Apple Walnut Salad with Cranberry Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
I'm giving this a 5-star for the taste. Made it for Easter dinner yesterday. Followed other reviews and reduced red onion to 1/4 c. in the dressing and added the rest as thinly sliced in the salad, also reduced oil to 1/2 cup and used canola oil. Used pecans because I didn't have walnuts, added some grapes cut in half and used a pear rather than apple because I wanted to try something different. Salad tasted wonderful, dressing was very good with one exception. It was soooo thick and not at all like the bottled dressings that pour. Any suggestions on how to "thin" this out without changing the taste??

Parmesan Crusted Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2012
Quick, easy and soooo good. I'm making my 2nd batch today but going to omit the parmesan, just roll dough in butter, rise and bake. I'm sure these would also be very good rolled in cinnamon/sugar. Made these to serve with home made hamburger veg. soup and it was the perfect comfort food meal.

Crescent Cake Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2010
I've been making this cookie for years and years, usually at Christmas. Got the recipe many years ago from my sister-in-law who had a great sense of humor. Because of the shape she called these "dog doo" cookies and that's what they've been called in my home since then. I will make the crescent shape, but I also make them round, start with small balls of dough and then slightly flatten them with a fork. The powdered sugar has some deep ridges to stick to. Roll them in powdered sugar when they come out of the oven and then roll again if you want more sugar. I don't use almonds but use pecans instead. I don't grind them fine but I do "chop" them fine. You still get bits of pecan when you bite into the cookie. Overall a wonderful, rich cookie that's excellent with coffee.

Cherry Berries on a Cloud

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2010
In my house we call this "death by cherries" because it's sooooo good you can't stop eating it. I've been making this for 20+ years and it's always a special treat. I've made it for teacher luncheons (2 pans) per meal, showers, holidays and always get rave reviews and requests to make it again and again.

Sour Cream Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
Made these tonight and they turned out moist and tender. I incorporated feedback from others and changed 2 cups. water to 1 cup water, and added 1 cup chix. stock. I didn't cook in slow cooker because of time, but I did season & flour chops before I browned them in pan with oil, transferred to baking dish, then I put onions in pan to saute', added some sliced mushrooms. Mixed up sour cream with remaining flour mixture, added water/chix stock and bouillon. I did taste this and was not pleased, tasted like watered down flour paste, so I added seasonings (salt, pepper, garlic powder a little white wine, worcestershire) and flavor improved. Poured this over chops, added onions & mushrooms, put in 350 oven for 1 hour, reduced temp. to 200 for another hour and they tasted great. I also baked potatoes at the same time. I'm planning on this for a special dinner tomorrow and can't wait to top my potato with some of the sauce. I will make these again.

Quick and Almost-Professional Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2009
I've been making this frosting for years and without a recipe. I add about 1/4 tsp. almond extract and the flavor is wonderful. This is the frosting my mother always made, she never measured, just put 1 stick of butter in a bowl, added a little milk, enough powder sugar to thicken and about 1 tsp. vanilla.

Calico Bean Casserole

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
I have been making this recipe for 30 years. It's always a crowd pleaser and I do serve it as a "side" dish. I use Bush's Original Recipe baked beans and fry my onion just till soft in the bacon grease, then add it to the bean mixture.

Sweet Barbeque Beans

I've made a similar recipe like this for yrs. (30 yrs) and it's called Calico Beans, has pork n beans, butter beans and kidney beans, hamburger & bacon, chopped onions with sauce of ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar and mustard. Always a big hit at pot luck, and a complete meal if you want.

Frosty Strawberry Dessert

Reviewed: May 6, 2007
Easy and quick to make and tastes good too! I used 1 cup extra creamy cool whip in place of the whipped cream. Only thing I would change is to chop up my strawberries a lot more the next time. I "sliced" them like the recipe said but I didn't like biting into a frozen slice of strawberry. Even tho you let this sit out for 10-15 minutes, the berries are still frozen. I'll try cutting them into smaller pieces next time.

Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2007
These are awesome. Just made them for 2nd time and can't stop eating them!! I did add about 1 cup nuts (walnuts this time - pecans last time). They simply melt in your mouth. And of course, you need a big cold glass of milk to wash them down. Yum!!

Seasoned Cornish Hens

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2007
My sister-in-law made these for Easter dinner and they were outstanding. Very moist and flavorful. So good I asked for the recipe and tonight I'm making it but using chix. leg quarters. When we had these for Easter, the cornish hens were cut in half and it solved the cooking problems as far as not being done in 30 minutes. They did cook a little longer but still turned out moist and juicy.

Roasted Red Bell Pepper Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2007
It could be my taste but I didn't like this soup. I just threw out almost a whole pot that I made the other day. I followed suggestion of others, added cooked chix, added small can diced tomatoes, even fresh basil but I just didn't like it. Sorry (:

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2007
I just finished making this soup and it's wonderful!!. Followed suggestions of others and I did saute' the onions & celery, reduced chix bouillion to 1 cube because I didn't have granules, reduced white pepper to 1/2 tsp, used 3 c. water and one can low sodium chix broth to cook potatoes and chopped carrots, added 1/2 cup shredded cheese when I added the white sauce, used about 1/4 cup buttermilk in white sauce just because I had to get rid of it, didn't add any salt. This is the creamiest, most comfort warming soup I've made in a long time. I'm in NE Wisconsin and our temps are mid 20's right now so this will be just right for a cold night.

Hot Chicken Salad II

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2007
Just made this tonight and I can't stop eating it. It is great. I did use suggestions of others, added a few shakes of basil & parsley, also added a shake of garlic salt. Added 1/2 block of low fat cream cheese cut into small pieces and about 3/4 c. shredded cheddar cheese. I didn't have cream of mushroom soup so I used low fat/low sodium cream of celery - taste was great. Also used low fat mayo. Will make this again soon.

Amazing Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2007
WOW!! This was great. Followed suggestion of others and added a little shake of garlic powder and onion powder to the mayo (used regular mayo - but next time I will use low fat). Added about 1 cup grated parma cheese to the bread crumbs. Very delicious and quick to make. Served with boxed wild rice mix.

Snow Flakes

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2006
These are the best spritz cookies I've ever made. Last year I had to throw out 2 batches of spritz because they were horrible. The dough goes thru the cookie press great. I took advice of others and eliminated orange zest, replaced with 1 tsp. vanilla and 1 tsp. almond extract, increased suger to 1 1/2 cups and eliminated the cinnamon. Can't stop eating them.

Healing Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2006
I just made this soup tonight after a long day of Christmas cookie baking. It was quick to throw together. Took advice of others and used chix. broth, water and 1 chix. bouillon cube instead of all chix bouillon. Added chopped celery to onions, cooked till tender. I bought the wrong size tomatoes, got a very large can, twice the size called for, but added it all anyway. Added some sliced smoked polish sausage, carrots, and about 2 Tbls. sugar to take the bite out of the tomatoes. It tasted great on a cold winter nite here in Wisconsin. I bet it will taste even better tomorrow after flavors have time to mingle.

Classic Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2005
Wonderful!!! I made this last nite and didn't eat one till this morning. What a wonderful treat with my coffee. I substituted applesauce for oil, added a couple dashes of cinnamon and allspice, added chopped dates along with the raisins, and next time I make these I'm going to add a few chopped nuts just for some extra "chew" texture. These taste just like what you would get from the bakery.
