Blueberry Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2014
This is way too sweet. I didn't like the crumb topping--too many different flavors going on what with the blueberries, the lemon, the brown sugar topping. And I would cut way back on the sugar in the blueberries.

Extreme Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2014
I have been making this cake for several years now and it's the absolute best chocolate cake I've ever tasted. I've never tried it with coffee, though, so the next time I make it I'll try that innovation. One note, however. Rach56 should have properly attributed this recipe. If you look on the back of the Hershey's cocoa container, it is exactly the same recipe. Maybe Rach56 didn't know about this, but there it is.

Buttermilk Hush Puppies

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2013
Heaven, I'm in Heaven.....Need I say more? These are exquisite. Like others wrote, light and crunchy. I added a jalapeno pepper and can't really taste it, so next time, I think I'll stick with cayenne pepper to really kick it up a notch. Just a note, though. At 365 degrees they brown very quickly (and I didn't add sugar). I found that they didn't need to go the whole 6 minutes. If you cut into them to see if they're done, they may not be totally, but they continue to cook after being removed from the grease so don't wory too much about that. These are absolutely amazing.

Cop Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2013
I used fewer donuts than called for, but other than that did it just the way it was written. The people I made it for loved it. One man said that he wouldn't be able to eat anything sweet for the rest of the day because he wanted to remember the taste of Cop Cobbler. Another said that it was the best thing to come out of the kitchen since he could remember. Very good. Thanks for posting this.

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2012
I really liked this dip and will make it many more times. I made it just as written and it was really good. Having said that, I think the next time I make it, I'll try 1/2 C. of mayo. I can always add more in later. I didn't have fresh parmesan :-( and I think that would have made it much better. I also think that baking it in the oven would give the flavors time to meld together. Other than that, it's a keeper and a winner, unlike the Dallas Cowboys today.

Buttery Corn Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2012
Leave it to me to buck the trend. Let me first say, that this is a very good cornbread. The reason I'm giving it three stars is that it is more like a corn-cake than a corn-bread. Very sweet, light and fluffy--it's more like a dessert than a side dish for beans, if you get my meaning. So based on your personal preferences, if you like a cakey, sweet, light cornbread, this is for you. Myself, I like a denser, more corn-y, heavier "bread" type of cornbread. I can't really fault it because it's very good (excellent, in fact) for what it is, just not what I prefer.

Tomato Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2012
I didn't use mozarella as others suggested but next time I think I will. I agree with others, too, that 1/4 C. of butter is too much. Scale that back to a couple of tablespoons if you're concerned about far. Also, I forgot to add the salt and in my opinion, unless you're a real salt freak, it's not at all necessary. There is enough in the cheese and the bread crumbs and butter. Excellent with fried and breaded eggplant. I'm vegetarian and this is a wonderful keeper.

The Best Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2012
I have no clue where the "cakey" people are coming from with this recipe!!!! They are so moist and chewy--I haven't ever had an oatmeal cookie quite like them and I generally don't like oatmeal cookies. So do yourself a favor, follow the recipe exactly, and give these a try. I don't think you'll be disappointed. And, for the record, the next time I make them, I'll scale back a bit on the sugar.

Grandma's Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2012
I had the same problem as some other people in two ways--I brought it to a rolling boil and let it boil for a full minute while stirring and it turned out a little bit soupy. Also, I found it to be way too sweet--the sugar overpowered the chocolate taste. If I make it again, I'll perhaps add a bit more flour, let it boil longer, and cut the sugar in half. One reviewer said they used it as a pie filling and mine would never have served that purpose; way too soupy. Taste is good, albeit too sweet.

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
My only problem with this rating system is that I can't give these pancakes a "10". They're the best I've ever made and I haven't done anything to change them at all--just make and enjoy!!!!!

Iowa City Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2007
Sorry everybody. I agree with Phil--they were dry and crumbly and I added an extra egg, too, which stiffened the dough and I was hoping for the best. From now on, I'll go with the recipe that's on the Quaker Oats box. They're the best that I've had so far.

Coconut Curry Tofu

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2007
I love this stuff!!!!! I didn't have chili paste in the house and called around until I found an Asian market and drove 45 minutes round trip to get some. I'm like a lot of other people, though, in that you don't really need to follow the recipe in terms of the vegetables. You could pretty much use whatever you want and/or have on hand--for instance, use spinach or cabbage instead of bok choy, throw in some green beans, let your imagination guide you. Someone said that the person who submitted it didn't claim that it's an authentic Thai recipe so go crazy and be creative. I was half-way through it, though, and I realized that I wanted more coconut milk so I added a whole other can. Along with this, I adjusted the chili paste and curry powder by adding more. This is a repeater for me.

Peanut Butter Cookies VII

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2007
I doubled the recipe and when I got to about 2 1/3 C. flour, I abandoned the spoon and worked the dough with my hands. I was worried about them being too crumbly but the heat from my hands seemed to do the trick. Because of this, this would be a great recipe to do with kids.....
