Tender Beef Brisket

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2012
I used this marinade for a brisket that had been cut into steaks. I had no time to marinate it, so i just poured the sauce on top and baked it at 400 for fifteen minutes on the first side, ten on the second. The meat came out deliciously flavorful and moist.

Dutch Apple Pie with Oatmeal Streusel

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
A delicious and flavorful pie. I baked the crust on 350 for ten minutes to keep it from getting soggy. The streusel topping helps it stand out from your average apple pie.

Pennsylvania Coal Region Barbecue

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
This gets five stars not only for ease but also for taste. The mustard is the secret - my family doesn't like mustard, but never realized it was in there and loved the kick it added. To make this healthier I used ground chicken instead of beef and subbed half the ketchup with tomato paste.

Fabulous Fried Cabbage

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2012
I had some cabbage that I needed to use up and decided to try this. Wow! What a hit. The kids all had seconds and would have thirds if I had had more. I used canola oil and sauteed an onion first before adding the broth and cabbage. Thanks for a winner.

Crispy and Creamy Doughnuts

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2011
These doughnuts are fabulous!! Light and creamy and so delicious. The only reason I'm not giving it five stars is because it's impossible to work with this dough. Until I tasted them I kept saying I'd never make them again. The dough was really soupy and we needed to add an outrageous amount of flour. Now I know that I'll definitely make these again, but next time I'll cut the milk to 1 cup so the liquid/flour ratio is more balanced.

Maria's Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2011
Easy and delicious. My husband loved this. Thanks to other reviewers for their great suggestions: 1. After you remove the veggies from the pan, brown the meat. Remove from pan, then cook sauce, then add veggies and meat. 2. Add 1/2 tsp. ginger and a dash of red pepper to sauce. 3. Make a slurry of 1 T. corn starch and 3 T. water and add to sauce. With all those changes, this is a really nice supper. For a pretty presentation use red and yellow peppers.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie I

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
This is very rich. My guests really liked it, I found the strong margarine taste a bit off-putting. I used no margarine in the peanut butter layer and it was great. Next time, I'll try cutting the margarine to 1/2 cup in the choc. layer. I layered this pie - choc., p.b., choc and it came out very pretty.

Hamburger Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2011
This is filling and warming, and the kids all liked it. Personally, I found it a bit bland. It's also quite oily, and that's after cutting the fat (I used oil instead of margarine). To make it healthier use ground chicken rather than beef, and throw in a few potatoes to have a meal-in-one.

Classic Goulash

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
Goulash is a misnomer, but this is a yummy beefaroni. The kids particularly enjoyed it.

Almond Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
Full-bodied and flavorful. I love lemon but I found this a little overpowering; next time I'd cut the lemon a bit. To make this healthier, cut the oil to 2 T. - one in the marinade, and one for the searing, and cut the butter entirely. You can cut the almonds in half by toasting them - the increased flavor from the roasting will make up for the missing quantity.

Pesto

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2011
Perhaps I shouldn't be reviewing this because I didn't actually make pesto - I was having a hard time finding fresh basil so I took this recipe one step further and used only parsley. It made an excellent "mock pesto" that tasted different but similar enough that I could use it in the pesto rolls I was making. I toasted the pine nuts for an extra kick. So simple, and so good.

Cioccolata Calda (Hot Chocolate Italian-Style)

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2011
I enjoyed this - it's a rich chocolaty cross between a drink and a pudding. My husband didn't care for it; he like drinks that are more liquid, and found this unpleasant. So it really boils down to the consistencies you're willing to experiment with. If you do make it, up the sugar to 3 T. and add a bit of vanilla and a dash of cinnamon.

Sweet Potato, Carrot, Apple, and Red Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2011
Excellent soup. I was a bit leery about the combination of vegetables, but I made this for a crowd of nearly 30 and they all loved it. I used olive oil instead of butter, chicken broth instead of vegetable broth, and added a few cloves of garlic.

Mushroom and Leek Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2011
Great soup. The fresh mushrooms and leeks lent it a sophistication that the adults appreciated and the orzo gave it a fun twist that made it appealing to the kids. A winner.

German Red Cabbage

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2011
I'm not sure what I did wrong, but I found this mediocre at best. The vinegar was overpowering, and there was nothing particularly appealing about this dish.

Zucchini Pineapple Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2011
YUM! I'm on a diet but like to have a filling, healthy snack each day, and this is it! To make it healthier (and less caloric) I used half whole wheat flour and replaced half the oil with applesauce. I also doubled the vanilla and added a dash of nutmeg. This bread will fill you for hours.

Stir-Fried Chicken With Pineapple and Peppers

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2011
This was easy and tasty. I didn't have mirin, so like other reviewers, I used sweet red wine with a bit of honey. I subbed a regular onion for the green one and added a handful of mushrooms. Perfect over rice.

Apple Pecan Cobbler

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2011
This is nice, but nothing special. I added nutmeg and cloves and used baking soda instead of baking powder.

Jimmbo's Garlic Knots

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2011
Whoa!! These things are out of this world! I used challah dough (any homemade white bread dough will do). I put all the ingredients (except for the cheese because I wanted this dairy free) in a big bowl and rolled the hot rolls around the bowl. Then I set them on a tray to dry. I served this with a big Greek salad and my family was raving!

Busy Day Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2011
Just two ingredients, but wow - so delicious! To make this into a whole meal, I put chunks of potato and slices of onion underneath the chicken. I seasoned them with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika. Then I poured the sauce over the potatoes and the chicken and added half a cup of water. I cooked on high for eight hours and everyone loved it!
