Extreme Banana Nut Bread 'EBNB'

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
Yikes. I have been making this recipe for three years now and I just discovered I had not yet reviewed it. This IS, by far, the best recipe ever for Banana Nut Bread. I have been baking for years and I don't dish out 5 stars for so-so recipes. For those of you who did not like it, you must have done something wrong- this is worthy of more than 5 stars in my opinion and any other person I know that has tried it feels the same. If you have a problem with darkening of the tops of the loaves, place a sheet of foil over the two loaves about 15 min before it is finished baking. It also makes great tea sandwiches by cutting small thin squares of EBNB, spread with mixed cream cheese and confect. sugar. Then place very thin slices of strawberry between two slices of EBNB that you have put the spread on. Beautiful and classy presentation, as well as delicious...

Reuben Sandwich II

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
This is the delicious recipe we use at home. We drain the sauerkraut and place it in a small saucepan on low which warms it as well as evaporates any juice left after draining it. Another taste treat for this Reuben is to try honey mustard in place of the 1000 island or regular mustard. This is a great sandwich as a stand alone dinner or lunch...Thanks much

Spanish Rice I

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
This reminds me of my husband's spanish rice. He's Italian. When we have leftover made-from-scratch spaghetti sauce he adds some Taco seasoning, red & orange bell peppers-chopped and MIN--- Rice. It is wonderful. I love it better than any I have ever had at a restaurant or out of a box. Good way of using up extra pasta sauce too...

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007
If I could rate this recipe for more stars- the poster would get it. I have been making this recipe now and shared it with a couple of friends. It is simply wonderful. I have used: dried currants, dried blueberries/walnuts, and dried cherry and walnut variations. I looked no further after finding this recipe. It is easy, versatile and foolproof. I am very fussy so this is the one to make! It is perfect...

Vickie's Beer Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007
Excellent! My husband and I both love to cook and therefore are pretty critical- I did look at the other reviews and added a bit more of sugar. I also included a pinch of paprika, dried parsley, garlic powder and about a 1/4 cup of parmesean cheese. Also, I used about 1/2 the amount of butter. We served it with vegetable beef stew and it was great. Thank you for this keeper...

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2007
This is not only a wonderfully delicious pie but it also looks very pretty. My family and I enjoy it very much and appreciate that it is in no way a "runny" pie filling. I have also added a 1/4 cup of chopped pecans to the mixture before pouring over the pie- very yummy!

Sour Cream Cut-Outs

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
I have searched for many years to find a delicious cut-out recipe worthy of the time and $ invested. THIS IS IT! It must be the cake flour and the sour cream. The cookies looked like they were purchased at a high-end bakery. I am an avid baker and I can not thank you enough for this treasure! Thank you Patty for sharing this gem of a cut-out cookie recipe...

Sweet and Sour Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
This was delightful! I must admit that we had no ketchup on hand, just my husband and I who do not use ketchup. However, I did use the same amount of a mild BBQ sauce in place of that. It turned out spectacular! We used in on coconut shrimp my husband made and I would highly recommend it for dipping BBQ chicken, or any other grilled meat/s. Super easy, super good and very impressive. I will never buy bottled S&S sauce again, I am sure you could even substitute plum jelly in place of the ketchup for an instant plum sauce. We make our own eggrolls and pan fried dumplings, this sauce would work very well with those. This is a true keeper, thank you for sharing...

Sourdough Bread I

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
Thank you for such a wonderful recipe. I followed your directions exactly and came up with two beautiful loaves of bread. The bread is absolutely delicious. I need look no further. I can not imagine improving upon this one. I did, of course, use your sourdough starter, on this site as well. Perfect combination! My husband and I both love to cook and bake and we thought this recipe was truly outstanding, simplicity and all you can ask for. You truly deserve every star that comes your way. Once again, we thank you for sharing...

Sourdough Starter I

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
Thanks for the great starter Becky. The first two or three days, I thought it looked rather blah in color and it did not smell like bread by any means. On the fifth day when I poured out 1 cup to add to your SD recipe on this site I changed my mind. I mixed the ingredients, including the starter, in the evening. During the night I could smell the dough throughout the house. A wonderful smell. I followed your directions for the starter and the bread exactly as you posted them. I made two wonderful loaves of SD bread, thanks to you. This is a true keeper. Very impressive results. Once again, thank you for sharing...

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
This was truly delicious. What a taste treat, the flavor was unique yet something anyone would love. My husband and I both love to cook. I followed the recipe as posted except for the tomato sauce and the red wine vinegar. I used what I had on hand, tomato paste and apple cider vinegar in place of those two ingredients. It is the best grilled shrimp we have ever eaten and we have tried quite a few including restaurant varieties. The color was exquisite, a beautiful presentation I would be proud to serve guests. If you are fussy, as we are, this will become one of your favorites. Thank you for sharing with us, you earned 5+ stars in our opinion.

Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2010
As of trying this recipe today it is now my favorite frosting! I followed the recipe as posted except for adding 3/4 cup granulated sugar as opposed to 1 full cup and it was perfectly sweet. The frosting was so easy to work with, even spreading on a bundt cake. I had no problem at all with the frosting being "runny". I am not sure why that would happen. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe...

Chicken Wild Rice Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
We made this soup the other night and my husband ate 3 bowls, after that he mentioned he could really eat a fourth bowl since it was so delicious. This is not likely for him to go on like that. I did add one cup of white rice to the recipe, along with more carrots. I also cut back on the Sherry and used 1 tablespoon + 1 tsp (like I do for my cream of Mushroom soup). I kept some of the hot broth separate and then opted to add cornstarch mixed with cold water in place of the flour/butter roux. I then added it back to the soup pot. It thickened beautifully. Not real thick, just right. All other ingredients were followed as posted. This soup has a fine gourmet essence about it. We are very particular about what sounds good to us and we make lots of soups from scratch and this has now become one of our favorites. Thank you for sharing this keeper with us. It also reheats the next day and tastes just as wonderful...Thank You Sue!

Grandma's Sour Cream Pound Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2007
I love to bake and this recipe is very good. However, I did add an extra tsp of vanilla extract and baked it at 325 for 1 hr and 10 min as others suggested. The cake turned out picture-perfect. I would not consider this a stand-alone cake. It is so rich in butter that I believe the addition of a fruit on top of a slice would compliment the cake. A very good recipe but extremely rich. I could only eat a small slice since it was very filling. I gave it four stars because I modified the recipe a bit.

Cathy's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2008
I am an avid baker and sour cream in this recipe peaked my interest. I followed it exactly like the recipe posted, in fact, it looked exactly like the posted photo since I baked it in a bundt pan. Although all ingredients were well mixed, this bread had areas of baking soda taste, which was not too tasteful. I will stick with my favorite, EBNB, on this site. Sorry but I should have kept with EBNB...

Peach Raspberry Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
I am an avid baker and have been for quite some time. I am rating this recipe two stars because I followed the directions and ingredients to a "T". My mistake is that I should have listened to my instincts when it came to the Baking Powder. I thought Two Tablespoons would be too much. It was. Sorry I could not have rated it better, I am entertaining the thought of trying the recipe again with TWO teaspoons of Baking Powder, or, looking for another recipe.
