Melissa's Turkey Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
Yum yum yum. This recipe was super easy. I substituted green peppers for the celery and used tomato sauce and ketchup instead of the soup. I also used condensed milk instead of regular milk which was fine.

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
What a great, easy recipe. I will definitely make this again. I also added a bit of vegetable broth for added flavor.

Mary Anne's Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
I found that this cake came out too soft and oily for my taste. In hindsight I should have added a bit more flour and reduced the amount of oil even more than I did. I will say that the flavors in the cake were nice. I will make it again but will tweak it next time.

Summer Soup of Butternut and Corn

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2008
I made this soup without the corn and it still came out well. I did substitute cinnamon for nutmeg. also added one granny smith apple and pureed that along with the squash. Yum.

Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
I'm not a berry pie person but I must admit that this pie is tasty. My cousin, the pie-lover, really enjoyed it.

Easy Whipped Cream

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2006
The first time I made this it came out great. The second time I could not get it to thicken. I guess I did something wrong...

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2006
These cookies came out okay which says more about me and less about the recipe itself. For starters I used less butter than the recipe called for (only had 1/2 cup) so the cookies had a "floury" taste. Since I love ginger (I used freshly grated ginger instead of powdered ginger) I will try these again.

Spicy Sweet Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2006
This soup came out very good. I loved the flavors and the smooth texture. It's hearty so can be used as a side dish as well as a main meal.I used vanilla yogurt on top for a great cool taste. Will surely make again.

Red Lentil Curry

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2006
This recipe turned out very good and spicy. I was not sure if I had rinsed the lentils well before cooking so I just rinsed them with cold water afterwards. They didn't come out mushy at all. I didn't use tumeric but it came out great. I also followed another review's advice and substituted lemon juice for the sugar. Great with some brown rice and raita!

Golden Lemon Pound Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2006
I altered this recipe a little. I used brown sugar and wheat flour in addition to the white stuff. Although I used more lemon than the recipe called for it still wasn't "lemony" enough for me. I was also able to taste too much of the flour. This was probably due to my baking rather than the recipe. Overall, it's a nice cake.

Sunburst Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2006
These bars were just okay.The crust came out too hard and the filling was too soft. Also, the edges were tough and chewy so I had to cut them off. These bars aren't worth the trouble, I will not be making them again!

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2006
This cornbread came out very well. I followed the instructions to the tee. It was a bit too sweet for my taste though. Next time I'll cut the amount of sugar. Also I used whole corn kernels and jack cheese. Yum!

Streusel Apple Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2005
This pie was excellent. I added chopped cranberries to the streusal topping for an added effect. I also followed others and added lemon juice and flour to the filling.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies I

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2005
These cookies were so easy to make and they came out great. Follow the baking time if you want cookies on the softer side. I left mine in longer and they were pretty crispy. Still good though!

Grilled Salmon with Ginger-Orange Glaze

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2004
Excellent. I got rave reviews for this one. The longer you let the fish marinate, the better it comes out. Oh, I baked the fish instead of grilling at it came out great nevertheless.

Fresh Coconut Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2004
I only made the frosting from this recipe and it did not come out well. Although I followed the instructions exactly I found that it came out syrupy sweet and too thin.

Pineapple Filling

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2004
This filling came out very good. A bit on the sweet side though. I used canned pineapple and found it worked out fine.
