Ham and Pineapple Pinwheels

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
I used this recipe for a "girls nite" at my church, and it went over well. I'll note that keeping the pineapple-cream cheese mixture away from the edges kept the filling from leaking out as I rolled them. I secured the wraps with toothpicks, then cut between them to make slices without having them get too goopy. Chilling them helps them hold together better. I wouldn't hesitate to make them again. Would be great for a shower or luncheon.

Caramel Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2009
Haven't tried this yet, but know it will work. I've been hunting this recipe for more than 10 years! The wife of a Southern Illinois pastor/dairy farmer made it for a Bible study group party, and it was incredible. I've been searching for the recipe for years to no avail, and tried to make it myself only to create a goopy mess. Thanks for the recipe!!!

Flax and Sunflower Seed Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2006
I was excited to try this recipe, but I thought there were way too many seeds in it. Maybe I got something wrong, but my loaf seemed more like bird food than bread. I'll try it again with a few less seeds and see how it goes -- in any case, both I and the backyard cardinals are finding it edible, with or without butter. :)

Caramel Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2005
I agree about the waste of time and energy for this, and I have an alternative. I love this stuff so much I'll eat it right out of the can as dessert in itself. But if I want to heat it, I make two notches in the can and put it on my top oven rack for 20 minutes or so at around 350. I'm not sure if this is a whole lot safer, but it seems to work alright and I just carefully take the thing out with oven mitts.

Mama's Italian Wedding Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2005
My husband loves soup, and we agreed this rates about four stars. We took the advice of previous posters and fiddled a little ourselves on the minor details, like adding more herbs and taking out the minced onion (we're picky and don't like them). That's all personal preference; but we would have enjoyed another half cup of carrots and and a LOT more broth. Once the pasta and the meatballs soaked it up, it was denser than stew! We used 96 ounces and should have had another 49-ounce can, so use a huge pot if you're reading this! But that's easy enough to add later, thankfully. We dished up enough for about 10 servings if you add a little more broth. More carrots + more broth = five stars!

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2005
Aww, man! These are incredible. I used raw, farm-fresh milk and all-purpose flour, but otherwise faithfully followed directions. These take awhile, but the payoff is scrumptious.

Cheese Herb Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2005
I used dried herbs instead of fresh, in the amounts listed, and found it the taste to be too strong. If using dried herbs, I'd reduce the amount called for here and use a little more cheese. That would add another star to the ratings for me.

Jo's Rosemary Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2005
I used a little more sugar and a little less salt, as suggested by another poster, and was well pleased. It always gets compliments. I make it often, so I measure out the dry ingredients (minus flour) and keep it in small containers so they're ready to go whenever I want to bake it.

Italian Cheese Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2005
My husband and I enjoyed this bread, but it did, as described, have a strong flavor. For those who aren't into hot and spicy foods, I'd reduce the amount of cheese. I think the milder flavor is better for sandwiches. Otherwise, this is a bread that stands alone.
