Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2008
These are my favorite roasted potatoes, I make them all the time. They are tender, delicious and pretty too. One note of warning - I found that 475 was too high, I bake these on 425 for about 35 minutes.

Italian Sausage, Peppers, and Onions

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2006
Fabulous! I use beer instead of wine, olive oil instead of butter, and a yellow pepper instead of green. I serve this in rolls and it's a family favorite.

Pineapple Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2006
This was great - the pineapple added a yummy twist we all enjoyed. I didn't have time to toast the bread, so I omitted that step. Also, I found this recipe loaded with oil and sugar. I cut the oil to 1/4 cup and added 1/2 cup milk to the bread instead. Then, I cut the sugar to 2/3 cup, which was more than enough. I'll be making this again.

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2006
This gets just three stars, because it only works with massive revisions - as is, it would be very bland. I placed onions and veggies (carrots and sweet potatoes this time) under the chicken instead of foil. Then, I rubbed it very generously with crushed garlic, lemon pepper, paprika and salt. I poured about 1/4 cup red wine in as well. To make a complete meal, I threw in a bit more wine and one cup of white rice forty-five minutes before serving. With all those changes, we loved it!

Chewy Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2008
WOW - these are fabulous! Perfect chewy brownies. I cut the sugar to 1 1/2 c. and it was plenty. I also upped the cocoa to 1/2 c. for more chocolate flavor. If you're worried about burning or dryness, bake in a 9x9 pan.

Oregon Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2008
Easy and tasty. Following reviewers advice I omitted the liquid from the can and added 2 T. lemon juice, but the patties were a bit dry. Next time I'd add a T. or two of can liquid. I also added Old Bay Seasoning and dill, both of which gave the patties great flavor.

Quinoa Side Dish

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2005
My first time trying quinoa. This dish had great flavor! I sauteed the onion and mushrooms (which I added) before browning the quinoa, and it was a good move. Update: I've tried this same recipe with bulgur and it was fabulous!

Honey Curried Roasted Chicken and Vegetables

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2006
I adapted this for a crock pot - I just placed the veggies on bottom, then the chicken on top, and then I poured the sauce on top. It was great - soft and flavorful!

Peach Cobbler II

Reviewed: May 24, 2007
Wow - this just came out of the oven and I had four pieces - it's that good! I followed reviewers' advice and cut the sugar in the peaches to 1 cup and the water to 1 cup. I also added vanilla to the water. I used six peaches. Yum! Update: I love cobblers really peachy so next time I tried this with eight peaches. It didn't work - way too much liquid and it didn't bake properly. So I see that six is the way to go.

Pear Crumb Pie

Reviewed: May 23, 2008
Fabulous. This is delicious hot or cold. Putting the crumble on later in the baking let the pears get soft while not burning the crumble. I'll certainly be making this again!

Dad's Pan-Fried Green Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2006
Yum, these were good. Even two of my kids who never touch green beans had some. Frozen beans work fine. I cut the oil in half, and used just 2 T. of soy sauce. More would be overwhelming. Thanks for a keeper.

Peach Berry Cobbler

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2007
This was good, peaches and blueberries are always a great combination. However, I had two small problems with the recipe. Firstly, I found the fruit layer a drop too tart. I usually cut the sugar in recipes, but here even I think it needs more sweetner. In addition, as a I try more and more cobblers I'm finding that there are two basic types - with the dough on top or the dough on bottom. It seems that when the dough is on top (like it is here) you tend to get a compote with cake floating on top, not a real cobbler. I think I'm going to keep looking for more dough on bottom recipes.

Pumpkin Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2009
I adapted this for a crock pot. I browned the meat and then added onion and garlic. I then transferred it to the crock pot along with the ingredients listed as well as a few potatoes, a large sweet potato, 2/3 c. of wine, parsley, onion powder, and basil. I cooked it on high for six hours and it was a really hearty, satisfying stew.

No Bake Peach Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2006
If you want the real thing, I suggest using a recipe in which the peaches are baked. If you do make this, I found two reviewer's advice helpful. Coat all the peaches with the sauce before putting in the shell, and add a bit of almond extract for some extra flavor.

Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2005
Excellent! The first time I made it I had no apricots so I left them out, and it was still wonderful. The next time, I used canned peaches, dribbling the syrup over the dish, and it was really special. Thanks!

Indian Curried Barley Pilaf

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
This looked great, but we found it disappointing - bland and boring. If you do make it, double the spices. You can also cut the butter to 2 tsp. oil.

Sweet Grilled Peaches

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2009
Grilled peaches sounded strange, but we loved these. We used fresh peaches, placed them flesh down on the grill. We left them there for 6 minutes, then turned over, drizzled with the honey and cinnamon, and grilled an additional 5 minutes. They were great.

Sweet Potato Pie I

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2007
This is an easy, tasty pie. Follow reviewers advice and it'll get even better. Cut the sugar to 2/3 c. and use half white sugar, half brown. Add a tablespoon or two of flour, two tablespoons of lemon juice, and some cloves and ginger. Then you've got amazing flavor. Thanks Joyce, and all the reviewers.

Jenny's Black Forest Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2007
This is excellent - beautiful results with relatively little work. I whipped up a big container of Rich's Whip and put it in between the two layers with the cherry filling, and on top with a few cherries for garnishes. My company was impressed with the looks and loved the taste.

Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
This is a nice, moist bread pudding. Putting the bread in boiling milk prevents having the chunks of dry bread that sometimes occur with other bread puddings. I added 1 tsp cinnamon and 1/2 tsp nutmeg, skipped the water bath, and omitted the sauce (I was serving it for lunch, not dessert and wanted to avoid all that sugar and fat). The family enjoyed it.
