Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
I hse tried a number of different muffin recipes and this was a very nice one! I did use oil instead of butter, added a small amount of vanilla, cinnamon and nutmet to the batter, but otherwise, left it alone. They turned out moist, rose nicely and tasted great. I am going to try these again with blueberries or just a little extra nutmeg (like a cake donut), I think they are great.

Overnight Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2008
I made this for friends the other day and as stated in the recipe, it really works overnight! I was so suprised! I did change the crumble topping a bit (personal preference and trying to get rid of some oats), but stuck to the recipe otherwise and it was wonderful. The nutmeg added a nice depth to the flavor. Thanks for sharing.

Iced Coffee

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2008
We make iced coffee often (with our leftover coffee during the day), and it is always just "okay". Today I thought I would try and see if there were any other ideas of how to make it better - and wow - the condensed milk did it. WE love it! I eyeballed most of the recipe (not much for measuring) and it came out terrific. Thanks for sharing the idea and looking forward to having it again and again and again and...

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: May 10, 2008
These werewonderful! I followed the recipe as stated, but then put them in 2 round cake pans. I refridgerated them overnight and put 1 pan out early the next morning to come to room temp. and rise. They cooked up beautifully and the guests I had over for coffee LOVED them. I did use cream cheese frosting, but not too much, they are sweet and yummy alone! I used the other pan the next day - 2 days of cinnamon rolls! WHAT COULD BE BETTER? The dough was fantastically easy to work with (I used my KithenAid mixer to knead it) and something I will definitely make again. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2008
We thought this was quite good (although I didn't LOVE it). There was a bit too much sugar in the dressing, but the seeds and nuts toned that down nicely. I used a mix of pine nuts and almonds (that is what I had on hand) and they were really yummy. Thanks!

Lamb Braised with Quince (Kidonato)

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2008
We had never tried a quince before, so when I sawy it at our local farm, we thought "what the heck!". I found this recipe (and we LOVE lamb). I made it this week and thought the flavors were really nice together. I did add one chopped up sweet potato (for color and extra yum) and that added a nice splash. I also cut up the lamb into smaller pieces (the cuts were a bit fatty, so I trimmed them down). The lamb turned out tender, the sauce was really nice. We will make this again.

Potato Leek Soup III

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2008
We enjoyed this very much. I did add 1 more leek than the recipe called for and it was delish! I didn't mash any of the potatos or blend any of it (as otrher reviewer's did) and felt that it had a great consitatancy. Thanks for the recipe.

Cheesy Turnips and Carrots

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2008
This was quite tasty. My first time using turnips and I look forward to cooking them again. I made the dish early in the day and then put it in a 2 quart casserole dish in the fridge and cooked it in the oven for about 1/2 hour at 350 (until it was bubbly). It was terrific!

Fruited Curry Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
We made this yesterday and it was wonderful! We did not have grapes on hand, nor the golden raisins, but regular raisins worked fine and the tastes melded terrifically. I have a "favorite" chicken salad recipe I usually use, but this a terrific way to mix up the normal routine.

Crawfish Chowder

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2007
I thought this sounded like a terrific "welcome to autumn" meal and it did not dissapoint. I was unable to find crawfish, so I used lump crab meat and shrimp. While sauteing the green onions I also added come chopped carrots (for flavor and color). The chowder turned out fantastic and tasted great heated up the next day too! Thanks for the great recipe.

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2007
I've made this a couple of time and it always turns out perfect. I do use butter instead of margarine and cut it into the flour mixture with a pastry blender before adding the wet ingredients. Thanks for the easy and yummy recipe!

Butter Roast Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2007
We loved this! I made very few changes (basically not measuring all of the ingredients but eyeballing) and ended up cooking it longer than necessadry (my husband was late from work) and I turned down the heat and left it in the oven. It was juicy and flavorful! Used the leftovers on sandwiches the next day - terrific!

Incredibly Easy Chicken and Noodles

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2007
I started with sauted onion, carrot and celery (and a bit of garlic). I added the soups (I used the condensed version with LOW sodium) and also used low sodium chicken broth. The only egg noodles I could find were the dry kind, but I bought a "homemade" style and the whole dish turned out WONDERFUL. I served it with hot bread and a salad. It was terrific and we ate it the leftovers throughout the weekend. YUM!

Spicy Slow Cooker Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2006
The flaors in this soup were very nice. I did what others sugessted and blended 1/2 of the bean mixture about an hour before I served it and it was a nicer thick consistancy - more like a stew/chili. We served it over rice with cheese and green onions - yummy! AND, the next day I had leftovers on nachos and used some as dip - very useful in a number of ways!

Shrimp Scampi III

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2006
This was very tasty. I kept in the garlic (and used more of it), added some green onions, pepper, basil and parsley. It was certainly tasty, but a bit greasy (that is a LOT of butter). I will definitely make it again, but probably cute back on the butter and substitute olive oil for part of it. Thanks for sharing!

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
This was excellent and SUPER easy! I basically followed the recipe, however, I took a few other reviewer's suggestions and browned the meat first (I used 2 Pork Picnic Roasts) and added an onion and some garlic to the slow cooker. The meat fell apart when I took it out. I put everything back in the slow cooker with a little of the broth and the bbq sauce. It was excellent and even better the next day as left overs! Thanks for the recipe!

Slow Cooker Green Beans, Ham and Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2006
Thanks for the recipe! I put this in the slow cooker around 7:30am and left it in all day long. We ate around 6:30 and it was very good! I used chopped Ham Steak instead of hocks and put the potatoes in mid-morning - we ate it with a loaf of warm crusty baquette and it was perfect for a chilly evening!

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2006
I have made these a couple of times and they are really simple and yummy! A little sweeter and much more moist than any I have ever had while eating out. And, not being a fan of raisins, I added frozen blueberries from this years harvest and they were terrific!

Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: May 26, 2006
Thanks for the easy and tasty recipe! I did what some other suggested and some chopped onion, sun dried tomatos and toasted pine nuts to the spinach mix. I also heated the oven to 400 degrees and cooked them for 15 minutes covered, 20 minutes uncovered and broiled them the last 5 minutes. The chicken browned a bit more, the bacon came out pretty crispy and the chicken was juicy and perfectly cooked. This was a wonderful and easy chicken dinner that I will make again!
