Simple Swiss Chard

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2008
Very tasty, be sure to use a good quality balsamic. I used the stems of the swiss chard, why waste them. I would make this again.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
This is a very nice icing. I did have to double the recipe to have enough, for a half recipe of the Best Rolled Sugar Cookies from this site. I did add more milk and a little more corn syrup to get the right consistancy. These have a very nice gloss. I would use this recipe again.

Aunt Dorothy's Marinated Carrot Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009
This is a great colorful salad for potlucks, and it's nice because it can be made ahead of time and stays nice and crispy. I made one change due to personal taste, and I just wanted to see how it would be. I omitted the onion and added chopped fennel bulb. It was very good.

Lemon Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: May 8, 2010
I would definitely make this again. I just love piccata, and this sauce has just the right amount of lemon and capers. I however, did not put the lemon slices in the sauce, as I did not have enough for the juice, but it was still delicious. Next time I will make sure I have 2 lemons.

Rhubarb Pudding Cake

Reviewed: May 8, 2009
We really loved this recipe. Just the right amount of sweetness and tartness. I did, however use 4 cups of rhubarb. I think it needed that much. I might try it with some strawberries next time. Mmmmm.....strawberry/rhubarb. Great recipe.

Flax and Sunflower Seed Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2008
This is an excellent bread. I have made it several times and will continue to do so. Flaxseeds and sunflower seeds are a wonderful combination. The texture is great as well as the fantastic flavor. I might try to grind the flaxseeds in the future, because I have heard that they are more benificial that way. Yummy bread!!!!

Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
This soup is excellent. I did use onion instead of leek, only because I didn't have leek. Also I added about 3/4 cup chopped celeriac (celery root) just because I needed to use it up. I will definately make this soup again, without my changes. I know that it will still be great.

Czechoslovakian Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2008
I made these because my husband's ancestors are Bohemian/Czech. These cookie bars are really better than I thought they would be. I didn't have strawberry jam, so I used blackberry jam. Very good!!!! ....................................... I am updating this review. I just made these with Solo apricot filling and they were awesome. I want to try with the Solo nut fillings next. I also forgot the vanilla and they were still good. Great recipe.

Spicy Maple Baked Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2008
We thought these beans were very tasty. I used bacon instead of ham. I forgot to put in the yellow mustard. They were still excellent. The maple syrup makes them very yummy.

Neapolitan Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2008
I have made these cookies for probably about 20 years now. I got the exact recipe from our newspaper that many years ago. They always turn out great. The only thing I changed, was that I used double the amount of almond extract. Very good cookies and easy to make.

Carrot and Fennel

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2008
Wonderful recipe, my husband and I both loved it. Has a natural sweetness due to the cooked carrots and fennel bulb. I made this recipe exactly as written.

Corn and Zucchini Melody

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2008
Fantastic recipe, however, I did make a change. I didn't have Monterey Jack cheese, so I used sharp cheddar. I also used more than a pinch of freshly ground black pepper. This is a very yummy!!!!

Chewy Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2008
These cookies are sooooo good and easy to make. I followed the recipe exactly. I wonder how they would be with macadamia nuts and bittersweet chocolate chips. Hmmmmmm......

Macadamia Nut Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2008
This is a very delicious cookie. I used bittersweet chips and omitted the vanilla chips, just personal preference. This is very similar to the original Toll House with the exception of a couple ingredients. The macadamia nuts make these very yummy.

Triple Berry Crisp

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2008
This is a wonderful receipe. I made it with only blueberries and raspberries. I also put in a scant teaspoon of tapioca, so it would not be too runny, however I put a little to much. Will use less next time. I also used only 2 1/4 cup butter. The full amount would have been just fine. I also used only 1/2 of the white sugar in the berries, only because I do not like it too sweet. Everyone in my family thought it was an excellent dessert.

Cream Cheese Kolacky

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2008
Love these...have made them several times. My entire family loves them. The dough is a little difficult to handle, and must be done fairly quickly, but so worth it. Solo fillings are the best to use, and can be bought directly from their website. I bought 12 cans of different flavors, and it was less expensive than in the store. Also there are 13 different fruit and nut varieties. As others, said Solo does not get runny and the flavors are fantastic.

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: May 3, 2008
Reading reviews before I made these, I decided to also increase the flour and peanut butter by 1/2 cup each and also added 1 teaspoon vanilla. With these changes I am giving this a 5 star rating. Many were saying that they spread too much using the original recipe, so I didn't want to take a chance. These are a very good tasting peanut butter cookie.

Cranberry Orange Loaf

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
This bread is very nice. Fantastic flavor and texture. I has some leftover topping from (To Die For Blueberry Muffins) from this site, so I sprinkled it on top before I baked the bread, very good. I think I will try the orange glaze that some of the other reviewers have been using next time I make this.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2008
These blueberry muffins were excellent. I used frozen blueberries, that I picked last summer. I increased the amount of berries to 1 1/2 cups. There was enough topping for 2 or 3 batches of these. I was able to get 12 muffins, as I used a regular sized Pampered Chef muffin stone to bake them in.
