Pumpkin Muffins II

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2007
I make 2/3 of a recipe because a full recipe is too much for one 12cup muffin pan. I cut the spices and salt in half. I add nuts and raisins also. I substite part of the white flour with 1 c oatmeal and 1/4 c ground flax seed. Now, you have 5 stars and better nutrition too.

Chicken with Lemon-Caper Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2007
I would advise you to try this with 1 T capers first before using 2T, and perhaps 1T of lemon juice. The capers and lemon are very tart together. I added 2T cream and 1/2 t cornstarch because I wanted my sauce thicker and more like a creamy lemon caper sauce. It was too tart, so I added 2T butter. Although that did not keep it from being tart, it still did taste good, because I like capers, but I think I will search for a more reliable recipe next time. The sauce was good on the fish and on plain zucchini.

Cranberry-Jalapeno Relish

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2007
This was perfect to go with a Southwest turkey. I tried fresh cranberries and that was pretty tart, so I added 2T honey. I used the zest of the orange and lime also and chopped it fine. I chopped it all by hand, but still needed to give it a pulse or two in the food processor. This was also good with tortilla chips. 1/2 c orange juice is one orange, and 1/4 c lime juice is one line. I used 1 clove garlic. I look forward to trying it with dry cranberries also sometime. Can easily make a day or two ahead. Thanks! It's a fantastic recipe!

Sarah Contona's Sweet Potato Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
I increased the sugar to 3/4 c because I'm not sure that this dish was intended to be a dessert. I added 1 t cinnamon and 2T whisky. 1.5 T vanilla was enough. I put it through my food processor to make it smoother. Crust: I needed a few T more butter for the crust. I added 1/2 c finely chopped pecans to the crust. I wasn't sure it if was supposed to go up the sides but I did get it up the sides about an inch. When the pie was done, I added the marshmallows and put the broiler on to very lightly brown the marshmallows, then chilled it. I called it sweet potato cheesecake. Even the kids liked it (the marshmallows helped).

Calamari in Red Wine and Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2007
I did not use tomato sauce, I used diced tomatoes. Everything looked great until I added the calamari, which made it as watery as soup. I could not thicken it, and the calmari was rubbery. I definitely did not overcook them. Must be a bad squid. Oh well. . .

Real Hummus

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2006
This is my recipe and when I made it again I found that it does have too much salt and that I needed to add olive oil and water to the mixture in the food processor, I made a small batch of it.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2006
I would like to thank you for this recipe. I have made many different versions of it. . . I have about 20 flavors so far and have tried several, I make a new one each week. I vary the ingredients considerably, but your recipe was the inspiration. I like the high protein in this bar. It sticks with you.

Mom's Turkey Sausage Patties

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2006
This makes a delicious and tender breakfast sausage which I plan to make again, and stuff into links! The seasoning is great, although I used a bit less salt. I used 1.25 pounds of turkey, and mades 10 two-oz patties, and one patty is a serving (half the nutrition data shown). I mention this because people looking for turkey sausage are often on a diet. You need to leave room for your pancake calories too.

Cabbage Jambalaya

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2004
For a 3 qt crockpot, use 2-4 slices bacon, chopped, 1 lb smoky sausage, sliced, 1 onion, 2 cloves garlic, 1/2 head green cabbage, Saute in dutch oven to wilt the cabbage. Add 1/2 c rice, 3 tomatoes, 1 c V-8 juice (or a can of tomatoes), 1 can blackeyed peas for the best New Year's Day meal ever. 5 hours on high. Cornbread is a great side for this. Suggestions to add rotel or green chiles a good idea, try a touch of sour cream on your plate. Terrific, man-pleaser.

Cornish Game Hens with Olive Rice Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2003
I omitted the olives and O.J. Instead try some chestnuts, more walnuts, cranberries, or some chopped pear. The pears, blue cheese, and walnuts are great together. Stunning entree with a roasted pear on the side.

Slow Cooker Venison Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2003
My family says it's the best venison recipe I've ever tried. It's really terrific. It's also the first time I've used a crockpot. I will definitely be making this again. I might try using other meats too! I chopped the meat with a knife at the end, that made it pull apart very easily. It looks saucy while it's cooking, but in the end the pulled meat absorbs the sauce and it's perfect. I did put the cooker on high last two hours to be sure it got done on time because I have a tough deer. Thanks very much for posting this recipe.

Alaska Salmon Bake with Pecan Crunch Coating

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2003
If you're looking for an impressive dish to serve company (or to spoil your family any time), this is it. You can round the honey and parsley up to the next tablespoon; measurements don't matter too much. Food processor makes topping prep a snap (but don't process it too long--a few pulses will do). Serve with an oaky chardonnay or even champagne. Have made this a few times with other fish; always great. A must-try and must-add to your recipe box.

Kumquat Marmalade

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2003
Beautiful sparkling marmalade just like from the store. This recipe has 4 stars only for confusion because it made me nervous while making it. You could however go to the trouble to remove the peel from the quartered oranges, scrape off more of the white part, and then slice the peel with a knife, if you want to remove any bitter taste, but its good as is. Dont bother rechopping kumquats (just slice them on a mandolin). I wonder why it says to add water and soak overnighta step not called for in other recipes. I decided to add a packet of regular pectin as insurance on warning of another reviewer, at about 218 degrees (never could reach 220 degrees). Highly recommend the pectin; texture is perfect.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2003
No wonder this recipe has 200 reviews. It is the perfect rolled sugar cookie for any occasion, in our case, Christmas. The taste and texture are perfect, just what I was looking for (for years I have been looking), and the dough handles well. Good thing it is a large batch. You might even want to make a bigger batch if you give away cookies as gifts or have a large family with an extended holiday get-together season--we ran out before our all our family could get together because we gave away some as gifts. It makes about two big tins.

French Fruitcake

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2003
This is the second year I have made this recipe for the holidays. I used double the rum. I used golden raisins and currants. I used a mixture of lemon and orange peels. After baking I dunked the cakes in rum and let them soak some up. Then gave them time to mellow. Slices best when cold. My grandmother was French, and this recipe is close to what she made, according to my mother. Thanks for the recipe!
