Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2007
I HAVE BEEN MAKING THIS ( VERY SIMILIAR ) FOR YEARS . I USE A 10 OZ. PACKAGE FROZEN SPIANCH (DEFROSTED ), 4 EGGS , 2 1/2 CUPS MIXTURE OF ANY TYPE OF CHEESES ( I LIKE SWISS WITH PARMESAN OR MOZZAELLA WITH RICOTTA ) , ANYTHING WORKS . I THROW IN CHOPPED SCALLIONS , A TOUCH OF NUTMEG AND GARLIC SALT . I ALSO TOP WITH BOTTLED MUSHROOM SLICES , GREEN OLIVES , TOMATO SLICES OR WHATEVER I HAVE ON HAND . BAKE AT 375 ,IN A 9 " PIE PAN , FOR 30 MINUTES , OR UNTIL THE EDGE STARS TO BROWN AND THE CENTER NO LONGER BUBBLES ( WITH MOISTURE ) . WHEN ENTERTAINING , I DOUBLE THE RECIPE AND BAKE IN A 9" X 13" GLASS BAKING DISH , CUT INTO SMALL SQUARES AND SERVED AT ROOM TEMPERATURE. IT IS ALWAYS IS A HIT .

Old-Fashioned Roasted Pecans

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2008
I changed this just a little and they are now my favorite nuts. In place of the white sugar, I used brown sugar. I also add a small amount of cumin and cayenne pepper.

Dog Biscuits II

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2006
I BAKE EVERYDAY AND SOME OF THOSE DAYS ARE MAKING DOG TREATS . THESE WENT OVER AS ONE OF THEIR FAVOTITES ( GERMAN SHEPARD , BLACK LAB , TN WHATCHAMACALLIT DOG AND A NEW DACHSHUND PUPPY). THE ONLY THING THAT I CHANGED WAS TO USE BABY FOOD ( BEEF , CHICKEN ), FROM JARS ,IN PLACE OF THE MEAT . IT WORKS OUT GREAT. YOU REALLY ONLY NEED ONE ( 2.5 OZ. )JAR , BUT I USED TWO. DO AS MANY AS YOU WANT , JUST ADJUST THE AMOUNT OF FLOUR . I ALSO PUT SOME CHOPPED PARSLEY IN , A COUPLE OF TABLESPOONS IS PLENTY , TO HELP THEIR " DOGGEY " BREATH .

Gingerbread Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2007
Would have given this a 4 1/2 star rating, only because the cocoa stood out. I made mini-cupcakes (39), baked for 15 minutes and they came out full and with a nice light texture. Next time I would add more ginger and , maybe a touch of ground cloves. I will make them again !!

Boston Brown Bread I

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2008
Great recipe, BUT I did change it to make it more like the true Boston Brown Bread. I used equal portions of white, wheat and rye flour. (Next time I will try using corn meal which is what is in the original Brown Bread recipes.) I took the raisins ( 2/3 cup) and mixed them in with one egg and let sit in the refrigerator for a couple of hours ( adding at the end). I baked the bread in a loaf pan at 350* for approximately one hour, tenting for the last 15 minutes. When done, I removed from the pan and placed the bread inside the foil that I used to tent the bread and wrapped it loosely...This gave it the steamed affect....It was pretty close to the old B&M Boston Brown Bread (in a can). I am sure this recipe is fine just as is...I just have the habit of changing recipes that I come across. Enjoy!! (An old Bostonian)

Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2008
I gave this five stars in that it is a quite versatile recipe. I have boiled up raisins in half water and half lemon juice. I added 1/2 tablespoon corntarch mixed with 2 tablespoons of water to the fruit, to thicken it. I have also used dried apricots and/or an assortment of dried fruits that I put in the food processor to chop up. I boiled these in orange juice (no water). In the oatmeal mixture, I added 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg, just to give it a little more flavor. Another filling is Cranraisins and dried apples boiled in apple juice. I am sure that others will come up with many other varitions.

Peanut Butter Cup Brownies

Reviewed: May 9, 2007
THESE ARE GREAT , I HAVE BEEN MAKING THEM FOR YEARS . ONE THING,IN THE RECIPE IT SAYS "UNWRAPPED" REESES PEANUT BUTTER CUPS. I ALWAYS TAKE THEM OUT OF THE PAPER. IF YOU LIKE THIS RECIPE, I MAKE COOKIES, USING THE BROWNIE MIX (1 EGG, 2 TABLESPOONS WATER AND 1/3 CUP VEGETABLE OIL) AND ADD REESES PEANUT BUTTER CHIPS TO THE BATTER. BAKE @ 375 FOR 7-8 MINUTES.(FOUND THIS RECIPE ON A DUNCAN HINES BROWNIE MIX BOX) QUICK AND EASY AND THE KIDS, BIG KIDS , TOO , LOVE THEM.

Georgia Peach Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
Great pie crust...Something different. For the peaches, to keep them from turning brown, toss them in lemon juice. If you think the lemon juice makes them too tart, add a little sugar. With this crust, I wouldn't add sugar to the peaches. Try the peaches mixed with raspberries and blueberries. For a different topping, mix together one part vanilla yogurt (I use fat free) with two parts whipped topping (Cool Whip). Great summer dessert!

Boston Baked Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2008
I would give this 4 1/2 stars, if possible. Being from Boston, I made a couple of slight changes...I omitted the ketchup. I also added a dash of ground cloves. Instead of cooking in the oven, I decided, as others, to use my crockpot...No need to heat up the oven in the hot summer temperatures. I rinsed and covered the beans with water overnight. In my crockpot, I added 3 1/2 cups water, with the beans and all the other ingredients; stirred to combine, covered and cooked on the low setting for 12-14 hours (until the beans were tender and the sauce was thick). Excellent!

Parmesan Herb Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2008
Great recipe. I was looking for a bread to make to use up some pepperoni. I halved the recipe and used Rapid Rise yeast. I added the Rapid Rise yeast to all the dry ingredients, except the cheese and pepperoni, stirred it all together. Heated up the water and margarine to 120* and added it to the dry ingredients, stirring together. Using my Kitchen Aid mixer with the dough hook attachment, I kneaded the dough for a minute or two, then add the cheese and about 1/3 cup chopped up pepperoni and kneaded another minute or two, just until it formed a ball. I removed the dough hook and covered the mixing bowl with a towel and let it sit for 10 minutes. I greased a 1-1/2 quart casserole and placed the dough that I shaped into a ball in it and covered for 1 hour. I sprinkled the top with some of the cheese and baked it for 45 minutes at 350*, then removed from dish to a wire rack. Using just a little more margarine, I coated the top. Not only did it look beautiful, it tasted great. This is a keeper...and so easy!

Asparagus Wrap

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2009
This is a great recipe, which I have been making for a good forty years. I melt the butter, and after rolling the asparagus rolls, I roll them in melted butter and place them on a cookie sheet in the freezer (or whatever you have that will fit). I freeze them for an hour or so, then cut into bite size pieces (4-5 per roll). Wrap them up, bag or "seal" and place in the freezer. Take them out, as many as you need and bake.(You can also , after rolling in the butter, roll them in sesame seeds. The seeds will toast , when baked.)

Orange Marmalade Bars

Reviewed: May 3, 2007
AFTER READING THE OTHER REVIEWS, I DECIDED TO CHANGE THE RECIPE, BY VERY LITTLE. I CHANGED THE SERVING AMOUNT FROM 12 TO 24 . INSTEAD OF 3 CUPS OF FLOUR , I USED 2 CUPS OF FLOUR AND 1 CUP OF OATS. I PRESSED DOWN THE FIRST HALF OF THE FLOUR/OAT MIXTURE INTO THE BOTTOM OF A GREASED 9" X 9" PAN, AND USED A MIXTURE OF HALF ORANGE MARMALADE AND APRICOT PRESERVES. WITH THE REMAINING FLOUR MIXTURE, I DROPPEED TEASPOONS OF THE DOUGH ONTO THE FRUIT LAYER. THIS WAY YOU DO NOT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT ROLLING OUT THE DOUGH, IT FILLS IN AS IT BAKES. I BAKED IT FOR 30 MINUTES AND WHEN IT CAME OUT OF THE OVEN, I DID A VERY LIGHT DUSTING OF CINNAMON SUGAR. WHEN COMPLETELY COOLED, I SIFTED A FINE DUSTING OF CONFECTIONERS SUGER ON TOP. HOPEFULLY, THIS WILL HELP THOSE WHO WERE HAVING A HARD TIME WITH THE TOP LAYER. I BAKE EVERYDAY AND SEND THE "GOODIES" OFF TO WORK WITH MY HUSBAND. IN THE EVENING I ALWAYS ASK HOW THEY WENT OVER AND TO THESE THE ANSWER WAS "GREAT".

Lauren's Sugar and Spice Black Pepper Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
These are fantastic ! My husband loves me to make mini-cinnamon crumb cupcakes for work. They are so time consuming. I had a box of Krusteaz Cinnamon Crumb Cake mix in the pantry, so I used this recipe ( doubled...the box was 1 lb. 5 oz.), used a 1 1/2" scoop, rolling the sides and top, but not the bottom ( afraid that the sugar would melt and burn the bottom of the cookies), baked for 12 minutes ( the tops did not crack...didn't matter)...made 36 unbelievably great cookies. Now when he asks for his cinnamon cakes, he is getting these ( and I am sure , with no complaints. He hasn't tasted them yet , but I know he will love them.) Thank you soooooo much !

Strawberry Cream Freeze: Serve it Your Way!

Reviewed: May 22, 2009
After reading the ingredients, I simplified the recipe. In place of the cream cheese, milk, pudding and cool whip, I used one tub of Philly's Ready-To-Eat Cheesecake filling. In addition to the strawberries, I added chunks of bananas and a small can of crushed pineapple (drained). In place of the strawberry sauce, I used a jar of hot fudge sauce and swirled it in, scooped into waffle ice cream cones and then pushed the tops into chopped walnuts, wrapped each individually, in plastic wrap, and froze. This is what I call a Cheesecake Banana Split in a cone. Adults and kids alike loved them!!
