Dessert Crepes

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2012
I hate to bring the recipes ratings down. Especially when so many other people rate it so high. (That is the reason I tried this recipe!) And this was my first attempt at crepes. But this was a complete flop at my house. They were VERY eggy. And as I look at other recipes on the internet and I don't see any others that call for 4 eggs. I tried serving them with sweeten cream cheese, jam, fresh blueberries, chocolate sauce....no one liked any version. My youngest kept calling them omelets because of the egg taste. They were very easy to make and cooked up well. So I had to give a couple of stars. I might try this again with less eggs...

Baked French Toast

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
Disapointed. First, this should be called Caramel French Toast. I wasn't at all expecting such a strong caramel flavor. Secondly, the caramel topping became hard and chewy and stuck in my teeth. And lastly, way, way too sweet. I was not at all worried about the reviews saying this was too sweet. I'm someone who loves pancakes to practically float in maple syrup. But this was far too sweet for me! I'm not sure I even want to experiment with the recipe since it was so far from the regular baked french toast I was looking for.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2010
Wow, were these good! I proofed a package of active dry yeast with 1/4 cup sugar and the milk heated to 110 degrees. Then I added the remainder of the dough ingredients and mixed with the dough hook in my stand mixer. I finished kneading a little bit by hand. Then I put it in a greased glass bowl covered loosely with greased plastic wrap. I put it in the oven that I had preheated to 200 degrees and turned off for 1 hour. I did as another user suggested and mixed the butter with the brown sugar and cinnamon. Then I just spread this on the dough. My husband talked me into cutting them into just 8 rolls. They were huge - just like real Cinnabons. I made them the night before, covered and refridgerated, pulled them right out of the fridge in the morning and popped them in a cold oven that I then set to heat to 350 degreees. In about 25 minutes, they were brown on top. (My oven does cook a little hot.) They were outstanding. My husband thought the dough could have been a little richer to be just like a Cinnabon but the cinnamon filling and icing were right on.

Three Cheese Baked Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2010
Found this when I was looking for a last minute recipe that called for ground beef. It was so easy and I had all of the ingredients on hand. The only changes I made were to add 1 tsp of minced garlic, 1 tsp of italian seasoning (the sauce I used wasn't that flavorful), 8 oz of sliced mozarella (because that is what I had on hand), and 8 oz of italian blend shredded cheese. The sour cream is what definitely makes this recipe different. I think next time I might add a can of italian diced tomatoes for more tomato flavor. Also, I might divide it up amoung two dishes as my 9x13 was pretty full.

Bacon Mushroom Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2010
My picky husband loved this! And it was so easy to make! I used 4 boneless chicken breasts, doubled everything else except the garlic (I used 4 cloves) and the heavy cream (I used 1 cup). I pre-cooked the bacon in the microwave for 3 minutes, as another reviewer suggested. I also crumbled up the bacon and added it to the sauce. I thickened the sauce with 1 Tbsp of corn starch. My husband wants me to make more sauce next time and serve the chicken cut in bite size pieces over noodles. This will definitely be a regular meal in our house!

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2010
I would give this 5 stars but I did have to make a few changes. I reduce the honey to 1.5 tsp, omit the anchovy paste, reduce the cayenne pepper to 1/16 tsp, omit the red pepper flakes and add 1/4 tsp salt. The pepper and anchovy were just my families tastes. But I do believe there is way too much honey in this recipe. I never buy canned pizza sauce anymore. This is my go to recipe.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2010
No wonder this recipe has 5 stars with 3454 reviews! I made this recently for my sister-in-law and her family when they came to visit. They raved about it. I was told to look no further for the perfect pumpkim bread recipe because this was it! I agree! This is so moist and flavorful. I did substitute 1/2 cup of the oil for applesauce. But that usually doesn't make a difference except reduce the fat. It tasted like something you would get at a high-end bakery. The next time I will definity have to make more to freeze since we ate up both loaves (in 9x5 pans)!

Sauteed Apples

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
I grew up eating my Mom's southern "fried apples" using apples, butter, sugar and cinnamon. I later made my own version using brown sugar instead of white and also adding nutmeg. This recipe is great! I doubled this recipe for a 3 lb. bag of apples (about 7 large apples). I didn't double the water because I wanted to make sure the syrup was thick enough. I also added 1 tsp. of vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg. I used Empire apples and the flavor was outstanding! I serve this as a side dish/dessert when we have pork. I reserved some this time to serve with waffles I want to make this weekend. This would be great with ice cream or even recipes calling for apple pie filling.

Baked French Toast

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
Made as directed. I was weary of the caramel sauce. I thought it would be too sticky sweet. But the sauce was really good! The dish was much better with the caramel sauce vs. maple syrup. Next time I will try using large cubes of french bread and tossing the apples in the spice/sugar mix before topping so that all of the apples get some of the spice/sugar. (Also, I used Granny Smith apples and they seemed too tart. I will try a less tart apple next time.)

Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
I scaled this so I could use 2 lbs. of ground beef. I added extra crackers (one sleeve of Ritz crackers - about 1/4 lb.) and used 3 eggs. It didn't set up as firm as I had hoped. I used the glaze another reviewer suggested (3 T. ketchup, 1 T. honey and 1/2 t. Worcestershire sauce) and it was great. I used mild cheddar but next time I might try some mozzarella, too. It was pretty good for basic meatloaf but it almost seemed like it was missing something to give it a little "zing."

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
These turned out great. I love the fact that they are crispy on the edges and soft in the middle. I used a tablespoon sized cookie scoop and got 5 dozen cookies. I also had to bake for 11 minutes because I used parchment paper.

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
A friend brought this to one of our parties. It was so addicting, I had to have the recipe! You need to use real butter if you want this to be hard enough to make a cheese ball. To make it a spread, as we often do, use margarine.

Ziti with Italian Sausage

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2008
I make this recipe regularly. It's easy and very tasty. I use 28 oz. cans of both tomato sauce and tomatoes. I also double the spices but I cut back the salt to 2 teaspoons. I also double the onion. I usually leave out the celery as I don't usually have it on hand. But I have made it both ways and it is great with or without. I always add the sauce to the pan with my sausage. Then I mix in the pasta. I layer half of the mixture with 2 cups mozzarella and then the remainder with another 2 cups of mozzarella and top with the Parmesan. (My family loves cheese!) I only bake it about 35 minutes to keep the top from drying out too much. ***Don't miss out on the sauce by using a jar of pasta sauce. The sauce is very easy to make and tastes great!

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2008
I followed the recipe exactly and came out with perfect cookies. I used a tablespoon sized cookie scoop and baked them for exactly 8 minutes. They came out nice and soft - but not too soft. They were great!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2008
This is the best cut-out cookie recipe. My husband raved for years about his mom's recipe. He would eat dozens of them in one sitting! That was until I tried this recipe. Then his mom asked me for the recipe!!

Libby's® Pumpkin Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2008
I love these cookies! I make them every year. I am not wild about nuts so I use a cup of mini chocolate chips. I used a tablespoon sized cookie scoop and had about 72 cookies. I don't know if it was the combination of my oven and the fact that I use parchment paper but I have to bake them for 16 1/2 minutes. They are soft cake-like cookies that are soooo addictive!! UPDATE 12/14/10 - I usually use orange extract instead of grated orange peel. I increase the orange flavor by using 1/2 teaspoon of the extract in the dough. I also use 1/4 tsp of orange extract in the glaze. Make sure to sift your powdered sugar. It does help the glaze not be as runny. I like to keep them in the refrigerator. They also freeze quite well! I think next time I make these, I will try diced dried cranberries instead of the chocolate chips!
