Spiced Pecans

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2007
I was short on sugar, so use half white sugar, half brown sugar and they still turned out great.

Sweet Potato Bread II

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2007
I followed other reviews and limited the sugar to one and a half cups plus a little extra to sprinkle on the top before baking. I've found that dusting the top of quick breads with a little bit of sugar is an excellent substitute for copious amounts of sugar in the batter plus it give the bread a great, crusty top. Like another reviewer, I substituted applesauce for all of the oil and it turned out great. I would recommend both greasing and flouring the pans, though. Also, I would add about one teaspoon extra cinnamon. My loaves cooked in one hour.

Nany's White Cake

Reviewed: May 28, 2007
Easy, tasty with a good consistence. I confess, I used this recipe as a base with some modifications. I substituted one quarter cup of flour with one third cup finely chopped macadamia nuts. I thought it turned out great--subtle flavor and not too sweet.

Cooking Light magazine's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2006
I would suggest only 1 cup of sugar and more zucchini. This is an adequate recipe but not enough flavor for me. Maybe if I added some walnuts. More spice might help, too.

Classic Fish and Chips

Reviewed: May 16, 2006
Pretty good. I substituted New Belgium Fat Tire beer for 3/4 of the milk. I think this added a lot of flavor. Half milk, half beer is probably a good mix. I had a lot of batter left over, too. I will only make a half recipe in the future. I did put it to good use for some onion rings, though.

Waffles I

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2006
Thought these turned out great. We have a non-stick style waffle iron and didn't need to spray it with the non-stick spray.

Streusel Topped Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2006
These muffins were good, but nothing spectacular. I'm still looking for "the" blueberry muffin recipe--especially since this one has so much butter in it. Also, I'm glad I only used 1/2 a cup sugar.

Microwave Spiced Nuts

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2006
Very good. I used cinnamon, allspice, ginger and a sprinkle of kosher salt to bring out the flavor. I agree with other reviewers that its good to add some extra cinnamon, etc. I think the could have turned out crisper if not prepared in the microwave, but the microwave sure makes it easy. Perhaps I will try pre-toasting the nuts next time.

Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2005
Don't expect this to be like a standard pecan pie. Its not as custard-like or eggy. It forms a very crusty top. I like the idea of not having to use corn syrup, so next time I'll try adding another egg.

Connie's Zucchini "Crab" Cakes

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2005
Very good! I used about 2/3 potato and 1/3 zuch--less expensive and tasty, too.

Dutch Babies II

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2005
This recipe is great, quick and easy. I added bananas with a little brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg to the butter before I poured the batter in--tastie! I also added a little vanilla to the batter as was suggested by some reviewers. I'm going to try apples next time.

Blueberry Cornmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2005
Overall quite good, but next time I will substitute applesauce for half of the butter--their a little oily.

Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2005
I added just a sprinkling of lemon zest and the flavor was great. I didn't think I would like bluebrry pie, but I'm making this again. The only problem is my pie never made juice. . Maybe it needed to bake longer. I'll have to turn the temperature down a little next time.

Libby's® Pumpkin Cranberry Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2005
I thought it turned out great--even non-cranberry lovers liked it! I substituted applesauce for the oil without problem, cut down the sugar by a half a cup or so and sprinkled a little sugar on top. Great!

Candy-Coated Milk Chocolate Pieces Cookies I

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2004
I use this site a lot, and have always been able to trus the reviews. This recipee, however, was a huge disappointment. I followed the recipe exactly and wound up with crispy, flat, greasy cookies that were way to salty. Ick. What a waste.

Cherry Pie III

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2004
Maybe I did something wrong, but I thought the crust recipe called for way to much shortening. I had to add a lot of flour. For those starting the recipe, cut in the shortening a little at a time (probably using 1/2 cup). Use the pea size crumbs as your guide. Also, if you follow other reviewer's suggestions of leaving the cherries out of your saucepan mixture, be aware that you are eliminating a lot of the juice you would otherwise cook out of the cherries. I would add at least half of the cherries, otherwise the cornstarch mixture becomes way too thick and may cause problems. I cut the sugar nearly in half and thought it was great.

Grandma VanDoren's White Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2004
This recipe makes a great high altitude loaf. Be warned: when the recipe calls for a large bowl, it means a REALLY large bowl. I've added whole wheat for half of the flour, and that works great, too.
