Baked Coconut Shrimp

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2014
Sound cooking concept, too salty. I found finely milled unsweetened coconut at Winco bulk food section. 'Combined it with regular sweetened flake coconut, which balanced the coating better, I thought. Next time I'll omit the 1 t salt, turn the heat up to 425. Overall worthwhile, shrimp stay moist, nice peppery bite, moderately crunchy.

Peanut Butter Chip Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: May 31, 2014
Good (I believe) as written. As always I tinkered w/original. Sub 1/2 C oatmeal flour for 1/2 of ap flour, added 1/2 c peanuts, increased salt to 3/4 t, increased vanilla to 1T. Dirtbiking boys and dads approved. I agree with other positive reviewers that the basic chocolate dough is very well balanced and suitable to infinite variation.

Balsamic Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2013
This is awesome, although I agree with many other reviewers; either pre-cook the carrots or be prepared have to cook them in the oil a lot longer than 10 minutes. I like them parboiled in a 1/4 c of water, with 1t ea dried parsley and rosemary. The herbs stick when the carrots are drained and compliment the flavors of balsamic vinegar and sugar. Shallots sauteed in the olive oil added before that sugar, are nice too, if you have them.

Pumpkin Gingerbread

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2012
I love this recipe. Of course, I have messed with it, and will continue to do so. In general however it's good as it is. If you are shooting for greater healthiness, replace the oil with applesauce, and use 20 drops of stevia extract to replace 1 c of sugar. Still bakes up moist and dense, without the extra fat and sugar. If you are a lover of spicy gingerbread increase the ginger to 1 1/2 T and cinnamon up to 1/4 c, add more nutmeg and clove, also a shot of coriander, a bit of mace. As some other reviewers have suggested it can hardly be gingerbread without subbing in molasses for some of the sugar. I've done so with good results, although as long as you use brown sugar the difference is negligible. I plan to try it with a 2/3 c of Chai tea instead of the water this time. Baking time warning, using two loaf pans, it takes much longer to bake than the instruction suggest, almost an hour and a half. Maybe this is just an indictment of my oven's calibration.

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2012
Amazing, I would never have expected this to be so popular with my finicky family. Aside from substituting Elk cut into the 1/4 x 2 inch strips, marinated for 1 hour in a 4/1 water-balsamic vinegar, 1T sugar, dried thyme, bay leaf mixture I would not dare change anything. Mustard who would EVER have thought that could make such a tasty difference. Thanks Donna, your recipe has helped me immeasurably.

Aunt Anne's Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2012
Very good, needs a larger streusel to batter proportion, or I'd have given 5 stars. Nice texture and wonderfully fast to put together. Try it w/lemon zest & dried blueberries in the batter.

Sour Cream Apple Pie Deluxe

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2011
Wicked good! Used a little Pecan Maple granola in the and 1 c chopped walnuts in the crumb topping with 1/2 t of ginger, a dash of clove, and 1 t of cinnamon. Spiked the sour cream mix with another 1/2 t of nutmeg & pored over 1 c golden raisins and 4 c of chunked Granny Smiths. I hate it when I love my own cooking this much. It's just not modest, but this pie, even while it is still warm, is fabulous. I love whoever it was that originally posted this one. 'Can't wait to take one to church for Sunday-before-Thanksgiving feast. I will OWN all my sister-in-Christ's dessert contributions. It's wrong for me to look forward to that, I know, but...

Sweet Sausage 'n' Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2011
Long ago I had a check-out paperback crock pot cookbook. There was a version of this in it which was truly the best...but this is not bad at all. Cut the sugar, add cubed ham and/or bacon lightly fried. Pre-cook whole baby carrots. Cook this in the crockpot for a nice change of pace. Makes a fine summer meal with a salad, since it doesn't require much heat in the kitchen.

Hamburger Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2011
Good and easy as is. W/ground turkey the chicken stock makes more sense. 'Don't really need the dry onion soup mix. I have made it a couple of times & it's a dependable way to use ground poultry

Easy Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2011
As published, it's a 4 star recipe, pretty good & ridiculously easy. Once the numerous reviewer recommendations are incorporated, it's a 5+ star delight. What I did: coarsely shredded rind of 1 lemon added to crust mixture. 1/4 c sliced almonds added to reserved top crust mixture. Combined 1/4 c fresh lemon juice w/ low fat cream cheese, 4 oz tub of lemon yogurt, 11 drops of NuStevia extract to filling. Bake as directed.

Asparagus and Mozzarella Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2010
Quite good. Tends to be a little too bland, but it has lovely textures. The fresh asparagus stayed crisp even after the 40 minutes it took for the breast meat to be cooked through. 'Thinking it will be better with more cheese than the 1/4 cup called for and possibly a little something creamy spread over the asparagus before cooking. 'Even a good quality Ranch dressing might work.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2010
Whoa! these were so simple to make using the melted butter step, AND they had wonderful flavor, very nice texture; a generally excellent chocolate chip batch! I cut the quantity in half, because my guys are princesses who won't eat a three-day old cookie, and I substituted a tablespoon of stevia power for the white sugar. STILL a great cookie! LOVE this recipe!

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2010
Very nice, particularly for Americanized pallet. 'Not the baked, more austere Celtic sort at all. Hence only 4 stars, although my family enjoyed it, as will my friends from the southeastern states. It's a totally dependable recipe if what you want is a rather sweet, wet, creamy pudding. I substituted 1t stevia for sugar, added 1/2 t nutmeg to the flavorings and omitted the raisins as a nod to my guys' preferences.
