Rachel's Cranberry Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2014
I made this for a ladies luncheon at church. Kept to the recipe exactly except I tripled the recipe. (Used a prepared chicken from Sam's) Instead of taking it in a bowl, I used a cookie scoop and placed a scoop of the salad in mini cupcake papers and placed on a tray. So pretty to display them that way and since there was so much other food there, this was a perfect amount for each lady. Thanks for a very good recipe.

Perfectly Roasted Vegetable

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2014
This is wonderful. I changed out a couple of the veggies and also added some sweet potatoes (did not omit the white potatoes). Very good and perfectly baked. Nice texture and nice carmelization. @ cookin grams - You should have your oven checked out if burnt to a crisp. Also, when baking something like this you should watch carefully toward end of time. This is good. I would advise you to try again.

Homemade Ketchup

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2014
I have a question ( I have not yet tried this recipe). Could this be made in large amounts and then "canned" in a water bath like other veggies and fruits. I would love to make a big batch of this to keep on my pantry shelves for future use. Thanks for any suggestions.

Fresh Peach Dessert

Reviewed: May 28, 2014
I would like to make this dessert for a pot luck church picnic in June. I have a 5 pound bag of graham cracker crumbs in my freezer that I bought at my bulk store. Can anyone tell me how many cups of crumbs I need to equal 16 full crackers. Thanks for any help or suggestions.

Bake Sale Lemon Bars

Reviewed: May 4, 2014
I found these to be very good. Made as is the first time. Wanted a bit more filling, so next time I added an extra 1/3 recipe of filling, baking it just a bit longer. Try the original recipe first THEN give it a 1 star or thumbs down if that is how you feel.

Lemon Coconut Cupcakes

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2014
I only rated this a 3 star recipe. The cupcakes were nice and light, but I made these because of the "lemon". My family likes lemon anything and these did not have much of a lemon taste. Trying to figure out how to make these with more lemon flavor. Perhaps some lemon juice in the batter AND the frosting.

Italian Cookies II

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2014
These were pretty good, but I like my lemon ricotta cookie recipe much better. I make them every year as part of my Christmas cookies.

Jan's Crumb Topping or Streusel

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2014
I have been looking for this type of streusel topping for quite a while. My grand-mother used to make the best topping and this is as close as I am going to get. She taught me how to make many recipes, but for some reason, the streusel was not one of them. Thanks for a great recipe.

Emily's Famous Hash Browns

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2014
These are not hash browns. This is a recipe that has been in my family for generations. I learned how to make them from my German Grandmother. They are called potato pancakes and are delicious served with apple sauce. I still make them on occasion although I now fry them in canola oil rather than the Crisco she used back then. I am now 70 and have handed down the recipe to my 3 children and my older grand children. Enjoy them everyone regardless of what they are called.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2014
This recipe sounds wonderful and has so many fantastic reviews. I do have a question and would like to know if this could possibly be done with just chicken breasts? No one in my family will eat the dark meat. I thought perhaps just do "bone in breasts" with the spices and put onions and garlic in the bag while marinating. Then slow cook the breasts in the oven as the recipe states to do with the whole chicken. If anyone has tried this or has any ideas on cooking the breasts, please advise. Thank you for your help.

Three-Ingredient Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2013
I made this pretty much according to recipe. I did use frozen Italian style green beans (which I blanched and then cooled in ice water) instead of the canned. Also, after reading the other reviews, I cut back a bit on the dressing. This dish was well received by my guests.

Morning Glory Muffins I

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2013
I have made these numerous times. I do change up the recipe a bit. I use half white and half whole wheat flour. I cut the sugar back to just 1 cup and again use half white and half brown sugar. I do like the apple butter in the recipe. Sometimes when I have applesauce in my fridge, I will replace that for the 1/4 cup of oil. Also, depending on what I have on hand, I sometimes replace the toasted wheat germ with milled flax seed. These are a great breakfast muffin and I always double the recipe. They freeze so well and I can pull out as many as needed and just let thaw. I recommend that you try these. I can almost guarantee that you will like them.

Ricotta Cake

Reviewed: May 7, 2013
This is a yummy cake. I made it twice. The first time I followed it to a "T". The second time I also followed the recipe BUT made my own home made ricotta cheese (found on this site). It was even better the second time. The home made ricotta is simple to make. You may want to try it the next time you bake this cake.

Peanut Butter Sheet Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2013
I made this sheet cake for a family gathering. After reading the reviews, I made the following changes. Made the cake as directed, doubled the frosting. Then I made a small amount of chocolate glaze and spooned it into a clean ketchup plastic bottle (the kind you take on picnics). I then drizzled the chocolate over the top in a basket weave pattern. (Not hard at all). I then sprinkled some chopped peanuts over that. The nuts adhere to the icing and chocolate glaze. This not only made it "pretty" but gave it more "peanut" taste. I will admit there was not a crumb left when I went to take my pan home. I plan on making it again for my grand-daughters graduation this coming June.

Honey Butter

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2013
I can't wait to try this recipe with my homemade Oatmeal-Molassas Dinner Rolls. ( food52.com). The only change I make to the dinner roll recipe is I use 1 cup whole wheat flour in place of white and also always use bread flour for the white. (Also, do not put the extra oatmeal on top of rolls as they tend to fall off). A very easy dinner roll and the dough is great. This honey butter will go "super" with these rolls.

Banana Cake II

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2013
This cake was delicious. I took it to work and not one crumb was left. At Alex - your cake was flat. Check the expiration dates on your baking powder and baking soda. If it is near expiration or past, you need to throw it away and buy new. Your cakes will not raise unless these two items are "good".

Caprese Salad with Soybean Walnut Pesto Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2013
This is a very good recipe. I have made salad similar to this in the past, but the pesto in this one gives it that extra special zing. One very important thing is to be sure you buy FRESH mozzarella cheese (not the kind you get sliced, i.e. american, swiss, etc). Your Italian supermarket OR any large chain supermarket will carry this type at their deli counter. When ordering, be sure to tell them you want the fresh kind. My guests and my family liked this recipe.

Rainbow Cupcakes

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2012
I made these cupcakes for a family cook-out. After reading all the reviews and seeing the complaints about them being dry, I simply used a white box cake mix and tinted them per this recipe. No problem with dryness and everyone (especially the kids) loved the different colors.

Marzetti® Hawaiian Slaw

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2012
I made this for a church picnic. WOW, it went fast. I doubled the recipe, used golden raisins and added dried cranberries, along with the pineapple, coconut, and chopped almonds. Now here is my secret. I made my own Mango Poppy Seed dressing. To die for!!!!!!!!! Yummy and I brought home a very large empty aluminum pan.

Poppyseed Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2012
I made this for a salad I was taking to a pot luck church picnic. My salad called for "Mango PoppySeed dressing. I KNEW I was not going to find it in my area, so looked up this recipe. I made the dressing, adding a large mango to the mix before I put in blender. It was fantastic. I did cut back on the amount of oil, and used white wine vinegar, but other than that, made as stated.
