Fabulous Homemade Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2007
This recipe was WONDERFUL! I had baked these a few days before we had a power outage...so all the neighbors came over and they tried it and were amazed. One neighbor wouldn't even eat it with jam because he just wanted the taste of the bread. I've made it twice, once forgetting the salt and another accidentally putting in white instead of brown sugar. Both times it was fantastic. This one's going in my recipe box.

Stracciatella I

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2007
My entire family loved this soup! It's easy to make with only seven ingredients. I made several servings, but it all disappeared in a day. I did substitute many of the ingredients, but it turned out great anyway. My substitutions were: Angel hair pasta instead of ditalini Swiss cheese for Romano Dried parsley instead of fresh When I stirred in the grated Swiss cheese, it melted in the water and the angel hair pasta started sticking to it. It was wonderful nonetheless when I felt like soup and found lots of eggs in the fridge. Thanks!

Chewy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2007
I have to be fair...this is the best granola I have ever had. True, it is a bit crumbly, but I add extra honey to ensure it sticks together sufficiently. I made it once, and then the next day found myself making more. THE WHOLE 9X13 PAN WAS GONE IN ONE DAY!!! Rave reviews from my other guinuea pigs as well. Great present.

World's Best Scones! From Scotland to the Savoy to the U.S.

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2007
I have been making bread by hand for years and years, but this was my first time at scones. I was honestly disappointed. The taste was funny; I don't know if that's b/c of the fresh blended cranberries or not. I'll keep looking.

Grandma's Strawberry Milkshake

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2007
This milkshake was pretty good. I had to add 1/3 cup of sugar on top of everything else to make it sweet enough. I made four servings, but they were really big - enough to fill a tall glass. Each serving calls for one cup of milk, and I was supposed to put in four cups. My KitchenAid blender wasn't big enough, (which is pretty big!) so I could only put in two cups. Very filling, however! Thanks.

California Smoothie

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2007
I thought this smoothie was great, but my family thought that the lemon was a little overpowering as the dominant flavor. I made three servings, and so put in three 8 oz. cups of yogurt - next time I'll only put in two. I still thought it was a great smoothie, though! Thanks for sharing!

Freeze-Easy Chocolate Shake

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2007
This recipe didn't sound amazing at first, but after making it I learned that it is GREAT! I didn't measure the cups of ice cream - just took giant scoops out of the carton and dumped them into the blender. As for the milk, I changed two things: I used 1/2 a cup instead of a whole, and I used 4% milk instead of regular. The chocolate syrup all floated down to the bottom and sat underneath the blades, but that was okay - I just drizzled it on top of the shake when it came out last. If it had mixed in, it probably would have been too chocolatey. I LOVED this shake - not too thick, not too thin, not too chocolatey. The best!

Peach Upside-Down Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2007
This was a great recipe. I made this with homegrown peaches from our peach tree - windfalls at that - and it was really good. I thought the almond extract was a little strong (I might halve it) but was overruled by everyone else who loved it just as it was. I baked it on 300 for about half the time and then upped it to 350 for 20ish minutes. It came out a light beautiful golden brown on top with some bubbles. Great presentation!!! Definitely will stay in my recipe box. Enjoy!

Oatmeal Waffles

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2007
This recipe is great! My family asks me to make this for them all the time! I've made 4 or 5 batches of these waffles in just the past month! Instead of using only all-purpose flour, I use 1 cup wheat flour and only a 1/2 cup all-purpose flour to make the recipe heartier and healthier. Everyone LOVES these waffles!!!

Chocolate Cookie Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2008
I've tried so many different kinds of chocolate frosting, including storebought, and WOW DOES THIS ONE BEAT THEM ALL! It's very light and fluffy. I use a KitchenAid mixer to make it, and it's amazing. You can't help licking out the bowl! :) I would definintely recommend it for anything chocolate - I use it for cakes.

Lemon Cake with Lemon Filling and Lemon Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2008
I was looking for the ideal lemon cake, and once I hit this one, I knew it was THE cake to bake. My grandmother got us stuck in a snowbank this winter, and we had to call him to get us out with his tractor. I promised to pay him back in cake, and he asked if I could make lemon. I said, "Absolutely!", and immediately started searching. THIS IS IT!!! The cake I baked for the neighbor looked so good I decided to bake one for us. Frosting was excellent with fresh grated lemon in it. My grandmother screwed up the lemon filling by not following the directions to a T, but somehow it turned out, with a perfect curded texture, to boot. I completed the appearance of the layer cake by putting candy lemons on the outside of the top layer, making an outer ring, and then joined four in the middle, making a four-prong star. The frosting underneath I had swirled into delicate waves, and once complete with the lemon candies, was absolutely AMAZING!!! This one is staying in my recipe box forever.

Cilantro-Lime Dressing

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2008
This was very good, even though I did alter it a lot for lack of the correct ingredients. Instead of lime juice, I added a bit more lemon juice than what it called for. I also didn't have ginger root or garlic cloves on hand, so I put in a little bit of ginger and garlic powder instead to taste. I also left out the jalapenos and instead placed peperoncinis on top of the salad, which was very good with tomatoes and peppers. Overall, my family said it was different but that they loved it. The next night when we had salads, my father requested the same salad dressing again over all the storebought kinds we have! Thanks for a great recipe. :)

Apple Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2008
I would probably rate these a three and a half. I was really excited about making these until I tasted them. Even though it took me only about 5 min. to mix, the end result wasn't very good. I doubled the amount of apples and cinnamon, which helped, but probably will double or triple the sugar next time! I'll most likely use a different recipe next time. I sprinkled the tops with brown sugar, which was good, but then the bottom lacked flavor. I will say this though - they're good IF you don't like sugar!

New Duchess Spice Cake with Maple Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2008
I didn't try the cake, but I picked this recipe for the frosting. I was looking for something different, and maple frosting sounded wonderful on top of the applesauce spice cake I made. Instead of maple flavoring, I added maple syrup. Like another reviewer noted, the flavor wasn't very strong, so I ended up adding around five to six tablespoons of real maple syrup. I also used 1 cup of butter instead of 1/2 butter, 1/2 shortening. In my opinion, it gives a better taste and a fluffier frosting. All in all, the frosting had wonderful coloring and gave just a hint of maple flavor. Thanks so much!

Brownie Mix in a Jar II

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
The only bad thing I can say about this recipe is that it has too much of dark chocolate taste for me (I am NOT a dark chocolate person). Also, I did not put in the nuts because I hate nuts and it gave the brownies a weird taste. If I make it again, I will definitely add more sugar and will use at least semi-sweet cocoa. I would also say that this mix is even better with chocolate chips! Overall, this is a good mix - if you like nuts and dark chocolate!

Fluffy Pancakes with Wheat Germ and Applesauce

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
Wow - these were great! We had made applesauce from our slightly withered autumn apples a couple of days ago but didn't eat very much. Dad found this recipe this morning and served them to us. Definitely something to wake up to! The opportunity to add wheat germ and use up applesauce was great. The only thing to change... Mom wanted these thinner - they're probably 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick, so Dad added some more milk. Beautiful and tasty nonetheless. Thanks so much!

Puppy Chow

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
This was an amazing recipe. My whole family loved it and I will DEFINITELY make it again! I recommend this recipe to anyone who is looking for an easy, quick, and amazing recipe! The only modifications I made was that instead of using a bag to mix it, I used the cereal box from the Chex for a more sanitary way to mix it. I also added more powdered sugar after mixing the cereal and chocolate/PB mix because I found it didn't cover it all. Thanks to Nikki for the great recipe!

Pumpkin Cake III

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
I found that this made great cake batter that tasted really good after I added a lot more spices and sugar. I recommend you add spices and sugar to taste so the cake tastes better. Thanks for the recipe.

White Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
I was looking for a white chocolate frosting for the Red Velvet Cake IV on this site. I found this recipe and made it. I read several reviews, and I followed their suggestion to cook the white chocolate, milk, and flour longer; when I took it off the stove, it was very thick. I'm not sure what I did wrong, but it turned out too thin, and I've ended up adding more sugar and some flour. Other than that, however, the flavor is wonderful, and I'm sure it will compliment my friend's birthday cake perfectly! Thanks!
