Bread Pudding I

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2013
I used hot dog buns. I might try doubling the bread amount next time as the end product was only about 1/2" thick. The bread did rise quite a bit in the oven, however, so I might also have a big mess on my hands! I didn't try the lemon sauce -- well, actually, I tried to make it using the microwave and it never thickened up so I dumped it.

Tater-Dipped Eggplant

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2012
This would have gotten five stars, but I did have to cook it a lot longer than 20 minutes and I had to use an extra egg. Otherwise: fantastic!!! I sliced the eggplant more like 1/2" thick, so I had about five slices leftover that I couldn't fit on the pan (saving those for later!). I used the cheap instant mashed potatoes that are flavored, in buttery homestyle flavor, and added 1/4 t. garlic. The eggplant was cooked until the slices were brown and the potato flakes were crispy. Not the least bit soggy and, actually, only a hint of the eggplant flavor given the thinness of the slices. Next time I might try slicing the eggplant a little thicker but the thinness is great for people who don't necessarily love eggplant as much as others.

Sweet Potato and Apple Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2012
I used three sweet potatoes and excluded the lemon as suggested by others. I almost wish I'd included the lemon just to know whether that might add a little extra to the soup as otherwise the soup tends to be a little on the bland side. However ours could have been bland from the extra sweet potato, and salt and pepper helped bring out the flavors a lot. I used feta as the garnish and would have preferred something different, such as perhaps grated parmesan or a dollop of sour cream.

Homemade Noodles

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2012
I quadrupled the recipe, using four eggs and a little over three cups of flour, added gradually. I overworked my dough (they were a little chewy, and it wasn't because they were al dente or overcooked) but otherwise the noodles turned out great.

Makes a full cookie sheet-full. Cook until they turn brown as otherwise they aren't crunchy.

Sausage Crescent Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
I found these to be a little "one note." I did not add poppy seeds, however. Not sure if that would make a difference.

Low-Fat Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2011
I used whole wheat flour, fresh pumpkin and 2 eggs. I made two batches, one as bread and the other as muffins. For the bread, I made the mistake of putting all of the batter in a meatloaf/bread pan so it overflowed while cooking! It took about twice as long to cook, too! Oh well, it otherwise turned out good. For the muffins, I got 2 1/2 dozen full-size muffins out of one batch. They took about 17 min. to cook per dozen. In terms of the overall taste/texture, mine turned out very dense, likely moreso than the original recipe because I used whole wheat flour. Also, the pumpkin flavor (and all the related spices of pumpkin pie) were very subtle. I would have preferred a stronger pumpkin taste. Otherwise, I'm happy with this recipe!

Cool Whipped Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
Points for being an easy recipe, but this tasted odd to me. Be aware that if you substitute evaporated milk for regular milk, as someone suggested, the frosting will have a definitely peach undertone in terms of color.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2011
I would agree that these are about the best chocolate chip cookies I've run across. Take the cookies out at 10-12 minutes. They won't be brown at that point, but I kept one pan in until they had that golden look I'm used to and those turned out a little crunchy. This recipe makes A LOT if you're using the teaspoon/knife method to put them on the pan. One batch made over five dozen cookies. Thank you so much for sharing, Dora!

Fresh Peach Dessert

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
This is a great end-of-summer recipe -- along with peaches being in season this time of year, we had marshmallows and graham crackers left over from a Labor Day camping trip! Thus, instead of mini marshmallows I used 5 c. of the regular size. Also, I had Redi-whip left over from a party so I used 7 c. of that instead of the cream and sugar. I added about 6 iced oatmeal cookies with the graham cracker mixture for added flavor. I used 6 white peaches, diced, and made these in muffin tins. I made a dozen individual servings in muffin tins, then had enough left over to fill a pie dish as well -- and still had about three cups of peaches left for snacking! I filled each muffin tin with about 1 T. graham cracker mixture, 1 T. whipped mixture, 1 1/2 T. peaches, 1 T. whipped mixture and a sprinkle of graham cracker mixture on top. The dessert holds up fairly well in the muffin tins and doesn't require spoons if you eat carefully.

Grilled Zucchini Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2011
I have made these about five times this summer! I skip the butter and pizza sauce. Instead, I grill one side, then flip them over and top the cooked side with bacon bits, diced well drained tomatoes and cheese and cook until the cheese is melted, the underside is cooked and the zucchini is soft (but not mushy). These reheat great. They're VERY filling!

Slow Cooker Latin Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2011
This was okay. I'll probably make it again just for some variety. I used chicken tenders. I really wish I HADN'T added corn. The corn overpowers this dish.
