Southwestern Cinnamon Steak Rub

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2004
I tried this rub on my Christmas turkey last year and it was the best turkey the family said they ever had. I used it again this year for Thanksgiving and my husband asked if I could make it regularily instead of just at special occasions. Just rub it under the skin (use the whole amount) and cook as you normaly would.

Peanut Butter Cocoa No-Bake Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2004
I just made these and I found that the recipe needed 1/2 cup more oats. They don't solidify properly without it, even so it's a fine recipe.

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2004
This is my first time making this soup, and I'm not even half way through cooking it. I haven't even added all the ingredients but I just tried a sip of it to see what it tastes like and WOW!!!!!! I can't wait until it's fully finished. I know that this is going to become a family favorite!! As soon as I'm done typing this out I'm going to email the recipe to my sister. I did make a few substitutions though...mild Italian sausage instead of sweet (which I'm going to hunt down for next time) and de-alcoholized wine instead of the regular kind. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU Mary P for this recipe!!!

Chocolate Truffle Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2004
I've made this cake quite a few times now and I LOVE IT !!!!! It's easy to adjust to make different cheese adding white chocolate chips after mixing the batter or peanut butter or melting down a hazelnut chocolate bar instead of the semisweet chocolate...though I find that I like it made with dark chocolate for the cake mix and milk chocolate for the topping. You really can add just about anything to this cake and it just gets better and better.

Chicken Paprikash II

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2004
I've made this many times now and my family and I love it. I usually change something in every recipe I try, and I thought the kids might not this recipe at first, but I don't think this one needs any tweeking, and the kids gobble it up every time.

Eggnog Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2005
The site didn't add that you have to clarify the butter so that the pancakes won't burn. They did however add a link at the bottom of the recipe showing how to clarify butter. For the purposes of this recipe you don't have to completely clarify it though, just heat the butter in the microwave and skim off the fat that floats on top before adding it to the mix. It is also nice if you add the hot butter to the cold milk so that it solidifies again and creats butter pockets in the pancakes when they cook.

Best Ever Pie Crust

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2005
I love pie with a thick flaky crust and this recipe delivers! I used all of it in one pumkin pie thinking that I was going to regret it when it came out of the oven with an uncooked crust, but it turned out perfectly. I can't believe how easy yet tasty this crust is. I'm going to be making a lot more pies!!!

Cranberry Sauce I

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2005
While we were eating this with our southwest seasoned turkey dinner (Southwestern Cinnamon Steak Rub from this site)my husband commented that this would also taste great as a Cranberry Crumble, so I tried it and it turned out great. I used 3 cups flour, 2 cups quick oats, 1 1/2 cups brown sugar, 1/2 cup white sugar, 1 1/2 cups soft butter. Mix together to form crumble and spread 1/2 of it into a lightly greased 13" by 9" pan. Pat it gently down and spread cranberry sauce over evenly and sprinkle the remaining crumble on top patting down gently when done. Bake at 350 degrees for aprox. 45 minutes. Makes great squares for any occasion!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2006
These were fantastic!! I was making pumpkin pie and I had left over pumpkin, so I thought I'd try this recipe and boy am I glad I did. Everyone loved them! The only thing I did different was to substitute some of the water for evaporated milk that I have left over from making the pie. I think it made it even better and next time will use all evaporated milk instead of water. These muffins were moist and filling and I highly recommend them.(even my husband that hates pumpkin loved them)

Cornish Finnish Michigan Pasties

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
I made this for the first time tonight. Thought I would try it because of all the great reviews and they were right. I did change one thing though, (well 2 things if you count adding the seasonings that others had recommended) I added yams instead of potatoes and I'm glad I did. Next time I think I'll not only add the chunks of yam but shred some into it also. It adds sweetness and moisture to the filling and yams are more nutritious than potatoes. I recommend if you are using yams that you cut bigger chunks, as yams cook faster than potatoes.
