White Chocolate Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2013
These were wonderful! I did follow the suggestion to use 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp baking powder. The cookies were nice and fluffy. Also, I didn't have fresh zest, so I used 2 TBS of jarred orange peel. The cookies have a nice orangey flavor that's not overpowering. These are definitely becoming part of my cookie recipe collection!

Taco Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
This was really good. I did make a few changes. I didn't have sour cream, so I used cheese whiz (the kind in the jar) instead. Also, my salsa was medium heat, so I didn't use the additional spices beyond the taco seasoning. To remedy the issue with the layer of tortillas being too thick, as someone below mentioned, I used 3 whole tortillas and then cut two in half instead of overlapping 6 tortillas per layer. This seemed to work out well. I took this to a potluck and everyone enjoyed it. I'll definitely make this again!

Italian Herb Bread I

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
Very good bread! I didn't have any oregano, so instead of adding that and the basil, I substituted 2 T of Mrs. Dash's Tomato Basil Garlic blend, with the onion and garlic powder. I also used a Romano/Parmesan cheese blend. The loaves were soft and fluffy, with a nice soft crust. Loved it and will try it again as a pizza crust.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2009
This was delicious! My daughter likes cheesy potato soup, so I added 1 cup of shredded cheddar to the flour mixture after the milk was added, and I added half a package of broccoli (gotta get the green in the kids any way you can!). Didn't change anything else; just added those two things. It was so good! This is a definite keeper.

Fresh Tomato Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2009
Delicious! I made this with home-grown orange heirloom tomatoes and half a vidalia onion. I followed the directions as written and even my daughter, who hates tomatoes, liked it! It was a little watery, but you can't really account for the water content of vegetables. I don't think, overall, the wateriness was a detraction. With the mayo, it reminded me of a BLT; I may add some bacon bits to it next time.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2009
Delicious! I used 2 sticks of Smart Balance 50/50 olive oil butter blend, since I don't use shortening. These came out fantastic! I'll definitely make these again.

Spaghetti Sauce II

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
This was really really good! I used this sauce to make meatball sandwiches. I sauteed the onions and garlic, then put all the ingredients into the crock pot with the meat balls, cooked on high for 4 hours and they were great! This is definitely a keeper. I may never buy jarred sauce again!

Irish Barmbrack

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
This was delicious!I was looking for an Irish dessert that didn't have alcohol in it to take to a church function. This was a hit! I did make a few changes, to accommodate the ingredients I had on hand. I used dried blueberries, cranberries and apricots for the fruit, Celestial Seasonings Madagascar Red Vanilla for the tea, and I didn't have lemon marmalade, so I used orange fig preserves. The batter appeared to be a bit dry, and I was a little worried, but the cake itself turned out moist and delicious. Just make sure you sort of push the batter down in the pan and flatten it. I got many requests for the recipe. This is a definite keeper!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2008
Excellent flavor, but they did come out flat. I had to bake them for 15 minutes because at 12, they were just gooey dough. Overall, they're delicious and I'll make them again.

Broccoli Beef I

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2007
I made this as the recipe instructs and it was a little bland. Not too bad, though. Perhaps a bit more ginger or some chili powder for a kick would be good. I used stew meat instead of steak. I'll make this again; my kids liked it.

Cocoa Rum Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2006
These came out a bit dry and I added another TBS of corn syrup. Other than that, they're great! My dad loves these for Christmas.

All American Apple Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2006
I scaled this recipe to feed 12, and made it in a 9x13 glass pan for a potluck. It turned out perfectly and got rave reviews. I even made copies of this recipe for friends who asked for it. This pie recipe is now a standard in our home and turns out perfectly every time.

Cream Cheese Bars II

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2006
These are delicious! A great dish to take to a pot luck if you don't want to deal with a whole cheese cake. I prefer them without the cinnamon sugar topping, but otherwise, this is a keeper!

Cheesy Ham and Hash Brown Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2006
I made this recipe for 120 people for a church dinner. It was very well recieved! I did alter it just a smidge, by doubling the amount of ham and using mushroom soup instead of potato. I served it with warm spicy applesauce and biscuits. I've already gotten requests to make it again next month. Definitely a keeper. Very yummy and good comfort food on a cold night.
