Chicken and Dumplings III

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
This was great and really easy. I didn't use celery, like so many other people. The dumplings cook best when they're made pretty small, if too big they can be kind of doughy.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2007
Gosh this was good! Much healthier without the crust, and used Splenda in the apples instead of regular sugar. Also soaked the apples in spiced cider for more moisture and flavor. Delicious.

Glazed Meatloaf I

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2005
Easy and tasty meatloaf. I used a packet of onion soup mix, so didn't add the bouillion granules. Still, it was too salty, so next time I'll just use half a packet. Didn't add lemon juice either. And for leaner meatloaf, I used 99% fat free ground turkey breast and it was very very good. I only used 1.1 lbs of ground turkey, but left the other measurements alone, and it turned out fine. I used a hearty nut and seed hearty bread for the crumbs, and the texture was very nice. Easy, tasty, and pretty healthy.

Luscious Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2005
Forget tubs of greasy flavorless expensive storebought frosting!!! This frosting is so easy and so good. To make the luscious chocolate frosting, if you don't have baking chocolate on hand, mix about 1/4 cup cocoa powder with 2 tablespoons of melted butter and add to frosting.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2005
I make big batches of this dough, roll it into a tube shape in a sheet of wax paper, and store in the fridge for a batch of hot fresh snickerdoodles whenever the family wants them. The dough stays good for about a month or so. After placing the balls of dough on the sheet, I dip a glass in the sugar/cinnamon mixture and squash the cookie just a bit for a flatter crisper cookie. Substituting half of the flour for whole wheat flour makes a chewier cookie with a slightly nutty flavor, but is more healthy and still tastes great.

No Bake Cookies I

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2005
Satisfy your chocolate/peanut butter cravings FAST! These no-bake cookies are a breeze to whip up, and can be made with regular oats as well, for a slightly chewier texture. I genenrally use a bit more cocoa powder because of my chocolate addictions...

Mexican Chicken Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2008
This was really good. I used my crockpot to simmer the chicken breasts for a few hrs in the bouillion/cumin/garlic mix to eliminate the sauteing in butter step, which saved a few calories and effort. I used whole milk instead of 1/2 and 1/2. Skipped the cheddar, but put a dollop of sr cream on top which was pretty tasty.

Cranberry Orange Wheat Scones

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2008
I rarely give 5 stars. When a recipe is pretty darned good and worth repeating, I'll give it 4 stars. This recipe I would give even more than 5 stars! It is a simple recipe that yields really spectacular flavor and texture. I did not have OJ, so I used more milk. I didn't have orange zest, so I used 2 Tbs of orange extract, which was more than plenty. I also used the orange-essence dried cranberries. I did substitute wheat bran for the wheat germ, and opted for 1/2 white flour 1/2 whole wheat flour. The texture was fantastic, flavor wonderful. Delicious with honey butter.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies I

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2008
You know, I love a good oatmeal raisin cookie. However, I was out of raisins and substituted orange-essence dried cranberries, and I may never go back! They were just absolutely delicious. This is a softer cookie - not a crisp cookie. I like both kinds, depending on my mood. I also liked the size of this batch - about 24 good sized cookies, so not so many that they'll go bad before we can eat them. Very yummy iced with cream cheese frosting, still warm with a glass of ice cold milk. I substituted all of the regular granulated sugar with Splenda, and it didn't hurt the appeal at all!

Spiced Applesauce Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2008
MMM. Wow! Fantastic! I used 1/2 white and 1/2 whole wheat flour, and instead of 1 cup of white sugar I used 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup splenda. I also added 1/2 cup of glazed walnuts and replaced the individual spices with pumpkin pie spice. I reduced the oil to about 1/4 cup with no effect on quality or taste. This stuff is heavenly and pretty darned healthy.

Glazed Nuts

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2008
Glazed nuts, particularly almonds, are very popular during Christmas in Germany. I really like these with a bit of salt to offset the sweetness.

Famous Coconut-Almond Balls

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2005
After you pour in the hot corn syrup, let it set a little bit to cool. The coconut will hold its shape better. If you find it doesn't hold together, wait a little longer. Firm the balls up in the freezer, and use a fork to dip them in the chocolate. I used butter instead of shortening, and I used 1/2 cup in the chocolate to get a runnier consistency, it made dipping much easier.

Best Toffee Ever - Super Easy

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2008
I didn't know toffee was so easy! It was also delicious. Too bad it has so many calories - I could eat a whole batch!

New England Clam Chowder I

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2005
I have never made clam chowder before. My 8 yr old dug up clams over the weekend, so I was determined to use them in this soup. It was pretty easy, even though cutting up clams was kind of gross. I washed and diced the clams pretty small. I diced the bacon and fried it in the bottom of the soup pot. When it was crisp I added the onions and cooked until about done, then threw in the clams. In the meantime, I was simmering the diced potatoes in a bottle of clam juice, for a stronger clam taste. I mixed a cup of milk with some flour and poured that into the bacon/onion/clam mixture and stirred until thick. Once the potatoes were tender, I threw them w/the clam juice into the soup pot. I then added more milk until I reached the right consistancy. This was fantastic clam chowder - better than any I've had at a restaurant. I was pretty happy with myself! And my daughter was proud too, though she wouldn't touch the stuff with a 10 ft pole...

Russian Tea Cakes I

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
Super easy, delicate shortbread taste. Made with pecans instead, they tasted just like pecan sandies. Dough is crumbly but very easy to work with.

Babe Ruth Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
Wow! I used up two 'healthy' cereals that my family wouldn't touch with a 10' pole and they gobbled up the cookies. I used some high fiber O's type cereal and some high protein granola. Very tasty - not low cal at all, but for my long hikes and bike rides, they're great.

Saltine Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2008
These are excellent and easy! The saltines sort of balance out the 'too sweet' taste of typical toffee. The saltines do tend to go stale, so best to store in fridge and eat within a week.

Dark Molten Chocolate Cakes

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2010
Really amazing! You really have to go against your gut instinct though and pull these out way before you think you should. Dusted with powdered sugar and a scoop of vanilla ice cream makes for an elegant and delicious dessert! I buttered my ramekins and dusted them with a combination of cocoa powder and powdered sugar. I also used dark chocolate chips in place of the baking chocolate. Not as intense of a chocolate flavor, but still wonderful.

Pecan Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2005
What's not to like? This tastes like everything I want in a pecan pie, only better, because I added 1/2 cup of Amaretto instead of 3 tablespoons... Especially good in a shortbread crust!
