Butterscotch Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2010
Fantastic! No major changes. I quartered the apples instead of halving - much better serving size. I put 1-2 teaspoons of the sugar-cinammon-nutmeg mixture into each smaller dumpling. While I had a lot of the sugar mixture left over, I thought it came out perfectly. Sweet, but not too sweet. Also, I forgot them in the oven. They may have been in an extra 20-40 minutes. Well browned, but delicious. I used Winesap apples - a rather tart apple. I brought it to the neighborhood cook out and they disappeared like hot cakes! The doughy part was wonderful.

Apple Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
Here's my changes: soften, rather than melt butter and add 1 t. vanilla. Dice rather than slice apples. Add apples and 1/2 c. chocolate chips after mixing in dry ingredients. Spread mixture into pan. Press in 1/4 cup walnuts on half so kids can have nut-free version.

Pecan Pie Bars I

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
Fantastic! Pecan pie flavor without being overwhelmingly sweet, as crust to filling ratio is about 50-50. Hint: don't bake in stoneware as sides will overcook.

Broccoli and Tortellini Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
Good, but only after changes and a night in the fridge to let flavors meld. I made 1.5 times the dressing, but used only 1/2 the amount of sugar. I didn't have raisins, so I used craisins which gave it a nice tang. The sunflower seeds I bought were not salted. So I definitely had to add a fair amount of salt - in the 1/2 to 1 t. range. Also, I had used the food processor to shred the onion, which may have released more of the onion juices than desired. Next time I'll chop by hand. Lastly, I bought refrigerated tortellini, but only boiled it for 4 minutes - a touch too chewy at that point - to make sure the pasta didn't fall apart during the mixing and to account for the pasta softening while marinating in the sauce overnight. In the end, it was pretty tasty.

Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: May 2, 2009
I was looking for a crisp, crumbly sugar cookie. I'm not sure if this it, but they are delicious! We haven't been able to wait until the cookies are fully cooled - maybe they'll crisp up later. If they don't, we still adore this buttery, sugary recipe.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2009
Wow. Excellent. My personalizations... Cut peas to 1/2 c. and add 1/2 c. corn. Reduce celery to 1/3 c. Dice 1 potato and boil with vegs in swanson chicken broth, then reuse broth later in recipe. Can make with Pillsbury pie crusts, but also great with puff pastry. Remember to mix veg and sauce in bowl before filling pie, otherwise sauce too thick to get down to bottom. No extra sauce needed.

Guinness® Corned Beef

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2009
Wonderful! Add 3-4 carrots, 2 potatoes, an onion, and additional Guiness. Very tasty, all-in-one meal. Cook in slow cooker all day and don't forget to put in spice packet.

Brazilian Black Bean Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2009
Fun, fresh flavors! The stew is good until you add the mango / cilantro -- then it's awesome! I would double the mango / cilantro. Put in 1 deseeded jalapeno and it wasn't spicy in the least. Guests loved it. I can't believe this is healthy. Also, makes more like 10-12 servings and prep time about 1 hour for chopping. Pair with simple spinach salad, sour dough or Italian bread, and light, fruity white wine. Attractive dinner party meal.

Baby Spinach Omelet

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2009
Good... perhaps use as base? Perhaps use some Ementhal cheese to kick it up.

Wild Rice Stuffing for Turkey

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
Yuck! Don't know what went wrong - I followed the recipe exactly. The spices were overwhelming and the wild rice tasted funny. I'm from Minnesota and love wild rice, so not sure why this was - can it go bad??? In any case, not a single one of my guests ate more than a bite.

Cheese Souffles

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
Delicious. Simple. Kids like it, too. In my small ramekins, I needed six dishes. I used mild cheddar.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
Hubby was sick and declined breakfast, but when I coaxed him to try this bread (in form of muffins), he ate 5 in one sitting! As muffins filled nearly to the top of the tin, I baked at 25-30 minutes. Still had enough for a loaf of bread. Sooo good, especially fresh out of the oven. Didn't change thing except add a teaspoon of vanilla.

Apple Raisin French Toast Strata

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2008
Gosh so frustrating. I'm blending two recipes in my mind. Well, I recall that the cream cheese is better in chunks than spread on the bread.

Amish Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2008
Way too sweet! Even my friend who will practically eat spoonfuls of sugar thought this was too sweet. I think cutting back to 1/4 c. maybe? Also, you need to keep the dressing amount if making for the next day (which allows flavors to blend better) because the noodles really do soak it up overnight. ** UPDATE ** I've tinkered with this recipe and it never works out. Too sweet or too much sauce or too tangy. Bleck!

French Toast Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2008
Oh so yummy. I prefer raspberries for a bit of tart, though blueberries were ok too. This makes an excellent brunch recipe because you can prep the night before. I use 16 slices of 1" bread, which over night fills the baking dish perfectly. Otherwise follow directions exactly.

Kid's Favorite Passover Pizza

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2008
Easy. Fun. Each kid makes their own. Make sure not to buy the thin crackers because the sauce will make it too soggy.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2008
Flavorful, fast, low cal, cheap, and easy - an all around winner. Yummy enough to serve company. Fast and easy to make - can easily prep the sauce in advance and throw the fish under the broiler shortly before serving. If you line the pan with tin foil brushed with olive oil - clean up is a snap. Even with regular mayo and regular parmesan, still low in calories. Tilapia and the other ingredients are pretty inexpensive (except for the cheese but you only use a little). I didn't have celery salt - just used plain and didn't miss it one bit. Otherwise followed directions to a T.

Cherry Tomato Corn Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2008
Quite yummy and healthy. Took this to a potluck - it was the only dish with nothing left at the end of the party. Appeals to young and old and is a breeze to make. I was surprised that the basil went over so big.
