Country Quiche

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2006
I doubled this recipe and put it in 2 deep dish pie shells that I baked for about 8 minutes at 400 degrees, although I think regular depth would work too. I used 2 cups of cheddar cheese for the double recipe, and about 8 oz. of chopped brocolli. I also used onion powder instead of onion, because I was low on time. With the brocolli, 4 pieces of bacon was plenty per quiche. Unless you really like the herbs, they were not necessary. It's a good basic recipe that I will use again.

Blueberry Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2007
I just baked this recipe, and it's excellent. I made a few minor changes: no lemon juice or zest (I didn't have either). I added 1 tbs. of water instead. I added 2 tbs. of cornstarch to the mixture of dry ingredients for the filling. I think the consistency will be fine, once it cools. Since I had no lemon juice, I added a pinch of salt to the filling. Next time I'll probably try adding a little lemon juice , if I have some. I used 2 pints of fresh berries, which amounted to about 4 and 1/2 cups. This filled a deep pie plate. This is definitely a keeper. Not only is it excellent, it's easy!

Cherry Crumble

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2007
I just tried this with great results. I made the following alterations: I used a refrigerated pie crust for the bottom crust in a 9inch pie plate. I used two cans of cherry filling (one lite and one no sugar). For the crumble, I used whole wheat pastry flour and put all of it on top of the cherries. Baked for about the recommended amount of time. It's very good!

No Fail Pound Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2008
I have made a variant of this recipe and that is what my rating is based on. I apologize to anyone who prefers that we not rate/review recipes that we've tweaked, but this is too good not to share. Here's what I used: 1 white cake mix with pudding 1 c. flour 1/2c. butter 1/2c. margarine 1 c. sugar 5 eggs 8 oz. vanilla yogurt (not sugar free or fat free) 1/2c. milk NO WATER Mix these ingredients in the manner and order included in the recipe. This is absolutely exquisite. Hope it works well for you!

Nostalgic Apple Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2005
OK, I give this three stars with a couple of reservations. I've only tried it once, but here are my comments: I detected a slight to moderate aftertaste that was more evident when the pie was hot. I recommend that you make sure your splenda mixture is very well distributed, I think this will help with the aftertaste. Also, the addition of a bit of lemon juice and/or a small amount of butter under the top crust might help. I would add 2-4 tablespoons of apple juice or water if the apples are not very juicy. If all else fails, I was able to mask the aftertaste with vanilla ice cream :)

Adam's Apple Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2012
I would say it's really 4.5 stars. I used half brown sugar and butter rather than oil. No electric mixer is necessary. I melted the butter, stirred in sugar, let it cool a minute then stirred in eggs and dry ingredients, followed by apples. It's a breeze to make with the pre-sliced apples from the produce section. An hour was way too long for mine to bake. Probably 40 min. at the max. Might benefit from a glaze or streusel.

Easy Grilled Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2010
This is an excellent basic recipe. I didn't have the ginger, so I left it out. I added two tsp. of brown sugar, and, as someone else suggested, I added a dash or two of garlic powder. I also just cut the liquid ingredients in half, because I didn't need a full recipe. The marinade could be made with pineapple juice and then the brown sugar might not be needed. Would be excellent to brush on skewered vegetables.

Wednesday Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2009
I am hoping to give these a new identity as a cobbler crust. I baked about 18 of them and they are a disappointment. They're little sweet buttermilk biscuit-like things. Don't go there. It's a waste of time and ingredients!

Banana Split Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2008
After reading reviews, I decided to bake this batter in my mini-bundt pan. I left out the nuts and cloves, because I didn't have either one. These came out lovely. I sprinkled the tops with butterscotch chips before baking, so they have a butterscotch "crust" in the bottom when you invert the pan. I see this recipe as having great potential for my creative muse.

Favorite Banana Blueberry Quick Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2012
This is good and easy. I used oil instead of shortening and didn't use my electric mixer. I used 1 c. blueberries b/c they needed to be used. Added a bit of cinnamon and vanilla, and used half brown sugar. Mine took a about 65 or 70 minutes to bake through.

Sunshine S'more Cupcakes

Reviewed: May 20, 2012
These were mediocre. I followed the recipe, except I used whole large marshmallows on top and melted them in the oven for a few seconds, to avoid the marshmallow creme mess. This was successful. I also used about 1 TBS. milk choc. chips per cupcake instead of kisses, because that's what I had on hand. I would recommend adding a tsp. vanilla to the cupcake batter. The one other thing that I think might have improved mine would have been to use the kisses, as that would have given a nice chunk of chocolate. The chocolate was the best thing about them. Just make regular smores....

Lower Fat Banana Bread II

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2008
This is pretty darn good! I used 1/2 c. vanilla yogurt in place of the applesauce. I also cut the sugar to 1/2 C. as others have recommended and used 3/4 c. whole wheat flour, with the remainder being all purpose flour. Do not judge this recipe by its taste or texture straight out of the oven. It improves as it cools, and fooled several people today at church who would never have known it was low fat if I hadn't told them. I'd call it a winner!

Linda's Monster Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2006
This is really a 4.5 star recipe for me. I have made these twice. Both times I halved the recipe and substituted peanut butter for the margarine. The first time I added some extra m and m's, but it was hard to get them all worked into the dough. I had some left at the bottom of the bowl. The dough is very thick. I "worked-in" my candies and chips this second time. I also used white choc. chips this time, but prefer the regular semi-sweet, maybe because they go better with peanut butter. Definitely take these out before they brown if you like chewy cookies. I shaped my cookies to be slightly larger than golf balls, and gently pressed them down. I get about 30 out of half the recipe making them this size.

Chocolate - Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2013
If you use regular, rather than quick-cooking oats, you will not get the proper consistency for the cookies to be dry and not runny.

Butter Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2013
Outstanding! I changed nothing. However, depending on your oven, it can take less than 50 minutes to bake. I would start checking at 35 or so, with my old oven that runs hot. I baked it in an oval casserole that is slightly larger than a 9-in. round, which could account for the shorter baking time. Again, outstanding just like it is!!

Easy Baked Tilapia

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2008
Not so great in my opinion. I think the fish would benefit from being baked in an open container. The water from the frozen veggies didn't help it at all.

Blueberry Cream Cheese Pound Cake I

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2005
I found this recipe to be quite satisfying. The cake did not rise very much, but that may be due to the fact that I used a "pudding-in-the-mix" golden vanilla cake mix. I used the amount of blueberries called for, and I dusted them in two tablespoons of flour before folding into the batter. They were beautifully suspended in the cake. I believe the cream cheese masked the cake mix taste, and I found the texture of the cake to be much like that of a scratch-made pound cake! I agree that some combination of increased baking temp and time are necessary. Next time I will try it starting at 350degrees. Enjoy!

Crunchy Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2012
Very, very good. It was my goal to make these dairy-free for a colleague. I used 1/2 c. peanut butter in the swirl and left out the cream cheese. Only four stars because it could use more peanut butter, but it's excellent and versatile. Add chocolate or pb chips, or reese's pieces....or m and m's or......

Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2012
Easy and delicious - and from scratch, too! My daughter calls these "poor" cookies, because, as a poor college student she could still afford to make them. I have made them many, many times. Tonight I used brown sugar and added chocolate chips. Just great!

Maple Walnut Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2011
This is a good recipe. It's awesome for when you don't want to drag out the mixer. I used oil instead of margarine or butter, and water for the milk, because I have a colleague who can eat not dairy. I added cinnamon, but it could use some additional spices. I also added about 2/3 c. of peanut butter chips. Got good reviews at school. Don't overbeat:)
