Honey Wheat Bread I

Reviewed: May 25, 2008
I am SO glad I tried this recipe! The only change I made was that I used 1 1/2 c whole wheat flour (I ran out) but it was still wonderfully moist and browned nicely. Thanks for the keeper :-D

OREO® and Fudge Ice Cream Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2008
I just now served this to my husband for his 28th birthday and he said, " This is better than Carvel, Baskin Robins, and Dairy Queen!" (Even after a big steak dinner he still had seconds on his cake!) The only changes I made were to use Oreos, Pudding, and Hot Fudge that had mint in them (hubby's fav). I only ended up using 9 ice cream bars though, since it was just us two. This cake was perfect!

Cracked Sugar Cookies I

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2008
I made these 2 days ago and they are now gone! (I'm actually going to make some more tomorrow to take on a road trip.) I took the advice of others and rolled 1/2 of them in some cinn./sugar but even the ones I left plain were delicious! I know it's tough but resist the urge to flatten them, they do it on their own and it's amazing! Great "cracked" look and wonderful flavor. I will use this recipe from now on-I'm thinking of decreasing the sugar and adding mini choc. chips next time! Thanks :-D

Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
This frosting is AMAZING!! Being 7 months pregnant I have been craving chocolate and this frosting, paired with a homemade chocolate cake recipe from this site, has definitely hit the spot! (My baby will be doing cartwheels haha). I used double butter, milk, and chocolate, but kept the conf. sugar the same. I did add a couple shakes of powdered french vanilla creamer too. All in all, there was plenty to spread on my double layer round cake and some left that I think I will spread between double chocolate chip cookies...when I make them. I like this recipe because the frosting is light, easy to work with, and resembles chocolate mousse! I would definitely feel confident serving this frosting with a dessert for dinner guests. Thanks for the keeper!

Cake Mixes from Scratch and Variations

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
I made the chocolate version of this cake because, at 7 months pregnant, I have been craving chocolate cake and was NOT disappointed! I took the advice of others and used veg. oil instead of shortening and sifted the flour and other dry ingredients twice. I also tossed in some instant vanilla pudding to the mix just to see what it would do. (I know store bought cakes advertise putting pudding mix in their batter so I figured, "why not?") This cake is my pride and joy! I have never baked a cake from scratch but, once paired with the Creamy Chocolate Frosting from this site and a glass of ice cold milk, I feel confident serving it to others. It will take a dire situation to push me to buy boxed cake mix again! I can't wait to try other variations of this recipe!

Easy Vegetarian Red Beans Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2010
I have made this twice and both times it's been great! We have been using beans in place of meat to save on the grocery bill and honestly, we don't miss the ground beef in the recipe! I love that the two of us can eat off of it for a few days then freeze the rest for later in the month for a quick lunch/dinner and it thaws just fine. Thanks! Changes: Omit Gruyere Cheese- topped with Mozzarella, soaked and boiled kidney beans instead of canned, 8 oz container of cottage cheese mixed with pasta sauce to layer with as well

Candied Carrots

Reviewed: May 9, 2008
We had some dinner guests over and I decided to give this recipe a first try (risky right?) but I'm so glad I did. They turned out wonderful and I had to give out the recipe before they left.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2010
Delicious!! I wasn't able to get mine to rise as much as I would have liked (I think that was my error in rolling them to thin or something-not the recipe itself), but the dough was very soft and easy to work with and the biscuits were very fluffy. :-D

Mini Meatloaves

Reviewed: May 9, 2008
I mixed and matched ingredients of this recipe with the Brown Sugar Meatloaf recipe also on this site and the final product was amazing! Even my husband admitted they were cute. The only downside I found to preparing them in a muffin pan was that the leftover grease was a little yucky. Thanks for the great idea though!

Mom's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2008
These cookies were amazing! I discovered I was out of vanilla extract and only had 1/2 the needed butter but they still turned out moist. The cook time was tricky, I think I may have kept them in too long because after they cooled they became more crunchy than I like, but a glass of cold milk easily solves that. I will continue experimenting with wonderful this recipe...thanks! :-D

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2009
This was phenomenal! I didn't really follow the exact measurements for each ingredient, just looked at the list and added a splash and a dash here and there. The hubby said it was "awesome" and was sad that fish doesn't seem to keep well overnight once cooked :-( (I served this with mashed sweet potatoes and steamed broccoli/squash. It looked great on the plate and tasted even better!) Thanks so much!

Overnight Cinnamon Rolls I

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2010
These are amazing! My husband raves every time he eats one. "They taste like Cinnabun..no, better!" These will become a signature in our home. The only change I made was to proof the yeast in the warm milk with a pinch of sugar before adding it to the flour and other ingredients. (I wanted to make sure with all the flour being used that the milk wasn't going to be too hot for the yeast to activate.) Thanks so much!

Crunchy Tuna Turnovers

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2007
My husband and I absolutely loved these! I'm thinking of trying this same idea with ham and cheese and other deli meats...you have your sandwhich and your "side" of chips all in one! The only change I made was accidental! (I had canned olives on hand and they turned out to have jalapeno in them..which added some more flavor) One thing my husband did mention is that he liked these better the next day slightly warmed.(we took them on a picnic)"There's just something about "hot" tuna that doesn't seem right," he said..so don't worry they're still good the next day! Thanks for the recipe :-D

Tuna Noodle Supreme

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2007
As with most recipes on this site I took the advice of some other reviewers and added 1 cup of frozen broccoli and 1 cup chopped brussels(both cooked) as well as some Season All, Garlic Powder, and Old Bay (for seafood)spices. I also uncovered the dish and added a cup of shredded Cheddar cheese the last 5 minutes. (this made the noodles crunchy on the top which I like) The end result was WONDERFUL! It was very creamy and filling. I will definitely add this one to my recipe box. Thanks!

Best Ever Corn Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2007
My husband took one bite of these muffins and didn't stop raving until dinner was over! "That's what cornbread should taste like," he said. :-D The only modifications I made were cutting down the butter (2 tbs. b/c I ran out!)and sugar (4 tbs.) and milk(1/4 c) because I added a small can of cream corn. I also used 1 1/4 C Jiffy mix and 2/3 Corn meal, so it would taste more like cornbread than cake. This was a great recipe and I'm excited to try adding other ingredients to it. (My husband suggested chocolate chips, we'll see how it goes)Thanks so much!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2007
My husband and I really loved this recipe! I used chicken drumsticks on the bone and once cooked pulled the meat and returned it back to the crockpot. I served the meat and sauce over cornbread, very yummy! (I did add some more ketchup and a little hot sauce.)Thanks :-D

Cheeseburger Pepper Cups

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2007
This was delicious! I only had 2 peppers but left the portions the same so I'll make this again for lunch soon! I added some diced tomato, sliced mushroom, and black olive to the skillet I found it difficult to mix all the ingredients thoroughly in the skillet so I transfered it to a mixing bowl which helped. Other than that everything was great...and very tasty! Thanks :-D

Chocolate Chip Orange Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2010
Wow! These were great! I did make a few changes, basically because of what I had on hand: I didn't have zucchini so I subbed with shredded apples, Used applesauce instead of oil, 2 eggs, no nuts, and added some fresh squeeze orange juice...and when prepping I blended the dry with the wet then folded in the shredded apple, chocolate chips, and orange zest. I made 26 cupcakes instead of bread. Just sprayed muffin tins w/ nonstick spray and baked about 15 minutes. DELICIOUS!

Golden Crescent Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
Awesome! I made half of them into crescent rolls and the other half into mini cinnamon rolls. Both are delicious right out of the oven.
