Oatmeal Raisin Cookies IV

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
This is a gourmet cookie! I went with some of the other reviewers' suggestions and added a tsp. of baking soda and baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt. The reviewer who mentioned checking the expiration on the baking soda was right on! Even though I do alot of baking, my baking soda was expired. I even added chocolate chips and baked at 375 instead of 350. I made these cookies larger and watched them until they were ready to take out of the oven. It's important to let them cool before handling so they won't crumble. Thank you for a great recipe!

Whoopie Pies VIII

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
WOW! What an incredible dessert! The only thing I didn't do was add the egg whites at the end cuz my filling was already fluffy and thick. I really didn't want to mess it up! I used dark cocoa for this recipe. The cake part was so rich. This recipe will so enhance my reputation! Thank you for this awesome recipe.

Chocolate Mayo Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
Enjoyed this cake! I added pecans to the batter from my mother-in-laws trees and it was delicious with a dollop of fat-free whipped topping. It rose nicely....good recipe. No need for a boxed chocolate mix.

Peanut Butter Pie I

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
Great job Stephanie! I also needed a dessert for the church's annual Jamaica cake walk. I didn't want to go to the store to get ingredients for another dssert I had planned on making so I scrounged around to see what I had on hand. I had a graham cracker crust and used that. I had some pure peanut butter without added sugar or other additives so I used what I had on hand. The whippng cream gave it richness without being too sweet. It was fast and easy. I added milk chocolate chips on top to give it a little extra look. yum. I will definitely make this again.

Bacon Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
I am going to say there is no way to mess up this delicious recipe considering what I did to it! My husband had been asking for chicken and dumplings for a while. I had intended to go to the grocery store to get the items I needed but when I woke up, we were under a severe thunderstorm watch. I decided to improvise. First, I didn't have bacon so I sauteed the onions in 1 tablespoon butter-flavored shortening. I also chopped up celery, garlic and a carrot. If you can imagine this, I didn't have any milk or half and half either! I did have some powered milk on hand and used that along with 2 cans of cream of chicken soup and a can of whole kernel corn. I boiled a whole chicken and used some of the chicken stock from that after straining out the fat. After deboning the chicken, I added poultry seasoning, pepper, parsley and a little cumin as another reader suggested. I didn't feel like making the dumplings so I cut up pieces of a refrigerated can of biscuits I had on hand. This was quick, delicious and made a beautiful presentation with plenty of soup. I will definitely try this recipe the next time as posted. Thank you for a fabulous recipe!

Raisin Sweet Potato Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2009
Absolutely the best raisin sweet potato bread! I also added a half cup of walnuts and maybe a quarter more cup of cooked sweet potatoes. Baked for 60 minutes. Love the moistness and flavor. Will make this again for Christmas and add cranberries!

Microwave Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2009
Wonderful in the microwave! I had made a batch cooking it on the stove and it did not set right for me and had to throw it out. I tried this microwave method and it was quick, easy and delicious.

Cola Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
Super fabulous! I was out of eggs, oil and milk. I did not have a chocolate cake mix but used a yellow cake mix and added 1/2 cup of unsweetened Hershey's cocoa. I also added semi-sweet chocolate chips which I had on hand. Amazing flavor and moistness. Didn't even feel the need to frost this cake after adding the chocolate chips. Easy, fast and delicious!

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2009
YUM, YUM! What a difference in taste homemade applesauce makes! Had planned to add extra apples but found one rotten apple which had to be thrown out. While the apples were cooking, kinda eyeballed it and decided to take out some of the liquid. I'm glad I did. Should never have to buy applesauce again with this wonderful recipe.

Out of this World Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
This is my first time brining a turkey. The turkey was delicious, moist and juicy! I had a 25 lb. fresh turkey and when baking, I added onions, celery and garlic. The whole house smelled fabulous and Big Tom served his purpose well! Great recipe!

Hoppin' John

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
There was nothing bland about this delicious dish! I followed the recipe but in addition, added three chopped jalapenos, four chopped roma tomatoes, three garlic cloves and two pork chops that were sitting in the refrigerator. I used two cups of rice instead of three. I was cooking this New Year's Eve and it smelled so good, my husband and I had a bowl for dinner!

Million Dollar Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
Don't you just hate when someone changes your recipe, but in an effort to cook/bake more lowfat/sugar free this year, here are the changes I made. Baked the yellow cake mix as called for including the butter. (Could have used applesauce instead of butter to really make this low calorie.) For the topping, used lowfat cream cheese, DID NOT add confectioners sugar, added the crushed pineapple with juice, added package lowfat, sugar free vanilla pudding mix and a container of lowfat frozen whipped topping. Baked in a 9 x 13 inch pan. The cake was very good and moist and, surprisingly, my picky husband did not even notice these changes! This cake has lots of wonderful flavors with the oranges and pineapple. I will make this again!

Gooey Chocolate Icing

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2010
I didn't have confectioners sugar to frost my yellow bundt cake but I did have a can of fat-free sweetened condensed milk so I decided to use what I had on hand. I also did not have chocolate squares so I used 1/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa. I mixed this together and cooked in a double boiler. I did add 1 tbsp of butter to the mixture and cooked until it was thick (probably 30 minutes or so and stirred often so it wouldn't burn). I did not add water. This is a FABULOUS icing over a bundt cake. The chocolate icing was not too sweet which we liked and it looked so pretty. Drizzle the icing over a cooled cake while still warm as my icing was pretty thick. I will definitely make this icing again!

Irene's Barbeque Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
Fantastic! I also doubled the recipe so I could have sauce for turkey meatballs later in the week. I poured the sauce over a large pkg of chicken drumettes and baked in the oven until the chicken was done. I did not add the 1/4 cup vegetable oil to the sauce and didn't think it needed it. I also went lighter on the vinegar as recommended by others. I used brown, spicy mustard that I had on hand. We had mashed potatoes and cole slaw with this marvelous meal. This was great Irene. Thanks!

Jumbo Fluffy Walnut Apple Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
Absolutely Delicious! Light and airy. I did not add the struesel to cut down on some of the decadent calories and they were still delicious! I also only used 1 cup sugar and they were still delicious! What a great recipe to use up some of the apples I had on hand!

No Kneading Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2010
WOW! WOW! WOW! I used this recipe to make cinnamon rolls AND I have been making cinnamon rolls for over 30 years. This has to be the best recipe ever. Either that or God was good to me today and everything turned our perfectly! The rolls were light and so, so tasty! I added cinnamon water to the mix along with nuts, raisins, butter and the cinnamon/sugar mix before I rolled & cut the dough. Can't wait to try this for dinner rolls. Shannon, you are awesome!

Berdean's Cube Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2012
PERFECT!! I read all the wonderful reviews and was still somewht unconvinced that so many could be so right!! I'm a believer! This recipe will become a staple in my dinner repertoire. Followed the recipe but was wondering what to do with all the oil after frying the meat. I did take some of it out cuz it just seemed to be alot to leave in. I had some leftover beef broth from another recipe and wanted to use it up so I added that along with a sliced onion as others recommended. I also added garlic powder to the flour before dredging the meat. To the cold beef broth, however, I did add the remaining flour from dredging the meat and used the wire whisk to remove the lumps. I added this roux to the meat and onions. The smell was scrumptious and the meat was amazingly tender. The onion gravy was fabulous. I have already forwarded this recipe to my sisters! Thank you for a great recipe!

Unbelievable Rolls

Reviewed: May 20, 2012
The magic of yeast and flour (and sugar)! I will repeat what many reviewers mentioned about the lightness, fluffyness, and flavor. I used butter instead of margarine and coated my baking pan with butter. These rolls were fabulous! I also needed to add at least 1 1/2 cups of additional flour to the final kneading process due to the stickiness and the dough was still somewhat sticky, but this must be the secret as others have said. I doubled my recipe because I wanted to freeze some rolls. It was harder to work with so much dough and I kept running out of baking trays, but believe me, it was worth it. With so much dough, I made my rolls BIG! This is a wonderful recipe and there is no need to look elsewhere. I will be making these again. Thank you Sherlie for sharing this with us!

Homemade Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2013
OK ladies, here goes...I did not intentionally want to sub ingredients, but I did not have shortening, lard, or even margarine or butter! I really wanted to make these so I subbed what I had on hand....COCONUT OIL! I did put in the freezer to harden for a bit so it would not be soft or oily. It took just a little more mixing with my fingers to break it down, but my husband who is (very) Mexican could not tell the difference. There really was no difference in taste and I actually liked the taste better. The only thing I would do next time is add just a tad more salt. My tortillas were soft, pliable and easy to handle. I did use 1/2 CUP of the coconut oil because that is usually what I add when I have made tortillas before. I also sprinkle flour on my acrylic cutting board where I make tortillas so they will not stick. This is THE BEST recipe for homemade flour tortillas that I have found and better than my previous recipe. I will be making this recipe again and again (with my coconut oil sub I believe). Thanks LaDonna!
