Easy to Remember Pie Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
Definitely easy to remember! Easy to make, as well. I used this crust as the crust for the Sour Cream Chicken Quiche on here. Very light and flaky. Just a note: I didn't end up using all of the water, when making pie crust--like bread dough--the humidity can affect the amount of liquids you need, so go slow and don't be afraid to use less or more water. Thanks for the recipe!

Quiche

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2011
So easy! I made this for a breakfast meeting and there was absolutely none of it left when we went to clean up from the meeting. I decided to use a can of chopped tomatoes instead of the pimentos just because, and it worked wonderfully. I used Pie Crust IV from this site for the pie crust and it worked well. Thanks for the recipe!

Best Pork Chop Marinade

Reviewed: May 26, 2014
Very nice. I used this on about 6 small pork chops that hubs grilled for Memorial Day. I marinated them overnight and they turned out excellent. Very flavorful, and hubs didn't even complain about the brown mustard in this. Surprisingly, I had everything on this list in the house so I didn't change anything. Thanks for the recipe!

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
Yum! I really like these muffins. I'm not a big fan of pumpkin pie, but I love pumpkin in breads or other desserts, so this was right up my alley. Although a bit time consuming, these are worth it. They could use more spices like allspice and nutmeg, I suppose, but I still like them as is. Good thing, since I got 24 muffins out of this. We had company over today and they ate some, and I'll take some to work, but we still will have some to gobble up ourselves. I really like the combo of pumpkin, cheesecake, and streusal topping. Thanks for the recipe!

Olive Oil Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2014
Very nice bread. The inside is soft and the outside is crusty like a French or Italian loaf--and I made regular loaves in my bread pan. Perfect! It is tasty as well. I doubled it and had to add a bit of water. Loved it and will make again. Thanks for the recipe!

Chocolate Yum Yum Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2013
This is very rich and heavy, but the chocolate lovers I know really enjoyed it. My coworker asked for a chocolate cake for her birthday and she got it. Very easy, too, but incredibly heavy. I greased a bundt pan exceedingly well and it was still hard to get out of the pan. I decided not to make the frosting, so I can't speak to that. Since I made in a bundt pan, it took closer to 1 hour 20 minutes. I baked at 350. Thanks for the recipe!

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Pizza Loaf

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2013
Hubs loved this. I didn't really but we'll go by his opinion bc I'm not a fan of buffalo chicken anything, and I really made it for him. I made the bread in the bread maker--it's what I do to multi task most of the time, and I added about a 1/2 c more flour to keep it from being too sticky. This was really easy, until it came time to get it out of the slow cooker--the recipe submitter's slow cooker must run a bit cooler than mine, since I had crust starting to brown and sticking to the slow cooker. So, I couldn't really flip it out without trying to cut at the crust, which made a mess. Next time, I'll use a liner, spray more, and that should work better. However, taste wise, it's lovely (for hubs) if you love buffalo chicken. You can really taste it, and I used less since I had the "really hot" Frank's RedHot. Since hubs loved it, and I like how it worked, I'll make it again, next time making one for hubs with the buffalo chicken and one for me with something else. Thanks for the recipe!

Sugar Cookies with Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2011
I didn't make the buttercream frosting, so this review is only for the cookies. I made these for spiral snowman cookies, which are hand rolled then made into the shape of snowman by spiralling the roll. I just did a small test batch today; I'm going to make them with my friend and her 3 1/2 year old tomorrow. The dough is a tad crumbly and sticky, but that's easily dealt with by flour and chilling. The cookie itself is rather bland, but I'm not complaining. It will lend itself well to decorating. Thanks for the recipe!

Applesauce Doughnuts

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2013
These could be called applesauce spiced doughnuts; you taste more of the spices than the applesauce. I did have an idea that was going to happen, though, from all the reviews I read. I don't like frying foods; it's rather time consuming and I don't digest fried foods well. Instead of frying, I used my new Wilton doughnut pan to bake the doughnuts. It took about 6-7 minutes at 425 but they came out rather nice. I thought about dipping in sugar; but with baking I'd have to brush with something, perhaps butter or margarine, to accomplish that, and I wasn't in the mood last night. Maybe next time. This is a very forgiving recipe; I accidently switched the amounts of baking powder and baking soda and still got a decent batch of doughnuts. Thanks for the recipe!

Grilled Thai Tenderloin Cutlets

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2012
Delicious! I made a major mistake making these--grabbed what I thought was mint, but it was marjoram (I don't have either fresh--it's winter here) so I accidently used both 2 tbs marjoram and 2 tbs mint. It actually turned out great that way! I love the way mint enhances meat, and it went well with the rest of the ingredients. I used already cut pork cutlets (6 of them), and the marinade was just enough to cover them. I had very little marinade to dispose of, which is always a plus. I love the chili and other Thai flavors in this, and the mint gives it a nice earthy taste. I served these as cutlets with veggies and a roll; I'm sure they'd be great as sandwiches too. Thanks for the recipe!

Exploded Brussel Sprouts

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
Pretty good. I don't like brussel sprouts, but bf does, so I occasionally make them for him. I made this for him, subbing beer since he doesn't like wine. His only complaint is that the leftovers were a bit dry, so he added some water before microwaving. I must not have added enough beer to the concoction. My only complaint is the brussel sprouts take forever to prepare (taking the stems off, taking off the leaves . . .), but they always do. Thanks for the recipe, Laughing Magpie, and thanks for posting it, Patty Cakes!

Mom's Creamy Tortellini Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2013
Yum! Very good soup. It turns out like a rich tomato bisque, actually, with tortellini. I did make a few changes based on what we had on hand. I don't have or use half and half because I'm lactose intolerant; instead, I used skim milk (the only milk I can stomach) and it was fine, dried basil bc I have no fresh, and left out the sausage. Unlike others, I didn't modify the flour amount but did add a cup more chicken broth (my cans have two cups and I didn't want to deal with half a can) and left out the sausage. I think it would be good with sausage, but I don't think it's necessary. This soup has a lot going on already and is rich enough we didn't miss the meat. Very good with bread, or grilled cheese as we had it with. Thanks for the recipe!

Whole Grain Loaf

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
Yum! Very whole grain, but still light and fluffy. Score! I used wheat bran instead of germ (apparently I only have one or the other in this house!) and it worked well. I used the breadmaker for the dough then let rise and baked in the oven at 375 for 33-35 mins or so. I completely forgot to top with sesame seeds, but I also didn't make it into a ball--I decided to go with a loaf pan for today's bread foray. I'll try this again with a more rustic feel--it's really good bread! Thanks for the recipe!

Banana Crunch Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2012
Very nice cake. I used old, frozen bananas and doubled the recipe so I could have some at home and take it to work as well. I looked up how much 1 cup of bananas is--it says 3 bananas. I don't know if that's accurate or not, but that's what I used. People who think this is heavy may want to make sure they are using 2 cups of oat flour--I did as the submitter suggested and processed 1 1/4 c for the cup of oat flour and got a bit more, so I adjusted the flour accordingly. This took a while longer to bake, and I changed the temp to 350, but that's all good. Most things take a while in my oven, and all ovens are different. My coworkers raved over this cake. Thanks for the recipe!

Classic and Simple Meat Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
Very basic, and very nice. I didn't have cottage cheese so I subbed a little bit of plain greek yogurt instead. I didn't make as much of the cheese mixture as a result; I didn't want it to be too out of the ordinary. I used homemade lasagna noodles; since this is our first attempt at pasta, and they were thick, I added a cup of water and baked for twice as long. This turned out very well. Very delicious, basic lasagna. Satisfied hubs' craving for it. Thanks for the recipe!

Challah I

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2012
Incredibly easy, and a nice light flavor that makes everyone happy. I must make smaller loaves, though, bc I ended up with 3: 1 regular loaf, a round braid, and a huge braid. I could've divided this into 4 pieces and gotten regular sized loaves out of each piece. We had the regular loaf tonight for sandwiches and it worked perfectly. This bread rises extremely well and has a nice flavor, mild enough for sandwiches yet good enough to eat by itself. 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!

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!

Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookie Logs

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2012
Well, apparently I made these rather large, as I had to bake them for 20 minutes. And they didnt' fall apart, except one when I was a tad enthusiastic with the chocolate. But, they worked well enough so perhaps next time I'll roll out the dough then cut into pieces--that might work better for me. Still, very nice cookies. I love shortbread but am not a fan of chocolate so much--I think, however, they are a good addition to my cookie tins. Hubs enjoyed them. Thanks for the recipe.

Spring Cleaning Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
Nice, hearty cookies. Very delicious! I followed the recipe as is, and although I froze most of them for my cookie platters, I thought these were flavorful, very hearty, and not too sweet. Very good. Thanks for the recipe!
