Soft Christmas Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2003
This dough is very easy to work with. The cookies have a great taste, but are not as soft as I had hoped. The cookies do soften nicely when frosted and allowed to sit for a day (if you can keep the kids from eating them!)

Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2003
Thank you for providing a "launch pad" for reconstructing my Grandmother's coconut cream pie recipe. This one set up nicely -- I did cook the custard a little longer than recommended -- and has a nice coconut flavor. A little too much flour, though. Next time, I'll use egg yolks only and cut down on the flour. Also, plan to use meringue like Grandma did, instead of whipped cream to provide a little more contrast of textures. Added a couple of tablespoons of toasted coconut to the dry ingredients in the pie crust - yummy.

Mardi Gras King Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2004
Yummy! Especially good still slightly warm. Much better than the mail order one we got from the bakery in New Orleans. Will definitely make this one again next year. I made the batter, let it rise, and formed it into the rings the night before, then put it in the 'fridge. The next morning, I let it come to room temperature, rise, then baked them for the normal time.

Cornish Game Hens with Garlic and Rosemary

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2004
Delicious! Served this for Christmas dinner with garlic mashed potatoes. Increased the sauce ingredients as several other reviewers suggested, which gave us enough to use as gravy. Will definitely fix again.

Moist Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2005
excellent! I don't own a bread machine, so I made the dough in my trusty kitchen-aid mixer. It didn't take as long to rise as the recipe called for. I did a normal 1-hour first rising, punched it down and let it rise for another half hour, then shaped it and let it rise in the pan for only about 1/2 hour. Will make this one again.

Crispy Orange Beef

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2005
This was quite good. Very quick and easy to prepare. It helps to partially freeze the beef before cutting it into strips. The only change I made to the recipe was that I went ahead and added an entire bag of the pre-cut broccoli instead of just 8 florets as garnish. We'll make it again.

Apple Crisp IV

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2006
wonderful! a very easy apple crisp. My family likes more "apple" than "crisp", so I cut the "crisp" to 1/3 of what the recipe called for, and just sprinkled it on the top. Planning to make this one in a dutch oven on our next camping trip. Thanks for sharing!

Red Wine Flavored Beef

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2006
Yum! Thanks for sharing. I use a "california roast", and add some sauteed onions, a couple of bay leaves, a bit of thyme, and some canned mushrooms. I also use the whole envelope of onion soup mix.

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2007
my guys loved this one. Husband's only complaint was that there wasn't enough sauce. Must admit I cheated a bit -- my son's palate is a bit wimpy, so I used Heinz Chili Sauce instead of hot sauce. It was still yummy

Pecan Tassies

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2008
This is now our official family Christmas cookie. I follow the instructions exactly except that I use real butter instead of margarine. The dough is very sticky. Chilling it overnight helps make it easier to handle. The thicker the pastry is in the muffin cup, the easier it is to remove it from the pan intact after baking. Nonstick pans sprayed with cooking spray are a must.

Banana Pudding I

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2009
I was looking for a recipe that didn't call for instant pudding, and this is a good one. Not quite sure why a 9x13 dish was called for...I was able to fit it quite nicely into a refrigerator dish with room to spare. Also, it's much better if allowed to sit in the refrigerator over night. Will definitely make again, but will reduce the number of cookies, and increase the number of bananas.

No-Fuss Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
I fixed these for breakfast this morning as I hadn't been to the store yet, and was out of about everything, including eggs and all-purpose flour. Don't let the small amount of batter fool you -- they rise beautifully, and the recipe really will make 6. They're on the plain side, so serve with jam, etc.

Spanish Rice Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
This has become a staple at our house. The only change I've made is to add a bit more water. Also, don't bother with putting it into a casserole dish -- take the lid off, add the cheese, and turn the heat off. Let the cheese melt, then serve it right from the skillet. One less dish to wash!

Amazing Pecan Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2010
I'm not sure that it's amazing, but it's quite good. The cake has a lovely, light texture and delicate flavor. I'm not sure why the instruction to line the pan with foil is there, unless it's to help the bottom of the cake brown -- I fixed this in my normal glass baking pan coated with nonstick spray, and it came out just fine.

Ground Beef N Rice Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
I've used a similar recipe for years here at home. One thing that I've changed from the original is that I cook the ground beef "crust" until it's nearly done and drain off the grease before adding the rice filling. I also don't add any cheese to the rice, just put it all on top at the end of cooking where it does the most good;) It's also fun to vary this one using taco seasoning and adding a layer of refried beans between the meat and the rice. Top with minced green onions and sour cream.

New Duchess Spice Cake with Maple Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2010
The cake itself is delicious and moist, with a wonderful texture. The smell of the cake baking had my son's mouth watering. We couldn't wait any longer and iced it while it was still slightly warm. I did make a couple of small changes -- I used all butter instead of butter and shortening, and half the quantity of icing was perfect for the sheet cake version. YUM! Next time, I will add some ginger and some allspice to the batter. To those who claim the cake is dry, I suspect that you're using too much flour. Make sure to sift it thoroughly BEFORE measuring.

Wonderful Waffles

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2010
Other reviewers were correct: this is NOT a project for a weekday morning, unless said weekday morning is a holiday. That said, the waffles were very, very good. They tasted wonderful, and the texture, although different from "mix" waffles, was not displeasing. My husband prefers crispier waffles, so I melted the butter (I'm not sure why this works, but it does!) and baked his for a little longer. The recipe makes more than the three of us can consume on a Saturday morning, so I'll wrap the leftovers and we'll have them tomorrow. The only complaint (from our teenager) is that the waffles were a little "eggy". Next time, I'll try it with only two yolks. Vanilla might make a nice addition, but I don't think it's necessary. Will definitely make again.
