Pretzel Crust

Reviewed: May 18, 2009
This is a fabulous substitution for a graham cracker crust. I have recently started using honey wheat pretzels because they are lower in sodium. Very nice salty sweet taste without the salt overpowering like regular pretezels can do sometimes.

Round Steak and Gravy II

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
This was an excellent 'stick to your ribs' kind of meal. I used a packet of Golden Onion dry mix instead of the canned onion soup & it worked fine. Just upped the water to two cans. I mixed 2 TBS of cornstarch with some cold water until smooth & stirred it into the crock pot (I cooked it on low all day) during the last hour or so & it made a perfect gravy - very flavorful. Meat was fork tender after a day in the crock pot & everyone, even the picky 5 y/o, liked it. Thanks!

Crazy Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2007
Wonderfully moist & flavorful - you'd never know this was egg free! I usually halve the recipe & bake in an 8" pan for about 30-35 minutes (test for doneness). Great when you want cake but not a huge panful. Also makes great cupcakes (which freeze easily!) I love how easy it is to change the flavors! Our favorite is orange - just omit the cocoa & vinegar & use orange juice in place of the water (same amount as called for in recipe).

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2006
This was very simple to make & was a perfect side to smoked pork chops! I gave this 4 instead of 5 simply because, like quite a few other reviewers, I made some changes to the written recipe. I, too, roasted the squash in the oven. IMO this not only adds flavor but adds to the ease in preparation. I'm doing WW so I reduced some of the fat & calories by using fat free cream cheese and only half of the called for amount. I also used fat free margerine. I thought the soup was very rich & creamy. I believe using the full amount of cream cheese in the recipe may have overwhelmed the mellow flavor of the squash. With these simple changes, this recipe came in at only 3 points per serving according to the WW recipe builder. Def. a keeper for my winter soup recipe box!

Banana Muffins I

Reviewed: May 26, 2005
Thumbs up for this super easy recipe. I found these to be very moist & light. The banana flavor is mellow not bland...makes me think of a banana pancake. Going by the reviews & personal preferece, I made a few minor changes: Instead of 1 cup ap flour I used 1/2 cup all purpose & 1/2 cup whole wheat. I also changed the 1/4 cup sugar to a mix of sugar/Splenda. I used 3 ripe bananas (what I had on hand) instead of measuring out the one cup & added a dash of cinnamon & Splenda to the top of each muffin before baking. 20 minutes worked perfect in my oven. Yum! Don't let the scant 1 cup of flour fool you - you will get 12 regular sized muffins or 6-8 generously large muffins out of this small amount of batter. I didn't taste any of the bitterness or have any problems with dryness. Perhaps the extra bit of banana made a difference? I don't know for certain but when I made my second batch I stuck with my changes & they came out great, too.

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2005
I didn't measure out the liquid smoke or sea salt (regular worked fine - couldn't find the hawaiian). Instead I poured a light covering of smoke & patted on a layer of salt after placing the roast in the crock. (less messy this way & you don't lose any of the liquid smoke) At about the 12 hour mark I turned it over & shredded it a little with a big fork. I poured out some of the excess liquid (not all - just 1/3 or so), added another coating of smoke & salt & let it go on low for another 10-12 hours. I ended up using about 2oz of liquid smoke & at least double the amount of salt in the recipe. This was a little salty but mostly had a wonderful smokey taste. Melted into juicy shreds that were perfect when served on the slightly sweet King's Hawaiian rolls. I made this for a luau themed party (made 2, 6lbs roasts for 35 people) & had no leftovers plus many requests for the recipe! I've made this at least 3 times since & found it also freezes & reheats well.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2002
Hearty, basic, & easy! Leftovers reheated later in the week tasted great, too. I made very minor changes: I used 2 cans of beef broth, 2 stalks of celery, 1 Tbsp of Worchester, & 2 cloves of garlic. S&P I added to taste. I had some barley in the cabinet & I threw it in towards the end...it thickened it up to a nice "stew" consistancy. Great served with warm bread/rolls.

Easy Key Lime Pie I

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2002
Since this was my first attempt at a Key Lime Pie, I did not change the recipe except to add green food coloring. Like the other reviews warned, this did not fill my 9" pie crust, but I just made a quick meringue with the egg whites, cream of tartar and Sweet & Low (was out of sugar) & it turned out fine. I didn't bake it as long (about 8 minutes less) because the meringue was getting too brown, but after letting it set in the fridge overnight the consistancy was great and the flavor was wonderful! I didn't think it was to tart...the sweetness of the graham cracker crust really balanced it out. Thanks for such a great recipe.
