Home-Style Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2008
When I made the sauce it was SO good. After cooking the potatoes the flour in the sauce overpowered the taste. I was embarrassed because I made these for a family dinner and they turned out gross. If I could have the sauce taste the way it did when I first cooked it this would have been a 5 star recipe easily. where did I go wrong? Suggestions?

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2008
YUM!!! These are money makers baby! I brought them to work and got rave reviews. I made the cinnamon rolls the night before and also the frosting and pulled them both out of the fridge 1/2 hr before baking. I found that putting the rolls in the fridge the night before helped the butter harden in the rolls and when I cooked them I had no problem with the cinnamon/brown sugar filling running out the bottom. They were perfect and oh so gooey. I also didn't use a bread maker. Easily done without, just look at other reviews. I also didn't put the frosting on until they were just warm to the touch, but the pan was still hot. That way most of the frosting stayed right on the cinnamon rolls and didn't melt off the sides. I also doubled the frosting, you have to! These are just as good heated up in the microwave the next day.

Snickerdoodle Cake I

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
AMAZING!!! I used butter instead of shortening and that definately made it better! I added 1 tsp of cinnamon to the batter, and I also doubled the cinnamon topping and put half of it in middle of the cake then covered it with the rest of the batter. Also, with the second half of the topping I added about 1 TBSP of flour, 2 TBPS of brown sugar and then cut in 2 TBSP of room temp butter until it resembeled more of a crumbly mixture and sprinkled that on top. HOLY COW!!! It made a perfect strussel topping! I also followed other reviewers suggestions and drizzeled 1/2 a stick of melted butter over the top while it was still warm. Everyone raved over this!!! Thanx for the great recipe!

Burnt Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2008
I personally loved it! Very interesting and I couldn't eat it alone, it was too rich but on top of a fudge brownie it would be great. My husband said it was too buttery but I give it 5 stars for uniqueness?!

Cake Mixes from Scratch and Variations

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2008
I don't know about anyone else, but when I tried this I ended up with crumbly cornbread texture cupcakes that tasted like sugar cookies. I hate to say it, but ewwww.

World's Best Potato Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
This turned out awesome! After reading other reviews I made a few adjustments. First off, people complained that it was too "oniony" so I only used half a walla onion and 3 green onions. People also complained that it was too sweet so I didn't use the entire 1/2 cup sugar, more like 1/3 cup, maybe a tad bit more. I also used two tsp cornstarch and let it cool COMPLETELY before I added the mayo. I used 10 red potatoes instead of russet ones. I also added 4 slices cooked chopped bacon when tossing potatoes with celery and onions. I then added 1/2 cup sweet relish to the dressing before tossing with potatoes. With these modifications this potato salad is to die for! I brought it to a family party and it was gone in a flash. I got told that I was now the new potato salad maker for all get togethers:)THANX FOR THIS RECIPE!!!

Cupcake Graveyard

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2007
Loved this recipe and it turned out so cute but when i covered them and took them to work the cookies soaked up the moisture of the cupcakes and they became soft an all the tombstones broke and fell over! I don't know if you can just not cover them or if you should just not put the cookies in until day you are going to serve them. That is the only reason I give this only 3 stars.

Cheese and Bacon-Stuffed Pasta Shells

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2007
This recipe was great, but needed a couple of changes. I added about a 1/4 lb of hamburger to bacon mixture and that turned out well, also gave me more shells to fill. With the shells, I would cook them for atleast 10 min instead of eight. They weren't all the way done and after baking they were hard on the edges. Also I wasn't too big of a fan of the tomato puree. Not too much flavor. I think next time I will just use ragu or prego sauce of my choice for extra flavor. Overall this recipe was pretty good!

Banana-Dulce de Leche Pie (Banana-Caramel Pie)

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2007
So the final product wasn't too bad, but making it became a disaster! I followed the directions and put the condensed milk in a sauce pan and filled it with water half way up the can and boiled it for 3 hrs...well I ended up with half a can of dark carmel (over cooked) and half a can condensed milk. I tried putting it all in a saucepan and mixing it all together and that worked somewhat. It was burned in some places, but I still served it! Everyone said it tasted fine, but it could have been better, my suggestion...boil can in water with can completely submerged, and only boil for 2-2and 1/2 hrs. That might work better.
