Jewish Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2014
Used 1/2 cup sugar and 3 tsps of cinnamon like suggested by Janyce. I also mixed the cinnamon sugar mixture in the apples. Turned out perfectly! Whole house smelled amazing also!

Pecan Crackers

Reviewed: May 19, 2014
I didn't have pecans so I used about a cup of roasted peanuts that I put thru the blender to make a rough chop. I also used organic coconut palm sugar (which tastes like a very light brown sugar) and they were great! Even better a day later. These are more like a candy and everyone loved them! Will make again with pecans but I think the family will prefer them with peanuts. I think I'll go have another one right now!

My Country Style Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2014
I tried this tonight for dinner and it was a hit! I followed the instructions and it came out tender, nicely seasoned with only the onion soup mix and very tasty. I will use this again!

Guinness® Corned Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2014
Just tried this recipe after always being disappointed with the slow cooker/boiled type of corn beef. All I can say is WOW!!!! Soooo much better! The flavor is phenomenal! I added in carrots and onions during the last hour and they were perfect wonderful flavor, in fact next time I'll add more onions they came out soo good! The corned beef wasn't quite as tender as in the crock pot but I think it's because I had to take it out a tad early, I'm sure the longer you let it cook the more tender it will get. Ditch your slow cooker recipes, this is by far the best!

German New Year Pretzel

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2014
I used orange zest instead of lemon, but wasn't thrilled with the crust of the pretzel. If I were to spend the time making these again, I might try a 350 oven with a tray of water in the bottom of the oven.

Men Love This Steak

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2014
This recipe was probably the BEST steak I have ever eaten in my entire life! My family loved it. I used onions instead of peppers because that's what I had. Outstanding!!

Easy Alfredo Sauce I

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2014
I followed directions exactly but the sauce was WAY too thin for my liking! I did add some fresh garlic to the butter as it melted and slowly added the cheese after the heavy cream was hot. The flavor was good but it never thickened up as stated. I'll have to add something to make it more sauce like - cream cheese? Cornstarch? I think I'll go back to my other recipe. Waste of pricy cream and cheese!!

Lentil and Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2014
This recipe is wonderful. We all enjoyed it. The only thing that I changed was, I cooked the ditalini separately,and put it in a gallon size ziploc bag and refrigerated it. I add the pasta to each individual bowl of soup, so that the pasta stays firm and doesn't go mushy on me. I always do this with any soups that have pasta in them. Makes a huge difference. Will make this recipe often, during the cold winter months.

Healthier Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2014
This turned out good. Not everyone in my family like hot and spicy food,but they LOVED this chicken. Very flavorful and not hot and spicy at all. I also sprayed the pan that I used so the wings wouldn't stick. This is definitely a keeper.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2013
I have been baking since I was 10 (43 now) and have a culinary degree. This is by far the absolute best sugar cookie recipe I have used. Sugar cookies should not be overly sweet and these are just perfect. My 14 and 17 year old have made them alone and they were fantastic. If you have a problem with it becoming sticky, split or quarter the dough before you start rolling and keep the rest refrigerated until you need it. Above all take your time.

Million Dollar Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2013
Smitty - use french or Italian bread, for goodness sake - you won't make it because of a small thing your hubbie doesn't like? He wouldn't even be able to tell because of the yummy juices it absorbs!! I used chicken breasts,some grilled red peppers from a jar, made my own creme fraiche from this site. SO good!!

Roasted Okra

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2013
My whole family really enjoyed these. I took the suggestion of another reviewer and soaked the okra in water and lime juice I didn't notice that it helped much but I also don't mind the sliminess of okra. Other than the water and lime I made as the recipes calls for. I will definitely make these again.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2013
I think this is a good base recipe that with a few modifications comes out great! I change the amount of bananas to 3 large ripe bananas coarsely mashed. Also brown sugar instead of white really adds a nice touch. I add a little nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice to the batter and then sprinkle them on top before putting it in the oven. Finally nuts are optional, it comes out just as good without them! Over all so yummy!

German Spaetzle Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2013
I made this today, it was great and I'm thinking it's a good base recipe. I think next time I'll add some green chili's and cumin and serve mixec with roasted garlic and Mexican cheese. I also used a potato ricer and it seemed just fine.

Savory Breakfast Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2013
As I always do the first time, I made this recipe as written. Next time I'll add more bacon and fresh corn instead of canned. I also think a can of chopped chilis and/or mexican corn and cheese would be a good change up in flavor. Much better than those egg/sausage biscuits I've been making!
