Wheat Crackers

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2008
Thanks so much to the person who submitted this recipe; as other reviewers have said, it's a great basic technique that's perfect for tweaking according to the tastes of your family. I'm always looking for ways to cut down on the processed foods I buy. Using this recipe I can know exactly what I'm putting in my body. I found that I had to add a bit more water than the recipe called for, and I did include some additional salt and spices. Next time I make them (and there WILL be a next time!), I'll try the all-whole-wheat route. Thanks again!

Colleen's Potato Crescent Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
Wow. Every step of this process was so fun. The dough came together easily, and overall the recipe is a keeper: simple, unique, and delicious. That's a combination I don't often find! I'm so excited to have a good make-ahead bread recipe for the holidays. I did make a couple of substitutions, but the technique as listen in the recipe is fool-proof so I didn't change that! I used honey instead of sugar, and butter rather than shortening, and I subbed 1 cup of the flour with whole wheat.

Pork Chops with Apple Curry Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2006
Delicious and unique. Some folks have complained about a strange flavor -- keep in mind that "curry powder" is a general term for a hundred possible combinations of spices. If you get a good-quality curry powder from a gourmet shop, and stay away from nasty grocery-store brand yellow American-style curry powder that's mostly turmeric, you'll find the recipe much more appealing!

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
Thanks so much to the creator of this recipe! I used whole wheat graham flour for a heartier flavour, and butternut squash instead of pumpkin. I also had to add more milk, but was thrilled with the result. Delicious! Also, I buy my spices fresh in bulk and had to use far less than the recipe called for -- maybe the problem some previous reviewers have had with blandness is because their spices are too old and stale.

Bill's Braisin Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2006
This is EXACTLY what I was looking for. I didn't have raisin bran so I subbed a multi-grain cereal with raisins, dates, and pecans. Also added lots of cinnamon. Fabulous!!

Irresistible Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2006
This is a biscuity bread that tastes fine but it is NOT Irish soda bread -- though it bears a small resemblance to special-occasion Irish cakes. We had both soda and "wheaten" or brown soda bread in Ireland, and they were hearty, heavy, and earthy. A previous reviewer was right to bring up the famine -- eggs, butter, and sugar were ingredients used for festive occasions only. Perhaps this recipe needs to be renamed as a tea-cake, but shouldn't be associated with the everyday staple food of generations of Irish peasants.

Slow Cooker Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2005
Oh, SO delicious! I am eating the leftovers from this recipe right now. I was completely over the moon about a lasagna recipe that doesn't require heating up the oven (which in turn heats up my tiny apartment unbearably) and the fact that it turned out amazingly well and got raves from the friends I had over after church put this one at the top of my list. I agree with the other reviewers-- 8 hours is too long. I put everything together while I was getting ready for church and by 1 o'clock when we all got back, it was perfect, brown and caramelized on the sides (mmm, my favorite) and gooey and cheesy in the middle. I also added chopped zucchini to the sauce and frozen spinach to the cheese part just for a few more vitamins. Amazing!
