Mrs. Sigg's Fresh Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2010
Very, very good. The cup of brown sugar called for is a bit much, probably 3/4 or 2/3 cup is enough. As part of the pumpkin pie spice, you can use finely chopped crystallized ginger.

Greek Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2010
Very good. My husband thought it also would be good with shrimp. My tweaks: a 6 oz. jar of marinated artichokes (in my grocery store, 14 oz. cans of artichokes were packed in water - not marinated); 3 tomatoes, seeded before chopping; and sliced black olives. Next time I will either use shrimp or only half as much chicken, also.

Black-Eyed Peas and Tortillas

Reviewed: May 26, 2010
Quite good for something so quick and easy. We had it with shredded pepper jack cheese and chopped cilantro in the tortillas.

Baked Beans from Scratch

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2008
Everybody in my family liked this, though we all found it too sweet. The long cooking definitely adds a richness and depth of flavor. I added mustard in with the ketchup mixture, and a half pound of partially cooked bacon and some leftover grilled bratwurst. I also found the beans quite soupy, though that may be because I cooked them in a cast iron Dutch oven and couldn't drain them well after the initial boil. (The soupiness was corrected with cooking after the first three hours at 225 and then for 1/2 hour at 400 before serving, as I was baking muffins.) Next time I think I will omit the maple syrup and use only the brown sugar, and again add mustard and bacon.

Chicken Salad With Thai-Flavored Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2008
Tasty & easy. I replaced 1 tablespoon water in the dressing with 1 T. chili oil (instead of using red pepper flakes), romaine instead of butter lettuce, carrots cut in matchsticks rather than shredded, no mint but double cilantro, and leftover grilled breast - very good even with all the changes.

Bean Soup With Kale

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2008
I made this with only one can of beans and two tomatoes (everything else as written). The whole family loved it and my husband was surprised that there was no meat. I'm very happy to have another good recipe with kale.

Sex on the Beach III

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2008
This is also good with lemon vodka. As others have said, a nice balance of spirits and fruitiness.

Honey Wheat Bread II

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
My husband and kids absolutely loved this bread - nice light texture for a whole wheat bread. I found it too sweet, certainly too sweet for sandwiches.

Pierogi Dough

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
I found the dough as written quite difficult to work with. Maybe because it's winter and my flour was dry, I had to add quite a bit of water to make a workable dough, not to mention tons of muscle power. I would put at least a tablespoon of oil and another 1/4 c water - I added almost 1/2 a cup. The pierogies were good but rather chewy.

Better Than Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
Very tasty - I used dark brown sugar, a rounded tsp. of cinnamon, several gratings of fresh nutmeg, a pinch of cloves and about 1/4 tsp. ginger (my family prefers a richer, spicier taste). For the squash I used about 1 and 1/4 cups previously cooked, then mashed and frozen butternut squash. Very good pie!

Oven Denver Omelet

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2007
Very good and very easy. I added about 1/4 c.fresh green pepper and 1/4 c. frozen red pepper. Had to cook it about 10 minutes longer, maybe because of the peppers, but it disappeared quickly at the potluck I took it to.

Frozen Tiramisu

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2006
I used Ghirardelli 60% cocoa chocolate in the ice cream rather than bittersweet, which was very good. This is much easier than a traditional Tiramisu, while still retaining much of what makes Tiramisu so delicious. But most importantly, I would make twice the sauce - the sauce is exquisite and really makes the dessert, in my opinion.
