Red, White, and Blueberry Fruit Salad

Reviewed: May 29, 2013
A simple and great recipe. I tossed everything together, using just enough sugar to coat the fruit lightly, before leaving our house for a barbeque and it was ready by the time the food was served. We've made this often with just strawberries and bananas, but the blueberries add a nice touch to the dish.

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.

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.

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..

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.

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.

Cucumber Ice Cream Sorbet

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2014
I tried this simply because I had been given a number of cucumbers and had some bananas I needed to use. I seeded and peeled the cucumber. This has a great banana flavor with just a touch of cucumber and is not overly sweet. The lemon is not a strong flavor in this as written. I used the juice of one good-sized lemon, which was close to the 1/2 cup in the 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.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
A favorite of ours for years. I sometimes add vanilla. We prefer to use crunchy peanut butter, but creamy is good too.

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).

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.
