The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2013
We've made this recipe twice this year already. My husband prepared the first batch and I made the second batch. I love it just as it is. I did throw down powdered sugar on the counter when rolling out my dough like a lot of other reviews suggested and I loved it. This dough warms up quickly when left on the counter, so we like to put ours in the freezer just before rolling it out. This is delicious and we will be using this mix when making cookies to give out as gifts. Yummy, quick and easy!

Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2013
Mine did not rise like they should have. I made them exactly as the recipe stated. I thought there was just enough PB flavor and absolutely not enough Banana flavor. I'm sure my husband will love it the way it is. The tops did not brown as fast as the bottoms. I would absolutely add more banana and something to help it rise a little more

Gel's Green Beans and Beef

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2013
Obviously TBSP is supposed to be TSP (as the original posted noted in the comments section). We LOVED this recipe! It is so excellent that we are using these flavors on chicken and shrimp and just about everything. This will be a regular meal in our house for sure! (we have 3 kids, (12y, 7y,5y) all loved it).

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2013
This is a good recipe. I used marinade and just threw it in the skillet. It turned out good. Will repeat again!

Willard Family German Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: May 12, 2012
Great Cake! My brother doesn't like cake at all, but he has always loved German Chocolate cake.... so he knows when it's good and he loved this cake and frosting. As did everyone else. It was super light, fluffy and moist (don't overcook it even a little). I made 36 cupcakes and they were amazing. You do need to cook the frosting and stir for 10-12 minutes, but I thickened it too much because as it cooled it got much to thick especially after adding the nuts and coconut flakes. To correct for this just add SWEETENED CONDENSED MILK and a little real milk until it brings it to the consistency you can spread. I would suggest when you are heating the sauce for the frosting you should stop cooking it whenever you notice it no longer falls immediately back into place when you move your spoon through the sauce. This will be close to 9-12 minutes depending on your stove. Remember, as it cools it will get even firmer. Other than my learning curve, this recipe is an ABSOLUTE WIN and I am using it anytime I need German chocolate cake!

Instant Russian Tea

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2012
My husband found this to have a little too much tang, so we added just a small amount (1/4 cup) more of instant tea. Other than that, it was a perfect replica of what he loves to drink in the winter!

Pat's Pankcakes

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2012
Best pancakes ever. Easy to prepare the dry ingredients well in advance and then just add milk and eggs when it's time to enjoy.

Fudge Brownies I

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
can I give it less than 1 star? I tried this twice. Once with 2 eggs and it was inedible. It was a gooey mess that then cooled and hardened into what could only be a doorstop. With all 4 eggs as the recipe suggests it was MUCH better but I never got that great chocolate taste that I usually get from box mixes. For all the rave reviews on these brownies it was a major let down.... twice.

Baked Cheese Olives

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
I hate green olives, I made them for a party and people really liked them, someone else took the leftovers home ONLY use JUST enough breading, it is very dry and I even added more butter to the mix.

One Dish Chicken Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
I think this rocks! I think it is awesome, as is, but I did throw in some fresh sliced mushrooms and let me say, it just REALLY took it up a notch. but really, it is GREAT without them, too. I suggest getting a stuffing mix with lots of seasoning, I bought Stove Top chicken flavored stuffing and it added plenty of flavor. YUM! This is a keeper for sure!!

Fluffy Biscuits

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2008
We made some biscuits from "Joy of cooking" and they were awful and we threw them away. we tried these and we followed this recipe to the T. They turned out VERY fluffy and yummy. I would agree that the outside had a little bit of a flour taste from when you rolled it on the floured counter, but what do you expect, you just rolled it on a floured counter! These were VERY fluffy, and were great. we will probably use this recipe again. At 3/4" thickness it only made 7 1/2 biscuits.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2008
as far as taste goes, AWESOME! This really has a great taste and I am certain I will be making this again and again. My only issue is the brown sugar/ketchup mixture on the bottom of the pan hardens in some places and becomes chewy and hard to eat or even get off your spoon/fork. I used ground beef b/c it was all I had and I knew it would create more grease so I added extra bread crumbs and it turned out great. VERY EASY To make as well!

Chicken and Dumplings III

Reviewed: May 27, 2008
We kept back 3 cups of water and the soup is a little runny for our taste, so we just thickened it up with some flour and it was pretty darn good. It will be a repeat in our house for sure! Other than thickening it was good JUST AS IT WAS!
