Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2002
Robyn Bloomquist! Thank you for this easy recipe. We added some carrots, onion and celery to it and slow baked it over night because our slow cooker was too small for this size roast. My husband doesn't like beer in any form, so we used a nice shiraz in it's place. We stopped cooking it after 5 hrs and let it cool to cut it and then let it cook another 2 hrs. It was so good and filling. We made burritos out of the leftover meat and french onion soup out of the leftover broth. Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

Black Out Cake from the Fifties

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2002
This was a HUGE hit at a birthday party recently. My husband's girlfriend wanted a rich, crumb covered, chocolate cake & this more than fit the bill. I would be happy to make this for any special occasion. The birthday girl and a lot of the guests at the party thought I had gone to a fancy bakery to have this made. Too bad, I just keep forgetting to tell them the name of the restaurant! :D

Pill Bottle Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2005
Simply Addictive. We did cookie baskets for Xmas this year and this was a hit. Had husbands and wifes ticked off that one or the other ate more than their share of this cookie. We stuffed them with the cream provided. Added Cocoa and chocolate to a bit of it for some and strawberry jam for others. YUM!

Great use for the mounds of mashed potatoes we had left. Used yams in one recipe. Served them with cranberry relish and a herbed butter cheese.

French Onion Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2003
This was GREAT! I will admit we can't have any green pepper and we read the reviews and found that a lot of people were complaining that this came out dry. We added 1/2 cup of minced carrot and minced red onion and a can of half and half. We took the advice of one of the reviewers and broke up the ground beef in tiny little bits, in a huge mixing bowl. Then we added salt and fresh ground pepper to taste and some dehydrated green onion, which has a sharper flavor than fresh. Added the rice, and mixed it in well. Then the vegetables. Tasted it again. In a separate bowl we mixed the soups and half and half. Tasted again and added some nutmeg and beef base. We poured the liquid mix into a glass casserole dish and then added the ground beef/rice mixture, covered it and popped it into the oven and checked it's progress at 1 hour and it was a bit soupy. We left it in for an additional 15 minutes and it came out moist and flavorful. We topped it with Kerrygold Dubliner cheese and ate it with Bread Machine Challah I. The recipe can be found on this website. Ultimate Ease, Ultimate Yum, Easy Clean-up.

Sweet Corn Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
We didn't have any shortening in the house, so we substituted melted butter. Had fresh buttermilk on hand, so it was substituted for the milk. We added 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla and 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon. This is called Sweet Corn Muffins and they aren't kidding. It matched well with the Mustang Chili, Northern White and Red Beans and Sauteed Winter Greens that rounded out the meal. May add a bit more buttermilk and decrease the sugar next time. A keeper.

Grandma's Egg Custard Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2002
This is a nice, simple pie. Just waiting for your choice of toppings. We used carmel sauce and strawberry couli. For those who think this tastes like scrambled eggs, you must temper the eggs before incorporating the scalded milk. Makes a huge difference in result of the pie. Also if you want to make it richer and really dress it up add an extra yolk and half and half or cream for some of the milk. Thumbs up!

Gelato

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2003
Wow, I feel kind like a trailblazer! ostaff1, thanks for sharing this basic recipe. We changed it up a bit since I had a LOT of half and half on hand we used that instead of the milk and added 2 teaspoons of real vanilla(accept no substitutes on vanilla in my book), but we missed a step and forgot to strain the mix before refrigerating it overnight. It took least than 20 minutes in the ice cream freezer and will double this next time because it wasn't enough for the beaters to really work on. If not for the straining issue, this would have been velvety and smoooth from beginning to end of taste, but because we forgot a film develops on the roof of your mouth and the spoon after eating this for a bit. Still delicious, but DON'T FORGET TO STRAIN THIS! :)

French Baguettes

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2003
Just made these loaves an hour ago and one of them is already gone! They need a little bit of salt, so next time we're going to salt the egg wash. Thanks Judy Taubert!

Bread Machine Challah I

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2002
To solve the crustiness of that this bread produces, we restrain ourselves and put the loaf into a ziploc bag and put it in the refridgerator overnight. Who needs to buy those store bought breads now? :D

Autumn Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2002
Use a water bath and turn off the oven and leave the cake in for an hour after it's cooking time is up, for those who have complained that this has a runny center and that it cracked! This is an excellent recipe! We took it to a football party and it was gone before all the other desserts had even been cut! We put glazed pecans on top with sliced apples in a nice spiral pattern. We've been bombarded with requests for the recipe. This will definitely be on our Thanksgiving dessert table this year. Update! I have had over 10 requests for this cheesecake for other friend's Thanksgiving dinners. Extra money for Christmas shopping! :D

Bread Machine Calzone

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2000
Wonderful recipe when you have no time to cook! We changed this by making individual pies and made some ricotta stuffing to go with it. Take ricotta and season to taste with sugar, salt, dried basil, dried oregano, dried thyme, 2 hard boiled eggs riced, and the liquid from sauting crimini mushrooms. We added dried basil, dried organo, dried thyme, rosemary, black & white pepper, granulated garlic, granulated onion, and pecorino romano cheese. Let's the kids be creative on what they would like to stuff them with. Add a Lindemann Shiraz for the adults and extra sauce for the top and you are set. Had to come back and re-evaluate our rating. Changed it from a 4 top a 5. Definitely a keeper and has been showing up in our household in various combinations. Simply delicious!

Original Cheese Tempters

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2004
These are wonderful. Easy to make and made my diabetic father in law smile with glee because he had his own personal basket of christmas nibblers. He took one bite and asked why we hadn't made it for him before this. We cut the salt in half, since he also has high blood pressure.

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2002
As advertised, it is simple to make and easy to change into whatever is needed for the occasion. We started this one off without changing the recipe and it came out nice. Can't wait to start fiddling with it. It's been a nearly a year and we've changed this up a few times for the better. If you want to stick as close to the recipe try this variation out. Add 1 egg yolk, 1 teaspoon of butter flavoring and substitute half and half for the milk. If you have a kithenaid mixer, break out the whip instead of the batter blade. It produces a fluffier batter. Mix it until it puffs up a bit and bake it for the 30-40 mins. We used a 9x9 glass pan. Now if you have gotten to the 40 min mark and the center is still a bit liquidy, turn the oven down to 250 and let it sit on the top shelf of oven for an addtional 10 mins. It will set up well this way and you don't risk burning the edges of the cake. This cake was gone in 1 setting when my in laws dropped in. We've also mixed strawberry jam into the butter/egg mixture and gotten great results and we've done a chocolate version by making the milk into a cocoa mixture. Next up to try will be spumoni. We love to experiment!

Coconut Pecan Frosting I

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2005
I made this the other night and it was so good, it should be a sin! Toasted the pecans and coconut to add more depth to the flavor as was suggested by another member earlier in the review.

Basil Chicken and Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2002
This is a simple recipe. You no longer have to buy Noodleroni Parmesana if you just add a bit of oregano, rosemary, parsley and more parmesan. If time is a constraint, buy an already cooked chicken and make the sauce. Add the chicken into the sauce and bring on the dinner plates!

Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2002
Not bad, needs more seasonings. Next time we will have to shred the onions and used 3 different types of onions. Been dreaming about making a filet mignon napolean with them.
