Mini Pumpkin Butterscotch Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
These are delicious. My 9 yo pronounced them "irresistible". I baked 2 pans of mini muffins and 1 small pan of regular sized.(It made 6- baked for 18 min.)The combination does sound odd, but it is really good.

Soft Pretzels I

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
These are really yummy! After having the pretzels at the mall for a snack yesterday, I decided to try to make them at home. The recipe I used was very similar to this one. I added a bit more water to the dough, used 4t of baking soda in the water bath and baked them for 12 min at 400 degrees. I dipped some of them in melted butter and sprinkled them with coarse salt. The others were dipped in the butter and then in cinnamon and sugar. I made 12 med sized pretzels out of the batch.

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.

Quick Chicken Divan

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2004
This is one of my all-time favorites. I have never put lemon juice in it, but it is great without it. I use whatever "Cream Of" soup I have on hand.(And thin it with a little milk) My favorite cheese to use is the marbled cheddar/jack. I have used fresh and frozen broccoli with good results. I always steam or boil the broccoli before adding to the chicken. Also I have used left over roasted chicken and also boiled or browned the chicken in a pan before assembling. The other thing I often add is a carton of fresh mushrooms that I saute in a little butter. This dish can be modified in so many ways. I have never had a bad batch. I have given this recipe out numerous times.

Three Bean Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2007
Yummy! I added a can of chick peas and reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup. It was a hit at a 4th of July BBQ.

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!

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!

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!

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!

So simple to make... but so delicious. I pureed it and the texture was velvety smooth. Even my children (7 and 9 yrs old) liked it. 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!

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!

London Broil II

Reviewed: May 31, 2005
This was absolutely delicious. I bought 2 London Broil steaks and had no clue what to do with them, so I searched here, my favorite site! I left out the oregano, and added seasoned pepper. (Just a few shakes) I let it marinate for several hours before throwing it on the BBQ. We shared with our friends and there was not a single bite left. Thanks!
