Pork Medallions with Port and Dried Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2006
Made this for my husband and I for Christmas dinner. We both loved it. A nice balance of sweetness and tartness but not overpowering. My only problem was letting the reduction go a bit too long so we could have used more sauce!

Hot Buttered Rum Mix

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2006
Delicious! A hot buttered rum drink for people who think they don't like hot buttered rum! Half the recipe for a more manageable amount. I agree with others about adding butter. Spices are good either added in or sprinkled on top. As for it being too sweet, I disagree that the mix itself is too sweet, BUT would suggest just using 1T. of mix (instead of the recommended 2T) with a shot of rum. I'm about ready to go and get a second cup!

Vegetable Pizza Squares

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2006
I've been making this for years. Nothing fancy, but simple and tasty. Kids love it, too.

Herman Reunion Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2006
Delicious. I added more garlic, hot sauce, and Worcestershire than called for and rolled it in nuts only. It was a hit at the Xmas Eve party. I'm already thawing another one for tomorrow's New Year's Eve!

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2006
Just as wonderful as everyone here says it is! I had to cover the top with foil the last few minutes of baking so it didn't over-brown on the top. And I made it in 3 9x5 pans and just let it bake longer. Everyone at this house agrees it will become our "standard" banana bread recipe from now on.

Hot Buttered Rum Batter

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2007
This is the best and easiest hot buttered rum batter I've found. Toss out those canned mixes! It is a huge amount, though, so I halved it. Like others, when serving this I also use spiced rum and add a touch of whipped cream to the top. For those folks who complained it's too much work to make or for guests to put together, are you kidding me?! If that's the case you'd better stick to things that can be drunk right out of the bottle.

Holiday Peppermint Bark

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2007
Easy and good. I use half white chocolate (must use GOOD baking quality white--not standard grocery-store morsels) and half chocolate chips, then top with crushed candy canes. Friends love this stuff.

Chocolate Cavity Maker Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2007
There are all sorts of versions of this cake floating around on this site. This one (in my humble opinion) is spot on. Delicious, rich as hell (try topping with a bit of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream), and easy. Everyone loves this cake and so will you--unless you're one of those odd people who doesn't like things that are "too sweet!"

Beef Bourguignon II

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2007
An amazingly simple and tasty recipe for a classic meal. Made it for company and they were impressed and it all got eaten (served with smashed potatoes and green beans).

Best Spinach Dip Ever

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2007
The old, basic standby. Great at parties; everyone loves it. I use a tad more mayo, Knorr's veggie soup mix, and the WHOLE box of spinach. Yum!

Best Toffee Ever - Super Easy

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2007
LOVE this! Make it every holiday and people can't stop eating it. I use a bit of brown sugar in place of the white. Yes, it can seem a bit greasy but not too bad--it's a rich candy, people! I use parchment paper. It tastes like Almond Roca for those of you who have tried that.

Tuna Noodle Casserole I

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2007
I'd forgotten how good homemade tuna noodle casserole can be! I use 2 cans of tuna (or 1 12oz. can) and skip the flour (you don't need it). My husband loves this, too. Good old-fashioned comfort food.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2007
Excellent; I Loved this recipe! I followed the directions except that I substituted the lemon juice for the cream of tarter. The cookies did not get too flat (as some others said). if you combine shortening and butter as the recipe calls for and don't use all butter, they'll keep a nice shape. My oven runs hot so I baked them at 375 for 7-8 minutes. Coming out they almost look like they need to stay in a minute longer, but once they cooled they were perfect--crisp on the outside and chewy and cakelike on the inside. They stayed this way for about 3 days then began to dry out. I got 30 out of one batch and stuck the dough in the fridge as some others suggested to make it easier to form the balls. Then, I shook the balls in a ziplock with a 2-to-1 cinnamon sugar mix. In our opinion, these taste just like the snickerdoodles at Mrs. Field's.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2007
Like everyone else I had to give this 5 stars. Easy and delicious. Hubby loved it. Can't wait to make it for a party. Oh, I also substituted blue cheese dressing instead of ranch.

Party Punch IX

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2007
Made it for a Christmas party last weekend. Just as good as all the other reviewers said! It disappeared quickly (even though it didn't have any alcohol in it). :-) This is now my go-to party punch--bye bye sherbet punch!

Spinach Dip with Water Chestnuts

A classic. Can't go wrong with this when served with pumpernickel bread. A hit at parties for years.

Water Chestnut Wraparounds

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2007
Had these at a friend's party and they were so yummy I had to go looking for the recipe. Easy but can't-stop-eating-them good. (Use brown sugar instead of white and double the batch.)

Beer Bread I

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2007
Add a touch more sugar than what the recipe calls for; absolutely delicious (we like it with soups and stews) and so much cheaper than the pre-packaged mixed.

Peanut Butter Fudge IV

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2007
LOVE this! Super easy and soooo good. This is the PB fudge recipe my mom made every year at Christmas (she always put roasted peanuts in it, although I skip that). Keeps very well.
