Chewy Date Nut Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2012
For taste I am giving this a 5 star rating. But I did have disappointing results with the edges raising and browning up, way before the middle was done. Will try again to see if get different results. I didn't have full 2 cups of dates so I used craisins as a fill in but I don't think that has anything to do with edges getting tooooooo brown before middle was done and my oven temps are right on.

Homemade Dishwasher Soap

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2012
If you have well water I don't suggest this. Borax has phosphorus in it and when it comes in contact with cool water, immediatly clumps and blocks sewer pipes.

Eclair Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2012
WOW, so easy and so delicious. I took several suggestions from reviewers. I did use french vanilla pudding. Did put frosting in microwave for 30 seconds and gave it a good stir to pour on top. And made it the night before to sit overnight to let graham crackers get moist. This was very popular and church members couldn't stop coming back for more. Should have made 2!

Chinky's Puto Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2012
A nice Filipino Sweet Bread. I read up on it online before making and learned that cheese is served on top and with HB eggs on side sometimes. Yes more cooking time was needed/ use your cake testers. Yes it was hard to get out of pan. And there was some good steaming going on. Will try again but maybe grease/nonstick spray the loaf or muffin pans first. In the end a nice ethnic food, and the cheese on top was not bad with a sweet bread.

Out of this World Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2012
A good pie. I didn't think it was too sweet at all. I didn't have all 6 bananas and it was fine. It was popular among alot of fellowship coffee hour desserts this AM and I heard good comments. I would think about adding some strawberries next time. Note: Needs at least 4 hrs to chill. So maybe an overnight thing.

French Toast I

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
Basic french toast. Wether your beginning to cook or an expert you will be loved for this. Happy to see a basic recipe on AR. I did a plain picture so a beginner can see what a done piece looks like. The secret to FT is cook on medium heat--dont rush it. It needs to cook all the way through.

Slow Cooker Macaroni and Cheese with Broccoli

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2012
No fuss, that's the way I like it. Really minimum prep work. Place ingredients in crock pot, check on occasionally and it will get ready for you. I used fresh broccoli microwaved al-dente. My crock pot runs hot so at 2 hr 30 min the pasta was done. Let run on warm another 15 minutes. It will be a regular potluck dish I bring to church. Everyone loves macaroni and cheese!

Creamy Asparagus and Peas Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2012
Basic side dish that didn't offer much of a blended taste of ingrediants. I used turkey bacon which at times I think helps some dishes in its own way but it didn't here. The parmesan gave it the most flavor, as I always add a tad more. I used frozen peas and did not blanch with the asparagus. I preferred doing each veggie on its own. Wont make again.

Who knew making such a dish could be so easy. And appreciated. Eggplant has a wonderful flavor. I too used my own sauce.

White Texas Sheet Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2012
Everyone who tried these and the cake I made too said they loved this. The almond extract kept bringing people back for seconds. Moist cake. I double the recipe to make a quarter sheet pan and there were no problems.

Bean Soup With Kale

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2012
Mild soup with good flavor. Everything blended well and there wasn't one flavor that took over. I made my own broth and only added one can of cannellini. I thought there was plenty of beans. I added chicken pieces to take place of other can of beans for protein.

Spring Cleaning Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2012
I just happen to have a little of this and a little of that to clean out my pantry and make these. They were a little dry. And done at the 10 min. mark. Probably wont make again. Coming back to edit; they were not too bad after being frozen for 2 wks.

Romantic Lemon Cheesecake Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2012
I really enjoyed these. I thought they were light and tasted delectable. I tried as recipe calls and adding some zest as reviewer suggested. Adding zest changed the flavor only somewhat. Silver dollar size from googling is 1.75" or approx. a good teaspoon. I had griddle at 325 degrees and thought it was appropriate. I am going to make lots of these for Easter Sunrise Service Potluck Breakfast.

Cottage Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2012
I'm only reviewing this from the boys in this household because I do not enjoy meatloaf. They said it had good flavor and was moist. I did try one bit and agreed on the moistness. I once got advice from an old church member that said to never use lean ground beef for meatloaf so I do stick with a lower ratio ground beef.
