Gingerbread Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2010
I've been looking for a recipe like this! I did substitute the shortening for a stick of butter. YUM. I like that there's only one stick of butter though in the whole cake. Very moist and flavorful, simple to make. Also a side benefit, aromatherapy for the home while it's cooking! I didn't have an orange so I just made a simple powdered sugar glaze. As Emeril would say.. Happy Happy!

Slow Cooker Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
Why make this in the crock pot when you can stick it in the oven? hours of AROMATHERAPY! Wow! Also wonderful flavors. I always double the cinnamon for the same reason. Really good. I'm an apple crisp officianado and wanted to try a slow cooker version. I'm glad I did. Also, you free up space in your oven for your main dish. Dessert is no fuss! Thanks for posting Rosie!

I've tried making candied walnuts several times and always failed, but this was so easy and sooo tasty! I have a marginal candy thermometer but still managed this easily! Thank you for the recipe!

Cream of Tomato Gorgonzola Soup

Reviewed: May 23, 2009
Loved this! I'm going to have a hard time going back to plain ol tomato soup, espcially because this was so easy to make. I had all the ingredients on hand, served it with grilled provolone sandwiches. I had half an onion on hand so I chopped that up with the garlic and sauteed them in a little butter, then added them to the soup. The flavor was fantastic!

Pumpkin Pie Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
What a delicious recipe with only a cup of oil for three loaves of bread it's perfectly moist, and crispy, not soggy as I've found with adding apple sauce. I'm enjoying a warm slice with a cup of tea as I write this! Absolutely wonderful. Thank you for sharing this!

Curried Brown Rice Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
There's a party in my tummy! I had leftover brown rice that has been made into something wonderful. What I like about this recipe is it's versatile. I didn't have some of the ingredients so I used a can of mandarin orages instead of apples. dried cranberries instead of raisins, red onion, pine nuts. Only had real mayo and no yogurt so I used sour cream. The curry powder is ingenious here. I did throw in a tablespoon of Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. I even thew in a half a can of black beans! Absolutely Amazing!

Pecan Pumpkin Pie I

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
Absolutely wonderful! I did use fresh pumpkin that I had grown in my garden. I prepped everything in my food processor. I liked how the topping came out. A fine crunch across the top of the pie. I didn't have any orange peel so I used a tablespoon of maple syrup. YUMMY!

Fresh Tomato Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2010
I have a bounty of fresh tomatoes from my garden, so I used beefsteaks. This was so delish! Small problem, beefsteaks are very juicy. Next time I'll use Romas also, I tossed a few cloves of fresh garlic into the cheese miixture, out of this world!

Grandma's Applesauce Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
Delicious! If this is what they ate during the great depression, the great depression was not as bad as they say! I was out of raisins so I used dried cherries, I chopped them first. How delicious! One thing I made a little mistake on, was the cake looked nice and golden brown, so I didn't test the center,and it was a little under done in the center. Another 10 minutes would have done the trick, it's a wonderfully moist cake, but it may need a little more time.

Apple Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
Enjoying this so much as we speak! Oh my gosh the sides are crispy the texture is perfect... One word, YUMMY. Very easy, I followed one reviewers advice and just creamed the butter and sugar. Now, I was short one apple, so I had to get creative and replaced that amount with sweet potato! Perfect. Also drizzled it with a powdered sugar glaze. Wow!

Pan Fried Swiss Chard

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2010
We're growing Swiss chard in our garden, and just today, it was ready to cut. I'm so glad I found this recipe. I haven't been crazy about Swiss Chard, and now I know why.. I didn't know the secret of bacon and garlic! We served this to my husband's parents. It was really fun to serve something so delicious that we grew ourselves. I forgot the lemon, but I did chop up a Vidalia onion and sauteed it with the garlic. YUM!

Pork and Green Chile Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2010
I cooked this as per directions, except I pre-cooked my own brown rice in the rice cooker and put it in at the end. Just wonderful! Our grown son stopped by and when he tasted this, he gave it ten stars and took a Tupperware container home with him.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
I'm enjoying one of these with a cup of tea as I write. Absolutely wonderful, the perfect afternoon snack with the right amount of sweet and salt. Soft and chewy. I simply used 2 sticks of butter instead of the shortening and margarine, otherwise I changed nothing. Thank you for the recipe!

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2010
I made this cake for my birthday today! My entire family said it was the best carrot cake they had ever tasted. I was tempted to add pineapple, then I decided not to change one thing in this recipe so I could honestly review it. If I had changed it, it would be a different recipe right? Absolutely wonderful. I'm looking forward to a slice tomorrow with a cup of tea. This is now the recipe I will use whenever I make carrot cake.

Turtle Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
I was very intimidated at the thought of baking a cheesecake but this was a gift to my husband for Valentines day. My family all agreed it was the best cheesecake they had tasted. I would only suggest having extra caramel, chocolate and pecans on hand to decorate the top as it is in the photo! Five stars for yummy!

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
I made a special trip to the store to make sure I had the exact ingredients. By the time I got home it was too late to use the slow cooker, so I tossed it all in a pot. I had leftover roast chicken. This was THE best chicken tortilla soup I've had. I'ts so easy too. Thanks!

Pat's Dumplings

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
The dumplings were just right, easy to make, I did use my food processor. I do wish I would have added more water since I live in the desert my dough is often dry, nonetheless, even though the dough was a little dry, the dumplings turned out perfect, I'm going to use this recipe from now on.

Golden Rum Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2008
This is a very delicious cake. I was hoping for some kind of thick caramel glaze, but decided to trust the recipe. The glaze did thicken a bit when it cooled, but I loved that it was thin enough to penetrate the cake and make a rich gooey crust that was to die for. The cake is perfectly moist. I wouldn't change a thing.

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2008
My family said these were the best cinnamon rolls they've ever had. I made them up the night before, and put them on parchment paper on a cookie sheet and set them in the fridge. I went to sleep thinking of how gorgeous they would be baked up in the morning.... I got up, let them rise, and well, they all opened up into very lose pinwheels and were very funny looking. We decided next time to put them in a 9x13 baking pan close together. We decided I should make these every Saturday night for a Sunday mornig treat.
