Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2012
Very good basic minestrone. I tweaked it a little on recommendation from a friend that the water made it a tad bland. Subbed 6 cups of tomato juice for the 2 cups water and 4 cups tomato sauce. Perfect. Served with a loaf of hot and fresh home Italian bread for a big family lunch get-together. EVeryone loved it. :-)

The Best Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
I've tried many banana bread recipes, both new and classic, but this one was perfect. Simple and flavorful. I've made it twice this week alone! We don't do margerine, so I subbed butter. I also like adding ground flax to my baking, and 1/2 cup added to this recipe was perfect. I also put my bananas in the food processor and really puree them until they're thin and light. Makes for even fluffier bread and muffins. For muffins, I baked 30 minutes instead of the hour for the bread.

Slow Cooker Spicy Black-Eyed Peas

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
This recipe was truly fantastic. I made a couple of changes, simply because of what I had on-hand. I used turkey ham intead of pork, and vegetable bullion cubes instead of chicken. These beans were fantastic while hot and fresh, but I left them in the crockpot, turned off, overnight, and they were even better this morning! The sauce thickened up, so they're the texture of baked beans, with chunks of meat and fantastic flavor. Definitely making this super-simple recipe again!

Bread Machine Bagels

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2009
AMAZING! I've tried bagel recipes before, and they just didn't turn out well. I followed this recipe to a T, aside from omitting the egg wash and poppy seeds. They were a little crisp on the outside, and fluffy on the inside. DE-LISH! I put them in an air-tight container, and they were great the next day for breakfast as well.

DIVINE! I followed the recipe to a T, and it was awesome. I made it as a birthday cake, in 9-inch rounds, and frosted it with the recipe here called Cream Cheese Frosting II- Perfection!

Bran Flakes Muffins with Raisins

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2009
I've made these several times, and each time they've been excellent! The whole family loves these, and they're healthy to boot. I like to use butter for the shortening, and add 1/2 tsp of cinnamon for a little extra flavor.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2010
Really delicious. A great recipe for even beginner bakers. I made some changes to healthy it up a bit this time. I subbed pureed bananas for the oil, halved the sugar (due to the natural sugars in the bananas), and used half whole wheat flour. Delicious and nutritious! My two toddlers and my picky husband loved it!

Spaghetti Pie II

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2010
Really great. I subbed TVP for the ground beef so it was a vegetarian meal, and my husband (who doesn't like TVP) was none the wiser. ;-)

Annemarie's Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2010
Absolutely amazing. I doubled the recipe (in a 9x13 pan) and tripled the lemon curd. I used fresh-squeezed lemon juice, and zested three of the lemons into the crust. It was perfect. They were the rave of the family picnic we took them to. Every single person asked for the recipe!

Kielbasa with Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2011
DELICIOUS! I used whole wheat thin spaghetti instead of angel hair, and cut the kielbasa slices into quarters to make it kid-friendly. Really delicious.

Swedish Spritz

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
FANTASTIC! I made this with my three toddlers and not only was it easy and fun for all of us, the resulting cookies were buttery and delicious. SO easy. The one and only modification I made was to do a full teaspoon of almond extract and no vanilla. It was PERFECT!

Peanut Butter Chip Cookies III

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
DELICIOUS! Slightly crunchy texture on the outside, soft and chewy inside. I read through the reviews and followed other recommendations to up the amount of peanut butter to 1 cup. Excellent! I also used "extra crunchy" peanut butter and skipped the walnuts altogether. If Reese's Peanut Butter Cups were ever turned into a cookie, these would be it. SO GOOD!

Nutty Quick Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2012
Excellent! Great flavor, easy to make, and pretty healthy! My kids love it- said it tastes like yummy oatmeal in a bread form. LOL! I added a teaspoon of cinnamon for a little something extra. It was PERFECT. This will be a weekly addition to our breakfast line-up.

Caroline's Chocolate Fudge Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2012
EXCELLENT! I omitted the vanilla extract and replaced the milk with coffee. SO RICH! I wanted a bit thicker texture but not slap-you-in-the-face sweetness, so instead of adding more sugar to thicken it I added 1 tablespoon of corn starch. Perfect!

Jam Filled Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2012
Really delicious. I read through the reviews and decided to make some changes, and I'm SO glad I did. They were delicate, delicious, and light. I added 1/2 tsp Almond extract, rolled each cookie ball in sugar before making the divot for the jam. SO yummy.

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2012
INCREDIBLE! Simple, healthy, and SO delicious. A fantastic lunch with a side of tortillas or cheese quesadillas. Even my kiddos who don't like black beans themselves love using this as a dip!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2012
I followed the instructions of many-many reviews by doubling the crumble and putting half on the bottom, as well as halving the mount of liquid added. It was SO tasty, but a tad dry with all that crust. Next time(and there WILL be a next time) I'll again do the double crumble, but do the full amount of water called for. :-)
