BLT Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2008
Wow is this good - Now, STOP if you want something healthy...this is not it. But for a special occasional treat, it is fantastic. Perfect for a bbq or potluck. It really does taste like a BLT & my husband, who loves BLT's but not macaroni salad, likes this...who wouldn't?

Real Italian Calzones

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2008
I made these exactly as the recipe states & they are pretty good! The dough is fantastic & easy to work with. The filling wasn't as good as I had expected but it is my personal taste. I will make these again but use mozzerella & parmesian instead of the cheddar & not use nearly as much basil - the basil flavor is too overwhelming for me. I would also suggest a bit of oregano. This is an EXCELLENT basic recipe that has so much potential!

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2008
This is a great basic biscuit recipe. I don't hesitate to throw these together for a quick breakfast; just add sausage & some ketchup & my family is very happy! They are also great for any meal, with butter, honey or jam & I will make them for company as well. I have even added some cheddar, made them as drop buscuits & brushed them with butter & garlic powder - like Red Lobsters but BETTER! This versatile recipe has replaced my old Betty Crocker one I used forever. Thank you!

Buttermilk Cinnamon Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2007
This is an ok recipe. It is pretty but the bread is low on flavor & very dense. I was going to give the loaves out for Christmas gifts but they are not up to my standards. It works better for french toast than for eating.

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
Nothing special - this was good but we prefer the old standard apple pie or a caramel apple pie. I found the extra work was just not work it on this one. I have made a lot of apple pies over the years; it is my husband's favorite pie but none of us are crazy about this recipe.

Blueberry Dump Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2007
This was tasty but I will probably not make it again. It was too sweet & it was not cakey at all (no eggs), the cake mix was dry in some places where the butter didn't go - It was VERY easy to make

Raspberry Chocolate Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2007
Worth 6 stars! This is an incredible recipe! The combination of chocolate & raspberry is incredible & the shortbreadish crust goes perfectly. What a lovely cookie! I made it in a slightly smaller dish than the recipe asked so my crust was thicker - as a result, I had to cook the crust 3 minutes longer. This recipe is going in my permanent file, I will use it frequently & try different berries (blueberries, blackberries, etc). DE-LISH! Unfortunately, these are far from low in fat - the butter & the chocolate provide plenty of fat - but well worth it!

Favorite Banana Blueberry Quick Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2007
This bread is ok. Personally I think this recipe has too much fat (shortening) in them & it browns much faster than it cooks even with a foil cover. I love the blueberry, walnuts, oats & banana combination but the basic bread recipe is flawed. Next time I will combine those items into a different quick bread recipe - thanks for the inspiration!

Sweet Mustard Chops

Reviewed: May 30, 2007
I usually don't try recipes that don't have any ratings but this one sounded very intriguing. As it turns out, we have found a new family favorite! This is an excellent recipe - My husband was very suspicious when he saw the marinate but once he took a bit of the grilled meat, he was in love. The flavors are perfect with the pork! Thanks so much for this recipe, it will be a permanent part of our family meals from now on!

Hummingbird Cake II

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2007
Amazing! Our whole family loved this - it didn't last a day! I made it as is but next time I will make it with less sugar & wheat flour. Excellent recipe!

Cauliflower Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2007
Great recipe! I made a few adjustments; less butter & no pepper flakes. It was excellent! My kids loved it & so did I - hubby was ok with it but he dislikes cooked veggies. I will definately make this again!

Whole Wheat Snickerdoodles I

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2007
WOW! These are fantastic! They are a dream come true - not only are they healthier than most cookies but they taste very good as well! The texture is excellent & the sweetness was perfect. I would not say that they taste like a snickerdoodle though, there is a similarity but they are good in their own right. I love the texture & they are visually pleasing (they look like a molassas cookie). Even my husband likes them & he is a one cookie man (chocolate chip). Great recipe!

Buttery Spritz Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2006
Very good & versatile recipe! I love the almond & the vanilla flavoring. I liked those so much that I made another batch but substituted the flavorings with marashino juice & added some very finely chopped cherries. Not only were they pretty, they were very good & beautiful on the Christmas treat trays! Great recipe, thanks!

Chocolate Cherry Cake III

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2006
This is a fantastic recipe! & if you omit the frosting, it is very low in fat! The cake is moist & it tastes just like a chocolate covered cherry! I was not particularly thrilled with the frosting. I made a bundt cake & it was too thick to drizzle. In the future, I will use a chocolate glaze instead. It is also very good with just whip cream so you could omit the frosting & use fat free cool whip & you would have an awesome lowfat treat! Thanks for this yummy recipe, it will go into my files!

Warm and Spicy Autumn Punch

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2006
This is the best apple cidar type punch I have ever had. I love the pineapple flavor, it adds another dimension to this traditional drink. I did not precook the oranges but rather I put all the ingredients into the crock pot the night before & let it slowly cook. The only changes I made is that I don't add the nutmeg & I double the recipe as it seems to make very small portions. It has been a big hit at parties! I also have found that it is very soothing for colds & sore throats. I find I can also make it with ground cloves & a bit of orange juice to replace the whole oranges. I have also added rum to make a warm, adult drink. & I am thinking that if I add a good red wine that it will make good mulled wine - so many possibilities with this recipe! This is a wonderful, tart wintery drink, I can't imagine why anybody wouldn't like it!

Pizza Dough II

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2006
Excellent dough recipe! It was very good as a pizza crust & then I refrigerated the rest of the dough & made a french bread out of it the next night. Very versatile & good texture - I will definately use this one again!

Chicken Tortilla Soup I

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2006
This is an incredible recipe! My whole family loves it (that is no small feat). I did add a can of black beans & more chicken (4 breasts total). The flavor is fantastic & not too spicy for the kids. This one's a keeper!

Banana Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2006
I am sure that this is very good in its original state but I used the suggestions of other reviewers & my own. I used butter instead of shortening & only 1/4 cup. I used only brown sugar & cut it to 2/3 of a cup, I used 3 bananas & I added one egg. I also didn't bother frosting it. The bars came out great, I suspect they are fluffier than the original recipe with the help of the egg. I will definately make them again & again! Thanks for the inspiration!

Stephanie's Freezer Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2006
Great basic recipe! Next time I will double the garlic; the sauce was wonderful but it needed more garlic for our tastes. Thanks for the perfect way to empty my garden & fill my freezer with a healthy sauce that I can use for pizzas, lasagna, spaghetti or just dipping bread in, YUM!
