Like these alot. I don't like raisins so I used dates.

Beer Cake

I make this all the time. I like it without any frosting and cheap beer that doesn't have much flavor works better than wasting my microbrews on it. I've made a chocolate variation using chocolate mixes but I like the original the best.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Seneca Schurbon's rating

This is fabulous! I printed out so many pancake recipes and I have no interest in trying the rest of them. I substituted oat flour (grind oatmeal in blender), put in 2 1/2 cups milk, and a tsp pumpkin pie spice. Great with the maple syrup, great with whipped cream and the maple syrup, great reheated in the microwave and thats a good thing cause there's a lot of batter and only 2 of us. Although my husband ate 3 big ones.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies
Rating: Unrated
Seneca Schurbon's rating

I have tried this recipe as written and with the modification of the extra cup of sugar that so many reviewers posted. My conclusion was that the recipe as written was the best if you are going to roll out and frost. Otherwise it's just too sweet and it doesn't hold it's shape through baking as well with the extra sugar. If you have kind of defined cookie cutter and don't want your snowflakes looking more like poinsettias, follow the recipe. With the extra cup of sugar, it makes a dynamite "form into balls/roll in sugar" type of sugar cookie. I think this is great, more versatile. Don't need 2 recipes.

Good change of pace. The rolling is not really that bad, you just can't get in a hurry and an extra set of hands would help.

Pink Rhubarb Punch
Rating: Unrated
Seneca Schurbon's rating

Zazzy! I made it sugar-free by using 1 tablespoon liquid stevia in place of the sugar. I didn't have any suitable jello so I just used 1 sugar-free hawaiian punch single packet in there instead. I didn't want the rhubarb masked too much anyway. I didn't add the additional 2 cups water that were supposed to go in with the jello figuring I could add more carbonated water later if needed. (That's what I used instead of ginger ale.) Nice to have something a little unusual to drink!

Rhubarb Slush
Rating: Unrated
Seneca Schurbon's rating

I did a few things different. I used frozen thawed rhubarb and measured out 6 cups of rhubarb with rhubarb juice. It is puréeable at this stage but you still gotta cook it or you'll get sick. Ask me how I know! This increases the rhubarb flavor over the original recipe I'm sure. I brought the rhubarb up to a boil with the 2 cups sugar and three cups water. I recommend using the full amount of sugar and using carbonated water later rather than short the sugar and use soda as the mixer because more sugar makes it easier to scoop out and slush up from a frozen state. Besides, wouldn't you rather have your extra sweetener be sugar rather than HFC? I agree with most of the other reviewers that it is too sweet if you use all the sugar and then top it off with Sprite. I have never in my life seen a 6 oz can of frozen juice, so I used 12 oz. That was probably wrong. Next time I will use half of it and see how that goes. I would like the rhubarb flavor to be dominant. Then I doubled the alcohol. 1 cup of gin is not very much for as big as this recipe is and you'll add something fizzy later too. Alcohol also keeps it scoopable in the freezer, but it's easy enough to add it during serving to keep everybody happy.

Sheet Pan Smoked Sausage, Apple, and Root Veggie Dinner

Made it exactly as written except there was no Hilshire Farms here so I used the locally available sausage. It as fabulous and my husband who doesn't eat vegetables said he could gorge on it. We had it two nights in a row since I had enough veggies. Will be in our consistent rotation.

Low-Carb Salisbury Steak
Rating: Unrated
Seneca Schurbon's rating

Best Salisbury steak I ever had. We doubled the gravy as many reviewers suggested and it was about right. Used a -ton of mushrooms because that's the best part for me. I accidentally tripled the Worchestershire in the gravy, but otherwise kept the recipe the same. Had no issues with patties coming apart.
