Apple Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2001
This recipe was extremely simple to prepare and easy to cook. Not only was it a breeze to make, but the best thing was that it was a delight to eat. I will certainly make this again!

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!

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!

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!

Cream Cheese Pound Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2012
I am getting ready to make a birthday cake for my mom, who is turning 65 in a couple of weeks. I needed a cake that had a great, simple, clean flavor and a nice, tight crumb for decorating. I decided to make this recipe exactly as written the first time around, and I wasn't disappointed. I couldn't even wait for the thing to cool off completely before nibbling at the crunchy brown top... sooo good. I know for my own personal tastes, this is money. But I will take some other bakers' recommendations and reduce the sugar to 2 1/2 cups next time. This recipe has endless possibilities for flavor combinations - I can't wait to play around with it! This is definitely the cake for my mom's birthday, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that it's a cake that will have its own place in my everyday recipe collection as well. Great recipe!

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!

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!!

Banoffee

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2008
While living in Northern Ireland, I would eat this like there was no tomorrow whenever my mother-in-law would make it. Since my in-laws are in town visiting, I wanted to try this out and see how it was received. I slacked a bit on the condensed milk - I substituted (as others have done) the milk with Dulce de Leche, which is easy to find in any store in Texas where I now live. My only complaint about my dish was that the bananas in the store were not as ripe as they should have been for this dish. I topped it with whipped cream and finely chopped pecans. My mother-in-law seemed to really love it, which made me very happy. I am glad I came across this recipe! Thanks for sharing!

Very easy and very tasty. Filled them with Nutella and bananas and topped with a drizzle of honey and sliced banana. Very impressive!

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!

Cracked Sugar Cookies I

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!

Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie

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

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.

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.

Cinnamon Ice Cream

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2010
I made two batches of this. The first batch was the standard recipe. The second batch, I used 3 egg yolks (eliminated the whites) and used apple pie spice in place of cinnamon (I'd used all the cinnamon I had in the first batch!). I also folded in some chopped pecans. This stuff was really amazing! It goes super well with Grandma Ople's apple pie from this site - the pie doesn't have cinnamon, and the ice cream compliments the pie PERFECTLY!

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!

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.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
Delicious! I read a recommendation on another review that suggested to mix the ingredients by hand. So I put away my KitchenAid and worked up a sweat creaming and stirring and blending. I used a 1/2 tablespoon cookie scoop and coated the little balls in the cinnamon sugar mixture using a Ziploc bag (4 at a time, using a 1qt bag). I baked each batch *exactly* 9 minutes, and they came out beautifully! I love that gorgeous cracked top and the wonderful soft texture. I stored the majority of the cookies in my cookie jar with a slice of bread to keep them soft, and on the second day, they were still melt-in-your-mouth!
