Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2009
We usually get bugs in our pancake mixes before we use it all up so I was looking for a recipe that had everthing I always have on hand. I've made this several times and have never had the problems of some people with them being flat. I think the key is to have fresh self rizing flour or baking powder and let them sit for a little bit before you use the batter to let the baking powder activiate. We love this recipe, infact I usually end up doubling it and having left overs for the next morning.

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
Great texture. Just a little to spicy once cooked so I would add one or the other of the peppers. We didn't have a problem with it being to sweet, I checked on our regular store bought sauce and sugar is the second ingredient which surprised me.

Spicy BBQ Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
We unfortunately didn't get to grill our chicken we ran out of propane. I didn't cut my onions up enough and they were big chunks in the sauce. All in all it was great, the sauce has quite a sit up and pay attention flavor to it but once you cook it with your chicken it it simmers down a little. My husband hates vinegar so I put probably about 2 tablespoons of cider vinager in and I really didn't miss it.

Roasted Red Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
I've made this twice in the last week. The first time I did not like it it was to bland but we already committed to take it to another party. Both times I used 1/2 cup of mayo and 1/2 cup of sour cream like many of the other recipes suggested but what changed it to a five star the last time I used the correct amount of salt and then unbeknowsnt to me my husband who was helping put some salt on the potatoes before roasting and would put a few grinds in everytime he mixed it up. We are not big salt fans around our house that is why I only put a pinch in the first time but this recipe deffinetly needs the salt to work. I also put more bacon in both times I made the recipe but that was more of our own prefrence.

Texas Glazed Pecans

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
These were incredibly easy. I thought that they would be very sticky, and stick to the pan and everything else. I had no problems while they were baking, but they did stick a little after they cooled but they were sitting in a pool of the coating. They were a christmas favorite this year.

Egg Noodles

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2010
These are super easy! I double the recipe and freeze what I don't use for next time. Now all I need is a noodle drying rack.

Mexican Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2010
Yumm. I put green chilies in the cornbread like someone suggested and thought it was great. I only used one box of Jiffy mix and wish I would have used two like many people said. I also put refried beans in the bottom of my pan to streatch the meal. Great Dinner.

Jen's Heavenly Egg Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
I loved it. We don't use dijon very often but I used spicy brown mustard, it turned out great and the specs of mustard really gave it some visual appeal as well.

Spicy Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2010
This recipe is excellent! I thought it was salty like many of the reviewers said. I used 1 tablespoon of extra course like the kind you get for salt grinders and mixed everthing in my morter and pestle I think I would cut the salt in half next time. I'm still rating it 5 stars because I really think this recipe is that good. Even with it being salty we still ate them all. They are also great cold left overs or on a salad.

Homemade Gumdrops

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2010
These are a great little candy. Just like gumdrops. Due to some of the reviews saying they were sugary I was worried that all the sugar would not disolve when I boiled the mixture. I made it just like stated and had no problems. I'm not sure what they ment by sugary but these are gumdrops they are not ment to be healthy. I have also left these out on the counter for a week now in air tight conatiners and they are as fresh as the day I made them.

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2011
I screwed up and didn't read the directions closely enough and added the herbs to the bread. Just as I was about to add the salt to the dough I looked at the recipe again and saw what I did wrong. That being said I didn't think it made a big difference. My husband said it wasn't bad for buisquick which is a huge compliment.

CopyCat Starbucks Classic Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2011
I had to make this lactose free so I used lactose free whole milk instead of half and half and margerine. While I think it would be even better with the richness of half and half and butter it was very good with the changes I made.

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2011
These are The Pancake recipe. We really loved it. Great pancake very tender but not airy. Mine also rose wonderfully. Defintely worth buying the quart of Buttermilk to make them right.

Roasted Okra

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2011
I like Okra, and I hate black pepper but I made this recipe as stated and I L-O-V-E it. We will be growing Okra in our garden this year and this is so fast we will be going to it time and again.

French Onion Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
I thought this soup was great. Due to my own preferences I used asiago bread and provolone cheese. I didn't do it this time but I like floating croutons instead of a whole slice of bread it makes it easier to eat.

Wonderful. I was in a hurry so I ran the banana and the apple through the food processor while the apple was pretty big chunks it was still great.

Corned Beef and Cabbage

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
This is my go to recipe for corned beef. It was great. I did cook my 3 1/2 lb roast beef on low for 9 hours and it was fork tender. I didn't add the cabbage until the last hour and it was plenty tender.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
Some people have problems with the filling staying in the rolls, I melted the butter and poured it over the dough then added the sugar and cinnamon mix and smoothed it out. It worked out well and I had no problems with in oozing out. I've already got plans to make them again. The are easier to make than they look.
