Apple Strudel Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2013
Tasty and moist. I only added 1t cinnamon to the wet mixture, and changed to 1/2c white sugar and 1/2c brown sugar. White sugar would work fine if you don't have brown. I always prepare wet mixture first when baking, to allow for all ingredients to come to room temp. I used 2 med. Fuji apples, peeled and diced in very small pieces, which came to 2c apples. 1)In a medium bowl, mix apples with sugar to allow them to macerate while preparing other ingredients. In a small bowl whip up to 3 eggs (for extra moisture) with vanilla, as if you were whipping scrambled eggs, then add to apple mixture. Mix in 1 t cinnamon, and blend well. 2)In another bowl, sift flour and dry ingredients through a wire mesh food strainer, and blend well. Make a deep well in the flour mixture, and add the wet batter, mix together well. 3)I always use my hands when making crumb topping, smoothing out any hard lumps of brown sugar. 4)Use cupcake liners if you have them, rather than greasing the pan. If your oven tends to run hot, turn temp. down to 350. This is a very good, basic recipe. You can add raisins, chopped walnuts, or use a few over-ripe bananas in place of apples the next time around.

Strawberry Rhubarb Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2008
Delicious! - is the word my family used over and over again after eating this cake. I used ingredients that were available at home; a pint of fresh strawberries, sliced and sweetened with sugar; a can of pineapple slices, drained and cut into tidbit size pieces to replace the rhubarb; 3 eggs (instead of two) with 2% milk and a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in place of buttermilk; and I Can't Believe It's Not Butter (margarine) instead of butter. I also increased vanilla extract to 1 tablespoon. It all worked wonderfully together. Great recipe!

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2008
Delicious! I read the recipe and thought their were too many liquid ingredients for the amounts of broccoli and cheese, so I modified the recipe as follows: I boiled the broccoli florets in salted water until tender, then drained. In a 2 quart soup pot, sauteed one small, chopped yellow onion in approx. 3 heaping Tablespoons margarine until translucent. Added the broccoli and 2 cans of chicken broth to the pot. Brought the ingredients to a slow boil, then turned to low heat and added the pound of cubed Velveeta, stirring until melted. Sprinkled with granulated garlic to taste. Mixed 3 heaping Tablespoons cornstarch with one cup milk, and added to the soup to thicken. This was more than enough for my family of four. Great recipe!

Spinach Dip with Water Chestnuts

Reviewed: May 31, 2008
I've been making this dip for several years. I use 1 cup mayo and 8oz. of sour cream, (16oz. of sour cream seems a bit much.) I also use Knorr's powdered leek soup, and have never used the green onions. You can carve out the middle of a small, round french bread loaf and place the dip within the loaf. Cut the bread that was taken out of the loaf into cubes and serve with the dip so nothing is wasted. It is delicious; there's usually nothing left over but the crumbs!

Famous Chicken Adobo

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2007
My Filipino family's chicken adobo recipe is very similar. We use 1/4 cup red wine vinegar, 1/2 cup soy sauce, 1 cup water, 2 bay leaves, and omit pepper. A generous seasoning of granulated garlic can also be used in place of garlic cloves. A nice variation is also adding a little ground ginger. Delicious over steamed white rice!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2007
Very moist and very tasty! I used 4 bananas in this recipe (only because I had 4 overripe bananas on hand)and added a few ingredients from a family favorite banana bread recipe: 1 cup chopped walnuts, 1 tsp. vanilla and 1 tsp. cinnamon to the muffin mixture. I also used oil in place of butter. To the crumb topping I added 1 TBL. flour with a little extra margarine, increased the cinnamon to 1/2 tsp. and mixed the ingredients until crumbly. I added the topping during the last 7 minutes of baking time. Total baking time for 12 muffins was 22 minutes. This recipe would be excellent with or without the topping. Delicious!

Teriyaki Steak

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2007
This has become a favorite marinade in our house - for steaks, chops, ribs, and chicken. We use 1 cup teriyaki sauce, 1 cup soy sauce, 3 TBL red wine vinegar, a generous amount of granulated garlic and ground ginger (or crushed garlic and crushed ginger in jars). It's a 5 star recipe with these simple changes. Everyone asks for the recipe.

French Toast I

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2007
5 stars with a few changes: I doubled the eggs, and used just a splash of milk for a thicker batter. I didn't include the nutmeg and eliminated the salt. I melted margarine in the skillet over medium heat and sprinkled a little extra cinnamon on both sides of the bread while cooking. Family loves this recipe! Very easy and very tasty.

Sarge's EZ Pulled Pork BBQ

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2007
Delicious! I trimmed the layer of fat from the bottom of the roast - this is easier to do when the roast is partially frozen. I poked several holes in the pork halves with a meat fork; added paprika and granulated garlic to the rub - exact quantities were 2TBL paprika, 2 TBL salt, 1TBL granulated garlic. Once rub was applied, I sprinkled roast with black pepper. I increased the coffee to 1/3cup and cooked on high for 6 hours. I added baby carrots during last hour of cooking time, and thickened the sauce with 3 TBL corn starch mixed in a small bowl of ice cold water. Mix the cornstarch until completely dissolved and pour into slow cooker. It will thicken as it heats. I served this roast with steamed white rice. My husband, kids and grandkids said it was the best roast they'd ever eaten. We'll use the leftovers for shredded pork sandwiches or shredded pork tacos. This recipe is a keeper!

Deviled Eggs II

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2007
Good basic recipe. I added more mayo to give a creamy texture; used just a dash of vinegar, and added granulated garlic. The family enjoyed this dish with these changes.

Applesauce Cake IV

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2007
Very easy, very moist, and very tasty recipe. I omitted raisins only because I didn't have any in the pantry; and added 1 tsp. vanilla. The cake baked perfectly in exactly 50 minutes using a 9 inch square pan. I sprinkled a little powdered sugar on top before serving. My husband devoured it.

Orange Glorious I

Very Good! After experimenting, I now use 1/2 cup sugar or Splenda, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. I was looking for a recipe that tasted like Orange Julius. This is it! Grandkids enjoy it.

Bread and Celery Stuffing

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2006
Excellent stuffing! I've made this stuffing for several years, experimenting a little each time. I now add 2 Granny Smith apples - peeled, chopped and sauteed with the onion and celery; 1 cup chopped walnuts; and for a meat variety I fry up 1 pkg. of ground Jimmy Dean Breakfast Sausage with sage, drain fat, then add the sausage to the bread crumbs before adding broth. The vegetables, apples and sausage will moisten the bread somewhat. For beginners, add broth slowly while mixing the stuffing so bread does not become too wet or soggy. I usually use less than 1 can of chicken broth. (You can add any leftover broth to your gravy.) Family and friends devour this stuffing! Grandkids love it! UPDATE Nov.2008: I now include 1 small 6 oz. bag of craisins with the above ingredients. Delicious.

Spanish Rice II

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2006
My husband gives this dish 5 stars with some minor changes. I used 1 can chicken broth in place of water; added 1 small yellow wax pepper - seeded and chopped fine, and 1/2 red bell pepper. I cut the chili powder in half , and added 1/2 tsp. ground cumin. Very good!

Angel's Old Fashioned Beef Stew

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2006
Excellent Stew! I've been cooking variations of stew for several years and added a few of my favorite ingredients to this recipe. I used a diced yellow onion in place of boiling onions, and eliminated the celery due to personal preference. I added a can of Italian seasoned tomatoes, 2 bay leaves, and 2 tsp. paprika. I thickened with cornstarch in place of flour; and added salt to taste at the end. My picky husband said it was the best stew he'd ever eaten. Great recipe with some very minor changes!

American Potato Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2006
Excellent recipe! I eliminate the bell pepper and add granulated garlic to seasoning. The garlic flavor makes the dish! I top with paprika, parsley flakes and halved, hard boiled eggs for presentation.

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake V

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2006
My husband and I had a craving for cake tonight so I went looking for an easy recipe using items I had in my pantry. I used white cake mix in place of yellow. I didn't use coconut or cherries as I didn't have them on hand; and I substited the can of pineapple rings for 1 can of mandarin oranges, along with the 1 can of crushed pineapple. Baked in a well buttered 9x13 inch pan for 45 minutes. Very easy and very good!

Iced Mocha Fusion Shake

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2006
Excellent with a few minor changes. I eliminated the vanilla extract and the sugan; added a generous squeeze of chocolate syrup and used 5 large ice cubes as I didn't have crushed ice. I also used 3 heaping Tablespoons of the Caffe D'Vita Mocha mix from Costco. Very good.

Very Good! I used 1/2 cup of 2% milk and 3 cups of French Vanilla ice cream; added sliced and chilled strawberries that I'd sweetened with Splenda, and 1 sliced banana. This made enough for 2 tall serving glasses. Great drink on a hot day!
