Warm Apple Buttermilk Custard Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
This was very good. I didn't do the crumble topping however, still delicious though. Instead we drizzled with a little caramel.

Dukkah

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2009
Did not find this addictive at all, nobody did, and we love different, interesting food. It was the only thing that didnt get eaten up at a party full of tipsy hungry people. Sorry.

Jiffy Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2008
These are so good, however I did add some more butter to the mix as it seemed a little dry. Im so glad I have a way to make cinnamon buns now since I hate messing with yeast. Im far to impatient.

Slow-Cooked German Short Ribs

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2008
This was a good recipe but I didnt find them saucy enough. Next time I will 1 & 1/2 the sauce mixture. I had alot of ribs sitting on top getting all dried out which was disapointing but the ones who got to swim in the sauce all day were great. I did stir them a few times but didnt want my crock pot to lose to much heat so I had to resist messing with them to much. I used white wine as well, I dont think it would make any real difference. Will make again.

German-Style Beet Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2007
This started out to be just a way to use up some beets, after finding it I buy them all the time. I add fresh orange segments and it is the greatest thing around.

The Captain's Famous Jambalaya

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2007
Since I dont know what the heck file powder is I didnt use it but I guess it didnt really need it because it was very tasty. I also used canned tomatoes and chicken broth. It was great, The only other change I made was to place the snapper filets on the top at the end to sort of poach it since I was afraid it would over cook.

4H Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2007
I love banana bread and with a cup and a half of bananas instead of 1 cup it was so good. I also used pecans. YUM.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2007
This was pretty good, a very healthy and low fat salad. I will make it again, I used canned corn since I find it sweeter and better tasting.

Fig and Olive Tapenade

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2007
This was tasty, I made it 2 days before eating it to let the flavors mingle, and that they did. The only thing I would change was the rosemary. I used dried and it never did soften up. A bit twiggy. Next time I wont be so lazy and go outside to pick my own and chop it up finely. I will also try it with goats cheese for some extra zip. Great though.

Chicken Tequila Fettuccini

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
I didnt love this, I probably wont make it again, but I did use 1/2 & 1/2 so maybe that was the problem. I found it bland, even before the pasta was added, then it became really bland, I had to add more of tequila, lime juice, salt, and I found it needed something so I added honey to add another dimension. That helped the sauce, but again, when the pasta was added it really didnt taste like much. Bummer, I had high hopes. Maybe Im just a tough critic, I havent found many recipes worth 5 stars on this site. Im still looking though! Sorry!

Citrus Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2007
This was a pretty good cheesecake, I unfortunatley served it the same day I baked it, it was so much better the next day. I had to cook it a bit longer than instructed and used 1/2 marmalade and 1/2 mango jelly since Im not a big marmalade fan. Nice and easy, I will make it again for sure.

Italian Cream Cake II

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2006
First off, this cake was great! I changed things up a bit, it may be something you might want to consider. The first thing I did differently was instead of round pans I used a 9X13 slab. It was easier to transport and cut, I was able to get 16 very generous pieces, you could get more if you cut smaller, next time I will. Since this was following Christmas dinner I wanted to lighten things up a little (I dont mean calories here) So I used the cream cheese frosting in the middle, and a thin layer on top (I cut the whole slab in 1/2), and then frosted the whole outside with sweetened whip cream. I think if I frosted the whole thing with the cream cheese it would have been to much for our already stuffed bellies. You will have a bit of leftover creamcheese icing, ice some cookies or something. It was a really good cake, the only reason why I didnt give it 5 stars was because it was a little denser than I would have liked but I did cut the cake in 1/2 while it was still warm so that may have caused a little deflation so I will never know if it was supposed to be like that or if it was my own fault. Probably the latter. It was pretty tasty though.

Penne and Vodka Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2006
This was so good! I 1 and a 1/2'd the recipe, used 18% cream instead of heavy cream and sauted onion and garlic with the pancetta. Everyone loved it, it was very rich, I couldnt imagine how it would have been with the full cream. Tasty Im guessing but I thought it was going to be fattening enough! Next time Im going to use half and half (10%)and see how that is. I also added chili flakes and prawns and used Ragu original like someone here suggested because I imagined plain tomato sauce to be bland. I guess I changed a fair bit but it still gets 5 stars.

Soft and Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2006
These are so good! I wont bake any other kind from now on. I whipped the batter to make to fluff them up a bit and added 3/4 cup of sweetened coconut just because I love it. They are going to make me fat!

Amish Friendship Bread I

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2006
After 10 days of babying my starter I couldnt have been more let down. I expected alot better. It tasted like any other boring ol' loaf, I added apples and thank god I did. Its pretty bland, I thought the starter would add an interesting flavor but nope. The texture is course, maybe it was me but it gave no real mixing instructions. I will try the pudding recipes in hope for better results since Im stuck with all this leftover batter. I dont want to give it away along with a recipe that I didnt like.
