooooo delicious, so recommended! This would be a fun party dessert! We're thinking of making veggie-pizza & this fruit pizza for a picnic/ potluck next time! Very impressive.

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2006
I made this recipe & added 1 tsp. minced garlic to the dough becuz' my family LOVES garlic... HUGE amount of biscuits & absolutely wonderful!!! Thank you for submitting, now my bubby doesn't need to crave RL just for their biscuits (everything is just too overpriced!) and we'll save our "dough!" Hint: no need to roll out & cut, just drop by tbs. full & they come out cute as ever!!! Oh, also added 3 snipped, fresh chives to butter mixture, outstanding!

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2006
I made a Chick. Tort. Soup another time and it went poorly, I was apprehensive about this but time was short & the day was HECTIC and hubby WANTED soup! SO, I started this recipe at noon & it was done (at high) at 4, I just shredded the chicken breasts (I used three) up right before serving, topping with restaurant style corn chips, crushed, and mexican-style cheese. My husband smelled it, said (as always), "this better be good!" and then wolfed down two heaping bowls full! He told me that night that this was EXCELLENT soup, like he would expect from a restaurant!! Super meal, low-fat and SO good! Thank you! (Makes loads of soup, too! Get ready to freeze some & use some for left-overs for lunch, tomorrow!) My 2 yr.old loved it, 4 yr. old didn't, 7 yr.old ate all & no complaints, and 11 year old LOVED it! I did, too. I'm keeping this one!

Tuna Noodle Casserole II

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2006
This was perfect for a "mom's too busy to cook/bake" dinner! Our not-too-experienced 11 yr. old daughter made this with flare!! She also threw an additional 1/2 cup of french fried onions on top, because she loves them! It was REALLY good! (we also added about 1/2 cup sliced, sauteed mushrooms. We omitted the soup + milk +spices in the pot +warm them up step... Why dirty an additional pot? She just stirred it into the drained noodles! Came out great & only 2 dishes to clean afterward. Smart girl, huh?)

Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2006
Long overdue praise! I made this last Thanks Giving dinner & was totally wowed by it! My borderline diabetic step-dad couldn't leave it alone!! He was craving it as soon as he left our home! I couldn't quit eating it, the topping is scrumptious, it stays crispy and SO good when you just spoon it out & chomp away. It looks wonderful, too! I don't even think I ate more than one slice of (sensational BBQed)turkey & I forwent the pies altogether!!! This was absurdly fantastic! It made a monster out of me! This year, maybe for my step-dad's sake I'll use splenda? for my sake, too, since I just delivered baby #5 a week ago & have a bit of chub to rid... Maybe....

Black Pepper Beef and Cabbage Stir Fry

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2007
used 1/2 bag of coleslaw instead of bok choy! (last time we used bok choy I really, really cleaned it, yet still found a fly within it's many crevaces! Ew, do you blame me?) Added: sliced one onion about 1 tsp minced fresh ginger My entire clan, including ages 2, 4, 7 & 12 ate it up and LOVED it! My husbandand I really enjoyed it! (I was skeptical, ground beef in a Chinese recipe?) I loved that it was incredibly cheap and fast to make. Good on thin, Chinese noodles or Rice! Don't let rice-a-roni know about this! They'll patent it! NOTE: Used ground Turkey, GREAT!

Stir-Fry Pork with Ginger

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2007
If I could give this 20 stars I would! I've been enlisted to start an "all Chinese" menu for 2 weeks or more, a la my husband and there have been 6 nights so far, when my husband dug into this with added stir fried veggies on Basmati rice, my husband said, "I think this is the best you've EVER made, yet!" and I agreed, along with all of our kids --except the 3 month old ;}! Very, very good, nice & salty & with the WW points system, this was 8 with the cup of rice, lower it with brown rice! Mmmm! I ended up adding more soy & a bit more Tahini (sesame oil) & then 1/3 cup water with a heaping tsp of corn starch to make more 'gravy,' which was sensational, by the way. No need to pass the salt.

Bud's Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2006
This was VERY good! I was sceptical about lemon juice in potato salad... my hubby's a mayo/mustard potato salad guy, so this was a gamble. I couldn't get him out of the bowl! Best the day of making, after a day or two, the eggs taste hard & the dressing is absorbed too much for it to be real creamy anymore. Great for company & picnics! Will use often, that's certain!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2007
I feel silly adding any comments to this because of the amount of reviews that RAVE. BUT, my daughter (12) couldn't quit shovelling this down! Our entire family absolutely loved this. Note: I used a 3 1/2 pound roast & had to remove about a pound for it to fit in our crock pot, prior to crocking it all day... also, if you're going to leave the house, don't leave it on HIGH because there's so much going on in there & it just splashed all over through the edges of the lid on mine. DELICIOUS and unbelievably simple! Great with mashed potatoes, yummy gravy!

Vanilla Wafer Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
We used 3/4 Cup sugar, also tried dropping the cookies but they were puffy, unlike "Nilla Wafer" cookies so we rolled about a level teaspoon-full in the palm & then softly flattened. They turned out Excellent! If you like crispy edges, slightly chewey centers, and the taste of sweet, crispy butter --these are a dieter's nightmare on the hips but fantasy on the lips. My husband's a cookie-hater (chocolate-chip is the only one he'll even bother with) and he took a cereal bowl FULL of these from the cooling racks & a mug of milk & went off dunking & munching. ***!!!BEWARE!!!***

Excellent! Served it on boring hamburger buns & still saw my SIL eat 2!!!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
oh, help me! I'm dead This recipe creates a muffin worth 2 bucks each! If not $4! --Otis Spunkimeyer, watch out! These are a WW's nightmare (I think these are well over 12 points each, eek!) but what a treat! Family loves these, the topping makes a sensation on top of apple pies, too!

Big Batch Kris Kringle Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
My husband doesn't even like cookies (can anyone imagine that???) and he gobbled these things down, saying, "These are the best cookies EVER" --next batch was requested without nuts, add extra cherries, he inhaled them. The kids had to fight to get at the cookie plate. Great gift cookies, very pretty, too.

Cookie Dough for Ice Cream (Eggless)

Reviewed: May 11, 2010
Oh, man. This is too addictive. I used Smart Blend instead of butter, Almond milk instead of water and skipped the white sugar, since I added semi-sweet choco-chips... I couldn't stop our daughter from racing me to it! There's only the smallest bit left in the fridge & it's mine!!!
