Magic Cookie Bars II

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2009
These are the bomb! I think adding some milk chocolate on top is a MUST! It makes it so decadent. I toasted my coconut a bit before adding it because I'm not a fan of chewy coconut. I also omitted the walnuts because of personal choice, and I didn't have any butterscotch chips, but they were still so good.

Maria's Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
I'm giving this 5 stars because my husband enjoyed it. I think chicken breast is dry in general, but he said this was juicy and tender. For me personally, I would give it 4 stars because chicken breast is not my favorite. I think I would like this dish better with chicken thighs. Anyway, the filling was yummy. I saved money and made it with cottage cheese. I put cottage cheese, spinach, egg, parmesan, salt, and pepper in a food processor and processed it. It was yummy. I also added a bit of mozzarella cheese. I simmered the sauce with some spices, and I cooked the chicken covered in foil without the mozzarella and then the last 10 or so minutes of baking I removed the foil, added the cheese, and baked.

Burger or Hot Dog Buns

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
We loved these. I made the dough in the bread machine and used a little less than half wheat flour and the rest all-purpose flour. These will be my go-to rolls for hamburgers and hot dogs for now anyway. Edit to add: For anyone who ends up with dense or flat rolls, my advice would be after you make the dough, let it rise for an hour or until about double. Then punch it down, shape into buns and let rise again for about 35 minutes. This is what I did, and my rolls were perfect.

Cinnamon Griddle Cakes

Reviewed: May 20, 2009
These are scrumptious! Here are the few changes I made: I'm a buttermilk freak (it gives flavor), so I used a cup of buttermilk and aded 1/2 teaspoon baking soda to the dry ingredients to go with it. I also reduced baking powder to 3 teaspoons. Also, as far as mixing, I just mixed the dry ingredients together and added the wet ingredients one at a time, because you don't want to overmix pancakes, so doing it that way was fine for me, AND it saved a dish. Also, since buttermilk is thicker than regular milk, I added a little milk to thin out the batter a little bit. I left in the corn syrup and left out the topping. I topped them with regular syrup. They were sooooo good.

Homemade Pancake Syrup

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
When I made this recipe as written (minus maple extract), it was too sweet, so I tweaked it to make it a five star recipe. I only use brown sugar; to me the white is totally unnecessary. Just use 3/4 to 1 cup brown sugar, and I also add a little bit of salt. My husband loves the syrup. Oh, and I don't have maple extract so I use plenty of vanilla.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2009
This cornbread is moist, delicious, and is not crumbly. I cut the sugar to 1/2 cup, and I could have cut it down more. This recipe is definitely a keeper.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
Seriously good brownies. I like them better than a box of my favorite. They are ooey and gooey...truly bombshell brownies. I don't even measure my vanilla. I add plenty.

Old-Time Buttermilk Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
This pie is amazing (as a base). I gave it 4 stars because I only put little more than a cup of sugar, and it's sweet enough. I also put about 4 T flour and eye-balled the last 3 ingredients, as I am a vanilla fanatic. I used freshly-squeezed lemon juice as well (with no curdling). I made a different pie crust from this site. I just wanted to say though that this pie filling is wonderful. It's tangy, sweet, and delicious!

Double Chocolate Brownie Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
This cake was a hit. I made it for Christmas. I had to leave dinner to catch a plane (I ate a piece of cake though, and it was moist and chocolaty), but my sister told me it got rave reviews. Even my little nephew who doesn't like chocolate ate the cake. She told me the cake was eaten up when I asked her about it another day. I didn't have sour cream, so I used a substitute I found on the web that used buttermilk and butter (sorry I can't remember it exactly at this moment). And as always with baked goods, I added plenty of vanilla! I don't think I added 2 cups of chocolate chips though, but the cake was chocolaty enough. I also made like a ganache topping for the cake. I will make this cake again.

Buttermilk Pound Cake II

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2008
Excellent cake. It was wonderful. We ate the whole thing (none had to be thrown out). I only used 5 eggs because I could not imagine putting six eggs in a cake, and it was still dense and moist. I made my own buttermilk with lemon juice because I didn't have any, and it worked great. I added plenty of lemon, vanilla, and a bit of almond flavor to the cake. I also only used about 2 1/2 cups of sugar, and it was sweet enough. It was great plain with ice cream, but I also topped with penuche frosting. Edit to add: This cake is amazing! I made it for Thanksgiving. This time I bought real buttermilk and the cake was even better, in my opinion. I used fresh lemon juice as well as a little lemon and a generous amount of vanilla extract. Again, only used 5 eggs and 2 1/2 cups of sugar. The cake was dense, moist, and delicious!

Wonderful Banana Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
Goodness this is a good cake! Make it; I don't believe you'll be disappointed. It's moist and banana-ey. The only change I made was to add some vanilla.

Simple BBQ Ribs

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2008
I can't believe I made these! They were tender and flavorful. Yummy! This was the first time I made ribs, and this recipe is perfect for a beginning rib-maker like me. I pretty much eye-balled the ingredients I added into the water. I also added fresh garlic and onion and a beef bouillion cube. I added the much-reduced broth to the rib pan in the oven. I only had to bake the ribs for an hour after boiling for 45 minutes. Maybe that's because I didn't have a whole lot of ribs. Please try these ribs!

Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2008
Wonderful meatloaf! This was my first time ever making meatloaf and my husband gave it "two thumbs up". I eye-balled most of the ingredients, except the eggs and the ketchup (I measured them), and we didn't have steak sauce at all. And the meatloaf was still great. I didn't use a whole packet of onion soup mix, and I'm not sure if that's the reason it wasn't salty. I even had to add salt after it was cooked. I also used crumbled plain crouton, and oh yeah, for the cheese I used shredded mozzarella and a taco cheese blend. Wonderful!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies III

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2008
I make these as brownies. They are excellent brownies. The chocolate flavor is great. I don't freeze the dough. Just spread the batter/ dough in a square pan, and voila...yummy, chocolaty brownies!

Chicken In Sour Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2008
Yummy! This chicken was great! I only had 4 chicken thighs, and I eye-balled most of the ingredients. I didn't have dill weed, but added some garlic. I also seasoned the chicken with seasoning salt and pepper. I wish I had had some rice, because the "gravy" made by baking was yummy.

Jo's Rosemary Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2008
This recipe was great! I think I forgot the sugar, and since I didn't see rosemary in the pantry, I put more italian seasoning. The bread was wonderfully crusty on the outside and soft on the inside. And because I wanted the bread done quickly, I used quick-rise yeast and a rapid-bake cycle on the machine, and it worked fablously. Edit to add: I used water and the bread was great.

White Bread For The Bread Machine

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2008
I just got a bread machine, and for my very first loaf I tried this recipe. It turned out well. I used quick rise yeast but kept the recipe the same. Consequently I used the rapid-bake setting on the machine. The bread was a little on the salty side for me, so next time I use this recipe I may reduce the salt. Bread-making is so easy with a bread machine.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2007
These were wonderful. While my husband was eating them he was saying mmm... I used 1/3 cup of oil instead of butter and spread some margarine spread on the inside of the muffins we were about to eat. I also added plenty of vanilla to the banana mixture and didn't measure my cinnamon for the topping. Delicious recipe!

G-ma's Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2007
This rice is yummy. This was my first time making Mexican rice, and being such a big Mexican food fan, I'm impressed with this recipe. I didn't really measure any of my spices/ salt/ pepper, and I added some green bell pepper. Thanks for the recipe.
