Chocolate Pudding Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2009
I have made this pie a few times, if I'm pressed for time. I use instant pudding for the filling and Cool Whip for the topping, but GUMMI WORMS??? I don't think so. I have found that a "cooked" chocolate pudding, using evaporated milk instead of regular milk, will result in a much richer and better tasting pie.

Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2009
I've been making this apple cake for many years and have never had it fail. For my own personal taste, I usually add an extra teaspoon of cinnamon, as well as 1 Cup of chopped pecans or walnuts. Raisins are also a nice addition. I usually use about 1/2 cup. The dough will be very stiff and require mixing by hand with a heavy duty wooden spoon. You can use a 9 X 13 greased and floured pan or a 10-12 Cup Bundt Pan. If using a bundt pan, bake at 350 degrees for 55 to 65 minutes or until the cake tests done using a toothpick or cake tester inserted about 2 inches from the edge. Tester should come out clean (free of dough). Also, if using a bundt pan, you will have to scoop dough from bowl and pack it evenly into cake pan. This is easy to do if you wet your hands first.

Chrissy's Sweet 'n' Sour Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
We've been eating tomatoes all summer long from our garden, so now that it's September and we are still picking tomatoes, I thought a tomato salad every now and them would be good. I tweeked Chrissy's recipe a is what we like. Using 6 or 7 good sized tomatoes, I also add thinly sliced Vidalia onion, chopped green peppers, sweet red peppers, and cucumbers all from my garden. For the dressing I use about 1/2 Cup extra virgin olive oil, 1/3 Cup red wine vinegar, salt, pepper, garlic powder and a dash of oregano to taste. I let this marinate at room temp for an hour or so. The flavors are so much better served at room temp. No doubt you'll have some dressing left over after all the veggies have been eaten up. Don't hesitate to dip your favorite bread in this concoction, very yummy. We like tangy dressings. Your tastes might require that you add a bit of sugar, but I don't think you'll need as much as the original recipe calls for.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2009
Ms Colleen; Thank you so much for the most yummy recipe. I had almost given up on finding a GOOD blueberry muffin recipe. I'm happy to say, "My search has ended". I doubled the recipe as one person suggested, and added a splash of vanilla. I used jumbo muffin tins and sprayed them generously with Pam cooking spray, and filled them 3/4 full, and sprinkled tops with cinnamon and sugar them. Just remember don't overmix!

Marzetti® Hawaiian Slaw

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2009
I'm not usually a big fan of coleslaw, but hubby loves it. Today I prepared this recipe, with only a couple of changes. It called for nuts, I used cashews. I threw in some dried cranberries along with the raisins, and a sprinkle or two of sesame seeds. The only major change was substituting a wonderful low-fat Mango Poppyseed Dressing instead of Marzetti's Cole Slaw Dressing. Without a doubt this recipe received rave reviews! Hubby said this is good enough to have for dessert. In our house, that is a very high compliment!

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2007
These cookies are absolutely deeelicious!! The only change I made in the recipe was that I used butter instead of margarine. If you like a soft and chewy ginger cookie, you certainly won't be disappointed with this cookie. It has the right combination of spices, (including cloves, which I dislike). This cookie is easily in my Top 10 Favorite Cookies.

Cinnamon Hazelnut Biscotti

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2006
Absolutely yummy! These were a *hit* at Christmas. Since my family loves cinnamon, I added an extra teaspoon. Now this is my idea of *comfort food*
