Classic Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2003
Delicious! I made these this morning as my toddler 'helped'. They were that quick and easy. I followed the recipe this first time exactly, but plan to start tweaking it a bit - maybe some grated carrots, maybe some oatbran, dried cranberries instead of raisins. Thank you for this fantastic recipe! update 12-8-07: I felt compelled to come back to my review because I STILL consider this my best muffin recie, making it all the time. Some notes: I use powdered buttermilk, and use a mix of wheat and oat bran. Just now now I used two ripe bananas and toasted chopped walnuts and pecans, instead of raisins. I used Splenda brown sugar blend. This might be my new favorite version (=

Cranberry Orange Loaf

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2003
Wow!! One of the best recipes I've ever tried. I have made two double batches since I found and printed this the other day. It brought raves from those who received it as gifts, and we ate it up quickly here at home. A couple notes: I found that when I chopped the fresh cranberries, at least in half, they distributed better throughout the batter. When splitting the batter into mini loaf pans for gifts, they baked much faster, so you really have to watch it closely. Finally, when the recipe says butter and flour, it really means it!! I usually skimp on this step and get away with it in other recipes, but not this one. You really do need to butter AND flour. I used walnuts instead of pecans with excellent results.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2004
Absolutely phenomenal. THis chicken pot pie may have been the best thing I have EVER cooked. It took a while, as everything is from scratch, but was worth every minute. Next time I'll make a double batch so I can freeze one. Thank you so much for this recipe!

Turkey Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2004
This was really tastey. I added a fair amount of worcestershire sauce to get the traditional sheperds pie flavor. I will probably double this next time so I can freeze one.

Skillet Tamale Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2004
This was very good. My first bite seemed a bit lacking, but as the sour cream and salsa mixed in with rest, it was delicious. I used ground turkey, which can be a little bland, so next time I might pump up the spices a bit more. I also forgot to add garlic, which is a must have for me, so that should help next time too. My skillet isn't oven proof, so I did use a casserole dish. I also used two eggs for the topping as I didn't want to take the time to separate it, and it tasted just fine. Next time I'll definitely double the recipe and put one in the freezer.

Kettle Corn

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2007
I am SOOOO addicted to this stuff! I've had a couple messy flubs along the way (you really need to know which pan pops corn the best, know your stove so you've got the right setting, and be sure you shake the pan as other reviewers have said). I like mine a bit salty, so I add a bit with the sugar and corn. Thank you so much for this recipe!!!!!

Honey Nut Granola

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2007
Wow! I have made this granola 4 times since I found the recipe a few weeks ago. As soon as the family eats it up, I make more. I've changed it a bit each time, after reading all the reviews, and I think I've finally settled on my favorite: I use oats, sliced almonds and sunflower seeds (but no other nuts), whole flax seed, wheat germ (about 1/2 cup each)for added nutrition, plus coconut for sweetness. I up the oil and honey just a bit, plus add a bit of real maple syrup for flavor. I add a combo of regular and golden raisins, but only at the very end (otherwise they burn-yuck!). I bake it on parchment, on a lower temp (about 225) and stir often, every 7-10 minutes. I pulled it off to another pan to cool - trust me, this is a must! And then finally, since we like ours clumpy, as it was cooling, I pulled off bits and squeezed hunks together. I then mixed about half the still warm granola with about 1/3 cup powdered milk. It gave amazing flavor and texture to the finished product. This recipe is PHENOMENALLY good - and versatile and cheap. Wow, what's not to love?

Frosted Pumpkin Doughnuts

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
This was my first attempt at homemade donuts. These were quite tastey, but they were hard to knead/roll without adding lots of extra flour. To me they didn't taste pumpkin-y at all. And we just rolled them in cinnamon sugar rather than doing an icing. I might try to add more pumpkin, but I can't imagine using more flour that the 4 1/2 cups already called for to keep the dough from being more gooey.

Yia Yia's Tzatziki Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2008
Very good. I'm happy to have a recipe for tzatziki sauce. This was my first time making it, and it was easy. I used nonfat plain yogurt, lowfat sour cream - and I neglected to drain them first since I forgot to read the reviews first. It wasn't too runny though, so it wasn't a big deal. I did add a bit of grated onion, and I'm not sure I'd do that again. I halved it, and it still made a ton. I used it for falafel and pitas - and will definitely make it again.

Apple Strudel Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2008
These were good - but only fine, not great or amazing as some other reviewers said. I read the reviews first, and made the adjustment of grating some of my apple first. I also added cinnamon and nutmeg for flavor.But mine were pretty dry - and a sticky mess on the pan afterwards from the topping. So in the end for the amount of time and effort, I didn't think they were that great. I'm so surious about why there are different opinions - it makes me wonder if the apple choice makes a big difference. I used Cameo since that was what I had. I also would maybe add yogurt or applesauce to get a moister muffin if I were to make these again.

Best Breakfast Cookie

Reviewed: May 9, 2008
really yummy. I used apple sauce instead of prune puree and 1 cup of splenda brown sugar blend. I used raisins and craisins and left out the nuts. I used half whole wheat pastry flour and added ground flaxseed. great recipe - and fun to have for playing around with.

London Broil II

Reviewed: May 13, 2008
MMMMM! Amazing marinade. I followed the recommendations of others and added lemon juice, fish sauce, and garlic, and the taste was great. The meat was still on the tough side - despite piercing it all over, and marinating all day. I think London Broil is just a tough cut. I'll try this on other meats and chicken. Yum

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: May 14, 2008
This was really good. surprisingly good! I didn't have any white wine, so I used vermouth. And I have to agree with other reviewers who said the wine/vermouth is key to the flavor. I would definitely not leave it out. I doubled the sauce as other reviews suggested, and found that was too much. This is our new pork chop recipe. Definitely worth the time. Thanks! update 7/3/11- I made this tonight, but sauteed onions and mushrooms in the pork oil before adding soup, milk, and chardonnay. Very good. I didn't combine the sauce and the pork in the oven since I had kids who didn't want the sauce - and I think it's better combined. Just be sure not to overcook the pork. Delicious with buttered egg noodles.

Old Fashioned Onion Rings

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
Wow. These are amazing. I'm a huge onion ring fan, and now when I get a hankering I will just make these. Yes, they are a lot of work, messy and time consuming - but worth it. I keep trying to refine the process (I've made them twice now) and have tried the ziploc bag and container w/ lid method - both are messy. Anyway, delicious - especially with the bloomin' onion dipping sauce from this site. I used panko which are delicious - I've also used seasoned Italian breadcrumbs. The panko are expensive, but delicious. Thanks for the recipe!!!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2008
Wow - truly delicious. I made this for the first time this morning, and made a very few modifications to try and make it a bit more healthy. I used just over 2 cups of white sugar (I couldn't bring myself to use a full 3 cups) and it was just fine. I added a few tablespoons of flaxmeal (always do in baked goods to sneak in some health benefits) and used about 1/2 to 3/4 cup whole wheat flour. I added toasted chopped walnuts and raisins to part of the recipe. In total I ended up with 1 5x9 loaf, 1 3x5 loaf, and 12 mini muffins. My kids nearly wiped out all the muffins immediately - opting for them over the cookies (no joke!). I had my loaves get a bit browner than I like before the toothpick came out clean - even with foil on top - so watch them carefully. This is an AMAZING recipe - and will be made over and over again in my kitchen I'm sure.

Buckeye Balls II

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
I thought these were good - but not as great as I had hoped or expected. For the time and effort and mess, I only thought they were good.

Cheesy Ham and Hash Brown Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
This was tasty. My husband said it really stuck to his ribs.I think next time I'll use less sour cream, as I found the called for amount a bit much for my taste. I used diced ham plus a little crumbled bacon (4 slices) - but I think next time I'll use browned crumbled sausage for a better taste (again, just personal taste). I'll also add some sauteed peppers and onions. I'm also trying to think about how to make this a less costly recipe: it's not very budget friendly right now. The soups are expensive (there wasn't a store brand available), and the other ingredients are also all pretty costly. In all, yummy and I'm glad to have the recipe!

Lemon Icebox Pie III

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2009
Wow! Yum. The reviews were true - this was easy and delicious. We had it for Easter dessert, and I expected it to be the 'adult' choice, with cupcakes for the kids. At least some of the kids actually preferred the pie (and the cupcakes had sprinkles!) I used half regular cream cheese and half neufchatel (lower fat) and found the taste to be wonderful. A very refreshing, not too-sweet, not too-tart dessert for anytime. Easy, quick, delicious - what's not to love?!
