Mexican Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2007
I would give this recipe 10 stars if I could. I let the dough rest for about 8 hrs and they rolled out so well! I followed the recipe exactly. I always made my tortillas from the mix and those are better than the store-bought, but not nearly as tasty and easy to roll out as these. Here's a tip for anyone struggling to roll out a circular tortilla: Instead of starting out by making the tortillas into balls, I have a friend who works them into an almost-doughnut shape (picture one of those small cake doughnuts by Hostess), with an indention in the middle instead of a hole. And, of course, the rounder and more even you make the doughnut shape, the easier it is to roll the torilla out into a recoginizably circular shape. And, as instructed in the recipe, sprinkling a little flour over the working surface and tortilla top really allows the dough to roll out into the correct shape. Thanks for the great recipe!

Broccoli Casserole I

Reviewed: May 11, 2007
Great recipe--as usual, I didn't have all the ingredients, so I substituted 1 1/2 cups prepared pepperidge farm stuffing mix for one cup of the rice, and I used grated xtra sharp cheddar (1/2-3/4 cup) along with more cream of mushroom soup (and one time I used half-n-half)as a substitue for the cheese soup. I love recipes that seem to turn out great no matter what you do to them (as long as you keep the proportions correct!). Thank you!

Smushed Apples and Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2007
This is pretty good! My two year old loved it. Definitely a good alternative to just a baked sweet potato, and a good choice when you want something a little sweet and creamy but don't want all the calories and fat of the true sweet potato casserole.

Mom's Turnips

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2006
For turnips, this probably is "the best". My husband, who likes turnips, really thought this recipe was good, although he did say it wouldn't be how he would always want to eat them. I, who doesn't like turnips at all, was pleasantly amazed that this recipe makes them edible!

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2006
Great biscuits! Great flavor--no yucky baking powder aftertaste, and they are so big. I never need the whole cup of milk, I usually only use about 3/4 cup. This has become my regular biscuit recipe!

Mom's Country Gravy

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2006
This is a great, simple recipe. My husband thought this was the best breakfast gravy he'd ever had. Just because it was there, I left the bacon drippings in the skillet, and added a corresponding lesser amount of oil to the pan to make the gravy, which added a nice flavor, I think. What a great recipe--thanks!

Pork Tenderloin with Creamy Herb Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2005
This was really great. I made some modifications based on what I had in the cupboard, as well as other reviewer's comments. I used 2% milk instead of cream, which worked out fine. I sauteed 1 clove of garlic, minced, and about 1/4 cup chopped white onion with the carrots. I reduced the dried seasoning amount to 1 Tbsp, even though I doubled the rest of the sauce ingredients, and I used Italian Seasoning in place of the basil and parsley. The flavor was really intense! I served it with plain mashed potatoes (because I added garlic to the sauce) and a good fresh baked bread. I liked it a lot, and my husband did too. Thanks for the recipe!

Todd's Famous Blueberry Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2005
Great pancakes. I followed the recipe, except that I used 3/4 c. (give or take) chopped fresh strawberries and 1 tsp vanilla extract, and I only let the batter rest for 20 min. They were definitely some of the best pancakes I have ever made--not too thick, not too thin, not too heavy, and not too light. They browned perfectly and cooked all the way through, and were easy to flip. One tip for making good pancakes is to not let your pan get too hot, because it will result in burned outsides and uncooked insides (I always set my heat to med. or med high, depending on the stove, and remove the pan from heat in between batches).
