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.

Lemon Freeze Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2012
I have made been making this for years. I have never used fruit cocktail. I prefer to use blueberries. Be sure your berries are well drained AND dried. (Paper towels will do the trick). There is nothing better than lemon and blueberries. This recipe is requested over and over again and I am always happy to make it.

Banana Bread French Toast

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
Yummmm. So good. I had condensed milk in my pantry, but did not want to open a can for just a few TBLS. I had fat free half and half in fridge, so I used that with 2 TBLS sugar in place of the condensed. I also added 1 tsp. cinnamon to the mixture. This was good. My family liked it and I would not hesitate to serve to guests for breakfast .

Grilled Lemon Herb Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2010
I have been using something similar to this for years. This is what I do. For even more flavor, add about 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce & 1/4 cup of E.V.O.O. to the above recipe. If you are not able to grille chops and must cook on stove, start with a COLD griddle or skillet, place the chops on griddle, then turn on heat and cook as long as needed. This way of cooking will ensure tender chops.

Easy Applesauce

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
Apple cider makes a good apple sauce. I have been making it that way for years. Unsweetened apple juice can also be used for that time of year when cider is not available. ( I use apple cider in my apple pies also. Just boil about 1/2 cup until reduced by half - adds something special to the pie)

Precious Pineapple Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
This cake is the perfect dessert for company. After reading all the reviews and seeing the complaints about the 3 layers being too thin, this is what I did. Using the regular box cake, I also added a small box (Jiffy - 1 layer cake mix) to the batter. Of course, had to add more of the other ingredients. 3/4 cup butter, 5 eggs, 1 1/2 cans crushed pineapple and 3/4 cup pecans. ( toasted the pecans first for a really good flavor). I DID NOT increase the frosting and seemed to have just the right amount. Then baked in 3 pans. The cake was beautiful, nice high layers and presented well.

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2010
These scones are fabulous and I make them often. I add dried cranberries along with orange zest. That is the way my family likes them best, although I have added raisins and cinnamon, etc. I found cutting these into 12 scones made them WAY too large. I form my dough into 3 equal discs, then roll each one out, cutting each disc into 8 equal triangles. Use a large pizza cutter for fast work. Then bake as stated, perhaps a bit shorter time. Once they cool completely, I make a thin glaze using powdered sugar and some orange juice and drizzle over the tops. I also like to add a bit of orange zest to the glaze. The nice thing about these scones is that they freeze "great" and you can pull out as many as you want to thaw. This is much easier than freezing them raw, then baking a few each time you want some, as one other reviewer suggested.

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.

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.

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.

Easy Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2009
Going by the other reviews, I also doubled the "filling" for this cookie bar. I don't believe the amount written would have been enough. I also, like many other reviewers like a stronger lemon flavor, so I used the zest and juice from 1 1/2 lemons. I also added 1 box instant sugar-free lemon pudding to the cream filling and couple drops of yellow food color. The bars are very good. My family liked them. They are kind of like a little cheese-cake cookie. Very good.

Ma's Premium Ice Cream Pie

Reviewed: May 25, 2009
I made this for a large party and so doubled the ice cream part using quarts. I made my own chocolate cookie crumb crust (just google it for the recipe). I made it in a large cheesecake pan with removable sides. Everyone loved it and I will make this again for special occasions.

Caramel Pound Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2008
C'mon folks, you don't have to be a rocket scientist to make this recipe. It is simple. Starting from the first ingredient, 2 1/4 cups brown sugar - down thru the pecans belong in the cake. The remaining ingredients are for the icing. As for the cake....it is delicious and I will make again. My friends loved it.

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.

Strawberry Lemon Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2012
These were very good. The only suggestion I would make is to make them with blueberries (which I did). There is nothing like the combination of blueberries and lemon.

Magic Wands

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2010
I make these for most of our holidays. Just change out the color of the sprinkles to go with the particular holiday. HOWEVER, I do not think icing would harden enough. I have always used melted white chocolate or regular chocolate. Then roll them in the sprinkles before the chocolate hardens and the sprinkles will adhere with no problem. Kids love them and they are so simple to make.

Sliced Tomatoes with Fresh Herb Dressing

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2008
This is fabulous. You MUST use fresh herbs and not the dried stuff. I also purchased fresh mozzarella balls from my local Italian grocery store....sliced the cheese and added to this salad. Other than that, I followed the recipe "as is". My guests loved it and could not get enough of it. Very Yummmmmmy!!!!!!!!!!

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.
