Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011

Orange Jewel Cookies-Evelyn

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
My MIL's version of orange slice cookies. Good. DH loves them. The easiest way to cut up the orange slices (I dice them) is to use a lightly buttered knife and drop the pieces into part of the sugar (I measure out the sugar, then separate about 1/4 cup to drop the pieces into, either rolling or shaking to coat).

Fresco Salsa

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
Very good, very fresh-tasting. We used half an onion (a large one) and a green pepper, for lack of a red and yellow one. We used Aneheim peppers, which added just a light touch of heat. Good as-is, but with potential for many different tastes from this point.

Baked Pork Steak with apples and onions

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
A nice change from creamed or grilled pork steak. We don't care for the Worchestershire sauce in this. The apples add a touch of sweetness-next time I'll bake and extra apple or two with this.

Creamed Peas and Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
I used Yukon Gold potatoes, left out the dill (personal taste), and used green peas. Very good, simple recipe.

Cranberry Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
Very good. Not a crispy cookie, soft and flavorful, sweet with the occasional tang of a cranberry. I didn't use the frosting-I'm out of powdered sugar-but DH rates these a five and I agree.

Glazed Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
Excellent! I used tenderloins thawed from frozen. I meant to drain the tenderloins and add more sauce half-way through but forgot. A light taste of the sauce permeatted the meat perfectly and the sauce was great with the oven-baked rice. Will definitely make this again-and hopefully try the wings, too.

Skillet Beef and Macaroni

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2010
Great quick recipe; the kids like it best the second day. I usually omit the green pepper (per kids' tastes) and occasionally add corn. We like it best, reheated in the oven with grated cheese on top. I never used a recipe for this, but this IS the recipe I've made for over 35 years.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2010
Excellent recipe. I doubled the almond flavoring and let the dough chill overnight. I rolled them to 3/8" on parchment with a coating of powdered sugar. I chilled each sheet in the fridge after cutting out the shapes and baked them for nine minutes each, plus two minutes cooling time on the sheet. DH declared them winners, and he doesn't like sugar cookies. They did puff up a bit more than I'd like, but will loojk great frosted. This is an easy recipe that made 48 cutout cookies for me. Next time I may divide the dough and use lemon extract and vanilla extract so that we have several flavors from one recipe..

Nutty Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2010
This is very good. I didn't care for the nutmeg and will use cinnamon next time I make it, thus the 4-star rating. I made the full recipe of topping and put half in the freezer for an easy dessert another night, used two large apples and half the topping. I used Granny Smith apples, which were very tart.

Granny Kat's Pumpkin Roll

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2010
I used parchment paper, which made rolling the cake easy. I didn't use all the filling, but more than half of it. Added maple extract, along with a little extra cinnamon and nutmeg, to the filling. Very sweet, but well received at work and at home.

Pineapple Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2010
Dh ate a slice and declared this a keeper. Moist, with a taste of banana and a faint hint of pineapple.

Simple Carnitas

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2010
DH loved this and rates it a high 5. I liked it, would have rated it a 4 myself. Slight changes-I halved the recipe, made it in a 2-quart crockpot, using cubed frozen pork, no water, used 2 garlic cloves instead of 3 (personal taste). Cooked it on "high" for 2 hours, then on "low" for one. Shredded the pork and returned it to the juice that formed in the crockpot for another hour. We don't eat much pork, but DH is already requesting I make this again. Thanks for the recipe, Ken. 8/29 Used the leftover pork & rice to make pork enchiladas-the taste is even better the second day, and I have a new "taste" for work. Thanks again!

Orange Balls II

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2010
This is a recipe from our childhoods-DH & I both remember these as Christmas cookies, but they make a great, cool, very sweet treat in the summer, too. I use confectioners sugar and/or finely chopped pecans to roll them and chill the mixture, then use a small cookie scoop to form the balls.

Pineapple Chicken Tenders

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2010
I felt this made the chicken taste like it was bad; DH said it tasted "okay" but doesn't want it made again. Not for us, but thanks for the recipe.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2010
A nice, basic recipe for those who like McDonald's-style pancakes; not as sweet, but that is easily changed. Great for company when you don't know their taste in food. I used one cup of sour milk and omitted the vinegar, otherwise followed the recipe as written.

Cornbread and Sausage Stuffing

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2010
I was happy to find this, as it's very similar to a recipe I used for Thanksgiving for years. I use Pepperidge Farm cornbread stuffing mix and adjust the seasonings to our taste. A great time-saver if you worked all night and need a Thanksgiving Dinner on the table-or need something with chicken and a vegetable on a weeknight.

Triple Berry Crisp

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2010
Not bad...DH loved the crust. I like the "cookie" type with the same crust and preserves a little better.
