Cranberry Orange Loaf

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2006
Oh My God! This is a beautiful bread, both in taste and aesthetic. I followed the suggestion of another reviewer and mixed up a simple glaze of orange juice, vanilla and confectioners sugar, drizzling it over the top while the loaf is still hot. Gives it a gorgeous shine, and an initial sweet taste with the after tart of the cranberry. If you're looking for a nice large loaf, for breakfast or afternoon tea...THIS IS THE ONE YOU'RE LOOKING FOR! I will never use any recipe but this from now on...not even Nana's!

Beer Batter for Fish

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2007
We really liked this. I halved the recipe, used Sam Adams Summer Ale, and added both Old Bay and Blackened Seasoning. The batter fried up crispy and light. Will make again!

Peanut Butter Fudge Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2006
This cake caused arguments in my house. "What do you mean you ate the last piece!?" arguments. It was absolutely dense, rich, and delicious. I did make a few changes. I didn't spread the peanut butter layer alone; I was mixing the icing when we got a call and had to leave the house quickly, when we returned, the icing had hardened in the mixer, so I added the peanut butter directly to it and some light cream to bring it to the right consistency and voila! I will definitely make this cake many, many times, especially when I eat the last piece! Try this, you won't be disappointed.

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2008
I love these. very few changes made here: I added 1/2 tsp madagascar vanilla, 1/2 cup golden raisins and 1/2 cup california raisins and used organic sugar. They turned out fluffy, and sweet.

Strawberry Rhubarb Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2008
This coffee cake is not only delicious, it's very pretty - pink peeks out from under the crumby sweet topping. The cake itself is very light with a tender crumb. I did have to make a few changes; used fresh strawberries (approx. 15 ounces), and because I didn't have any buttermilk I subbed light cream with a touch of lemon juice added. I also added nutmeg to the batter, used brown sugar instead of white for the crumb topping and also added cinnamon to it. Served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, this was absolutely satisfying. I will most certainly be making this again.

Blueberry Lemon Loaf

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2009
This loaf is moist, tangy, and fresh tasting. The ingredient list is typical pantry fair, and the preparation is both quick and easy. The resulting loaf is both aesthetically pleasing and quite appetizing. The fact that this recipe uses a mere 1/2 a stick of butter is a definite plus. I will be making this over and over again, and enjoying it each and every time.

Rocky Road Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2006
Way too many marshmallows in this one. The ice cream itself was delicious though. We may try to add Fluff instead of marshmallows next time, have more a ribbon than fluffy flecks.

Beef or Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2008
I made this marinade exactly as submitted except I minced vadalia onion and used it on sirloin tips bound for the grill. The marinade was delicious with a slight bite thanks to the pepper and perfect amount of sweetness thanks to the honey. I think I'll try adding some paprika next time to add just a touch of that smoke taste.

Fudge

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2007
Does it get any easier than this? I made chocolate peanut butter fudge by using half milk chocolate chips and half peanut butter chips. The fudge is pretty enough to give as a gift in a hand-painted gingerbread box, and delicious enough to treat myself!

Apple Crisp III

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2008
My husband doesn't enjoy oats in his crisps, and so luckily I could turn to allrecipes, as usual, for some help. We both really enjoyed this recipe, although, when I make it again I will change a few things. As is, the recipe is worth 4 stars. I used macoun apples, which were perfect, but I used all white sugar, as listed in the recipe, and wish I had gone with previous reviewers suggestions and used half white and half brown sugar, just for that golden look if not for flavor. Also, I think I'll used apple cider or apple juice in place of the water next time. I will come back and revise this review when I make it again, and being apple season here in New England, that should be rather soon!

Dash's Donair

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2008
Not bad at all! Growing up in Halifax Nova Scotia, and being transplanted to Boston Mass in 2000 forced me to leave these sinful treasures behind....until now! They're not exact, but !!! They are close enough in a pinch! Sure beats Baked Beans!

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2008
As far as meatloaf goes, this isn't the one the Connor family dreads on Roseanne reruns. Every ingredient is sure to be in your pantry. It smells fabulous, spicy and savory, as it cooks, and dances that sweet and sour dance on your tongue. You'll want seconds, and maybe even thirds!

We served this at our church's annual holiday fair to rave reviews and then again in our kitchen this evening...again, rave reviews. We don't change a thing, why would we, this recipe is perfect as is.Update: Jan 14: Served again for dinner, and it's still incredible!

Cordon Bleu Chicken Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2007
My husband requested this for dinner and I begrudgingly agreed. That was before I knew both how easy they would be to make and how absolutely delicious they would be! Even my Mother-in-law, who made a surprise visit, commented on how impressed she was...who can ask for better than that?!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2007
I made these with chopped Granny Smith apples in place of the blueberries and they were wonderful! I also made them with cinnamon chips in place of the blueberries which made a perfect coffeecake muffin. I should mention, I did make them with the blueberries and they were superb. I think I may try fresh raspberries next. I always add a teaspoon of vanilla, adding it to the milk before measuring.

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2007
I made only 1 change; I halved the sugar called for, only adding 1/3 cup and it was plenty sweet. This recipe made two beautiful, huge, and delicious loaves of bread. The dough was a little hard to work with at first, but came along pretty well. After rising, I was amazed at how light and fluffy without holes. Highly recommended.

Bread didn't rise, even after following the "rules schmules" offered by this "master baker". VERY disappointed with this one.

Easy Alfredo Sauce I

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2008
Okay, to the submitter: THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! This sauce makes enough for 2 lbs of pasta, my family loves it, and it's easy enough for my teenager to make for herself! This recipe couldn't be easy, yet maintains the integrity of the more complicated alfredos...no need to bend over backward ever again, this is the best!

Sugar Coated Pecans

Reviewed: May 10, 2008
These are fabulous! I made them to add to a strawberry and spinach salad for that little extra wow factor. I followed the recipe as written with one exception; I added 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper for a little spicy bite, and I'm so glad I did. These I will be making often, very often!
