Restaurant-Style Coleslaw I

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2013
I used less sugar, no milk ( used Miracle Whip light, didn't seem to need it?) and added celery seed. Very good, used to top BBQ sandwiches.

White Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2012
I found a recipe similar to this online via Pinterest. It had 5 tablespoons flour and all butter. I've tried this recipe before and could not get it turn out. I decided to try it again (I had a buttercream as a backup) and I'm glad I did. I followed the directions more closely this time. I did put my flour mixture in the freezer for 15-20 minutes, per the other recipe. I beat the sugar and butter for 10-15 minutes with a little corn syrup. I added the flour mixture and beat it longer, also adding a little almond extract. This frosting is not quick, it takes a long time with all the beating required to get the sugar crystals out. When it’s finished it tastes like the whipped cream frosting you get on a grocery store bakery cake. It is lighter and less sweet than a traditional buttercream.

Toffee Cashew Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
Made a half batch in an 8*8 pan, expect using a whole egg. I have to agree with another reviewer. These were bland and not very sweet. The bottom layer was crumbly and bland. The top layer didn;t have much flavor except for the nuts and was also very crumbly, the nuts fall off while eating. Would not make again--a waste of very expense nuts.

Cheese Garlic Biscuits II

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2011
Scaled to make 6--added garlic salt. Followed others advice of not over mixing and my biscuits did not come out flat. However, they were dense (I cut the butter into the flour mixture with my pastry cutter). Dense and flavorless, would not make again. Did not taste like Red Lobster or Ruby Tuesday bicuits.

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2011
Not a frosting, more like an icing. Very runny after following the recipe exactly. Had to alter the end product to try and thicken it enough so it wouldn't run off my cupcakes. I wish I would have read the reviews. With such a high rating, I was expecting something much better. Would use again if I needed a thin icing, but not as a frosting.

Key Lime Cheesecake I

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2011
I took the time to juice the key limes and zest, expecting an awesome cheesecake. This was not it. I tasted the batter and it was so tart, it didn't even taste like a dessert. I added more sugar and used sugar in the crust. I baked it longer than stated and after sitting in the fridge overnight, it was not set. We tried it, but it was not all eaten. By far the worst dessert I have ever made.

Belle's Hamburger Buns

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
I had the same issues that most others did. The dough was wonderful and light, but the buns were not. HARD on the outside, but soft on the inside. Also, they didn't get quite as big as I wanted.....more like mini-bun size. Won't make these again.

Best Ever Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2010
This did raise very nicely, but I wasn't too crazy about the flavor. I added some pumpkin and vanilla, so I didn't add the full cup of milk. If I make again I will use a full cup of sugar and mabye butter or chocolate chips.

Out of this World Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
4.5 stars as written, our family gave it a 5 with some small changes. First, I cut the salt down to 1 cup. I thought 1 1/2 cups would be to much and it would have been to salty. I did use the type of salt called for in the recipe. After reading some reviews, I remembered someone had used large ziploc storage bags. I can't remember which section of the store they are in, but they are Ziploc brand XL storage bags. So I used HOT water for one gallon and mixed up the salt and sugar until it dissolved and then added the other ingredients and the 2nd gallon of water. Then I placed the turkey in the bag and placed the bag in a cooler filled with ice. Then you don't have to worry about gross turkey juice in your cooler. I let sit for 2 1/2 days, then drained and patted the turkey dry. Placed in the roaster and stuffed with quartered apples and an onion. I roasted it breast-side down at 500 degrees for 30 minutes, then turned it down to 325 and roasted til done. I made gravy with the drippings using milk and flour. I DID NOT add salt and if I would have added salt to the gravy, it would have been WAY too salty. Overall a very good brine and my turkey was very juicy and flavorful. Will use it for Thanksgiving dinner.

Waffles II

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2009
This was very easy, easier than my usual waffle recipe. But it was lacking a bit in texture I am used to. I added some vanilla extract and sugar. Good for a quick recipe. I will make when I am in a hurry, but prefer my usual recipe if I have time.

Easy Garlic Broiled Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2009
3.5 stars. I used half butter, half olive oil and mabye a little more garlic. I mixed it all up and put in a 9x13 pan with the chicken and put it in the fridge. After a few hours I baked it in the oven. It was moist, but not as flavorful as I had hoped.

Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2009
I made this with a few changes. I got a package of four cheese italian sausages at Walmart clearanced out, so I used that for my sausage. Still removed from the casings and sauted with red onion and green peppers. I left out the oil, I didn't think that I needed it. Instead of tomatoes I used half a jar of sun-dried tomato pesto. Added some parmesan cheese and a little of the starchy pasta water for the sauce. Tossed with the bow-tie pasta and served. Very good.

Applesauce Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
3.5 stars for us. It took a little longer to cook and it didn't rise nice. I used the same baking powder and soda in a muffin recipe that same day and they rose fine, so I know it wasn't that. I was looking for a recipe to use up some applesauce I had canned, but for a quick bread I would probably make the Maine pumpkin bread from this site instead.

Mother's Applesauce Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
Made this with a few changes. My son wanted chocolate chip muffins, but I had applesauce to use up so I made these, with changes. I left out the cinnamon, allspice and raisins. I only had 2 cups of all-purpose flour, so I used 2 cups AP and 2 cups WW. It was pretty sweet, so if I make it again I will leave out some sugar. I ended up with 24 muffins and extra batter, so I used the extra batter to make a small loaf also.

Apple Butter Pork Loin

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
Pretty Good, I did change a few things though. I left out the sugar, water, and spices. Instead I seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and poultry seasoning. Then I only used 1 cup of juice. Covered in homemade apple butter and roasted until done. Served with roasted red potatoes.

Country Pasta with Mozzarella

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2009
I had bacon and mozzarella in the fridge, so I put them in the search and this seemed like a good recipe. As written it would be very greasy and bland. I drained some of the bacon grease and used 3 garlic cloves when it really could have used more. Also added salt and pepper, and garlic salt/powder. I had some leftover chicken in the fridge that I minced up and added. Next time I'll just make carbonara and call it good.

Chicken Alfredo Pizza

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2009
I made this mostly by the recipe, but I used store bought crust. I made the sauce first which had somewhat of a werid texture becuase of the cheese I think. I tasted ok, but it was very thick and when leftovers were re-heated, it was not saucy at all. For the chicken I sauted it in some minced garlic, butter, olive oil, and herbs(I still used pre-cooked chicken). Overall I would give it a 4. It does taste VERY diferent when you make the sauce opposed to using a jarred sauce. If you make it using a jar sauce, it isn't going to turn out as good. I have made it both ways and I was going to use jarred sauce again last night, but I realized I was out at the last minute and had to make the sauce in the recipe instead. Turned out much better!
