Yummy Honey Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: May 26, 2007
We loved these. I did not add the veges-only the chicken, which was marinaded for a day. I took it to a potluck and it was the first thing eaten up. I think the veges might detract. (That is just my opinion.)They were not dry at all. Maybe those who found it dry overcooked it a bit?

Herman Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: May 12, 2007
These are wonderful! A friend had passed on some starter for Amish Friendship bread, but I didn't feel like making the bread. I am glad I chose this recipe instead. I topped it with cream cheese icing and opted out of adding the nuts and raisins. I am having one now for a snack and I think it is the best cinnamon roll I have ever had. Thank you.

Chocolate Mint Sugar Cookie Drops

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2006
Yum! Nice and light. I had a bag if white chocolate mint chips and came here to find a recipe to use them in. I had a hard time with the dough being way too sticky to roll ito balls at room temp, so the rest of the dough is currently chilling in the fridge. These particular chips have little red and green non-pareils on them, so the cookies have a festive look to them.

Creamy Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2006
Yummy! Very easy to put together in a hurry. I had everything in my pantry/fridge already.(Love when that happens!) I did add some sauteed onion, garic salt, and a small can of mushrooms. I subbed bow tie pasta for the noodles. Thanks!

Chocolate Zucchini Bread II

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2006
Good flavor but it is dry. I halved the recipe because I only had enough zucchini for one loaf. Since 1 1/2 eggs is a pain to deal with, I did 2 and it worked fine. I also omitted the walnuts. I think this is fine without them. I think I will add some sour cream or buttermilk to see if that will make it moister. (Or keep looking for a better recipe.)

Apple Pie Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2006
These are delicious! I am not sure what role the cornflakes play, I could not taste them and there was not a texture difference in the bottom crust... As for the sogginess-after-two-days issue, I reheated them for 15 minutes at 250 degrees, then upped the temp to 350 for another 10 minutes or so and the crust "freshened up". They were a hit with our Bible Study Small Group. I also liked the way the glaze hardened in the oven after the second heating, so I might add it 1/2way thru next time. (If serving it to a crowd) Thanks!

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2006
These are very good. I think it needs a little bit more flavor- maybe a teaspoon or two of vanilla? I will put this into my recipe book! Thanks!

Soft Sugar Cookies IV

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2006
Yummy! I am 36 weeks pregnant and was craving soft sugar cookies. This recipe fit the bill. They did seem a tad salty to me, but overall very good. I will keep this recipe! I used the bottom of a glass to flatten slightly and baked on parchment paper.

Warm Apple Buttermilk Custard Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2006
Delicious! We couldn't wait for it to cool all the way before tasting it... Very rich and sweet. Upon the advice of other reviewers, I reduced the sugar to 1 cup in the custard. (I used Granny Smith)I also cut the butter and sugar in half to cook the apples. The streusel is very good, maybe a little too sugary also. Anyway, this is very good and I cannot wait to have some in the morning- when it has cooled and "set". Thanks!

Chinese Cabbage Salad I

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2006
Very good! I added toasted sesame seeds and did put the seasoning packet contents in the dressing, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Dh and I think the toasted cashew "make" this. Delicious!

Easy Chicken Tetrazzini

Reviewed: May 15, 2006
I would have to give this 3.5 stars. It was good and certainly easy enough. I did alter the recipe quite a bit.(So it may have been better as written, but I think it would be bland w/o the additional flavors.) I added some leftover sauted mushrooms & steamed broccoli, used 1 can of Cream of Chicken soup and 1 can of Cream of Mushroom with Roasted Garlic soup, and used a can of Vegetable broth instead of the water and boullion. I topped it with 2-3 cups of Colby/Jack cheese because 1/4 of a cup of cheese seemed skimpy to me.

Quiche

Reviewed: May 13, 2006
This was the recipe I chose as a "base". I made a few modifications and additions and it was really good. I doubled the recipe and added 1 egg.(For a total of 7 eggs)I used Colby/Jack cheese, added 3 slices of bacon, broccoli, mushrooms, and added some garlic salt and paprika to taste. Everyone in my family enjoyed it (even the non-quiche lovers!) Thanks!

Easy Apple Crisp

Reviewed: May 13, 2006
I made this today to serve for Mother's Day tomorrow. My dh and I sampled it out of the oven warm and it is delicious. I took the advice of other reviewers- I doubled the amount of apples,tossed them in lemon juice, sprinkled them with nutmeg and cinnamon, and then added 1 T of vanilla (actually vanilla butter nut extract) to the apples; I reduced both the water and brown sugar to 3/4 of a cup, and added 3/4 cup of oats to the topping. I baked it for 20 minutes at 350, then covered it with foil for another 20 minutes (total cooking time was 40 minutes). Thanks!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: May 10, 2006
Good cookie.(Pretty too) I used real butter and baked them on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet for 12 minutes. I halved the recipe with perfect results- it made exactly 24. I also added semi-sweet chocolate chips to half of the batter and they are even better than the ones as written.

Microwave Lemon Curd

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2006
Delicious!I used this curd as a filling for a layered lemon cake. Fresh lemons gave it just the right amount of tartness. Thanks!

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2006
Excellent recipe! The cookies are crispy on the outside & chewy on the inside. I used butter flavored Crisco and real butter. I baked them for only 8 mins. on parchment. I left them on the baking sheet for a couple of minutes and then transferred them onto a wire cooling rack. I agree with a previous reviewer that cinnamon/sugar mixture should be increased to 3T white sugar, and 3tsp. cinnamon. I took the advice of another reviewer and placed the mixture in a sandwich baggie and dropped one ball in at a time to coat.

Mrs. Sigg's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2006
Excellent recipe. My husband pronounced them "perfect". I used unsalted butter and butter flavored Crisco, & Jiff brand creamy peanut butter. I baked 1/2 of the cookies on a parchment lined baking sheet for 8 minutes. They were crispy on the edges and soft in the middle. The batch I baked in this manner for 9 minutes burned. :( The other 1/2 of the batch were baked on a baking stone and took about 8 1/2 to 9 minutes to bake and were softer without the crispy edges. Thank Beth! This will be my new pb cookie recipe.

Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2005
This recipe tastes very good. I followed the recipe and mine came out crumbly. I am by no means an expert at fudge, so it may well have been "user error". It certainly is worth trying again( maybe with the modifications suggested). Thanks!

French Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2005
This was very close to what I was looking for. My friend is a professional baker and award winning designer. She has a "top secret" French Butter Cream frosting she uses and I have been trying to find something close. I think this is as close as I am going to get! I used regular butter (I did not have unsalted on hand) and butter flavored Crisco. There was enough to frost a 2 layer 8" round. It was smooth and creamy. It was not stiff enough to decorate with, unless whatever was not in the bag was put in the fridge. It was way too soft for flowers. I combined it with a regular shortening based buttercream for decorating. (I chose a basketweave on the sides and roses on top.) Thanks so much for a great recipe! P.S. It is wonderful on carrot cake. :)
