Caramelized French Toast

Reviewed: May 28, 2004
We had this for dinner tonight, along with scrambled eggs and bacon. We loved it. My husband proclaimed it "excellent". I cut 4 thick slices of a homemade loaf of white bread, and followed the recipe for making the french toast. I halved the recipe for the caramel sauce. To make the sauce, I added about 1T of butter into the pan, let it melt down, then added 1/2c of brown sugar, and then 1/4c HOT water. After it had bubbled and thickened a bit, I added a little milk. It did not harden (it did not cook long enough to get to that stage) and it had the consistency of syrup. We poured some of the extra sauce over the french toast. Delicious! Thanks Anne!

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.

Salmon with Dill

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2005
Delicious! Definitely a restaurant quality meal. I did substitute mayo for the butter. (A tip from another salmon recipe) I also marinaded the salmon in lemon juice for 20 minutes beforehand to cut the strong "fishy" taste. (A tip I learned about today... we found it worked!) I am going to use this recipe again next week. Thanks!

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2007
For something so simple to prepare, these are wonderful. I used fresh peas, green onion, and dried thyme. Thanks so much!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2004
This was very tasty. Yes, it does improve with age... My kids and I enjoyed it for breakfast and snack for several days. I might add more spices next time just to give it a little more flavor, but it is good just as it is written. Thanks!

Basic Cheesecake

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2004
Thank you for a great recipe. I baked it in a heart shaped springform pan, used a water bath and left it in the oven for several hours after baking, but it still had a large crack. I think next time I will turn the heat down to 325 and see if that makes a difference. I don't mind a crack or two, but if someone is looking for a "perfect presentation", it might be better to try another recipe. I made this last night as a surprise for my husband. Cheesecake is his favorite dessert. He prefers a dense, heavy cheesecake and pronounced this one "perfect". I opted to make a plain graham cracker crust. (the crust recipe did not sound like something my hubby would care for.)

Scalloped Potatoes I

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2004
This is very close to my mom's recipe except hers does not call for the shredded cheese(so if you don't have it on hand it is still really good w/o it) and her recipe does have a can of milk in it. We also dot the top with butter and sprinkle a little paprika on top for color and a bit of flavor. This is one of my all-time favorite comfort foods!

Easy Rum Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2004
This is fabulous! I used light rum and a French Vanilla cake mix. (What I had on hand)I also mixed 1/2 of the nuts into the batter. The only problem I had was in getting it out of the bundt pan- It split and I ended up having to leave it in the pan and put the glaze over the bottom of it. (I let it cool completely, overnight...)My ds and I are enjoying a piece together I will definitely save this recipe! Thanks!

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!

Chicken Parmigiana

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2004
This is definitely restaurant quality. I did not have any dry bread crumbs in the pantry, so I made some by toasting 5 pieces in the oven as it preheated for the chicken,then crumbled the toasty bread and added garlic salt, parsley, and some parmesan cheese. I used Ragu sauce and a bag of "Italian" mix pre-shredded cheese. I served it over angel hair with creamy roasted vegetable soup, and cheesecake mousse with fresh strawberries for dessert. I am the granddaughter of an Italian chef (from Italy) and this is just as good as his recipe... Thanks Candy! What a lovely entree.

Chicken Fried Steak I

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2004
This is really good. I did the "double dipping" with the cutlets for about 1/2 the time, and the breading fell off. Then I decided to just dip the rest of the meat in the egg/buttermilk mixture first and then the flour and call it good... It worked much better. This was the first time that I used shortening to fry the steak and I was pleased with the results. (I have always made Chicken Fried Steak in oil) After reading some of the reviews, I was leery of heating the full 2 cups of shortening, so I started out with only 1... but I ended up adding the second cup when the steak absorbed the majority of it. I added garlic salt, seasoning salt, & fines herbes to the flour. I served it with mashed potatoes, green beans and crescent rolls. I was thrilled with the results. Thanks!

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!

Raisin Bran Chewies Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2008
These are very good. I made a 1/2 batch and used 1/2 butter and 1/2 shortening. A great way to use up Raisin Bran cereal. (I am the only one in my family that likes it and a whole box is hard for me to finish without getting tired of it...) Thanks!

Ramen Coleslaw

Reviewed: May 30, 2004
I used a bag of preshredded coleslaw mix (with red cabbage and carrots). This is similar to a salad my aunt makes but her recipe includes grilled chicken strips. I liked that I usually have everything in this recipe on hand. It was easy to put together. My family and our guests enjoyed this very much. Thanks!

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2004
These are absolutely the BEST! Thank you, thank you. I hosted a high tea this afternoon for my friend's birthday and these were a big hit. My husband has asked me to make more. (He loved them.) I served them with strawberry jam, pumpkin butter and the "Easy Devonshire Cream" from this site. I divided the dough into 2 parts, flattened them into circles, and cut them into wedges. Each part yielded 8 scones. They were the perfect size and shape. Thanks Rob!

Pumpkin Pie Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2005
This is wonderful. I have made it twice. (Once just as the recipe states and the other I improvised a bit.) I used fresh pumpkin the 2nd time and it was a hit. I had some left over spiced walnuts that I used on the top. I took some over to a friend's home and her kids loved it. Thanks Christine!

Pumpkin Butter I

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2005
I made this over the Christmas holiday season and gave some as gifts. I did double the recipe and tweaked the spices to suit my taste. (I used pumpkin pie spice and only a little bit of ginger.) I will definitely make it again. I canned it and gave the jars away to friends. I was told last night by one couple that received one,that the jar was licked clean. That is a sign of a good recipe as far as I am concerned! We put this pumpkin butter on Grandma Johnson's scones. It was delicious. I added this to my personal recipe book tonight.(I loved it enough to hand write it on a recipe card!) Thanks Eleanor!

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.

EAGLE BRAND® Mini Cheesecakes

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2005
Wow! These are wonderful. I ended up adding too much sugar to the graham cracker crumbs, and added more melted butter. ( I agree with other reviewers- I think it needs more) I made 12 regular and 12 chocolate (melted semi-sweet chocolate chips) and had enough crumbs and batter to make a small cheesecake in a pie tin. I found that they needed to be baked for about 25 minutes and I left most of them in the oven to cool overnight. (A tip from another cheescake recipe) I sampled one of the regular ones after putting it in the freezer to cool. This recipe is a keeper.

Grilled Lemon Herb Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2005
I marinated 4 large chops (medium thick) using the written amount of ingredients. I did add a bit of fresh garlic pepper from the grinder. In the future, I will add more of everything and cut the salt and black pepper a little bit. This is a wonderful recipe for pork chops. We grilled them last night (had friends over) and then reheated them for another set of friends this afternoon. They were still tender and very tasty. Our friends requested the recipe. Thanks!
