Banana Cream Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2010
This was a very easy recipe to make and the pudding was delicious warm (I couldn't leave it alone!). However after chilling it was much much much too sweet, the pie was almost inedible. I also too other reviewers advice and used the cornstarch and I did not bake the pie (certainly prebaked the shell), I chilled it for several hours and it came out perfect.

Veggie Pot Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2010
Absolutely positively delicious! I didn't think pot pie could taste so delicious. I used the little Trader Joe's concentrated broth packets for the broth. I also added couple handfuls of dried mixed mushrooms chopped into small pieces (instead of fresh) and used the soaking water for the water component of the broth. I also used my favorite pie crust, the No Roll Pie Crust II recipe from this site as my crusts, I whipped two up in under 5 minutes and didn't have to roll anything. Other than all that chopping this is a super simple recipe. Absolutely rich and flavorful and every bit as savory as a meat dish and super filling. I love it and will definitely be making it again soon.

No Roll Pie Crust II

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2010
This pie crust comes out perfect EVERY TIME! My mom's even rolled it and it came out great. So simple and consistent results earn this top marks from me. It's also super quick, I turned out two crusts for a pot pie tonight in about 5 minutes. The only thing I do differently is to mix it up in a separate bowl first.

Vintage Lemonade

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2010
Lovely lemonade. The lemon oil adds extra depth and gives this lemonade a handsome yellow shade without any food coloring. My family went crazy for this when I made it. I absolutely love this recipe. Thanks to reviewers for the tip on not messing with the zest and sugar, they are so RIGHT! Totally recommend this recipe to friends whenever I get the chance! Thanks so much for sharing!!

Italian Summer Squash Polenta Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2010
Delicious dish made with fresh from the garden summer squash! My mom raved about it and even my dad (who turns his nose up at everything) ate it and proclaimed it was good. Super simple and quick to throw together I will definitely be making this again.

Vanilla Half-Moons

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
Simple and delicious cookie recipe. I was looking for something to use up some vanilla beans and this worked well. I will definitely be making these again around the holiday season to share with friends and family.

German Brotchen Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
I'm fairly new to bread making. These rolls came out AWESOME! I followed the instructions and they came out shiny with a nice crusty exterior and light fluffy interior. I will definitely make these again, it's totally worth the effort.

All Pumpkins' Night Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
Simple and delicious stew recipe. At first I wasn't sure about all the caraway but it takes on a mellower flavor after simmering all day. I cooked my stew in the crockpot. I browned the beef and cooked the onions as per the recipe and dumped it into the crock. I ommited 2 cups of the broth and cooked it on high the first two hours then kicked it to low and let it go all day and it came out fabulous. Lovely autumn dinner!

Beef Pho

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2006
I loved this Pho recipe! It turned out wonderfully, it actually tasted like pho! I have made pho before (even using the predone cube sachets and beef broth to try to spice it up) and it has turned out miserable and tasteless. But this recipe tasted almost identical to my fave pho restraunt (I am proud of myself!). I ommitted the daikon since I didn't have it on hand and I didn't use the oxtail. I used some large meaty bones from the butcher at the local asian market and they were perfect for a half sized recipe. I followed everything else to a "T" and it was well worth the 6 1/2 hours it took the broth to cook and it smelled wonderful (after I added the spices). Even my picky roommate loved it! (and he hates my cooking most of the time! :P)
