Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2007
Great recipe, both the family and friends truly enjoyed this banana bread.  Update:  I halved the recipe and made about 11 jumbo muffins.  It took about 25-30 minutes to cook.  Update 2: If halving the recipe use 2 eggs and 4 bananas.  At half the recipe it will make 12 regular size muffins and 6 jumbo muffins.  The regular muffins cooked in 28 minutes and the jumbo muffins cooked in 30 minutes.  I would start checking the muffins about 3 minutes before the time I have listed here.  Update 3: I halved the recipe, it made 3 regular size muffins and one 9x5 loaf.  The muffins cooked in 20 minutes and the loaf cooked in about 1hour and 10-15 minutes. Also, I didn't throughly read the recipe and I did not cream the sugar with the butter. Instead I mixed the butter in with the bananas and the other liquid ingredients.

Slow Cooker Beef Pot Roast

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2013
Changes to the recipe: 3.75 lb pot roast (well marbled purchased from Costco), 2 onions, 1 14oz can of chicken broth, 1/2 14oz can of beef broth, .75lb of cremini mushrooms, 2tbs of flour, 3/4 of a 16 oz bag of baby carrots, no tomato paste, no thyme and no rosemary. I coated the pot roast with salt, pepper and flour. I then browned the roast and transferred it to the crockpot. Since I used baby carrorts I did not chop them. The roast cooked for 4.5-5.5 hours. When done, I transferred the cooking liquid to a pot and brought it to a soft boil. I think mashed 3tbs of corn starch and 3tbs of butter together in a bowl. I then transferred the mash to boiling liquid and allowed to thicken. I will make this again.

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2010
I am not a cheesecake fan and I thought this was pretty good. I used 1/2 cup plus 2tbs of sugar and cooked it for a total of 36 minutes. The last minute I turned off the oven. I will make this again. Update: Instead of 1/2 cup of sugar I used 3/4 cup and baked the pie for 40 minutes.

Toasted Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
I used cibatta bread instead of italian and it was just as good. I was only able to butter about 6 slices of the bread but I was pretty generous with slathering each piece. I would definitely make this again. Also, even without the cheese it's a solide recipe.

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.

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
DELICIOUS!!! I halved the recipe and did the following: in a small bowl, add 1 tsp plus 1/8 tsp yeast and 1 tsp of sugar. Heat water to 110F and add to yeast/sugar mixture. Let mixture proof for 10 minutes. Melt butter in milk. In bigger bowl add 1 and 3/4 flour, 2tbs plus 1 tsp sugar. Mixed the wet with the dry ingredients. Since I didn't have bread machine, I kneaded the dough for 8 minutes, oiled dough and put in bowl to rise for 1 hour. After 1st rise, I punched the dough down, rolled dough into circle, brushed dough with butter,used pizza cutter to divide dough, rolled dough into crescents, dipped dough in butter and let dough rise for another hour. Baked at 400F for 10 minutes. Once finshed baking I brushed rolls with salted butter. Eat immediately!

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!

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2011
Very good cheesecake. Tips: Grease all sides and bottom of the springform pan. Use 2 cups of ground Oreo cookies, 2tbs of sugar and 6 tbs of butter for the crust. If you don't have half and half use heavy cream. For the cheesecake filling using 3/4 cup and 2 tbs of sugar. Although everyone's oven is different, I would definitely bake this for 60 minutes. Turn off oven, crack the door and allow to firm up (about 10 minutes).

Creamy Rice Pudding

Solid recipe. I used 1/2 cup of sugar instead of 1/3 cup. I like my rice pudding a little sweeter.

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2008
This was my first time making this type of dip and it turned out quite well. I did make a few minor modifications which I strongly recommend. The changes are as follows: 1)Add half of the taco mix to the beans and add the other half of the mix to the cream cheese and sour cream mixture. 2) Leave out the lettuce, green onions, and tomatoes. 3) In place of the letteuce, green onions, and tomatoes add guacamole. The guacomle should include onions and tomatoes mixed in (use one of the highly rated guacamole recipes on this website). 4) Layer the dip in the following order: beans (bottom), cream cheese/sour cream, guacamole, salsa, and cheese (top).

Homemade Butter

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2011
This couldn't be easier to make. I simply added the cream to my food processor and let it do the work. I word of advice, make sure to strain off all of the buttermilk and rinse the butter a few times to make sure the buttermilk is gone. I would recommend using cheesecloth to strain the butter but if that is not available a fine mesh strainer will work too.

Chef John's Buttermilk Biscuits

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2013
I cooked half of the recipe. I didn't have buttermilk on hand, so, I used 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons of milk and added 1/2 tablespoon of vinegar. I let it sit for about 5 minutes. I followed the recipe as is but instead of brushing buttermilk on the top of the biscuits, I dipped them in butter.

Dirt Cake I

Reviewed: May 30, 2008
This recipe is a favorite for children and adults! I'm not sure if it's necessary to add the butter/cream cheese/sugar mixture to the pudding mixture, therefore, next time I'll try making it without it.
