Fall-Apart Pork Stew

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2008
Great! Even better the next day. Followed the recipe exactly except for I used navy beans because that's what I had and I used homemade beef stock. I also used boneless pork ribs instead of a roast. They were very very tender. The stew was quite spicy. My red pepper flakes were very fresh. My husband liked it's somewhat unusual flavor very much and wants me to make it again. (I think it was the cinnamon and nutmeg that he noted were unusual flavors in the stew.)

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2008
Delish! I pretty much followed the recipe as it was written with the exception of using only 1 Tbsp. sugar instead of 2 and 1 Tbsp. fresh chopped basil instead of 1 1/2 tsp. dried basil because that's what I had on hand. I also took another reviewer's advice and poured hot water over the noodles for 30 minutes while the sauce was cooking. They were perfect and it was much easier. I also was unsure of the fennel seeds, but I used them and they added a nice very subtle flavor that we loved. Definitely don't leave them out. Thank you for this recipe! This will be the only one I use from now on. I can't wait to make it for company!

Sour Cream Apple Pie Deluxe

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2008
FANTASTIC!! Loved it! I was hesitant to make it because we are really traditional pie lovers. I am so glad I finally gave in and tried it. My hard to please husband loved it too and can't wait until I make another one. These are the subtle changes I made: I substituted maple syrup for the sugar as I always do to make it a little healthier. And I reduced the amount of maple syrup to 1/2 cup. Next time I will try 1/3 cup as it was still a tad to sweet for us. I also added about a 1/2 cup more apples and just a little more cinnamon (we like cinnamon). Other than that everything else was the same. Delish!

Squash Braid

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2009
Great Bread! Soft wonderful flavor. I have made this several times. The squash in my garden grows to massive size so I always have leftovers. What better thing to do than use the leftovers for bread the next day. My son and husband love this bread with a nice hot bowl of soup. I often pair it with the Italian Sausage Tortellini Soup also from this site. If you use leftover squash make sure you warm it up before incorporating it into the bread. Also I don't proof the yeast in the water. I just make sure I use good yeast and mix it into the flour and then add the warm squash, milk, egg, etc. Also, I used better for bread flour instead of all-purpose. After kneading the bread and using the full 3 cups of flour, I thought the bread was rather soft and would need more flour, but I followed the recipe and only used 3 cups and it turned out wonderful. Thank you for the recipe Amy.

Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
Exceptional! Very tender with great flavor. When I made this I didn't think the list of ingredients was anything special, but I had the tenderloins and wanted to marinate them in something. This recipe had great rating so I gave it a try. I'm very glad I did. My hard to please husband and son loved it and asked me to make it again. Thanks for the recipe!

Bread and Celery Stuffing

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
Great traditional stuffing! The only change I made was to use french bread instead of white to give it more substance. I also added a little more broth, maybe a ladel full half way through baking. I made this again this thanksgiving and I can't rave about it enough! Everyone loved it! It's FANTASTIC!

White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2009
Great recipe! I did cut back on the sugar as recommended I doubled the recipe and used 3/4 c brown and 3/4 c white sugar rather than the full 2 cups. I also used fresh cranberries that I put in the oven at 250 degrees for 10 minutes as another reviewer suggested because that is what I had on hand. I also substituted vanilla for the brandy and used parchment paper instead of greasing the cookie sheets for easy clean-up. Will definitely make these often. They were a nice soft chewy cookie that looked great too.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2009
Fantastic. I did cut down on the sugar in the muffin to 1/2 cup and used sucanat. I upped the cinnamon to a little more than a 1/4 tsp and baked 6 jumbo muffins for 20 minutes. I thought the crumb was perfect. Perfect amount (and we like a lot of crumbs), texture and flavor. I squeeze the crumb a little before sprinkling it on the muffin as to form some bigger pieces. Terrific muffin and very moist!

Pickled Hot Peppers

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
These were FABULOUS! Much better than I expected. I did add a little olive oil and fresh basil for extra flavor and I did not crush the garlic, I halved it or quartered it so that there were nice big chunks in there. We waited 6 months before opening. I can't wait to make more and give them away as gifts. I will definitely be growing more hot peppers this year.

World's Best Scones! From Scotland to the Savoy to the U.S.

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2008
Fantastic! I used my food processor to cut in the butter then transfered to a bowl before adding the liquid ingredients. I did substitute the milk for heavy cream and used blueberries instead of raisins. I made 8 scones and baked them for 13 minutes and they were very very tender and delicious. Be careful not to over bake.

Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2009
TOP OF THE LINE! I've tried several breakfast casserole recipes on this site and this is DEFINITELY the one I will use from now on. I made the recipe as stated, however I did brown the shredded potatoes for a little bit in the oven before pouring the rest of the ingredients into the casserole dish and I made my own breakfast sausage using fresh ground pork. I don't like all the added MSG. My son can't get enough of this and is begging me to make it again. Terrific! Thanks for the recipe!

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2009
Great cookie! The only thing I did different was reduce the sugar to 3/4 cup each & using parchment paper instead of greasing the cookie sheet. I put them on the cookie sheet in balls and they flattened out slightly to produce a nice hardy cookie, not flat! Yummm! Oh and I did add rasins.

Baked Ziti IV

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
Absolutely AMAZING! However, I did make some changes. I have tried many recipes for baked ziti and this will be my forever keeper! This is what I did, First I used the sause recipe from World's Best Lasagna from this site (using only 1 Tbsp. sugar and a huge Tbsp. fresh basil). Then, back to the Baked Ziti recipe, I added to my sauce the additional sauteed onions, garlic and FRESH rosemary also adding a tsp. freshly dried mint from my herb garden (The secret to REALLY GREAT sauce!). I mixed the cottage cheese with the sour cream and only used mozzarella cheese (personal preference). I finished by at least doubling the parmesan cheese and WOW! INCREDIBLE! This definitely puts and end to looking for the best Zita recipe! This is it!

Strawberry Jam

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2009
Excellent! I put the strawberries in my vitamix added the lemon juice and reduced the sugar to 1 1/2 cups (I think I'll reduce it more next time.). The cook time was just over 20 minutes. It thickened nicely and tastes delicious! Next time I think I will crush the berries by hand rather than using the blender so that I will have more chunks in the jam.

Zucchini Patties

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2009
These are wonderful! The only thing I did different was to add jack cheese instead of mozz. because that is what I had. I husband and son who won't touch zucchini loved these. In fact I knew they wouldn't even try these had they known that they were zucchini so I told them they were potato pancakes. When they finished them off and commented on how delicious they were, I told them that they were made with zucchini. They liked them so much that they both took them cold to work the next day for lunch. Great way to use up some of the abundant zucchini! Edit: I've been making these for years and just this last time I squeezed out all the water from the zucchini before mixing everything together. What a difference! I will never skip that step again. Also, I used a couple Tbsp. of brown rice flour instead of the white flour and it worked great. Couldn't tell the difference. Now they are gluten-free!

Blackberry Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
OH MY! This was amazing! I don't know how anyone could write a bad review for this. Because of the reviews that stated that this was too sweet, I reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup to 1 cup water and we thought it was just right. Also I only sprinkled about 2 tsp. of sugar on top after baking 45 minutes. After sprinkling the top with sugar I baked for another 10 minutes rather than 15. I did not have self rising flour so I followed the instructions given for that. And I confess I did use 1/2 and 1/2 instead of milk. The dough was exceptional. Crunchy on the top and extremely moist underneath. Wow! NOT dry at all! I can't wait to make this again. Thanks of the recipe.

Michelle's Peanut Butter Marbled Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
Words cannot describe how amazing these brownies are! They were the absolute hit of the graduation party that we brought them to. They were incredibly moist, not cake like at all. The peanut buter layer was just as good, gooey, mosit and peanut buttery. I topped them off with Caroline's chocolate fudge frosting also from this site. And finally after chilling them to harden the frosting I cut them into squares and topped them with crumbled mini resee's peanut butter cups. They looked just a great as they tasted! I did change them just a little. Here's what I did: I used a whole 8 oz. brick of cream chese, upped the peanut butter to 2/3's cup, only added 3 Tbsp. suger to the PB batter, used 1/2 and 1/2 instead of milk, reduced the sugar to 1 1/2 cups in the brownie batter, used milk choc. chips instead of semi-sweet and baked them for 37 minutes exactly. After spooning on the reserved chocolate batter over the peanut butter layer be careful as you swirl it on top as not to cut into the peanut butter layer in order to get a nice layered effect with nice swirls on top. This is one of those, YOU MUST TRY recipes! Everyone wants a copy!

Caroline's Chocolate Fudge Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
Terrific! I used this to frost Michelle's Peanut butter marbled brownies and they were the hit of the party! I did reduce the milk to 1/2 cup and had to add more confectioner's sugar to thicken it up so next time I will reduce the milk even further. After I frosted the 13 by 9 pan of brownies I had quite a bit left over.

Baklava

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2009
GREAT recipe! I used walnuts and I did use 1 1/2 times the sauce, however next time I make it I will definitely reduce the white sugar. It was much too sweet for my taste. I also, as did another reviewer, find that 350 degrees was a little too hot. I cut the baking time a little short because it was starting to get a little too dark. Next time I will bake it a 325 instead of 350. I thought this would be very time comsuming, but it was really quite easy to essemble and didn't take long at all. Thanks for the recipe!

Baked Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2009
FABULOUS! RAVE REVIEWS! I omitted the mayo and added extra sour cream. Otherwise I made it as recipe states. I did bake the potatoes before cutting them up for the casserole. I will be making this often!
