Quick and Easy Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2008
I made these while standing and chatting with a friend, and couldn't believe how fast they came together. (Couple beers had skewed my sense of time passage...) The taste is incredible. Made exactly as stated minus the nuts--boyfriend is allergic. No frosting needed! Sprinkled powdered sugar on top, more for looks than anything else. Everyone loved them. Just had one, couple days later, and they are still NOMMY! Update: Made these again with 'help' from my 5 year old. Still super tasty! Just wanted to add that I used about 1/4 c margarine and 3/4 light butter with canola oil, did not notice a change in taste or texture!

Rolled Dumplings

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2008
Very very good. As another reviewer suggested, these puff up so much I wish I would have rolled them thinner and cut them smaller! Also, make sure you have plenty of liquid to cook them in; I would say they more than double, and if they can't move freely while cooking there will be trouble (and don't ask how I know that! LOL!) I added a touch of my favorite dried herbs, and cooked in the crockpot on high for about double the stated time. Excellent. UPDATE: Made these again per the recipe (1/2 batch this time), again adding some herbs, just wanted to say they turned out great again!

Country House Bed and Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2008
This was excellent, wonderful flavor. I cooked it in a loaf pan and had no trouble with too dry. The boyfriend actually commented on how tasty it was, and he's not into eggs! I made it as stated, except had no croutons so I just cut up a piece of toast. Nommy! UPDATE: This time I am trying to clean out the fridge, so I added some cottage cheese, half a green pepper, a chopped roma tomato, a little spinach and some basil. Used toast again and had white cheddar on hand. Popped it in the fridge about 4 pm and threw it in the oven at 6:45. Took about an hour to cook with all the extra stuff-and I had to dump out a LOT of extra grease-but turned out great! Much richer with the cottage cheese.

Tomato Spinach and Basil Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
Great flavor, not so hot in the looks department--this was mostly my fault, just letting others know what not to do! I didn't have tomato puree, just petite diced; I was going to puree it myself in the food processor, but decided since the onions were in big chunks and I like chunky tomato soup, I would try it as is. So I dumped in the big can of diced tomatoes, and then noticed that the milk was a little curdled. I followed the recipe exactly, so this was a little disappointing. After adding the spinach and basil with the curdled milk it looked really nasty, and I got the bright idea to throw it all in the blender. It came out looking like baby poo :) I had friends over, and they all said the flavor was great, I just don't recommend blending the soup all together. Next time I will just deal with the milk chunks :) Wonderful flavor so thanks for the recipe, I'm going to keep trying on this one!

Amish Friendship Bread III

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2008
I enjoyed this recipe. I made two changes; I omitted the nuts as my boyfriend is allergic. I also substituted pumpkin puree for the oil. The bread did get brown long before the inside was done; 40 minutes in I turned the temp down to 325 and gave it another 15 minutes to cook it all the way through. The taste is great though, just the right amount of cinnamon and apples. UPDATE: Made this again, using the exact ingredients as the recipe states. I put some in muffin tins and they took about 15 minutes to bake.

Garlic Cheese Quick Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2008
Decided to make this for my son's birthday party, along with some other bread. I halved the recipe and cooked in a mini loaf pan, and it was the first kind gone! One person made me print out the recipe before they would leave. Huge hit, awesome flavor and texture. It was compared to some biscuits that a popular seafood restaurant offers....I added a teaspoon each of dried minced onion and parsley. Wish I wouldn't have halved the recipe-thanks! UPDATE: Made this again for my birthday dinner, this time the whole loaf. I did add 2 T of fresh parsley and 2 t of dried minced onion. This time, I used half mozzarella and half fresh parmesan cheese instead of cheddar, and it was sooo good. A little more sophisticated flavor. We had this bread with Slow Cooker Clam Chowder from this site, a meal in itself! UPDATE: Made this again, putting them in muffin cups this time. Made half a recipe, adding a little parsley. Took about 25 minutes to cook small muffins.

Animal Crackers

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2008
Wonderful. I used an extra teaspoon of honey and they were still not sweet at all; great treat for my 5-year-old, and easy to work with. I used cold butter, and for buttermilk I used skim milk with a bit of lime juice. My pan was ungreased and I had no problem with the cookies sticking. Fun easy treat! Thanks for the recipe!

Whole Wheat Beer Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2008
I cannot believe this is a quick bread. Smell while baking is incredible, texture is awesome, and end result is super tasty. All I had was Heineken light, but I can't wait to make this with a Guinness. Mmm. Did add the melted butter, since almost every other reviewer did; probly about 1/4 cup. UPDATE: Made this again, this time a half batch. A half batch is a little too much for my mini loaf pan! Took about 40 minutes to bake.

Apple Pie Cider

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
This was really yummy. I followed the recipe exactly and tried it both warm and cold (I prefer it warm), very good! I'm going to try adding some different spices in with the cinnamon next time. I had a bunch left over after our party, so the next day I mixed it half and half with Vernor's Ginger Ale and OMG it was awesome.

Worked like a charm! I put mine in a plastic pitcher to make measuring on day 10 easier.

Cream Soup Base

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2008
Wow, this was awesome. I usually use beef flavoring. I've used this as a sauce in Shepherd's pie and on pizza (Egg Breakfast Pizza from this site). It was awesome! It's good by itself too. Sometimes I'll add a veggie soup mix I get from the bulk spice aisle (it's just tiny dried veggies and some seasoning). Thanks for the great recipe!

Top Shelf Margaritas on the Rocks

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2008
My first time making a margarita. Yummy. I used lime juice in the sour mix since that's all I had, and I nixed the egg white. My only complaint is that the recipe makes odd amounts of simple syrup and sour mix...

Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2008
Completely flat. I had a puddle of dough in the pan, with chocolate chips hills sticking up. I thought it was because I tried to hurry and not refrigerate as stated...so I put the remaining half of the dough in the fridge overnight. Next morning, I attempted to bake the chilled half and still ended up with puddles. Look elsewhere for a good chocolate chip cookie recipe--

Spaetzle II

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2008
Pretty good stuff! I made the dough as stated. For pinching, every third dumpling or so I dipped my fingers into some flour; otherwise the whole glob just kept sticking to my fingers. I made them a bit bigger but they were still cooked all the way through; I cooked them in beef broth with a clove of garlic added in. Sprinkled with parsley right before serving; next time I will try adding some herbs to the dough itself. So good for how simple this recipe is, thanks!

Cinderella Pumpkin Bowl with Vegetables and Sausage

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
This was sooo yummy. I'm just a little disappointed I couldn't get a better picture! I bought a real Cinderella pumpkin and it was gorgeous. Anyway. After 3 hours of the filled pumpkin being in the oven, I pulled it out to take a look, and the flesh was so soft that it cracked and fluid started leaking everywhere. I tested the filling and it wasn't quite cooked :( So, I thought, nothing for it; scoop it out and cook it some more. I put all the filling back in my big pot and simmered it for an additional 30 minutes or so. After all the filling came out of the pumpkin, though, it couldn't hold itself up anymore, and collapsed completely. I scooped up some flesh and added it to my pot, and saved the rest. So, next time, I don't think I will pre-bake the pumpkin, as it seemed unnecessary. I might also try lentils as a good sub for the brown rice. The only other thing I would change about this recipe is to double the meat; each bowl only had about 3 slices in it, and my man likes a little more meat than that. But, wow! Excellent recipe, thanks for sharing!

Homemade Cream-Style Soup Mix

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2008
This was great. I followed recipe as written except I cut it in half. The finished product is tasty even with no added ingredients. Never again am I going to buy the canned stuff just because I'm in a hurry!

Egg Breakfast Pizza

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2008
Excellent! I only made one, and I used real bacon on it. For the soup I used 'Cream Soup Base' from this site. My crust was 'Pizza Crust I' also from this site--it bakes up nice and thick. I only prebaked it for 5 minutes and I don't think it was quite enough; the bottom was pretty pale while the toppings were golden and delicious. Nonetheless it was cooked through and I got a compliment from DBF :) Thanks for a great recipe!

Sauerbraten I

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2008
This was soooo good! Thank you so much for the recipe! I did pretty much everything as stated, but only soaked for 4 days, then dumped the lot into the crockpot and cooked it on low all day. I had to use a spatula to get it out, it was so tender. We had a bunch of people over for supper and each and every one said how good it was; some more than once!

Slow Cooker Thanksgiving Turkey

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
Moist and yummy! I know this is a major change, but I used a can of condensed french onion soup instead of a can of gravy; I highly recommend this if you are looking for something a little different! The gravy I made with the resulting juices was soooo good. Excellent recipe that made our Turkey Day much easier! I had a half a bird instead of a breast, about 5 lbs, and I cooked it on high for an hour then turned it to low for about 4 hours, then held it on warm for another hour while I finished everything else up. Tasted great, thanks for the recipe!
