Cranberry Scones

Reviewed: May 9, 2005
I love this recipe. Made the scones for Mother's Day brunch and they were a big hit! No leftovers. I took the advice of previous reviews: dropped dough by the spoonful on cookie sheet, brushed with egg wash and sprinkled sugar on top of scones and substitued orange craisins. Great flavor and beautiful scones.

Very Easy Fruit Salad

Reviewed: May 9, 2005
This salad was a big hit at my Mother's Day brunch. I prepared it the night before minus the bananas (advice of previous reviews)and only used about 3/4 of the can of pie filling. The next morning I added the bananas and some fresh raspberries. The salad was beautiful and tasted great.

Beth's Orange Cookies

Reviewed: May 10, 2008
Oh no! I don't know where I went wrong, but these cookies did not turn out. They spread thin as a pancake and burned very easily. I really wanted this recipe to turn out for my Mother's Day tea. I scaled the recipe in half and did attempt to salvage the batter by adding more flour and baking soda. We got one tray of decent cookies, but it was all downhill after that.

Coconut Cream Cake II

Reviewed: May 12, 2008
This is a great and yummy recipe. I made it the first time for a birthday cake. It was so popular, everyone loved it. I made it again as cupcakes for a Mother's Day brunch and everyone asked for the recipe. I make one minor change - I use 1/4 cup applesauce in place of the oil. The cake is so moist and holds up well with the frosting. Love it!

Spicy Mango Sweet Potato Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
Made this for Father's Day dinner. It was so yummy and way easier then I thought it would be. I only added half the suggested amount of hot sauce (figured I could add more if needed) and it was just the right amount of heat for us. A very unique and different recipe!

Zucchini Chocolate Rum Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
I'm not sure what went wrong, but my cake turned out a little on the dry side. However, it was very yummy and everyone loved the extra chocolate the chips added. I served it warm with ice cream to cover up the dryness. It was a big hit!

Banana Bread V

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2008
I'm not sure where I went wrong, but this bread had a weird texture. It tasted find - I added vanilla and cinnamin, but it was very dense in the middle. I couldn't serve it for brunch to guests, but ate it with my afternoon tea. I'll try a few other recipes on the website.

Zucchini Granola Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2008
Good, earthy recipe. Two things I had to do different: first, made as bar cookies because I don't have any cookie sheets at the moment and second, did not add chocolate chips because I didn't realize we were out of them. I individually wrapped the cookies in plastic wrap to store them. Should be great, quick breakfast bars through the week.

Hearty Ranch and Bacon Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
Very good recipe, but I cheated and used canned potatoes. Cut the cooking time down and made for easy mashing. Will make again!

Basil Pesto Bread Rounds

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2010
I loved this easy recipe and LOVED the taste! I took it to two holiday parties and it was a huge hit all around! I did not toast the bread ahead of time because I forgot that step. One jar of pesto went far, so it's also very affordable.

Creamy Dill Cucumber Toasties

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2010
This was a huge hit at my Christmas Party! The funny thing is, I used a ranch dry dressing mix! I wrote it down wrong on my shopping list. Still turned out great! Followed all the other instructions. Reminded me of little tea sandwiches! I didn't have any leftovers!!

Oma's Rhubarb Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
Excellent moist cake! I only had whole wheat flour on hand, but otherwise followed the recipe. It was gone in 24 hours! Everyone loved it, even the non-rhubarb people!

Rhubarb Custard Pie II

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
Made this for Sunday dinner and they ate the entire thing! I used blueberries and rhubarb and vanilla flavored soy milk (omitted the vanilla extract and milk). I though it was very good and my family could not have agreed more! Thanks for the recipe!

Apple Walnut Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
I LOVE this recipe! It's moist and flavorful. I used no oil and baked as mini loaves for a gift basket. Smelled like heaven when baking, so I could barely contain myself when they came out of the oven. So worth peeling all those apples!!

Spinach Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
Made this for a small get together. Big hit, went great with red wine. I had never made stuffed mushrooms, so I thought it was a bit time consuming cleaning the darn things, so I only did about 20. That's just me, not a reflection on the recipe. Tasted great!!
