Hamburger Soup II

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2004
This was great and simple! I used frozen corn instead of peas and added a little extra water. Great soup for those who don't like tomato chunks but like the tomato taste.

Spicy Fried Green Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2005
This recipe was great when I modified it. It's not spicy at all, but that was fine. I had to add a lot more flour to get a thick enough consistency for a batter that would stick. I fried these at 375 degrees in a deep fat fryer. They were delicious! Just add more flour. I also like to salt the tomatoes while they are cooling.

Soft Apple Butter Delights

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2005
This was a great way to get rid of some apple butter! The batter was very soft, and my cookies were a little flatter than I had hoped, but they tasted great. I only cooked them 8 minutes as 10 was too much, and this reciped yielded 13 dozen for me. I'm not sure I would lable this as nutritious, but certainly a great snack on a fall day. Not so great in the summer--I'll freeze them for some cooler weather.

Applesauce Cake IV

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2005
I gave this cake 5 stars even though mine didn't turn out the way I expected, which was my own fault--I used Spenda instead of white sugar and the cake did not rise well. The flavor is still excellent, but I have a very dense cake. It is recommended that for cakes to use an 8" pan instead of 9" and add 1/2 c. non-fat dry milk and 1/2 tsp. soda for every cup of Spenda. Wish I would have checked into this before! Also, I left out the raisins, would be better with walnuts I think.

Wow! Super delicious, no need to change anything on this recipe! Fresh peaches add a wonderful flavor to this very moist cake.

Sweet and Sour Meatballs I

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2005
This recipe tasted great, but I needed to add a few ingredients. I added oatmeal to the beef and needed much more sauce. I used the sauce as directed but added ketchup, brown sugar, and vinegar to double the amount of sauce. With a doubled amount, it was just right. Also, I felt that straight chili sauce would be too spicy for some family members; the ketchup cooled it down.

Honey Oat Beer Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2006
Very good. The oats give a very comforting taste, and the beer ads a warm flavor. I like that this contains ingredients I usually have on hand.

Baked Zucchini Chips

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2006
I was very pleased with this recipe, but only after I took into consideration all the other tips. I used a baking stone and sprayed lightly with cooking spray. I also added red pepper flakes, garlic powder, and Emeril's essence to the mix and salted after baking. Using an entire egg, not just the whites, seemed to work fine for me for getting the crumbs to stick. Also, I used a yellow zucchini--very tasty results. Update 9-2-10: I now make this all the time for "fried" green tomatoes in the oven and get requests for it all the time. And I always add chipoltle powder too. Yummy for zucchini, green tomoatoes, and yellow squash!

Chocolate Wave Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2006
Wonderful! A hit with everyone! The contrasting colors make for an interesting bread. I left out the walnuts and used large chocolate chips. I will definitely use this recipe again.

Zucchini Coconut Loaf

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2006
For some reason, my loaf turned out a little dense--possibly a mis-measurement on my part. I left out the raisins and nuts, and added extra coconut--very tasty results, even if it was heavy.

Pam's Bierocks

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2006
I think these turned out great! I cut the recipe in half. My husband didn't like them because of the cabbage, but my other family members did. I think that I'll make this again with just cabbage and onions for me (vegetarian), and I think I'll make them for my husband without the cabbage and with some italian seasoning and mozzarella. Would be great with broccoli and cheddar or left over roast with gravy and onions. Also would be good if you flavored the dough with garlic for Italian fillings, or an onion flavor would be nice too. You could freeze these and reheat since the recipe makes so many. There are endless possiblities for fillings, but the dough turned out perfectly for me!

Krautkrapfen (Bavarian Kraut Crullers)

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2006
I loved the taste of these, but the dough was a little tricky. Maybe I didn't make it correctly. It was a little hard on the outside of the roll-ups. I wonder what could make is softer? Basting during cooking? The insides and bottom were delicious and soft like a dumpling. I thought the apple would make it too sweet, but not at all. I used a tarter apple. Also, being a vegetarian, I left out the bacon and bouillon, and I think the recipe was perfect without it. But, for those who eat meat, this would also be good with tiny bits of sausage inside. Maybe some leftover brats would work good. My family was mystified by them, but I'll think I'll make them again. I need to work on the rolling up proceedure to get it a little tighter. I did use less sauerkraut and more apple. I cut the recipe in half and only used 8 oz. kraut. Good stuff and a nice change.

Stuffed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2006
I enjoyed making this recipe because it contained ingredients that I had on hand and not the traditional cream of mushroom soup that I see so often in pork chop recipes. Ironically, I'm a vegetarian who cooks meat for her husband, so I can't tell you how this tasted, but I know my husband devoured it, and he usually only wants "shake and bake" pork chops. I like to make things with a little more flare. This was simple yet a little more sophisticated than the shake and bake :) I would definitely make this for any carnivorous company. The gravy was absoluetly beautiful! Securing the chops with toothpicks really helped keep the stuffing inside. I used 2 slices of dried bread cubes instead of the crutons, and it turned out perfectly.

Broken Thermostat Curry

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2006
I love this recipe! It's my new favorite! I will make it over and over again. I wouldn't call it "broken thermostat" because it's not too hot, but as the submitter said, it's "mildly spicy." I think I'll add more red pepper flakes next time. Also, I cut this in half and it was perfect. I was wary about the yams--but they were great! I served it over jasmine rice and am thoroughly enjoying it right now!

Emily's Famous Popcorn

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2006
I make this all the time! This is the best popcorn ever! I don't use the butter, and the spices stick just fine from the oil it was popped in. This is such a better alternative to microwave popcorn! Sometimes I add tumeric as well, and today I just added some chipotle powder for a little kick, but the cumin and nutritional yeast (so creamy) are what make it the greatest for me!

Lentil Soup I

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2006
This was a pleasant experience for my first taste of lentil soup. I knew they were good for me but was never brave to try them. I used 1.5 cups veggie broth instead of chicken broth and 6.5 cups of water after reading the reviews. I also used a cup of diced yams since I was all out of potatoes--it was great with the yams! I did kind of combine this recipe with Lentil Soup III by Molly and added cumin instead of cloves (I'm not a fan of cloves) and 1/8 c. of tomato paste. I think I'll try it with cloves to see what it's like next time. Oh, and once the lentils started boiling, I add the rest of the ingredients and didn't mash the yams--the soup cooked in plenty of time--next time I'll used leftover mashed potatoes.

Lentil Soup III

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2006
A good first experience with lentils. I cut this recipe in half and got about 5 servings, but I did use 1.5 c. of veggie broth and 6.5 c. of water. I sort of combined this recipe with Lentil Soup I by William by adding potatoes (in my case, sweet potatoes), celery, carrot, and onion. I think I'll add more cumin next time--it's one of my favorite spices! By the way, I added the veggies once the lentils began to boil.

Cranberry Corn Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2006
This is delicious! I used white cornmeal since I didn't have yellow--and the cornbread was very pretty. I also used sugar-in-the-raw, but I'm not sure what difference that would make. I will make this every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas too!

Best Ever Spinach Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2006
I always, always double this recipe because it is so popular. I also bake it in a stoneware casserole so it stays warm for quite a long time. It's emabarrasingly simple and easy--but we love it!

Green Pea Poulourie

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2007
Very interesting. Best as a side dish--not as a snack like I fixed them. Not sure what I would fix them with--but worth a second try.
