Jo-Ann's Power Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2007
I did not think these would be as good or as popular as they were. We were liberal with changes--no sunflower seeds, but used dried cranberries, dried strawberries, coconut, regular oats, and substituted strawberry nectar for the applesauce. But still, the kids & I both loved them. They were filling, and sweet enough for kids but not too sweet. Great texture. Easy to make.

Pumpkin Layer Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2007
Fine for what it was. Not sure the pumpkin/cheesecake combo is the best for us. You need to plan some kind of garnish for the top--plain looking.

Graham Cracker Crust I

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2007
Fine and easy. I may try just a smidge of salt next time.

Jumbo Breakfast Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2007
I used dates & walnuts in place of the raisins. My daughter, the non-breakfast eater, really liked the ease of these. However, they are a bit large for a child, so you might adjust size for younger eaters. Also, I found it to be too much peanut butter for my tastes. I'd pbly try to reduce it, or substitute.

Big Al's K.C. Bar-B-Q Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2007
Very excellent. I didn't even use the liquid smoke, though I have to say I think it would have enhanced it. Also, it was a bit sweet for my tastes, so next time I would reduce the brown sugar. But that's the beauty of this recipe--the basic recipe is relatively simple, but creative, and allows for lots of personal adjustment.

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2007
No lemon pepper; used lemon juice. My husband--not a fish lover--thought this was great. I appreicated it using soy sauce but not tasting Asian--nice to see ingredients stretching themselves!

Hot Cross Buns I

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2007
These were very good, and not complicated. I used craisins instead of the currants, to good effect. This year (2008) I used the currants, and they were better. I got requests for the recipe from 70-year-old ladies at church, which to me is a high compliment.

This was wonderful, and not hard to make, despite the long name.

Spiced Apple Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2007
These were nice. I used 1/4 wheat flour, and regular oats for fiber, and added extra apples--all fine improvements. But they need something for eye appeal, and confectioners sugar doesn't do it. I'll try to drizzle on maple syrup icing next time.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2007
This recipe rocks! I hate having to keep buying taco seasoning, and this fixed that problem. Common spices I keep at home, too

Sandy's Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2007
Very moist, nice flavor. Sour cream gave it a bit of a tang. I don't usually like frosting, but this was quite good--worth the extra effort. However, the cake was really rich; I got way more than 12 servings, because pieces need to be sliced thin.
