Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
LOVE IT! Picky husband and toddler like it too! I made some substitutions though. I usually cringe when other people do this, but I wanted to make it a little healthier! To my credit, I didn't do much doctoring - I used fresh pumpkin instead of canned, applesauce instead of vegetable oil, cut 2/3 of the sugar, and substituted 1/2 of the flour with whole wheat flour. Lots less calories and lots healthier! I ate so much of this before dinner that I just didn't bother eatting dinner - I made up for it with this yummy bread!

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2009
We made this last night for a party we hosted for my husbands friends from work. I showed up late because I had to go get the ingreds, but it whipped together really quick and everyone was asking for the recipe! I liked it better with celery, it made the buffalo flavor pop a little more. I'm keeping this recipe for the next party!

Oatmeal Whoopie Pies

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
I usually make chocolate whoopie pies, but was looking for a recipe to use up some oatmeal. This recipe was quick, easy, and YUMMY! It got rave reviews from the guys my hubby works with - they say I am better than Little Debbie ;-)

Banana Bread - Quick Bread for Machines

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2008
I loved how easy this recipe was! Unfortunately I can't say the same for the taste. I grew up with incredibly moist and flavorful banana bread and I can't seem to find a match in a bread machine recipe. I used 3 bananas and I think that helped. I would probably make it again because of how easy it was. Also, I used the 58 minute quick cycle on my sunbeam and still had to put in the oven to finish baking.

Banana Nut Bread II

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2008
Dry & bland - not the old fashioned banana bread recipe I remember. I am new to using the bread machine, so maybe I just have to accept that the bread will be dry. I used the 58 minute quick bread setting on my sunbeam and had to put the bread in the oven to finish baking. Plus there were just too many ingredients. I also tried the "Banana Bread - Quick Bread for Machines" and that one is a little better, but still not satisfied.

Summer Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
I'm so glad I made this! I had second thoughts on combining dill with fruit, but this blend is wonderful! I cooked my chicken in garlic and molly mcbutter, didn't use as much mayo as the recipe called for, and doubled up on the nuts. I'll definitely be making this again!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
THE BEST!!! These turned out absolutely perfect and were very easy to make. My only complaint - I burned my tongue because I ate them too quickly out of the oven!

Chinese Chicken Rice Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2008
This was ok the first day, but could hardly choke it down the next day. I always follow the recipe exactly the first time I make something, so if I were to make this again (which I'm not planning on) I would follow the suggestions of what other reviewers have done to make this edible.

Great Grandma Johns' Pasties

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2008
Looks like a great recipe! I use my great-grandma's recipe who used to make pasties for the miner's in upper Michigan (da U.P., eh!) I am just writing to give a couple of suggestions. To keep the insides moist use lard or butter. Lard is what was traditionally used. You could also try using a 1/2 & 1/2 combination of pork and beef, that is what my recipe calls for. A modern twist to add some great flavor to the pasties (also a secret ingredient of a pasty shop in the U.P.) is onion soup mix. A whole package is a little bit too much unless you are making a huge batch, so go light until you have a feel for how much you like. Hope this helps!

Chocolate Mint Sandwich Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2008
WONDERFUL! I made a double batch, so it was a little time consuming and made lots of dishes, but was SO worth it! I agree with another reviewer that the frosting is a little runny, but I was also putting it on warm cookies, and probably a little too thick (you really don't need much frosing for these to work). To compensate I stuck them in the freezer, which I was planning to do anyways. They are quite the jaw breaker to chew out of the freezer, but that's the way we like them! If you don't plan on freezing these, make sure your cookies are completely cooled! Then ENJOY because these are y-u-m-m-y!

Ranch Dressing II

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2008
Tastes too much like mayonaise. I thought the spices would over-power the taste of the mayo, but they didn't. I might try this recipe again (I think the blend of spices might be right on) with buttermilk or sour creamm, but definitely no mayo!

Japanese Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2005
I used chicken breast instead of wings and pan fried the chicken instead of baking. This is a very good recipe. It will be used often for chinese night!

Chewy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2005
Just a little more flour and this recipe is perfect! My husband can't get enough of them! Everyone at his office loves them, too! I'll be adding this to my recipe collection.
