Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
I thought it would be too much sugar, but I used what it called for anyway. It was really good. I added raisins and, instead of raisins, will add small chunks of pineapple next time. I made 6 loaves. I have so much zucchini in my garden, I will be making this again soon and freezing it. I will give some away at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Thanks v monte for this recipe!

Gary's Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
Made these Friday for my husband. Like to make a surprise for him on Fridays when he gets home from work. He ate two before he took his coat off. 1 reviewer was right when she said there was way too much filling. I bought two more packs of mushrooms to use my remaining filling. Did not need so much butter either. I put my onion and garlic in the food processor. I forgot the garlic was supposed to go in the butter. So I had garlic in the butter and in the fillng. I used canned crabmeat. Except for the extra mushrooms, I had everything I needed already in the house to make this wonderful recipe. Will make again. Thanks Gary

No Commercial Yeast Starter

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2009
It was hard for me to wait 2 days to use this starter. It did start bubbleing right away. It started to smell sour after about 2 days. After following the sourdough bread lll recipe on this site I put it on the rise. I could see it rise before my eyes! I am dead serious. I was so excited. I decided to feed my starter and put it in the refrigerator. I showed it to my husband so he would not throw it out. I can't wait until tomorrow to see how much more this dough has risen.

Layered Egg Noodle Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
This was a very good recipe. I loved the seasonings used in the meat sauce. The white sauce that went on top of the meat sauce was wonderful and decadent. I made home made egg noodles. This did not add to the recipe as I hoped it would. Save yourself some time and buy the packaged noodles. Next time I think Iwill double the white sauce and mix half of it with the noodles...then layer as directed. Also, as far as the directions go, I always saute and drain my meat before I add my vegetables. This way I don't throw any flavor of the vegetables out with the grease. Also, I used Romano cheese instead of Parmesan. Thanks Donna.

Reuben Sandwich II

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2010
This was wonderfully delicious. I made this for my husbands's supper and he loved it. It is too good to be so quick and easy. I took the advice of some reviewers and heated my saurkraut, put it between the meat and cheese, and did not rinse my saurkraut. We like it tangy too. Thank you Colette G. You get 5 stars from me.

Country Manor Breakfast Tart

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2010
made this this morning for church. Read the reviews first, so I knew it would take a little longer than 40 minutes to cook. Except for the crust, I followed the directions exactly. It got nothing but raves. It IS a lot of work, but it is worth it. It is very rich so, if you like you can use fat free half and half instead of heavy cream. I love basil. Wonderful, wonderful dish. Thank you bettina.

Spicy Bloody Mary Mix

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2010
Once when my husband and I were out on the town, we stopped at the Hilton Hotel and had a drink. I ordered a bloody mary. I have been talking about it ever since. It was soooo good. Well, i have found it in this recipe. I used tomato juice, not V-8 because vegetable juice is a little sweet. I skipped the Splenda. I did not want any sweet taste. I doubled the steak sauce and Worcestershire sause. I trippled the celery salt. Everything else was the same. I'm giving this a 5 because of the ingredients. After 30 years, I have found how to make the Hotel Hilton Bloody Mary.

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2010
I made this last night for my husband who is the worlds greatest guiny pig. I tested it on him because I want to make it for my church this coming Sunday. He didn"t say too much. I, on the other hand, thought it was wonderful. But, you know what? He didn't have to say anything. He kept going back into the skillet eating what was left. Actions speak louder than words. Thank you C, Perez. Will be making this for church and home again and again! I forgot to mention that I did take the advise of other reviewers and added chicken broth and I pounded it out a little. 4/21/10 Had church fellowship. The menu was fried, grilled and bbq chicken, potato salad, and green beans. Of course, I added the Spicey Garlic Lime Chicken on my own. THEY WENT CRAZY. It was like word of mouth. I asked them to try it. After they tried it they started spreading the news. There was none left. You can really tweak this recipe. Because I quadrupled the recipe (I used 16 chicken breasts) I had a lot more sauce, but still needed a little more. I pounded the chicken as suggested by one reviewer and added 1 cup of chicken broth as suggested by another reviewer. Because there was more liquid than I had in the original I thickened it a little with a mixture of cornstarch and water. Because i flattened the breast, which made them appear larger, I was able to cut them in half after they were cooked. So, I had 32 pieces of chicken. Next time I will add more chicken broth and maybe some mushrooms and onions.

Sparkling Punch

Reviewed: May 20, 2010
I could not find sparkling cidar, so I used regular cidar. I did not get a chance to taste it. It went too fast. Must have been good. Katherine

Salmon Croquettes

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2010
My mother's salmon croquettes (this is what she called them, never salmon patties or salmon cakes) were always plain and simple, but good. Onion, egg, flour, salt and pepper is all she added. She rolled them in flour. I wondered if there might be something a little different so I went to my favorite site. I found this wonderful recipe at allrecipes. I added a little more onions and celery than it called for. That's probably why they didn't hold together very well. I like the veggies, though, so next time I will add a little flour. I also will add a little salt and pepper. I was worried that the wheat germ would not be a good coating. I was wrong. I will try it in other recipes like fish and checken. Great recipe.

Peach Cobbler II

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2010
Oh WOW!! This is it. The cobbler I have been looking for. I made it twice for Thanksgiving because I forgot to add the water to the first one, which was cherry. It turned out to be just like peach cobbler IV found on this site. It looked beautiful and I couldn't wait to try it until I remembered I forgot to add the water. Now adding all of this water just didn't seem right. But, I tried it anyway, this time using peaches. This was soooo good. Made a sauce. Next time I will substitute butter for the shortening add a little more sugar. I always flavor my pie filling with cinnamon, nutmeg, and mace. Delicious. P.S. After reading some of thiese reviews, perhaps I forgot the sugar, that's why it wasn't sweet enough for me. I used canned peach pie filling, which is already sweetened. However, I always add sugar to canned pie filling. For some reason I forgot this time. It was Thanksgiving eve. Very busy. Can't wait to try again. Follow-up: Made this last night for my husband's job. I used 3 cans of peaches. I doubled the dough recipe. After I made my main cobbler, which was about 1 and 1/2 times larger than the original recipe, I had enough leftover to make a small cobbler for us. I don't like a lot of cakie dough so I used less dough and a lot of filling. I used butter in the dough before. Not necessary. Did not change the tast a lot. I will add cinnamon and nutmeg to the dough next time, see how that goes. Wonderful recipe.

Broccoli Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
Good recipe. There were no leftovers on Thanksgiving. Because I don't like cream of mushroom soup, I substituted cream of celery soup. Also, I never use processed cheese in a recipe. Used shredded sharp cheddar cheese. Will top with Ritz crackers next time.

Egg Noodles

Reviewed: May 16, 2011
Sorry I didn't get a pictue. It was gone too fast! I didn't change the recipe at all, only the preparatiion. I threw everythng into the food processor like the Barefoot Contessa does her pie dough. I pulsed it about 5 times and than ran it until it became solid, which was about 45 seconds. I floured my hands real good to remove the dough from the food processor. I kneaded it about 5 times and let rest for 10 minutes. I roll all pasta and pastry using a pastry cloth and a cover on my rolling pin. Only a little flour is needed. I rolled it out very thin and used my 5 wheel pasta cutter to make the noodles. This was unbelieveably fast. The noodles were very tender. I used them for chicken and noodles. Thank you Linda. I would give this 10 stars if I could.

Fluffy Biscuits

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2009
These biscuits are perfect. I took J. H. West's advice and used all butter, since she experimented with all shortening, half butter-half shortening, and all butter. I could taste the small amount of sugar. I used a 2 1/2 inch biscuit cutter and only got about 10 biscuits. I'm afraid to double the recipe for fear of compromising the recipe. I would like to use a larger biscuit cutter. So, I'll just have to make the recipe twice. Another reviewer said that when she kneaded the dough more than the recipe called for, the biscuits rose higher. She is right. Great recipe. Thanks Nancy Katherine

Seven Layer Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
I give this five stars. You can add or take from this salad as you like. I added cucumbers and celery. I took the advice of another commenter and layered my dressing as I made the salad, rather than put the dressing on top. However, the first commenter was correct in that the dressing does get all through the salad after awhile. It was delicious, and a meal in itself. I think it would be good with little squares of ham, or pepperoni, or chicken, or turkey. Or any combination of meat. I will definitely make this again. My family loved it. I took it to a birthday party. Katherine

Rolled Dumplings

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2011
5 stars because the ingredients were perfect. However someone (probably my better half) put sugar in my salt bowl. (I use bowls trying to be like the cooks on TV(:). I put a tsp. of sugar instead of a tsp. of salt. I mentioned to my guests that I thought the dumplings needed a little more salt. I had to make more dumplings right away cause I had a lot of broth left over, or gravy. Anyway, I discovered the sugar in my salt bowl. By this time I had already added the sugar to the second batch. I just added a tsp. of salt to the mixture and continued on. These dumplings were outstanding. I mixed the dough in my food processor. I added the shortening to the dry ingredients and let the food processor do the cutting. Then I slowly added the milk until it formed a ball. Quick and easy. I thought this might make the dough tough but it didn't. I didn't even taste my tsp of sugar. Probably because of the salt, the second dumplings puffed up more than the first. They were tender and delicious.

Peach Cobbler V

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2009
I have made this cobbler several times using blueberries, or blackberries, peaches, or apples. WhetherI use canned or fresh pie filling,I always use a lot of brown sugar. I would say about 1 and 1/2 cups. One lady said this recipe needs more fruit. I totally agree. I used two 15 oz. cans of peaches. For seasonings I use 1 tsp. of cinn., 1 tsp. of nutmeg, and 1/2 tsp of mace. I also add another 1/2 a stick of butter to the pie filling. I get rave reviews and people asking for the recipe. I love the way the dough rises to the top. Thanks for this recipe.
