Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: May 7, 2006
Just gone done making this for my husband who requested french toast for breakfest. I thought it turned out pretty good, to be honest, I dont have french toast that often enough to know what 'normal' french toast would taste like. I added a bit more white sugar and some nutmeg instead of cinnamon and almond extract instead of vanilla. Flavor wise, I thought it was terrific. Reminded me of holiday time, definetly a different flavor than the traditional cinnamon/vanilla, which I tend to use a lot in everyday baking. The texture, meanwhile, was spongy. Not in a bad way. I used some fresh wheat bread for him, and some day-old slices of french bread for me, which I thought worked better since it sopped up more of the bread. Not bad at all. THanks.

Tasty Spinach Treats

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2006
These were really quite easy and were well received my by guests. I too, made the filling the morning of my party and found it set up easier chilled. I made two batches of these....and using the GRANDS or flaky type of biscuits creates a much better "crust" for these treats. Dont use the doughy biscuits, the result is just like a bread under the filling. Definetly a flaky crust tastes and feels more upscale. I seperated the biscuits into fourths and found they fit just fine in the mini-muffin pan. I also brushed a little butter on the tops of the crust before adding the filling. Thanks for the recipe...usually I am the one thinking "how did they make such a neat little appetizer" was too easy!

Cathy's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2006
Fairly good and not too moist or sticky at all. Cosistency was just right. I used two standard throw-away loaf pans that I bought at the store and sprinkled some white sugar on top before baking. Yumm-o! I love recipes where you already have all of the ingredients on hand. Thanks.

Yummy Candied Yams

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2006
These were outstanding. I must have used four really big yams, because it looked like there was hardly any water in the saucepan, so I added more and ended up with a lot of the syrupy stuff at the end, but thats was alright....I just added some more cubed yams and cooked them again. I also used half brown sugar and half white sugar and mixed the yams at the end with a hand mixture for a smoother consistency. Maybe I am just partial to butter and sugar...but these were terrific and easy to make. Thanks!!

Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2006
I made this recipe to take to a church pot luck and it turned out pretty good and was easy. I used ground turkey instead and fried it up with one greated carrot and some chopped onion. (I wondered WHY this recipe didnt include onion?). I also used a can of peas and carrots, although next time I will use some frozen peas and carrots, since the color of the canned vegetables was a dull grayish color. ICK. I thought using 2 cans of condensed milk was a bit much, but it wasnt THAT soupy. Next time, I will probably use a little more meat in the recipe anyways. I also added some milk and shredded cheese to the potato mixture before adding it on top. Used an extra potato just in case, would rather have too much than not enough. Will probably half this recipe next time for my hubby and I, and might use instant potatoes if in a hurry. This is a great recipe to make early in the day when you have time, then just pop in the oven later in the day when the usual hassles start. Thanks for the recipe!

Barbequed Hamburgers

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2006
This recipe was pretty good and easy and it turned out a different kind of hamburger, which is good, since I tend to make hamburgers alot. I used ground turkey and didnt have any evap. milk, so substitued regular milk instead. I was afraid it would be too soupy to make any patties, but the meat just absorbed it. They took no time on the stove and the sauce tastes kind of like a bbq sauce. I liked that since it wasnt your typical GLOB ON BBQ sauce taste from a bottle. I was making regular hamburgers, so used the excess sauce (there is excess!) in my corn and carrots. Kind of made a total BBQ style dinner.

Hearty Ham Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2006
This recipe was pretty good....not terrific but okay. Things I did different was I used both frozen corn and peas, since if its not green, my mind doesnt count it as being a "vegetable", thus not being an "all-in-one" meal. I also added a lot of garlic powder and microwaved the potatoes in a plastic zip lock bag for about 7 minutes so they would be semi-hard, yet soften in the oven. Also combined some bread crumbs to the cheese and broiled those on top for the last 3 minutes. Pretty good, crunchy, and added to the presentation. This came out not goopy or like my idea of a traditional casserole. I would have liked it better if it was one of those combine everything and cook in one dish recipes. I will probably try another leftover ham casserole recipe next time I have leftover ham.

Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2006
I made this for a dinner party and just bought a basic Tyson spiral cut ham (1.79/lb) from the grocery store. I found this recipe, and didnt want to make a 3rd trip to the store, so like many others I used brown sugar instead of the syrup and put the sauce on low on the stove, then turned off and let the oven heat keep the sauce warm while the ham cooked and I basted. I also covered the ham with foil to keep it from drying out and the whole thing turned out really good. Of course, how could brown sugar, butter, and honey not be good? Thanks for the easy and delicious recipe.

Quick and Easy Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2005
This is a simple recipe with simple ingredients that you can make last minute. I used only two chicken breast, but cut them into strips and made the amount of sauce that the recipe states and it came out fine. The taste is almost like a sweet and sour chicken. I also added a celery to the onion. I think you can add almost anything based on what you have in your fridge. Next time I might try a green onion and a few mushrooms if I have them on hand. Easy and good, thank you!
