Simple Beef Pot Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2014
An excellent recipe for this type of roast. Those that complained that it was too well cooked.........well a pot roast is supposed to be cooked a long time. If you want a roast of beef (e.e. standing rib or sirloin) you do not cover it and it is a completely different type of cooking. Thanks for one of the few pot roasts that turn out very tender and still do not taste as tho it was stewed. Highly recommend this recipe and even a beginner cook will have total success if they follow his directions and not what they think.

Mouth Watering Ribs

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2005
Thanks for a very simple and tasty recipe. This is just the sort of rib recipe I have been looking for. I live in Portugal all winter where we have wonderful pork and this will fill the bill.

Wonder oatmeal muffins. Have tried many recipes and found most to be bland and tasteless but these are really worthwhile. Thanks.

Best Tuna Melt (New Jersey Diner Style)

Reviewed: May 19, 2011
This was my first time to make a tuna melt!!!!!! and decided to prepare it for friends for lunch. Everyone loved it and definitely the Red Wine vinegar makes a big difference. Also rye bread enhances the flavor. Even my husband like it and he really isn t keen on canned tuna.

Beef Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2005
Made this pot roast last night and was very surprised. Normally I do not like meat overcooked (which is usually the case with potroasts). This turned out moist and even slightly pink. I did perk it up by adding 1/4 cup each of red wine and beef broth. Thank you for an excellent recipe.

Special Salmon Steaks

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2013
Have had your recipe in my files for quite awhile but only got to making it last weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed it and my husband said it was even better than our normal barbecued ones...so that is really good. I am going to make it again tonight but will add some lemon zest besause we really like lots of lemon. Thanks for a recipe that will also be used to company....it is simple and deightful

Roasted New Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2013
Just easy crispy and simple potato recipe...no changes needed. For those of you who felt that the heat was too high...at a lower heat you do not achieve such a nice crispy crust and also has a better flavor.

Cream Cheese Brownies III

Reviewed: May 25, 2011
This is definitely a 5 star brownie and had one very similar to this. Having said this I sometimes change it slightly by incorporating finely diced and drained maraschino cherries into the cream cheese mixture (with a hint of almond extract). This does not alter my review of 5 stars on this recipe but just another way of changing the flavors. Highly recommend this brownie and for the reviewer who used a pyrex dish I agree that it isn't the right one!!having had similar experiences in the past.

Cinnamon Coffee Cake III

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2013
This is a tried and true favorite recipe that has been around for awhile but have never never used shortening. Someone complained about it being dry and that might be the cause. Granted shortening makes for a lighter textured cake but does not have the taste of butter. Or you can use half butter and half shortening but not all shortening.

Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2012
This is one of those reliable and almost never fail recipes. Wonderful with lemon sauce or whipped cream. Adjust spices to taste. If someone tried this with blackstap molasses am not sure the results would be good.......nearly always if a recipe calls for molasses blackstrap is clearly stated. So....if it is not a success it would be better to make as the contributor printed it.

Cheesy Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2012
Totally sinful but good!!! Those who have had trouble with it thickening up might not have used BAKING POTATOES. I would think that is the problem.

Unbelievable Grilled Garlic Bread

Reviewed: May 21, 2012
This is probably one of the best breads of its type on this site and have been making it for several years. Also have served it in appetizer size and there never seems to be enough. Highly recommend. P.S. you can also play around with different cheeses to suit your taste.

White Chocolate Cheesecake with White Chocolate Brandy Sauce

Reviewed: May 31, 2011
The best white chocolate cheesecake (at least for my taste) that I have found. It is the chocolate brandy sauce that puts it over the top. Gives the white chocolate flavour some zing and also does not taste sickenly sweet. Thanks goes into my file forever.

Lemon Chiffon Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2006
This is an excellent cake. I have been making chiffon cakes of different types for years. This is the best lemon one to date and have topped it with blueberry sauce which seems to be enhanced by the lemon flavor. A keeper. Thanks.

Rougemont Applesauce Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
For us this is an excellent applesauce cake. some recipes are more like breads but because pf the cake and pastry flour this is definitely a cake. Much lighter than most and keeps so well. I do make it with half shortening and half butter because of flavor. Thanks for a lovely addition to my files.
