Pressure Cooker Hard-Boiled Eggs

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2014
I started boiling eggs in my pressure cooker recently and I love it! For my instant pot, I use the steam setting. Much easier to peel! (although my friend's farm-fresh eggs were still a challenge)

Peanut Butter Pie VIII

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2014
Made this with slight variations for "Pi" day and it was a HUGE hit with my family! I dont think I'd ever had a peanut butter pie of any sort before, and I was blown away! I reduced powdered sugar to 3/4 c as mentioned by some reviewers and it was still plenty sweet for us. I cooked the pudding in the microwave. I used almond and coconut milk and a gluten/dairy free home made crust. Thanks for such a treat!

Donut Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2011
Awesome! Was still great when I subbed my fave gluten-free flour mix and subbed light coconut milk for the milk. i also reduced nutmeg to 1/2 tsp as i'm not a huge fan, but i couldnt even taste it. I thought the butter (sub) was rather heavy, and will probably try some alternate toppings next time - but so good my 15 yo got in trouble for eating 15 of them by himself .. . leaving 9 for the other 4 of us . . .. oops.

Mom's Turkey Sausage Patties

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2011
5 star despite slight changes. I'd tried many recipes, and this is the one my family LOVES. I use 1 lb of meat, and only use 1/3 of the quantity of salt and black pepper, and add 1 tsp oil and 1 TB maple syrup. Its spicy but even the kids gobble it up!

Microwave Oven Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
This recipe is fantastic, esp. with all the helpful reviews - add roasted nuts after 3 minutes of cooking, spread on warm pan, etc. One more tip - I used an instant-read thermometor which i bought for making bread, and make sure to cook until its 300 degrees. A candy thermometor is too slow - by the time the reading is correct, the candy has started to cool.

Souvlaki

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2009
I first tried this recipe when I was looking for something to do with a pork loin - i grew up jewish and we never cooked pork! I tried this for something different and my husband devoured it like i'd never seen . . . he finally stopped eating long enough to tell me that he used to go to a little hole-in-the-wall place in canada, almost weekly, just to order their souvlaki, and this tasted EXACTLY like it! For a long time, my youngest got excited whenever he saw the 'meat on a stick', and actually called it 'yummy meat'. Due to allergies, I have reworked this to use chicken and leave out the garlic, and we still love it - thanks! (but we do sub half the soy w more lemon, to reduce the salt)

Oven-Fried Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2008
When I picked up the stuffing mix, there were off-brand mixes in bags, and they had a small-crumb and a large-crumb variety - i just used the small crumb, and it was fine. However, my kids did NOT like the flavor at all. They prefer my usual grilled pork chops.

Creamy Parsnip With Ginger Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
Awesome! Due to food issues and what was on hand, of course i altered a bit. I subbed 2 leeks for the onion, and added with the garlic (which i increased some). I grated in some frozen fresh ginger, and also used the powdered ginger. I omitted the cardomam and used potato milk instead of the cream. Oh, I also put in the whole box of broth, which is closer to 4 cups than 3. My family loved the soup! Well, it was too sweet for my husband, but my teen daughter had 2 bowls of this and no chicken, and my 11 yo boy ate his whole bowl. (Ok, he actually dipped some of his french fries in it lol)

Grilled Peppers and Zucchini

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2008
I wanted something very simple with zuchini and yellow squash and peppers, and this was it! I put the veggies in a 8x12 pan, tossed with soy and a little garlic powder, and dotted w margerine. I covered w foil and baked in the oven with the lamb roast. The veggies werent quite done so I broiled them for a couple of minutes at the end. All the veggie eaters in the house ate it with pleasure, despite it being very plain. Somehow, it just worked. (note, my daughter agreed it should be 3.5 because it was good but nothing specail, so i rounded up a little)

The Wessel Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2008
Havent made this recipe, but looking at it, I strongly suspect he put the amount of powdered sugar wrong. I bet with a larger amount of powdered sugar, it would work better. Probably the cake also needs to be cooled completely before frosting.

Cornbread Muffins I

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2008
These are great! Changes I make: reduce sugar to 1/2 cup (its still very sweet). Replace half of the milk with sour cream or yoghurt (or sub buttermilk). I use defrosted frozen corn, but if i'm out, i make it without the corn and its still awesome.

Best Ever Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2008
Huge hit with my family. I reduced sugar to 1 cup, replaced 1/2 c of the flour w/ whole wheat flour, and 1/2 of the oil with apple sauce, and added some cinnamon (maybe 1/2 tsp, maybe 1, i love cinnamon). Also cooked in 1 hours, i think.

Unbelievable Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2008
Good, quite good. I subbed in balsamic vinegar, becuase its what I had, and grilled on a grill pan. The meat was tender, and Hubby was quite pleased, so were older kids. I thought it was fine, but I had to cut off the outside for the 4 year old, because it was too strong.

Turkey Pot Pie I

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2007
I altered it by using home-made turkey broth, no milk, and leftover gravy. We fight over it, I think I'll have to start making 2 at at time!

Sauteed Apples

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2007
Yummy! I did exactly as stated, maybe cooked a little longer. I served with ham and the sauce was great on the ham. Kids loved it too!

Roasted Vegetable Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2007
A lot like my standard lasagna recipe -- I used 2 eggs instead of egg replacer and put some garlic powder, black pepper and parsley in w the cheese mix. I liked the roasted veggies, but hubby the carnivore just said OK.

Chocolate Pudding Fudge Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2007
I agree with the one reviewer who said it still tastes like a box cake . . . it kinda does. But, i had a box cake and wanted to make something fun with it . . . i'm not sure I couldnt have done better without the mixes tho. If you usually cook with mixes, you'll probably like it. If you generally avoid boxes and cans, its just ok.

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
I made this to top 2 dozen banana cupcakes, and it was enough with some left over. I also used one low-fat cream cheese and one regular. This was the easiest to use consistancy of any frosting I've made. I would suggest doubling the vanilla, but I liked the not-too-sweet flavor. Creamy, fluffy, soft, not instant-headache sweet!

White Bean Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2007
Loves this -- i had leftover chicken meat and was craving white chicken chili. Of course, i changed a few things: I used more garlic; i added a can of black beans also; i used home made chicken broth but didnt measure, so it was between 1 and 2 cups; I used 2 small cans of tomatos with chilis (one was fiesta flavor), plus the can of chilis, and skipped the tomatillos; i used one drained can of corn; I threw in some leftover chicken gravy (homemade) which thickened it. My 14 yo praised it and my hubby had seconds, and I was very satisfied. I'm picky, so thats a good review for me!
