Bacon Wrapped Smokies

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2007
We like our bacon very crisp, so I had to bake these a LOT longer. But my teens loved them, and I have made them many times.

Banana Cream Pie Made Easy

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2007
I found the pie too rich for my taste. Perhaps I'm just not a banana cream pie lover...... Certainly was easy to make.

Boston Iced Tea

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2007
This is absolutely terrific served icy cold! Intense full flavor. I used Splenda and 12 cold brew tea bags. I was hoping to cut down on the sweetener - but you really do need a full cup to counter the bitterness of the cranberry juice. I will be making this all the time. Just be sure to serve it VERY COLD. It doesn't taste that great lukewarm.

Parmesan Chicken II

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2007
My kids hated this. My husband said it was "OK." The drumsticks were goopy in the baking pan, and the bottom of the chicken was soggy. I'm going to try it again with chicken breasts on an elevated baking rack (so that the chicken doesn't sit in its own fat while baking). Also, my drumsticks were pretty large, and they required extra cooking time. Perhaps, that was part of the problem. I think the taste was good, but the texture and look of the chicken really turned my family off.

Sugar-Free Raisin Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2007
I make a lot of sugar-free recipes, and this one is excellent! These bars are moist, delicate, tasty, and very sweet. Don't skip the step of cooking the raisings and margarine in the hot water. This step really releases the sweetness of the raisins into the recipe, and the raisings will be SOOOO tender in the finished product. I actually am going to cut back on the splenda from 1/2 cup to 1/4 cup next time, as I don't like my food quite as sweet as this one was. Still 5 stars!

Aunt Kate's Green Beans in Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2007
I think the dish tasted rather bland. We ate it, but I won't make it again.

Mom's Warm Milk

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2006
Very satisfying. I made it with Splenda, but I cut the amount in half. I liked it better that way.

No Sugar Apple Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2006
I love this apple pie. I make it with apple cider instead of apple concentrate, and it is awesome! My entire family begs for it. Just be careful of the amount of apple cider, or the pie will boil over like crazy. Cook it on a cookie sheet. This is the only apply pie that I make now.

Beef Barley Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2006
Excellent and easy. I cooked 2 lbs. of chuck in crockpot for 5 hours the evening before I wanted to serve the soup. (Sprayed crockpot with Pam first.) After cooking, I smashed the beef into shreds (in the crockpot with a spoon.) Then, after sauteeing the vegetables, I put everything in the crockpot (including the uncooked pearl barley) and put the crock in the frig. I skipped the sugar, and used 2 extra cups of beef broth plus a couple generous dashes of Worcestershire Sauce. When I woke up the next day, I turned the crock on low and cooked the soup all day. Everyone loved it! I will make this again and again. After reading a few of the other reviews, I'm wondering if some of the reviewers who complained about mushy barley had inadvertently used instant barley in their soup. Whole pearl long-cooking barley holds up much better than instant barley.

Ham Bone Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2005
Good soup recipe, with modifications. I left out the green pepper (since we don't like it). I used a huge meaty hambone, and the soup was salty because of it. However, that didn't bother me. The broth, however, seemed kind of lifeless. After I added 8 oz. of tomato sauce, we really like the soup! I'll make this again, but I'll definitely add the tomato sauce.
