Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
I don't have a breadmaker and this still turned out pretty tasty. I would make these again for friends and family.

Easy OREO Truffles

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
These were really good. I crushed the Oreos in the food processor and then I added the cream cheese to the processor. I then scooped, rolled the truffles, and placed them in the freezer for about 20 minutes. After that I melted the chocolate in the microwave but I don't think it was warm enough because I had trouble evenly coating the truffles. Other than that they tasted pretty good.

Chocolate Mint Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2011
I followed the recipe to a "T" and these turned out great. I let the batter sit overnight which I think made the difference. I also used a cookie scoop to portion the cookies, then rolled the cookies in my hand and flattened the cookie slightly. The cookies only needed 8 minutes to bake.

Divine Hard-Boiled Eggs

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2011
Solid recipe. I used extra large eggs and them sit for 17 minutes. I also didn't wait to peel the eggs. I peeled them after they sat in the cold water for 10 minutes or so.

Chocolate Zucchini Bread I

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2010
These are pretty good. I used mini semi-sweet chocolate chips. The recipe makes about 24 regular muffins. The baking time is about 17-18 minutes. These are better the next day. Enjoy!

Greg's Southern Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
Wow! These are the lightest fluffiest biscuits I have had in a long time. I didn't have lard so I used all butter. The butter was not frozen but I did add it to the flour mixture right from the fridge. I also added 1 tbs of sugar (full recipe). I made the biscuits quite thick and I was only able to make 6 full size biscuits. I did have a little dough leftover which made a small biscuit. The biscuits onlyneed about 11 minutes to cook. Don't skip the buttermilk, I think it really makes the difference.

Caramel Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2010
Interesting dessert. Cook this in a 8X8 pan. I used a 1/2 cup of chopped cashews instead of walnuts. I also mixed the cashews and the morsels in a bag before adding it to the oatmeal crust. I'm not sure if I would add nuts again; you can barely taste them in the bar.

Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2010
This was my first successful attempt at making a pie crust. The flavor and texture were great. A few tricks to consider: first add the flour, sugar, and salt to a food processor. Pulse it until thoroughly mixed. Then add the shortening; try to evenly distribute the shortening when putting it in the processor. Pulse it a few times until crumbly (not long). Transfer mixture to a a large bowl and add the egg and water mixture. Mix with hands. Split the dough and put in the fridge overnight. The next day, roll the crust on a lightly floured surface.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2010
I made a few adjustments to the recipe and they are as follows: I cooked the apples in the butter, water, sugar mixture until almost tender. Next time I think I will reduce the liquid mixture and then cook the apples. I also added a few a shakes of cinnamon. I will make this again in the future. Update: I made this again and made a few alternations. I melted the butter and then added the flour. I let that cook for 5 or so minutes then added the brown and white sugar. I then added the water, let it reduce and thicken slightly. I think added the apples and cooked them to almost tender. I also preheated the oven to 375F and cooked the pie for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes I turned the oven to 350 and let the pie cook for another 35 minutes. Update 2: I melted the butter and added 3 heaping tablespoons of flour. I cooked the mixture for 5 or so minutes, stirring constantly. I then added 1/2 cup plus 2 tbs of brown sugar, 1/2 cup plus 2 tbs of brown sugar. Mixture will form a paste. I then added 2 tablespoons of water. I brought the mixture to a boil, lowered the heat and continued until the mixture became syrup/thick. I also added the apples and cooked until the mixture was thick again (5 or so minutes). I also added 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and 2 dashes of nutmeg. I baked the pie at 425 for 15 minutes, lowered the temperature to 350 and baked for 40 minutes. Allowed the pie to cool for 15 minutes.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
I used ground turkey as a substitute for the ground beef. First I cooked the bell pepper and onions in a little bit of olive oil. I then removed the mixture, added a little more olive oil and cooked the turkey. Once the turkey was almost cooked I added the rest of the ingredients. I also added a little more brown sugar than what the recipe called for.

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2010
I prefer this zucchini bread than any other zucchini bread. I wouldn't change a thing. I did have a hard time getting the bread to cook all of the way through but I will keep working at it. Update: I halved the recipe and here are a few tips. 1) if you can't find zucchini grate 2 italian squash with a box grater, 2) use about a cup and half of shredded italian squash, 3) use 2 eggs, 4) thaw frozen blueberries 5) use 1.5 cups of blueberries and 6) bake in a 9X5 metal loaf pan for 48-50 minutes. Enjoy warmed with butter...divine!

Holiday Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2010
I used rotisserie chicken for this recipe and instead of mayo I used Miracle Whip. I would certainly make this again. Update: It's much better the next day.

Pat's Baked Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2010
I truly love baked beans. My mom has an incredible recipe that I have tried to replicate and this recipe comes pretty close. I did alter the beans in the recipe. I used two 28oz cans of bushed baked beans and one 16oz can of Northern beans which I drained. I also nixed the ketchup. I like the onion flavor so I also added more than what the recipe called for. Update: These are even the better the next day! When I make half of the recipe I use about 1/3 cup of brown sugar.

Gobble Up Granola Snacks

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2010
These are terrific! I love granola bars and these beat the box granola bars. I used honey instead of corn syrup and dried cranberries instead of reasons. Try these you'll like them.

Best of the Best Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: May 22, 2010
Good recipe. I halved the recipe and made 6 regular muffins. They only needed to be in the oven for 21 minutes. I like my muffins a little on the sweet side, so, I next time I will ensure my blueberries are relatively sweet.

Pretzel Turtles

Reviewed: May 1, 2010
This recipe couldn't be any easier. I used mini pretzels and Rolos. Instead of adding a pecan I placed another pretzel on top. The result was a pretzel chocolate sandwich. I'm not sure that I would make these again but it only took a matter of minutes to make. Update: People love these treats. I've made them about a dozen times and they are usually devoured in a matter of minutes!

Traditional Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2010
Good recipe. I used 4 medium sized russet baking potatoes. Next time I would probably decrease the amount of milk; my potatoes were almost too creamy. I also used about 1/2 cup of unsalted butter. I'm not sure how much salt I used but I added just enough. Update: I used 2 large russet potatoes, 1/2 cup of butter (yikes!) and between 1/2-3/4 cup of milk. Delicious!

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
I will make this recipe again. I did make a few minor alterations (half recipe): instead of almond extract, I used vanilla extract; I chopped the nuts, I used vegetable oil instead of olive oil; I did not add the salt because the pistachios were salted; and I used about 1/2 cup of dried cranberries.
