Sooo tasty and what a great texture. It went very well with a maple sponge cake I made.

Texas Okra Gumbo

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2007
Very good and very filling. I've made this many times and have tried adding different ingredients each time, my favorite one being andouille sausage. It's very versatile and best of all, easy and fast to prepare. Thanks for sharing this one!

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
This was my first attempt at homemade carrot cake. I always thought it was going to be a very complicated process, but this was so easy... Probably my oven but these cakes were done in about 40 minutes. The result was a moist and very flavorful cake that I will be making again and again!

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2007
I LOVE this pie. I usually make this exactly as directed. Pouring the yummy liquid on the top not only gives you a beautiful looking pie, but the crust tastes absolutely wonderful (coming from a person who typically will eat everything BUT the crust!). I actually prefer no cinnamon in this pie, but will oftentimes make my own cinnamon ice cream (recipe is on this site), and it goes perfectly together! I will make this pie even when apples aren't in season - it's totally worth it. Thanks for sharing!

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: May 26, 2007
This was surprisingly easy to make. But it certainly tastes like something I spent all day making. This is by far the best homemade pie I have ever made - this recipe is phenomenal! Thank you for sharing!

Chocolate Meringue Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2005
FANTASTIC! I do Weight Watchers, and have been on program for two years now, and whenever I crave something sweet, I would usually go out and spend about $5 on a box of Miss Meringues cookies. I found this recipe and I haven't bought a box since. They are so wonderfully chocolatey and even without the additional chocolate chips (which I omitted the first time I made them and included the second time), they are still wonderful. The best part is that I can control what goes into them to make them sugar-free (by substituting Splenda), and I can have enough to satisfy myself for very few points. Thank you very much for sharing this great recipe!

Mark's English Sausage Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2005
My husband is from Northern Ireland and can have sausage rolls only when he visits home (about once a year). So needless to say, he was totally stoked about the idea that I could make these at home. I surprised him with them one day when he got home from work, and he was really pleased. Also, since I'm making them, I control the ingredients and can tailor them to my way of eating to make them lower in fat/calories. Thanks! Jules

Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2005
I thought this pie was fantastic. Surprisingly easy to make (this was the first from-scratch lemon meringue pie I've made), and I thought it tasted great. Thanks for the recipe! Jules

Spaghetti Carbonara II

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2010
This was surprisingly easy to make. I've heard horror stories (and even tasted a few) about the eggs going scrambledy... But this was a very tasty dish that my family enjoyed.

Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2006
I made this cornbread in a hurry to go with a pot of stew, and I was worried because there are so many good cornbread recipes. This is my new favorite. It's so easy to make and the reward is wonderful, sweet cornbread. The only change I made was to substitute melted butter for the oil, but that's just because I didn't have oil on hand. It was wonderful. No more box mixes for me!

Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2007
This was really, really great. It was a lot easier to make than I would ever have expected. I don't care much for vanilla so I substituted maple flavoring and I didn't have enough corn syrup so I used a previous poster's suggestion and used honey instead. My 6 year old and I are probably going to finish it and not have any left for DH when he gets home from work! Thanks for the recipe!

Cracked Sugar Cookies I

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2009
Exactly what I was craving in a sugar cookie. I was up at 1am making these cookies to satisfy my sweet tooth. They were very easy to make and very tasty!

Spinach Noodles

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2010
ended up adding a load more flour but think it was because I didnt allow the spinach to drain fully. Very nice.

Dark Chocolate Cake II

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2009
I had a serious chocolate craving... just to give you an idea of how desperate I was for something chocolatey, it's 1am where I am. I don't have any butter on hand which renders my other chocolate cake recipe useless, so I did some browsing and came across this one. No butter. Great reviews. First off, the batter was an indication that this cake was going to be great. I actually reserved a bit and prepared a little ramekin I have and made a single serving microwave cake while the big ones baked in the oven. Wonderfully moist and sweet, very chocolatey. I did follow others' advice to add more cocoa powder (used a little more than a cup) and some more sugar (used about 1 1/4 cup). I made 2 cakes (9" round pans) - one for me and one for a neighbor. I dusted mine with some simple powdered sugar for a clean and simple look. And after 3 - yes, THREE - pieces, I had to log on to review this before I slipped into a chocolate coma. Oh, and I don't really have to worry about cleaning up because the one bowl thing is brilliant. Great recipe - this will be replacing my current chocolate cake recipe. Thanks for sharing.

Sweet Potato Bread I

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
Very tasty. I'll definitely be making this again to use any leftover sweet potatoes. :-) I had to modify it a bit because I didn't have oil. I used 1/2 cup butter flavored Crisco, and it still came out perfectly.

Joey's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2010
I thought these were really great. They had a very nice flavor and were easy to make. I used Peter Pan honey roasted peanut butter (it's what I had on hand), and they turned out very well. My 2 year old ate 5 out of the 12 cookies from the first batch... So they definitely have his approval. :-)

Delicious Egg Salad for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
I had to come back here and edit my previous review... Just have to add that I made this again, but this time, I made my own mayonnaise, too. Super terrific yummy great! Love this recipe!! I really loved this and found it a great way to kill the inexplicable egg salad craving I've been having lately (I hate eggs!). Only thing I did was add some bacon pieces to the leftovers. Very nice with or without the bacon. :) Thanks for sharing!

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2007
This was so much easier to make than I could ever have imagined. After coming home late from work one night and having two hungry mouths to feed (husband and 6 year old son), I was looking for something quick and easy but very tasty. My husband is from Northern Ireland, and I thought this would be a great dish to try on him. He ate a large first helping and then went back for seconds! This is great! I'm looking forward to trying it again!!

Family-Style French Toast

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2007
VERY good! I read someone's recommendation to use sliced apples in the bottom as well, so I sliced some granny smith apples very thin and placed in the bottom of the baking dish along with the butter and brown sugar. This had a perfect texture - not to dry and not too soggy. There was enough sweetness that it didn't need any syrup, but I used a wee bit anyway. :-D I will be making this again and again, and I can't wait to have company over for breakfast so I can try this out on them! Julie
