French Baguettes

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
What a fabulous recipe! Tastes better than the French Bread loaves you buy in the grocery store bakery! I don't have a bread machine, so I had to proof the yeast and knead by hand, and also used all-purpose flour instead of bread flour. At first I wasn't sure, because the top was not as crispy as I usually like, but once I started eating it, I realized it was perfect as is, and now I'm sad I froze the other loaf, because I wanted more! (FYI-I froze the other loaf as dough before the second rising. To defrost, I leave on the counter, then place on a cookie sheet to rise, then bake as directed.)

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
This was not our favorite recipe, sorry. It used more brown sugar than I am used to using in a cookie, so it made it a little more bitter than I would have liked. They weren't bad, and if you like the flavor of brown sugar this recipe would work really well for you.

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2009
I used a pork shoulder roast, and seared it on the stove before adding it to the crock pot. I used Sweet Baby Ray's Original BBQ Sauce, which was perfect. I skipped the oven step and just cooked it on high for 5 hours, shredded it, then cooked it on low another 3 hours...I'm not usually a pork person, but this was great! This will be my go-to recipe whenever pork roasts are on sale, thanks!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
My husband made these for breakfast this morning, and they were good, but a little on the dense side. That being said, I think we might try the batter for waffles next time.

Mama D's Italian Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
This bread had the most AMAZING texture--it was like something you'd find at a good Italian restaurant--crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside. The flavor itself was the slightest bit bland, but I was willing to overlook that since I loved the texture so much. I don't have a spray bottle, so I got a pastry brush wet, and flicked the bristles to moisten the bread every 5-10 minutes of cooking time. I think I ended up cooking this for about 20 minutes. I made 4 loaves instead of 3, and froze half of the dough between the second and third risings. This way, I just defrost the dough, set it into shape, allow to rise, and cook. Thank you for such a wonderful recipe!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
These were really good. My husband especially liked them since I added chocolate chips to his! I ended up using 4 regular sized bananas, and added maybe 1/4 tsp of vanilla to the crumb topping. Very good.

Papa Drexler's Bavarian Pretzels

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
These were insanely good!!! I portioned the dough into 8 pretzels, and they were still a good size. They were gone a few hours after I made them...my husband ate 4 in less than 10 minutes. I'm so glad I found this recipe!

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
These were good shrimp! I only had 1 lb. of shrimp, but kept the marinade the same and it was perfect. I didn't skewer them, but grilled them up for shrimp burritos instead.

Tasty Buns

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2009
These worked well as buns for our BBQ Chicken Sandwiches. Although the recipe did not specify, I had to knead the bread because it was very sticky. Very good for buns, though I would not use them as dinner rolls as they would be a bit too bland for that use.

Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2009
I had never made pea soup before, so I was a little skeptical. But, I was very pleasantly surprised. Just the right amount of veggies, and not too thick like some pea soups. I added about a cup and a half of cooked, diced ham instead of meat from the ham hock, because there didn't seem to be much meat on there. I really loved the addition of the potatoes as well, and it was quite flavorful even though I omitted the onions. Will definitely make this again!

Ooey-Gooey Cinnamon Buns

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2009
These were good, although pretty time consuming, and I thought they could have used a little more filling. I made a vanilla powdered sugar icing to go on top.

Michael's Foccacia Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
I am SO glad I made this! I played around with the spices, but this was awesome. I only had 1 package of yeast, so I had to cut the recipe in half, and it was perfect. Thank you!

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
I don't have a bread machine, and the 1st time I made these I didn't read the helpful reviews on how to convert the recipe to making it by hand. Big mistake! I wanted to try these again a couple days later because I knew they would be good if I could figure out how to do it by hand. Excellent bread, and thanks to the helpful reviews I was able to make a batch of delicious rolls and soft pretzels!

Home-Fried Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2009
These were pretty good...I baked instead of fried them. Shook up all the ingredients in a Ziploc with a bunch of olive oil to coat, then put them in the oven at 425 for about 30-40 minutes, turning once.

Honey Crunch Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
I really liked the honeyed pecan topping, but I kept getting little rubbery pieces of scrambled egg in the filling. I used my own crust, and next time I would probably only use 3 eggs. The flavor was very good, though.

Spiced Sweet Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
This was so good! I made this last night, my guests raved, and it only survived the 4 of us! I served it with pita chips and sliced french baguette slices. I made another batch this morning for myself!

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
This was delicious! I simmered the apples in the filling instead of pouring the filling over the top, and also added a teaspoon of vanilla. The best apple pie I've ever had!
