Grocery Store Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
Coconut Oil worked well as a substitute for shortening, as shortening is not readily available where I live.

Gingerbread Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2009
This dough was a dream to work with! I only gave it 4 because I adjusted it and liked the adjustments. I upped the spices by 50%, halved the sugar and substituted the other half with the equivilent in powdered Stevia. I thought with the increased spices it was perfect. It's a definate keeper.

Cambodian Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2009
I put this in my slow cooker as I was running out the door, starting with cold water and put it on high for 3 hours. I didn't have everything the recipe called for, like fish oil/sauce... also instead of curry paste I used dry ground and also ground ginger; for peppers I slivered and sauted orange & red sweet peppers and a med onion, and added brown rice raw (just over 1/2 C). For the chicken I threw in 2 chicken breast whole. When I got home I pulled out the chicken and shredded coursley w/a knife and returned it to the cooker; lastly I added the can of coconut milk and a can of sweet corn, and served it immediately. It was the perfect consistency. My family raved about it and demanded it go in the "keeper" recipe book.

Curried Chicken and Brown Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2009
I wanted to make this casserolle-style in the oven, so as not to dry out the chicken I substituted whole chicken leg pieces for the cut up breast. I mixed all the ingredients except the water and chicken several hours before to allow for the flavors to combine. When it was time to bake it, I added the rice and water and poured the entire liquid mix into a greased casserolle dish. While doing this I seared the chicken in hot olive oil, about 2 min's each side, then pressed them into the dish as well. After spooning a little of the tomatoe liquid over the top of each leg piece I then topped just the pieces with parsley (for looks!). I covered it and baked it at 350 (180) for double the time (1 1/2 hours). It looked gorgeous and smelled divine. I needed to serve 15 men so I quadrupled the recipe. It got better than rave reviews from the men, they went wild over it. Thanks for the great recipe, it's a keeper.

Shrimp Salad Bagels

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
This tasted GREAT. I broiled the sandwiches in nutty grain bread. The only thing I would change is to add an egg to firm up the filling next time because it was a bit runny.

Nutty Fruit Medley

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
Not sure if I should rate this as I didn't have bananas... This tasted fine, maybe a bit too mayonaise-ee. I think I'll do just plain yogurt instead of the mayo next time.

Buttermilk Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
I used 2 C white flour and 1 1/3 whole wheat, and it was still very moist and yummy. I think I'd have the buttermilk at room temp next time as I had to let it raise longer in the bread machine that my dough cycle allows (took it out and baked in reg loaf pan).

Very Garlicky Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
Nice dressing. Proportionally, I added about 1/4 t white pepper and 1/2 t or less sea salt. I also cut the dijon down just a bit.

Beer Brisket

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2009
I started with a frozen roast, and was short on prep time, so I used the onion, beer, half the pepper, and brown sugar, and substituted beef broth for the seasonings. After the beer and brisket were in the pot, I filled it to the top of the roast with the broth & added the onion, sugar & pepper. Because it was frozen I had it at 350 for the first hour, then turned it down to about 280 for the last 6 hours. It smelled heavenly, pulled apart perfectly... can't wait to have the left overs tonight.

Jan's Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2008
I've made this recipe many times this past year and it's always great, even better the day after you bake it. I frosted it with Bailey's Whipped cream (2 C real whipping cream, 2 T sugar, whipped to med-stiff peaks, then whip in 1/3 C Bailey's)topped w/crushed toffee bar bits. It got RAVE reviews at my friends birthday party.

Lemon Yogurt Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2008
Moist yet not too heavy. After reading reviews, I was unsure of how these would turn out. I used a natural powder sweetener instead of sugar, plain yogurt, and I added poppy seeds. The kids loved them. I think the juice over the top at the end is the kicker - nice touch.

Baked Pumpkin Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2008
I used real pumpkin that was more watery than in the can, so I only used 1 C liquid (1/2 C cream and 1/2 C whole milk) and added an egg. I baked them in greased muffin tins, and this recipe made 12 when filled to the top of each cup. Thanks for the nice recipe.

Corn Meal Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2008
These were delightful. I used whole milk and skipped the cinnamon just because I was looking for a "savory" side dish. They fried wonderfully in olive oil and were nice just spread with butter.

Caramel Pretzel Nut Popcorn

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2008
YUMMMMM. I only had maple flavored syrup on hand, so I used that instead of the lite corn syrup. I also cut the sugar by 1/3rd. This will go in my holiday favorites. Thanks!!

One Bowl Chocolate Cake II

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2008
I went to make this the other day and discovered I had NO cocoa powder, so I made it without, substituting flour for the cocoa and adding a bit more vanilla - it was melt in your mouth amazing! I have been making this cake for 3 years now. I live in a place where cake mixes are VERY expensive to this is a god-send. Love it!

No Bake Fudge Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2008
Followed other users advice and cut the sugar in half, but also went all brown sugar. (I like it rich.) My 3 yr old says, 'Dat tast-es good'. I couldn't have said it better - YUM!

Popcorn Cake II

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2008
A family favorite! I like to add 1/2 t. almond or 1 t. vanilla extract for an added "yum" factor. 16 cups popped corn is about 3/4 cups unpopped corn.

Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
The taste was amazing, but it certainly didn't "whip" like it said it would. Mine turned out very pasty, even after cutting the sugar in half, but worked GREAT with what I made. I used a devils food cake mix made with milk instead of water, layered the PB frosting between the three cake layers, and frosted it with a tub of purchased chocolate frosting, finishing it off with Reeses Pieces on top- the PB frosting MADE the cake, it was the texture of the middle of a Reeses cup, and therefore AMAZING. Worked out good for me, and great for dipping apples in, but not what I was expecting by the "advertising".

Overnight French Toast II

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
Taking the advice of others, I cut the sugar in half, added cinnamon, and used raisin bread cut 1" thick. Because of the raisins I thought the sweet was just right, but if you didn't have them it would have needed a bit more than the 1/2 C I put in. I also let it sit only for an hour in the fridge before baking. Whole family loved it! Thanks for the great recipe.
