Amish Peanut Butter

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2007
This is more like a peanut butter topping for ice cream. It goes well on toast, too, though. Heck, peanut butter goes great on anything in my opinion. I also made a batch where I added carmel ice cream topping and mixed it together. Of course, that was certainly used for ice cream sundaes. This is exactly like a spread that is served at an Amish restaurant in Southern Indiana. Thanks for the recipe.

Algerian Carrots

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2013
I made these carrots for dinner tonight. I followed it for the most part. The only thing I changed was I reduced the amount of carrots by about 1/2 pound, I used a little less oil, and only about 1/2 of the cinnamon called for. Everyone liked them (except the 11 year old who didn't like the spice blend). I love carrots so I will be making them again, but will probably reduce the cinnamon even further as it was a rather bold, albeit nice, flavor. Oh yeah, I also used baby carrots.

Colossal Caramel Apple Trifle

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2007
I don't know in what kind of world one lives in that they can fit this recipe in a trifle bowl, but the massive amount of trifle that this makes doesn't impede the awesome flavor. I don't particularly care for apples, so I am trying to think of a way to adapt it to peach pie filling. However, as far as apples go this gets a huge 5 stars. The pudding mixture was great and I toasted my pecans before putting them in. Thanks for the great, big, awesome recipe!

Glazed Ham Balls

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2008
I prefer my ham loaf or balls without glaze, but my daughter who hates ham loaf or balls loved this recipe. Both my daughter's and my husband gave it a 2 thumbs up and I have to agree. It was easy to prepare and it freezes well to be baked at a later time. Thanks for sharing.

Creme Brulee French Toast

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2008
My daughters both loved this recipe, as did I! It was amazing and dessert like. We had it for breakfast one morning and dinner the next night. The only thing I will do differently next time is make double sauce for the bottom. Yes, it was sweet, but it was so good to dredge the "toast" in.

Taffy Apple Salad I

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2008
I do not particularly care for apple salad. I prefer my apples sliced thin with a glob (and I mean a GLOB) of caramel dip on them. That fact aside, I decided to fix this for a family reunion and it was delicious. I used red delicious, because I doubled the recipe and they were on sale. I could see using both a sweet and tart apple for different flavor. I'm also not sure what the tapioca does for the recipe, as what I used didn't soften in the recipe. I may leave it out next time. I also used dry roasted peanuts and think I will use regular salted next time. Otherwise, it was a light summer dish, transported well, and was a huge hit!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
This is simply amazing and amazingly simple. I like to serve it with rice pilaf and steamed veggies. My boyfriend and I usually eat this at least every few weeks. I accidentally left out the butter and it was still awesome. A must try!

Baked Bar-be-Que Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
This was pretty good and very easy to make. I did turn on the broiler to crisp it up a little bit. It was a very enjoyable chicken and even my 6 y/o daughter loved it.

White Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2009
This was such an easy recipe. I did alter it a bit with the addition of mushrooms, onions, and a few jalapenos. It was well received by both my fiance and my best friend. I did buy a pillsbury crust, spread a little garlic on it, and baked it about 10 minutes. I then put the sausage mixture on, topped it with cheese, and baked about 10 more minutes. I can see this being a very versatile recipe, as I used maple sausage, but cannot wait to try it again with hot sausage. Thanks for the recipe!

Kentucky Butter Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
I made this cake yesterday and there is only a few pieces left. I did not have any buttermilk, but used 2% with a few drops of apple cider vinegar. I made it in a 9X13 pan and poked holes in it while it was still warm. I poured a double batch of the sauce in the holes within 5 minutes of it coming out of the oven. I couldn't resist trying it while it was still warm and I enjoyed it very much. The texture of the cake was very different after it cooled. I think it tastes like a really sweet cake donut. My fiance, 7 year old daughter, and 89 & 87 year old grandparents all thought it was a hit as well. My birthday is tomorrow and I am thinking of making another one for the occasion. Thanks for sharing!! 5 Stars . . .

Chicken Chimi in the Oven

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2007
I probably used more garlic than most, but that is to suit my own family preference. The only other thing that I did was add cheese on top of my meat & bean mixture. These were really easy for me and they tasted great! I will be making them again and again. It is just as good as our local Mexican restaurant and cheaper, too!

Paula's Bread Sticks

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
I have made these 2 days in a row. They are incredibly easy and very tasty. There are endless options of spices you can use to adjust the flavor to suit the tastes of your family. I do find that the cooking time to get them brown & crusty on the outside and soft on the inside is much longer than the suggested 10-12 minutes. It is more like 20 in my oven and that is basting them with a garlic butter about 1/2 way through baking. When my daughter can do quick breads for 4-H, I am certain she will present this as one of her projects. Thanks for the resume.

Sushi Roll

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2010
I'm not a huge sushi eater, but I really did like this recipe. I took another reviewers advice and made a roll with bacon and avacado. It was my favorite. I will be making this again later in the week using shrimp. Today we used crab, bacon, and salmon.

Freezer Caramel Drizzle Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
This was so good! I could have doubled the coconut/pecan mix (same amount of butter) and been happier. I also wish that I would have put a layer of the coconut/pecan mix between the 2 layers of cream cheese/carmel layer. The flavor would not have been better, just more of the stuff that makes the pie great! Thanks for the recipe.

Egg Noodles

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
Make sure you cut these thin or they taste doughy even when fully cooked. Very easy recipe and very tasty...even when a little doughy! This was my 2nd time making the recipe and both times they turned out great.

Italian Sausage, Peppers, and Onions

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
I am giving this a 5 because of the ease of the recipe. I did alter the recipe just a little by adding a jar of marinara sauce to the peppers and let the sausages simmer in that. I am sure that it would have been just as good without, but the marinara made it extra special. I will definitely make this again, as my husband was extremely happy with the dish and I also thought it quite good. This is kind of surprising to me, as I tend not to like anything with cooked peppers in it. The picture is spot on to how mine looked prior to adding the marinara, as well! Thanks for the recipe.

Sweet Potato Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2011
I am not a fan of sweet potatoes, but my husband requested a sweet potato pie. I followed the recipe with the exception of using 1/2 brown sugar and 1/2 white sugar and baking my sweet potatoes. I was going to add a few tbsp. of flour as suggested, but I forgot. I just tried a piece, and must admit, it is surprisingly good. My husband said it was the best sweet potatoe pie he had ever had. I will certainly make this again. It was a huge hit!

Chicken Oreganato

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2012
I am giving this 5 stars based on what I did to the recipe. The original does call for salt and pepper to be added to the oregano, so if you don't do that, I can see where it would be bland. I used lemon pepper and tiger seasoning in with my oregano. I skipped the step of rinsing and drying my chicken. I dredged it in my oregano mixture, placed it in my pan, then drizzled the EVOO and lemon juice over the top. I baked it for a little longer than called for (because my husband wasn't home yet). I served it with roasted asparagus and rice pilaf...I loved the flavors of this dish and could see it with other spices as well. I will be making this again, and again! It doesn't hurt that I love chicken thighs to begin with and this gave me another fool-proof method of preparation! Thanks, OP for the great recipe.

Killer Shrimp Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2012
I tried to stay as true to the recipe as I could, the only thing I added was a little Johnny's seasoning salt and old bay seasoning. I also marinated the shrimp in some olive oil and old bay seasoning before adding it to the broth. My husband really, really liked it and told me to add it to the make again pile. I did serve with soft french bread, but think I would have been happier with crusty bread. It wasn't exactly what I was looking for, but I would certainly make again. I was hoping for something similar to Ruth's Chris shrimp appetizer. All in all, a very good recipe and it went together very easily.

Blue Cheese Fried Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2012
I doubled the butter...but otherwise, these were amazing. I had a few leftovers and am looking forward to eating those for breakfast. I would definitely recommend this recipe!
