Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2014
I made a double batch (I had that many bananas!), so it was four loaves at once. I followed the recipe exactly as written EXCEPT for the sliced bananas part. My bananas could NOT be sliced as they were too ripe--black, really! So, mashed took the place of "sliced"! I tested the loaves at 50 minutes and they were done perfectly. (That could be my oven, although the oven thermometer indicates my oven runs true to temp.). Anyway, this is one great recipe. The banana bread was excellent! I'll be making this recipe again, often.

Apple Harvest Pound Cake with Caramel Glaze

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2013
Made this for the big Christmas party last night. Huge hit! Really delicious... and actually, even BETTER this morning for breakfast! The caramel drizzle is great also--in fact, I've now put the caramel sauce recipe in my separate "sauces" recipe file to make it in the future with other baked goods. Even so, I think the next time I make the bundt cake I'm going to melt caramel candies and drizzle that caramel sauce over the cake--just to experiment. By the way, I didn't have Granny Smith apples on hand so I used what I had--Golden Delicious. They were a bit small so I used three instead of two. While cutting them up I added the diced apple pieces to a bowl of cold water to which I had added lemon juice. (I did this for two reasons: one, to keep the apple pieces from turning brown, and two, to help make them a little tart to more closely resemble the taste of Granny Smith apples.) I kept them cold and covered in the fridge until it was time to fold them into the cake batter with the chopped walnuts. This cake recipe is a holiday keeper!

Chocolate Zucchini Bread I

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2012
One thing I know for sure: this zucchini bread tastes MUCH better the second day! I really was not too impressed when I ate a slice just an hour after baking it. I'm glad I didn't review it then. The next day, and for the next few days, this chocolate zucchini bread was quite delicious!

Hungarian Goulash II

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2012
While this is a different version than I'm used to eating, it is nonetheless very good! I grew up eating my aunt's (and godmother) Hungarian Goulash. Her version was made with ground beef and elbow macaroni. I made this version as directed but tripled the sauce ingredients, which worked out great. Using the slow cooker is a blessing! Quite delicious and very easy to make!

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2012
Lawdy, Miss Claudy! I have been making my own white bread for years--a recipe I found in a cookbook back in the 70s. I swore by that recipe which really is very good, but THIS simple, basic Amish white bread recipe is without a doubt the greatest I have ever tasted! So easy, so forgiving... and so perfect! I've already committed it to memory and am making it at least once a week. Thank you so much, Peg!

Creamy Chicken on Linguine

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2012
I'm torn about reviewing this recipe. At first I made it exactly according to the directions, but found it lacking in flavor and visual appeal. Then the next day I took the refrigerated leftovers and began my augmentation. I reheated the sauce and chicken and added shredded Swiss cheese, seasoned salt and freshly ground black pepper. Once I poured this over the hot linguine I topped it with Parmesan cheese (in addition to what's in the original recipe) and chopped parsley. I could have tried other ingredients but these were what I had on hand and thought might taste good. It worked! I served this the next day to a friend who came over for lunch and he loved it! Not sure if I'll ever make it again though.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2012
I made this the other night for a friend and my nieces (ages 10 and 14). My nieces can be VERY picky so I was careful to choose something to make that I thought might please their palates. Well--winner, winner, chicken dinner! This was a huge hit with everybody! I fatally cracked my slow cooker insert (long story) so I wound up cooking this in a large pot on the stove, making the necessary timing and temp adjustments (which I successfully guessed at!). The only hard part (not really) was cubing all that chicken which I tackled when the breasts were still slightly frozen. I served this over cooked egg noodles and had delicious Jersey produce as the sides: corn on the cob and cucumber & tomato salad. I served cubed fresh watermelon for dessert. Did I mention zucchini bread?! My nieces have requested I make this chicken recipe again very soon!

Crab Quiche

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2012
Mmm-mmm! Great both warm from the oven or cold from the fridge. This is one of the tastiest crab quiches I've ever made. Sometimes I use imitation crab and sometimes, real crab. Perfect either way!

Unbelievably Easy Slow Cooker Black Forest Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2012
This is killer easy and really delish! Especially wonderful with whipped cream and/or vanilla ice cream. Just keep the four basic ingredients in your pantry and anytime you need a no-fuss dessert, you're in business! Let it cook for you while you're busy pulling the rest of the dinner together and readying the house for company. How wonderful!

Chocolate Yule Log

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2012
I first made this yule log for a Christmas 2010 party and it was a huge hit! I think the mocha filling is what makes this recipe special. I love the sponge cake. My best friend tells me to this day that this is the best dessert she has ever eaten! I made marzipan mushrooms ahead of time for decoration and sprinkled the finished cake with powdered sugar to look like snow. This recipe is now in my treasured Christmas file and I hope to make it every year from now on.

Red Potato Bites

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2012
I have been meaning to rate this recipe for a while. OMG! So very good. This is the kind of appetizer that literally makes my mouth water in anticipation! I make them just as the recipe describes, but one can experiment and have fun with variations on the theme.

Spinach and Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2012
I was excited to serve this salad at the Easter dinner I attended. I always want to find a way to give five stars, but in this case I find I cannot. I followed this recipe exactly! In fact, I made a special trip to the supermarket the night before to buy every ingredient fresh, not just the spinach and strawberries, but also the paprika and both sesame and poppy seeds, because I did not want to rely on what had been in my spice cupboard for a while. I even made sure to get white wine vinegar, and not white vinegar. On the side I had mandarin orange segments and sugared pecans available for anyone who wanted to add them to the salad. I mixed the dressing well and added it at the last moment. The final result? The salad was ok, just not great as I was led to expect from reading the other reviews. I won't be making it again. Sorry.

Irish Potato Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2012
Made this for the Saint Patrick's Day party I went to last night. It was delicious! People are very surprised when you tell them it's made with two cups of mashed potatoes! (By the way, I used instant mashed potatoes and it came out great.) Terrific recipe; thanks!

Whipped Cream

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
I have to double or triple the sugar amount to achieve the desired sweetness; otherwise, a good basic recipe. It is critical to start with cold beaters and bowl.

Green Onion Ranch Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
I wish I could give this a 4.5 rating, but since I can't, I rounded it up to 5 stars. The dip was very good, but not one I would RAVE about. I'm a big fan of anything made with dry ranch mix... in fact, I've invented or modified a bunch of recipes just to incorporate that very ingredient. I doubled this recipe, and in doing so learned a very important fact: that much dip does NOT fit into a normal blender receptaclel It must be done in two batches. Also, I made it the day before to allow the flavors to marry. They did; the dip was a big hit served with crudite, chips and crackers; and I am very pleased I tried it! Happy New Year!

Swiss Chicken Casserole I

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
Made this earlier tonight for dinner. It was an immediate hit with everyone! I served it over hot, buttered egg noodles with corn, a green salad and an oven-hot loaf of crusty ciabatta bread on the side. This casserole is very easy to make and a definite palate-pleaser! Will make again often.

Delicious Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
I have made this pumpkin bread multiple times and in three different ways: plain, with walnuts, and with raisins. And, I have made it with both fresh and canned pumpkin. It is, in my never-to-be-humble opinion, the GREATEST pumpkin bread recipe on planet earth! Instead of three smaller pans (7"x3"), I use two regular sized loaf pans (5"x9"). This quick bread is a MUST for every baker's recipe file!

Swiss Cheese Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
How great is this meatloaf?! Love the idea of Swiss cheese... in fact, just about ANY melted cheese topping on a meatloaf makes my mouth water. A winner!

CheckerBoard Cookies I

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
Make these cookies the next time you're having invited company and you'll hear wows and raves! These are really great-looking (and great-tasting!) cookies. They are not hard to make once you get the hang of it and I think Rosina gave perfect instructions. One variation you can try is to wrap each fully-formed square log (which already has the two chocolate and two plain logs in it) in a sheet of either plain or chocolate dough before then wrapping in foil and refrigerating overnight. (I make a double batch of cookies just for the extra "wrapping dough.") The finished cookies will then have a border around the checkerboard pattern which looks very sophisticated!

Spirit Balls

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2007
This is a classic recipe. One can substitute rum or brandy for the bourbon, or any of many other liquors or liqueurs! These spirit balls are awesome!
