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 .

Spring Salad with Fennel and Orange

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
This is GREAT, especially if you have some grilled chicken on hand. I haven't tried pork, but, with the fennel..it might also work. (My husband loves fennel, and throws it on the grill, with a little olive oil. I take it, then, chop it up and add it to different salads..The best is my rice salad made with Italian salad dressing, scallions, cherry tomatoes, olives, mushrooms and mayonaisse.)

Summer Corn Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2008
Excellent salad....Just one thing...No need to add oil...leave it light and refreshing. I used extra fresh basil from the garden, added about 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (crushed red pepper)...I have made this with both yellow and white corn (the combination being my favorite), any type of tomato, just remember to remove the seeds. Red, white onions...or even chopped scallions work...Just remember...The basil is what gives it the flavor. A great presentation is to pile this in the middle of your serving platter and place sliced stuffed olives, black olives, mushrooms, hard boiled eggs, capers,chopped radishes, diced celery...well you get the idea, in sections of each around the salad. People mix in what they want. Enjoy!! Everyone here loves this salad. Remember NO NEED for the oil.

Absolutely Best Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2010
This is my favorite recipe. I have been making it for over thirty years. I use all-purpose flour. Instead of cocoa, I melt two unsweetened (1-oz. each) chocolate squares, with the 1/2 cup butter/margarine. At Christmas, use peppermint extract, instead of vanilla extract....Frost...Great for gift giving. Make sure to attach a recipe card....They always ask for the recipe.

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)

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!

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!

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 !!

Ultimate All in One Chicken Dinner

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2007
GREAT RECIPE WITH A A COUPLE OF CHANGES THAT YOU REALLY DO NOT HAVE TO DO. IT IS FINE JUST THE WAY IT IS. I DID USE LESS OF THE CHICKEN BROTH, BUT ADDED WHITE WINE (A GOOD HALF A CUP ). I USED RED POTATOES. I DID WHAT ANOTHER REVIEWER SAID AND RUBBED THE SEASONINGS ONTO THE CHICKEN , BEFORE BROWNING. AFTER PLACING EVERYTHING BACK INTO THE PAN, I ADDED OLD BAY SEASONING. I HAD SOME FROZEN GREEN BEANS , THAT WE HAD THE NIGHT BEFORE, SO I USED THEM IN PLACE OF CANNED (DO NOT USED CANNED VEGEIES). THIS RECIPE WILL ACCEPT OTHER KINDS OF VEGIES,USE YOUR IMAGINATION (CARROTS,ARTICHOKE HEARTS...EVEN OLIVES).WHEN MY HUSBAND COMPLIMENTS A MEAL, YOU KNOW THAT IT IS GOOD...AND HE DID !

Applesauce Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2007
I doubled the recipe and used a 9x13" pan. I add, besides the pumpkin pie spice, 1 t. ground cloves, 1/2 t. nutmeg, 1/4 t. allspice and a 1/2 t. cayenne pepper. I baked it for 30 minutes and topped, while still warm, with a mixture of confwctioners' sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg which I put in a small strainer and rubbed with a spoon to give a dusting effect. They were very moist and very, very good.

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.

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".
