Hamburger Quiche

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2006
We enjoyed this dish very much! Hearty and savory. I took the time to grate my own potatoes for the crust and fry up my own (turkey) bacon. We'll be making it again!

Chocolate Layered Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2006
I made this twice over Thanksgiving week, and it got raves from everyone. I did adapt it slightly with some of the modifications suggested by others: 1 and 1/3 cup milk in the pudding, Heath bits sprinkled over the cream cheese layer and on top of the pie. Plus a few more pecans in the crust than were called for. I give it four stars only because I prefer dense, heavier desserts, and this is definitely on the fluffy side with all the whipped topping. But that's clearly only a matter of my personal preference, since my friends all asked for the recipe!

Satiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2007
This is a scrumptious cake topping, but I have to agree with one of the other reviewers--it's not what I was thinking of when I searched for "glaze". It's really almost too thick to pour, and I ended up using a knife to help spread it over my cake.

Easy Grape Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2007
We made this to take to another couple's house last night, and everyone gave it two thumbs up. It was perfect for a night when we all wanted something sweet, but light. Like another reviewer, I added a few mandarin organges. I also used sliced instead of slivered almonds so that we got a little bit of the nut-skin and its yummy flavor, and I taosted them in the oven for 7 minutes at 250 F. Our friends said that the almonds "made" the dish.

Butter Brickle Frozen Delight

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2007
This went over quite well when we had company last night. Might be a tad too sweet for some palates, but no one at my house left much on his/her plate! Note: I froze this for 4+ hours, and it still wasn't set as much as it should have been. I'll definitely make it a day ahead next time.

Ruby Apple Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2008
This was certainly lovely to look at, but it's not as sweet as the gelatin salads I enjoy most. I wasn't crazy about the cinnamon flavor, and all of the crunchy textures--apples, celery, nuts--weren't my favorite either. But I did receive several compliments when I took this to Thanksgiving dinner, so maybe it was just me. Then again, I had plenty left over, so maybe it wasn't.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
My only problem with this (and the recipe's merits far outweigh it) was being fooled by the "clean toothpaste" check. In other words, my toothpick, inserted in multiple places in the loaf, came out clean loooong before the bread was done. But once it finally did get done, it was delish!

Butterscotch Sauce II

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
Yum! Just beware: if you are looking for a sauce that is thick and syrupy, this isn't it. It's quite liquidy.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
I'm not a peanut-butter cookie fan, but these were quite good. And my husband loved them. Best eaten a day or so after they are baked, in my estimation. (I used half a cup of whole wheat flour, just because I try to sneak it in whenever possible.) Next time I'd try old-fashioned oats instead of quickies.

Candy Cane Fudge

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
I was somewhat skeptical, but this was very nice! My teenage (boy) cousins loved it and went out of their way to tell me so (which was impressive, I thought). Unfortunately, I wasn't able to achieve the pretty swirls, but some extra crushed candy saved the day.

A Hearty Green Bean and Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
I tried this because I have had it with the traditional green bean casserole. This was a nice alternative. I used reduced sodium cream of chicken soup instead of mushroom. My grandfather couldn't say enough about this.

Pretzel Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
I absolutely love this. It's very rich, and most people at the luncheon where I served it could only handle one small serving. But they all raved about it.
