Potato Leek Soup III

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2004
I lightened this up a lot by using only 12 cup of butter and one can of fat-free evaporated milk. I also used Klondike Rose potatoes (a red-skinned gold potato) and left the skin on to add a little color, texture and nutritional value. Even with the changes, it was excellent., I lightened this up a lot by using only 12 cup of butter and one can of fat-free evaporated milk.

Microwave Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2004
This peanut brittle turned out perfectly for me. It was fast and easy to prepare and was BETTER than the peanut brittle I've made before the old-fashioned way. I brought some in to work and it was gone in no time!

Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2005
This was the creamiset, most delicious coconut cream pie I've ever eaten. I made it for guests, and it was very popular. One guest talked about it for days afterwards. Only change I would make...and not really a change..but, I would sprinkle the toasted coconut on individual pieces just before serving, as it does tend to get soggy in the refrigerator (that's assuming there's any left to refrigerate). The contrast between the toasted coconut and the creaminess of the pie is delightful!

Pork Empanadas

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2005
These were good. All three of my kids liked them, which is close to miraculous. They were very handy to keep in the freezer and reheat during the busy week. They were, however, very dry. I tried doubling the salsa..but still found them to be rather dry. I will make them again, but next time I'll brown the roast and cook it in a crock pot. I also doubled the dough ingredients and made the balls a little bigger. That way, when I rolled them out to about 4", I could trim the edges before rolling them the rest of the way. This helped keep them from tearing and made nice even circles.

All-Around Good Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2005
This is a great basic recipe that is especially good for people who tend to skip breakfast. I'm not a morning person..and rarely eat breakfast. But I've been making these every morning. I pour them in a travel cup and drink them on my way to work. The very best thing about these smoothies is that they keep you very satisfied. After having one of these in the morning, I don't feel hungry for at least 4 hours! I usually substitute orange juice for the milk and then skip the honey..and they're still quite delicious! A few tips...you can use whatever type of fruit that you have and cut it up and put it in a freezer bag to save yourself a few minutes of prep time in the morning. also, if you find that you don't like the texture of the ground flax seed..you can just substitute 1 tablespoon of flaxseed oil (trust me, it won't make you fat..I've been having 1 Tbsp almost every morning, and I've lost 60 pounds!). These whip up perfectly in a Magic Bullet blender, plus the cups that come with it are easily transportable.

Cindy's Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2005
This is my family's new favorite pumpkin pie recipe. It is lighter in texture and has a mellower flavor than tradional pumpkin pie.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2005
I've made these several times now..and they always turn out perfectly. Definitely a no-fail recipe. I use all butter instead of the shortening

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2005
excellent muffin. I used frozen berries and found that I needed to increase the baking time by about 5 minutes

Cashew Raisin Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2005
This is a really, really good dish...very tasty and versatile. I think you could adapt it a number of ways. I didn't have cashews or raisins on hand...so I used dried cranberries and toasted pecans, and omitted the pimento. Everyone loved it!

Leek Tomato Dish

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2005
I went to the farmer's market the other day and happened to buy both leeks and tomatoes, so decided to try this. It is really good. Flavorful and so, so easy!!! AS was mentioned, some liquid does accumulate at the bottom..so just serve with a slotted spoon. Also, I was out of sage and thyme, so I just used Italian seasoning...and it tasted great! will definitely make again and again. In fact...I think I'll go back to the farmer's market tomorrow and get some more tomatoes and more leeks :o)

Chocolate Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2005
I've made this several times and it is very well liked by everyone who has tried it. My boyfriend's daughter liked it so much that she requested it for her birthday. I've substituted white chocolate chips (because I was out of reg.) and actually preferred that..it went well with the banana flavor.

Chocolate Chip Orange Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2005
I didn't much care for this at first The flavors all seem to compete with one another. I was going to give it a "thumbs down" review. But then..something miraculous happened. I had wrapped the loaves up nice and snug in some plastic wrap, and the next day I tried another piece..and voila..it was really good...all the flavors blended and merged and learned to cooperate with each other! So, that's my recommendation. When the bread cools, wrap it up nice and tight and let it sit for a day!

Slow Cooker Stuffing

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2005
I've made my stuffing this way for years. If you periodically add some drippings from the turkey, this will come out tasting EXACTLY like it was made inside the bird!

Authentic Enchiladas Verdes

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2005
these are really REALLY good! My boyfriend took some leftovers into work. the guys there tried them and their only complaint was that there wasn't enough of them! I made another pan for him to bring in and share! I baked mine for 30 minutes at 350 degrees to melt the cheese and blend flavors. At first I was worried that they were too spicy...but they weren't at all. My kids hate spicy-hot food and they LOVED these! Easy to make, too.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2005
PERFECT Pizza crust recipe1 It was crispy on the outised, yet still chewy with an excellent flavor! I'll be using this recipe over an over and over! My boyfriend said it was, by far, the best pizza he'd ever had! I oiled my pans with olive oil and sprinkled them with a little cornmeal first and also prebaked the crust for 10 minutes..then put the toppings on and baked for another 10 minutes....turned out perfectly!

Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2005
This is THE best. Perfect. I like to use my old-fashioned stovetop popper for this, because it doesn't leave unpopped kernals...which can be a HUGE problem with caramel corn. Thanks for a great recipe!

Steak and Ale Type Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2005
This is certainly different, but wasn't my favorite. Could've been something I did...but it had a coarse texture. My kids didn't like it..my boyfriend loved it...I'm ambiguous about it. I served it with soup and it did seem to be good for that.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2005
Pretty good, but a tad bland. I drained off the extra drippings about half-way through..and then sliced the loaf into 3 sections to help it cook more consistently

Honey Buttermilk Oatbread

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2005
This made a beautiful loaf of bread that was delicious. I made a loaf for my bread-loving boyfriend. He took some to work and shared it with a work buddy who proclaimed it "(insert profanity here) good"...very high praise indeed coming from him!

Cheesy Vegetable Chowder

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2005
I thought this soup was perfect! The only change I made was to use frozen peas, carrots and beans and added a little extra water then cooked it a few minutes longer before adding the cheese sauce. The consistency was just right..not too thick at all. My kids claim to hate soup..one ended up eating 2 bowls and the other three bowls!
