Hawaiian Dessert

Reviewed: May 21, 2008
I made this recipe as written for my Gourmet groups Hawaiian luncheon. It was a perfect ending to our meal, light not overly sweet and everyone liked it. I was a little worried about the toasted coconut on top but everyone agreed, even those who do not like coconut that it added just a little extra crunch and tasted good. I made the cake and filling the night before and stored in fridge. I used 2 Pyrex portables 13 by 9 pans that have the plastic covers so they could be stacked on top of each other. I made the whipped cream the next morning and spread it on the cakes. It really makes the dessert special and I would not use a substitute. Great recipe to feed 24 people with not a lot of work and good on the budget! Thanks Eunice!

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2007
This recipe makes alot of batter! I maxed out my stand mixer bowl before adding dry ingredients, had to switch to a larger bowl. The banana bread was very good, moist but not soggy and the cinnamon was just the right touch! My husband took some to work and everyone liked it. I just took my last loaf out of the freezer and it does freeze well. I have six bananas ripening right now so I can make another batch to take to book club in a couple weeks. I have always used my grandmas recipe but this is so much better!

Luscious Slush Punch

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2003
I decreased sugar to 1 2/3 cups, used 30 oz. pineapple juice (5- 6 oz. cans)and increased lemon juice to 1 cup and used wild strawberry jello as previously suggested. Great but not too sweet and pineapple did not overpower other flavors. Received many requests for recipe.

Butterscotch Brownies I

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2001
Great recipe! It is easy to make with ingredients usually on hand. They even cut well and stay looking nice for cookie platters.

Applesauce Squares

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2001
This recipe has some mysteries. One egg is listed in ingredients but in instruction it says eggs (plural) I used 1 and it was crumbly so maybe 2? Also this is a cookie recipe? It calls for a 8 inch sq. pan and baking time took 50 minutes instead of thirty. Maybe it was supposed to be a 9x 13 pan for cookie squares and not cake squares. Probably will not make again. Flavor is okay but needs whipped cream or frosting of some kind.

Luby's German Chocolate Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2001
There was no chocolate flavor at all. The recipe called for 2 teaspoons of cocoa, maybe it was supposed to be more. I have had this pie before at a restaurant and this tasted nothing like it. What a disappointment and waste of ingredients!

Bacon and Tomato Cups

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2000
I made these for a Women's Club Coffee yesterday and they were gone very qickly. I followed the suggestions and used Hungry Jack bisquits, but divided them in thirds, rolled into balls, then rolled out before placing in tins. I made no adjustments in the filling and ended up with 24. I also substituted 1/2 Tablespoon instant minced onion. I will definitely make these again!

Flip-Flop Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2000
I made this recipe with fresh peaches. I put the 1/2 cup sugar on the peaches and set it aside for 30 minutes. Then I drained the juice off and used it in the recipe. Very good with vanilla ice cream! Leftovers heated in microwave the next day were even better!
