Venice High School Cherry Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2012
I baked these closer to 8 minutes, but I also made smaller cookies. They are very cute cookies, with a small amount of cherry flavor, but so easy, that they are easily made again with more. (I haven't tried, but they were so so easy, it can't be hard ;) I found my fork was sticking so I used some confectioner's sugar on my fork to help, and it did. Very cute, tasty little cookies. Thanks for the recipe!

Steamed Black Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2012
I was fascinated by this recipe and had to try it. I don't have coffee cans, and it would take forever in this house for me to get any (hubs is the only one who drinks it, and he doesn't drink that much of it), so I asked for suggestions on the buzz and someone suggested I use a bundt pan, so off I went, and started to make this recipe. I then realized it called for graham flour, not ww flour. I didn't have graham flour but did have ww flour, so mentally shrugged and used the ww flour. I added it all to the bundt pan and covered it tightly with 4 pieces of aluminum foil (someone said it might get moister in a bundt pan, and I used ww flour, which probably has more moister than that graham flour anyway) and happily boiled away for an hour. This bread came out perfectly in that hour. You wouldn't know from the bread itself that I steamed it; it tastes like a sweet (due to the molasses, I'm sure) quick bread. It's very good with butter, jam, or honey. Very fun to try, and maybe if I ever end up with a coffee can I'll try it as directed. Thanks for the recipe!

Uncle White's Bread Machine Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2012
Not bad, rather easy--measurements are perfect for a nice, light bread. I made rolls, as directed, but deviated and made 8 large sandwich rolls. I'm too impatient to make smaller rolls most of the time. I didn't brush with butter--or anything, and they came out soft and golden brown. Hubs enjoyed these, which means it must be a nice light bread. He's not a fan of heavier, chewy breads. I thought it baked up well. Thanks for the recipe!

Wheat and Barley Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2012
Very nice. Hubs insisted it smelled and tasted like bananas. I told him there were no bananas in it but he argued with me about it. I made something else with bananas today, so perhaps his taste buds were shot. I didn't think it tasted like bananas at all. I did use vanilla sugar . . .well, because I had it. Everything else I left the same. I thought this turned out to be a nice, dense bread with a light sweetness. It worked well as a complement to the carrot soup we had for dinner. I did make in crocks to make big muffins, and ended up with 4 large muffins that baked for 40 minutes. Thanks for the recipe!

Katrina's Banana Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2012
Very nice cake! I had 3 overripe bananas, and I felt like using them in something today instead of tossing them in the freezer like I do half the time. I had everything called for in this recipe, so I happily mixed away. Turned out perfectly baked in 45 minutes (amazing! My oven NEVER bakes it at the time directed!) and was very moist and flavorful. Doesn't need frosting or anything. Hubs enjoyed, as did our dog (he loves bananas, and was begging . . .). Thanks for the recipe!

Pressure Cooker Cream of Carrot Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2012
This makes a ton of soup, and let me try out my pressure cooker! I just got it for a present and was excited and a bit scared (that pressure thing kind of freaks me out, but anyway). I was skeptical that carrots, which take FOREVER for me to cook, would cook in 7 minutes. They so did! Awesome! As for the recipe itself, I added some more curry and salt and pepper at the end. I did leave out green onions (didn't have) and subbed sweet potatoes (already cooked, courtesy of my mother) at the end instead of potatoes, which I don't have. And as we are in the middle of a hurricane, I felt it was prudent not to go out in it for potatoes. I also didn't have cream, so I just put in half the amount of milk. Worked well--maybe not as thick as it would be with cream, but it was nice. I served with Wheat and Barley bread I'd made for dinner, and it was a nice, warm dinner on a cold, windy and rainy evening. Thanks for the recipe!

Moist Banana Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2012
Very good. I didn't do the streusal topping--I'd run out of steam by then, so just topped with a sprinkle each of cinnamon and brown sugar. Hubs and niece really enjoyed them; niece says 4 1/2 stars. Hubs says he'd like more banana flavor--but it was good as is, and he says he always would like more banana flavor. I don't have a flour sifter, so just put the wheat flour in the KA for a while and ran it--wasn't sure it'd work, but it did. Muffins came out moist and not at all dense. Thanks for the recipe!

Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2012
Very nice. And easy, which is always a plus! I tried these in little mini muffin tins, so I then used an 8x8 to make the rest--it took forever to bake, since I guess I really didn't use that much cream cheese! I did not have frozen strawberries, so I used fozen raspberries instead. I didn't have already sweetened, so I let then thaw, mixed with sugar, then mashed. Took them to work for a birthday celebration and everyone enjoyed them. thanks for the recipe!

English Muffin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2012
Pretty good. Easy to make too--as others did, I just used the bread machine. It definitely needs to be toasted for the flavor and nooks and crannies of the english muffin taste to come through, but it's a nice bread either way. It made 2 nice sized loaves. Thanks for the recipe--I baked at 375 for 40 minutes. Perfect!

Miracle Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2012
These were okay; pretty basic, decent rolls. I rarely roll out biscuit or roll dough bc I'm lazy, so I just shaped into rolls and baked. I noticed that if I let them rise, they rose outward. If i just immediately baked, they rose up in hte oven. These were rather crumbly, and not very flavorful, so I was a tad disappointed in that. It's hard to put butter or jam on crumbling bread. Thanks for the recipe.

Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2012
Not bad, but a bit bland, and I used onion powder (we don't do onions much in our house), garlic powder, and salt and pepper both with the eggs and the hash browns. I also, as did others, baked the hash browns separately before adding in the egg. I did use homemade shredded potatoes--it gave me an excuse to use my new KA shreder attachment. :) In my experience, however, I usually have to bake potatoes much longer than most recipes indicate. I baked them the night before for 30 mins, then this morning poured the egg over and baked for almost an hour. This worked well. Our only complaint, as I said before, is that it's still somewhat bland so we used ketchup. I'd add more spices next time. Thanks for the recipe!

Roast Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2012
Very nice. I usually have to bake potatoes a lot longer than recipes call for, so I was pleasantly surprised when I only had to bake an extra ten minutes, for a total of 30 minutes. These were nice potatoes, not too difficult, and a lovely complement with the steak and mixed veggies hubs made for dinner. Thanks for the recipe!

Nina's Texas Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2012
This wasn't bad, but rather spicy, and I cut the cayenne and chili powder down. I didn't add the sugar, but did put in the honey--I guess it's a good thing I did, although I was worried about making it sweet. It didn't. I didn't have sirloin so just left it out and halved the sausage. Not bad, but I'd cut the chili powder even more and leave out the cayenne if I made it again. Hubs stated it was too spicy for him, so we'd have to adjust. Thanks for the recipe.

Berry Oatmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2012
Very nice muffins. I made 6 jumbo muffins with this and baked for 30 mins; there really isn't a ton of batter to make more muffins. I believe the submitter who says it only makes 12 muffins! I left out the walnuts but otherwise followed the recipe, and these turn out to be a hearty, blueberry muffin with more substance than most. Hubs and I both liked them. Thanks for the recipe!

Apricot Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2012
Nice muffins. They are pretty plain, cakelike muffins, so unless you want to add other spices that's what you'll end up with. I did add some vanilla, which was a good complement. I pulled out and chopped what I thought were apricots from the freezer; nope, they were peaches. Oh, well, they still make a nice light muffin. Obviously I skipped the step of plumping them up in hot water since they weren't dried. Thanks for the recipe!

Refrigerator Pickles

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2012
Very easy, and very good. I was skeptical these would work after mixing it up--not a lot of liquid at all. But, with letting it sit in the fridge, the liquid is pulled from the cucumbers and you have a lovely marinade. I like bread and butter, but dill are my absolute fave, so I was not as impressed as hubs, but I am thrilled I found something to help keep my cukes from going bad too quickly. Tasty, too. Thanks for the recipe!

Mexican Egg Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2012
Not bad. I tossed some leftover stuff I was trying to use up into the eggs: chopped turkey lunch meat and chopped avocado, and I really liked the avocado in this. It was a cool complement to the spicy enchilada sauce. I also put in some cumin, salt and pepper and parsley. Hubs doesn't really like peppers, and I am not a fan of mushrooms, so I just did half mushroom and half pepper topping. Worked out well. Hubs told me he wasn't so sure about the texture of this, nor is he apparently a fan of the enchilada sauce, but otherwise he thought it was fine. I thought it was an interesting take on a breakfast casserole, but I think I prefer others. Thanks for the recipe!

Fire and Ice Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2012
Very nice pasta. I really didn't have 5 1/2 pounds of tomatoes, so I just used what I had and then adjusted the rest accordingly. I was using the last of my sun dried tomatoes in the jar (I couldn't tell if it wanted them in oil or just dried--I used the ones in oil) so I used the remainder of the oil in the jar wtih the tomatoes as well. I just decreased the olive oil I put in. I only sprinkled red pepper flakes (1 tspn wouldve been too much for us) and used green olives with pimento, not sliced so hubs could eat around them as he doesn't like olives. We used fusilli pasta for this, and I just put in enough olive oil to make the sauce oily enough to stir. All in all, I guess I changed several things but the main change was the amount of tomatoes and olive oil. This still was lovely with fusili pasta, and we have some leftovers to eat this weekend. Thanks for the recipe!

Slow Cooker Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2012
Not bad. I still prefer my mom's recipe, but this was fun to try, and hubs loves shepherd's pie so he was game for it. I didn't really layer but mixed the meat, gravy, and veggies all together. I just used a full bag of frozen mixed veggies. I added a bit too much gravy, but I made my own (don't get too impressed--I used a gravy mix since gravy is one of those things I've never mastered) and wasn't really sure how much equaled a jar. I then just topped with a lot of mashed potatoes, put my oval slow cooker on low and let it cook for about 3 1/2 hours. When I saw the gravy bubbling up over the potatoes, I figured it was done and I was right. No mushiness, and a very filling dinner. It could perhaps use some garlic and onion as well as other spices, but it was good as is. I never add extra salt and pepper since hubs usually does that at the table before he even tries his food. We have lots leftover but as I said, hubs loves it so it'll be eaten even with just the two of us. thanks for the recipe!

Easy Key Lime Pie I

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2012
Not bad, but I do have to agree with everyone who stated that there is not enough lime flavor. I'll add lime zest next time, but this is easy enough it's worth trying again. I made my own crust with leftover cookie crumbs and melted butter, then prebaked for about 18 mins at 375. I also halved this recipe since I had half a can of sweetened condensed milk after using the first half for another recipe. I used mini pie pans we received as wedding gifts and half the recipe made 4 pies. The baking time was perfect. Thanks for the recipe!
