Five Flavor Pound Cake I

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2011
The only thing I changed were the flavors used in this. I had no coconut or rum extract, so my solution was to do 2 tsp of Malibu Coconut Rum. I also used 1 tsp almond extract, 1 tsp vanilla extract and 1 tsp lemon extract. I brought the whole milk, eggs and butter to room temperature, and really whipped the butter, shortening and sugar half to death. The cake only needed 1:30 to cook in my oven, and we topped it with fresh strawberry puree and fresh strawberry slices. This is a keeper, and if I could give it more than five stars, I would!

This was a hit in my house, even my five year old went back for seconds! I think this one is in the rotation for the upcoming chilly season. Thanks for a yummy treat, Patti!

Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich with Garlic Mayo

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2010
This popped up as the recipe du jour and I was hungry at the time, so this was dinner. I made it as stated: my husband had *three*, my three year old had nearly a whole one and even my picky five year old liked it. Thank you for a delicious recipe, this goes in the box!

Evin's Indian Apricot Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2010
I made this for dinner last night after deciding I wanted something different. The garam masala made the kitchen smell delicious. My three year old had three servings and both my husband and I have decided this will go in the regular rotation. Next time I make it, I will make sure I have basmati rice on hand since I served it over regular white rice last night and the excess starch seemed to pull the flavor down a little. Nice melding of sweet and savory spice! I will definitely make this again!

Peppermint Meringues

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
These. Are. Delicious!!! I made a triple batch tonight so that the kids could take some to school for their Christmas parties. I'm now making another triple batch since my husband and kids ate so much of the first round! I added 1 tsp peppermint extract to the triple batch and topped with crushed chocolate mint candy canes. YUM!

Eggnog Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
These were very yummy, with a delicate eggnog finish. My changes are as follows: used 3/4 cup eggnog, 1/2 cup 2% milk. Added 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract. I cooked at 250* on the griddle - low and slow cooks them through and prevents burning/scorching.

Grandma's Gingersnap Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
These. Are. Delicious! I used butter instead of shortening and added a tsp of cloves and I am swatting hands left and right to keep them away from the cookies! Thank you for an awesome keeper of a recipe!

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2009
This was delicious!! I made it as posted with three exceptions: I use "Better Than Bullion" as opposed to beef bullion or beef broth, added a clove of minced garlic and all I had in the house was Colby cheese. This goes in the permanent file!

Strawberry Vanilla Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2009
This was a delicious recipe, I couldn't get the pancakes off the griddle and cooled fast enough for my family! Changes made: soured the milk with lemon juice, 2 TBS applesauce for the oil, reduced salt to 1/4 tsp, increased brown sugar to 3 TBS and added a dash of cinnamon. I let the batter sit for about 5 minutes and it thickened up nicely.

Fry Bread Tacos II

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2009
These were delicious!!! I used Pace Picante Medium and it gave things just enough of a spice for our family. My two year old and four year old scarfed these up, as did my husband and I. Definitely a keeper!!

Kabritu Stoba (Dutch Antilles Goat Stew)

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2009
I'm not sure what flavor this was supposed to have, but the end product was not to our liking. I won't even attempt this again.

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
This is really good basic chili! I didn't have tomato juice, so I substituted 32oz tomato sauce and 6oz tomato paste. I have little ones, so omitted the cayenne and monkeyed with the rest of the seasonings to taste, including using brown sugar instead of white. Will definitely make again with who knows what modifications! Thanks, George!

Dutch Apple Pie with Oatmeal Streusel

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2008
Yum. Yum. Yum. This is the first time I have ever made an apple pie from scratch, and the family raved. I did change the seasonings: no lemon zest in the topping, and I doubled the cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg and did just under a cup of sugar.

Zucchini-Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2008
This is a fantastic way to use up zucchini. I make mini-muffins, as opposed to full-sized, and my kids (and husband) eat them up! My changes: a dash of nutmeg, dash of ginger, dash of cloves. A 4oz cup of applesauce with a splash of oil to complete the 1/2 cup and brown sugar instead of white.

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2007
This was a delicious, light, fluffy mid-week breakfast treat. I did add a dash of vanilla to the batter, and warmed the dairy and egg to at least room temperature. Scaled the recipe for three servings and it was plenty for myself, a one year old and three year old with a few left over. This one is going into the pancake rotation for sure!

Chili Dog Casserole II

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2007
This recipe is so fast, easy and tasty that it is a must on my list! My picky two year old ate an entire serving on her own, my husband had seconds! I addeed 1/4 of a large onion finely diced throughout the chili and inside the tortillas, also put down a layer of taco cheese inside each tortilla before wrapping the hot dog, yum-o! Thanks for a family-pleaser!

Bread Machine Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2007
9/16/07: This is the first time I have ever been able to make a restaurant-style pizza at home. The whole family raved about it, and I am getting ready to use this dough to make another pizza for dinner tonight - second time in three days! I used a pinch of Italian Seasoning in the beer for extra flavor and baked on a pizza stone, which only took 15 minutes. Definitely do a light coating of grease to prevent sticking. Updated 8/25/09: This is still my standard, but I have switched from flat beer to milk. I found that beer can give the dough a bit of a bitter flavor, where the milk gives it a bit of sweet. I split the dough in half for a thin, crsipy crust (and save the other half in the fridge for pizza later in the week).

Tiramisu II

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2007
This recipe is amazing! I brewed 3/4 cup of super strong espresso, added 4 TBS of Kahlua and brushed half on each layer of ladyfingers with a pastry brush then let it sit for two days. I have never had such delicious tiramisu in my life!!!

Banana Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2007
This recipe is delicious! We are trying to cut back on junk in the house, but still need a little "fluff" to go with tea, and this fit the bill quite nicely. Just remember that this is a bran muffin, not a cakey-sweet one! Changes made: used All Bran cereal, soaked in the orange juice (light) to soften and added to wet ingredients. Substituted strawberry-banana applesauce for the oil, added 1 tsp of vanilla. Used 1C white, 1C wheat flour. Pureed four small bananas, chunked three small bananas. To a few, added a dollop of local dark honey to top of muffin prior to baking.
