Cooked Eggnog

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2014
Good set of ingredients, but better to scald the milk and pour slowly into egg/sugar mixture while stirring constantly and then heat on low until thickened than to heat the egg directly in the pot. Scrambled my eggs doing it as directed. Should have followed my custard cooking method.

Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2013
Mine came out plenty firm to pipe onto cupcakes. Great taste! Added some cocoa powder to half of it to make chocolate icing, too.

Fantastic Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2013
I made this with about a pound of cubed chicken since that's what I had. 1 can black beans, 1 can red beans, 1 can white beans. I drained the beans before I noticed not to, so I added in a little salt. I pureed a can of diced tomatoes, which added plenty of moisture. Also added about a tsp sugar and a tsp of chicken boullion. Oh, and used marjoram instead of oregano (which is a sub I usually make since I like the flavor better). Served over white rice with sour cream on top. My family adored this chili! Even my picky kids inhaled it! The herbs add a nice, savory flavor and the chili comes out flavorful, but not too spicy. Didn't have a lot of time to let it simmer all together (about 10 minutes or so), so I bet it would taste even better after letting the flavors mix more. Only have a tiny bit leftover to see!

Sarah's Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2012
A very simple rice recipe that's quick and pleasing. Hubby inhaled it and asked what all was in it that made it softer than regular rice (the orzo had him wondering about the texture). I called it "butter rice" for my picky kiddos and they inhaled it too.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2012
This recipe is very yummy, but did need a few things. First, 8 apples would have been waaaaayyyy too many for my pie pan. I had 5 big apples sliced up and it mounded up pretty high, no way could I have fit more in there. I added a little cinnamon to the syrup mixture and it came out quite delicious. I was thinking that my pie pan must not be as deep as recommended in the recipe, so I checked the pie only 30 minutes after reducing the heat. Nope, it baked for the full 45 minutes to get the crust cooked to perfection and the inside of the pie nice and bubbly.

Sweet Potato Pie I

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2012
I made 4 of these pies yesterday with some of the sweet potatoes from my garden. For three of them, I used half white sugar and half brown, 2 tsp lemon juice, and evaporated milk. I just used my potato masher and handheld mixer to blend. These set up extremely well. For the last one, I ran the sweet potato through my food processor to get it really smooth. Made the same changes, but used half and half instead of evap milk. This one didn't set up as well (but tasted just fine and had a very smooth texture). So, I'll be doing the first method from now on. Definitely make sure that your sweet potatoes are very soft all the way through before mashing. Got rave reviews from everyone who had some!

Nacho Cheese Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2012
Great basic nacho cheese sauce. I sprinkled in a couple of dashes of chili powder for a little more flavor. Great on tortilla chips, and many other kinds, too! My kids inhaled this!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2012
A very good pancake recipe. I did need to thin the batter a bit with some extra milk.

Cherry Cobbler I

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2012
Definitely some of the best cherry cobbler that I've ever had! I had bunches of cherries left after making jam this morning, so I decided to look for a baked cherry something recipe and found this one. I only used 3/4 cup sugar in the syrup, and bumped the cornstarch up to 1 1/2 tbsp and it came out perfectly. I also dissolved the cornstarch in a small amount of cool water first since it's much easier than in hot water. Probably should let it cool a little more before serving next time since the cherries were really, really hot inside. I will definitely keep this recipe!

Peaches and Cream Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2012
Delicious cookies! I used two peaches, so it was probably about double what the recipe called for, but I wanted plenty in there. As other people suggested, I used 1 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, and added in about 1 tsp vanilla. I mixed in about 1/4 cup slivered almonds since that's what I had. Each batch baked for 15 minutes and didn't brown a lot, but came out cooked just right. Nice soft cookie with lots of flavor! My whole family is inhaling them!

Pesto Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2012
I made pesto with basil from my garden and used that on top of the chicken. Wrapped it with bacon instead of prosciutto (since it's what I had at the time). Very flavorful! I think that I might try a thinner cut bacon, or the prosciutto, next time and cook for a little less time to keep the chicken more tender. Even my picky kids ate it!

Aunt Anne's Coffee Cake

Reviewed: May 14, 2011
A very yummy, simple coffee cake. I made it as directed, but used a 8x8 pan instead so that it would come out thicker. Just the right amount of topping. Baked for more like 40 minutes since it was so thick.

Rich and Simple French Onion Soup

Reviewed: May 4, 2011
Excellent! I used sweet onions fresh from our garden and a really good beef boullion for the broth. I split french rolls on top of each bowl and generously topped with cheese and then broiled to melt and brown. My husband and I really liked it, but the kids weren't impressed since onion soup (even at its best, which this is) isn't pretty to look at.

Potato Latkes I

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2010
I first tried this recipe as written several months ago and they came out thick and salty. I decided to try again with only 1 egg per 2 cups potatoes and a bit less than 1 tsp salt - they came out perfect!

Canned Apple Pie Filling

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
Very easy to make and the syrup tastes awesome! I haven't yet made any pies with this though. I got just over 7 quarts out of this (which was about 4 apples per quart on average, depending on the size of the apples). I only had 4 quart jars handy, so I'm freezing 3 1-quart plastic containers and have the leftovers in a smaller tupperware in the fridge. I'll probably use some of this for a Thanksgiving pie and make some more to give as gifts (I'm really into canning things this year). Oh, and I used 2 cups brown sugar and the rest white, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, and about 1/2 tsp allspice. I don't think I had quite 1 cup cornstarch, but it was close enough that the syrup thickened up nicely. I followed some other reviewers suggestions about prepping the apples in the jars before adding the cornstarch/water mixture. That way, my syrup didn't get too thick and I wasn't trying to do too many things at once.

Apple Fritters I

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
Very yummy! I added about 1 tsp cinnamon and a bit more sugar as I was using Granny Smith apples. So far, I've only cooked about half the recipe (we're stuffed full of fritters!) and am going to refrigerate the rest for another morning. I chopped the apples and added them directly to the batter. Generous tablespoons seem to be a good size to cook quickly and thoroughly. Any bigger and they still are gooey inside when they're done outside.

Peach Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2010
Excellent pie! I only managed to fit about 6 peaches in my pie pan - they were big ones from our local orchard. I let the pie sit in the oven after I turned it off, as others have recommended, and the pie goo set up just fine. I will definitely make this recipe again!!!
