Luscious Lemon Snaps

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2004
Oh, heaven help those who use this recipe. Vegan is hard enough to bake with when it comes to cookies. Usually, they spread out, get gooey, stick like taffy to your baking sheet, and then sometimes they turn out wonderfully. Wonderful did not happen with these cookies. My only advice since the taste is decent, keep your cookies small. Small and less oil. Also when removing from the sheet. Cool them at least 5 mins first. Then take the side of your spatula and in short QUICK movements transfer the cookie to the cooling rack. I wish you the best. Some will love this and some will curse it!

Fruit Salad in Seconds

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2004
Could life get any simplier? The best part it's so simple you can add to it. Throw in a dash of lemon/orange peel. Garnish with whipped topping or white chocolate shavings. Switch the strawberry flavors out for cherries. Have fun with it!

Cajun Style Meatloaf

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2004
Wow! That's got some kick to it! Any restaurant would be proud to have that on its menu. I didn't use any butter because I wanted to make it a lil' heart healthy. It's a great way to get my kid to drink milk too! :D

German Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2004
Exactly like the recipe says and a wonderful autumn cake. I used mealy apples and it still tasted wonderful. A small word of caution...be careful on your baking time. Just a few minutes too long make the edges crunchy. It doesn't ruin the taste but it will hurt the consistancy. Enjoy!

Maple Roast Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2004
This is a good recipe. I'm grading it fairly tough though. I was dissapointed in the gravy flavor...much sweeter than I was expecting. Overall, the flavor did not soak in like it has with my other recipes.To me this is not for the traditional Thanksgiving feast, but any other time a unique recipe worth trying for a turkey meal.

Sugar Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2004
I don't even like pecans and I found myself nibbling on these. My family raved about them. I used them like confetti on my big Thanksgiving serving and party trays. A wonderful snack and a beautiful garnish. Very easy too. With these around no one missed the pecan pie!

Cranberry Gelatin Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2004
Double stars for this, 5 just isn't enough!Loved it for my thanksgiving feast and it will definately appear for Christmas too. Divine and so easy to make. I couldn't bear to put it in a 9x13 pan though. It's too beautiful...just lightly oil a mold of any kind and chill it until set. To release it from the mold put the bottom of the mold in hot water for no more than 10 seconds and flip it onto a plate . Gorgeous just gorgeous!

Old Fashioned Spice Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2004
I'd never even heard of this type of pie, but that's probably because heaven doesnt want all its recipes getting away from it. Superb downright celestial pie. I made it with the French Pastry Pie Crust recipe. My family (which just tolerates pie normally) preferred this over cheesecake!!!! That was a shock! Watch your baking time on this pie very closely. A little under time is better than too much I think.

Baked Corn II

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2004
Just super. I love corn any old way, but this gave the corn an extra flair for my big dinner party. Thanks so much, Karen! I sprinkled a bit of Parmesan on top just for a garnish and when it melted in to the dish...wow!

Chilled Beet Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2004
I hate giving bad reviews, but as an experienced cook I just couldn't let this one get by. I put it on my dinner table and polite guests were dumping it back into the serving pot! It was mortifying!

Easy Candy Yams

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2004
Okay, this recipe has potential it is divine but it needs MAJOR re-writing. First off, get a bigger dish 9x9 doesnt even have to be square.Use cooked yams or canned yams (drained) and increase the 4 cups to about 6 or 7. Mash them...not chop. Leave out the butter (unless greasing the sides of your dish to keep the marshmallows from sticking. Double the amount of marshmallows and Broil them under a guarded eye for a heavenly browning. Do this and the dish will be the best thing you ever tasted. If not then you will get a big bowl of uncooked potatoes swimming in grease.

French Pastry Pie Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2004
What a blast to make. I just put it in the food processor, chilled, and rolled it out between two sheets of cellophane. A superb pie crust indeed!

Breakfast Casserole III

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2004
I so did not find this edible, but everyone else picked at it and ate it. It must have been me...the eggs puffed up swell, the potatoes took forever and a day to cook thinnly sliced. I threw in some onion and another cup of mozzarella cheese. If I ever made it again, which I won't, I'd use a spicy sausage to kick up the flavor, crumble bacon on top, and layer the sides with halved biscuit dough and glazed the whole thing with milk or garlic butter.

Sausage Gravy I

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2005
I'm just not sure what to say about this gravy...it's good but it seemed for all the clogged arties that come with it there would have been a lil wow to it.

Amish Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2006
A great salad! My family isn't big on bell peppers or dill pickles so I left that out. Followed everything else to the letter and I will be making this again...and again! :)

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2006
Awesome muffins. I may have tweaked the sugar amount in the topping giving it more than the recipe called for but these went fast. I make them for my preschooler's class as mini-muffins and the teachers always rave about the snacks that day.

Orange Chicken Stir Fry

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2006
Geez, this was great! I cut the soy sauce by about half and instead of using orange juice I put a peeled and seeded orange in my blender. The pulp cooked down and then BAM the fresh orange really came out. I'm adding this to the recipe box for sure.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2006
This is great. Excellent flavor for a dish so quick and flexible. I can throw in tuna or chicken or shrimp to give it some extra substance. I've even thrown in corn or peas with the meat and served it casserole style. Guests and family always love it!
