German Apple Pancake

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2014
This was delicious. I made only two changes to the ingredients themselves: I used 3 1/2 apples, peeled & sliced, instead of just the 1, and I used 1/4 cup vanilla/sugar in place of the regular sugar when sprinkling on the apples. I have a real "argument" with the number of people this is supposed to serve. Really - 4 people??? My husband & I polished this off for supper - just the two of us. But I guess that says more about my husband & me than it does about the recipe. Again - wonderful recipe! Delicious & perfect!

Unstuffed Cabbage Roll

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2014
My husband and I absolutely love this recipe. I have made it twice now in as many weeks; it's just impossible to get tired of it. When taste-testing it, I decided to add several Tbsp. of brown sugar to counteract the tomatoes, one shredded carrot (just because), and used 3 cans of tomatoes in place of the water/tomato sauce (because I didn't have any sauce). I left my chunks of cabbage a little larger than shown in the photo so, obviously, had to cook it a bit longer. It is so easy to put together and tastes so good...I'm delighted to add this new recipe to my list of "Favorites."

King Ranch Chicken Casserole III

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2013
I followed the recipe exactly, except I halved it & I omitted the garlic salt entirely. I didn't have a problem with the casserole being too soupy or too soggy. It looked great. My problem was that it was so salty neither my husband or I could eat more than a few bites. Since no one else here seems to have had that particular complaint, I wonder if the chicken broth I used was abnormally salty. There would have been enough leftovers for another meal, but we ended up throwing them away since we couldn't eat it the first time. I would like to try making it again, but I will use salt-free or salt-reduced ingredient next time.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2013
I followed the recipe exactly except I did not add any water. It's a good thing I didn't because there was a lot of juice in the bottom of the pan after baking. This desert was entirely too sweet for our liking. In fact neither my husband or I finished our serving and we threw the rest of the desert out. There may be nothing wrong with the recipe. It's just our personal taste. We prefer my old recipe for apple crisp and I will stick to that in the future. Sometimes new is not always better.

Date Nut Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2013
This is now my "Go-to" recipe for Date Nut Bread. It is moist, dense & so flavorful. The loaves baked beautifully, making perfect little loaves with a nice dome. The loaves were firm and sliced nicely even while still warm. I was going to add my rating yesterday after I had my first taste, but I'm glad I waited a day. Although the bread is very good fresh from the oven, it is even better waiting until the next day to eat it. Yesterday I thought maybe it needed something - cinnamon? Nutmeg? But, today, I have second thoughts. It doesn't need a thing - It is that good. I made one large loaf and two mini loaves. 35 minutes baking time @350 degrees was perfect for the mini loaves and 70 minutes was perfect for the large loaf, covering it with foil during the last 30 minutes. My only complaint is the recipe should be revised to direct adding the soda water that the dates have been soaking in. I had originally copied the recipe down on a card and when it came to assembling the ingredients, I had to go back to the computer to find the recipe to see what to do about the water.

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
I halved the recipe but had to add more powdered sugar...a lot more! It never did get fluffy and when cut, the icing just dripped off the cake. I tried chilling the icing before putting it on the cake, but it didn't help much. I'm an experienced baker, so I'm not sure what went wrong. The taste was fine. It wasn't the best Cream Cheese Frosting I've ever had, but it was good.

Rhubarb Crunch

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2007
I have been making rhubarb crunch since I was a child (I'm now 59!) I have occasionally tried other recipes, but I always come back to this one. It was a favorite with friends and family in the US and now I'm asked for the recipe in England. The ingredients can be found anywhere and it's easy to make.

Vegetable Pizza I

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2006
I have used this recipe often for at least 10-15 years. It is the best!! I live in England (for the moment) and everyone I've served it to here absolutely raves about it as well. It is my favorite appetizer but works well as a lunch item as well. Crust gets soft if left overnight but we've only had leftovers once and that was because of a snowstorm in Colorado - our party guests couldn't get to our house.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2005
These have been out of my oven for ten minutes and there are only four left! I added chopped walnuts to half of the batter and didn't add the crumb topping. Absolutely yummy! The recipe made 12 good-sized muffins. Next time I'll add the crumb topping but will not fill the muffin tins as full. This recipe is a keeper! Thanks Lisa!

I have been making this cake for years and it always turns out perfect and absolutely delicious. I have used cheap rum and the expensive stuff - still a great cake!
