Simple Scones

Reviewed: May 26, 2011
I made these for our Mommies Group's big Tea party, and they were a huge hit!! I also used my food processor to make it simple, and the whole recipe took all of 15 minutes to make. I was a little worried that the dough was too sticky when I turned it out, but they turned out really well. I used a little more than 1/2 c craisins, and zest of about 1/2 of a big navel orange. I also added about a tsp ground cinnamon and a splash of vanilla. I cut them into 16 triangles, sprinkled with sugar and voila!

Pecan Pie Bars I

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2011
I made this for my husband's office once, and for a moim's group another time, and it was such a hit! I don't even like pecans, and I love this! I did it in my big jelkt rooll pan with a lid, so I didn't even need to take it out of the pan to serve. It was plenty for a big group. I'll probably make it again for church some time. I added some toffee chips the second time, as suggested by someone pre iously. I don't know that I could even tell, honestly. I chopped my nuts really fine, since I don't like them, and it worked great.

Blackberry Cobbler II

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2012
This was really delicious. Even my hubby loved it, and he doesn't always like fruit desserts. I didn't have enough blackberries, by about half, but I made the recipe anyway, since we like the bread of a cobbler a lot anyway. It probably would have been better with more berries, but it was still Fab! Also, I substituted the appropriate amount of "baking" Splenda for the sugar, and I used my calphalon pot instead of my cast iron one, since I only have army-sized cast ironware. I will defititely be making this every time blackberries go on sale at Costco.

Eggs Benedict

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2012
''''' '' '' This was by far the best eggs Benedict I've eaten, and it was easy to make, too. I actually skipped the Canadian bacon, since I was pressed for time and it was just me and the kids, and I used whole wheat English muffins. I also reduced the butter by about 1/4 cup, mostly because I didn't realize until it was too late that this recipe was so big, and like I said, it was just me and the kids. Oh, and i didn't have any white pepper on hand, either. I actually substituted garlic powder. Tasted great, though! I decided to save the leftover sauce and poach some eggs again for tomorrow's lunch. It would be a great thing to make ahead and take to work. I used to have a microwaveable egg poacher I used at work that woul be perfect!

Toscana Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2012
This is my hubby's favorite meal. We double it, and use about 1/3 lb. Spicy bulk sausage, plus about a pkg of plain pork sausage links sauteed in the pan, rather than baking it. I also can't find anything called "nutritional yeast" at my grocer, so I just use the miso, and it's excellent!

Beer Cheese Soup II

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
This was a pretty easy and delicious recipe with just a couple of minor additions. I followed a previous reviewer's recommendation of adding the cornstarch (I actually just used flour since I couldn't find the cornstarch) while the stock was boiling, and then reducing before adding cheese and cream. My additions were: some ground mustard seed, a little bit of basil, and some more garlic. I also added almost a cup of extra cheese, and topped with bacon pieces and green onions. Mmmmm.... We enjoyed this immensely with salad and yeast rolls on the side.
