Spiced Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
Love Love Love it. I made this three times this summer and that is unusual for me. My daughter started making it too. Thanks LuvMyFamily. I couldn't believe I forgot to rate this earlier this summer. I had some extra cooked carrots and threw them in with the soup too. I swear I can see better every time I eat this soup!

Hot Fudge Pudding Cake III

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2007
This was nothing like the one my mom made growing up. I thought it was OK, but my family wouldn't eat it and I ended up throwing part of it away. I'll keep looking for one like Moms. Obviously a lot of people liked it, so if you have no expectations of the dish, you may enjoy it. Thanks for sharing.

Seafood Newburg

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2007
I added some garlic, it just doesn't seem complete with out garlic-1 clove cooked with the flour and butter. Also added a little half and half and topped with fresh grated Parmesan Reggiano. I liked this pretty well and would make this again.

Easy Seafood Fettucini

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
Tastes fantastic once you add the little extras suggested by previous posts. I can hardly stop eating it. I grated in some Parmesian Reggiano rather than regular Parm because I had just had to buy it and hadn't had anything to try it in yet, fantastic stuff. Substituted 1/2 c. 1/2 & 1/2 for part of the milk also. This was just delicious.

Cucumber and Dill Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2007
If you are lucky enough to live where there is Dorothy Lynch Salad dressing, I suggest doing this instead of the published dressing mix. Way easy and delicious, also attractive red tint to the salad.

Fruit Dip II

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2007
I was trying to make a fruit dip (which is not something I've done) for a shower and this had the best reviews, but I thought it sounded way to boring as some of the reviews indicated so.. I used 1-(8) ounce tub of sour cream, 8 ounces of cream cheese, 2 7 ounce jars of marshmellow creme, and about 1/4 of a cup of frozen strawberries and sauce to pink it up a little. HUGE HIT! This made A LOT, and could easily be cut in half for a smaller crowd.

Citrus Grove Punch

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2007
My boys loved this and begged me to make more. I used frozen limeaid rather than all the fresh limes which I'm sure would have been even better, but time was a factor. Used Florida's Natural orange juice, really tastes the most like fresh squeezed I think.

Holiday Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2007
Tastes GREAT! Thanks for the recipe. I used 3 large boneless skinless chicken breasts and cooked them in a skillet with a little seasoning as others had suggested. This amount of meat gave me exactly 4 cups. I thought I would need to do all the roasting of the pecans and things by other reviews, but decided to keep it simple and it didn't need all that. I did leave out the green pepper. I like it, but no one else does so, out it goes. Amount of dressing is exactly right, I guess I used light Miracle whip though.

Red Slush Punch

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2007
Very Yummy, I'm a little scared to serve this at a formal party due to the red stain factor. I wonder how it would taste with orange jello? I would love to add the rum as suggested and will probably do that when I make this for a more informal party in my home. If I serve it and it goes over, I'll add some more notes... The timing was a little difficult, but this made plenty of punch for 30 people plus some for an "after" party with the rum added later to do invitations, no one spilled all over even on the invitations lol. I took the frozen zip-lok bags of punch out early-about 8 AM, then put them in a large igloo beverage cooler to transport with the Ginger ale @ 9 AM, and got a good consistency by the time lunch was served. Had to bust up the big hunks of frozen stuff, but it worked out ok. Better plan on a punch bowl. You can't pour this well or use a spiggout because it filter out all the slushy ice which is key in the overall enjoyment of the beverage. Overall, a little complicated, but good pay-off factor.

Cheesy Corn Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2007
This was very good cornbread, but it was now where near done after 25 minutes. Maybe if they are shaped like the picture that is all it takes. I went 10 extra minutes and the middle was still soft and I had to cut a chunk from the middle that caved in. Despite that and now knowing I just have to cook it more, it was very delicious and some one told me it was the best cornbread they ever had. I have since realized this isn't because of this recipe it is because of my Accu-bake oven which I hate! Don't buy one. They cook totally different.

Salmon Fillets with Creamy Dill

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2007
My Husband ACTUALLY ATE SALMON! Very excellent, Only 4 stars becasue why put all that fatty mayo on your healthy fish? I substituted most of the mayo for plain unsweetened yogurt. TERRIFIC. This sauce was so good I will probably use it for any time I want sauce for fish. I just used the dried herbs because that was all I had, no problems, fresh would be even bettr I'm sure. I have to admit I also put a tiny bit of brown sugar in the sauce-maybe a Tablespoon. I squeezed lemon on my fish and sprinkled it with salt and pepper before spreading on the sauce too. Really Loved it!

Peanut Butter Cake II

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2007
Very good. My husband had been asking for peanut butter cake for several year and I finally came here to find one. I used shavings of Hershey's Peanut butter filled choclate bars on the top and surrounded it with Peanut Butter M & M's and it was a hit. I also used 4 oz of cream cheese with the frosting just because I love cream cheese in my frosting. Thanks for the terrific recipe. Great with some ice cream. They put my picture on the recipe. Too Fun!

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2007
These are AWESOME! HUGE ROLLS! I wasn't sure if I was supposed to start on the long side or short side rolling these up, the cinnamon rolls I usually make I roll from the long side, but since these were only supposed to be cut in 12 rolls I decided to roll them from the short side so I had more layers in the rolls. (If you like smaller rolls roll from the long side and and cut twice as many.) This was the ticket. They looked beautiful-don't roll too tight though or they will burst out in the center like cones. (I doubled the recipe and made 4 batches of 6 rolls for a bake sale, but we had to eat one batch-too good!). I roll these out on a silicone baking mat 15.5"x23.5". It is the perfect size to stretch this dough thin enough to make great rolls and rolling them up is a breeze. Roll on the smooth side, put the rough side down so it doesn't slide around-again, roll loosly. Be ready to roll up your sleeves though, this is not easy to roll this thin especially if you are a novice at baking-it is definately worth the effort! YUMMY! By the way, I have never used a bread machine for this, but there are plenty of good reviews here to explain that process if you don't know how.

Amish Friendship Bread Starter

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2007
I was given this recently and wishing I had the recipe for the starter-thanks. I have passed it on to my Mom and neighbors and they all enjoyed it very much. I was kind of dreading it hanging around my kitchen, but I have acutually enjoyed the whole experience very much.

Pecan Sandies

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2007
MELTS IN YOUR MOUTH-YUMM! I have two words for all you who are having so much trouble getting your cookies out of the pan. PARCHMENT PAPER buy it, use it, you will have no more problems and you will never go back. Since some people said this didn't have enough flavor, I compared it with other recipes. Due to this I used 2 tsp of vanilla, 1.5 tsp of salt, and of course, who would use margarine when you could use butter. Beat the heck out of the sugars and butter and oil and eggs so it is almost like cake batter. The dough is very soft so a quick chill in the fridge makes it easy to work with. Very well liked, have had someone ask for the recipe where ever I take them. Thanks Mary Ann-Permanantly in my cookie recipe box.

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2004
If you haven't tried scones before they are more like a sweet biscuit than a cookie. If you like it more "cookyish". Roll a little thinner, cut a little smaller and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar before baking. These were too large for me. I can make about twice as many from the same recipe.

Fish in Foil

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2003
We really enjoyed all the extra flavor of the peppers. Will fix this regularly as we are trying to eat fish more often. I rarely have trout, but a nice way to perk up the flavor for any fish. If you want a good sauce try the one from Salmon Fillets with Creamy Dill, except keep it healthy by using plain yogurt intead of all that mayo. Why would anyone go to the trouble to make something this healthy, then drown it in mayo?
