Blackberry Syrup

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2014
Just made this with some berries I had in the freezer that were too tart for a cobbler; skipped the pectin. I used it in a gin martini with a lemon twist. Awesome! I plan to use it as a substitute for Grenadine, too. It tastes better and I'll avoid the high fructose corn syrup.

Ranch Dressing II

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2013
Love this dressing. I have to make it every time the guys come over. For a dip, I reverse the amounts of mayonnaise and sour cream i.e. one cup of sour cream and a half cup of mayonnaise. Also, I use 1/2 teaspoons of salt and pepper. This makes a great dressing for pasta salad. Nobody would ever want to go buy the bottled goo ever again after trying this ranch dressing.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2013
Y'know, all those folks that claimed it was too garlicky or too peppery or too something or, of all things, bland, must be using old, stale spices. I don't want FLOUR of any sort in my seasoning mix, either. This was a great blend and it is fun to tweak it. I like to substitute jalapeno powder or cayenne pepper for the paprika. I can do it salt-free for Mom, too.

Poor Man's Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2013
Great stuff. I can't have wheat, so I used potato starch in place of the flour. It did not fluff as much as it should have, but it made a rich, velvety frosting, very satisfying. Next time, I will try corn starch, tapioca starch, or arrowroot.

Gluten-Free Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2013
Followed the recipe except, per other reviewers' recommendations, I soaked Bob's brown rice flour in the milk. No grittiness!!!! Also, I substituted 1/3 cup of applesauce and 1/3 cup of butter for the mayonnaise. I creamed the butter, applesauce, and sugar thoroughly. Then I beat each egg in for a minute, one at a time. I added 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg, 1/4 teaspoon of ground cloves, and 1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger to the dry ingredients to make a spice cake. After everything was in the bowl, I let the mixer beat the batter for 10 minutes, as suggested by other reviewers. I divided the batter between two mini-Bundt pans. It took 35 minutes for them to bake. After they were cool, I iced one cake with cinnamon coffee vanilla frosting, a special request. The cake was light and wonderful, a REAL CAKE. The guys, who have had many of my wheat-based cakes, said that this one was the best cake I ever made, wheat or wheat free. You can't get a better complement than that. Thanks for posting the recipe.

Cream of Sweet Potato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2013
Super easy, amazingly elegant. I microwaved the sweet potatoes. I am glad I did not include the sugar. The little touch of cayenne gave it an intriguing touch without making it overtly spicy. I will definitely make this again as directed, but I want to experiment with ginger and curry, too.

Pasta e Fagioli a la Chez Ivano

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2013
Tastes like spaghetti sauce, good spaghetti sauce. I like the huge amount of garlic, but the rule regarding garlic around here is, "Never enough." If I make it again, I will probably add some more veggies like peppers and mushrooms. It will almost certainly become another good spaghetti soup.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2013
Wheatless version alert: These turned out very good. I substituted 1/4 cup of soy flour and 1/4 cup of Bob's Red Mill All Purpose Gluten Free flour. The one who resists dessert and anything gluten free went for seconds. ;-)

Gluten-Free Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2013
Excellent, but way too sweet. After reducing the sugar to one tablespoon, it was perfect for me.

Creamy Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2012
This is the best Mac'n'cheese recipe I have had yet. The only way it could be creamier is if you used the Velveeta plasticheese, and then it would not taste good. I leave out the mustard because, to me, macaroni and cheese should be mellow, not "zingy."

Red Pepper Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2012
I love this easy dressing. It is wonderful on tomatoes or greens alone. I usually use more salt and pepper. For a little change, sometimes I add a dash of Worcestershire or a clove of garlic. It blends up zippy quick with my electric hand mixer. I think next time I roast garlic, I will try it in this recipe. I am on a sugar free diet, so I skip the honey completely or substitute a packet of stevia. Update: Can't find any good red bell peppers around here right now. I tried it with roasted red peppers out of a jar, and it was still delicious.

Creamy Vanilla Pudding

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2012
I have made this more often than I can count. The method for adding the egg yolks makes it super easy to make impulsively. I am on a low sugar and wheat free diet, so this has been very helpful and satisfying. It great on its own as a comforting dessert, warm or cold. It is so versatile that I have used it as a quickie ice cream and frosting substitute, too. It makes a nice sauce for bread pudding. Add an extra tablespoon or so of corn starch and refrigerate it to make wonderful pie filling, too. I have made lemon, lime, almond and chocolate versions. I can go completely sugar free with five packets of stevia, or, my preference, two tablespoons of sugar, and two packets of stevia. Thanks so much, Jeanne Bullard.

Two Ingredient Pumpkin Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2011
No milk? No eggs? No problem! It is great as is, moist and great tasting, whether I use a spice cake mix or yellow cake mix. I will sometimes add 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg, 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger, and 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves so that it tastes like pumpkin pie. Yeah, it is impossible to spread it perfectly evenly, so it is not pretty, but that will not matter if you top it with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

Trail Blazer Barbecue Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2011
Great sauce. I plan to tweak it a bit, but this is a really good start. It's not too sweet, not too vinegary, not too ketchupy, not too mustardy.

Seven Grain Bread I

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
This came out of our old bread machine beautiful the first time, but every time afterwards we had the goofy top. However, the big bubble is a treat. Try gently toasting it. I make it often now, substituting whole wheat flour for one cup of white and it never lasts long around here. Thanks for the great recipe.

Spicy Indian Dahl

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
I would have rated this three or so when I first made it as the lackluster flavor did not justify the effort. So, we only ate a little and put the rest in the refrigerator. A couple of days later, I heated it up for a quick meal, planning to add some stuff to spice it up. Not needed! Wow, what a difference! Sitting for a while really brought out the promised spicy, wonderful flavors. Now I make it in advance and it is a favorite dish.

Olive Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
Wow, adapted this to my bread machine and it is good. Really great toasted with mozzarella cheese. YUM! I also made it with whole wheat flour (with added vital wheat gluten) in the machine with great results. BTW, it worked best for my bread machine when I calculated for 10 servings, squeezed the olives out thoroughly and tossed them with the dry ingredients, and used 1 3/8 cups of water.

Cheese Sauce Over Cauliflower

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
I omitted the cauliflower ;-) Good basic sauce. Try adding an ounce or so of bleu cheese for a zingy change. YUM!
