Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2013
I like the fact that this frosting isn't overly sweet. Used this frosting with Sam's Famous Carrot Cake also on this website and it was great!

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
i love banana bread and now this is my favorite recipe for it. i didnt have sour cream on hand but had heavy whipping cream so i whipped up a cup and added 1 tsp of lemon juice to it. it turned out really good. i also used pecans instead of walnuts.

Food for the Gods

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2005
yummy! i followed the recipe as it is and it turned out great. because it is so rich, i only make this around christmas time in place of the more traditional fruit cake.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2005
i only had chocolate pudding and it turned out really good. i did add a tsp. of salt to the batch that i made, which was half the recipe. use paddle to mix in dry ingredients gradually for the dough to really come together.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
i agree with most viewers that you can add anything (within reason) to this soup and it will still be good. since i didnt have any celery, i used a can of cream of celery instead. i also didnt use any chicken flavorings because i used ham bone leftover from a spiral ham we had for dinner. i also added chopped green onions towards the end for color. great recipe!

Brunswick Stew

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2003
This was very good. I substituted salt pork with virginia bacon and the lima beans with blackeye peas. I omitted the corn, and added diced green bell pepper and beans. Definitely a keeper!

Chocolate Trifle

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
everyone thought this was really good - the one drawback is that you can only eat so much of it. i followed some of the suggestions - i added bailey's cream and used real cream instead of cool whip. if i had used the cool whip maybe it wouldnt have been as rich as it was. however, if you are a chocoholic, this recipe is for you.

Quinoa with Veggies

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2008
both my husband and i love the flavors of this dish. as the recipe states, you can use almost any vegetable that you have on hand. i used garlic, red onion, fresh corn cut from the cob, red bell pepper and celery. i also used red quinoa which, i think, takes more time to cook than white quinoa. awesome recipe!

Simple to make, but very tasty. I added 1/2 cup of heavy cream towards the end to make for a creamier texture.

Oranged Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
i did this recipe once before but didnt rate/review it. i love this recipe - it is a good introduction for a non-cranberry sauce lover. update: i decided to make this again for thanksgiving 2008. this time i used the zest of 1 orange and the juice of 1 orange instead of oj. i also put 3/4 c. white and 3/4 c. brown sugar. i added only 2/3 c. water and i think it this helped in the making the consistency a little thicker. absolutely delicious!

Rotelle Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2007
i've had pasta salads before and never really cared for them because i found them too oily and sour for my taste. i was tempted to make this recipe because it had vegetables in it which i found interesting. this recipe turned out to be really good. i used skinless chicken breast instead of turkey. i also used grated parmesan cheese instead of cheddar. i thought about making my own italian dressing but decided to use paul newman's family recipe instead. i also used hormel's real bacon instead of making my own bacon bits.

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
I used the french pastry pie recipe for this pie - I added 1/2 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. cinnamon and 1/2 tsp nutmeg to the sauce and had no problems with the color at all. The sauce, combined with the french pastry pie, is what makes this pie so good. Next time I make this, I will do what others did by combining half the sauce with the apples and pour the other half over the lattice top.

Asian Salmon

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2002
I prefer to do this dish with a tad more brown sugar. I wondered about the olive oil and sesame oil and thought it an odd mix, but the flavors really blended well in this dish. I always loved the combination of soy sauce and garlic, anyway.

Pork Butt Roast with Vegetables

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2006
this was really good! i did add a lot of garlic and celery with the onions. my husband doesn't like mushrooms so i omitted them altogether. i am not a great fan of gravy so i did not even bother to reduce the liquids to make it. this is definitely a keeper.

French Pastry Pie Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
I decided to make my own crust because I couldn't find any at the frozen section at our local store. I am so glad I made that decision because this is the best pie crust - together with grandma ople's apple pie recipe, this was a match made in heaven. I will always use this pie crust from now on.
